I've updated the hardware undervolting guide with the newer photo.
I've added your software undervolting guide to the first post.
The TME unlocking guide is very good, but you should add ICS9LPRS365BGLF. Quanta uses the Silego on some and the ICS clock generator on others. They are both pin compatible. I've got the ICS version others got the Silego version. The MOD is also applicable on su4100 devices.
Thanks for updating and adding my post.
I have updated TME unlocking guide in my original post. If there is anything else that needs to be corrected please let me know.
I might be doing undervolting and TME unlocking mod next week. Probably Monday or Tuesday. I will let you know if my laptop survives
I just want to clarify one more thing. What kind of RAM do you use while overclocking? Are you using unlocked 800MHz Samsung?
Here are the three (red, black and blue) 1366x768 wallpapers that come on Acer Aspire 1410 with factory pre-installed Vista. You can download them here (1.1MB).
In Vista and Win7 they are placed in "C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper" in XP they go to "C:\Windows"
Hard to believe that swapping a wifi card gives such a huge increase of 1 hour of battery life.
I think the reason for this phenomenon is a driver incompatibility. I had found a problem with Vista's power saving settings which I described in my undervolting guide. Now I've narrowed it down to the Wifi card. When coming out of standby the card won't switch to power saving until I reactivate it by switching to a different Vista power scheme and back to the scheme where the card is set to maximum power savings.

Did you apply some of the tweaks or is this with the default installation?
The tweaks that improve battery life the most are setting wireless mode to maximum energy saving and activate all the power saving features in the graphics driver(ePower manager will have to be removed to get full control, else it will overwrite Vista's settings on every reboot).
Read the "Optimizing battery life and undervolting" guides.
for the response, im getting 3:40 hrs on this with default vista that comes included in the box. i have nothing else tweaked or installed, the 3:40 is from the batterybAR. which has proven to be accurate.
i've only charged it three times but i heard people get 6hrs on theirs when it comes out of the box. should i be worried?
by the way when i first used my laptop i used ac power with my barttery in, so it was charging and installing vista at the same time, does this f up my battery capacity? cause im only getting 3:40 about three charges. shouldnt it be 6 when its default out of the box setting (its on balanced power mode btw)
