I have an ACER Aspire 5100 purchased in February 2007 and for the past two weeks it has been giving me trouble to load. I have to constantly restart or shutdown the computer for it to load properly. Any suggestions on what is wrong and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

There are many details missing here but 1st
1. you may have a hard drive issue / the hard drive may need to be defragmented
2. You may have a power supply issue not enough power to power the mother board due to a failing power supply
3. your system may be set to sleep mode.
these are a few things to check.
More information is need to give a more detailed response to this issu

It may be the board failing as I have the same machine and if I shut it down and move it it will give me a hard drive fail error and won't reboot unless I reboot it a couple of times with the power button. I have replaced the drive and I am still Having the same error message. Hope this helps as I am going to contact acer about this.

Neeed to install sm bus controler driver for Acer aspire 5100 dos anyone knows where to get it


The sm bus controller can usually be loaded from the chipset download available at Acer support drivers. If you have XP, I will include a link below for the driver download. I will also include the link to Acer support, just cick on drivers > put in "notebook" > "Aspire" > 5100. A list of drivers will appear, pick your operating system from the drop down menu and under that a list of driver downloads will appear. Download the drivers for "chipset" and "Card bus reader" . Make sure to copy the entire link below and paste to your browser address bar. If the link doews not complete, go to the link further down, and follow the directions above.

Does the Aspire 5100 have bluethooth


Hi,

This do not have Inbuilt Bluetooth Function. This Model only have Bluetooth Module. If you wish, you could Purchase a Bluetooth Kit and have that Function installed :-

http://www.notebooksolutions.ca/zc/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=2037&zenid=3d219fb2254791e6177a79a33c4ce4ea

Most of the Acer Models do not have Inbuilt Bluetooth. Usually i would say, use Bluetooth Toggle, rather than Purchasing a kit. A Bluetooth toggle is just like a Pen Drive.You need to install the CD and load the software. Once Loaded, insert the Toggle in the USB of the Computer and synchronize it with other device.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/

Acer Aspire 5100-5840 USB Problems


Is your laptop still under warranty? I would go to the manufacturer first if it is.
If not:
the system clock is run by the CMOS battery. When low will cause a host of problems. Change it and let me know if this fixes your problem.
