Acer :: Aspire 6920G- Ram Upgrade

Dec 27, 2008

I noticed that on my windows score my ram was the lowest. Why? I have 3 Gb the max I can have for a 32 bit OS. is it because the ram is DDR2? Is there really a point to upgrade my ram? Will it make my computer faster? Or is it possible to upgrade my ram on my acer aspire 6920G?

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Throttling & Upgrade

Apr 16, 2010

My notebook has worked fine until about half a year ago when the CPU is overheating from doing little tasks such as skyping and having the internet open. So I read up on the topic and ended up here. I have rmclock installed and adjusted it a bit but no real effect. I also don't want to mess up my laptop by frying it.

For the Aspire 6920G with Intel T5750 @ 2GHz what do I have to set my FID and VID at?

other question:
Would you recommend upgrading my CPU or is the current one sufficient? (I use it for occasional gaming (Empire total war) and multimedia applications such as photo-shop)

If so what other components would I have to change?

Would it increase the performance of my laptop?

Acer :: 6920G Max Upgrade, Cpu+gfx+hd

Dec 9, 2009

I have an acer 6920g which i intend to upgrade to the maximum possible starting with the cpu, after a bit of research the only contenders are the T9500 and the X9000 but im wondering if its worth it for the x9000 as i believe the bios is locked out on my acer so wouldnt be able to overclock it.

Even still it is 200mhz faster than the T9500 but am i going to notice this in the real world?

Next will be memory, apparently the chipset only supports up to pc5300 667mhz ram but will take pc6400 800mhz ram and downclock..

So to confirm, there is no gain in putting in faster ram?

Either way i will be putting in 4gb of decent low latency ram.

Now for a tricky 1, graphics......

I currently have an ati hd3650 512mb card that resides in an mxm2 slot which when i bought the laptop was the best gfx card i could find in it but no i want to put a 9600gt in to compliment the rest of the upgraded system (as i do play the odd game!) but have not found anything confirming if they work fully, i have found a card on ebay that has an acer bios and is ddr3, i'm assuming that with an acer bios it should work?

Also i will be putting in a large but fast hard drive such as this

Acer :: Best MXM Upgrade For My 6920G

Oct 25, 2009

My 6920G has a Geforce 9500M GS card in it atm. I have overclocked it as far as it will go and tbh, I'm still not happy.

What is the best compatible upgrade?

Am I right in thinking it's MXM-II and therefore the best card would be a 9600GT DDR3 that is found in the top-spec 8930G Aspires?

Is there anywhere that sells these cards with the Acer BIOS already installed?

I'm guessing a card from another brand laptop or with generic BIOS won't work?

Acer :: 6920G Screen Upgrade

Oct 6, 2009

I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks 720p just isn't enough.. I've been shopping for a new LCD panel for my 6920G, but was wondering a few things:

Brief background on my box:
T5750, 4GB, BD (Optiarc), PM965, 9500M GS, 1366x768.

Ideal:
T9300, 4GB, BD (Optiarc), PM965, 9600M GT, 1920x1080.

I'm going to start with the LCD panel first. The benefit from CPU upgrades seems nominal, and GPU upgrades seem expensive and a PITA.

a) Is there a guide/howto regarding how to change panels yet?
b) Is there any issues going from 1366x768 -> 1920x1080? Is it even possible?
c) I can't seem to find reliable places that sell the SAMSUNG, is a place like this reputable: [url]

Acer :: 6920G Win 7 Upgrade Battery

Feb 24, 2010

I noticed some of you are using Acer 6920G with Windows 7 (TehSuigi for example).

I only recently upgraded from Vista and experienced serious degradation of battery life.

It went from 2:45 to less than 2 hours immediately, and today it was closer to an hour.

I was wondering if anyone else experienced this problem and how you dealt with it. I thought maybe a BIOS upgrade could fix it, but I haven't tried this yet. Some claim it's a OS issue, some claim it's a manufacturer issue. Any feedback is appreciated, as I need to go on a trip soon and I need my battery working

Acer :: 6920g- Upgrade To Intel 5300 Wifi

Oct 30, 2009

Just recieved my intel 5300 wifi card ready for the upgrade.

Upgrade physically went semi well, the 4965agn that was fitted was a devil to get out.

Seems like acer decided to get superman to tighten the two screws that hold the wifi card down. In the end the only solution was to remove the 2 pillers from the pcb(with pliers and brute force) and remove the card.

Windows xp fired up fine, no wifi connected popup. drivers were my first thought.

Checked device manager, code 10 on the device. tried new drivers, old driver sets, no progress.

Also there was a few links about the pcie 2 and pcie 1 compatiblity problems. But a pcie2 card should run at the pcie1 speeds when fitted to that slot, so that shouldnt be the problem.

Ive ordered a 2nd intel 5300, one that should be 'more' compatible..we will see. will post update on that when it arrives.

as of this point id say that the intel wifi 5300 does not play well with the acer 6920g.

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Fps

Jul 16, 2009

I've got the acer aspire 6920G, and when i play world of warcraft my fps drops to 7 in 25man raids. I play with really low options.

I've always had low fps, i tried installing windows Xp, vista and now windows 7 and nothing helps.

Now i must say, win7 had the best result. My fps increased in major cities, but in raids it's still the same thing.

I defragged my HD, I use a 64bit to use my full ram, I run no background programs, all options are on low, and i still get 7fps.

Acer :: Aspire 6920G RAM 3GB Or 4GB

Jan 22, 2009

i've just got an Acer Aspire 6920G and i have a question about the RAM.

The sticker on the palmrest says it has 4GB of DDR3 RAM, as does the box. But the system information on the computer says 3GB, CPUz says it has 4GB.

I've opened it up and there are definitely 2 sticks of 2GB DDR3 RAM, so why does the Windows system info say it only has 3GB?

Acer :: GTA IV & Aspire 6920G

Mar 9, 2009

I have a Acer Aspire 6920g with the following specs:

Geforce 9500m GS 512MB
4GB RAM
Inter Core 2 Duo Processor T5750 2.0 Ghz
Windows Vista SP1 Home Premium

I have tried lowering settings to lowest, but i only notice a couple of fps gain.. So if i change my settings from medium to low, i notce +3 fps wish seems really weird. I tried using a lot of tweaks with the commandline, turning off clip capture.. but nothing help, it's still runs at about 15-17fps. Ireally love this game, and I hope i can play it at an acceptable speed. I understand that the game is extremely unoptizmed, but i hope there is something i can do.

I've tried a couple of drivers like the ones on acer site 176, 179.28, 179.48, 182.50 (dox).. but i noticed that all are about the same.. I even tried installing XP, but that didn't help either.

so what do you think i should do?

And for those who have acer 6920g, are you able to play GTA4 fine?

Acer :: How To Take Out Aspire 6920g Dvd-r Out

Jan 15, 2009

this thing makes a loud noise and know one responded to my thread concering my DVD-R :'I'll guess I have to do it on my own or call acer support . But how can i take this thing out so i can see if some screw is lose or there is some dents(How could there be dents who knows)I'd like to see the and were they are located...i'll probably be ended calling support with my dad, Hes another thing. Some CD's it makes no noise, and its always working with those CD's. Other CD's make hella lotta noise...this is a werid conclusion but I THINK DVD's make no noise, and CD's make noise, now not just Music CD's but i mea CD's with 700m not 4 gb like DVD's.

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Wubi

Mar 16, 2009

I have an acer aspire gemstone blue 6920G, and I am wondering, can I use wubi to install Ubuntu on this laptop? As you may know the laptop has one Partition for windows vista, one has XP (Acer instant on), and one has the repair partition, meaning all my boot Partitions are taken. Also theres a data Partition. Even with the boot partitions all taken can I use Wubi? I know it may stop the instant on from working, I don't really care about that.

Acer :: Aspire 6920g Gaming

May 24, 2009

Im having a small gaming problem here. Im playing world of warcraft on my Aspire 6920g and it works perfectly smooth for like 5 minutes then starts performance decrease until its very bad. If I minimalize the game, for like, one minute and then maximize it back, it works perfectly smooth for some time again. I have no idea how to fix it. It probably isnt overheating as it occurs after I launch my lappy and then the game(the laptop is cold).

I have an Aspire 6920G, and people on this forum recently recommended I get a T9500 as the processor upgrade with "the best" performance. I just want to confirm, before I make the purchase, that this processor is indeed the fastest 1 I can get for my laptop, and that my laptop can actually handle it (FSB, mobo, heat, etc.).

i have this shutdown problem. it started since i installing windows 7 into my laptop. my computer turns of itself after 10-30 seconds after an OS boot. except on safe mode option. the computer works fine on safe mode. at first, i thought that this due to software problems. then i think i should wipe out my OS and install new OS.but unfortunately, my laptop turns of itself while installing the OS!. this sound weird isnt it?

ive tried to use multiple OS to be installed. win7, vista, and even unbuntu OS also. but the turn off problem still occurs..

ive read from other post about the thermal issues, doing some patches at BIOS download from acer websites. now, im running on v1.14 for my BIOS. still. the turn off issues still occurs.

so, ive tried to look for the hardware malfunctions since trying to look at software problems cant find a clue.

after doin some reasearch and testing, ive notice that by disabling my duo processor in device manager, the computer works fine. by using single core processor now makes my laptop works fine. but surely, im running on low state now.

should i change my processor?

Acer :: Aspire 6920G And Crystal Eye

Jan 23, 2009

I've had this problem for a couple of weeks now. Didn't notice this until I installed Windows 7, but now my webcam does not work. I think it has to do with my laptop falling off the couch as I had problems after that getting the card reader to work (card reader is fine now). I have tried running the Crystal Eye program in XP, Vista 32-bit, Vista 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit with no luck (it just says camera not found). Occasionally in Vista I will get a popup error message saying a usb device has malfunctioned, and when I look in device manager it says unknown device.

Acer :: Aspire 6920G Windows XP

Apr 9, 2009

Alright, I recently installed Windows XP Dark Edition on my 6920G. Now, before going any further, yes this isn't an official version, it's a mod made by people... however, it does work- I installed it on my friends Dell and he has no problems whatsoever.
So, I changed the HDD to IDE mode because SATA and XP don't go together! The whole thing was working fine for about 20 days until this morning the laptop froze. I couldn't move the mouse, and task manager wasn't working. I turned it off and restarted- only to see the load ar on windows freeze. It stays like this for ever and I'm forced to manual restart again. The only thing that successfully works is Safe Mode...
----------------------------------
Now, to give a little background info, I've installed another version of XP before this. I had the same problem after a few days no matter how many reinstalls. Also, the XP repair feature (and this is what worries me) says:
No HDD found. Please ensure drives are powered on blah blah...
So, I'm here without a laptop and this familiar problem of a ed OS! Last time, I just formatted the C: drive, and reinstalled. I even updated BIOS incase that was an issue.
----------------------------------
Now, I know reinstalling the OS may cure the problem, but it's only a temporary fix, and I want a real solution. I rang Acer support, who tell me it's probably a software problem from microsoft update... I don't really believe this since each time (and I've done about 6 reinstalls of XP) the timing of this fatal error is random, ranging from one day to this- about 20 days.
