Acer CinemaVision is a nonlinear video stretching technology that produces minimal distortion in the center of the picture. The Letterbox option displays widescreen movie content in its original aspect ratio and adds black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.
"Color profile" allows you to choose between "original" or "Acer ClearVision."
Acer ClearVision is a video enhancement technology that detects video content and dynamically adjusts the brightness/contrast/saturation levels so that you do not need to change the color settings if the movie you are watching contains scenes that are overly dark or too bright.
In Audio Settings: Use "speaker environment" to choose between "headphones," "SPDIF," "2" or more speakers depending on your audio equipment.
43 "Output mode" should be set to "Stereo" if you are listening to speakers, Dolby surround," or "Virtual surround sound" if you are using headphones.

Taking your notebook PC with you
This section gives you tips and hints to consider when moving around or traveling with your computer.
Disconnecting from the desktop
Follow these steps to disconnect your computer from external accessories: 7 Save any open files. Remove any media, floppy disks or compact disks from the drive(s). Shut down the computer. Close the display cover. Disconnect the cord from the AC adapter. Disconnect the keyboard, pointing device, printer, external monitor and other external devices. Disconnect the Kensington lock if you are using one to secure the computer.
When you are just moving within short distances, for example, from your office desk to a meeting room.
Preparing the computer
Before moving the computer, close and latch the display cover to place it in Sleep mode. You can now safely take the computer anywhere you go within the building. To bring the computer out of Sleep mode, open the display; then press and release the power button. If you are taking the computer to a client's office or a different building, you may choose to shut down the computer: Click on Start, Turn Off Computer, then click on Turn Off (Windows XP). Or: You can put the computer in Sleep mode by pressing <Fn> + <F4>. Then close and latch the display. When you are ready to use the computer again, unlatch and open the display; then press and release the power button.
Note: If the Sleep indicator is off, the computer has entered Hibernation mode and is turned off. If the power indicator is off but the Sleep indicator is on, the computer has entered Sleep mode. In both cases, press and release the power button to turn the computer back on. Note that the computer may enter Hibernation mode after being in Sleep mode for a period of time.
What to bring to meetings
If your meeting is relatively short, you probably do not need to bring anything with you other than your computer. If your meeting will be longer, or if your battery is not fully charged, you may want to bring the AC adapter with you to plug in your computer in the meeting room. If the meeting room does not have an electrical outlet, reduce the drain on the battery by putting the computer in Sleep mode. Press <Fn> + <F4> or close the display cover whenever you are not actively using the computer. To resume, open the display (if closed), then press and release the power button.
Taking the computer home
When you are moving from your office to your home or vice versa.
After disconnecting the computer from your desktop, follow these steps to prepare the computer for the trip home:
Check that you have removed all media and compact disks from the drive(s). Failure to remove the media can damage the drive head. Pack the computer in a protective case that can prevent the computer from sliding around and cushion it if it should fall.
Caution: Avoid packing items next to the top cover of the computer. Pressure against the top cover can damage the screen.
What to take with you
Unless you have some items at home, take the following items with you:
AC adapter and power cord The printed User's Guide
Follow these guidelines to protect your computer while traveling to and from work:
Minimize the effects of temperature changes by keeping the computer with you. If you need to stop for an extended period of time and cannot carry the computer with you, leave the computer in the trunk of the car to avoid exposing the computer to excessive heat. Changes in temperature and humidity can cause condensation. Allow the computer to return to room temperature, and inspect the screen for condensation before turning on the computer. If the temperature change is greater than 10 C (18 F), allow the computer to come to room temperature slowly. If possible, leave the computer for 30 minutes in an environment with a temperature between outside and room temperature.
Setting up a home office
If you frequently work on your computer at home, you may want to purchase a second AC adapter for use at home. With a second AC adapter, you can avoid carrying the extra weight to and from home. If you use your computer at home for significant periods of time, you might also want to add an external keyboard, monitor or mouse.
Traveling with the computer
When you are moving within a larger distance, for instance, from your office building to a client's office building or traveling locally.
Prepare the computer as if you were taking it home. Make sure that the battery in the computer is charged. Airport security may require you to turn on your computer when carrying it into the gate area.

Disconnect the power adapter and install the charged battery pack; then check that power is supplied by the battery pack. Check the Power Adapter Check the Battery Pack
If you suspect a power problem, see the appropriate power supply check in the following list:
Check the Power Adapter
Unplug the power adapter cable from the computer and measure the output voltage at the plug of the power adapter cable. See the following figure
Pin 1: 19V Pin 2: 0V, Ground
If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter. If the voltage is within the range, do the following: Replace the main board. If the problem is not corrected, see Undetermined Problems.
If the voltage is not correct, go to the next step. NOTE: An audible noise from the power adapter does not always indicate a defect. 3. 4. If the DC-IN indicator does not light up, check the power cord of the power adapter for correct continuity and installation. If the operational charge does not work, see Check the Power Adapter.
Check the Battery Pack
To check the battery pack, do the following: From Software: 1. 2. 3. 4. 1. 2. 3. 4. Check out the Power Options in control Panel In Power Meter, confirm that if the parameters shown in the screen for Current Power Source and Total Battery Power Remaining are correct. Repeat the steps 1 and 2, for both battery and adapter. This helps you identify first the problem is on recharging or discharging. Power off the computer. Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery terminals 1(+) and 6(ground). If the voltage is still less than 7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery. If the voltage is within the normal range, run the diagnostic program.
To check the battery charge operation, use a discharged battery pack or a battery pack that has less than 50% of the total power remaining when installed in the computer. If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature. Re-install the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not emit, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the DC/DC charger board.
If the touchpad doesnt work, do the following actions one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a non-defective FRU: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. After rebooting, run Touch pad/PS2 Mode Driver. Run utility with the PS/2 mouse function and check if the mouse is working. If the PS/2 mouse does not work, then check if the main board to switch board FPC is connected well. If the main board to switch board FPC is connected well, then check if the touch pad FPC connects to the main board properly. If there is still an error after you have connected the touch pad FPC to the main board properly, then replace the touch pad or touch pad FPC. The touch pad or touch pad FPC may be damaged. Replace switch board. If the touch pad still does not work, then replace the FPC on Track Pad PCB.
After you use the touchpad, the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time. This self-acting pointer movement can occur when a slight, steady pressure is applied to the touchpad pointer.
