Acer :: HWmonitor Showing Only 1 Core. 6925g

May 13, 2009

is this normal? Core 2duo t9400 2.53ghz. BIOS 1.1 (1.07 originally)

I ran the cpu on high, and windows task manager does show two panes. in cpuz, it shows clock speed as 1500mhz, but it jumps to 2500 mhz when I do something process intensive.

also it is always at 17 degrees c, even when I ran the 3dmark cpu test.

Apple :: Core I7 IMacs Showing Up DOA And With Cracked Screens

Nov 24, 2009

[url]

Quote:

Apple's new Core i7-based iMac might be a performance monster, but it looks like the whole family's having some problems getting out of the gate: in addition to the previously-noted performance issues with the Core 2 Duo models, a quick glance across Apple's support forums and on other Mac boards around the web reveals that some machines are showing up DOA and / or with cracked screens. We're a little more familiar with the DOA issue, since the new i7 we just bought doesn't boot at all, but the cracked screen issue seems to be equally common and mostly affecting the bottom left corner, from what we can tell. Now, our review Core 2 Duo 27-inch iMac is perfectly fine, and Chris Ziegler's new Core i7 machine doesn't have any problems either, so these obviously aren't universal issues, but if you're about to stick one of these under the tree for someone it might be wise to do some surreptitious testing first.

Wouldn't surprise me if it was happening during shipping, the box my MBP came in had a big hole in it. (luckily it was double boxed) Maybe they have a problem with their packaging design.

Acer :: Dual Core SU2300 Benchmarks Vs Single Core SU3500 - 1410

Nov 3, 2009

I bought the Acer 1410 with the single core SU3500 Core 2 Solo CPU. It looks like Acer decided to release them with the SU2300 now, which is dual core at 1.2GHz (compared with 1.4GHz of SU3500).

Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing the two, and/or if they have a solid understanding how much better it would perform compared with the SU3500? I also see that the single core AS1410 with Celeron M @ 1.3GHz sells at the same price as the dual core.

Acer :: Upgraded Core Solo T1350 To Core 2 Duo T7200 On Aspire 5570 Guide

Jan 23, 2009

(UPDATES: DIY Bluetooth module guide added below)

upgrading my Aspire 5570 notebook more than a year ago. This time, Iím feeling lucky to share some of my experiences about how I finally upgraded my CPU from a Core Solo T1350Core 2 Duo T7200.

Again, thanks to everybody here in Notebookreview forum especially adinu, hoggie, Mack1982, TehSuigi, krazyphire and bigozone for their insights and knowledge that helps me a lot throughout the whole process. So, letís get started!

Pre-upgrading

Please refer to these post before you start. It'll save you a lot of time and trouble later on.
Upgraded Acer 3680 Celeron CPU to a T5300!
Aspire 5315 CPU Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide

What youíll need :Your new CPU (make sure it's compatible with your system ie; socket, FSB)Latest BIOS from Acer (upgraded to 1.3505 or latest)A good thermal paste (I would recommend Tuniq TX-2 or Arctic Silver 5 as well)Basic tools (screwdrivers, forceps, kitchen paper)Body static discharger (I would definitely recommend this as a precaution)Some alcohol, ear buds, sand paper grid 600,1200 & 2000 (optional for heat sink lapping)Lastly TIME and PATIENCE (youíll be needing these a lot definitely!)When youíre ready, lets get our hands dirty.

How to disassemble your notebook?
I found out a very good video tutorial on how to disassemble my Aspire notebook on YouTube. So please take your time to view it and follow step by step as shown to help you to go through the process.

Lapping your heat sink (optional)
Although itís not necessary, but I would recommend this process as another way to improve heat dissipation on your newly installed CPU. Refer to this page for detailed instructions.

The simple process:Clean your heat sink from old thermal paste residues with alcohol or equivalent of it using ear buds and kitchen papers.Apply a 600-grid sandpaper to smoothen the heat sink surface which comes into contact with your CPU.Repeat the process again with a 1200-gid sand paper until youíre satisfied.Finally, finish up by applying a 2000-grid sand paper to give you an almost mirror-finished surface. Wipe clean any dirt and residues left.....................................

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16dual Core Or The HDX 18quad Core For Video

Mar 2, 2009

I want to upgrade my old laptop to something nice, and am torn between to systems.

An HDX 16 with:

2.40 Ghz dual core duo ( P8600 chip )
6 gigs of ram

OR...

An HXD 18 with
2.0 Ghz QUAD core ( QX9000 chip )
4 gigs of ram

both systems have the same video card ( Nvidia with 512megs of ram ) 500 gig hard drive.

What would be the faster machine for doing video ? and what would be the overall faster machine ?

I realize that not all applications will take advantage of a quad-core chip like the QX900, so this is why I"m asking. if the dual-core P8600 chip @ 2.40 Ghz in the HP HDX 16 with that 6 gigs of ram will actually be faster overall than the quad core would be, and perhaps even be faster at rendering video ?

Acer :: Bluetooth Showing Up As Unkown Device

Sep 8, 2008

I just got a Logitech Bluetooth mouse and for the first time my Bluetooth is apparently messed up.

Previously, I have been using it weekly to sync my phone with Outlook via Bluetooth...so this is a brand new situation.

I have an Acer Ferrari 4006WLMi running Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit.

My Broadcom Bluetooth chip shows up as Unknown Device under Universal Serial Bus controllers. Turning it on and off(using the button on the front of the laptop) got it to show up once properly as a Broadcom chip under Network adapters. However, I can't get it to show up properly again.

I've tried uninstalling it and letting Windows find it again but that doesn't help. I downloaded the latest bluetooth drivers from Acer's site however it won't install w/o a Bluetooth device being installed.

Acer Aspire E5-411 :: No Bluetooth Device Showing After Win 7 Installation?

Nov 9, 2014

I recently brought a Aspire E5-411, in Thailand, with a Linpus Linux OS. I installed my prefered OS Win7 x64. I managed to locate and install the hardware drivers. The strange thing is there is no bluetooth device showing in device manager. Is it because

(a) there is no b/tooth adapter on this model,
(b) the adapter is faulty,
(c) I need to install a driver to activate, or
(d) other?

Acer Aspire 5740g :: DVD Drive Is Not Showing In (computer)

Nov 13, 2014

I have had to have a new hard drive installed as I got a error message saying old drive failing.

I also had a clean install of windows 7 as I was uncertain whether my discs I created would be ok.

I therefore have not got all of the freebies that were installed on the laptop as new. I now find that the dvd drive is not showing in my computer and nothing happens when I insert disc.

I have just upgraded from Windows 7 RTC Ultimate to Windows 7 RTM pro.

The weird things is, that there are two hidden partitions:

There are two hidden partitions and they have both 100% free disc space. I know one of them is the recovery from Acer, but it says nothing of the disc space is used !

Luckily, I have a recovery CD.

Another weird thing is in Auslogic Disc Defrag:

There are a removal drive and it's leading to the Windows folder on the C: drive O_O?

Acer Aspire V7 :: Battery Indicator Seems To Be Showing Incorrect Readings

Feb 27, 2015

My battery indicator seems to be showing incorrect readings. When I get to about 16% battery, it will drop to 5%. It will not even show the battery critical warning, it just goes to 5%.
 
I already tried reinstalling windows to factory, same issue. Also installed Linux to see if it was a specific problem with Windows, same issue.
 
I ran powercfg to see what was going on and see this for my battery;
Battery ID17266SANYOAP13B3KManufacturerSANYOSerial Number17266ChemistryLIONLong Term1Sealed0Design Capacity53400Last Full Charge55455 

For some reason, it is showing a full charge of more than design capacity. Could this be why it incorrectly thinks it has more battery, and then quickly readjusts to 5%?  I tried recalibrating (three times) the battery by completely draining and then completely charging and have the same problem
 
Also, I found that if I overcharge (leave it plugged in after fully-charged light comes on) then this problem disappears for that discharge cycle, but will return if I don't overcharge it for the next cycle. It seems to think it's fully charged too early when it's actually not!
 
Honestly, I'm hoping there is a way to fix this without having to replace the battery, since it's not removeable for this model so I would have to send it in for warranty replacement. This laptop is only about 6 months old.

Acer Aspire E5-571 :: Bluetooth Device Showing As Paired On Laptop But Not On LD Speakers

Feb 17, 2015

I just bought a new Acer E5 571 with Windows 8.1 The laptop paired to my bluetooth speaker quickly and with no problem.
 
However the next time I turned on my laptop it showed as bluetooth device paired when it wasn't. iTunes only played through the laptop speaker and I have to disconnect and re-pair the bluetooth and deactivate the laptop speaker to get iTunes to play through bluetooth every time.
 
Is this a recognised fault or some incompatibility between my laptop and LG bluetooth soundbar?

Acer Aspire 5810TZ :: Flashing BIOS - Boot It Up And It Just Showing Logo

Mar 13, 2013

Flashing the bios. I have a Aspire 5810TZ. I boot it up and it just says 'acer' and won't go any further. I went to the download page for BIOS on us.acer.com and it has a zip file with 5 files:

JM4151135.exe FLA... GPC_V135.bin readme.txt FLASH.BAT

What do I do? I have tried copying the files to a USB and powering on with Fn-Esc held down. After letting go of the power button and holding Fn-Esc a different screen appears after 30 seconds. I let go and have given it 30 minutes but it is not doing anything. I have read online from other people the power button should be blinking. Do I need to rename one of the files.
