Acer :: Aspire 8920 Startup

Nov 11, 2008

Computer goes to "startup repair".
"Windows cannot repair automatically"
"No System restore points have been created"!
If I use my recovery dvd's all data and apps will be lost.

Recovery-cds.com sells a "boot Disk" that will allow me to retrieve all data etc before reinstalling Vista to original install.......

Acer :: Aspire 8920

Oct 5, 2008

I am fairly certain I will be getting the Acer Aspire 8920 once I can sell my old laptop (14") for a fairly decent price.

But I am struggling of which version of 8920 I should get. Two caught my attention though...

1) Price: $1649: 2.5GHz CPU; 4 GB memory; 320GB; Nvidia 9500M GS

2) Price: $1170: 2.0GHz CPU; 4 GB memory; 320GB; Radeon HD 3650

As far as I am concerned; the two graphic cards are not hugely different in performance. Is that $480 difference solely for CPU worth it?

I am not a huge gamer, but I do play some games occasionally and don't mind being blown away by the photo-realistic graphics in the future.

So the thing is, with the 2.5GHz, I may be able to swap with a much better graphics card and able able to play games with awesome graphic a few years down the road; whereas, with only 2.0GHz CPU, you can't really do much.

Acer :: Aspire 8920 - Low Fps

Jul 30, 2009

I have a Aspire 8920 and I run World of Warcraft and I had terrible problems with low fps, when I check my cpu monitor thing in windows side bar when the low fps happens I see that its maxed at 100% so I had sent my machine back to Acer to be repaired and they have aparently replaced the graphix card.

I have the machine back now and Im still having major issues trying to run WoW, the only way I get a steadyish frame rate is if I have to have all settings down to min which obviously makes the game play a little naff. With any increase in setting raiding is an inpossibility, its just unplayable.

Is this machine of capable spec to be able to run it effienciently or should I get a big hammer and smash it to bits? or is there more of a underlying problem that acer may not of picked up on at the time? or is there something that I can do to enhance it performance.

My partner plays SIMS3 and even with that installed on here its really jumpy.

Acer :: Virtualization / Hyper-V On The Aspire 8920

Sep 17, 2008

I bought the Aspire 8920 from Best Buy here in Canada. You can view the specs of my configuration of the 8920 here.

I absolutely LOVE the laptop. I love high resolution; I love the Blu-ray drive; I love the 4Gigs of Ram; I love the 2 hard drives which give me almost 3/4 of a terabyte. Acer even sent me an additional power adapter and additional battery for FREE (I think the agent I was talking to was just having a good day). Everything about this laptop is awesome! Except one thing...

My configuration comes with the T5750 processor. It turns out that the T5750 doesn't support Intel Virtualization Technology. I've been intending on installing Windows Server 2008 as my primary OS so that I can use Hyper-V (I've heard great things about it, but I haven't really touched it too much yet), but I just found out that you MUST have a processor that either has Intel VT or AMD-V or else Hyper-V will not work. Currently I use VMWare Workstation for my VMs but I can't have any 64-bit guest OSs because of the same problem... my processor doesn't have VT. Don't ask me why I didn't research all this stuff BEFORE buying my new laptop... I'm still kicking myself for that.

So... onto my question(s). There are some configurations of the 8920 that have processors that support Intel VT (ie. T7500, T9500, etc.). I want to, again, upgrade to a machine that has a processor that I need... but I love the Aspire 8920 too much so I think I'm just going to get one of those higher configurations. However, there is a little problem. Intel VT comes turned off by default. The only way for it to be turned on is in the BIOS. I've read in several forums that a few manufacturers are either forgetting to add this BIOS setting or just not doing it at all.

Question 1) To anyone reading this who has an Aspire 8920 with a processor that supports Intel VT (Find out if your processor has VT support):
a) What processor do you have?
b) Do you know what configuration of the Aspire 8920 you have (ie. 8920-6671)?
c) Can you confirm if there is a "Virtualization" or "VT" setting in the BIOS?

Question 2) To anyone reading this that does a lot of virtualizing on their Aspire 8920:
a) What virtualization software are you using?
b) What guest OSs are you running and what are you using them for?
c) Do the VMs run well for you?

Question 3) Since were somewhat on the topic, is there anyone that has some experience with Hyper-V and virtualization under Windows Server 2008; and if so, what are you personal opinions on it compared to other virtualization solutions out there?

Acer :: 9500M GS Aspire 8920/6920 Games Minimizing On Start

Nov 11, 2008

I have a curious issue that has begun to pop up, I believe after I installed a few drivers from laptopvideo2go. Long story short I tried to reset back to the old Acer drivers and I spent a few hours trying to get my video to turn back on.

But here's the actual problem - some games will randomly minimize on startup and then not allow me to switch to them.

I first noticed this with Frets on Fire, where I would boot it up, it would look like it would work and then stay minimized for a while. Click on it in the taskbar and it would either pretend to go to the game or just sit there, moving my mouse to the top left corner. Alt-Tab, similar, sometimes works sometimes doesn't. If I do Switch To in task manager, it works a bit more often but sometimes takes a few times.

I've now noticed this with COD4, Fallout 3, and Trackmania Nations. Fallout 3 causes the game to crash. I've tried stopping as many open programs/processes as possible and it sometimes fixes it, sometimes doesn't.

If it isn't clear, I have an Acer Aspire 8920G with a 9500M GS. I'm currently using the relatively stock 7.15.1(1.7561) drivers.

Acer :: Aspire One ZG5 Shuts Off At Startup

Oct 5, 2009

Quick background:
My dad just returned from Afghanistan and is home for a few weeks before he heads back (by home I mean with my mother - i.e. I am not with them so I cannot get my hands on the computer).

He's been using his netbook (Acer Aspire One ZG5) while over there and brought it back with him. It's been working perfectly fine for the last 6 months while he was there, but today when he tried to turn it on to show some pictures to my mom it wouldn't.

The computer would start up fine and begin loading windows. Then it just dies - it just shuts itself off.

The next time, the computer gave them the option to turn it on in safe mode which they tried. Same problem.

They've tried several times and it won't start - it also fails at different times.

Sometimes it almost fully loads windows and other times it shuts off a lot sooner.

I made him open the BIOS which worked fine... for a few seconds and then randomly shut itself off again.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Resolution Changes At Startup

Aug 3, 2009

Very often, when my 5920G boots, it changes from the native 1280x800 resolution to 1024x768. Because of that, the icons mess up and I have to change the resolution and then put the icons back at their place.

There is roughly 75% chance this will happen when my laptop boots.

Adding this with my other problems makes using this 5920G a frustrating experience!

This started happening months ago, when I reformated the laptop the problem had gone, and now it reappeared.

Acer :: Aspire 6930 Vista Wont Startup

Mar 21, 2009

At bootup I will get a black screen after the windows loading bar (at the bottom). It will stay a black screen as long as I reboot. I need to press the power button pressed down until it reboots then I do a Regular Windows Start. I've done the safe start so it can look for disk errors too. But I still get this black screen about 60% of every boot times.

What is the problem? Vista? or other?

Acer :: 8920/30 And Upgrades

Sep 19, 2008

I've been searching around, but haven't found much info on upgrading some components of the 8920...I'll have to admit that my search skills are not top notch...

I'm leaning towards the 8920-6030 model, but there's a few things I'd like changed.

Can the CPU be upgraded? I'm thinking about slapping a T9x00 in there. Maybe a T9500 instead of the T8100. I know the CPU here isn't much of a bottleneck, but I'm a nut.

Can the GPU be upgraded? I looked at the manual that was posted here on the forum, and it showed a "GPU Socket". Does that mean I can pull out the 9500M and stick something like a 8800M GTX in it's place?

Acer Aspire V3 471G :: Advanced Startup Option Missing

Mar 1, 2015

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. I don't know if it's because I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 but I used that previously when I need to go to safe mode. Suddenly it disappeared. I can only pick two options, "Continue to Windows 8.1" and "Turn off the PC".

Acer Aspire 7740G :: Beeping On Startup And Freezing Randomly?

Sep 19, 2014

My Acer 7740G has been acting strange lately, it makes a beeping noise of approximately 45 beeps (not exactly sure, because as they are quite quick) when it is restarted. When it is turned off and on everything is fine, the beeping is only when it is being restarted.
 
Also it freezes randomly no matter what games/programs/apps are running. For example it freezes while playing heavy game, and also while playing Minesweeper with nothing else running in the background. I had to reinstall Windows several times, but the freezing keeps occuring without bsod. Also when restart is needed during installation it beeps like that every time on startup.

How does the Acer 8930 differ from the 8920 - and in particular, from the 8920-6746? I was just about to order the Acer AS8920-6746 from Newegg - and then I saw a reference to the 8930, which appears to be a newer model.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 ... Lots Of Beeps On Startup And NTLDR Missing

Dec 21, 2008

My fathers notebook has been acting up for awhile. It beeps continuously at startup.

You would have to "F2" to the BIOS then exit the BIOS, then start up screen to come up again, beeps again repeat "F2" back to BIOS, but eventually XP would load. Unfortunately everything was sluggish, keyboard wouldnt work right. So in my limited computer knowledge I decided to reformat the notebook. I could not find any back up disk that came with the notebook so I created a back up disk from factory settings via the Acer eRecovery Management process. I have ran this recovery disk twice. Both times I have installed the recovery disk I get NTLDR missing as well as the beeps have not gone away. From some online research beeps mean computer is telling us something is wrong with the hardware. Number of beeps tells what specifically; unfortunately I cant find what continuous beeping means. NTLDR missing I found usually means that the computer is looking in the wrong place for the file.

I have no idea what I should do next to resolve the problem. Should I go out and buy an OME copy of XP Pro. Will friends XP Pro disks work as long as I use the XP Key found on the bottom of my laptop? How can i figure what hardware is causing the notebook to beep?

Ideally what I would like to achieve is a clean install with the most limited amount of Acer bloat ware installed. I am trying to find a list of what programs are needed and what programs are bloatware.

Acer :: Discovered 8920 Fingerprint Reader

Sep 19, 2008

I've found what's wrong with the fingerprint reader on the 8920/6920 after a vista reinstall, but I don't know how to change/fix it.

Basically it's upside down -
If you swipe fingers as normal, you have the issue of multiple swipes to login, cannot register fingers and constant misread/misswipe indicators.

If you swipe your finger towards the screen (ie backwards) or push it up the reader towards the screen, it works perfectly. 3 swipes to register again and log in first time every time.

I tested this over the last week and with the fiingernav test, and this shows the same - up goes scrolls down and down scrolls up.

Short of completely dismantling the machine and turning the module around I can't see how to fix it.

Acer Aspire 5552G :: Power Light But Only A Black Screen On Startup (boot Sector On HD)

Dec 5, 2014

I had exactly the same problem with my Acer Aspire 5552G with win7, I tried all things that was online e.g. New battery, Flashing bios, Fn + esc without battery when trying to start the computer and so on.
 
It started now and then and worked perfect but when I shut it down again it could take me up to 50 tries to get it started.
 
The problem was issues with the boot sector on the hard drive!
 
Finally I made an Win7 repair disc and started from.
 
I also checked for errors on the hard drive and it repaired some sectors before starting windows.
 
After that it works like when it was new. The computer was bought January 2011.
