in choosing which notebook cooler is prefect for Acer 6930g, as i know cooling system work like, its intake from down vents and exhaust from side vents. i have done under clocking cpu its really worked, and currently cpu temp 63c under load and gpu around 75c. and right now iam looking to lower down more temp. i hope there will be perfect notebook for Acer 6930g.
Does anyone know how to remove the primary HDD from an Acer 6930 laptop? It seems to be designed not to be removed, very annoying. I hope we're not returning to the bad old days of having to remove half the casing just to get at one component.
What notebook coolers are you using for the M4400? Are there any notebook coolers that would fit this notebook and plug into the usb port (for the fan unit on the cooler)? I just bought a refurbished M4400 and will be using it for some intense gaming
I'm looking to get a notebook cooler for my E6400, as I am sure some other are considered or have taken advantage of. So, I want to find out one that is going to work the best.
I am considering the following:
- Zalman ZM-NC1000, said to be really quiet and effective. From what I gather blows air up at the notebook
- Antec notebook cooler, also supposed to be quite effective. This one I think sucks away the hot air from the notebook
Now the question is, what is going to be the better choice? I think the fan on the E6400/ E6500 blows hot air out of the notebook right? In which case the cooler that then helps in taking that away would be best?
I spoke with a Dell technician and they told me that the reason my computer was randomly shutting off was because it was overheating and that I needed to replace my heatsink and fan, each costing around $12. I was wondering if buying a notebook cooler might be a better way to go. Any notebook coolers that anyone recommends?
Finally, does anyone know what a technician would charge to replace a heatsink and fan?
I downloaded a program called speedfan and it gives me the following temperatures on my notebook:
HD0: 45C Temp1: 84C Core0: 63C Core1: 63C
Core temperatures moved up while computer was put to heavier use if it makes any difference:
Core 0: 76C Core 1: 74C
Anyone know if this is normal? Computer isn't working too hard right now.
I just bought a HP 255 G2 laptop and downgraded it to win7 ultimate 64bit.I can not find any suitable driver for it, nothing works.I've tried 1. MediaTek(Ralink)802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN (WLAN) Adapter (International) 5.0.45.017 Apr 2014 36.3
I just bought myself a new laptop, ACER ASPIRE 6930G. Got home, booted up Vista, did the formatting for it, all is well. It begins installing 21 files that came with it, so I shrug it off and go to pass the time.
I return and it appears to be stuck on number 13. InstantOn Arcade. It was like this for a good hour and a bit. So I try to use the laptop while it installs and lo' and behold it's frozen. I reboot and it continues to install from file number 13 again. 5-10 minutes into it, it freezes, again. This continues to happen each time I boot it up.
Now I reboot again, this time closing the installation before doing anything, and I get about 10-15 minutes into using the laptop and again, it locks up.
I'm really concerned as I've been looking to purchase a laptop and this one stuck out for me and now it works this well? /sarcasm.
So far I think its a great notebook for the price. I have'nt ran into any serious issues.
1. Sound - When playing music the sound is ok, However with Bluray or DVDs the sound is very low, even on 100% volume level. I tested the Bluray disc that came with it and the DVD to Twister, and in a quiet room its too low to capture all the details of the sound. Agian music (ie.MP3s) sound fine, but movies are very low. I tried enabling the Dolby Pro IIx but that didn't help.
2. Webcam - How exactly do I turn it on/off. I found the crystal eye software that works with it automatically turning the camera on, but it has no options to do anything with it. No record button or anything. I read that Windows Movie Maker can be used, but it does not detect the camera at all.
3. Acer Arcade Deluxe. - The album art of the music that I add does show up. I have them embedded in the idtags, They show up in Vista Media Center however.
4. This is probably more of a Vista issue, but I noticed the hard drive is constanly being access most of the time, and I can't figure out why. I googled and learned about potential culprits like Superfetch, and Search Indexing, Auto defraging, and Malware Scanners. And after disabling all of that the drive still read/writes like crazy when its idle. In Task Manager, I've discover that a file lsass.exe and svchost.exe are the primary culprits, but I don't know if and how I should disable them.
I'm not really sure if I should be putting this here or make a specific thread in the gaming section to ask specifically about the GPU there.
Anyway, I am looking to find out what the average CPU and GPU temps of the 6930G people are seeing while gaming.
I noticed while playing certain games that my 6930G gets rather hot and while I know notebooks generally run hotter then a desktop I am not really sure if the temps I see are normal or not. I have not seen any real decrease in performance while gaming, nor have I had and other problems with the notebook. I am currently not running a notebook cooler but I will be purchasing one very shortly. The fans and vents are regularly cleaned out.
Here are some temps I am seeing using HW Monitor with my 6930G at idle and during gaming while room temp is 22*C, Idle -CPU=46*C -GPU=55*C Gaming -CPU=85*C -GPU=90*C sometimes hitting a max of 96*C for a second or two
Changing graphics setting in the game have no effect on temps I am seeing.
Oh and the video card in my 6930G is a 9600m GT 512mb GDDR3.
So are the temps I am seeing normal? What temps do you see while gaming with your 6930G?
Just got Windows 7, and have installed 64-bit to my Acer Aspire 6930G. I'm having some issues getting the graphics and sound "just so".
Have tried a number of drivers from the Acer website, but I cannot get the Tuba bass thing to play, and the sound is currently pretty bad.
Also working out what Nvidia drivers are the best to use is proving unusually difficult. Windows 7 automatically downloaded some when I first booted, 186.52, are these good to use? They are not available from Nvidia, just 186.51. With either of these drivers I don't seem to have full control over how to scale images, I'm forced to use my display's scaler.
I don't have any of the Acer empowering softwate installed, I tried checking out the Acer website, but I'm having difficulty working out exactly what would be best to use with Windows 7 (or if I should use it any at all.)
Windows 7 seemed to intall drivers for most items, so I don't know what I need to install manually. I no longer have any "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" software, for example, and cannot find this for download either?
i have a question and is very simple. My acre is the model 6930g with a p7450 a graphic card ati 4650 and 2 hard drives. i have already done overclock in my graphic card but i cant do in my cpu. how can i do? because i have already saw a lot of notebooks that the cpu could reach 2.5ghz, so i think that it is also possible do in the acer 6930g.
I know PCs inside and out, build my own etc. I have recently bought my first laptop ever (6930g-6762, in canada, since they seem to be different in various countries?).
I have some questions.
1. My on board speakers sound like crap. They sound like unpowered speakers, very tinny and very distorted. HDMI output and speaker out both sound great, when I bypass the onboard speakers.
2. Do I need all the Acer software? I'd like to delete the hidden partitions, repartition the drive and do an install from a 'normal' Vista x64 DVD. I can't believe all the bloat that comes with a laptop.
3. Is a regular install the same process as for a regular PC? ie, install windows then all the drivers etc...or must I make a vlite DVD?
4. Can I use my OEM license on a retail DVD image?
5. How do I use the volume slider, and media controls (the lit up blue ones) on the PC itself? are they touch sensitive? I'm not sure mine work...
Recently I often found a trade information that someone sailing a Acer 6930G which is P7450/1G/320G/9600M GT...but he just showed us a test picture that GPU-Z identified his graphics as Quadro FX770M....and I saw another who also have 6930G showed his 3dmark06 scored 6040 with FX770M....I wanna know if he install the Quadro drivers for his 9600M GT?
I have recenttly purchased a 6930G and am very happy wioth it so far howver I went to play some movies that were in AVI format and all I got was the lines on the Windows Media Player and the sound. Can any one help out here, I was under the understanding that this was a complete Home Thearter package.
