Re: problems with the mainboard

It could be a number of things motherboard, mother board settings, power adapter, battery.

1.strip it down to what it came with ie remove everthing that is connected to it- all usb devices, battery, then plug it in with just the power adapter.

2. try resetting nvram- this is at acers website make sure its for your model. using a different power adapter or just on battery(if you have one).

3. Take it to datadoctors as they are good. have them use another adapter so you do not have to buy another one.

My laptop fell a couple of days ago and since then there's no sound.

If it works but you get no sound, you should thank almighty that miracle happened. Most laptops never "survive" a drop..
Normally laptops have audio integrated to motherboard, so there is nothing servicable for ordinary users.
Guess your solution might be to use an external USB audio card.
Your internal speakers won't work buy you'll be able to listen through extenal speakers or a headphone

My laptop turns on, but shuts off immideately. I don't hear the fan running. A couple days ago I used compressed air to clean the fan area (not opening up, but throught the vents) what is the problem?


There's a good chance that your fan is toast, and you may need to replace it.

If the computer turns on and quickly shuts off, with the fan not running, leads me to believe that the shutdowns are caused by the system overheating.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like either a driver problem or a defective graphics chip. Is this a new or older notebook? Determine your graphics manufacturer and try downloading their latest driver for your video graphics software or hardware driver.

If it is a defective chip, you will need to contact the notebook manufacturer to get repair service. If the notebook is less than a year old you should be able to get the service for free. If you have an extended warranty then it should cover your situation.

Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5100 ; mouse freezes right after boot up

hi, yes it is a motherboard issue-i have 2 of those with same problem. new boards for that model are costly. however i found a work around-get a usb pcmcia card put it in the slot on the side-then plug your mouse or other usb devices and you should be ok! I did this a year ago and it runs like new! way cheaper than getting a new one. this is a big problem with these 5100 models. acer no help-other than selling you a new mainboard. this is the best way 2 make it work again. the pcmcia cards are cheap enough. and after that you can get a usb hub if you need more ports. good luck! and please rate this solution. and make sure 2 turn on the cardbus if not on allready. (in epower manager) this will work! reply if you need help! be well!

Compaq presario c300 usb problem

Well instead of repairing it have you tried an external usb pcmcia card? They are cheep and mine is usb2 4 port on a pcmcia and works fine. Just a sugestion for you. It runs about $14.00. I ave a 900 Compaq and the first to go was the dvd/cd [ replaced ] then the battery [ running off a cordless drill battery now ] and then the usb. I know your question was about fixing this but an easier way is described above. Over current on the usb port is no problem with the pcmcia 4 port usb card as if you need more current, it comes with an external power supply only if needed. I have never had to use this external supply yet. It supplies [ the card ] up to 800ma.
Hope this helped a little...

There is a high probability that your laptop has been fried, especially if it was plugged into the mains at the time of the lightning strike.
A lightning strike could damage many components and even if you could get it fixed (most likely require a motherboard replacement) there are no guarentees that some other component won't fail in the future.
If it was me, I would put my money towards a new laptop and get a surge/lightning protection power board and disconnect the laptop from the main during a lightning storm.

Disabling the touchpad on HP 530

Go into your windows device manager.
Search for your touchpad (should call synaptics input device)
give it a right click and disable the device.

I rather think that your mainboard is having problems, tried a bios upgrade and the latest drivers yet?
