Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop freezes up when battery connected

Spent hours before discovering the problem is related to the battery. Once that was found out i did some online searches to see if this was a common problem. I've found a few cases where other people have experienced the same type of thing. Is it better to run the laptop with no battery or with the microsoft ACPI complience device dissabled? Is this a permanent fix or do i need to order a new battery? If so does anyone know the best place to buy one from?

With ACPI power management, the computer has the ability to function as follows: ? The computer is ready for immediate use when the user turns it on. ? The computer appears to be off when not in use, but it can still respond to wakeup events. Wakeup events can occur when a device receives input, such as a telephone ringing, or when software requests that the computer wake up at a predetermined time (for example, to download e-mail so it is ready in the morning). ? The system can change how software responds when the power state of the computer changes. The operating system and applications work together to operate the computer and deliver effective power management according to the user's current actions. Applications do not keep the computer busy unnecessarily; instead, they proactively participate in shutting down the computer to conserve energy and reduce noise. It is best to turn the ACPI on and buy a new battery. I would shop on the internet. Try;

Where do i find the keyboard passcode?

Typically when the keyboard is turned on, the device discovers it. Once the device discovers it, you should be able to press connect on the keyboard and the Bluetooth pairing request with the code should pop up on your device. Then you should be able to enter the code on the keyboard, press enter and connect.

I doubt it if your keybaord is locked, you probably have other issues in your laptop preventing you from using your keyboard. You can check this by connecting a standard USB keyboard from a desktop.

Turned the camera on but screen display says MSDC and can turn not camera off

Make sure the battery is inserted correctly. We spent 5 hours complaining about the camera we bought for our daughter because we couldn't get rid of the MSDC message. We had put the battery back in it upside-down after inserting the memory card; she is the one who discovered our mistake.

My GMC sierra side mirror is loose on from the amr. The mirros is fine it is the little swivel that is looses and the mirror constantly moves. I am unable to remove the mirror to get to the problem.

I just spent about 2 hours trying to resolve the same problem, and discovered that there doesn't appear to be any way to repair the mirror without purchasing a whole new one. There a 3 screws you can access by slanting the mirror to the extemes in both the up or down positions. Once they are removed I discovered a 4th screw (once I broke the plastic pieces surrounding the mirror appart) that there is a 4th screw that is impossible to reach without removing the actual mirror part. In any case I discovered that the reason that the mirror was floppy is because there was a funny looking nut that is supposed to lock in the spring mechanism that was completely stipped and non functional. Better luck than me!

This could be either hardware or software related. If you could tell us what the exact blue screen is I can be more specific in my answer. The possible causes for this could be virus/malware, corrupted registry(which could be due to failing harddrive), faulty memory, or faulty motherboard.

BTW, the "reload" they did will not fix much, which is why you had the same problem within days.
