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'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 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 uninstalled acer empowering technology with the intention of reinstalling it afterwards. it had been laggy and closed spontaneously for a while, so i was going to download it again from acer support.
i got rid of all the components, went to the website, and downloaded it.
after installation completed it said something about WMIAcercheck.exe not working.
i tried to boot it up, and it said exception message: and then it said sorry! not an acer system.
however, my computer is clearly an acer system. it's an acer aspire 5100.
i neeeed acer empowering tech to hook up to the internet, it's extremely slow to do it another way.
how, when you press the "e" empowering technology button the toolbar pops up?
And when you switch on the bluetooth module, the WLAN switch, and even the FN+UpArrow and DownArrow and the little green text at the bottom of the screen comes up? Well, in my system it's not working anymore.
Last thing I remembered that happened was my Norton IS 2009 detected a virus and prompted to restart the system, and so I did, and then things started to go weird. For instance, the touchpad driver needed to be reinstalled, and then I could see that my startup items DRASTICALLY got reduced, looking at the task manager. I tried reinstalling the Empowering Technology Framework, but still it doesn't work. Any of you guys experienced issues like this?
There was a lot of gunk pre-installed on the Acer 6292 portable I bought about 6 months ago (eNet, ePower, ePresentation, eDataSecurity management etc, etc.), running under Vista Business (now with SP1). These make boot up very slow.
It has been suggested elsewhere (specifically in microsoft.public.windows.vista.general News Group) that these are not very useful and could be got rid of. I would like a second opinion before I uninstall these.
Specifically, are these interrelated - e.g. can I uninstall some (e.g. eDataSecurity) without affecting others (e.g. eRecovery) ?
I am a bit cautions about uninstalling as the Acer did not come with a recovery (or Vista) CD, and I would have no way of going back.
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?
My Vista drive will not boot. So I went into the bios and made certain that D2DRecovery setting was enabled but I didn't see if Acer disk-disk recovery was in the bios. I also see in the bios that password enabled but I cannot change it to be unenabled.
As soon as I saw the Acer screen, I hit the ALT-F10 combination and started the recovery process. When it came to a password I did not know it and when I clicked on Hint, it told me that password but no matter how many times I typed it in in either lower case or upper case, it would not accept it. Is there some universal password I could use to restore Vista ?
The screen constantly states password incorrect. Is there such a thing as empowering technology password ?
I bought Acer Aspire 5535. I got Resource dvd with it, and on that dvd are drivers for Windows Xp, Vista 64 and Vista 32.
When I started him for the first time and try Alt + F10 nothing happens, so I decided to format HDD and put XP on it. I changed AHCI in bios (to IDE) and formated the HDD with Windows Xp. Installation of Windows Xp went just fine. It works fine and everything is ok.
I Only thing I don't have on it is EmPowering. I tried to find it on Acer website, but no way
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!
if there's something wrong with my speakers on my newly bought 6920G. They are extremely oddly placed, at least what I think.
One of them is located to the right (below the screen as it should be). However the other one is placed more closed to the middle (below the screen) than to the left as I think it should be. This makes the sound coming from left to sound like coming from the front instead, which can't be right... Should it really be this way?
I should mention that I bought this PC from Acer with like 35-40% discount because it got sent back to Acer for repairs of the speakers actually. Did the assemble the left one incorrectly?
Check this picture. I've marked where the speakers are located with red circles. [url]
I also wonder if here's ANY way to get the Empowering softwares to work in Windows 7 (RC1)? I can get them to START (ePower, eSettings), but they can't be used. I have them running in Vista compatibility mode already.
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.
i have acer 8930g 644g32mn and was wondering if its fully HD. it says 1080playbak 16:9 cinematic or somat. i checked my screeen resolution and its 1680 x 945 so that means its not fully HD?
secondly i upgraded to windows 7 vie acer upgrade kit, not am having problems, when i swith my laptop off it wont shut off properly i see a blue screen for a few seconds and then it suddenly goes off, when i turn it on then i get a message like start windows normaly which appears if u just shut it off via the button. i think mavcafee is causing it, when i did a full scan it quarantined some files after that the laptop is actin a lil funny, this doesnt mean is macafee, i got malwarebytes and that did the same in fact iit messed it up completely than god i could do system recovery lol the laptop wudnt turn on.
and lastly how come acer empowering technology doesnt work any more i downloaded on it just crashes i dont think itrs compatible with win 7,
