Acer :: ASPIRE 8930G CPU/GPU Upgrade
I have Acer Aspire 8930G: T5800 CPU @ 2.00 GHz, GeForce 9600m GS 512MB, 4GB Ram DD3, 64bit OS (Win7).
I want to upgrade my current CPU to Q9100 QAVK, and I also want to get one of these video cards: 8700m GT, Quadro FX2700m or FX3600m. (All MXM III type)
Will any of these components work with my laptop? Will I need to update my BIOS etc…?

Acer :: CPU And GPU Upgrade On Aspire 6930G
how to change the CPU (the GPU is easy) in 6930G.
This is a vague guide and quite clumsy so I have no responsibility whatsoever if you damage your laptop or you lose your data or anything bad happens to your laptop or you etc.
I have to mention though that there is another guide written by lucino but unfortunately he hasn’t finished it and there are no photos. His guide looks more appropriate and safer than mine which is a bit risky but much quicker. Here is the link. lucino's guide
I am not sure if there is an update or if he is planning to include photos and finish the guide.
You will need a cross-head screwdriver around 3.0mm (you don’t say!!!) but also a flat one
Please use some kind of protection from ESD (electrostatic discharge) like an antistatic or grounding strap or gloves. This will prevent the static sensitive components from being ruined (memory, video card, motherboard etc).
Sometimes I don’t use it but I know how to discharge myself (i.e. by touching a metallic surface) before touching the laptop........................
Acer :: Aspire 7530 Cpu/gpu Upgrade
after being let down today with a 6920g order (out of stock). The company have instead offered me a 7530 with 9300m gpu, my question guys is can I upgrade it to maybe a 9600m gs, and the same for the cpu, however i'm not 100% sure which cpu it has yet I think its a turion x2 rm?.
It also has 320hdd and a 1400x900 screen, and blue ray/ dvd/dl, does it have 2 hdd bays?
I feel like my heads about to pop after so much research over the last 6 days,
And I would love to hear your general opinions on this model too, good or bad.
There seems to be very little on goole about it, I can't find a review anywhere.

I know that this notebook is x64 so i need to upgrade my 32-bit vista. Wich is the fastest GPU that this machine will support? (Current: Core2 Duo CPU T5550 @ 1.83GHz)Can it support MXM II Graphics Card Nvidia Quadro FX 770M 512MB DDR3 or wich is the fastest gforce? (Current: nV. 8600m GS 256mb)Whats the max and fastest ram that it supports on x64? (Current: 3GB Sync DDR2 667mhz)Fastest hardrive supported! (Current: WD 5400rpm 320gb)
Acer :: Aspire 6920g CPU/GPU Heating
under normal operating conditions (having firefox, CPUID HWMonitor, Windows live messenger, and WMP open) the CPU is running at 17~30°C but the GPU runs at around 63~69°C
this isn't normal is it?
with a fan underneath blowing on the bottom of the lappy, cpu runs at 8~23°C
and gpu runs at 53~58°C
Acer :: Aspire 8930G-644G32MN Or The Aspire 8930G-584G32BN
Seeing as I pretty much made up my mind and want to buy a Acer Aspire 8930G, I hope somebody here can give me some specific advice. Maybe someone who owns one of the laptops (I hope there aren't any differences, depending on the country you live in)
I am looking at the Acer Aspire 8930G-644G32MN or the ACER Aspire 8930G-584G32BN. The first one is 300 Euro's cheaper than the last one. Besides that big difference I can't seem to find any. Did I miss some specific diffence, like do they both have Surround Sound and a BluRay drive and a full HD screen? Does any of the two support DVB-T? Do they both have a 9600 GT graphics card?
The reason why I ask is because I looked through, I don't know how many internetsites with specs and it's amazing how they all differ, obviously mainly copied and pasted from other internetsites. And I really want to get the right one and not regret my purchase after a while.
Acer :: Aspire 6930 Cpu Upgrade
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?
Acer :: Aspire 5920 Cpu Upgrade
I recently replaced the T5550 cpu in my Aspire 5920 with a T9500 (SLAYX). I bought the T9500 on E-bay as new, SLAYX, installed it and it works fine. Two different programs (CPU-Z and PC Wizard 2008 identify this processor as a T9500 (ES). The cpu had the SLAYX marking on the top. Is it possible I bought an engineering sample cleverly disguised as SLAYX?
Acer :: Aspire 1410 CPU Upgrade
I read a great review on the 1410 and decided to buy it. Been very happy with it, but discovered that it was the Celeron 743 and not the Core 2 Solo. I didn't realize that until I bought it from Newegg; just thought there was only one CPU offered.
So, my question is, can I upgrade the CPU? If so, what CPUs can I use and has anyone taken an 1410/1810 apart and posted pics or a guide?
Acer :: Aspire 5003WLMi CPU Upgrade
Two upgrade questions. I've done some homework, but I'm not definitively sure about it.
Okay, the laptop has a Turion 64 ML-32. The chipset is a SiS M760GX.
On the SiS website, it says it supports Athlon 64 CPUs.
I would like to know, is it possible to upgrade my CPU from Turion 64 to Athlon 64 safely and second, what is the most powerful CPU I could use on this laptop.
Second is the HDD.
This is what they say about HDD.
SATA & RAID functions
Provides 2 independent SATA ports, compliant with Serial ATA 1.0 Specification, and supports RAID 0, 1, and JBOD configuration.
Fastest storage support. Increasing data/file transfer rate.
Clearly it is an old chipset, but what does this mean and can I upgrade from the 60GB I have today cheaply. What do I have to look for.

Acer :: Aspire 5532 CPU Upgrade
I just purchased my first laptop, I wanted a cheap, but functional laptop, so I choose the Acer Aspire 5532. I've been building and repairing PCs for years, but I have never messed with Laptop repair other then software issues and replacing RAM. I decided to upgrade the CPU to a AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual Core TL60. I started to try and disassemble the laptop, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to do so. I've looked for tutorials for the 5532 with no luck, and I've looked at video tutorials on youtube, but they don't have any for the 5532. Can someone please give me some insight, or point me in the right direction?

Acer :: Aspire 3100 (3104Wlmi) CPU Upgrade
I own an acer aspire 3104 wlmi from 3100 series. It has a Sempron mobile CPU and i'd like to change to a Turion X2. I bought a Turion X2 TL-52 and tried to upgrade it.
With the last bios the Turion is recognized by the motherboard and the very first time started well on win xp pro. But just when windows installed "ACPI Multiprocessor driver" then it didn't reboot nevermore. With a system test software i tested the cpu. This software tested cpu1 and cpu2, but it failed only the "processor control cpu2 test".
Now i understand that maybe the motherboard doesn't have the multiprocessor support or it doesn't have it enabled. I looked for a jumper but nothing...
Also the service manual shows in the cpu compatibility list the Turion TL-52
Surely if i reinstall the sempron cpu, notebook works flawless
Acer :: Cpu Upgrade On Aspire 4315-2963
A while back I an Acer Aspire 4315-2963 from Microcenter.
Here are the specs...
I stumbled on this forum and read a few posts about how some of you put a dual core processor in it. I noticed that the Core 2 Duo T7100 was used and I had some questions.
My first question is...
The current processor is a Intel Celeron 540 with a FSB speed of 533 MHz. The ram is also 533 MHz. However, the T7100 I want to use has a 800 MHz FSB. If I use this processor, won't I get problems with the processor having a faster FSB than the ram?
My second question is...
If anyone has done this processor upgrade, can you see a difference in the battery life? Currently, with the Celeron processor, I get 1 hour 45 minutes of battery life. Will the T7100 extend the battery life?
Acer :: Aspire 7720 T7300 ~ CPU Upgrade
My aspire is as per topic title a 7720 T7300 (2.0ghz ,800mhz FSB , 4mb L2 cache)
I am running a recent Bios flash so up to 1.43 spec.
Is a CPU upgrade to a T9300...simple just a case of processor pull and new CPU refit?
Will it be of benefit or worthwhile in the firstplace?

Acer :: Aspire 5920-6864 CPU And Ram Upgrade
I also purchased the 5920 from Wal-Mart about 6 months ago. About 2 months ago my 160Gig HDD just failed on me and I had to send it to Texas to have it repaired. What I need to know is this: I just bought Assasin's Creed and my not-so brand new lappy wont play it. It loads through the intro and then fails. I realize that my CPU is 1.66Ghz and the requirements for the game is 1.9 or better. Still, I thought I might get lucky. Stupid me. So, I've been reading these forums and upgrading my CPU from my T5450( 1.6)to the T8300 (2.4). Now I also have 3GB DDR2 Ram installed and want to move to 4, so do I need to buy new ram that runs at 800mhz to reflect the changes I've made to my cpu? Or should I just take out a 1GB ram and put in a 2GB of the same kind already in it? It's the Samsung DDR SDRam 1x1 and 1x2.
Acer :: Aspire 8730G CPU Upgrade (C2D T6400)
get a 2nd hand Aspire 8730G.
Wonderful machine I might add, far superior screen saturation, contrast and colour gamut compared to the Sony, but the CPU performance difference is immdediately noticeable (almost similarly specced, the Sony had a 7200 RPM 320GB Seagate HDD, the one in the 8730G is a 320GB RPM WD Blue, and the RAM in the Sony VS 8730G is 800MHz VS 667MHz, also noticeable to me).
I plan to upgrade the RAM and HDD soon enough, no problem, but the main question lies with the CPU...
With the latest updated BIOS for the Phoenix based BigBear2 mobo on the 8730G (if the 8930 and 8730 share a similar mobo, AFAIK, the newer 8730 and 8930 all use the PM45 based chipset), I believe it should be able to support even the Core 2 Quad processors (I need this power, I do a lot of Photoshop work, compositing, video editing and 3D rendering).
My biggest fear lies in the TDP, where the Q9100 I'm eyeing has a TDP for 45W, but the Penryn based Txxx0 family of processors has a TDP of 35W.................

Acer :: Aspire 8930G
Basically, the laptop can't find any wireless networks in range, normally it finds several.
I know the wireless router / internet are fine because if I plug the Ethernet cable into the laptop from the router, the laptop goes online and likewise my old laptop will connect to the internet via wireless straight away.
On my new laptop, I've tried several ways to make it find the router but all it says is it can't find anything. I've clicked diagnosis why it can't find anything and it comes up with wireless is currently OFF and needs turning on by a button normally found on the top or side of the laptop.
I've clicked the button and it's 100% on, yet it keeps telling me it's not. The orange wireless light which normally comes on when it is connected isn't coming on either.
Any ideas? I've restarted the laptop and reset the router but nothing and I haven't changed anything, it just went off last night whilst on MSN and browsing eBay.
It's running Windows Vista and using Intel(R) Wireless Wifi Link 5100.
I've tried everything I can think off but end result is always it can't find any networks.

Acer :: Aspire 8930G - Just Get A Black Screen And Nothing Else
My problem is that when i start up my Laptop (its about a week old) i just get a black screen and nothing else. The only way of solving this problem is to take out the power lead and the battery and start it up again. I dont want to have to do this everytime i start up my laptop.
This first happened after my laptop crashed (Frozen screen bussing through speakers) there was a lot running at the time, virus updates, windows updates etc.
Acer :: Aspire 8930G Has Integrated TV Card?

The product number is: 54G32Bn
here are the specs;
Intel Centrino 2 T5800
NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS (512MB)

Acer :: Hot After Few Hours - Aspire 8930G
I have an Acer Aspire 8930G.
In the last couple of months I've noticed my laptop is getting pretty hot, well actually REALLY . Right now after turning it on for 45min and turning on a game, not a really intense game and I'm not doing anything on it yet, for 10 minutes the temperature reading is already 92 degrees Celsius for the gpu, 23 for the cpu, and 44 for the hdd.
My laptop didn't heat up before only within the last 2 months or so, even though I don't use it that often since I'm mainly on my computer now.
Acer :: CPU And GPU Temperature
Setup 6930G, T6400, 9600M GT, 4GB Ram. Temperatures for general internet use, although this does depend on the amount of graphics and flash content of the web page (Vista SP2 - Balanced Power)
CPU 54 to 58 - (T6400)
GPU 59 to 65 - (9600M GT)
Nvidia System Tools 6.05 (November Release)
CPU 58 to 62 - (T6400)
GPU 59 to 65 - (9600M GT)
Does the T6400 appear to be high? My friends P7350 reads around 30. Also Note the difference between System Tools and HWMonitor for CPU. For Windows 7 my GPU runs with a lower end on the range (Windows 7 - 9600M GT GPU = 54 to 65).
Note Also - Running the 9600M GT GPU flat out (100% usage) using Nvidia CUDA to encode HD video the 9600M GT GPU hits a maximum of 67 (according to GPU-Z 0.38, HWMonitor and Nvidia System Tools).
What do people think and what temps are you getting?
Acer :: Aspire 8930G Owner's Lounge
I found that we don't have an owner's thread for Acer's latest Gemstone Blue notebook, the 8930G! I got the laptop today and it is a beaut! I got the 6243 model with BluRay.
If anyone here has tweaked it or has some useful tips, post it here! I'm pretty novice in regards to notebooks so it would help me just as much as other members! A quick guide to what to install and uninstall would be greatly appreciated. Also appropriate drivers would be beneficial.
If I'm too new to this board to post an owner's lounge, my apologies.

Acer :: Aspire 8930G / 9650m GT Video Driver
I have bought nVidia GeForce 9650M GT 1GB DDR2 MXM II Graphics Card from ebay. Aspire 8930G is listed by the seller as one of the laptops that supports the card.
I have changed the card very carefully. My previous card was 9600m GS DDR2 512mb MXM II.
At the moment the laptop does recognize the card, however sees it as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.
Here is my GPU-Z screen shot.
And this is what it should look like after installing nVidia video driver. (So I believe)
However when I try to install nVidia drivers from the nVidia website, the setup informs me the following: "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."
Has anyone tried 9650m GT with their Acer laptops? Did it work? Does anyone have a solution in my case?
Acer :: Aspire 8930G - After It Boots It Will Go To The Recovery Straight Away
I hope to find an answer here, I have an Acer Aspire 8930G. It came with Windows Vista but I bought Windows 7. I installed it and it runs fine up to the last boot (right after the accountname and internetconnection questions) After it boots it will go to the recovery straigt away. I called Acer and the guy was a man of few words, he basically just told me it couldn't be installed unless it was a Windows 7 bought from Acer. Is this really the case that Acer is like all those horrible telecomcompanies with their customized firmwares?
Acer :: Aspire 8930G Pink Vertical Lines
last week i had 1 vertical pink line come on my screen and i dont know why because i hadnt dropped it or anything, but ever since i have been getting more and more of them until today when i turned it on and theres a big group of them.
I was wondering if i brought a new lcd for it would this fix this problem?
And also how easy are they to fit by yourself if you dont really know much about computers?
Acer :: Aspire 8930G Hardware-Assisted Virtualization
I'm running the Windows 7 RTM on my Acer. One of the main things I was excited about in this build was the Windows XP Mode, which requires the use of the Virtual PC 2007 Beta in conjunction with a specialized add-on (both are available for download here).
Well, long story short, the Virtual PC installed with no problems. The Windows XP Mode module also installed, but when it tried to run I got the following error:
"Virtual Windows XP could not be started because hardware-assisted virtualization is disabled. Please enable hardware virtualization in the BIOS settings and try again."
I got on the phone with Acer Tech Support--yes, the guys who charge money for their services--and although they tried their best, the only solution they really gave me was to update my BIOS from version 1.00 to version 1.13. To no one's surprise, that didn't help.
My processor is an Intel Quad-Core Q9000, which according to both the Intel test utility I got through Microsoft and Securable, my processor supports this function. Securable even wanted to run a deep-level check and see what was preventing it from running, but for some reason it said it couldn't function properly in a 64-bit environment, so I'm still in the dark.
In my BIOS there appear the following options at the top of the screen: Information, Security, Boot, and Exit. That's it! No Advanced tab, and no options even remotely pertaining to the processor.
Is there any way to make what I hope are simply hidden Advanced BIOS options visible?
Acer :: Aspire 8930G & HDMI No Audio
When I plug the computer into my Philips HDTV via the HDMI cable (a cable I know is perfectly good and undamaged), the video pops right up onto the TV. The edges are cut off but I know why that is.
The audio is another matter. The TV says it doesn't have any audio coming in, at all. So I check the Sound applet under Control Panel, to see what it's got to say. Under Sound, I see three devices:
Speakers - RealTek High Definition Audio (this is the computer's built-in speaker)
NVIDIA HDMI Out - NVIDIA High Definition Audio
Realtek Digital Output - Realtek High Definition Audio
The default is the speakers, and when I plug in the HDMI cable the computer automatically switches to the nVidia HDMI out. When I play something out (I've tried both Winamp and Windows Media Player), the VU meter next to the selected device bounces up and down as if there's sound playing. Yet, despite the volume being near maximum on the TV, there's no sound.
I've tried switching from the nVidia option to the RealTek option. I've tried restarting. I've tried updating the drivers to all the current versions. Nothing works. This is a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installation.
Acer :: Aspire 8930G Bios Flashing Went Wrong
I flashed the Bios (from Acer webpage vers. 1.10 to vers 1.13) on my notebook Acer Aspire 8930G - 864G64Bn. No I have a really big problem.
I can switch on my notebook and it shows the Acer empowering people screen, but stay there. Nothing happens. The only thing I can do is press F2 (is the only thing which is offered on the screen) But also there it just says please wait.... and nothing happens.
At the first time reboot after flashing I was able to enter the Bios, but since than I can´t.
So I read a lot of using a usb thumb drive or an external floppy drive.
Will this work for my notebook and should I copy just the .FD file on it?
Acer :: Aspire 8930G: How To Set Threshold Of Battery Recharge
I have read guidelines of battery maintenance. It says the best is to keep charge level of the battery at a certain level: 40% for storage, around 80% for standby. I am using same levels for my office laptop Lenovo T400. It is set via Thinkpad Power management utility and works marvelous! Hovewer I was not able to find similar settings in Acer Power management SW. Vista doesn't have that either (as it seems to me ). My main idea is to keep the battery attached and serve as a standby power backup, but minimize charge level to 40%. It is sufficient to protect against short power interruptions or roam around the house from one socket to other.
Acer :: 5920G GPU Upgrade
I recentely purchased a 9500M GS for my Acer 5920G to upgrade from my 8600M GS. Now I have read the sticky regarding what cards can go in the 5920G and the 9500M GS is listed as one of them. The problem I am having though is that when I plug the card in and boot my machine, I get no display.
Now, this is what I have tried. I have tried to get a backup of the BIOS on the 9500M GS so i can use Nibitor to identify what it is. I followed the VGA flashing guide to where it says about restoring the BIOS blind but my laptop doesnt seem to boot at all i.e. setting the first drive to USB Key does nothing as the light doesn't blink.
I have tried putting my system BIOS back from the latest version (3813) to previous ones (3811, 3805) and even the default one my laptop came with (3708). Again this was to no avail. My 9500M GS still wont boot.
So this leaves me to this conclusion. The cards BIOS must be from a different vendor, and I imagine it would be ASUS. Is there any possible way I could get this card working in my system.

Acer :: Aspire 5920g GPU
I recently bought an Aspire 5920G with geforce8600M GT 512MB and windows vista premium.
My graphics card takes more than 700 MB from the RAM memory.
I would like to know if there's a way to make it take less or even disable this option?
