    Default Acer Aspire 8930G Owner's Lounge

    Hey everyone! After browsing this forum, I found that we don't have an owner's thread for Acer's latest Gemstone Blue notebook, the 8930G! I got the laptop today and it is a beaut! I got the 6243 model with BluRay.

    If anyone here has tweaked it or has some useful tips, post it here! I'm pretty novice in regards to notebooks so it would help me just as much as other members! A quick guide to what to install and uninstall would be greatly appreciated. Also appropriate drivers would be beneficial.

    If I'm too new to this board to post an owner's lounge, my apologies.

    I just uninstalled all of the Acer Game Zone and its affiliate games. They are all ripoffs of free internet games. Do you guys think I should uninstall the 60 trial of McAfee software? What do you guys think of Avast and other free antivirus/spyware?

    No way. AVG or Avast are much much better. I prefer AVG though.

    my 8930g came with 1 320 gb HDD. does the 8930g have 2 HDD slots so i can add another 320gb?
    also as my 320gb is in 2 140GB partitions, wouldnt that leave me with 140gb,140gb and a 320gb partition if i added another 320gb HDD? it would be useless as i already use 1 for running stuff (C drive) and 1 for storein movies and films and other data(D drive), so the 320 gb(E drive i guess) would also be for storeing data i guess?

    i think i might need one as i already filed 50gb lol.


    i think avast is better, and for me it detects more viruses.

    There are pictures on Plasma's great review of the 8930G. I'll link it in my original post. Also, I found the removing battery trick to fix the CineDash actually works! My CineDash was not responding so I figured I would give the trick a try. Shut down the computer and pull out the battery, wait 5 seconds and reinsert it. Restart your computer and it should work. If not, load up Launch Manager because that's the program that controls the CineDash.

    Also, yes, there are two HDD bays in the 8930G. I have yet to add another HDD but someone on NBR has already successful added another one. I forgot who it was so if they are reading this, fess up.

    I can now officially join the 8930G club. Ordered one today and it comes next thursday!! Anyone got any tips on how to transfer files from PC to Laptop. Ive got about 10GB of Itunes music sitting on my PC and will need to move it over to the laptop as the PC is going, going, gone!
