Acer :: Hot-line And Cool

Feb 8, 2009

I asked Acer hotline over the phone for the service guide to my TravelMate laptop, and a very friendly hot-line-guy told me to get it from retrevo.com or from laptoprepair101.com - both sites, however, have been told (from Acer or ?) not to host the Acer service guides any more.

One or two compagnies still seems to have them for sale, but as I don't have any possibility to buy over the net - and don't find it reasonable, either, to pay for the guide to a computer that was expensive enough when it was bought ...

I can find a lot of reasons for Acer (and other manufact.) not to include the service guides in the box together with new laptops - and I might even be able to find good reasons as well for not making it too easy to get the guides at the internet - as long as the products are still produced or as long they are newer than 2 years - but after that time I cannot find any reason at all why they still want their customers to pay for the service guide at a 3.part compagny.

It's UNREASONABLE and UNFAIR - so next time I buy a laptop I might look for another brand with a little more customer friendly policy.

As a matter of fact it is dangerous not to clean the cooler now and then - not doing it might in the worst case cause a fire, so as long as they don't mount a little 'door' to open for removing dangerous dust-cakes they should at least let the service guides be reachable from their service hot-line.

Acer hot-line has no techniciants and nobody there knew how to clean the cooler but admitted that it's important to do it - uncool, unhot or unacer ...

Acer :: Travelmate 5624 Does Not Cool

Aug 19, 2009

I have problems with the high temperature of my Travelmate 5624WSMI. It is too hot!

However:
- I cannot hear any fan running (I do not know if I should, and I do not remember if I did when it worked properly).

- I read that it might be due to dust. For this reason I tried to clean it (them?) with a can of compressed air but with no success.

- I installed SpeedFun. I read this: GPU 51 C (or more!); HDO 42 C; Temp1 32 C; Temp2 42 C; Core0 46 C; Core1 46 C. As I understand, GPU is burning.

- I tried to open my notebook but without success. I do not how to do it.

Acer :: Line Out Is Broken On My Extensa

Jan 11, 2010

I got an Acer Extensa 5420 a few months ago refurbished and at first everything seemed fine. A month or so later I noticed that the line out had a small crack in the middle of the green ring.. a little annoying but my headphones seemed to work fine so I just ignored it. After using the line out for a few months it's become more and more faulty. Now, when I plug in headphones no sound comes out, it doesn't even recognize anything is plugged in unless I have it turned at the exact right angle. I know the audio jack is just screwed up, but what options do I have to fix this problem?

Acer :: Timeline A New Line Of Notebooks

May 28, 2009

I think Acer just hit a niche market with the Timeline series. No other manufacturer has touched this area before. The first time I saw the specs I knew I wanted one. The price/weight/performance/battery life ratio can not be matched by any notebook on the market. Or am I wrong? What other notebooks are there? Where can I buy a 13.3 inch Acer Timeline in Canada?

Acer :: Aspire One Owners: Faint Line On Outer LCD Casing

Feb 28, 2009

I actually noticed a faint, faint line in the outer glossy covering on the top of the laptop, about half-way in the middle horizontally. It looks like a plastic blemish but looks too perfect, as it's perfectly straight and right in the center.

Again, doesn't bug me, but I'm curious if anyone else noticed this. You gotta see it in the right light!

Dell :: CANNOT Keep My M1730 Cool

Jun 16, 2009

I've had it almost 2 years and im beginning to think the graphics cards are giving up on me

right now it is idle running very few programs, and my temps are (according to HWMonitor)

CPU Core 0 -54-51-63
CPU Core 1 -54-51-62

8700M GT 1 67-67-68
8700M GT 2 -79-79-80

HDD 43-43-44

surely the second GT shouldnt be in the high 70's being idle?!

the top of the XPS (above the keypad just below the screen) is also almost too hot to touch, not long ago I took it apart and gave it a good clean to get rid of the dust but there didnt seem to be much dust at all .....

Dell :: Keeping The XPS 1530 Cool

Oct 13, 2008

I just bought a XPS 1530 and Im looking for a few opinions on keeping it running cool.

1. What fan controller software should I use for the 1530?

2. Is it possible to replace the stock GPU fan with an aftermarket one? If so is there a guide on that.

3. Similar to question #2 is there a guide on replacing the thermal paste on the 1530 with a 8600m GT GPU?

4. Whats the best laptop cooler for the 1530 that lines up to the fans underneath.

Dell :: Fan Running At High, Laptop Cool?

Sep 3, 2009

So I know I made another thread about over heating, but it's not drawing that much attention.

A few days ago my Inspiron 1420 was crashing due to overheating (I've had it for a year and a half).

Dell came out, replaced the motherboard, and things were fine until it started overheating AGAIN a few hours after the techie left. Dell came out the next day with a new hard drive, heatsink and fan.

Dell :: Before/after Temps With Cool Slice For Latitude/precision

Nov 16, 2008

if anyone with the coolslice could report on how effective its passive design is at cooling the notebook?

In particular i would be interested in someone with a precision m4400....

Before and after temps would be helpful, how warm the bas of the cooler is when its attached, or if it feels always cool..also if it manages to keep the fan on "medium" speed most of the time....

Sony :: My Ultra Cool T350p Second Hard Drive Mod

Mar 2, 2009

Ok, so I really needed more hard drive space in my T350p, I am guessing alot of you are in the same boat I am and the machine is great if only it had more hard drive space.

Unfornately pretty much all the large drives are in either Zif or sata, so changing the internal drive was not going to get me much more space.

So, I looked at other options. I did not want to use an external, they are great and I have several of them, but it is just not as conveniant as having a large built in drive.....

Dell :: Quiet And Cool. Thermal Paste Replaced! 38@idle 73@load

Mar 25, 2009

I replaced the thermal paste of the CPU and the GPU with "Coollaboratory liquid pro". And I replaced the thermal pad of the northbridge with "Arctic Silver 5" thermal paste.

Here are my sesults (in a 20 degrees Clesius enviroment, T9600, 2,8GHz, stock voltage):
73 dregrees Celsius at 100% load
(instead of 92)
39 dregrees Celsius at 0% load (fan off)
(instead of 45)

According to my research and different experiments this combination is my actual optimum.
The cooler and more silent system supports my usage of voice recognition (using the internal mic).
Of cause later the voltage could be reduced using rmclock.....

2. Is the BIOS (EFI) locked down so that one must struggle to make adjustments, troubleshoot hardware etc?

3. If so, can it be unlocked?

4. Is it easy to upgrade the RAM, processor and hard drive?

Dell :: XPS 1730 Line (Next?)

Sep 8, 2009

I have been a SUPER happy customer with my M1730. I originally owned an XPS Gen 2 (way back in the day). My question is, are they going to make a new successor to M1730? It's been a while, I've seen DELL come out with the new lower XPS line (13/16). Also now with the Adamo. However, I see no mention of further XPS 17XX. Have they discontinued it?

I know they purchased Alienware, but I just don't like Alienware, it looks a little to geeky for me.

If they took the M1730 and just upgraded the board so we could get the 1333Mhz RAM + G270M Video card + QuadCore (However, I'm pretty happy with my X9000)

Trying to use Dell Financing to get a laptop and had a question.

Dell has 12 months no payment for "Studio Performance" laptops. I cannot find the perrformance line. Is this the same as the regular Studio 15 and 17 line?

They also have 12 months no payments for Sudio XPS and XPS but they are a bit out of my price range.

Dell :: When Will Release CENTRINO 2 Line

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 9200 in Janaury 2005. It has been an excellent laptop since day #1, but an upgrade is now in order!

Can ANYBODY have a clue as to when Dell will release laptops based on the new CENTRINO 2 line? I'd love to buy another Dell, but if they don't plan on upgrading the hardware soon, then I'll have to go to another brand.

Dell :: Refresh Of Studio XPS Line? When?

Mar 21, 2010

Well im currently using the Dell XPS M1330 since 2008 let me say it has been awesome! The only problem has been the battery which has been dead since early February I believe so I have been operating using the adapter.

The dead battery is still in the laptop.

However, now my idle temps are over 75 c and often over 80 c, so im thinking about selling this in fact I will be selling this shortly. Especially given the fact that the warranty ran out in February of this year.

Anyhow, im wondering if the XPS line will be refreshed in 2010 and when can we expect some new XPS models.

I only purchase my computers from Best Buy and currently they really do not have anything which really grabs me

Sony :: Z Line, And P8400 Vs. P8600 With An SSD

May 9, 2009

In looking to pick up a laptop and have it in my hands by late next week, I found that I had to go with the 2.26 GHz processor from the P-series. I was hoping for 2.4 GHz or better.

The reason I was willing to do so was that the notebook is coming equipped with an OCZ Vertex SSD at 120 GB.

My take is that the hard drive is still the bottleneck, so a mere 140 MHz difference in the presence of an SSD isn't going to be felt, and that a 2.4 GHz processor + SSD isn't going to really be snappier compared to a 2.26 GHz one with an SSD for most things.
