Acer :: Aspire AS 1410 Slow To Boot Windows 7
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
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)
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:
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 :: Empowering Technology 6292 - Boot Up Very Slow
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 1410- RAM
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
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
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
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
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 :: Can't Load Windows 7 X64 On 1410
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
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 :: Aspire 1410 Duplicate Model #- AC Adapter
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 :: Windows 7 Welcome Screen On 1410 / Power Draw
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.

Acer :: Aspire 1410 / 1810T Fn + Brightness Key, Recognize The Problem
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
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
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:
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 :: Aspire One Is So Very Very Slow
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 ...
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?

Its currently running extremely slow and struggles to perform basic tasks my older lower spec xp laptop had no problems with, such as playing music from my external hdd. Startup seems to take an age also.

Acer :: Brightness Controls No Longer Work On Timeline 1410 Upgraded To Windows 7 (32 Bit)
I used the upgrade kit from Acer to do a clean install of Windows 7 to my Timeline 1410. Everything works great and I love this laptop... except that the brightness controls (Fn+Left/Right Arrow) do not work. It's locked at highest brightness.
I am at my wit's end trying to figure this out.
I have installed all the Win 7 drivers from Acer's site, particularly
- Newest bios
- Launch Manager
- Chipset drivers
- Intel graphics drivers
When I first boot it up, the brightness controls work fine during the BIOS steps. But once Windows takes over, the controls no longer function. In the Windows Mobility Center, there is no brightness control panel. [FWIW, my Dell, which does have functional brightness control, doesn't show one either.] All other Fn-combinations, like volume control, work fine.
Acer :: Aspire 5536 Slow Booting
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
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)

I can't figure out why the Acer Aspire is not performing as well as the HP Pavilion.
Acer :: Aspire 1410 Intel SU3500 With Online Flash Video And Multi-tasking
I just made a purchase of a 1410 for about $340 with an Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 and 2GB ram. I plan to do a clean of install Windows 7 32-bit once I receive the laptop.
However one thing concerns me, how does the laptop fare with online Flash video streaming? I'm thinking it will do fine with 360p and 480p streaming, but is it able to run 720p or even 1080p smoothly?
Also, is this model able to multi-task somewhat? I'm not looking for anything extreme, but I'm wondering more about running multiple tabs in a browser or running Office apps with internet surfing, etc.
If not playable out of the box, are there tweaks to get HD flash playback smooth? I've heard of the new Adobe Flash 10.1 helping out with performance somewhat, but I'm wondering if it's a long wait before a cheap (sub-$400) netbook/sub-notebook can stream HD flash well that isn't an ION with Atom.
I've heard great reviews on the 1410 and like the purchase, but was just curious about some of the performance situations stated above.
Acer :: Aspire 5100 Running Extremely Slow
I'm guessing I did this to myself somehow but I can't figure out how to fix it. It originally came with Visa but I downgraded to XP and had been using it without problems for awhile. It started getting a little slow so I recently installed (and soon after uninstalled) a bunch of optimizing / driver updating programs. After playing around with those, my laptop is running super slow... I can't watch videos, the buffer causes it to just show the image while the audio plays... After running Dr. Hardware it looks like my CPU is only running at 800mhz which is a lot slower than it used to.
Acer :: Aspire 7520 Slow Graphics Processing
I have an Acer Aspire 7520 that is 2 years old, the system specs are:
- AMD Athlon 1.8GHz Dual Core.
- 17" WXGA+ CrystalBrite LCD.
- 4 GB DDR2.
- 500 GB HDD.
- NVIDIA GeForce 7000M.
It worked fine for a year but starting the second year, the sound card started to fail, and by that I mean that the sound sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't, but I solved this problem by buying an external sound card.
Two months ago I accidentally hit the laptop in the wall and after that incident the Graphics card can't process anything that requires high or medium graphics for example:
-When I play 720p videos the video runs very slow, it should be noted that I used to play 720p withouth any problem before the accident.
-The Windows Experience Index for Graphics went from 3.4 to 2.0 after the accident.
-Games that used to run at 30-40 FPS, now run at 2 - 3 FPS max.
- Windows AERO runs very slow now, so I if I want to use windows I have to run Windows Classic theme.
Things I've done:
1) Format my PC and tried different OSs XP, 7.
2) Flash the BIOS.
3) Change the Hard Drive with another one.
4) Change the RAM.
None of these things worked.
Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?
- screen went bad?
- Graphics card went bad?
Acer :: Aspire 5920g With 8600M GT Slow In A Game
my notebook is an ACER Aspire 5920g.
It has a NVIDIA Geforce 8600M GT, with 512Mb ram.
I am playing "Dragon Age: Origins" and, for the first time, a game is very, very slow. I already reduced the graphics in game, i already searched better drivers for the graphic card and got no better results. Besides that, the latests drivers recommended for my graphic card has unusual results in windows: sometimes, it blinks!
I already re-installed my Windows Vista to get better results... and got the same.
Acer :: Aspire 5610-4179 Slow On Bootup
Have a AS5610 and recently it is dog slow on bootup (8 Mins until the computer is usable). Have removed hard drive and scanned it with several malware scanners, tested the hard drive for physical problems as well as running memtest on the memory. None showed any problems.
Have run msconfig and disabled everything and that allowed a usual computer after 4 mins.
I ran a shareware util called BootLog XP and it appears to indicate that LVPRICINJ.DLL is running for 509 secs of a normal bootup. This is the logitech video camera driver. I was thinking of uninstalling the Orbitcam software and drivers but can not find the current drivers on the Acer (N America) site.
Acer :: Aspire 7720-6604 (Cdn) Slow Download Speeds
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.
Dell :: Slow Bios Boot
i currently have the a12 bios and when i turn on my 1530, it takes at least 30-40 seconds for the bar to load up.
It stops 80% of the way and then freezes then the dvd drive makes a noise and loads up. Like i dont know why it is slow to startup. What factors are causing this? Computer works fine.
its just the Startup dell bios screen that takes forever. I tried to go back with the A08 and A09 but all it did was make slower.

Apple :: Snow Leopard Slow Boot And Color Wheels
Since upgrading to Snow Leopard I have experienced slow boot times and many more color wheels when launching apps that I had with Leopard. From reading other Snow Leopard posts, this seems to be contrary to what other users are seeing. I updated to 10.6.1 hoping that would fix the issue, but so far has not. I'm about ready to wipe and do a clean install, but wanted to see if anyone else was experiencing the same problems.

Acer :: Aspire 9301 Boot
Machine is an Aspire 9301AWSMi running XP SP2 rather than Vista.
On boot, the machine shows the ACER BIOS screen but after that the display just goes blank. Have tried to boot from the Windows XP CD and the only difference is that following the BIOS screen I then get a message saying "Windows is inspecting your hardware configuration" and then a second or 2 later, back to a blank screen. No disc or CD activity.
Is this another ACER Motherboard problem or maybe a HDD failure?
Acer :: Aspire One Doesn't Boot
After I turn on the power, the harddisk led doesn't turn on, just the CAP and NUM led flash once. The screen doesn't turn on, even the Acer logo doesn't appear. I can hear something is turning inside the notebook, but it's definitely not the harddisk.
I wonder if I had pressed some wrong buttons, and disable the notebook.

Acer 5100 (xp) stopped working a few months back! It says windows could not start because the following file is missing
Telephoned acer for recovery disks! Problems is a bought laptop through a friend of a friend. As I didn't register laptop and can't provide password, they won't sell me disks.
Tried alt f10 but nothing happens. Enabled d2d and recovery in boot up screen. Still no joy.
I have managed to download recovery dvd's (x2) from bit torrent (Acer Aspire 5100 Restore DVD's) . I then set the boot priority to boot dvd first.
The files are iso. I have burned the image using imgburn on 2 dvd's. The disk starts the loading RAMDISK image. Then as it flicks to the acer recovery it quickly jumps to please wait.....
I am now going to decompress the files using winrar, then burn the files. But not sure this will make any difference.
Acer :: Aspire 5920 Won't Boot & No CDs From Dealer
Aspire 5920. When I purchased it from a chain electronics store, I did not receive any OS CD/DVD or any other disks with it. Now it got to the point where it had slowed down to a crawl, I went to do a system restore (Vista Home Premium) to the earliest point which was set on 24 Aug 09, and I when it went to reboot itself it is now stuck on Start Windows Normally and if I select it, it just cycles back to Start Windows Normally after about 15 seconds. I've been doing that for the past two hours. I've hit F5 to get to a screen that allows me to choose F8 and get to safe mode and other selections and all of them take me back to Start Windows Normally and the endless cycle from hell. Of course I have no CD to boot from, so I have no choices at this point. The extremely curious thing is that I know another couple of people who bought the exact same model from the same retailer and none of them got disks. The retailer apparently told one of them that Acer doesn't ship OS disks with this model. I find that hard to believe.
