    I guess I'll just keep trying until I get some improvements. Although, I think I may have screwed up something putting it back together. The led on the power button doesnt work anymore. The button works, but not the led. Hope I didn't sever a wire or something taking it apart.

    How do you remove the buttons? Just pull them out?

    On a side note, I've been playing CoD MW3. This laptop handles the game with everything maxed out, but zero AA. Game looks amazing on the little screen. Some scenes like world war 3 taking place in NYC Harbor just leave you in awe. The 3820tg continues to impress me the more I use it.

    Use wet cotton batting on the front of a knife to clean between the keys.

    It is an amazing little notebook. Even with HDMI run through my 1080p LG 75 hz IPS display, the Acer does not skip a beat running MW3.

    No :(

    This should not be that hard. It's always so with computers, sooner or later you'll be happy just having it back the way it was before you decided to fix the "problem" lol.

    Any ideas on what to do next?

    Well that's a bummer. I would uninstall CCC and the Intel driver, restart, go to device manager and uninstall both the dedicated and integrated graphics, restart and just install Acer's stock drivers. This should ensure you start over on a clean slate, barring running any cleanup utilities of some sort.

    Dual fan/heat sink cooling reappears.

    I still think Acer engineers had the more elegant solution but this P330 looks like a monster. With dual cooling design, Throttling should be a non-issue. Still waiting to see. Still don't think I'll be getting rid of my Acer anytime soon.

    Hey guys, recently I plugged my 3820tg to an hdmi monitor and lost the hdmi audio driver... In control panel/sound I can't see the hdmi audio. When I try to install the hdmi audio driver it's saying No driver is supported in the driver package. Took it on the realtek page R2.64. I tried with a previous version no sucess. Currently running stock acer switchable drivers with 11.10 installed on top...

    Don't!

    I did this, the knife went through the cotton and scratched the paint off the keyboard backplate. Not like I even use a sharp knife, just a letter opener.

    You should use a can of compressed air and blow out the dirt.
