    Hi - could anyone with a 6930G, 6935G or 6920G take a photo of the secondary drive bay? This and this thread suggesting the chassis can accomodate a second drive. This would open up the possibilty of a hybrid SSD + HDD system, which would be excellent! Though the first seems to have problems fitting a drive into the system.. so is it a 2.5" drive bay or a 1.8" drive bay?

    This is the closest thing to a photo of the chassis, as it looks like Acer have pulled access to Service Manuals.

    Did you activate the Surround effect?

    Do you mean where the optical drive is?

    'Surround On' is diplayed at the bottom of the screen so I think it is activated.

    When I run the 5.1 sound test in eAudio manangement, all 5 built in speakers (left right middle and both the 'rear' left right) are emitting sound but not the subwoofer..

    I tried adjusting the natural base level under the dolby tab in playback device but I don't hear any diffrences in the bass...

    I'm on vista and the installed realtek audio driver is the latest though.

    Don't tell me the tuba cinebass booster is malfunction or the bass quality ain't that obvious?

    I've never heard there was much bass effect. On 6935G I think there's not 5 speakers as the 8930g. I can see only 2 speakers on the top of the keyboard and one on the back of the notebook on my 6935G. I know the 8930G (much bigger) has 5.1 speakers but I'm not sure there's 5.1 on the 6935G. I think the 6935G has 2.1 speakers only.

    In the audio manager I select "Built-in-Speakers". The sound is quite ok but not as good as a external spekers. But for a Notebook I think the sound is quite good anyway.

    I guess that thread is related somewhat. I'me curious what this user is telling us about a Acer 6930G:

    I was looking(my K key is dead too..) through the laptop and found a secondary Bay for sata hdd. APPARently it doesnt bloody fit a 2.5inch sata drive(i ripped one from the maxtor 4 mini) so what the hell is up with that? is there like a smaller HDD specifically designed for the acer? or do they just plain suck?


    Is there a secondary HDD bay? It would sound like it's a 1.8" drive bay or a thin 2.5" bay. Can someone confirm if it exists or not. Wouldn't want to make a purchase decision based on misinformation. Would LUV to have a SSD+HDD system..

    I don't see any room in mine for a hard drive, unless you remove the ODD.

    This video of a 6930G claims 2x320GB's in the HDD slot to give 640GB.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6TYRpd3u48

    Along with the previous two mentioned posts would suggest there is some room in there. Can anyone have a close look at HDD bay to see, and if so, please take a photo and describe what is possible for the rest of us who may want to purchase one of these?

    I Had the exact same problem here friend, I even took it to the Acer Service Center in Bangkok thinking it was a lose wire connection/ hardware glitch. The Acer people told me that it was perfectly normal and that was the way it was meant to be.
    If you want to see the effect the Tuba Cinebass has on the sound, go to your volume icon (in taskbar) rt click > select Playback Devices, rt click Speakers > Properties > Now go to the Levels Tab, and while you are playing some music, Raise & Lower the Level for the Internal Subwoofer. There you go, now you know that the Tuba is working. Cheers

    My subwoofer was at 100% that's why I didn't notice any sound problem Any way I've just try to low the sub when playing Terminator 2, well, it's much better with 100% subwoofer
