Q: Thinking in buying an R3-471T-76BM. How do I know ...

Hi, I'm from Argentina, I'm about to buy the ACER R3-471T-76BM. Prices over here are way expensive than the US, neverthless this particular laptop is pretty cheap and I "smell" that the seller may be hidding the fact that it's a refurbished laptop. How can I tell if the item is refurbished or not? What should I know to tell apart a refurbished ACER vs a new one? Thanks in advance!

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.)

A "refurbished" Acer "should" have a sticker on the bottom. Other than that you should be able to call Acer and ask if that s/n has previously been registered or if it has the full warrenty.

This is my first post on this message board so I hope I m starting this thread in the right place I m thinking about buying a new PC and my main concern is that I can t afford one with a Pentium processor but that s all I m familiar with I ve seen Thinking about new buying a PC... one I can afford but it has an Thinking about buying a new PC... AMD Athlon processor and for some reason I ve always avoided them At the moment I have Pentium MHz Windows ME MB RAM GB drive Radeon Pro The one I m looking at has AMD Athlon Windows XP MB DDR RAM x MB GB x RPM Serial ATA Drive Mb GeForce FX I m not a novice when it comes to computers but I m not an expert either so although I understand pretty much all of the above some of it does confuse me What I d like to know is would it be worth my buying the new PC for what I want to use it for I play games occasionally Hitman Tomb Raider etc but mainly I use my PC for capturing video clips and editing them I realise the graphics card is not as good but the one I have now I installed myself without any problems so if I found the new one unsatisfactory I could easily replace it Any advice would be greatly appreciated Thanks nbsp

i know many other people might post much more detailed responses here, but from my experience, AMD is the top dog in CPU's and has been for awhile. that new comp you're looking at sounds ideal.

Hi guys just wanted some expert opinion on this system that I am thinking about buying, I will also add a solid state drive to it probably 100GB and a Western Digital 2 TB green for back up purposes.

"Ultima Viper" Intel Core i7 930 2.80GHz @ 4.00GHz DDR3 System [] Pro Gamer - Ultima

I am not a gamer so the graphic card is not that bigger deal for me so long as it works . I do a lot of music production and web design and apart from that just general PC use.

Thx Guys

I was thinking about buying a new PSU for my system but I don't know if it is really necessary. I already have a 520w dual +12v rail PSU but my new 7800GS OC isn't putting out ANY video so I thought about upgrading to a 600w PSU would fix the problem.

Here is a list of things the PSU must power:

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ CPU
AU31 K7M-NF18G (nForce2) mobo
(2x) 1024MB DDR SDRAM gaming sticks
GeForce 7800GS OC 256MB (AGP 8x)
Creative Audigy4 PRO sound card
WD 120GB hard drive
WD 320GB hard drive
DVD drive
CD drive
Floppy drive

My 7800GS requires a minimum of "400w with a +12v current rating of 20A or more" to operate. I don't know the rating on my current PSU. Does anyone think a new PSU would do the trick?
 

A:Thinking of Buying New PSU

550W run most cards and as yours isn't the most power hungry i can't see that as being the problem. What make is the PSU? and look for its power ratings on the side of it. Maybe its the card it self thats gone.

I'm thinking of upgrading my CRT to an LCD widescreen.

Trouble is, I'm not sure if my video card will support it. It's an ATI Radeon 9000. I went to the ATI web site and downloaded the latest drivers. Apparently my card is no longer supported; the last update was about 2 months ago. I installed it and it doesn't seem to offer support for the resolution 1440x900, which is the max resolution a widescreen monitor supports.

Would I need to buy a new card?

I'm thinking of buying a radeon 9600 pro and I was wondering how this card handles cs:source, dod etc. One more how much would you recomend my power supply be for this card. This is just a quick upgrade till I can afford a new computer.

My specs are:
752 mb Ram
Athlon 3000+ 2.2 Ghz

It'll be a AGP 8x too.
 

A:Thinking of buying a quick upgrade

With a card like the 9600 Pro, you probably won't need to buy a new power supply.

As for how it will handle games like CS:S, the game should run fairly well at medium or a little higher detail.

I have many high demand programs on my current computer like:

Please post here if you have any of these. My question is, would the computer I want handle these programs? World of Warcraft's framerate tends to drop after entering a new city or any big city. Avid Liquid 7's framerate tends to drop when many filters and effects are added to a movie. Deep Creator runs fine on my computer. Is this computer made for these programs? Will World of Warcraft run smoothly during the whole time I am playing? Please post if you have the computer I want or have these programs and know preformance advice on them. Thanks again.

A:thinking about buying x800 pro, got questions :P

I've got that very mobo right in front of me! How odd!

You should be just fine with the motherboard.

But I'd be wanting a new PS if I were you. I tried to run some serious hardware on a 300w not long ago, and the dang thing would'nt even POST most of the time until everything had power and I restarted it a few times.

The RAM is a big power sucker, and you have times 2.

Plus that PS manu isn't the best around. I'd hop onto Newegg and get a 450w or better. I'm running a 550 watt on my hardware, and I have only a FX 5700 Ultra. But the PS only cost like $60 on sale. So they aren't bad.

Incidentally, I am thinking about getting the same card, let us know how it runs will ya!

Hello, I use Comcast with my own modems for a long time now. I haven't had much trouble with them trying to blame my equipment but I do keep a spare modem around to try if they pull that crap. Basically you just get a motorola sb6143 or sb6183 or a newer model of those with different numbers after "sb". They show up under the "Arris" brand nowadays. There are some bar codes and numbers and MAC address on the box and on the modem, is easier to hook up the modem and then take the box, call Comcast and activate the modem by saying "I would like to activate my own modem", they'll ask for the HFC MAC and maybe something else, I forget the verbatim details but it is not difficult.

Hi there, dont think reliabilty problems of SSD are a problem

I personally have a SSD for OS & a 1TB drive for data and backup etc, this is prob the best option for you if you need min 500gb space

Size and brands are all down to how much you want to spend i have gone for a vortex SSD but i know a lot of people prefer Intel variants

Also i would always do a fresh install on a new drive, if your old drive has problems you wont know how much data your gonna get of it until you try

I have owned my Aspire R5-471T laptop for about 4 days.   It appears to work just great except for 1 quirk.  It intermittently disconnects itself from my home network (other computer devices in the house do not do this).  It takes an adapter reset (through selecting troubleshooting) to reconnect.   any ideas?

Go to Solution.

A:model--r5-471T

If you still have problems...... Make sure you have the latest firmware on the ASUS router.  Go to ASUS website and search for firmware for your router model.  After you flash latest firmware...reset ASUS to factory defaults by pressing and holding the reset button for more than 5 seconds.  And then reconfigure it manually from scratch.  Don't try to restore previous settings.  It's best to use as many of the default router settings as possible unless you really know what you're doing. Delete (forget) the old wireless profiles on your computers.  And then restart your computers.  And then reconnect. And if you're still having problems after that........ 1.  Disable IPv6 on the ASUS router2.  Unplug the ASUS, your modem, and any access points from the electrical outlet.3.  Power down all of your computers.4.  Plug in ASUS. modem, and access points.5. Turn on computers.6.  After everything is working ok for 48 hours, enable IPv6 on the ASUS. I had something similar happen on a different computer model, and it was due to me tinkering with IPv6.

In general I do not do BIOS updates without a reason. I also wait about a month for new updates (Win 10 is annoying that way) If it is working well, don't fix it. The R5-471T I have here is on BIOS 1.03.

The battery is not considered user replaceable as far as Acer is concerned, it can be done though.
 
The memory is onboard memory and is not able to be upgraded.

Intel has a stable driver release dated 3/8/2016 for HD520 graphics. The i5-6200U found in this laptop is specifically mentioned. This driver can not be installed on the 471T by any traditional/standard means. Acer needs to package a newer driver release for this laptop desperately. Doesn't matter what I do, this machine is plagued with constant GPU driver crashes, especially while browsing the web (browser choice doesn't matter). This is a WIDELY KNOWN issue with skylake laptops, and is largely solved by a driver update, but this can not be done without an Acer packacged driver release. Running 5 months behind schedule on driver releases is not even reasonable. Shame on you Acer. If you want to be taken seriously get this done now. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25818/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-10-15-40-

So about a week or two ago I updated my r - T to windows anniversary addition did some updates through the acer care center app and did a disc defrag and error check on my hard drive But ever since it has issues shutting down and coming up normally like I've noticed that when I shut it down or turning down completely on... shutting not R3-471T and and I always shut it down by going to the windows button then power then shut down that the light next to the symbol that looks like a light bulb is still lit up blue or sometimes a flashing orange Then when I would go to turn it on I would press the power button once and it would start up but now I have to press and hold the button for at least a minute to get it to start or if I notice the lights on when I shut it down then I have to press and hold the power button until the light shuts off and after that it will start up normally Now originally this was only happening after I would charge the computer overnight but now it's doing it just randomly I have tried using a different R3-471T not shutting down completely or turning on... power cord I've taken it to geek squad and they ran their programs and there was nothing wrong with it I've ran a couple free diagnostic programs that I found online and they say nothing is wrong with it The only other thing that I can think of to do is plug the charger into a different power strip or directly into the wall but since it doesn t do this just after being charged I don't know that that will fix it But I'm also wondering if since one of the updates that I did through the acer app before I was having this issue is a power management update if that maybe caused the issue Though I'm wondering if this is a software or hardware issue I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions or fixes nbsp Here is some info on my computer nbsp It's an Acer R - T Running windows nbsp Anniversary Editioni gb Ram ssd

A:R5-471T-52EE USB C output support a "3rd" monitor?...

I use a Targus dock & Displaylink drivers to provide signal to two monitors from the USB 3.0 port and can send to a third with the HDMI (not counting the R5 display) so could be four. Mediasonic also has a good dual display dock (have to be careful some docks advertise HDMI OR VGA. A true dual display dock will support simultaneus displays). Without an external adapter of some sort I do not know of a way to support three monitors with different displays. The manual seems to be a cut'n'paste from a R3 that does have a RJ-45 jack, the R5 doesn't. (but both of my docks have gigabit ethernet jacks & have seen over 80MB/s at home.)

Hi, I have noticed that my acer aspire R14 (R5-471T) (i7 version) records fake touches when brighness is set on highest. Initially I had no idea why it was happening but after a while I noticed this pattern. Since, I don't keep brightness on highest level, this is not a very big issue for me but I though it would be good to let the community know. I may be wrong and it might be issue just with my unit.

I have a new R5-471T and updated the BIOS to 1.10. In the BIOS menu on the Security page (where one enters Supervisor password, etc.), the up and down arrow keys are not recognized, so I can't change any values. They work on other pages. The left-right arrow keys work fine. The Supervisor password item is highlighted - I can press Enter and type in a password, but I can't advance to the confirmation field so I can't even set that!

Purchased this product a little over 3 weeks ago.  Problems from the start.  The touchscreen is not at all smooth.  Trying to zoom in on pictures by pinching/spreading fingers on the screen is terrible.  My experience with a competing brand was much better/smoother.  Sometimes the touchscreen just doesn't seem to work at all.  Then it will come back.  Another issue is that my intel graphics driver continually crashes.  This is my last resort before returning the product to exchange for a different brand.  Please help.

as far as i know, windows 7 doesn't have a native USB3.0 support by the way on your laptop an USB 2.0 (the one not blu) is available and this, normally works under windows 7. if you still have issues, you could try to create a slipstream version with some embedded drivers, nLite will help you do it (it's free):https://www.ntlite.com/http://www.askvg.com/download-nlite-for-windows-7-windows-8-and-windows-8-1/

So recently I need to get a Sony Tie Clip Microphone to work on my Acer Aspire R3-471T laptop, however, as there is only one audio jack, I do not know how to connect the microphone so the laptop identifies it as a microphone. I do recall very slightly a notification asking me which device Apple headphones where and maybe seeing a microphone option.  I cannot seem to find anyway to get the laptop to recognize the mic as a microphone and I would prefer not a purchase an audio apparatis if it can be avoided. Is there anyway to do this? or am I just spending time pulling out hair on a fruitless task?

Turning Touchpad settings in BIOS from advanced to basic removed the acceleration but also turn off precision touchpad. It's also very slow without turning the mouse sensitivity very high.

After downloading the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to my R5-471T-51UN laptop, my Logitech M535 Bluetooth mouse will no longer re-connect after either a power-cycle of the mouse or a reboot of the laptop; I have to re-pair the mouse with the laptop every time I want to use it. Uninstalling and re-installing the most current available version of the Bluetooth driver has no effect. I suspect that there is a compatibility problem with the Bluetooth driver and the Anniversary Update because: - I didn't have this problem prior to the installation of the Anniversary Update- My Logitech mouse does not require its own driver- When I turn off the mouse with the Windows Bluetooth dialog open, the status goes from "Connected" to "Driver error" to "Paired" Would appreciate any additional troubleshooting advice that I might be overlooking, or (preferably) an estimate as to when a fixed Bluetooth driver will be made available.

Hello everyone. As the title says, i have problems with both shutdown and hibernate procedures. There are many times when i try to shutdown or hibernate the laptop, the screen turns black, but the laptop still works, and it won't shutdown/hibernate, which forces me to close the laptop from the power button. Some of the times it works. So if anyone knows what the problem might be...it would be amazing. Thank you and a good day.

Is there something I could be missing, or do I need to return to Best Buy?

If you are totally against a factory reset, which you should not be since it is brand new, you can try a refresh first to see if that fixes it.

Hi, I have a problem with my Aspire R5-471T in which I have no internet, and when I try to set-up a connection it says "Windows did not detect any networking hardware". I tried re-installing the drivers, and even doing a full reinstall via the "Reset" option. The laptop was having some issues for finding the internet connection in the past days but then it found it, but now it doesn't work at all.Any ideas or suggestions? Might it be a real hardware issue? Because I don't know what else to do on the driver side.

Hello Acer support community R5-471T-52EE support a C "3rd" USB output monitor?... nbsp I understand that HD should support up to monitors as long as the socket is electronically mapped to physical outputs nbsp nbsp I would like to know if the USB C port on this laptop is mapped to support nbsp a rd monitor for example using a monitor connected to the HDMI port another connected to the nbsp USB-C port and the built in monitor at the same time If so does USB-C carry both legacy digital video and display-port native signals or just displayport-native I'm seeing lots of USB-C to HDMI and DVI adapters on the market but I'm not clear on whether they would work with this machine specifically and whether they are active or passive R5-471T-52EE USB C output support a "3rd" monitor?... in nature nbsp nbsp ------- nbsp The specification pages for this laptop at bestbuy com and acer com both claim that this machine has an ethernet port Unless it is hiding somewhere I can not find it anywhere on this machine Might want to revise your specifications nbsp nbsp -------- nbsp Thank You nbsp Eric

A:R5-471T-52EE USB C output support a "3rd" monitor?...

I use a Targus dock & Displaylink drivers to provide signal to two monitors from the USB 3.0 port and can send to a third with the HDMI (not counting the R5 display) so could be four. Mediasonic also has a good dual display dock (have to be careful some docks advertise HDMI OR VGA. A true dual display dock will support simultaneus displays). Without an external adapter of some sort I do not know of a way to support three monitors with different displays. The manual seems to be a cut'n'paste from a R3 that does have a RJ-45 jack, the R5 doesn't. (but both of my docks have gigabit ethernet jacks & have seen over 80MB/s at home.)

Hi fire-fly,
 
Unfortunately, I don't have an answer for your question, but it does sound like a good idea if the technology is catching up. I would like to suggest taking a look at our Idea's platform (linked up top) and submitting this there. This is a great way for you to  find other users who are looking for these features and to show us how important these features are.

It seems that you have AVG Antivirus installed and that it is also possibly corrupted. I would recommend upgrading to AVG 9 if you are happy with AVG. ( AVG is a good free antivirus )I would also recommend some scans of your computer to be sure things are clean. I also noticed that you are running Limewire. This is a Peer to Peer ( aka P2P ) program and poses a significant risk to your security. The two links below explain in great detail the dangers of P2P programs and why they should not be used. P2P Software User AdvisoriesRisks of File-Sharing TechnologyWith that being said, let's get on to some scanning.Scan for Spyware/Adware Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware a.k.a. MBAM - Download Free Version - HomepageWhy? Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is very good at removing the zlob trojan, virtumonde, and most other current infections. This single tool has replaced multiple tools that have been required in the past. 1. Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. At the end, confirm a check mark is placed next to the following:
Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware2. At the end, confirm a check mark is placed next to the following:3. Then click Finish.4. If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.5. Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.6. When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.7. Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.8. When completed, a log will open in Notepad. The rogue application should now be gone.Note: Some infections will prevent MBAM from running. If MBAM won't run, try renaming the file mbam-setup.exe to a random name, and then try again.Note:Reinstall MBAM if you installed and ran a scan in safe mode. Doing this is usually not advised as MBAM is designed to be at full power when running in normal mode and loses some effectiveness for detection & removal when used in safe mode. Therefore, after completing a scan it is recommended to uninstall MBAM, then reinstall it in normal mode and perform another Quick Scan.Post that log for review. When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system. The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.Note 2:-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM.

Windows Seven, should be renamed Windows. Just simply Windows. No suffix. No XP, no Vista, no codenames, no numbers. Just simply Windows. This OS is by far the best I have used. Sure it has some bugs here and there, but that's what happens with Betas.

It could be:

Windows Basic
Windows Business
Windows Home Premium
Windows Ultimate

Just like when movies are named after their first. Rambo 4 was just Rambo. Rocky 6 was simply Rocky. For games Test Drive 7 was just called Test Drive.

I just personally think it would be cool. Kind of epic in a dorky kind of way. Make this the new definitive Windows. All future installations shall build upon this.

Checked everything in GPU drivers, killed system sounds but still all the same. I don't recall doing anything to enable that could trigger that.

Might be best to find a consignment shop or try a free listing service.

The problem is when I try opening a folder in one of these drives explorer hangs. Some of these folders contain 40K+ files and XP is try to determine which ones are music files.
If I turn off "Show common tasks in folders" in "Folder Options" the problem goes away but this also turns off all common tasks in folders. I don't use the Music, Photo or Video Tasks.
How do I turn off the tasks I don't need??

A:Thinking Outside the Box

Hello, whilst your description of the malware actions is not necessarily very accurate, there could be several anti-malware programs operating on the principle you refer to.

The "Tea Timer" component of Spybot Search & Destroy is a registry watchdog:

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/

Tea Timer is often regarded as intrusive and awkward to use, since most people have no way to be sure whether a registry modification is valid or not, so are faced with the choice of unintentionally allowing a malicious modification or preventing a necessary modification and hamstringing something in the registry.

Another possibility that springs to my mind is DriveSentry:

Hello again,

Looking to move my primary W7 machine to SSD in March.
Plan on a small one, probably 32gigs for W7, CS4 Design Premium, etc. etc.
Is this too small, do I have to go 64gigs?
Also, most of the reviews out there, at least on New Egg are average except for the Intel ones.
Any thoughts., direction, or should I just hold off another 6 months?

thanks,

fmg

A:thinking about SSD

30gig is OK. I have win7 in a 40GB partition on a 80GB Intel SSD and use about 15GB (with a healthy selection of programs installed). This Intel is a first generation but works very well. I have the same again for a Vista laptop that is not yet installed. I also have an OCZ Vertex 60GB for Win7 in my Dell box in Germany.
For Win7, I would probably go with the 30GB OCZ Vertex because it has Trim. Just make sure you get firmware level 1.4 at least. At NewEgg, they sometimes offer it for $99. This all assumes that it will go into a desktop where there is also a HDD for volume data.
If you buy it from NewEgg, order the brackets to fit it into the 3.5" bay and the mobo cable at the same time.

One bracket example (of many): Newegg.com - BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure - HDD Accessories

Cable: Newegg.com - OKGEAR 18" SATA II cable with metal latch,UV BLUE Model GC18AUBM - Cables

Im thinking of getting around a 250GB SSD.

Do they last any longer or shorter than HDDs? Will they make my computer faster?

The big question: Is it worth it, or should I go with a 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD?

A:Thinking about a new SSD

A 250GB SSD drive is going to cost over $700

Nobody knows for sure on the life, but it seems they will last a good 10 years....so probably longer than most people will want to use them

They will certainly make your computer faster. 250MB/s read speeds coupled with .1ms access times make them crazy fast compared to standard hard drives.

I run an 80GB Intel SSD with my OS and a 1TB 7,200 drive for storage. If you can run 2 hard drives, this gives you best of everything without too much cost.

Can anyone tell me if this PSU is any good? Also will it improve performance over my current supply (see specs)

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...23&subcat=1098

A:Thinking of getting this PSU

OCZ has a favorable reputation.

I have no personal experience with that PSU.

However, I have a pathological fondness for PSUs with single 12V rails. A few years ago, some multiple-rail PSUs did badly with high-powered graphics cards, because of a poor power distribution design. That probably no longer applies to reputable makers.

Also, the OCZ supply is rated at 18A on each of its four 12V rails, which is good. (Obviously, you can't draw 18A from every rail simultaneously; that would make it more of a 900W supply.)

AMD maintains a web site that certifies components:

They don't appear to have tested many supplies for the 4770, though. (I don't think it's very demanding.) The one that you link to has a 6-pin PCI-E and a 6+2 pin one (usable as either 6 or 8 pin), so it probably will support a single high-powered card (HD5870, nVidia GTX295), or two lesser cards (with single PCI-E connectors, like your 4770).

Your current PSU looks to be a cheapie. I dunno about "improve performance", unless you're getting a lot of crashes now when you exercise the system. I couldn't find specs for it. Some people believe that PSUs should be rated much higher than the expected current draw, in the fear that a heavily loaded PSU would have a short life. The efficiency of a modern switching PSU is probably high enough that you wouldn't have to worry about excessive power draw from a high-capacity supply; it would only produce what the system needed. The attack on your wallet would mainly be in the purchase price, a one-time thing.

Before I tell the long story leading up to this and complicate things maybe someone has a simple solution I found some other similar posts here but no solution I Thinking?! What Was for me What Was I Thinking?! Against better judgement I let M online scanner scan my system no viruses or spyware registry items to clean two drives need defrag I m always real chicken to let anything mess with the registry but I googled and read of several people who used let it quot fix quot hundreds of items the only complaint being it tended to fix all but one for some reason or another D L d and ran erunt and did a backup I think--never used before so don t know how it should act--backed up system reg and current user reg and it took only about seconds So I let the scanner rip and it said it cleaned items with error and skipped by user and cleaned out some temp files Rebooted Windows welcome logged on with admin pw quot loading your personal settings quot quot saving your personal settings quot quot logging off quot back pops the welcome screen Several attempts same result Reboot gt safe mode same result several tries booted to safe mode last known good same result Used a somewhat flawed BartPE and got to Explorer and located what appears to be the erunt backups And the boot disk has the Windows check disk utility if that could help Before I do anything else I d really appreciate if some expert here has a trick to getting me back into Windows--hoping for something simple before resorting to more drastic measures Thanks for your help XP Pro SP almost fully updated Note I don t have a MS Windows CD just the OEM disk was provided and I haven t located it yet If that is the only solution it will depend on me finding the disk I hope it s not
