I have been looking into purchasing a desktop replacement laptop and the 8930g seemed to be exactly what i was after.
However due to the fact that the laptop has been out for quite some time now i was concerned a successor would come out within the next 1-2 months for a similar amount of money.
I tried searching for an 8940, as the 8920 was first and then the 8930, i have found no 40 but i have found a press release for a recently announced 8935:
There is very little information available in english about this model atm on google but obviously i would like to know if this is going to be the successor for the 8930 and whether it is worth waiting for this model to come out with what i presume to be superior specifications.
What i am actually holding out for though is a graphics card option that would be higher than then 9700 option found within the 8930.
Anyway, i was hoping other people might know something about this 8935 and if it was indeed the follow-up to the 8930 or that perhaps it is unrelated to it and i may as well just proceed with the 8930 purchase now.
Had my Acer Aspire 8930 for 11 months now and I've always assumed it displayed images at 1920 x 1080 because of the blu ray drive and the fact it has a sticker on the front of the laptop which says 'FULL HD 1080 PLAYBACK'.
I've just gone into my display settings and it says 1680 x 945!
That is on the highest setting possible.
The sticker on the side of the box it came in says;
Aspire 8930G - 584G32Bn which according to [url] states at the top in the summary it boasts 1920 x 1080.
How can the sticker on my laptop claim full HD at 1080? Do I have the wrong screen on my laptop or am I missing something?
I have had this laptop for just about a week and a half, and although last week it played "The Dark Knight" BluRay disc, it will not play any bluray at this point in time.
The Acer Arcade Deluxe program is apparently supposed to do that function, but it will not. I have updated the software for AAD a couple of times. I have tried reinstalling it, I have tried checking the driver for the multi-drive. All to no avail!
Right now the Device Manager calls the optical drive a CD-Rom. I do not know if it was a Windowes update that screwed things up, or what, but what is the point of buying a laptop with a blu-ray drive, when 10 days later it won't play a blu-ray disc?
I bought my Aspire notebook a few weeks ago and after messing around with Vista I decided to replace Vista with XP. But since then I can't get the sound working the way it did before I formated. I tryed everything including driver replacement, update, and even installing the Vista HD 889 sound drivers but still nothing. Everytime I ran a sound file only the left front and back speakers are working 100% the rest work roughly around 20%.
I have a new Aspire 5630 with vista installed. The disk drive is very high speed and whistles loudly when installing applications from dvd. I expect this and it is not a problem The trouble is that when i try to play a music DVD the same sound completely swamps the music and so DVD playback is a NO NO.
On my desktop PC I had a similar problem and had to install Nero Drivespeed which allows me to set playback speed to "silent"
This does not seem to work on vista ( neither does any other program that i have tried.)
Surely this must be a problem to a lot of people and I would assume that there would be a setting in the bundled DVD playback software to solve this problem. Or perhaps there is?
I just recieved my Aspire 8930. But Im having a problem.
While filling out the information for my operating system, it randomly decided to BSOD on me, loading the dump information then going to a black screen. Now when I turn it off and try to turn it on, the hard drive doesnt click on or even blink the little display, neither does the screen flicker on.
In Windows 7 on my aspire 0722 I can find no tabs for playback - when I go the Sound settings my only option is the Conexant speakers in the netbook. I get great video though my hdmi cable. I have checked and I am up to date on my Win 7 updates. Is there some new driver download I should be trying?
I have bought my Acer 8930 and I'm happy.... Or... I'm actually a little sad, because I thought it could run CoD5!!
I can run Call Of Duty 5 smooth in 5 minutes, but then it begins to slow down for some reason. I have tried different graphic-settings and Resouloution with no luck. I have heard in some other threads that Vista 64-bit would help?
I run with these specs:
Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit) Intel Core Duo Processor P8600 18.4 Full HD screen NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT TURBOCACHE 4GB DDR3 640GB HDD Blue-ray And much more . . .
In the Acer Power-Management I have set it to High Performance, and Maximum CPU and Graphics Settings. I have also set the NVIDIA graphics driver to Performance.
I have also tried to set it on balanced.
It lags most of the games that I play. (Left 4 Dead, CoD5, GRID etc.)
i bought this 8930 with p8400 core 2 duo,GF 9600M GT, 4gb ddr3.
Ran 3dMark with 1280 x XX AA 0... 5100 points?
Isn't that a bit low? I thought the points should be somewhere 5500-6500. My NVIDIA drivers are currently 180.70, maybe i should change those? What about Vista 32bit? Never had a vista before, is there something i should turn off/disable/remove in order to make my computer faster? For now i've only removed some of the useless software that came with the computer and changed the firewall McAfee to Comodo.
I bought myself the acer 8930 which has 32 bit vista
I know vista doesn't use part of the ram but my question was, does it really make a performance change to reckon with?
Also a few friends of me told me that my processor would not be supported very well by 64bit What's up with that? They say I need a 64 bit processor although many people here on the forum seem to do a clean install on models which have the same processor as mine
I am in the market for an 18.4" screen laptop. Brands I have found so far are Acer, HP, Sony, and Toshiba.
I just wanted to know if buying an 18.4" laptop from Acer is safe and reliable considering they can be cheaper than the competition. The Toshiba seems underpowered to me and resolution stinks; Sony looks promising with a great screen and design, but costs too much; HP I will never buy because of the gloss coating everywhere and feels cheap; and the Acer I haven't even seen in person yet, but looks good and gives the bang for the buck factor.
How much worth is it for me to get an Acer over a Sony? Both brands seem to have great screens from looking at other Acer and Sony models. Is Acer reliability pretty darn good?
If I can get some help here, links to all the new 8930 laptops would be killer! So far I found TigerDirect.com and Newegg.com, both offer good selections but TigerDirect.com offers the laptops in Blu-ray but lower screen resolution and cheaper processor.
Newegg.com offers only in dvd-drive, high screen resolution, and better processors.
I have just connected my 8930 to my LCD 1080 TV and the Video works great BUT no audio playing through the Laptop....the only way I get sound is to turn the volume up on the TV....cool picture but no sound.......
i have an acer 8930, and i have problem with the multimedia touch thing(the keyboard) on the left, i cant control it, since the volume and mute keys are turned on(in blue), and everything else its turned off, and i try to use it and it wont do anything...so, this happend once before, but 2 days latter, it was working again, by its own, but now its happening the same for almost 2 weeks now, and i dont know what to do...
i just recently bought an acer 8930g laptop, when i log into msn the synaptic tool crashes causing the scroll on the touchpad to stop functioning, however i have uninstalled the touchpad diver and got another from manufacturs website and installed it, it still doesnt seem to solve the issue, i have done a system restore, that didnt help either.
i think its msn that causes it to crash but not 100% sure tho as i have tried to test to see what causes it to crash, i did this by loggin into msn out of 10 times about 7 of the time it crashed, so am pretty sure its msn, maybe i might be wrong and please correct if i am.
below i will paste the error that i get, i got this by going on the event viewer.
on the general tab:
Faulting application SynTPEnh.exe, version 10.2.4.1, time stamp 0x47f6c0c1, faulting module SynTPEnh.exe, version 10.2.4.1, time stamp 0x47f6c0c1, exception code 0xc0000409, fault offset 0x0002988c, process id 0x17bc, application start time 0x01ca1060bf9b1946.
This one comes complete with 32 & 64Bit Windows Flasher and on my machine has fixed shutdown issue and cinedash issue. The only thing I noticed when updating is it took 4 to 5 minutes to complete. "NO" SLIC 2.1 or VT Support.
I came home and turned it on, checked my emails... I went to the fridge took something to eat, came back and my internet was gone. No connection or whatsoever. I tried turing the wireless on and off but it doesn't help, I push the side button and it doesn't matter when I press it if it says wireless allowed or wireless off. I just detects nothing. I thought maybe it was the router so I reinstalled it but even that didn't work. My sisters laptop detects our network so no problem there...
I have a 5.1 output on my comp and after reading up on Wikipedia I'm still not sure whether I should be getting sound from 5 or all 6 speakers. In the test thing it says ; If the low frequency sounds are not heard from the subwoofer (Tuba) then I should check the "Swap" box to swap the center speaker for the subwoofer, which seems to indicate I should normally be getting sound from all 6 speakers, as when I make the test Icones all 6 speakers send out soundwaves. I'm pretty sure that, in the past, I was getting sound from all the speakers, and that the subwoofer was a lot stronger than before.
How does the Acer 8930 differ from the 8920 - and in particular, from the 8920-6746? I was just about to order the Acer AS8920-6746 from Newegg - and then I saw a reference to the 8930, which appears to be a newer model.
