Acer :: Empowering Technology And Epower Management For Timeline 1810t
I just got the Aspire 1810t last night and upgraded my OS to windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.
I finally got all the right drivers on here and launch manager which fixed my Fn keys, however the Fn+F1 still doesn't work, that is what launches the power manager.
I'm only getting 5 hrs battery life without it, how to reinstall the epower manager and empowering technology software...

Acer :: Empowering Technology Install
i uninstalled acer empowering technology with the intention of reinstalling it afterwards. it had been laggy and closed spontaneously for a while, so i was going to download it again from acer support.
i got rid of all the components, went to the website, and downloaded it.
after installation completed it said something about WMIAcercheck.exe not working.
i tried to boot it up, and it said exception message:
and then it said sorry! not an acer system.
however, my computer is clearly an acer system.
it's an acer aspire 5100.
i neeeed acer empowering tech to hook up to the internet, it's extremely slow to do it another way.
Acer :: Empowering Technology Hotkey
how, when you press the "e" empowering technology button the toolbar pops up?
And when you switch on the bluetooth module, the WLAN switch, and even the FN+UpArrow and DownArrow and the little green text at the bottom of the screen comes up? Well, in my system it's not working anymore.
Last thing I remembered that happened was my Norton IS 2009 detected a virus and prompted to restart the system, and so I did, and then things started to go weird. For instance, the touchpad driver needed to be reinstalled, and then I could see that my startup items DRASTICALLY got reduced, looking at the task manager. I tried reinstalling the Empowering Technology Framework, but still it doesn't work. Any of you guys experienced issues like this?
Acer :: Empowering Technology 6292 - Boot Up Very Slow
There was a lot of gunk pre-installed on the Acer 6292 portable I bought about 6 months ago (eNet, ePower, ePresentation, eDataSecurity management etc, etc.), running under Vista Business (now with SP1). These make boot up very slow.
It has been suggested elsewhere (specifically in microsoft.public.windows.vista.general News Group) that these are not very useful and could be got rid of. I would like a second opinion before I uninstall these.
Specifically, are these interrelated - e.g. can I uninstall some (e.g. eDataSecurity) without affecting others (e.g. eRecovery) ?
I am a bit cautions about uninstalling as the Acer did not come with a recovery (or Vista) CD, and I would have no way of going back.
Acer :: AS6935 Gets Hot, Epower Management
I recently bought an Acer Aspire 6935 and I'm very happy with the performance. I formatted the hard drive and installed vista x64. Now my laptop frequently overheats and then shuts down automatically. I just read that it might have someting to do with the epower management module, which I don't have anymore (after format). I can't find any downloads for my model;
Acer :: USELESS EPower Management Software
I see in the 1410/1810 thread people uninstall this and it seems to help battery life. I want to see proof. Show tests, videos, photos, whatever proof you have that this software that Acer engineers designed is useless. I had an EEE before and it shipped with Asus's own power management software and I never had a problem with it working together with whatever Linux or Windows OS I used. So, lets see what proof you have that shows the epower management software is useless.

Acer :: Aspire 5590 - Installing Epower Management
Hey guys I have a Acer Aspire 5590. I installed empowering technology, then I installed enet, eperformance, and esettings for it, I tried installing epower management but it says I need net frame 1.1 but yet I installed 2.0 then 3.5 yesterday.. and it still doesn't work. I formatted the laptop yesterday, but when it was not formatted it had all the acer programs on it, such as the one where it controls the battery performance, so I could change the screen brightness, how fast the laptop goes and what the settings are when it's running on battery. What is that program called, could somebody send me a link so that I have all the acer programs that come with acer laptops? I have Windows XP
Acer :: Second IDE In Timeline 1810T
I actually have a Gateway EC1815U and heard it is identical to the acer 1810t.
In the Gateway bios (insyde) I see an option for a device on IDE1. IDE0 is used for the internal hard drive.
I am wondering if there is either
1- a way to expose the 2nd IDE externally to use like a eSATA device with it
2 - Be able to install a 2nd IDE device like a SSD to use that interface
I'm wondering out loud and checking here to see if anyone can offer some advice.
Acer :: Aspire Timeline And Optical Drive Power Management
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...)
Acer :: [ Aspire 1410/1810t/1810tz] Timeline Tweaks (2)
This is the follow-up thread to Phil's great Timeline Tweaks thread.
I've decided to leave out 13"+ timelines for now and focus on the 11.6" models.
3810T, 4810T, 5810T and Travelmate users are welcome to create dedicated tweaks threads.
Some tweaks in this thread work for other timelines too, though.

Acer :: Which -- Timeline 1810T Vs Ferrari One -- To Replacing Ao751h Netbook
Anyone who has compare the two?
Similiar price, similiar specs, similiar 3 pound weight, similiar form factor, same 11.6" screen, except for CPU and graphics.
I've got an Acer Aspire One 11.6" netbook, which I had to purchase in an emergency to replace a failing laptop two days before travel. It's great, except it's a bit too slow. I managed to make it perform miracles such as smooth YouTube playback and 100% stutterfree AVCHD video file playback (from my Panasonic camera), but I need to use heavyweight apps now, plus a little lightweight video editing (just trimming clips) and much faster copying and synchronization of big files between computers over Ethernet (gigabit) and faster USB performance. And possibly, occasional Blu-Ray quality playback, which both alternatives can do.
So.... I'm looking for a full-performance laptop in the same form factor, and it has boiled down to the Acer Timeline 1810T (SU7300 Core2 Duo version and Intel GMA4500), and the Acer Ferrari One (with the AMD Turion64 X2 and Radeon HD3200). Some love/hate the Ferrari branding, but I don't really care about the Ferrari branding, however red is my favourite color, and is the color of my ao751h anyway.
Which CPU and graphics perform better than the other?
I would bet the 1810T with the Core2 Duo would have better CPU scores, while the Ferrari One would have the better graphics score (being a Radeon HD3200).
Acer :: 1810T: How Do I Disable Power Management On Bluetooth; Keep Bluetooth Fully Powered
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 :: Timeline 1810T Vs. Gateway EC1815u ... LCD Quality Difference
Today i went to a computer store to check the 2 above mentioned laptops.
1. Gateway EC1815u
2. Acer Timeline 1810T
Both are identical in screen size, weight, features... The only difference is that the Gateway has 500gb Hdd whereas the Acer Timeline has 320gb.
So i was deciding to buy the Gateway however on close inspection of both the laptops side by side i found that the Acer Lcd was slightly brighter and more crisper than the Gateway Lcd.
At this point in time i searched the internet but could not find any reviews for the gateway laptop though there are quite a few for the Acer Timeline which all praise the Acer's Lcd Screen Quality.
Now i'm totally confused as to which one to buy...? I was more keen on the EC1815u since it has 500gb hdd compared to 1810T which only has a 320gb hdd but i found the 1810t screen quality to be better than EC1815u...!
1. Has anyone compared both these laptops screen..? I was told that Acer owns Gateway and that the EC1815u is the exact copy of 1810T then how come the screen quality of both the Laptops is different...?

Acer :: Virtual Technology Windows 7
Many Acer notebook do have an Intel CPU which is VT-capable. However Acer does not enable this. The last BIOS versions doesnt give an option to switch it on.
Now Windows 7 has an XP-modus which require VT-technology the time is come for ACER to enable the VT-bit in the BIOS for the 7720 (and proberbly more).
How can we push ACER to do this?

Acer :: What Is Empowering Password
My Vista drive will not boot. So I went into the bios and made certain that D2DRecovery setting was enabled but I didn't see if Acer disk-disk recovery was in the bios. I also see in the bios that password enabled but I cannot change it to be unenabled.
As soon as I saw the Acer screen, I hit the ALT-F10 combination and started the recovery process. When it came to a password I did not know it and when I clicked on Hint, it told me that password but no matter how many times I typed it in in either lower case or upper case, it would not accept it. Is there some universal password I could use to restore Vista ?
The screen constantly states password incorrect. Is there such a thing as empowering technology password ?
Acer :: Aspire 5535 - EmPowering
I bought Acer Aspire 5535. I got Resource dvd with it, and on that dvd are drivers for Windows Xp, Vista 64 and Vista 32.
When I started him for the first time and try Alt + F10 nothing happens, so I decided to format HDD and put XP on it. I changed AHCI in bios (to IDE) and formated the HDD with Windows Xp. Installation of Windows Xp went just fine. It works fine and everything is ok.
I Only thing I don't have on it is EmPowering. I tried to find it on Acer website, but no way
Acer :: 5738z EPower Button Will Not Work Windows 7 Upgrade
I have a 5738z and upgraded to windows 7. I had to do a clean install as I upgraded to x64 Win7 from x86 vista to use the 4gb of RAM the machine has. The upgrade went fine, no problems. All drivers installed fine and the machine runs great. My problem is that the ePower button will not work no matter what I try (it's the P button on other models) and it wont light up green. I've used the Acer upgrade disk, which installed the launch manager software, but the button still wont work.
Acer :: 6920G Speakers - Win7 & Empowering
if there's something wrong with my speakers on my newly bought 6920G. They are extremely oddly placed, at least what I think.
One of them is located to the right (below the screen as it should be). However the other one is placed more closed to the middle (below the screen) than to the left as I think it should be. This makes the sound coming from left to sound like coming from the front instead, which can't be right... Should it really be this way?
I should mention that I bought this PC from Acer with like 35-40% discount because it got sent back to Acer for repairs of the speakers actually. Did the assemble the left one incorrectly?
Check this picture. I've marked where the speakers are located with red circles.
I also wonder if here's ANY way to get the Empowering softwares to work in Windows 7 (RC1)? I can get them to START (ePower, eSettings), but they can't be used. I have them running in Vista compatibility mode already.
Acer :: Does My Laptop Have 1080p- And Empowering Tech Drivers For Windows 7
i have acer 8930g 644g32mn and was wondering if its fully HD. it says 1080playbak 16:9 cinematic or somat. i checked my screeen resolution and its 1680 x 945 so that means its not fully HD?
secondly i upgraded to windows 7 vie acer upgrade kit, not am having problems, when i swith my laptop off it wont shut off properly i see a blue screen for a few seconds and then it suddenly goes off, when i turn it on then i get a message like start windows normaly which appears if u just shut it off via the button. i think mavcafee is causing it, when i did a full scan it quarantined some files after that the laptop is actin a lil funny, this doesnt mean is macafee, i got malwarebytes and that did the same in fact iit messed it up completely than god i could do system recovery lol the laptop wudnt turn on.
and lastly how come acer empowering technology doesnt work any more i downloaded on it just crashes i dont think itrs compatible with win 7,
Acer :: ERecovery Management
1. Can anyone give me information on how to change the default drive for

2. Also, where can I find some useful info explaining the recovery procedure in the event of a system crash?
Acer :: EAudio Management
I have a stereo system hooked up to my computer through component style cables (Red/White) that connect through the headphone jack. If I switch eAudio Management to S/PDIF Digital Output, the sound works much better. But if I try and do something else, like switch to youtube, the audio wont play at all. If I go back to iTunes again, it also wont play. I have to close iTunes, switch eAudio to "Built-In Speakers", re-open iTunes, then switch back to S/PDIF. Its a pain to have to open and close iTunes all the time. The audio quality is much better with S/PDIF and dont want to have to sacrifice by leaving it on Built-In Speakers. My actual stereo plays when Built-In Speakers is selected (not the laptop speakers), the quality is just inferior. Are there any reasons for this? Is there any solution to fixing it so that the S/PDIF is always working?
Acer :: EData Security Management
I tried to create a document on the MS Word 2007 that came with my Acer TravelMate 5720 - XP, Office 2007. The completed docu was saved to My Documents. When I went to My Documents to open the file, the icon contained a red bar, was labeled as encrypted, and would not open. I tried saving another - same result. The Notepad documents I save are fine but the Excel files are encrypted too. When I try to open the encrypted Word.docx file, an Acer window pops up titled Acer eData Security Management and says "System setup must be completed before you can use Acer eData Security Management. Please click "Next" to start the setup." Apparently I have turned on the Acer eData Security Management system somehow. I am not interested in using the Acer eData Security Management. It would be easy to remove the program but then it would not be available should I ever decide differently. Any ideas any one would care to offer about how I may have accomplished turning on the Acer eData Security Management system, and most importantly, how do I turn it back off,
Acer :: 4810TZ: Power Management
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 :: 1810T Battery

Acer :: Webcam Of 1810T
I've found out that the webcam is a Suyin, I installed drivers from acer website.. and the result is still terrible.
The webcam is so slow, like 1 fps. Even when not in videocall and using acer crystal eye webcam to set it, it's slow, pixelated and sloow.. I don't mind about the colour, yellowish but adjustable, but I do mind about the fps and quality.
I guess it's a driver matter, because the driver installed is the microsoft's standard one. But I couldn't manage to get better results, also some of the settings like auto and white balance or camera control are not selectable.
Acer :: How Can I Save EAudio Management Settings
I have an Aspire 5720. The default mode for the eAuido Management is Movie (which means surround on). When I turn the computer on, I change that value to Music (surround off). However, there is no way to save my preferred mode (Music), and everytime, I have to bother with changing it from Movie to Music.
Is there a way to make "Music" the default mode of the eAudio Management?
Acer :: Aspire 5315 ENet Management
we switch from Comcast to Verizon Fios and now our laptops don't want to stay connected.

Does anyone know how to change it?
Acer :: 1810T And .11n Networking
I recently bought a N-wireless gigabit router. It is DLink DIR-655. It is reporting the connect to my 1810T AGN wireless is using G. I'm wondering why if my computer supports N and the router supports N, why am I not getting N?
When I checked properties of my wireless card in my 1810T it tells me it is a Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN. If I check the properties and it shows N is enabled. However, under Wireless Mode it is set to 802.11a/b/g. Also, while there are several options that include a, b, and g, there is no option for N.
Acer :: 1810T Screen Is Locking Up
After a few days of happy 1810T ownership, the computer has begun to have a problem where the screen locks up tight. Nothing revives the computer except holding the power button down to force a powerdown. It reboots OK but shows the screen to optionally boot into Safe Mode.
The screen is a random color when this happens: sometimes green, blue or red. It is NOT the traditional "blue screen of death".
At first I thought it was due to some problems I was having with a conflict between The KM Player and Adobe Flash (as detailed here and here, for example). Luckily I had done Acronis 2010 images at each step of the way in the "new notebook" process:
- image made right out of the box by booting from Acronis disc first, before ever running Win7 on the computer (I call this the "Day 0 Image")
- image made after doing Windows Updates, Windows Security Essentials, installing apps (KM Player, IrfanView, FireFox, etc) and user data
Thinking the problem was due to the KM Player conflicts, I restored the computer back to when there was no KM Player, i.e. out-of-the-box Day 0 Image. This went fine and Acronis worked smoothly.
I did the Windows Updates but did not install any apps or user data... and the screen lockup still happens! Sometimes it happens soon after login, other times things run OK for a while first.
I am really concerned about this. If I can't rely on the computer to not lock up regularly, it is essentially useless to me. I am very surprised to see the problem even after an "out of the box" disk restore.
Any suggestions? Even if you don't have knowledge of how to deal with this problem specifically, do you know where else I can ask? What will Acer's take on this be? I am afraid they will just pass it off as "user error" and leave me stuck...
1) I can't remember if this has happened only when on battery, or also when plugged in. I will check and see if it happens in both modes. If it only happens when on battery, at least that shows a path forward.
2) I have not tried to restore via the Acer eRecovery DVDs yet, though I don't know why this would be any better than the Acronis 2010 Day 0 image. I was in the process of burning the first Acer recovery DVD last night when... the screen locked up!
3) I have emailed Acer Support about the problem, though I suspect they won't trust Acronis 2010 and they'll tell me to restore via Acer eRecovery DVD...
Acer :: 1810t : Possible To Have Both Ssd And Hdd?
Is it possible to have both ssd and hdd? Ok there is not enough room for both, but, beside that, could it be possible to use at the same time ssd and hdd?
