Acer :: Can You Keep A Netbook Upside Down
I have an aspireone that im using in a carputer setup. Rather than mounting it on the floor right side up with the vents to the carpet, I plan on mounting it upside down, giving the vents inches of airspace. Is this a good idea or will the heat rising this way be bad... or will this bring down the hdd's life?
Acer :: Post Disk Formatter CD ISO Image
I'm trying to install Vista on a new hard drive for a Acer Aspire 5100. From what I researched, I believe I need to create the PQSERVICE partition. I'm trying to retrieve the 'Post Acer Disk Formatter CD ISO Image'. I believe it is a file named 'Diskformatdt_v1-1d.iso'. I read some of the threads on this website about how to retrieve the file from Acer's website,......................
Acer :: Backup/Factory Recovery Make Your Own Factory Image?
I have been given an Acer 6930G by a family member to setup. After realising there's 0 discs included with the laptop, the Acer pop up message tells me I have to make my own factory default image. I have successfully made it on 2 DVDs, my question is now in the manual there is nothing about how to use it, I was wondering if anyone can share any insight to me as to how it works.
Basically I know it is probably a bootable DVD as the root of the DVD suggests (several "BOOT" files) I was wondering how it actually looks like? I haven't tested it yet as the user was extremely desperate to get it running so I had to give it up the moment the DVDs were made.
If I put the DVD in and select to boot from it at start up (before getting into windows) does it take me to some sort of custom screen where I can SELECT that I want to reformat and restore the laptop? I want to know what options I am given and I can only assume that it's the same for most laptops.
And I can only assume again, that if I factory restore it, it will come back with Vista activated and all the initial bloatware again, along with all the drivers for it (so I don't need to go track them down).
This is all I need to know, I wish I can test it but I can't even get the laptop back now (until it breaks ...)
If someone can post their experiences with it I will be grateful, this is just more for reassurance than anything, and confirm my assumptions? Many thanks in advance!
EDIT: I have discovered that I can launch that recovery app by pushing ALT+F10, I have managed to wrangle the laptop temporarily to test and have discovered that I can choose from 2 back up options, but I dare not go any further, can someone tell me the next steps? One says factory default, and the other is user's backup.
I can guess that if I choose the first option, factory default, it'll ask for the DVDs I have created? And the 2nd option will restore a backup I made selecting the user option on the recovery app.
Dell :: Studio 15 Webcam Center "No Supported Webcam Driver Detected" SOLVED
A few days before I was going to shipping my Studio 15 off. I looked in the box and low and behold I found the Dell Webcam Center disk that I originally thought that Dell had forgotten to include.
Upon installation I found that the specific version of Dell WC that came with my Studio 15 is not the same one that you find at the downloads center on support.dell.com.
I could never get the downloaded Dell WC to work, even after numerous chats with technical support. No matter how many times I contacted Dell about this, they claimed there is only one version of Dell Webcam Center. Clearly that isn't true .....
Acer :: XP On 5920: Mic/Webcam
I've been having issues with Vista on this machine, so yesterday I decided to scrap Vista and all the Acer software and install XP Pro. Now I have XP Pro SP3 installed.
I Googled and downloaded the XP drivers needed for audio (RealTek), webcam (Suyin), etc, and while they work, I'm having problems. The webcam worked great before the switch to XP.
1. The webcam video quality is very poor, like an old tv that needs to be thrown out.
2. The audio pick-up of the built in microphone is extremely low. I've gone through all the adjustments I can find with no luck. This has actually gotten worse as I've tried to upgrade drivers and what-not. Before the audio quality was poor but it worked, now the audio is barely there at all.
I have been trying to upgrade drivers both from the Acer website and from other sources, but I'm not making any progress. I installed the drivers before upgrading to SP3 (which I had read was the way to go), but now that I have installed SP3 and am reinstalling drivers, it seems like things have gotten worse.
Acer :: Webcam Of 1810T
I've found out that the webcam is a Suyin, I installed drivers from acer website.. and the result is still terrible.
The webcam is so slow, like 1 fps. Even when not in videocall and using acer crystal eye webcam to set it, it's slow, pixelated and sloow.. I don't mind about the colour, yellowish but adjustable, but I do mind about the fps and quality.
I guess it's a driver matter, because the driver installed is the microsoft's standard one. But I couldn't manage to get better results, also some of the settings like auto and white balance or camera control are not selectable.
Acer :: Aspire Crystal Eye Webcam
This ones just a small problem. My webcam works fine, but it's missing on the menu and i can't locate it anywhere in my files so it's just a bit annoying if i want to make a video. It's not even in the manual (printed or computer version). It took three weeks before it appeared in the menu after I bought the laptop, but since I had to restore to factory default and god knows where it is, as i say it's only a minor problem, no location in services. and when i expand my Acer menus theres nothing there either.
Acer :: 6920 Webcam Hijacked
I got some great information from the people on here previously and I'm back for more advice.
I have the ACER 6920 Gemstone Blue, it has a built in webcam called Acer Crystal Eye.
As I get older the paranoia gets worse, and lately I've been wondering who is watching me! I have been using Skype, Msn, Yahoo messenger and Facebook to stay in contact with family back home. I am not at all convinced about the secuity of these programs and wonder if I have been hijacked.
How can I check to see if my webcam has been hijacked?
Is there some where that I can look to see if it is in use?

Acer :: Webcam- Aspire 5520
I have a new OTB acer aspire 5520, and on initial booting everything worked sweetly but when i am trying to access my crystal eye cam on YM or any IM programs it says the webcam is not connected, Now I checked device manager and there is no webcam, so i installed the driver from the erecovery management tool I tried first the BISON driver and utility without success upon installation the program says the computer should display a "found new hardware" message, but nothing showed up. then when it restarted my machine and when i checked on device manager still no cam... next i uninstalled the BISON driver and installed the 2nd one (SUYIN) with the same results. I searched the support and download section of ACER online and tried a third driver the CHICONY and still the same results.. Finally i re installed my system to full factory default and re tried everything still the same problems...
Acer :: TravelMate 7520 Crystal Eye Webcam
I have a TravelMate 7520 with Crystal Eye Webcam, I had to reinstall my vista. Once this was done my webcam didnt work, it showed camera not found.
I have been playing about with it, which ended up meaning I unstall everything (I think). I have installed loads of drivers and software for the webcam but all failed, the camera just doesnt seem to turn on...
I have taken my screen apart unplugged it, uninstalled software, plugged in and reinstall but nothing..Plus once I have installed the driver, I look in device manager and see nothing relating to my webcam.
what I need to download, how to install and how to check the driver is in place
Acer :: Aspire 5610 WebCam & BSOD
I have an Aser Aspire 5610 - 2328. The model is 5610z. I have the same issue with my webcam and it is orbicam with logitech software. I also here the unplugging sound and also get BSOD's. My laptop is under warranty and it has been sent in to be checked. They could not find any issues also when I click the orbicam icon first try it shows it disconnected. I try again it works. They still claim its working and nothing they can do they have also seen what it doese when clicking on the icon and still claim its working.
Not sure if they really checked the connections I will look into it. It is under warranty thru Wal-Mart and was sent to a place called Cyber Test in Longwood Florida.
Acer :: Software For Aspire 4720 Webcam (XP)
I bought an Acer Aspire 4720, installed Windows XP and Linux Ubuntu. On XP, I can see the webcam working as a USB device, but I don't have any software to make it "do" something other than showing my ugly face.
I need to record, shoot some still images, and being able to video chatting (i.e. msn messenger).
What software can I use? Do I need something else (driver)?
The webcam is working, but has no software to handle it.
Acer :: Aspire 5930G Suyin Webcam
I've got problem with my webcam. She worked well when I had got linux Fedora 9 and preinstalled MS Windows Vista. Later I changed Vista 32 bit on Vista 64 bit and I long didn't used the webcam. Later I updated my bios under MS Windows Vista x64 (to v1.19 earlier I had got v1.15). One day I wanted to make a foto with webcam but with no success because Suyin application say Camera not found. Webcam "Vendor ID" is 0c45 and "Product ID" is 63e0. These values indicate on Sonix Webcam but I'am sure that I've got Suyin Webcam and that before I had corect Vendor ID and Product ID for Suyin Webcam. I want to add that i have tried to downgrade to older bios but it makes no difference. I want my Webcam back.

Acer :: Crystal Eye Webcam/Unknown Device - 5739g
I basically used my webcam every night with Skype to talk to my friends. The very next day, it stops working. Ive literally tried everything. In the device manager, I have an "Unknown Device" listed as a USB. Im 100% sure this use to be my Camera.
I just used the Acer factory CDs to reinstall my OS + Drivers. All the drivers were successfully installed with the exception of the Camera Drivers (because the computer doesnt see a camera)
I tried to download the drivers from the Acer website but (both Chicony and Suyin) and everytime I try to install them a error comes up that says "Camera not found!" I have a laptop so I have no clue how its not finding it.
ive been working on this for hours now and its really getting frustrating. Here are the things ive tried, and if someone knows a solution or a different method I havent tried to fix it, PLEASE let me know
1. Reformatted computer using Acer recovery discs
2. Downloaded and tried to install drivers from acer website (camera not found problem)
3. Put windows in Safe mode, uninstalled unknown device, restarted computer to let it automatically scan/update (still failed)
4. Deleted all pictures from My Pictures
5. Tried using Windows Vista drivers and setting to Vista Compatibility mode (I have windows 7), no avail
6. Uninstalled and reinstalled Unknown Device (aka camera) driver, didnt work
7. Tried the windows update software option, windows said everything was fine (pshhh).
8. Uninstalled unknown device, used the option "scan for hardware changes" still didnt work
9. Installed skype to see if the webcam would be recognized, which it wasnt.
Acer :: 6920G- Webcam, Blue-ray And A Speakers Query Too
I've had this laptop for a day now and am having some issues which I wonder if anyone could help me with.
1. Integrated 'Crystal Eye' webcam
I can't get it to work with Live Messenger. I can only hear the audio from the other person (no video). They also can only hear me and not see me. When I try the Audio/Video tuning wizard my webcam shows fine?
2.Acer Arcade Deluxe
I tried out the Blu-ray drive when I first tried out the laptop and it worked fine. There was a prompt when the Arcade software was first started to inform me that there was a software update available and that if I didn't update then some Blu-ray discs may not play. I ignored the prompt originaly and as I said Blu-ray dics played fine.
I decided to update the software as was recommended but as soon as it was updated, Blu-rays no longer played, nor did normal DVD's. All I got was a multi-coloured blank screen in Arcade and that was it. The disc didn't even spin up.
I uninstalled Arcade and re-installed the original version and it works again. Anyone else had this problem? Any work around?
3. Built-in speakers
The speakers on this laptop sound amazing especially compared to my old Aspire. However, when watching say, a DVD, then whilst the sound is impressive for laptop speakers, speech sounds very off centre (weighted to the right channel). However, all other background sound etc. is separated normally. I notice that the speakers are set a little to the right - could this be the reason?
4. CineDash Media Console
I'm finding the responsiveness of the touch panel hit and miss. Is this the same for everyone else? EG. adjusting the volume - I slide my finger up the curve to turn up the volume and sometimes it works fine and others I have to do it a few times before it responds. Some for the other buttons, like 'ENTER' - sometimes a light touch is all that's needed, other times I have to press it hard.....................
Dell :: XPS 1645 Drive Image
I have spent two plus days searching thread after thread and I am not getting anywhere! If someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I just got my 1645 yesterday and what I want to do is to remove the hard drive and put it into my desktop and create an image. I will be formatting the drive removing all three partitions and install another OS. Later on down the road I want to be able to reimage my drive with the original backup. I do not want to clone the drive as I will be using it... I have tried Drive Image and it successfully makes a backup image and when I use it to image another drive the 'OS' & 'Recovery' partitions are fine, and the computer even boots into Windows. But when I use F8 to access the repair console I get a '0xc000000e' error. All of the information I find is somewhat outdated and refers to the period when Dell used Mediadirect.
Dell :: Constant Distorted Image
Dell Inspiron 9400
CPU: Intel Centrino Duo T2400 1.8ghz
Video: geforce go 9700 gs
HD: Seagate 80gb 7200 rpm
Problem: I was using my typing a word document when all of the sudden a pattern of yellow distortion came accross the screen and windows frooze. I tried rebooting windows but even the splash screen that came up right after you turn the computer on is distorted, during startup every image is distorted somehow including the windows splash screen and all shown dos screens(random characters all over the place in dos). It won't boot into windows normally, it gives a blue error screen and then restarts but it will go into safemode (with distortion of course). I tried plugging into two different crt monitors to see if it was a problem with the monitor but they displayed "Signal out of range." I plugged into an LCD monitor and it would display the image but still showed a "Signal out of range." box bouncing around even though it was showing windows in safe mode (still distorted.) I have never seen this problem before. I booted from an xp cd and did a fixboot comand but it still won't boot into windows normal. I uninstalled the video drivers in safemode which would then allow me to boot into windows but I still had the distortion. I reflashed the mobo bios. (nothing changed) Reinstalling the drivers would cause it to crash and then not allow me to boot into anything but safemode unless I uninstalled the drivers. The problem went away completely for about a day and I was able to install the drivers again and everything was working fine but later it happened again. I noticed that while the computer is having the problem hibernation is impossible (doesn't show the option anywhere). I tried replacing the video card (most obvious culprit at this point) and that didn't even work! I'm thinking it needs a new motherboard entirely.
Dell :: 1510 Restore Image
I have a vostro 1510 and I need to restore my laptop to how I first got it. Ive read about pressing f8 and it taking you to the advanced boot screen and that you just press the down arrow keys to repair your computer...the only problem is that there is no repair your computer option on that screen.
Dell :: Factory Image Corrupt
Recieved a New XPS 1340, powerd on went through the setup screens, got to where Windows indicated it was preparing my desktop, and the screen went blank waited about a half hour same blank screen. Called Dell Support, finally got through cell, phone service was real bad.
Dell :: Factory Image Restore
I am trying to restore my laptop (studio xps 16) to factory settings using the recovery image. If I look in my computer, i can see C and D drives.
D is my recovery partition with 7gb full out of 10gb. This is good and dandy except when i open the D drive, there is one folder that says RECOVERY that is empty. Why is it empty when there are 7gb's of files in there? I already have hidden files shown
Apple :: What Image Editor/creator Do You Use On A Mac
I have firefox for my browsing needs, MS Office for Mac 2008 for my office software, iTunes and Quicktime as my media player (they will play everything won't they?), and now i'm looking for a replacement for paint.net.
I don't need all the features of photoshop, although I gather many many mac users just opt for pirating it
Gimp isn't properly "native" and I hate the gimp tbf. Gimpshop is the same. Seahorse hasn't been updated for 2 years.......
I'm at a loss. What do I do for a paint.net equivilent on a mac? What if I buy photoshop elements? Is that just for photo's, or can I make avatars on it too etc...?
How do you cope? What do you use? Do you just pirate photoshop?
Acer :: 7720g Access Denied When Installing New Webcam In Windows 7

Acer :: [ 1410/1810T/1810TZ] Successful Webcam Update
I took an MSI Wind U100 webcam, it has the classic USB connection you expect for! The connector is at right instead at left like the original one.
-A WindU100 Webcam (1,3 Megapixel, a very good framerate),
-A decent soldering skill
-A lot of patience, and much more crazyness.
I don't want to post a Tut how to do it, you need only to know that pinout is the same and the colours are the same.
11 Black 3.3V
22 Purple D+
33 Red D-
44 Orange GND
Don't care about the fifth (GND too).
You need four wires to move the connection from the right to the left,and some dremel to leave out some "plastic keys" about the old one. Newer is a little thicker that the old one, so dremel the plastic at back of the webcam too.
The WindU100 Webcam has a led to show when it's used, so if you want you can do a hole to see it in the Acer. I didn't: the plastic is white so i see it too...!
A good idea is to change the whole cable if you have the MSI original one, but i didn't dismantle all....
Dell :: How To Clone / Image My HD, If I Need To Change HD On My M4400
I heard some crackling from my hard drive (presumably) and then all the hard drive functions stopped. I could move the mouse but opening files, folders etc. wasn't happening.
So it seems the HD just stopped working. I had to force reboot and after that all was fine again.
I'd like to make an image/clone of the hard drive in case I need to exchange it to a new one. Can someone point me to a good preferably free program that does the job. I have Vista 64bit OS and a 250GB HD that is some basic model that Dell ship
Dell :: Factory Image Restore 1640
trying to do a factory image restore on my Studio XPS 1640. I've done this before on other Dells but this one I don't see the Dell image restore option as said in the booklet.
I don't see the Dell Facotry TOols either. I just have the following: startup repair, system restore, system image recovery, windows memory diagnostic, and command prompt.
I chose system image recovery and it doesn't pull up anything - it's for my own images I made. No option to pull up my Dell factory image which I still have in it's own seperate partition.
HP/Compaq :: Laptop's Screen Has No Image, But Light Is On
I broke the hinge of the laptop's lcd. I replace the hinge, there was a cable that was broken, I realize that cable was not related to the lcd since it was connect to the wireless network chip.
I made sure all the lcd cable are plug in the laptop motherboard.
On the back of the lcd, there was white tape and it said do not touch, I accidentally touch this by mistake. I don't know if this is really serious.
Now, the laptop does not have any picture, but the light is on, the lcd has a grayish color, its like its about to load, but no image comes up.
This issue occurred during the hinge breaking.
I hope I didn't break the lcd.
Model is dv2037us.
The laptop is fine if I hook it up to a monitor via vga port.
Apple :: Best Free (basic) Image Editor
What is the best free image editor. Something equivalent to Paint on Windows. I am very surprised OS X doesn't come with a basic image editor because it comes with almost everything else. If it does come with an image point me in the right direction because I can't seem to find it.
HP/Compaq :: HP DV7-3079wm HDMI Output Underscanned Image
I'm having a problem with HDMI output from my dv7-3079wm to my 37" LG 1080p LCD. When I view the input on my TV, there is a black border around the image (like it is overscanned?). This happens at most resolutions, except for 1360x768, and I would like to watch Blurays in 1080p. So I'm not sure why it is doing this. I also tried this on a 42" Hitachi 720p TV with the same result (all resolutions) so I don't think that it is the TV. I couldn't find any settings in Catalyst Control Center also. My graphics card is an ATi Mobility Radeon 4650.
Apple :: Finding The Windows 7 Beta Image (To Delete It)
I never got around to installing the Windows 7 beta image, but now I have no idea where I saved it on my MacBook Pro. I definitely did download it. What were the names for the 64-bit downloader (I forget if there was a downloader or how I downloaded it, it was official from Microsoft's site, though) and the 64-bit Windows 7 image? It'd be good to clear up a few GBs from my HD.
Dell :: Inspiron 6400 On External Monitor, Regions Of Image Flash
I have been using an external LCD monitor hooked to my inspiron 6400 for 6 months, everything is fine. but 2 days ago when I moved the laptop a little far away from its old place,
I tried to add a 6-feet VGA extension cable to the present VGA cable of the external monitor . the image with extension cable is horrible, so I take the extension cable off and move the laptop back to the old place. and a problem showed up:
when I hook my inspiron 6400 to the external LCD monitor via VGA port on the laptop, some regions of the image on the external monitor flash (if I put on a document, the words are shaking, or "dancing"),
for example the upper right corner, and the middle section of the screen are doing this right now. and if I take the VGA cable off and put it back on, the flashing region changes. but one thing for sure: Not all the screen flash, only several regions.
