Acer :: Aspire 8930G-644G32MN Or The Aspire 8930G-584G32BN

Mar 26, 2009

Seeing as I pretty much made up my mind and want to buy a Acer Aspire 8930G, I hope somebody here can give me some specific advice. Maybe someone who owns one of the laptops (I hope there aren't any differences, depending on the country you live in)

I am looking at the Acer Aspire 8930G-644G32MN or the ACER Aspire 8930G-584G32BN. The first one is 300 Euro's cheaper than the last one. Besides that big difference I can't seem to find any. Did I miss some specific diffence, like do they both have Surround Sound and a BluRay drive and a full HD screen? Does any of the two support DVB-T? Do they both have a 9600 GT graphics card?

The reason why I ask is because I looked through, I don't know how many internetsites with specs and it's amazing how they all differ, obviously mainly copied and pasted from other internetsites. And I really want to get the right one and not regret my purchase after a while.

Acer :: 8930G Blu Ray

Jun 20, 2009

I've had my Acer Aspire 8930G for about 4 months now, bought it brand new for around £800.

I've never really tried playing Blu Rays on it, infact I've not even watched one all the way through, I've only tested 2 when I first bought the laptop.

I've just tried to watch a brand new genuine blu ray film, but the acer arcade constantly stops working and the blu ray doesn't load up to play the film (it loads the adverts prior to the film but not the actual film) acer arcade asks to check for soultions to the problem but doesn't bring any up when I click get solutions.

If I don't get that error message I get a message along the lines of an unexpected error occured, please reboot your machine.

The blu ray is brand new, scratch free and plays fine on other blu ray players.

on the acer arcade menu I've gone to settings and clicked live update, it says connecting and then a message comes up saying no update is available, so I assume it's upto date although I don't recall updating it three times?

The version I'm using is: 2.1.6010
Audio Decoder: 6channel

Is the the right and latest version for Vista?

Whats the problem? Other blu rays won't play either and they take forever to load up until the point, acer arcade has stopped working pops up?

Acer :: 8930G Windows 7

Sep 2, 2009

I have an acer 8930G with a Q9000 processor, 500gb hd etc. Running visa home premium at the moment (32 bit) and looking to change.

I have created factory restore dvds in case I need to revert anyway.

But I do not want to spend ages installing windows 7 if there are no acer drivers etc for it.

Has anyone who has this laptop installed windows 7 and is it working?

I have been given an official 64 bit version of windows 7 (some guy I know is on some training course or something) but I cant find out info about it.

Obviously I need the dash thing to work for volume control, I use the fingerprint reader a lot too, I also have a tv card with my laptop (Havent managed to find channels yet though!!). Basically I want to see if everything works? IE do the vista drivers work?

Acer :: Aspire 8930G

Feb 26, 2009

Basically, the laptop can't find any wireless networks in range, normally it finds several.

I know the wireless router / internet are fine because if I plug the Ethernet cable into the laptop from the router, the laptop goes online and likewise my old laptop will connect to the internet via wireless straight away.

On my new laptop, I've tried several ways to make it find the router but all it says is it can't find anything. I've clicked diagnosis why it can't find anything and it comes up with wireless is currently OFF and needs turning on by a button normally found on the top or side of the laptop.

I've clicked the button and it's 100% on, yet it keeps telling me it's not. The orange wireless light which normally comes on when it is connected isn't coming on either.

Any ideas? I've restarted the laptop and reset the router but nothing and I haven't changed anything, it just went off last night whilst on MSN and browsing eBay.

It's running Windows Vista and using Intel(R) Wireless Wifi Link 5100.

I've tried everything I can think off but end result is always it can't find any networks.

Acer :: Overclocking An 8930G

Dec 7, 2009

I have an Aspire 8930G which I am very happy with apart from a few minor issues. Music playback can be sometimes jerky, either iTunes or Media Player.

Was also thinking of overclocking it, what utilities and methods have other people used? I'd be really interested.

Acer :: Internet - 8930G

Jul 4, 2009

My notebook is Acer 8930G and my network adapter is an Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 and i used to have as a wired router a Dlink 524T, which i changed with a Netgear DG834 during my many attempts to resolve in vain my internet problems as i did with my ethernet cables.

About a week ago,suddenly my notebook ceased to have any internet connection and my status varied from local only to limited connectivity while both the green and orange lights on the adapter came and went continiously.

After a casual scan with Malwarebytez antispyware,it turned out that i had 9 infections from the trojan BHO,which turned out to origin from Acer itself,as it was part of the recovery hidden partition.This trojan appeared as Partner BHO that ran as an add on to Internet explorer and was part of the Acer-Google toolbar present at IE.

After innumerable efforts and formats,i somehow cleaned(so it seems without being 100% certain) my PC.The only thing is that the problem persists with the connection,while two other computers that share the network with me,didn't and still don't have any problems whatsoever.

My Atheros adapter functions as follows:The green light on the right is stable for a few seconds subsequently dissapears for an instance and then returns while the orange light beeps only at the presense of the green light.My network status vary from Local only to limited connectivity most of the times and sometimes it turns to no connectivity.The device manager indicates that all devices are working properly without any explanatory or question marks underneath any of them

Acer :: 8930G Optimum

Sep 1, 2009

I have an 8930G

It has a q9000 processor and geforce 9600M GT (1gb ram) on it.

Can the graphics card be overclocked?

What tweaks do people do to their laptops that are within safe limits?

I just want to get the best out of it. Currently use 32 bit vista home premium (pre installed), someone has said to use 64 bit version so looks like Ill do that. Someone else is giving me a free legit official copy of windows 7 64 bit, is it better to install that or vista 64?

Can the graphics card actually be replaced with a better one or is that not possible on laptops?

Acer :: Changing Processor- Aspire 5610z

Dec 10, 2007

I have an aspire 5610z and it has the pentium dual core. I was wondering if it is possible to fit a better processor inside, maybe the core 2 duo or something else. Has it even been done with my type of laptop? Im really serious about doing it, but I need this question answered first. Also is there a way for my notebook to accept more than just 2gb of ram?

Acer :: 8930g Restore Disk

Jan 6, 2009

I bought two of these nice big shiny laptops and I as soon as I have started Vista they both want to create restore disks. No prob, I went and bought fresh DVD-R discs!

However, during the process I noticed the time getting longer and longer resulting in over 5hrs to burn a single disc!

I left them overnight as I thought it was a little odd and got the resulting burn error message then all hell broke loose! Both laptops no longer recongised their Blue ray drives! . The only way I could get them to shut down and restart fresh was too pull the power and remove the batteries....

I tried to burn normal files using the same type of discs and they worked fine, so why doesnt the eBackup programme like them?

Their must be a simple solution to this! I can't believe both laptops are faulty with the same issue!

Acer :: What Processors Can Be Installed To An 8930g

May 3, 2010

I have one of the higher end specs of the 8930g but it is struggling with simple stuff. Even FireFox can get CPU to 100%!

I recently bought a hauppauge hd pvr and when I tried to edit video it became very slow!

It has quad core 2ghz processor 6m cache 1066fsb. When I paid £1200 for it I would have thought it would he more than good enough for stuff like this. Would upgrading the processor fix this problem?

If so, is there a list of which processors would be compatible? I have 4gb RAM and 1tb hard drive space...

Acer :: Esata Port On 8930G

Sep 2, 2009

I have recieved an external hard drive in the post today along with a cable to connect.

I connected the cable, turned hard drive on and nothing is happening. The hard drive connects via usb fine but that will be much slower to backup 500GB worth of data. Does anyone know if I need to do anything special to get it to work with esata or should it work straight away?

Not sure if the cable is esata 1 or 2 but it should work with either shouldnt it?

Acer :: 8930G Audio Decoder

Sep 3, 2009

I have installed windows 7 64 bit and I have one problem. Acer arcade deluxe is telling me that my audio decoder is 2 channel and will not let me select 5.1. As a result, blu ray and movies play in 2 channel and they are the left 2 channels too, not very nice to listen to!

The weird thing is, in windows I get sound from all speakers!

Anyone know what I do? Or shall I just go back to vista until October?

Can someone with vista have a look at the arcade, go to settings and then about, it says the decoder there, does yours say 2 channel or 5.1? I am sure I was given the option to select 5.1 when I had vista but I have only had the laptop for a week or so.

Acer :: 8930G Windows 7 And Blu-ray Problems

Sep 6, 2009

I have an acer 8930g and over the last 5 days I have tried windows vista ultimate 64 bit and windows 7 ultimate 64 bit (official copy).

Everything works fine on the factory settings (vista HP 32bit) but on both those operating systems I get problems when watching blu ray disks.

At first I thought it was the disk, then the drive but now I have narrowed it down to either the OS or the drivers.

When I watch a blu ray movie with acer arcade or power dvd, I get a constant screeching sound (sort of like its raining or an old fax machine) and I really do not know what to do.

Has anyone else come across this problem? I have spend the last few days uninstalling operating systems and installing again, doing drivers and all sorts but got nowhere.

It looks like windows 7 does now have any 5.1 drivers for this laptop so I will have to leave that for now, but I really wanted to use a 64 bit OS to make the most of my ram, has anyone got a 64 bit version working ok? If so, where did you get the drivers from or how did you get it working ok? Have you tested watching blu ray movies etc?

Acer :: Hot After Few Hours - Aspire 8930G

Aug 28, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 8930G.

In the last couple of months I've noticed my laptop is getting pretty hot, well actually REALLY . Right now after turning it on for 45min and turning on a game, not a really intense game and I'm not doing anything on it yet, for 10 minutes the temperature reading is already 92 degrees Celsius for the gpu, 23 for the cpu, and 44 for the hdd.

My laptop didn't heat up before only within the last 2 months or so, even though I don't use it that often since I'm mainly on my computer now.
