since receiving my new Acer 7720-6604 (Cdn) a week ago, I am a firm believer. I cant believe it, the new Acer with 3G's of DDR2 RAM is even slower than my 5 year old Toshiba Satellite 2.8Gz Celery with 768MB of memory. It opens sites faster. It boots faster!
The only changes I have made to the new Acer so far was to uninstall the demo Nortons and have installed AVG free and SpywareBlaster. Also, I have disable Aero
I thought it might be AVG and SpywareBlaster slowing it down so tried it with both uninstalled and no change. Re-installed them
I ran across a MS suggestion using "Ready Boost" in which you utilize a 1G or larger thumbdrive to use as a cache. Possibly a very slight increase, so small I really cant say.
As the new Acer has a Geforce 8600M GT GPU and a T8100 Core 2 Duo processor, it cant be the hardware. The two drives are both WD 5400rpm so its really not them as I dont believe that 7200s would make that big a diff.
I am sorely tempted to utilize the second HDD for an XP install (just that it will be another $100 or so layout) Hoping that the SP1 will sort this garbage out.
It runs like XP with 256MB of memory and this system has 3GB's. The HDD's on this are large WD 160's at 5400rpm, so it cant be them.
I have disable Aero and gotten rid of (uninstalled) the 90day trial Norton.
I am running AVG Free for an AV. Ultimate is a 64bit system
Just opening a new site in IE takes on the average of 15secs or so and initial start up, seems to take forever.
I have went into power management and amended the screen to never turn off and also the HDD's to never turn off.
Before I did this, it went into some sort of sleep/hibernation mode and couldnt figure out how to wake it. I tried using the "sleep mode" at Start>Sleep and it went into sleep fine but when pushing the Power button to re-awaken, I waited about 5 mins and it still didnt awake.
I have an Acer Ferrari 1000 with Vista Ultimate. 160GB Hard Disk 2GB RAM
This notebook are not CDs of recovery, but a partition PQSERVICE hidden partition. The structure of this is: One Hard Disk of 160GB with the following: C: NTFS Type 06 Label: ACER 70GB D: NTFS Type 07 Label: DATA 70GB E: CD-ROM DVD-RAM DRIVE AND Hidden Partition NTFS Type 12 Label: PQSERVICE 9GB
I don't have access to boot with Windows Vista, is broken...
I need to recover all my system to factory default, but the option ALT+F10 not work: Is enable in the BIOS the D2D Recovery, but i think that there's is some problem with the MBR.
The file acer oolsmbrwrdos.exe NOT EXIST in C: and the hidden partition neither, there is something like that but for windows only... MBRWRWIN.EXE and RTMBR.BIN ....
How can i fix the MBR for the ALT+F10 Works? and restore my system to factory default?
I have an Acer Aspire 7720G which has a Nvidia GeForce 9300M G 256MB graphics card.
Other specs - Core 2 Duo T5750 (2.0 Ghz), 3Gb Ram 667MHz
I've installed a clean version of Vista Ultimate but it doesn't recognise that there's a graphics card present. I've tried to instal the drivers from the Nvidia website but it aborts because it can't find the hardware.
I've also tried installing Vista SP1 but still no avail.
Just got my 3810 and want to do a clean install. Unfortunately Acer doesn't supply the WIN 7 OS. Which I new that but now I want to clean it up and do a fresh install. Can someone expalin how to do this? I have a memory stick. I don't feel I should pony up $20 for a disk from Acer.
I just got vista ultimate fro my xps m1730 specs intel core 2 extreme processor 4GB RAM nvidia gforce 8800 gtx SLI I need to know what special drivers do i need.. I have fps drops going from 70 to 30 every 2 min. Would greatly be appriciated if you guys give me a link for the little lcd monitor i cant find the driver. I'm such a nub.
since the 3810 is really noisy with AC plugged in, I decided to buy another battery to only run it on batteries.
But I found several different models running with the 3810 so I am confused and wonder if anyone has made experiences with original/3rt party batteries and would recommend a particular one. What I found so far are
I uninstalled all the extra software that this laptop came with. One problem i am having is every SECOND start up, the computers loads very slow. The next time i turn on the laptop it will load really fast and all the icons and stuff will pop up right away. Then the next time it will be slow again, windows load then only the wallpaper visible, the icons on desktop and the start bar is not there for about 2 mins.
I tried to restart and i noticed it is always on the second start up.
Also i tried to format my laptop with XP on a usb stick. When i get to the set up, it can not detected the harddrive but only the usb stick.
My 1730 is "In Production" (whatever that means) and I specifically got one with Vista Ultimate so I could use downgrade rights to run XP for a while longer.
Anyone know how I go about exercising these downgrade rights?
I will need a CD Key to install XP Pro, how do I go about obtaining one? Is this a call to Microsoft? Dell? I don't need any media; I have several Microsoft XP OEM CD's from various systems I have built over the years and I have already downloaded all the XP drivers for the 1730 from Dell's site.
First things first is if you have a 3810 you might want to check when it was manufactured as some have overheating microphone lead issues:
Click here to see if yours is affected: [url] Now that the bad bits out of the way lets move on shall we....
Link to the different configs you can get:
Personally for the price I would go for the LX.PE602.045 version. Its about £480 and for the price it a steal. Performance wise it will cope with day to day tasks and even more resource hogging programs like Photoshop [url], yes I know its not an ACER 3810 but it uses the same Intel SU4100 CPU. As you can see its competant enough).
And the 8 hours battery life!! You can get a USB GPS receiver and use it as a Sat Nav system, with 8 hours battery life you'll be fine
It starts to happen and the laptop has been running for several hours. It goes away after a reboot. Its mega annoying when watching a you tube video and it keeps freezing, just for a couple seconds then it goes again. Keeps doing it throughout the video. Also when opening web pages etc. Its aggrivating as heck. Anyone else had this problem. Its not the fans or anything becasue as soon as you reboot its fine again for several hours to even days.
I have a Dell d820, docking station, and monitor stand. I am running Vista ultimate.
My problems are two-fold:Hot docking does not work. If I take my laptop out while it's running and open the screen, it is blank, and it never comes back. Pulling it out while asleep results in similar issues. The only reliable way to dock and undock is to shut down completely
