Acer :: Aspire Timeline And Optical Drive Power Management

Nov 8, 2009

Has anyone noticed that Optical Drive Power Management occassionally stop working, i.e., pressing the eject button on your laptop, Windows does not detect your optical drive? Does anyone know how to get Windows to detect the drive, short of restarting?

(my OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64. I am using Optical Drive Power Management for Windows Vista Home Premium 64 - I just installed the program in compatibility mode. Before anyone suggests this is the cause of the problem, I was experiencing this same problem in Vista Home Premium 64 and was hopeful that Windows 7 would fix it...)

I enjoy the feature of automatically powering off the optical drive in power manager. My issue is after reformatting my T530 the option is there until I do an update using the Lenovo ThinkVantage System Update. One of the updates seems to remove the feature from the power manager.

Acer :: CD Stuck In Aspire 7520 Optical Drive

May 7, 2009

My mum (bless her heart) has managed to get a cd stuck in the optical drive of her Acer Aspire 7520 laptop. The drawer opens but unfortunately the CD remains inside, as far as I can see it's jammed above the metal casing.

I've search everywhere for instructions for removing the drive as I'm pretty certain that this would solve it but alas no luck ..... which is where you guys come in.

Acer Aspire V3-572-5217 :: How To Add Optical Drive And Bezel

Sep 17, 2014

I am thinking about purchasing the Aspire V3 572 5217 and would like to know about the process of adding an optical drive. I have done some research and pretty much assume that the majority are universal. I would like to know if the product itself comes with a bezel or if I have to purchase one. If so, what steps do I do to make the right arrangements?

Acer Aspire E5-571P-52QK :: Adding Optical Drive?

Sep 4, 2014

I am considering buying the Aspire E5-571P-52QK. Images I have seen show either a DVD drive or a blank cover. It would make sense that these images are not of the actual product, or that you should be able to add an optical drive. However, I do not know that. Nothing, anywhere, shows what the truth on this model is.
 
can I add a drive to this? Yeah, I can get an external, but I want an internal.

Acer :: 4810TZ: Power Management

Jul 5, 2009

When I unplug my laptop from the AC adapter, Acer's ePower system automatically dims the LCD brightness to a setting that is 2 levels above the lowest (and 7 below the highest). However, when resuming the laptop from standby, I noticed that the setting is increased to 4 levels above the lowest (and 5 below the highest). I'm kind of a stickler for these sorts of things and would prefer for Windows not to change the LCD brightness if the ePower manager is supposed to be handling it. Is anyone else noticing this, and if so, have you corrected it somehow?

FYI, I should mention that I recently downloaded an updated version of Acer's ePower management system from Acer's support website - this updated version corrected an error that was occurring where my optical drive wouldn't "wake up" after ePower management shut it down, so I would prefer not to downgrade.

I'm frankly a little confused about where exactly all the Acer-specific power options are located. What is the difference between ePower and PowerSmart? Or are they the same thing? I could go on, but I think I've raised enough questions.

Acer :: Aspir 5942g Power Management And Backup Manager

May 5, 2010

I have this acer with these two problems.

Firstly the power management button does not seem to work.

I have of course launch manager and power management programs installed.

When i press the button, it does light up green, but i have no indication on the screen like i have when i activate wlan or bluetooth.

When the drivers of the powersmart manager are uninstalled the button does not light up green when i press it, so it partially works.

Also, nothing changes in my power settings nor the screen brightens down, no sign that it works.

Actions i took so far:
I uninstalled and installed both programs, and i run them as admin.

I installed first the launch manager and then the power management.

Nothing changed.

I go to c: program files:acer:acer powersmart manager and try to open the right exe file which i think is ePowerMsg but then i get an error message saying that the element ePowerMsg stopped working.

The window is this:
Is this the right exe?
I tried with ac only, ac and battery, battery only, same results.

Acer :: Timeline 4810T- Power

Sep 12, 2009

I have an Acer Timeline 4810T, and recently, I have been having a really weird issue with power. When I first got the laptop, I would plug in the power adapter and it would immediately start charging. Now, when I plug it in, it takes 30 seconds to a minute for the adapter to be recognized and the laptop to start charging. I'll plug it in and nothing will happen, and then after a while, the green battery off icon will appear on the screen and the charging light will come on.

Its a really weird issue, and I really hope is not going to get worse. I already had to return one of these because keys on the keyboard stopped working. I really don't want to have to send this one back.

Dell :: XPS 1640: Replace Slot Loading Optical Drive With Hard Drive And Caddy

Sep 29, 2009

I'm thinking of removing my DVD drive and replacing it with a caddy and hard drive as explained here.

I don't use the DVD drive very often and would much prefer a 500GB or 1TB hard drive in there. The DVD drive can then be used externally via the eSATA port using this cable.

The ideal solution would be to use this NewmodeUS caddy as it supports the larger 12.7mm 1TB 2.5" hard drives and has a removable faceplate. The problem is the price.

At $55 including postage to the UK plus customs, VAT and clearance fees on top it's going to work out pretty expensive for what is essentially a slimline SATA to SATA extension

Acer :: Aspire 5590 - Installing Epower Management

Acer :: 1810T: How Do I Disable Power Management On Bluetooth; Keep Bluetooth Fully Powered

Feb 8, 2010

My Bluetooth keyboard goes to sleep after a period of idle and it takes 15 seconds for the Acer Aspire 1810T to wake up and notice the Bluetooth keypresses.

However, I found out my Bluetooth keyboard works reliably when I have a second Bluetooth device connected and active at the time (such as either a headset or bluetooth tethering to a cellphone as modem), the computer doesn't have a 15 second lag in noticing the Bluetooth keyboard again - the keyboard works almost right away even after being unused for sometime.

So that means the culprit is in the power management on the Acer Bluetooth module. Is there a way to force the Bluetooth module to never go to sleep? Any checkbox somewhere, a register setting? Even going as far to purchase a different Bluetooth driver? Or any other option? Sometimes the sleep is useful, but it definitely isn't useful with the Bluetooth keyboard. This problem does not happen if I use an external Bluetooth dongle.

(With BatteryBar Pro, I notice that power consumption falls suddenly whenever the Bluetooth module goes to sleep when the keyboard goes idle for more than 30 seconds, and at this point, it has difficulty 'waking up' when I start typing on the Bluetooth keyboard. But the problem also still happens when the laptop is plugged in!)

Acer :: Could Timeline AS3810T-6775 Support External Bluray Drive

Aug 3, 2009

I've been looking at the new timeline series notebooks for a while and got really excited when newegg put up this model for $799! Anyways, I plan on getting an external drive and was just wondering if the SU9400 with Intel GMA 4500MHD could support playing a bluray disk on an external drive? From what I'm gathering through the numerous posts about these models, it appears that the SU9400 should playback 1080P off various websites but I couldn't find any info about a bluray player.

If so any suggestions on a compact inexpensive external bluray drive?

Acer :: Aspire M1640, ERecovering Management Fails To Respond

Apr 9, 2009

I have tried creating a recovery disk using the Acer Empowering Technology but every time i click on the create factory default disc button, the Acer eRecovering Management freezes and i get an error message saying : Acer Empowering Technology Framework launcher has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows is collecting more information about the problem.

Another thing, i know how to unhide the 'PQSERVICE' partition, but i'm wondering if it's possible to create these discs directly from the partition without the need for the faulty 'eRecovery Management'. If yes, how?

Acer :: Disk Management Partitions For Aspire V11 Touch Running OEM Windows 8.1?

Oct 28, 2014

I'm seeing the following:
 
600 MB Healthy (Recovery Partition)
300 MB Healthy (EFI System Partition)
449 GB Healthy (Boot, Page etc...)
15.5 GB Healthy (Recovery Partition)
 
Given I'm supposed to be running OEM Windows 8.1 shouldn't 1 of the first 2 partitions say OEM?
 
If that is so I know what I've done and it will probably require a recovery disk to set things straight (i.e. recover the original Acer version of Windows 8.1). This is a follow-on from a previous post where I foolishly installed an evaluation copy of Windows 10 instead of running it using virtual software (which is what I usually do with these things) - I can't remember for sure but it's likely I installed it by formatting the whole disk and probably wiping the OEM partition.
 
I do have a system image taken a few days before I installed W10 but suspect the OEM wasn't included...which is what is displayed above after I reloaded it.

Acer Aspire VN-591G :: Windows 8.1 - Uninstalled Recovery Management Software

Nov 30, 2014

I have recently purchased an Acer Aspire VN-591G which came with Windows 8.1 preinstalled.
 
I now wish to reset it to factory settings and I can't seem to do that as I have accidentally uninstalled the Acer Recovery Management software.
 
The recovery partition is intact, but I can't seem to be able to do anything with it.
  
I tried booting up using Alt + F10 but it opens up the default Windows 8 boot screen, where if I choose to reset the system it asks me to insert the recovery media (which I don't have as the system only came with the recovery partition).
 
I think I spent 3h searching through the internet trying to find the Acer Recovery Management software that comes with Windows 8.1 (which I'm hoping will be able to access the recovery partition and use it to restore the laptop to its original state), however, it seems that this is nowhere to be found.
 
I find it absurd for Acer not to provide this software as a download for their systems - how would you be able to use the recovery partition in case of a system failure ?

i tried booting up directly on the recovery partition but I didn't manage to do that (maybe I was doing something wrong - got an error about the disk not being a fixed MBR disk ?
  
Trying to set the recovery partition as active from the disk management screen in Windows is even more useless. I can't assign it a drive letter either to try to access it (I found some forums post that was suggesting to copy the boot files on the primary partition to allow the system to boot into the Acer Recovery Management screen directly.

Acer :: Your Experience With The Aspire Timeline AS1810TZ

Nov 27, 2009

I'm thinking of picking up this unit here:

[url]

as it seems like it'll do everything I need.

I'm recording voice overs and singing with it and it's specifically meant to be thin and light for travel - with a good enough screen resolution to edit with the machine while I'm on the go. I'd prefer a Windows XP unit (I'm trying to use Cubase LE and I'm not certain it'll work on Windows 7 Pro) but I can get an IT friend of mine to install XP on it if I need to.

My biggest concern with it - is noise. Is the fan really noisy? I know that I can regulate the fan speed etc. with the little apps that have been created for the unit here on this very board, but how long can one leave off the fan without the unit getting incredibly hot? I'm recording with this unit fairly close to a large diaphragm condenser mic, so really - it needs to be as quiet as possible.

Acer :: Aspire Timeline AS3810T-6415

Jul 19, 2009

I notice only 2 vendors have this one in stock in the USA right now, one is tigerdirect and the other is J+R and the price is full retail.

Will other vendors be carrying this model in stock? J+R is a local vendor so I may actually buy it from them but I am waiting longer to see if item comes with Windows 7 preinstalled or if price drops.

I notice this model does include a free upgrade to Windows 7 for orders purchased after june 26th and I didn't order yet so it will definitely include it.

Looking good. Way to go Acer for making something nice.

I really wanted an SSD Drive and Wimax. But I guess this is the only model they are doing and I can't wait forever.
