    A call and a mail/fax with the billing of purchase should be enough.

    Does anyone know if you can output higher a higher resolution than 1920x1200 through hdmi? It says that's the max resolution on the 6550m page AMD Radeon? HD 6500M Series Graphics

    But I thought hmdi 1.4 could output higher resolutions than that.

    I decided to give your modded drivers another try today. And it gave me black screen like the last time. Last time I tried out last around 2 months ago. That's why, personally, I would not use modded drivers when it is unusable. I never have any type of this issue with acer's drivers.

    The latest 12.2 UP5 drivers are working fine with my laptop. You have to clean the drivers using the driver cleaner included then install the driver and it will work fine. I selected the ATI HDMI driver and the Intel v8.15.10.2559 driver in addition to the AMD driver because Intel v8.15.10.2622 gave me problems in the past.

    I did used their cleaner. Device manager showed vga displays. Try to get your laptop up from hibernation mode and see if you get a black screen. But I will try intel v8.15.10.2559.

    Agree with Upabove; the latets 12.2 UP5 gives black screen when waking the computer up from hibernation.
    I use the ealier Catalyst 12.3 Pre-WHQL UnifL which works good.

    Is it possible to get the 2,560 x 1,440 resolution from the Dell UltraSharp U2711 with the 3820TG somehow?

    Hello, haven't posted for a while here.

    I am out to date regarding my drivers for sure.
    I own the 3820TG with the HD5650 and still have the stock drivers for it from Acer (8.7X).

    Is it any good to install the recent Mobility Catalyst 12.3 ?

    Is there any noticable performanceboost or any other positive aspects that may favor the new driver?

    According to that verification tool, this notebook is not supported by the official drivers.

    Whatever, you can still install it manually by switching to dedicated videocard in the Bios and just install the new driver over the old one.

    Any other important upgrades for mainboard and the likes?


    Thanks
