I've recently purchased the Aspire 5739G off Newegg and would like to install XP on the machine. Fortunately, there are official XP drivers for this model on the Acer support website. I've downgraded before and know the procedure of slipstreaming the SATA drivers. Which drivers do I slipstream for this model? I noticed on the drivers page there is a SATA AHCI Driver. Is this the driver to slipstream?
I recently bought the laptop in my sig. I could have paid an extra £100 for a Blu-Ray drive and 500GB HDD, but I chose not to. I don't necessarily regret this, but I'll probably want to upgrade to a Blu-Ray drive at some point.
Does anyone know what Blu-Ray drive comes with this laptop? Or if any other Blu-Ray drives work? I'm not interested in recording, just standard playback.
just bought a computer: Acer Aspire 5739G wireless card: intel wifi link 5100 -all drivers up to date
when i started to connect my wireless network 9 feet away(it has full connection) it said could't connect to network. Then i desided to try right beside the router and it worked. then when i walked from the router(5 feet) the connection sais limited connection. 8 feet no connection the same happened when i tryed to do it at my friend.
I updated it to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using the disk Acer sent me about a month ago, but never checked to see if any games work until today. Stupid, I know. I put in the CD, the game starts to load up and then it goes to a black screen. It always did this when I had Vista too, but it usually came back on and the game was loaded up. Its stuck there then and I'm forced to hold down the power button and restart the computer.
I updated the driver for the Nvidia GeForce GT 130M to its latest (mainly because I have no clue what to do and thought to myself "yeah, that sounds like something that might be wrong with it"), but no change.
I just recently bought a Acer Aspire 5739G and installed Windows 7 64 bit. All the bells and whistles are working except the fingerprint reader and the bluetooth.
I've tried a multitude of drivers from the manufacturers website and the acer driver website but to no avail.
Any attempt to install the bluetooth drivers asks for the device to be plugged in or turned on and pressing the BT button only displays the "bluetooth disabled" image on the screen. I can't see any bluetooth device installed in the device manager but there are a bunch of HID-compliant devices under the Human Interface Devices tab.
Installed the Windows 7 x64 Acer Bio Protection all goes fine until the System Wizard where it tells me that it can't detect the fingerprint scanner even tho I can see it installed in the device manager. It's installed as "TouchStrip Fingerprint Sensor" under Biometrics.
is there any way to control the fan speed of this lap top?
I have tried speedfan, rivatuner, even tried the undervolting option with RMClock (no success - the CPU was running at the lowest voltage already).
One option did present some signs of activity - Acer Asprie One (!) Fan Control utility. However, it only switched off the fan completely. Besides that, it was quite unstable and sometimes forgot to turn the fan back on after the threshold of temperature was crossed again.
By the way: computer doesn't get hot at all. The feel is quite cool, as Speedfan utility indicates these temperatures:
The Aspire 5739G I purchased from Newegg in July has been randomly crashing on me.
Windows completely freezes without BSOD, I can't move my mouse, the sound skips repeatedly, and the keyboard is unresponsive (num lock won't turn on) which forces me to manually shut down with the power button. The screen flashes a bit before the crash happens.
I first experienced these problems after I installed Windows 7, but I reset to factory defaults w/Vista and the problem still remains. After two fresh installs of Win7 and one of Vista I am stumped. I also ran the Western Digital HDD, memory diagnostic tool, and mem86 and they all didn't find any problems with my hardware.
The crashes have occurred in Excel, playing flash movies, games, but mostly in playing videos. However the crash is completely random. I have tried both media player classic and VLC with different movies and windows has crashed with both. Not to mention that the same video that crashed my computer, I can play again with no problems or it will crash again at a different spot so it's not a corrupt file. Also I've tried both official and unofficial video card drivers and that didn't work. Event Viewer also doesn't tell me crap.
My laptop is still under warranty but I'm afraid Acer won't take it back or do anything if the problem isn't obvious. I once sent this laptop in for a noisy fan (loud buzzing noises) but they sent it back without repair since they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Even though the fan is noisy, speedfan says that temperature is kept cool and I'm also using a laptop cooler.
When I'm listening to music, my speakers tend to crackle every once in a while. Even with headphones, I get the same problem if not worse. I've searched around and it seems to be a driver issue but I've updated to the the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers and it still crackles. I'm just wondering if people with the same laptop have similar issues while listening to music or my laptop is faulty.
My Asprie 5739 appears to have gone into sleep mode. ¬†When I push the power button the power charge LED below the touch pad blinks, but it does not boot, even when I hold it for a long period of time. ¬† ¬† I removed the battery and power, then plugged it back in, tried holding down the power button with the same result. ¬† Left it unplugged for a day, same result. ¬† Have tried to hold the power button + FN F4, still not response.
I have a big issue with my Acer Aspire 5739G laptop that I recently purchased through Ebay. Actually, I bought it from Newegg dba Fred's Fresh Deals. (Newegg sells their returned items and cosmetically damaged goods under this name on Ebay). The laptop was advertised as a possible hard drive issue (it couldn't load windows and the error code looked like a boot sector virus, so I purchased it thinking a simple reformat will fix it).
CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2G Screen 15.6" Memory Size 4GB DDR3 7200RPM Hard Disk 320GB Optical Drive DVD Super Multi Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M Video Memory 1GB Communication Modem, Gigabit LAN and WLAN CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo CPU Speed T6600(2.20GHz) CPU FSB 800MHz CPU L2 Cache 2MB Chipset Chipset Intel PM45 Display Screen Size 15.6" Wide Screen Support Yes Resolution 1366 x 768 LCD Features LED backlight & Acer CineCrystal Technology Operating Systems Operating System Windows 7
After I did a fresh reformat of the hard drive and a fresh install of Windows 7, the laptop freezes/locks up after 10-30mins on the desktop. I cannot move the mouse or anything, so I have to do a hard reboot. I don't understand how it is happening.
I updated the mobo's Phoenix driver to the latest one, and tried older VGA Nvidia drivers because I thought it might be a video card driver issue; It is still locking up. I went as far as to purchase a brand new laptop hard drive and the problem still arises. There is no BSOD. As noted earlier, the computer just simply freezes. I cleared CMOS....240M GT VGA is running factory settings....I tried leaving only 1 ram stick in the laptop. I never ran through a problem like this before.
I ran it on Safe Mode and the computer seems to be working fine as long as I do simple tasks or remain idle. I did the SFC /SCANNOW in safe mode and it locks up. I attached my event view file to this email. (I tried to install RivaTuner to underclock factory settings, but the program could not load).
I just received my new Acer Aspire 5739g and I want to get the lastest nvidia drivers but nvidia says that i can't that acer wants me to do if from there site and they aren't up to date. I can't even do it manually by downloading the updated driver from nvidia. I downloaded the newer driver and the only thing it let me update from my download was the audio driver. my geforce driver is still the same one 179.52. How do i get it up to 186.xx. i'm lost. also can i get rid of this "mywinlocker" what is that.
I just bought a new Aspire 6930G, which obviously comes preinstalled with Vista. I want to install XP on it and I need the drivers. Does anyone have a list of all the drivers that I need in order to complete this installation?
I've bought an Acer Aspire 5738ZG notebook not so long ago, it came with Windows Vista OS. I'm using it with that OS since 2 weeks now, but i decided to change to OS to Windows XP, cuz I like that more.
My problem is that after I boot the install CD of XP, the process crashed after some time, at this point. It gives me a blue screen, and asks me to restart the notebook. I really want to use XP,
I bought the Acer Aspire¬†e5-571-55TL, which has no optical drive. It just has a plastic blank in it. I want to install an SSD in the optical drive, through the use of a hard drive caddy. I can't find any information on compatible products, or where to find the proper part.¬† ¬† Would either of these work?¬† ¬† This one says it's for the¬†Acer Aspire E5-572G E1-572 Series:¬†
i've recently bought an acer aspire 5739G and i've noticed that the notebook also boots up when i press the arcade deluxe key. After the boot screen with the acer logo i just get a blinking cursor in the top left corner of the screen.
I even tried booting like this with an audio CD or DVD inside, thinking it's some sort of multimedia mode, but with no luck.
Every time I put the bootable disk in to install windows xp it will get to the point of saying starting windows then I get the blue screen of death. How can I install windows xp? Right now it has vista home basic
A coworker lost her HD, a new one was added and she bought XP Pro now when I try to install it, when it gets to Setup is starting Windows it stops and stays there for ever. I have left it like that for two days and get nowhere.
I have aspire 6920 and I love the features this computer has but I am not very happy with vista. Can I install xp pro? I know that deleting the pq service partition is not wise but I would rather have xp pro. How do I delete pq service? Also, is this action reversible? If I can install xp can I ever go back to the manufacturer OS? I have created the restore cd's but will they work without the pq service partition.
Did a restore with factory restore disks it doesn't install broadcom BCM94312mcg wireless drivers. when i try to install I get "windows found drivers but encountered an error code 10 have tried everything I know
have bought a new Acer Aspire V5 573G without a system software. Now I want to install Windows 7 home premium 64bit on it but it doesn't work. First of all: Is it generally possible to do this? I tried to install it in the recovery mode but there was an error (something with the GPT Partition) so I switched the Mode to UEFI. I have read in other message boards that I have to switch to UEFI csm (compatibility support mode) but I can't find it.
Hey guys I have a Acer Aspire 5590. I installed empowering technology, then I installed enet, eperformance, and esettings for it, I tried installing epower management but it says I need net frame 1.1 but yet I installed 2.0 then 3.5 yesterday.. and it still doesn't work. I formatted the laptop yesterday, but when it was not formatted it had all the acer programs on it, such as the one where it controls the battery performance, so I could change the screen brightness, how fast the laptop goes and what the settings are when it's running on battery. What is that program called, could somebody send me a link so that I have all the acer programs that come with acer laptops? I have Windows XP
i have a new laptop i brought about 2 months ago called "Acer Aspire 7530". It has 4 gig ram, and a 2.1 GHz processor.
I want to install Vista 64 bit on it, as the original comes with a 32 bit version which I do not want.
Anyways, when i boot from my vista CD it goes into the installation menu. But after i choose the language, it says "No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contain the correct drivers, and then click ok"
I got all my laptop drivers and put them onto a USB stick and tried that, but it did not work.
