Acer :: Aspire 8935G With Realtek Audio- Enable SPDIF

Nov 17, 2009

I have a new Aspire 8935G with Realtek audio (AL889, if I read it well) and I'm not able to use digital output.

I tried using a common stereo jack to RCA cable, using just the left (black) RCA to plug into the digital COAX input of my ampilfier, but nothing came from the speakers.

Do you know how to setup the digital output of the Aspire?

HP 2000 2b09wm OS/Software :: Delete / Reformat Hard Drive Partition(s) To Enable OS Reinstall

Aug 20, 2014

I have a HP 2000 2b09wm. It just broke, giving me the error message saying in so many words that I needed a new hard drive. Guess the old one went kaput (even though I just bought this pc on eBay not a month or two ago). I have a new HD and a Windows 8 reinstall software from a dealer on eBay. I tried multiple routes in attempting to reinstall the OS resulting in as many dead ends*.The last thing offered up was to delete partitions in the new HD. I looked at an eHow page, How to Delete Partitions on a Hard Drive. It says to get a CD that includes fdisk.com. I burned super fdisk (2 MB) from SFbootablecd.iso and fdisk (40 MB) from fd11src.iso. I went to the BIOS to configure the boot order. I put Internal CD/DVD ROM Drive first, saved it and tried both CDs. It always just boots to a screen with this:
 
Boot Device Not Found. Please install an operating system on your hard diskHard Disk (3F0)F2 System DiagnosticsFor more information, please visit: [URL] .....
 
I even tried putting USB CD/DVD ROM Drive first…same results.
 
So, my questions to you, I guess, is firstly, why are the fdisk CDs not booting? Did I burn the wrong fdisk? Secondly, do you know why my OS couldn’t be installed using the reinstall software? I’m assuming the software is legit and the computer did in fact originate with Windows 8. 
 
*A couple of the dead ends:
 
Compatibility report - The computer started using the Windows installation media. Remove the installation media and restart your computer so that Windows starts normally. Then, insert the installation media and restart the upgrade. Do not select [ICustom advanced]I to perform an upgrade. [ICustom advanced]I installs a new copy of Windows and deletes your programs and settings.
 
Another route for Windows Setup, I get to this: Select the driver to install: Browse for Folder - Browse to the driver, and then click OK.It gives you the list under "Computer" which includes "CD Drive (E HRM_CCSA_X64FRE_EN-US_DV5" (the reinstall software) and underneath that, the folders - boot - efi - sources - support.Picking just the E drive itself, message appears: Load driver: No signed device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Unable To Enable WiFi Using Function Keys - Y580

Oct 2, 2012

I have a problem, normally I press Fn and F5 to bring up the window to enable/disable Wireless Lan and Bluetooth. But it's suddenly stopped working and I cannot switch on my Wireless Lan.
 
This is on IdeaPad Y580 running Windows 7.
 
1. When I press Fn F5 no window opens.
 
2. When I press Fn F6 my track pad is enabled/disabled as normal, although I do not see the notification on screen.
 
3. When I press the Fn and volume or brightness controls, they work perfectly, but again I do not notification on screen, the bars showing level of volume or brightness.
 
4. Also the One Touch Recovery and One Key Theater buttons are not working. But the audio Mute button is working.
 
5. I have uninstalled the Lenovo Energy Management software and reinstalled it but no difference.
 
6. I have checked the BIOS and Wireless Lan is enabled.
 
7. I also saw that in Task Manager I cannot see utility.exe running.

Acer :: Laptop Refuses To Detect Hard Drive With CD Drive In

Dec 28, 2009

Laptop is an Acer Aspire 1640. 2.26GHz, 2gb RAM.

Laptop was working fine with the factory Hitachi HTS541680J9AT00 80gb drive.

I purchased a Samsung HM160HC 160gb drive as it's supposed to be the fastest PATA laptop drive available.

I put it in and the laptop just kept saying "no operating system found" with the XP disk in the drive.

I tried several optical drives and got the same issue with all of them.

I then hooked a USB optical drive up and it wouldn't boot from it.

I removed the internal optical drive and the system then booted from the USB drive and loaded Windows fine.

I just assumed it was a fluke and once Windows was done loading I removed the USB drive, installed the factory internal optical again and turned it on...

"No operating system found".

This is where I'm stuck. If I remove the optical the system boots into Windows fine. There were no issues like this with the other hard drive.

I have tried setting the hard drive as Master, Slave, and Cable Select with no change.

Laptop has the newest BIOS.

Samsung does not offer firmware updates on their hard drives.

Sony :: One Drive Raid 0 With New Z1190

Mar 11, 2010

I'm thinking of purchasing the new sony Z-1190 laptop. Some of the options have only one drive (say 128GB X 1, or 256 X 1) but still supposedly have raid 0. How is this possible (I thought that more than one drive was needed)? Would there be a performance difference between the 256X1 or the 192 (64X1 + 128X1)?

Dell :: M1730 Odd Drive Configuration RAID 0

Feb 5, 2008

This is a weird one, my new M1730 has RAID 0 2x160GB but they are different makes of hard drive:

Hard Drive Member 1: Hitachi HTS722016K9A300
Hard Drive Member 2: FUJITSU MHW2160BJ G2

If you are an M1730 owner I would be interested in what drives you have. Dell have tried to fob me off and told me all M1730 have this config.

Although it works OK I can't see that this is good practice - I would have expected matched drives.

Acer :: Initial Impression Of 8935g

Jul 23, 2009

I have just received an Acer 8935g and as there seems very little info on it I thought I would post up my initial impressions and add some photo's later.

Reasons for buying - I wanted a desktop replacement with decent sound quality and decent gaming quality so I can finally ditch my desktop. I have bought plenty of laptops in the past which have all been great for the odd LAN parties but would never replace my desktop. I am happy to say so far so good.

So first things first, Acers website is shocking and is very short of info. I spent days trying to dig up info on this model with very little success. The main thing that had been holding me back is the gfx card, in 1 sentence it says 4670 and in the next it says 4650. My main concern was that the 4650 would contain ddr2 ram.

I am pleased to confirm my model has the 4670. I went for the lower end model with P7350 as I already have a decent CPU to switch into it.

Build Quality - I have heard rumours of poor build quality and poor QA from Acer but I am happy to say my laptop is perfect, the construction seems solid and no defects to be found. It is very heavy at 4.1kgs but this is a desktop replacement for me, I wont be lugging it around on a daily basis ( I have a Dell studio 1555 for that)

Screen - The screen quality is average at best. It is far lower quality than my dell 1555 1080p screen. Although it is LED it does not have great brightness so I wont be using this outdoors. Also it is very glossy so lots of reflections. The contrast is also only average and colours look a little washed out. That being said Blurays looked good and 3dmark06 looked good, I am yet to install any games.

Keyboard - The keyboard is very good and easy to type on, it also has all the keys of a full size keyboard (so no Fn plus key for home etc). The keyboard is also backlit, I always thought backlit keyboards were a gimmick but now I have used one I would never go back, especially if like me you use your laptop in low light...........

Acer In Khi :: 8935G Backlit Keyboard

Mar 8, 2010

I've just purchased a brand new acer 8935G and I just want to say what a mistake that was so far.I received delivery last Wednesday but the windows 7 upgrade disc was missing,it took me 2 days and loads of calls and emails to get it sent out.It arrived Friday so I unpacked computer and then noticed the back lit keyboard wasn't working. Contacted retailer they said I had to contact acer technical and get a returns number before they could do anything .

So I emailed Acer on Friday and explained as I was about to load windows 7 upgrade onto the computer but on checking it out I noticed the back lit keyboard wasn't working . Got an email back Monday totally unrelated to my question stating as it was a software problem and I had to contact a premium rate number .50 p a minute yeh right

So this morning I tried and tried to get trough to the customer services technical hardware) help line finally got through at .10p a minute and what a carry on. Don,t forget this is a brand new unused 8935G just unpacked . I had to go through about 20 mins of questions with a male who I couldn't understand a word of what he was saying and he definatly couldn't understand me .

In the end I asked for the ref no and he tried & tried to get me to return it for repair he said a week at least! stuff that

So I got back on to the retailer(simplyacer.com) customer services sixth in the cue and waited & waited ,eventually got through and was told ,the returns department would call back within the next 10 mins and they would arrange collection today (11am)

At 3pm still no call ,so I emailed them twice I received a read reply , but no answer and no reply to my question . Back on the phone again and 8th in line ,so I hung up
At 4pm receive a call from the returns department,He asked what the problem was and when I told him he replied Oh I didn't realise the 8935g key board was back lit . I lost it a little I'm afraid, told him to get it sorted I want a new computer not a repaired one . Their collecting tomorrow but I'm not sure what the outcome will be . Am I being unfair on insisting on a new computer with the service I've received so far? or should I insist on a full refund and go somewhere else and buy a different model and tell them to stuff it.

Acer :: Aspire 8735G/8935G

Jan 9, 2010

I am looking for a laptop that I can use as a media centre, as well as my main computer.

It is to replace my desktop (which currently went bang) and my DVD player (seen better days). There are some obvious requirements, but I cannot seem to find definitive answers from the manufacturers (Acer told me to contact Toshiba and vice versa!) or stockists so I am not yet happy to part with my cash (at least without an option to replace or get my money back).

I am looking at an Acer Aspire 8935G / 8735G with a Blue-Ray player.

I will HDMI the laptop into my Toshiba 32 LCD (32WLT66), which has a standard widescreen display (16:9, as opposed to the film-style 2.40:1 ratio that I believe these Acers have) and has a resolution of 1366 x 768. It will display 1080i and 720p, but not 1080p.

Can somebody please answer the following questions, as well as possibly suggesting alternatives around the same budget if they will do a better job (1k)?

Generally how will the picture look on the Toshiba? Will the Acer output 1080i? Or if not what will be the best resolution possible, and will it be worthy of blu-ray?

When playing a DVD with a tv-style widescreen format (16:9) presumably the Acer itself will have bars down the sides when playing full screen (side panel format)? Is this correct? What about the Toshiba as this already has a 16:9 ratio?

Reversing the question above, when playing a film-style 2.40:1 the Acer itself will look great presumably, will the Toshiba just have the usual bars at the top and bottom and look decent?

The Acer has a line-out with S/PDIF support, which I really want as I will be lining the sound into an AV amp. My AV amp is a few years old, it processes Dolby Digital, DTS as well as the old pro-logic, but it is too old to recognise Dolby Digital Live which is supported by the Acer. Is the original DD backwards compatible with DD Live? i.e. will my amp pick up DD from the Acer?..............

Acer :: 8935G And 5935G: Gemstone Blue

Are the new models by Acer, the 8935G and the 5935G, based on the Gemstone Blue design?

Because both look very different from the 6935G, 8930G etc.

Is that a new design and Acer hasn't announced it yet?

Acer :: Aspire 8935g Using Intel And Not ATIARG

Jun 6, 2009

I finally got my Acer 8935G, and right away, wiped the hard drive clean of all the crap that comes on notebooks. In this process, I removed the "recover" partition... didn't think much of it at the time until I realized they didn't include a single CD with drivers or OS. Oh well, thats not the issue.

I loaded the computer up with the RC version of Windows 7 - and everything seems to be working great, except, the LCD is using the built in Express Intel 45 Display Chipset, and no the ATI Radeon 4670.

I have both devises listed in my Hardware Manage, and under display properties, but I am unable to set the screen to use the proper display adapter...

My other issue is - acer doesn't even have this model listed on their website as it is so new - they don't have any place to download drivers and neither does anywhere on the internet.

Acer :: 8935g Install Xp And Boot From Arcade Button

Mar 7, 2010

I've installed a second hd in my 8935g for an xp install, and got a couple of q's before I get stuck in.

1. is there way to install windows XP as a "genuine" acer oem install "like the "genuine win 7 install procedure"?

2. And is there info on ways to recreate the "acer arcade" button usage to boot win 7 and a full xp from the new disc depending on wether I press power button or media button.?

I've done some searching and found some good info, especially re ACHI slipstreaming, but haven't found anyone using the arcade button for an alternative boot method (other than to force different video card in win 7)

Acer :: What To Delete From Hard Drive

Apr 23, 2009

The laptop is now 2 months old. I deleted all the games, but there is alot left over. After years of admin work on Win2k, and nothing comparable on Vista, I need advice on what I can safely delete and what I may, sooner or later, need.

Here is a list. Let me know what I can and should not delete. I know I have a factory default in a hidden partition. And note that once I delete something, further backups will be made without that software.

1) Welcome Center (Would be nice to get rid of for all users. But I am the only user on this system for the foreseeable future)

2) Windows Media Center - I may back up an audio CD or convert audio to WMA, I may make a back up of my DVDs, but I don't play CD's or DVDs.

3) Windows Photo Gallery. This is actually nice software, but the camera comes with its own, and I play any video CDs in my DVD player.

4) Extras and Upgrades - Anytime Upgrade, Marketplace, Windows Web Site. Beyond purchasing software, why would I use this?

5) Windows DVD maker - Does the Acer backup software use this? I'm still very happy with Nero, and this doesn't seem easy to use.

6) Windows Movie Maker - I don't have a video camera to make movies with, and no inclination to make any at all. I suffered through my father's home movies. - Never again.

7) Live Messenger Download. - I'm not an online chatterer. What else would I need this for? IS this needed by Live Meeting?

8) Windows Meeting Space - I would use this very rarely if at all, and certainly not in the foreseeable future. Live meeting would NOT need this as I understand.

9) Windows Sidebar - From what I read about it, it doesn't seem needed. Aren't shortcuts the same?

10) Table PC - This isn't a tablet PC. But I like the fact that the right side of the touch-pad acts as a scrolling device. Is Tablet PC needed for that?

Acer :: Hard Drive Clicking

Sep 4, 2009

hard drive makes a VERY loud clicking sound every 4-10 minutes no matter what I do. I've contacted Acer and they told me it would take 10-14 days plus shipping both ways (which I would have to pay for) to fix it under warranty.

I've tried looking up any sort of Free Fall technologies, whatever they might be named.

What I found out is that I have a Seagate Momentus HDD inside my machine. Is there anything I can do about the hard drive myself (i.e. disabling the Free Fall) or do I just send it in?

Now that I've explained the problem, I'll explain why I'm not willing to send it in.
I am a full-time college student (18 credit hours!) so needless to say, I NEED this laptop! Which is why I am very hesitant to part with it.

It hasn't been out of the house in the 6 weeks I've had it. It's been on a desk. (I've checked the desk for level, and it checks out A-OK).

Acer :: 6930 2nd Hard Drive

Jun 16, 2009

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.
