Acer :: Aspire Timeline 5810tz Won't Boot, Can't Access Setup Or Bios
I just got an acer aspire timeline 5810tz, which came with vista, so i was in the process of reformatting it to have XP, which i've done several times on my previous laptops. When i changed the bios to IDE, which is what i read was the correct setting (perhaps this is where my problem is?), i found that i could no longer boot the computer or access setup, bios or the boot menu. When i attempt to do any of these things, the computer just sits on the logo screen.
i'm getting fairly desperate at this point, having tried a large variety of solutions, key combos, removing the battery, etc.
Acer :: Aspire 5810T Screen Fading
if anybody knows whats going on, i've got an ACER 5810T, just upgraded to windows 7, and ive noticed that when the laptop is not plugged into the mains, every now and then the screen fades for a few seconds and then comes back. The strange thing is, the screen doesnt fade to darkness, instead it is as if the contrast changes before returning to normal again.
Acer :: Bios Recovery On Timeline Series
i turned my new travelmate 8471 into a brick by flashing it with the wrong bios (shame on me ) - now i am looking for a way to bring it to life again - any suggestions?

Acer :: Timeline 3810T/TG Modified BIOS Fix For Both Graphics Cards Powered On
Modded BIOS 1.27 for Aspire TM 3810.
Version with Intel/Ati/Switchable options in Switchable Graphics menu:
Extended version with additional unlocked options:
Don't forget to change User Access Level to see all options
advan20092 is AWESOME!
Just to explain how awesome this modded BIOS is: It enables a new INTEL-ONLY graphics setting in the BIOS for the TG models. This disables the ATI chip entirely, basically making the Switchable Graphics TG models act like the T models, which "fixes" the bug where both graphics chips are active after a Resume from Standby.
This gives 3810TG owners the promised battery life of 8+ hours. One caveat - it disables the HDMI port. For HDMI you have to use Switchable or ATI-ONLY modes.
Acer :: Aspire 5810TZ - Restore The Computer
I am stuck being tech support for my brother who is living in Torres Vedras, Portugal right now. He is having some problems with a pretty new Acer Aspire 5810TZ that was given to him around Christmas time. The computer had been used for about a month before he received it and had a few programs installed on it along with the usual bloatware. I cleaned up what I could before he left for Portugal again and installed AVG anti-virus, MS Office '07, and Windows 7.
Now that he is back in Portugal he is having problems with the things he uses most on the computer (Built in microphone not working, built in webcam only working randomly for a short amount of time, and DivX failing any time he tries to watch tv or movies online) I've walked him through updating all the drivers and reinstalling DivX, but nothing seems to fix these problems and Windows 7 is starting to look like more trouble than it is worth to him.
Main Question: Is there any way to restore the computer back to the way it was when first purchased (with Vista or 7, whichever will work) without the use of recovery discs (He does not have any with him over seas) in a way that is simple enough for me to relay to him?
Acer :: Aspire 3020 Factory Restore
i am trying to restore laptop with restore cd's that was supplied, the problem is that i can get the alt f10 system to work as it just constantly beeps till i let it go. i have read through threads that talk about a recovery partition but not technically minded so i dont know if this has one or how to find it.
Acer :: Factory Restore - Aspire 5610z Using ERecovery
I was trying to do a Factory Recovery in my Acer Aspire 5610z using eRecovery. Everything was fine until the "Acer Launch" window appeared.
Now it stuck at "Process 1/2","Install eRecovery solution", "Please wait"
There is another window behind it but I am unable to view it, this is going on for more than 2 hrs and I would very much appreciate your help to acomplish this recovery.
the axer lauch window couldn't be moved.
Acer :: Aspire 3680 Hard Drive Crashed; Need Restore CD
My high school-age son was working on an English paper when something fell off a shelf and whacked his Aspire 3680 right above the hard drive bay. It started clicking and finally crashed.
The computer won't run with the hard drive installed. It makes nasty clicking sounds trying to boot, and finally beeps and powers off. Without the hard drive, the laptop powers up and runs BIOS just fine.
We can buy a new hard drive, but it seems awful to pay Acer another $20 + $10 shipping for the Vista restore disk!
Acer :: Aspire 5920G Recovery Disk, D Drive And Restore Points
Im only just burning the factory DVD restore of my system via Acer eRecovery Management. I should have done this a long time ago right when I first recieved my laptop. What ends up on the factory restore DVD?
Another question, my laptop really has noticably slowed down since purchase. I know this is natural...especially as I currently have lots of games installed...only 9GB currently free on C.
This free space varies drastically day to day as restore points seem to automatically be generated by vista. I think this automatically takes place when vista downloads and installs updates. How can I change this? It's annoying as I have a consitently fluctuating amount of free space on C..I frequently delete these points using Tune Up Utilities 2008 which brings me back to the norm.
Also, the D partition seems like a huge waste of space to just leave as it is. There are 103GB free on this partition with only two windows folders existing on there. I have never touched this partition thinking it is there only for disaster situations, like if vista dies and wants to make an image of itself here.
Is this correct or can I move other files onto this partition? Will this increase performance?
Im just trying to increase the speed of my laptop day to day workings. My girfriend was saying that the D partition can maybe be somehow partitioned to speed up the laptop?
Acer :: The Aspire Or The Aspire Timeline
I'm planning on getting either both of these computers, Aspire AS5538-1096 or Aspire Timeline 5810-4784. Everything else is understandable except the part of the processor.
The Aspire as5538 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core Processor L310 1.2GHz, 1 MB L2 cache. While the Aspire Timeline comes with an Intel Pentium Processor DU4199 1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache. I mean, are intel making pentiums with dual core? Can it beat the Athlon 64 x2 1.2 dual core? Even if it costs more with the Aspire Timeline?
Here are links I found with some detailed information about these two products:
Aspire Timeline 5810-4784
My main concern is, dual core, portability, and solid design. In better words, which is the best one?
Acer :: Your Experience With The Aspire Timeline AS1810TZ
I'm thinking of picking up this unit here:
as it seems like it'll do everything I need.
I'm recording voice overs and singing with it and it's specifically meant to be thin and light for travel - with a good enough screen resolution to edit with the machine while I'm on the go. I'd prefer a Windows XP unit (I'm trying to use Cubase LE and I'm not certain it'll work on Windows 7 Pro) but I can get an IT friend of mine to install XP on it if I need to.
My biggest concern with it - is noise. Is the fan really noisy? I know that I can regulate the fan speed etc. with the little apps that have been created for the unit here on this very board, but how long can one leave off the fan without the unit getting incredibly hot? I'm recording with this unit fairly close to a large diaphragm condenser mic, so really - it needs to be as quiet as possible.
Acer :: Aspire Timeline AS3810T-6415
I notice only 2 vendors have this one in stock in the USA right now, one is tigerdirect and the other is J+R and the price is full retail.
Will other vendors be carrying this model in stock? J+R is a local vendor so I may actually buy it from them but I am waiting longer to see if item comes with Windows 7 preinstalled or if price drops.
I notice this model does include a free upgrade to Windows 7 for orders purchased after june 26th and I didn't order yet so it will definitely include it.
Looking good. Way to go Acer for making something nice.
I really wanted an SSD Drive and Wimax. But I guess this is the only model they are doing and I can't wait forever.
Acer :: Aspire Timeline 3810tz Vista To XP Downgrade
I own an Acer Aspire Timeline 3810tz. My laptop did not come with an optical drive and now I'm wondering how I might go about downgrading it from Vista to Windows XP? I have already purchased a USB Cd-Rom drive and skimmed through some nLite articles, but I'm still getting the blue screen 0x0000007B error. I'm guessing it has to do something with the SATA/AHCI driver but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
*During my XP install I changed the SATA Mode from AHCI to IDE
*I think I might be using the wrong driver, but I'm not entirely sure.
Acer :: Modifying Aspire Timeline ShortCut Keys
The follow is the Registry Entry for Acer Aspire Timeline.
I already modified this key to point to Windows Media Player.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"Label"="Windows Media Player"
"Description"=""Windows Media Player"
"Show OSD Only for Legacy"="0"
If you want it to point to other programs, simply
1. copy and paste onto notepad
2. Change "wmplayer.exe" to something else the reason I don't use the full path is because wmplayer is in C:Windows and the shortcut can automatically find anything in C:Windows.
3. If the program is in Program Files you have to use the full path eg."C:Program FilesXXXXXX.exe"
4. Change the Label and description (although it doesn't work as in display the word Windows Media Player when you click it)
5. Save as backup.reg
6. Double Click then Confirm and you are done.
7.There are other keys however I don't recommend modifying them as they are pretty useful like battery saver mode and Wireless Shortcut.
8.To Locate other shortcut keys find the executable path and trace it to the specific keys.
9.LManager (LaunchManager) always hold the key data.
Acer :: Aspire Timeline 4810t-8480 With Windows 7 RTM
I recently wiped out my Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit partition and installed Windows 7 Professional RTM 64-bit on it. I see the performance of booting up increased (using a SSD), programs opened faster (SSD), and shut down is a bit more faster also. The thing I'm concern about is the battery life. It seems to get shorter battery life.. the meter says 5 hours 31 minute on a 98% battery when windows vista says around 8 hours on that percentage. Both were idling. Is that normal that Windows 7 uses more battery or what?
Acer :: Aspire® 4810 Timeline Vs. Lenovo T410s
First of all I will admit that I have never used an Acer before (I am a Lenovo/IBM person) and I don't get how this whole brand works. I hope you will be able to help me out. So my notebook is Lenovo 410s and i am very happy with it; now I am helping to buy a notebook for my friend who has similar needs as I and I would recommend her Lenovo again, but hey I just stumbled across Acer and found it interesting. So I'd like to ask a few questions in the hope you will help:
1. Who are the best sellers in the US of Acer computers? It seems to me that Acer, unlike Lenovo, is being sold everywhere and I can't make sense of this mess - i.e. who to buy from.
2. Would be e.g. an Acer 4810 Timeline (or suggest any other type) be able to meet the following:
a) need a quite computer (noise of any kind is especially annoying)
b) need a light computer (carry it everyday ..anything around 4lb should do)
c) need more of a business model: don't do any gaming, only office, web surfing and an occasional video watching
d) need a solid and sturdy build
e) need an integrated webcamp, SD card reader
Now I have to say that Lenovo 410s meets basically all the wishes I've had for a laptop: it's very light (3.8lbs), very fast, fantastic build. The only two issues that I don't like about it: the quality of the screen is subpar and it does get noisy - by that I mean fan activity. But overall i have not seen a more impressive computer than this.
Thus would Acer be able to beat this? What about screen quality? Heat issues? How bad are the speakers? etc. Btw. does Acer offer Solid State Drives with their units?
In sum, can anybody suggest a model that would equal the performance and specifications of Lenovo 410s and make a persuasive argument why to go with Acer and where to possibly buy it? (of course Acer being cheaper is one such argument).

Acer :: Aspire Timeline And Optical Drive Power Management
Has anyone noticed that Optical Drive Power Management occassionally stop working, i.e., pressing the eject button on your laptop, Windows does not detect your optical drive? Does anyone know how to get Windows to detect the drive, short of restarting?
(my OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64. I am using Optical Drive Power Management for Windows Vista Home Premium 64 - I just installed the program in compatibility mode. Before anyone suggests this is the cause of the problem, I was experiencing this same problem in Vista Home Premium 64 and was hopeful that Windows 7 would fix it...)
Acer :: Aspire 1410 (11.6) Keyboard Identical To Timeline 1810
my spacebar snapped off after moderate use on a one month old Acer. Tech support is willing to receive and fix it, but I need to be using this laptop and cannot be laptop-less for 16 days.
So I wanted to buy my own keyboard and was looking at this:
Now the page up and down keys are in 2 lines instead of 1 and these keys look bigger, but is the dimension of the keyboard identical to 1410 before I buy it?
The other one I saw on these forums is here:
From the timeline Thread from pookguy
The 2nd keyboard looks identical but the auction doesn't mention 1410.
HP/Compaq :: DV9700 Bios Restore
There was an update for F.58 bios on hp's driver site. It was F.59.A
Well I used the win flash utility and the program verified my bios and went with the update. All good until the pc shut off. The quick lauch row of buttons along with the power button were on, the fan going full speed and the little light next to the caps lock button was flashing on and off. I gave it about 5 min and noticed nothing was progressing. So I tried holding down the power button to force it off and all it did was reset the lights and came right back on. I couldn't even get it to shut down without removing the battery.
So I tried the suggestion of pulling the battery out, holding the power button down for 30 sec and plug everything back it....nope. soon as I put the battery in it automatically turns the pc on, don't even have to push the start button.
I'm guessing this had something to do with a bad bios update and if so is there another way to get it back to default bios. I talked to HP chat.....what a nightmare....and it took me 30 min to tell who ever that i couldnt shut down the pc or get into setup when the guy kept repeating "Once you see hp logo hit F10...." um ....I can't get to that rtard that's what i've been telling you as you read you card in front of you. Then told me it would be 400 bucks to have it picked up and fixed...ya right for a bad update caused by hp in the first place.
Acer :: Brandnew Aspire Timeline 1810TZ G3-Switch Not Working After Formating
My girlfriend gave me a brandnew Aspire Timeline 1810TZ with build in G3 (UMTS) for Christmas. When i played around with the preinstalled system (Windows 7 Home Premium x64), I could use the hardware switch in the front of the chassis to enable/ disable the build-in G3-Module.
But as you know, the preinstalled OS are normally very slow, so i formatted the System and installed Windows 7 Professional x64. After installation of all drivers from the Acer website, the switch for enabling the G3 didn't worked anymore! I reformated again with Windows 7 Home Premium x64, but there was the same Picture: No, response from the G3-Switch.
The funny thing is: G3 and WLAN share the same physical hardware switch (you have to flip it to the left to enable/disable G3, and to enable/ disable WLAN you have to flip it to the right).
Flipping the switch to the right activated WLAN without any problem!
I have no idea how to fix this (tried every driver i could find).
Acer :: Timeline Keyboard NOT Working In BIOS, Working In The OS
I have a timeline 4810T which has worked lovely since September, but now I have a weird problem with it: The keyboard won't work until the operating system is loaded. I can't access the bios (press the F2 key but nothing happens), neither select my OS on the Grub menu as the arrow keys doesn't work, all I can do is wait for the 10 seconds timer, then Ubuntu launches, then I can login without problems and all the keys work perfectly.
To give more details, maybe some keys do actually work before the os boot, because when I'm on the grub menu, some keys manage to stop the timer, but unfortunately I can't change the OS or accept the selection, then I have to reboot and wait for the timer to go back to 0 for itself and ubuntu loads.
I'm running the newest BIOS, updated some days ago but didn't had the problem since today.
Acer :: 5810t High Power Consumption
I recently bought a 5810 and Im having a far lower battery time then I expected. Even when running everything at maximum power saving in W7 I get no more then 3-3.5 hours or so. This is a huge bummer for me as it was the main reason I bought the laptop.
Acer :: 5810T Screen Brightness At 100% After Reboot
I set the power options to 50% brightness then click save changes and reboot, the display stays at 50% until about 30 seconds after i see the desktop and then the brightness goes to 100%
I have the brightness in the INTEL graphic properties, colour correction and brightness is set to -60 as low as it will go, and it says like that after reboot but the brightness still goes to 100%
Windows mobility center brightness does not fix the brightness either.

Acer :: Bad BIOS Flash On Aspire 5315
Second time this has happened. I've downloaded the BIOS update from Acer's website.
Closed all programs, disabled the antivirus and went to flash it. Right after clicking start I get a Verify Error and the sytem freezes and is a dead unit. First time this happened they tried to tell me it was something like $150 to fix even though I did everything right. Now I went to do it again, same thing. Now Acer is telling me it will cost $450 to fix it. It's only 3 months old. They are also saying they are not responsible for anything downloaded from their web site.
So, couple questions. Has anyone successfully flashed their BIOS to 1.34? Does anyone know where you can buy motherboards cheap?

Acer :: Downgrading Bios For Aspire 5738G
