Acer :: Aspire 5920G And ATI Driver Update

Mar 6, 2009

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."..................

Acer :: 5920g Software Update

Nov 3, 2008

I have 5920g with 8600gtm. I have my laptop for over a year now - no major issues what so ever. Anyway - I revised some software and decided to do some update - There's new vga driver 175.90 - my gaming temps are now much lower reaching 65C tops. I also decided to update sound driver to 2.07 and empowering technology which is listed under 5930g aplications. I managed to install everything without any problems. I have two questions though: my E key doesn;t work anymore - how can I assign it back to empowering apps. I understand that 2.07 realtek driver doesnt support 2.1 sound - so does it mean my subwoofer doesn;t work anymore - or it works - it just can;t be controlled (how can it be controled with default driver anyway? never saw any option to do this in 5920g) - alternatively can I use other 2.1 drivers design for 5930 or 6930 which are newer than the one specified for 5920?

Acer Aspire E1-571 :: Hangs On Boot Post Windows Update - Appears To Be Corrupt Driver

Feb 19, 2015

My daughter's Acer is 2.5 years old and it's running Windows 7.  She recently rebooted it last week for a Windows Update and since then it starts up but hangs, with the hard drive light blinking slowly.  I ran it in Safe Mode and it gets through CLASSPNP.SYS then hangs.  According to articles this is usually a hardware problem.  The only option I have with this OS is to bring up the Command Prompt.  I've tried System File Checker - no go.  System Repair comes back with unknown error and what looks like a bad Driver.
 
I was able to build a new partition (100+GB) and do a clean install of Windows 7 x64 Ultimate w/ SP1.  This went through fine, though I would have to load the Acer drivers for the network card, etc. to finalize it.  The point here is that this shows that the hard drive isn't the issue.
 
My fear is that Windows installed either some sort of driver or other update that has now caused the current OS on her laptop to be unusable.  I went to do a System Restore and the only restore point it had was the Critical Update that she rebooted to on 2/13.  Trying to roll back to that Restore Point didn't work.

where the hell do you download forceware updates for the 5920G or for acers in general?

Acer :: 5920G Vista 64bit SP1 Driver

Jan 4, 2009

I will migrate to Vista Ultimate 64bit SP1 soon.

So I need drivers for my 5920G.

I've search around, and finally I found this link:
[url]

But, is that really a driver for Vista 64bit SP1? Or is it just for the old Vista 64bit? (not for Service Pack 1)? or it's all the same and won't have a problem if installed to 64bit SP1?

Does someone has another source to get the drivers?

Acer :: Aspire 5920G

Mar 6, 2009

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. Its an MXM-II card in 73 mm x 78 mm dimensions.

Im 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 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 cant 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?

Acer :: Dead Aspire 5920g

Oct 31, 2008

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.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G- Overheating

Jun 23, 2009

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...

Acer :: Aspire 5920G VOIP

Oct 9, 2008

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.

Acer :: Aspire 5920g With Windows 7

Dec 9, 2009

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..?

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Display

Apr 2, 2009

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.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Appears To Have 'died'

Jan 12, 2010

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.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Resolution Changes At Startup

Aug 3, 2009

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.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G- Upgrading To Vista X64

Apr 6, 2009

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 always an error message, the one in the printscreen.

Yes, i have opened the program with administrator privileges, the same message pops out.
I think that the problem is that i have Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Upgrade To Windows 7

Oct 24, 2009

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?

Acer :: DELL XPS M1530 Or ASPIRE 5920G

May 30, 2008

I live in the UK and i kno this site is mostly USA based but u can still help me out with making a decision

Ok the Dell is waaay more attractive and popular but the acer fights it corner pretty well so in other words I cant choose! Here the specs:

Acer 5920g - 549 on comet.co.uk
2ghz intel t7300
2gb RAM
1gb turbo Memory (amazing for start up speed)
geforce 8600gs 265mb gfx card
15.4" screen with 0.3mp webcam
HD-DVD drive (hd-dvd is pointless now :S)
250gb hdd

Dell XPS M1530 - around 680 on Dells website

2ghz intel t7250
2gb RAM
geforce 8600gt 265mb
15.4" screen with 2.0mp webcam
slot load DVD drive (slot load is good)
250gb hdd

Both have windows vista home premium

The acer is designed by BMW so it isnt exacty ugly infront of the dell but the decision is haaard, The 1gb turbo memory in the acer is major advantage when booting the laptop,

Acer :: Aspire 5920g With 8600M GT Slow In A Game

Jan 28, 2010

my notebook is an ACER Aspire 5920g.

It has a NVIDIA Geforce 8600M GT, with 512Mb ram.

My problem:

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.
