I have had it for a while and have ugraded the Ram and put Bluetooth into it. Now Im wanting the sound to be better. Just a higher output so it louder. Is there anyway of doing this. New sound card or driver of some sort?
my Aspire 3050-1905 had an terrible hijacker virus. I finally got it removed using malware bytes. Long story short, I decided to replace my hard drive and upgrade the memory. I re-installed my drivers and such using my orignal backup disc. Well everything worked fine until I turned off my computer and restarted the very next day, my touch pad and keyboard isn't responding. If I plug in external keyboard and mouse not problem, or if I start up in safe mode I can use my keyboard and touch pad with no problem.
im looking to upgrade the hdd on this laptop.. the problem is i cant seem to find anywhere as to what size of disk is a maximum allowed.

I recently upgraded the CPU in my Acer Aspire 3050-1150 to a Turion XL-56. The first bootup was a breeze, and Windows Vista Home Basic recognized the new chip no problem. Temps ended up being cooler than before the upgrade.
Later that day, comp just shut down. I tried to reboot...comp started but shut off a second or two into loading windows. Next boot attempt the on/off switch wouldn't work at all...appeared dead. I waited a few minutes, took out the AC adapter and windows booted. Next time at bootup, similar pattern, but wouldnt boot even with the AC adapter taken out. This time it booted with the battery out and AC in.
Similar pattern at every bootup...false starts, shuts down at various points, but then eventually boots up after several attempts. I have just been leaving it on, in sleep mode when not in use. I am very afraid of doing a windows update which requires a reboot, so I haven't been doing that.
I've had my Acer Aspire 3050-1905 for about 8-9 months. For the most part I've always left the a/c plugged in. Well a few days ago I decided to drain the battery and when I charged the battery it won't go past 4% charged. It works fine with the battery out and ac plugged in. But when I try to charge the battery it won't go past 4%. I used NHC and the wear level is at 0%.
First I thought it was the contact problem with the power adapter then I fixed that problem. Now it simply turns on and and does nothing. After awhile even the fan comes on properly. But the laptop has no pic nothing no hardrive movement nothing.
I have just instaled a new hard drive in a 3050 and i have installed windows xp, as it used to have vista. i have installed all the drivers for sound, card reader, graphics and all is good. But, i cannot get the wireless to work, even after instaling the drivers. it will work with a wireless dongle ok and go online.
I have looked everywhere and even found some SATA drivers that worked for other Acer SATA laptops, but not the 3050. I looked at other posts for the 3050 on this forum which helped me get other drivers, but not the SATA drivers.
Right now my Aspire one only has 1GB of RAM, which I guess is enough but 1.5GB won't hurt it at all. I was curious about the size and speed.
IF I bought a 2GB stick of RAM would it be regocnized? Also If I bought 800 MHz RAM what would it be clocked down to? Right now it's running at 533 Mhz I think, but CPU-Z is saying it's PC-5300 RAM. CPU-Z also says that I have one empty slot? What's that about? I thought that the Aspire One has 512MB built in and had one slot for a stick of RAM? Any ideas about CPU-Z is saying?
As all of you folks know, nearly every netbook has the GMA 950. The Aspire One is no exception to this. My One's BIOS will not let me choose the amount of RAM it's using for graphics. It says 8MB in a greyed out form. This means it's adaptive though because I can play AOE3 on it which requires 64MB. How can I choose how much RAM it uses?
This is my current laptop: Acer Aspire 6930G T5800 4 GB RAM 500 GB 7200 RPM 9600M GS
I've upgraded my HDD recently and now have a spare. I've though about adding in a second one into the second bay but those two legs are in the way. Has anyone found a distributor for the hard drive bay door that allows a second HDD or can anyone who has shaved off the legs tell me how much would be a safe length to shave off and what tool would be best for the job.
I've also considered getting a T9900 online (after being put down that it can't support quad cores) and I'm wondering if anyone has successfully installed a T9900 into a Aspire 6930 or 6930G. It sounds fine theoretically but I'm not sure if the CPU would fry my motherboard or not without proper BIOS support. My BIOS is currently on version 3204 and for odd reason, Windows says I have no administrative privileges when I try to phlash it, so I haven't been able to phlash it to version 3236. If I can upgrade it to a T9900, I'm wondering if anyone who has done it before can make a short guide. I remember lucino mentioning that it is more difficult than most laptops.
I've also read on the forums somewhere on a post by aditya900 that the 6930G can supposedly support more than 4 GB of RAM, has anyone verified this? Since messing with video rendering programs and hosting GMod servers tend to use up a lot of RAM, I'm very interested in sticking in a 4 GB stick to get 6 GB.
I'm also interested in getting a ATI 4670 if it does come out in the MXM-II factor or the GT 130M or whatever is the most powerful at the time . I've cracked open the case and the video card is right at the top next to the removable plate.. I'm hoping that you can just slide out the card or do you have to disassemble the case and remove the motherboard in order to upgrade the video card. I'm really hoping it's not the latter. I am wondering if anyone has done this before......................
This is a vague guide and quite clumsy so I have no responsibility whatsoever if you damage your laptop or you lose your data or anything bad happens to your laptop or you etc.
I have to mention though that there is another guide written by lucino but unfortunately he hasn’t finished it and there are no photos. His guide looks more appropriate and safer than mine which is a bit risky but much quicker. Here is the link. lucino's guide I am not sure if there is an update or if he is planning to include photos and finish the guide.
You will need a cross-head screwdriver around 3.0mm (you don’t say!!!) but also a flat one
Please use some kind of protection from ESD (electrostatic discharge) like an antistatic or grounding strap or gloves. This will prevent the static sensitive components from being ruined (memory, video card, motherboard etc).
Sometimes I don’t use it but I know how to discharge myself (i.e. by touching a metallic surface) before touching the laptop........................
I am using this machine over a year, its ok. I am working animation, compositing, sound design and music.So i want to make some changes on this pc.I need some recommendations, ideas about these:
1)I m using 2gb of ram and i want to max this to 4 gb. Is there any specific brand that you can say "good" and i also wonder how much mhz use max, recently i m using 667 and i want to buy what ddr2 offers max if there is no any adaptation issue.
2)I also need a 7200rpm harddisk. But i know nothing about laptop hdds. I m thinking for the best hdd as possible.But, i dont know what hdds are avalible for this Acer model, or is it not necessary something like that.
3) Finally, I ve created an Acer backup DVD, i wonder how easy to setup the computer if i change the hdd? I mean is it going to be licensed and free of problems like before.I used recovery once before, but with Empowering T software. Never did with a DVD.
i am considering an upgrade of my cpu but am not sure wich cpu to buy. Either T9600 or P9600. I know P9600 works cooler and consumes less power, but i dont actualy know how much lower it's performance is. (got my information here and some on intel's website)
My current config is: Intel Core2Duo P7350 2.0ghz Geforce 9600M GS 512mb DDR2 3gigs ddr2 ram.
I'd like to increase the gaming performance mostly, so is the cpu upgrade worth it considering the cost?
My CPU is a real bottleneck for me. Is there a way I can upgrade my cpu? Know that i'm not that computer advanced when it comes to b replacing parts. Would there be a place where I could take it to upgrade my cpu?
Recently I had a little upgrade adventure of my Aspire 7720G, replaced the nV 8400M GS with 9600M GT 512MB, added 4GB DDR2 @ 667MHz, and then I decided to upgrade the CPU also. I was thinking about T9500 for a long time, then I came across Intel's X9000 CPU (OEM, not the ES). I installed it, BIOS recognized it, Windows also (Win 7 Ultimate x64), but then I noticed something strange. It works only at 1.2GHz, in idle and in 100% load, when it should be at 2.8GHz. I tried my luck with power schemes, I have the latest BIOS, updated drivers and no change at all. CPU-Z reports it works at 1.2GHz all the time with a multiplier x6, it should be at x14. RMClock didn't help me at all, CPUgenie also. Old CPU was T7300, it was also working at 1.2GHz with multiplier x6 in idle but in 100% load the multiplier jumped to x10 and it worked at full speed; 2GHz. Windows Experience Index with T7300 was 5.1, for X9000 is 3.9!
I recently replaced the T5550 cpu in my Aspire 5920 with a T9500 (SLAYX). I bought the T9500 on E-bay as new, SLAYX, installed it and it works fine. Two different programs (CPU-Z and PC Wizard 2008 identify this processor as a T9500 (ES). The cpu had the SLAYX marking on the top. Is it possible I bought an engineering sample cleverly disguised as SLAYX?
Considering an Aspire One right now because it is less expensive than the others. I have a 512MB RAM (DDR2-PC5300) and 80GB 2.5" SATA HDD from my Thinkpad (which I upgraded both). So, I think maybe I could buy the Aspire One the cheapest version (8GB I guess).
So, is it can be done? I know that there is SATA version of the Aspire One but not sure the connector will be there in the SSD version. Try to google it but found only SSD upgrade....
I read a great review on the 1410 and decided to buy it. Been very happy with it, but discovered that it was the Celeron 743 and not the Core 2 Solo. I didn't realize that until I bought it from Newegg; just thought there was only one CPU offered.
So, my question is, can I upgrade the CPU? If so, what CPUs can I use and has anyone taken an 1410/1810 apart and posted pics or a guide?
after being let down today with a 6920g order (out of stock). The company have instead offered me a 7530 with 9300m gpu, my question guys is can I upgrade it to maybe a 9600m gs, and the same for the cpu, however i'm not 100% sure which cpu it has yet I think its a turion x2 rm?.
It also has 320hdd and a 1400x900 screen, and blue ray/ dvd/dl, does it have 2 hdd bays?
I feel like my heads about to pop after so much research over the last 6 days,
And I would love to hear your general opinions on this model too, good or bad.
There seems to be very little on goole about it, I can't find a review anywhere.
i have an aspire 3053wxci laptop and i want to upgrade the cpu to an amd turion64x2. my question is what type of thermal grease/pad do i use on the cpu and other chipsets? any help would be gratefully recieved.
also would i have to upgrade the bios to a newer version?
i currently have the Acer Aspire 8930G 584G32Bn - my processor is Intel core2 duo T5800 (2.0 GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2 MB L2 cache) - running Windows 7 x64 (bought this so it is a 'vanilla' (clean) install - didn't come pre-loaded on laptop
i am wanting a performance boost (currently getting this by using a program called throttle stop)
i know there are different Intel processors such as the Q900 and Extreme...
what is the best possible processor for my system? and what would you reccomend?
