    I have not touched any cables or the motherboard.

    I can't seem to get these properly working.

    The old ones (from Acer) show correctly in the device manager, but not the newer ones. Any tip?

    Try inserting a memory card. Does it work? Also, the card reader will usually only show up in Device Manager when a card is inserted.

    Finally managed to pick up a 3820TG from the internet with an exhausted research. Gotta say I love the machine for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic. Now if only TOR wasn't the same ol' grind. :p

    Are 3820TG's hard to find/sought after?

    I'm really considering selling mine, since I don't use it that much anymore.

    Yes ... up to now, they have been hard to find in the I5/HD5650 or better combination. The new Timeline 3830TG's have serious flaws. Put yours up on ebay, allow enough time and you should get a decent price for it.

    Hi Bronsky,

    I know this is a little off topic from the thread, but since you are talking about the I5/HD5650 combination and the 4820TG has that, will there be a good demand for the 4820TG too?

    Thanks!

    The 14" has a lot more competition than the 13" 3820TG and the 13" has the unique cooling system.

    I have managed to buy a really good and cheap second hand one. It has a core i3 cpu. I was wondering if I could fit a Core i5-560UM wich I have on the shelf
