Acer :: Adjust SPD On Nanya PC2-5300 On AS1410 SU2300
Dec 15, 2009
I've loaded my memory into another computer where the SPD could be read/written (non x64 OS) and I've tried to set the SPD on the Nanya modules to 6-5-4 to 400Mhz. I also copied the config of a DDR2-800 Nanya module that exactly matches the part number of what's installed in our system, but after clicking write, I reboot and have the same memory timings..
I just purchased an AS1410 and have been researching memory modules. Amazon has one for $32, which is a 200 pin 667 Mhz stick. I bought the laptop from ebiz and they have several modules for sale but don't list exact applications. They list a DDR2-667 SODIMM 2GB/128x8 Value Notebook Memory; is this the memory that will fit my AS1410?
trying to do the undervolting mod on my 1410 SU2300, and I can't seem to find any details on the proper multiplier/voltage for RMClock. I'm using der_mali's tutorial for undervolting, and I've found that the proper multiplier is 6x (it seems that the SU2300 only has this one). For those who have a 1410 SU2300 undervolted, what settings did you use? Any extra things I should be aware of?
I have till Friday to exchange my Acer Aspire 1410 SU 3500 for the SU2300. I am seeing some people show the benchmark is much higher for the SU2300. Of course I would like to have the faster unit and better unit since I am spending $400. I dont do much gaming but I do alot of videos and work. am I better getting the Dual Core or just keeping my Single Core ?
I see where one can get the 5600mAh battery for the 1810 for $90 [url], but cannot find the smaller capacity battery anywhere.
I keep find batteries for the 15" 1410 that has a 14.8V battery, but nothing for the 11" 1410
I am still waiting for my 1410 to be shipped, but know I need an extra battery for international flight.
Does anyone have a part number or link to where one can be purchased for a reasonable price?
UPDATE 12-3-2009 ============== After receiving the as1410 I have found the following:
AS1410 ships with the battery model number: UM09e31 - 6 Cell Battery A 5600mAh Replacement Acer UM09E31 6 Cell Battery can be purchased for $90 here: [url]
AS1810 ships with battery model number: UM09e36 - 6 Cell Battery A 5600mAh Replacement Acer UM09E36 6 Cell Battery can be purchased for $85 here: [url]
I would assume these two replacement batteries are actually the same, since they have the same specifications and nearly the same cost.
Found one post that said the battery for the Acer Aspire One 751 may fit, but the bulge on the bottom would be on the back instead of middle of the battery. I am not sure if this will work or not, but the batteries have the right voltage and cost a lot less. It has a part number of um09b31 and can be found lots of place with various capacities.
I owned an Asus N10J-A1 for about a year and ended up selling it. It was a great little machine, but I didn't really think I needed a netbook any more. Plus I grew tired of issues with the stupid 1024x600 resolution and anemic Atom N270. It was a fun toy to tweak, but in reality, it wasn't practical. Nice to have a strong GPU like the 9300m GS but the other components really didn't push it to its full potential. Plus watching flash based video like Hulu and YouTube was less than ideal, manageable, but not ideal.
My biggest issues with netbooks have been the keyboard size, screen resolution, and enough CPU power for flash video (i.e. Hulu, YouTube, etc). This notebook seems to correct that. The keyboard looks close to having regular size keys, and the screen resolution is at least somewhat normal (16:9 and with compatability with 1024x768). The CPU is much more powerful than the Atom can ever want to be, and battery life isn't compromised really. I think it's better on this Acer than the N10J anyhow.
I was waiting for the ION platform, but it seems that will be a while and still contains the Atom CPU. It will have its caveats as well to work out. Since I realize it would be nice to have a smaller, lighter notebook with a longer lasting battery, I decided on the Acer AS1410. I have ordered it but haven't received it yet. The specs to me are perfect, and dimension-wise it's not much bigger than the N10J (only 0.4" longer and wider).
Here's the specs:
Acer AS1410 CPU: Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 @ 1.4GHz Chipset: Intel GS45 Screen: 11.6" 1366x768 Memory: 2GB expandable to 4GB (comes with 2 slots, and only one populated with a 2GB module - nice!) Hard Drive: 250GB 5400RPM GPU: Intel GMA 4500MHD Network: Gigabit LAN, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n Ports: 3xUSB, 1xVGA, 1xHDMI, 1xMic, 1xheadphone, 1xwebcam, 1xcard reader Battery: 6-cell No Optical Drive OS: Windows Vista Home Premium.............................
After getting my new 1410, I was interested in finding out just how much a hard drive and RAM upgrade would help. I have a 1410 SU2300 which came with 2 1GB DDR2 Dual Channel 667 Mhz 5-5-5-15 RAM modules and a 160GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue. I made a list of fairly well known benchmarks, and ran them with various configurations using upgraded RAM (2 2GB DDR2 Dual Channel 800 Mhz 6-6-6-18 Corsair) and HDD (320GB Seagate Momentus 7200.4).
For testing, I wiped the drive, installed Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, and applied all the tweaks in the 1410 thread, including installing BatteryBar, RMClock, and a few programs of my own like Office 2007 and Dropbox along with the latest drivers for every component and all of the latest MS updates. Then, I installed the following programs for benchmarking:
PCMark Vantage x64 Professional - Overall performance indicator, provides scores for various areas of computer usage. Instead of running synthetic benchmarks, it runs scripts using standard Windows programs like Media Player and Internet explorer. Accurate and popular with repeatable results; probably my favorite benchmark. PCMark Vantage x86 Professional - Same as x64 version, shown for 32 bit comparison – can only address 3.5gb of the 4.0 installed Passmark Performance Test 7 – Synthetic overall benchmark, could not be completely run due to directX issues. Not very repeatable or accurate, I personally dislike it. IOMeter – Hard drive benchmark, sends repeated IO requests and measures operations completed per second in various configurations. Reasonably repeatable, very accurate, much better at providing an overall performance indicator then synthetic sequential readwrite HDD benchmarks. Everest Ultimate – Memory, CPU, and HDD benchmarking options. Not very repeatable or reliable.
Geekbench x86 – Memory & CPU benchmark. Somewhat repeatable, fairly inaccurate.
Geekbench x64 - Same as x86 version, allows for comparison between x86x64.
Crystal Disk Mark – HDD benchmarking program using various file sizes. Results given in MBs. Very accurate and repeatable, my favorite sequential readwrite testing program. Used 9 pass 1GB file settings.
I think I remember reading that the SU2300 is better (or perhaps better bang for your buck) than the SU3500. I'm pretty sure the SU3500 is supposed to be better than the SU2700. So, does that make the SU2300 better when compared to the SU2700?
I'm haven't made up my mind on the 13.3" form factor, but the $499 price point seemed like a deal. Also, is the 13.3" eligible for Windows 7?
I bought the Acer 1410 with the single core SU3500 Core 2 Solo CPU. It looks like Acer decided to release them with the SU2300 now, which is dual core at 1.2GHz (compared with 1.4GHz of SU3500).
Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing the two, and/or if they have a solid understanding how much better it would perform compared with the SU3500? I also see that the single core AS1410 with Celeron M @ 1.3GHz sells at the same price as the dual core.
Just recieved my intel 5300 wifi card ready for the upgrade.
Upgrade physically went semi well, the 4965agn that was fitted was a devil to get out.
Seems like acer decided to get superman to tighten the two screws that hold the wifi card down. In the end the only solution was to remove the 2 pillers from the pcb(with pliers and brute force) and remove the card.
Windows xp fired up fine, no wifi connected popup. drivers were my first thought.
Checked device manager, code 10 on the device. tried new drivers, old driver sets, no progress.
Also there was a few links about the pcie 2 and pcie 1 compatiblity problems. But a pcie2 card should run at the pcie1 speeds when fitted to that slot, so that shouldnt be the problem.
Ive ordered a 2nd intel 5300, one that should be 'more' compatible..we will see. will post update on that when it arrives.
as of this point id say that the intel wifi 5300 does not play well with the acer 6920g.
Looks like Acer is moving the Acer Aspire 1410 notebook line into their netbook segment with the Aspire One 752. The 752 looks identical to the 1410 and will ship with the same Celeron processors as the current 1410 line.
There is also a new TimelineX 1830T which looks like it might be replacing the 1810s.

I have tried searching both on my laptop and online but I cannot find out how to adjust the built-in webcam settings. My webcam/camera was excellent for a while, but suddenly both pics and video quality is really bad. How this happened and I cannot figure out where to adjust the settings.
How to zoom (increase text size) on the aspire switch 10?Â Â My other computers have a settings for this,Â Also, where can I get a user's manual.Â They are requesting a number I neither can find, or can't understand where it is, or can't read even with a magnifing glass.Â
I have an Aspire 5733Z laptop. Â I just recently lost the capability to adjust the volume using the keyboard shortcut of Fn key with up or down arrow keys. Â I have uninstalled and installed the Realtek HD driver.
Basically the Fn Button, Left, Right, Up, Down buttons are all working fine. I can adjust the volume of the notebook, but I can't however adjust the brightness of the screen. There is no brightness setting in my notebook whatsoever! Am I missing the brightness driver? what is the name of the brightness driver? Or is it something else. Taking into account that I have decrease/increase brightness symbols on the left/right buttons respectively.
I just got my new Acer Aspire V14 touch (Windows 8.1) and want to connect it to my Sharp Aquos LC-32DA5U TV via HDMI. I can see the picture but cannot adjust the screen resolution to the native resolution recommended for this TV (1366x768). Funny enough this is exactly the resolution my laptop is using. Â When I force use of this resolution via show all in the display properties, then I don't get a picture but just a black screen on my TV. Â Is there any other driver etc that I need to install to make this work? It worked perfectly fine as PnP with my old Lenovo computer under Windows 7.
I have an Aspire 5733Z laptop and I love it dearly. Â I just recently lost the capability to adjust the volume using the keyboard shortcut of Fn key with up or down arrow keys. Â I have uninstalled and installed the Realtek HD driver.
I am having an issue with my Acer Aspire V5-431P-4653 running Windows 8.1, namely, I cannot adjust the screen brightness at all. It seems to arbitrarily select a brightness level upon start up and from that point I cannot change it via the Fn and directional keys or through the control panel power settings. I have owned the laptop for a year and a half and this problem began roughly a week ago.Â Â Of note, when I attempt to use the Fn and directional keys the brightness icon that pops up stays at the frozen brightness level - it does not move at all. In contrast, when I open the power settings and attempte to change the brightness from there, the brightness slider will move wherever I drag it, but the screen's brightness itself does not change. At startup the screen's brightnessÂ may be at full, minimum or somewhere in between - but regardless it will not adjust.
I recently got an acer aspire e15 for xmas and I've started to have problems with it like when i turn it on andÂ adjust the screen or simply pick it up to move it the screen will turn off like a standby but take ages coming back on and sometimes it will just simple restart the laptop....
I have seen at least one thread where someone mentioned that they had swapped out the Intel 5100 wireless card in their Z for a 5300. I have a router that can take advantage of it so I think I might want to try the same thing. I downloaded the service manual that was put up on the boards and I can handle getting to the wireless card.
I heard somewhere that it's important whether under the keyboard there are two antennas or three... Anybody knows if that's true or BS? I want to have range to take from my homes some public maybe far wireless connections... or maybe from outside...
I've spent half an hour searching and still haven't found the answer. I'm set to order a Studio XPS 16, but am stuck on the wireless card. There are two Intel 5300 cards listed, a mini and a half-mini.
The half mini says it has "MyWiFi". That's not listed on the mini card
