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 :: 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 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 :: Overheat - 7738G

Apr 20, 2010

I have my 7738G(specs in sig) for 8 months now and did not have a problem til a week ago when I had my first reboot while playing Borderlands. I figured it must be the game or something since that problem did not repeat itself for a few days. I had to work all week long and I didn't get the chance to play B-lands and soon forgot about the problem.

Today I bought Lineage II Gracia Epilogue and I ran it at nat res with max settings with HDR rendering and all the flashy/fancy depth of field filters and effects turned on and guess what. My notebook keeps rebooting every 15 mins of gameplay even though I average at about 40~45 fps. Same thing happens with Borderlands, Call of Duty 4 and GRiD. Now this is really weird since my GPU temp idles at @ 47-50 degrees but whenever I start playing something it jumps to 78-80 degrees (must be the max amount til it reboots). My 4 core CPU idles at 49~54 and tops 78~81 when gaming. I want to ask you guys if you know any good method that could lower the temp, also could the high temp rates result from dust inside the machine(even though it isn't a year old), would a cooling pad make any difference?

Acer :: Why This HD Is So Cheap? ... Overheat Concern

Nov 7, 2008

I am going to upgrate my Acer 5672.

On tigerdirect I found 2 nice Hds

Seagate Momentus 7200.3 ST9250421AS 250GB Mobile Hard Drive - 2.5", 7200RPM, 16MB, SATA-300 for $74
and
Hitachi / TravelStar 7K200 / 200GB / 7200 / 16MB / 2.5" Mobile / SATA-150 / Hard Drive for $90

It seems to me first one is much better, more size , more speed, but I don't understand why it is cheaper.

One guy told me Segate's disks overheat laptops. Is it true ?....

So... why is it cheaper? I everything ok with this brand ?

I am also planning to add more memory, 4GB instead 1GB.

Should I be concern about overheat ?

Acer :: Aspire 5940G- Old Battery Death- CPU Overheat During Games

Jan 2, 2010

my Aspire 6920G.

So far got many issues with it like: a year-old battery death, CPU overheat during games, and driver issues with windows seven.
I am considering of buying a new laptop, the 5940G, which has these specs -

Display 15.6" (1366 x 768) / Intel Core i7-720QM (1.6 GHz) / RAM 4 GB / HDD 500 GB / ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 / Blu-ray / Wi-Fi / Buletooth / web-camera / Windows 7 Home Premium / 3 kg. $1939,00 (normal price as for Ukraine)

You can read a detailed review with pics over here [url]

What makes me think about this lap, is the Acer brand. So far i can say, that the batteries acer makes are crap, because the 6920G isn't the first laptop i experience problems with (especially the battery problem)

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 :: 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

purchased and installed a 1.6ghz tk-42 cpu in my ferrari one netbook, the bios detects it as a 1.6ghz cpu but i cannot get it to run @ 1.6ghz in windows without using 3rd party tools. tried reinstalling windows 64/32bit and it always boots @ 1.2ghz (default cpu clock).

I can run without my external graphics card fine @ 1.6ghz, with it the machine crashes constantly.

Acer :: Ferrari One Cant Change Desktop - Win 7

Jan 24, 2010

I have a Ferrari One netbook.

The default desktop background is the ferrari car with a calender.

When I go to change the desk top (right click, personalise, select a new theme eg window aero) and reboot the computer it starts up again in the Ferrari scheme! Any ideas?

for some reason the window to select all the different themes DOES NOT have an 'Ok' and 'Cancel' button on the bottom right? That's weird!

Acer :: Heating On Ferrari 4005

Feb 2, 2008

i have update my firmware to the new one, but it seems that it shut down at lower temperature.

but i have also upgrade my ram to 2 gb but its kingston value ram

and i have 2 operating system now, window xp and window vista ultimate

is it true that if i run the systerm on vista, it make the pc temperature hotter? and if run on high performance, its even higher than that?

at the moment im running window xp, running window media player watching videos, with 2 internet explorer running and also the everest ultimate edition which shows 63c for the cpu and 39c for hdd, and now im using those 4 fans notebook cooler.

is this temperature normal?

and sometime when just watching high definition video on window vista my laptop will shut itself down...

do u think its the ram which cause this problem? or is it window vista? or the new firmware which cause my laptop to shut itself down?
