Acer :: Aspire 5930G Suyin Webcam
I've got problem with my webcam. She worked well when I had got linux Fedora 9 and preinstalled MS Windows Vista. Later I changed Vista 32 bit on Vista 64 bit and I long didn't used the webcam. Later I updated my bios under MS Windows Vista x64 (to v1.19 earlier I had got v1.15). One day I wanted to make a foto with webcam but with no success because Suyin application say Camera not found. Webcam "Vendor ID" is 0c45 and "Product ID" is 63e0. These values indicate on Sonix Webcam but I'am sure that I've got Suyin Webcam and that before I had corect Vendor ID and Product ID for Suyin Webcam. I want to add that i have tried to downgrade to older bios but it makes no difference. I want my Webcam back.

Acer :: Windows XP Drivers For Aspire 5930G
I would like to know where i can get windows XP drivers for Acer Aspire 5930G. I want to dual boot XP with the Vista that came preinstalled.
I have two partitions on factory setup: one for VISTA OS and the other is labelled as DATA. I thought of formatting the second partition and installing XP on it. Is this possible? Would a boot menu be created? Or is there any other sequence in which i should install this.
The Specification is as follows:
Intel Core2Duo P8400 2.26 GHz
512 MB nVidia GeForce 9600M GT
250 GB HDD
and the rest...
Acer :: Aspire 5930G - 1080p Full Hd
I own a 5930G for almost a year.It has an NVidia 9600M GT and it says "1080p full hd" on a sticker.
Using Vlc media player,I have minor sound problems with 720p .mkv files.Particularly,every 3-4 seconds,the sound seems discontinuous for an instant.Is there something I can do about it?
How can I check if I have the latest graphics card drivers and if not,update them?
This and my former aspire acer model,can only burn a few brands of cd/dvds without error.Lots of common brands,like TDK,philips etc get a failure while burning always at the time that the burning process is beyond 80% complete.I start to think that this is a common problem for acer laptops.Can you suggest brands of cd's/dvd's that work well?in my former acer aspire model,"that's write" were the only ones that I could find that worked 100% of the time.And I had tried about 12 known brands.In my 5930g model,I haven't tried to test a lot of brands yet,but the "that's write" brand doesn't work any more.I have burned less than 10 cds and the problem occured right from the beginning.
my battery life is reduced to a mere 30 seconds.Is there a way to recalibrate it?can't seem to find it in the acer e-power management
Acer :: Restoring Factory Defaults, Aspire 5930g
I decided to restore my aspire 5930g laptop to factory defaults, and started out with creating the restoration discs. At this point, i wasn't really aware that one could restore from the harddrive.
So i booted up the discs and started the restoration process. But now, the dialog tells me to insert the third disc, while i only have two. What should i do? I could try to kill the restoration process and start over from the harddrive, but im afraid to harm the system.
Acer :: Aspire 5930G Clean Install WiFi
I just reinstalled my Acer Aspire 5930G (844G32BN) with Vista Home Premium. Everything looks fine except the wireless connection. My computer cannot find any wireless networks (although my other notebook finds all 3 around me). It looks like as if the notebooks WiFi signal would not work.
Could anyone tell me what exact drivers the original installation have? I tried the Intel ProSet/Wireless drivers now. The WiFi led flashes, but cannot find any networks.With the original installation I had no problem regarding the WiFi.

Acer :: Aspire Crystal Eye Webcam
This ones just a small problem. My webcam works fine, but it's missing on the menu and i can't locate it anywhere in my files so it's just a bit annoying if i want to make a video. It's not even in the manual (printed or computer version). It took three weeks before it appeared in the menu after I bought the laptop, but since I had to restore to factory default and god knows where it is, as i say it's only a minor problem, no location in services. and when i expand my Acer menus theres nothing there either.

Acer :: Webcam- Aspire 5520
I have a new OTB acer aspire 5520, and on initial booting everything worked sweetly but when i am trying to access my crystal eye cam on YM or any IM programs it says the webcam is not connected, Now I checked device manager and there is no webcam, so i installed the driver from the erecovery management tool I tried first the BISON driver and utility without success upon installation the program says the computer should display a "found new hardware" message, but nothing showed up. then when it restarted my machine and when i checked on device manager still no cam... next i uninstalled the BISON driver and installed the 2nd one (SUYIN) with the same results. I searched the support and download section of ACER online and tried a third driver the CHICONY and still the same results.. Finally i re installed my system to full factory default and re tried everything still the same problems...
Acer :: Aspire 5610 WebCam & BSOD
I have an Aser Aspire 5610 - 2328. The model is 5610z. I have the same issue with my webcam and it is orbicam with logitech software. I also here the unplugging sound and also get BSOD's. My laptop is under warranty and it has been sent in to be checked. They could not find any issues also when I click the orbicam icon first try it shows it disconnected. I try again it works. They still claim its working and nothing they can do they have also seen what it doese when clicking on the icon and still claim its working.
Not sure if they really checked the connections I will look into it. It is under warranty thru Wal-Mart and was sent to a place called Cyber Test in Longwood Florida.
Acer :: Software For Aspire 4720 Webcam (XP)
I bought an Acer Aspire 4720, installed Windows XP and Linux Ubuntu. On XP, I can see the webcam working as a USB device, but I don't have any software to make it "do" something other than showing my ugly face.
I need to record, shoot some still images, and being able to video chatting (i.e. msn messenger).
What software can I use? Do I need something else (driver)?
The webcam is working, but has no software to handle it.

Acer :: Partitioning - 5930G
this is my HD it was prepartitioned into these 4 Primary Partitions (i did resize C and extended the D partition) any way i know the 1st partition is the recovery but what about that last one?
now i wanna install windows 7 beta to try it out for real (I did try it in VM) so i want to dual boot it with the pre installed Vista Home premium SP1, the problem is i can't create any partitions bcuz i already have 4 primary partitions.
with Paragon Partition manager i can convert the D partition to Logical partition but will my data be safe ... i wanna be sure about that first.

Acer :: 5930G-733G25Mn Win XP Installation
The settings are "IDE" in BIOS for the HDD.
Bios Ver: v1.21 (got that version by default)
So I got REAL problems when trying to install Win XP Pro SP2 on my brand new Acer Aspire 5930G-733G25Mn.
First I tried to slipstream the ahci driver and making a custom XP disk, that didn't work, I got BSOD before the first part (blue background and white text) of the Windows installation.
Ok so I bought a USB-floppy only for this problem and loaded "f6flpy32_85.zip" onto a floppydisk and pressed "F6" to load SATA drivers under the Win XP installation boot.
EDIT: I extracted the files onto a floppy, there are no .zip file on the floppy only the contents of that .zip file.
I then chose "Intel(R) ICH8M-E/ICH9M-E SATA RAID Controller" then I can get past the "first phase" of the Win XP installation.
BUT when I get to the end of the first installation with an automatic reboot within 15sec or enter to do it directly the following happends:

Acer :: 5930G Speakers Fizzing
I got myself the Acer Aspire 5930G this past Sunday. I can also mention that my friend bought the exact same computer just a couple hours before, from the same store here in Stockholm, Sweden.
The problem now is that the built in speakers make a fizzing, or I don't know exactly how to describe it, sound, when I play a song for example. The sound became more obvious when having a voiceconversation through Msn with a friend and playing musicvideos on youtube.
Now, my friend appeared to have the same problems with his speaker, just slightly less obvious. It bugged me enough to make a trip back to the store in order to set things straight. Listening to the Demoex at the store, the speakers were even worse, so I just had to accept the fact that "speakers on laptops generally suck"...
I still can't though, and I'd like to know how you experience your built-in speakers, are they "crystal clear" no matter how high of a volume you play (75% and up)?
Acer :: 5930G Cooling Solution
I got myself 5930G a week ago.
I removed all of the unnecessary programs that Acer put in (they do make decent laptops but really overbload the OS with stupidities) and optimized Vista as much as I could (which is working nicely if i do say so myself ... but I'm still considering on going back to XP SP3 until Windows 7 comes out.).
Right ... I also played Mass Effect for a while on the laptop (maxed out at native res of 1280x800 works without a problem).
Now the only thing is, I'd like to reduce the temperatures of the laptop.
The idle CPU temp is at about 52 degrees, while under load reaches about 72 degrees Celsius (which is pretty good considering the casing).
I will buy myself the ZALMAN ZM-NC2000B cooler ... but what I would also love to do is to undervolt both the CPU and the GPU.
I'm aware the RMClock is not exactly effective when it comes to P7350 cpu.
I tried to undervolt it last night, and as much as I reduced the current going to the multipliers, the temperatures remained the same under stress for prolonged periods of time.
So ... until I find a way to undervolt the cpu and get myself the forementioned cooler, I'd like to undervolt the gpu (9600m GT GDDR3)
If it's possible (and I know it is), I need to know of programs that can be used to acomplish this.
As much as I like my new laptop, it would be nice to further extend it's lifespan (even though it's brand new) and reduce the heat output.
I was also thinking on getting the thermal paste and applying it to cpu/gpu.
Although I'm not sure I want to go ahead with it as I don't want to void the warranty.
how to overclock the cpu/gpu in question without significant gains in temps.
Acer :: 5930G SM Bus Controller Driver
i recently installed WinXP on my Acer 5930G (went from vista). i managed to find all the drivers (including the ICH9M SATA ACHI-mode driver) except one called the SM Bus Controller which is showing up in device manager with a little yellow ! symbol. Does anyone know where I can find this driver? the Intel website and their chipset identifier tool seems to be quite useless. The chipset identifier can't identify anything except the I/O controller (82801MB ICH9M SATA AHCI-mode) which was installed from the '32-bit floppy configuration files'
Geforce 9600M GT
Intel 965 Express (i think)
does anyone know which SM Bus Controller driver i need for XP?
Acer :: 5930g AHCI Driver For WinXP
So I wanted to try out WinXP, to see the performance difference.
At first, the WinXP setup wasn't able to see the HDD. So I changed the SATA Controller Bios mode to IDE mode. (was AHCI for Vista).
I managed to install so have a dual booted system. However I can't use IDE mode for Vista. (must switch SATA bios each time).
Everything installed fine. Even got 3dMark06 increase of 150 points (not much lol). Oh and CrystalMark of 100K instead of 90K on Vista.
But I'd like to use AHCI mode for WinXP. Saw a link in a WinXP 5930g Guide, however that link was out of date.
The driver was called: "Intel(R) ICH9M M-E Family 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller - 2929 Driver".
Acer :: Dvd Driver Cant Be Read By The Vista - 5930g
5930g, every time I but a dvd or cd in my dvd driver it cant be read by the vista.., I just hear sounds in the driver and got nothing at all!
after I restart for 2 or 3 times it works and the vista does recognize it.., I got really sick of this.., so what should i do.., should I install xp or what.., even if that was the solution I need a dvd rw driver to burn a bootable cd with the sata drives..,
Acer :: 5930G HDMI Audio Greyed Out
Computer: Acer 5930G-733G25Mn
Just finished installing all drivers in Win XP but I can't get the HDMI audio to work.
When I go to "Control Panel" then "Sounds and Audio" and change to "NVIDIA HDMI Audio" the volumebar is down at its lowest and the entire bar is "greyed out". Also if I play some music I hear a "thumping" sound from my TV:s speakers.
The driver I am using is 184.108.40.206 taken directly from the drivercd that I burned out together with recoverydiscs so its an "orginal" Acer (although Vista) driver.
I have also tried 220.127.116.11 to no luck.
My graphic driver is 180.70 with the modded .inf from Laptopvideo2go.
The other device is "Realtek HD Audio output" and it works fine, that driver ought to be me primary audio driver if I'm not misstaken.
Acer :: 5930G: Need To Refresh My 9600M GT, Not Kept Any Back Up Files
I have got a Acer 5930G John Lewis model. I flashed my Nvidia 9600M GT 512mb to overclock it. Everything was ok initially and I was able to play most games maxxed out.
After about 9 months things started going wrong. Initially the laptop would only crash when playing a heavy game such as FEAR or crysis for a long period of time. Then as time went on, the laptop become less tolerant to any GPU processing and now crashes even crashes when playing Quake Live or CS 1.6.
Migrating to Win 7 temporarily fixed the problem, but then things quicky went wrong again.
Before making any modifications, I had backed up all my files on a USB drive as I had no optical media at the time, unfortunately, the drive was placed into a mac by a friend by accident and subsequently formatted. OOPS.
So, I have lost all my original NVflash files and Im stuck with a 9600M that can't take it anymore. Is there anyway I can reclock the timings on the Gfx card or am I screwed?

Acer :: Horizontal Wave-like Distortions (5930G/9600M GT)
recently bought an acer aspire 5930 with an Nvidia geforce 9600M gt,3GB RAM,and an intel core 2 duo @ 2.00 Ghz.
When I play games I often notice annoying small horizontal wave-like distortions even at the intro videos of some games(Pro Evolution Soccer 09 for example).
I read that it might have been V-sync that cause these horizontal distortions, however turning it off doesn't help at all.
Vertical movement in the scenery seems to cause these wave like effects to occur and I really don't know what do to, I've tried mostly everthing.
I am using Dox's 180.7 drivers, forcing V-sync off etc.
Dell :: Studio 15 Webcam Center "No Supported Webcam Driver Detected" SOLVED
A few days before I was going to shipping my Studio 15 off. I looked in the box and low and behold I found the Dell Webcam Center disk that I originally thought that Dell had forgotten to include.
Upon installation I found that the specific version of Dell WC that came with my Studio 15 is not the same one that you find at the downloads center on support.dell.com.
I could never get the downloaded Dell WC to work, even after numerous chats with technical support. No matter how many times I contacted Dell about this, they claimed there is only one version of Dell Webcam Center. Clearly that isn't true .....
Acer :: XP On 5920: Mic/Webcam
I've been having issues with Vista on this machine, so yesterday I decided to scrap Vista and all the Acer software and install XP Pro. Now I have XP Pro SP3 installed.
I Googled and downloaded the XP drivers needed for audio (RealTek), webcam (Suyin), etc, and while they work, I'm having problems. The webcam worked great before the switch to XP.
1. The webcam video quality is very poor, like an old tv that needs to be thrown out.
2. The audio pick-up of the built in microphone is extremely low. I've gone through all the adjustments I can find with no luck. This has actually gotten worse as I've tried to upgrade drivers and what-not. Before the audio quality was poor but it worked, now the audio is barely there at all.
I have been trying to upgrade drivers both from the Acer website and from other sources, but I'm not making any progress. I installed the drivers before upgrading to SP3 (which I had read was the way to go), but now that I have installed SP3 and am reinstalling drivers, it seems like things have gotten worse.
Acer :: Webcam Of 1810T
I've found out that the webcam is a Suyin, I installed drivers from acer website.. and the result is still terrible.
The webcam is so slow, like 1 fps. Even when not in videocall and using acer crystal eye webcam to set it, it's slow, pixelated and sloow.. I don't mind about the colour, yellowish but adjustable, but I do mind about the fps and quality.
I guess it's a driver matter, because the driver installed is the microsoft's standard one. But I couldn't manage to get better results, also some of the settings like auto and white balance or camera control are not selectable.
Acer :: 6920 Webcam Hijacked
I got some great information from the people on here previously and I'm back for more advice.
I have the ACER 6920 Gemstone Blue, it has a built in webcam called Acer Crystal Eye.
As I get older the paranoia gets worse, and lately I've been wondering who is watching me! I have been using Skype, Msn, Yahoo messenger and Facebook to stay in contact with family back home. I am not at all convinced about the secuity of these programs and wonder if I have been hijacked.
How can I check to see if my webcam has been hijacked?
Is there some where that I can look to see if it is in use?
Acer :: 1810T Best Webcam Driver
My Acer 1810T has Windows 7 Home Premium x64 installed and it is using a Microsoft Webcam driver version 6.1.7600.16385 dated 6/21/2006.
On Acer's site, they list 3 Camera drivers for Windows 7 Home Premium x64:
Chicony - 18.104.22.168
liteon - 0.905
Suyin - 22.214.171.124
Acer :: TravelMate 7520 Crystal Eye Webcam
I have a TravelMate 7520 with Crystal Eye Webcam, I had to reinstall my vista. Once this was done my webcam didnt work, it showed camera not found.
I have been playing about with it, which ended up meaning I unstall everything (I think). I have installed loads of drivers and software for the webcam but all failed, the camera just doesnt seem to turn on...
I have taken my screen apart unplugged it, uninstalled software, plugged in and reinstall but nothing..Plus once I have installed the driver, I look in device manager and see nothing relating to my webcam.
what I need to download, how to install and how to check the driver is in place
Acer :: Crystal Eye Webcam/Unknown Device - 5739g
I basically used my webcam every night with Skype to talk to my friends. The very next day, it stops working. Ive literally tried everything. In the device manager, I have an "Unknown Device" listed as a USB. Im 100% sure this use to be my Camera.
I just used the Acer factory CDs to reinstall my OS + Drivers. All the drivers were successfully installed with the exception of the Camera Drivers (because the computer doesnt see a camera)
I tried to download the drivers from the Acer website but (both Chicony and Suyin) and everytime I try to install them a error comes up that says "Camera not found!" I have a laptop so I have no clue how its not finding it.
ive been working on this for hours now and its really getting frustrating. Here are the things ive tried, and if someone knows a solution or a different method I havent tried to fix it, PLEASE let me know
1. Reformatted computer using Acer recovery discs
2. Downloaded and tried to install drivers from acer website (camera not found problem)
3. Put windows in Safe mode, uninstalled unknown device, restarted computer to let it automatically scan/update (still failed)
4. Deleted all pictures from My Pictures
5. Tried using Windows Vista drivers and setting to Vista Compatibility mode (I have windows 7), no avail
6. Uninstalled and reinstalled Unknown Device (aka camera) driver, didnt work
7. Tried the windows update software option, windows said everything was fine (pshhh).
8. Uninstalled unknown device, used the option "scan for hardware changes" still didnt work
9. Installed skype to see if the webcam would be recognized, which it wasnt.
Acer :: 6920G- Webcam, Blue-ray And A Speakers Query Too
I've had this laptop for a day now and am having some issues which I wonder if anyone could help me with.
1. Integrated 'Crystal Eye' webcam
I can't get it to work with Live Messenger. I can only hear the audio from the other person (no video). They also can only hear me and not see me. When I try the Audio/Video tuning wizard my webcam shows fine?
2.Acer Arcade Deluxe
I tried out the Blu-ray drive when I first tried out the laptop and it worked fine. There was a prompt when the Arcade software was first started to inform me that there was a software update available and that if I didn't update then some Blu-ray discs may not play. I ignored the prompt originaly and as I said Blu-ray dics played fine.
I decided to update the software as was recommended but as soon as it was updated, Blu-rays no longer played, nor did normal DVD's. All I got was a multi-coloured blank screen in Arcade and that was it. The disc didn't even spin up.
I uninstalled Arcade and re-installed the original version and it works again. Anyone else had this problem? Any work around?
3. Built-in speakers
The speakers on this laptop sound amazing especially compared to my old Aspire. However, when watching say, a DVD, then whilst the sound is impressive for laptop speakers, speech sounds very off centre (weighted to the right channel). However, all other background sound etc. is separated normally. I notice that the speakers are set a little to the right - could this be the reason?
4. CineDash Media Console
I'm finding the responsiveness of the touch panel hit and miss. Is this the same for everyone else? EG. adjusting the volume - I slide my finger up the curve to turn up the volume and sometimes it works fine and others I have to do it a few times before it responds. Some for the other buttons, like 'ENTER' - sometimes a light touch is all that's needed, other times I have to press it hard.....................
Acer :: 7720g Access Denied When Installing New Webcam In Windows 7

Acer :: [ 1410/1810T/1810TZ] Successful Webcam Update
I took an MSI Wind U100 webcam, it has the classic USB connection you expect for! The connector is at right instead at left like the original one.
-A WindU100 Webcam (1,3 Megapixel, a very good framerate),
-A decent soldering skill
-A lot of patience, and much more crazyness.
I don't want to post a Tut how to do it, you need only to know that pinout is the same and the colours are the same.
11 Black 3.3V
22 Purple D+
33 Red D-
44 Orange GND
Don't care about the fifth (GND too).
You need four wires to move the connection from the right to the left,and some dremel to leave out some "plastic keys" about the old one. Newer is a little thicker that the old one, so dremel the plastic at back of the webcam too.
The WindU100 Webcam has a led to show when it's used, so if you want you can do a hole to see it in the Acer. I didn't: the plastic is white so i see it too...!
A good idea is to change the whole cable if you have the MSI original one, but i didn't dismantle all....
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?
Sony :: F Webcam
problem with my webcam/screen. I just bought this laptop a week ago, and I getting the hunch that this one might be defective. The webcam quality is horrible, I see green dots everywhere when I take a picture. Also, when Im watchimg a movie and I do fullscreen the quality goes bad all of a sudden.
HP/Compaq :: Webcam On My Dv4
my hp webcam. Whenever i open the hp webcam mediasmart software, a window pops up and says that the webcam either isn't connected, or is being used by another program. I've restarted my computer and it's not being used by anything else, but it still says this.
