    I've managed to enable virtualization on my 6935G with BIOS v1.13 by following instructions on the following thread....Proceed with caution this involves modifying your BIOS!

    http://marcansoft.com/blog/2009/06/enabling-intel-vt-on-the-aspire-8930g/

    I can confirm afterwards it is possible to install virtual machine software I have tested with "XP Mode" In Windows 7.

    It seems Realtek has removed some options in the last driver (2.36).Indeed, in the Sound management (Control Panel of Windows), in the speakers properties LEVELS tab, most of the levels are missing so the Internal Subwoofer level too.
    I suggest to get the previous version that I'm using:
    Realtek Driver 2.32

    After you have installed it, you must be able to see these settings :

    You are now able to adjust the level of the subwoofer;)

    Anyway, the center level will be useless here as the 6935G doesn't have center speaker like the 893xG.

    I'm gonna to update the main page of my review to warn about this little problem.

    Also install the Vista version of launch manager(make the installer run in compatibility mode) to make the touchpad works like normal again :)

    Opps, you are right Darika, it is 2.1 speakers. But this application "e-audio" is not released for windows 7 yet. Hence I cant hear sound from the woofer. Anyways, I will install the driver of a preivious version you suggested and tell you the outcome.

    Thank You

    Does anyone of you out there knows if there is a skin available to the keyboard of Acer Aspire 6935/g I tried to search hard on the internet and came across none which are compatible for it. Any suggestions?

    Bingo Darika!

    I did as you said and now I can hear the surround sound. Bravo! Bravo!

    Now there is just one issue with my audio level touch panel which is:
    It does not respond accurately while controlling sound. Rest all controls work fine, just the volume meter is not accurate to control sound so I have to use the volume icon to increase/decrease volume. This happened after I installed windows 7 but it was working fine in vista. I guess there is some application/driver that I need to install for it to work accurately.

    As I mentioned some days ago, if you have installed the CIR ITE Driver for Windows 7, you must replace it by the one made for Vista, and the audio touch panel should work like before ;)
    I've also had this problem with Windows 7 CIR ITE driver, so I rolled back with the Vista driver version.

    Well I think you sould try updating your BIOS to the latest ver1.13. But I wonder if you faced this problem when you was on Vista. If yes then I guess it is something to do with BIOS. Even Darika, on her review has stated on her review of Acer Aspire 6935g that after she updated her BIOS there was improvement in gaming graphics.

    Also, a word of caution, which is updating BIOS can be risky and if done incorrectly can permanently damage your system. You can find the latest BIOS on the acer website but even they warn about updating unless told by any personnel of Acer to do so.

    Hope that helps.

    Well, I suggest you contact your manufacturer and update the bios.

    Scorpio,
    i think you have throttling problem. Let me explain this. While you are playing games it is possible your CPU overheats (or BIOS thinks it is overheating) and CPU starts downclocking thus causing low performance.
    i suggest you read this thread and inform yourself more on this issue. Theres also solution for acer6920G that i think works to on 6935g.
    at least you can see how to check if you have this trottling problem.
    Good Luck.

    Anyone knows how to control the CPU fan? SpeedFan doesn't work, and others say that fans sensors are not found... I heard that Acer blocks that options... Is there someway to turn around this?

    Hi

    I see from your laptop specs that you have n-draft wireless. I own acer 6935 and wanted to know how to find out if I have n-draft or not.
