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!

HP Pavilion G7-2235dx Networking :: Icons On Desktop Stopped Working / When Click On Them - It Goes Right Back To Desktop

Oct 22, 2014

I have the Pavilion g7-2235dx with Windows 8.1 operating system. Nearly every automatic update messes up my ability to get on the internet. The only way I can connect is to uninstall all of the updates. The icons on my desktop also stopped working. When I click on them, it goes right back to desktop. Can't pin them to the taskbar either. The ones on the taskbar won't open by clicking on them either. Have to right click and tell it to open. Also problem getting my Norton anti-virus to open. Says it working but can't open it.

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

May 18, 2010

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). Does anyone have any idea how I can sort this out? Possible bios hack etc?

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

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

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 :: (lock Up) Ferrari 4005

Sep 11, 2007

I've seen this somewhere, on a board (I think), but whenever I press firmly to the right of the touchpad, about an inch, the computer will freeze up every time. Sometimes typing, like right now, will do it. Any ideas? Acer Tech said they're never heard of it.

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 5000 Boot

Feb 14, 2010

I've had a ferrari 5000 for over a year now and never had any problems with it until today. When I power on my laptop it boots up to the Ferrari picture where it has the "Press F2 to enter setup" and it just stays there. I try and press F2 to enter set up but none of the keys on the keyboard seem to work. It just stays frozen on that picture.

I'm able to use the CD ROM but it still leaves me in the same place.

Acer :: Ferrari 1000 Review

Jun 13, 2009

Acer Ferrari 1000

Introductions

The Acer Ferrari 1000 is the fifth incarnation of the Acer Ferrari line. The Ferrari line was brought as a joint effort between Acer and AMD. The Ferrari part comes into play as both Acer and AMD are sponsors of the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 racing team. First impressions of the Acer Ferrari 1000 notebook brought about an impulsive need to purchase. This notebook sets itself apart from the crowd with performance and styling which will get it noticed on your trip to the local coffee house or anywhere for that matter. The Acer Ferrari 1000 is typically categorized as an ultra-compact notebook being that it is only a 12.1 inch notebook. This was one of the primary reasons that this reviewer had for purchasing the Acer Ferrari 1000. At the time this reviewer was looking for a notebook the primary concerns were small, lightweight and the ability to support 4GB or memory. The Acer Ferrari 1000 met all these needs and even delivered more. However, the Ferrari 1000 did not come cheap at an MSRP $1999.

The Ferrari 1000 was the first Ferrari to feature a 12.1 inch chassis, where previous generations were either a 15 or 15.4 inch chassis. Acer meticulously was able to engineer all the style, performance, and quality of the Ferrari line into a small 12.1 inch chassis. Furthermore, they just about got it right on the first try.

SpecificationsBrand Acer
Model Ferrari 1000
Processor AMD Turion X2 TL-60 Dual Core 2Gz, 1MB L2 cache (512KB per core)

Acer :: Are These Temps Normal For Ferrari One 200

Apr 1, 2010

i have already re seat my heatsink and replace the stock TIM with a better thermal paste which is the OCZ Freeze.

now i cant seem to remember and i also forgot to record thru OCCT the idle temps of the cpu at stock 1.2ghz clock.

i am wondering if it is normal if my idle temp now after my replacement of the stock TIM and reseating are ranging from 39 celsius up to 45 celsius while its load/slight apps would get these temps to 50 celsius going up to 54 celsius.

Acer :: Ferrari 5002 Review

Dec 13, 2007

First of all I have been thinking that why here is no such Review Available for this computer up till now. Anyhow I got this one but I was expecting it to be 5005 with 2.2 Ghz but anyhow I got better price too. I got this one for around 1000 US $ where 5005 was around 1800$.

My computer Specificaitons are:

Processor: AMD Turion (tm) 64 x2 Mobile TL-50 1.6 Ghz
RAM: 2GB
HD: 120 GB (5400RPM) SATA
VGA: ATI x1600 (512 with 256 Hyper Memory
Operatting System: XP Media Center

Other specifications can be requested. I was really very much willing to have review of this laptop over this computer that i hardly found. Though I did found nice pictures of this computer in the pictures section. Uptill now I am not able to get any nice score form this comptuer as I was expecting due to which now I am thinking I should have gone for Aspire 5920G as it comes with Nvidia 8600GT and having Ferrari was not a good choice as I am casual gamer. But its appearance and overall outlook is very attractive. Specially the name: FERRARI though Ferrari is not performing upto its name. My old system was.
Acer Aspire 5651 AWLMi
Core Duo: 1.73 Ghz
RAM: 2GB
HD: 120 GB (5400 RPM) SATA
VGA: Nvidia 7600 (128 MB)......................

Feb 25, 2008

I have an Acer Ferrari 3400 and i just replaced my hard drive with a 160 GB drive, however the computer only sees about 131 GB. I've read abit about the 137 GB limit and wanted to know if the motherboard/BIOS for this model supports 48 bit LBA so that i can see the remaining space on the hard drive. I have windows XP pro service pack II installed, but i don't know how to activate 48 bit addressing or if my BIOS suppoerts it.
