Upgrade to Windows 10 on Acer TravelMate P658-MG-7...

Q: Upgrade to Windows 10 on Acer TravelMate P658-MG-7...

I recently bought the Acer TravelMate P658-MG-74QM. According to the shop and to the Acer website it has "Windows 7 Professional (available through downgrade rights from Windows 10 Pro)".Despite the quick setup card showing W10 pictures and the W10 sticker on the laptop, it loaded Windows 7 when I started it for the very first time. Now I am interested in what is the propper way to upgrade to Windows 10? Interestingly the SSDs have two recovery partitions: One with 1 GB and another one with 30 GB. So any chance that Windows 10 is already installed and I only need to switch?

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.)

I have an acer 2413 lm with 256 of Ram as standard. I have tried twice to upgrade 1st time with a 512 card and secondly with two different 512 cards (samsung 512mb 2Rx16 pc2 4200s-444-12-A3) on first atempt computer worked for a few days with unmatced pair ie original 256 and new 512 card. The laptop started playing up and I actually associated it with a virus, so did a clean reboot. This didnt solve the problem and the laptop then stopped completely, only solution was to remove new memory and fit the old which recovered the laptop whilst still slow.

second attemp the laptop ran with both new cards for 3 hours perfectly, then a blue screen appeared with info of which I could only read the top line basically stating that the operating system was closing down to protect the computer. It rebooted and did a scan disk finding numerous bad files and did the same thing almost imediately after log on. At one stage laptop would not restart and only solution was to reinstall the old memory and laptop has worked ok since.

I have found a few references to acer being extremely fussy with its memory type can you advise.

Can I install the i7-640m cpu into my Acer Travelmate 5742-7013 laptop? I did some basic googling and found that someone else was able to do so.

But I trust this site the most. Have never had poor advice from here.

I already have it "tore apart" to replace the speakers and figured I might as well look into the cpu option as well since im already have it apart. Can I do this?

Hi folks,

Ive tried searching throughout the forum and on the internet and havent been very successful so far, but hopefully somone can shed some light on my issue.

My mother has a Acer Laptop 8573T which was shipped with Win7 pro. She has been experiencing some lag and has been generally jealous of my own machine on a ssd, so i thought why not buy her one for christmas!

Having spied her machine that she wasnt that much space, I opted for a Intel 530 180gb.

Having stripped it down and attempting to swap the data, ive quickly realised that Acer ship with 3 hidden partitions.

System Reserved, which i believe is a win7 boot partition and is only 100mb.. so not that big of a deal.
PQSERVICE, which i believe is something to do with the factory back up (which has been burned to dvd's) this is currently taking up 23.8gb of the 27.3 in the partition.
and ACER_IV which is currently around 1gb of the 8gb partitioned but of fat32

Now, because of these extra partitions which was hidden, Ive not filtered this into the size of the ssd capacity. Her original hdd was/is a WD 500gb which obviously is fine space wise.

I have the Intel 520 180gb and i forgot to filter in the PQSERVICE as when I swapped hdd, I swapped from vista to win 7 Ultimate 64bit at the same time with an bought disc which would wipe PQSERVICE.. although it still doesnt have ACER_IV..

ive read mixed feelings if the PQSERVICE partition can be deleted/removed (which would be great as we already have the discs... Read more

A:Acer Travelmate 8573T SSD upgrade hidden partitions PQSERVICE, ACER_IV

Does the PC still have the factory install? If so that is the worst possible install of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilities which interfere with better versions built into Win7. That's why most tech enthusiasts won't even run such an install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Everything needed is in the blue link to get and keep a perfect install just like a million others have done without a single complaint.

Until then you can Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

Hey guys! I own a travelmate 6292, with win 7 pro. I tried to upgrade to win 10 and I had the problem where neither wifi or ethernet connections were available, I tried the command prompt thing, but it didnt resolve anything. Could someone help me? 

A:Acer travelmate 6292 wifi issue windows 10

Suspect you will be out of luck as Acer will not be suppoorting travelmate 6292 (at least according to their website) I also have a 6292. For me, Windows 10 upgraded fine - but then as you say without the wifi working, then on reboot it failed to boot on a driver error, which is where I find myself as we speak! Lucky for me it was a toss-up between throwing the machine out, or trying windows 10 on it! It will succesfully boot in windows 10 safe mode, so may start uninstalling drivers till it boots (or not). It is just possible there is a driver out there somewhere compatible with the wifi, but basically solving the problem is in your court! EDIT: A bit more mucking around - seems windows 10 had run out of hardware resources allocated to other things by the time it gets to the wifi/ethernet chips. I disabled the webcam and touch sensor drivers under device manager/control panel and the wifi started up fine. Looks like we might have to do without a couple of things which i never used anyway..... EDIT2: ...and then windows 10 downloaded some updates and now everything (wifi etc.) has stopped working again..

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?

A: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.

Please...do not interrupt the system anytime that a chkdsk is in progress.

Leave the system alone...when the system has file problems or the hard drive or partition is fouled up...it's normal for the chkdsk to go back toan earlier stage, IME.

When the chkdsk is finished and the system boots into Windows...I suggest that you do the following:

a. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.

b. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter.

c. Reboot the system. The chkdsk /r command will run to completion...before booting into Windows.

Hello well i'll get straight to the point, my friend has a laptop which is broken. it is running windows xp service pack 2, and it is a acer travel mate 2420, it has been dropped on the floor but it still switches on but it goes straight to the boot screen where you can choose from safe mode , safe mode with networking etc. if you press either of these options it just freezes and does noting at all. you cant reconfigure to a last known good configuration either. I tried everything, i was thinking maybe i could change the boot sequence and make it boot from CD first and then use a windows XP cd to reformatt it, but it has a password on the BIOS settings so i cannot change it just yet, but what i wanted to know is would changing the boot sequence help me? i tried putting the windows xp cd disc in when you switch it on but it doesnt load up..
well i would appreciate any advice from you guys =]

-Adam-

A:ACER TravelMate 2420 *HELP*

changing boot settings will only allow you to boot to another device first.

10 to 1 the hard drive got ruined when the laptop was dropped, especially if it was running while it was dropped. The platters in the hard drive spin at about 5400 RPM's and the read/write heads basically float over the platters, believe about 50nm's. in other words imagine a plane flying at about a million miles an hour at an altitude of 50 feet....and then you get dropped, you just left a nice long gash that nothing can live in again (data on the hard drive)

you can run a diagnostic test on the hard drive to be sure.

but to get it to boot from the cd, just need to push the right key to open the boot selection menu when its loading the bios. F12 on most laptops, but forgot on acers, might be F11

I was planning to get a laptop but due to budget constraint I have kind of decided on Acer Travelmate 4335. But I wish to install Vista on it rather than the Linux it comes with. My problem is I am not quite sure about the built in graphics card it comes with. I don't need a very high end graphics card, but I won't like it to be the same as my age old desktop (which can't run vista aero). So if anyone is using this laptop on Vista, pls let me know how does it perform ...
 

A:Acer Travelmate 4335

Vista will slow that machine down far too much. XP would be a far better choice for an OS on that machine. Vista is a resource hog, and that laptop isn't going to do well with it.

Just removed Home Premium and reformatted drive and removed EISA configuration partition.

Now when I try to install Ultimate, it says "No drivers for HDD", its a Hitachi 160GB,

Any information will be appreciated.

A:Acer Travelmate driver

Probably referring to the SATA driver, which you should be able to get from Acer. If you can find it just put it on a USB key (if you have one) and when you get o the part in the install when it asks about installing drivers point it at the USB key.

Hi All.

I have owned a Travelmate 290 for 3 years. I have not had any trouble with it in that time until now. The lap top will run for a time then the screen will start to flicker, the touchpad will become erratic and the HDD light will come on. Sometimes after a few minutes the laptop will return to normal, sometimes it will lock up with the HDD light on and the power light off (The laptop lives mainly on the mains but these symptoms also occur when it is on battery power). The only way to get out of this situation is to unplug the power supply and remove the battery. I have scanned the laptop for viruses and spyware. None were found.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in Advance

Anthony

3 suggestions:

1) Monitor your CPU/MB/HDD temperatures. It could be overheating.
2) Check the Event Viewer in Windows
3) Get Process Explorer. See what is taking up your CPU during the problem.

Process Explorer is free:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/processexplorer.mspx

Speed Fan is free (temp monitoring):

Come back and post any significant warnings in Event Viewer, what is using all your CPU (if anything) during the issue, and your temperatures.

Hello. My laptop TM8172 has BIOS v.1.16 since I bought this last year. On the Acer website is 1.14. So it's mean that I have incorrect version and should downgrade it or have the latest version which is not posted on the web ?

Hello all.
My boss is having problems with her Acer Travelmate C104TCi (tablet pc). She was working in a design program when Windows popped up with a message saying that it was going into hibernation mode. Then after a 5 second countdown the computer shut down. Now when we try and turn the computer back on it beeps 4 times then powers off again. No bios or load screens or anything. My first thought was that the battery was dead and it shut down automatically to save her data but it's been charged and there is no change.

System Specs.
PIII 900
265mb RAM
40gb HD
10/100Base T & Wireless 802.11b
Running Windows XP Tablet PC Edition

Hi folks, greetings from a newbie on the 'sunny' [joke] island of Alderney, in the English Channel Islands. Wonder if anyone out there has seen this 'lulu'?
My TravelMate has decided that the letter between \ - forward slash - and x on the keyboard is now no longer a letter, but it causes a green 'Volume \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' sign to appear at the base of the screen.
Let's face it, it must have been me hitting something I really shouldn't , as I know that I'm dumb but , every combination of 'ctrl', 'alt', etc., doesn't seem to work and it's no good Googling it, as I can't type the letter into the line!!
A very sad old fool would much appreciate any feedback on this one.
Thanx in advance
Aurigny

Hello,
I found the site / thread on password removal through google while trying to fix a freinds laptop and figured I would throw out my problem to see if anyone has a solution. I've read through excessive amounts of dell related inquiries yet very little on acer.
My friend has an Acer Travelmate 4100 notebook that has a bios and hdd password on it. It was from a friend who got it from a dead grandmother or something like that so there is no shot and finding the password. I managed to successfully remove the bios password by pulling the cmos battery yet the hdd password remains. From what I can tell this is due to it being written to eeprom or something as such.
There is no need to save the information on the HD as he is planing on giving it to another friend after cleaning it up. I would like to know if there is a way to do this that: 1) Doesn't cost bling bling. 2) Doesn't use a floppy drive to boot from as I don't have an external one. It seems that the hd lock is preventing me from even booting to a cd. 3) Doesn't require soldering. I can pull a notebook apart and put it back together, but I get twitchy when thinking about roasting the mobo.
Fire back with any other information that you need.
Cheers,
Djrealmz
