I'm an owner of a Acer v3-471G. i5 ivy, GT630M
During idle state, without a cooling-pad, while on battery, does the fan ever stop? like does it stop for a while and then start again; or does it spin continuously?
With the laptop set to "power saver" plan, and with the CPU cooling set to "passive" in the power plan settings, does the fan still spin continuously?
Can all you post your acers' temperatures during Idle-state, internet browsing only, and torrent download only, running on battery set to "power saver plan. Without using a cooling-pad, on a flat surface, both in an air conditioned area and non air conditioned area, and the program you used. This would help many users to know when something is going wrong or when it is starting to go wrong.
After installing the Acer crystal eye webcam program, does the webcam image get darkened? and what is the resolution of the camera? I know it says HD webcam but the quality seems very poor for a 1.3MP.
Can all of you take one picture of something using the webcam in a well lit/daytime area and post it as a sample.
Thank you all of you fellow Acers
as for the webcam blackening problem, just on your webcam, click on the video enhancement button which looks like an eye, at the bottom left corner, then click advance and then camera control and finally tick the low light compensation..hope that helps..
