The follow is the Registry Entry for Acer Aspire Timeline.
I already modified this key to point to Windows Media Player.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"Label"="Windows Media Player"
"Description"=""Windows Media Player"
"Show OSD Only for Legacy"="0"
If you want it to point to other programs, simply
1. copy and paste onto notepad
2. Change "wmplayer.exe" to something else the reason I don't use the full path is because wmplayer is in C:Windows and the shortcut can automatically find anything in C:Windows.
3. If the program is in Program Files you have to use the full path eg."C:Program FilesXXXXXX.exe"
4. Change the Label and description (although it doesn't work as in display the word Windows Media Player when you click it)
5. Save as backup.reg
6. Double Click then Confirm and you are done.
7.There are other keys however I don't recommend modifying them as they are pretty useful like battery saver mode and Wireless Shortcut.
8.To Locate other shortcut keys find the executable path and trace it to the specific keys.
9.LManager (LaunchManager) always hold the key data.
i have encountered a problem with my shortcut funtion like fn+f3 and fn+f8 etc...they are not working and not responding and i have installed windows a day back.i cannot increase or decrease my volume and brightness with these keys.i am using windows 7 64bit.laptop -hp 15-g009ax.
I'm recording voice overs and singing with it and it's specifically meant to be thin and light for travel - with a good enough screen resolution to edit with the machine while I'm on the go. I'd prefer a Windows XP unit (I'm trying to use Cubase LE and I'm not certain it'll work on Windows 7 Pro) but I can get an IT friend of mine to install XP on it if I need to.
My biggest concern with it - is noise. Is the fan really noisy? I know that I can regulate the fan speed etc. with the little apps that have been created for the unit here on this very board, but how long can one leave off the fan without the unit getting incredibly hot? I'm recording with this unit fairly close to a large diaphragm condenser mic, so really - it needs to be as quiet as possible.
I own an Acer Aspire Timeline 3810tz. My laptop did not come with an optical drive and now I'm wondering how I might go about downgrading it from Vista to Windows XP? I have already purchased a USB Cd-Rom drive and skimmed through some nLite articles, but I'm still getting the blue screen 0x0000007B error. I'm guessing it has to do something with the SATA/AHCI driver but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
*During my XP install I changed the SATA Mode from AHCI to IDE
*I think I might be using the wrong driver, but I'm not entirely sure.
I recently wiped out my Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit partition and installed Windows 7 Professional RTM 64-bit on it. I see the performance of booting up increased (using a SSD), programs opened faster (SSD), and shut down is a bit more faster also. The thing I'm concern about is the battery life. It seems to get shorter battery life.. the meter says 5 hours 31 minute on a 98% battery when windows vista says around 8 hours on that percentage. Both were idling. Is that normal that Windows 7 uses more battery or what?
First of all I will admit that I have never used an Acer before (I am a Lenovo/IBM person) and I don't get how this whole brand works. I hope you will be able to help me out. So my notebook is Lenovo 410s and i am very happy with it; now I am helping to buy a notebook for my friend who has similar needs as I and I would recommend her Lenovo again, but hey I just stumbled across Acer and found it interesting. So I'd like to ask a few questions in the hope you will help:
1. Who are the best sellers in the US of Acer computers? It seems to me that Acer, unlike Lenovo, is being sold everywhere and I can't make sense of this mess - i.e. who to buy from.
2. Would be e.g. an Acer 4810 Timeline (or suggest any other type) be able to meet the following: a) need a quite computer (noise of any kind is especially annoying) b) need a light computer (carry it everyday ..anything around 4lb should do) c) need more of a business model: don't do any gaming, only office, web surfing and an occasional video watching d) need a solid and sturdy build e) need an integrated webcamp, SD card reader
Now I have to say that Lenovo 410s meets basically all the wishes I've had for a laptop: it's very light (3.8lbs), very fast, fantastic build. The only two issues that I don't like about it: the quality of the screen is subpar and it does get noisy - by that I mean fan activity. But overall i have not seen a more impressive computer than this. Thus would Acer be able to beat this? What about screen quality? Heat issues? How bad are the speakers? etc. Btw. does Acer offer Solid State Drives with their units?
In sum, can anybody suggest a model that would equal the performance and specifications of Lenovo 410s and make a persuasive argument why to go with Acer and where to possibly buy it? (of course Acer being cheaper is one such argument).
I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.
The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?
Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:
Aspire A5538-1096 [url]
Aspire Timeline 5810-4784 [url]
My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?
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...)
I just got an acer aspire timeline 5810tz, which came with vista, so i was in the process of reformatting it to have XP, which i've done several times on my previous laptops. When i changed the bios to IDE, which is what i read was the correct setting (perhaps this is where my problem is?), i found that i could no longer boot the computer or access setup, bios or the boot menu. When i attempt to do any of these things, the computer just sits on the logo screen.
i'm getting fairly desperate at this point, having tried a large variety of solutions, key combos, removing the battery, etc.
My girlfriend gave me a brandnew Aspire Timeline 1810TZ with build in G3 (UMTS) for Christmas. When i played around with the preinstalled system (Windows 7 Home Premium x64), I could use the hardware switch in the front of the chassis to enable/ disable the build-in G3-Module.
But as you know, the preinstalled OS are normally very slow, so i formatted the System and installed Windows 7 Professional x64. After installation of all drivers from the Acer website, the switch for enabling the G3 didn't worked anymore! I reformated again with Windows 7 Home Premium x64, but there was the same Picture: No, response from the G3-Switch.
The funny thing is: G3 and WLAN share the same physical hardware switch (you have to flip it to the left to enable/disable G3, and to enable/ disable WLAN you have to flip it to the right).
Flipping the switch to the right activated WLAN without any problem!
I have no idea how to fix this (tried every driver i could find).

I have Acer Aspire TimelineX 5820T / 5820TG, in my laptop FN Keys are not workinkg like (Â FN, Enter (Tn) , F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F12, Left and right Bright, up and down volume) ....
I have had this laptop for only a year and the other day when plugging in my power while the laptop was on, left keys on the keyboard stopped working. A friend suggested I take the battery out for a bit and then plug it in without the battery. So I did and the keyboard worked for a couple of days like that. Then one day it stopped working again.
To be exact these are the keys that are not working: Esc, F1, F2, F3, ~, 1, 2, 3, Tab, Q, W, E, Caps Lock, A, S, D, Shift, Z, X, C, Ctrl, Fn, windows, Alt
I have an acer aspire 1355lc the keyboard does not register any keys when typed and if I connect an external keyboard to the unit weird thing happen. Uppercase becomes lower case the numeric pad does not work and the function keys do not perform the correct function.
I have an Aspire 5733Z laptop. Â I just recently lost the capability to adjust the volume using the keyboard shortcut of Fn key with up or down arrow keys. Â I have uninstalled and installed the Realtek HD driver.
