Hello, Yes it's a µATX form factor so no problems. But you won't be able to use the pre-installed version of Windows.

well... its all a learning curve... installing new PC into old Acer Aspire T140 case and got it all done but the front panel connectors are not singular or pairs but as so..

PWR BTN - 2 wires going into a block of six with one pin blocked out on corner
HDD/PWR LED - 4 wires going into a block of 6

obviously Acer designed the case to only be used with their motherboards...

can anyone confirm that there are no "converters" or such and the only solution is to buy a new case?
thanks

A:Want to change ram in Acer Aspire 5570z

Do the following:
turn it upside down and with a find x-head screwdriver remove the panel covering the memory chips. Look at the modules and it will tell you what speed they are (as well as all the other guff). When you order the new ones, make sure you order the same speed memory - it should be obvious from what you see in the PC and what you see listed on line.

A:Hi. Can i change my processor in my Acer Aspire v5...

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.

A:Want to change ram in Acer Aspire 5570z

The Acer Aspire 5570 will accept either DDR2 PC4200 or PC5300. For maximum speed, you want to have all modules at PC5300. It will take 2 GB of memory in each of the two slots. The best situation is to have matched sets of memory with the same brand and size in each slot. Several vendors will sell the memory in matched sets of two modules.
For best results, do not use Value Ram, or other low priced memory. Get the best memory modules for latency and timings... usually published on the website of the memory maker.
Good luck to you.

Also volume wheel doesn't works and internal mic and web cam.

I would love if somebody could help me with this, i'm desperate and i can't find the answer anywhere on the internet.

this laptop should be working with vista or xp but now that i installed windows 7 nothing seems to work properly

Thanx again and hope anybody can help me.

A:[SOLVED] Acer aspire 5530-5444 several errors after OS change

Hello Mr. Magus and welcome to TSF!

Firstly I would like to say have you installed any drivers for your laptop since the windows 7 install? I believe this is your problem or at least part of it.

Having a look around i see that your laptop does not have any Windows 7 drivers. I guess you never ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Prior to switching OS. as there are no drivers i can only suggest reverting back to Vista as your laptop only has drivers for Vista,XP.

Thanks,
Altie

i toook off the side case on my tower and i was wondering if it would be better if it left it on.. since i have a fan and it would make it better for cold air to stay in..
 

A:Is it better to have the case on the side of the tower on or off?

Im not exactly sure, i guess it depends on the computer setup. You can check with a temp monitoring software like speedfan and check temps with it off and with it on. Personally ive noticed lower temps with the case off when i had no case fans. But recently i got a power supply with 2 fans, and have added 4 case fans. Since ive created a strong airflow through my computer, taking the case off would disrupt that flow and make the case fans pretty much useless, i see lower temps with the case on and all 4 case fans going.

Questions:

1) Going with Corsair H50 water cooler with dual 120mm fans.
Must I draw are from outside and exhaust inside case or can I get good results drawing air inside and exhausting outside ? CPU = AMD Phenom X4 9950 2.6 quad black edition.

2) May I unplug all my sata devices and hard drives and when building back in new case must I arrange the cables in the same ports to be seen or should the system see where the OS drive is and such no matter where there plugged into ? Oh FYI 3 drives internal non raid, drive 1 has Win 7 Ult. 64 and files, drive 2 has Win XP Pro 32 and files, drive 3 has all lossless music files.

3) New case is the Thermaltake Element V Black. FYI

Thanks in advance to all that answer me !

A:Moving my rig into new Full tower case.

For your first question, you may have to play around with the config to see what gives you the best temps. The instructions state to mount the fans so that they intake air into the case (mounted in the rear).

I have a Cooler Master HAF 932 -- I have mounted the H50 and fans in the rear intaking air and exhausting air. I have also mounted the radiator and fans at the top of the case intaking and exhausting. After all of that, the best temps I get are with the fans exhausting and mounted in the rear of the case.

I don't have an answer at the moment for your second question.

CatId except mine didn t come w a hard drive and instead I got a GB EGA video card All the other parts are identical Anyways I put it together and power it up and find that the computer continually shuts down and turns on again every few seconds So I shut off the power supply and disconnect the power cord After researching through this site I find that many others have had similar problems w this same symptoms I decide to give the quot bench test quot motherboard a try Before doing that I had removed the CMOS battery and left it off overnight Next day I put the battery back in and try the bench test skipping the video card and using on-board video plus the power case switch Lo and behold I am able to see the motherboard startup Gigabyte screen and it goes to the BIOS selection asking about using the default profile So I conclude that probably neither my motherboard nor power supply is DOA I figure that something of the case is touching the motherboard So what do I do now Do I have to create cushions using construction power to separate the standoffs from the motherboard in places Should I remove the I O shield plate so that it s not touching the motherboard Should I apply electrical tape around all edges of the motherboard Where do you guys suspect the touching is occuring and how should I solve that nbsp

Hi all
Might be a silly question but is there any sort of hardware adapter out there which allows me to fit a HALF HEIGHT PCI (Lan card) into a FULL HEIGHT slot and attach this properly to the case.

Plugging the PCI card in ito the mobo is no problem but fixing it to the case is a bit of a "Heath Robinson affair.

I don't want to get a new case just for this LAN adapter. I've currently fixed it with a piece of Duck Tape but obviously not the best solution to fix the card to the case epecially as this will eventully be a server which will be left running for MONTHS at a time.

Mobo is ATX form factor but case is a TOWER one.

If the steel backplate is removable/interchangable you could see if you could modify a full size one to fit your needs.

If you have a good friend that is a welder by trade he/she may be able to spot/tack weld an extension to the backplate using a piece of scrap backplate to fit your needs.

A:XFX 8200 Mobo & Ultra E Torque ATX Mid Tower Case

I have the same case; the cables are actually pretty simple and can't really cause any kind of massive damage. Basically, your mobo's manual should have a diagram of where each front panel cable is attached to the pins on the motherboard. This includes the power switch, reset button, main LED, and Hard Disk LED. The cable heads and pins are usually labeled and it's just a matter of finding positive [+] and negative [-] connections. Again, your motherboard manual should have a diagram. You can really just screw around with the wires until everything works, the worst that could happen is that it doesn't...

ok, simple question, will opening the tower case to clean my computer's cooling fans violate the warranty? or am I better off trying to arrainge servicing for my system for this specific purpose?I tried calling support to ask, but the agent didnt quite follow and seemed to think I was saying I had a fan failure, when all I wanted to know was if opening the case to clean it myself would void the warranty.so I decided to post here in the hopes that an hp employee versed in the terms and conditions of the limited manufacturer's warranty wouldnt take pity on this poor uneducated soul.

A:will opening the tower case to clean the cooling fans void m...

Greetings, This action will not void your warranty unless you cause damage. Shut the system down, disconnect AC power and disconnect all  peripheral devices. Move the system to an area where you can remove the side panel. Clean the sytem using compressed air and allow time for any moisture caused from using compressed air to dissipate. I periodically do this on all my HP desktops and it is wise to do this. I am not an HP employee. There is no official HP presence in this Forum. Cheers!

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.

That is hard to answer seeing how the software can vary between models. For the most part it is bloat-ware; shortcuts to promoted software by Acer, their recovery software, and some trial software like antivirus and Office. You will find this with most manufactures. When you purchase a desktop you can always delete and remove the advertisement shortcuts, trial software and install your own software preferences.

A:Random Reboots on Acer Veriton tower

Just a suggestion...rather than supplying a solitary event from BSV...I would supply all.A variation of the standard blurb many of us use:Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html .Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.When autoscan is done (screen comes up), click Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.Save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.IMO, there's little to be gained by reviewing a single BSOD error message...whereas a number of messages can allow perception of a trend and more detail on what may be going wrong with the system.Louis

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

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.

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 !!!

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.

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating.

The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating. Any thoughts?

I have tried everything I can think of I have already read through a few other threads with the same issue but none of the fixes work for me It gets to the acer screen logo not boot Acer will Acer Aspire E15 past loads that little loading circle then it just goes black I have tried pushing Alt F and it got to the acer screen and said please wait then the screen went black again I have installed Windows on a USB drive and have went into the bios and enabled the boot menu as well as change the order Acer Aspire E15 will not boot past Acer logo of the boot to the USB This got me a bit closer but still stuck After about minutes it finally went to a purple screen and a window popped up asking to install I selected my language and clicked install it went to another screen that says setup is starting and it's been sitting this way for about minutes now I'm out of ideas Don't have a clue why this is going on This is a friend of mines computer he said he was in the middle of playing a game and the laptop froze then something came up and then it shut off When it booted up it wouldn't load past the acer screen

A:Acer Aspire E15 will not boot past Acer logo

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.

Is this normal for a 6 month old machine..? I can't update windows 10.

To start off, this laptop has been horrible since the day I got it. I can't even believe how slow it is; it lags doing even the simplest tasks.That aside; I was prompted to update an AMD Catalyst Radeon (something like that) software, so I did. The screen went black and nothing happened for almost 10 hours.I eventually decided to turn off the power. Now that I turn it back on it's just stuck on "Acer explore beyond limits" screen.It has been like this for days now. I've tried turning it on and off again several times. It's just stuck at that screen.What do I do? How do I fix this? I need this computer for school.

I finally found a soluation after months of wondering why this is happening. It's my Virgin Media connection, the modem/router as when I connected to my phones wifi, teethering, Acer Care Center instantly updated so something within Virgin Medias network is blocking connectivity. I did try the Virgin Media's router as cause by diabling firewall etc. but with no joy I gave up but didn't try another connection until just now with tethering where as stated problem is sorted. I will report this to Virgin Media and post back anything relevant to this.

There is a side panel on this thing with two obvious set screws and a kind of grip handle on the panel which suggests you should be able to pull it directly out from the back.

Remove the screws, pull hard on the handle -- it doesn't budge.

What do I have to do?

Incredibly Acer support will not even touch the issue claiming it would void my warranty if I damaged something.

Double check the Power switch/Reset/Speaker/HDD indicator/Power indicator wires are plugged in the correct places. Sometimes the diagrams are not real clear on exactly which pins are the right ones for each. Check the jumpers on the MB to ensure they all are set to what the book says. Could be a jumper fell off or was not set properly.

hi, I am going to upgrade my graphic card to ATI 5770 so I need a new power supply which has power about 550--600 watt. But the most frustrating problem is that I failed to find a proper power supply with the correct dimension.
I have an HP pavilion e9300 which uses a very wired power supply tower-150mm(W) 86(H) 140(D). But so far all the PSUs I found is the standard size --150mm(W) 86(H) 150(D) which cannot fit in my setup.

So could any PC God give me some suggestion, please??
Is any PSU with the size of my tower or can I just simply install a bigger PSU which can still successfully power up the comptuer?

Thx in adance.
 

A:Power supply bigger than the tower - frustrated by HP PSU tower

If the power supply will physically fit your case, it should work fine with your computer. Will the extra 10mm interfere internally with anything inside the PC?

My Acer Aspire 5612z, Dual-core celeron, 2GB ram, vista home premium 32bit, has two separate problems. Screen is filled with vertical red blue and white vertical stripes, if I tap the screen frame then the picture is ok for 30 mins or so, then goes stripey again. (Poss fault on FL board?).
Second, Laptop boots, 20 seconds, to Acer screen then stops.
Can only switch off power from that point.
 

A:Acer Aspire screen problem and only boot to Acer screen

Tapping the screen you could have a loose connection from the LCD Panel to the MOBO connector, but you see if you did the screen would dim out. In your case you have the the same issues that tell me that the LCD Panel is faulty. If this unit is still under warranty then have ACER service the unit or take it to ACER dealer who can either send it back to ACER or they can order the panel and replace it for you at no cost, but then it has to be under warranty. If not you'll have to pay the cost of ordering the part, labor to install it. Find out cost prior to signing any agreement.

On your other issue, did you replace or upgrade the battery or memory? If not then remove the battery and plugin the power only. Try this again does it boot the ACER logo and Windows. Can you put your ear down to the keys or palm rest and hear the HDD spinning up?
If not either the HDD is DOA or faulty power module on the MOBO or just bad MOBO. Again same as above if it's under warranty call or take it to ACER factory service dealer.

Make sure if you had a good battery on this laptop that all switches are switched to the lock mode for the battery.

Hi,
I have just recently bought a new case for my desktop as it was having overheat problems.
The new case has 4 cooling fans.
Once everything was connected and turned on I noticed a horrible static type noise from the speakers that stays at the same volume no matter where the volume has been set.
I use a M-Audio 2496 sound card. I thought it had blown. So removed it and reloaded the onboard drivers. Still the noise.
The static noise seems to come about with hard drive activity. i.e. the flashing hard drive light?
The new case fans have LEDS. Could this cause a problem?
The hard drive holder mounts the drives on rubber stops. I thought maybe they needed to be earthed, but when i touched an earth cable to the 2 hard drives , no difference.
Appreciate any help?
