Acer Aspire 5100- Freeze when in Power Saver mode

Hello all,

I bought my Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook back in September. It has been a great machine. It runs Vista Home Premium

However, I have had a slight problem for quite some time. Unfortunately, when Power Save Mode is selected from the power profiles, it will freeze after using it for a little while.

I have tried tweaking the power plan, and it didn't work. I uninstalled the Acer Empowering Technology suite as well

I have searched for a while and found no definitive solution to this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Thank you.

    I don't really know what drivers to install.



    Acer told me to try acer eRecovery management, but I uninstalled the empowering software, and when I tried to re-install it, it said, "Sorry! This is not an Acer system."



    Which is quite bizarre, because it IS!



    I'm out of ideas.

I bet it's overheating. get some compressed air and blast out those ducts. Laptops typically accumulate a ton of dust and that can cause the machine to overheat.

Same problem, bluetooth not working


Hello sushma_visha,

Sadly, the Acer Aspire 5100 notebook computer only has an 'optional' bluetooth module. However, a bluetooth usb adapter can be installed to add bluetooth functionality. Here is a link to the Acer Aspire 5100 specifications web page. As you can see, bluetooth is not mentioned in the specifications: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Aspire5100/Aspire5100sp2.shtml

Screen saver


A single image cannot be set as a screensaver unless you are running some kind of slideshow screensaver software. Single images can only be set as background or wallpaper.

Acer aspire 5720


thats because Acer put their own screen saver on when building them, it's not part of windows.

I'm sure a google search will come up with an Acer screen saver

Acer aspire 5100 - screen is turned off, cant turn it back on


The bios beep codes indicate the video card is not working, so you won't see anything on the screen.

Your video card is either dead, or is not contacting the board correctly.
If you are keen to open it up I will offer instructions to assist you. But in reality, your safest bet is to take it to a laptop shop and get them to do it. There are a lot of tiny screws in these things.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
