Dell :: Latitude E6400/E6500 - Display And Color Choices
I'm very close to buying a Latitude E6400 or E6500, but I have a few questions before I pull the trigger. I'm hoping that a few E6400 and E6500 users can help me out...
1- Displays- are they all matte finish or ??? If I go with the E6500, I definitely want the WXGA+ (1440x900) LED-backlit option, but I'm thinking WXGA or WXGA+ (LED-backlit) will do on the smaller E6400.
2- Color choices- I know that Regal Red and Regatta Blue are offered in addition the standard Brushed Metal Black finish. Other than the tiny photos shown on the Product Details page as representations of each color, I can't seem to find any larger photos of the Red or Blue models! Is it a glossy or more of a matte/flat finish.....or should I just stick with the Brushed Metal Black?
3- Which size- 14.1" (E6400) or 15.4" (E6500)? The lighter weight and smaller dimensions of the E6400 are very appealing. I'm just wondering if there are any significant benefits that the E6500 would provide over the E6400 (other than the availability of a WUXGA display)?
4- Thermal Management- The reviews I've seen were models with the P8400 processor and integrated graphics. Heat management was very good on those configurations. Does that hold true for models wity T9400/T9600 processsor and the nVIDIA graphics card? Is fan noise ever a problem?
Acer :: AS6920 Distorted Bass
recently, i was playing a song and suddenly the bass started sounding weirdly/scratchy and loud. if i go to the control panel and lower the volume of internal subwoofer to 0, the sound disappears. try system restore, but it didn't work.
what do you recommend? trying out drivers for example?
fyi, i restored the laptop to factory default settings.

Dell :: 1535 M3450 Streaming Media/display Color Issues
I've got two quick questions. Ones an issue, ones more of a slight curiosity bordering on issue.
A, when watching streaming movies on Hulu in full screen, high quality, the video is jerky. I can watch hidef rips just fine, but streaming high quality is very poor.
And it's not my connection, as both my desktops and my other laptop (an older M2000) handle it just fine.
Dell :: Constant Distorted Image
Dell Inspiron 9400
CPU: Intel Centrino Duo T2400 1.8ghz
Video: geforce go 9700 gs
HD: Seagate 80gb 7200 rpm
Problem: I was using my typing a word document when all of the sudden a pattern of yellow distortion came accross the screen and windows frooze. I tried rebooting windows but even the splash screen that came up right after you turn the computer on is distorted, during startup every image is distorted somehow including the windows splash screen and all shown dos screens(random characters all over the place in dos). It won't boot into windows normally, it gives a blue error screen and then restarts but it will go into safemode (with distortion of course). I tried plugging into two different crt monitors to see if it was a problem with the monitor but they displayed "Signal out of range." I plugged into an LCD monitor and it would display the image but still showed a "Signal out of range." box bouncing around even though it was showing windows in safe mode (still distorted.) I have never seen this problem before. I booted from an xp cd and did a fixboot comand but it still won't boot into windows normal. I uninstalled the video drivers in safemode which would then allow me to boot into windows but I still had the distortion. I reflashed the mobo bios. (nothing changed) Reinstalling the drivers would cause it to crash and then not allow me to boot into anything but safemode unless I uninstalled the drivers. The problem went away completely for about a day and I was able to install the drivers again and everything was working fine but later it happened again. I noticed that while the computer is having the problem hibernation is impossible (doesn't show the option anywhere). I tried replacing the video card (most obvious culprit at this point) and that didn't even work! I'm thinking it needs a new motherboard entirely.
Acer :: Color Profiles For Screens
i just find that at "display properties" there is no color profiles..
Usually when we installs a screen, the icm or icc profiles comes with the driver.
My laptop has an Samsung 15.4 screen ... LTN154X3-L01
Is there any way to get an "color profile" for it?
i will say that "color profile" is useful for 2D graphics,
screens - scanners - digital cameras - software " Photoshop", uses this profiles as an way to preserve and display correctly the color tones on your screen.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 And The AMD RM-70 CPU
I wanted to upgrade my processor on my Aspire 5100 from the so so tl-50 to the RM-70. I am wondering if anyone else has tried this and if so, did you have any problems installing. from what I have researched, AMD is using the same bios for the the Turion processors and the RM-70 seems to be the one that uses the same wattage range, socket and power consumption.
Acer :: Fromatting 5100
I 've been using new acer 5100 laptop for almost 2 monthes.
The laptop was purchased with Windows Vista installed. Im quite unhappy of its performance.
I want to format the lappy and to install XP version.
the problem is that I recieved no Vista installation disc, due it's installed in an hidden partition.
My question is : how to format the hard disk without deleting the hidden partition? so if my new installation will fail (due lack of drivers for example), I could return to the VIsta again.
Dell :: Laptop Screen Not Plugged In Properlyred Lines / Screen Distorted
when i first got this laptop i noticed that the screen was distorted and there was red lines everywhere and the screen was shaking abit. so i contacted dell and they sent me a repair guy to fix it. he fixed it in about 15min by pulling apart the laptop and replugging in the screen. but now its happening again. so i think the thing that plugs in is loose or somethin. so what do u think i should do out of the following options.
1. open it myself and replug it (im a noob and will try remember best what he did)
2. get techinician to come in again (bothersome as i have school)
3. ask dell for a replacement laptop.
im using m1530
Acer :: Aspire 5100 CPU Spikes
I have an Acer Aspire 5100 AMD 62x dualcore tk-53 i think its at like 1.7ghz, it came with Vista, I put XP back on it, came with 1gb of ram I upgraded to 4gb hoping it would run fine. To get to the point. When I first got the computer it ran great, however now sometime with it has brought it to this annoying spike in my CPU. I've tried everything I could to keep it down, but it spikes over 100% randomly and at the worst times. I've ran Process Explorer and watched when it spiked, nothing unusual. I've watched my task manager, nothing unusual. I've defraged, ran virus scans, disabled my virus protection, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, reformated, restarted, any and everything I could. I bought a stand for the laptop and a fan so it doesnt overheat. I've check my power settings, my page file remains the same around 555 on average even during the spikes.
Acer :: 5100 (xp) Windows Won't Boot
Acer 5100 (xp) stopped working a few months back! It says windows could not start because the following file is missing
Telephoned acer for recovery disks! Problems is a bought laptop through a friend of a friend. As I didn't register laptop and can't provide password, they won't sell me disks.
Tried alt f10 but nothing happens. Enabled d2d and recovery in boot up screen. Still no joy.
I have managed to download recovery dvd's (x2) from bit torrent (Acer Aspire 5100 Restore DVD's) . I then set the boot priority to boot dvd first.
The files are iso. I have burned the image using imgburn on 2 dvd's. The disk starts the loading RAMDISK image. Then as it flicks to the acer recovery it quickly jumps to please wait.....
I am now going to decompress the files using winrar, then burn the files. But not sure this will make any difference.
Acer :: 5100 Touchpad Dead
I have an Acer 5100 and the touch pad has died ( including all the buttons ). Was perfect one day , turned it on the next day and it was dead. I'm surviving on an old IBM mouse plugged into USB port at present.
Have checked the mouse properties and it says it is working properly ( which it obviously isn't ) . Have uninstalled and re-installed including checking for latest driver on line . The mouse properties still tell me everything is working properly .
Acer :: 5100- Dvd Rom Stopped Working
Firstly the dvd rom stopped working about 6 months ago.Can live without it but now after getting a blue screen it wont boot or the screen is black.Connected it to a monitor and when it does choose to boot there is no display on the laptop screen until the login screen appears.Ran some tests on the HDD drive when its running but comes up ok.Is it likely to be a failing MB or some corruption on my OP system.
Acer :: Is My Motherboard Dead- 5100
it boots to the acer start screen where you can press F2 to get in to bios but nothing happens when I press F2 and it justs goes to this screen:
And this text is on for like 3 secs then goes away then comes back for 3 secs and so on.
If I put in the acer recovery cd it loads the image file, then theres just a green background with a mouse pointer and the mouse is not functional..
Doesent sound good, right?
there is no HDD in it.
Acer :: Lag Trouble With My Aspire 5100
ive been having hard drive trouble where it says hard drive failure iminent. but I don't think that's my problem. My internet lags so bad on my aspire 5100, like when im trying to watch a streaming video it loads 3 seconds then stops, loads 3 seconds then stops. But when I plug my wifes dell laptop or my desktop into the same connection theres no lag at all. Would this have anything to do with my hard drive?
Acer :: Aspire 5100 Won't Boot
The laptop has been working fine until yesterday...the screen froze and wouldn't let me use the mousepad/curser. I turned the machine off and rebooted, it won't reboot, reacts for about 2 seconds, screen stays black and nothing. Do you think my processor is shot or thoughts to possibly fix it?

Anyone know wats wrong with it?? I reformatted it some time now and it worked until like 3 wks later it does it again. I have to push my window button to get to my stuff but i cant see the little icon at the bottom right corner and my wireless. My start menu bar is gone.
Acer :: 5100 Series- Recovery CD
My son has an Acer 5100 series laptop. His friend decided to install Windows XP over Vista because he thought that it would make the laptop run faster. It crashed. Once past the initial Acer screen it just goes to a black screen. I had someone check it out for me and they said that the original recovery system that would have been partitioned on the hard drive has been wiped out. I need a recovery CD for this laptop but the serial number on the sticker on the back is very faded and not legible. The product key for Microsoft is still in tact though.
Acer :: 5100 And The Disappearing DVD Drive
I have an Acer 5100 complete with the godforsaken Matshita UJ-850s DVD recorder drive, and a few months ago, it started not showing up in Windows at random times. It stopped showing up altogether a month or so ago. I've done the registry edit suggested for this drive, as well as opened up the computer to check the connection to the motherboard. The drive light comes on when a disc is inserted or when the eject button is pushed, but nothing registers in Windows. In addition, the drive doesn't show up in BIOS setup.
Acer :: 5100 Restore Failure Oxa0000002
Here is the story: PC started running slow, then started to get system failure BSODs.
Unplug the PC of all external drives and such, let sit for 30 minutes and it would work fine for a few days, then all would repeat.
So, I made a system restore point, and burned a system recovery DVD. I then tried to do a clean install of Vista Home Premium.
Ok, so here's the deal. It was installed onto D drive. Dont know if that was a good thing or a bad thing.
But it went through the entire install just fine, the new desk top came up, everything looked great for about a minute. Then it turned itself off and has yet to run.
I kept getting an error message 'boot failed' and tried to roll back to the restore point [no good, it reset] and the recovery would not load either. Having purchased the notebook from BestBuy I was not given any restore or system discs, so I ordered both a system restore disc and a recovery from Acer, direct. They came in the mail Thursday.
I put the system disc in, and it said it was Loading RAMDISK Image, the progress bar went all the way over and then it asked for the recovery disc.
Inserting the recovery disc, the Restore to Factory Default scrren came up, and it warned that "partitioning C drive would erase all files, etc, and did I want to continue?"
After clicking OK, it proceeded to run down to about 30% completed and then I received the following Failure to Boot, Error Oxa0000002
So then I tried the whole procedure over, and its the same. Again, and again.
So then I called Acer tech, and was told I needed the Acer ISO Image, which I downloaded, unpacked, and burned to CD [using another computer obviously] and it will not even run that CD.
Acer :: Aspire 5100 Overheating Then Shutting Down
I think that it is an overheating problem considering my laptop (ONLY recently) seems to be getting very hot, to the point it needs to shut down. But this is the strange thing:
I had Windows Vista installed on this laptop (Acer Aspire 5100) earlier, and my battery almost never heated up to the point it needed to shut down, or even heat up to an extreme level.... But now that I have downgraded to Windows XP SP2, it seems to shut down MUCH more often. But I did find one thing of concern. Around the same time my laptop started shutting down, I installed an application called 'Game Speed Changer' and that whenever I had used it, it slowed my computer down immensely, and then when I went to close it, the BSOD would appear. Every time.
Acer :: Aspire 5100 Graphics Card RAM
I purchased an Acer Aspire 5100 using it mostly for busines and writing. Now, I'd like to watch some videos, have an webcam, and play games, however, the integrated video card handles none of this well. It's slow and will sputter on something as simple as a short 60 second video clip.
I maxed out the 4GB Ram, thinking that Vista was using too much but it did not help.
Then I discovered this:
For gaming, the graphics speed is enhanced care of the ATI Radeon Xpress 1100graphics card, with 128 MB dedicated memory. The card can tap into an additional 384 MB from shared system memory, for a total of 512 MB.
I did some research and found that I could go into the BIOS and change the memory from 128 to 512. I tried it, found the setting, changed it, and thought I'd find success. However, Vista somehow read these actions as an error and a failure to start, and would not start........................
Acer :: Installing XP On A Vista Laptop ( 5100)
My acer 5100 came with vista and I'm trying to do a fresh install of XP SP2 on it.
After I get past the partitioning part in the install process, it goes on to the "installing windows" stage and shuts off midway. This has been happening a few times and after some googling, reckoned it has to do with the SATA hard drive.
I tried to get on Bios and change the SATA to IDE but I didnt find any modifiable property for the hard drive on BIOS
I'm wondering some of you folks who installed XP on a vista laptop got it done.
Acer :: Where Or What, Is The Motherboard Manufacturer And Model 5100
I have had a breakthrough in my laptop experience. I actually opened it up.
I followed the manual and no problems as of yet.
My question is the point in me opening up my laptop was to find the motherboard make and model and revision version number. I was checking to see if there was a bios update for this laptop and the advice given was to get the exact motherboard make etc..
and the best advice on how to get an exact match was to open it up. I did and I searched as far as my cheap tools would let me. I was able to remove the cpu fan but when I went to remove the cpu heatsink I could not get the screws to budge. According to the manual the cpu is beneath the cpu heat sink and this is where I thought I needed to go to find the motherboard make and model etc...
Acer :: ERecovery On Aspire 5100 Laptop
Im trying to do a factory restore using the Acer eRecovery on Aspire 5100 laptop, which I set up using their wizard, input the password, ran from Vista, it has rebooted and is showing the Windows XP logo and the moving "progress" bar thing. However, after about 3 mins, the bar stops moving and nothing else happens, its been like that for ages now. Resetting the power starts it up and gets to the same point and stops again. I have used it before without problems, the hidden partition was there before I started (I checked). Now I cant do anything with the laptop at all! Can anyone suggest what I can do now? I didn't ever get round to making DVD backup disks. The machine is also 2 years old, and I dont want to spend a fortune on Acer's 50p per min customer service, considering they should've given me a boot disk with the machine in the first place. I only wanted to restore it as for no apparent reason all my USB devices stopped being recognized by vista.
Acer :: Reducing Heat On ASpire 5100
I have been having some trouble with speed on this computer and I'm quite sure its not a connection problem and its a temperature problem. Lately I have been hearing some strange noises coming out of it and I do feel a lot of heat on it's underside. Unfortunately it only has one vent on the side and the rest are at the bottom. I will admit it is not the the best well kept laptop ever, for once it's never seen a compressed air can seen I took it out it's box. I did find this tutorial online for reducing the heat but I decided to post it here first to see what you guys thought about it boefore I went on with it.
I gotta say I never opened up a laptop before but that doesn't mean I'm computer illiterate or am shy about doing it. I do realize its a tutorial for a fujitsu and not an Acer. Well the bottom line is, what can I do to reduse the temperature? Can I attempt this [url]? and if so, are there any differences I shoould be aware about?
Acer :: C:SWSetup Folder- Not In 5100-5674
I am creating a clean install disc for vista home premium to eventually use in a dual boot with XP 32 or 64,
I am following some guides that were recommended to me by Ops on NBR. (Stallen/Orev) and I am going step by step. I have found that the SWSetup is for HP laptops only.? I have located the DRV file which has all drivers for the Acer 5100-5674 (or most)
Is there a folder similar to SWSetup that has the "crapware" . I would like to make sure I backup everything that I may want now or in the future.
has anyone been successful in clean installing vista home premium on a 5100-5674?

Acer :: Aspire 5100 - Battery/charging
my Aspire 5100 laptop has ben fully-charged but the ePower icon in the system tray says it's as low as 1% charged, and for the past several months has altogether stopped giving me the warning baloon regarding the impending need to charge or else it'll go into hibernation.
i've had this laptop for one year now.
just tonight, though, i've realized something else too-- the orange 'battery' light on the front of the laptop is blinking steadily instead of a solid green (fully charged) or solid orange (charging). then i scrutinize the ePower battery icon in the system tray and it says the laptop has 15 of battery power left, and in paretheses "plugged in, not charging". yet i can be on the laptop for hours upon hours in this state, and it never shuts down.
