I just got an acer aspire timeline 5810tz, which came with vista, so i was in the process of reformatting it to have XP, which i've done several times on my previous laptops. When i changed the bios to IDE, which is what i read was the correct setting (perhaps this is where my problem is?), i found that i could no longer boot the computer or access setup, bios or the boot menu. When i attempt to do any of these things, the computer just sits on the logo screen.
i'm getting fairly desperate at this point, having tried a large variety of solutions, key combos, removing the battery, etc.
Is it possible to install extra RAM or replace a graphic card in an Acer Aspire 5920? I currently have 3 Gb RAM and my graphic card's ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470. My computer is running rather slow and it has problems running games, if there's any other way to improve this I'd be happy to hear it.
i bought a acer gemstone 5920G M laptop a couple of years ago and the graphic card has blown up had someone look at it and he told me to buy a new graphic card to replace the blown one.
The card i need is a Nvidia 8600M GS 512 meg version im finding it difficult to find this card does anyone know of any companies. i did manage to speak to one company and they said they were out of stock but they told me i could use an nvidia 8600M GT card instead.
i have acer 1810tz the problem is when im playing h.264 coded videos in fullscreen mode i have some strange line in the middle of the screen not always just sometimes specialy when there is movening in the video its like the video been divided into to pieces and then tried to put next to each other so it would be one picture,
in original size it works normal i tried all media players you can find and it still there i guess something is wrong with my graphic card
Just got my new notebook and registered successfully for the win 7 upgrade.
I notice that the machine has 4GB RAM so it surely makes more sense to install Win 7 64 bit...? Anyway I have two other copies of the full version of Win 7 on pre-order for our home desktops which come with both 32 and 64 bit versions.
One of our desktops is generally used for office tasks so could I use the Win 7 32 bit upgrade intended for my Acer Timeline for that and do a fresh install of one of my full Win 7 home premiums on my new Acer Timeline?
Basically, is the upgrade locked to the associated Acer laptop?
I tried to update the BIOS on ACER Aspire 5810tz-4657 and it failed. The computer powers up with a few lights (no monitor activity or cd activity...but USB's flash once indicating a 'check' maybe?) and either powers off immediately and powers back up...or just sits powered on with power light and wireless light remaining on. The HD does some spinning as well.
Preface: I am stuck being tech support for my brother who is living in Torres Vedras, Portugal right now. He is having some problems with a pretty new Acer Aspire 5810TZ that was given to him around Christmas time. The computer had been used for about a month before he received it and had a few programs installed on it along with the usual bloatware. I cleaned up what I could before he left for Portugal again and installed AVG anti-virus, MS Office '07, and Windows 7.
Now that he is back in Portugal he is having problems with the things he uses most on the computer (Built in microphone not working, built in webcam only working randomly for a short amount of time, and DivX failing any time he tries to watch tv or movies online) I've walked him through updating all the drivers and reinstalling DivX, but nothing seems to fix these problems and Windows 7 is starting to look like more trouble than it is worth to him.
Main Question: Is there any way to restore the computer back to the way it was when first purchased (with Vista or 7, whichever will work) without the use of recovery discs (He does not have any with him over seas) in a way that is simple enough for me to relay to him?
I am trying to use my TV to view some of my notebook content and some internet stuff using an HDMI cable instead of a serial cable. When I connect the HDMI cable to the TV and change my output the TV displays "no signal" and then "device not configured" or something like that. Am I doing something wrong or can I only connect with a serial cable?
I saw in some threats that said you can get Geforce 9800 into XPS 1730.
But when I got to Dell website, I couldn't see where Geforce 9800 was, but 8700. It is said that "The Dell MediaDirect feature is not compatible with the NVIDIAģ SLIô Dual GeForceģ 9800M series video solutions .....
I'm getting a weird white vertical line , about 2 inches thick, all over my display, it doesn't matter if I'm browsing software, or just at boot screen, the line is there.
Weird thing is, it seems to randomly dissappear sometimes, but appears again when trying to shut down the lappy, is the first time this thing happen to my display and I shuted down my lappy, hoping its propably a heat problem.
if i can add a Graphic card( probably an 8800) on my HP HDX 18t( model= X18-1175EE).I know that the general answer is no, however, lately i ve been hearing that you can actually add one if u have an expansion slot( i think mine is level 3).
I have Acer Aspire 5810TZ-4433 (Model MS2272) laptop unit.¬† The HDMI connection to my TV functioned correctly until yesterday when it will no longer show the desktop icons or live internet connections on my TV screen.¬† I have wallpaper which shows (The MS wolf theme that is included in the Win 7 Pro OS) just fine but no desktop icon overlays nor will it show the live internet windows. ¬† The laptop itself appears to be functioning normally. For some reason the HDMI cable is not carrying the other digital data to my TV screen. ¬† In summary:¬†¬† Laptop screen shows all the icons on the desktop with them overlaying the "wolf" wallpaper background.¬† I have normal functioning of the computer when I click on these icons. ¬† TV screen:¬† Shows only the 'wolf" wallpaper background.¬† No other information is viewable on the TV ¬† I have tried using different HDMI inputs on the TV using several different HDMI cables all without success. To my knowledge there has been no damage to the laptop's HDMI output connector.
What do I do? I have tried copying the files to a USB and powering on with Fn-Esc held down. After letting go of the power button and holding Fn-Esc a different screen appears after 30 seconds. I let go and have given it 30 minutes but it is not doing anything. I have read online from other people the power button should be blinking. Do I need to rename one of the files.
I want to buy the studio xps 16 but I heard that dell will update its graphic card from the radeon 3670 to the newer 4670 card shuold I buy it now or wait a few months? also does the T9800(2.93GHz) worth the $275 incraese in price or I can just overclock the T9550(2.66GHz)
i would like to ask if somebody know if I can change Radeon 3650 which I have in my Studio for nvidia 8600m? I found this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Dell-Vostro-17...1%7C240%3A1318 on ebay but I`m not sure if I can change it.
i was jus gamming for an hour until i closed and then opend the hardware monitor to see that the ati radeon graphic card temperature was about 81`C so i am really worried if this could damage the machin
