i have the 174.51 drivers from acer for my 9500m gs and i was wondering if i should update them to the 186.03 from nvidia. I heard that the ones from acer have some optimizations for the hdmi port and if i connect the cable everything will work great on the tv ( sound , image, everything). Should i get the new ones or stick with the old ones ?
Ive been having playing my games thought, every time I play my driver crashes. so i try to update my nvidia driver which the laptop came with, now i go to nvidia scan my driver and says i got to download the update from acer. So i look for it and i search for it...downloading the setup...and i extract it...and two files are corrupt...anyways, is that happening for anyone else or the site is down or something.
i had installed windows7 on my acer 6920g. Everything works fine except for the audio. I tried the default windows update drivers, vista drivers that came with my laptop and also windows7 drivers of 6930g. Tuba doesn't work at all and the sound is like a tin can. And for some drivers the microphone doesn't work. (Currently im using 6930g windows 7 drivers and the microphone works. Tuba is still not working.)
On top of that the sound becomes distorted every few minutes and i have to restart media player or any audio playing application to make it normal. After few minutes of playing any audio it happens again. Sometimes when playing game the sound will become distorted and the only way to make it normal is to restart the game.
Well my PC came OEM installed with Vista 32 Bit edition and I would like to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit edition (as i get a student discount).
Looking around the forums and internet in general, I have noticed that on the acer 6920g there seems to always be a problem with drivers such as the CineDash, Realtek, TV tuner, Modem, Card reader, Fingerprint, Webcam, Bluetooth etc.. I have also read that you can fix the launchmanager by running in Vista compatiability mode.
If i do an in-place upgrade (going from vista 32-bit to windows 7 ultimate) will it be fine? Also is there anything I should be cautionous of such as the drivers etc..
I would actually really like to do a clean installation but I'm worried that the keyboard "quick" buttons (such as the internet,bluetooth,mail on the side of keyboard will not work)- can someone please confirm if I did a clean installation, would theese buttons still work?
Also I have two games:GTA IV, Call of Duty 5 , will theese both work on windows 7 (or on compatability).
I recently got a Dell Precision M4300 from a friend and had a few questions.
When i got the laptop, I reformatted the Laptop and Reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2. I proceeded from Microsoft to Update to SP3 and so on.
Well I also Went to Dell's Website and downloaded all the necessary drivers (using the service tag) for this laptop and installed them.
Now here is where I ran into a problem,
When I installed the NVIDIA drivers for the NVidia Quadro FX 360M video card, everything seemed to go fine. Then I rebooted the Laptop, and now every time I reboot, my hardware acceleration is defaulted back to None, and it gives me multiple pop ups about this issue. I go into the settings and turn the Acceleration back to full and it goes away.
This is a major problem, and is really frustrating to deal with everytime the laptop is booted up.
My other problem, is when I open up Internet Explorer, It tends to lock up the browser for no reason when Loading a website. I then CTRL+ALT+DEL and attempt to close iexplore.exe via the task manager. It closes the browser but does not shut down the browser, making it impossible to browse, so then I have to reboot.
here are the specs of the PC, from the device manager and drivers I have gotten
Dell Precision M4300 NVidia Quadro FX 360M 512mb Video Graphics Card TSST 8x dvd+-R burner 120GB Hard Drive 3.5GB of Ram 2.5GHZ T9300 Core 2 Duo Processor 1394 Port 2 USB ports External Monitor Ports Wifi Support Bluetooth Support Windows XP SP2 Pro
I present you a driver shootout, a test of 30 nVIDIA drivers, on a Dell Inspiron 1520 configuration, an iMAC and an Acer Aspire 6920G. First part, the one who handles the Windows XP drivers testing is over and published. The chart is composed in 2 parts, one with the results (points for 3DMarks and fps for Crysis games) and one with the information about it. When was launched, if it has WHQL, PhysX and PhysX driver included, CUDA support, GPGPU folding client, Issues, New Features, Original Products supported (if you have a desktop board and you want to keep the WHQL status active)... and a whole article about what does ForceWare means.
The article is in romanian, but the datas are in english, so everyone could understand (if there are enough request, I will translate it all in english). Anyway, have a good time on my website and be sure to visit it from time to time, the charts get updated every time a new driver will be released (and we will also include older models too).
I don't know what happened but now when I tilt my display past a certain point, the screen display gets garbled. It does look like one of the joins at the back has come undone too, probably related. Must be a loose connection.
Best to send it back to Acer? It shipped with a faulty mic connection too to be honest.
What would be the best way of getting it back to Acer? I'm in Ireland I ordered it off laptopsdirect.ie. It's still a few months within warranty as far as I'm aware. I don't want to strain my neck too much so I will need to get it fixed soon enough.
I have the same problem as the user in another thread Acer Aspire 6930 screen replacement but since the layout of 6920 and 6930 are different, I stuck at the part when I have to pull out two video cables beneath speaker cover, cause there is only one cable (that I am aware of) in 6920. So I hope someone could explain to me what to do next after removing speaker cover, cause I don't want to brick my laptop
I'm going to start with the LCD panel first. The benefit from CPU upgrades seems nominal, and GPU upgrades seem expensive and a PITA.
a) Is there a guide/howto regarding how to change panels yet? b) Is there any issues going from 1366x768 -> 1920x1080? Is it even possible? c) I can't seem to find reliable places that sell the SAMSUNG, is a place like this reputable: [url]
I have a 6920G which somehow got a hair behind the screen some time ago.
My warrant ended some time ago so I guess I need to remove it myself, if I want it removed (and I do).
The hair is in the middle, not too far from the bottom so it sure is annoying. It looks like a very, very thin strain of hair, most likely from one of our cats.
I have googled for many hours for ways to disassemble my laptop and even tried it myself without a guide and I came pretty far until I gave up in fear of breaking the screen.
Do anyone have a guide or something on how I can remove the LCD to clean it off? Far as I understand service manuals are not to be asked for (for legal reasons?) so a guide or detailed instructions is what I desperately need.
Been trolling around here for a while for great advice for my laptop but it seems that I've got a problem now.
While just doing everyday work my screen started showing a grainy/ red tint all over with slight adjustments of the screen angle, it's progressively gotten worse as now no angle at all will give the clear normal picture.
The machine itself is working fine and when I plug it into an external monitor the picture is perfect, it just seems to be occuring on the screen.
I was wondering if there was anything I could personally do to fix the problem as I don't really want to be shipping it to Acer at the moment as I'm out of the country for a while.
My acer 6920g restarts itself frequently after showing blue screen. The error in the blue screen is "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" each time. I tried updating my driver to the new one but still the same problem.
I have tried to install XP Home on my Acer 6920g but with no success.
I made an XP disk with the sata drivers via Nlite which was recognised, installed the OS but on first boot the laptop gives me the BSOD but as it is so quick I am unable to get any error code. The laptop will not boot on safe mode either which makes me think there is a physical (hardware) issue that doesn't like XP.
I've got a HP Pavilion dv6000z notebook. It came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit but, I recently changed the OS to Windows XP Home Edition SP3 32-bit. It was a completely new installation of the OS.
Now, I've got a weird problem. I watch the NBA games on this website for international viewers at ilp.nba.com and it goes through an external company named RayV. They provide their own software to watch the games on, I believe it is a p2p kind-a program [if that helps?]; RayV Viewer. In this, the broadcasted video size is 608x336 or something like that and averages about 800k-1000k speed/bandwidth?. They call it the "HD" version.
The problem is, the video continuously "stutters" every 4-7 seconds.
My room mate has the newer dv5t series notebook with an intel core 2 duo 2.0ghz processor nd an intel integrated graphics adapter [x3100/4500?] nd the video works absolutely perfectly on his notebook. Same goes for my friends Apple Macbook [old "lower spec'd" white version] however with mine it has this continuous stuttering problem. I've tried increasing the process priority through task manager but that didn't help either. Most HD videos work fine in WMP [.mkv 720p] though they stutter every now nd then too.
Like about every 10 - 13 minutes, maybe a little bigger gap but it happens nonetheless.
I've tried the 182.08 drivers from laptopvideo2go.com & the DOX 182.46 version as well as the 86.38 version from windows update but none of them have been able to solve it. Any ideas as to what I could try?
I'm currently downloading the beta of Windows 7 to see how that works on this notebook, I believe the RC is just about to be released & is on some sites so could give that a shot but would love to solve it in XP itself.
Does anyone know which is the latest driver (working ) for 8600 GT. I'd really like to update. I tried 181.20 and 22. In unmodified ini "setup could not find any compatible hardware". In modified ini dll files were missing.
And also another thing. All the time when i play games the laptop just shutsdown like it didnt had a power but its on AC. when it boots no errors shows. Maybe i'll try the 179.28 to see. In Vista this never happened!
Are these safe to install on my DV7T? I notice HP has never issued an official graphics driver update for this notebook. The one and only version from them is from November 2008.
The release highlights has me salivating - particularly the bit about a 45% increase in Mirror's Edge with antialiasing enabled. Since there are about 7 months of driver updates in this release I should see some big improvements in my games.
Where can I get the best drivers for the 9600m GT? I downloaded the drivers for the GeForce 9m series off nvidia.com but they don't recognize my hardware. Could somebody point me in the right direction? Oh and I'm running Windows 7 64-Bit.
