Acer :: Aspire 9410z XP

Oct 6, 2008

I recently downgraded to XP due to the fact that Vista is a piece of crap as everyone knows. I slipstreamed SATA and took a while to find all the drivers.... finally got everything including the Wireless working.. Alright heres were the problems start..... my computer randomly starts lagging out of no where.... crashing + BSOD.... and yeah.... When my comp is about to crash the hard drive tends to make.... abnormal noises. And when the computer starts lagging it doesnt matter how many programs I have running.

I would like to stay with XP but I will go back to Vista if I have to to fix these problems.... I dont know if im missing drivers or if the computer is being weird because its built for vista... or if something is wrong with the hard drive...

Acer :: 9410z WD Scorpio Troubles

Feb 6, 2010

I took some of your advise and grabbed a 250gb 7200 wd scorpio black hd. I am however having problems getting it to run on the Acer 9410z that it is going into. First of all, i have populated the board with the max 2 gb ram , i am looking for the T7200 / T5600 cpu and I grabbed this hd for the 7200 rpm side of things, as the drive never gets populated over about 75gb.

Well it is not only running slow, but it is also locking up randomly on large data transfers. I have only to guess that the 3.0 is causing issues with the 1.5 interface.(WD does state that there is an auto translate function built into drive) I am using windows 7 32bit, which until the hd upgrade seemed to manage ok, however wow ran slow.

Acer :: Win XP Can't Recongnize Drivers On Aspire 9410z

Oct 12, 2007

I bought an Aspire 9410z notebook a month ago. It had Vista installed on it by deafult. Now, for reasons too many to list, I didn't like vista.

I created an additional partition and run linux on it. Linux was fine but I needed something for my gaming purposes, so I replaced linux with win XP.

Now the problem is, windows xp cannot reconglize the drivers on my laptop (ethernet, wifi, videocard, orbicam, etc.)

As a result I can't connect to the Internet or do anything productive for that matter.

Tried to look for drivers I can download from the Internet, but no luck.

Acer :: TM290 Can Empty CMOS Batteries

Nov 18, 2008

i have an Acer Travelmate 290 that barely starts these days. Fan is starting properly but screen remains black. Sometimes the bootscreen appears and then the screen goes white after some seconds. I can go into BIOS or run Memtest+ for some seconds but it always gets white some time later. I removed all modular parts and exchanged RAMs already. It got worse lately. Whereas the device starts maybe one of 10 attempts and remains stable for seconds it was working for minutes weeks ago. I detached/disassembled the notebook completely already several times. I don't have any Pentium-M replacement so this is the only part i couldn't swap yet.

I measured the cmos coin cell. It holds 2.539V of 3.0V. Looks empty but CMOS values are still ok i think (date is correct if i enter BIOS). Is it possible that the CMOS cell is responsible for those false starts?

Acer :: CMOS Jumper Switch 5610Z

Mar 7, 2009

I have a grandson just older enough to be dangerous around a computer. Recently I allowed him to use my 5610Z to make some pictures of himself, etc. Later the family went home far from here. Still later I tried to start the Laptop and "enter supervisor password" would appear each time I tried to start it. I'm never used a password, don't even know how to do such a thing. Naturally I called and he "remembers nothing!"

I'm old, 75, and do not have good vision. I found in the Manual for the Model a page showing "Jumper Settings" and a diagram with the description, 'Clear CMOS Jumper.

J3 locates at the bottom side of the main board as the red circle highlighted." Fine, I found it physically but don't know how to turn it on or off. I've pulled batteries to clear CMOS before but never had to deal with a switch.

Would I be correct in using tweezers and just pulling the square object up, or try to turn it?

I miss my Acer. Two years, never a blue screen, nor freeze up. I want it back running before I kick the bucket.

Acer :: Change CMOS Battery On Aspire One AOA 110?

Mar 3, 2015

I've been losing date and time recently.  I update files, then take them home on a USB flash drive and they appear to be older than what's at home. Turns out my date and time are maintaining.  I have to reset date and time when I boot up now.  Pretty sure I need to swap out the CMOS battery (maybe a CR2032?) how to find it once the case is opened?

Dell :: Screen Is Fuzzy, Not Clear Looking?

Jan 22, 2010

I received my new dell studio about 2 weeks ago. I love it, but i think there is a problem with my screen or graphics card. when i first started up windows i saw that the screen was fuzzy looking, (like little lines running through the screen.) and i thought it wasn't a big deal, but everyday i keep thinking about it and its getting irritating.

i have a decent graphics card a 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570, but i don't know if i have to change around the settings to get rid of this fuzzy looking screen. i feel that it should look crystal clear looking.

also when i go to scroll down a page or move things around the fuzziness gets worse then when i stop moving the page or w.e it goes back regular fuzziness screen.

can someone help me out! I'm a newbie at computers and really want to solve this problem, is there some kind of setting i have to change?

Dell :: Clear PROTECTION Skins

Apr 12, 2009

I was also wondering if anyone has tried any of the Clear protection skins that are available such as Invishield or Phantom Skinz since it appears that this laptop (XPS 16) is such a fingerprint magnet and now i'm seeing from earlier posts that it is prone to minor scratches. I am tough on my lappy since I carry it with me everyday so something like this might be worth it to protect my new investment..... Let me know everyones thoughts, I just ordered my XPS 16 and would like to keep it as scratch free as possible

Dell :: 14z 900p 1600x900 Is Fuzzy And Not Clear

Aug 12, 2009

I have been using my 14z for the past week. The main problem I have with it is that the 1600x900 resolution on a 14" screen is too difficult to see for me.

I have tried to change the resolution setting by choosing the defaults and by creating custom resolutions but any resolution other than 1600x900 is fuzzy and not clear.

Is there something I'm missing? Any suggestions?

HP/Compaq :: Reformating My Dv5t To Clear The Bloatware

Jan 10, 2009

I've been thinking about buying the dv5t from HP for college.

people sometimes recommend to reformat the whole system in order to clear out all the junk "bloatware" that HP sticks in there.

Well anyway I was thinking of buying the DV5t with programs like; photoshop, Norton's anti-virus, and that lowjack thing for computers.

if I reformat the system to clear out the bloatware, would that get rid of those programs?
And if it doesn't does HP give me a CD inorder to reinstall them?

HP/Compaq :: 6710b- BIOS CMOS Password

Jan 1, 2009

I have a Compaq 6710b that was given to me for work. My friend put a password on it that requires me write in before the computer will boot in order for me to log-in to my work account. I believe that this is called a BIOS or CMOS or a boot password. My friend said that it is for extra security. I know the password and have no problems getting past this point, but I do not want to have to enter this first password to get to where I log-in onto my work account. The computer was not like this when I got it and I do not want to take it to a tech at work and explain to him what my idiot friend did. The friend does not know how to change it back so that I do not have to enter this password.

HP 15-d017d Lockups :: Reset Bios / CMOS Battery

Get a blank screen on the first reboot after disabling the secure boot following the procedure in this link: URL....

Laptop is
Product- F5Y33UA#ABA
Model - 15-d017d
(Thats all the info on the back, no product line eg... pavillion, envy, etc)
Tried a hard reset but no joy. Looking at some other posts on this forum, it seems that the next logical step would be to reset the CMOS. Trouble is I can't find any documentation to do with this laptop anywhere, so am unsure of the procedure.

HP G60 126NR :: Laptop Will Not Boot Unless CMOS Battery Removed

May 18, 2009

I have a HP G60-126NR laptop. One day, it was stone cold when I press power button. I discharged the mothboard.  I then installed a new CMOS battery . I am using the power adapter to power unit. When I press the power button , I get nothing toally dead, except to show the power connection light. If I remove the CMOS battery, then discharge the motherboard again,  then plug in , and the laptop powers up without touching power button, and goes into setup screen to enter time. After entering time , it boots into Windows without issue. Windows SFC scan shows no error. If I shut down, not sleep, the laptop is dead again unless I discharge motherboard and start from square one. Also, I want to say that while Windows is running, if I close the lid to put to sleep, you can see that the screen is still active despite changing "what happens when I close lid". My diagnostics tells me it needs a new motherboard. PS: I did flash the BIOS off of HP Website thinking it would  resolve my issue, but it did not ....

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Won't Power On After Replacing CMOS Battery

Dec 7, 2014

Recently replaced the CMOS battery ourselves after getting the 5 beeps.  Put everything back together but a couple of screws were loose and came out.  Regardless the computer booted up fine and worked for a week.  Yesterday it would not power on, at all.   Unscrewed everything, opened it up, found some loose connections and tightened up, then replaced missing screws, seemed that they were tight and not spinning in place.  Computer powered on fine.  Next day, computer powers on again.  Then, after a brief power down, it won't come on.  AGAIN.  Opened everything back up and saw the hard drive was loose so tightened that up via external screw.  Put back together and made sure all connections were tight and re-screwed.  Still will not power on.
