Acer Aspire 3680-2682 processor compatibility

Q: Acer Aspire 3680-2682 processor compatibility

Hi, I'm interested in purchasing an Acer Aspire 3680-2682 laptop with an intel celeron M 440 from a friend (for less than $300,) the same laptop featured in this add http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Acer...psm/oid/185211/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do#tabs
He has had no problems with it, but decided to buy a better, gaming oriented laptop. I don't really mind for gaming or plan to run programs with high demand of speed power, but I wanted to know what processors are compatible in case I wanted an upgrade to a faster CPU (if it's even possible, since I know some CPUs come soldered to the main board) or if it's even worth it to go all the way for an upgrade.

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Never plan on upgrading the CPU in a laptop, even if it is socketed, there is often BIOS limitations and there is always heat dissipation issues.

Laptops are designed to be able to "just cope" with the heat generated by the CPU that they ship with. A faster one, if possible to fit, generates more heat. That would "speed step" the processor back to save it from destruction, resulting in probably no improvement.

Apart from HDD and RAM, laptops are not upgradeable.

If you are looking for a new Acer boot Disk then you'll have to pay for one from Acer.

Have you tried to test for bad RAM or try and boot into safe mode?

I recently bought this new notebook that came preloaded with Vista that you had to buy a license to activate it. I already had a new copy of xp pro so I installed that system. I was able to download all the drivers that I needed for xp from their web site. The only problem is that I cannot get the computer the install the ethernet controller drivers. I often have this kind of problem with my other computers, just not very knowledgeable on that sort of thing. Any helpfun hints would be greatly appreaciated.
 

A:Acer aspire 3680 notebook

I had a hard time finding the driver, or rather one that worked. If you send me your email address I will forward it to you. I don't remember where I found it otherwise I would send you the link. I just wish ACER was like Dell and would send a restore disk with all the drivers. I'm having problems downloading the drivers I need from their site. My CD Rom just stopped working AGAIN .... Have a good one.

There's several different reasons for this error.The first thing to try is to run Startup Repair: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/Once that's done, also run the Windows Memory Diagnostic from the same screens. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/using-vista-windows-memory-diagnostics-tool/Finally, download a bootable hard drive diagnostic from the manufacturer of your hard drive.

Hello,

I have an Acer Aspire 3680 and yesterday, when I tried to boot up, it gives a black screen, no images, prompts, sounds etc. I can hear the fan and the lights on the front are on.

I have read many posts and tried some things but I am now lost. I have tried;

*Plugging in external monitor - cannot get anything on second screen
*Taking out battery, draining power, restarting numerous time - no luck
*Hitting function keys to try to get to set-up screen - no luck

The memory is very full (close to capacity) althouh I'm not sure if this is related.

I have read in some posts about dowloading BIOS files on a memory stick but I can't find any information specific to the 3680.

Thanks in advance for your help. I really need to get booted up so I can recover and backup a lot of personal files and photos.

Regards

I have an Acer Aspire 3680 with 1.5 GB ram with Vista Home. I upgraded it to Windows 7. Now everything is fine except the fact that Acer has not made any Utilities (like "Acer Empowering Technology) for Windows 7.

Is it possible to use such Utilities from other (later) Acer models? If so, which one should I use.

Thanks.

A:Utilities for Acer Aspire 3680

I've used later model drivers on my previous gen machines before with good effect. Try to find a model with hardware similar to yours, then download and install the drivers for it.

I won't say this won't mess up your computer though.

To see your hardware, try this excellent program.

Hello,

I have an ACER Aspire 3680 laptop. About 1 year ago, I purchased an OEM battery (compatible based on number match) to replace the manufacturer's battery that had stopped charging. I installed the battery, plugged in the AC adapter and turned on the computer. Once fully booted, the battery icon said "Battery not found". The laptop works as long as it's plugged in to the AC adapter, but powers off immediately if the adapter is removed.

I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or a software issue. My thought is that it might be solved by updating a driver, but it could also be that the hardware that converts the AC to charge the batter is defunct.

I appreciate all suggestions!

Hello and welcome to TSF, bache!

Do you have the original Vista DVD or would you prefer XP over Vista?

If you don't have the Vista DVD, try calling up Acer as I have and ask for a recovery disc, or maybe a new Vista DVD. You never the magic they might make happen.

Hello everyone! I'm seeming to have a very strange issue with my wifi. I have very good wifi in my bedroom, however when I move just 10-15 feet over in the other room I lose it completely. I was able to keep the wifi connection throughout the house not too long ago, so this is just a new problem. I have an Acer Aspire 3680, and my wireless network adapter is Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter. The wifi connection is strong throughout the house, I can prove this because my phone wifi, AND my ipod touch wifi are able to keep 5 bars even if I go outside on the porch. Anyways, any help is appreciated. Thank you for reading.

Hi,

Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop, upgraded to Windows 10, does not always start. It needed a new battery, so I bought one.

I did the discharge procedure, taking the battery out, holding the start button down, and that works occasionally.

One weird thing that does happens is this. If I take the battery out, plug in the charger, the power light does not come on. Put the battery back in and with the power cord plug in, the power light comes on.

Sometimes it will start with just battery power, other time with power supply plug in.
What is going on? Help please!

I would assume if you could crack the laptop open and find a processor that has the same socket type that you could do it. You'd have to reapply thermal paste and reset the cooler though. Bit of an undertaking but if you're handy with technology and can take your time it shouldn't be too tough.

Looked @ the motherboard on the following sitehttp://www.ascendtech.us/ecs-mcp61pm-am-dual-core-am2-motherboard_i_mb64ecsmcp61pma.aspx In the CPU section it states that the Dual Core processor is supported, but what I am wondering is if I have to upgrade the BIOS as well or will it run fine with the current BIOS on the motherboard.  If I need to update the BIOS, where can I find it.

Hi donkeyd The Athlon 64 3800+ processor is a Socket 939 CPU, whereas the Athlon 64x2 6000+ is the newer AM2, so unfortunately are not compatible. You will need to look for a dual core CPU that will fit a Socket 939. Hope this helps!

I have an older Acer 3680 laptop with Vista 32 bit.  Vist is no longer supported by MS, so there are no updates.  I just got a message saying System Volume Disk is Corrupt.  This laptop did NOT come with any recovery/installation disks for Vista.  However, I cannot boot this computer.  Please help.  Before this happened, I never had any problems

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
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.

i need a very quick reply please

Quick reply!!! Save your data and restore back to factory. Always have a back up image of your OS on a external drive for next time you have this problem!!

I restarted my computer like normal and for whatever reason the computer is now stuck at the Acer boot screen. I try to press DEL to enter Setup and I even tried pressing F12 to go into the Boot Setup, but for whatever reason the computer does not respond to anything.

To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.

Stuff to know:
- I have a wireless mouse and keyboard being used on that desktop.. Should I perhaps try to plug in a corded mouse and keyboard?
- I'm running on Windows 7 Ultimate.
Thanks

My system is roughly months old I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to home premium There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to Acer M3203 Windows software Acer's upgrade and Aspire 7 deep hibernation The only way to wake it was to unplug Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software 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 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

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.

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

Try booting to Memtest86 you can burn a CD and I think it can also be run from a USB bootable flash drive. This will test your memory for problems and also let you know that the hardware in general will run (except the hard drive which is ignored at this stage.If the memory is good, then boot to your hard drive mfg's utility or Seatools from Seagate (DOS version) the same as Memtest but it tests your hard drive to see if it is just the drive that you cannot install on.If the memory and hard drive tests OK then you may just need to delete all current partitions on the hard drive before trying to install.If the memory does not test good, try cleaning the contacts on the memory with a soft pencil eraser and snapping them in and out 5 or 6 times to also burnish the slot's contacts. Then try memtest again on one stick at a time in case one stick is bad, swap and try again.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

A:Processor compatibility

Most laptops use integrated graphics, so its unlikely yours will be replaceable with something better. The CPU may of course not work either, it depends on whether it was sold with your motherboard and that CPU as to whether it will work - There are other factors, but I tend to take the approach of it working if its been done already by the manufacturer.

Upgrading your RAM will boost overall performance, but you won't really see any improvement in game.

My advice would be to replace the laptop. You could probably sell this one and use it against the cost of a new one.

Hi!
I was wondering if the "AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Processor - 3.0GHz, 2MB Cache, 1000MHz (2000 MT/s), Windsor, Dual-Core" is compatible and can replace the processor in a Compaq Presario SR5110NX. The PSU has been upgraded to 460 Watts,if that makes a difference. I was told by a HP guy that I would need a new motherboard,but is that true?

Responses greatly appreciated!!
 

A:Processor Compatibility

When you're dealing with a System Builder proprietary motherboard with a proprietary BIOS only the System Builder can tell you positively what processors are supported.

I am going to upgrade my 2.8 ghz processor to a 3.6 ghz

my current processor runs at 90nm???? and the new one is a 65nm

what does this mean? will my motherboard (dell oj8885 Intel i945G/GZ ) support this new chip?
 

A:processor compatibility

"nm" refers to a manufacturing process, not speed. You would need a new MB (and often other items like RAM) to use the new chip. In general Dells do not allow for much in the way of CPU upgrades. They would rather you buy a new system.

I have a e4500 core 2 duo processor at the moment. I would like to upgrade to q9650 which is a quad core. The q9650 is package type LGA775 which is the same as the e4500. Does this mean that the Q9650 would fit and work in my socket?

ALso, I have downloaded a program called siSoftware Sandra which gives info about your computer. This also tells me that the upgradeability of my socket and it says:
Socket/Slot: 775
Upgrade interface: ZIF Socket
Supported Speeds: 3.80 Ghz -----} Does this mean that the quad core would not work?

I can get VIA c3 600mhz chips for little of nothing ($10 each)

I have quite a few CPUless VIA and intel chipset socket 370 motherboards and my friend has a slot 1 board that has a slocket.

I am wondering HOW compatible are these with any given socket 370 motherboard?

Must your board be verified compatible to work at all or will the chips work on any old board for example an Abit BX6 w/ slocket.
WIll any board with a VIA chipset work, after all VIA makes the things?

Thanx for any insights, I KNOW the chips aren't the fastest, cost is of upmost importance.

Thanx

I feel dumb even asking this since I should know. Im building a system and havent been able to get it to boot. Fujitsu-siemens mobo D1675, elixir Ram-512mb,XFX GeForce vid card-256mb. The processor I bought is a P4 2.8Ghz Prescott,after hours of troubleshooting I finally looked up processor compatibility on their site,and that model isnt listed. Northwood is what they recommend. The ram I have isnt listed either although they say other brands could work,but the listed brands have been extensively tested. Would the difference in processor models matter that much? So as to not boot up? Ive tried all the normal troubleshooting tips,removed the mobo,checked the ram, unplugged all drives,all plugs etc. etc.

I am building a computer and I am trying to scrape buy under 1,000 or a little above like 1,300. I was looking for a motherboard with 8x AGP and would support atleast a 1.8GHz or maybe up to 2.4GHz intel with 533 Frontside bus speed. I found some ASUS boards but with only the 4x AGP. I was also wondering where the best place is to buy motherboards and processors for cutthroat prices.

What is a better RAM I have been getting confused with all the diffrent types of RAM. What is the diff between them all?

I have chosen to go with Intel over ATI because of the Bus speed in which the highest ATI bus speed I could find is 400Mhz. Any tips in this area of Motherboards and processors would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,Chris

I'm running an AMD 64 2800+ (sckt 754) and my mobo is an ASUS K8V-MX. Currently i've got two memory modules in my PC and they're both PC2700. I know my mobo should be compatible with PC3200, but i'm not sure whether my processor is.
The memory i'm getting is a complete upgrade, 2x1gb sticks corsair PC3200 DDR. i heard that DDR memory is all compatible (ie. a system designed for PC2700 333mhz will accept a PC3200 400mhz, although it may run at a slower speed).Is this true and will it work with my rig?
Thanks in advance
 

A:mobo/processor RAM compatibility

Yeah that motherboard is compatible with the pc3200 ram and it will run at pc3200.

So go ahead and buy the ram if you want to.

Probably a dumb question ...

I've got a 3-year-old computer that still runs well, even if it is extremely slow by today's standards. It has an Intel Seattle II SE440BX-2 motherboard with a 333 MHz processor. I was originally told that this motherboard would accept PII processors up to 450 MHz, and recently a friend mentioned that he had a couple of different 450 CPUs (SL358 and SL2U7). When I was checking the specs to see if one was better than the other, I noticed that both 450 processors have a "100 Mhz" spec (bus speed?) but my current 333 processor has a "66 Mhz" spec. The motherboard specs show a clock speed of 67 MHz in the bus properties. Am I correct in concluding that neither of the 450 processors would work in my motherboard?

I require assistance with motherboard/processor compatibility. I have been to both websites (Intel for processor, Gigabyte for Mobo) and I can't really understand how to work the compatibility test. I was wondering if I could get some advice here.

At the moment, I'm using:
Mobo: Gigabyte G41M-ES2H
Chipset: Intel G41

Processor: Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 @ 1.80Ghz
Socket: 775 LGA

And I'm looking to replace that old processor with a new:
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual Core E6600 @ 3.06 Ghz
Socket: 775 LGA

I have spoken to a tech support specialist from Harvey Norman, and he has said that as long as the socket type is the same, it will be supported. I was wanting to get some feedback from another tech specialist, as I like to check things twice before I do them.

Thank you for taking the time to read this

This is the model of the PC, you need to supply the make and model number of your mother board. If you look inside the box you should be able to find this information written on the board. You should also think about checking your power supply to be sure it can cope with the extra power. What size is your PSU at present.

I was looking possibly putting 2 of the ES-2906 V2 (Mfg # BX80635E52609V2)
However, not sure the differences between the V1 and V2. Does any know if this will work? Or what would be a good upgrade? \

I really can't believe you would consider an expensive motherboard, expensive processors and other expensive components and even consider a $25 power supply.

Personally, I wouldn't use a power supply less than this one for that configuration.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006

Intel doesn't show the PCG rating for those processors, so I would give Intel a call and find out the PCG rating for the processors before purchasing a power supply.

You don't use a "cheapo" power supply with quality components.
