Acer :: Overclocking GeForce 9500M GS On Aspire 7720G

Jan 18, 2010

Over-clocking with RivaTuner. Right now I'm at 500Mhz for core, 1Ghz for shader and 425MHz for RAM.

On idle graphics card is at about 63C and processor at 33C with fan off.

To put some load on system, I used Intel BurnIn standard test and two instances of 64bit version of fluidsGL.exe from nVidia's Cuda SDK (acording to GPU-Z, the load on graphics card is about 93%). Mandelbrot.exe does put some more load on graphics card, but it closes as soon s application looses focus, so it isn't as convenient.

When I run tests, temperatures are around 85C for graphics card and 65C for processor.

I wanted to ask you how much should I overclock the graphics card and what are safe temperatures? I plan to use this laptop for few more years, so I do not wan to cook my graphics card.

Acer :: Installed Vista Ultimate On Aspire 7720G With GeForce 9300 But No Graphics

Jul 16, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 7720G which has a Nvidia GeForce 9300M G 256MB graphics card.

Other specs - Core 2 Duo T5750 (2.0 Ghz), 3Gb Ram 667MHz

I've installed a clean version of Vista Ultimate but it doesn't recognise that there's a graphics card present. I've tried to instal the drivers from the Nvidia website but it aborts because it can't find the hardware.

I've also tried installing Vista SP1 but still no avail.

Acer :: 9500M GS Aspire 8920/6920 Games Minimizing On Start

Nov 11, 2008

I have a curious issue that has begun to pop up, I believe after I installed a few drivers from laptopvideo2go. Long story short I tried to reset back to the old Acer drivers and I spent a few hours trying to get my video to turn back on.

But here's the actual problem - some games will randomly minimize on startup and then not allow me to switch to them.

I first noticed this with Frets on Fire, where I would boot it up, it would look like it would work and then stay minimized for a while. Click on it in the taskbar and it would either pretend to go to the game or just sit there, moving my mouse to the top left corner. Alt-Tab, similar, sometimes works sometimes doesn't. If I do Switch To in task manager, it works a bit more often but sometimes takes a few times.

I've now noticed this with COD4, Fallout 3, and Trackmania Nations. Fallout 3 causes the game to crash. I've tried stopping as many open programs/processes as possible and it sometimes fixes it, sometimes doesn't.

If it isn't clear, I have an Acer Aspire 8920G with a 9500M GS. I'm currently using the relatively stock 7.15.1(1.7561) drivers.

Acer :: Aspire 7720g Network

Oct 23, 2008

I have recently bought the Acer Aspire 7720g laptop and kinda like the spec. Though I have had 2 major annoying issues with it. The first is that it would never boot at first attempt after an overnight shutdown. This was resolved by installing BIOS version 1.43 after finding a solution on this forum.

The second is one that I can not for the life of me find the reason. The network connections of the laptop will stop working after a few minutes and requires several restarts to make stable. This only seems to happen to the wireless connection. It does not drop signal it just seems to disable.

Yet I have unticked the 'allow Windows to turn of the wireless device to save power' thing. Updated all drivers and BIOS to the most current found version. Also when the wireless network 'turns off' I can not get into network and sharing centre or use the 'Connect To' option, they just both hang.

Even turning the wireless off and back on with the laptop switch makes no difference.

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 7720G Memory Cover

Sep 20, 2008

I wanted to open my box to check the ease (or not) of a memory upgrade but had a helluva sweaty time trying to get the compartment cover off.

After undoing the 4 screws and getting it open a bit, it still seemed VERY firmly held in the vicinity of the fan vent area.

The plastic cover is pretty thin and I was terrified of breaking it, so tried a little prying, a bit of heaving, some levering, tugging, jabbing, swearing, praying etc. I even had the computer overturned and was looking for a way through the keyboard where I was convinced that a bolt must be holding the memory cover down.

Anyway it DID finally come loose but it was a bit scary, so I've made a couple of scans and added some notes on the lugs which were holding it in place in the hope that it might prove useful to others in the same predicament.

One scan is of the actual lid and the other is of what's inside, in case you get to feel like pushing a screwdriver in there - (don't).

Acer :: ( Aspire 7720G ) 2 X Hard Drive

May 4, 2009

In the specs listed on the website, and on the sticker on the laptop itself:

320 GB Dual HDD
(160 GBx2)

I am going insane, on the device manager it says I have two HDs, but I think one of them has been partitioned, the one with the windows data on (C drive) the HDs in my computer are displayed as this:

I've been told of a program call 'Raid' or something, but I'm really not sure what it actually does.

I just want to know if the two smaller HDs are partitioned and if possible, how to join them up again,

Acer :: ASPIRE 7720G Audio And Clock

Feb 18, 2009

my Acer's been having trouble playing audio and keeping time. The clock problem's simple: ever since I got it it's lost time at a variable rate, averaging at probably around a minute every hour. Nothing I've done has managed to fix this, except in the short-term by updating it to Internet time.

More complicated have been the audio issues. These vary in severity and come and go to an extent, and I have had some success fixing them. Basically, since I got the computer, audio's been at least slightly choppy while playing videos over a period of time. Generally just playing audio files themselves work fine (unless something resource heavy going on in the background), and bizarrely playing videos through my browser (say on YouTube) has always been perfect, regardless of site, length or quality of video. But when it comes to playing anything from the hard drive regardless of whether it's WMP or VLC and regardless of bit rate, sooner or later the audio screws up. This can be either to the extent that it'll glitch every couple of seconds, that I'll lose sync with the video slightly, or loss of sound entirely. In fact, the first time I downloaded a video podcast on iTunes I was left wondering why the opening scene was so eerily silent for so long!

Now initially I was able to fix this by updating the BIOS to v1.45 and after that pretty much everything was good. It would still glitch occasionally on HD movies, and certainly still didn't like too much going on in the background, but generally nothing I couldn't handle. At least until now, when all the same problems have come back to haunt me worse than ever. I tried going on to v1.43, but no dice. And now I'm back on v1.45 in the vain hope that re-installing it might make some difference. But alas. I've looked at performance in task manager and it's ticking along at about 16% CPU usage, so nothing untoward there either. It seems like a BIOS problem because updating the BIOS fixed it, but now it's screwing up again under that same BIOS and with nothing untoward going on in the background or hitting the CPU too hard I'm totally stumped.

Basically, is there anything else I might try software wise, or is it time to give Acer a call while I'm still in warranty?

Acer :: Aspire 7720G WLan And Booting After Sleep

Oct 21, 2008

I bought an ACER Aspire 7720G Intel Core 2 Duo with Vista SP1 3 weeks ago and have now some problems with my WLan and with booting after sleep. WLan only works when I restart the computer after swiching on the WLan connection either by pressing the WLan button or by activating the connection in "networks and sharing center" (at least it works then, but it's annoying to restart the computer all the time). Since I use WLan at home I get a message while booting the system (Broadcom UNDI PXE.... Client... MAC ADDR:... GUID... DHCP ...not found..blabla). I use a Lan connection at work and here I have no problems yet. My second problem is that my computer really stays asleep after I woke it up from sleep or just if I would not use it some minutes. It does not show any system related information anymore and I can only restart it again. I have looked up my BIOS and it is Version 1.44 (read the thread about the BIOS problems),

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Celeron 430 Overclocking

Sep 28, 2008

overclocking the Intel Celeron 440 Processor on the Acer Aspire 3680. Here is a screenshot:

As you can see, I overclocked my friend's Acer Aspire 3680. The Celeron M 440 went from 1.86ghz to an amazing 2.35, for an increase of 490mhz! Now, this is definitely not going to be the most safe overclock, and it will consume a lot more power and heat up much quicker, but it is just to show how much you can overclock the Acer 3680.

Here is how I did it:

1. Download CPUCool. (Costs $18 to save your stuff, otherwise it won't for the shareware version)

CPUFSB did not work for me but it may work for you. It is free. Try it

2. Install CPU Cool and say yes to a desktop shortcut and running under windows start up. Now, restart your computer as it tells you too.

3. Go to Functions, change CPU FSB, and then select I don't know. A PLL drop down menu should show up.

4. Make sure it is ICS on the left. Then, go down and choose 954310 all the way at the bottom. Click fine tuning, click ok, and then it should show your frequency. If it doesn't show 1866, and a number less, then download Rightmark CPU Clock Utility and select throttling under profiles and set it to 100%. Unforunately you can't change the voltages.

5. Click fine tuning in CPU Cool, now it should show 1866mhz. Just add 60, 10, or .10 or so mhz by click + 60, +10, or just +. I recommend 2000mhz for the best balance of speed, power, and longevity.

6. Check both boxes as the right under Tray Frequency 1. Click set frequency, ok, and then minimize to tray. Do not close, because your clocks will be reset!....

Acer :: Overclocking Or Underclocking Aspire One Netbook

Apr 11, 2009

Overclock or Underclock
-Download SetFSB
-Choose SLG8SP513v pll
-Click get FSB
-To underclock, select 100mhz (1.2ghz)
-To overclock, select 166mhz (2.0ghz)

Note: This only works if you have SLG8SP513v pll clock generator. If you have ICS9LPRS365. According to the acer aspire one service manual, these 2 clock generators are used. Acer might have also added some pll clock generator to the list, so it might not work for newer acer aspire one.

Undervolt Intel Atom processor
-Download CrystalCPUID
-Lock multiplier by either disabiling speedstep or enable speedstep to restricted the processor to 6x multipler (1.6ghz).
-Lower or increase the processor voltage

Overclock Intel GMA 950 graphic card
-download gmabooster

I have tried Google and downloaded numerous drivers but i cant seem to find one that will work, they all either wont install because they don't recognize the hardware, or with custom inf's from laptopvideo2go they install then when i boot windows, then say they're incompatible and have reverted back to the default VGA drivers.

Acer Aspire R7 571G :: Looses Connection To GeForce Video Card

Oct 12, 2014

I own this model since May 2013, and all this time I have this problem:
 
In my drivers list the NVidia GeForce Mobile sometimes is present and most of the time not.

When it suddenly appears it will stay for a few days or weeks and I can play all the modern games happily. But then something will happen computer will reboot and the driver is no longer in the list, and for month until it will appear suddenly again.
 
This already happened about 5 times. Unfortunately I cannot go to the repair because I bought this device in Taiwan and now I am in rural Russia.
 
I suppose it might be a microcrack in the PCB or maybe a bad sensor or a bad cable, who knows. This is definitlely not a driver or software issue. Or is it?
 
This device is very good, but without GeForce it looses about 25% of it's value.

Acer Aspire V3-571G-6622 :: Won't Recognize NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M Graphics Card

Nov 14, 2014

I was playing Minecraft two days ago using the GeForce GT 730M graphics card not the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics card when suddenly purple squares appeared on the game screen. The purple squares didn't appear any where else. The game crashed saying I had a bad driver. Then the laptop pop a blue screen saying VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE. The laptop restarted as usual. I had this message before but further problems occurred. But this time is different.

After restarting I re-launched Minecraft but the game crashed saying I had a bad driver. I uninstalled the current driver using the programs and features and reinstalled the driver for my laptop found in Acer.com. The issue still continued. I went into Device Manager and found out that the graphics card had a code 43 issue. I found a solution online that said to install the newest driver on GeForce.com.

I did that and it seemed to remove the code 43 but when I went into NVIDIA GeForce Experience it said that my laptop didn't have a NVIDIA graphics card. Thinking it could of been a option that I changed that caused this, I did a refresh, and system restore to still see that my laptop wont recognize my NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M graphics card and that NVIDIA Driver Support Service was gone. It allows me to see when the NVIDIA GPU is in use. The system was cool when I started playing Minecraft when the problem happened.

System Specs:
Acer Aspire V3-571G-6622
NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M with 2 GB of dedicated VRAM
Intel HD 4000 graphics
15.6" HD LED LCD
4 GB DDR3 Memory
Acer NPlify 802.11a/g/n + BT4.0
Windows 8 64-bit

Acer :: 6920g. 9500m To 9600m Gt Swap

Dec 28, 2008

I managed to snag a minor graphics card upgrade for my laptop and installed it. I changed up my 9500m to a 9600m gt. Everything seems to be going great, just needed an HDTV to get it going For some reason it would only initially post video through the HDMI.

Anyway, my issue is, while the machine runs great in windows I can't for the life of me get it to display anything before that. Which includes the BIOS boot screen, the BIOS itself, the Boot Menu or even my Windows XP disc.

Like I said, games run great, windows runs great.

Acer :: TehSuigi's Driver Comparison - 6920G/9500M GS

Nov 20, 2008

here's the results of my 3DMark06 benchmarking.

All tests were run on a vanilla installation of Vista Ultimate 32-bit SP1 with only RMClock and 3DMark06 installed on the system, and HWMonitor included to keep an eye on temperatures.

All tests run at 1366x768 (native res) with default options.

Only drivers with WHQL certificates for this series were included; which means two that supposedly had them, 174.74 and 174.93, aren't shown.

SUMMARY
- The 174 series of drivers is officially obsolete - they clearly benchmark lower than the newer 175 or 176 drivers. Upgrade if you want to.
- 175.61 continues to be an anomaly, with higher-than-average HDR/SM3.0 scores, both in my previous benchmarking before this comparison, and during it.
- The 176 series is probably your best bet overall.
- Temperatures never really were an issue - 73 Celsius was the highest I saw.

Here's the chart - focus on the GPU score instead of the overall 3DMark to remove the variance provided by skewy CPU tests.

Acer :: Adding Second HDD To 7720G

When reviewing this machine I found that it had a second HDD drive bay which I thought would be helpful if I ever needed extra space, that time has come. I made the mistake of buying an identical toshiba drive to put in the second bay as when I opend the second drive bay, it was totally empty, no chasis, no connector, or any sign of where I could attach a connector to the motherboard. Why promote a second drive bay if it can't be used; or can it?
