Acer :: Aspire 4937G Mp3 Lag When Surfing Net

Jun 15, 2009

jus brought this for 2 weeks. clean install wit Win XP Pro SP3. but than wat makes me frustrated is tat when i use windows media player 11 to play mp3, as well as surfing net. somehow the song jus lag, but did not pause.

at first i thought is windows media player issue, so reinstall it, but stil the same. i than reinstall sound driver(Realtek), but doesnt help too. so went on to try other player, like winamp, media player classic. but didnt help too.

went on to power options to adjust to "Always On" which the speed n voltage wil be fix at max. it improve a bit only. however this only works on my previous laptop(Aspire 5584), but did not works on 4937G, when i observe it wit CPU-Z, Everest. the multiplier stil adjust either 6x or 10x. voltage also too..

i also did all the windows update, tweaks as well.

btw the processor n chipset using is T9550(2.66GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 6MB L2 Cache), Intel Cantiga PM45 Express chipset.

Acer :: Copper Mod On Aspire 4937G (NVIDIA G105M)

May 7, 2010

i believe many of u experience gpu reaching near 100 degrees when gaming, causing laptop to jus turn off by itself.

a gd news here..copper shim solve the problem, which means it lower down temp to prevent tat from happening.

received copper shim in my mailbox yesterday.

thickness is 0.044", 1.11mm, 0.1cm

size is 0.75", 19.05mm, 1.9cm (kind of too big for gpu, becos the seller hav tat size for tat thickness, but nvm, look below)

wat i do next is to use a sand paper(fine one, not rough one), i use 1000cw since i had tat at home. lazy to go out to get more fine one.

do it on a flat surface, sand until like mirror effect.

now proceed to dismantle the whole laptop.

it seems tat the heatsink is too small for tat copper shim, but no need to worry, the surrounding alum is a little lower than tat copper.

using Arctic Cooling MX-2. apply on both cpu, gpu, n on copper shim after placing over gpu.

Stress test results

*Ambient Temperature: 32 degrees

Before copper mod, wit default thermal pad. i immediately stop the test b4 it blackout.

After thermal pad was replaced by Copper Shim.
temperature was still steady at 88 degrees after 11mins!

Acer :: Ferrari 3200 Locked In Bios

Aug 29, 2007

My old Acer Ferrari was protected with a bios password that i personally used. However I was giving away my old laptop and tried to clear out my bios password for its new user.

What happened was i simply put nothing when it asks to enter the new password in the bios..i just hit enter. Now the system keeps asking for a password when i have none to give. Even the old password doesn't work, as does just hitting enter. I don't know if anyone still knows tricks of the trade for this old system but anything could be helpful.

I've been trying to find a backdoor password but I can't find any that works and Acer won't help me cause I don't have warranty anymore since the laptop is old.

Acer :: Proc Locked At 800mhz AOD150 Netbook

Jul 12, 2009

i bought my wife a netbook, as she specifically requested, thing is, on 3cell 3hrs are great, but it has begun to "tear" a lot in WINXP.....

background services...etc have been seen to

so i check out CPUID and lavalys.....both showing Proc working along at 800mhz....i have tried to change power profile in XP ..... and tried making a new one, but there is no way to reduce that tearing effect...... it feels a bit sluggish to me, i am going to add a 2G module (accepts Elipda 2G module from my HP DV5T) so some RAM along those lines is wha i am aiming for......

how to stop/ allow the laptop to clock on OS load....cuz the 800mhz on the netbook is unacceptable.

Acer Aspire One D257 - 13473 :: Accessing Locked F2 Setup On Computer

Nov 13, 2014

I Recently purchased an Acer Aspire One D257 - 13473 with mfg. date 2011/07/04 pre-owned at a garage sale. it had a dead hard drive when i purchased it, which was not a huge issue, and i replaced it.
then i was severely disappointed. 
I went to try and configure this computer for my own use, but turns out there's (what im assuming to be a BIOS password, since the HDD has been replaced) a password to access the F2 SETUP Menu on this machine. i was really hoping that since I've already upgraded the RAM and replaced the hard drive that i could get this machine actually functionable again.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X100e Wireless Connection Drops From Time To Time

Jul 27, 2010

I just got my new x100e laptop today, and i really like it. But, it has a problem. 
I am connected to my wireless network at home, and it works properly on my other computers at house. But on the x100e, the connection drops from time to time. Suddenly, the internet is gone, but ten seconds later, the network is back up again. 

It's not that big a problem, but it is frustrating to lose the internet from time to time. It happens from every 5 minutes to once 30 minutes.

HP 14-d004tx OS/Software :: Takes A Long Time To Start Every Time Turned It On

Jul 17, 2014

It really annoys me that my new laptop, (Just a week old) when turned on takes a very long time before it starts. After the HP logo, it will show a blank page where my cursor can be moved, then it will stay a very a long time so I end up shutting it down then turning on again and again until it finally starts up.  This really takes a lot of my time specially I use my laptop for work.

Dell :: Hard Drive Clicks From Time To Time

Jan 22, 2009

My laptop is an inspiron 1520, about a year old now. Ever since I've had it, the hard disk drive has been making a loud, random click from time to time. Sometimes, it will click twice in the space of two minutes, sometimes it will click only once in two or three days.

Typically it's simply a loud snapping sound, like if you get a pencil and snap it against a wooden desk. It doesn't make any other sounds besides the usual hard drive sounds.

For about a quarter of a second, the system pauses. I think it's related to heat, as it happens most often while playing a graphic-intensive game.

Acer :: 5920G Is Not Keeping Time

Feb 5, 2009

Ive got a tad problem with my acer 5920 , just bought it. Love it but only 1 thing is bugging me. I normally dont keep the battery in as i just move it around in my room . However if i turn off my laptop and turn the mains off and then turn the mains on and the computer on again, The time will reset to the default 2007 time. I thought most laptops have a battery in them to hold time like computers. This does not happen with any of my old laptops, do you guys experience this?

Acer :: 5600 Freeze On Start-up (60% Of The Time)

Aug 28, 2008

my housemate is having problems with his Acer Aspire 5600.

Basically pretty much 2 out of 3 times you turn it on it will load in to windows and then just freeze. No touchpad input, no keyboard input, you cant use the power button either, you have to take the battery out to stop it.

I tried a USB mouse, no input from that either.

I formatted the whole machine and reinstalled everything, incase it was some sort of malware, still no joy.

One solution I read was to make sure all the battery settings were set to Never, as it can sometimes be known to put itself to sleep at stupid times... would make some sense for the symptoms, but I've done that and still no joy.

The machine runs fine EVERY time if you run it in Safe Mode... which doubly confuses me...

Another solution I have read is to switch the unit down to Word Processing Power on the acer control panel.

I havent actually installed the acer control panel, since I dont really like having third party software like that on there... but I should probably give it a go. Still, does it really HAVE to work on Word Processing power? That would be.... lame...

The notebook is running Windows XP Business 32-bit.

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Part Time Brick

Apr 5, 2009

I bought this laptop to ease my sense of dispair when im away from my pc - however it seems to crash about once a month and then stop working for a while... like a week and eventually it just recovers completely for another month? im guessing it has something to do with built up static or something? im not big on laptops.. a lot of the time it seems fine but then when i open up WoW it crashes up again

also if i have it closed while listening to music or something it constantly makes this "dudu" noise as though theres some important notification but nothing on screen and it makes it like every 15 seconds but just randomly...

Acer Aspire E1-521 :: Shut Down Every Time When Select / Sleep Or Hibernate

Jan 14, 2015

Why does my E1-521 laptop shut down every time? Regardless of what I select, sleep, hibernate, close lid, it still shuts down. That is not what power buttons are set up to do, seems to make no difference what those settings do. It may be a coincidence, but I think I started having problems when I turned on "OneDrive".. which I can't seem to turn off! Running Windows 8.1....

Acer TravelMate 2420 :: Can Boot Up And / Or Close Down At Specific Time?

Mar 5, 2015

I have, a.o., a TravelMate2420. Can I let it boot up and/or close down on specific times? It's one of my Acers, the oldest, and I want to use it for monitoring my sunpanels.

That program will start up after boot and close down while closing down the system. The program uses COMports and for datasavings harddiskspace AND a part of the machines memory, so it has to shut down regularly before the machines' memo is full. And then start up clean and so on. Aprox a week of data will do, so a weekly restart of the system would be needed.

If timer doesn't work I can use the local network option. But how?

Dell :: CPU Locked At 800mhz

Feb 21, 2008

I have an XPS Gen 2 Laptop. I know its like ancient now but after 3 years its still running pretty well. The problem is I'm getting severe fps drops in games and I realized something strange happened to my cpu.

The cpu load is going crazy because the cpu clock speed is locked at 800mhz.

I thought it was something wrong with SpeedStep but I turned that off and nothing changed. My cpu will not go past 800mhz.

Why is my cpu downclocked and what can I do to make it normal again. Dell BIOS doesn't really let u manipulate anything.'

CPU-Z shows

Core Speed: 798 MHz
Multiplier: x 6
Bus Speed: 133 Mhz
Rated FSB: 532
