Hi I just bought an Acer Travel Mate 5742 a month ago and its been workin perfectly. Howerver ;today when i switch on I just get the acer desktop screen it does not change to the next screen to...

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Acer Aspire 5520 screen and NVIDIA driver problems

its a hardware issue, and why its your motherboard on laptop have a problem, not physically but i think your try to re-update your BIOS to clear out all the malfunction chips inside your laptop. This problem was actually i encountered before but no one also understand why is always came back the problem on it. Go to the website on the ACER to download the latest BIOS updates on it.
You should install it one by one or step by step like for example 1.0 then 2.0, like that. And don't be so hurry the BIOS is a very delicate setup rather than Windows System.
Basically restore the BIOS setting on default after that installation.
This installation might help to you with that problem and dont forget to unplug all unnecessary input devices so that it will not hang up again. Afterwards run Disc Recovery Disk to setup Windows System, good luck! Bboy

Brand New laptop, won't start

Try taking the battery out before you turn it on. Have seen completely a dead dead battery keeping a laptop from starting up. Does the hard drive activity light flickering? If it is you can try holding down the Function button (FN) and there should be another button to hit to switch between LCD\CRT.

Screen Blank

there is a connection problem with the screen or a graphics chip fault, being as it's only 6 months old, do not void the warranty by trying to remove anything, return to your original selling retailer

Acer Aspire 5720Z Notebook - Screen flickers, goes blank then comes back on when screen/lid is adjusted

I have the same problem. It happened to me about half a year ago and reinstalling the OS solved it. So it's by no chance a hardware problem. I have a Acer TravelMate 6291. It must be some kind of a software problem, but don't know which one :-(
