Acer :: Aspire 4937G Mp3 Lag When Surfing Net

Jun 15, 2009

jus brought this for 2 weeks. clean install wit Win XP Pro SP3. but than wat makes me frustrated is tat when i use windows media player 11 to play mp3, as well as surfing net. somehow the song jus lag, but did not pause.

at first i thought is windows media player issue, so reinstall it, but stil the same. i than reinstall sound driver(Realtek), but doesnt help too. so went on to try other player, like winamp, media player classic. but didnt help too.

went on to power options to adjust to "Always On" which the speed n voltage wil be fix at max. it improve a bit only. however this only works on my previous laptop(Aspire 5584), but did not works on 4937G, when i observe it wit CPU-Z, Everest. the multiplier stil adjust either 6x or 10x. voltage also too..

i also did all the windows update, tweaks as well.

btw the processor n chipset using is T9550(2.66GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 6MB L2 Cache), Intel Cantiga PM45 Express chipset.

Acer :: Copper Mod On Aspire 4937G (NVIDIA G105M)

May 7, 2010

i believe many of u experience gpu reaching near 100 degrees when gaming, causing laptop to jus turn off by itself.

a gd news here..copper shim solve the problem, which means it lower down temp to prevent tat from happening.

received copper shim in my mailbox yesterday.

thickness is 0.044", 1.11mm, 0.1cm

size is 0.75", 19.05mm, 1.9cm (kind of too big for gpu, becos the seller hav tat size for tat thickness, but nvm, look below)

wat i do next is to use a sand paper(fine one, not rough one), i use 1000cw since i had tat at home. lazy to go out to get more fine one.

do it on a flat surface, sand until like mirror effect.

now proceed to dismantle the whole laptop.

it seems tat the heatsink is too small for tat copper shim, but no need to worry, the surrounding alum is a little lower than tat copper.

using Arctic Cooling MX-2. apply on both cpu, gpu, n on copper shim after placing over gpu.

Stress test results

*Ambient Temperature: 32 degrees

Before copper mod, wit default thermal pad. i immediately stop the test b4 it blackout.

After thermal pad was replaced by Copper Shim.
temperature was still steady at 88 degrees after 11mins!

Dell :: Studio 1745Can't Adjust Brightness

Nov 24, 2009

For some reason the brightness on my lcd isn't adjustable. It's stuck at full brightness, on battery, on power, doesn't matter. I've had this laptop for about 2 weeks now. When I first got it, the brightness levels were working, but now they are not. OS is Windows 7 Home.

FN - Brightness Down brings up a on screen display showing the brightness level at full and goes down by about 1, though I see no different in the brightness. It doesn't matter how many times I press the button, it never goes down more than 1.

Control Panel -> Display -> Adjust Brightness -> Power Options: The slider at the bottom shows the brightness level at lowest setting. The FN - Brightness adjustment will move this slider up / down on the scale, but there is no change in the screen brightness.

Anyone have any ideas as to why I can not adjust the brightness and how I can get it back to where I can adjust it?

it's that friggin electric sound when you adjust your screen's brightness. Not that the sound is loud or anything but it's so annoying. Even clean install of mac os didn't help.

And it's not the hard drive that's making the noise. It seems to be coming from top left corner. Blackbook is half a year old and it started to emit that friggin noise a month ago. So did anyone had the same or having the same problem and did anyone removed this god dammed irritating sound !

Dell XPS 15 :: Can't Adjust Screen Brightness Using Either Function Key Or In Control Panel

I can't adjust screen brightness using either function key or in control panel.  Using the function key the little panel of brightness volume shows up on the screen but does nothing.  And in control panel, through either the bottom brightness scroll or the power option won't change anything. Only time when the brightness will change is I unplug the power, but in the power settings it won't let me change/adjust the brightness.

And what is the battery function key for? I press it and it does nothing.  XPS L521x

I've checked all drivers, tried uninstalling and reinstalling lenovo energy management, and I've still got nothing. I've stopped short of a factory reset because that's super annoying having set everything up and then a couple weeks after purchase have to do it again.

Sony :: Vaio Z11MNB: Brightness Adjust Doesn't Work In SPEED Mode

Mar 12, 2010

I've just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on my Vaio Z11MNB. As Google told me there is a problem with the FN + F5/F6 brightness adjust in speed mode.

All Sony software ist installed correctly and in the newest version I found.

As in many threads mentioned I followed the right order. But I still cannot adjust the brightness in speed mode

This thread Problem with Vaio Z Windows 7 brightness lead me to the right graphic drivers I thougt... Okay these drivers[url] are for the ZD790 but this shouldn't matter it's the same 9300GS chipset...

The following sony software is installed:
SETTING_UTILITY_SERIES_5.1_5.1.0.11200
SFEP_DRIVER_SONY_8.0_10Q1_O_7_8.0.1.1
SPIC_DRIVER_8.0_09Q3_7_8.0.1.1
SONY_SHARED_LIBRARY_5.5_5.5.0.10160
VAIO_CONTROL_CENTER_4.1_4.1.0.10160
VAIO_EVENT_SERVICE_5.1FH_5.1.0.12010
VAIO_POWER_MANAGEMENT_5.0_5.0.0.11300
VAIO_SMART_NETWORK_3.1_3.1.0.11250

Another smaller problem: From time to time there is a yellow exclamation mark at the SD-Hostcontroller in the device manager. I've googled a lot but there seems to be no other driver than the windows included. VEN_1180&DEV_0822

Acer :: Aspire 9301- How High Do You Run The Brightness

Just interested how high you all set the brightness and whether anyone that has had invertor or tube failure was a "high brightness user".

So a quick poll, how high do you have the brightness turned up, is it quarter, half, full etc or expressed perhaps 5 out 15, 8 out of 15 etc.

I run 3 out 15 on the brightness, no display problems 3 years old Aspire 9301

Acer :: Aspire 1410 / 1810T Fn + Brightness Key, Recognize The Problem

Sep 29, 2009

I know that the Fn + Brightness key issue on XP has been mentioned in other 1410/1810T threads, but I thought it might be nice to start a thread specific to the problem. After it's fixed we can add it with the other stickies.

I recently installed XP on a coworkers 1810T and because i'm interested in the machine myself i wanted to investigate the brightness issue and see if Acer is working on a fix, or even recognizes the problem.

My correspondence with Acer has been extremely frustrating and disappointing. I was considering using the 1810T laptops to replace our office's aging Lenovos but Acer's lack of support has made me majorly turned me off to that idea.

Here's my discussion with Acer, reverse chronological order (start at the bottom):............................................

Acer :: Brightness Control

Oct 30, 2009

I don't know what has happened or if someone changed something but every single time I change the brightness control to 100% 2 seconds later it goes back to 0%. This is even when it is plugged in or has a full batter.

Even when i switch to that has brightness set to like 80% nothing happens. I went to maxium preformace profile and for some reason it is set to 0% when I change it to 100% and hit apply 2 seconds later it changes back to 0%.

Out side of windows(ie the login screen) I can change my brightness to 100% and it will stay there it's when I login it reverts to 0%.

I have the acer aspire 5100 laptop. Is there anyway someone could have changed something that makes this happen?

Acer :: Brightness - With Timeline 4810TZ

May 14, 2010

When I unplug (go to battery power), the green battery-light-led goes on and overrides the brightness-settings I do with Windows 7. This means whenever I plug-in or plug-out the brigthness gets reset to some value that Acer thinks is 'right' for me. I would like to decide myself what is right for me, but can't find out how.

What makes it worse is that at first it works like:

Unplugged: 30% brightness
Plugged-in: 40% brightness

Which is reasonable. However, after pluggin-in/out a few times, it goes all screwy. For example: unplugged becomes 50%, plugged-in becomes 10%, or some other seemingly random non-sense-making values. So, I would like to get rid of this.

Pressing the green led when it's on makes it go off and seems to give brightness-control back to windows-settings. However, as soon as pluggin-in and plugging-out again, the green led comes on again. Argh.

I read some other threads about similar issues, but people would always have Acer ePower Management or something installed. I do not. This happens on a fresh clean install of Windows 7. Bios is up-to-date. Happens in every power mode (saver/balanced/performance).................

Acer :: Timeline Screen Brightness Goes Up And Down

Aug 8, 2009

i just installed Win 7 RC 64bit.

now, after every drivers/applications installed, i notice screen brightness goes up and down by itself, (it dims then goes back to bright).

This only happens when Power Saver button is pressed (lit green).
It did not do this with Win 7 32bit.

i assume, it is power saving feature interfering with win 7's power scheme.
Kinda cool.. but just wanted to know anyone else is having this *cool* trick..

I bought a 3810TZ with SU2700, but I have noticed that when on battery power and brightness set to low, the brightness of the screen would change automatically by itself according to the background. for example, the screen would darken if you have something dark open on the screen, and the screen would become brighter if you have a web page that's mainly white. Is this a feature in windows vista, or is the LCD screen defective?

Acer :: 3810t When On Battery Power, It Seems To Fluctuate In Brightness ..

Sep 9, 2009

I am running Windows 7 RC1 on the 3810t, and have been experiencing some weird issues.

I am hoping that someone in the NotebookReview community has already struggled with these problems and can help me resolve them.

The first issue concerns the laptop screen. When on battery power, it seems to fluctuate in brightness and contrast without my express permission. I have looked around in video card and power settings, as I thought that maybe this was a "feature" to save battery power or something, but have been unable to find anything.

Secondly, the computer sometimes goes to sleep long before the time delay for inactivity has passed. The last straw came yesterday, when I continually struggled with waking my compy up, and then having it go to sleep three or four seconds later, over and over again. I won when i yanked the battery out. Except that I wanted to use the computer, so I guess the computer won...

Anyways, I think that this machine is great. The battery life is amazing, and it runs quickly and smoothly (I have the 3810t-6775 with an SSD --the performance of the SSD is incredible). Hopefully someone can help me with these minor (read: major) issues so that I can transcend into computing bliss.

Acer :: Missing Brightness Icon / Launch Manager

Mar 12, 2010

I bought my Acer 3810TG a month ago with Vista pre-installed and recently upgraded to Windows 7. The only problem now is that the brightness icon has disappeared (when I press Fn+left/right arrows), every other icon is working fine though.

Anyway when I looked in the Launch Manager folder, there's a folder called OSDRC with pictures of the icons, where I noticed the brightness icons were missing.

I've tried reinstalling Vista, sent it back to Acer, installing the newest/previous versions of Acer Launch Manager but neither helped.

Is it possible that someone whose brightness icons are working can upload them here or have another solution to get them back?
