Hello, i have the same power problem with my aspire 7750G (the laptop turns the charging on and off fast one time, then after a little while after stops charging until i manually replug the powercord (pull it out then in again) and the power led is blinking.
Where can i find the " advanced diagnostic test for the system board " ?
Nobody really chimed in on my wanting to upgrade to an i7.
I see that our laptop came with a i7-2630QM in some configurations, probably mostly due to cost. I'm looking to go with an i7-2670QM which i'm sure won't be much different in terms of heat output. Probably going to happen sometime within the next week so i'll let you guys know!
Also after repasting my cpu i'm getting ~mid 70's after a few hours of gaming on my i5
With Turbo Boost wont surprise me, that feature is realy bad on mobile cpu,s anyways lol... also being Acer is another issue, im avoiding Acer forever now.
Only options left that are more safe than Acer for sure is: HP/ Asus or Dell
cause i saw various models ventilation on bottom and i must say its far superior design to the crapy Acer sadly.
(also always noticed beter temps on cpu in their models)
Acer eitheir have very bad design on ventilation, also dont care at all and they must use cheap thermal paste more cheap heatsink fan inside for sure.
Lastly must add their support to keep updated with drivers is the worst out there too,
if you reinstall OS you no longer have the newer drivers available cause they dont care to update their site at all.
FYI messing with settings i was getting steady 30-40's on 1280x768... 1600x900 probably isn't going to happen. For those of you who play bf3 more and know what's the best "playable" settings please let me know.
I'm going to sell my 2 Windows laptops & bump into the non retina MBP or the retina...oh also going to sell the iPad 3 64gb. & also these two 256gb ssd's..
I miss my MBP, plus I'm tired of drivers & random slowdowns & all that jazz. Plus, they come with a 650m now which is better than the 6850m I'm running now for games.. & I'd really like to get into editing, & the iPad just doesn't cut it.
Don't get me wrong, I'm still a Windows guy. It's not the software aspect that's getting to me at this point. It's the hardware. Sure I had fun building a desktop from scratch a few years back.. but at this point, I don't have time to do random troubleshooting/modifying or creating drivers, blah blah. Yes, it's nice to learn, but it cuts into the time of doing/learning things that can make $$$
Less is more. All I need is phone, camera, laptop.
