Acer :: Aspire 5735-6694


These were not answered by Acer tech soupport [not a typo or misspelling]. Each was sent in as a separate question and returned marked "closed".

Where are the drivers for Vista-to-Win 7 upgrade?

What is the recommended procedure for 1?

Should the C/D partition be preserved after upgrade?

If 3 is "yes", which backup program should be used thereafter: Acer, MS, or both?

What is the matrix key for the 2 LEDs on the left top edge (see pic)?

(this should be 6.) Can the card reader be upgraded to read SDHC memory cards?
(this should be 7.) Where is the Acer knowledge base reference library for this notebook?
(this should be 8.) Where is the Acer-sponsored user forum for Acer computers?

Acer :: Aspire 5735-4624 Drivers
i just got this notebook listed on the title right? Mostly everything works perfectly.

Except apparently i have to update my Drivers for the Intel(R) GMA Driver for Mobile. So i look at the Intel website no drivers found, or ones that needed updates..

So Ive been told that in some cases for laptops you must go to the computer manufacturers website and find the drivers there, this website being Acer. But it seems there is no trace for Aspire 5735-4624 Drivers ANYWHERE. I think the laptop is fairly new but there has to be SOME drivers somewhere right? I am not sure if this is a problem for any other people out there, or i am just not looking hard enough?

Acer :: Does The Aspire 5735-733G32Mn Have A 3gb Limit
I've recently posted a question here Total Memory in task manager incorrect after upgrade to 4gb Aspire 5735 where I received some great help. However I've done a bit more research and I'm starting to fear my notebook may be limited to 3gb by the bios/chipset for some reason. I have just upgraded it from 3gb to 4gb. The bios shows 4gb as the installed amount but memtest in dos mode only shows 3000mb total as does windows task manager.

So it appears the notebook detects the 4gb installed ram but only allocated 3gb.

My question is does anyone know if acer has limited this notebook to 3gb total and if there are any suggestions on getting around this limit?

Acer :: Aspire 5735 - Mystery Screen Pixelation
I have just bought an Aspire 5735 a few weeks ago and, to be fair, it's fantastic for the money; however, i've noticed that in spite of the screen being sharp it appears slightly grainy when i physically scan across the screen with my eyes?!! I have checked this against my 7 year old Sony Vaio but it doesn't have the same problem, it's a mystery...

I was kind of wondering if because the pixels where so closely produced (it is quite a compact 15.4" widescreen display) that it was a trick of the mind? The grainy effect is symetrical like a chequerboard pattern or herringbone!

If i stare at the screen without any physical movement the picture/graphics are pin sharp, it's only if I alter my viewing angle or scan the screen quickly with my peepers; maybe my brain just isn't sharp enough any more to de-code the data!

My exact model details are:- Aspire 5735, 4gb ram, 6400 intel core2duo, vista premium home edition.

Acer :: Total Memory In Task Manager Incorrect After Upgrade To 4gb Aspire 5735
I just updated my Acer Aspire 5735 notebook from 3gb DDR2 to 4gb DDR2. The bios now detects 4gb total as does Vista's System Page (Control Panel/System in Ultimate 64bit)

However when i go to task manager/performance my total physical memory shows up as 3000MB and the Physical Memory Usage graph seems to reflect this 3gb total.

Is there something I need to do to get vista to detect and utilise the 4gb total?

Acer :: 5735 Internet
I have an Acer 5735 laptop that I have used to access the internet wirelessly in the past on other networks without issue. I recently bought a TRENDnet TEW-637AP and plugged it into the back of my wireless router. I am getting a good signal and I am connecting to the network according to Vista but I cannot get it to load a web page to save my life. This hasn't been an issue in the past on other networks.

Acer :: Which To Go For 5738 Or 5735
I was about to purchase a 5735 before the 5738 came out. Acer call it to be a new laptop but the specs are identical, I've checked the acer site and its all the same other than the bio-security. Can anyone else explain the differences? Is the 5738 a better chassis etc because I can't tell why the 5738 is more expensive other than blu-ray etc, which my model won't have.

Both are Centrino 2 laptops as well.

Should I just go with the 5735. Anyone have any good experiences of using the 5735 laptop? Strong, quick and reliable?

I've got an offer to buy a 5738 with a 250HD for 419 and a 5735 with a 500HD for 440.

Other than the hard drive and the fact that the 5738 is newer, which would you go for?

Acer :: Just Bought An 5735-4624 And Want To Put XP On It
I just bought a new Acer 5735-4624 aspire model. It comes with Vista and of course I'm looking to move back to Xp. Only thing is I cant find any support drivers anywhere. Even on the Acer site--the friggin model is not even listed. I know it's new and all---but!

I have an e-mail in to Acer support but I already know about their famous support woes.

Anyone have an idea so I can move to little ol' XP?

Any drivers perhaps from other models that might be compatiable?

Acer :: 5735-4774 Recovery Disk
One of the OEM memory modules took a hike, so I replaced both modules with a Corsair 2x2gb DDR2 800MHz kit.

Did the Alt-F10 and got Vista back.

While deleting all the bloat-ware I was prompted to make the Recovery Disk.

I went ahead and made the Recovery Disk after deleting all the game stuff.

After all that business I went ahead and finished deleting the NTI back up 5 and a couple other things.

Now I am in the process of installing the downloaded .exe SP2 for Vista and will jump online and do some other Microsoft updates (Defender, Explorer 8) the usual stuff.

Can I make another set of restore disk that will have all the updates and all that buiness? Or is the restore disk option just for when you first start using the system?

Acer :: The Aspire Or The Aspire Timeline
I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.

The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?

Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:

Aspire A5538-1096
[url]

Aspire Timeline 5810-4784
[url]

My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?

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 :: HDD - With Aspire 5315
I got a problem with my Acer Aspire 5315. The HDD is shown in the bios but won't show in Vista most of the time. The HDD is completely formated, including the Acer partition. So recovery is not an option.

The problem is strange because it is not consistent. Sometimes I am able to acces the drive and install Vista. But then the next day,when i try to boot again, i only see a cursor after the Acer boot screen.

I've tried running in IDE mode. I also tried replacing the HDD with a new one. I installed vista with the correct Intel driver.

I also tried running Linux live cd. It also sees the HDD drive correctly but when i try to acces it, the program freeses.

I'm affraid something is wrong with the I/O controller, or it is a loose cable.
If you think otherwise, please let me know. If not, i'd like to know how I can check the HDD cable.

Acer :: Aspire Not Recognizing Ram
ive got a slight problem with my laptop. 2-3 months ago i added an addition gig of ram to my acer aspire 3050 for a total of 1.5gbs. it was the correct type of ram(i made sure it was the same as what was already in there). for some reason the computer will recognize that the ram has been placed in the slot but it does use it at all. when i am running programs will it will still draw what's needed from the hard drive even though peak usage rarely surpassed 700mb of ram. was there something i was supposed to activate/adjust after installing the ram?

and another disconcerting thing is that since i installed the ram the fan is on fullblast 100% of the time and the machine heats up almost to the point of overheating really fast even when doing basic things like surfing the web

Acer :: RAM On Aspire 5601
I recently purchased additional RAM to upgrade my Acer Aspire 5601. According to Acer website, crucial.com and other places I searched, my model can be upgraded to 4GB of RAM (2 per slot). Inserted the new RAM and booted up and it just hung at the splash screen. The RAM I purchased was PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) and I had understood that my system would still accept it and make the adjustment accordingly. I tried several different things:

- I removed one RAM chip and system boots up and Windows recognizes 2GB (tried the other chip too so I know both are working)

- Thinking the type of RAM was an issue I took 4GB of DDR2-533 from another laptop and tried with no luck.

Acer :: Aspire 1501LMi
I have an Acer Aspire 1501LMi laptop. I recently purchased 2gb ram for it (2x1gb sticks) through crucial UK, using their tool to help determine the ram that you need.

For some reason, I have been unable to use both sticks together though? It appeared to crash windows on boot up, and thinking there may be some sort of weird configuration with windows which is causing this, I have attempted to reinstall but have found it crashes during the install too. (I am running windows XP Pro with SP3). Strangely though, it DOES work fine if I use either of the 1gb sticks along with a 512mb stick of ram? Plus each Ram stick has been tested individually and found to be functioning correctly!

I have contacted Crucial about this, and they have also replaced both of the sticks of ram. Unfortunately, the same thing continues to happens?

My Acer bios version is 1.06. My Phoenix Bios version is "PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.0", however, going onto Phoenix's website, the newest version is "PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.1". Whilst on the Phoenix website, I noticed that they link to a website offering an update service called eSupport.com. I ran there tool, and it suggested i can get the newer PhoenixBios version for my laptop but you have to pay for it? Acers website only has my current version 1.06 of the acer 1500 bios.

Does anyone have any experience of this problem, or does anyone have any experience of running PhoenixBios 4.0 release 6.1 on an Aspire 1501LMi laptop?

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Fps
I've got the acer aspire 6920G, and when i play world of warcraft my fps drops to 7 in 25man raids. I play with really low options.

I've always had low fps, i tried installing windows Xp, vista and now windows 7 and nothing helps.

Now i must say, win7 had the best result. My fps increased in major cities, but in raids it's still the same thing.

I defragged my HD, I use a 64bit to use my full ram, I run no background programs, all options are on low, and i still get 7fps.

Acer :: Aspire USB And Freeze
The USB ports on my 8735G are messed. Everything with my system is fine until I plug something into the USB. After about 30 seconds, the whole computer freezes without any hope of recovery. Only a hard restart fixes it. This happens with mice, USB drives, UDB keys, anything. I tried disabling the power management on USB (selective suspend) and it doesn't help. I've googled the crap outta this and I've tried all the possible fixes and solutions and suggestions I've found. I know the ports or hub are not defective as they will transfer data in small amounts before freezing. However, it will freeze right away (before 30 seconds) if I attempt to transfer anything bigger than 300 MB.

Acer :: Aspire 8920
I am fairly certain I will be getting the Acer Aspire 8920 once I can sell my old laptop (14") for a fairly decent price.

But I am struggling of which version of 8920 I should get. Two caught my attention though...

1) Price: $1649: 2.5GHz CPU; 4 GB memory; 320GB; Nvidia 9500M GS

2) Price: $1170: 2.0GHz CPU; 4 GB memory; 320GB; Radeon HD 3650

As far as I am concerned; the two graphic cards are not hugely different in performance. Is that $480 difference solely for CPU worth it?

I am not a huge gamer, but I do play some games occasionally and don't mind being blown away by the photo-realistic graphics in the future.

So the thing is, with the 2.5GHz, I may be able to swap with a much better graphics card and able able to play games with awesome graphic a few years down the road; whereas, with only 2.0GHz CPU, you can't really do much.

Acer :: Aspire 5720z4gb Ram
I am having a problem with my laptop ram install.

I am running Vista (32bit), with 1.42 bios, was on the factory installed 512mb ram sticks. I have installed 2 x 2gb Kingston sticks from a kta-mb667k2/4g kit. But the issue is that I only see 2gb active on my system. And when I remove one module, I only see 1gb even though there is a 2gb stick in place. So with both modules installed I ran CPU-Z and it tells me that in each slot there is only 1gb in each slot - see screenshot.

CPU-Z also says:

Acer :: New Aspire 6930G
So far I think its a great notebook for the price. I have'nt ran into any serious issues.

1. Sound - When playing music the sound is ok, However with Bluray or DVDs the sound is very low, even on 100% volume level. I tested the Bluray disc that came with it and the DVD to Twister, and in a quiet room its too low to capture all the details of the sound.
Agian music (ie.MP3s) sound fine, but movies are very low. I tried enabling the Dolby Pro IIx but that didn't help.

2. Webcam - How exactly do I turn it on/off. I found the crystal eye software that works with it automatically turning the camera on, but it has no options to do anything with it. No record button or anything.
I read that Windows Movie Maker can be used, but it does not detect the camera at all.

3. Acer Arcade Deluxe. - The album art of the music that I add does show up. I have them embedded in the idtags, They show up in Vista Media Center however.

4. This is probably more of a Vista issue, but I noticed the hard drive is constanly being access most of the time, and I can't figure out why.
I googled and learned about potential culprits like Superfetch, and Search Indexing, Auto defraging, and Malware Scanners. And after disabling all of that the drive still read/writes like crazy when its idle. In Task Manager, I've discover that a file lsass.exe and svchost.exe are the primary culprits, but I don't know if and how I should disable them.

Acer :: Aspire One 110 Recovery
I have recently got an Acer Aspire One 110 Windows XP Version with 1GB ram for my girlfriend as an xmas present. Anyway while I was setting everything up for her i.e. firefox & msn etc. I spotted in the programs that there was nothing to do with Acer at all i.e. erecovery management, and the only thing was the Acer PDF manual. I then proceeded to look in disk management (right click my computer > manage) and to my shock there was no PQSERVICE or any sort of a recovery partition! The only partition was the main Windows partition! I thought maybe it was because the SSD hard disk is only 8GB. I decided to take a look at the 2 disk that I got supplied as I thought that these were the only possibe way to restore if you had an external disk drive. The 2 disk were labeled System CD & Windows XP Home Edition SP3, The System CD disk was 500MB in size and the Windows one was 2.54GB! That must be the recovery DVD then.

I decided to try and boot into the disks on my other laptop and the SystemCD disk did load up and it loaded the eRecovery program but the option to recovery was greyed out (fair enough as it was a different laptop) I then decided to boot the 2.54GB Windows disk and the laptop would not recognise it at all! I decided to look at the contents of the 2.54GB Windows disk manually through windows and all that it has it about 20 .SWM files and some other files but the only application I could see was a program called "ImageX" I then manually looked at the contents of the SystemCD disk and there was only various folders and files but no clickable applications. I am now a bit confused by these 2 disks, how am I supposed to do a full restore the aspire one now incase anything goes wrong?? Could anyone help me out with how am I supposed to these 2 disk or am I supposed to create another recovery disk using these 2 original disks? Or will these 2 disk boot up fine using an external disk drive with the aspire one?

I got a screenshot where you can see the drops.

What causes this problem?? Is it the because my CPU is overheating? (in the picture is quite stable).

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.

My problem is that every time I reboot the output displays on the laptop lcd and I have to switch manually to the external with the fn key-f5. This doesn't happen if I use the d-sub connector but obviously I want to connect using the DVI. In the bios there is a setting for either auto or both for boot up display but it only seems to apply to the d-sub connector.

Acer :: Aspire 6920Ginternet
I've been at university for 3/4 of a year now, so I know this isnt the fault of the uni's routers. My friends are also able to play internet games with ease.

However, I believe I made a stupid mistake and may have accidently deleted an important file enabling me to connect to the internet. I now have to connect to the internet on my laptop by going to:

control panel > network & internet > internet options > connections > LAN settings and then enable a proxy server in order to make the internet connect at all.

Ofcourse, this now means I cant access particular things such as itunes online, lan games with my friends on campus and connecting to applications such as Valve's "Steam" online features.

Im not sure why this has suddenly happened. I don't know what I've deleted but I know its probably something important. Or maybe it just happened randomly,

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...

I have a Aspire 8920 and I run World of Warcraft and I had terrible problems with low fps, when I check my cpu monitor thing in windows side bar when the low fps happens I see that its maxed at 100% so I had sent my machine back to Acer to be repaired and they have aparently replaced the graphix card.

I have the machine back now and Im still having major issues trying to run WoW, the only way I get a steadyish frame rate is if I have to have all settings down to min which obviously makes the game play a little naff. With any increase in setting raiding is an inpossibility, its just unplayable.

Is this machine of capable spec to be able to run it effienciently or should I get a big hammer and smash it to bits? or is there more of a underlying problem that acer may not of picked up on at the time? or is there something that I can do to enhance it performance.

My partner plays SIMS3 and even with that installed on here its really jumpy.

Acer :: Aspire 5672 + Win 7
This is just my attempt to put Windows 7 on my Aspire 5672.

I know its an older model now, heck it came out in 2006 before even Vista. So I've kept it on Win XP for quite a while, hoping Vista drivers would be worked on. Now that I'm cleaning out all the junk, I figure might as well reformat. Sadly Acer doesn't provide Vista drivers for this model.

Might as well try Windows 7 RC and try finally moving to 64-bit.

Windows 7 installs smoothly, no fuss. Getting drivers is now the issue.

If I can get the minimal devices to work with the same usage as I had under XP, I'll stick with Win 7.

- Video: this uses the Mobility Radeon x1600. Sadly ATI deliberately does not support it through their Catalyst drivers. So have to use the Mobility Modder.
Sadly it doesn't seem to work for the latest Catalyst versions

Ultimately I went with DNA-ATI drivers which are pre-modded.
9.4 removes support for everything but their HD 2000 and higher series.
9.3 causes a WDM crash
9.2 seems to work okay

One thing now is that the driver is unsigned and won't load. Using the Driver Signature Override tool doesn't seem to work, nor the test mode bcdedit switch...........

Acer :: How Do You ID And Get Rid Of Bloatware On The Aspire
It was easy to get rid of the Acer games--most of those are trial versions anyway.

But what about these?

Acer Arcade Deluxe - Acer games have been deleted, keep the arcade for videos, music, pictures, or let WMP, Media Center handle these?

MS Office - trialware At some point I may buy MS Office. Do I need these as placeholders?
Activation Assistant
Excel 2007
One Note 2007
PowerPoint 2007
Word 2007 - haven't used, but have some old Word docs may need to open. M$ replaced Word with "Works Word Processor" in MS Works.

MS Office Live Add-in
Office Live Add-in help
Office Live Add-in workplace

Windows Defender - replaced by MSE--still needed?

Vista "My Stationary" - have one letterhead template created from MS Works. rest probably won't get used.

NTI Backup Now 5 - think these two were freebies from Acer "partners" for registering, and solicit you to buy the "full" version
NTI Media Maker 8

Software Informer - must've downloaded this, but don't know if it's reliable, and if it's a good idea to let third-party software update by itself...............
