Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook

Acer Aspire 5520 - Help!

Hi all. I've had my laptop for just over 6 months and everything was fine (apart from the touchpad having a mind of its own!) Just before Christmas I noticed that webpages were freezing or taking age to load or not at all.......however, other laptops in the house were working fine so it was not the internet connection, so the only remedy seemed to be was to reboot the laptop, however occasionally as it would boot back up the whole system would just close down, after a few minutes I would turn it on and it would go to the Windows Error Recovery page.

However, I did this last night but instead of "Start Windows Normally" and went on to "Launch System Repair" as it was being recommended and it said something about Volume Memory Corruption" but there were no corrections for me to make or anything so there were no changes made. However, now I can not get onto Windows. I keep getting back to the Windows Recovery Error page and its driving me mad.

Has anyone got any ideas what is wrong? Many thanks!

Can you click "start" usually on the right bottom screen? if you can, then there will be a list of all your programs. at the very bottom there is a search bar. There, type in "system restore." after going though this process, your computer should be normal.

I've just bought a new Acer Aspire 5742Z and the smart pad has suddenly stopped working. Any idea whether it's likely to be a hardware or software issue and how to fix it? I've tried...


Hi jennylewry...


To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.

My laptop is only a few months old, and the touchpad randomly stopped working....what can i do?


If you have already tried another mouse and works fine in Windows OS then the problem gets narrowed down to the touchpad being faulty and would have to replace it but don't discard the touchpad could be accidently disabled in the control panel of the mouse properties. Dell laptops usually have a driver chipset and driver for the mouse touchpad specifically which you can get on support.dell.com

try reinstalling before getting new touchpad part for your laptop. Dell has spareparts where you can buy a refurb one and install yourself. Instructions on how to take apart your laptop is on the same site.

Freezes\stops at the bios start up screen...


hi, there is a common fault on this model, to do with a bga chip (ball grid array) just underneath the touchpad. try appling a small a mount of pressure with 2 fingers just above the touchpad on the plastic between the keyboard and touchpad while it is booting . if you get any further response from the laptop then this is your problem. i have this model and same problem occurred i took the unit apart and placed a rubber wedge ontop of the intel BGA chip. put it back together and with the pressure applied from screwing the case back together hey presto works fine. hope this helps.
by the way please dont attempt to open the laptop unless you are confident you can put it back together :-)
