I have an Acer 6930 G. I had accidentally installed the French Vista (stupid me) and the store gave me the 2 backup DVDs I needed in order to install the English one (they had a previous customer with the same problem). So on the Acer screen, I pressed Alt-F10. I choose restore using user's backup and insert my DVD. Under Source Drive, I choose "Recovery1:Z" which is the name of my 1st recovery disk. Under Backup Point, I cannot choose anything and thus, I cannot hit the next button. I tried enabling F12, and putting USB CD ROM as first priority (didn't make sense but worth a try)
I've just purchased an Acer Aspire 6930. It came with an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD and a HDMI out port. The weird thing is that if I can't play HD-DVDs or BlueRay discs, then what's the point of having it? Can anyone tell me why they setup that way?
My Aspire 6930 has 320GB by using two hard drives. 142GB on drive C, 138BG on drive D, and 40GB as reserved. Are there any good by using two drives? It looks kind a stupid to me because drive D is like a giant folder in drive C. Do anyone owns the same model with one or two drives?
I would like to install Windows XP on the second hard drive of my 6930G.
And I was wondering I could use a XP OEM disc that I got from HP about 5 years ago for an NC 8000 notebook? Also do all those OEM XP discs on eBay work with any compuer? Or do I need a speciific brand of computer?
im getting ksod (black screen of death) on my 6930 which came preinstalled with vista home premium. it boots & shows the vista bootscreen & then when it is supposed to show the login screen it just shows a black screen with mouse cursor (which is movable), ctrl+alt+del doesnt work, same condition in the safe mode too. tried booting into startup recovery, it fixed a cpl of probs & said the os s'd boot fine but it still doesnt. i've googled a lot for the last cpl of days & didnt find a definitive fix for the prob. i've tried a cpl of fixes that i found but none worked. so finally i've decided to do a clean install (after i back up my docs & stuffs from C: to D: ). now i need to be sure abt a few things b4 i decide which way to go-
1. say i want to reinstall vista from the recovery disks, will that effect my D: (data partition) or just C:?
2. say i want to replace vista with xp (with sata slipstreamed), will that corrupt the recovery partition? do i need to repartition the whole drive to install xp?
3. say i installed xp & then later someday decided to install vista again from the recovery disks, will that wipe out the whole partition table to revert it back to factory settings?
i am considering an upgrade of my cpu but am not sure wich cpu to buy. Either T9600 or P9600. I know P9600 works cooler and consumes less power, but i dont actualy know how much lower it's performance is. (got my information here and some on intel's website)
My current config is: Intel Core2Duo P7350 2.0ghz Geforce 9600M GS 512mb DDR2 3gigs ddr2 ram.
I'd like to increase the gaming performance mostly, so is the cpu upgrade worth it considering the cost?
I've recently downgraded an Aspire 6930 from Vista to XP and am having difficulty getting the computer to recognize that it has a modem! If I can just get the ethernet/modem/WiFi up and working I'd be set. Does anyone have any idea where I can find the drivers I need to get this thing up and working?
Up until now, the speakers have been working fine, especially the 5.1 surround sound.
Though, after reinstalling the Realtek HD Audio driver for my 6930, the 5.1 surround sound doesn't seem to be working as well as before. Although I can still select 5.1 sound, there appears to be little difference in the audio, as now it sounds quite treble-like (no bass at all). I've reinstalled the audio driver several times, with the same result every time.
got my AS6930 from Tiger in. It does have 2nd hard drive bay as i though and has the sata connection. The problem is that there is no bracket to hold the drive in place and also the bay cover has 2 prongs that prevent a 2nd hard drive. I have tried finding the spare parts so that I can interchange and install but looks hopeless unless someone knows who I can order parts through in the states. my other option is to basically come up with my own way to secure the drive. Right now I would have to take a dremel to the 2 prongs (plastic) and sand then down just enough to where they contact the bottom of the new installed drive rather than bottom of the bay. 2nd would be find some type of material that I could use to place between the hard drive and the side of the bay to keep it from coming loose.
I just got this latop and installation of Vista was done at first bootup. The thing is, it installs a tone of junk apps too!
I removed allot of it but now it doesn't always bootup. I'll get a black screen only and I have to reboot again. I don't think I deleted any system files but there may be some conflict or something at bootup (sometimes).
Is there a way to reinstall just Vista without all that junk?
I'm looking for a new laptop (for basic use, nothing fancy) and am having trouble deciding between these two. I'm basically looking at the base models, specifically at, say, these two: this 6920 [url] and a 6930 with these stats [url]
With comparable hardware, is there much difference between the two? I like the keyboard layout on the 6920 better than the 6930 (not a fan of the number pad) but that's mostly aesthetic. Do the two differ much in any significant way? Why is the 6930 a little bit pricier?
I've just bought an Acer Aspire 6930 laptop and I want to re-tweak the whole system again like installing new windows etc etc...so should I care about the drivers? I mean sound driver will be found automaticly and I can download display driver but what about the other drivers like net,webcam, etc etc? where can I find those?
You know how with Win98 there was a floppy to startup the computer to reinstall the win98 disc.... My new laptop did not come with a start up disc... how is this done? I have no original disc... can this be ordered thru Acer or do I have to purchase a disc from Microsoft?
I have an Acer aspire 6930G home theatre system. The screen has been cracked and needs to be replaced. Can anyone help with either instruction on how to remove the screen. Any help would be much appreciated.
I have got the top and sides of the front bevel off, but I cannot see how to get the bottom off and I do not want to damage it.
I have just installed Windows 7 RC, and all the drivers work like a charm!
But I can't use the audio-touch panel, and that's a bit sad ! The other mediabuttons work just fine.
I fixed a friends Acer computer the other day, and he had the same problem, and I found out it was because he had deactivated the Empowering Technology programs. I have installed them, but everytime I try to open it, it says: Sorry! The OS is not supported!". I have tried to run the program in compatibilty mode;(
At bootup I will get a black screen after the windows loading bar (at the bottom). It will stay a black screen as long as I reboot. I need to press the power button pressed down until it reboots then I do a Regular Windows Start. I've done the safe start so it can look for disk errors too. But I still get this black screen about 60% of every boot times.
I have recently bought laptop acer aspire 6930 g with following features Processor intel core 2 duo t6400 2ghz 2mb cash Ram 4gb ddr2.
Hard disk 1000gb ( 2 hard each one 500gb) and preloaded vista home premium and nividia 9600m gt 1gb ddr2.
And i notice that my laptop take too long boot time in compare with my friend laptop Dell inspiron 1525 with 1.6 pantium dual core processor and 2gb ddr2 ram and 160 gb hard disk and windows vista ultimate..so is there something wrong with my laptop and how can i speed up boot time and do u think that i can play games like crysis and call of duty 4 and GTA 4 on it?
Just got the laptop today. Went to Windows Updates out of the box and boom, it shuts down. A LOT. I managed to get the 64 bit updates in but it keeps shutting down for the rest. System Restore doesn't seem to manner.
The bottom of the laptop is hot to the touch after 2 hours worth of idle usage spent on updating windows....
Specs Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T6400 4GB (2/2) DDR2 667 SDRAM 320GB hard drive Blu-ray Disc Drive 9600 NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS
The only changes I've made is removing some annoying bloatware, but I didn't expect problems this fast and this early.
I hope this is not a heating issue because I would hesitate to get a replacement. 6930 owners...have you had this problem before. Does it get hot a lot? I hope it doesn't explode if I try to play Left 4 Dead on it.
This model has the Intel 4500MHD and 1366*768 screen. My laptop has a cracked screen. Will a 1920*1080 replacement screen work? I'm stuck with the Intel 4500MHD, right? Even at 1366*768, it has problems playing downloaded HD movies so I know it will be a dog at 1920*1080, but I mostly use the laptop for real work.
