Acer :: 8930 How To Change Display Settings

Oct 6, 2008

I recently upgraded my laptop from the 8920g to the 8930.

My only gripe with the 8930 is that there seems to be alot more backlight leakage in this model. Not so much around the edges (a thin line along the bottom but I guess that seems to be the case with most displays) but more streaks down the middle. Quite noticable if watching a movie on it at night.

What I am trying to do is change the brightness/contrast etc.. settings. I go in to the nvidia control panel settings and can adjust the bars up/down but nothing on the display changes. I can put everything on 0% but it still looks exactly the same. I click the apply button, even try a reboot but still no joy. Is there another way to do this or is my graphic card faulty? I've only had the laptop about a week.

Also, does anyone have any recommended display settings?

Dell XPS 14Z :: How To Change The Touchpad Settings

Feb 28, 2012

Need to change the touchpad settings on my Dell XPS 14Z, running Windows Professional XP 64.

Online searches to find the touchpad settings have indicated touchpad settings could be accessed in the Control Panel under Mouse options or via an icon in the taskbar.

Unfortunately, none of these appear true. Control Panel>Mouse  does not have any touchpad tabs and there is no touchpad icon in my taskbar.

Attempts to find the user manual for this model have also proved fruitless. The link on the Dell site for the XPS 14z directs me to a user manual for a different model laptop (M1330).

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Cannot Change Settings In BIOS After Upgrade

Oct 10, 2014

I just flashed BIOS on my thinkpad yoga 20CD00B1US. I got the lates BIOS 1.18/1,09 and sice this flash, I cannot make any changes in BIOS. I can list in BIOS but cannot highlite and change any setting expect quick boot Enabled/Disabled
My even manager is reporting me this warrining: : The embedded controller (EC) returned data when none was requested. The BIOS might be trying to access the EC without synchronizing with the operating system. This data will be ignored. No further action is necessary; however, you should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS.
I do have set up supervisor password for BIOS, password on power on. When going in BIOS, I am not asked to put password in, which could be the issue.

Jul 7, 2014

I've recently bought an HP Probook430 and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and I don't seem to be able to change the display brightness, using the fn button+f9/f10 (although volume settings are changed in the same method smoothly).

Although the brightness settings don't seem to change, this bar does appear when pressing fn+f9/f10. What should I do in order to make the display brightness settings changable?

Dell ::XPS M1530 Display Change

May 13, 2009

I got dell to send me a new back cover (Blue in color) and instead of the ccfl display i had im now useing the led lcd one.

i used the metal backets that were on my ccfl display and they fit perfect on the led display. how ever when i put it back together the bezel cuts the top of the screen off and the bottom is too low.

is there a bezel espically made just for the led display or do i need to get the correct metal brackets that hold the display into the cover??

Acer :: 8930 Gaming

Mar 5, 2009

I have bought my Acer 8930 and I'm happy.... Or... I'm actually a little sad, because I thought it could run CoD5!!

I can run Call Of Duty 5 smooth in 5 minutes, but then it begins to slow down for some reason. I have tried different graphic-settings and Resouloution with no luck. I have heard in some other threads that Vista 64-bit would help?

I run with these specs:

Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit)
Intel Core Duo Processor P8600
18.4 Full HD screen
And much more . . .

In the Acer Power-Management I have set it to High Performance, and Maximum CPU and Graphics Settings. I have also set the NVIDIA graphics driver to Performance.

I have also tried to set it on balanced.

It lags most of the games that I play. (Left 4 Dead, CoD5, GRID etc.)

Acer :: Tweaking 8930

Dec 14, 2008

i bought this 8930 with p8400 core 2 duo,GF 9600M GT, 4gb ddr3.

Ran 3dMark with 1280 x XX AA 0... 5100 points?

Isn't that a bit low? I thought the points should be somewhere 5500-6500. My NVIDIA drivers are currently 180.70, maybe i should change those? What about Vista 32bit? Never had a vista before, is there something i should turn off/disable/remove in order to make my computer faster? For now i've only removed some of the useless software that came with the computer and changed the firewall McAfee to Comodo.

That battery usage was on "best performance"

Acer :: 64bit - 8930

Oct 12, 2008

I bought myself the acer 8930 which has 32 bit vista

I know vista doesn't use part of the ram but my question was, does it really make a performance change to reckon with?

Also a few friends of me told me that my processor would not be supported very well by 64bit What's up with that? They say I need a 64 bit processor although many people here on the forum seem to do a clean install on models which have the same processor as mine

Acer :: 18.4" 8930 Vs. Others

Oct 25, 2008

I am in the market for an 18.4" screen laptop. Brands I have found so far are Acer, HP, Sony, and Toshiba.

I just wanted to know if buying an 18.4" laptop from Acer is safe and reliable considering they can be cheaper than the competition. The Toshiba seems underpowered to me and resolution stinks; Sony looks promising with a great screen and design, but costs too much; HP I will never buy because of the gloss coating everywhere and feels cheap; and the Acer I haven't even seen in person yet, but looks good and gives the bang for the buck factor.

How much worth is it for me to get an Acer over a Sony? Both brands seem to have great screens from looking at other Acer and Sony models. Is Acer reliability pretty darn good?

If I can get some help here, links to all the new 8930 laptops would be killer! So far I found and, both offer good selections but offers the laptops in Blu-ray but lower screen resolution and cheaper processor. offers only in dvd-drive, high screen resolution, and better processors.

Acer :: 8930 Synaptic Tool

Jul 30, 2009

i just recently bought an acer 8930g laptop, when i log into msn the synaptic tool crashes causing the scroll on the touchpad to stop functioning, however i have uninstalled the touchpad diver and got another from manufacturs website and installed it, it still doesnt seem to solve the issue, i have done a system restore, that didnt help either.

i think its msn that causes it to crash but not 100% sure tho as i have tried to test to see what causes it to crash, i did this by loggin into msn out of 10 times about 7 of the time it crashed, so am pretty sure its msn, maybe i might be wrong and please correct if i am.

below i will paste the error that i get, i got this by going on the event viewer.

on the general tab:

Faulting application SynTPEnh.exe, version, time stamp 0x47f6c0c1, faulting module SynTPEnh.exe, version, time stamp 0x47f6c0c1, exception code 0xc0000409, fault offset 0x0002988c, process id 0x17bc, application start time 0x01ca1060bf9b1946.
