Acer :: Aspire 7720G Memory Cover

Sep 20, 2008

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).

Acer :: Replacing 9300m With 9600m GT 7720g How To Remove Cover

Acer :: Aspire 7720g Network

Oct 23, 2008

I have recently bought the Acer Aspire 7720g laptop and kinda like the spec. Though I have had 2 major annoying issues with it. The first is that it would never boot at first attempt after an overnight shutdown. This was resolved by installing BIOS version 1.43 after finding a solution on this forum.

The second is one that I can not for the life of me find the reason. The network connections of the laptop will stop working after a few minutes and requires several restarts to make stable. This only seems to happen to the wireless connection. It does not drop signal it just seems to disable.

Yet I have unticked the 'allow Windows to turn of the wireless device to save power' thing. Updated all drivers and BIOS to the most current found version. Also when the wireless network 'turns off' I can not get into network and sharing centre or use the 'Connect To' option, they just both hang.

Even turning the wireless off and back on with the laptop switch makes no difference.

Acer :: Aspire 7720G Upgrade

Dec 6, 2009

Recently I had a little upgrade adventure of my Aspire 7720G, replaced the nV 8400M GS with 9600M GT 512MB, added 4GB DDR2 @ 667MHz, and then I decided to upgrade the CPU also. I was thinking about T9500 for a long time, then I came across Intel's X9000 CPU (OEM, not the ES). I installed it, BIOS recognized it, Windows also (Win 7 Ultimate x64), but then I noticed something strange. It works only at 1.2GHz, in idle and in 100% load, when it should be at 2.8GHz. I tried my luck with power schemes, I have the latest BIOS, updated drivers and no change at all. CPU-Z reports it works at 1.2GHz all the time with a multiplier x6, it should be at x14. RMClock didn't help me at all, CPUgenie also. Old CPU was T7300, it was also working at 1.2GHz with multiplier x6 in idle but in 100% load the multiplier jumped to x10 and it worked at full speed; 2GHz. Windows Experience Index with T7300 was 5.1, for X9000 is 3.9!

Acer :: ( Aspire 7720G ) 2 X Hard Drive

May 4, 2009

In the specs listed on the website, and on the sticker on the laptop itself:

320 GB Dual HDD
(160 GBx2)

I am going insane, on the device manager it says I have two HDs, but I think one of them has been partitioned, the one with the windows data on (C drive) the HDs in my computer are displayed as this:

I've been told of a program call 'Raid' or something, but I'm really not sure what it actually does.

I just want to know if the two smaller HDs are partitioned and if possible, how to join them up again,

Acer :: ASPIRE 7720G Audio And Clock

Feb 18, 2009

my Acer's been having trouble playing audio and keeping time. The clock problem's simple: ever since I got it it's lost time at a variable rate, averaging at probably around a minute every hour. Nothing I've done has managed to fix this, except in the short-term by updating it to Internet time.

More complicated have been the audio issues. These vary in severity and come and go to an extent, and I have had some success fixing them. Basically, since I got the computer, audio's been at least slightly choppy while playing videos over a period of time. Generally just playing audio files themselves work fine (unless something resource heavy going on in the background), and bizarrely playing videos through my browser (say on YouTube) has always been perfect, regardless of site, length or quality of video. But when it comes to playing anything from the hard drive regardless of whether it's WMP or VLC and regardless of bit rate, sooner or later the audio screws up. This can be either to the extent that it'll glitch every couple of seconds, that I'll lose sync with the video slightly, or loss of sound entirely. In fact, the first time I downloaded a video podcast on iTunes I was left wondering why the opening scene was so eerily silent for so long!

Now initially I was able to fix this by updating the BIOS to v1.45 and after that pretty much everything was good. It would still glitch occasionally on HD movies, and certainly still didn't like too much going on in the background, but generally nothing I couldn't handle. At least until now, when all the same problems have come back to haunt me worse than ever. I tried going on to v1.43, but no dice. And now I'm back on v1.45 in the vain hope that re-installing it might make some difference. But alas. I've looked at performance in task manager and it's ticking along at about 16% CPU usage, so nothing untoward there either. It seems like a BIOS problem because updating the BIOS fixed it, but now it's screwing up again under that same BIOS and with nothing untoward going on in the background or hitting the CPU too hard I'm totally stumped.

Basically, is there anything else I might try software wise, or is it time to give Acer a call while I'm still in warranty?

Acer :: Overclocking GeForce 9500M GS On Aspire 7720G

Jan 18, 2010

Over-clocking with RivaTuner. Right now I'm at 500Mhz for core, 1Ghz for shader and 425MHz for RAM.

On idle graphics card is at about 63C and processor at 33C with fan off.

To put some load on system, I used Intel BurnIn standard test and two instances of 64bit version of fluidsGL.exe from nVidia's Cuda SDK (acording to GPU-Z, the load on graphics card is about 93%). Mandelbrot.exe does put some more load on graphics card, but it closes as soon s application looses focus, so it isn't as convenient.

When I run tests, temperatures are around 85C for graphics card and 65C for processor.

I wanted to ask you how much should I overclock the graphics card and what are safe temperatures? I plan to use this laptop for few more years, so I do not wan to cook my graphics card.

Acer :: Aspire 7720G WLan And Booting After Sleep

Oct 21, 2008

I bought an ACER Aspire 7720G Intel Core 2 Duo with Vista SP1 3 weeks ago and have now some problems with my WLan and with booting after sleep. WLan only works when I restart the computer after swiching on the WLan connection either by pressing the WLan button or by activating the connection in "networks and sharing center" (at least it works then, but it's annoying to restart the computer all the time). Since I use WLan at home I get a message while booting the system (Broadcom UNDI PXE.... Client... MAC ADDR:... GUID... DHCP ...not found..blabla). I use a Lan connection at work and here I have no problems yet. My second problem is that my computer really stays asleep after I woke it up from sleep or just if I would not use it some minutes. It does not show any system related information anymore and I can only restart it again. I have looked up my BIOS and it is Version 1.44 (read the thread about the BIOS problems),

I have an Acer Aspire 7720G which has a Nvidia GeForce 9300M G 256MB graphics card.

Other specs - Core 2 Duo T5750 (2.0 Ghz), 3Gb Ram 667MHz

I've installed a clean version of Vista Ultimate but it doesn't recognise that there's a graphics card present. I've tried to instal the drivers from the Nvidia website but it aborts because it can't find the hardware.

I've also tried installing Vista SP1 but still no avail.

Acer :: Cracked Back Cover On My Aspire 9410

Dec 5, 2008

I've found a source for the replacement part through EXTENSIVE research- and found an online user manual. I am not used to building/opening laptops, so I don't know whether
I'll need special tools to replace the broken back cover; are there any other parts I may need (such as hinges, antenna WiFi).

Is this even a job I should take on or is it pretty easy?

The LCD is fine- it's JUST the plastic cover I need to replace.

Acer :: Aspire One HDD And Memory Upgrade

Oct 15, 2008

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....

Acer :: Aspire 5517 Memory

Oct 18, 2009

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.

Acer Aspire E1-571-6650 :: Almost Out Of Memory

Sep 12, 2014

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?

Acer :: Adding Second HDD To 7720G

Nov 13, 2008

When reviewing this machine I found that it had a second HDD drive bay which I thought would be helpful if I ever needed extra space, that time has come. I made the mistake of buying an identical toshiba drive to put in the second bay as when I opend the second drive bay, it was totally empty, no chasis, no connector, or any sign of where I could attach a connector to the motherboard. Why promote a second drive bay if it can't be used; or can it?

Acer :: Aspire 5580 CPU/memory Upgrades

Sep 18, 2007

I have a new(ish) Aspire 5580-6974 notebook:
Core 2 Duo (T5300) 533 MHz
1GB RAM, etc.

I just bought a 2GB DDR2 PC2-5300 dual channel memory kit; that should be a relatively simple upgrade.

I want to eventually upgrade the CPU to the T7600, which is 677 MHz. The intel 945GM chipset should support that, but is it just a matter of dropping in the new CPU? Or are there changes to be made on the motherboard (jumpers, etc)? There doesn't seem to be any such setting options in the BIOS.

Acer :: 7720g Fan Crackle With Games

May 12, 2009

Having some issues with my laptop, worked fine to begin with but recently it's not be performing as smoothly as it should or as i'd expect.

Usually what happens is, i'd load a game - any game - it would run ok for ~1 min or maybe two, then the secondary fan will kick in (very loudly) and the game will jutter and FPS would drop from say 30-50 to 5-10, the sound will begin to crackle and it's just not useable.

I've so far found a way around this and its turning the Processor Speed in the empowering technology tab to "low", obviously the laptop doesnt run as fast as it would but it doesnt tend to go crazy on me whenever I try to use it for anything more than Typing.

Acer :: Aspire 5315 X3100 Memory Allocation

Feb 16, 2009

I recently got an Aspire 5315 laptop and have been slowly getting it set up to run XP instead of Vista. However, the one problem I am having at the moment is with the Intel X3100 Graphics Accelerator. I have looked all over the internet and can't seem to find any info on how I can define the memory that is allocated to the card, it's all well and good the card using dynamic memory allocation but it's not allocating enough memory. I want to have a fixed 128MB dedicated to the graphics but I can't see any way of doing this either via the Intel software or the BIOS.

I thought I ought to be able to assign a minimum memory amount via the BIOS but graphics memory is locked on my BIOS setting. Would flashing to a later BIOS fix this?

Acer :: Aspire 3690-2970 Where Is Memory Located

Jul 26, 2008

Have a new 3690-2970 with 512 memory Vista Home basic and it runs extremely slow. It has only been on the internet to do MS updates so I know it is not infected with spyware causing it to run slowly. I was thinking a memory upgrade would help.

I got DDR2 533 SO-DIMM, 200-pin memory for it 1 gig but can't for the life of me determine where the memory chip is located

I have looked in two areas on the back of the notebook and can't find it. I looked under Hardrive. and then there is another small panel with one screw but when I opened that there was just this chrome box in there.

Question 2 once I find it can I use both the 512 and 1gig together or only the one 1 gig chip?

I tried locating a tech manual on this notebook and none of the links showed manuals for this model.
