My laptop is an Acer Aspire 6935G with Intel C2D P8400 2.26GHz (1066MHz FSB) and 4GB DDR3 RAM. OS is Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
Under the memory tab in CPU-Z, the DRAM Frequency shows as 399MHz. However, the maximum bandwith for the memory under the SPD tab shows as 533MHz. If I'm correct this means my RAM is running at 800MHz instead of 1066MHz.
I've read other threads mentioning this problem and a solution was a BIOS update to v1.10. My current BIOS is v1.05, which has been on my laptop since new.
I've never updated a BIOS before and therefore reluctant in case anything goes wrong. The laptop is running fine with Vista.
I'm having slowdowns after 10/20 minutes playing games like COD World at War and Red Alert 3, and the fan wont stop... even with the games in minimal configuration... Anyone have a clue of this? a fix maybe? I've played COD 4 Modern Warfare and it never gave me this problems ever...
anyone can confirm that these models really have the GDDR3 and DDR3 video ram and memory ram for the said models......coz i am quite confused because the HP dv5's and dv7's have the same specs as these models but the videocard of the hp's is not gddr3 and ddr3 respectively......what am i missing here..........are the video cards and memory ram types the same or acer is better coz its ddr3 already compared to the hp's ddr2 only memories?
coz right now am torn between this two brands....acer seems better in spec sheets coz it says the video n ram are both ddr3 already....thats better right??....anyways hope someone can shed light for me.....
when i turn on my laptop this error appears when i log on to windows. it appears to be having a conflict with acer eAudio Manager as when i switch to another plan(like,games,or music>rock or smtn from the list) it doesn't change anything.and that error appears again.the sound was way better before,and i even had that 5.1 output,which i miss...

Cinebench 10 score is 5472.
I'm not so much into gaming, but I like games like Left 4 Dead and I was able to play it with this 9600M GT with nice graphics and anti-aliasing (2x).
NEW 12-01-2009 COD 5 Bench I've made a bench of COD5 and that was quite good. I've let all the default settings but use native resolution (1366x768) Vertical Sync and AA2x. I've used FRAPS to get the frame rate and the average was around 30-35fps, the lower rates was about 18fps during multiple explosions close to 4 tanks. We still can get more fps by lowering the resolution to 1280x720, but I wanted to test with the native resolution................
The entertainment part on the laptop on the left hand side the touchpad has somewhat frozen so it is impossible to use, it has put itself ontohold somehow and now will not work, i have attempted restarting the laptop and shutting it down completly still the touch pad will not work.
While eagerly scouting the Zs, I've greatly enjoyed this forum for the past few weeks. I've been stopping by (ok stalking) my local Sony Style store to check them out in person, and became curious about a discrepancy.
Does anyone know off hand if there is an inherent memory speed or bandwidth difference between the 520m and 540m (or 620m)? I haven't noticed anything official from Intel or the Sony specs, other than they all use DDR3/1066 sticks.
Last week I snapped a picture (rather fuzzy cellphone, sorry) of the WEI screen for the lone silver GX/S (i5-520m) floor model. It shows a lagging score of 5.9 on memory, which doesn't jive with other performance scores mentioned on this forum (that I could find).....
I have a problem with my Acer Aspire 5520M ... I it getting very very hot, about 90-91 degrees when I use it, then the fans turns on and it get's colder. It does this A LOT, and when I game i shifts between laggin and running fine. It is very very annoying, and I have NO idea what is wrong.. I even have problems running warcraft 3 in 800x600x16, which I think should be running fine all the time.
Have any of you had the same problem or have any ideas how to fix this? Should I send it to repair?
Another question, is it possible to make the CPU run max speed all the time? It is not possible to change this in the BIOS and don't know how to change it, it seems to go down to 800mzh all the time even when power is needed.
is there any way to control the fan speed of this lap top?
I have tried speedfan, rivatuner, even tried the undervolting option with RMClock (no success - the CPU was running at the lowest voltage already).
One option did present some signs of activity - Acer Asprie One (!) Fan Control utility. However, it only switched off the fan completely. Besides that, it was quite unstable and sometimes forgot to turn the fan back on after the threshold of temperature was crossed again.
By the way: computer doesn't get hot at all. The feel is quite cool, as Speedfan utility indicates these temperatures:

I have had this laptop for about a year now and ever since I bought it it has had major throttling issues while gaming. I have tried many ways to make it run cooler with no such luck (It runs at about 95*C when playing most games) . The fan never runs at 100%, only aboout 70% (from what I can hear) so I was wondering if their was a way I could control the fan in order to run it at 100%.
I have a Western Digital 1TB USB 3.0 external drive. I am connecting it to the correct (blue) USB 3.0 port on my Acer Aspire 5755-6647 laptop which runs Windows 7 x64.
Upon connection, I get the "This device can perform faster: This USB Mass Storage Device can transfer information faster if you connect it to a Super-Speed USB 3.0 port" message. When copying files off the drive, I get about 32 MB/s, which corresponds to USB 2.0 speeds.
I have tried disabling USB power management in the USB 3.0 Host Controller Utility. I have tried uninstalling the device and reinstalling it. The cable I am using came with the drive and is a USB 3.0 cable. I have the newest Renesas USB 3.0 driver installed (22.214.171.124). I have also tried using an older Renesas driver. My BIOS is up to date (P5WE0121).
The first time I connected this drive to my laptop, it was on a USB 2.0 port (I had for some reason misremembered which side of the laptop had the 3.0 port and didn't check for blue). As I said, though, I've uninstalled the device completely. I suspect that Windows may be "remembering" the device and installing it with the 2.0 driver.
Considering an Aspire One right now because it is less expensive than the others. I have a 512MB RAM (DDR2-PC5300) and 80GB 2.5" SATA HDD from my Thinkpad (which I upgraded both). So, I think maybe I could buy the Aspire One the cheapest version (8GB I guess).
So, is it can be done? I know that there is SATA version of the Aspire One but not sure the connector will be there in the SSD version. Try to google it but found only SSD upgrade....
I recently upgraded the ram in my 5315 with 2x1GB 5300 DDR2 sticks. Ever scince i did the upgrade i have had the Memory Management Blue screen about once every 3days. The sitcks are installed correctly and ive even tried swapping the order of the sitcks in the slots and i still have this problem. running Vista Basic 32-Bit
I recently purchased a 5517-5779 from best buy. Got a nice deal on it and i think im starting to see why...its only a 160gb HD which im kinda kicking myself for getting. To start with i was sitting at about 105gb with nothing of my own installed.
a week later im sitting at 99.6gb. i have still installed nothing. i have used many HP's and havent had this problem.. there seems to be a memory leak somewhere. Are these prominent with Acer products? I should have familiarized myself with Acer a bit more before purchasing one of their products. If i could resolve this issue i would be 100% satisfied with my newest purchase.
ETA-The pc has already had the geek squads "optimization and restoration" done.
I have an Aspire E1-571-6650 that is about 1.5 yrs old. I am getting messages that I am almost out of memory (currently 4GB of memory). Not sure what is using up the memory as I don't do any gaming or graphics. I do use the internet, facebook, MS Office, MapQuest, Google Earth, etc.
Beside why am I running out of memory? Can I add memory to this notebook? Got plenty of disk space but might want to add an additional 4GB or more of internal. Possible?
an Acer Aspire 5570z was gifted to me by my father and I own it since 1.5 Year and it works cool, the notebook came with 512MB RAM and I updated it to 512x2 a year back and every thing worked cool, but now, I finally decided to buy a 2 GB RAM, I bought a 2 GB DDR RAM and inserted in my laptop, the laptop works good but problem is that now when I go to CMOS setup, it shows up as Extended memory to 2048MB but I own Windows Vista Ultimate (French) 32BITS ; but my Windows only shows up as I have only 1.00GB of memory!
I wanted to open my box to check the ease (or not) of a memory upgrade but had a helluva sweaty time trying to get the compartment cover off.
After undoing the 4 screws and getting it open a bit, it still seemed VERY firmly held in the vicinity of the fan vent area.
The plastic cover is pretty thin and I was terrified of breaking it, so tried a little prying, a bit of heaving, some levering, tugging, jabbing, swearing, praying etc. I even had the computer overturned and was looking for a way through the keyboard where I was convinced that a bolt must be holding the memory cover down.
Anyway it DID finally come loose but it was a bit scary, so I've made a couple of scans and added some notes on the lugs which were holding it in place in the hope that it might prove useful to others in the same predicament.
One scan is of the actual lid and the other is of what's inside, in case you get to feel like pushing a screwdriver in there - (don't).
