Question about Acer Aspire 9805WKHi Notebook

Computer turns itself On

Hi, I got my refurbished Acer Aspire a few months ago, and nearly five times out of the week after turning my computer off at night, when I come back in the morning, it's on again! I check the system on-time, and it will range from turning on right after I turn it off to being on just half an hour before I return to it. I have no idea what's making it do this. Someone suggested to me that maybe the lid is pressing the power button, but I don't think that's very likely. If you have any other suggestions on what this might be, please let me know.

Re: Computer turns itself On

My 9805 has same problem. I think it has to do with power surges. If I unplug the laptop, it doe not have this problem..Also, I find the same problem if I am using different remotes near it. The tv remote will turn it on.

Re: Computer turns itself On

The turn off settings must be wrong, there should be a empower programme if it;s been refurbed properly with the software that tells the pc to turn off or log off or hibernate when you shut down the pc. Either that or you are logging off and not shutting down, then closing the lid and then if theres a antivirus programme or other shedulled to run awakes the pc although you think its off, i would do as you normally do to shut it off then press the liitle rubber pin just below the screen and see if it restarts and opens up a programme.

Acer aspire 5520 shut down after turned on for a few seconds

Hi Chritina,

I understand the frustration but this issue happens if the issue is with the hardware. It may be due to overheating of the computer, any hardware conflicts or malfunction, or may be due to Operating System corruption. Please try the below steps:

1. Keep on tapping F2 key on your computer keyboard as soon as you hit the power button.
2. Then press F9 key, press "Y" to confirm and then Press "F10" and press "Y" to confirm, the computer will restart.

It should take care of the issue, however, if the issue still persists, then follow the below mentioned steps:

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the data on the computer.

However, if the issue still persists then the computer needs a Motherboard replacement, in that case you may need to contact Acer Technical support at 1 800 816 2237 and arrange a Depot Repair for the computer.

Thanks and regards,

I tried to get computer back to factory settings and now i turn it on and the screen is black,it sounds like it is running though,and also the 2 lock buttons light up when turning it on..please help

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.
