Acer :: 5920g Vista To Win7

Sep 20, 2009

need some info about installing win 7.

I use vista home premium and i decided to go to Win7.

Here are some question

1. Should i upgrade or make a fresh install? (probably i think it's better a fresh install)

2.If i make a fresh install i need to format my C:?

3.But will the d2d console work after formatting c: so in case i want to return to Vista i just need to hit ALT+f10 and start the restoring process?

Acer :: Aspire 5920G- Upgrading To Vista X64

Apr 6, 2009

I have ordered this laptop recently (Spec is below), well, it's due to arrive tomorrow, and am probably going to upgrade to Vista x64, or at least give the new Windows 7 x64 a go on it. However, I'm just unsure as to whether it will be easy enough to migrate or whether I'm likely to have issues finding drivers for the relevant hardware. I hope someone here can give me some advice as attempting to scour the internet for a response for this particular model has been a nightmare, I've found the drivers page but it's all a bit confusing with seperate 64bit and then SP1 sections! ...

Acer :: 5920G Vista 64bit SP1 Driver

Jan 4, 2009

I will migrate to Vista Ultimate 64bit SP1 soon.

So I need drivers for my 5920G.

I've search around, and finally I found this link:
[url]

But, is that really a driver for Vista 64bit SP1? Or is it just for the old Vista 64bit? (not for Service Pack 1)? or it's all the same and won't have a problem if installed to 64bit SP1?

Does someone has another source to get the drivers?

Acer :: Win7 Won't Install On Vista Laptop 5630 Black Screen With Cursor

Dec 1, 2009

our laptop keeps throwing a flakey when trying to install Win7 Ultimate over the current crappy Vista OS.

Laptop passed the compatibility checker no probs & has all the updates installed, but every time we try, we get either

1. windows 7 install failure message then black screen with cursor

or

2. straight to black screen with cursor.

This is even after changing to the low res setting that is mentioned so often when googling the issue.

I've looked on the Acer site, but it says if I got it from pc world I should take it up with them?

Anyone here have any advice to get it to work, or should we just smash the laptop off a wall?

Sony :: Vista 32-bit Or Win7 32-bit On FW

May 15, 2009

if I can clean install Vista 32-bit or Win7 32-bit on current FW laptop, such as FW355 or FW378? FW comes pre-installed with Vista Home Premium 64-bit.

I want to buy FW, however I am using an application that runs only on 32-bit Windows. If I cannot run 32-bit Windows on FW it is kind of a deal breaker for me.

Sony :: Fx64 Vista & Win7 Drivers And Utilities

Mar 23, 2010

Now that I've got a F series here's a new thread with tested and working drivers and utils for a clean install. The SZ and AW drivers threads are still going strong with 1500+ and 500+ downloads respectively.

Drivers and Utilites are from US & EU VAIO Support. All drivers have been extracted to bypass the model version check.

How to Install

To install extract the archive to a folder, e.g C:drivers.Open Device Manager and right click through each device selecting "Update Driver Software". See pic Install_Step_1.jpgSelect "Browse my computer for driver software". See pic Install_Step_2.jpgBrowse to C:Drivers and make sure "Include subfolders" is checked and click Next. See pic Install_Step_3.jpg

If an updated driver is found it will be installed. Don't worry if an updated driver isn't found. Some devices don't need updates.....................

Sony :: AWx64 Vista & Win7 Drivers And Utilities

May 9, 2009

Driver and Utilites below are from VAIO FTP, US/EU VAIO Support and Intel Download Center. VAIO don't always post the same versions on their EU and US sites and new drivers aren't listed for older models even though they are compatiable. Sony are also slow to make the latest Intel drivers available. All drivers have been extracted to bypass the model version check, usually found on drivers from the US site.

How to Install

Most of the folders only contain the driver and *.inf files. I prefer to install drivers this way to prevent the installation of software I'll never use.

To install extract the archive to a folder, e.g C:drivers.Open Device Manager and right click through each device selecting "Update Driver Software". See pic Install_Step_1.jpgSelect "Browse my computer for driver software". See pic Install_Step_2.jpgBrowse to C:Drivers and make sure "Include subfolders" is checked and click Next.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV6 Mobo Swapout ->Recovery Vista 32 ->Win7 64

Oct 6, 2009

Would like to get my ducks in a row as to doing this and see if there's some problems i don't know about or better ideas of how to go about it.
Hp Pavilion Dv6 - vista 32bit

1)Have a new mobo on its way,4650 GPU mobo,taking out a 4530 GPU mobo.
As i understand i install the mobo and reboot using the F11 key which will hopefully have the system recognise the new mobo ok & install vista 32 all back to system default OR let me create recovery disc's with the new mobo "tattoo" recognised to do the same.
Correct or not?

2) The FREE upgrade to Win7 cost's $39 to ship to South Africa + waiting time so i'm probably just going to buy a retail copy of Win 7 and install the 64bit version.
Installing that will no doubt reformat the HD removing whatever HP has put there so before i do that should i collect what win7 drivers i can and drop them on a usb drive prior or do you think win7 will be able to load enough drivers to allow me to download drivers once its installed?

3)Is there any things HP have got hidden on the HD that reformatting is going to cause an issue with?

I guessing the recovery partion will get wiped.

Sony :: VGN-CR590C! Driver Related (Upgraded From Vista X86 > Win7 X64

Nov 5, 2009

I used to have Vista 32-bit on here and I recently upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit. The problem is that the Sony website doesn't release Windows 7 64-bit drivers for my model as it is only sold with Vista 32-bit.

[url]

As you can see, there is no drop down menu anywhere to select which operating system I have.

And here:
[url]
it says that Windows 7 is not supported. (I have ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and my computer seemed to check out and pass all the system requirements.)

where all necessary driver updates for my computer are, as many things I've noticed either don't function the same or at all as they used to when I had Vista?

Here's a list of all the problems that I've noticed so far.

- Scroll on touch pad didn't work (Resolved by downloading Synaptics drivers)

- Plugging into the headphone jack didn't do anything (Resolved by downloading Realtek drivers but Windows Update keeps insisting I install their Realtek drivers which brought up the problem again)

- Volume buttons change the volume in very tiny increments and doesn't show the levels on screen (Major issue for me.)

- Doesn't support Dual/Multi Monitors

- Doesn't recognize MIDI Controllers (Resolved. Not sure how.)

- Card reader doesn't work. (Another major problem.)

- Webcam doesn't work. (Built-in mic seems to work fine.)

- "AV Mode" button does nothing (I've never had a use for this button but before it would make the whole screen go black.)

- Can't use the brightness up/down function keys

Sony :: Modified LV2Go 190.40 Vista/win7 32Bit Driver For VAIO

Sep 23, 2009

I moddified LV2GO nvidia 190.40 beta driver INF for VAIO notebooks. Vaio Brightness control is full working now.

I modded it for nvidia gf 9300m gs and tested on vaio vgn-cs with win vista 32bit but should be compatible with some of the newer VAIO models.

-h264 hardware GPU-decoding is supporing now (It utilizes only a few percent of the CPU)

Instalation:

1. If you already have an existing nVidia driver installed, uninstall it with its Uninstaller, then use Driver Sweeper to remove any remaining files/registry keys and reboot before you attempt to install this driver.

2. Overwrite the existing nv_disp.inf in 19040_win7x32.exe with my moddified v190.40 INF file.

Download:

My moddified v190.40 INF - here Reuploaded

Acer :: 5920G LCD Won't Come On After A While

Feb 7, 2008

My 5920G which I got for Christmas is giving me some problems.

I have gone to power options and and changed the settings so when I close the lid, nothing must happen. But when I come back in about 20 minutes after leaving the lid closed, there is no way of me getting the LCD to start up. The only way I can get past this is by pressing the power button in for a few seconds forcing it to shut down. Obviously this is bad for my notebook. How do I get this sorted out? The same thing happens if I leave the lid open and come back in a while.

Acer :: Applying MX-2 On The 5920g

Mar 3, 2009

well i have decided to replace the stock thermal paste on my 5920g, however, i was suprised to see that acer used therma pads intead of thermal paste

im even more suprised to see that there are thermal pads all over my gpu and cpu

heres a rough picture of how it looks like

silver color denotes where thermal pads where installed

the weird thing is that the copper plate of the heat sink only touches the parts of the picture with the orange circle

should i put AC MX-2 on the areas where i found thermal pads or just on the areas where the copper plates of the heat sink touches the core

Acer :: My 5920G Won't Charge

Apr 6, 2009

Acer 5920G won't charge. When I plug in the charger the light that normally comes on to indicate that it is charging does not light up and in windows the icon that indicates that it is charging does not come up either.

My PC is the Acer 5920G best buy configuration, about two years old and no components are overclocked.

I was using it when this happened, I just noticed that the light went off and then it wouldn't charge when I plugged in the charger. As far as I know all the other components work correctly though it does have poor battery life. I was downloading a large file so I had it running for about six hours straight if that makes any difference.

I've checked the charger itself and nothing came loose. The green light on the charger also lights up when I plug it in so it is probably not the outlet that is the problem plus I've tried it in multiple outlets.

I'm pretty sure its either the battery or the charger, but I would like to know for sure and get advice from anyone else who may have had this problem.

Acer :: 5920G Could Not Even Boot

Dec 8, 2009

Past few days I got my 8600M GT 256MB DDR2 GPU overheated and it is broken now. Sigh!! The system was still bootable and I did even hear the login sound not until today when I just unplugged the HDD and GPU myself. When I put them back together, I won't boot as usual. It stops loading a while after I turned it on and stays freeze until I shut it off.

FYI, I removed the HDD to copy a backup of my content into another PC. While connecting to other PC, I did change some setting on the Ownership of some folder to get it accessible. As for the GPU, I just simply removed it to take a look myself and snap some photo of it, then inserted it back as before.

So, I wonder will these techies stuff I did awhile back could corrupted the bios that would make the system halted halfway.

Additional information that I would like to share is that I have decided to replace my GPU with ATi Mobility Radeon HD3650 512MB DDR2 instead of the original and did learn the method to do so. Read on some info regarding flashing the GPU, but was not sure bout it.

Acer :: My 5920G Is Dead

Oct 18, 2008

I tried installing Service Pack 1 and it won't boot. Microsoft has just sent me a Vista Home Premium Repair CD that will hopefully fix it. I have Recovery Discs, but then I'll lose all my data. This is the 2nd time that my 5920G has broke like this, is there a huge design flaw with this laptop?

Is Acer always like this? It was such a high end laptop for its price (8600M GT, Core 2 Duo 1.5 Ghz, 2 GB RAM, HDMI, HD-DVD, for $1099), but I can never trust this company again.

Acer :: 5920g Hinge

Feb 15, 2009

I have a 5920g computer which I adore, sadly we always hurt the ones we love, I dropped it and broke the right hinge, because of that the plastic frame of the monitor ripped 2. It still works perfectly fine, but its annoying as hell to watch my lappy like this all the time. I called acer, and found a provider who can repair it for 400 dlrs (I payed 1000 dlrs for the lap) so well, its seem outrageous to me paying 40% of the total price for a hinge replace.

Anyway, I found the hinge and the other parts on Ebay singapore, for less tan 100 dlrs. So, heres my question, does anyone know how hard is it to replace this parts, I am a mildy medium kinda handy guy, with some hardware skills. So anyone know if this is hard, is there a guide around that can show me the process, or should I just pay the 400 dlrs and get this thing done.

Acer :: 5920G Ram Vents

Dec 5, 2008

Ive taken the back cover off my 5920 many times and really never took a look at it until now. What i noticed is that the vents for the ram are covered by a glossy black see through tape rather than mesh, which covers all the other vents.

Ive linked a picture below: add http into brackets

Has anyone else noticed that in their laptop? or is mine the only one where they ran out of mesh and decided tape was just as good. I wanna just rip it off.

Another thing, has anyone been able to overclock their 5920?(mines got a T8100) ive been searching for days and cant find anyone who has. I always have my backcover off and have my laptop resting on a custom dual 120mm fan notebook cooler. My idle temps are from 37-42, load is just over 60. I wanna push this thing just a bit more.

Acer :: 5920g Blackscreen

Dec 6, 2008

My 5920g start it wont even get to the postscreen happened right after the hdd got messed up.So i changed i figured that it was just the hdd that kept it from starting but nothing happened.So i asked and some told me it could be anything im really hopping its that its just the gcard since its the 8600m gt.One person told me to put a cd in the drive and if its spins it its probably the card and not the motherboard or cpu but idk.So best case if its the 8600m gt, could i upgrade it to the 9600m gt or the 9650m gt since they also are mxm2.

I think the bios support the 9600m gt but im not sure about the 9650m gt.

I really wana finish my fallout 3 game i was almost at the end.

Acer :: How To Increase 5920G RAM

Nov 24, 2008

I am a "silver surfer" who is starting to enjoy "playing" and "tweaking" my Acer Aspire 5920G on pre-installed Vista SP1 as a little hobby to pass the time

So far I have confined myself to dabbling with software and Vista itself but am now thinking about becoming more adventurous and upgrading the RAM from present 2GB to 4GB.

Firstly, is this a worthwhile upgrade bearing in mind I do not run any particularly intensive applications? In other words will I notice a performance difference in,for instance, boot times etc ?

Secondly, a few months ago I think I saw an article or thread in this Forum explaining how to increase the RAM in a 5920G and containing a couple of very useful diagrams.

Acer :: 5920g Won't Post

May 17, 2009

I thought I hibernated or maybe something triggered it back on... i don't know! But my laptop has been sitting inside a drawer while it was running! And I don't remember when the last time I used my laptop and stuck it in there! I opened it up and I saw was BSOD!

So I just turned it off and turned it back on. Nothing posts on the screen and the hard drive light will blink for a second and then stop. Sometimes the fan will just turn off and it will constantly reboot itself. When that happens it only stays on for a few seconds but nothing shows up on the montior.

Man I think I screwed it up. I opened it up and I don't see any physical damage. I even took the heat sinks off and the chips look normal. I don't know what to do now. I have already tried running without a hard drive, only 1 ram stick in either slot. Nothing.

i will note that i will probably get some expert tech ppl to fit any upgrade cos i dont want to risk breaking my laptop - but i know that if i go in there they will sell me what ever they have - and it will cost me alot more than if i buy on the net first.

I dont know what to do now.

Whilst fitting the bluetooth i managed to break the connector for my keyboard but ordered a new one which should come tomorrow or friday.

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.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G

Mar 6, 2009

I just acquired an Acer Aspire 5920G with NVidia GeForce 8600M GS.

I opened the back cover to see what it looks like and it looks like the graphics card is replaceable. Itís an MXM-II card in 73 mm x 78 mm dimensions.

Iím planning to replace the graphics card and I have couple questions.

Does the motherboard or the system support Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 MXM Ė II or Nvidia Quadro FX3600 512 MB MXM II?

How do you upgrade the CPU? I unbolted all the bolts on the heat sink but the frame is in the way and I canít slide the heat sink assembly out as simple as I thought it would be. Does the mainboard support X9000 extreme CPU?

Is there a link to a manual where it shows how to break apart the laptop? I might change the screen, etc.

Is it worth putting the 5920G on steroids with X9000 cpu and Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 or Nvidia Quadro FX3600?

Acer :: Restoring 5920G

Mar 30, 2009

I want to sell my laptop but i think it would probably be best to restore it to an as new condition first!

My first problem is when i got the laptop as new, it displayed 2 hard drives (or partitions i think) at around 100GB+ each. Now i still have the main drive (ACER C: showing 111GB) but i've lost the other. This started when my friend decided to install Linux on the laptop using GRUB, i got rid of it but it hasn't come back!

The other problem i have is, i tried to use the Acer eRecovery Management utility to "Restore system to factory default" but when i enter the password and click Ok, it simply restarts the laptop and that's it!

I'm not sure if the laptop came with any CD's as i've opened the original box and it doesn't contain any!
