    I have W7 Pro on my Acer running Virtual Machine in XP mode for all work I need to do in XP (half my office is still on XP). My ATI GPU works fine in XP mode.

    Hi again!
    I have some trouble with my screen. When I'm moving it on Intel the screen is breaking display what is really terrible. It is just interrupting on some positions of screen. On ATI I have only green crashes on some positions. I think that is technical issue but does anybody meet this problem?

    There are no mobility drivers for Windows XP. Only desktop drivers are available :(

    BookArc Stand - BookArc Stand - Twelve South

    Has anybody used something like the BookArc with their 3820TG and connected it to an external display?

    I'd love to use this for when my laptop is on my desk, so I don't have to squint at the small 13.3" display...

    I just leave the Acer flat and plug in a full size keyboard and 24" IPS LG display.

    Nice. My IPS is coming next week (this one). Going to try the BookArc this weekend with my 20" Display.

    I'm hoping for some positive results in terms of temperature, plus I'm quite tight for space on my desk so the flat isn't really an option.

    What are you doing in terms of sound? Through HDMI and built-in speakers?

    The Pannisonic Toughbook thread users are burning up the contest. I think we need more of a showing from Acer users.:D

    My 3820TG just died this morning. Yesterday everything worked just fine, but when I tried to start the acer this morning nothing happend (charged battery inserted).
    Since I bought the laptop I replaced the RAM ( one acer DIMM died after 2 months ;) ) and the hdd with a ssd.
    Does anyone know if i can rma it without the ssd and without hdd because the original hdd is occupied elsewere?
