Question about Acer Aspire 1360 Notebook

1 Answer

Gfx card or overheating or power management or memory or what? problem

I have the Acer 1363WLMi. Standby mode does not work, frezzes with black screen once activated. I dont use it so that is not a major issue.
The thing that bugs me the most it is graphic adapter issue.
It will work fine for not really specific period of time. Crashes powered on battery, while charging and on AC power as well.
The problem looks like this - will start with small vertical lines running randomly through the screen and will just get worse - the screen will go black for a second, fan will start (!) and it will eventually crash with frozen distorted screen and one long and two short beeps. That seems to say that the display adapter is malfunctioning but reset it and it will go back to normal. It kinda starts with a ‘click’ in the hard drive.
how to fix the darn thing? s.o.s.!

Hey, I had a 1522wlmi, witch is the brother model of your laptop, the models have issues, parts fail within 12months. Your only option to get the problem fixed is to send your vga card to www.acerparts.com by ordering a replacement model. Only option is repairflow as far as i know at the time.

I had my vgaboard at acerparts for 6months, I got it back but had issues with games, i send it back waited a few months and got my money back.

Then I send my laptop to my local acer. It was analysed since it had taken more than 3 months to replace my card. I they suggested to repair the laptop for 300eur thats around 400-500 usd. Im pretty sure it wont last more than 12months so in the long run your better off buying a new laptop, dont buy acer.

Good luck.

Do the same thing go to Advaced boot option(pressing F8)
Select "Safe mode with networking"
See if it works
If you reach the desktop screen purchase a USB flash drive and copy the entire data in it

Otherwise take out your hard drive take it to a near by store

Plugged up came on about 20 minutes later shut down and went to a yellow blinking mode monitor stays yellow i unplug monitor from cpu and works good do you have any suggestions


Could be getting too hot. Make sure all fans, cooling fins, heat sinks, HDD vents and weep holes are unobstructed and clean. Many computers have a BIOS screen at startup that will display system temp. Start it up and enter the BIOS, check CPU temp. Most PC's will shutdowm or reboot if temp exceeds 140 (this can be adjusted).

If not overheating, could be fault in a memory module, HDD failure, or CPU itself. But that's not that common in the scenario you're talkin about

Problem black screen for acer aspire 5050


Probably the video card. Check in Device manager to ensure the drivers are not corrupt. If they are there will be a yellow, red or black sign next to the video device. Right click, uninstall the driver then reboot. The plug and play will load the correct driver. If that does not work then replacing the video card is needed.

1. Removed your MMC card first.

2. Make sure you have at least 3/4 charge of battery before performing the

3. Press and hold the ABC key and then press the power button.
Remember not to release the ABC key till you seen the

(Fyi, there's no special indicator that telling yo're on a "Safe Mode"

4. Once in the "Safe Mode" stanby screen press *#7370# to carry-out "Phone Reset"
task.

5. Once "Phone Reset" task completed and back to normal standby screen again,
switch off your phone and re-insert your MMCmag-glass_10x10.gif card.

If any error showing on the phone boot-up, please have the memory card formatted and by next phone
start-up you will not have the error msg again.

If you some important data or programs files on your MMC card, please use
a card reader to have them copied onto a pc before performing memory card
formatting

Blank screen


Check the fan on your video card if it has one. If it does have one and it's not working correctly then it will overheat very quickly.
This sort of issue can be caused by a million things but your description points to the card overheating or the memory on the video card dying.

Dell monitor power down mode with Geforce GFX card install


I think maybe some how the main graphics for your pc has possibly switched to onboard. Try getting into bios F2 or DEl on boot up and highlight Advanced ChipsetFeatures and press Enter. In here make sure your AGP card is set as the Primary graphics controller. When done press ESC and 'Y' to save settings, then re-boot pc. Hope this gets you running again.
