Acer :: Recovery Partition Showing 100% Free Disc Space?

Sep 12, 2009

I have just upgraded from Windows 7 RTC Ultimate to Windows 7 RTM pro.

The weird things is, that there are two hidden partitions:

There are two hidden partitions and they have both 100% free disc space. I know one of them is the recovery from Acer, but it says nothing of the disc space is used !

Luckily, I have a recovery CD.

Another weird thing is in Auslogic Disc Defrag:

There are a removal drive and it's leading to the Windows folder on the C: drive O_O?

HP OS/Software :: DV7-6052ea - Device Manager Showing Wrong CPU?

Jan 14, 2015

I noticed today that Device manager lists a different CPU to the one in my laptop in the 'System devices' section.
 
My laptop is a HP DV7-6052ea with I7-2630QM (Socket 988b)
 
Device manager shows the correct details under 'Processor', listing the I7-2630QM (8 times).
 
Under 'System devices' it has this line: Xeon E3-1200/2nd Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) Processor Family PCI Express Root Port - 0101
 
I can't see any details for the 2630QM in the 'System devices' section.
 
Device manager says all drivers are up to date;
I7-2630QM - 6.1.7600.16385          21/06/2006
Xeon E3-1200 - 9.2.0.1026               10/03/2011
 
CPU-Z correctly lists the I-7 2630QM and I haven't noticed any problems with my system (apart from some songs skipping a bit) so is this something that is likely to cause problems or OK?

Mar 10, 2013

I have a dell inspiron N5050 core i5, 8GB RAM but when I run applications like GNS3, the cpu usage runs up to 100% and freezes whereas the RAM usage is only about 2.7GB (that is, about 33%). How can I get the RAM to function optimally?

I even had to upgrade to Windows 8 thinking it would solve the problem but here I am stuck with the same problem.

Acer :: Installed Win 7 Pro Wrong On My 1810TZ

Jan 3, 2010

I have an 1810TZ and then I bought an 1810T. (Long Story)

My problem is with the TZ:
I made an Image of the system, as suggested, then I "Upgraded" the Win 7 Home system to Pro.
But I screwed up by installing the 32bit version instead of the 64bit.

The only way it would let me come back to the 64bit version of Pro was to do a "Clean install".

Heres my problem:
1) Now the PC takes a Loooong Time to boot.

2) The PC has a 320Gb HDD but shows only 185Gb of "Total space" on C: .

The T with the same HDD, shows 285Gb total space.

Wow... Win 7 Pro takes 35GB of disk space? Did I do something wrong here too?

3) Now there is a hidden "System" D: drive using 100Mb, that was not there before.

I don't know how to get rid of the D: drive. It won't let me delete it or access it.

Something is weird here. I did not install any applications yet.

The PC does not recognize the "Image Disks" I made.

I started to re-install Win 7 Pro but I didn't think that would get rid of the D: drive or fix the problem, so I didn't do it.

I think I need to re-format the HDD. But I'm not sure how to do it right and don't want to make things worse.

This is not the DOS 3.1 machine I used to have.

On the other hand:
When I got the 1810T I did a Clean install of WIN 7 Pro 64bit before I did anything else. There are no problems with the "T".

I ordered a Factory System Disk for the "TZ" from Acer and it should be here in a couple of days. I ordered it before I found this forum.

Acer :: Aspire 7535: Anyone Know About The Wrong CPU Being Put Into The Box

Dec 27, 2009

I recently ordered an Aspire 7535-5020 with an Athlon 64 X2 cpu in it and when looking for more information about it I stumbled upon another forum where some people were talking about Windows 7 reporting that the cpu was actually a Turion. Anyone know anything about this?

Even looking at Acer's website it says this model has an Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core in it. Would this be a Windows bug reporting the wrong thing, or the actual hardware is built using different components than what is marketed and sold?

I would like to hear others thoughts before I actually open the box when it gets here.

My ordered computer: Aspire 7535-5020

Acer :: 8935g Using Wrong Display Adapter

Jun 6, 2009

I finally got my Acer 8935G, and right away, wiped the hard drive clean of all the crap that comes on notebooks. In this process, I removed the "recover" partition... didn't think much of it at the time until I realized they didn't include a single CD with drivers or OS. Oh well, thats not the issue.

I loaded the computer up with the RC version of Windows 7 - and everything seems to be working great, except, the LCD is using the built in Express Intel 45 Display Chipset, and no the ATI Radeon 4670.

I have both devises listed in my Hardware Manage, and under display properties, but I am unable to set the screen to use the proper display adapter...

My other issue is - acer doesn't even have this model listed on their website as it is so new - they don't have any place to download drivers and neither does anywhere on the internet.

Acer :: Installed Wrong NVIDIA Graphics Driver

Nov 30, 2008

As I had been having a couple of minor problems with a temporary dim screen on startup and occasional screen flicker, I decided to upgrade the NVIDIA display driver on my 5920G.

Unfortunately I rather carelessly installed driver update 180.48 for a 8800 GS rather than the correct 178.24 for the 8600GT on my laptop.

It installed fully and the display still seems to be working OK (but screen flicker still there)

I am wondering whether or not it is OK to leave the 180.48 driver as it is or whether I should roll the driver upgrade back and then install 178.24.

To be honest I find installing drivers quite complicated and difficult so I would prefer to take no action unless the expert advice from members of this forum says it will cause me future problems.

Acer :: Aspire 5672Wlmi - Error Saying That I Have The Wrong Battery

Mar 21, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5672Wlmi and recently my battery went completely dead. I went to the Acer website to find out that they are out of stock which meant that I am out of luck. A quick search on amazon gave me some promising results and a few days ago I bought a battery that is an equivalent of the one I need.

If I try to boot the computer using the battery I get an error saying that I have the wrong battery and I should insert the correct battery and press any key. This message is shown immediately after the Acer logo flashes momentarily during the POST so I guess this restriction comes from Acer's BIOS. Right now it seems my chances of having the right battery are as high as being able to find a key that says "any" o my keyboard.

However I know that the battery is fine because it runs fine if I insert it once the latop has booted. Even if I remove the power plug after that it runs just fine. Also the fact that I am able to read the message when the latop is running only on battery is sufficient to convince me that my battery is fine and my BIOS is wrong.

My questions is, what should I do to fix this problem? I have already contacted the seller but I thought you guys might know more about how to fix this. I guess it would involve flashing the bios which is fine with me.

If it matters for the BIOS version, the laptop was bought in the UK.

Acer :: Aspire 5101AWLMI- Unusually High (100%) CPU Usage

Feb 20, 2009

I've had my acer aspire 5101AWLMI for almost two years, and it's always worked fine, at times it was a bit slow, so I upgraded the given ram (1gb) to 4gb (the accepted maximum). However, recently A new problem has developed.

Sometimes when I run a program (it can be anything from a full-screen high-spec video game to a tiny browser-based flash video) My computer becomes really slow, until I minimise it. I checked on task manager, and my CPU usage jumps up to 100% when the program or applictaion is open, and falls back to around the usual when I minimise it.

It's not a virus, there are no extra processes running, just the process that /are/ currently running (espescially the one that slows everything down) take up way more of the cpu uses than normal. My processor is an AMD Turion 64 Mobile technology MK-36 (2.0 ghz, 512 kb L2 cache).

Acer :: Aspire 8930G Bios Flashing Went Wrong

Sep 29, 2009

I flashed the Bios (from Acer webpage vers. 1.10 to vers 1.13) on my notebook Acer Aspire 8930G - 864G64Bn. No I have a really big problem.

I can switch on my notebook and it shows the Acer empowering people screen, but stay there. Nothing happens. The only thing I can do is press F2 (is the only thing which is offered on the screen) But also there it just says please wait.... and nothing happens.

At the first time reboot after flashing I was able to enter the Bios, but since than I can't.

So I read a lot of using a usb thumb drive or an external floppy drive.

Will this work for my notebook and should I copy just the .FD file on it?

Acer Aspire 5750 :: Freezes Unexpectedly During Usage

Jan 28, 2015

My laptop (Acer Aspire 5750) has been freezing ever since the day I purchased it. I've had the laptop for about 2 years and done clean installation of Windows multiple times to attempt to fix the problem. It happens to freeze unexpectedly during usage of the latop and even when I'm away and come back it is frozen which leads me to turning the laptop off and on. I do have SquareTrade warrenty on my laptop and I sent it in so I can try getting the problem and fixed; but I got it back.

Acer Aspire ES1-512 :: Space Bar Unresponsive

Jan 4, 2015

I have just purchased the Acer Aspire ES1-512 laptop from Tesco, the laptop will be used for college assignments so will involve a lot of typing.  The keys are fine apart from the space bar which is pretty much hit and miss, press the centre of the space bar it works fine, but when pressing the edges or near to the bottom of the space bar and it only works some times and others it doesn't work at all.  This means going back and having to put in the missing spaces on documents which is pretty time consuming.

Acer :: Aspire 6530g Abnormally Show High CPU Usage

Jan 25, 2010

High CPU Usage despite nothing showing on Task Manager or Process Explorer.

I was asked to have a look at a relatively new Acer Aspire 6530g laptop recently that was beginning to become almost unusably slow all of a sudden. The system (which comes with 4gb of ram) literally can no longer run a couple of simple applications at the same time. Displaying typical behaviour of high CPU usage, ie taking a long time to respond, typed sentences seeming to pause and then jump to the end, video noticably jerky accompanied by a crackling through the speakers.

The system had a fresh re-installation of Vista done, which seemed to solve the problem briefly, reappearing again after a week or so, and then upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 in an attempt to solve the problem, again the symptoms appeared to stop after the upgrade (or weren't as evident) and returned yet again after only another week or so.

First thing i did was check task manager for something slowing the system. I suspected perhaps some malware or a trojan on the system.

This is where it gets weird. Nothing. If for instance theres just 1 browser window playing a flash game, it slows to a crawl. CPU shows 75-95% usage, yet nothing is seemingly using it. To go a little deeper I installed sysinternals process explorer to see a little deeper into what might be causing it. Again, nothing. Showing overall High CPU usage, but nothing appeared to be using all of the CPU..................

Acer :: Aspire 5100 - What The Average Idle/ Light Usage Temperatures Are

Jan 20, 2010

i have an older laptop (Acer Aspire 5100), Still works like new, but I was wondering what the average idle/ light usage temperatures are? Right now I'm getting a pretty solid temp reading at 45C, which I think it pretty good for a laptop. Anyone else have same/similar model (AMD D-C x64 TK-53 1.70 Ghz) that could give me there temps. Secondly I recently replaced the LCD and inverter. The inverter was for the orginal LCD but i got a matte screen instead of the glossy. I'm not sure whether it's always been like this since the original inverter, but i notice it get pretty warm over the plastic. I'm know there's quite a bit of voltage going through there, but it is it normal to get warm? (not burning temp, but noticeable hot/warm to the touch

Nov 24, 2008

Acer :: 3810T-6775 Only Has 28GB Of Free Space Out Of Box

Aug 14, 2009

When the Timeline series came out, I figured it was the new laptop that I wanted to get and spent the last month or so trying to decide which version to get. When newegg ran the 13" with the SU9400 and the 80GB SSD I figured that was the one for the price. My old laptop had an 80GB HD in it and I only used about 40, so why would I need a 500GB HD? Well I finally bought it and got it yesterday. I've been playing around with it for a day and was deleting some of the garbage installed on it like 20 games! After a while of that I checked to see how much space was on the HD and to my surprise it said 28.0GB Free of 60.5GB!

Acer :: Timeline 1810TZ Video Flicker/choppy Issue, Wrong Driver

Jan 1, 2010

I just bought an Acer Timeline 1810TZ a few days ago. I'm having problems with video flickering when I play .avi files and every other file format in VLC media player, I tried a few other players and it's the same issue. I'm pretty sure it's the video drivers I'm using but I don't know how to fix it. I did a clean install of Windows 7 ultimate the day I got it. The image and audio speed is fine on the screen but there's flickering lines across the screen when the camera moves around.

it's not fun watching flickering movies.

I have installed the Mobile Intel GS45 Express Chipset drivers just as recommended on this forum Acer 1410, 1810, 3810, 4810, 5810 Timeline Drivers, Software, Tweaks and Settings FAQ

Acer Aspire One 722 :: Why A Hidden Partition - How To Recover Lost Space

I discovered the space holds MS Office but I can't access Office without purchasing it which I have no need for so this is just a closet full of stuff I don't want and apparently I can't use the storage space either.

Acer Aspire V5-473P-5602 :: Battery Indicator Wrong - Show Different Values At Different Times

Oct 29, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire V5-473P-5602. It's just over 2 months old. It's been for repair twice, and both times the repair does not solve the original problem.
 
The issue is this... I will charge the computer to 100%. While using, the battery indicator will show different values at different times. Basically all over the map. Once the indicator gets down to 30% or so , I'm in the "shut down" zone where the computer will shut down because there is actually little or no power left in the battery though its says 30% or 24% or whatver value it may be.
 
Again this has been to the Acer Repair Shop to be "repaired" twice so far. They changed the Mainboard ( Motherboard I assume) TWICE so far and the problem STILL persists. I can't even get to the "Low or Critical" battery warnings ( currently set at 15% and 5%) because it shuts down before reaching those levels.
