VN7-792G and Speed Shift Technology

Q: VN7-792G and Speed Shift Technology

With Skylake Intel introduced Speed Shift Technology(SST), it's interesting especially for mobile devices. But unfortunately it's disabled on VN7-792G. For those who don't know what SST is, it allows processor change frequencies more quickly to allow quicker responses from low power idle state. It would be nice if Acer enabled SST in next BIOS update.

When will Dell enable Intel Speed Shift via a BIOS update? All the BIOS update requires is requires is writing 1 to MSR 0x770!
Speed Shift was fully supported by Intel and Microsoft in 2015 (1 year ago!). It makes the CPU much more responsive (particularly in gaming and real-time tasks) and costs nothing.
In the meantime, anyone can run software manually to enable Speed Shift but you need to relaunch the software every time your computer sleeps or turns off, so that is inconvenient. But the boost in performance is worth the effort.
I have manually enabled SpeedShift via software such as ThrottleStop or just writing 1 to MSR 0x770.
Dell - can you get Speed Shift into the next BIOS revision?!?!

The latest version 1.10.4 as of today disabled the Speed Shift technology after I updated it.
The original version came with the machine was 1.07.03 IIRC had SS enabled.
I tried to downgrade to 1.07.03 but it wouldn't let me.
So Dell please update the BIOS with SS enabled or give me a way to downgrade the bios.

My CPU is Intel Celeron Quad Core J1900 and i have tried testing enabling and disabling it in the bios what i found is

with it off my CPU always rests at 1999.99Mhz regardless of CPU load maxed or idle
And with it on it goes from 2000.xx up to 2417.83Mhz depending on CPU load (1% or above seems to make it click to 2.41Ghz and it seems "Intel Burst Frequency" is set to 2.42Ghz in my CPU specifications on the intel website
Does that mean turning it off just makes it always 2Ghz and never any faster? and with it on it changes between 2Ghz and 2.41Ghz

So which would be better for gaming? a more consistant CPU peed or ever changing fast/normal speed CPU speed? Off? or On?

A:Intel Enhanced speed step technology on or off? celeron j1900...

Leave it on. There is nothing gained with it off.

My old keyboard was refusing to re-initialize after the peripheral reset during win 7 boot. It's about a decade old, so I just assumed it was dead. I replaced it with my wireless keyboard I use for working on computers, Ms laser 8000. My keyboard now initializes fine, but shift L and Shift E are non functional. Sticky keys is off, along with all the other accessibility features. The keys work fine without shift pressed, and shift works with very other key.

I'm out of ideas, anyone have some?

Hi,Since the beginning I own this laptop it overheats. As soon as I play a game the CPU temperature will go up and fluctuate around 80-100 degrees celcius. I had to manually turn down the maximum CPU speed to about 60% in energy saving settings to keep it under 70C. This of course has quite some impact on the speed of the laptop. I cannot do the things advertised on the product page without hurting the laptop (assuming 100C is dangerous for a processor). What can I do?

It emanates from the right side - approximately under the Enter Key vicinity and occurs intermittently for maybe 2 or 4 seconds as the machine is actively processing data or updating webpages. It's not correlated with the fan turning on/off. Any ideas?

Hello, My Acer randomly BSOD with PNP error and after restart I have no sound and I get a red x on my speaker icon in the lower right corner where the clock is. I checked the Device Manager and I get a yellow exclamation mark under System Devices and it seems the problematic device is Intel(R) Smart Sound Technology (Intel(R) SST) Audio Controller. Under Sound, video and game controllers I have only one driver left - NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM). When I click View --> Show hidden devices it shows the audio drivers which means they are disabled somehow, I think? Anyhoo, I've updated the problematic driver and hoped that this solved the issue but to no avail. I'm afraid to uninstall the driver because it's under System Devices and not under Sound, video and game controllers categories. I am starting to think it might be an hardware issue, but I seriously hope not. Perhaps you have some ideas what I could try to fix this?

Hi,You need to familiarise with disassembly procedure by watching videos, you need to decide which type of SSD you actually want to install, you have the option of replacing the current HDD with 2.5" normal SSD or M.2 SATA SSD.Now, you need to back up your current drive image to another external hard drive, and create a recovery disk using a program like Macrium reflect or similar program.Then you need to install the SSD, go to BIOS and make the dvd/USB as the first boot, connect the external hard drive, insert the DVD/USB recovery disk, reboot.Now, you can recover the image you backed up earlier to the new SSD.If you need more clarification, please post your question.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhqm2yg_aiI&t=466shttp://www.macrium.com/help/v5/How_to/Rescue/Create_a_Standard_Windows_PE_Rescue_Environment.htmhttp://kb.macrium.com/KnowledgebaseArticle50074.aspx

My new VN7-792G arrived a few days ago and is a very nice machine indeed. The only odd thing is that the Fan seems to be quite loud when is starts going. I had an XPS machine before this so I am used to noisy fans, but this is quite high pitched and sounds almost as if it's imbalanced and reminds me of fans in old machines that begin to whine towards the end of their life. Oddly, the noise decreases if I lift one (or both) corners beside the hinges even slightly. I've also tried it on different surfaces in case it was a vibration issue between the laptop and the table it was on, but no success. Has anyone experienced anything similar, or is this normal?

A:Acer VN7 792G Fan noise

I think I had a very similar issue on VN7 792G, a noise like whistling. I was about to return the product but I think I fixed it. You probably won't like the solution. One of the below solved my fan noise issue (I don't know which) 1- Opened the case and investigate anything that might vibrate due to fan. First I saw that Acer forgot one of the screw of the mainboard so I placed a new one and screwed motherboard firmly no prevent any vibration. Also close to larger fan plastic casing of the (vibrating) fan was touching to the (stationary) case.  I put a soft electric band in between. 2- I put a little machine oil to both fans. This part is tricky, you need to know where to put (check online), also you will need an oil with small sized needle heads. It possible to access fans after removing keyboard. I suggest not turn upside down for sometime if you decide to put oil. best,

Hello.

It does that even on Very Low settings. I could finally find the answer to my issue when someone on Nvidia's forum told me to never update Nvidia drivers on laptops. (I was always updating to the latest driver through GeForce Experience)I followed his advice and got back to the driver provided by the manufacturer's website (which is 359.xx), since then no issue occured, I could play games on High/Ultra 120fps without freezing/crashing. I reinstalled Windows recently through the ISO provided by Microsoft's website. I disabled Windows Update to update the drivers, and I installed all the drivers provided by Acer's website for my computer, using my serial number. But after few minutes of playing, I still experience freeze/crash, and by that I mean the laptop completely freezes and the only thing I can do is to force shut down, holding power button for few seconds.

A:Acer VN7-792G CRASH - Tried everything

Hi and wellcome, First update BIOS, if you don't have the latest updates. It is highly recommended since as you can see some update the VBIOS, which has a link with the video. Also it updates the management engine which monitors various parameters (eg temperature) on the notebook. Second be sure you have installed the intel management engine drivers from the acer drivers download page. XTU will not break the warranty, but be careful because it can cause system instability if you undevolt too much. Since you have a 792G, which is bigger than any 59XG notebooks I don't think you should have any issues with thermal throttling. So I would not set the CPU to 99%. It would limit the system performance.

Hi people, I need help concerning the adapter, since all 135w acer adapters i've seen come with onlya few compatible models listed, and is hard to believe that they work *only* with these laptops.Concretely, should this adapters: http://us-store.acer.com/ak-135ap-010also work with VN7-792G, not only with VN7-791G?And should adapters listed as compatible with VN7-591G work with VN7-792G? thank you

Hi everybody! Approximately a month ago I bought this laptop. A few days of work I had found that my eyes are tired extremely fast and when I use another notebook or external monitor they just relaxing. I tried all possible settings but it is hard to work with screen not only in Windows, but in Linux too. Even if you just go to BIOS, your eyes just crucifying. I found different LCD tests and has cheched this notebook LCD. I had found that phasing test fails, after that I just went to service center and they had replaced screen. All tests passed well. But I felt not comfort while working on it. My eyes strained less but this not comfort effect had left. And I asked my friends, they said that they do not feel comfort with this screen. My oculist says that I have a healthy eyes and all problems is with that notebook. So it passes all online screen tests but harms my eyes. Service center cannot take this to repair, they say that there are no problem with the screen. I do not know what to do... Some people says that it is display controller problem and to fix it just need to flash new rom. But I have the latest BIOS 1.0.9...Any suggestions? Now I must work via HDMI to save my eyes...

Hi guys, I seem to be having issues with my secondary hardrive (to the best of my knowledge). If I am watching  a video/movie saved on it, occasionally the video wll hang for a few seconds.If I am downloading something to it, or copying a file to it, sometimes all progress will stop/downlod will stall. Then if I try and go to a folder saved on it, windows locks up and it can't load the folder or access the HDD. Today, I was watching a movie and downloading something at the same time. The download stalled, and the movie completely locked up. When I tried to fix it, WIndows crashed and I was foreced to restart.  I have changed my power settings to never put the HDD to sleep (although it occurred to me that maybe this is just controlling the HDD windows is installed on (which is the SSD)). However if I am actively downloading and watching a movie, surely it wouldn't put it to sleep. What else can I do here? Any ideas what the problem is? Is it a faulty HDD?

Hi, everyone. I bought this V Nitro Black last Monday (26 December) simply because it was the last 17" gaming laptop left in the store.  I've bought Acer before, and overall my experiences haven't been too bad. I got it home, did Windows updates, and started installing World of Warcraft.  After a while, I noticed that the download process had stalled.  Tried restarting the Battle.net client, still stalled.  I checked the disk activity in the Task Manager, and saw that the HDD (the 'D' drive, as opposed to the SSD 'C' drive) was showing 100% activity, but with no read/write activity.  I thought that was odd, and figured I'd try restarting.  This is when I realised this is a bigger issue: the system would just hang at 'Restarting', so I had to hold down the power button to force a shutdown.  Went through the process again, and the problem happened again. Eventually I opened the Resource Monitor and checked the Disk section.  While it was working, the files being written to the D: showed up, but soon the activity ramped up to 100%, and all read/writes were stopped. The game /was/ eventually installed, but it took far longer to do so because of the problem, and having to force shutdown several times. It seems that any time there's a lot of reading/writing going on, it just gives up.  Can't even defragment the drive for more than a few minutes before it happens. I have looked up the 100% disk activity probl...

Did it already have version 1607 or has it just updated to it (anniversary update)? I stopped it from installing on my laptop, since on my Acer desktop, this very issue occurred. It would just randomly freeze, the hd light would be full on. Sometimes it would unfreeze after a while sometimes not, sometimes it would freeze on restart, sometimes it would take 20 minutes before it would freeze. Sometimes during the freeze I could open task manager and see what you are describing, sometimes the entire thing would be frozen and force me to shut down. According to what I read, this was supposedly an issue where people had an SSD and an HDD and had moved their Docs and settings etc to the HDD. This was not the case for me, the system had only an SSD and no movement of Docs etc had been done. Uninstalling the anniversary update fixed the issue. Check which updates were installed after you got it home.
