Acer :: Ferrari 4000 Missing "Format" Option In DVD Drive Property

May 9, 2009

When I click on the DVD-RAM drive (E, there is no "Format" option available (missing).

That means that when inserting a blank DVD or CD media in the drive, I cannot format using the operating system format option; however, I can burn DVDs under other (3rd party) media editing programs.

How can I add the "Format" onto the list of other available options such as Eject etc.

By the way, the Operating System is Windows XP 64 bit (with all the latest updates) installed on a Ferrari 4000.

The DVD Drive make is MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-845S with the FD-200 firmware installed.

Acer :: Ferrari 4000 HDD Upgrade

Oct 22, 2009

I have a Acer Ferrari 4000 AMD Turion 64 2GHz, and I'm trying to upgrade the internal HDD to an SDD drive (IDE interface) - it's a Photofast G-Monster-IDE SSD 90R/70W 128GB

The drive is working OK - I have conneceted it to the machine via a USB adapter, and partitioned it with no problem, I've also cloned the existing HDD onto the SSD with clonezilla.

But when I put it in the laptop it won't get past the initial splash page with "press F2 for setup" prompt and nothing happens. If I press F2 to enter the Bios, it just says "please wait" and never enters the bios configuration.

The bios version is S3A27

Acer :: Ferrari 4000 Overheat

Jun 4, 2008

After using my ferrari for about 3 years now it's been with me in a lot of different places, climates, dust conditions and so forth. Lately I started to notice that the laptop was kind of hot , and the primary use of my laptop is internet browsing and office applications so no heavy cpu or gpu loads. The heat was annoying problem but not annoying enough to make me do any actions. But a week ago I noticed that when I watch flash based videos (like youtibe) laptop gets really hot and after 15-20min it just shuts off or reboots . This was annoying as shit. I tried things like putting it on a try of ice, didn't help, and since I don't believe in "gay" things like those cooling pads I decided to get to the root of the problem .

First thing I noticed was that the flow of hot air from the grill around the cpu was very weak, this gave me the hint that the radiator is probably stuck with dust. The solution I came to is simple: open the body clean it and see how it works.............

Acer Aspire V3 471G :: Advanced Startup Option Missing

Mar 1, 2015

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. I don't know if it's because I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 but I used that previously when I need to go to safe mode. Suddenly it disappeared. I can only pick two options, "Continue to Windows 8.1" and "Turn off the PC".

Acer :: How To Restore Or Format Hard Drive

Feb 15, 2010

My wifes Extensa 5620 got a virus. Office Depot removed it with MalBytes. I'm still leary of something being missed. I would really like to restore it to factory defaults.

When I go into Acer eRecovery Management I see pick the Restore tab at the bottom of the window.

Now I am given the choices to

1.Restore system factory default.

2.(Which is grayed out and option not avaialable) Restore form users backup

3.Recover from CD/DVD

4.Reinstall applaications/drivers.

So I pick 1. Restore system factory default.

Next I am asked for the empowering technology password. Well I don't have it and don't know how to get it. I would choose number 2. if it were an option. If I place the disk I made into the CD/DVD unit will the option become available? I tried option 3. and it said to place the restore disk inthe drive.

Acer :: Delete Vista Partitions, Format Hard Drive, Reinstall Vista ...

Feb 21, 2009

Background:

A few days ago i bought an Acer 7730 laptop with Windows Vista pre-installed and no disks. After initial hesitation i have decided to keep vista and not downgrade to XP. After all there will be more service packs and tweaking should speed it up lots anyway.

However, i really want to get rid of the three partitions on the hard drive. There is only one physical hard drive but there are three partitions; a hidden 10GB one (EISA configuration) which from what i have gathered is now obsolete, a C: partition 111.44GB and a D: partition 111.44GB. There is no need to split a drive into several partitions now that we have the NTFS file system (unless you are using multiple operating systems of course - but i am not) so this is really annoying me.

I have made the 2 recovery DVD and the 1 applications/drivers DVD. I have an old WinXP disk that i can use to format the laptop if required.

Question:

Using the recovery disks (which i'm assuming contain a copy of my bought OEM Vista that was pre-installed on the laptop), can i delete the partitions, format the hard drive and install Vista onto a single c: partition?

I've done this exact process before with WinXP hundreds of times but i'm not sure whether i can do the same for Vista with just the 3 DVD mentioned...

Acer :: Travelmate 4404WLMi Missing Hard Drive Caddy

Jan 12, 2008

I've just run into a major headache with a Travelmate 4404WLMi given to me by a friend. It appears that when he decided to keep the hard drive, he also lost track of the hard drive caddy for the machine.

I haven't had too much luck finding a caddy on eBay. I think part of the problem is, though I was able to find a service manual for the computer, Acer seems to have gotten confused and listed the part number for the TM4000 caddy in the service manual instead of this one. There's a picture right next to it for a caddy that looks entirely different from where the screw holes are on my 4404. The notebook disassembly guide is also all wrong for this unit.

Now, my question is, in the search for caddies on eBay I happened to notice that the one for the Aspire 3610 looks exactly like what I need. Would anyone happen to know if that caddy's the solution to my dilemma?

Dell :: Use A Desktop To Format Notebook Drive?

Mar 17, 2009

I want to use my desktop to install XP on a notebook drive that I will then put in an Insiron 8000 notebook. It's too long to explain why I don't just use the notebook to do this.

So, is it possible to do with the PC? I assume I have to get a special type of connecting cable, but can it power the external notebook drive and can the data transfer handle a Windows full install and, finally, from where on the PC do I connect it?

Dell :: Precision M4400- 2nd Hard Drive Option, E-Modular Bay

Feb 5, 2009

I'm trying to understand the options available for a secondary hard drive on the Precision M4400. When configuring a new M4400, a 'Second Hard Drive' option is shown, but the only options are either a 120GB 5400rpm HD 'E-Module' or 64GB SSD 'E-Module'. It also says the following:
Quote:

"Modular secondary storage devices can be used in both the system as well as in an External E-Modular Bay. They do not come with an external E-Modular Bay".

Here are my questions:
1) What does the 'E-Module' after the 120GB HD and 64GB SSD mean?
2) What is the Exterenal E-Modular Bay mentioned? A docking station or similar?
3) Could these options also apply to a Latitude E6500, although not offered directly from Dell?

Acer :: Ferrari One 200

Nov 13, 2009

I got the Acer Ferrari One 200 2 days ago (win7 64bit home premium). I noticed it has a hibernation problem. It goes to sleep for no reason. Very annoying. I tried tweaking ALL the power settings but still it will go to sleep for no reason. Hibernation on this laptop is erratic. I emailed Acer about this and still waiting for a reply. Bummer!

I also have a compaq cq40 with almost thesame specs with the Acer Ferrari One. turion x2, ati 780g chipset. My Compaq running win7 64bit Ultimate RC does not have hibernating issues. This really baffles me. Is this a windows 7 bug? or am I having hardware issues?

Acer :: 6920 - Format Whole HDD

Apr 8, 2010

I was under Windows Seven when i got some virus problems. i format my whole HDD and start to have some problems. sometimes the computer randomly stops. Often when i'm copying files or defrag the disk. there, my laptop seems very hot. it shutdown when I play (whatever the game played the temperature are (according to SpeedFan) about 100C))

I firstly think about dust. so i have clean by removing the trap at the bottom and cleaning the ventilation holes.

That change nothing. my computers stops 10 minutes after the game's started. but it boot right now after it stops, (i've head that in case of a too ward hardware the computer will not boot right now after it stops) metimes after a program ask a reboot and i say yes , the fan don't work at all after the reboot.

Acer :: 5920 Format

Aug 12, 2009

here we go......formated my laptop and removed XP, had vista on it at new but wiped it when i got it.

So i wiped it last night and reinstalled XP again, thought i had all the drivers but my device manager is showing Video Controller and Network Controller are not installed correctly.

Would the Network controller stop my wireless working because thats my main problem
getting my wireless set up. I even tried resorting back to Vista with the alt-F10 buttons but all its doing is bleaping.

Can i get it back to Vista, my daughter says she wants it and where exactly do i get the drivers i mentioned i'm missing.

Once windows xp is installed do i go to control panel and set up wireless ? if i remember i'm sure it all went on automatic the 1st time i wiped it.

Acer :: Ferrari Wallpaper

Jun 26, 2009

"Upgraded" one of my acer laptops to Vista from XP and now the beautiful Ferrari wallpaper doesn't function properly. I moved the folder from a different (XP) machine onto the Vista one, and it almost works. If I double-click the "FerrariWP.exe" file, the wallpaper shows up and with the correct date - however it never updates and it stays on the same day. If I uninstall and double-click again-everything is ok until the next day

My guess is that there is a slightly different version needed for Vista, and since Acer did ship many of these laptops with Vista preinstalled, there has to be (Ok, I'm hoping there is) a version floating around somewhere that is Vista-compatible.

Not the end of the world, but I've gotten really used to having that great looking calendar on the desktop and I'm not ready to give it up yet..

Acer :: Ferrari One Opinions

Nov 5, 2009

Would it be a match for a Celeron t1600 with GMA4500 graphics? (My wifes' laptop has this spec)

Bear in the following: I would be using it for college (if I'm accepted) and would need to run VMWare etc. Youtube and browsing etc. I also use handbrake for transcoding.

My budget is less than 500.

The killer about all this is that I had to sell my XPS m1530 with T9300 and 4gig RAM cos

I had an offer I couldn't refuse.

One of the reasons I was looking at the above "laptop" was for portability, cos I would be going to college on the motorbike. I have a well specced P4 pc for the home.

Another reason is because it has the 1366*768 screen with dual core cpu and discreet graphics. Nothing compared to what I had before, but needs must
