Computer turns itself On

Hi, I got my refurbished Acer Aspire a few months ago, and nearly five times out of the week after turning my computer off at night, when I come back in the morning, it's on again! I check the system on-time, and it will range from turning on right after I turn it off to being on just half an hour before I return to it. I have no idea what's making it do this. Someone suggested to me that maybe the lid is pressing the power button, but I don't think that's very likely. If you have any other suggestions on what this might be, please let me know.

My 9805 has same problem. I think it has to do with power surges. If I unplug the laptop, it doe not have this problem..Also, I find the same problem if I am using different remotes near it. The tv remote will turn it on.

The turn off settings must be wrong, there should be a empower programme if it;s been refurbed properly with the software that tells the pc to turn off or log off or hibernate when you shut down the pc. Either that or you are logging off and not shutting down, then closing the lid and then if theres a antivirus programme or other shedulled to run awakes the pc although you think its off, i would do as you normally do to shut it off then press the liitle rubber pin just below the screen and see if it restarts and opens up a programme.

I bought this computer a couple of months ago and have used it about 3 times. When I turned it on, there was no power and it was fully charged before I went offline the last time. Now my battery icon...

> bought this computer a couple of months ago

Then, it should be FULLY covered under WARRANTY, either from the store from where you bought it, or from ACER.

> new battery from COSTCO

It's probably 100% fine; it's your laptop that is the problem.

Exercise the WARRANTY to get the laptop repaired/replaced, at NO COST to you.

I have acer aspire 5740, purchased 10 months ago from us , what I facing that in a night time my battery completely drained out without any apparent reason b/c in normal working it give me reasonable back...

Are you turning it off at night or just using sleep mode? Turn it off!

Also if you use them on AC power most of the time the batteries tend to hold less and less of a charge as time go's by. You should use them on and off with just battery till it's almost dead, it will hold a better charge then.

I have an acer aspire one computer and have only had it a few months. a few nights ago, the battery wouldn't charge past 91%. the next night, it would only charge 90%, then 88%, and now it won't pass 24%....

try running the battery out completely and then recharge it while the computer is running. if this doesn't resolve the problem, you got a faulty battery, and need to have the manufacturer replace it.

Try to remove the battery en put the adapter in electricity.
Try to start again.
If the notebook starts,
replace your battery.

If this doesn't work,
just go to the store where you bought it

Another speaker problem

This is because your inbuilt microphone is probably set at boost, and picking up the sound of speakers. Go to speaker icon in task bar an select 'Open volume control' and click on options, then advanced controls, then click mute on the microphone slider control.
