Acer Laptop Widescreen Display Problem


I have uploaded windows 7 onto my acer 7735g laptop and i no longer have wide-screen display on the desktop or when any program is running. How can i restore widescreen. I have tried acer online technical support but their reply was not much help. The laptop was purchased new in september just before windows 7 was released. At present there is no other programs added or any files made or transfered from any other computer (ie as it left the factory).

Vaio Laptop Display Dark

Three times now since upgrading to windows 7, when my sony vaio laptop (model vgn-nr498e) either turns on or wakes up from sleep mode, the display doesn't come up. It still displays, and in the right light you can faintly make out the screen, almost like it is still displaying, but the backlight isn't working. After the first time, i tried just doing a cold power down, but when i turned it back on, the display was still dark. I eventually got it shut down properly within windows and when i turned it back on after that, it came back up perfectly fine.

I downloaded the latest chipset drivers from the intel website thinking that was the issue. But it has happened twice since then. Both times, if i am able to do a proper shutdown or restart from within windows, it will come back up just fine. At first i thought it was a hardware issue (bad connection or something), but the fact that there is no flickering or anything like that, and a simple restart from within windows brings it all back fine makes me think this might be something else.

Widescreen Hd Lcd Monitor

Due to a failing monitor and my poor eyesight i'm thinking of upgrading my existing non-widescreen 19" lcd monitor to a 23/24" full hd wide-screen lcd monitor. I am planning on connecting this new monitor to my pc's ati radeon hd4870 1gb/gddr5 using a hdmi cable.

I just wanted to check a few things about how the windows desktop and programs such as word, outlook, ie8, etc. Would look under this new setup:

- Will the desktop & windows programs appear as non-widecreen with vertical black borders down the left & right hand sides?

- Will the desktop & windows programs appear stretched so that they fill the wide-screen?

I use windows 7 home premium 64-bit.

Display Problem With Display Driver When Multitasking

Just installed windows 7 home 64 bit a few weeks ago. I have been having a problem with my display driver. The screed flashes and turns black and then comes back on with a message in the lower right of the screen that reads "display driver stopped responding but has recovered". I have attempted to download and install a driver from amd web site, which is supposed to be the correct driver. When i attempt to install this driver my computer restarts because of a corrupted driver. Windows won't let me install the driver that is supposed to be the correct one. The graphics card is a ati hd3470. How do i fix?

Also i am missing other drivers for my fitjitsu lifebook a6220 like audio for hdmi output and many more. All was working fine with windows vista, now im missing several utility drivers i called fujitsu they say they are waiting on microsoft! If windows 7 was to be released all parties should have been sent a fix with all drivers not wait for the consumer to purchase windows 7 and have to deal with all the problems!

Acer Monitor X223h Problem

I have been running windows 7 pro. (Clean install) as a dual boot (xp) on my lenovo thinkpad r60. There is one problem that i have not been able to fix & that is when i want to connect a acer external monitor - x223h or al2216w. Windows 7 does not detect the monitors at all.

In other posts i have read that i just need to click the "detect" button but this does nothing. The acer & lenovo site both don't have any windows 7 drivers for these monitors & when i rang them for help they told me it is a know problem with windows 7. Has anyone had this issue with acer monitors & fixed the problem ?

No Signal With Acer Al2216 Monitor

I have used this acer monitor with 32 bit xp system and upgraded to windows 7  64 bit system. On initial hookup everything worked fine i then had to get data off the old computer and hooked it back up and the monitor then showed no signal. So i unhooked the old computer with xp and rehooked the new windows 7 computer and it shows no signal as well. Please advise how i can get signal back to monitor and if it is advisable to swap computers if i am going to have this issue. I still need to use the old one with the data that is on it.

Acer Aspire 6930 Problems

Since i upgraded my acer aspire 6930 from vista to windows 7 i have been having many issues, including the blue screen of death twice. Another problem is updates. Whenever i attempt to download updates it takes me directly to the vista updates page and then just sits there for ever "checking updates". In an attempt to force my system to use windows 7 updates i went directly to microsoft.com and surfed my way to the windows 7 updates. Now it's "searching for updates on this computer" it has been doing this for approx 20 min and nothing is happening. Not to mention it won't find any becausei haven't managed to download any since i upgraded.

Among many other minor issues, the last problem is the fact that when i go to programs through the control panel and click on 'turn windows features on or off' it sits there for quite a while but when it's done the screen is blank.

I'm thinking the upgrade hit a snag, part of my computer thinks it's still vista while others act like windows 7. Of note my bf who has the exact same system as i do - bought at same time - and upgraded the same day as i is not having these problems and certain features on his system are completely different from mine.

What do i do? I still have the recovery disks from when my system had vista on it, do i try to recover it from those? I'm reluctant to use the 7 recovery disks because i assume they will have the same issues. Please help.

Acer Aspire One Webcam Not Working

I have an acer aspire one 10" model w/ built in webcam. I purchased in july 2009, model came installed with xp. I recently upgraded to windows 7. Acer will not support me because i have upgraded and they insisted i purchase tech service for assistance. Ridic! The device manager displays webcam and states it is working properly. It also states driver updated. I have uninstalled it restarted and reinstalled, but it still is not working.

I use to be able to click it open, now  when i click pic it just displays the information but no where on my computer am i able to actually open the device for picture purposes, quite frustrating in finding answer on web, seems to be a lot of people giving answers or links to driver scan sites.

Broken Acer Upgrade Dvd

I installed my windows 7 upgrade dvd after i received it i believe some time in january 2010. As i put the disk into a dvd container, it broke. I tried acer customer service who told me to contact mentor media. I tried but there was no response from mentor media so i complained to the canadian corporate office and the better business bureau. Finally someone left a message with my order number. I tried accessing the mentor media site with the order number to no avail.

I never received a replacement disk and was told today that there was no way of getting it because mentor media was out of existence. How can i get a replacement of a disk i need to re-install a windows 7 upgrade? Otherwise my acer computer may be useless. Perhaps looking for someone i can pay to copy their acer upgrade dvd [ the green one] and send it to me or create an iso file so i can make a replacement.

Acer Win 7 Upgrade Offer

I bought acer computer on 28/1/2010 and immediately ordered upgrade and as it refused to accept my visa debit card i had to pay by telegraphic transfer to the bank in czech republic. Order status still says pending payment but i have been advised that mentor media have definitely received payment. I emailed them several times and never got a reply. I phoned acer who were diabolical and kept saying it is being handled by mentor media but the contract is with acer as everything up to the order confirmation is from them. It is only when it gets to payment that it changes to payment in czech republic.

I have been cut off by acer a couple of times and they refuse to take on board all my information plus refuse to put me onto a manager. I bought the computer from staples in oxford, england as my son said to get this one as it had windows 7 upgrade offer and they say it is acer who is dealing with this but acer pass the buck to mentor media who are more or less dead as they never reply. Pass the parcel has nothing on this and i am absolutely disgusted by all this.

Acer Aspire Refuses To Shut Down

I bought an acer aspire 5738 just before christmas and sent off for the windows 7 upgrade disc and installed it. It was working fine until today, when all of a sudden it refused to shut down.
I've left it for over an hour, and all it that happens is the screen switches off after a while. Every occasion so far, i've had to hard shut down the laptop. I've tried restoring from an earlier point, closing everything down via task manager before shutting down and the various windows diagnostic tools, but nothing seems to be working. I don't understand why it wasn't a problem until now, and is now screwed up, as i haven't installed any new software in a couple of months. Can anyone help me?

Power Options Page Doesn't Display "dim The Display" Option

I just installed windows 7 on my laptop and the power options page doesn't display a "dim the display" option, nor do the keyboard commands to dim the display do anything. I am running a lenovo g530 machine and there does not seem to be driver support for windows 7 on their support page. However i downloaded the mobile intel 45 chipset graphics driver for windows 7 and i downloaded the newest bios update; nether seemed to solve the problem.

Acer Win 7 Home Premium Oem

I have an acer aspire desktop pre installed win7 home premium oem x64 – it is needing a complete clean re install, only thing is i don't have a windows 7 home premium oem dvd. I only have a retail win7 dvd that i purchased a while ago for my partner- so is it possible to use the win 7 home premium dvd retail to re install my acer oem?
 
Does it work by changing the ei. Cfg file from – channel – retail to oem?
 
Or just by removing the ei. Cfg file?
 
Would any of the above work and if not is there another way around this? Now for what i mention on the above and having read the microsoft laws i am assuming this is boarder line from being illegal. As all of the above has been purchased by myself. And i don't want to use the recovery partition as full of bloatware.
