Acer :: 6930g Upgrade To X9100

Jun 10, 2009

I may have the opportunity to pick up a cheap X9100, far cheaper than I could get say a T9800 T9900, both of which would be preferable due to 35W.

Acers literature states CPU's up to C2D 6mb are supported, I saw over here Acer 8930 - X9100 CPU update. that a user with an 8930g upgraded to an x9100.

Does anyone know if the laptop power supply etc would handle a 44W cpu, don't want to burn anything out?

Also heat may be a concern? The cooling system on this notebook appears more substantial than the average. Currently with my P9500 after 8 hours of stessing the max temperature is 63c, and thats on a fresh AS5 application without undervolting

I don't 'need' to upgrade to an X9100 but thought if it's cheap enough I might as well!

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 :: 8920 - Blu-Ray Won't Display On TV

May 6, 2009

Laptop is a 8920. It plays blu-ray discs through acer arcade just fine. When you plug in the HDMI cable to the TV it will seem like it's playing then it stops and gives an error message. It will play movies off the hard drive through the HDMI cable to the TV just fine. I downloaded an installed the latest video driver. I have reinstalled vista (alt F10) as well. I sent the laptop back to Acer and they intalled a brand new blu-ray drive.

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 :: How Does The 8930 Differ From The 8920

Oct 7, 2008

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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.

HP/Compaq :: 8GB 800 MHz RAM And X9100 CPU In HDX 16

Feb 24, 2009

I have upgraded my HDX 16 to 8 GB PC2 6400S 800 Mhz RAM and X9100 CPU. I also have Seagate 320 GB 7200 RPM ASG Hard drive.

I was going to try the QX9300 but I was told that QX9300 will not work in a HDX 16.

It looks like the GPU is the bottleneck in this laptop. Im running DOXs 185.20 and when I try to overclock the GPU for anythingh over 574 MHz Core Clock or 535 Mhz Memory Clock, the screen starts freezing.

Let me also say that Im running BIOS F13-A if that has anything to do with it.

I have read some users overclocking up to 660 Mhz Core Clock in HDX 16. How do you do that?

Sony :: Vaio Z Series Upgrade To X9100

Feb 24, 2009

I would like to request your opinion on upgrading my current Sony Vaio VGN-Z590 P9500 2.53ghz processor into a X9100 3.06ghz one. I would like to know if it would still be possible to upgrade my cooling system by just applying a thermal compound on the existing copper wire cooling system. I also plan to add more thermal compound on the cpu and heatsink.

As the title say's,the fastest core duo against the second to slowest choice,as there seem's a fair number of people here who play game's on their M4400's,I thought this might be interesting to some.

Empire total war,I'm sure still carry's out control instruction's much better with the X9100 despite framerates being pretty much identical.....a bit hard to tell as the game AI is soo buggy....

Upgrade Dell Precision M6300 - CPU to  Intel® Core™2 Extreme Processor X9100 (6M Cache, 3.06 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)

I know that you can upgrade to Intel® Core™2 Extreme Processor X9000 (6M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

Acer :: How Do I Know That My New Processor Is Faster

Jun 4, 2009

I installed a T7500 cpu in my Aspire 5315, properties states that it is a T7500 cpu running at 789 MHZ, 2.2 dual cpu processor and 1.99 GB of ram. So far all I have been using my laptop is email and surfing. it seems to take the same time booting up and maybe opening and closing a program a little faster but I wonder is it really faster ?

Are there ways to test this processor to verify that it is faster against known specs for the previous cpu, the Celeron 530 processor ?
