Acer :: Aspire 5920G Bluetooth Jumbles Up My Words
Apr 28, 2010
I have the laptop above and I just saw the bluetooth switch (on the left of the keyboard was on) and now it's messing up my words. I have to type slow in order to avoid getting extra letters in my words or random caps lock. I'll type the same paragraph but in my normal speed I type in.
I have the laptop above ands I just saw the bluetooth switch (ON THE LEFT OF THE KEYBOARDS WAS ON) and now it's messingd up my wordss. I hgdave to type slow in order to avoid gdettingd extra letters in my wordss or randosmh caps lock.
i need some information regarding installing original bluetooth in an Acer aspire 5920g.. i know it has been discussed in the past Does the 5920 have blue-tooth? but since this thread is locked i guess i have to ask in a new thread..
The ones who tried it, how easy was it? from the manual it didn't seem too hard the only think that seems kind of dificulty was removing the keyboard..Is there any trick for it?
Also what is the odd module?
Regarding the heat grease, it was mentioned in the other thread "Heat grease:
When re-assembling and when you're about to put in the thermal module, make sure there's adequate heat grease on the CPU (don't put TOO much on). Sometimes taking off the thermal module can upset the heat grease, you want to make sure there's a good thermal path for the CPU."
Is this, only in case we notice that there isn't adequate amount? or should be applied some in any case?
I have had my Acer 8920g for 6 months now. I was running Vista 64 bit and win 7. I am now running Sabayon 4.1 and have had the same issues in each system. I can type a few sentences then look up and realize I am 1 or 2 sentences up in the paragraph typing in the middle of a word etc. Luckily I dont type alot on this computer but I need to. For example, while typing the I after luckily in the previou sentence, I look up and the I was in front of the I in the 3rd sentence. I have the touch control center to the left locked. I have emailed Acer support for a few months!with no response. I live in the US and Acer support is non exsistant here. I like Acer but if I had known about the poor support I probably would have purchased another brand.
I just acquired an Acer Aspire 5920G with NVidia GeForce 8600M GS.
I opened the back cover to see what it looks like and it looks like the graphics card is replaceable. Itís an MXM-II card in 73 mm x 78 mm dimensions.
Iím planning to replace the graphics card and I have couple questions.
Does the motherboard or the system support Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 MXM Ė II or Nvidia Quadro FX3600 512 MB MXM II?
How do you upgrade the CPU? I unbolted all the bolts on the heat sink but the frame is in the way and I canít slide the heat sink assembly out as simple as I thought it would be. Does the mainboard support X9000 extreme CPU?
Is there a link to a manual where it shows how to break apart the laptop? I might change the screen, etc.
Is it worth putting the 5920G on steroids with X9000 cpu and Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 or Nvidia Quadro FX3600?
So after packing up my comp at a friends house my comp is kinda dead, it was alive before I left my home and everything was fine then.
When i try to start it the cpu is flickering for a bit then freezes so i dont se any bios or anything.
The blue tooth and the lights to the right of the key board are lit to and I have no idea what to do.
Ive tried my old ram mem sticks, pulling out the battery and trying without it, trying a new hard drive, checking for loose cables inside the comp, checking for dust and screaming at it but nothing works.
I talked to some friends and they suggested something called flashing the bios but I have no idea how to do it and I dont know if it will work since i cant se the bios start up screen before it freezes.
I have called acer but they basicly told me to send it in but i dont know if i have any varenty left on it so I rather try to get it working on my own before sending it in if I still got varenty on it.
i played nfs and my laptop overheated and turned off fan was very loud. is there a way that i could buy a new fan or new graphic card i have Gfroce 8600gt 512 is there any graphic card beter one that doesent heat up so much?
I believe that my Acer Aspire 5920G was getting too hot, so I checked the temps:
CPU: 81C GPU: 73C HDD: 55C
I'm afraid those temperatures are too high. I don't understand why this happens! I don't play games that much now, I have cleaned the laptop's fans recently and I have the air-conditioner on all the day to keep the room with the laptop cool.
What can I do to decrease temps? I don't want to spend money, because I'm having problems with that laptop and my 8600M GS might die soon...
I don't think the issue is physical as under Audio Properties => recording I get response from the 'VU' meter there. However, I am simply not being heard across skype or BF2/OFP VOIP. It's not the levels, which are set to maximum, I've installed the latest realtek HD drivers, and skype is set to 'windows default device'
Windows sound recorder works, although not very well.
i installed windows 7 on my 5920g, however, i don't know what to do with empowering technology. Although launch manager is suggested by acer to be installed the other applications are not listed as compatible with windows 7..
I did download them though, and installed them, but at enet communication manager i got a message about known compatibility issues...So i wonder, if there is a compatible version, or if i can use a version of another laptop that originally came with win7 and if so ,which one..?
If I close or open the Display part of the screen and or all of the screen turn's black and or blue shortly, it flickers more or less. On some positions I don't get any flickering at all, but if I just slowly open it and adjust the viewing angle it tend to apear and disapear.
Also I can reproduce it if I slowly and very gently touch the top edges of the lid and slightly push on one side and pull on the other. Not much, just a bit. Also if I put a little pressure on the left bottom side of the screen it tend to get this flickering.
Black & Blue are not the only problem, sometimes the screen turns black all of the sudden and white stripes apear on the right side / partly left side and it looks like the display is burning in, it slowly gets white and the effect moves slowly to the middle of the display. Also an indicator for that problem is that part of the pixels on screen get blue and or flicker blue. Then bigger parts bet blue and so one.
The usual open / close / adjust viewing angle works to make this disapear for a while.
Also 3D extensive games and HD movies seem to cause this problem.
My Acer Aspire 5920G appears to have 'died' and I thought I'd try here before contacting Acer. Despite being under warranty, Acer have found loopholes to charge exorbitant fees every time something goes wrong.
the 2.5 year-old laptop was working perfectly last night. This morning, I opened it and:
T: Pressed power button T+2secs: DVD drive clicks on, hard drive spins up, everything seems normal T+5secs: NumLock light flashes, but visible POST/BIOS *does not appear*. The screen never shows anything. T+8secs: Hard drive is still on but ceases activity. Operating system is not loaded.
(I took the timings at a subsequent attempt, but every attempt follows the same pattern)
I've tried: - running from battery, AC and both - reseating the memory modules - replacing and removing the hard drive - booting with a boot disk in the DVD drive - booting with an external monitor attached
to no avail. From this end, I'm not sure what else I could try. Clearly there's no 'good' time for a laptop failure, but this is a pretty terrible time, so I was hoping to avoid Acer spending 6 weeks deciding how many hundreds to charge me.
Very often, when my 5920G boots, it changes from the native 1280x800 resolution to 1024x768. Because of that, the icons mess up and I have to change the resolution and then put the icons back at their place.
There is roughly 75% chance this will happen when my laptop boots.
Adding this with my other problems makes using this 5920G a frustrating experience!
This started happening months ago, when I reformated the laptop the problem had gone, and now it reappeared.
I have ordered this laptop recently (Spec is below), well, it's due to arrive tomorrow, and am probably going to upgrade to Vista x64, or at least give the new Windows 7 x64 a go on it. However, I'm just unsure as to whether it will be easy enough to migrate or whether I'm likely to have issues finding drivers for the relevant hardware. I hope someone here can give me some advice as attempting to scour the internet for a response for this particular model has been a nightmare, I've found the drivers page but it's all a bit confusing with seperate 64bit and then SP1 sections! ...
I have an Acer Aspire 5920G running Vista Home Premium that it came with preinstalled.
Now I'm itching to make the switch to Windows 7, but apparently the 5920G isn't on Acer's list of compatible computers, which has me a bit apprehensive... However, I've run the upgrade advisor and it gave me just a few minor concerns, which leads me to my question:
If I upgrade to Windows 7, will my recovery partition still be intact, enabling me to revert back to the factory defaults with Windows Vista if need be?
I've got an Aspire 5920G with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 graphics card/chipset. Up until last week, I'd been running with whatever drivers had been installed when I originally purchased the laptop in October last year.
Vista's Windows Update told me of new drivers for the 3470 that had been released in January, so I promptly downloaded them, glad to have something a little more up-to-date, since the laptop is being used frequently as a lightweight gaming machine. The driver, according to Device Manager, is dated 15/01/2009, and is version number 8.580.0.0.
My problem now is that every time I boot the machine, an ATI warning appears reading the following:
"The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enable graphics adapter. Please update your ATI graphics driver, or enable your ATI adapter using the Displays Manager."..................
I have an acer aspire 5920g laptop that has recently stopped working , when I power on the computer the fan goes on and the power on light also goes on and two other lights flash once but nothing comes up on the screen and the computer never starts the boot sequence....the fan then goes off but the power light stays on , I already put new thermal compound on the processor and graphics card...I tried removing the ram modules , the wifi card and the hard drive ect. nothing seems to work ,
iv had this problem for a few weeks now and nothing seems to be working. Everytime I play a game I get a bluescreen about display drivers and windows Problem Reports and Solutions says its a problem with ATI Graphics Drivers aswell.
I have tried various different ATI drivers and the driverhearn mod application but all them having failed I even run Acer eReovery and restored back to factory setting and STILL have the same problem but with a new error message, popping up occasionally while just genrally using the laptop, saying that the drivers stopped responding but managed to recover... something along those lines.
-Acer Aspire 5920G -ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 -Vista 32-bit
I am playing "Dragon Age: Origins" and, for the first time, a game is very, very slow. I already reduced the graphics in game, i already searched better drivers for the graphic card and got no better results. Besides that, the latests drivers recommended for my graphic card has unusual results in windows: sometimes, it blinks!
I already re-installed my Windows Vista to get better results... and got the same.
I bought this laptop 5 months ago and I have been monitoring it slowly deteriorating by battery life, it is a 6 cell 4400mAh battery and I use it every day, and make sure not to let it drop below 10% battery power as to not do full discharges and only partial.
I was getting 1hr 50 mins when I first got the laptop which may have been max or min settings I cant remember but anyways which seems not as good as the advertised 2.5 hr battery but I can understand that advertised and actual may differ and max, min would have had an effect. Anyways now after 5 months (Purchased early december) I am only getting 58 mins on full charge at minimum settings, now this does seem quite ridiculous and NHC is reporting 49% wear level.
My question is, is this normal for a Li-Ion Acer battery after 5 months, it seems quite bad to me, and all I can think is the laptop was left on the shelf for a while before i bought it, or that it is defective. I rang acer warranty support and I feel quite fobbed off with them saying this is normal and usage patterns and that their warranty for batteries only last 6 months and I should expect only to get 1/4 of the full charge i did when i purchased after 6 months. So acer is in the business of making low quality batteries?
Over the last few days I've read countless posts abt the same problem as I've been having with my Acer Aspire 5920G. It all started a week ago. I had shut down my laptop the night b4 and in the morning as usual I pressed the power button to start it up, it started up, completed POST and then powered on with a blank/switched off LCD screen and I could hear it going all the way up to the Vista log-on screen...... all this time with a blank screen that had no power. I kept it for a few minutes and then switched it off.
When i tried to restart,........the laptop powers on, the Bluetooth light comes on and the Hard drive led flickers a couple of times and then it'll just sit there unable to load the BIOS! Naturally I thought something was wrong with the BIOS for it to not start or complete POST. But I had absolutely no idea where the BIOS battery was located, so I couldn't do very much abt it (now I've some idea where it is, after a week of tinkering with the motherboard.)
But just to be on the safe side, over the last week I checked the RAM (which was OK), took out and reseated my GPU board (seemed OK, the GPU could have been the culprit coz of the blank screen), removed the Heat Sink (which was covering the CPU and which also acted as a Heat Sink for the GPU) and checked the CPU. The thermal paste that was covering the CPU had melted all around it, so I replaced it with new thermal paste after I cleaned it. Then I disconnected and reconnected the Heat Sink Fan and put it all back together. It didn't restart! The same symptoms as b4 appeared again. But this time after a few secs, it went into an infinite loop of powering on and restarting every 5 or so seconds.
So I thought, I'll give it one last go b4 chucking it for a new laptop! Since the first symptom of the whole problem when this all started was a LCD screen that wasn't working...... I removed all the coverings of the screen and detached and reconnected the two LCD inverter cables connected to the inverter boards thats located just below the screen and then after removing the back covering of the LCD screen, I detached and reconnected the LCD cable just behind the screen. The attachment of this cable is very fragile and flimsy. I've a feeling that this is what caused all the problems. It did seem loose!........
I've just bought an Acer Aspire 5920G and the Crystal Eye webcam works perfect with MSN and so does the internal microphone. However, I've started hosting a show on an Internet radio and the sound quality from the internal mic is too low. Therefore I bought a microphone that I plugged in the appropriate jack on the laptop (next to the jack for the headphones) but when recording or broadcasting it seems that my laptop uses BOTH the external and the internal mic. Could anybody tell me how to DISABLE the internal mic and use the external instead?
I've tried to disable the Crystal Eye from the Device Manager on Windows Vista but that doesn't solve the problem. I've also tried to modify the settings from the recording devices but the LineIn is not plugged in. I'd just like to plug a mic and use that instead of the webcam's one. Any help would be really appreciated as I have to host a show in 2 days and I don't have a clue on how to solve this problem.
