Q: R5-471T-534X vs R5-471T-52EE differences?

Hi, I have an option to get either one of these laptops but I cannot figure out the difference between the two. The spec datasheet looks the same. Can anyone please help. They look like great laptops but there is a price difference so I am wondering why. Thanks for the help.

I ordered the R5-471T-52EE from a retailer but received the R5-471T-51UN instead. Any explanation as to why this would happen? What are the differences between these two models?

I would check the memory. You may have a bad memory dimm. Run Memtest.http://www.memtest86.com/ or you could return the laptop for another one.

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.

I puchased a R5-471T-52EE on Friday (3 days ago) and the touch screen does not work.  After peeking around, I don't have Pen and Touch settings in control panel, and there is no HID Compliant - Touch Screen recognized in the Device Manager.  There's no value in doing a factory restore because it is like this out of the box. Is there something I could be missing, or do I need to return to Best Buy?

rpozun,
 
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.

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.

I have always turned off mouse precision for windows so there's no mouse acceleration on mouse or touchpad.If I installed anniversary update, then I get a large amount of acceleration that wasn't there before the update. Mouse is unaffected. Is there any fix for this.

A:R5-471T-52EE Touchpad Anniversary Update

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. The current driver is a generic HID-compliant touch pad driver from Microsoft. I have just tried installing a Synaptics generic driver, it did not fixed the issue.

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?

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.

Hi All, I have just purchases an R5 471T and doing some upgrading last night.  I noticed there are 3 Bios updates. As this is my first ACER, should I do the updates? I know there is a caution on updating BIOS but I just wanted to confirm Thank you,

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.

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.

seadoc67,
 
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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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/

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.

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?

I know quite a bit about computers but I'm not the smartest with hardware and how hardwares interact to make a "good" computer.

Hi, I bought a 19" wide monitor about 3 months ago. ofcourse the manufacture did not put a dvi cable in the box (which it was supposed to come with). So I've been useing the vga cable the whole time. My video card is the GeForce 7950GT. My main question is.... Would there actually be a difference If I used a DVI cable instead of a VGA, and if there was a differnce, is it worth me going out and buying a DVI cable. tahnks alot! -Nick
 

A:vga vs. dvi, what are the differences?

There would be a difference with using a DVI. I'm assuming your monitor is an LCD, in which case using VGA causes the originally digital signal from the video card to be converted to analog, then converted back into digital upon reaching the monitor. This results in a loss of quality.

A lot of people seemed to be confused on why IE has two versions in the -bit version of Windows Vista and which one they should be using I'm here to make this simple for those users How to tell which you are running To tell which version of IE you are running you just need to 32-bit between 64-bit Differences and IE go here and click About Internet Explorer The -bit version will say something along the lines of Version xxx xxxxx The -bit version will say something along the lines of Version xxx xxxxx -bit Edition Why two versions We only need one A lot of users are confused as to why Microsoft put both a Differences between IE 32-bit and 64-bit -bit and -bit copy of Internet Explorer in -bit Windows Vista The reason is quite simple really While the move from -bit to -bit is speeding up there are still addons plugins for programs such as Internet Explorer that do not currently work in their -bit counterparts A good example for a plugin that doesn't work in -bit Internet Explorer is Microsoft's Silverlight Plugin Which should I run nbsp nbsp Warning This is my person opinion if you disagree with it that is fine and dandy Try not to wage a war about it If you need to use Silverlight or any other plugin that does not have a -bit compatible counterpart I suggest using -bit Internet Explorer If you do not need Silverlight or any other plugins that do not support -bit Internet Explorer I suggest using -bit Internet Explorer

A:Differences between IE 32-bit and 64-bit

I don't recommend going 64 bit IE at all, even if you don't care about 32 bit plug ins.

There are big reasons to go 64bit for the OS, mainly to open up the address space, but for applications that don't need multiple Gigabytes of RAM, it really isn't going to matter.

In theory You might benefit from a wider registers, but in reality with most computationally intensive apps being coded in using the FPU or some extension (MMX/SSE/3d Now), so computation benefits of 64 bit registers will be mitigated.

Interesting bit:
I ran Peacemaker benchmark and scored ~20% lower with the 64 bit IE than the 32 bit version(~1000 in IE 32 bit, ~800 in IE 64 bit) . This kind of surprised me. I expected them to be essentially identical. Anyone else want to give it a shot?

I have three external hard drives, 2 x 750GB USB3 Western Digital, and 1 x 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black spinner.

All three have identical data on them, right down to the last byte ... both for the size of data itself; and the size of data on disk.

This is true whether they are opened on W8 or Windows 7 machine. Yet when I open all three of them simultaneously on the machine that had W8, but now has Windows 8.1 ... while they all show the size of data, the size of data on disk is different for each one! Despite the fact that all three still show identical data on disk on Windows 7. Or even on Windows 8 if I reinstall it on the machine which 8.1 is installed on.

Can anyone explain to me why this is so? It is important because having the data on disk the same confirms they are exactly identical.

I'm doing research for our company because our software is not working properly on a Win8 environment. It uses dotnet quite a bit for the front end and the licensing software we use. Our first hurdle was .Net Framework 4.0 with the licensing program but we have it working on Win 8 professional 64-bit v.9200. But on the Business Enterprise Edition (915440) refuses to let our license activate. I have not been able to track down if there are any substantial differences between the enterprise and pro versions, but apparently there has to be because our licensing program works fine on the 64-bit Pro version. If nothing else, has anyone found any OS differences in these two?

My guess is it has to be .Net related, because our code is 100% reliant on that to activate our user's software. Any help would be very appreciated! We are stuck.

A:Version differences

This problem is specific to whatever licensing system you are using. It sounds like it may be related to ActiveX or COM objects, which are specific to 32 bit and 64 bit systems.

I was wondering what the difference was between say an ASUS 6800GT and a Gigabyte 6800GT. The Gigabyte is cheaper by a couple of bucks, so I may go with that one instead of the ASUS as I had planned. I would just like to know what the differences are besides the sticker and price. Thanks.
 

A:GPU brand differences?

Judging from newegg, it seems to be a matter of core clock frequency, heatsink, and fan included. Faster Core Clock = Better.

The 395.00 ASUS one has a core clock of 350mhz. The 378.00 GIGABYTE has 400mhz core clock speeds. I'm sort of surprised that the GIGABYTE clock is faster, while being cheaper. Also, the GIGABYTE has 2 DVI outputs compared to 1 on the ASUS model. After looking at them both for abit now, I can't see any huge differences that constitutes the ASUS being more expensive. It most likely boils down to the stock heatsink/fan, which is VERY important. You'd have to ask someone who has the ASUS version if RAM on the card is covered by the fan. If it isn't you'll most likely encounter high temperatures. Same goes for the GIGABYTE.

I read the GIGABYTE reviews, and one guy's card came with the full version of Doom 3. That might be a good place to start gaming with your new system. However, if you do get an ASUS mobo, it might be best to get the ASUS version card. There should be absolutely no problems installing the two and getting them to play nicely.

One last thing: If you do go with ASUS, make sure to get the 256mb GDDR3 version, not the 128mb variant. I think it'd make a difference on such a bleeding-edge card.

I am trying to locate a PCI-X card to be used in a HP Proliant DualCore computer to get higher resoultion on my monitor (not for games).

Some people say that PCI cards will work. Most say that PCI-E will not.

Since I am using Windows 7 and the PCI-X cards are supposed to be the fastest, how do I find a PCI-X card with Windows 7 drivers? I also heard that a card designed for XP might work in "compatability mode", but have no idea how to do this.

Will this whole thing boil down to finding Windows 7 drivers for a PCI-X card?

Dick.

A:Differences in PCI, PCI-X, and PCI-E for Windows 7

PCI-X (PCI-eXtended) is an out dated, technology based on the old out dated PCI technology. PCIe (PCI-Express) has pretty much replaced PCI and PCI-X. In either case, you don't just throw a PCI-X card into your computer, you need to have PCI-X slots which most likely you do not have. PCI-X never took off in the consumer market outside of servers and mainframes.

PCIe is bar far the current fastest/best expansion connection available to computers at this time.

Isn't a laptop a PC as well? Do you mean a laptop and a desktop computer?

If nothing is displayed clearly on the "PC" and you are using an LCD monitor with it, it could be that the video controller card is not configured to match the native resolution of the LCD monitor. This causes the monitor to scale down or scale up the incoming video to fit the screen. This can cause blurry pixels.

What software are you using to display the downloaded pictures? If the sizes of the software's viewing windows (in pixels) are different on each computer, then the software is scaling the pictures by different amounts to fit the viewing window. This can cause blurry pixels as well.
