Question about Acer Aspire 5720 6497 Laptop

1 Answer

Desktop permantly frozen

Hi, Bought this laptop for my son in december, Now all of a sudden it stopped working, I switch it on,says press f2 to go to setup, Then boot to OS, I press nothing and it goes to windows didnt shut down properly and gives me a list of options, I pressed start up repair, It says attempting repairs while running a scan. Then when windows reloads i attempt to click anything it just freezes and cant do nothing, Then i have to click the power to turn it off and then get the same as above all over again. Im a complete novice and no idea what to do, I have looked on internet and worried if i send to acer and its my son who had messed it up i will have to pay for them to fix it even thou it is still under warranty? I have the recovery discs but unsure on how i would go about using them. Any Advice much appreciated

Packard Bell Laptop: Hi every time I switch on my laptop it goes onto the PB screen mode & it takes about 2 to 3 minutes to boot up. Also at the bottom of the screen it says press F2. Can you...

Hi there.

What do you mean by pb screen?

When you see the f2 screen, is that upon boot up? If it is, pressing F2 will take you to BIOS settings.

Ill be waiting for your reply.

When i switch on my compaq presario V2000 laptop it beeps three times and then freezes giving me the option to press f1 or f10 but when i press f1 or f10 it still doesn't work and is still frozen

Actually beep sound indicates hardware error or BIOS error.
Don't press F10 while starting.
Let your laptop to start wait for 10min....
If it will not starts..........
Press F1(BIOS Settings for some pc F2 is Bois Setting)

If it will load BIOS.......... then your BIOS is OK

Then you need to change hard disk...

If not you need to change BIOS hardware(IF you i will tell you the way restore BIOS but it's very difficult task.It needs a trained person.)

Thank you have a nice day............

hi thanks for using fixya!

I suggest that you should bring your laptop from your retailer in which you bought the laptop. I'm sure that it is still under warranty.

Acer aspire lost internet connection how do i connect

Look on the Function keys on the keyboard (the F1 through F12 keys) Do you see a wireless icon on one of the keys? If you do, then look for a Function (Fn) key on the keyboard. Press and hold Fn, while holding Fn, press the funtion key with the wireless icon (example: the wireless icon is on the F2 key; press and hold the Fn key, while holding the Fn key, press F2, release both keys).

Laptop Touchpad - cursor random dragging problem

On my acer all I have to do is press function F7, Function is the button with 'Fn' on it. I am not sure if that works for HP, but its worth a try. Also, is there a switch near the touchpad? Sometimes there is one that switches the touch pad on and off. You can also try other Fn(function) F1 or Fn F2 etc. and see if one of the other "f" buttons work.  I hope this helps, let me know how you made out. Good Luck!
