i would like to know the significance of the second set of numbers on this computer....acer aspire 5720-4230. what is the 4230? im thinking of getting this laptop for my college kid. ive found some pretty low priced ones. im more concerned with dependability than looks or speed.
here are the specs on it:

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?
"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..
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.
yesterday upgraded cpu in ferrari one with 2.4GHz AMD Turion Dual Core TL66 processor, also upgraded Ram to 4gig. laptop is a bit random, but works ok, have tested a couple of games on it and it seems ok for now, although is running a bit hot? not sure if this is going to cause any problems? have also flashed bios..any ideas as to what could go wrong? ram and cpu from my dead ferrari 1100
The original cpu was a 1.2GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual coreprocessor, acer tech guys said it was not upgradeble...
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?
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.
I have a acer ferrari as you can see in my sig and up untill now i have been using the 32bit xp which came with it . I wanted to know if anyone of you guys has installed the 64 bit version and if it rus better on it and if the driver support etc is fine?
Has anyone tried installing windows 7 on their ferrari 1000? How has your experience with it been? Can you get everything such as the orbi cam, wi-fi, etc. working? I'm on linux now and am pretty intrigued by what windows 7 has to offer. I want to try it out but Acer doesn't have any drivers available yet.
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.
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.............
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.
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.

Acer Ferrari 4000.. Ive upgraded pretty much everything on it from mem to hdd.. Now I would like to buy some faster Turion from ebay and try it on my baby.. Currently I have Turion ML-30 (1.6GHz) I wonder whats fastest CPU supported by MB of this mobo ? ML-40 (2,2GHz)? Are there some specs arround on net about this stuff?
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.
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)......................
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.
