    yep, it came to my mind too. Tried to do sth through Nvidia control panel by setting brightness, contrast, and gamma but didn't get much improvement...



    Hm, but I have another problem with this notebook. I've just put my own copy of windows and had no problems with any of the drivers, got them all from the acer support website, with any but one. When I install the webcam utility through the setup and I start the 'ACER Crystal Eye Webcam' application, I get this message:'Camera not found!' I go to the device manager and there it is, it says no driver has been installed for it. I try to install the driver through there but it says that it found the driver but that it's missing a part of the inf? I tried to download and install the utility again, I tried to find the driver itself somewhere else, but nothing. Did anyone have such a problem? thnx in advance for your replies. :)

    ok i have a problem with running a few games

    i ran Halo 1 yesterday and it ran Perfectly Fine but now after i did some updates it says "A problem occurred initializing Direct3D. Hardware acceleration maybe disabled, please run DXDIAG.


    Also when i run Bioshock the window opens and it the top it says, "Bioshock not responding" this is visible for a second and then the window maximizes but it doesn't take up the whole screen, there is a 2 inch gap on the right i can see my desktop however i can run the game

    the game seems to be running fine (I hope that means my GPU is good)

    6920

    Specs:

    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2Ghz T7500
    Ram: 3 GB
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS

    Next time, there a button called edit when you have "updates". And for your question, I know you can remove mcafee(unless you don't have another anti-virus) and microsoft office. But keep everything with the name acer. For the rest I can't remember

    4GB is easy to add.
    A TV Tuner can be done through USB or ExpressCard.
    The T9300...that's the kicker.

    @LKR: I did a clean install, which wiped out Acer's boot-up sequence, thus neutering the Arcade Instant-On feature.
    @CQ: OK, I'm settled in. On it!

    Giant bump, but totally worth it - look what the Acer Chaser found today on LV2Go!
    A new Nvidia driver release from Acer - 176.37 from August 19 - in all the colours of the wind! WHQL, too, so you don't lose your Blu-Ray compatibility either.
    Vista 32/64
    XP 32/64

    I'll be trying these sometime soon, after I do a Complete PC Backup.

    I like the look of the new P8x00 series CPUs and their 25 watt TDP goodness.
