2017 4K V nitro?

Question: 2017 4K V nitro?

Sorry if this is the wrong thread, couldnt find anything in regards to the v nitro series. Ive been looking at a new laptop to replace my V3-771g from 5 years ago and im looking at the V nitro series. The 2017 models are finally for sale but none have a 4K screen. I was wondering if this feature will be released on later models or not at all. Thanks

Preferred Solution: 2017 4K V nitro?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: 2017 4K V nitro?

Hi, It is likely that 4K models will be released, however, acer hasn't confirmed this and it is only public speculation. The top tier models seem to have a GTX 1060, which isn't good enough for 4k gaming. I'd still recommend the 1080p version

Hi I have just got my acer today and it micro stutters when finished installing an app or a game and when the run as admin pop ups. Right now my intel graphics driver is version 21.20.16.4627 Maybe it is the intel graphics driver but it won't let me install the newest driver: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26772/Graphics-Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-45-?pr... "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer." Have you experienced any stutter / lags / mini freezes with this computer? But overall great laptop with great performance. I7 7700HQ, 1060 and 8gb og ram. And do you know which ram to buy if I need to upgrade ram to 16 gb og 32 gb?  Thanks in advance for answering my questions.

I recieved my Aspire V Nitro 2017 15.6 inch (593G) laptop a few weeks back, and have had nothing but problems with it so far. I am wondering if other people's experiences are similar, so I can gauge whether or not I should send it in for repair. I'm in school right now so sending it in sets me back a bit, so I want to make sure if it's worth it or not. Gaming IssuesPresently, gaming is near impossible due to excessive CPU temperatures. Playing an older game like Far Cry 3 at max settings can punch this CPU straight up to 100 C in only around 30 minutes, and stay there for the duration of a play session. This is with the laptop mounted to allow airflow underneath, a small fan blowing on the topside, and coolboost switched on. I've had similar experiences in other games as well. CPU idle temps are almost constantly ranging around 40-50 C, which isn't too great either. Oddly enough, the GPU is perfect temperature wise.  Regular Use IssuesThis might just be my narrow opinion, given that prior to this I've only used macbooks, but the fans run unusually loud during daily activity. That is, while browsing in chrome, they are loud enough that I can hear them. They also will rev up like a motorcycle engine on occasion, which is incredibly unusual. It seems to specific to be an issue, and might just be intended (Which would be even more frustrating).  CPU Temperature MeasurementUsing HWMonitor and MSI afterburner both show the GPU acting normally, with temp rea...

Just in case someone stumbles on this empty thread with the same issues, I'll put in what solved my problems.  At factory settings, the CPU of this laptop is laughably overvolted. Simply undervolting by 100.00 mV on the CPU, and 80.00 mV on the integrated GPU puts the processor within operating ranges across the board. Playing a new, high end game such as Nier:Automata on high settings can't push this thing above 85 C, and it usually rests at around 80 C. For comparison, Overwatch on ultra pushed this thing to 100 C before undervolting. To undervolt, merely consult onlines guides. There are plenty out there.

So i just installed all my apps and games to the laptop, and when running a game this "gaming" oriented laptop slow considerably down when on battery. When its plugged in the GTX1060 runs games perfectly, but not for some reason wen its plugged. I read somewhere that some gaming laptops require a machine to be plugged in to run games well, but not sure if its the case here or if i am missing something else. The laptop uses nvidia optimus, but when i go to geforce1060 properties i see that it is still running on gtx1060 and not the intel integrated one on battery, so i don't understand why the laptop slows down. I feel its a general slowing down of computer, since i think other tasks on the computer slow a little bit too, not just the gaming. Anyone know what is going on, and what can be the cause of this. At this stage im wondering if there is an actual problem with the laptop or if this is "normal" behaviour. Also if anyone has a fix, i would greatly appreciate.

Sound kinda normal to me. When your laptop is running on battery it is probably switched to a power profile that throttles the CPU/GPU, to stretch the run time. You could go into the power management and change it to "performance" (it's probably on "balanced" now) You can get utils that will show your clock rates and then you could compare DC vs. AC

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
FACEBOOK
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

GPU probably uses Optimus.As for the solutions;1. I understand it's impossible to upgrade, as it is part of the motherboard. But I've heard of people running the Oculus with weaker GPUs, so I'll just try to feel the limits of the GPU once I do have the Oculus running.2. This is the real issue. Installing the software for the Oculus, it says it can not find the display adapter. If I use older software, it installs fine, but the Oculus configuration tool would crash and complain a lot. Is there a way to get rid of that Optimus feature? Be it a hack (I doubt you can tell me how to do it, just tell me if it's possible), or maybe as a service from a lab. Since this laptop is supposed to be used fir VR demos, I don't think he needs the other GPU to work.Note that naturally I am not going to do any changes, as it is not mine, but I do want to get a feel for solutions.Thanks in advance.

I bought Avanquest Nitro PDF a few months ago and found that it works OK but does nothing that Adobe Acrobat does not do.

The reason I bought it is that it supposedly will convert PDF files to MS Word. This is not true. I have tried to convert two identical PDF files including one that was scanned through Nitro PDF and neither one would convert.

I assumed that tech support would be able to help with this but tonight found out that it probably would try but I have to pay $10 for each question.

Needless to say, they will get no more of my money. I bought this program with a rebate offer in November 2008 and the rebate never arrived in spite of my submitting absolutely everything they asked for on their form. They agreed to give me the rebate last week after a phone call but if I had not noticed their denial of my rebate on their site (I was not notified in any way), I would have never known about it. I am skeptical about them actually paying it but I will wait the additional 4-6 weeks they said it would take.

Last year, I bought SystemSuite 8 with two rebate offers. Before submitting the forms, I called the company with a question and was told that they would not pay both rebates in spite of the advertised special. Rather than do a long, time consuming battle, I returned the product for a refund which was sent.

Answer:FPS DROPS in V15 Nitro

Hi markmangado,
It sounds like your power settings are kicking in. By default a notebook is going to try and conserve some power when the battery is in use to increase the time it can run the unit. Go into the control panel and look for Power Options. In Power Options, you'll see that you have two settings, one for plugged in and one for being on battery. You'll want to change the settings on battery to high performance. Just remember this will reduce the life of the battery.

However, I just tried to use Nitro again to convert from Word to PDF and I received this msg:
 
"The service does not have sufficient privileges.  Please reinstall." 
 
Why would I get this msg and where can I reinstall Nitro and be sure that I am at a  legitimate site and not downloading malware onto my computer? 

Answer:No authority to use Nitro

Answer:v17 nitro did not power up

It removes built up static electricity from the system. Static can cause all sorts of mischief.

My 3 day old laptop stays on a black screen, but fans start to run very loudly and keyboard lights up, after I put it out of sleep mode. Typing on the keyboard, moving my hand around the touchpad doesn't do anything. This goes on for 10 minutes before I decided to hold down the power button to reboot the computer 

Answer:Possible defect on v17 nitro

Hello Glim,  Is your V Nitro running Windows 10? I've seen a few cases where strange behaviors such as these would happen on Windows 10 units, especially those that were upgraded from 8.1 either by the end user, or prior to being shipped. (This may not apply to new in box units). I see that you have only had the computer for a couple days. Have you installed any applications or migrated any personal files to this unit yet? One of the possible solutions to this problem involves wiping the unit and reinstalling the Operating System via the recovery partition, and I understand the inconvenience this process could cause if you already have this unit set up just the way you like. If you'd like to continue with this option and would like a set of instructions on how to perform this wipe/restore of the Windows OS, just let me know and I'll post it for you. If the problem still persists, I also recommend if possible to toggle off any Wake on LAN feature or Fastboot/Hybrid Shutdown feature to see if this helps solve the problem for you.

So I have a Aspire VN7-592G and wondering if when Thunderbolt 3 GPU enclosures come to market, will I be able to use them with my laptop? I'd assume it would work fine but am not sure if there's some obstacle in the way with these laptops or if it'd need a BIOS update to work. Any input is appreciated!

Answer:V15 Nitro TB3 eGPU possible?

Black Edition Nitro systems will offer full thunderbolt 3 support, which should support this. Models that are not black edition will use either  USB 3.1 Type C Gen 2 (10 Gbps) while others only support Gen1 (5 Gbps) which would not provide this ability.

Is there a way to get rid of that Optimus feature? Be it a hack (I doubt you can tell me how to do it, just tell me if it's possible), or maybe as a service from a lab.

I wanted to try a Win 7 install to see if the different OS would still have the screen flicker that my PC currently has (to eliminated a hardware problem). I download a copy of Win 7 using the MS download tool (planning to install it as a trial, just too see if the problem still exists), but when I tried to install it the installer would freeze at the Windows splash screen. The best info I could find is that it is probably due to missing drivers, but how do I find out which ones I need?I also tried running the installer directly from Win10 thinking I could dual boot, but the installer fails when looking for updates, and then goes through the install process, reboots, then freezes like I mentioned earlier.

Hello guys I'm new to this forum. I sent in my Acer v15 nitro for repair about 3-4 weeks ago because of hard drive issues. It got a tiny damage on the hinge en route by the carrier and acer wanted me to pay for a full system fix which I refused seeing as it would cost me half the amount I paid to fix a tiny corner that had no effect on performance. at first I was gonna take my loss and sell it since I couldnt get the hard drive fixed and maybe look into a desktop but decided to replace the hard drive myself and maybe try and cover the hinge. I've been looking at 7200 rpm hard drives and some SSD's and stumbled upon the WD black 2 dual drive which give me both the things I wanted. However I dont know if it would fit into my computer. Do any of you know if it would? Some say  the WD is 8.8 mm others 9.5mm. If you guys have HD suggestions that would help too.

i've updated my bios to v1.11 in support page of acer but after that every time i start my notebookit says no bootable device, then  i get in to the bios make default and save changes  it works fine till i open my computer again. help me what should i do 

Answer:vn7-791 nitro!! bios problem

Have you noticed any issues with the time? May not be the simpliest solution, but if the CMOS is having an issue, you'd see time not keeping up and potentially settings in the BIOS not being saved.
 
Another option is to go in and make sure the HDD is the first boot option. Make sure a USB device (even a printer occasionally can cause problems) or a ODD isn't trying to boot first.
 
We've had the v1.11 published for over a month with a number of downloads, I haven't heard of any issues within our US contact centers on the device. It could a hardware issue unfortunately.

I have been using Primo Pdf to convert my files for many many years without any problems at all. However I have just encountered a problem and really don't know where to start, apart from the obvious.
Using excel 2007 running win 10 and Primo version 5.1.0.2
My file contains five sheets so Primo needs to handle them separately. After Primo converts the first sheet and then prompts me to create another I locate the file and select append then I get this error message
Conversion to PDF failed:The process cannot access the file, because it is being used by another process.
I have no other programs running, to my knowledge, apart from excel and Primo.

I have tried:-
Taking the file out of the directory and placing it on the desktop and only starting it from there not windows explorer and making sure it is not read only
Clearing all caches
Running ccleaner
Deleting the last three pages of the document and only trying to convert two
Rebooting the machine
Running Primo in both streamlined and unstreamlined modes
Uninstalling Primo
Clearing the registry of all traces of Nitro and Primo

Hello! I recently bought my new laptop, the V Nitro and I have already had my fair share of problems with it. Just to put some specifications, it's running a i5 6300QH quad core processor, and a Nvidia Gtx960 4gb.To start off, I have enabled CoolBoost to help with possible heat throttling and I have turned on the maximum performance from the power saving options. With that being said, I am quite confused with the sudden performance drop, when I tested it with the Unigine Heaven, it ran on 60 fps on high settings and on 140 fps on medium assets. Suddenly though the FPS reduces to 10. When that happens I usually reinstal the nvidia drivers, which brings the FPS of maximum 40. It doesn't go back to the 140 like it was. And to clear it up a bit, the laptop has been running below 70 degrees at all times. Anyway, could anyone possibly know the reason for the sudden performance drop? I would be more than happy to know if there's anything I could do to fix it ! Thanks in advance !

Greeting Everyone, I have recently purchased an Acer V17 Nitro Black Edition (specifically the VN7-791G-76MH). Unfortunately my version does not have the 256GB SSD m.2 onboard and only has a 1TB conventional HDD for storage. I believe this is the second tier just below Acer's top of the line model for it's VN7-791G series which is the (VN7-791G-75YT). My question is: if I were to remove the conventional 1TB HDD installed in my laptop and replace it with a 1TB Samsung 850 Pro SSD, would cloning be the only way for me to conveniently transfer my exisiting OS (Microsoft 8.1) to the new SSD that I intend to acquire? on the top tier V17 Nitro (VN7-791G-75YT), what is the m.2 256GB SSD for? is it being used as a cache? or is it where the OS is preloaded? I haven't disassembled or opened my V17 yet, but very am curious what the real use of the m.2 256GB SSD is for on the top line V17 Nitro BEs (VN7-791G-75YTs). I was thinking; if it was where the OS was preloaded and, that if I do find a vacant m.2 slot in my unit, I would put in a 512GB SSD in there in the hopes of maximizing its potential. but then, if that were the case, how would i reload the OS altogether? I apologize for the questions that seem to have spawned from one question to the other folks, just a bit excited in upgrading my unit LoL. would really appreciate your help/thoughts/opinions on the matter. Thank you everyone in...

I have a 17" Aspire V Nitro Black Edition. About a week ago, it wouldn't wake up. It was plugged in, but the power light was not on. I have tried 3 different power cords, hoping the power supply was bad, but that's not it. I have tried resetting the internal battery using the paper clip method, waiting 4-5 minutes and reconnecting power, but that hasn't worked either.

Hi,  Looking to buy an Aspire Nitro (Black Edition) in Canada, and I have a few questions:Does it come in a "regular" edition?Is the optical drive only available on the 17", and is it standard?Can you still get a 4k screen or actual SSD in Canada? (if not, can you add an SSD to either?) I truly wish I could go through the website and customize in order to determine what's available, but I don't think I can - I've never owned an Acer, and I want to be able to get what I want out of the laptop, instead of having everything pre-set.

Answer:Are the Aspire Nitro 15 and 17 available in Canada...

My all but new V15 Nitro Black Edition has twice now had a RTKVHD64.SYS blue screen error. Upon rebooting the sound doesn't work. The first time around a factory restore fixed the issue, I don't fancy doing it again a week later!

Moving up from Dell Laptop to newer hardware and better screen.Old - Dell Inspiron N5030 (2010), New - Aspire V17 Nitro Black (2015?). The Good - Aspire is fast! Wide screen.The Bad - Network jack sucks, who picked that hardware? Needs their heads examined.The Ugly - It's an IPS panel but lacks on-board color controls. That's major disappointing, how did that happen? Win 8.1 Metro GUI - Ugh, 'nough said. Need to find <Num Lock> lock down setting. In the BIOS? How doI I get to the BIOS? ACER Onboard help is typicaly bad, lots of words,not the help I need. Why can't anybody get that right? Could not install Xrite color management - says it needs dot net 4.6; hangs up on install and won't somplete. Drat! Tried to install/update to Win 10. Hangs ups at 99% and won't complete. Drat x 2.

it can be used for caching but you need to set it as caching with Intel software, not an issue if you clone your actual HDD to new SSD; since the software is already installed. in my opinion, not worth since the speed-up will be very very limited using a SSD as primary drive.

Hi guys,I have this problem with my acer nitro (591g). It had nice surround sound when I bought it. Now it shows only two speakers in device manager. I think, that the problem is in windows 10, but I am unable to change it to four speakers. I tried drivers from acer support, dolby digital but still there are only two speakers. Is is possible, that it is only my wrong feeling, that the sound was better and those four speakers are normaly shown as only two?

Remove the RealTek audio drivers and install them again, that seems to solve it most of the time.

Dear Community,I have already tried clicking on the sound icon.Selecting 'Playback devices'Clicking on Tealtek High Definition Audio and then properties.In 'Enhancements' all I have is an unchecked box next to 'Disable all sound effects' and nothing else; so I can find nothing to change. When audio is playing the settings on the sound icon is at 100% but the green bar only registers in the lower section of the bar. Last week the sound was working okay. I have no idea what I may have accidentally done.  I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas. Thanks D.

Dear IronFly, Thanks for all your suggestions. I have just found out what caused the problem. A recent update to the inbuilt Acer sound card apparently gave it priority over Nvidia. By giving priority back to Nvidia, and then restarting the computer, sound has been restored back in all its glory. Hopefully, this solution may help others who chance across a similar problem.

Hi All,
I was just curious just how many member's in here are trying out / using the latest maxthon nitro browser. I mistakenly installed the 'regular' version of maxthon cloud browser..to be quite frank, I hated it. Hopefully I might actually like the nitro version. At least for me, it will have to be significantly better than the latest firefox beta version I enjoy using.
David

Answer:Maxthon Nitro Browser

I've used it and it's a good browser.. IMO.
