Namun, sepertinya 4530 dan 4520, bukannya gpu 4520 lebih bagus pak, kemarin coba 4530, main game saja lelet.

Enggak mungkin pak. Jelas GPU di 4530 lebih kuat dibanding 4520. Mungkin ada faktor lain yang menyebabkan lelet game bapak. Boleh tahu game apa itu? Dan apakah semua driver sudah install sempurna serta up to date?

i Purchased the Acer 4530 2 months ago (8 August 2008) and the BSOD problem still laptop's current BIOS ver is 0.3326...i wonder if the later version of BIOS as posted above would solve my problem?

Dear Geoffrey, you may try the new BIOS. BTW, the BSOD on WinXP you're referring is when the SATA HD setting accidentally switched back to AHCI? Or BSOD because of other factors?

Geoffrey Tan said...

well actually my lappie under AHCI mode cause i sent my laptop back to the dealer and he "fixed" the prob for me(I Guess what he did was enabling the AHCI in XP) ...However random BSOD occured at random time frame..say 3 times a not sure what's the cause of it...COuld it be AHCI or other possible factors..

Ps : Im from Malaysia Btw :D

Hi Geoffrey Tan in Malaysia, you should check the BIOS settings and change the SATA to IDE for your WinXP to work properly. As far as I know, only Windows Vista is capable to handle AHCI mode properly.

Well, you may contact me via YM if you found any problems. Thanks for visiting my blog.
