Acer :: 1410 VGA-Out And HDMI

Feb 24, 2010

My 1410 has a problem with the display out function. It works fine with both the HDMI and VGA output when the lid is open. However, when I close the lid, the display is okay for a couple of seconds then it flashes on and off intermittently on the display that I hooked it up to. It happens with both the VGA and HDMI output signal. It only happens when the lid is closed, even though I set the computer the do nothing when the lid is closed. I thought it might be a software/driver issue, but I installed the most recent chipset and VGA drivers from the acer website with no change. This is an important feature for me to have because I use the computer with an external display the majority of the time. I am running windows 7 home premium 64bit. Their tech support has told me that Acer computers are set to not work with an external display when the lid is closed.

Acer :: 1410 Vs. 751

Nov 14, 2009

In August I purchased an Acer 751h, 2GB RAM and 250GB HD. It came with Vista, which was pretty awful, but since I installed Win7 on it, I don't want to put it down because it performs so well. It's BLAZING fast, a great little machine and I absolutely love it.

My mother needs a new computer and she really likes mine. I'm considering giving it to her and getting myself the new 1410 - what do you think? Does the new processor in the 1410 make that big a performance difference?

In the benchmarks I've read, even the single core version (apparently there is also a dual-core 1410) is twice to three times as fast as the Atom in my 751 - that's pretty impressive.

I can only imagine that the 1410 with a clean install of Win7 would absolutely FLY. It would also be nice to have the different touchpad buttons and wireless N.

What do you guys think of the 1410?

Also, is it worth it to get the dual core model over the single core?

Also to confirm, the 1410 has VGA-out AND HDMI? This would save me from buying an adapter for when I need to give presentations, as most projectors are VGA-only.

Acer :: My 1410 HDD Just Died

Dec 1, 2009

I just had a blue screen of death (dump screen) for the third time in 2 months and after reboot, i get this screen:

What can i do now? I would like to recover the files i have in the HDD, as i know if i send this to Acer, they'll wipe out everything or replace a new HDD. Can i open the laptop and try to plug the HDD to some enclosure to get the files out?
Will that void the warranty?

In the BIOS, i see:
HDD Model Name: None
HDD Serial Number:
ATAPI Model Name: None

Acer :: Anyone Have 1410 With Hibernation

Sep 23, 2009

I have a Gateway EC1803h which as far as I can tell is identical to the Acer 1410 except for the design of the case, so I'd like to ask this to the Acer users since there are many more with the 1410 than the Gateway.

I'm running Windows Vista. I've disabled the ACPI Lid driver by changing the driver to "Volume Manager" as suggested by various internet sources for fixing the problem where closing the lid, even with the close lid action set to "do nothing" can cause the lcd to not turn on again when opening the lid.

So the problem is with hibernation. If I hibernate the machine, then resume again within let's say a minute or so, it comes back up fine. If I hibernate, then wait a longer amount of time, say 10 minutes, I can see the BIOS boot, the "Resuming Windows" splash screen, but then when I'd expect to see the login screen, instead the laptop screen turns off, and I see nothing. Oddly enough, at this point, if I plug in an external monitor, I can see the login screen there, so the OS is running properly. I can even log in. But at this point, I cannot Fn+F5 to enable the laptop screen. It's like the laptop screen has been disconnected/disabled/removed, whatever you want to call it.

Another weird symptom is that at this point, I can usually see a "System" process that ends up taking up 100% of the CPU processing, all of the time (not just spikes), so the task manager basically stays at 100%.

This feels like a software/driver issue to me, but I've been unable to find any other Acer 1410 or Gateway EC1803h users who've experienced this. I've tried the video drivers on the Gateway site, Acer site, as well as drivers from the Intel site. Same behaviour. I'm contemplating exchanging it for another unit, but only if there's a chance this is indeed a hardware malfunction.

Acer :: Should I Get A 1410 Or A 3810TZ

Aug 18, 2009

Looking to pick up a laptop/netbook very soon and I am pretty much sold on going with the 3810TZ but now I am seeing a lot of talk about the 1410, which unless I am mistaken, is lighter than the 3810TZ, smaller, faster (not by much but has a 3500 cpu vs the 2700) and cheaper (450, vs best deal I can find on 3810 which is 550). Same features/memory/etc?

Any actual knowledge of when the 1410 will be released? I need it very soon (for a trip in a few weeks) and i cant tell from reading these forums if it will be out then or not until october.....

Acer :: Can't Get 5.1 Dts Sound Out Of My 1410

Jan 21, 2010

I Cant get 5.1 DTS spdif audio on my Windows 7 64 bit 1410 Acer laptop using ac3 with toslink into receiver. I'm hoping my laptop supports surround sound output but I fear it may not. I downloaded the full AC3 version since I'm using 64 bit OS. Under config speakers with windows media center I setup 5.1 speakers and clicked test and I did get a specific sound to all my speakers through my receiver. Also when I click speaker icon on bottom right of screen to get realtek digital output properties/ supported formats - I click test sound for DTS and I also get a separate ping to my 5 speakers. Under realtek advanced tab however I notice default format is limited to two channel.

Under ac3 filter config main tab I set speakers to 5.1 and checked use spdif. Under spdif tab I checked use spdif output format to 5.1. spdif passthrough I checked DTS and AC3. Under spdif/DTS mode I tried all 3 settings- auto/padded/wrapped. I'm only getting 2 channel digital audio. I think AC3 is not working right because while playing a DTS movie I don't see a AC3 icon on system tray and when I turn on ac3 config while still watching movie, SPDIF status says No data and I don't see any green spike bars for audio levals. Do I need to force AC3 to work somehow? Do I need a different mediaplayer to use as a front end? Or do I need additional software/ codecs like hailsplitter or something?

My AC3 must be working a little bit because before I downloaded AC3 mkv's would refuse to play at all. I have divx 7 by the way for video support of mkv's. I noticed even after I downloaded divx 7 for mkv support mkv's still wouldn't play without AC3. I'm using windows media player and windows media center for movies.

Acer :: Aspire 1410- RAM

Nov 21, 2009

I have an old Sony Vaio VGN-FS742/W and just got an Acer Aspire 1410. The 1410 has a 2GB PC2-5300 (333 MHz) stick of RAM. The Vaio has a 1GB stick of PC2-4300 (266MHz) RAM.

I've read that running two RAM sticks of different speeds makes them both run at the speed of the slowest stick. Could any advise whether my 1410's performance would be better by adding the 1GB from the Vaio to have 3GB RAM running at 266MHz, or just keep the 2GB already in the Acer running at the quicker 333MHz?

Acer :: 1410 Warranty Policy

Nov 16, 2009

I just bought an AS1410 SOLO last month and yesterday it would not boot up at all. Called Acer tech support and they said send in for the warranty work on the notebook.

The thing is I have to pay for the shipping and to send in their defective product. Is it Acer policy? If it is then it sucks. I have a ThinkPad T43p and when I needed to send it in for warranty work, Lenovo sent me a prepaid box and all I have to do is drop the box off at any UPS store. I forgot to mention that the tech support personnel, their attitude are like I don't give a damn about your problem, you're already bought our product and you need our support now. So give it another thought before you buy any Acer product.

Acer :: Can't Load Windows 7 X64 On 1410

Oct 23, 2009

I have been trying to load a retail version of Windows 7 HP x64 using USB on my Windows Vista HP x86 Acer 1410. I am able to boot from USB and the Windows 7 install program starts. I select Custom Install to do a new installation (not an upgrade). After I select the partition to install to, I get an error message like "can't find a system drive to install to..." I have tried this on two different 1410's with the same results.

It was the particular USB SD Card Reader I was using. I don't have a 4GB USB drive so I was using a USB SD Card reader and an 8GB SD card. I switch to a different Card Reader (same 8GB SD card) and it worked first time!

Acer :: How To Open The Case Of The 1410

Nov 20, 2009

I decided to give the PLL mod a try so I can overclock to 1.7GHz in my 1410. I got ahold of a soldering iron and an old motherboard that I practiced on, and it doesn't seem too bad once you get the hang of it.

Now that I've decided to go ahead, I try to take the case of my Aspire 1410 apart, and with all the screws removed, hard drive, memory, wireless card, I can pry the front of the case open ok, but as I get near the back (fan exhaust one side and lock/ethernet other) It seems locked in place somehow and don't want to break anything.

Is there a guide or service manual or something?

Acer :: Aspire 1410 Thoughts

Mar 8, 2010

I purchased the Acer Aspire 1410-2920 less than two weeks ago, and I seem to be having some issues with mine. I'd love to know if anyone here has experienced these issues as well. I've been using it and have been enjoying it, but now I'm having second thoughts with it and am considering exchanging it for something else. I'd rather not go the exchanging route, but it's something I'm seriously thinking about.

-- ISSUE #1 / LOOSE HINGES --
As posted in another thread created by me about weak hinges on my1410, I'm currently on my second one since the first one had loose hinges. The hinges on my newer one are better but definitely not as firm/strong as I'd like them. Is this normal? Is there any way I can try tightening them myself?

-- ISSUE #2 / HEAT ISSUES --
It gets freakin' hot after only using it for 20-30 minutes. Is that normal? I have the 1810tray application installed, and even if I have the fan set on the highest setting it gets to about 55-57 degrees Celsius. Why does it get so damn hot? All I have running at most times is Firefox and possibly iTunes, but usually not more than two applications. I do notice, though, that it gets incredibly warm when I'm watching video podcasts or movies (MP4s). Anyone else experiencing heat issues on theirs? I've never used a laptop in my life (which I've been using for 15+ years) that gets as warm/hot as this 1410. Is there something I can do to turn down the heat?

-- ISSUE #3 / DOESN'T SIT FLAT --
When it's sitting on a flat surface, all four rubber points on the bottom don't sit flush. The front fright rubber foot doesn't touch the surface, so when you're typing on it there's a very slight rocking motion. When I type it makes the screen rock/wiggle. It's hard to describe it, but it's quite bothersome. Does this happen with anyone else? I can provide a video clip of it if needed, just have to take video of it.

Acer :: 1410 Resume On Lid Opening

just got my 1410 SU2300 machine. I did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro x64 and installed the updated Intel drivers for video and chipset from the Timeline Tweaks thread (all the others were from Windows Update). With the Win7 Home Premium that came with the unit, I was able to come out of suspend automatically when opening the lid.

Now, I have to press the power button to get the machine out of suspend. Could it be one of the power management drivers causing this problem? Is there a solution to it, or am I stuck like this?

Acer :: Aspire 1410 CPU Upgrade

Dec 1, 2009

So, my question is, can I upgrade the CPU? If so, what CPUs can I use and has anyone taken an 1410/1810 apart and posted pics or a guide?

Acer :: 1810TZ Battery In 1410

Oct 18, 2009

I'm interested in picking up an Acer 1410, but I've been looking at the specs for the new US version of the 1810TZ dual-core version. The spec sheet says that it comes with a 6-cell 5600 mAh battery, and the 1410 comes with a 6-cell 4200 mAh battery. I figure, since the bodies are the same, do you think that the larger battery from the 1810TZ will fit into the 1410? That would be an excellent upgrade to the already good battery life of the 1410.

Acer :: Aspire 1410 Owners

May 2, 2010

I recently purchased an Acer 1410 and have a few questions to other owners
1. The machine comes with 2GB. To those who upgraded to 4GB with Windows 7 and the Celeron 743 processor, did you notice
any performance improvements?
2. If I were to upgrade the RAM, I'm still not sure the specs of the modules I need. The 1GB modules in my machine are from Elpida with numerical writing
1rx8 pc2 6400s 666. If anyone knows the pin-out and other specs of these modules, please share them. Even better if you can recommend specific
modules for upgrading to 4GB.
3. I wiped my machine clean and installed a licensed copy of Windows 7 Professional. Since doing so, Windows doesn't automatically resume when
I open the lid. I have to press the power button. I can't seem to find any setting in Windows-7 to correct this.
4. There are 4 led lights on the edge of the laptop that shine directly into my face. Some of them blink from time to time and get annoying.
Any way of turning off these status lights without hacking the motherboard?
5. One of the applications on the Acer site under Support is called Acer Launch Manager. I installed this along with the drivers Acer provides on their
support page. What the heck is Launch Manager. The window that pops up when clicking on the program
says if press the P key, it will launch different multimedia applications.

Acer :: 1410 Shutting Off When Back Is Hit

Mar 29, 2010

problem with my Aspire 1410 (SU4100).

For the last few days I've realized that if I accidentally hit the back of the notebook (at the edge of the screen near the battery) while its open, it completely shuts off. The only way to bring it back to life is by taking out the battery and putting it back in. It definitely wasn't happening before. I recently got it for Christmas so its pretty much brand new.

Ive never seen something like it before. As you can imagine, it can be annoying when typing notes in class and I lightly tap the back with my knee to adjust it and it turns off. Ive never dropped it and have taken extreme care of it.

Also I'm from Canada and have the french-canadian keyboard version (not that would make a difference) and bought it from Costco, which supposedly extends the manufacturer's warranty to 2 years.

Acer :: 1410 Screen After Hibernation

Mar 15, 2010

I just bought a brand new Acer Aspire 1410 11.6" laptop equipped with the SU3500 processor and GMA4500MHD GPU, 250GB HDD and 3GB memory.

I'm very pleased with my new notebook and have installed Windows 7 free upgrade (it came with Vista installed, which I didn't even bother to test). Now, I'm having some troubles when I'm opening my laptop when it's on hibernation (no problem on boot).

The problem only happens one time out of four (approximatively). When I open the screen, there are vertical lines in the screen (around a hundred) on the whole surface of the screen. I need to reboot to get my screen back to his normal state. The lines are moving when I'm moving my mouse but there is no way to remove it (even if I go again into hibernation and then open it again). Reboot.

It doesn't happen often but it's a little bit annoying, I don't want to reboot my computer half the time after hibernation (obviously).

Is this a hardware problem? As the bug only occurs less than half the time and the lines are moving with the mouse, I thought it was a software problem. But there is no threads on any forum about this issue, and I've already reinstalled the Intel GS45 chipset/VGA drivers.

Acer :: 1410 SU2300 Benchmarks With RAM & HDD Upgrades

Feb 23, 2010

After getting my new 1410, I was interested in finding out just how much a hard drive and RAM upgrade would help. I have a 1410 SU2300 which came with 2 1GB DDR2 Dual Channel 667 Mhz 5-5-5-15 RAM modules and a 160GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue. I made a list of fairly well known benchmarks, and ran them with various configurations using upgraded RAM (2 2GB DDR2 Dual Channel 800 Mhz 6-6-6-18 Corsair) and HDD (320GB Seagate Momentus 7200.4).

For testing, I wiped the drive, installed Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, and applied all the tweaks in the 1410 thread, including installing BatteryBar, RMClock, and a few programs of my own like Office 2007 and Dropbox along with the latest drivers for every component and all of the latest MS updates. Then, I installed the following programs for benchmarking:

PCMark Vantage x64 Professional - Overall performance indicator, provides scores for various areas of computer usage. Instead of running synthetic benchmarks, it runs scripts using standard Windows programs like Media Player and Internet explorer. Accurate and popular with repeatable results; probably my favorite benchmark.
PCMark Vantage x86 Professional - Same as x64 version, shown for 32 bit comparison – can only address 3.5gb of the 4.0 installed
Passmark Performance Test 7 – Synthetic overall benchmark, could not be completely run due to directX issues. Not very repeatable or accurate, I personally dislike it.
IOMeter – Hard drive benchmark, sends repeated IO requests and measures operations completed per second in various configurations. Reasonably repeatable, very accurate, much better at providing an overall performance indicator then synthetic sequential readwrite HDD benchmarks.
Everest Ultimate – Memory, CPU, and HDD benchmarking options. Not very repeatable or reliable.

Geekbench x86 – Memory & CPU benchmark. Somewhat repeatable, fairly inaccurate.

Geekbench x64 - Same as x86 version, allows for comparison between x86x64.

Crystal Disk Mark – HDD benchmarking program using various file sizes. Results given in MBs. Very accurate and repeatable, my favorite sequential readwrite testing program. Used 9 pass 1GB file settings.

3dMark 06 (3dMark Vantage couldn’t run) – 3d graphicsCPU benchmarking program. Repeatable, reliable, accepted standard.

HD Tune Pro – HDD benchmark, requires a non-window partition for write tests. Fairly repeatable and reliable, another ‘staple’ benchmark......................
