I have a 4 Months old 2920Z laptop with Vista Home Permium. After 100% charged, After 1 or2 days in AC Power, Battery Meter shows "98% available, plugged in not charging". Even replaced the battery with a new one. Still the same problem. if I use the battery for a while less than 95% and if i plugged it in ac power it is charging and shows 100%, fully charged. After two days same problem.
So it is charging, but not holding the charge for some days. Battery replaced with a new one. Laptop is still under waranty.
I am getting 2 hour 20 minutes battery backup.
Would like to know root cause for this problem. Hardware or Vista. If Hardware battery of any other part?
I've recently downgraded an Aspire 6930 from Vista to XP and am having difficulty getting the computer to recognize that it has a modem! If I can just get the ethernet/modem/WiFi up and working I'd be set. Does anyone have any idea where I can find the drivers I need to get this thing up and working?
i got an acer Aspire 4720z. it came w/ vista in english.. i follow all the rules to install XP.. i do it right. but on the Device Manager still are some unknow device that i don't know how to solve that.
i install xp service pack 3. (with nLite helps)
also the wifi dosen't work (i think the device is not installed)
I just got my 7520 and have wiped Vista off it and installed Ubuntu and Xp, my nix is fine I am havin trouble finding drivers for XP and most of the vista drivers dont work in XP, I have managed to find Wifi and sound worked pretty much straight away but cant seem to find anything else that will work for me..... anyone got any ideas to help with this, I have tried driver download apps(like driver detective) and they dont seem to want to find the nvidia graphics driver.
Specs follow:- Processor: AMD Athlon 64 TK-57 - 1.9GHz, up to 800MHz FSB, 512KB L2 Cache RAM: 1GB DDR2 (2 x 512MB) Hard Drive: 80GB Serial ATA 5400rpm Screen: 17" Widescreen TFT (1440x900) with CrystalBrite Technology Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 7000M
I am using Aspire 4920G, but i was not able to find any driver soft ware for my laptop when i changed the Original Vista i had to Windows Xp. I need to get Drivers such as ATI RADEON HD 2400 XT, my soundcard driver, WEbcam , WIreless internet, Core 2 Duo Processor T7300, and other drivers for my laptop.
I've just bought an Acer Aspire 6930 laptop and I want to re-tweak the whole system again like installing new windows etc etc...so should I care about the drivers? I mean sound driver will be found automaticly and I can download display driver but what about the other drivers like net,webcam, etc etc? where can I find those?
I just bought a acer aspire 4310. I installed windows xp sp2 into it but the program kept saying that it couldn't detect any hard disk. I went back to the store and the storekeeper said 4310 only supports windows vista.
i have an acer aspire 7000 laptop and i got it second hand, it has windows xp installed on it but most of the drivers were mising, i had a list of 12 missing drivers i have now narrowed that down to just 2, i need someone to tell me where i can download the modem device on high definition audio bus and the usb2.0 camera drivers
i just got this notebook listed on the title right? Mostly everything works perfectly.
Except apparently i have to update my Drivers for the Intel(R) GMA Driver for Mobile. So i look at the Intel website no drivers found, or ones that needed updates..
So Ive been told that in some cases for laptops you must go to the computer manufacturers website and find the drivers there, this website being Acer. But it seems there is no trace for Aspire 5735-4624 Drivers ANYWHERE. I think the laptop is fairly new but there has to be SOME drivers somewhere right? I am not sure if this is a problem for any other people out there, or i am just not looking hard enough?
I would like to know where i can get windows XP drivers for Acer Aspire 5930G. I want to dual boot XP with the Vista that came preinstalled.
I have two partitions on factory setup: one for VISTA OS and the other is labelled as DATA. I thought of formatting the second partition and installing XP on it. Is this possible? Would a boot menu be created? Or is there any other sequence in which i should install this.
The Specification is as follows: Intel Core2Duo P8400 2.26 GHz 512 MB nVidia GeForce 9600M GT 4GB DDR2 250 GB HDD and the rest...
I recently reformatted and installed xp on my Aspire 5680-6123, and finding drivers is tough. Ive got most of the things working, except for the Ethernet adapter. The drivers ive tried are the broadcom ones from the acer site, but nothing seems to work. The default drivers xp wants to install do not work either.
Maybe im just doing something wrong, installing the drivers incorrectly.
I recently bought an acer aspire 7535 - 5415. Specifications can be found here:
It came preinstalled with Windows 7 but I formatted it and installed Windows XP for which drivers are available on acer's website.
Now I am having problems finding drivers for the wireless device and ethernet on it. I have tried the various drivers available online including acer's website but none of them seem to work so I think I am doing something wrong. I just run the installer for the drivers but that doesnt make any difference. Currently in device manager, two devices show up with a question mark along them: 1. Ethernet Controller 2. Network Controller
Installing different drivers makes no difference, including the ones posted on acer's website. So I dont know if I am doing something wrong or if the drivers are faulty. Can someone point me to the proper drivers or the proper procedure for installing the network controllers I need.
I'm trying to find the correct drivers for the above laptop. I found this thread How To's: Acer Aspire 5672 , but it seems some of the links no longer work.
This system had XP Home originally and the HDD died. I installed a new HDD and want to install XP Pro, have disk, and do away with all the Acer stuff.
I've already performed a clean install once before of XP Pro, but wasn't able to find the correct drivers for several pieces of hardware. I'm in the USA. Is there even an Acer USA? I can't seem to find the drivers at Acer.
I have my original backup disk that I created using Acer erecovery and an XP pro install disk.
Did a restore with factory restore disks it doesn't install broadcom BCM94312mcg wireless drivers. when i try to install I get "windows found drivers but encountered an error code 10 have tried everything I know
