Acer :: Brandnew Aspire Timeline 1810TZ G3-Switch Not Working After Formating

Dec 26, 2009

My girlfriend gave me a brandnew Aspire Timeline 1810TZ with build in G3 (UMTS) for Christmas. When i played around with the preinstalled system (Windows 7 Home Premium x64), I could use the hardware switch in the front of the chassis to enable/ disable the build-in G3-Module.

But as you know, the preinstalled OS are normally very slow, so i formatted the System and installed Windows 7 Professional x64. After installation of all drivers from the Acer website, the switch for enabling the G3 didn't worked anymore! I reformated again with Windows 7 Home Premium x64, but there was the same Picture: No, response from the G3-Switch.

The funny thing is: G3 and WLAN share the same physical hardware switch (you have to flip it to the left to enable/disable G3, and to enable/ disable WLAN you have to flip it to the right).

Flipping the switch to the right activated WLAN without any problem!

I have no idea how to fix this (tried every driver i could find).

Acer :: Timeline 1810TZ Wakes Up From Standby

Mar 23, 2010

I've got a problem with my 1810TZ. It wakes up from standby sometimes even when it's closed. If I have it in a case, it gets really hot.

I even know why it wakes up. Although the system log (Win7x64) says the power button is the bad guy, it's one of the keyboard keys. When the laptop is closed, and I press the display down on the right side, one of the keys is pressed (I guess something around the enter button).

Is there a way to disable the keyboard to wake the computer up? ........

Acer :: Timeline 1810TZ - Add Multimedia Key Functions To Keyboard With Software

Feb 19, 2010

I have an Acer Timeline 1810TZ.

I'm really missing the multimedia buttons on my old Dell lappy, mostly the Play/Pause, Next, Back buttons, because I listen to music a ton with headphones on the go.

So I was wondering if anyone knows of any software or keyboard drivers I can use to add those such functions? Maybe so I can use Fn+C = Play, Fn+V = Back, Fn+B = Next for example?

Acer :: Timeline 1810TZ Video Flicker/choppy Issue, Wrong Driver

Jan 1, 2010

I just bought an Acer Timeline 1810TZ a few days ago. I'm having problems with video flickering when I play .avi files and every other file format in VLC media player, I tried a few other players and it's the same issue. I'm pretty sure it's the video drivers I'm using but I don't know how to fix it. I did a clean install of Windows 7 ultimate the day I got it. The image and audio speed is fine on the screen but there's flickering lines across the screen when the camera moves around.

it's not fun watching flickering movies.

I have installed the Mobile Intelģ GS45 Express Chipset drivers just as recommended on this forum Acer 1410, 1810, 3810, 4810, 5810 Timeline Drivers, Software, Tweaks and Settings FAQ

Acer :: Aspire 5590 - Wireless Stops Working And The Light Is Off And It Won't Go On When I Move The Switch

May 3, 2009

Okay so my first question is this: Right now my wireless light is on showing that it's wireless, but if I close my laptop, or if it goes to sleep, and then I go back onto my laptop the wireless stops working and the light is off and it won't go on when I move the switch. I have a Aspire 5590

My second question is: I've hooked up a second monitor to my laptop I checked the settings and it works like this, if I move my mouse to the right and keep going, my mouse appears on the second screen. How can I make it so that the start menu and everything goes from the first to the second screen that way I can close my laptop, cause if I close my laptop screen it disables the second screen also/

Acer :: Undervolting Aspire 1810TZ

May 5, 2010

Im a newcomer to both laptops and this forum. I found your ultimate 1410/1810 thread and I was redirected to these two threads:

Undervolting guide and 1810T undervolting guide

I managed to get up the profile for the RMClock but somehow the program showed me only one mutliplier, 6X. The CPU ran at 0.9V, but at 1,2GHz, while it should do 1,3GHz under load. I uninstalled the program and the CPU ran at 1,3GHz once again. I cant seem to find out where to get the second 6,5X multiplier

Acer :: Aspire 1810TZ And Win7

Jan 20, 2010

I have a strange problem with Win7 (no matter if x86 or x64)...

I have 30Mbit internet connection, so I want to download some bigger files through internet during night.

I have all extra power features disabled (on CPU slowdown and screen dim and off allowed) and after few hours (sometimes 1, sometimes 4), the Windows 7 is in one of the two states:

a) when I move the mouse to wake up screen, only cursor goes up and I must restart notebook

b) when I move the mouse to wake up screen, screen goes up, but NO INTERNET CONNECTION

Must say, that it is the same with WIFI and also ETHERNET and is for sure Win7 problem, as when I install WinXP, everything is fine.

Acer :: Timeline Keyboard NOT Working In BIOS, Working In The OS

Dec 25, 2009

I have a timeline 4810T which has worked lovely since September, but now I have a weird problem with it: The keyboard won't work until the operating system is loaded. I can't access the bios (press the F2 key but nothing happens), neither select my OS on the Grub menu as the arrow keys doesn't work, all I can do is wait for the 10 seconds timer, then Ubuntu launches, then I can login without problems and all the keys work perfectly.

To give more details, maybe some keys do actually work before the os boot, because when I'm on the grub menu, some keys manage to stop the timer, but unfortunately I can't change the OS or accept the selection, then I have to reboot and wait for the timer to go back to 0 for itself and ubuntu loads.

I'm running the newest BIOS, updated some days ago but didn't had the problem since today.

Acer Switch 11 :: Contrast Adjustment Not Working Consistently

Mar 7, 2015

I recently purchased an Acer Switch 11.  I noticed that I wasn't able to adjust the display contrast, using the left/right arrows and "FN" key.  Through a chat session, an Acer technician recommended that I reinstall the Intel VGA Driver through Acer Recovery Management.  I followed his instruction, and it worked.  However, later I noticed that I could not longer adjust the contrast.  I could see the indicator move up and down in the upper left-hand corner of the screen, but the contrast wouldn't changed.  I once again reinstalled the Intel VGA Driver, and it corrected the problem.
 
After re-installing the driver a second time, I decided I would leave the tablet plugged into the keyboard.  Every fifteen minutes or so, I would unplug the display to see if the contrast changed.  Based on my settings, it did change as desired.  I did this for several hours.  Later, I decided to remove the display from the keyboard.  Initially, I was still able to adjust the contrast.  However, after 10 minutes or so, I no longer could make adjustments.  At that point, I placed the display back into the keyboard dock.  I tried to see if it being locked into the keyboard was required in order to make contrast changes.  It still didn't work.  I then reinstalled the Intel VGA Driver and corrected the problem.  I have kept it plugged into the keyboard, and I can still make adjustments.

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.

Acer :: Aspire Timeline 3810tz Vista To XP Downgrade

Aug 28, 2009

I own an Acer Aspire Timeline 3810tz. My laptop did not come with an optical drive and now I'm wondering how I might go about downgrading it from Vista to Windows XP? I have already purchased a USB Cd-Rom drive and skimmed through some nLite articles, but I'm still getting the blue screen 0x0000007B error. I'm guessing it has to do something with the SATA/AHCI driver but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

*During my XP install I changed the SATA Mode from AHCI to IDE

*I think I might be using the wrong driver, but I'm not entirely sure.

Acer :: Modifying Aspire Timeline ShortCut Keys

Jul 6, 2009

The follow is the Registry Entry for Acer Aspire Timeline.

I already modified this key to point to Windows Media Player.

Quote:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREInventecLManagerSettingsButtonsBackup]
"Command"="wmplayer.exe"
"Command Type"="1"
"Label"="Windows Media Player"
"Remote Code"="C008"
"Description"=""Windows Media Player"
"Configable"="1"
"Show OSD Only for Legacy"="0"

If you want it to point to other programs, simply

1. copy and paste onto notepad
2. Change "wmplayer.exe" to something else the reason I don't use the full path is because wmplayer is in C:Windows and the shortcut can automatically find anything in C:Windows.
3. If the program is in Program Files you have to use the full path eg."C:Program FilesXXXXXX.exe"
4. Change the Label and description (although it doesn't work as in display the word Windows Media Player when you click it)
5. Save as backup.reg
6. Double Click then Confirm and you are done.
7.There are other keys however I don't recommend modifying them as they are pretty useful like battery saver mode and Wireless Shortcut.
8.To Locate other shortcut keys find the executable path and trace it to the specific keys.
9.LManager (LaunchManager) always hold the key data.

Acer :: Aspire Timeline 4810t-8480 With Windows 7 RTM

Sep 2, 2009

I recently wiped out my Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit partition and installed Windows 7 Professional RTM 64-bit on it. I see the performance of booting up increased (using a SSD), programs opened faster (SSD), and shut down is a bit more faster also. The thing I'm concern about is the battery life. It seems to get shorter battery life.. the meter says 5 hours 31 minute on a 98% battery when windows vista says around 8 hours on that percentage. Both were idling. Is that normal that Windows 7 uses more battery or what?

Acer :: Aspireģ 4810 Timeline Vs. Lenovo T410s

Mar 23, 2010

First of all I will admit that I have never used an Acer before (I am a Lenovo/IBM person) and I don't get how this whole brand works. I hope you will be able to help me out. So my notebook is Lenovo 410s and i am very happy with it; now I am helping to buy a notebook for my friend who has similar needs as I and I would recommend her Lenovo again, but hey I just stumbled across Acer and found it interesting. So I'd like to ask a few questions in the hope you will help:

1. Who are the best sellers in the US of Acer computers? It seems to me that Acer, unlike Lenovo, is being sold everywhere and I can't make sense of this mess - i.e. who to buy from.

2. Would be e.g. an Acer 4810 Timeline (or suggest any other type) be able to meet the following:
a) need a quite computer (noise of any kind is especially annoying)
b) need a light computer (carry it everyday ..anything around 4lb should do)
c) need more of a business model: don't do any gaming, only office, web surfing and an occasional video watching
d) need a solid and sturdy build
e) need an integrated webcamp, SD card reader

Now I have to say that Lenovo 410s meets basically all the wishes I've had for a laptop: it's very light (3.8lbs), very fast, fantastic build. The only two issues that I don't like about it: the quality of the screen is subpar and it does get noisy - by that I mean fan activity. But overall i have not seen a more impressive computer than this.
Thus would Acer be able to beat this? What about screen quality? Heat issues? How bad are the speakers? etc. Btw. does Acer offer Solid State Drives with their units?

In sum, can anybody suggest a model that would equal the performance and specifications of Lenovo 410s and make a persuasive argument why to go with Acer and where to possibly buy it? (of course Acer being cheaper is one such argument).

Acer :: The Aspire Or The Aspire Timeline

Jan 13, 2010

I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.

The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?

Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:

Aspire A5538-1096
[url]

Aspire Timeline 5810-4784
[url]

My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?

Acer :: Aspire 5315- When Tries To Switch On Laptop It Seems To Boot Up

Sep 3, 2008

when my girlfriend tries to switch on the above laptop it seems to boot up but there is just a blank, black screen. If you look very, very closely the desktop display seems to be there but we don't know how to change the colour/contrast etc. Is it as simple as that do you think or is the problem deeper. I've tried everything I can think of; I've thrown water over it, hit it with the cat and punched it. None seem to work.

Acer Aspire V5-573G :: Nvidia Optimus Does Not Switch

I'm currently using Acer Aspire V5-573G, which uses Nvidia GT750M.

Whenever I run games or graphics-intensive program such as the adobe premier pro, the program will continue to run using the Intel HD graphics and not the Nvidia driver.

I've tried changing the settings in the Nvidia control panel to use Nvidia graphics driver for all programs, but running the optimus tool will show me that the Nvidia GPU is not being used for any of the programs.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 :: How Many Brightness Levels On Device

Nov 20, 2014

I just want to be sure my Aspire Switch 10 is working as designed. When you adjust the brightness on your device (any laptop or tablet) in 8.1, how many steps is it from dimmest to brightest? The brightness bar goes up many steps, but after doing function + arrow keys 3 or 4 times im already at max brightness from the bottom. It feels like there should be many more increments of brightness.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 :: WiFi Randomly Dropping Out

Mar 2, 2015

I have problem a with my Switch 10. The internet connection drops frequently. It is followed by the signal strength icon showing 'Limited'. I then turn off WI-FI and turn back on and it does not recognize any networks at all. I then go into network settings, run the troubleshooter and it does its stuff, re-setting the network adapter, and then informs me that it could not find an issue. After resetting the adapter it works fine again.I have tried uninstalling and installing latest drivers but the problem persists. The problem lies within the adapter itself or the driver.

My adapter shows as being REALTEK and i read on here of similar problems with the Broadcom adapter, which makes me think that the driver is causing the problem. Someone suggested that the Bluetooth was causing a conflict, so I removed bluetooth and it made no difference. (I have re-installed bluetooth. All drivers are latest ones.My switch is not a month old yet and this happens a couple of times a day. and am close to returning the product. I like it, but cannot put up with such an important issue as the internet randomly dropping.
