I've been editing on a (windows based) desktop and now want and need to transition to notebook computers. I've been assured that notebook computers are now showing specs that can rival any desktop based system (if you have the $$$). Specially HP's Z-Book series which is built with video and content creation in mind. However, due to budget constraints I am looking at the Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition as a possible candidate. It sports a fast i7 processor, with 16GB RAM and an Nvidia GTX-860M video card. My question is that do the more compact M-series of Nvidia …

Hello! My friend has Acer Aspire 9305WSMi laptop which does no longer boot when powered, it only gives error message with sound, which is three beeps: One longer, two short. Screen does not react a bit, attached external screen does not react at all. Harddrive does a little of work after the beeps, then the laptop does nothing. Removing battery has no effect, as well as removal of DVD-drive. I tried "nulling static charge" from the motherboard by holding the powerbutton down for >30 seconds while battery and powercord was removed, but it had no effect. I've tried to find …

Very recently, I let my laptop (HP) battery get too low, and it died on me. Usually, upon plugging in the adaptor, everything starts right back up again. However, this time, the laptop runs, but all I can see is a black screen. I can even hear the little chime when windows starts (vista), but all I can see is black. I don't think it's a backlight issue, as I the black screen still emits a sort of "glow". I know I need a new battery, but as long as it's plugged into the power supply, shouldn't it work fine? …

I read the thread about this that was about 13 pages long, but I saw people were saying to start a new thread if you have a problem. The laptop = Acer Aspire 5532 The problem = Since yesterday, when I turn the computer on after about 3 seconds the screen goes dark. I can still (barely) see the screen, but it's very dark. I've tried the 60 seconds of holding the power button unplugged with no luck. Last night i was playing around with the cords near the screen and somehow got it to work for a few hours. …

Hi Guys, I have a 9301 Laptop which whilst using it (just on internet) the screen went multi coloured almost as if it had crashed or there was an issue with graphics card - not sure. I then obviously had to power cycle it, but was the screen remained black with nothing at all, but i can hear both the HDD & CD starting up, so I can only asume that it is not totally knackered, but i was wondering if anyone knew what it may be? I should also mention that I am slightly technical as I deal with …

Hello, I have a Acer Aspire 5920 that currently has a 15.4" display, which has very low contrast and and low resolution(1280x800). I just recently had my old 17" Toshiba crap out on me, and it has a absolutely gorgeous screen, high contrast and the resolution is (1440x900). Now what in trying to do is to replace my Acer's 15.4" LCD with the 17" from my old Toshiba. Now before I get bashed saying it cant be done, I have already experimented with it, with very pleasing results. The Acer's inverter powered the back lights just fine, and when I …

Well this laptop is having a problem. When you turn it on it won't boot (black screen) and then shuts down then boots up, then shuts down, then boots up and so forth. It has a Pentium 4. I took out a intel centrino chip from another laptop and the Acer turned on and stayed on the screen backlight also turned on but still no image on screen. Now the laptop did not turn on and off but instead you can't turn it off unless disconnect power. Thinking it was a busted CPU I bought a new Pentium 4 but …

A friend brought me their computer hoping I could fix it. No signal to the monitor. Tried new video card, did not help. Since Acer used a 250 watt power supply to run a 2ghz, 2 gig Ram, duo processor, I considered that perhaps the power supplied might be enough to run the led lights and the fan but not start the processor, so replaced power supply with a 450 watt supply and tried again, (from Frys) wouldnt even bring the lights or the fan on, returned that, got another 380watt power supply and put that in, the lights are …

The video playback on my Acer Aspire 751 Netbook is poor (choppy, lagging). It is configured with 2GB of RAM and has a integrated graphics card running on Vista Home Basic. I tried to download a newer version of the driver for the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 500 but the one downloading shows less up to date than what I have. I know this is a piddly little machine but was hoping to be able to watch a YouTube video or stream a movie now and again. I also get the same poor results when connecting o a TV through …

OK, so here's a simple question (haha famous last words!):;) When replacing a hard drive in a desktop, the original recovery disks should still work, right? That's what I assumed anyway. My plan was to replace the hard drive, load the OS w/the same factory discs it came with, and voila. I'm not posting any specs because 1 - this is a project, so there's no rush, and 2 - it's sooooo hot today I don't feel like it (the project computer is in an non-airconditioned zone - yikes! I do remember that's it's an Acer something - probably from …
