Acer :: Aspire 5738G Heating
I bought an acer aspire 5738G a couple of days ago with windows 7 x64 installed ,catalyst 9.9. When playing any game or using any 3D demanding application both my GPU temp. jumps up to 85-95 degrees C, and the CPU to 75-85 degrees C. according to GPU-Z my fan speed is always at 30% no matter how hot the lappy gets. I also wanna mention I didn't OC or use any modded stuff yet.
My questions are:
-Are these normal temps since this is my first acer and my previous lappy which wasn't an acer with a Nvidia Geforce GO7900 never got past the 75 degrees barrier
- Is there something wrong with the fan or it is supposed to kick in only at critical heat point

Acer :: Downgrading Bios For Aspire 5738G
my laptop overheating problems ever since I bought it, I almost tried everything ..... but alas nothing worked the final straw im hanging on is to downgrade my bios to the utterly old version 1.13 which is the last known stable & heat friendly version which is not on Acer website anymore .... So I was wondering if anyone has the windows 7 x64 executable bios 1.13 for aspire 5738G on their laptop
Acer :: Aspire 5738G Fan Runs Almost Constantly
When I power on, after about 5-6 minutes the fan (I assume the CPU fan) kicks in. However, it then seems to remain on constantly until the laptop is turned off, even if I'm only idling. This is slightly annoying, not just because of the noise, but also it seems to have quite a noticeable effect on the battery life.
I have installed SpeedFan to keep track of the CPU temp and it seems that the fan kicks in initally when the core temps reach about 35 C, but then the fan does not switch off, even when temps drop back down to 25/26 C, which seems very cool.
On every other laptop I have used (none of which were Acers), the CPU fan only comes on now and again, as and when it is needed.
So, is this normal behaviour or is there possibly a fault with the fan control mechanism ? If so I will consider taking back to the retailer for an exchange.
Acer :: Inactive 4500MHD Inside The Aspire 5738G
I have bought the Aspire 5738G over half a year ago and it was just a couple of days back from now, when Everest showed me a hardware report about an integrated Intel 4500MHD onboard, which is inactive.
I couldn't find any info on this matter online, so I thought that with your help and my readiness to disassemble my laptop, we could figure out a way to make use of this integrated chip, which would result in serious power savings when running on battery.
I am thinking that maybe there is some place in the circuitry that was cut in order to disable the chip or something, or that it has no access to the LCD and HDMI ports.
Also, I downloaded a Service Manual for my model and I couldn't find my 5738G specification in it.
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 :: 5738G Bottom Vent Built Closed
I bought my Acer Aspire 5738G laptop last november and this month I experienced for the first time my laptop shutting down by itself while playing cs-source.
The laptop is quite hot and upon searching the net found out that it's most likely due to overheating.
My question is about the ventilation at the bottom of 5738G.
Is it supposedly closed? No holes/slots? Cause I think it's the cause of overheating.
The system doesn't have a way to take-in air
It's like it was designed to be a bottom vent for air intake but then forgot to make holes in it.
I also searched for it's manual and confirmed that it is a ventilation slot.
It even says there "do not cover or obstruct the opening of the fan".
(I've got a screen shot attached. I'm talking about part 6. That part of my laptop doesn't have holes/slots but clearly there should be according to the manual.
Acer :: Heating On Ferrari 4005
i have update my firmware to the new one, but it seems that it shut down at lower temperature.
but i have also upgrade my ram to 2 gb but its kingston value ram
and i have 2 operating system now, window xp and window vista ultimate
is it true that if i run the systerm on vista, it make the pc temperature hotter? and if run on high performance, its even higher than that?
at the moment im running window xp, running window media player watching videos, with 2 internet explorer running and also the everest ultimate edition which shows 63c for the cpu and 39c for hdd, and now im using those 4 fans notebook cooler.
is this temperature normal?
and sometime when just watching high definition video on window vista my laptop will shut itself down...
do u think its the ram which cause this problem? or is it window vista? or the new firmware which cause my laptop to shut itself down?
Dell :: Studio 15 (Heating)
I've had my Studio 15 for 10 months now and it has always heated up very soon after startup but lately it has been getting so hot that it burns to put my hands on the palm rest or the touchpad.
In the last few days it has also been switching itself off randomly which I think might be from the heat. When it turns back on I get a blue screen with a memory dump and it doesn't let me turn it back on for a while.
Also when it gets hot, the laptop seems to slow down, freeze or mouse movement/video play stutters on the screen which I don't think should happen for 4GB of ram .....
HP/Compaq :: HP Dv4 Heating
I recently purchased the highly touted HP dv4-1155se from Best Buy. I am very pleased with it so far, and have found 64 bit vista much less of a pain than I thought.
With that being said, the only thing I am worried about is the heat issues - it seems to get very hot when playing a game or intensive graphic operation. I was using CPUID Monitor, and the temperature of the AMD Turion X2 peaked at 82 Celsius. I assume this temperature isn't normal? Is this temperature hazardous for my computer? Do you feel like it could go even higher? I feel like it should handle heat better than this, especially after playing a game for only 30-60 minutes.
Dell :: Latitude D630 Over Heating
I have a D630 that is still under warranty, but I've been having huge overheating problems with it. (We're talking 160F+ under light load). This is the model with the Nvidia video card.
When I first called Dell, they sent someone to replace the fan and heatsink. That didn't solve the problem. I figured that I was suffering from the notorious Nvidia thermal issue, and they replaced the motherboard. The problem got worse, and they replaced the motherboard again, and the problem got slightly better.
The thing is, I don't actually need an Nvidia video card because I don't do much aside from internet browsing and copying files over the network. I was upset after the fourth time they sent a Dell technician, that I called them and demanded that they replace my Nvidia board with a standard Intel graphics board. They finally agreed.
Yesterday a technician came out with a new motherboard with an Intel video chipset rather than Nvidia, as well as a new heatsink and fan that matches the new board. Now the darn thing is running at 190F at light load!!! it's actually worse than the Nvidia one was!
Do any of you have any clue what the problem might be? I don't even want to use this thing anymore. What's even more interesting is that we've issued about 30+ Intel D630's out to our associates at work, and none of them have any issues. I wonder why it's just mine.
Dell :: M1330 Heating Up And Slowness
Ive had my m1330 for about 16 months now.
Had issues with it during that period mostly on heating up and slowness.
Ive had the motherboard replaced once around the 10 month period.
Now the laptop is still heating up and its really slow/lagging especially when im watching videos(DivX, DVDs etc). Sometimes i would even get the BSOD.
Is there a way to fix this, could this be a software issue?
Dell :: New Heating Problems With XPS1640
Got my XPS1640 back in June, undervolted it and never had any temperature problems and it has performed greatly. However, a few days ago I updated the GPU, bios and cpu ( i think) drivers to be more up-to-date. Got A11 (was A08) and used mobility modder for the new ATI driver.
Since then however I have had problems. CPU temperatures have been raising (around 80+ or so - before it would only reach 70 max) causing the laptop to throttle back giving me dire frame rate in games.
Dell :: GPU Heating Up Under Vista
I have an m90 with NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500M.
It came with Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit preinstalled.
I've installed Windows XP as a second OS(dual boot).
Immediately I noticed that GPU under Windows Vista in idle state keeps heating up.
In Windows XP its temperature stays at the level of 60 degrees C in idle state and the fans are not engaged.
In Windows Vista its temperature in idle state goes very quickly to the level of 80 degrees C the fans are engaged, temperature goes down to the level of about 60 degrees, the fans are disengaged and everything repeats.
Anybody knows the possible reason of GPU heating up under Vista?
Both OSs have latest drivers installed.
HP/Compaq :: Dv9000 Heating- Updates

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16t Heating
I bought an HDX 16t back in may, and have loved it.
But I notice, after installing Speedfan, that this thing gets VERY hot
even propped up a half inch off the desk, playing any game that's demanding gets the thing to a blistering 96*C... WAY too hot for a laptop.
Now here's the interesting thing, when it hits 96* it stays at 96*, like the fan kicks into turbo mode or something.
is this a defective product? or do all 16t's have this issue?
and if it is an issue I can fix, what are some ideas? besides getting a cooling pad, I don't really like the extra bulk under the front of the laptop. But for fixing the comp, should I mess around with some setting somewhere to make it kick into turbo mode at a lower temp? (like 88), should I under volt it? it's a new laptop with no trapped dust.
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv9000 Over Heating
While playing WoW the FPS is from 15-65. When it cools off, ill get a great FPS and can play it fine but it will quickly heat up and drop for 20-30 minutes at a time. Right now im using a cooling pad but it doesnt help much at all except to give me that 45-60 FPS time for about 5 minutes. The bottom gets so hot at times it can literally burn my skin, I have a couple of marks to prove it.
Dell :: Heating Problem Studio Xps 16
I buy a dell studio xps 4 month ago. I had few problem with it.
My laptop is realy hot sometime. I was just on firefox ( with alot of page open) and the heat go like 60, 65 degree celsius ( it is 140, 149 in Fahrenheit i think). I don't know if it is normal or if my laptop have a problem.
I call dell and they change the cpu fan but it don't seem to have change anything. The laptop is still very hot.
I have another problem. When i play on game my computer go very slow and when i chek in task manager the cpu run a 100%. It happen in some of the game that i play. I don't understand why because a chek the minimum configuration of the game and my computer is over that so i am supose to be able to play the game with no problem. The last game that this situation happen was prince of persia ( the last one).
And when i play on game the heat go at 70, 75 degree celsius ( it is 158,167 Fahrenheit ) ....
Dell :: Heating In Studio XPS 1340
I am thinking about buying a studio XPS 1340. The only thing holding me back is the heating issue.
If the heating only comes from intense use of the graphics card (ie gaming) then that's not too much of an issue for me.
If there isn't a lot of heat generated from web/email, watching videos and running applications, then I think I'd be ok with it.
Dell :: XPS Heating Test Drive Unlimited
I got my XPS M1530 about 5 months ago and everything was fine. But today, while I was playing Test Drive Unlimited, I noticed that the game began slowing down etc.. so I opened up HWMonitor (ver. 1.10.00) to check the temperatures. Here they are:
ACPI - THM_ : 90 C
CPU : 90 C (Both Cores)
GPU Core: 90

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Problems With Over Heating And Hard Drive
I've got 2 problems with my dell vostro 1500:
1) There is a huge amount of heat coming out of the side vent and the fan is constantly on. I'm led to believe that this is because of dust inside the system. Looking at the service manual (http://support.dell.com/support/edoc....htm#wp1179839) suggests that I have to take the monitor off. I'm worried that the system won't work after I do this. Can't I just open the system from the bottom?
2) My second problem is about hard drive noise. Looking on this website, many people have commented that hard drive noise is low. For me the hard drive noise is quite loud and when your in a quiet room it can be annoying. I've changed the setting in the BIOS to quiet but this has made no difference. I know that the hard drive is not broken because it's only 3/4 months old and I have used seatools to check that there are no faults with the hard drive. Is there any way to make the hard drive quieter?
Dell :: Anyone Having Gpu Heating Problems On Your Precision M4400 When Gaming
I was all set to buy a refurbished Precision m4400 until I started to read about gpu downclocking heating issues that some people have when playing higher end gpu intensive games.
Is this still a problem with this particular notebook (where a lack of sufficient cooling design will force the gpu to downclock when trying to play gpu intensive simulation games)?
Do you recommend this notebook if I plan on using it for gaming 50% of the time? I need to buy a business notebook through my company but do not want to buy this particualr one if I can't game with it. (My other option would be an XPS 1530 with a worse 8600gty gpu option.)
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated to help me decide whether to purchase this m4400 notebook.

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 Timeline 5810-4784
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 :: Aspire 6935g3333333333333333
I am tkinking about getting a better CPU and GPU for my Laptop. I am thinking about upgrading my T6400 to T9400 and get rid of my 9600GS and upgrade it to something more powerful. I don't have a problem with CPU upgrade but I have never done the GPU. Since it is a MXM-II graphic card how difficult can it be to install something different? Are you able to swap between NVIDIA and ATI cards?Z
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 Shutting Off
i have an acer aspire 5100 series everything is great on it except i have this weird problem, when i connect to my wireless network after is says connected i open the iexplorer and then the laptop shuts off. Thats the only time it does that, if i dont connect to the internet it works fine and never turns off. First i thought it was overheating but i bought those fans that go under the laptops and still shuts off when i connect to my wireless network. Anyone have any idead of what could be causing this?
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 :: 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 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.

Now I have xp working I would like to enable AHCI mode in the bios but the various tutorials Ive looked at so far have been unsuccessful.
Has anyone who has this model Aspire 7730 been successful in this procedure or knows a way that has worked for others?
I repeat that this should be a procedure that is Aspire 7730 specific as I feel this is the key.
Acer :: Aspire 6930
I've just purchased an Acer Aspire 6930. It came with an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD and a HDMI out port. The weird thing is that if I can't play HD-DVDs or BlueRay discs, then what's the point of having it? Can anyone tell me why they setup that way?
Acer :: Aspire One Processor
I bought an Aspire One at Costco with an 11.6" screen. I love the extra real estate, however I am concerned about the processor, which is only 1.25gig. I have the option of taking this machine back. I did not realize that this was not a 1.6gig processor when I purchased it. Anyone have any experience with this model?
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,
