Acer :: 6920g Windows RC 7100

Aug 17, 2009

I recently upgraded my operating system from vista home premium to windows 7 RC1. Few of the obstacles I faced were:

Screen resolution would not increase above 1024x768 and Aero was stuck in basic mode - both fixed by updating nVidia driver

Media Control on the left doesnt work - currently i got the mute button to work, however

I have no volume control. Tried installing Acer empowering technology which failed to work under the operating system under various compatibility modes.

Has anyone managed to view Blue-Ray disks with the above combination ? Seems WMP needs a codec to play such disks.

Sony :: Windows 7 RC X64 (7100) On Vaio AW11Z

May 3, 2009

Most functionality is provided by installing the Firmware Extension Parser (SODSNC-14727000-64) followed by Sony Notebook Utilities (SOAOTH-43900000-64) I added the Upek and Touchpad drivers and that was about it !

However there is no CF support - anyone know what driver is responsible for this slot ?

Acer :: 6920G, Windows 7 Experience

Jan 19, 2009

Thought I'd put my experience with the Window 7 Beta on my Acer Aspire 6920G, for those considering it but not sure whether it works etc.

Installation: Installation went smooth, picked up alot of things out of the box, but for the things it doesn't, you can use the backup feature on the vista partition to create a disc with all the drivers etc. on

Drivers: Well there are some you'll have to get yourself, e.g. Graphics Card drivers, I've got the HD3650 flavour of machine and my drivers are found here: [url]

Another driver that didn't work, and the one from the drivers disc doesn't either is the SD Card reader, however you can get the drivers direct from JMicron here: http://www.jmicron.com/Driver.htm go into the ftp ( there's a link towards the end of the text) and get the driver for the JMB38X not 36X, this driver works a charm.

I can't speak for ExpressCard devices as I don't use them myself.

Sound works out of the box.

Even after installing the drivers for it the webcam refuses to work.

With the drivers from the driver disc created in Vista, bluetooth works............

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Windows XP

Apr 9, 2009

Alright, I recently installed Windows XP Dark Edition on my 6920G. Now, before going any further, yes this isn't an official version, it's a mod made by people... however, it does work- I installed it on my friends Dell and he has no problems whatsoever.
So, I changed the HDD to IDE mode because SATA and XP don't go together! The whole thing was working fine for about 20 days until this morning the laptop froze. I couldn't move the mouse, and task manager wasn't working. I turned it off and restarted- only to see the load ar on windows freeze. It stays like this for ever and I'm forced to manual restart again. The only thing that successfully works is Safe Mode...
----------------------------------
Now, to give a little background info, I've installed another version of XP before this. I had the same problem after a few days no matter how many reinstalls. Also, the XP repair feature (and this is what worries me) says:
No HDD found. Please ensure drives are powered on blah blah...
So, I'm here without a laptop and this familiar problem of a ed OS! Last time, I just formatted the C: drive, and reinstalled. I even updated BIOS incase that was an issue.
----------------------------------
Now, I know reinstalling the OS may cure the problem, but it's only a temporary fix, and I want a real solution. I rang Acer support, who tell me it's probably a software problem from microsoft update... I don't really believe this since each time (and I've done about 6 reinstalls of XP) the timing of this fatal error is random, ranging from one day to this- about 20 days.

When windows 8 comes out I may wish to upgrade since I heard it takes less system resources but has a nice look and such. Anyways, if I wanted to downgrade to XP, all i'd do is clean format? then just install the disks? would there be any erros since acer modded this laptop or no?

Acer :: 6920g Tuba Drivers For Windows 7

Oct 21, 2009

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.

How to make my tuba work again in windows 7?

Acer :: Installing Windows 7 On An 6920G - Drivers, Experience Etc

Jan 24, 2010

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 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.

Is there a version of the original restore image on the interwebs anywhere

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 :: 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.
dfegtersgft
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.

The only problem is that it came with Vista and keeps giving me problems. So i got out my windows xp cd and tried to reformat it. But after i select to install XP, i get a screen saying that it was unable to find a hard disc and that i might need to run a setup or diagnostic. My computer shows an ACER(C) drive and then a DATA(D) drive, but my windows xp doesn't see it

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
