Acer :: How Can I Save EAudio Management Settings

Apr 21, 2010

I have an Aspire 5720. The default mode for the eAuido Management is Movie (which means surround on). When I turn the computer on, I change that value to Music (surround off). However, there is no way to save my preferred mode (Music), and everytime, I have to bother with changing it from Movie to Music.

Is there a way to make "Music" the default mode of the eAudio Management?

Acer :: EAudio Management

Aug 21, 2009

I have a stereo system hooked up to my computer through component style cables (Red/White) that connect through the headphone jack. If I switch eAudio Management to S/PDIF Digital Output, the sound works much better. But if I try and do something else, like switch to youtube, the audio wont play at all. If I go back to iTunes again, it also wont play. I have to close iTunes, switch eAudio to "Built-In Speakers", re-open iTunes, then switch back to S/PDIF. Its a pain to have to open and close iTunes all the time. The audio quality is much better with S/PDIF and dont want to have to sacrifice by leaving it on Built-In Speakers. My actual stereo plays when Built-In Speakers is selected (not the laptop speakers), the quality is just inferior. Are there any reasons for this? Is there any solution to fixing it so that the S/PDIF is always working?

Acer Gateway NE71B :: Cannot Update BIOS - Some Settings Don't Save After Changed

Dec 25, 2014

I have a Gateway NE71B a friend gave me and it has Windows 8 installed. I had to do some repair to it after a drink was spilled into it but I cleaned it out and its been fine, sorta...
 
Resuming from sleep doesn't work. It is just black. I have to shutit down and that works fine. It appears that a BIOS upgrade is needed and I downloaded the latest BIOS and tried to update it. It uses some 'InsideH2O' update app. Well it goes to reboot and when it tries to apply the BIOS, it keeps saying that it is an invalid firmware image. I've verifiedd that this is the correct BIOS file. I tried other BIOS versions and none will apply, always getting the error. I've researched the utility, extracted the config and BIOS. I'm tempted to tell it to write without verify (its that fustrating).
 
One option, that seems to saved most people is to disable Secure Boot. No matter what, I cannot do this. It never saves. I followed the official steps of powering off, then power on, set the admin password, disable Secure Boot, save and exit. Secure Boot always stays enabled. I've tried probably 30 times, 10 different ways and it just won't stick. I also noticed that I cannot change other settings in the BIOS. I can set some to a different value but they always revert back. I cannot get the function keys setting to stay on Function Keys. It always defaults back to Special Keys after reboot. Same thing goes with enabling F12 for boot menu. 
 
I've tried removing the coin battery, which has a charge, shorting out the contacts holding it for about a minute, removed power battery and power cable, letting it sit but still no good. I've also tried removing the hard drive. Where is the BIOS data being stored and can it be wiped?
 
I've been considering getting an Acer laptop but this is starting to steer me away. Definately not getting a Gateway.

HP Zbook 17 Display :: Nvidia Control Panel Does Not Save Settings

Jul 13, 2014

I have  a zbook with a nvidia quadro 610m graphics. I cannot get the gpu to save settings or engage when playing games. It was working until I tried to give windows 8 a try.I did a fresh install of windows 8. Then I installed the hp drivers cd that came with workstation. Everything says it completed successfully and I've rebooted multiple times.
 
When I open the nvidia control panel, none of the settings I change stick. E.g. tell every program to use the 610m. I click apply it looks like it was successful. However, if I open the nvidia control panel again, all changes are reverted. I restarted after hitting apply too. It doesnt matter what the changes are, they all revert.
 
I'm guessing I screwed up with the driver install or something but IDK.The device manager says that the 610m is working properly and the driver is up do date.

Acer :: Save My Aspire 5920

Oct 2, 2008

I recently had a small flood in my basement. While my laptop didnt get wet the power adapter did. It stopped working as there was water dripping out of the adapter. I purchased a IGO adapter from Radio Shack. I tried it in the store on my laptop and it worked fine. I got it home and it was a different story. The unit kept turning itself on and off and i kept having to jiggle it to work. Finally I decided to return the adapter and buy another one. I purchased a 90 watt adapter from Best Buy. Now the machine doesnt do anything. Nothing happens, no blue light or anything.

Acer :: 6935a-when The Battery Is Used (power Save Scheme Is On)

Sep 8, 2009

I have Acer 6935 (P8400, GF9600 512 DDR3, 4 GB RAM DDR3) and use Vista 64 bit.
Today I have noticed a strange behavior of my laptop when the battery is used (power save scheme is on).

On the beginning, the battery is fully charged. I start listening music or watching a movie, it does not matter. It takes about 1 hour, for example.

The battery is about 50-60% full (1h 30 min left) and suddenly the laptop goes to standby. When I turn it on, turns out that only 9% of the battery left. The wireless and the Bluetooth are off. I use Vista 64 bit.

The laptop is only 6 months and the battery has not been hard used.

Acer :: EData Security Management

Mar 7, 2009

I tried to create a document on the MS Word 2007 that came with my Acer TravelMate 5720 - XP, Office 2007. The completed docu was saved to My Documents. When I went to My Documents to open the file, the icon contained a red bar, was labeled as encrypted, and would not open. I tried saving another - same result. The Notepad documents I save are fine but the Excel files are encrypted too. When I try to open the encrypted Word.docx file, an Acer window pops up titled Acer eData Security Management and says "System setup must be completed before you can use Acer eData Security Management. Please click "Next" to start the setup." Apparently I have turned on the Acer eData Security Management system somehow. I am not interested in using the Acer eData Security Management. It would be easy to remove the program but then it would not be available should I ever decide differently. Any ideas any one would care to offer about how I may have accomplished turning on the Acer eData Security Management system, and most importantly, how do I turn it back off,

Is there any reasons for using ePower management?

I have Vista 64bit installed on Acer6935G and I do not use the software, but maybe I am missing something without it.

I found a few posts about the same, but is not clearly stated that the software is really important.

Acer :: 4810TZ: Power Management

Jul 5, 2009

When I unplug my laptop from the AC adapter, Acer's ePower system automatically dims the LCD brightness to a setting that is 2 levels above the lowest (and 7 below the highest). However, when resuming the laptop from standby, I noticed that the setting is increased to 4 levels above the lowest (and 5 below the highest). I'm kind of a stickler for these sorts of things and would prefer for Windows not to change the LCD brightness if the ePower manager is supposed to be handling it. Is anyone else noticing this, and if so, have you corrected it somehow?

FYI, I should mention that I recently downloaded an updated version of Acer's ePower management system from Acer's support website - this updated version corrected an error that was occurring where my optical drive wouldn't "wake up" after ePower management shut it down, so I would prefer not to downgrade.

I'm frankly a little confused about where exactly all the Acer-specific power options are located. What is the difference between ePower and PowerSmart? Or are they the same thing? I could go on, but I think I've raised enough questions.

Acer :: USELESS EPower Management Software

Sep 22, 2009

I see in the 1410/1810 thread people uninstall this and it seems to help battery life. I want to see proof. Show tests, videos, photos, whatever proof you have that this software that Acer engineers designed is useless. I had an EEE before and it shipped with Asus's own power management software and I never had a problem with it working together with whatever Linux or Windows OS I used. So, lets see what proof you have that shows the epower management software is useless.

Acer :: Aspire Timeline And Optical Drive Power Management

Has anyone noticed that Optical Drive Power Management occassionally stop working, i.e., pressing the eject button on your laptop, Windows does not detect your optical drive? Does anyone know how to get Windows to detect the drive, short of restarting?

(my OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64. I am using Optical Drive Power Management for Windows Vista Home Premium 64 - I just installed the program in compatibility mode. Before anyone suggests this is the cause of the problem, I was experiencing this same problem in Vista Home Premium 64 and was hopeful that Windows 7 would fix it...)

Acer :: Aspir 5942g Power Management And Backup Manager

May 5, 2010

I have this acer with these two problems.

Firstly the power management button does not seem to work.

I have of course launch manager and power management programs installed.

When i press the button, it does light up green, but i have no indication on the screen like i have when i activate wlan or bluetooth.

When the drivers of the powersmart manager are uninstalled the button does not light up green when i press it, so it partially works.

Also, nothing changes in my power settings nor the screen brightens down, no sign that it works.

Actions i took so far:
I uninstalled and installed both programs, and i run them as admin.

I installed first the launch manager and then the power management.

Nothing changed.

I go to c: program files:acer:acer powersmart manager and try to open the right exe file which i think is ePowerMsg but then i get an error message saying that the element ePowerMsg stopped working.

The window is this:
Is this the right exe?
I tried with ac only, ac and battery, battery only, same results.

Acer :: ERecovery Management Failed To Produce System Discs

Aug 29, 2009

I got for my son an Acer Aspire 4520 as a cost effective notebook for an extended study trip and I was pretty much impressed with my first encounter with Acer. It was also my first encounter with Vista HP and I do like it.

The package didn't include any system discs and I understand you create them with Acer's eRecovery Management. I started with creating the factory default discs which required two DVDs. I also chose the option of verifying the data on the burnt DVD. The first DVD got burnt and verified fine but the second DVD failed to verify. This outcome was repeated twice. Acer's tech support was responsive and ordered me a set of discs at no charge, however this incidence casts a shadow on the quality of Acer's packaged support software.

I noticed another glitch: the backup wizards prompts you to insert a disc for burning and when you do that Window's auto play menu comes up and expects you to pick an application to deal with the empty disc. I simply ignored it and the disc got burnt anyway, but this shouldn't happen.

I wonder if and how other Acer owners were able to burn their system discs using this particular Acer SW.

Acer :: Aspire M1640, ERecovering Management Fails To Respond

I have tried creating a recovery disk using the Acer Empowering Technology but every time i click on the create factory default disc button, the Acer eRecovering Management freezes and i get an error message saying : Acer Empowering Technology Framework launcher has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows is collecting more information about the problem.

Another thing, i know how to unhide the 'PQSERVICE' partition, but i'm wondering if it's possible to create these discs directly from the partition without the need for the faulty 'eRecovery Management'. If yes, how?
