    I'm sure you can gain some more battery life with Windows. You may increase your battery life about 10-15%.

    Always the GIRLFRIEND:p
    I'm not sure the warranty will cover it but you can give it a try. Replacing the keyboard will be easier and it's not expensive. In Thailand, the keyboard replacement is about 1070Bahts (30 USD). If you try by yourself you may make more damage. I think 30 Dollars is not so expensive to avoid more damage and get a brand new keyboard.

    darika, I don't know if you or somebody already posted

    but have you ever tried to open your notebooks to clean the cooper (from the cooler)?

    these days I tried to open... however looks like that I have to unscrew all the notebook just to clean it.

    well, I opened because when I bought my notebook

    so I had to open it.

    i think it wouldnt void your warranty. Give Acer service a call.. :D

    I opened mine.. since acer highpoint malaysia says it's ok to do so..

    an-ex acer technician also told me it was for 1 week warranty .. LoL..

    I've opened mine when it was going a little funny and the warrenty was still valid. Its pretty simple too I had no problem and never opened a laptop up before, though my old toshiba didnt survive after when trying to fix something :/

    I've been able to make a new test of Battery Life by playing Video under Windows 7. To play the videos, I've used Media Player Homecinema.

    Movies played :
    - Fast and Furious 2009 (1080P)
    - Blood the Last Vampire 2009 (720P)

    I've been able to watch these movies without to play the end credits for about 3h10mn.

    So if you look back at the Windows Vista video test, Windows 7 offers 30mn more of video playback.

    Hi everyone!

    I've had this laptop for several months now. I got it for two reasons, first, its a great great hackintosh (SL titanium solid, almost Macbook Pro clone, far better than any Windows!), and M$ gaming, which is brilliant as e-sata is just as fast internal drive.

    I've been eagerly waiting for Battlefield 1943 to be released, and bought GTA IV which after two months of tweaking I finally got it to work for hours on end, without hick-ups, frame drops, overclocks, etc, all medium to high settings, around 28fps "steady", even in high explosion settings, etc. I have the GDDR3 version, 6935g 864g32mn to be precise. In the end, I found the problem was two thing, one was CPU temperature, second is GTA which is very badly ported. Once its fixed, its great, until then its a headache. I cannot confirm this, but I really think disabling pagefile completely solved the issue, but I went a "99 permomance tweaks for Vista" guide I found. All very similar to XP normal tweaking, but Nvidia Control Panel tricks and pagefile did the trick.

    One of the issues I later discovered, was that CPU throtteling made the game stutter like crazy. When around 66-68 (never went over that) the game dropped to 12fps. This is easily fixed with a good cooling pad. No need for hi-end stuff, a good regular one drops 8-12 degrees and that is more than enough.

    Anyways, I've found out that VMX technology is locked in BIOS by Acer... WHY ?!?! Service help is NOT helping me. They just dont answer. Anyone know, or please check, if version 1.13 of BIOS wakes this feature up please?

    Where can we find info on this BIOS update?

    Anyways, just have to say, darika, you're cute as a button (sorry, couldn't resist, I know this is tacky...) and thank you very much for your thread! It certainly helped me decide on this laptop early this year.

    And a big "hats off" to Acer, made a fantastic laptop, I used to hate and speak really really badly of Acer. I am ultra picky when I spend cash, and now I have one.

    Very very recommended!

    ACER BIOS 1.13, BETTER GRAPHIC SUPPORT?

    I've updated the BIOS wich was 1.10 to the new bios 1.13.
    Since the update, the Windows 7 Score for the Graphics rating has a little bit increased from 6.3 to 6.4. This is the only thing I've noticed from now.

    I will let you know if there's any other improvement.

    The main page of my REVIEW has been updated.
