Acer :: Aspire 7720-6604 (Cdn) Slow Download Speeds

Mar 22, 2008

I was concerned about slow page loading speeds with this new laptop. I had done comparisons with this new laptop and my Toshiba satellite A70, 2.8Ghz Celery, 768MB RAM, Realtec RTL8/810x family Fast Ethenet NIC.

I was concerned enough that I booked a call with an ISP tech who was here today. He tried several download tests with a test site provided by the company and found that the new laptop was download/transfering data at around 200-400Kb/sec while the old laptop was getting download speeds of 1.6Mb/sec.

The AV programs and firewalls were disabled for each of the tests. Tried updating the driver on the new laptop but it had the newest driver available.

I deleted the driver and rebooted with no better results. I have an email out to Acer as of an hour or so ago and am awaiting a response from their tech.

I believe that there is a bad ethernet card/circuit in this laptop.

Acer :: First Impressions Vista Ultimate On 7720-6604 (Cdn)

Mar 14, 2008

It runs like XP with 256MB of memory and this system has 3GB's. The HDD's on this are large WD 160's at 5400rpm, so it cant be them.

I have disable Aero and gotten rid of (uninstalled) the 90day trial Norton.

I am running AVG Free for an AV. Ultimate is a 64bit system

Just opening a new site in IE takes on the average of 15secs or so and initial start up, seems to take forever.

I have went into power management and amended the screen to never turn off and also the HDD's to never turn off.

Before I did this, it went into some sort of sleep/hibernation mode and couldnt figure out how to wake it. I tried using the "sleep mode" at Start>Sleep and it went into sleep fine but when pushing the Power button to re-awaken, I waited about 5 mins and it still didnt awake.

HP Pavilion G6-2260sh Networking :: Slow Download Speed But Upload Is Fine?

Jun 16, 2014

I've got an HP Pavilion g6-2260sh notebook with Windows 8.1 Pro operating system. My problem is that the internet download speed had fallen from 80 Mbits to 3-4 Mbits. The upload speed stayed the same as before, 25 Mbits. My notebook is connected to a router with another notebook and a PC. Those 2 computers have excellent internet speeds. I've reinstalled the operating system, but the issue still persists. After the reinstallation, the speed was fine for maybe an hour and then it dropped to 3-4. I only installed drivers from the hp driver finder, nothing else. I've tried the connection with cable and wi-fi with the same results. The device manager shows 1 Unknown device and 1 missing driver for Ralink_RT3290_Bluetooth_01

Acer :: Aspire 7720-6395 - Overheating

Jan 29, 2009

I purchased my Acer in Dec of 2007. It's worked great except it's overheating problem (got a fan, no more problem). Last month it started intermitently not booting properly, and not coming out of sleep. I "fixed" the sleep problem by telling Vista not to put it to sleep any more. I typically shut it down when I'm finished with it so sleep wasn't an issue for me.

To ellaborate on the booting problem. If I attempt to boot it, the display turns on, and power button turns green, but neither the fan, nor Drive turn on, nor do any of the USB ports get power (I know this because I have an illuminated keyboard, which doesn't illuminate when this problem is occuring). I've waited for as long as an hour and it will never boot. If I hold down the power button for 4 seconds, it turns off. And if I boot it again it boots up properly. Doesn't matter how many times I reboot it after it always comes back up. I've never tested how much time passes before I can't boot it. I also tryed putting it in hibernation manually, that worked twice, the last time it wouldn't wake and had to be rebooted. I've done a check disk on it but all seems fine.

Acer :: Aspire 7720-6395 Review

Dec 15, 2007

I've uploaded my referenced screen grabs here since I ran into difficulties last night. This seemed like the logical solution.

I bought the Acer Aspire 7720-6395 yesterday. I couldn't find any reviews other than those on Best Buy's website (a couple are okay, but none comprehensive), so I hope to contribute to anyone else who might be considering it but unsure. I live an hour from the nearest big city, so any additional details would've made it easier to make the drive.

Forgive me if there are details you don't need or none that you do. I'll do my best.

I won't repeat the specs that Best Buy gives on their website, but I'll shed light on a couple that aren't clear through writing or screen grabs.

It seems that a number of people bought it thinking it had a Blu-Ray writer (BB had something on their site saying so, apparently), but be sure you note that it is only a Blu-Ray ROM drive. I say only...

Oh, and it is also a dual layer DVD writer and CD writer.

It has an integrated webcam and microphone if you're prone to video chatting.

The speakers are in a strip directly under the power and accessory buttons. It boasts "DOLBY DIGITAL LIVE" above the mesh, but they sound like most other decent laptop speakers. Not great, but pretty good all things considered.......................

Acer :: Aspire 7720- Booting And Sound

May 13, 2010

Acer Aspire 7720 I've got. Basically it has both the common boot-up freeze and crackly/distorted sound problems that appear to be common. I understand that the best, albeit riskiest, way to solve these is to flash the bios to a more recent version, which I am prepared to do.

However - the bios upgrades are not available from Acer's own support site, and I don't know where else I can find them, and I have tried.... Is there anyone who can help me locate them? The problems with this laptop are driving me spare, and I really can't afford another, or even another motherboard, just yet.

Acer :: Aspire 7720 T7300 ~ CPU Upgrade

Nov 25, 2008

My aspire is as per topic title a 7720 T7300 (2.0ghz ,800mhz FSB , 4mb L2 cache)

I am running a recent Bios flash so up to 1.43 spec.

Is a CPU upgrade to a T9300...simple just a case of processor pull and new CPU refit?

Will it be of benefit or worthwhile in the firstplace?

As i can get a IntelģCoreô2DuoMobile Processor T9300/2.5GHz/800MHz/6MB

Acer :: Aspire 7720 Speakers Making Bad Noises

Jun 1, 2008

I've had this aspire 7720-6381 for about a week and a half now. I've been very satisfied, and have even been content with the mediocre laptop speakers it contains. I wasn't expecting much in that realm anyways.

The problem I have is that periodically the speakers will make an annoying clicking noise. It's pretty sucky. Even worse, after a time all sound will screw up and a deathly fuzzy roaring sound is all that is heard.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 :: Will Not Complete Updates Download - Unspecified Error 0x80004005

Oct 28, 2014

When updates are posted on Aspire Support Page my Aspire Switch 10 will not complete most downloads I attempt.  It downloads anywhere from 60% to 95% of a particular download, then goes no further even though it indicates it is still downloading.  I have left it in this  "downloading" state for 10 minutes with no further progress.  Of the few smaller zip files it did download completely, I got an error message of "Unspecified Error # 0x80004005" when it tried to unzip some of those.

Acer Aspire 7720-6569 :: Sudden Shutdown - Power Icon Shows Full Charge And Plugged In

Oct 6, 2014

 My battery has not held more than about a 45-second charge since 2009; however, the AC adaptor seems to work fine, and the Power Management icon always tells me that I have a full (i.e., about 45-second) charge and that the AC adaptor is plugged in.  Today, just after I disabled the Acer Tour Reminder, CyberLink PlayMovie, and Microsoft Office OneNote (because I never use them and I wanted a faster startup), I moved some program icons that I didn't need or that were already on my Quick Launch tool bar into the Recycle Bin.  Suddenly, the notebook make sort of an electronic squeaking sound and immediately shut down--black screen; no lights.  
 
I unplugged it, checked to ensure the battery was properly seated, felt to make sure it did not feel hot anywhere, plugged it in, saw that the lights were showing on the adaptor and on the front left edge of the notebook, turned it on, and selected normal start; it started up again.  It ran for at least three minutes (which, because of the battery, it would not unless the AC adaptor was functioning) and then, after I moved a few more icons to the Recycle Bin, it suddenly shut down again in the same manner.  
 
I started it again and it has now been running long enough for me to look up my Acer Forum registration information and update it after resetting my password.  I am writing this on another notebook.  The Acer is still running, but I want to ensure it doesn't shut down on me when I am in the middle of a project.

Acer :: Aspire One Is So Very Very Slow

Jan 30, 2009

Last week I bought a small Aspire One 1.6 Ghtz Wind. XP with 1 gig ram and it is the slowest laptop I have ever owned.

I boot up and get on line, and then I have a 30 - 40 sec wait every single time I try to change screens.

The problem is not booting up, or even getting on line, but it takes too long to get from screen to screen once I am on line.

Before I throw this away, as I can not return it, please, what do I do with this $300 doorstop?

Acer :: Aspire One Slow On Battery ...

Jan 11, 2009

My netbook runs very slow when on battery power. I've tried every power option and while "Home/Office" seems to work the best (even better than "Always On"), it still runs slower than when plugged in. I'd like to get the same performance on battery that I get when plugged in, even though I understand I may have to sacrifice battery life. Is there a way to do this, or at least to improve battery performance?

Acer :: Aspire 5536 Slow Booting

Nov 16, 2009

I have a brand new Acer Aspire 5536 Notebook. It came pre-shipped with Vista which I did not want.

So I tried a fresh install of Win7 - formatted drive etc,. Machine takes 5+ mins to boot so I put this down to a compatibility issue and tried XP. However I have the same problem, fresh install with only updates installed and it takes forever to boot (even longer than Win7).

Once booted performance is ok (in Win7 it was near perfect). Any ideas, I am beginning to think it is defective.

Acer :: Slow Brand New Aspire 7530

Mar 9, 2009

Why is my brand new Acer Aspire 7530 so slow?

CPU: AMD Turion X2 Ultra ZM80 (2.1 GHz)
L2-Cache: 2x1 MiB
RAM: 4 GB DDR2
HDD: 320 GB (rpm 5400)
Nvidia GeForce 9400M Hybrid SLI (256 MB)

I have an HP Pavilion dv6827, which I bought last summer, and it is so much quicker.

CPU: AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 (2.0 GHz)
L2-Cache: 2x512 KB
RAM: 4 GB DDR2
HDD: 160 GB (rpm 5400)
Nvidia GeForce 8400M (256 MB)

I can't figure out why the Acer Aspire is not performing as well as the HP Pavilion.
