Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

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

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?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

Hey There

First of all: I'm a studend, so I can't speek good english, cause I live in Switzerland (plz write in German if you can )

So my Problem:

I've found a Acer Aspire 5920G with Windows Vista. This was so slow and annoying . So I deleded the whole OS and installed Win 7 Home Premium x64. Now I'm searching some drivers for my Notebook. My biggest Problem is the sound driver.
In Vista, there was a tool called "Acer eAudio Manager". I want to install it, because you can switch the equalizer to movie, music and game (and it sounds awesome with the bassbooster=D). I've downloaded the driver from the website and there was a error:

"This software can only be installed in authorized machine"

what can I do to install this tool? Some other tools, like acer power management or acer enet management, works great.

I thought I ask in this forum, because there were some good topics about the mouspad and synaptic of the 5920G (wich helped me=D)

I hope you understand my question and can help me

Greetings

option 2 custom install i managed to delete partitions which made my restore discs effectivley scrap.

realizing there was no way back, i had to instal windows 7

all went silky smooth untill the device radeon 4000 series had code 10 cannot start

i let windows 7 update this device - rebooted...the screen never came back...the machine was ON,signal up and everything but no raster, just a mouse curser.

hmm... rebooted in safe mode, rolled back driver....screen ok but still the graphics 4570 is code 10 and cannot start.

so i inserted the acer upgrade dvd
and ran all EXCEPT the amd puma driver
rebooted
all ok
then i ran the puma driver, rebooted and the screen never came on...backlighting but no picture.

Holding down the power button i just turned it off, rebooted, pressed f7 or 8 whatever key for safe mode and chose
ENABLE LOW-RESOLUTION VIDEO (640x480)
enter...
starting windows...4/3 aspect

Hi all,

Firstly, thanks a lot in advance for helping me out - I've been through what feels like nearly all the other threads in here looking for a solution and I am overwhelmed by the generosity and helpfulness of people here.

So here's my problem. I upgraded my Acer Aspire One netbook (A0150) to Windows 7. This went fine, had a few issues getting Windows 7 SP1 and Microsoft Office SP2 to update via Windows Update (several failures) but got there after multiple tries.

However, since then I've been getting regular, random BSODs. I've tried most of the ideas suggested - ran memtest86 about 5 times with no faults. I had Avast installed so I uninstalled that and changed to MSE, but still get BSODs. I've run sfc /scannow (no problems detected). I've also done a clean reinstall of Windows 7 but get the same problems.

So I've reached the limit of my knowledge - any and all help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks again

Steve

- Windows 7 Professional 32bit
- Full retail version

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire L3600 that I would like to upgrade to Windows 7 preferably 64-bit.

I have add a look on the Acer support site and the only driver available is for the sound card. Looking on this forum I see some people have installed Windows 7 but are unable to get a new drive up working with the wireless LAN card.

Does this mean that this model is basically not upgradable? Or as someone else found some tricks around this area where they have found some drivers work.

I am not going to attempt anything until I can satisfy myself that an upgrade will go smoothly.

Hello everyone, this is my first post here. I looked around this website and I found that the people in here are very kind. Anyway, I installed Windows 8.1 Professional onto my Acer Aspire 6935g and I found a few problems:

- The brightness does not change at all wether I press FN and Right or Left, or do it from Windows 8. It doesn't change.

- The sound and bass sounds perfect after installing drivers but every now and then it fuzzes, so for instance, when an error appears, it makes a "fzzzzzz" sound and it's annoying. (I did something to it and it might be working fine now, I have to wait and see.)

Those are the problems I am having at the moment, I have to wait and see if I get more problems on Windows 8. I have it dual-booted with Windows 7 just in case if anything goes wrong and thank lord I did. I am typing this in Windows 7 right now because Windows 8 is having some problems. Please can anyone help?

I was able to change the "Default_Page_URL" value to "Google.com" under "HKEY_ LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" and the "Start Page" value in there was already set to "http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd={SUB_PRD}&clcid={SUB_CLSID}&pver={SUB_PVER}&ar=home"

Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.

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?

A:Can I upgrade my Acer Aspire XC-705?

your model has:2 SATA 3.0 port1 SATA 2.0 port so this is the first issue you will encounter, not enough ports if you keep the DVD drive connected. the biggest issue is the lacking of RAID (hardware) support from the BIOS (at least i can't find any reference to this option on the BIOS). so, not worth in my opinion, since you must rely on a software RAID 1 enviroment.

Hey all,

I was wondering if at all it was possible to upgrade my Acer Aspire 5810T laptop.

Help and advice appreciated
 

A: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

How can I upgrade RAM in Acer Aspire Z1-611?

A:upgrade RAM in Acer Aspire Z1-611

There isn't much information about how to do this... But, essentially this machine has a single memory slot that comes from the factory with 4GB, which you can remove and replace with an 8GB module. Suppliers like Crucial and Kingston offer the correct specification. However, the hard part is opening up the unit and replacing the memory. It's not straightforward, which explains why Acer don't provide instructions. It's probably best done by an experienced computer technician- but for those wanting to do the upgrade themselves here are the steps: 1. With the unit turned off and disconnected find a table to work at. Turn the unit over, face down, and place it on something soft that won't scratch the screen or generate static. A wool blanket or something like that should do.2. Prise off the small square white plastic cover above the stand. You should be able to do this with your fingers - don't use a screwdriver because you'll scratch the plastic surface.3. With the cover off, you'll see the HDD. The are two Philips screws that hold the HDD and its caddy into the back of the unit. Unscrew the two screws and keep them safe.4. Slide the HDD across, you will feel it come away from the SATA interface. You will then be able to lift the HDD out. Handle it with care, put it with the screws somewhere safe.5. Now to prise the back off... You don't need any tools for this. Looking round the gap between the front and back mouldings, gently pull each mould away from each other. Sl... Read more

Hi - Firstly, I'm not a computer geek, although I'm reasonably literate. My Acer Aspire 5742 (bought May 2011) has suffered a hard disk failure.

When I bought it, I made the Acer eRecovery disks and kept them safe. On buying a new hard drive last week (exact Hitachi 500GB model) I find recovery disk no.1 boots up Windows 7 ok but does not recover the file structure as I get the message "insufficient disk space to copy files".

I understand that Acer disks are partitioned into 3 areas and the recovery disks cannot see the area where the recovery files have to be copied, and hence the Windows message. I researched this on the 'net and find Acer produce a partitioning software file that once could be downloaded. However, I see that file is no longer available on the 'net and on speaking to Acer they want me to part with 80 for them to provide technical support. I would have thought the partitioning software should have been included in the recovery disks but it seems not so.

Can anyone help in providing me with a suitable solution without forking out 80? Many thanks.

I recently purchased two 1GB SODIMM PC2700 DDR 200 pin to upgrade the memory on my Acer Aspire 5003wlmi laptop.

The screen stays blank and only the green power light stays on). After consulting with Acer's support, they concluded that my motherboard does not support the chips because I need to update my BIOS.

I understand how sensitive updating the BIOS is and want to do this properly. I downloaded the zip file provided by Acer's support site for my laptop, which included WinPhlash, but do not know which file to flash to update. There is a file that I think is the update called ZL53A32.WPH.

Hello all,

I have searched and can't find this specific topic. My Acer Aspire One ZA3 came with XP installed and I want to upgrade to Windows7. Has anybody tried it and is it possible thanks. I have my own copy of Windows7 (OEM Disk), but am not sure about the disk structure Acer use when they deliver the machines.

Any advice of help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Yes you can, as long as the specs match with your current RAM all DDR3 PC3L-12800 memory stick will work. You don't need to pay attention to brand names as they all do the same thing, Samsung, Kingston, Hynix and Crucial are few brands you could consider.
