Hello, I did find a few threads about this but for other models, so I take my chance. I would like to buy a new ~240go SSD M 2 to upgrade my laptop.Can anyone confirm that there is actually a M 2 port inside ? I believe yes since I watched a few videos, but the laptop seller's website does not talk about it, so i'm confused. Is there any better SSD than another for compatibilty with the 792G ? I would like to use it as my main drive with Windows on UEFI in it, and the HDD I had will be used for storage. Same goes for RAM, what is the maximum RAM supported by this laptop ?

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. I have a lot of issues with my Acer VN7-792G for a long time.First time I received the laptop, I had several issues with the Nvidia drivers while playing games, the GPU would overheat and freeze the laptop completely, along with a very unpleasant noise. 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.

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 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, 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.

Hiyas

That sounds like a security issue in IE. Have you tried running a repair on IE, or perhaps upgrading it?

Something else to consider might be a Winsock Fix. I've had it before were secure sites couldn't be accessed, such as your problem, because of a previous infection damaging the protocols. Ran the winsockfix and it was all working again.

Hi Tech guys
for 2 weeks i've been having trouble with my custom build.One day my computer froze as i was using it and ever since then when i would try to boot up my computer, the fans would spin as if it was starting up... but no response comes from my keyboard mouse or monitor
I've changed out the graphics card, which didn't work
I've changed out the motherboard, which didn't work
most recently i have changed the PSU... but sadly i bought the wrong one which didn't have enough cables or pins to plug into my 8pin CPU socket.
So what else could be the problem? i was hoping to have my computer fixed before the release of portal 2, but that looks to be an impossibility.

a little more detail:
I press the power button, and all the fans that are connected run as if the computer is working fine, no beep comes from the speaker attached to the motherboard, and my monitor doesn't respond to the GPU, it just goes into standby mode but when i unplug it from the GPU it knows it has been disconnected, also the lights on the keyboard and mouse do not light up like they usually would.

So I used acer recovery on my home PC by running the disc from the CD straight and after all the installations, It won't load windows XP at all.


Even safe mode and all the other mode dont work as well.



Any suggestions?

A:Acer Recovery (Urgent)

Hi bAz666

A few questions:
1) Was the Recovery Disk the same that shipped with the Acer when you bought it?
2) Is the Acer still under warranty?
3) Are you still able to enter the system's Bios Setup?
4) Have you run any hardware diagnostics?
5) Is this the same Acer notebook that had the two-hour blackout problem from your other thread?


A Recovery Disk from any other system than the one it shipped with won't work.

Enter the system's Bios Setup, and check that you have the system's boot order to CD/DVD drive first, then the hard drive. Remove any disks in your CD/DVD drive, and try rebooting.

Should that not work, try downloading and running some diagnostics (or, if Acer has any built-in diagnostics available, run those -- your manual will have info on that). Since few laptops have floppy drives anymore, most diagnostics can run from bootable CDs. Test the memory --- http://www.memtest.org --- and the hard drive --- http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 --- Should you find anything to have failed mechanically, and the system is under warranty, contact Acer right away. Once a warranty expires, all repair costs come from your pocket.

Also -- when you turn the PC on right now -- do you see the power lights, do the keyboard lights flash, and can you hear the fans still spinning, even when the loading of Windows seems to have stalled?

Also -- when you ran your Recovery Disk, if your Acer has a "Bios Protect" feature [the wording ... Read more

Hi all.

I am a newbie over here and I have a bit of a problem. I have an Acer Aspire 1640z which has been out of action for the past 2.5 years. I have recently realised that it has all of my daughters baby photos and videos etc... on it and like any mother, I NEED to get them off!!

Problem is, when I switch the laptop on the Acer screen loads then beeps sharply at me twice. I then get a black screen with some details: Resource conflict- PCI network controller on motherboard
Bus:06, Device: 04, function:00

Press <F1> to resume or <F2> to setup. When I press F1 to resume I get the lovely NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart. I have tried this and it brings me the same NTLDR error message so I have to turn the laptop off and start the process again if I want to go to the setup.

I do NOT have any Acer recovery discs, all I have is an XP home edition 2002 disc and key which I believe was the disc that came with this laptop in the first place.

I have tried a couple of basic suggestions that I have found online such as

Holding alt + tapping F10 -does nothing
Checking the Boot settings. Hard drive is at the top of the list.

Now please bare in mind that I am a newbie to this so any tips or suggetions will need to be given in plain english that I can understand otherwise it may well result in my laptop taking a swim in my pool!! LOL

Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A:Urgent Help with Acer Aspire 1640z needed!!

OK Goldy, first things first -- Do Not use any discs to reinstall Windows or use any kind of System Recovery (That's what the F10 key is for). That will wipe out your data and your pictures.
Go to Step 2 at this page and download the fixntldriso.zip file. Save the file to your computer, double click the zip file and extract the fixntldr.iso fie to your desktop.
Put a blank recordable cd into your cd drive and burn the .ISO file to a cd. You may be able to just double click the ISO file name on your desktop to open your cd burning program.
Start up the Acer computer with the cd in the drive. If the Acer doesn't boot up to the cd automatically and you see the missing NTLDR message again, reboot by pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE. Then press F2 to go into setup.
In your list of Boot Devices or Boot Order, set your CD drive to be the first boot device. Save your changes and exit.
Once you boot to the new disc, select "Try This First on the menu", as it's described in the link I posted above.

This will be the easiest way for you to fix the problem if it's just a missing file. Post back if you have any questions.

Hi! I did a reset yesterday on my Acer Aspire One Z1402. It's a Windows 10 option in the Recovery section under Updates and security. Since then, it became slow. Processes and internet connection became slow. What should I do? Thanks!

Hi,
I have been having problems with internet in new flat for some time!
It connects to the wireless box and has full signal but an exclamation mark is present
I have run some tests and the IPv4 and IPv6 say they have no internet access
I also run a full test and everything passed except the ping test which failed and it said:
no response:default gateway
response: dhcp server

it suggested disabling security firewall but i'm not sure if that's the correct thing to do or even how to do that!
Any help would be much appreciated
Many thanks
Amy

Hello there, I just got a new Acer 5235 with Windows Vista Home Basic installed on it yesterday and I have a tiny problem while I watch videos especially avi's and live stream videos... for about each odd second the picture freezes up and then continues to play again... the sound is always in sync and everything else is O.K. but through out watching an entire avi file it constantly happens... at first I thought I had missing codecs but that does not seem to be the case. I also thought I had clashing codecs but that's also not it... I am wondering if it has to do with some sort of graphics quality of the laptop... I would appreciate it if anyone could direct me towards an answer.

with all the best regards

I bought the machine in June and it was silent, but now we're hearing a very low volume hum/buzz (kind of like a mosquito passng by your ear, except 3 octaves lower) more and more frequently. 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?

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?

Hello. My Aspire VN7-792G got some beer spilled on it's keyboard by someone while I was not at home and now no longer turns on.The Power Off USB Charge Port still charges my phone when I connect a USB cable to it.The Light that confirms it recieves power from the AC (both blue and amber lights).My thoughts are that the beer messed up the stuff under the power button (which is integrated in the keyboard apprently) and no longer works.Is there anything I can do to turn it on in a different way?Any thoughts on this?

Windows 10 has been updated as well as the BIOS and chipset but it will not see the 960 EVO ssdd.I have a Windows 10 install on an 850 EVO SSD and the drive still doesn't show up.  I haven't upgraded my personal computer in sometime but this BIOS is extremely limited, basically has options for boot order and Legacy/UEFI only.  Is there anyway to unlock this w/o having to mod it? There's lots of cross talk on the forums as to whether it's a SATA or NVME capable M.2 slot on this laptop.  I've spent a good deal of time on this and would really like for it to work.  Thanks in advance.

   How can i replace the hdd for a ssd in my Aspire VN7-792G?

A:replace hdd for ssd in aspire VN7-792G

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

Sound on my machine cuts out randomly.  Reinstalled audio driver but it still happens.  I think it is hardware.  If I tap on the case, I can get sound to come back.  Acer wants me to send it in for repair but I don't want to be without the machine for two weeks. I tried headphones (they work).  I am suspecting the headphone jack itself - maybe a bad mechanical connection where it switches from speakers to headphones. Anyone else have this problem or a solution?

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?

So I connect a 1080p TV to the HDMI port. Detects fine. But when I connect it, it displays in 720p (or something close to it, looks like 720p). Desktop Right Click > Display Srttings > Select TV > AdvancedThe resolution field is empty. Can't set it here, but I can for the built in display. *shrug* So instead...Desktop Right Click > Graphics Properties (which is Intel HD Graphics)I select the TV... It claims to be set at 1920x1080, which is BS. So now the real fishy part. I set the TV to mirror the built in display. My built in display is now at 720p, but HD Graphics claims I have them set at 1080. As soon as I disconnect the TV, the resolution on the built in display scales back up to 1080p. Icon sizes change, etc. It's very obvious something is not right. Any ideas or suggestions? I've tried everything I can think of. Oh and, I'm a Desktop tech. Something like this should be trivial...
