I want to overclock my acer aspire 5050 this the review: * Processor: AMD Turion64 x2 TL-50 (1.6 GHz, 512 KB L2 cache total, 256 KB on each core) * RAM: 1 GB 533 MHz DDR2 RAM (2 x 512 MB) * Hard...

I have the same system too. None of the tuners such as RIVA work well w/ integrated notebook card, and u r graphics card is pretty ghetto. I could however, download POWERSTRIP and tune up a minescule 300-400 MHz but it won't let me access memory clock. More than this I could do no further overclocking.

Windows does not come with pc specific drivers, you need to download them from the Acer web site, but never heard of a Aspire 5050, so choose your model on the page link

Problem in linux installation

Hi, I also have an acer aspire 5050 (AMD 64bit CPU).
It came preinstalled with Vista Home Basic which I decided to get rid of. I downloaded a copy of SUSE 10 Enterprise Desktop (5 CD iso's images from )and burn't them to CD, and installed it straigt off CD.
It installed fine with Gnome (havent tried KDE). There are certain problems that you need to tweak before it all works ok.

The 5 in 1 card reader wont work at all, but I have heard that it might in future kernel upgrades. 

The sound doesn't work untill you edit a file (follow the guide at after doing this and rebooting it works great.

The graphics was another issue, I have an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. I couldn't get 3d accelleration to work for ages, but have managed to now. First off you have to download the ati driver for the "Mobility Radion X300" for linux (x86_64 for 64bit CPU) from When downloaded just run it in a terminal ("sh ./ati*%$%*%$*%"). Then after rebooting (the tricky part for non linux geeks!) open a terminal, "su" to root and run "init 3" then log in as root and run "aticonfig --initial -f" when complete run "aticonfig --app=maya --fsaa=on --fs=4 --ovt=opengl" then when complete run "aticonfig --effective=now" then "init 5". Now log on and you can enable 3d in display properties (in control center). The 3d desktop is so much better than Vista could ever be. I have only just got my graphics card working and I havent messed about with all the settings yet so you can probably get it working alot faster with some tweaking.

If you're interested in porgramming or compiling programs for your OS you will need to "build your Kernel" this takes a bit of time but a good guide is at i skipped page one and some other bits)

Hope this helps, and you enjoy linux.
