Acer :: Extensa 4420 Video Driver

May 9, 2009

I recently pruchased an Acer Extensa 4420 and converted from VISTA to XP. I am having problems with installing the video driver. I down loaded the video driver from ACER's web site but it will not install. I had to down load the wireless driver from Dell and I was wondering if there was a similar trick for the video driver.

Acer :: Extensa 4420 Improving Video

Dec 7, 2009

This machine comes with the ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 integrated card and 2gb of RAM. In Bios I see allocated memory set at 256mb and it goes no higher.

I was thinking of increasing RAM to 4gb. What I am trying to do is watch video, for example, tv programs on Hulu and what I get now is choppy picture and freezing.

Would increasing RAM to the max of 4gb correct this or not?

Acer :: Extensa 4420-5817 Display Driver

Nov 3, 2008

I have wiped out Vista from this machine and installed XP Professional. All have been installed fine except Wireless and Display drivers. I got wireless driver from gateway and it worked great.

I have done every thing as outlined in different threads on this forum and all other resources including acer north america and europe sites to install display driver but i still keep on getting the "set up did not find a driver compatible with your hardware or operating system" error.

The display driver specified on the sticker is 896 MB ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 Hyper Memory.

I am able to install the "SMBUS v.5.10.1000.6" from acer europe site without any problem.

I have upgraded the BIOS also to v1.18 from v1.17.

All the rest of the drivers i am able to install from the Vista Application and Driver back up DVD including the webcam that i created before taking out vista.

This machine is AMD Athelon 64X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-57.

Acer :: Extensa 4420- Error Message (update Your ATI Graphics Driver)

Dec 18, 2008

Every time I start up my Extensa 4420, I get the following error message window:

"The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your ATI graphics driver, or enable your adapter using the Displays Manager."

Why is this happening? If I go into the device manager, it says that the graphics adapter is working. If I tell it to check for updated drivers it says that the driver I have installed is the most current one. Everything seems to work fine on the computer. How can I stop the message from popping up every time?

Acer :: Extensa 4420- CPU Temps

Oct 13, 2008

I have the extensa 4420, today I was in class and I was just typing notes and I noticed that my cooling fan was quite noticable so I turned the fan always on function to "off" and the fan turned off and it was nice and quiet. i watched the temps hover around 38 but when the temps hit 41 (according to NHC) the fan kicked in at a good low speed. the NHC was setting the CPU to stay at 800mhz per core so I was wondering if that is a good temp? I have experience in using thermal paste, would that help lower the temps enough to stay under 41 degrees?

Acer :: Extensa 4420 Ram Upgrade To 3GB

Oct 14, 2008

I am considering upgrading my 4420-5239. If I add a 2GB stick to make it 3gb, do you think it will be any better?

I am also considering replacing the HDD with SSD. My machine just gets too hot, so I am wondering if switching to SSD will cool it down...

My Extensa 4420 has a webcam. I can turn it on and see ugly pictures of me staring at the computer screen. The question I have, is what can I do with the camera. The computer does not seem to have come with any software that I can use to record video. Is there any free software that will do this?

Acer :: Extensa 4420 - PQSERVICE Factory Setting

Jul 29, 2009

my Acer Extensa 4420. A few days ago while on my laptop the BSOD suddenly popped up and my laptop shut down. A restarted it and while it did log in, I got notices saying a lot of stuff was corrupt. I ran chkdsk to see if i could diagnose the issue, and it stated the system volume was corrupt. As time went by using windows became erratic. I decided to try to restore my acer back to factory settings using the eRecovery program. This program would stop working every time right before the process began. Eventually windows stopped booting up at all. leaving my at a boot screen the endlessly looped. I installed Ubuntu shortly after, and managed to get my PQSERVICE partition recognized by the GRUB bootloader and Ubuntu itself (as a mounted drive). The problem is that whenever I do boot to the PQSERVICE partition and look through the options in the recovery center, there is no restore to factory default settings.

Acer :: Bluetooth Drivers For Extensa 4420-5910

Jan 31, 2009

I have been looking for the bluetooth drivers for my Acer Extensa 4420-5910 for a week with no luck. I believe they are Broadcom drivers but I am not sure. None of the drivers on Acer's website work. Broadcom's download page is also down. Driverguide does not appear to have them either. Acer doesn't have a "Parts List" for this laptop so they cannot tell me exactly what bluetooth drivers I will need, and unfortunately I am not about to crack a new laptop open to find out. At the minimum if someone could just tell me what the name of the correct driver is I would be satisfied. This is for 32-bit Vista.

Acer :: Extensa 4420 Wireless And Wired Internet

Oct 27, 2008

i got an Extensa 4420, and after hearing everyone say vista is out, I installed XP.

Im new to PC's [been a mac user for years] and this is confusing me.
The laptop has 2 partitions - C: and D:
Vista is on C: so i installed xp on D:

It appears that i can now only access XP and cannot ever boot into vista off C: is that true?

Also, when running XP i have no internet via the ethernet cable nor the wireless card that comes with this laptop. Can someone explain what drivers i need to install to make those work?

I got the Extensa_4200 driver folder off the website, but i am clueless as to which need to be installed - as im new to PC.
Any advice is much appreciated.

I have successfully figured out the audio and video drivers but now i need the internet and wireless to work.

Acer Extensa 4420 :: Cannot Recover System - ERecovery Will No Longer Run

Oct 4, 2014

I purchased the factory "Recovery" CDs. The problem is they will not recover the system.

Also on a 2nd HD I find that the Acer program eRecovery will no longer run.

This appears that Acer sels computers and doesn't provide the software needed to do basic recovery actions we could do under W-95

Acer will also sell you a "Recovery" CD sets that do not actually allow you to recover your system so you have a functioning PC.

 V2.5.4015 is what I show in my corrupt file.

Acer :: Calling All SamaritansMy Extensa 4420-5237 Will Not Complete A Vista Home Premium (retail) Installation

Jun 21, 2009

This is a laptop without Recovery Discs, where the original drive partitions were erased and reformatted as 1 big partition. During Vista installation, it always reboots just as Vista is on the verge of "Completing Installation". So near and yet so far. The BIOS shows the hard drive as an IDE drive - even though this is clearly a SATA drive. Is this a driver problem? Do I need to load SATA drivers before having Vista go through the installation?

Acer :: Extensa 5620 XP X64 Display Driver

Sep 25, 2008

I bought this laptop yesterday and formatted a Fedora x86-64 & Windows XP x64.

I could not find any drivers for the video card for Windows XP x64 or any version of linux. In fact, I couldn't find any drivers at all, not even x86.

All I know about the video card is there's a sticker that says "Up to 1279MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT HyperMemory".

I tried the HD 2400 series driver for xp x64 from ATI.com but when I try to install it, it says: "Setup was unable to find compnents that can be installed on your current hardware or software configuration. Please make sure you have the required hardware or software."

Acer :: : Can't Install Driver Video Under Vista 32 Bit

Jul 7, 2009

I have just received an Acer 5935 and I have already formatted and reinstalled Vista 32 Ultimate SP2.

The laptop has two video cards: a nVidia GT130 1GB and an Intel GM4500.

I downloaded the latest nVidia WHQL notebook driver (186.03) for my graphic card but i can't install it.

The installation stops and I have the following message: "hardware not recognised".

I am obliged to use the older Acer driver and you know they never update it to the latest and most performant release.

Anyway, it's not because of the two graphic cards...

I have had the same problem with a Dell Studio 1555 which has an ATi HD4570 512MB.

I tried the latest modded Catalyst (6.6) and I was obliged to install Dell's driver... but I could install the same driver on another laptop (Dell Studio 1535) with a HD3450.

Acer :: Aspire 8930G / 9650m GT Video Driver

Apr 13, 2010

I have bought nVidia GeForce 9650M GT 1GB DDR2 MXM II Graphics Card from ebay. Aspire 8930G is listed by the seller as one of the laptops that supports the card.

I have changed the card very carefully. My previous card was 9600m GS DDR2 512mb MXM II.

At the moment the laptop does recognize the card, however sees it as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

Here is my GPU-Z screen shot.
[url]

And this is what it should look like after installing nVidia video driver. (So I believe)
w ww.aliexpress.com/product-fm-img/288728719-NVIDIA-GeForce-9650M-GT-Graphics-Card-Acer-Asus-wholesalers.html

However when I try to install nVidia drivers from the nVidia website, the setup informs me the following: "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."

Has anyone tried 9650m GT with their Acer laptops? Did it work? Does anyone have a solution in my case?

Acer :: ATI Mobility Driver For The HD 2400XT Video Card (TM 6592)

Jan 1, 2008

Where do I find a mobility driver for my Acer TravelMate 6592 with a HD 2400XT video card?

The one on Acers site is acting weird.

I get no additional tabs under Display Properties -> Settings -> Advanced.
(so no way to manage tv out, powerplay or things like that)

Starting the ATI Catalyst Control Center only give me a chance to change resolution.

some desktop settings which are grayed out and nothing else.

It looks like some kind of initial settings/wizzard or so, but I can't get past this.

I can find no Mobility driver for the HD 2400XT card on ATI's own site.

Newest mobility driver (direct link) won't install, as the hardware isn't supported.

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 Intel GS45 Express Chipset drivers just as recommended on this forum Acer 1410, 1810, 3810, 4810, 5810 Timeline Drivers, Software, Tweaks and Settings FAQ

Here a screenshot:
