Acer :: Aspire 8920G - Black Screen -> Alt+f10 Failure

Jul 27, 2009

I have an Aspire 8920G laptop.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled (with no installation nor recovery disks delivered).

I accidently hit the arcade button on the cinedash panel, instead of the power button. The computer started directly up into arcade deluxe, after a short install. Nice feature

I thought, and choose to exit arcade through the exit feature. Then I noticed that the computer prepared to hibernate, but instead it shut off after it finished.

After turning the computer on, a small complaint about improper closing the computer popped up, and I choose to start windows normally. Now the boot loader ran, and when I expected the logon screen, instead I met a black screen with a working mouse cursor. I eventually had to force power down, since crtl alt delete didn't work.

Since then, all boot options, safe mode etc leads to the same black screen.

Vista looks like it's going to boot normally then goes to a black screen with a working mouse pointer. The hard disk light just pulses every couple seconds.

I tried extracting the battery but it doesn't work.

I tried to alt+f10 - Vista Recovery page, so it gives me menu called "Edit Boot Options". There is the path to winload.exe and this:
"Partition: 2
Hard Disk: b8f0ffa4

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
]"
That's all what I have when I press ALT + F10.

I could type "Enter" = nothing happened
"Esc" = shutdown the system
"F8" = go to recovery page.

Hit f8:

Goes to a "Vista system recovery" or something like that, i'm not quite sure what its name was. Anyway it had about 6 options, including "Get windows to check for and correct the faults on your disk" in a little bit more high tech talk. And "Restore to a earlier point". Since the "Checking and correct faults" said it was recommended, i thought i'd go for that.

It ran its tool, told me to click the restart button. Runs it again, tells me to restart again.

And now it enters its final state - Its virtually dead :|. If i turn it on, it will go to the black screen, that talks about an improper shutdown, with the options for Safe Mode, Safe mode with networking.. etc. Any of these 4 options all result in the same black screen displaying only the mouse cursor.

I was not trying to install or upgrade nothing, was not trying to change form vista to xp or so.

I have not deleted any hidden partition (as far as I know...)

Acer :: Aspire Timeline 3810tz Vista To XP Downgrade

Aug 28, 2009

I own an Acer Aspire Timeline 3810tz. My laptop did not come with an optical drive and now I'm wondering how I might go about downgrading it from Vista to Windows XP? I have already purchased a USB Cd-Rom drive and skimmed through some nLite articles, but I'm still getting the blue screen 0x0000007B error. I'm guessing it has to do something with the SATA/AHCI driver but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

*During my XP install I changed the SATA Mode from AHCI to IDE

*I think I might be using the wrong driver, but I'm not entirely sure.

Acer :: Video Card No Longer Detected Or Installing Drivers

Apr 13, 2009

I'm working on this Acer Aspire AS7520-5311 laptop, on Vista 32, with a NVIDIA GeForce 8400M. Trying to tweak some graphic settings last night somehow I guess I deleted the video drivers for the nvidia card. I went into the device manager and deleted all of the display drivers. When it rebooted it tried to install it again. For some odd reason, it installed a "Standard VGA adaptor". So my desktop resolution is back to the former settings but any remotely graphic demanding programs will not run. I've went to Acer's website and nvidias website and cannot find the exact NVIDIA GeForce 8400M driver. I've tried everything listed under the model number on acer's website and it will install, reboot, but when comes back up. It still only shows the same standard vga adaptor.

This did not come with a restore disk for some odd reason!

Now before I just blame Vista, transfer all of my data, erase it, and then put XP on it.

I'm sure If I could somehow find the correct driver for the video card it would help.

Acer :: 8920g BIOS

May 8, 2009

I require some help on repairing a bad bios flash for this laptop. The problem started after clearing the bios from with in windows and then using acer esettings to create another password which would save the bios but it seems it did not save properly and resulted in a bad flash.

The laptop no longer boots up, it just hangs with a black screen.

I have downloaded the updated bios file from acer web page and used various methods for other acer models which use a usb floppy with the crisis recovey disk and rename 114.rom bios file to bios.wph but cant seem to trigger the laptop into booting from the floppy using win+b/esc and fn+b/esc.

I have also tried putting the bios file onto a cd with various different file names but again it doesnt want to boot from cd either.

Acer :: Upgrading 8920G GPU

Sep 26, 2008

Purchased my 8920G-8332Q32Bn a few months back and at the time, the GeForce 9650 wasn't available so I settled for the 9500M GS. I find its performance very sluggish and read somewhere that these lappies come with "MXM-II" meaning the GPU's are swappable? Would anyone know of the costs associated and if it's even possible.

I don't know if there's something faulty with my GPU. I installed Microsoft FS9.1 with AF at 4x and AA at 8 and used to average 40fps. Now, under the same settings, same scenery, same amount of scenery, I barely make 15fps. I've tried resetting all settings in FS and the Nvidia Control panel but to no avail. I do notice that the laptop is much much hotter than before.

Any information that was not saved before the computer went into hibernation will be lost.

Acer :: Audiodg.exe - 8920G

Apr 12, 2009

Since the start of this year I own an Acer 8920G laptop. Playing games (WoW) is almost impossible due to the fact the AudioDG process is kicking in randomly eating loads of processor time and messing up the sound.

I've read several threads about this problem but never saw an actual solution. I am NOT going to disable any sounds effects on my laptop nor am I going to disable my microphone. Imho that's ridicilous.

So, before I sent this laptop straight back to his creator(s), anyone knows a) whats the actual root cause of this problem, and b) anyone knows a solution.

Acer :: 8920g Owners

Oct 9, 2008

I have recently purchased an acer 8930. To be honest the display is pretty rubbish. Alot of backlight streaks.

I have tried to alter the display settings in the nvidia control panel but it won't let me do this. I can slide the bars up and down the % line but nothing on the display changes.

I phoned acer support but they weren't aware of this problem and the guy thought that acer have locked this option.

I was wondering if this is
A. A fault with my laptop
B. Acer doesn't allow this
C. Can do it on the 8920g but not the 8930

Acer :: Aspire 4736z Video Card Upgrade/add

Oct 1, 2009

i just recently bought this laptop and was first satisfied with it's features.

But then.... 64MB of system video memory?

Come on Acer. And so I was thinking if I could add some graphics like buying a decent video card for it.

I heard that video cards for laptops are in PCI express.

Can my Acer use it?

IF and only IF this Acer Aspire doesn't have the ability to use a new video card, is there any other way I could improve its graphics like getting some of the built-in shared memory and putting it in the video?

Acer :: Aspire 8930G / 9650m GT Video Driver

Apr 13, 2010

I have bought nVidia GeForce 9650M GT 1GB DDR2 MXM II Graphics Card from ebay. Aspire 8930G is listed by the seller as one of the laptops that supports the card.

I have changed the card very carefully. My previous card was 9600m GS DDR2 512mb MXM II.

At the moment the laptop does recognize the card, however sees it as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

Here is my GPU-Z screen shot.
[url]

And this is what it should look like after installing nVidia video driver. (So I believe)
w ww.aliexpress.com/product-fm-img/288728719-NVIDIA-GeForce-9650M-GT-Graphics-Card-Acer-Asus-wholesalers.html

However when I try to install nVidia drivers from the nVidia website, the setup informs me the following: "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."

Has anyone tried 9650m GT with their Acer laptops? Did it work? Does anyone have a solution in my case?
