Q: I have an ACER M4 Series, Veriton desktop PC, Mode...

I have an ACER M4 Series, Veriton desktop PC, Model number M4618G-Ui5240W. The PC has an Inter Core i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10 GHz, 4 GB of Ram and a 32 bit Operating System . I am running Windows 10. Recently it has begun failing during normal operations. The top of the monitor will flicker with horizontal lines corrupting the video image, followed by loss of output to the monitor which goes blank. The PC then either freezes with an annoying beeping sound that continues until I perform a hard shutdown or it completely shuts itself down. Any ideas what is causing this or what I can do to correct this issue?

Hidy ho all,

I've been tasked with coming up with a video card upgrade recommendation for an Acer Veriton X4600 G series tower.

They want a new graphics card recommendation for the tower, as my superior has narrowed down the problems its having to its current on board card.

I've done a bit of research, and found out that the model ships with a 220 Watt PSU. Which severely limits what cards I can recommend.

If I can't get a new card into this system, without upgrading the PSU as well, then I need to know what form factor power supply I need to recommend as well.

I'm going to keep googling around, to find that answer, but I'm hoping someone here might be able to save me some time and energy.

Help!
I have an Acer AST 160-US321H desktop PC that is not connected to the internet and used for home projects only. Today I can not get it to come up at all. I have turned it on and off several times hoping to reset whatever went wrong. Also, there is a red light shining next to the green power light once I power it up. Nothing happens on the screen. The CPU is running (at least the fan) but that's about it. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Pretty simple, check for updates. Make sure you didn't uninstall anything important.

Likely possibility: Something physically went wrong. If installing the drivers &/or updates doesn't work, go get that thing checked out.

Help if you can. I have been given a Acer Hard drive Veriton L460 from my work, it was an old version and wasn't required. My old hard drive shat it self, so I thought I could take this one home plug it in and start using it. How wrong was I. First of all its coming up with a Windows Xp Professional Log on screen. Nope I have no log on user name or password. I don't know how to clear this or get around it. I only want to use this PC for disks that I use for Genealogy...My old hard drive was a HP Pavilion a6020a Home PC (I hope this helps) it would read the disks just fine. I just need to replace the capacity of the hard drive to access the disks


I now use an Acer Laptop with windows7 and it doesn't read the disks (not compatible) and I use this for internet access.
Can you help to get the replacement unit to just to be able to read the disk?
look forward to your assistance

I have an Acer Veriton M460 which I am looking to upgrade. The graphics card recently died and I am looking for a new one, I would like to play games like League of Legends, World of tanks, CS:GO and a few easy to run games. I would also like to upgrade the RAM which I currently have 3gb of but I'm not sure how much the motherboard can support. I am looking to buy this http://goo.gl/5lXrgo however I'm not sure whether it will fit, if the PSU wattage can support it and if the CPU will be a bottleneck. I am unsure of the specs and I can't check because when I load up my PC everything is enlarged and I can't get around (I think this is because the Graphics card is broken, so I would also appreciate if you could help me change the resolution, and if factory resetting it would work that'd be great because I'm planning to anyway) , however I do know the CPU is an Intel duo 2 quad core G660. I have a budget of 110 for the graphics card (If the one I suggested won't work) and I will only need 4gb of RAM which won't be much money (a suggestion would be nice though please!). I can't afford a whole new system yet so I'm just upgrading this, I know it seems like a lot but it won't come anywhere near the cost of a new PC. Sorry for asking a lot I just can't be sure as I can't see my system specs because I can't get on my PC and there isn't much on the internet about it as it's a fairly old system.

Hi, I'm just about to send my Acer Veriton M464 pc back to Acer to find out why it won't output to a Dell™ 1503FP Flat Panel Color Monitor with a DVI cable, either from my Nvidia 9500GT 1Gb card or the DVI output on the Motherboard.

The Acer Tech who booked it in for investigation thought it was a Mobo fault. A tech at Maplins reckoned that DVI needed to be switched on at the Control Panel > Display > DVI

I'm positive that the PC would automatically recognise a DVI monitor from the outset because of PnP. He thinks that Acer don't switch that on automatically. His advice does appear suspect, because, running Vista Business in Control Panel there is no Display Option, and I can't find anything that does suggest manually choosing between DVI and VGA. When I mentioned a Bios setting to the Acer tech, he said that an LCD monitor is recognised by the VGA/EGA setting.

Can anyone advise. Thank you.

PS when Dell monitor is connected to the 9500GT dvi port or the mobo dvi port, I don't get the Acer bootup screen and the PC doesn't boot up, it just hangs. I get the beep and that is it, with no display.

I just tried putting Win7 on this old Veriton and it seems alright except no sound.

Dxdiag reports no audio drivers at all.

What options do I have? Any drivers for these old Veritons? That's a G945 board. All G945's would use the same win7 driver, would they? Are there any?

Otherwise I have to add in a sound card? Or an audio dongle these days?

Can't go to Win10, I suppose. That would be even worse wouldn't it? Yet more modern, leaving this old machine way behind? If there's no win7 drivers for it there wouldn't be win10 drivers would there?

A:Sound Drivers for Win7 on Acer Veriton 5800

I haven't researched this PC, but most PC's designed for XP and only XP sound drivers will not work in Vista/Win 7 as Microsoft changed the way sound was handled in Vista and thus a new driver was required. In most cases it will require installing a separate sound card (or using a USB connected sound card) to have audio.

To answer your question, if there are no Win 7 drivers most likely no Win 10 drivers. Win 8.1/Win 10 require even different sound drivers as the Vista/Win 7 sound drivers are not compatible and many other drivers may not be available.

I think this started happening today. It starts whistling as soon as I power up my PC. I googled it a bit first and some said the monitor is dying, and others said it had to do with a fan. I have no idea how to open this thing to check, though (not that I have any idea what I'm doing anyway), and the screws are really weird. I wouldn't be able to get them off with a normal screwdriver because the screws are smooth.

Attached a picture of the back of the PC. Not sure how I'd even get the back off once the screws came out anyway.
Please, help me! I can't take this sound anymore.

I basically upgraded to Windows 10 right out of the box, and two days after install, it looks like a Windows update has wiped out the wifi on the computer. Before rolling back with System Restore, I was wondering if there were wifi drivers for the Veriton N2620G I could try using. At this point I'm not sure if the wifi has actually failed or if it's a Windows 10 Update that's caused the failure.  Plugging it into the router directly wouldn't be impossible, but a tremendous annoyance.

Hi everyone I am having problems with the sound card on my ACER PC and I asked the people I brought my 2nd hand ACER Veriton 3500v from what they did to the PC re formatting the HDD and loading it up with WIN XP Pro again. Apparently they used a program called KIlldisk that wrote 0?s to the HDD before they formatted it? They formatted it in FAT32 then loaded the op system.

As the sound card etc was working o?k prior to them doing this would it have been possible that using KIlldisk has turned ?off ? some how the sound card etc? And if so how can I turn it back on? I keep getting a msg Multimedia Audio Controller not loaded code 28 can you help.

I just tried putting Win7 on this old Veriton and it seems alright except no sound.

Dxdiag reports no audio drivers at all.

What options do I have? Any drivers for these old Veritons? That's a G945 board. All G945's would use the same win7 driver, would they? Are there any?

Otherwise I have to add in a sound card? Or an audio dongle these days?

Can't go to Win10, I suppose. That would be even worse wouldn't it? Yet more modern, leaving this old machine way behind? If there's no win7 drivers for it there wouldn't be win10 drivers would there?

A:Sound Drivers for Win7 on Acer Veriton 5800

I haven't researched this PC, but most PC's designed for XP and only XP sound drivers will not work in Vista/Win 7 as Microsoft changed the way sound was handled in Vista and thus a new driver was required. In most cases it will require installing a separate sound card (or using a USB connected sound card) to have audio.

To answer your question, if there are no Win 7 drivers most likely no Win 10 drivers. Win 8.1/Win 10 require even different sound drivers as the Vista/Win 7 sound drivers are not compatible and many other drivers may not be available.

When I put my computer to sleep, it stops, and it starts as soon as I turn my computer on. Changes frequency right before the login screen comes on, and then it stays the same after that. My PC also takes a while to start up now. I have to shut it off and back on maybe 2-3 times before it'll boot up. Just a few minutes ago, Windows sent me to this uh... resume(?) screen that I've NEVER seen before.

Are these 2 things completely unrelated? Could I possibly have a virus that's causing this?

edit: it also changes frequency during windows' admin program run notification

hi! found this site after a google search for computer help!

so i recently bought 4 acer veriton L410 PC's as i want something small for a media PC and also a friend does.

First of all after trying many times on a couple of them i can not get windows 7 to boot!

it goes through the install process fine but towards the end when it re-boots to then boot the OS from the hard drive it just wont boot, it comes up with "verifying DMI pool data........... update success" and just hangs there

if i install either windows XP or Vista it doesnt have this problem and boots the OS fine.

i cant understand why this is its really bugging me!

secondly one of the 4 machines after installing windows (vista) and during the install the screen keeps loosing the signal from the machine, "no signal from pc" i know for sure the T.V im using and the cables are fine as they work fine with the others, i have installed the drivers for teh machine from Acer site.

i swapped out the RAM (long shot i think but worth a try) and no change, i think its likley to be a problem with the video card which i believe is on board, and i dont think its possible to put another card into this machine, there is no PCI/PCI-E slots.

any advice here would be great!
 

A:Acer Veriton L410 cant boot windows 7 and screen keeps loosing signal from machine

I'm no computer genius, but I knew that having unused programmes on my laptop can't be helping my running speed etc, so in a bid to be quicker I decided to have a clean up.
I went into my add/remove programmes and got rid of a few things...

- MSN messenger
- Adobe Photoshop
- And a few other things I deemed unnecessary.

After that I had no sound. I tired a system restore, nothing, and I've been on the acer website and downloaded the audio driver, still nothing.
I'm running XP, as I tried vista and my laptop didn't take to kindly to this upgrade.

So any help would be very much appreciated. I'm not a major rush, so if it take a week or so of process of elimination I honestly don't mind, its just terrible sat with a silent laptop.

Thanks a lot, Eleanor.

Hi

My daughter has this laptop running Vista and it has crashed completely. It tries to start Vista but then freezes before it gets into the operating system. I can get into command prompt and see that the only drive it has has changed from C to X but all the system and personal files are still there. It would appear Windows might be corrupt although I haven't ruled out a hardware conflict at this stage. My question is how can I retrieve and backup the personal files with a USB portable drive which I have before I format and reinstall Windows. She has files she would hate to lose so any help in getting at these to backup would be greatly appreciated. Also not sure how to access reinstall of Windows as she received no CD when she bought it new. I believe it is installed somewhere on the hard drive.

Common windows XP error. Check to be sure you have all the driver updates from Acer, then make sure you have all the Microsoft updates.
It is not the motherboard. But the fix is different for every computer brand.
I assume you have scanned for virus and spyware, in both normal and Safe Mode.
If you have a copy of Windows XP disk that will allow a Repair mode from a cold boot, that usually takes care of it, otherwise.

Hi,
My b-in-l has just bought an Acer 3000 series laptop. It appears to be partitioned into two sections, C & D ~ both of which are around 37Gb in capacity.

When we right-clicked on the C icon and chose properties, it comes up that 35GB is used up with only around 2.5Gb left ~ this would appear to be exactly the opposite of the way things actually are! Any ideas what the problem is and how it can be rectified? We've run chkdsk (no problems found) and cleaned all the rubbish out but it hasn't made much difference.

Hello everyone, I purchased an Acer Aspire 5742 Series Laptop . That is an I3 processor.

MY daughter was having problems with it simply turning off. After looking at and running Real Temp and Prime 95, I believed it was simple over heating .

It is under warranty so I took it in for repair, I just picked it up and they said the fan and vents needed cleaning, that is why it is getting hot and shutting down.

Now I re-ran Prime 95 and it still shut down after 1 hour roughly. Real Temp said it was 89 Degrees C.

So is this normal for laptops??? I costume build my PC and it never shuts down on running Prime 95. Even I did overclocked it.

SO what recommendation do you have? I can take it back (warranty) but I do not have the faith they will fix it ! Since I say no BSOD I am not sure any reports will help. It is a Clean windows 7 install.

A:Acer Aspire 5742 Series Laptop Over Heating

Hello Becky -

By design, laptops just aren't as efficient as desktops when it comes to cooling. Components are bunched together in a small space and the fan is usually underpowered and doesn't move a lot of air. Generally speaking, laptops need to be used on a hard, flat surface like a tabletop and not on a pillow, bedspread, or even a lap. Vents and fan will surely be blocked adding to the heat build up. Many people even use a laptop cooling pad to help with air circulation.

Laptop cooler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But there's another consideration that may prompt you to take the laptop back in for warranty service. It's possible that a heat sink or thermal paste was improperly installed during production. No amount of cleaning will correct that kind of problem. Some additional thoughts:

If you have tried an external monitor (which you said you have) and nothing displayed on boot whilst plugged into the external monitor, I would say that the built-in video is bad. I would advise your friend/client/relative to purchase a new laptop or see if you can find a cheap, used mobo on Ebay to replace it because the video cannot easily be replaced (soldered onto motherboard).
