Hi, is it possible to open this laptop to replace the HDD with an SSD, or it would void the warranty? Thank you

On the V Nitro overview page Intel's RealSense technology is mentioned, with the note that availability varies between different models. I've not yet found a model that stated on the model's details page that it has an Intel RealSense camera, so I wondered if the Aspire VN7-592G (NX.G6KEH.002) has one, and if not, are there other models that do have RealSense?

I've been informed that the VN7-592G is not currently shipping with the RealSense camera at this time. I understand the interest in the technology and will provide feedback to the appropriate teams.

Hi all hoping someone has an idea V7n-592G issue Aspire Audio to help out here nbsp Within the last week the following issue has started nbsp After a reboot the audio levels are fine is super loud like it used to be when I first got Aspire V7n-592G Audio issue this laptop Once I adjust the levels either Aspire V7n-592G Audio issue up or down via slider fn volume etc the audio immediatly cuts the sound down like I could adjust it to and it would be half volume I can hear almost nothing at volume of say This is for everything from windows sounds to web content to stored content nbsp Seems to me to be software related I have the dolby package that came with the OS and also the Realtek HD software sure it came with the build out as well nbsp I would think maybe re-installing those or removing them one at a time to see if that was the cause would make sense but I cannot seem to find where I could find them or look for updates for them nbsp Anyway any thoughts on what the fix may be or where I can find the software would be appreciated nbsp Thanks

Hey Guys I am realy tired of lag spikes. games run smoothly but every 10 secs there comes a frustrating fps dropThis is my system:CPU: Intel Core i7 6700HQGPU: Gefouce GTX 960MRAM:16 GB1TB HDD+256GB SSD + All of my drivers are updated.++ recently I noticed when I unplugged the AC power there is less lag spike, but overall fps drops on battery.+++ I searched and I found that some other Acer V laptops got this issue as well. it seems it's a hardware rather than software issue.  really Acer? why do you name it a Gaming laptop while it can't play a game smoothly? and please play some games with this before relase it.

A:Aspire VN7-592G lag spike & fps drops in almost ev...

Hi, If you searched on the internet I am quite sure that you found also the answer. It is quite simple. The FPS drop is due to thermal trotthiling, the moment when your CPU and/or your GPU reduces it's speed in order to avoid damaging the CPU or GPU. You can test if this is the case by using intel XTU and monitor your temperatures and see if your CPU trhrottles when you play a game.Solutions? Well, a few could help but they are not easy. First try to reduce the settings for the game... Improve cooling by changing the thermal paste on your CPU and GPU. I did the latter on my 591G and man the temperature drop was amazing. I don't know what they use in the manufacturing, but for sure is not very effective at heat transfer. At least it's not toothpaste. You can also try to use a cooling pad, but I am not sure how effective it will be the latter. Also, I remember somebody here suggesting a third party application which allows you to control the fan speed manually. You can try to search it on the forum. As far as I am concerned, the fans don't crank up to 100% power even if the temperatures are at the thermal throttling level. This is probably how Acer programed the fans. I tried once at 100% and it is much more loud than the "maximum speed" at which normally the fans run when I don't use other application to control the fan speed.

Hi, yesterday, after a quite long session on Battlefield 1, I noticed backlight bleeding on my screen (see the pic below)...That's quite annoying, and i'm worry that it could get worse over time...When I bought it, the screen was perfect, just a blocked green pixel on it, but nothing too bad. Am I the only one concerned by this ? What can I do ? I'm in France, if I send my laptop to the customer service, how long is it going to last before i get my unit back ?

A:Uncontrollable mousr - Aspire v15 nitro vn7-592g

There are chances that the issue is with your touchpad drivers. You are advised to download and install the latest touchpad drivers by using the link below:http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers Alternatively, you can also reinstall the touchpad drivers by following the steps below:1. Press "Windows key" + "R" keys. This will open "Run" window.2. In the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit "Enter" key. This will open "Device Manager" window.3. In the Device Manager window, expand "Mice and other pointing devices" and double-click on your touchpad.4. In the mouse properties window that comes up, click "Driver" tab.5. Click "Uninstall" and "OK" to uninstall touchpad drivers.6. Restart your computer and Windows should install the touchpad drivers automatically. Alternatively, you can install them manually by referring to the link above. If the issue still persists, you are advised to take your computer to nearest Acer service center for further assistance. To do this, the following link can be helpful:http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service Hope this will help you.

Getting ready to pull my hair out over this one.  I recently did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro on a brand new Aspire VN7-592G laptop and have noticed that the Intel(R) Smart Sound Technology (Intel(R) SST) OED device gives a Code 10 ("The Device Cannot Start") due to "the driver was not loaded because it failed its initialization call."Does anybody have any ideas about how to fix this issue?  I've tried both deleting the Realtek and Intel drivers, rebooting, and then installed the audio drivers followed by the Graphics drivers and this did nothing.  I did read that bluetooth devices may interfere but I've disabled those and rebooted several times with the same issue.Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

Hello, I had a failing hard drive that was replaced in warranty just a couple of days ago. However the hard drive that was installed on my computer is not a new one - CrystalDiskInfo reports it has been turned on 450 times. Is that a normal policy to send refurbished hardware as replacements?  Also, I've noticed the hard drive does an unfamiliar clicking sound when beign used. (and since it's the same hard drive as I've had before, I assume the usual working sound should be the time, which it isn't)Check disk and CrystalDiskInfo don't show any errors though, so I'm not sure if it's a bad sign or not? I will definitely take it to the authorized repair shop that did the HDD replacement but I still thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
my battery recently reported permanent failure, it was under warranty so I contacted Dell support to request a replacement. I've provided all the necessary information and had also ran some diagnostics, the person I was in contact with was happy with all the information provided and informed me that they'll send me a replacement.
Few days later he messaged me the below. I'm not quite sure why they need my whole laptop for this, I'm not really happy to have it collected and kept by them for what I can imagine will be several days if not  weeks. Is this a normal course of action for faulty battery?
"I forgot to tell you that the warranty on the system is Collect and Return, which means we have to collect that system and have that fully diagnosed and checked through our repair team. "
 Thanks.

A:Replacement of battery under warranty

It depends on the system you have.  If the battery isn't user-removeable (i.e., it's inside the system rather than easily removed by sliding a latch externally),it's not a user repair and you will need to return the system to the depot for service.

1. I upgrade my RAM to 12GB by making use of the two provided slots. 4 Gb Ram the implicit one and adding another 8 Gb Ram.
2. If I dual boot my laptop with Ubuntu Os.
Kindly let me know the warranty status in both the cases.

A:Flex 2-14 - Warranty: Replacement policy

Hi wavare_ajinkya ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As a general rule, CRU (customer replaceable parts ) will not void the warranty as listed from the hardware manual . However most upgrades on this model shows that such are considered FRU (field replaceable unit) , meaning you would have to open up additional parts and might require skill and specific tools thus CRU ID is N. (item6 page 72 ).
 
1. Upgrading your RAM however would not void any warranty.
We had same issue discussed on this thread . 
On quotes: " Similar to this query is this case  for the Z500 replacement of optical drive which is also a CRU Id - N and this thread. 
 
 
Warranty agreement :
 
What this Warranty Does not Cover 
- failure or damage resulting from misuse, abuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, natural disasters, power surges, improper maintenance, or use not in accordance with product information materials 
-damage caused by a non-authorized service provider
-failure of, or damage caused by, any third party products, including those that Lenovo may provide or integrate into the Lenovo product at your request
 
Warranty is not covered if during the process of modification , damage or accidents may incur both on the replaced parts and the original devices ." 
 
The answer would be no , upgrading  the harddrive ,RAM will not void your warranty not unless that original parts gets damage because of or during the process of upgrade. 
 
For best measure , you may give Lenovo Tech a call so that they would be able to note it on your account for the pc that you have plan for upgrades .
 
2. Changing the original operating system would not void the hardware warranty , but support for the software such as the new or original Operating System (example to restore it back/ drivers issue etc.) would be users responsibility and functionality thereof. 
 
Hope this answered your query .
 
Regards

I receive a Smart Drive error of "Immanent Failure, back-up immediately"... and of course its been telling me this for close to 2yrs now. my Question is this, "Is my Hard Drive covered under its manufacturers warranty or HP's warranty?". My Laptop is no longer warranted by HP but the manufacturer has a 5yr. warranty on its internal hard drives and my hard drive isn't 5yrs old yet. The HHD I'm referring to came installed within my laptop at the time I purchased it. Anything else you need to know? Thank you.

A:New week old Inspiron 11 3000 3558 (touch) stuck or broken button on touch pad--warranty parts replacement?

This is an fyi about the final resolution of this issue.  After a lot of arguing dell sent me what was supposed to be the touchpad but what I got was only the plastic palmrest no touchpad. Then because it's a "daughter card" I got more argument about the touchpad.  I got hot enough that I opened up the back, lifted out the battery, took out the two funky looking screws and the whole pad just fell right out of the machine.  The buttons seemed fine so I screwed it back down, put the battery back in and closed it up.  It's now great, the button was indeed hung up on the edge of the plastic palmrest.  This is a very well designed inside machine, it all screws down and all connections are with plugs or ribbon cables.  I wrote back to dell and told them they need to fire their tech manual writers because they're idiots, a monkey could have done this.  Apparently it is not easy to find only the mouse pad it's generally sold with the palmrest from what I can tell.  This whole machine is so well designed I scratch my head why the cpu isn't socketed unless they decided there was no room for a socket etc, which I can see that argument.  So if your mouse pad quits try popping it out first it may just be hung up.

Hi all, Got a broken screen on my S7 and have a screen here to replace it. I've done many screen replacements on various laptops, ipads, iphones etc but not done one of these yet. There isn't much in the service manual on it (only explains how to detatch the LCD assembly) and there's no info on the internets anywhere on removing the LCD. I can't see any screw holes or anything on the new LCD i have here so i'm assuming the LCD is attached using an adhesive. My guess is that its similar to a macbook pro where you have to hit it with a heat gun then detach the screen with an opening tool. That said, that is just my guess. Can anyone on here tell me how its done before i have a sort of stab in the dark attempt myself? Cheers!

Friend cleaned his heatsink and now fan is failing, intermittent. Initial search from google is it's 90mm CPU fan so wondering if he can order stock and then swap it out, or if he needs a parts number to reorder. He doesn't want to open it again so I'd like to have the part there when I arrive next week to swap in for him, if possible.

It's sounded like a Hoover since he got it so does it need the more expensive quiet model suggested above or will the stock ones here suffice? https://www.google.com/search?q=92mm...w=1067&bih=533

and it's $35 (free shipping). Whether the OEM one has enough proprietary features to justify the expense over a generic, I have no idea.

There's no way to upgrade a video card in a laptop unless it's something from ASUS, MSI, Alienware, (If you're lucky)

But even if you could, the upgrade would probably be anywhere from $200-$600+ maybe even more. Old 7900GTX Go cards are still fetching roughly $100 on Ebay

Hey Guys,After an unfortunate fall my Aspire V5-473P-6459 has a damaged LCD screen. The digitizer seems to work fine so I ordered the replacement LCD screen only. (http://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=ASPIRE%20V5-473P-6459&brand=Acer) When I tried to remove the old screen, I expected to find four screws holding the screen in, but instead there are plastic covers overtop of the metal tabs on the LCD screen. I have removed all the wiring, but I cant figure out how to get the screen out of this plastic casing. Does anyone have any experience with this, how hard is it to replace the LCD but keep the digitizer, are they always glued together, is it more work than its worth to try save it? I cant find much info online for the V5-473P so any help would be appreciated, thanks!

You may only need to replace the Touch digitizer if the screen is undamaged.

Was it charging before you replaced the "iSSD board"? If it was, then the board is the problem.Maybe the "wrong" board is causing something to get crossed or shorted.

A:ASPIRE V5-571P touch screen replacement ?

You may only need to replace the Touch digitizer if the screen is undamaged. It is glass in front of the display.See the third item down herehttp://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=ASPIRE%20V5-571P-6604&brand=AcerThe manual doesn't show how to do that though.It might be a lot easier to just buy the complete ass'y.

Hello everyone!

I recently bought a new keyboard for my Aspire 7741G. I wanted to replace the old kb with the new one, but i`m having problems removing the old keyboard. I`ve unscrewed all screws, but the top "plate" (the one that holds the keyboard) is still holding somewhere in the middle. Any advice on how to remove the keyboard? Or if someone knows where to find a service guide/manual for this laptop. Any answer is appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
 

A:Solved: Acer Aspire 7741G keyboard replacement

I don't know about Aspires, but while replacing a HDD in a Sony Vaio, the final screw holding the top plate was underneath the keyboard. All around the keyboard edges, there were "almost invisible" brackets holding the keyboard down. Had to use a very small screwdriver to carefully pop them.

This laptop is only a few months old. Recently, in most cases when the battery goes down to exactly 24%, it switches off. It does not go into energy saving or hibernation, it simply switches off, losing all unsaved user data. Destroying the user's data is about the worst crime in the computer world, so this needs some reaction, apart from the fact that battery run time is shorter than promised. I have run through the battery recalibration exercise (charge fully while off, boot, go into safe mode, let the battery run empty) to no avail. Is there any better method for battery recalibration on this computer? The first information I need to localise the fault is whether the electronics responsible for shutting down are in the battery or in the computer. Please let me know, if anyone knows.

A:VN7-592G GPU temp/throttling

Hi, Most probably most of the people don't check carefully what causes the throttle, so they assume the CPU. They just see the frame drop. Your game is quite GPU intensive as it is written on steam. You should also post an image to see how much your cpu usage is compared to the GPU. And I notice something odd as well. Your GPU frequency is at 540 MHZ which is well below the maximum speed which is 1097+boost (I assume you have a GTX 960M). And it never reaches that speed, even at the beggining when your temperature is well below the throttling point. The only suggestion from my side, is to change the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU, and it will help a lot. I did this on my 591G and it helped a lot, however I cannot tell you in games, since I don't use it for gaming, but in stress tests is quite clear that it improved the temperatures.

Hi,I have one of the earlier revisions of the VN7-592G that came WITHOUT the intel realsense webcam that was introduced in this model from January this year. I'm trying to download the drivers for the older webcam but they appear to have been removed from the Acers drivers webpage. Anyone know where I can obtain a copy of the correct driver? Also, the Acer hardware detection software is showing as 'Not supported on this Computer', so I can't determine the precise make and model of the camera. Anyone else faced this issue?Regards,Mike

Hi,I have one of the earlier revisions of the VN7-592G that came WITHOUT the intel realsense webcam that was introduced in this model from January this year. I'm trying to download the drivers for the older webcam but they appear to have been removed from the Acers drivers webpage. Anyone know where I can obtain a copy of the correct driver? Also, the Acer hardware detection software is showing as 'Not supported on this Computer', so I can't determine the precise make and model of the camera. Anyone else faced this issue?Regards,Mike 

A:Camera Driver VN7-592G

Hi Mike Download & run Speccy. This program will tell you the Vendor of your webcam (plus other components of your laptop). Then go to the vendors website - they should have a support page with all available drivers. Download & install it, and it should then work. Just create a system restore point in case things go wrong.

I plan to put very fast SSD into VN-592G, like 512GB Samsung 950 Pro SSD PCIe Gen.3 x4. Is there a compatibility list about such a devices?

Anyone out there who did a bios update on the VN7 592G can confirm if ram speed is the same after bios update?? (2133mhz)Thanks in advance. PS: I asked this question because I did a bios update on a toshiba laptop and ram speed decreased from 1600 to 1333mhz after update and there was no way to access ram speed in bios on that laptop. I hope things don't go the same way with acer.

My brand new Aspire V 15 Nitro continuously restarts when not connected to power. The battery is fully charged, but still it restarts, stays on for about 30 seconds and then restarts again (and again). I have the newest BIOS version, and have updated most of the other drivers as well. Any ideas on how to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated, as I spent a lot of money on this laptop and I will need the battery for school. Thanks

HI, Please use HW monitor and check the current capacity of the battery and the wear level. If you have extremely high wear level this can be the issue. Also did you update the AMT driver from intel? AMTIntelIntel AMT Driver11.0.0.116663.0 MB2016/04/08Download

I have a problem with my 2 months old VN7 592g. Everytime i use it on battery, the notebook works few minutes (around 20-30), then restarts and keeps on restarting until i plug the adapter again. The restarts intervals are shorter every time to the point, when the notebook only boots and restarts after few seconds. Battery is in good condition (barely used), drivers and bios were updated several times. I believe this is software issue, as after few restarts i see some window repair screen, which will last there long time if i dont choose any of the options. And battery voltage is cca 12,5 volts when plugged, but falls down slowly to 11,5 - can that cause the issue?

Hi, I sometimes plug my V15 Nitro Black Edition via HDMI into the HDTV in my living room. Unfortunately the TV has no overscan option that I can find in the settings, and I'm also unable to find it in the Intel graphics properties or Nvidia Control Panel. Anyone have any idea what I can do? I've tried setting up custom resolutions through the Intel properties which does have an option for underscan, but after setting a custom resolution, it makes no changes at all. 

A:Overscan Option for VN7-592G

I found two things which possibly won't help you. "In order to get the picture to fit they could change the overscan setting on the TV (if it's there). A universal alternative for an Nvidia card is to use the Nvidia Control Panel ? first change the resolution to one appropriate for the TV (720p or 1080p) then look for the 'adjust size and position' settings and shrink the image to fit the screen."and"After playing around with the TV I found the setting to fix it. For those using Hannspree there is a setting under screen size which is by default set to Auto. This sets the LCD to think the input signal is TV." I looked at my Samsungs settings and under Picture Options there is two settings set to Auto.Maybe there is something on yours that you overlooked."if its a monitor, and not a TV, why would it have the Overscan feature at all?"
