Hello,I have managed to install windows 7 on VN7 792G Black Edition.The last thing what's left is sound.

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.

Hello everyone , yesterday i've received my new laptop acer vn7-792g , it's all great , comfortable , everything seems fine except 2 things. Battery (any ideas if its possible to remove it , because immo i'll screw the battery if its IN the laptop permanently especially when im gaming) and the second problem is Heating (i dont really know if its a problem) so while im not playing anything these are my temperatures --> https://postimg.org/image/uwuxodqbr and while gaming this is what is happening --> https://postimg.org/image/d3xfgtipt/ (once measured about 85 C GPU!!) Is that normal?? Please any helpful ideas..

Hi, It's perfectly normal. It's a notebook with small heatsink and not a PC with a huge fan and heatsink. The temperatures are normal, and it can go even higher which can cause your CPU and GPU to throttle.In case of the 792G since it is a 17 inch one, you probably will not have problems with throttling because it can have bigger airflow than a smaller 15 inch one. And regarding the battery. Is not removable, or you can remove it just if you take apart the notebook. But generaly is not a removable battery.

Hello,I have a problem with my Acer ASpire V Nitro Black Edition Laptop - Ultra HD screen.I have Windows 10 November Update.From time to time, but not the same period, the screen suddenly goes blank for a second.I suspect this to be a driver problem.I tried the acer driver and also the WIndows 10 generic one.Any ideas to what tests I can do? Or is it a driver in the works for that version of Win 10?The embedded video card is Intel HD Graphics 530. Thank you.

I cannot get the VGA driver for the nVidia 960M to install on my Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition VN7-792G-71ZL.  I am using the driver found on the Acer site.  I am hoping there is a straightforward solution from Acer for this problem.  I did, however, have no problems installing bios updates, firmware and the VGA driver for Intel graphics.

hello guys!

i hope you can give some feedback with regards to this kind of question(s).

i noticed that there is some kind of proliferation of windows vista black edition by benjamin ( i guess benjamin is the creator? of this edition) on the internet and even the pirated dvd installer is widely available (especially here in my region

can you give me some feedback to this? is it advisable or not to install the black edition because it claims that it is much faster compared to standard vista ultimate. i don't know if it will cause any problem in the long run if i use this black edition. by the way, windows xp sp3 black edition is also widespread

thanks and have a great day!

A:windows vista black edition

Hello Powervan,

It's highly recommended to never install a modified OS since you never know what may have been added to it. Ex: malware, viruses, etc......

Since this is considered an illegal version of Vista, it cannot be discussed here though.

Hello & Welcome to Tech Guy Forum.

What troubleshooting steps have you performed? Last known good config?

When did your computer last work well? What changed? Any known updates to Windows; AntiVirus, other program?
Which XP have you? Which service pack?

Would you describe yourself as a beginning, intermediate or advanced computer user?

Do you have an Operating System disk?

Which Sony VAIO computer have you? Some manufacturers don't provide an operating system CD; they provide a system recovery partition and / or a system recovery disk or set of disks.

Do you know how to make a bootable CD from an. ".iso" file?

The more information you provide, the more likely will success be achieved.

The touchpad drivers install but do nothing, I seen a post saying install IO drivers but those don't install. Selecting my laptop model and then Windows 10 64bit and downloading the IO drivers, they say "system not supported". None of these drivers seem to work, how do I get these working?  The laptop came with 8.1 installed and I upgraded that; however, the hard drive failed "end to end error" so I replaced it with another laptop drive. When I upgraded to 10 from 8.1 the touchpad did work. I know the touchpad isn't broken or disabled because it works fine on my linux install.

Recently, I've been having some troubles with Windows XP booting. Normally I'd use Linux, but it's my parents' machine and I'm their tech guy. Well, this is the first real problem that's stumped me. Sometimes when the computer turns on, it goes through the regular loading screen with the loading bar and the logo. After that, the screen goes black and the Num Lock key turns off. I didn't know whether to mention that or not, I just found it strange that it's on during the boot screen and turns off in the black screen. So I hold the power button for a couple of seconds, let it boot again, and I try the options in this next screen which gives me three Safe Mode options, a "Boot XP Normally" option, and a "Last known good configuration" option. I alternate between the Normal and Good Config options, but sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. I have found, however, that booting into Safe Mode works and right now I'm in Safe Mode with Networking. Could anyone please help? I need help fast.

Hi all,i currently have the gtx 285 black edition,and i am looking at getting the xfx 5850 black edition,it looks like a nice card and is very cheap for its performance,but would like to know from a few experts point of views about the card and other cards,i know the 5870 is faster but allsow more exspencive(i can get 2 5850's for the price of 1 5870) and allsow if Nvidias 400 series with physx is better choice?

A:Ati 5850 black edition

The 5850 is going to have better performance (not to mention DX11) than the 285.
The PhysX is only going to make a difference for PhysX enabled games.

I am not sure if 2 5850s will beat a 5870 in performance, but I can tell you that the advantages of having just 1 GPU outweigh the small price difference.
At least in my opinion.

I got a new PC i built myself:
AMD FX 8350 Black Edition
Gigabyte 99OXA-UD3 R5
GSkill 2x4 DDR3
650W ActivePFC PSU
Win10 64Bit

At first i had a problem using the stock CPU cooler running @ 74c CORE
I then bought Arctic 13 cooler which gave me +-69C
Now i know this CPU max temp is @ 61C or so
So i went and bought Antec H600 Pro water cooler
Now my CPU runs at max of +-57C, which, to my surprise is still too high considering im using a water cooler for the CPU... was expecting to get max of +- 45C tops, so 57C is bit high and its not a hot day today, during summer there are days way hotter then today and im worried to git the 61C mark even with the water cooler.

So what can be the problem? why are the temps so high?
(Also i used the CrossMiddlePea technique for the thermal paste which suppose to be the best)

Hey. I have one problem, that pursuits for about two months now. I've upgraded from Vista to Win7 7100 without any problem. Then I tried to update it to 7600 with no luck. Because of some sort of error while the installation. Then I've found so-called 7600 Black Edition and installed it successfully over the 7100. Well..I wish I didn't. Cos the Black in the title of this distributive meant that all graphics were changed to custom ones...And they're of very decent quality...Si the question is how can I change everything (log-on screens, themes, icons, start buttons) back to normal, standard Win7 ones? I tried to changed the welcome\log-on screens with different kinds of utilities, but no luck. I wonder if I can simply copy some files from original 7600 distributive and overwrite that ****ty stuff I have. I know, that the easiest way to do it - reinstall the OS, but after a year of using Vista I have an enormous amount of programmes installed and settings set..That would cost me a lot of time resetting and reinstalling.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have some thoughts about it.

Might be something obstructing it anyway. Take it out, very gentle shake it a little and see if you hear anything that sounds like something is moving in there, if so, try to get it out, see what it is. It's an awesome graphics card, I hope it's not broken.

Sidenote: Might want to take advantage of that warranty while it's still an option though. If you break something and then try for warranty they will know, lol.

hey guys. i have another dilemma for yall to fix.

I recently built a new gaming rig:

ASUS P5Q Pro mobo
OCZ Reaper ddr2 8gb ram (4x2gb)
e8400 3.0ghz core 2 duo
xfx gtx 260 overclocked black edition
1 tb wd
x-fi titanium sound card
haf-932 case
cooler master 900w 80+ silver psu
ASUS 22" monitor
running on vista ultimate x64

i started gaming on this rig with COD5 WAW. started crashing often. would freeze, go to black screen, loop sound and stay that way until hard reboot.

so i up'd the fan speed to about 85% usuing evga precision software. it helped a little bit, freezing kept coming back.

played godfather 2 and same exact results. i tried lowering the clock speeds on the card down to a little bit less than the stock core gtx 260's and it helped noticeably. i sitll get a freeze every now and then.

played settlers 6 today and it froze within 15 min of play even with lowered settings. I am almost certain it is the graphics card, but want to make sure with you guys. I have attached 3 minidumps for review. i would appreciate it if you guys can take a look at them. thx.

BTW what do you guys think of my new rig? any suggestions of a new graphics card if i replace it? i bought it for $210 +$20 rebate. the whole thing cost $1500 shipped.

Hey guys,

I just built a computer for a friend, and everything works, except that the multiplier, as stated in the title, is locked at 4x, (making 0.8GHz with the FSB at 200MHz). Here are the specs:

Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3 AMD 880G motherboard (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3412#ov)
2X 2GB DDR3 1333 (Kingston) RAM
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (SUPPOSED TO RUN AT 3.4GHz) CPU
Coolermaster HAF922 ATX Case (all three fans spin fine)
Gigabyte HD6870 1GB (I doubt this has much to do with it) graphics card
Seagate SATA2 1TB 7200rpm HDD (again, probably not the problem)

I have read from online forums that this was a common problem with Gigabyte motherboards (I wish I read that before the parts were ordered ), but this is a new AM3 motherboard and there is only one BIOS available? By the way, we tried manually changing the multiplier (down to 16 instead of the standard 17) in the BIOS and this did not change things. However the FSB did stay changed when we tweaked it (to 210). Has anyone got any ideas on how to fix this? Please help me; I convinced my friend to not buy an OEM computer and now I'm feeling a bit sheepish....

My x3 is overheating when xp pro is on the loading screen. my motherboard plays the warning sound, and at first i thought it was no big deal cause the alert temperature was set to 60 celsius, but when i set the alert temp to 70 celsius, it still played the sound. i am using a stock fan and havent even overclocked it yet. i have 2 80 mm case fans working fine. Should i buy a better heatsink to reduce the tempurature, or is it just a software problem?

A:AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition issues

Hi bedouinrising ,
i don't mean this to be insulting. did you forget the thermal paste by any chance? also check to make sure that your heatsink fan is plugged in and still turning. only two 80mm fans is not much in the way of airflow, but overheating that fast means something is wrong at a basic level.
the case alarm going off means that the bios is setting it off.

So i have increased the FSB from 200 to around 225 or so and i am at 3.6GHZ atm (3.2GHZ stock). Everything boots up fine and played SC2 with maxed out settings for 15mins in a semi-huge battle and these are the temps. i got.

GPU: 53.0C------47C-------24C
Temp1: 50C------39C-------36c
Core: 47.5C------40C-------27C
Core: 53.0C------47C-------23C

That's only 15mins of gameplay so i guess over 4hrs it will go up... So not sure if i should continue OCing to around 3.8 or even 4.0 or stop here.... Don't wanna damage my CPU or anything.... So yeh just wondering if i should keep OCing until it becomes unstable or keep it like it is.

Also i haven't increased anything else apart from FSB Frequency so not sure if i should increase voltage and stuff or not...

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but XP does not support DX11, or 10/10.1 for that matter. You will have to get windows 7to use DX11.

So yeh just wondering if i should keep OCing until it becomes unstable or keep it like it isClick to expand...

Thats up to you and if and when you become satisfied with the performance. A couple things though.
1) becoming 'unstable' whilst finding the furthest you can push it, is an intregal part of OC'ing. You should expect to lock up, freeze, BS, etc many times during the OC'ing process.
2) you may need to (more likely than not) need to add voltage to other areas once past 3.6-3.7 GHz on an AMD system ie north bridge, memory,HT etc.
3) watch the temps always! If you do not have an aftermarket heatsink/fan, now would be a good time to do that.
5) the absolute upper limit on Vcore is 1.55v without exotic cooling. I can already tell from your temps that anywhere near that will get over the thermal limit.

This is a good guide for AMD CPU's and voltage levels and limits, you might try AOD as well before you enter OC values into the bios.

So I was upgrading my V15 nitro black edition right. I opened it up no roblem and firs tinstalled an M.2 SSD and the computer still turn on and stuff after I installed that so I was able to clone my OS onto it. So then I turned off the PC so I could install a 2.5 SSD instead of the stock HDD that is already in the laptop. I didn't do anything differently from the first time, didn't touch any other cables or anything on the motherboard, but the laptop simply wont charge or turn on! I did some digging and found this post which is similar to my problem.http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/help-acer-asipre-v15-nitro-wont-power-up-on-battery.785204/ They talked about some microswitch, but I made sure everything was tight and in place and still nothing won't turn on. I even tried manually pressing what I assume is that microswitch, above the HDD bay, and still no results. I also tried pushing the button to reset your battery on the back of the laptop with a needle and that did nothing. Does anyone have any solutions????

Today I'm thinking about buying the 5000+ black edition processor and I've heard it can be overclocked to 6000+.

Can anyone tell me how to go about overclocking as I've never done it before, but I've heard this processor is easy to overclock.

Is this an older processor now? I currently only have a 3800+ X2.
