Acer :: Aspire 4720z S-VideoWill It Work With Composite Adapter
Aug 31, 2008
I have an Acer Aspire 4720z notebook and decided to hook it up to my tv. So I got my 7-pin to composite adapter which came with my video card for my desktop and plugged it in to give it a shot to see if it would work and no go, it just won't detect being connected to the tv. I read the manual and searched online to see if this perticular notebook allowed for s-video to composite or if Acer made one for it themselves, again no go. So I was wondering if anyone has this notebook, or the 4710 or 4720 which I think are identical hardware wise, are able to connect one to it and actually get it working?
it uses a mobile intel 965 express graphics chipset.
I have an Acer Aspire 4720Z. Since long I had been using XP. Recently it was formatted and Windows 7 was installed. But after this upgradation, the WLAN is not working. Have banged my head with drivers and all.
Device manager is showing Microsoft Virtual Wi-Fi miniport adapter (although with XP it simply showed by the name of WLAN adapter as far as I remember). And checking it's properties it says that the device is working properly. When Intel Wi-Fi Technology is tried to get started, it says that 'A supported intel wireless network adapter not found'.
i got an acer Aspire 4720z. it came w/ vista in english.. i follow all the rules to install XP.. i do it right. but on the Device Manager still are some unknow device that i don't know how to solve that.
i install xp service pack 3. (with nLite helps)
also the wifi dosen't work (i think the device is not installed)
if it's possible to upgrade my laptop's graphics, because I'm attempting to play a few games on it, and it runs them sooo slow. I don't think the Processor or RAM are an issue, but surely the GFX card is. Another thought I had was maybe upgrading my RAM to 2 GB, which could possibly give it a boost because I think my vid card draws some memory from the system?
Did a restore with factory restore disks it doesn't install broadcom BCM94312mcg wireless drivers. when i try to install I get "windows found drivers but encountered an error code 10 have tried everything I know
I Formatted my laptop and installed windows XP (was a successful install) But my problem is....none of my hardware is installed. The WNet doesn't work, Vid Card isn't installed, nor is the Sound Card, and any other hardware that I'm forgetting that also needs to be installed (nothing is installed). I don't have the discs to install them. Can I get the installs for all these online somewhere and burn them to a disc and install on laptop?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 and my friend has a Latitude D820.
Tonight she accidentally plugged my power adapter into her laptop. A few hours later, she noticed that her laptop indicated that it wasn't plugged in, and that's when we realized that she had accidentally used my adapter instead of hers.
Now my adapter doesn't work at all. We've tried the adapter with both our laptops with different outlets with the same problem, so we know it's the adapter. The green light also doesn't come on when it's plugged in anymore.
Did plugging my adapter into her laptop somehow screw up my adapter, or could this just be a coincidence? Is there any way to fix the adapter or at least figure out what the problem is? And if I have to purchase a new adapter, do the universal ones they sell at retail electronics stores work OK? I would order one from Dell but I'm working on a project now and I don't have time to wait for it to ship.
I'm looking for an external TV-Tuner for my Macbook Pro, preferably on USB (I don't know any on FireWire 800).
The only gripe I have is that it must have Composite Video and Audio inputs, like this one: [url]
And it must work on OS X. The product above specifies only Windows, I have sent an email to the customer service on the website to see if it works on OS X, but until I receive an answer from them I thought I'd ask here.
I just bought a Acer 4720z and I connected it to my wireless router the problem I am having is that the computer keeps disconnecting from internet every few mins and then reconnect. I called acer and they are useless. The computer has Vista on it and my wireless router is a actiontec from verizon.
I did some searching and couldn't find the cause for my 4720Z's wifi card just disappearing about twice a day!
I'm still running Vista Premium but I have something deleting the Wifi adapter from Device Hardware list about, at least once per day, and not at the same time each day.
I don't know if billy is just throwing a tantrum or which software / hardware (could be Acer installed stuff for either or both!) As mr gates doesn't like other people installing anything but what he sales!
So I start out in Safe Mode, and my audio doesn't work, but my wifi card can be used and doesn't go POOF!
I flip a coin on what I'm going to live without, audio or wifi!
The 4720Z is 3mos old and has been doing the magic trick with the wifi card ever since the 2nd or 3 wk, and I don't know how to find the conflict?
The power adapter has the following specs. Input: AC100-240V Output: DC19V 3.42A Power: 65W
I purchased a Targus APA10US universal power adapter. Its specs are as follows. Input: AC100-230V Output: 15-24V -2A Power: 65W Max
My Aspire calls for a #14 tip, but that one did not come with the adapter. Can I use another Targus adapter (#3) with a different tip without doing damage to the PC? I have been told that the tip does some type of voltage regulation and adjusts to the settings of the PC.
I recently picked up a nice 1410, the 12" version. Looking around on Acer's site it appears they used this name in the past for a 14" laptop as well? Is the new 1410 the laptop people are discussing in the other threads with the Timeline?
The primary reason I ask is because I'd like to buy another AC adapter off Ebay, and it seems many that come up for the 1410 may be for the old laptop. Is there some other model or part number I should be searching for?
I bought this acer laptop about 5 months ago, it was working fine up until a couple days ago that I started to notice that it would shut down after 3-5 minutes of usage, sometimes shorter, and while plugged in, it would shut down before I could even type in my password.
I'm certain that overheating is not the problem, the tempature inside my laptop hovers around 50 and it never feels hot to the touch when it shuts down.
I just update my aspire 4745 BIOS version from 1.04 to 1.23. After that it making a big problem. If i plug in AC adapter it getting shut down. But if i turn on it without AC supply, it works perfectly. But if i try to turn on laptop after plagged AC supply, it not response anything,
My Dell Vostro 1500 is not charging while plugged in. I get the following error message- The AC power adapter type cannot be determined.
Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge. Please connect a Dell 90W AC adapter or higher for best system operation.
I have the Dell 90W adapter. On googling this problem I found out that the problem is with a circuit in the adapter that breaks and the adapter doesn't recognize
it as an original Dell. the only solution seems to be to replace the adapter. However I don't want to spend $70+ if its going to happen again in a few months. So I am thinking of buying a generic one on eBay
I Just had my Alienware m17x R4 for 2 days and the AC adapter doesn't works. Yesterday it was ok, but today it's dead. It's not passing electricity to the laptop, in fact the light in the cable is off.
What could it be? Why a new adapter of a new computer simply stops working after only two days of use?
My internet frequently disconnects from my Aspire S3-951 notebook with Athros AR5BWB225 wireless adapter. The adapter is loaded with driver version 10.0.0.227. Is there a newer driver that will prevent the frequent disconnects?
