    I've updated the bios, and I was quite a newbie with this, but it was in fact quite easy to do :p

    I was using the driver available on nVidia's Website.

    Now I'm using the 182.05 beta for Notebook.

    Do you have BIOS backup of 1.04 ver? I'm trying to find anyone who has it. I have problems with system stability after update to ver 1.10.

    Very weird... You may be able to get the previous bios by asking to ACER support I think.
    For me, the new bios works perfectly.
    Don't forget to say to the support what kind of problem you meet.

    hmm actually when i just bought it and run it with 3dmark06 i able to reach 6k points with 1204x768 and after i switch the driver to DOX forceware 181.22 driver in hoping to get a higher points instead it's lowering it to 5.3kpts. so i revert it back to original factory drivers from the Emanagement recovery settings but somehow it's stuck on 5035 points now. any idea where the problem lies? oh and i also updated my bios which is previously 1.09 to 1.10 but it seem doesnt do any significant changes and may i know what application that u using to monitor your heat?

    Why don't you try to use Vista 64Bits, you will be able to use your 4GB ram fully and not only 3GB...

    I would like to say that I used to have some problems with the Wifi with Vista 64Bits.

    It was like there was a malfunction and unable to make it work after some time of use, the light of the wifi button wouldn't work, so wifi too, even when I pushed the button.
    The problem was the driver provided on ACER website way too old!
    I've been to the INTEL website to get the last version of the 64Bits driver (Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows Vista* 64-Bit) for my Intel Wireless 5300, and guess what ? Everything is working much better, no problem issue anymore.

    I've waited about almost 2 weeks of test before submitting this problem. Hope it will be useful for 6935G owners who have met or will meet this problem.

    This tip has been now added to my review ;)
