Acer :: Aspire AS 1410 Slow To Boot Windows 7

Sep 24, 2009

I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on my Acer Aspire AS1410. Maybe it's normal, but the hard drive LED is solid on for about 30 seconds before it boots into Windows 7 during the floating windows screen. Is this normal?

Acer :: Windows 7 Upgrade On Aspire 1410

Dec 18, 2009

I am trying get Windows 7 installed on my 1410 but since there is no optical drive it is a real pain. Got windows 7 installed by doing a clean install using a usb drive. Now the problem is I cannot install the Acer software and drivers that acer included on their upgrade disc. I tried running the program from my external hard drive but that does not work since it says to insert the disk. ...why can't they make it easier? All the applications and drivers are on the disk but I have no idea which to install since the disc contains files for all their models. Why would acer not make thier upgrade disc a download or something for their computers without an optical drive?

Acer :: Windows Tax Refund For Notebook ( Aspire 1410/1810T)

Oct 21, 2009

Overview:
If you have never heard about Windows tax, Windows refund or anyone ever getting refund for Windows OS then perhaps it is time to look it up.

I don't think many people are aware of the fact that it is possible (and you have the all the rights to) to get a refund for Windows OS if you aren't planning to use it.

Getting Windows OS refund is like returning unused/unneeded product to get your money back. For example, if you are using Linux on your computer, why should you pay for Windows OS? Or, if your study institution provides FREE premium Windows OS, why should you pay for the crippled one that comes with your computer? Why should you even be forced to use Windows?

I decided not to pay for Windows OS. It is in the principle.

Please note: The key in getting Windows OS refund is in DECLINING the EULA agreement the first time computer boots up (or not turning computer on at all). If you accepted the EULA you are out of luck!

Here is how I got Windows OS refund from Acer Canada:
I purchased my Acer Aspire 1410 from Canadian Staples Business Depot. For 5 days I played around with it by booting Ubuntu Linux from SDHC card to make sure it was working correctly, there were no defects, etc, and after making the final decision of keeping the notebook, I picked up the phone and called Acer Technical Support (1-866-706-2237).

After getting a hold for an agent I explained that I would like to get a refund for Windows Vista Home Premium that came pre-installed on my laptop and quoted EULA agreement:

Quote:

By using the software, you accept these terms [of EULA agreement]. If you do not accept them, do not use the software. Instead, contact the manufacturer or installer to determine their return policy for a refund or credit...................

Acer Aspire One D255E :: Windows 7 Starter - Slow And Unresponsive

Nov 19, 2014

I'm working on this Netbook for my parents. It has been used VERY little since new, has all the Updates installed,
 
There are NO programs installed outside of the Factory Programs except for MS Security Essentials, and Maliwarebytes.
 
That said, it is VERY SLOW and sometimes UNRESPONSIVE to keyboard commands.  I know this isn't a high level PC, but is there anything I can do to speed it up so we can search eBay, Facebook and other sites.  No hard computing is needed, just basic simple functions.  It's just to slow now and basically no one will use it.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: SSD Slow Boot Windows 7 On T520

Jun 3, 2011

I have replaced  my old sata disk with a ssd disk . Intel 520 240 gb. on my  T520. I have a Windows 7 and a minor Linux partition. Dual boot. I have moved the old image  with Arconis True HD.
 
However, there is a HUGE difference in boot times between Windows  and Linux.
 
Windows is 1 min and 35 sec with windows logo until login screen appears. Then additional 20 seconds.

Linux is 7-10 seconds from Lenovo sign in bios until I'm ready to go. Off course I did not expect Windows to boot  as fast as Linux, but things has worsened after the change.
 
When Windows is up and running  the SSD disk is preforming in the same speedy way as under Linux. It is just the boot situation which is terrible. AHCI is enabled .

Acer :: Aspire 1410- RAM

Nov 21, 2009

I have an old Sony Vaio VGN-FS742/W and just got an Acer Aspire 1410. The 1410 has a 2GB PC2-5300 (333 MHz) stick of RAM. The Vaio has a 1GB stick of PC2-4300 (266MHz) RAM.

I've read that running two RAM sticks of different speeds makes them both run at the speed of the slowest stick. Could any advise whether my 1410's performance would be better by adding the 1GB from the Vaio to have 3GB RAM running at 266MHz, or just keep the 2GB already in the Acer running at the quicker 333MHz?

Acer :: Aspire 1410 Thoughts

Mar 8, 2010

I purchased the Acer Aspire 1410-2920 less than two weeks ago, and I seem to be having some issues with mine. I'd love to know if anyone here has experienced these issues as well. I've been using it and have been enjoying it, but now I'm having second thoughts with it and am considering exchanging it for something else. I'd rather not go the exchanging route, but it's something I'm seriously thinking about.

-- ISSUE #1 / LOOSE HINGES --
As posted in another thread created by me about weak hinges on my1410, I'm currently on my second one since the first one had loose hinges. The hinges on my newer one are better but definitely not as firm/strong as I'd like them. Is this normal? Is there any way I can try tightening them myself?

-- ISSUE #2 / HEAT ISSUES --
It gets freakin' hot after only using it for 20-30 minutes. Is that normal? I have the 1810tray application installed, and even if I have the fan set on the highest setting it gets to about 55-57 degrees Celsius. Why does it get so damn hot? All I have running at most times is Firefox and possibly iTunes, but usually not more than two applications. I do notice, though, that it gets incredibly warm when I'm watching video podcasts or movies (MP4s). Anyone else experiencing heat issues on theirs? I've never used a laptop in my life (which I've been using for 15+ years) that gets as warm/hot as this 1410. Is there something I can do to turn down the heat?

-- ISSUE #3 / DOESN'T SIT FLAT --
When it's sitting on a flat surface, all four rubber points on the bottom don't sit flush. The front fright rubber foot doesn't touch the surface, so when you're typing on it there's a very slight rocking motion. When I type it makes the screen rock/wiggle. It's hard to describe it, but it's quite bothersome. Does this happen with anyone else? I can provide a video clip of it if needed, just have to take video of it.

Acer :: Aspire 1410 CPU Upgrade

Dec 1, 2009

I read a great review on the 1410 and decided to buy it. Been very happy with it, but discovered that it was the Celeron 743 and not the Core 2 Solo. I didn't realize that until I bought it from Newegg; just thought there was only one CPU offered.

So, my question is, can I upgrade the CPU? If so, what CPUs can I use and has anyone taken an 1410/1810 apart and posted pics or a guide?

Acer :: Wireless On Aspire 1410

Nov 1, 2009

I recently purchased an aspire 1410 and have found the wireless card to be extremely unstable. Unless I am standing within 3 ft. of the modem/router, I lose the signal.

Not what you imagine when you purchase a netbook to use around the house. And I have had another notebook that picked up the signal flawlessly, so this is either the wireless card in this machine or a driver issue.

Acer :: Aspire 1410 Owners

May 2, 2010

I recently purchased an Acer 1410 and have a few questions to other owners
1. The machine comes with 2GB. To those who upgraded to 4GB with Windows 7 and the Celeron 743 processor, did you notice
any performance improvements?
2. If I were to upgrade the RAM, I'm still not sure the specs of the modules I need. The 1GB modules in my machine are from Elpida with numerical writing
1rx8 pc2 6400s 666. If anyone knows the pin-out and other specs of these modules, please share them. Even better if you can recommend specific
modules for upgrading to 4GB.
3. I wiped my machine clean and installed a licensed copy of Windows 7 Professional. Since doing so, Windows doesn't automatically resume when
I open the lid. I have to press the power button. I can't seem to find any setting in Windows-7 to correct this.
4. There are 4 led lights on the edge of the laptop that shine directly into my face. Some of them blink from time to time and get annoying.
Any way of turning off these status lights without hacking the motherboard?
5. One of the applications on the Acer site under Support is called Acer Launch Manager. I installed this along with the drivers Acer provides on their
support page. What the heck is Launch Manager. The window that pops up when clicking on the program
says if press the P key, it will launch different multimedia applications.

Acer :: How Is The Screen Quality Of The Aspire 1410

Acer :: Aspire 1410 Duplicate Model #- AC Adapter

Dec 19, 2009

I recently picked up a nice 1410, the 12" version. Looking around on Acer's site it appears they used this name in the past for a 14" laptop as well? Is the new 1410 the laptop people are discussing in the other threads with the Timeline?

The primary reason I ask is because I'd like to buy another AC adapter off Ebay, and it seems many that come up for the 1410 may be for the old laptop. Is there some other model or part number I should be searching for?

Acer :: Can't Load Windows 7 X64 On 1410

Oct 23, 2009

I have been trying to load a retail version of Windows 7 HP x64 using USB on my Windows Vista HP x86 Acer 1410. I am able to boot from USB and the Windows 7 install program starts. I select Custom Install to do a new installation (not an upgrade). After I select the partition to install to, I get an error message like "can't find a system drive to install to..." I have tried this on two different 1410's with the same results.

It was the particular USB SD Card Reader I was using. I don't have a 4GB USB drive so I was using a USB SD Card reader and an 8GB SD card. I switch to a different Card Reader (same 8GB SD card) and it worked first time!

Acer :: Battlefield 2 On 1410 And Windows 7 X64

Sep 26, 2009

I was wondering if anyone has had any success in running Battlefield 2 on their Acer Aspire AS1410? I know the 4500 can handle it and the CPU as well, albeit on low settings.

I go to start the game and it acts like it is going to run, the screen flashes, and then dumps back to desktop.

I am running Windows 7 RTM x64.

Acer :: Empowering Technology 6292 - Boot Up Very Slow

May 3, 2008

There was a lot of gunk pre-installed on the Acer 6292 portable I bought about 6 months ago (eNet, ePower, ePresentation, eDataSecurity management etc, etc.), running under Vista Business (now with SP1). These make boot up very slow.

It has been suggested elsewhere (specifically in microsoft.public.windows.vista.general News Group) that these are not very useful and could be got rid of. I would like a second opinion before I uninstall these.

Specifically, are these interrelated - e.g. can I uninstall some (e.g. eDataSecurity) without affecting others (e.g. eRecovery) ?

I am a bit cautions about uninstalling as the Acer did not come with a recovery (or Vista) CD, and I would have no way of going back.

Acer Aspire 5755 :: Unable To Boot To Windows 7

Nov 13, 2014

I have an ACER ASPIRE 5755 laptop with 4GB RAM and 500 GB Disk. Now the issue I am facing is, it doesn't boot up. It just sits at a screen for sometime and then even if we reboot it goes to the same screen which is much prior to loading Windows and I believe just after the POST. I checked in the BIOS that hard-drive was not getting detected. I unplugged replugged ..took it out, put it back in but nothing worked. Than I removed that hard-drive and replaced it with a working hard-drive of my fren's & eventually it booted up fine. Hence this isolates to be an issue with the hard drive. Now my question is that, "is there any upper limit on the size of the hard-drive (as the inboxed one was 500GB)". I am planning to take 1TB hard drive. So will that work In addition to this, is there any link provided by Acer which I can browse and check what all Hard-drives are supported / compatible / recommended by Acer. I have been a big fan of Acer Laptops from a long time and would not want to buy a new laptop just because of this simple hard drive issue.

Acer :: Aspire 1410 / 1810T Fn + Brightness Key, Recognize The Problem

Sep 29, 2009

I know that the Fn + Brightness key issue on XP has been mentioned in other 1410/1810T threads, but I thought it might be nice to start a thread specific to the problem. After it's fixed we can add it with the other stickies.

I recently installed XP on a coworkers 1810T and because i'm interested in the machine myself i wanted to investigate the brightness issue and see if Acer is working on a fix, or even recognizes the problem.

My correspondence with Acer has been extremely frustrating and disappointing. I was considering using the 1810T laptops to replace our office's aging Lenovos but Acer's lack of support has made me majorly turned me off to that idea.

Here's my discussion with Acer, reverse chronological order (start at the bottom):............................................

Acer :: Aspire 1410 High Pitched Noise/Whine

Mar 17, 2010

I ordered and received my Acer 1410 (Celeron SU2300, WD Scorpio Blue 250GB, Windows 7 64, 2GB RAM) a little over a week ago and while I like almost every aspect of it, I'm wondering if the high pitched noise / whine I'm hearing from it is normal?

Basically I only hear it when there isn't much noise around, but it's still mildly distracting. It mainly comes from the area near the indicator lights, but is most apparent under the laptop where the RAM / HD slot is. For some reason the sound is much louder with the AC adapter plugged in. On battery, the noise is basically gone (but will come back for short periods of time). I can also hear the whine through the headphone jack if nothing is playing (at least on AC power).

What might be the cause of this noise and is there any way I can get rid of it? The RMClock trick doesn't work since the option to "Run HLT command when OS is idle" is grayed out and cannot be selected.

If I decide to return this and get another 1410 later (since the online store I bought it at is sold out right now), would I be likely to get another one with this whine/noise?

Acer :: Aspire 1410 (11.6) Keyboard Identical To Timeline 1810

Jan 31, 2010

my spacebar snapped off after moderate use on a one month old Acer. Tech support is willing to receive and fix it, but I need to be using this laptop and cannot be laptop-less for 16 days.

So I wanted to buy my own keyboard and was looking at this:

[url]

Now the page up and down keys are in 2 lines instead of 1 and these keys look bigger, but is the dimension of the keyboard identical to 1410 before I buy it?

The other one I saw on these forums is here:

From the timeline Thread from pookguy

The 2nd keyboard looks identical but the auction doesn't mention 1410.

Acer :: Windows 7 Welcome Screen On 1410 / Power Draw

Jan 11, 2010

I just received my 1410 last week and I'm absolutely thrilled with it! It runs so much faster, has better battery life and better build quality, than my HP Mini 311. I had some spare time this past weekend, so I installed another copy of Win 7 on it and it's now a dual-booter. I have re-installed most of the Acer software - but I cannot find a way to re-install the green Acer welcome screen.
