Acer :: 6935G Switch From Vista To XP Home

Apr 29, 2009

I have the Acer Aspire 6935G and it came with Vista, which I hate. I want to switch to XP Home but I can't locate the various drivers apart from on sites which claim to offer 'free drivers' but then ask for fees. Has anyone experience of siwtiching from Vista to XP on this machine please, or can anyone point me to a reliable source of drivers?

Acer :: IE Version In Vista Home Basic Aspire 4530

Mar 9, 2010

What web browser does Vista Home Basic come with? Is it IE6 or IE7?

I'm a bit stumped because it seems that may have foolishly removed IE7 from my laptop.

Chrome is on there now, but a shortcut to IE7 is still on the quick launch bar.

I wanted to bring IE7 back and install it, but I don't see a copy for Vista home basic online.

Acer :: 5570-4011- Installing Winxp Instead Of Vista Home

Dec 27, 2007

I have acer 5570-4011 laptop with vista home (and ubuntu on a separate partition). I rebooted from cd, using winxp pe, deleted all files on vista partition, except those in the root, and started to install win xp pro. After installation files were copied to the hard drive, I restarted without cd and when setup continued, it gave me "file ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded. Error code is 7".

On MS support site they say about ACPI or memory problems and suggest to press F7 during that step to skip ACPI check, but it doesnt help in my case.

How can I install WinXP ?

Acer :: Calling All SamaritansMy Extensa 4420-5237 Will Not Complete A Vista Home Premium (retail) Installation

Jun 21, 2009

This is a laptop without Recovery Discs, where the original drive partitions were erased and reformatted as 1 big partition. During Vista installation, it always reboots just as Vista is on the verge of "Completing Installation". So near and yet so far. The BIOS shows the hard drive as an IDE drive - even though this is clearly a SATA drive. Is this a driver problem? Do I need to load SATA drivers before having Vista go through the installation?

Dell :: Vista Home Premium- 2GB Vs. 4GB

Dec 20, 2007

I have been searching all over various forums and tech sites for an answer. Currently I have 2 GB of ram in my 1520 that's running Home Premium. I've done a clean install after adding the 1 GB Turbo Cache module. It was only about $30.00 and figured worth the risk to try for performance gains. I haven't felt much there.

Does anyone have any positive feedback on performance when upgrading from 2 GB to 4 GB of RAM? I am running 32 BIT and don't care that the full 4 GB are not recognized. I don't want to waste money unless it will make some difference.

Aside from the clean install, I've been using X-Setup Pro, Tweak UAC and TweakIV for optimizing the settings for a little speed. I've also tweaked the services according to Black Viper's web site. The software tweaking has helped immensely.

I appreciate anyone's feedback on upgrading to 4 GB of ram. Sorry if this has been an old discussion getting beat up once again. However, prices are right around $75.00 for 4 GB of G Skill from Newegg.

Dell :: Need A Reinstallation Disc For Vista Home Premium

Feb 15, 2010

Dell never gave my girlfriend a disc to re-install Vista.

Actually... I'm playing the role of Tech Support Guy (even speaking to her with a difficult-to-understand Indian accent!!).

She had a crash, so I used VistaPE to get her data off of the computer. Now, I wanna restore Vista to the original factory settings. Sounds easy enough... use f8, right?

Wrong... it won't work in my case. The recovery partition is still there... I just can't access it. The operating system won't boot up at all. I used a non-Dell Vista Home Premium disc to access the Vista System Recovery option, but that doesn't help. I can't get at Dell's recovery partition.

I figure if I had a re-installation disc that's actually from Dell, I could access Vista's System Recovery feature that includes the Dell option to restore the computer to the original factory settings. Problem is, I can't get ahold of one.

Does anybody know where I can find one without going directly to the Dell website? I think Dell has the worst customer service on the planet and I would pay someone to hit me in the head with a sledgehammer before I'd spend one dollar on a Dell product. I've been scouring the internet for two days and can't seem to find a stray copy of what I need.

The computer came factory-installed with the 32-bit (x86) Windows Vista Home Premium.

Yeah... you read that right: a DELL with VISTA!! Could it get any worse?!

This whole thing is driving me bat-sh*t crazy.

I hate Dell... I thank you all in advance for any help that you can give.

Maybe someone would be so kind as to post an .iso image of their own disc?!

HP/Compaq :: To Upgrade Home Premium Vista To W7 Ultimate + SD

Oct 27, 2009

I'm one of those people that purchased a notebook during the free Vista to W7 upgrade period so I'm eligible for the no cost W7 upgrade. However, I would also like to additionally upgrade from Home Premium to W7 Ultimate now that it's available.

What would be the most efficient and economical route to combine all these upgrades and include a student discount? Is there a way to do this so that I only have to upgrades once?

Dell :: Clean Install (Vista Home Basic)Inspiron 1525

Jan 19, 2009

I want to do a clean Vista install on the above notebook, and if the time comes, restore the setup (OS) to the default config with minimal effort. Read a lot of threads on how to do this, but just need some help/advice on the following.

Currently the HDD partitioned as:
110MB (EISA Config), FAT16 Pri
10GB, RECOVERY (D:), NTFS Pri
136GB, OS (C:), NTFS Pri Act
2.5GB MEDIADIRECT, FAT32

Discs supplied with laptop: Vista Reinstall DVD, Dell Drivers & Utilities, Roxio, Dell MediaDirect

What I want is to do a clean Vista install to the OS (C:) partition (formatting it), but still keep the other partitions in case I have to resell my notebook. My main concern is not being able to restore the factory image back to C .....

Dell :: M1210 Should I Make The Vista Switch

Jul 28, 2007

I purchased my M1210 in late December and got it configured so that I could switch to Vista if I wanted. I got MCE on it and I think the configs for Vista. Here's my dilemma: I don't whether to switch to Vista or not. I got the free upgrade CD that Dell sent me. I have read, though, some really bad reviews of Vista. Is that b/c some systems don't have the right configs? Should I switch? I'm heading off to college in less than a month. What should I do? The college recommends either Windows XP Prof. or Windows Vista Ultimate (oh yea, why ultimate? isn't that overdoing it? i thought at first it was but then the dell college website also recommends ultimate. why is that?). Would my system be ready for ultimate? The upgrade I got is for Home Premium. They recommend I get ultimate but, unless there's something I'm not seeing, I think Home Premium will suffice. But should I switch or stay with XP? If you do think I should switch, is there some guide online somewhere that can guide me through it (ie. which drivers to backup, etc.)

Here are my specs:Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7200 (2GHz/667MHz/4MB), 2GB, DDR2, 667MHz 2 Dimm, 256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 TurboCache, 160GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive XPS 1210

One more thing (sorry for the long post): what do you think about securing my 1210? Should I use an actual lock or would software like LoJack be enough?

Acer :: CineDash Config - Acer 6935G And Windows 7 64bit Version

Mar 1, 2010

Recently I developed this simple application that lets you easily configure CineDash and other buttons functions on Acer laptops. This application, Acer CineDash Config, is mainly for mine purposes.

I tested it on my Acer 6935G and Windows 7 64bit version. It probably should work on other models and systems to.

Some of the features that Acer CineDash Config supports are:
32bit and 64bit systems
Configuring applications to run and captions for buttons:oArcade DeluxeoEmpowering tech.oInternetoE-MailMaking and restoring registry backup
Enabling media keys to work with other programs, like winamp, and restoring original key mapping file

Acer :: No Blu-ray From 6935g To Projector

Dec 30, 2008

My main aim is to playback Blu-ray ripped movies from 6935g and output to projector via hdmi.

When projector is connected to 6935g, yeah, it detected the projector and the desktop appears on the projector screen, that's the easy part 6935g downsized to 1280x720p automatically, guess that is because my pj only supports 720p and not 1080p, need to start save again for a 1080p pj,

Now the big question
Powerdvd playback the movie on the 6935g screen but the powerdvd on the pj screen is black in color, no movies

I use powerdvd instead of acer arcade deluxe because the latter does not play Blu-ray ripped movies, also the acer arcade does not play blu-ray disc from the blu-ray drive, it says graphic driver not compatible it does however play the demo disc when pj not connected

Acer :: Cannot Get WMP 11 To Run On Brand New 6935G

May 22, 2009

After reading great reviews about it, I took the plunge and bought the 6935G last week.

Its a fantastic machine and I'm really delighted with it apart from one major problem - I can't get Windows Media Player 11 to run at all.

The installation of Vista SP1 appeared to go well and the machine seems to be operating perfectly in all other ways (apart from the sidebar not displaying gadgets properly which does not bother me much).

I can see WMP included in the list of programs when I click on the start menu and I can also see it in my "C" drive under Program Files but when I attempt to run it nothing at all happens. The blue circle appears for 1 or 2 seconds then disappears - thats all that happens.

I'm not sure if this is related but when I go to the Music section of Windows Media Center I get the message "A necessary component of Windows Media Center is currently not available "

As I'm a "silver surfer" with limited computer knowledge, I'm probably doing something stupid (or maybe forgettiing to enable something) but I would really appreciate help in getting WMP 11 to work on this otherwise fantastic machine.

As I use WMP to manage my music, its important to me.

Acer :: 6935G Output To LCD TV

Feb 14, 2009

I am trying to connect the 6935G to LG 22LG30R (1680x1050 VGA and HDMI)

First I try the VGA, I try clone but fail coz the LCDTV only 1050 and it will keep trying and looping. Then I try output to LCDTV only but it can get 1680x1050 and the system will start to kick the TV and start cloning again and looping. So I gave up VGA then go try HDMI.

ON HDMI, I try output to LCDTV only but it keep kicking me out too and screen keep flashing. Then I try clone it, it seems the screen stop flashing but the LCDTV screen was chop, plus the whole computer is lagging, like every 3s my mouse will stop then move again.
