    While this has somewhat changed recently, Acer laptops have been historically known for their affordable price tags and overall solid value for the money, albeit with a few cut corners here and there, perfectly normal for budget devices.

    This article is about one such device, the Aspire 5 A515-51 series that Acer released around mid-2017 and from what I can tell, is an update of their popular Aspire E15-575 series.

    For more than a year, Acer's Aspire E 15 was my go-to pick for anyone who just needed a quick, reliable laptop for general use around the home. Sadly, that model is getting harder to find, but the Aspire 5 is an excellent alternative that's thinner, lighter and still an impossibly good deal.

    Requesting assistance:

    Having a major problem on this laptop. Actually have been having this issue for years, but it went from occasionally random to almost every boot session. Still have never figured out the cause of this issue, but I have narrowed it down all the way to the sound driver. Reinstalling the driver, updates, etc., never fixed the problem. Reinstalling driver offset the issue for maybe a week or two before it came back again.

    The problem that occurs is that the entire system will totally hang and slow to a drastic crawl. Certain functions such as right clicking something and for some navigation through explorer will not be affected, but opening ANY new task including task manager, file properties, or changes to settings such as turning on/off internet connection, to even initiating a shutdown/restart will be delayed by up to ten minutes. I could be waiting 10+ minutes just to close a program or disconnect from internet or restart and the issue does not go away until a shutdown or in often times a forced shutdown. The problem happened randomly in the past and was hard to tie to any event. Recently however, this occurs now every 2-3 boots and requires a forced shut down to reopen everything normally. Running Windows 10.

    After weeks of poking around the event viewer, I noticed a weak but certain pattern. Just seconds before this issue does occur, the RAVBg64.exe or its related services crash or stop responding, according to the event viewer logs. Rarely does the RAVBg64.exe leave any crash log or dump file, but today it did leave a 2 MB dump file which I have saved for later. I do not have any program that will let me open or analyze any dump files and cannot find any online that "work" so to say. For this reason I am convinced that the sound driver is to blame for the entire system hanging. Reinstalling this driver or updating it to the newest version (which I have only and always ever done from the Acer website) does not solve the problem. The sound itself doesn't appear to malfunction, even during this system hang (although the sound response itself is also delayed for 10+ minutes when it does happen). From time to time, I will boot to see an "x" on my volume to find that the windows audio service failed to start or isn't working, though restarting the sound service fixes this and during this issue the system hanging may or may not occur. I do not know if that detail is relevant. This is my first time posting in these forums, I do have a dump file I could upload, just don't know where to upload it to. If anyone can help me with this problem to finally have it solved, that would be great. Otherwise, I don't see myself buying another faulty laptop from Acer in the future when it is finally time to get another computer.

    Acer's Aspire 5 A515-56 has decent battery life and performance, as well as quality speakers and camera. Its internal hardware can be upgraded, and there are many ports for connecting accessories. However, most people should avoid the laptop because of the poor display. Crediblebh

    Hello, I have a n17c4 acer laptop. And it simply was not responding and would take 10-30 mins to start up. Delay with everything responding. Thinking I had virus or some malware infestation. I decided to wipe everything. Shut down did the whole hold alt f8. Proceeded to wipe everything and do complete reinstall. Hours later my laptop is stuck at “resetting this pc 1%”  I can’t get past this point. Any ideas? New hard drive time? Could there be other hardware that’s is faulty?
