Question about Acer Aspire 6930-6455 Notebook PC

1 Answer

I bought an Acer Aspire 6930 2 weeks ago because my old one has some flaws in the keyboard and some other problems. I picked the Aspire for his possibility to play online games on it. But somehow my old computer (also on vista) plays better and faster then my new one but has a slower processer, less ram and a way less graphicscard. I got a NVIDIA GeForce 9300 Gs 256 card with up to 1535 mb Turbocache, with updated driver. Installed directx 10. Did defragmentation of hard disk. Turned off some useless programs that are activated during start up. Only thing i dont like atm is the fact that my harddisk is splitted up in 2. Can anyone help me?

...or should i say, i had the same problem. yeah mine is a 6530g which is fairly similar, i had that problem as well until i dumped vista and put xp on it, although i did have some driver issues while doing that but nothing i couldnt figure out or get from the acer website.... and yes acer has been splitting the hard drives into two partitions lately, i have no idea why.... killing vista worked for me so it definitely isnt your hardware, i hope someone gives you some better help soon though.

    ..i was thinking, so you go to run and type "msconfig" and you said you took off some unneeded startup items, i would guess that you removed them that way... this might help as well, go to: "http://www.processlibrary.com/" and identify the unneeded processes (in 'msconfig', of course) in "startup", and "services" after checking the 'hide all Microsoft Services' box... that helped, and continues to help me ...also try unistalling some of the "crapware" on there to free some room... i had to do that before and it did help because some of those programs try to access the internet (for whatever reason) simultaneously which slows your system... other than that, and the obvious driver problem possibility, i'm not sure what else it could be ...hope it helps :)

Acer factory backup does not start my computer


I have the exact same laptop as you. I've had this problem before. I bought the DVD's from Acer to reinstall everything and there are times when they don't work. I left it sit for a week and it stayed on the same screen. I would just keep trying, or order the DVD's from Acer. It will cost about $30 but might be your only chance.
I don't know if this is a flaw of this computer or not, but even with a different HDD in it it does the same.

Acer Keyboard Will Not Work


try using an usb keyboard, if you can use the usb keyboard it's an hardware issue and you need to plug it to the motherboard yourself or just ask the manufacturer to do it for you.

If an usb keyboard doesn't work you have a software issue and in case it isn't a virus, all you have to do is a system restore.

I have an Acer Aspire 6930 laptop and I do not know how to enable the wireless network. It was working fine several days ago and now it will not pick up the router. I think I have everything set up...


On a 6930 I believe the button is above the keyboard, embedded in the speakers. Look for a button with a radio telescope/satellite dish icon and make sure it is lit/flashing.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Keyboard locked during bootup


My Acer aspire 3003 keyboard and touchpad both started to lock up recently. I use it with the battery removed, it avoids the problem. The battery wasn't holding much charge anyway.
