Acer :: 6920G Performance Halving Randomly

Oct 20, 2008

my several-month old 6920G (running on vista 32bit, no hardware upgrades) has had a problem for the entire time i've owned it. Its performance seems to halve temporarily whenever i run a demanding program on it(Battlefield 2 at medium-high video settings), and it switches back and forth between normal and half its performance, staying at half for ~10-20minutes and full for 5-10, on average.

The laptop already has most of the annoying acer programs disabled as well as DWM, anything usually safe to remove.

Is this problem caused by stressing the laptop out too much? I played the same game with slightly lower settings, on my (equally computer-inexperienced) friend's sony vaio laptop(cant remember the model) with the same amount of RAM and 1.8GHz processor, and the performance was constant! (and at times better 3: )

Also, ive noticed that my advanced power settings on High Performance Plan changed on their own to default the 2nd time, and the lowest setting of the processor power management the first time.. although it hasnt happened since the first month, and the performance issue is still biting me in the behind..

Acer :: 5315 Randomly Shuts Down

Jan 28, 2009

In the past week, my aspire 5315 running vista premium 32bit has been randomly shutting off for what seems like no apparent reason. There's no warning of the shut down, it just turns off. It does this whether connected to the internet or not, and there isn't any one program that's the common denominator. Also, it doesn't boot up successfully every time (maybe 1 out of every 4 attempts). Instead, it just stays on a black screen with a single white blinking horizontal dash (the character two spaces to the left of the backspace button + shift). The computer had started doing this initially when I installed the latest update through Windows Update. I used System Restore and the problem seemed to be fixed. Then the problem started again a couple days later while watching "Lost" on ABC.COM. I ran Windows Defender and it didn't come up with anything.

I've tried running Kaspersky a few times, but the computer shuts down well before the scan is finished (even in safe mode). Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Acer :: Aspire E15 Randomly Shutting Down

Jan 19, 2015

I got a new Acer a few months ago and it worked fine in the beginning.  In the last few weeks, it has been randomly shutting down.  It does not show the normal shut down message you would see when using power button or Start Menu but just shuts off.  When it comes back on, it says Windows did not shut down properly.
 
I seemed to have narrowed this down to when I move the screen or move the laptop.

Acer :: 5735Z Performance

Apr 25, 2009

Just purchased a 5735Z and I know it's not going to be the most powerful machine when it comes to games, but i've found its performance dismal in even some of the older games.

I've been playing quakelive a bit lately, but I can't run it past 800x600 without major lag, and fullscreen is unplayable even at 640x480. I installed Sims 2 just to test out an older game and that is running at about 15-20fps max at lowest detail.

I've tried updating the drivers, and I have the latest chipset and graphics ones. Do you think installing XP would help performance? Also what about using a 64bit operating system - is the T4200 a 64bit chip and would that help at all?

Acer :: New HDD In 6920g

I have bought a 500gb SATA HDD to replace the stock 250gb one.

I would install the drivers from the website but for some reason they don't seem to detect the webcam etc. I also can not find the link for the bluray player.

Acer :: My 6920g And WoW

Nov 9, 2009

I have noticed my 6920g's fan to go annoying loud when playing Warcraft, which indeed is a pretty graphic instensive game depending where you are in WoW.

My question is to anyone else who owns a 6920g and plays WoW, do you have the same fan problems as me? Sure I understand it isnt going to be silent but recently it has seemed to get worse and it's really doing my nut in.

Comments and thoughts, obviously welcome.

I tried doing a search for similar problems but I kept getting a black screen for some reason.

Acer Aspire V3-371 :: Touchpad Freezing Randomly

Sep 22, 2014

I have a brand new Aspire V3-371-596F.  Since the first boot, I have been having problems with the touchpad freezing randomly.  The two finger sroll is reversed and I cannot access any settings to change the direction, either.  I downloaded the suggested Synaptics driver from the Acer website, but Windows will not let me install the driver for the touchpad. 
 
When I go into Device Manager -> Mice and other pointing devices, there is only one device listed: HID-compliant mouse.  It says the manufacturer is Microsoft, and not Synaptics.  When I try to Update Driver, I select the downloaded Synaptic driver it says the best driver for my device is already installed.
 
How do I tell the computer that it does not have a Microsoft mouse installed so I can use the correct Synaptics driver?  
 
I should also mention that a Synaptics HID Device does show up under Device Manager -> Human Interface Devices.  However, windows does not seem to recognize that this device is the mouse.

Acer :: Aspire 7740G Performance

Mar 21, 2010

I seem to have some driver problems with my brand new acer aspire 7740G.

I've got the model with i3 core in it.

The thing is that I absolutely can't run any games really...

I've tried both Bad company 2 and modern warfare 2.. And I have massive lag with everything on low. I know this can only be something with my drivers to do. Since this laptop is much better than my old LG. And my old LG could run both bad company 2 and modern warfare 2 with graphics around medium...

I've been looking around, and the only driver error my computer can find is intel turbo boost technology driver. But I think I read somewhere that I don't need it because it is only for the i7 core? Aswell as it comes up with an error with my audio but that shouldn't have any influence on the performance..

Also.. I tried running CPU-Z and it doesn't come up with any information at all on my memory(ram) and and shows the model name of my graphic card (HD 5470).. It doesn't show any clocks or anything at all....

Yes I've tried to download some of the drivers from acer's site but it obviously still don't want to work...

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Bad Performance

Jan 2, 2008

My Aspire 7520 laptop is running good , and all goes well.. But when I want to play a game (lets say WoW) , the game has a strange , stuttering lag... Like when you have to many applications on. Its almost if my computer can't handle it.

My Laptop has these specifications , and i wonder if it has anything to do with this.

Windows Vista Home Premium
AMD 64 Athlon x 2 (Dual-core processor)
NVIDIA GeForce 7000M videocard
120GB hard drive disk space
2024MB RAM DDR

I just bought it brand new, I've had it for about 2 weeks now. And I was wondering how i could make the games go faster... Ive looked about everywhere and no solutions so far.

What i have tried:
-Letting the game run on only 1 core-FAILED
-Trying to set up XP on my computer-FAILED miserably to the point where i was afraid i screwed up my computer fully. Lucky someone helped me, as i couldn't run the backup for some reason... he let me autoboot vista without autobooting XP... next time ill need more info before i F up my computer

(Also , would it help in game performance when i downgrade to XP?)

Acer :: 6920G:hacked By Pca

Oct 4, 2009

I have a 6920G with 4Gb of RAM, a C2D T9300 and the Geforce 9500GS running Vista 64-bit.

For some reason I'm only getting 3DMark03 scores around 5200-5300 but I've seen benchmarks of identical systems much much higher.

Why is this?

My brother-in-law has a 6920 with a gig less RAM, a lesser C2D T5700 but a Radeon HD3650 and his 3DMark03 score is 10500.

Should my 9500GS really suck so much ?

Acer :: 6920G Freezing Up

Dec 24, 2008

Any 6920G owner have their hard drive access light stuck on "on" for about 30 seconds or so and have their laptops freeze for this duration? Freeze as in as soon as I click any window, it turns white. This happens every now and then, doesn't matter what I'm doing.

Acer :: 6920g Overheating Or

Dec 29, 2008

Some of us know that the 6929g sometimes mostly during gaming downclocks....

But can anybody explain to me, why i can get the following temps (tested separately)

cpu, max before downclocking:
realtemp: 91
hw monitor: 76

gpu, stock powermizer on
gpu-z 73 (stopped myself still no downclocking)

But then when i start playing cod5 my cpu starts downclocking @ 58 (hw monitor), while GPU @ 63....

Why does this only happen while gaming when it seems that both cpu and gpu can handle much higher temps?

Combined it should reach even higher temps but it doesn't because it downclocks?

Is there something else that can force the cpu to downclock?

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Fps

Jul 16, 2009

I've got the acer aspire 6920G, and when i play world of warcraft my fps drops to 7 in 25man raids. I play with really low options.

I've always had low fps, i tried installing windows Xp, vista and now windows 7 and nothing helps.

Now i must say, win7 had the best result. My fps increased in major cities, but in raids it's still the same thing.

I defragged my HD, I use a 64bit to use my full ram, I run no background programs, all options are on low, and i still get 7fps.

Acer :: Aspire 6920G RAM 3GB Or 4GB

Jan 22, 2009

i've just got an Acer Aspire 6920G and i have a question about the RAM.

The sticker on the palmrest says it has 4GB of DDR3 RAM, as does the box. But the system information on the computer says 3GB, CPUz says it has 4GB.

I've opened it up and there are definitely 2 sticks of 2GB DDR3 RAM, so why does the Windows system info say it only has 3GB?

Acer :: 6920G Bios 1.04 Or 1.02

Nov 14, 2008

if anybody has a older version of the bios for Acer aspire 6920G, please send it to tbulls@gmail.com, thanks so much.

I've refreshed my bios to 1.07 and I have tried 1.06 and 1.10.
I am not sure if they are official release version, but since I've refreshed my bios with these versions, my computer fails.

In the past, I could use recovery DVD to restore my system, and audio drive work fine, very high quality. Now it's gone, even I use recovery DVD, my audio drive does not works fine.

It sounds like a realtek HD public drive (low sound quality), and I cannot use plug-in microphone when 5.1 Dolby effect opened.

Acer :: 6920G Will NOT Take A Microphone

Jan 9, 2009

No matter what I do it will not take a microphone. The mic is working, I plugged it into an amp. It can't be the connector as I just got a new one today and tried it on the Aux input of a headphone amp.

This is absolutely ridiculous. I remember having this trouble before. I can't even seen to access "line in" as an option when recording anymore either. What's going on? I need to record some stuff and I can't use the crappy in built mic for that.

Acer :: Upgrading Hhd In 6920g

Mar 24, 2010

I made a purchase to upgrade my cpu to a T9300, today I decided to attempt to upgrade my gpu as I found this on ebay [url] (9600m gt for 109), by the way I am aware of the bios isue and needing a hdmi connection to begin with! but now I thought that seen as I done all this allready that I mayaswell make it a clean sweep and go for a faster hdd whille I'm at it

But what I would like to know is, would I be able to install a new coppy of vista on to my new hdd then install empowering technology and then use the back up image that I have allready created on my external hdd so that I would'nt have to mess around with installing every single one of my programs, apps and games again? as it litteraly takes me about 2-3 days to get it the way I want it (recently took it back tio factory default btw and it was a nightmare lol), or is there a better way to go around it?

Acer :: 6920G Throttling

May 19, 2010

I've had the Acer 6920G for quite some time, I realized I should put a stop to throttling/downclocking.

I tried the several ways which came from this site, especially from flipfire and DarkSilver. I already undervolted my cpu, but after I played L4D2 for about 10 mins it started to throttle again. And the post which DarkSilver made was to go to regedit and change some settings in the RightMark CPU Utility, I've done that yet it still throttled.

I also attempted to go to BIOS and check if I could disable EIST, but there was no option. Does anyone have any idea how to solve this? I've updated my drivers and everything, and I also upgraded to Windwos 7 - but it still stays the same way.

Acer :: Undervolting 6920g

Nov 26, 2008

decided to try out undervolting to solve what i suspect are cpu overheating issues which causes the gpu to downclock when playing games... i know others have done the same.. question is, how far below the default voltage have you guys gone? the default for the 12x multiplier is 1.1365v and right now im testing 1.0125v... i think ive undervolted a considerable amount already but have only gotten 1 or 2 degrees off my max cpu temp... also, do i have to undervolt all the multipliers? or is it ok to have my 12x multiplier at a lower voltage than the other multipliers? i dont really have the time to find the right voltage for all the multipliers
