Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5022 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an Acer 5920G running Vista Premium which I purchased from Amazon 16th. December 2008. A number of times I have had problems starting up and have had to run the start up repair tool and restore to a previous date. Sometimes this would work, and other times not. Sometimes, in frustration, I would put the laptop away and forget it for a few days, after which, it would work perfectly from the first press of the button! Three weeks ago I was preparing to take it on holiday, but no, it would not boot up.I had left it on charge for some hours and the battery light was showing green. On pressing the start button the power light and the media buttons illuminated, the hard drive indicator came on for about 3 seconds and then went off. The screen was black. Thats as far as it would go. Needless to say, I did not take it with me. On my return, 2 weeks later, I pressed the start button and it performed perfectly all day!! The next day, back to square one - nothing. I've tried removing the battery, replacing and recharging but no luck. I need some assistance - this thing is driving me nuts! Regards, Doug Craig

Hi,
I hope it would still under warranty so please ask for replacement to Amazon because it seems hardware issue with laptop.

Return it to Amazon and get replacement is better choice.
Thanks.

Best suggestion would be to back up all files and restore your computer using acer e-recovery manager. That will restore your pc to factory default. If that doesn't work then you should contact acer who generally are happy to help.

Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the inconvenience that you have experienced. I suggest you try reinstalling the software and driver for the OrbiCam. I am providing these instructions below.

1. Move your mouse over the Empowering technology widget and click on the eRecovery Manager icon or you may also press ALT and F10 on the keyboard to start the program. Please note: The first time you access the eRecovery feature, you are prompted to create a password. If you forget it then you will have to use the recovery discs to reformat the system.
2. In the next window look at the bottom of the window and choose Restore.
3. Now choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers
4. Choose Install
5. Click on Windows Vista on the left side of the page
6. Choose Applications and then choose CCD. It may also be under Camera in the drivers section.
7. On the right click the install link and follow the prompts.
8. The system may restart when installation is complete
Do not allow the system to shut down during this process. Plug in the AC adapter if necessary.

Respectfully,
Acer America

Widows vista compatable


make sure you have the latest version of the program and the latest updates for your OS (you could even try older versions of the software). Is the software compatible with vista? Try and run the program in safe mode... If it still don't work then maybe it just isn't compatible with your current system configuration (google the problem to see if others had the same issue). does it freeze other computers running vista? Ask yourself these types of questions to narrow down the possiblities and therefore finding the source of your problem. If you require additional assistance just come back and one of us will promptly answer your questions :)

Acer Aspire 5920G startup issues


If unit is not booting you cannot use the system restore tool. And if you have not created back up disks .................

At least you did not have the machine long enough to really load it up so reloading it will not be so bad. However, ......

Maybe you picked up some computer clap? Using another machine download the malware bytes program onto a usb stick and then boot up your vista machine via the F 8 prompt (desktop + networking) during bootup.

Then when on simple desktop, insert usb stick and navigate to the file downloaded and run the app from there. Good luck!!!
