Acer :: Aspire 9410z XP
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
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
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
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
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.

Note:
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.

Dell :: Screen Is Fuzzy, Not Clear Looking?
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
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
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
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?

Dell :: 1525 Cmos Change?
I have a Dell 1525, bought in April 08, about 3 months ago time started to get out of sync and multiple problems with battery "plugged in not charging."

So today after charging the battery from a friends external battery charger ( friend had same problem) I was updating the BIOS to A16 from A06 and when the laptop was restarting with the bios update I get a message saying "Time of Day Clock Stopped."

My question is if I replace the CMOS battery will this solve the problem?
Looking at dell documentation from
http://support.dell.com/support/edoc....htm#wp1179839
looks tedious and time consuming but not hard .....

HP/Compaq :: 6710b- BIOS CMOS Password
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.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 1645 Serial Flash CMOS PINS
Dell Studio XPS 1640 1645 Serial Flash CMOS PINS

The process to be used appears credibly outlined at the following web address: http://www.darkmagic.org/mike/dell-tag/dell/dell.html

But the laptop used in the above web site is not that of a Dell Studio XPS 1640 or 1645. So parts location, disassembly and reassembly are unique with the 1640 & 1645.

I have had the 'privilege' to be stonewalled by Dell 'customer service' when requesting the lost password to access CMOS & BIOS setup on my Dell Studio XPS 1640.

I purchased a used Studio XPS 1640 that was just under 2 months out of warranty from another who was disgusted with the hassles that have developed with some of the 1640s & 1645s over heat, throttling, RGB screen blinking, inadequate power supply, etc, etc. The formal transfer of ownership was immediately completed on Dell's web-site .....

Dell :: Code Error 20000212 (CMOS Failed The Pattern Test) On Studio 1555
I ran de PSA diagnostics on my Studio 1555 and I got the error 2000 - 0212 (CMOS failed the pattern test). I changed the CMOS setting to default, ran the test again, and I got the same error.

Called Dell tech support, they told me that they are going to replace my board. My original problem is that Win7 is taking more than normal to start (2 - 3 minutes to be ready).

I got an Intel C2D P8700, 4GB RAM DDR2 800MHz, ATI Radeon 4570HD 512mb, 250GB Samsung HD 5400RPM. It should start fast, since the HD has no fragments, the win reg is ok and I have not crappy services or programs at startup. Does any1 know what is this error about?

Acer :: Acer 5610-4610- ACER Disk Formatter Cannot Find Any Drives
I have an Acer 5610-4610 system. It was repartitioned to one XP drive for several years. I am finally wanting to put the PQ service partition back on it but none of the folders of the restore CD's have any of the files needed to recreate this partition. I am wanting to put the factory (VISTA Home Premium) system on C. With all the system files and folders from the 3 restore CD's into the PQSERVICE partition. I have no clue how to proceed.

I do remember there was an acer(C) partition and a data (D) partition when I got it. The PQSERVICE partition was there back then.

The first (System) CD has none of the files mbrwrdos.exe or rtmbr.bin
used to create the PQSERVICE system.

I run the ACER Disk Formatter and it cannot find any drives on the laptop.

Weird! From what I've been able to glean my thought was that that the Formatter disk would facilitate creating the correct partitions?

I tested it on my Acer 6935G and Windows 7 64bit version. It probably should work on other models and systems to.

Some of the features that Acer CineDash Config supports are:
•32bit and 64bit systems
•Configuring applications to run and captions for buttons:oArcade DeluxeoEmpowering tech.oInternetoE-Mail•Making and restoring registry backup
•Enabling media keys to work with other programs, like winamp, and restoring original key mapping file

Acer :: Acer 6930ZG With A Fresh Install Of Windows 7 RC 32bit - MapleStory Blue Screen Of Death
I have an Acer 6930ZG with a fresh install of windows 7 RC 32bit. I can play Call Of Duty 4, Counter Strike, Flatout 2 etc. with no problems! But when I try to open MapleStory a blue screen appears, and begin to make a physcial memory dump? . MapleStory is a 2D-game, and Call Of Duty requires much more.

I made a little research, and I found out that alot of people have the same problem, and they said it was caused by a conflict with a program or hardware drivers. I have tried to delete my NVIDIA driver, and install it again. No luck.

And yes, I have also tried to run MapleStory in compatibily mode

As I said: It's only in MapleStory I experience the problem, and I don't think it's ram-failure, since I have seen the same problem on a different computer, and I can play Call of Duty 4.

Here is the system log:
Problemsignatur:

Acer :: Acer 6920 - No Audio Output Device Found
I had vista installed on my laptop, Acer 6920, (first OS) and it was direct from factory so everything worked fine. I then installed ubuntu and everything still worked fine. I then deinstalled both of those to put on windows 7 RC where all my hardware was working perfectly (minus the fingerprint reader but i honestly couldnt care about that thing) so my computer eventually got pretty bogged down with crap to the point where boot was about 30 minutes. during this whole time my sound seemed to work, but near the end windows stopped finding any internal sound related hardware (the speakers and the mic). For other reasons i did a clean reformat (3 times) and reinstalled 7 Professional 32 bit and when i booted i downloaded all the drivers and everything seemed to install correctly, but when i rebooted the sound still didnt work nor did the mic. the exact error message windows is giving me is "No Audio Output Device found" however when i plug in a headset or a bluetooth adapter + headphones there is audio and it works perfectly. I really need sound to work as some programs crash if they dont detect a sound output and also for monitoring audio recordings.

I have tried installing all of Realtek's drivers. Literally all of them. None of them worked what so ever despite clean installs and deinstalls.

I now am running 64bit and ive almost given up on this problem. I bearly saved this computer and i dont wanna have to buy a new because of sucha stupid issue like this.
More info:

Under the hardware manager in windows there is no tree for sound devices. there was an unknown component which i put forceware on as i thought it was the sound device but no go.

Acer :: Unexpected Error From The Acer Arcade And It Won't Run
Was using the Acer Arcade and was informed about the latest patch by the Live Update.

I ran the install patch and during install the McAfee informed me that two of the files were trojams and had to be removed. The files were CL26934.RRA and CLDO7416.RRA, so now when I stick my blu-ray into the drive I get an unexpected error from the Acer Arcade and it won't run.

So where did the files go, and why would ACER put out a patch that conflicts with the pre-installed anti-virus?
