i've recently bought an acer aspire 5739G and i've noticed that the notebook also boots up when i press the arcade deluxe key. After the boot screen with the acer logo i just get a blinking cursor in the top left corner of the screen.
I even tried booting like this with an audio CD or DVD inside, thinking it's some sort of multimedia mode, but with no luck.
i have a problem with my acer 6920G. From time to time when i put my computer on I get this windows xp (while i'm running vista) loading screen and Acer Arcade Deluxe gets booted. (Even though i uninstalled it?) So i'd like to know if there is any solution for this problem.
I'm just wondering if AAD comes with the Cyberlink H.264 codec - the one that enables GPU decoding. Because if it does, I have a reason to install that thing back on my system.
Here's how you can check. Open up Windows Media Player. Right-click on the top bar, go to Help, then About Windows Media Player. Click the Technical Support Information link in that box, and your Internet browser will open with an HTML file with all your codecs. Save a copy of that HTML, upload it somewhere like RapidShare/MegaUpload, and post the link here.
I'll report back with my findings - if it means we don't need to buy CoreAVC or another decoder, I'm all for it.
i am looking to download the latest version of acer arcade deluxe (2.0.5814) for my 8920 i have version 2.0.5343. does anyone know where to download it because when i try and update through the program it keeps saying download fail tried calling acer they didnt even know about the problem until i addressed it.
i know about that one website going around but that doesnt have the latest version
I downloaded the latest updates for Acer Arcade Deluxe a couple of days ago, using the Live Update feature within the program, and noticed today that McAfee has quarantined two files related to this program.
The files are both located in c:program filesacer arcade deluxeplaymovievideofilter. The first is BCMDFILTER.DLL, this is detected as Artemis!2309D0D4349A (Trojan) and the other is CLDABCD.DLL, detected as Artemis!202C3E6FA905 (Trojan).
Can anyone advise on these files please? Are they trojans or are they legitimate? I have forwarded the files to McAfee and have no idea whether to allow these files or not.
I'm playing a film through the arcade deluxe on an Acer Aspire 8942g i7 running windows 7 home premium, and the music sounds excellent, however the speech is exceptionally quiet, is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing to get the sound how it should be?
i turn on my computer again and it goes to acer arcade instanton. i exit it and then when vista boots up it tells me to chkdsk. im suspicious but i skip it... when i login it tells me that my user profile is messed and thata bunch of stuff is corrupt. i then do chkdsk and luckily it manages to repair it and i still have my files. however all of my settings and user accounts are gone... also a lot of things dont feel right.
i think after backing up i might do a reinstall. just to confirm, if i use the recovery dvd, D:/ will not be touched right? (D:/ is where my files will be saved)
I have seen closed threads on this subject on this forum, but not found a "this worked" conclusion. However, I'm hoping that someone may know the answer, so here I go.
An accidental press (a cable fell on it) of the Acer Arcade button when the machine was turned off caused it to start up and install Acer Arcade (couldn't stop it installing) which appears to load in a cut down Windows XP shell in a separate partition and should, I'm told, switch back to the main VISTA environment on shutting down - but it doesn't! The machine just goes into hibernation mode!
I have searched the "net", spent a long time on the phone with a Technician, and basically nothing has worked - can get into the BIOS and have turned off D2D which was enabled, can't get to Windows Safe Mode, or VISTA. I can get into various forms of recovery options, but they can't find the operating system, etc etc!
I'm facing full recovery and losing everything that hasn't been backed up and spending ages reinstalling everything, which I don't want to have to do if I can help it! Also, I could go through this whole process and still risk the same thing happening again in the future, which is really frightening! So if I have to do that does anybody know of any way I could disable this awful button afterwards - this is supposed to be a working laptop, not a games and video toy!
I recently bought the laptop in my sig. I could have paid an extra £100 for a Blu-Ray drive and 500GB HDD, but I chose not to. I don't necessarily regret this, but I'll probably want to upgrade to a Blu-Ray drive at some point.
Does anyone know what Blu-Ray drive comes with this laptop? Or if any other Blu-Ray drives work? I'm not interested in recording, just standard playback.
I've installed a second hd in my 8935g for an xp install, and got a couple of q's before I get stuck in.
1. is there way to install windows XP as a "genuine" acer oem install "like the "genuine win 7 install procedure"?
2. And is there info on ways to recreate the "acer arcade" button usage to boot win 7 and a full xp from the new disc depending on wether I press power button or media button.?
I've done some searching and found some good info, especially re ACHI slipstreaming, but haven't found anyone using the arcade button for an alternative boot method (other than to force different video card in win 7)
I have an Acer Aspire 6930 and it has the easy launch button for the Arcade Utility. I can not get it to launch and I do not see it in the programs. How can I tell if I have the Arcade Utility or not even though the button is there? The WLAN and internet buttons work but not the bluetooth or arcade ones. I'v not found any answers on the web.
just bought a computer: Acer Aspire 5739G wireless card: intel wifi link 5100 -all drivers up to date
when i started to connect my wireless network 9 feet away(it has full connection) it said could't connect to network. Then i desided to try right beside the router and it worked. then when i walked from the router(5 feet) the connection sais limited connection. 8 feet no connection the same happened when i tryed to do it at my friend.
I updated it to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using the disk Acer sent me about a month ago, but never checked to see if any games work until today. Stupid, I know. I put in the CD, the game starts to load up and then it goes to a black screen. It always did this when I had Vista too, but it usually came back on and the game was loaded up. Its stuck there then and I'm forced to hold down the power button and restart the computer.
I updated the driver for the Nvidia GeForce GT 130M to its latest (mainly because I have no clue what to do and thought to myself "yeah, that sounds like something that might be wrong with it"), but no change.
I've recently purchased the Aspire 5739G off Newegg and would like to install XP on the machine. Fortunately, there are official XP drivers for this model on the Acer support website. I've downgraded before and know the procedure of slipstreaming the SATA drivers. Which drivers do I slipstream for this model? I noticed on the drivers page there is a SATA AHCI Driver. Is this the driver to slipstream?
I just recently bought a Acer Aspire 5739G and installed Windows 7 64 bit. All the bells and whistles are working except the fingerprint reader and the bluetooth.
I've tried a multitude of drivers from the manufacturers website and the acer driver website but to no avail.
Any attempt to install the bluetooth drivers asks for the device to be plugged in or turned on and pressing the BT button only displays the "bluetooth disabled" image on the screen. I can't see any bluetooth device installed in the device manager but there are a bunch of HID-compliant devices under the Human Interface Devices tab.
Installed the Windows 7 x64 Acer Bio Protection all goes fine until the System Wizard where it tells me that it can't detect the fingerprint scanner even tho I can see it installed in the device manager. It's installed as "TouchStrip Fingerprint Sensor" under Biometrics.
Was using the Acer Arcade and was informed about the latest patch by the Live Update.
I ran the install patch and during install the McAfee informed me that two of the files were trojams and had to be removed. The files were CL26934.RRA and CLDO7416.RRA, so now when I stick my blu-ray into the drive I get an unexpected error from the Acer Arcade and it won't run.
So where did the files go, and why would ACER put out a patch that conflicts with the pre-installed anti-virus?
is there any way to control the fan speed of this lap top?
I have tried speedfan, rivatuner, even tried the undervolting option with RMClock (no success - the CPU was running at the lowest voltage already).
One option did present some signs of activity - Acer Asprie One (!) Fan Control utility. However, it only switched off the fan completely. Besides that, it was quite unstable and sometimes forgot to turn the fan back on after the threshold of temperature was crossed again.
By the way: computer doesn't get hot at all. The feel is quite cool, as Speedfan utility indicates these temperatures:
The Aspire 5739G I purchased from Newegg in July has been randomly crashing on me.
Windows completely freezes without BSOD, I can't move my mouse, the sound skips repeatedly, and the keyboard is unresponsive (num lock won't turn on) which forces me to manually shut down with the power button. The screen flashes a bit before the crash happens.
I first experienced these problems after I installed Windows 7, but I reset to factory defaults w/Vista and the problem still remains. After two fresh installs of Win7 and one of Vista I am stumped. I also ran the Western Digital HDD, memory diagnostic tool, and mem86 and they all didn't find any problems with my hardware.
The crashes have occurred in Excel, playing flash movies, games, but mostly in playing videos. However the crash is completely random. I have tried both media player classic and VLC with different movies and windows has crashed with both. Not to mention that the same video that crashed my computer, I can play again with no problems or it will crash again at a different spot so it's not a corrupt file. Also I've tried both official and unofficial video card drivers and that didn't work. Event Viewer also doesn't tell me crap.
My laptop is still under warranty but I'm afraid Acer won't take it back or do anything if the problem isn't obvious. I once sent this laptop in for a noisy fan (loud buzzing noises) but they sent it back without repair since they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Even though the fan is noisy, speedfan says that temperature is kept cool and I'm also using a laptop cooler.
When I'm listening to music, my speakers tend to crackle every once in a while. Even with headphones, I get the same problem if not worse. I've searched around and it seems to be a driver issue but I've updated to the the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers and it still crackles. I'm just wondering if people with the same laptop have similar issues while listening to music or my laptop is faulty.
My Asprie 5739 appears to have gone into sleep mode. Â When I push the power button the power charge LED below the touch pad blinks, but it does not boot, even when I hold it for a long period of time. Â Â I removed the battery and power, then plugged it back in, tried holding down the power button with the same result. Â Left it unplugged for a day, same result. Â Have tried to hold the power button + FN F4, still not response.
I have a big issue with my Acer Aspire 5739G laptop that I recently purchased through Ebay. Actually, I bought it from Newegg dba Fred's Fresh Deals. (Newegg sells their returned items and cosmetically damaged goods under this name on Ebay). The laptop was advertised as a possible hard drive issue (it couldn't load windows and the error code looked like a boot sector virus, so I purchased it thinking a simple reformat will fix it).

After I did a fresh reformat of the hard drive and a fresh install of Windows 7, the laptop freezes/locks up after 10-30mins on the desktop. I cannot move the mouse or anything, so I have to do a hard reboot. I don't understand how it is happening.
I updated the mobo's Phoenix driver to the latest one, and tried older VGA Nvidia drivers because I thought it might be a video card driver issue; It is still locking up. I went as far as to purchase a brand new laptop hard drive and the problem still arises. There is no BSOD. As noted earlier, the computer just simply freezes. I cleared CMOS....240M GT VGA is running factory settings....I tried leaving only 1 ram stick in the laptop. I never ran through a problem like this before.
I ran it on Safe Mode and the computer seems to be working fine as long as I do simple tasks or remain idle. I did the SFC /SCANNOW in safe mode and it locks up. I attached my event view file to this email. (I tried to install RivaTuner to underclock factory settings, but the program could not load).
