Acer :: Aspire 1690

Feb 24, 2008

I have a aspire 1690, my problem is when I start it up the screen shows what I can only describe as looking through obscure glass with letters and numbers randomly placed all over.When I start in safe mode I can just make out enough to browse desktop but in normal mode its bluescreen and dumping to memory.I know everything is working in the backround as I can browse my computer etc. Cant make enough out after pressing alt>f10 to perform a restore from disk. checked the fan is working thinking it might be overheating but this is working fine.

Acer :: Old Aspire 1690 WLMi + New Hard Drive Vs. New Laptop

Jan 14, 2010

My old Aspire 1690WLMi runs Windows 7, but can`t run Aero cause it has an integrated graphics card. Hard drive space is super tight since it`s only 80gb. Thinking of getting a new laptop around $1000, but also considering just getting a new 320gb hard drive for $100. What do you think i should do - new laptop or new hard drive.

Acer :: Aspire One RAM Upgrade- GMA 950

Dec 9, 2008

Right now my Aspire one only has 1GB of RAM, which I guess is enough but 1.5GB won't hurt it at all. I was curious about the size and speed.

IF I bought a 2GB stick of RAM would it be regocnized? Also If I bought 800 MHz RAM what would it be clocked down to? Right now it's running at 533 Mhz I think, but CPU-Z is saying it's PC-5300 RAM. CPU-Z also says that I have one empty slot? What's that about? I thought that the Aspire One has 512MB built in and had one slot for a stick of RAM? Any ideas about CPU-Z is saying?

As all of you folks know, nearly every netbook has the GMA 950. The Aspire One is no exception to this. My One's BIOS will not let me choose the amount of RAM it's using for graphics. It says 8MB in a greyed out form. This means it's adaptive though because I can play AOE3 on it which requires 64MB. How can I choose how much RAM it uses?

Acer :: Aspire 6930G Upgrade

Jun 25, 2009

This is my current laptop:
Acer Aspire 6930G
T5800
4 GB RAM
500 GB 7200 RPM
9600M GS

I've upgraded my HDD recently and now have a spare. I've though about adding in a second one into the second bay but those two legs are in the way. Has anyone found a distributor for the hard drive bay door that allows a second HDD or can anyone who has shaved off the legs tell me how much would be a safe length to shave off and what tool would be best for the job.

I've also considered getting a T9900 online (after being put down that it can't support quad cores) and I'm wondering if anyone has successfully installed a T9900 into a Aspire 6930 or 6930G. It sounds fine theoretically but I'm not sure if the CPU would fry my motherboard or not without proper BIOS support. My BIOS is currently on version 3204 and for odd reason, Windows says I have no administrative privileges when I try to phlash it, so I haven't been able to phlash it to version 3236. If I can upgrade it to a T9900, I'm wondering if anyone who has done it before can make a short guide. I remember lucino mentioning that it is more difficult than most laptops.

I've also read on the forums somewhere on a post by aditya900 that the 6930G can supposedly support more than 4 GB of RAM, has anyone verified this? Since messing with video rendering programs and hosting GMod servers tend to use up a lot of RAM, I'm very interested in sticking in a 4 GB stick to get 6 GB.

I'm also interested in getting a ATI 4670 if it does come out in the MXM-II factor or the GT 130M or whatever is the most powerful at the time . I've cracked open the case and the video card is right at the top next to the removable plate.. I'm hoping that you can just slide out the card or do you have to disassemble the case and remove the motherboard in order to upgrade the video card. I'm really hoping it's not the latter. I am wondering if anyone has done this before......................

Acer :: CPU And GPU Upgrade On Aspire 6930G

Jul 24, 2009

how to change the CPU (the GPU is easy) in 6930G.

This is a vague guide and quite clumsy so I have no responsibility whatsoever if you damage your laptop or you lose your data or anything bad happens to your laptop or you etc.

I have to mention though that there is another guide written by lucino but unfortunately he hasnít finished it and there are no photos. His guide looks more appropriate and safer than mine which is a bit risky but much quicker. Here is the link. lucino's guide
I am not sure if there is an update or if he is planning to include photos and finish the guide.

You will need a cross-head screwdriver around 3.0mm (you donít say!!!) but also a flat one

Please use some kind of protection from ESD (electrostatic discharge) like an antistatic or grounding strap or gloves. This will prevent the static sensitive components from being ruined (memory, video card, motherboard etc).

Sometimes I donít use it but I know how to discharge myself (i.e. by touching a metallic surface) before touching the laptop........................

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Upgrade

Oct 18, 2008

I am using this machine over a year, its ok. I am working animation, compositing, sound design and music.So i want to make some changes on this pc.I need some recommendations, ideas about these:

1)I m using 2gb of ram and i want to max this to 4 gb. Is there any specific brand that you can say "good" and i also wonder how much mhz use max, recently i m using 667 and i want to buy what ddr2 offers max if there is no any adaptation issue.

2)I also need a 7200rpm harddisk. But i know nothing about laptop hdds. I m thinking for the best hdd as possible.But, i dont know what hdds are avalible for this Acer model, or is it not necessary something like that.

3) Finally, I ve created an Acer backup DVD, i wonder how easy to setup the computer if i change the hdd? I mean is it going to be licensed and free of problems like before.I used recovery once before, but with Empowering T software. Never did with a DVD.

Acer :: Aspire 6930 Cpu Upgrade

Dec 10, 2008

i am considering an upgrade of my cpu but am not sure wich cpu to buy. Either T9600 or P9600. I know P9600 works cooler and consumes less power, but i dont actualy know how much lower it's performance is. (got my information here and some on intel's website)

My current config is:
Intel Core2Duo P7350 2.0ghz
Geforce 9600M GS 512mb DDR2
3gigs ddr2 ram.

I'd like to increase the gaming performance mostly, so is the cpu upgrade worth it considering the cost?

Acer :: Aspire 7720G Upgrade

Dec 6, 2009

Recently I had a little upgrade adventure of my Aspire 7720G, replaced the nV 8400M GS with 9600M GT 512MB, added 4GB DDR2 @ 667MHz, and then I decided to upgrade the CPU also. I was thinking about T9500 for a long time, then I came across Intel's X9000 CPU (OEM, not the ES). I installed it, BIOS recognized it, Windows also (Win 7 Ultimate x64), but then I noticed something strange. It works only at 1.2GHz, in idle and in 100% load, when it should be at 2.8GHz. I tried my luck with power schemes, I have the latest BIOS, updated drivers and no change at all. CPU-Z reports it works at 1.2GHz all the time with a multiplier x6, it should be at x14. RMClock didn't help me at all, CPUgenie also. Old CPU was T7300, it was also working at 1.2GHz with multiplier x6 in idle but in 100% load the multiplier jumped to x10 and it worked at full speed; 2GHz. Windows Experience Index with T7300 was 5.1, for X9000 is 3.9!

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Cpu Upgrade

Oct 17, 2009

I recently replaced the T5550 cpu in my Aspire 5920 with a T9500 (SLAYX). I bought the T9500 on E-bay as new, SLAYX, installed it and it works fine. Two different programs (CPU-Z and PC Wizard 2008 identify this processor as a T9500 (ES). The cpu had the SLAYX marking on the top. Is it possible I bought an engineering sample cleverly disguised as SLAYX?

Acer :: Aspire One HDD And Memory Upgrade

Oct 15, 2008

Considering an Aspire One right now because it is less expensive than the others. I have a 512MB RAM (DDR2-PC5300) and 80GB 2.5" SATA HDD from my Thinkpad (which I upgraded both). So, I think maybe I could buy the Aspire One the cheapest version (8GB I guess).

So, is it can be done? I know that there is SATA version of the Aspire One but not sure the connector will be there in the SSD version. Try to google it but found only SSD upgrade....

Acer :: Aspire 1410 CPU Upgrade

Dec 1, 2009

I read a great review on the 1410 and decided to buy it. Been very happy with it, but discovered that it was the Celeron 743 and not the Core 2 Solo. I didn't realize that until I bought it from Newegg; just thought there was only one CPU offered.

So, my question is, can I upgrade the CPU? If so, what CPUs can I use and has anyone taken an 1410/1810 apart and posted pics or a guide?

Acer :: Aspire 5003WLMi CPU Upgrade

Mar 31, 2009

Two upgrade questions. I've done some homework, but I'm not definitively sure about it.

CPU Upgrade.

Okay, the laptop has a Turion 64 ML-32. The chipset is a SiS M760GX.

On the SiS website, it says it supports Athlon 64 CPUs.

[url]

I would like to know, is it possible to upgrade my CPU from Turion 64 to Athlon 64 safely and second, what is the most powerful CPU I could use on this laptop.

Second is the HDD.

This is what they say about HDD.

SATA & RAID functions
Provides 2 independent SATA ports, compliant with Serial ATA 1.0 Specification, and supports RAID 0, 1, and JBOD configuration.

ATA133 enhancement
Fastest storage support. Increasing data/file transfer rate.

[url]

Clearly it is an old chipset, but what does this mean and can I upgrade from the 60GB I have today cheaply. What do I have to look for.

Acer :: Aspire 7530 Cpu/gpu Upgrade

Sep 27, 2009

after being let down today with a 6920g order (out of stock). The company have instead offered me a 7530 with 9300m gpu, my question guys is can I upgrade it to maybe a 9600m gs, and the same for the cpu, however i'm not 100% sure which cpu it has yet I think its a turion x2 rm?.

It also has 320hdd and a 1400x900 screen, and blue ray/ dvd/dl, does it have 2 hdd bays?

I feel like my heads about to pop after so much research over the last 6 days,

And I would love to hear your general opinions on this model too, good or bad.

There seems to be very little on goole about it, I can't find a review anywhere.
