Acer TravelMate P453-M :: Changed BIOS Boot Settings - Black Screen

Jan 19, 2015

Laptop still under warranty. I recently had a motherboard and HDD replacement. I wanted to install Windows myself, but the BIOS was set to UEFI, and I couldn't seem to boot off of a USB drive. So I switched it to Legacy, booted from the pendrive, and installed Windows just fine.
 
For whatever reason, I went back to try and change the setting to UEFI. Now the laptop switches on, but refuses to boot. I get a black screen, with no logo or any prompt whatsoever to access the BIOS. 

I read a bit and seems I need to remove the BIOS battery, let the memory clear itself to reset BIOS settings to default, and try again? If it matters, I re-installed Windows 7 64-bit.

Acer :: I Want To Upgrade TravelMate 8100 HDD, RAM, OS

Jul 1, 2008

I want to upgrade my now-3-year-old TravelMate 8100's HDD, RAM, and OS (to Vista).

The memory is easy enough, but I have a PATA HDD. Do I have to replace it with a PATA drive or can I use a SATA drive? Is there any concern with more power consumption with a faster drive?

I don't know anything about hard drives so I am not sure of the difference of terms like PATA, SATA, ATA-6, etc.

Do I need to flash the BIOS if I change the drive to a SATA one? I see that some of the versions say for SATA systems only.

Acer :: Travelmate 240 CPU Upgrade No Work

Oct 24, 2008

I'm trying to get more grunt and more importantly more go/ less battery hammering (not at the same time..) out of an old TM240. So I bought a 2.8 P4 HT (SL7DS) which in theory should work in this board as it has the 852 chipset. However, when I fit it all I get is the wireless light comes on, and nothing more. Oh, and the light doesn't then go off when I press the power button again..

Works fine if I drop the Celeron back in though.

I can try sticking the P4 in a desktop I've got kicking around to make sure it works, but assuming it does, why doesn't it in the laptop? BIOS is the latest available and the board/ BIOS should be the same as the 250 series, which certainly came with P4 processors

Acer :: Travelmate 2200, Memory Upgrade

Apr 7, 2009

Have just rebuilt an Acer Travelmate 2200,loaded XP Professional on it, but when I try to upgrade the memory from the standard chip it doesnt like it!

If I add an extra 1Gb chip into the spare slot under fan casing it comes up on start up as file missing system32drivers tfs.sys. If I remove the original chip and replace with one 1Gb card only it fires up ok, but again when you try to add the second 1Gb card the same error message, file missing system32drivers tfs,sys comes up.I have looked at a PDF of the instruction manual and follwed to the letter as far as ram upgrade but at this juncture am now completely at a loss as to what to do next.The 2200 will support 2Gb ram so why cant I load it?

Acer :: Laptop (Travelmate 5730)

May 27, 2010

The charger works fine, when pluged into the laptop the light is orange, as soon as we press the power button to turn it on, the orange light goes off, if i press the power button and let go straight away, the light stays off for 5 seconds, if i hold the power button the light stays off for around 9-11 seconds, now the shop we went to says it's a connectivity problem, and i was looking around and i was thinking about the power jack (i'm not big on laptops, more of a desktop kind of guy, so if it doesn't have one lol at me!). Anyway, i'd love to know if anyone knew or had a way of knowing what my sisters problem is, as she'd like to sell this laptop, but needs to clean her HDD of school work and general stuff that she has on it before selling it, and would prefer it to be fully working before sending it away.

Acer :: Upgrading Old Laptop - Acer Travelmate 4502WLMi Running Xpsp3

Mar 14, 2010

I successfully upgrade an old laptop so that it will run well and not be too costly to upgrade either? So slow at present....

Laptop is:
acer travelmate 4502WLMi running xpsp3

Was thinking that probably the only upgrades worth considering were ram and hdd.

If this is the case what size mem and spec will work?

If the hdd is worth upgrading do I go for internal or external? and what size ?

Acer :: Travelmate 4001wlci - Laptop Just Went Blank

Dec 18, 2008

I have an older travelmate 4001wlci and yesterday I was watching a DVD when the screen just froze. I tried everything but the HDD light didn't even blink so I had to hard shutdown.

When I tried to restart the power light comes on and the DVD drive light comes on for a minute as if its trying to read something, but none of the other lights come on. I can't hear the hard drive spinning either and there's no POST. The screen is completely blank. I tried an external monitor and same results, nothing on screen.

For the last several months I have not taken the laptop anywhere so I've had the battery removed and plugged directly to power. Since a year or so, I've removed windows and running mandriva on it without any problems.

For a while, I've had two lines vertically on the screen so I knew the screen or the cable is coming to an end soon, but this doesn't seem like a screen issue.

Do you guys think my motherboard is gone? If so, what is the norm in dealing with this? I don't think it's worth sending this to acer to fix if it's the motherboard considering I don't have a warranty.

Acer :: Extensa 4630G (aka Travelmate 4730G) CPU Upgrade + Pics (56k Warning!)

Sep 12, 2009

I got my laptop this morning, and I was practically overspeeding (well, not really) just so I could go home and do my thang with it. So when I got home, I updated it to SP2 (since I restored it before sending it in for repair) and did the miscellaneous software tweaks I could think of as yet.

And then, it's time for the CPU Upgrade! Wooooooot!

I. Introduction: How was my laptop (dubbed Ciel Noir v1.0) before?

Originally, my notebook came with an Intel T5800. Undervolted at 1.0500v, it ran cool enough at 2.00GHz, and I thought it had a busted thermal sensor since only the ACPI layer temp was working, and the Core 0 and 1 would show anomalous temps of either 4C or 20C or something lower or a bit higher.

Last month I ordered a T9600 from eBay (2.80GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 6M L2 Cache) and I only had an opportunity to install it today. Let's move on.

II. Tests for the T5800

I ran a test on how fast the T5800 boots from the Vista progress bar until when it loads www.yahoo.com (my homepage). Here's what it got:

Test 1: ~ 1:32.01
Test 2: ~ 1:31.00
Test 3: ~ 1:31.95

Sadly I didn't get the chance to record it since the phone I was using for timing it was the same phone I would have used to take a video of it. (My mom is in Singapore and she brought our vidcam lol). So I guess, an average of one and a half minutes is a good baseline.

III. Disassembly, my favorite part

So after I got those times, I shut down the laptop and then got on with disassembly! Yeah~~

I was helped by a service guide I grabbed somewhere, but it shows a Travelmate 4730G--but it kinda looked like (and had the same specs) as my 4630G, aside from three extra screws and an inverted LCD screw assembly (as far as I got into it lol)

So no more waiting, here are the photos:

Here are snaps of when I had the T5800 still inside:

The core temps are inaccurate--like I said I think my mobo sensors are turned off or something.

Here's when I already removed the HDD, RAM and the WLAN board:
BTW when you remove the battery pack, there would be five scews (seven in m 4630G) that yo should take off to remove the switch covers..........................

Acer TravelMate 8473T :: Installing Windows 8 - Drive Not Supported For Boot

Dec 4, 2014

I replaced a dead HD with an Intel SSD on my TM 8473T.  I have the latest BIOS version of 1.23. 
 
I wanted to install a fresh version of windows (via USB) but when I get to the section on creating partitions, I get a "windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computers hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the controllers is enabled in the BIOs menu".
 
The BIOs shows the SDD and the initial setup of widows shows that partitions are created but the install does not continues copying files over.

Acer TravelMate P255-MG :: Windows 8.1 Update - Video Fatal Error

Mar 6, 2015

I have an acer TravelMate P255-MG with Intel core i5 and AMD Radeon graphics HD 8750M. I recently updated my laptop os from windows 8 to 8.1. Now everytime i put it on sleep mode(and the light goes on and off showing that it's in the sleep mode), once i turn it on again, it restarts and all my unsaved work is gone. Sometimes I shut it down and the next day i turn it on and it gives a "Video FATAL error". I'm downloading the drivers needed from the website( VGA Intel and VGA AMD). Will these drivers solve the problem?

Acer TravelMate P255-MG :: Unable To Install Graphics Adapter Driver For Windows 7

Oct 2, 2014

I am new commer here and this is my first post. I have recently purchased this nice laptop: Acer TravelMate P255, Intel Core i3-4010U (1.70GHz, 3MB), 15.6" FullHD (1920x1080) LED-backlit Anti-Glare, HD Cam, 4096MB 1600MHz DDR3L, 1TB HDD, DVD+/-RW, AMD Radeon R7 265 2GB, 802.11n, BT 4.0, Linux : NX.V9GEX.004
 
I would like to change it's preinstalled Linux with a Windows 7 version. But I don't know which exact versions of Windows 7 this particular model is compatible with, because I failed to install the AMD graphics adapter driver from the support DVD disk on a Windows 7 64bit. Do I miss something ? Need I, for example, make any changes in the BIOS ?
 
I have found same drivers to download, but none of them was successfull for my laptop.

Acer :: Windows 7 Upgrade Kit

Feb 6, 2010

I had bought an Acer laptop with Vista Home Premium 32 bit in the period before the launch of Windows 7, and applied for the free Windows 7 upgrade kit.

Acer sends an upgrade disc that is of the same type as your Vista OS.

So I got an upgrade disc for Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit, as well as a product key on the COA.

What I want to ask is whether it is possible for me to install Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit through a clean install by finding a friend with the normal retail Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade DVDs, using the 64 bit DVD and then entering the product key that came with my Acer 32 bit Windows 7 HP upgrade disc.
