Acer :: 3810T-6775 Only Has 28GB Of Free Space Out Of Box

Aug 14, 2009

When the Timeline series came out, I figured it was the new laptop that I wanted to get and spent the last month or so trying to decide which version to get. When newegg ran the 13" with the SU9400 and the 80GB SSD I figured that was the one for the price. My old laptop had an 80GB HD in it and I only used about 40, so why would I need a 500GB HD? Well I finally bought it and got it yesterday. I've been playing around with it for a day and was deleting some of the garbage installed on it like 20 games! After a while of that I checked to see how much space was on the HD and to my surprise it said 28.0GB Free of 60.5GB!

Acer :: Which SSD In The Timeline 3810T-6775

Sep 4, 2009

Owners of the Acer Timeline 3810T-6775:

What model SSD is in your Acer Timeline 3810T-6775?

Is it the 1st or 2nd generation of the Intel X25-M?

Please note when and where you purchased your Timeline.

reference: [url]

The second-gen X25-M's extensive under-the-hood changes are capped by a new skin. Gone is the black exterior of the old drive; in its place is a bare metal casing that's gone unpainted in an attempt to further reduce costs. A black metal shim has been added to bring the drive up to a standard 9.5-mm thickness, though.

It's a good thing that there's a color contrast between the old and new models, because Intel intends to produce both as its customers make the transition to the new hotness. One may also differentiate between generations based on their model numbers: The old ones end in G1, while the new ones are tagged as G2.

Acer :: Recovery Partition Showing 100% Free Disc Space?

Sep 12, 2009

I have just upgraded from Windows 7 RTC Ultimate to Windows 7 RTM pro.

The weird things is, that there are two hidden partitions:

There are two hidden partitions and they have both 100% free disc space. I know one of them is the recovery from Acer, but it says nothing of the disc space is used !

Luckily, I have a recovery CD.

Another weird thing is in Auslogic Disc Defrag:

There are a removal drive and it's leading to the Windows folder on the C: drive O_O?

Acer Aspire ES1-111M :: Can't Delete Recovery Partition To Free Up Disk Space

Dec 20, 2014

I've created a Factory Default Backup with a USB drive with Acer Recovery Management.  I see this message which tells me I can delete the recovery partion to free up disk space after I've created the backup but it never gives me the option to do so.
 
I DO get the option to remove the Driver Recovery Partition after backing it up to USB but not the 10GB Recovery Partition.  It's a a HUGE deal on a system that only has a 32GB hard drive.

Acer :: Could Timeline AS3810T-6775 Support External Bluray Drive

Aug 3, 2009

I've been looking at the new timeline series notebooks for a while and got really excited when newegg put up this model for $799! Anyways, I plan on getting an external drive and was just wondering if the SU9400 with Intel GMA 4500MHD could support playing a bluray disk on an external drive? From what I'm gathering through the numerous posts about these models, it appears that the SU9400 should playback 1080P off various websites but I couldn't find any info about a bluray player.

If so any suggestions on a compact inexpensive external bluray drive?

Acer :: Timeline 3810T

Nov 15, 2009

I was looking at the Acer Timeline 3810t and I am thinking about purchasing it because the battery life is great and so is the performance. Yet, the one thing I found that may hold me from purchasing is the stiff mousepad buttons brought up in many reviews. I was wondering if anyone who has this laptop has experience with the touchpad buttons. Are the really stiff that it would annoy someone who uses their laptop on the go without an external mouse?

Anyone got a timeline enjoying these games?

Acer :: Just Got My Timeline 3810T-6415

Jun 29, 2009

I've only had it for about an hour and a half so I don't many first thoughts but the keyboard is nice, build quality seems excellent, screen is beautiful, and just an amazing machine. I tried to take some pics but my camera isn't that great and unfortuantely the LCD is broken so I can't see what the picture is going to look like.

If you want me to take a picture of anything I can try or ask anything go ahead I'd be happy to answer. I'm thinking of doing a video in a few days and putting it up on YouTube because there isn't much about this laptop.

Acer :: Timeline 3810T Not Recognizing IPhone

Nov 5, 2009

I've got an odd problem - my iPhone neither charges nor is recognised by USB2 on my 3810T. Tried same lead and phone on desktop and other PCs no problem. I'm running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit on both laptop and main PC.

My normal iPod classic connects and charges fine via the 3810T as do other peripherals like the external DVD-RW and memory sticks. Sony Ericsson mobile phone connects and charges too.

Can anyone explain this or has anyone either had the same problem or have connected successfully with an iPhone?

Acer :: Win 7 Upgrade Timeline 3810T SU3500

Oct 3, 2009

Just got my new notebook and registered successfully for the win 7 upgrade.

I notice that the machine has 4GB RAM so it surely makes more sense to install Win 7 64 bit...? Anyway I have two other copies of the full version of Win 7 on pre-order for our home desktops which come with both 32 and 64 bit versions.

One of our desktops is generally used for office tasks so could I use the Win 7 32 bit upgrade intended for my Acer Timeline for that and do a fresh install of one of my full Win 7 home premiums on my new Acer Timeline?

Basically, is the upgrade locked to the associated Acer laptop?

Acer :: 3810T Strange Windows 7 BSOD

Jul 2, 2009

Having some very strange Win7 RC install problems on my Timeline 3810T.

First - If the SATA was in AHCI mode in the BIOS, I would get a BSOD every time the partitioning was complete and copying files begun. When this was switched to IDE mode, installation went off without a hitch. This is with the machine's stock 320GB hard drive.

Second - I've received a Corsair P256 SSD drive, based on a new "very compatible" Samsung controller. After installing this SSD, the BSOD occurs no matter which mode I'm in (IDE or AHCI). I cannot seem to find a way around this. I've tried loading all different version of AHCI drivers from Intel for the ICH9M-E, but no go.

I'd really like to unleash this SSD

Acer :: 3810T SU3500 + ATI HD 4330 Better Than SU9400?

Sep 8, 2009

1) SU3500 + ATI HD 4330 better than SU9400?

My usage would be web surfing, office apps, music/movie playback, 0 gaming.

I tend to multitask, open many tabs when browsing, plus run several apps at one-go etc.

2) Can I easily replace the HDD with a SSD and will it support the 2.5inch SLC ones?

3) Are there official 9 cell batts for this model out yet?

Acer :: 3810t When On Battery Power, It Seems To Fluctuate In Brightness ..

Sep 9, 2009

I am running Windows 7 RC1 on the 3810t, and have been experiencing some weird issues.

I am hoping that someone in the NotebookReview community has already struggled with these problems and can help me resolve them.

The first issue concerns the laptop screen. When on battery power, it seems to fluctuate in brightness and contrast without my express permission. I have looked around in video card and power settings, as I thought that maybe this was a "feature" to save battery power or something, but have been unable to find anything.

Secondly, the computer sometimes goes to sleep long before the time delay for inactivity has passed. The last straw came yesterday, when I continually struggled with waking my compy up, and then having it go to sleep three or four seconds later, over and over again. I won when i yanked the battery out. Except that I wanted to use the computer, so I guess the computer won...

Anyways, I think that this machine is great. The battery life is amazing, and it runs quickly and smoothly (I have the 3810t-6775 with an SSD --the performance of the SSD is incredible). Hopefully someone can help me with these minor (read: major) issues so that I can transcend into computing bliss.

Acer :: Battery On 3810T No Longer Fully Charges

Mar 3, 2010

After 6 months of moderate use, the battery on my 3810T seems to not want to fully charge. The battery indicator in windows (win 7 home premium 64bit), shows the max charge at 88% and the front led stays yellow for a long time when plugged in (over 12 hrs) before finally just turning off instead of going to blue to indicate a full charge.

Acer :: How To Add Bluetooth To Your Timeline 3810T And Other Interesting Tidbits With The Machine

Jul 16, 2009

Disassembly, Bluetooth Install and other interesting findings:

A view from above find the tabs holding the keyboard in on the top edge above the F keys:

There are 5 of these tabs on the top row of the keyboard. Press in the middle one with a micro flat head, and use another to pry up the back of the keyboard. Press the rest of them in and they will bow the keyboard out. Only pry from the middle, as this will enable the keyboard to slip under the 2 tabs on the sides.

Once the keyboard is popped out, flip up the black tab to release the ribbon cable. Set the keyboard aside.

Remove the screws at the yellow dots, and disconnect the ribbon cables in the red squares. Simply stick your fingernail under the black tab and gently pull up. They are the same style as the keyboard connector.

Flip over the machine, and remove all screws at the yellow dots. The red dots are rubber stoppers that must be pulled out of their holes to expose the screws below. They come out fairly easily using a small micro flat head screwdriver to pry them out. There is double sided tape on the bottom to keep them in place, and it is good for more than one application, so you need not worry about them falling out later.

Take off the hard drive door and the memory cover and set them aside. To remove the hard drive itself, lift up the black plastic tab and gently pull on it. The whole unit will come out.

Remove the battery, and under the battery there are 2 smaller silver screws in plain sight. These must be removed also.

Flip the machine back over, and gently pull the top plastic piece off. This is one of the easiest laptops I've ever disassembled. DO NOT use a screwdriver to pry the pieces apart, you WILL mar the plastic and it will look bad. There is still 1 small pair of wires connecting the top to the motherboard, but there is enough slack to set the top off of the bottom, exposing the motherboard........................

Acer :: 3810t Timeline Battery Charging Orange/blue LED

Is there any way to disable the blue LED that stays on once the battery is finished charging? It only stays on when connect to AC power. The light is very annoying in the dark.

If it makes a difference, I'm running windows 7 64-bit.

Acer :: Timeline 3810T/TG Modified BIOS Fix For Both Graphics Cards Powered On

May 15, 2010

Modded BIOS 1.27 for Aspire TM 3810.

Version with Intel/Ati/Switchable options in Switchable Graphics menu:
ftp://ftp.ad1ced.ru/JM31.127_SLIC.zip

Extended version with additional unlocked options:
ftp://ftp.ad1ced.ru/JM31.127_SLIC_ad1ced.ZIP

Don't forget to change User Access Level to see all options

advan20092 is AWESOME!

Just to explain how awesome this modded BIOS is: It enables a new INTEL-ONLY graphics setting in the BIOS for the TG models. This disables the ATI chip entirely, basically making the Switchable Graphics TG models act like the T models, which "fixes" the bug where both graphics chips are active after a Resume from Standby.

This gives 3810TG owners the promised battery life of 8+ hours. One caveat - it disables the HDMI port. For HDMI you have to use Switchable or ATI-ONLY modes.

Acer :: Free Windows 7 Upgrade

Nov 18, 2009

I just made my weekly call to Mentor Media and this is the first time someone spent enough time to tell me something potentially encouraging about my Windows 7 upgrade. She indicated that this week they finally (her word) have given them some information when things would ship. She said my order would ship within 3-5 business days maybe before and encouraged me to call back Friday for an update. She said that e-mails typically go out 24-48 hours after it has actually shipped, and to not necessarily expect the web site status to change. Somehow I sensed she maybe knew something concrete this time instead of just having to say that they didnt know.

Im cautiously optimistic.

I already bought a new upgrade license for Windows 7 and was about ready to install it on my Acer, but hearing this am going to hold off a bit longer in hopes that I can save it to use on my older Vista desktop. Hope Im not hung out to dry again being suckered into waiting just a bit longer

Has anyone that has received their upgrade kit found that it does a BIOS upgrade? The BIOS on my Acer M1202 is SLIC 2.0 compliant and presumably wont allow any OEM activation key to work on it until its 2.1 compliant. Just curious how they are doing this.

Acer Aspire ES1-512 :: Space Bar Unresponsive

Jan 4, 2015

I have just purchased the Acer Aspire ES1-512 laptop from Tesco, the laptop will be used for college assignments so will involve a lot of typing.  The keys are fine apart from the space bar which is pretty much hit and miss, press the centre of the space bar it works fine, but when pressing the edges or near to the bottom of the space bar and it only works some times and others it doesn't work at all.  This means going back and having to put in the missing spaces on documents which is pretty time consuming.
