Acer :: 5570 RAM Upgrade

Feb 10, 2009

I checked with Acer and Crucial.com to determine that I could upgrade from 1GB to 4 GB , removing the two existing 512 MGs and installing two 2 GBs in their place. When both 2 GBs were installed the computer would not boot. After checking with Crucial tech
I tried with just one of the 2 GBs and then the other. Each worked fine individually.

I then downloaded the Vista Flash BIOS 1.32230 and after some help from the Acer tech people was able to install it. It did not change anything. Finally Installed one of the old 512 MGs with one of the new 2 GBs and that worked. Am now running on 2.5 Gigs which is an incredible improvement especially with the Vista OS. If anyone has been able to update to the full 4 GBs please let me know what I've missed. Incidentently, the 2 GB RAM can be ordered online from crucial.com for about $21 and installation is a snap ( about 5-10 minutes ).

May 8, 2009

I have an Aspire 5570 that is making really really loud noises and slowing the boot up time a lot!

Anyone have this problem? Not 100% sure but I'm pretty certain it is in need of a fan replacement.

Is it hard to DIY a fan replacement? ANyone? I am looking for instructions online.

Acer :: Aspire 5570 Dvd/Cd Combo Ain't Working

Sep 27, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5570z Notebook
with built in, DVD/CD Burner
Optiarc DVD RW AD-7530A ATA Device
Type: DVD/CD ROM Drives

My Cd/Dvd combo was working properly the other day, But now it doesn't read c.d's , only thing works in it now is DVD's.

The last thing i done before it went weird was burn a c.d on NTI Cd/Dvd Maker, and an error came up and said could not complete or something. When i open up my WMP to rip some songs, i notice it wasn't working. Everytime i put a c.d in, it make sounds of it spining, but not reading comes up. it says Please Enter A Disc. I tried almost everything, i cleaned the laser, i tried removing "upper and lower fliters" from the regedit thing, which wasn't there because i removed that once before when i had this problem.

Acer :: Aspire 5570 Laptop Cooling Mod

Feb 17, 2009

I've bought my Acer Aspire 5570 with T2450 Core Duo 2.0 CPU and Intel GMA950 Video 1.5 years ago and back then I wasn't into fiddling around with it, plus I also had warranty on it and didn't feel like voiding that.

But lately it has been pissing me off, because if I actually use it for anything other than browsing text-based web pages it gets hot. And if put under max load after 10minutes you run the risk of burning your hand if you touch the laptop underneath (75C according to RMClock Utility).

But now, since warranty is long over i decided to see what I can do to improve cooling.
After spending a good amount of time looking for service manual I found one on ed2k network and set it download. Eager to get the things rolling I took it apart blindly (wasn't hard at all) and of course, right when I was done with the last screw the service manual finished downloading... *sigh* (To save you from the same fate I've uploaded the service manual at the end of this post.)

I have cleaned the heatsinks (there wasn't much hair, since i used to blow it out with compressed air occasionally), reapplied thermal paste and then I noticed that about 3/4 of air vent on the bottom of the laptop (where air gets sucked in for cooling) was blocked by a piece of removable plastic, whereas the fan was big enough to use the whole vent......................

Acer :: Aspire 5570 Bluetooth Device Missing

Apr 5, 2008

I have upgraded to Windows XP and reinstalled all the drivers I need from the Acer website. Wireless networking is fine.

The problem is, when I slide the Bluetooth switch on the front of my computer while a device (Nintendo Wiimote) is waiting to connect to the computer, "No Device" in green text shows up on the bottom of my screen. I think this shows the driver is somewhat working and the hardware is detected.
The LED indicator beside the switch does not light up.

I go to my control panel and double click the "Bluetooth Configuration" icon, nothing happens for a while, then a single dialog shows up saying "Bluetooth device not found. Please verify that your Bluetooth device is properly connected and turned on." showing only an OK button.

Inside the computer management window, under device manager, a group called "Bluetooth Devices" exists, and inside is something named "Bluetooth Bus Enumerator". I have right clicked on both and tried "Scan for Hardware Changes" and nothing happened. The properties show that "This device is working properly"

Drivers Provider is Broadcom
1/11/2006
Version 5.0.1.1500

Yes I have restarted my computer several times.
All of the above actions were performed four, once with my finger holding the switch and once without, then again with the Wiimote in a waiting-for-connector mode.

My Wii is turned off with the power supply unplugged, there are no other devices with Bluetooth in my house.

how to get Bluetooth working.

There are other problems with this laptop, the card reader only supports SD cards, not Memory Sticks or xD cards. That's a problem for another day. However I would never recommend this laptop and this brand to anyone, but it was pretty cheap.

Acer :: 5570-4011- Installing Winxp Instead Of Vista Home

Dec 27, 2007

I have acer 5570-4011 laptop with vista home (and ubuntu on a separate partition). I rebooted from cd, using winxp pe, deleted all files on vista partition, except those in the root, and started to install win xp pro. After installation files were copied to the hard drive, I restarted without cd and when setup continued, it gave me "file ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded. Error code is 7".

On MS support site they say about ACPI or memory problems and suggest to press F7 during that step to skip ACPI check, but it doesnt help in my case.

How can I install WinXP ?

Acer :: Aspire 5570-2609 Will Not Boot. Hdd Light Flashes, And No Video Output

Oct 16, 2007

I have an Acer as5570-2609 aspire laptop that will not boot up. It is like new, hardly been used. When I power it up, the fan comes on for about 3 or 4 seconds, and the hdd light flashes three times in a row, then waits a second or two, the flashes three times again, then goes black. The dvd drive ejects and will spin up a disc, but thats it. I tried swapping in a known good hard drive and nothing helps. I also tried re-seating a few of the easily accessible modules, such as the ram and wireless. I still have not seen a single flicker of the LCD screen. No beeps, nothing...

Acer :: Upgraded Core Solo T1350 To Core 2 Duo T7200 On Aspire 5570 Guide

Jan 23, 2009

(UPDATES: DIY Bluetooth module guide added below)

upgrading my Aspire 5570 notebook more than a year ago. This time, Iím feeling lucky to share some of my experiences about how I finally upgraded my CPU from a Core Solo T1350Core 2 Duo T7200.

Again, thanks to everybody here in Notebookreview forum especially adinu, hoggie, Mack1982, TehSuigi, krazyphire and bigozone for their insights and knowledge that helps me a lot throughout the whole process. So, letís get started!

Pre-upgrading

Please refer to these post before you start. It'll save you a lot of time and trouble later on.
Upgraded Acer 3680 Celeron CPU to a T5300!
Aspire 5315 CPU Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide

What youíll need :Your new CPU (make sure it's compatible with your system ie; socket, FSB)Latest BIOS from Acer (upgraded to 1.3505 or latest)A good thermal paste (I would recommend Tuniq TX-2 or Arctic Silver 5 as well)Basic tools (screwdrivers, forceps, kitchen paper)Body static discharger (I would definitely recommend this as a precaution)Some alcohol, ear buds, sand paper grid 600,1200 & 2000 (optional for heat sink lapping)Lastly TIME and PATIENCE (youíll be needing these a lot definitely!)When youíre ready, lets get our hands dirty.

How to disassemble your notebook?
I found out a very good video tutorial on how to disassemble my Aspire notebook on YouTube. So please take your time to view it and follow step by step as shown to help you to go through the process.

Lapping your heat sink (optional)
Although itís not necessary, but I would recommend this process as another way to improve heat dissipation on your newly installed CPU. Refer to this page for detailed instructions.

The simple process:Clean your heat sink from old thermal paste residues with alcohol or equivalent of it using ear buds and kitchen papers.Apply a 600-grid sandpaper to smoothen the heat sink surface which comes into contact with your CPU.Repeat the process again with a 1200-gid sand paper until youíre satisfied.Finally, finish up by applying a 2000-grid sand paper to give you an almost mirror-finished surface. Wipe clean any dirt and residues left.....................................

Acer :: 3012WTMi RAM Upgrade

May 18, 2008

I have just bought a 4GB kit for this machine, Acer 3012WTMi, and with the two new modules in place the machine will not boot. I simply get a black screen with no chance to enter setup. If I use one of the new modules with one of the originals then it works and recognizes the amount of memory fitted. I can use either of the new modules in either of the two slots but not both.

Acer :: 4520, Upgrade 4GB Of RAM

Feb 17, 2009

I dont know why my laptop was lost 800MB of RAM, after I upgraded 4GB (2x2GB). Both, Windows XP and BIOS, have recognized 3262KB of RAM. After that I attempted to check with each of RAM, Windows XP and BIOS recognised 2GB. The problem is both RAM equipped at the same time.

I tried to update AMD processor but I found that the software,ver 1.3.2, is older than the current BIOS, 1.36. So it didnot affect.

What happen to my laptop?

ACER 4520: AMD Turino 64x2 Mobile Technology TL-58, 2x1.9GHZ
RAM Currently: 4GB (2x2GB)
NVIDIA Geforce 7000M
HDD 160GB

Acer :: Win 7 Upgrade Only 32 Bit On Disk

Dec 24, 2009

I received my free Acer upgrade disk from 32 Bit Vista HP to 32 Bit Win 7 HP. The disk says: The Disk Contains 32-bit Software Only

I understood from reading various forum sites that the upgrade disk contained BOTH 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Win 7, and by electing to do a "custom" clean install I could install the 64-bit version.

How come Acer only includes the 32-bit on the free upgrade disk?

Is there a way to install a "free" version of the 64-bit HP rather than the 32-bit version?

Acer :: 6920G Max Upgrade, Cpu+gfx+hd

Dec 9, 2009

I have an acer 6920g which i intend to upgrade to the maximum possible starting with the cpu, after a bit of research the only contenders are the T9500 and the X9000 but im wondering if its worth it for the x9000 as i believe the bios is locked out on my acer so wouldnt be able to overclock it.

Even still it is 200mhz faster than the T9500 but am i going to notice this in the real world?

Next will be memory, apparently the chipset only supports up to pc5300 667mhz ram but will take pc6400 800mhz ram and downclock..

So to confirm, there is no gain in putting in faster ram?

Either way i will be putting in 4gb of decent low latency ram.

Now for a tricky 1, graphics......

I currently have an ati hd3650 512mb card that resides in an mxm2 slot which when i bought the laptop was the best gfx card i could find in it but no i want to put a 9600gt in to compliment the rest of the upgraded system (as i do play the odd game!) but have not found anything confirming if they work fully, i have found a card on ebay that has an acer bios and is ddr3, i'm assuming that with an acer bios it should work?

Also i will be putting in a large but fast hard drive such as this

Acer :: Windows 7 Upgrade Kit

Feb 6, 2010

I had bought an Acer laptop with Vista Home Premium 32 bit in the period before the launch of Windows 7, and applied for the free Windows 7 upgrade kit.

Acer sends an upgrade disc that is of the same type as your Vista OS.

So I got an upgrade disc for Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit, as well as a product key on the COA.

What I want to ask is whether it is possible for me to install Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit through a clean install by finding a friend with the normal retail Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade DVDs, using the 64 bit DVD and then entering the product key that came with my Acer 32 bit Windows 7 HP upgrade disc.

Acer :: Best MXM Upgrade For My 6920G

Oct 25, 2009

My 6920G has a Geforce 9500M GS card in it atm. I have overclocked it as far as it will go and tbh, I'm still not happy.

What is the best compatible upgrade?

Am I right in thinking it's MXM-II and therefore the best card would be a 9600GT DDR3 that is found in the top-spec 8930G Aspires?

Is there anywhere that sells these cards with the Acer BIOS already installed?

I'm guessing a card from another brand laptop or with generic BIOS won't work?

Acer :: Ferrari Cpu Upgrade

Does anyone have any idea how I can sort this out? Possible bios hack etc?

I can run without my external graphics card fine @ 1.6ghz, with it the machine crashes constantly.

Acer :: Aspire One RAM Upgrade- GMA 950

Dec 9, 2008

Right now my Aspire one only has 1GB of RAM, which I guess is enough but 1.5GB won't hurt it at all. I was curious about the size and speed.

IF I bought a 2GB stick of RAM would it be regocnized? Also If I bought 800 MHz RAM what would it be clocked down to? Right now it's running at 533 Mhz I think, but CPU-Z is saying it's PC-5300 RAM. CPU-Z also says that I have one empty slot? What's that about? I thought that the Aspire One has 512MB built in and had one slot for a stick of RAM? Any ideas about CPU-Z is saying?

As all of you folks know, nearly every netbook has the GMA 950. The Aspire One is no exception to this. My One's BIOS will not let me choose the amount of RAM it's using for graphics. It says 8MB in a greyed out form. This means it's adaptive though because I can play AOE3 on it which requires 64MB. How can I choose how much RAM it uses?

Acer :: Upgrade 5920G

Sep 28, 2008

the 8600M GT is getting a bit dated now and I'd like to upgrade it to something friendlier if possible. where would I look for an MXM II GPU that would work with the current cooling solution that the 5920G has? I know the same thermal specs are necessary cause it can't do better...and with just the 8600M GT, playing COD4 multiplayer gets it so hot I have to stop cause the keyboard is too hot to touch!

I've got 2x2GB SODIMM"s to drop in to it...easy access to a the new Penryn series CPU's...just want a better GPU. something NOT DDR2.

Acer :: 5920G GPU Upgrade

Feb 25, 2010

I recentely purchased a 9500M GS for my Acer 5920G to upgrade from my 8600M GS. Now I have read the sticky regarding what cards can go in the 5920G and the 9500M GS is listed as one of them. The problem I am having though is that when I plug the card in and boot my machine, I get no display.

Now, this is what I have tried. I have tried to get a backup of the BIOS on the 9500M GS so i can use Nibitor to identify what it is. I followed the VGA flashing guide to where it says about restoring the BIOS blind but my laptop doesnt seem to boot at all i.e. setting the first drive to USB Key does nothing as the light doesn't blink.

I have tried putting my system BIOS back from the latest version (3813) to previous ones (3811, 3805) and even the default one my laptop came with (3708). Again this was to no avail. My 9500M GS still wont boot.

So this leaves me to this conclusion. The cards BIOS must be from a different vendor, and I imagine it would be ASUS. Is there any possible way I could get this card working in my system.
