i just recently bought this laptop and was first satisfied with it's features.
But then.... 64MB of system video memory?
Come on Acer. And so I was thinking if I could add some graphics like buying a decent video card for it.
I heard that video cards for laptops are in PCI express.
Can my Acer use it?
IF and only IF this Acer Aspire doesn't have the ability to use a new video card, is there any other way I could improve its graphics like getting some of the built-in shared memory and putting it in the video?
Just bought one of these ACER ASPIRE 7720G laptop's from ebay afew days back. It comes with the Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS, but i'm wondering if it's possible to upgrade this card with something that packs more of a punch.
If it is possible, what would be the ideal card for this setup?
The processor is the Intelģ C2D T7300 Processor, 2 gb ram, 250gh hd space.
I just want to know if my laptop video card is upgradable? I have the 4745G core i3 330M with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 514 VRAM. I want to know if it is possible to upgrade it to 1Gb or 2Gb any brand of video card.
I currently have a: Acer Aspire E ¬† Model Name: Aspire E5-511-P2D6Part Number: NX.MNYAA.002 ¬† Windows 8.1Intel Pentium N3530 Quad-core (4 Core) 2.16 GHz15.6" HD (1366 x 768) 16:9Intel HD Graphics with Shared Memory8 GB, DDR3L SDRAM1 TB HDD ¬† Is there a way that i can change my video card memory. It says im using 32MB but my maximum is 1792MB. How to I make it run at 1792MB?
I recently bought the laptop in my sig. I could have paid an extra £100 for a Blu-Ray drive and 500GB HDD, but I chose not to. I don't necessarily regret this, but I'll probably want to upgrade to a Blu-Ray drive at some point.
Does anyone know what Blu-Ray drive comes with this laptop? Or if any other Blu-Ray drives work? I'm not interested in recording, just standard playback.
I am trying to disable integrated video card,because¬†it eat my ram. In BIOS (Inshyde) didn't enabled advenced menu On offical Acer site don't uploaded drivers for Windows 7 x64 and BIOS image (( Supports don't answer, just send me respond to email about¬†acceptance¬†my post.
I own this model since May 2013, and all this time I have this problem: ¬† In my drivers list the NVidia GeForce Mobile sometimes is present and most of the time not.
When it suddenly appears it will stay for a few days or weeks and I can play all the modern games happily. But then something will happen computer will reboot and the driver is no longer in the list, and for month until it will appear suddenly again. ¬† This already happened about 5 times. Unfortunately I cannot go to the repair because I bought this device in Taiwan and now I am in rural Russia. ¬† I suppose it might be a microcrack in the PCB or maybe a bad sensor or a bad cable, who knows. This is definitlely not a driver or software issue. Or is it? ¬† This device is very good, but without GeForce it looses about 25% of it's value.
just bought a computer: Acer Aspire 5739G wireless card: intel wifi link 5100 -all drivers up to date
when i started to connect my wireless network 9 feet away(it has full connection) it said could't connect to network. Then i desided to try right beside the router and it worked. then when i walked from the router(5 feet) the connection sais limited connection. 8 feet no connection the same happened when i tryed to do it at my friend.
I updated it to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using the disk Acer sent me about a month ago, but never checked to see if any games work until today. Stupid, I know. I put in the CD, the game starts to load up and then it goes to a black screen. It always did this when I had Vista too, but it usually came back on and the game was loaded up. Its stuck there then and I'm forced to hold down the power button and restart the computer.
I updated the driver for the Nvidia GeForce GT 130M to its latest (mainly because I have no clue what to do and thought to myself "yeah, that sounds like something that might be wrong with it"), but no change.
I've recently purchased the Aspire 5739G off Newegg and would like to install XP on the machine. Fortunately, there are official XP drivers for this model on the Acer support website. I've downgraded before and know the procedure of slipstreaming the SATA drivers. Which drivers do I slipstream for this model? I noticed on the drivers page there is a SATA AHCI Driver. Is this the driver to slipstream?
I just recently bought a Acer Aspire 5739G and installed Windows 7 64 bit. All the bells and whistles are working except the fingerprint reader and the bluetooth.
I've tried a multitude of drivers from the manufacturers website and the acer driver website but to no avail.
Any attempt to install the bluetooth drivers asks for the device to be plugged in or turned on and pressing the BT button only displays the "bluetooth disabled" image on the screen. I can't see any bluetooth device installed in the device manager but there are a bunch of HID-compliant devices under the Human Interface Devices tab.
Installed the Windows 7 x64 Acer Bio Protection all goes fine until the System Wizard where it tells me that it can't detect the fingerprint scanner even tho I can see it installed in the device manager. It's installed as "TouchStrip Fingerprint Sensor" under Biometrics.
is there any way to control the fan speed of this lap top?
I have tried speedfan, rivatuner, even tried the undervolting option with RMClock (no success - the CPU was running at the lowest voltage already).
One option did present some signs of activity - Acer Asprie One (!) Fan Control utility. However, it only switched off the fan completely. Besides that, it was quite unstable and sometimes forgot to turn the fan back on after the threshold of temperature was crossed again.
By the way: computer doesn't get hot at all. The feel is quite cool, as Speedfan utility indicates these temperatures:
The Aspire 5739G I purchased from Newegg in July has been randomly crashing on me.
Windows completely freezes without BSOD, I can't move my mouse, the sound skips repeatedly, and the keyboard is unresponsive (num lock won't turn on) which forces me to manually shut down with the power button. The screen flashes a bit before the crash happens.
I first experienced these problems after I installed Windows 7, but I reset to factory defaults w/Vista and the problem still remains. After two fresh installs of Win7 and one of Vista I am stumped. I also ran the Western Digital HDD, memory diagnostic tool, and mem86 and they all didn't find any problems with my hardware.
The crashes have occurred in Excel, playing flash movies, games, but mostly in playing videos. However the crash is completely random. I have tried both media player classic and VLC with different movies and windows has crashed with both. Not to mention that the same video that crashed my computer, I can play again with no problems or it will crash again at a different spot so it's not a corrupt file. Also I've tried both official and unofficial video card drivers and that didn't work. Event Viewer also doesn't tell me crap.
My laptop is still under warranty but I'm afraid Acer won't take it back or do anything if the problem isn't obvious. I once sent this laptop in for a noisy fan (loud buzzing noises) but they sent it back without repair since they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Even though the fan is noisy, speedfan says that temperature is kept cool and I'm also using a laptop cooler.
When I'm listening to music, my speakers tend to crackle every once in a while. Even with headphones, I get the same problem if not worse. I've searched around and it seems to be a driver issue but I've updated to the the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers and it still crackles. I'm just wondering if people with the same laptop have similar issues while listening to music or my laptop is faulty.
My Asprie 5739 appears to have gone into sleep mode. ¬†When I push the power button the power charge LED below the touch pad blinks, but it does not boot, even when I hold it for a long period of time. ¬† ¬† I removed the battery and power, then plugged it back in, tried holding down the power button with the same result. ¬† Left it unplugged for a day, same result. ¬† Have tried to hold the power button + FN F4, still not response.
I have a big issue with my Acer Aspire 5739G laptop that I recently purchased through Ebay. Actually, I bought it from Newegg dba Fred's Fresh Deals. (Newegg sells their returned items and cosmetically damaged goods under this name on Ebay). The laptop was advertised as a possible hard drive issue (it couldn't load windows and the error code looked like a boot sector virus, so I purchased it thinking a simple reformat will fix it).
CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2G Screen 15.6" Memory Size 4GB DDR3 7200RPM Hard Disk 320GB Optical Drive DVD Super Multi Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M Video Memory 1GB Communication Modem, Gigabit LAN and WLAN CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo CPU Speed T6600(2.20GHz) CPU FSB 800MHz CPU L2 Cache 2MB Chipset Chipset Intel PM45 Display Screen Size 15.6" Wide Screen Support Yes Resolution 1366 x 768 LCD Features LED backlight & Acer CineCrystal Technology Operating Systems Operating System Windows 7
After I did a fresh reformat of the hard drive and a fresh install of Windows 7, the laptop freezes/locks up after 10-30mins on the desktop. I cannot move the mouse or anything, so I have to do a hard reboot. I don't understand how it is happening.
I updated the mobo's Phoenix driver to the latest one, and tried older VGA Nvidia drivers because I thought it might be a video card driver issue; It is still locking up. I went as far as to purchase a brand new laptop hard drive and the problem still arises. There is no BSOD. As noted earlier, the computer just simply freezes. I cleared CMOS....240M GT VGA is running factory settings....I tried leaving only 1 ram stick in the laptop. I never ran through a problem like this before.
I ran it on Safe Mode and the computer seems to be working fine as long as I do simple tasks or remain idle. I did the SFC /SCANNOW in safe mode and it locks up. I attached my event view file to this email. (I tried to install RivaTuner to underclock factory settings, but the program could not load).
I just received my new Acer Aspire 5739g and I want to get the lastest nvidia drivers but nvidia says that i can't that acer wants me to do if from there site and they aren't up to date. I can't even do it manually by downloading the updated driver from nvidia. I downloaded the newer driver and the only thing it let me update from my download was the audio driver. my geforce driver is still the same one 179.52. How do i get it up to 186.xx. i'm lost. also can i get rid of this "mywinlocker" what is that.
I have an Acer Aspire 5585WXMi laptop, approx. 2 yrs old purchased in Singapore. It came with Intel's standard Graphics Media Accelerator 950 and I was wondering if there was any possibility of upgrading to the NVidia GPU? When I purchased the laptop I could have paid a little bit extra for the NVidia add-on but decided against (regretting now) so as far as I can tell it should be possible to add on the GPU module?
I know there has been a lot of threads questioning this and generaly speaking most people have said it is not possible, but i really dont want to believe it as its the only thing that lets my laptop down!
processor: intel core 2 duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz 2.00 GHz Memory: 2GB OS: vista home premium Graphics card: Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
is it possible to upgrade this graphics card?
if i cant then what would my best option be to have the same sort of specification as my current laptop, but with a decent graphics card? or invest in getting a desktop?
what this intel graphics card thing is and why it is so terrible for playing games?
According to a Dell Rep at least.. This is mostly for the people who have the SXPS 16 with the 3670. I was speaking with a dell rep today and she told me that if I were to buy a 4670 and called tech support.
I could ask for their help to install the video card without voiding warranty. I don't know if this is true..
but does anyone know where to get a 4670 besides Dell's site where it's $109
If I bought m1730 with geforce 8800m can I upgrade it later to get the geforce 9800m? If yes, do I buy the video card and install it myself or I buy the card and dell technician will come to my house and install it for me?
I bought my XPS laptop a couple of years ago and got it with the 128 mb GeForce 8400M GS.
I read on a couple of different websites that you could upgrade the XPS videocards on the XPS.
I went to the Dell website upgrade section and when I entered my service tag number, video cards wasn't an option to upgrade; though motherboards were.
Is it possible to upgrade the videocard to the 256 mb GeForce GT; which I should have purchased to begin with? Do I have to buy a new motherboard and put the 256 chip on it? Lastly, is the 256 the only video card I can buy to replace the 128?
