I have a second monitor connected to my TP yoga and I want to work with laptop lid closed.
I set "When I close the lid" action to "Do nothing" when on battery power.
Now when I close the lid, the system is still on, which is good, but mouse cursor behaves strangely. After several seconds, it is usually moved to right bottom corner (over the clock/date area in desktop), with circle around it. Mouse is just completely unusable.
I am not sure what is wrong, maybe the touchpad/trackpoint/touch screen is being activated when the lid is closed, but the system is still running?
I have acer 5738G with ati mobility 4570 512mb GDDR3
The problem is ati 4570 mobility by default has memory speed of 800MHz but ati catalyst on me laptop shows memry speed of 500 mhz only i tried GPU-Z it also shows defalut clock 800mhz but current 500 mhz and message that current low speed is for low power consumption.
i want to know how can i increase it back to 800 mhz and will there be any heating problems at higher memory clock...
I am intending to buy acer aspire 5738G next friday. But I cannot find any valuable reviews on the net . I am concerned about it build and durability. the specs are fine. can any one tell me is it strongly built and durable or not. I hear a lot about the acer screen damage and other stuff.
I bought an acer aspire 5738G a couple of days ago with windows 7 x64 installed ,catalyst 9.9. When playing any game or using any 3D demanding application both my GPU temp. jumps up to 85-95 degrees C, and the CPU to 75-85 degrees C. according to GPU-Z my fan speed is always at 30% no matter how hot the lappy gets. I also wanna mention I didn't OC or use any modded stuff yet.
My questions are:
-Are these normal temps since this is my first acer and my previous lappy which wasn't an acer with a Nvidia Geforce GO7900 never got past the 75 degrees barrier
- Is there something wrong with the fan or it is supposed to kick in only at critical heat point
i have acer aspire 5738G witho windows windows vista i upgrade OS to windows 7 and every think ok but my problem with acer powr smart manager didnot work when i press the button not work and lamp not light and not work and open launch manager and i select power smart manager.exe but no change... i have acer upgrade kit and i try install drivers and app but no change
When I power on, after about 5-6 minutes the fan (I assume the CPU fan) kicks in. However, it then seems to remain on constantly until the laptop is turned off, even if I'm only idling. This is slightly annoying, not just because of the noise, but also it seems to have quite a noticeable effect on the battery life.
I have installed SpeedFan to keep track of the CPU temp and it seems that the fan kicks in initally when the core temps reach about 35 C, but then the fan does not switch off, even when temps drop back down to 25/26 C, which seems very cool.
On every other laptop I have used (none of which were Acers), the CPU fan only comes on now and again, as and when it is needed.
So, is this normal behaviour or is there possibly a fault with the fan control mechanism ? If so I will consider taking back to the retailer for an exchange.
my laptop overheating problems ever since I bought it, I almost tried everything ..... but alas nothing worked the final straw im hanging on is to downgrade my bios to the utterly old version 1.13 which is the last known stable & heat friendly version which is not on Acer website anymore .... So I was wondering if anyone has the windows 7 x64 executable bios 1.13 for aspire 5738G on their laptop
I have bought the Aspire 5738G over half a year ago and it was just a couple of days back from now, when Everest showed me a hardware report about an integrated Intel 4500MHD onboard, which is inactive.
I couldn't find any info on this matter online, so I thought that with your help and my readiness to disassemble my laptop, we could figure out a way to make use of this integrated chip, which would result in serious power savings when running on battery.
I am thinking that maybe there is some place in the circuitry that was cut in order to disable the chip or something, or that it has no access to the LCD and HDMI ports.
Also, I downloaded a Service Manual for my model and I couldn't find my 5738G specification in it.
My original hard drive of Acer aspire 5738G crashed and I bought a new 1 TB WD hard drive. I tried to reinstall Windows 7 from recovery disk. All data copy and system restoration (from 3 restoration disks) completed successfully. But after the auto reboot, during “Setup is applying system settings” stage I encountered error message “Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run this computer’s hardware”. I tried reinstalling the OS multiple times but every time I am getting the same error. Before replacing my hard drive, I was using Windows 7 Home Premium OEM version and now I was trying to restore the same in my system.
My 1410 has a very strange problem. If I put it to sleep with the lid open, it will properly stay asleep for hours and hours.
However, if I then close the lid, it will always wake up within 5 minutes (I can tell by the status lights). This happens regardless of the lid-closing action I have specified in Windows (hibernate, sleep, none).
If I tell it to hibernate on lid-closure, it will hibernate properly. If I tell it to sleep on lid closure, and close the lid, it will go to sleep and then quickly wake up again. What the hell could be doing this, and how can I fix it?
The laptop is a bone-stock aspire 1410, running windows 7-64, with up-to-date drivers and the latest BIOS (happened with old BIOS too).
For a few months now when I switch my Acer Aspire 5535 on for about 5 mins it sounds like the fan is rubbing against the bottom cover. It does go away when it warms up but its not very good when I have to use it on the train or in the library!
Is there anything i can do? Can i take the cover off and have a look without damaging anything? The laptop runs fine otherwise.
My Acer aspire switch 10 automatically turns itself off if it is charging and the lid is closed, when i tru to use it i find it hard to turn on and 99% or th time i need to hold the poer button for 10-15 seconds once or twice for it to power on. Never used to do this when i got it but not sure if it is windows being buggy or hardware...
when 3G for the Acer Aspire One is finally offered, new models, of course, will have 3G capability built in. Does anybody have a guess as to what kind of modification or accessory we will be able to use to get 3G on existing AAOs.
I would rather not have to go the route of the ATT USB DataConnect thingy, but will if I have to.
Alright I have looked at every single piece of literature I can find and I am stumped. I have an eMachines EM250 (mechanically identical to the AO D250) and I can not for the life of me figure out what the small card slot on the bottom of the computer is. I know the memory slot and the HDD slot but the third slot is a mystery. I think it is a mini-PCI slot for a solid state memory module but I'd like to find a definitive answer before I go any further.
I was testing out my microphone and I noticed that the sound is really staticy. I figure its some electrcal interference coming from somewhere. I muted every other sound input and changed physical locations. But the recordings I make sound like old staticy records.
I also turned down the record level down to 40 and boost level of the mic to 0dB but it will won't go away.
i can't seem to get my vent working. do i have to DL some codecs? drivers? i havn't really downloaded drivers for anything since i bought it last week. all i've done is download the softwareupdates, and latest safari
I am currently using an acrer aspire 2930z. It comes with two HDD, both of which have 111GB each. I am only using 1 HDD at the moment which is only around 52percent full. I want to move all my movies, music and games to my other empty one, (we'll call drive D)but when I do this my drive D only opens up as a folder. Itries to mark this HDD as active, but get a maessage telling me that if drive D has no OS installed on it, it could stop my comp from working. What I would like to know is...... Does this drive come with vista already installed?
this is only to save me buying an external drive, (which is probably the better option), but with this extra space on my laptop it would be handy to use.
My Extensa 4420 has a webcam. I can turn it on and see ugly pictures of me staring at the computer screen. The question I have, is what can I do with the camera. The computer does not seem to have come with any software that I can use to record video. Is there any free software that will do this?
In certain chatrooms the built in cam comes on automatically. I'd prefer to use a better external cam but I can't find an option in settings to switch to the external cam. It seems the internal cam comes on by default.
