Acer :: Best MXM Upgrade For My 6920G

Oct 25, 2009

My 6920G has a Geforce 9500M GS card in it atm. I have overclocked it as far as it will go and tbh, I'm still not happy.

What is the best compatible upgrade?

Am I right in thinking it's MXM-II and therefore the best card would be a 9600GT DDR3 that is found in the top-spec 8930G Aspires?

Is there anywhere that sells these cards with the Acer BIOS already installed?

I'm guessing a card from another brand laptop or with generic BIOS won't work?

Acer :: 6920G Max Upgrade, Cpu+gfx+hd

Dec 9, 2009

I have an acer 6920g which i intend to upgrade to the maximum possible starting with the cpu, after a bit of research the only contenders are the T9500 and the X9000 but im wondering if its worth it for the x9000 as i believe the bios is locked out on my acer so wouldnt be able to overclock it.

Even still it is 200mhz faster than the T9500 but am i going to notice this in the real world?

Next will be memory, apparently the chipset only supports up to pc5300 667mhz ram but will take pc6400 800mhz ram and downclock..

So to confirm, there is no gain in putting in faster ram?

Either way i will be putting in 4gb of decent low latency ram.

Now for a tricky 1, graphics......

I currently have an ati hd3650 512mb card that resides in an mxm2 slot which when i bought the laptop was the best gfx card i could find in it but no i want to put a 9600gt in to compliment the rest of the upgraded system (as i do play the odd game!) but have not found anything confirming if they work fully, i have found a card on ebay that has an acer bios and is ddr3, i'm assuming that with an acer bios it should work?

Also i will be putting in a large but fast hard drive such as this

Acer :: 6920G Screen Upgrade

Oct 6, 2009

I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks 720p just isn't enough.. I've been shopping for a new LCD panel for my 6920G, but was wondering a few things:

Brief background on my box:
T5750, 4GB, BD (Optiarc), PM965, 9500M GS, 1366x768.

Ideal:
T9300, 4GB, BD (Optiarc), PM965, 9600M GT, 1920x1080.

I'm going to start with the LCD panel first. The benefit from CPU upgrades seems nominal, and GPU upgrades seem expensive and a PITA.

a) Is there a guide/howto regarding how to change panels yet?
b) Is there any issues going from 1366x768 -> 1920x1080? Is it even possible?
c) I can't seem to find reliable places that sell the SAMSUNG, is a place like this reputable: [url]

Acer :: 6920G Win 7 Upgrade Battery

Feb 24, 2010

I noticed some of you are using Acer 6920G with Windows 7 (TehSuigi for example).

I only recently upgraded from Vista and experienced serious degradation of battery life.

It went from 2:45 to less than 2 hours immediately, and today it was closer to an hour.

I was wondering if anyone else experienced this problem and how you dealt with it. I thought maybe a BIOS upgrade could fix it, but I haven't tried this yet. Some claim it's a OS issue, some claim it's a manufacturer issue. Any feedback is appreciated, as I need to go on a trip soon and I need my battery working

Acer :: Aspire 6920G- Ram Upgrade

Dec 27, 2008

I noticed that on my windows score my ram was the lowest. Why? I have 3 Gb the max I can have for a 32 bit OS. is it because the ram is DDR2? Is there really a point to upgrade my ram? Will it make my computer faster? Or is it possible to upgrade my ram on my acer aspire 6920G?

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Throttling & Upgrade

Apr 16, 2010

My notebook has worked fine until about half a year ago when the CPU is overheating from doing little tasks such as skyping and having the internet open. So I read up on the topic and ended up here. I have rmclock installed and adjusted it a bit but no real effect. I also don't want to mess up my laptop by frying it.

For the Aspire 6920G with Intel T5750 @ 2GHz what do I have to set my FID and VID at?

other question:
Would you recommend upgrading my CPU or is the current one sufficient? (I use it for occasional gaming (Empire total war) and multimedia applications such as photo-shop)

If so what other components would I have to change?

Would it increase the performance of my laptop?

Acer :: 6920g- Upgrade To Intel 5300 Wifi

Oct 30, 2009

Just recieved my intel 5300 wifi card ready for the upgrade.

Upgrade physically went semi well, the 4965agn that was fitted was a devil to get out.

Seems like acer decided to get superman to tighten the two screws that hold the wifi card down. In the end the only solution was to remove the 2 pillers from the pcb(with pliers and brute force) and remove the card.

Windows xp fired up fine, no wifi connected popup. drivers were my first thought.

Checked device manager, code 10 on the device. tried new drivers, old driver sets, no progress.

Also there was a few links about the pcie 2 and pcie 1 compatiblity problems. But a pcie2 card should run at the pcie1 speeds when fitted to that slot, so that shouldnt be the problem.

Ive ordered a 2nd intel 5300, one that should be 'more' compatible..we will see. will post update on that when it arrives.

as of this point id say that the intel wifi 5300 does not play well with the acer 6920g.

Acer :: My 6920g And WoW

Nov 9, 2009

I have noticed my 6920g's fan to go annoying loud when playing Warcraft, which indeed is a pretty graphic instensive game depending where you are in WoW.

My question is to anyone else who owns a 6920g and plays WoW, do you have the same fan problems as me? Sure I understand it isnt going to be silent but recently it has seemed to get worse and it's really doing my nut in.

Comments and thoughts, obviously welcome.

I tried doing a search for similar problems but I kept getting a black screen for some reason.

Acer :: 6920G:hacked By Pca

Oct 4, 2009

I have a 6920G with 4Gb of RAM, a C2D T9300 and the Geforce 9500GS running Vista 64-bit.

For some reason I'm only getting 3DMark03 scores around 5200-5300 but I've seen benchmarks of identical systems much much higher.

Why is this?

My brother-in-law has a 6920 with a gig less RAM, a lesser C2D T5700 but a Radeon HD3650 and his 3DMark03 score is 10500.

Should my 9500GS really suck so much ?

Acer :: 6920G Freezing Up

Dec 24, 2008

Any 6920G owner have their hard drive access light stuck on "on" for about 30 seconds or so and have their laptops freeze for this duration? Freeze as in as soon as I click any window, it turns white. This happens every now and then, doesn't matter what I'm doing.

Acer :: 6920g Overheating Or

Dec 29, 2008

Some of us know that the 6929g sometimes mostly during gaming downclocks....

But can anybody explain to me, why i can get the following temps (tested separately)

cpu, max before downclocking:
realtemp: 91
hw monitor: 76

gpu, stock powermizer on
gpu-z 73 (stopped myself still no downclocking)

But then when i start playing cod5 my cpu starts downclocking @ 58 (hw monitor), while GPU @ 63....

Why does this only happen while gaming when it seems that both cpu and gpu can handle much higher temps?

Combined it should reach even higher temps but it doesn't because it downclocks?

Is there something else that can force the cpu to downclock?

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Fps

Jul 16, 2009

I've got the acer aspire 6920G, and when i play world of warcraft my fps drops to 7 in 25man raids. I play with really low options.

I've always had low fps, i tried installing windows Xp, vista and now windows 7 and nothing helps.

Now i must say, win7 had the best result. My fps increased in major cities, but in raids it's still the same thing.

I defragged my HD, I use a 64bit to use my full ram, I run no background programs, all options are on low, and i still get 7fps.

The only problem is that it came with Vista and keeps giving me problems. So i got out my windows xp cd and tried to reformat it. But after i select to install XP, i get a screen saying that it was unable to find a hard disc and that i might need to run a setup or diagnostic. My computer shows an ACER(C) drive and then a DATA(D) drive, but my windows xp doesn't see it

Acer :: Aspire 6920G RAM 3GB Or 4GB

Jan 22, 2009

i've just got an Acer Aspire 6920G and i have a question about the RAM.

The sticker on the palmrest says it has 4GB of DDR3 RAM, as does the box. But the system information on the computer says 3GB, CPUz says it has 4GB.

I've opened it up and there are definitely 2 sticks of 2GB DDR3 RAM, so why does the Windows system info say it only has 3GB?

Acer :: 6920G Bios 1.04 Or 1.02

Nov 14, 2008

if anybody has a older version of the bios for Acer aspire 6920G, please send it to tbulls@gmail.com, thanks so much.

I've refreshed my bios to 1.07 and I have tried 1.06 and 1.10.
I am not sure if they are official release version, but since I've refreshed my bios with these versions, my computer fails.

In the past, I could use recovery DVD to restore my system, and audio drive work fine, very high quality. Now it's gone, even I use recovery DVD, my audio drive does not works fine.

It sounds like a realtek HD public drive (low sound quality), and I cannot use plug-in microphone when 5.1 Dolby effect opened.

Acer :: 6920G Will NOT Take A Microphone

Jan 9, 2009

No matter what I do it will not take a microphone. The mic is working, I plugged it into an amp. It can't be the connector as I just got a new one today and tried it on the Aux input of a headphone amp.

This is absolutely ridiculous. I remember having this trouble before. I can't even seen to access "line in" as an option when recording anymore either. What's going on? I need to record some stuff and I can't use the crappy in built mic for that.

Acer :: Upgrading Hhd In 6920g

Mar 24, 2010

I made a purchase to upgrade my cpu to a T9300, today I decided to attempt to upgrade my gpu as I found this on ebay [url] (9600m gt for 109), by the way I am aware of the bios isue and needing a hdmi connection to begin with! but now I thought that seen as I done all this allready that I mayaswell make it a clean sweep and go for a faster hdd whille I'm at it

But what I would like to know is, would I be able to install a new coppy of vista on to my new hdd then install empowering technology and then use the back up image that I have allready created on my external hdd so that I would'nt have to mess around with installing every single one of my programs, apps and games again? as it litteraly takes me about 2-3 days to get it the way I want it (recently took it back tio factory default btw and it was a nightmare lol), or is there a better way to go around it?

Acer :: 6920G Throttling

May 19, 2010

I've had the Acer 6920G for quite some time, I realized I should put a stop to throttling/downclocking.

I tried the several ways which came from this site, especially from flipfire and DarkSilver. I already undervolted my cpu, but after I played L4D2 for about 10 mins it started to throttle again. And the post which DarkSilver made was to go to regedit and change some settings in the RightMark CPU Utility, I've done that yet it still throttled.

I also attempted to go to BIOS and check if I could disable EIST, but there was no option. Does anyone have any idea how to solve this? I've updated my drivers and everything, and I also upgraded to Windwos 7 - but it still stays the same way.

Acer :: Undervolting 6920g

Nov 26, 2008

decided to try out undervolting to solve what i suspect are cpu overheating issues which causes the gpu to downclock when playing games... i know others have done the same.. question is, how far below the default voltage have you guys gone? the default for the 12x multiplier is 1.1365v and right now im testing 1.0125v... i think ive undervolted a considerable amount already but have only gotten 1 or 2 degrees off my max cpu temp... also, do i have to undervolt all the multipliers? or is it ok to have my 12x multiplier at a lower voltage than the other multipliers? i dont really have the time to find the right voltage for all the multipliers
