Acer :: Upgrading CPU In Aspire 7520
I have the Acer Aspire 7520 Laptop with the AMD Turion X2 TK-55 1.8Ghz Socket One.
Using PC Wizard it says I have a Acer Fuquene motherboard and nVidia nForce 560 Chipset. My question is, will this accept any of the AMD Socket One Processors? I was looking at maybe getting a TL-68 2.4Ghz..
I originally bought this computer for my wife so I wasnt too picky on the specs, but now Im finding it more useful than my high powered desktop since I can take it anywhere around the house I want. Only problem is that the laptop just needs a little more grunt for some of the encoding and stuff I do occasionally..

Acer :: Upgrading An Aspire 3690 CPU / Processor
I have a Acer Aspire 3690. It has a Intel Celeron 420 M @ 1.60 Ghz with 512 RAM (Recently updated to 2 GB)
Now I am pretty sure this is compatible with mine: (Here)
(NewEgg seems to be having problems with the website, just fyi, unless it is my computer)
It is a Intel Core Duo T2300 @ 1.66 Ghz. Now I have been wanting to know if the SOCKET is correct. Now according to NewEgg, it says it is a Socket M. Now according to utilities I have been running it says mine is a Socket 479.
So I looked that up and it turns out is it is basically a 478 (478 Pins) but they just said 479 for differentiating. And I have heard that Socket M and 479 are NOT the same and i have heard that they are, because sites such as NewEgg dont have Socket 479 processors cause they are actually Socket 478 Processors.
So anyways, i wanted to look up the package type to help me identify. My Package is a Micro-FCPGA. Now the one I want to get is a Micro-FCPGA as well. Now NewEgg doesn't tell you this.
So i found this place: (Here)
They called there Socket a: Socket 479 Pin.
Then i scroll down and it says: The Intel Core Duo Processors are available in 478-pin Micro-FCPGA and 479-ball Micro-FCBGA packages. This is 478-pin Micro-FCPGA package. Model: BX80539T2300.........................
Acer :: Aspire 7520
I've recently bought the 7520, and at the moment everything is working hunky dory. In fact, it is quite a good machine.
I've made myself both a full bootable recovery disk, and a disk with all the drivers and applications. The only bugbear for me is the customizability that I want to do. I have never owned a laptop before, preferring my desktop pc which I have upgraded to a wonderful, powerful beast.
I bought the laptop so I could be elsewhere in my home and be connected to the net via TP-Link. Even this works great and at full speed. So, currently no problem.
Obviously the OS is Vista 32 bit, which I want to downgrade to XP. On the Acer website there are no XP drivers for the inner components of the 7520, and I am assuming that all the Acer bumpf like 'enet' and 'empowerment', etc, are part and parcel of the drivers...or are they simply Acer software which you can delete without any degredation to the operability of the system?
The truth is, I want my laptop to be a mirror microcosm of my desktop pc. Is it possible for me to downgrade to XP, but beforehand, to find and backup the proper XP drivers for the inner components of my laptop before I attempt to do so?
Acer :: Aspire 7520 XP Drivers

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 TK-57 - 1.9GHz, up to 800MHz FSB, 512KB L2 Cache

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Gaming
I think it has something to do with my CPU getting really fast 100%
I bought a Acer Aspire 7520 for using it on college. It came with Vista Home Premium and I was planning to put XP asap on it. But because everything went pretty smoothly I did not saw a reason to do it inmediatly. So I could play games like Half-life 2, Counter-strike source, and Team Fortress 2 perfectly fine. But after some time I got annoyed like hell by Vista, and by downloading a crack I accidently installed a virus so everything got even worse. So I thought, okay lets install XP inmediatly! After I formatted my hard-drive I installed it with Service pack 2, and it all went great.
Well that's what I thought at the first few seconds. Because after having installed all the drivers I started Team Fortress 2. And suddenly around every 10-20 seconds my ping went from a 30 to 90 or higher. And that ofcourse caused my fps to drop, so this made it impossible to play Team Fortress 2. And after trying allot different drivers I decided to go back to Vista, because the games I wanted to play ran great on it. So now I have Vista Home Premium installed with Service Pack 1 and the drivers from acer that are made to be used with Vista + SP1. But now I got the same ****ing problem, I had in XP. For some unknown reason my ping decides to raise randomly. And makes it again not possible to play a game online because my fps then drops from a nice 72 fps to 9 or lower.
I installed every driver that Acer released for my laptop that are compatible with Vista (32bit) + Service pack 1.
I just have no idea what causes this! I have a antivirus + firewall. And a special anti-spyware/malware/other crap that makes your laptop/pc slow...............
Acer :: Aspire 7520 Will Not Start Or Then Will Not Shut Off
My Acer Aspire 7520 Gemstone Vista,
Will not start but I can hear the fan start then stop after a couple of secs, also the power and hdd leds flash on for 4 secs and then off for 4 secs and keep looping.
But then if I press the on/off button to turn the machine off it will not turn off, even holding the button for 4 secs or more. The only way to turn it off is by disconnecting the battery.
Nothing is connected and nothing appears on the screen.
Acer :: Aspire 7520-5460 Graphics
I bought my laptop last year around christmas time. Surprisingly the nvidia 7000m performed very well. I was able to run Gothic 3 on low specs, and also fallout 3 which ran well on medium specs. But about 3-5 months ago the performance deteriorated a lot. it got so bad that i cant even watch movies on it anymore. All the framerates, on games it ran fairly well before, are unplayable now. I just hope i didnt fry the gpu because it did overheat before, but i just thought it was normal. Ofcourse if i new about this forum before none of that might have happened. There many useful posts here...
Acer :: Crashed WinVista On Aspire 7520
crashed 7520. Vista bsod's on startup and continuously reboots. In the 'Startup Repair' utility, The 'System Recovery Options' box lists no windows Vista installations to repair, even after loading the proper storage drivers... When I browse for Drivers, I can access D:, E: (CD), and X: (??), but not C:. When I try to access C:, I am told I have to format it before I can use it... Looks like C: (and Vista) is toast. Luckily, There are no 'Lost Pictures, etc, issues on this one, just looking for a return to functionality.
What do I need to do to get this machine bootable?
Is there any way to recover from here?
From what I have read so far, It seems I'll need a WinVista disk, but what Version?? (I can read the Product Key, but not the version info on the MS sticker).
I've also seen lots of "driver recovery" CDs and downloads out there, but Do I need them? Will they help me recover the existing Vista install?, or are they just drivers that I can dl from Acer?
What is X:? a third partition?
Acer :: Aspire 7520 Bad Performance
My Aspire 7520 laptop is running good , and all goes well.. But when I want to play a game (lets say WoW) , the game has a strange , stuttering lag... Like when you have to many applications on. Its almost if my computer can't handle it.
My Laptop has these specifications , and i wonder if it has anything to do with this.
Windows Vista Home Premium
AMD 64 Athlon x 2 (Dual-core processor)
NVIDIA GeForce 7000M videocard
120GB hard drive disk space
2024MB RAM DDR
I just bought it brand new, I've had it for about 2 weeks now. And I was wondering how i could make the games go faster... Ive looked about everywhere and no solutions so far.
What i have tried:
-Letting the game run on only 1 core-FAILED
-Trying to set up XP on my computer-FAILED miserably to the point where i was afraid i screwed up my computer fully. Lucky someone helped me, as i couldn't run the backup for some reason... he let me autoboot vista without autobooting XP... next time ill need more info before i F up my computer
(Also , would it help in game performance when i downgrade to XP?)
Acer :: Aspire 7520 Wont Turn On
Just wrapped the notebook inside a blanket and overheated it, then let it cool down.
Now it works.
All i have to do now is to remove the Nvidia gpu stuff left behind and it should be ready for use again.
My problem is exacly the same as the one described in this thread:
Aspire 7520 - will not start or then will not shut off
But i could not find any fix.
My stepdads Acer Aspire 7520G wont turn on anymore.
The wierd thing is that it was working yesterday.
Now it just keep rebooting like seen in this YouTube clip.
Its out of warranty so i was hoping i could try fixing it myself.
With the help of the community here of course.
I been randomly searching Google for help and what i have found out is that this is a common problem, but i have yet to find any fixes other than the suggestion to remove the motherboard and reheat it inside an oven..................
Acer :: Aspire 7520 Tuning Wi-fi Router
This is my internet system: I got a VPN type of connection, i got LAN first, then a direct VPN. The provider hooked me up with those LAN settings (IP, mask, gateaway), so i HAVE to set em the local network settings before i connect, otherwise, my MAC adress gets blocked. After I have bought the laptop, I felt like makin' some Wi-Fi around; so I got MSI RG54GS2 now.
I don't know how to make all this work now, lol. I called my ISP company boss and asked him to disable the router's MAC adress' blocking, so I can free tuning my new router now.
Just gimme some advice which type of connection I should pick, where I should put my previous LAN settings n stuff like that.
Acer :: Aspire 7520 With Continuous Boot Cycle
I booted up my acer aspire 7520 and checked my email then left the room.When i returned the laptop was switched off so i tried to reboot it.Unfortunately it will not boot up anymore,it begins to boot but then switches off and then tries to reboot again.I can no longer access the bios as the boot cycling prevents it.I thought it may have been a hard drive problem so i replaced it with a new one but this has the same effect.The RAM cards have been removed and tried in different slots and this hasn't helped.The only way to stop the laptop from cycling through is to remove the battery.This fault occurs both when trying on battery power and on mains supply.The battery is getting charged ok.Has anyone on this forum ran into this problem before? I have searched on the net for clues on how to fix this but have ran up against a brick wall.There are lots of people who have had this problem but i haven't found a fix yet.The laptop is running Vista home premium.
Acer :: Aspire 7520 Slow Graphics Processing
I have an Acer Aspire 7520 that is 2 years old, the system specs are:
- AMD Athlon 1.8GHz Dual Core.
- 17" WXGA+ CrystalBrite LCD.
- 4 GB DDR2.
- 500 GB HDD.
- NVIDIA GeForce 7000M.
It worked fine for a year but starting the second year, the sound card started to fail, and by that I mean that the sound sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't, but I solved this problem by buying an external sound card.
Two months ago I accidentally hit the laptop in the wall and after that incident the Graphics card can't process anything that requires high or medium graphics for example:
-When I play 720p videos the video runs very slow, it should be noted that I used to play 720p withouth any problem before the accident.
-The Windows Experience Index for Graphics went from 3.4 to 2.0 after the accident.
-Games that used to run at 30-40 FPS, now run at 2 - 3 FPS max.
- Windows AERO runs very slow now, so I if I want to use windows I have to run Windows Classic theme.
Things I've done:
1) Format my PC and tried different OSs XP, 7.
2) Flash the BIOS.
3) Change the Hard Drive with another one.
4) Change the RAM.
None of these things worked.
Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?
- screen went bad?
- Graphics card went bad?
Acer :: CD Stuck In Aspire 7520 Optical Drive
My mum (bless her heart) has managed to get a cd stuck in the optical drive of her Acer Aspire 7520 laptop. The drawer opens but unfortunately the CD remains inside, as far as I can see it's jammed above the metal casing.
I've search everywhere for instructions for removing the drive as I'm pretty certain that this would solve it but alas no luck ..... which is where you guys come in.
Acer :: Aspire 7520-5185, Touchpad Too Sensitive
Does anyone know how to change to sensitivity of the touchpad. It is so sensitive that one minute I am typing and the next I am somewhere else on the page. It is totally driving me nuts. There has to be a way to change it, or is there a way to simply turn it off and I will use a USB mouse.
Acer :: 64bit Drivers For Aspire 7520 Dvdrom Drive
I have Windows Vista 64bit on my Acer Aspire 7520-5311, I thought I had upgraded all my drivers, but I NEVER use my dvdrom drive...
Well I have ordered a dvd that I really need to use on my computer and it won't work at all... I looked in Device Manager and it shows "HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20N ATA DEVICE" and "YPY EN81IZS SCSI CdRom Device" and they both say "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be currupted or missing."
I went to the Acer Europe website for 7520 [url] and I dont see DVDROM drivers under the 64bit column.
Acer :: Aspire 7520 - Cannot Play Anymore New Games Or Even Watch Any Movies On My Laptop
I have a big problem with my acer 7520. The problem is that i cannot play anymore new games or even watch any movies on my laptop. I got the laptop about a year and a half ago and everything worked great. I could watch movies even when other applications were open. I could play pretty demanding games on it that ran very well. And now about 3 months ago all that luxury stopped and i cant do any of those things anymore. Even an old game like rome total war runs at 9 fps or lower on the main map, i didnt even bother going into battle. Movies stutter and skip frames, and sometimes even get stuck on the same frame with the sound still going as if everything is fine.
My specs are:
AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-56 (2 CPUs), ~1.8GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M
Acer :: Upgrading My CPU 7738G From T6500 To T9300
Have a t9300 from an HP Pavillion that died, and figured I could best put it to use in my new Acer 7738g, which currently has a t6500. I've heard it's possible but the whole socket M/socket P thing has me scratching my head...
Also not sure if the 7738 is one of those take-everything-apart-to-get-to-the-CPU jobs or just uncrew the base... and then eventually the heat sink to get to the CPU...anyone with experience with this series?
Acer :: Upgrading My Aspire 5050
I've just bought 4gb (2x2gb) of RAM from Crucial, but I'm sure that's not nearly enough, so I come to you, notebook gurus.
First things first, my battery is getting old and beginning to fail. I used to max it out on a full charge at 2 hours, but now it's down to about 45 minutes from a full charge using every battery-saving technique I can (while still keeping wireless access available). I think a new battery is in order, but I want to know if I'm stuck with generic replacement batteries, or if any of you can direct me to a nice longer-life one, like a compatible 9-cell? I like to move around my house and library a lot, so battery life is most important.
Secondly, CPU. My model is stuck with a MK-36 2.0ghz CPU (90nm). Now I know this uses the S1 socket that a lot of dual core CPU's use, so I was wondering if it would just be a simple case of updating the BIOS, then switching out for a TL-64 CPU (Also 90nm) or similar.
Is this at all possible, I'm wondering? Or am I stuck with a single-core? I've looked at this thread (linked from these forums), but that looks to be going from a dual core already.
Thirdly and lastly, I was looking at this thread linked from here (can't re-find it though) talking about upgrading the GPU, also talking about MXM. My current GPU is an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. Is the Aspire 5050's GPU upgradeable at all? I have built all my computers in the past, but I admit I have never tinkered with a notebook before (despite having the necessary tools). Is it possible that I'd be able to shove a better GPU in there?
If there's anything I'm leaving out that you can think might be worth upgrading I'm all ears. My aim is to have the fastest Aspire 5050 I can.
Acer :: Aspire 9410-2597 Upgrading
I have read the threads as much as possible and I am perplexed by the lack of help from Acer on this. This has a T2060 CPU in it. It has an sata 1.5 HD and I have 2gb of ddr2 pc2-4200. I am trying to find out what can be upgraded and to how much. Acer didn't want to touch it since its out of warranty. The serial number look up from the state it is a 9410z... but on the back of the laptop it states 9410-2597. the mfg date is 070131,
I know that i can plug a 7200rpm drive into it and yes it should take w7 with no problem.
It's been a good laptop and I would like to keep it for a few more years.
Acer :: Aspire 5920G- Upgrading To Vista X64
I have ordered this laptop recently (Spec is below), well, it's due to arrive tomorrow, and am probably going to upgrade to Vista x64, or at least give the new Windows 7 x64 a go on it. However, I'm just unsure as to whether it will be easy enough to migrate or whether I'm likely to have issues finding drivers for the relevant hardware. I hope someone here can give me some advice as attempting to scour the internet for a response for this particular model has been a nightmare, I've found the drivers page but it's all a bit confusing with seperate 64bit and then SP1 sections! ...
Acer :: Aspire 7520G CPU
I have an Aspire 7520G.
ADM Turion 64x2 1.90 Ghz.
Geforde 8400m G 256mb.
3 GB RAM.
I used the acer program ePower management and put everything on max performance.
The CPU is at 100% clockspeed. Only when i play a game, the CPU somethings drops till 80%. This causes major lag spikes for 5-8 secondes.
I got a screenshot where you can see the drops.
What causes this problem?? Is it the because my CPU is overheating? (in the picture is quite stable).
I got the latest BIOS version by the acer helpdesk.

When I shot down the computer it take a long time to be shouted down!
Dell :: Upgrading CPU In My M90
I ordered my M90 on Dell Outlet a while ago. Top of the line everything except the CPU. It's a T2300, I believe (Core Duo, 1.6 Ghz). In preparation for Windows 7, I want upgrade the CPU for speed and for 64 bit.
I'm looking at a T7200 (2.0 Ghz, 667 fsb) for under $100 new, but pulled. First off, just to double check, this will work in my laptop, right?
Second, how involved is replacing the CPU? I've built desktops before no problem, and I've repaired my wife's screen on her HP, but never on my M90. I assume it won't be too bad as long as I follow the manual and keep track of parts.
Dell :: Upgrading The CPU On A E6400
I'm sorry if this has been covered in some other thread. But I was wondering if you could tell me whether or not it is advisable to purchase a new CPU (for example the P9600) and installing it yourself?
It seems rather simple but according to Dell, changing the CPU yourself is not recommended.
Dell :: Upgrading Cpu In M6300
i recently saw some cheap mobile penrynn processors on ebay.
so i think about upgrading my cpu in the future (they get cheaper
from day to day) .
but i have the following questions before further considering that:
1. does changing the cpu on your own void your dell warranty in any way?
2. is it difficult to change it (never opened my laptop before)?
3. can i use ALL of the processors listed on the bottom of this post?
(as the x9000 has 44 watt instead of the others' 35 watt)
4. is it just plug & play /stick the new cpu inside and it works?
here the available processor models:
X90002.8 GHz 6MB44 Watt
T95002.6 GHz 6MB35 Watt
T93002.5 GHz 6MB35 Watt
T83002.4 GHz 3MB35 Watt

Acer :: Aspire 5100 And The AMD RM-70 CPU
I wanted to upgrade my processor on my Aspire 5100 from the so so tl-50 to the RM-70.

Acer :: Change Aspire 5534 Cpu

Acer :: Aspire 5100 CPU Spikes
I have an Acer Aspire 5100 AMD 62x dualcore tk-53 i think its at like 1.7ghz, it came with Vista, I put XP back on it, came with 1gb of ram I upgraded to 4gb hoping it would run fine. To get to the point. When I first got the computer it ran great, however now sometime with it has brought it to this annoying spike in my CPU. I've tried everything I could to keep it down, but it spikes over 100% randomly and at the worst times. I've ran Process Explorer and watched when it spiked, nothing unusual. I've watched my task manager, nothing unusual. I've defraged, ran virus scans, disabled my virus protection, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, reformated, restarted, any and everything I could. I bought a stand for the laptop and a fan so it doesnt overheat. I've check my power settings, my page file remains the same around 555 on average even during the spikes.

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Cpu Upgrade
I recently replaced the T5550 cpu in my Aspire 5920 with a T9500 (SLAYX). I bought the T9500 on E-bay as new, SLAYX, installed it and it works fine. Two different programs (CPU-Z and PC Wizard 2008 identify this processor as a T9500 (ES). The cpu had the SLAYX marking on the top. Is it possible I bought an engineering sample cleverly disguised as SLAYX?
Acer :: Aspire 1410 CPU Upgrade
I read a great review on the 1410 and decided to buy it. Been very happy with it, but discovered that it was the Celeron 743 and not the Core 2 Solo. I didn't realize that until I bought it from Newegg; just thought there was only one CPU offered.
So, my question is, can I upgrade the CPU? If so, what CPUs can I use and has anyone taken an 1410/1810 apart and posted pics or a guide?
Acer :: Aspire 5003WLMi CPU Upgrade
Two upgrade questions. I've done some homework, but I'm not definitively sure about it.
Okay, the laptop has a Turion 64 ML-32. The chipset is a SiS M760GX.
On the SiS website, it says it supports Athlon 64 CPUs.
I would like to know, is it possible to upgrade my CPU from Turion 64 to Athlon 64 safely and second, what is the most powerful CPU I could use on this laptop.
Second is the HDD.
This is what they say about HDD.
SATA & RAID functions
Provides 2 independent SATA ports, compliant with Serial ATA 1.0 Specification, and supports RAID 0, 1, and JBOD configuration.
Fastest storage support. Increasing data/file transfer rate.
Clearly it is an old chipset, but what does this mean and can I upgrade from the 60GB I have today cheaply. What do I have to look for.
