Hi guys! My 6930g wont boot, its giving me a black screen saying

For Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCIE Ethernet Controller v1.0.0.12(2008/07/26)

check cable connection!
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.

And sometimes "operating system not found" come's up under it.

I've pulled out the HD and put it back in and still the same. I've tried running the recovery disk I made but it doesn't tell me it's just going to restore the C: drive (it's just blank) and I don't want to lose the data on my other partition. I run system restore through F11 and it booted once but now wont let me run it again. I have done a search on here and can't find anything.

I'm running Vista.

Any help please??

Cheers guys!!!
 

Answer:acer 6930g wont boot

The PXE message just means that it does not see a cd in the tray and does not see an operating system on the HD so it is trying to boot from the last option a network (which you are not on).

You are able to boot to CD so the problem is with the HD.

Try rebooting and hitting F12 during the acer logo screen--do you get a boot Order Menu? If so see if the HD is listed and choose its number to try to boot. Do you get the no OS error?

Hi !
Problems with bsod in the last 2-3 days.
Anyone can help?thank you

Answer:bsod acer aspire 6930g

Looks pretty straightforward: your network adapter. I suggest removing the drivers in Device Manager, and installing a fresh copy.

If you can find an updated version on the computer manufacturer's site, use it.

Hello,

I have changed my graphic card from ATI HD4650 DDR2 to NVIDIA FX 770M DDR3. The OS started to give video_tdr_failure so I decided to do a fresh install. Eve after fresh install i still get the error randomly, may it be when I start firefox, or close mediaplay classic etc. I run benchmark tests ,memory test but I could not find anything. My temps are good, when I game it is around 80C-degree. The thing is the driver I install is from laptopvideo2go with modified inf since the original drivers from nvidia can not detect the card. Used latest driver version. Changed the firmware of the to latest one which was no help at all for this case. Any help would be appriciated, I may return the card if it is not driver related and the card is actually at the end of its life.

My system is:
CPU: X9100 C0 Stepping @ 3.06GHz 1.125V
VGA: NVidia FX 770M 512MB DDR3
RAM: 2x2 DDR2 800MHz 5-5-5

Answer:Acer 6930G with FX770M video_tdr_failure

Please return the card. Having to use specially modded drivers to detect the card isn't a good solution.

Answer:Driver_Power_state_failure Acer Aspire 6930g

Your Xtreme N Gigabit Router doesn't have drivers installed (?I didn't even think that they needed drivers - and don't have one on mine?) Are you having any troubles with yours?

The BSOD's point to NETw5s32.sys - a component of your Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN adaptor. Please do the following:
- download the latest Win7 driver for your Intel wireless device from http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx
- uninstall the current wireless drivers from your system using Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
- install the freshly downloaded drivers
- wait for another BSOD

Also, Please update or remove these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager. Please use the following instructions to locate the most current drivers:

Quote:




How To Find Updated Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Hi
My son has an Acer Aspire 6930g running on xp.
Upto a couple of weeks ago he was happily running his blu rays using cyberlink 10 powerdvd when he announce that they no longer played. No disc found. Normal Dvds continue to run ok.
I have tried uninstalling the programme and reinstalling but that didnt seem to work.
Before i conclude that maybe the blu ray sensor has gone is there anything else i could try (- yes i have also tried cleaning the sensor and blowing away any possible dust) Do get suspicious that it all happens as the promotions for powerdvd13 flood in each time we open powerdvd lol.

Hi, (first post in any forum so far)

I got this notebook (Acer Aspire 6930G - the version with the dvd-drive) for around 7 years now and I am happy that I chose to buy it.
For about a year ago it started shutting down, when putting it under some workingload (games). I found out pretty quickly that the reason was due to heat. So I simply opened it (since the warranty already expired) and cleaned it up and the problem was solved.
A few weeks later however the problem started again. To my surprise however it seemed to shut down without any reason. The only connection I was able to detect was the fact that it only happens while playing games.
But I did not care about my laptop anymore, because I saved up enouth money to build myself a desktop.
Long story short. I need it again to play some games
The Laptops hardware is pretty much the same. I only added a SSD in the second HDD-slot and installed Windows 10 on it.
Now what I actually want to ask:
I am pretty sure, that this problem is caused by my nVidia Geforce 9600m GT.
These are the points that make me think of this:
- the PC does not really "shut down" more like freeze with a blackscreen on (and the only way to exit that state is to hold down the power-button :x)

(sorry for the really long post but its kinda complicated)Okay to start with I bought the acer almost a year ago. Its still under guarantee but I would rather not have to take it in. So on friday I came home from School turned my Acer on (it was working perfectly the night before) and I got the blue screen of death. I tried everything, safe mode etc etc. I loaded up my windows 7 home premium CD and selected repair. It worked for perhaps a hour before telling me it failed to repair it. Next I decided to try and reinstall windows. i to the point where it asked for the Cd key. I typed it in just to be told it was invalid. Once I had done all that it no longer does the blue screen of death but it boots up the laptop you see the windows 7 logo then the screen went black and nothing could be seen APART from the cursor. This morning when I tried again now I just get a black screen then it restarts again.What is wrong? I can't figure it out at all!!!

I just bought my Acer a couple of weeks ago and I have a question. Because I bought it after July I will receive a free copy of windows 7 when it releases. My question is, I want to do a clean install on windows 7 64 bit home premium. I have never loaded a new operating system before (I have only used the recovery disks) so I have a couple questions. My first question is when I install the clean install do I have to download and install the current drivers I am using on my computer? Video card, sound card, ect, or will windows automatically recognize my current hardware? If I do have to find them myself where can I find them? Will they be on the recovery disk Acer gave me? If that?s the case how can I only load the drivers and not windows vista? I am sure I can get them from Acers website but I am looking for the easiest way. Would ?windows update? find them for me?

Also my last question is there are a couple of applications that were previously loaded on the computer when I first started it up. The 2 main ones are Microsoft student office 2007 and Acers ?empower? program (Erecovery, Eaudio, ect.) I use both of these programs and I don?t want to lose them. Also because office came preinstalled I don?t have a physical disk. Any help would be appreated. Thank you for your time

Answer:Clean Install Of Windows 7 on Acer 6930G Questions

You can get all of the newest drivers from Acer's website. Acer Service & Support

It appears that the have the empower program available there as well. If you purchases MS Office Student they should have given you a disk or at least a product code for it. You should be able to contact Acer and get a physical copy if you cannot find it on their website.

Rather than cleaning our Aunt's laptop (full of junk) handed down to our son for BIG school, I did an alt+F10 Restore to Factory settings and started again. Windows Vista and Acer had to do its thing while it reset... I have connected to the router and I have wifi confirmed as connected... Windows updated and the homepage (Www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/home) even has the new Acer 'Switch' advertised and the dragon (some new game).... But the top isn't loaded right, it has 'errors on page' and other websites don't load at all.   TCP and DNS are ticked for 'automatic' too - spotted this on online forums so checked that. Any ideas how there's wifi but without a working Internet connection?! help much appreciated!

I upgraded it to IE 11 and all was right with the world again. [Well after several hundred updates that is.]

My system is roughly 5 months old. I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to 7 home premium. There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to deep hibernation. The only way to wake it was to unplug the power from the tower. I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers, to finally reinstalling everything. No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer. I just got it back from Acer's repair depot. They had to replace the motherboard, hard drive, and fans on the system. They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue. I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold, the hibernation thing started again! It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory. Now it seems stable running Vista. I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell. Is it me or is Acer systems flakey?

Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows 7 without having to format every week? I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly. Sometimes it won't even turn on. Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows 7?

Answer:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

I know brands use to say this as a "safe" limit, since I also have an Acer netbook here (AO722) that has an official 4GB limit, but I searched forums when I bought it and people could use a 8GB memory with no problem, and I bought a 8GB memory to use there, and it worked really fine So... is it possible to use 16GB (2 x 8GB) with this notebook ?

Answer:Acer E1-421 RAM upgrade

Most of the memory sites sell an 8 GB upgrade so it will most likely take 8. I think the only way you will find if it will take 16 is borrow or buy 16GB and try it.

Question: Acer CPU Upgrade

I'm hoping to be able to upgrade the CPU in my ageing and overworked Acer Aspire G600p Desktop computer currently with a Pentium 4 2Ghz socket 478 on an Acer j87m board. Does anyone know what the maximum performance I can upgrade to? I'm seeing on eBay that 3Ghz P4's are very cheap but I don't know if this computer supports Hyperthreading.
Any and all help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Acer CPU Upgrade

The fastest P4 you can throw in there is 3.4 GHz. But if you could find a P4 Extreme 3.4 GHz then it would be a bit faster. That is your best bet.

Hi I'm planning on upgrading my Acer tc-705 with a MSI gtx 750ti. I've done hours and possibly weeks of research seeing whether this card will work with my pre built PC or not. I've come to the conclusion that it will work but its better to upgrade my PSU sooner than later. Can I have some second opinions here on the Acer community site. Do you guys think I can run this card for at least 6 months?I have a 300w fsp 300 60(tha1) PSU with 8A on the 12v1 rail and 14a on the 12v2.

Answer:Acer Tc-705 Gpu Upgrade Help

A few people have reported that the 750ti and everything worked fine with that exact power supply on the same motherboard.  The wattage should be fine with FSP 300W.  I have that power supply too (and same motherboard) and was torn about what to do.  I went ahead and just upgraded the power supply........i.e. I chickened out.  I found a 450W Seasonic 80 plus gold on a black friday sale for $53.00 shipped. The fan on my FSP 300W was starting to get a little loud (not really loud, but annoying tone) so it wasn't that hard of a decision in the end. I'm not familiar the size of the MSI version of the card as to whether it will fit or not.. Edit: but I didn't buy the 750ti

Question: Acer Upgrade Kit

I got a free upgrade for windows 7 for my mom's laptop but it wont install
it gets past the checking step and then restarts and says its reverting back to vista but it doesnt say exactly why

when i got my laptop's free upgrade from hp it took a couple of hours but it installed perfectly and i didnt need to backup my files so wtf is wrong with acer?

Answer:Acer Upgrade Kit

Your best bet is a clean install booting from the Windows 7 DVD included, the disk with the official MS license sticker giving the Product Key. Plug in ethernet, Select "Connect to the Internet during Install" to get the latest drivers/Updates during install, then Custom, then Advanced drive tools to format the HD and install.

Of course, you always need to back up files (ask your Mom which) when installing/Upgrading, and gather program installers/disks ahead of time because you will need to reinstall programs.

Afterwards, you can install anything else needed from the apps/drivers CD included, however the Win7 DVD is pretty much driver-complete and newer drivers come in on Windows Updates.

Your problem sounds like a failing In-Place Upgrade, which is not a clean install and carries over corruption from Vista. It may be the machine is doing you a favor by refusing to in-place Upgrade. A clean install is always better.

As it says on the tin. I know the general benefits to going to SSD over HDD, which is why I'm considering it.

I want to know two things, but before that here's my Laptop's specs:

Acer Aspire E1-771-6496
i5-3230M 2.60GHz (3.2GHz overclocked)
6GB DDR3 RAM
500GB HDD
WIN10 (Upgraded from WIN7)

What I want to know:

1) Are there SSDs made for Aspire laptops?
2) Can I copy the data from HDD boot drive (including the OS) to the new SSD?
A little backstory: The reason why I'm seriously considering this is because last Christmas my Computer decided that then was the perfect time to have a stroke and my copy of WIN7 got corrupted.

DAMN YOU PAVLOV!!!

I had no means of backing up my data because I was caught completely unawares. Now, 8 months later, I am determined to have that never happen again!

It's possible there's a delay due to the postal strike, and Acer are simply delaying UK orders for the time being.Or it's also possible there's just a backlog of orders to work through, and yours is in a queue somewhere, with the e-mail just being sent out as something automated.

Hi all. This is my first time using this forum, so if i'm in the wrong place, please say so. Thanks in advance.
I've recently purchased the Acer Aspire V3-572G Laptop, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 1TB, 15.6", Silver. I want to upgrade the RAM from the 8GB to 16GB as I use rendering software a lot which is very CPU intensive. I understand this laptop comes with two RAM slots that are currently filled with 2 x 4GB modules. I want to replace these with 2 x 8GB modules to make the total 16GB RAM.
It seems there is very little information available online for this laptop as if it's a new model or one where very few units were manufactured. So if anyone knows much about this model, that would be good.
I would really like to know what sort of RAM module pair I should purchase. I understand there are different types of RAM such as DDR3 DDR3L and different speeds. Some people have suggested if the module physically fits, it will work while others say I must be very careful with which type of RAM module I buy. I am very unsure on the exact module that is compatible with this laptop so if anyone knows or can advise on what modules to buy, I would be very grateful.
Thanks a lot, Dan.

Answer:Possible to upgrade Acer Aspire CPU?

The best way to increase performance in this laptop is to increase system memory to the max allowed. If you are running a 32-bit version of Windows, 4GB total memory is allowed. For a 64-bit Windows, 8GB is max allowed. There are a total of 2 memory slots for two 2GB DDR3 1066 modules or two 4GB DDR3 1066 modules. Upgrading CPU's if possible, won't do much for increased performance

Hi, I have Acer Aspire E1-510, windows 10, intel celeron processor N2820, 2 GB DDR3.  Since I bought it, it was slow for me. I was wondering if I upgrade it to 8 GB of RAM, will it make a difference in speed? Or it depends on the type of processor mostly?  I need an advice.

Answer:Acer Aspire E1-510 - if I upgrade it with 8 GB RAM...

Don't think that one can do 8gb but 4gb I think. Thought I read had 2gb on board so can add 2gb or 4gb stick for 6gb total? No 6gb ram sticks for it and 8gb stick won't live with the 2gb on board happily.  Speed is several things, CPU, ram and hard drive. Of all of these currently the ssd hard drives make the biggest noticeable difference. So if you have a choice the ssd hard drive will help the most. Why? Windows still uses a cache for data on hard drive and programs are larger. Faster drive speeds up windows in both these operations. Next 4gb is recommended for Win10. CPU you have is not upgradable so it is what it is but compared to those of several years ago is quite powerful.

Based on the message you're seeing, it's likely that you have the default Windows USB 3.0 drivers installed and the drivers for the specific USB 3.0 chipset you have installed in your system. We would recommend going to the website for your computer or motherboard manufacturer and downloading the specific USB 3.0 chipset drivers for your computer. Once this is updated the drive should then get detected correctly and will allow the drive to show up in Windows Explorer." The USB controller is an "Intel (R) USB 3.0 Extensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)" however, when I download the driver update it says that I do not meet the minimum system requirements and it will not install. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi:
For the past week or so, I started using old Acer with XP Media which is very slow to load any of programs, particularly I.E. 8/SP3.

I looked at Local Disk/C and found only 34 GB total size with 512 Ram. I plan to upgrade 1 GB Ram/memory. However, I have no idea of upgrade to HD, 75 GB. I want to use 'External HD' as much, because I'm no way to tinker deep inside PC, such as HD, although I did upgrade Ram on a different PC with a success.

Should I use 'External HD' to compensate it? If possible, what sort of External HD would be recommendable?

Thanks for your help in advance.
 

Answer:Upgrade HD in Old Acer PC using External HD?

If you think it is slow now, it is going to be REALLY slow when using an external drive. USB 2 drives are very slow compared to an internal drive.

If you want a faster drive, then install an internal drive OR take it to a shop and have it done. Externals are really for storing data files, image backups, etc; not for installing programs.

I bought this PC earlier this year but I'm getting annoyed that more and more games are coming out that I cant play on it. Rainbow Six Siege runs terribly with texture ripping and low frame rates that would make it look like it was running on win95.
Is there anyway I could upgrade this machine of do I have to buy/build a new one from scratch.

I have installed 8.2 GB of ram. I need to upgrade the graphics card and CPU - where do I start?
I have:

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500/5100 Series

This is an 'all in one' monitor with the PC built into it. Someone recommended the nVidia GTS 250 but I am not sure where to start???
SOS!!!
Thanks

Answer:Acer Z5610 - upgrade help please?

Most reviews that I have read state that there is no scope for upgrades. In many ways it is similar to a laptop where upgrading the CPU and graphics is generally not on.

Sorry to rehash this thread, the other one was "solved" but didn't answer my questions I was reading up in this forum becuase there is a lightly used Acer Aspire TC-705 for sale in my area for really cheap and was possibly going to upgrade it and give it to a friend.  I saw that the 750 Ti was a choice people went with in this rig because it is small and also didn't need power connectors from a PSU. I also saw that a guy had a GTX 960 (i assume mini/single fan) in it, and said that he had the same MOBO as this pc, it was unclear to me weather he had the exact same PC though, so maybe his was in a different (bigger?) case. Really what I am trying to figure out (without actually buying the PC first) is what is the biggest GPU I could fit in here. I do plan on upgrading the PSU to an extra 550W that I upgraded from in my personal rig.  Has anyone had anyluck putting a 900 series or 1000 series Nvidia card in one of these with success? or is 750Ti the best that will fit in here?

Hi Guys,

It was my birthday yesterday and i had a brand new 22" Samsung 2ms Screen

I'm looking to upgrade my computer since i can't afford a new one, and the best possible upgrade for me is a new graphics card. The one i'm running atm is a intel 128 express chip set. Which isnt a dedicated chip. Atm I have:

The Acer Veriton 7700GX ,
Intel® 915G chipset with PCI-Express integrated graphics system.
CPU Speed: 2925 MHz.
Maximum Memory Capacity: 4096 MB
Currently Installed Memory: 1024 MB
Available Memory Slots: N.A.
Number of Banks: 4
Dual Channel Support: N.A.
CPU Manufacturer: GenuineIntel
CPU Family: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.93GHz Model 4, Stepping 1
CPU Speed: 2925 MHz
I have been suggested to get Nivida GeForce 8800 GT But after reading the spec for this it seems my Pc won't run it due to the fact i only have 300w Psu

I was just wondering wether anyone could point me in the right direction of a website that will show me compatible dedicated graphics cards or suggest one i should try?

Im looking to spend 100, possibly £150

This is my first post so any help will be greatly appreciated
 

Answer:Upgrade Acer 7700GX

Almost any new decent gaming video card will need more the a 300 watt power supply.

Hello everybody, I recently purchased an acer aspire t3 710 and now I would like to upgrade the gpu. I stupidly bought a card much to big and I was wondering if anybody could help recommend a card that would fit? I'm not too bothered about price or upgrading my psu I'd just like o know my options . I've seen a few posts like this but they're all a little outdated and I'd like to know now that there are more advanced cards out. Thanks for any responses

Answer:Acer aspire t3-710 gpu upgrade

I don't know if you have the same space than me, but in my ATC-710, I have installed a EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 04G-P4-6253-RX Ti SC GAMING, 4GB GDDR5, wich is, to my knowledge, the smallest of the middle-high end GPU at 5.7 inches long. But, keep in mind that you need tu upgrade your power supply to a minimum of 500w.
