Acer Aspire 9300-5317


Acer Aspire 9300-5317

Mark: Average

Machine is ACER ASPIRE 9300-5317, AMD Turion 64 x2, 1 gb shared memory, Chipset NVIDIA video chipset NVidia geoforce go 6300

  • SMP kernel, ACPI and APM installed ACPI settings to be refined
  • Network interfaces: Atheros 500 g wireless driver genmac atheros ar5005g (168c:001a), Nvidia mcp51 network interface driver NVidia mac driver from NickK (10de:0269), Setup as per Doug Bisset's advice for 2 network interfaces with the addition of netbios for os2 to allow other workstations to show in network browser.(from Genmac-user news group), No issues with drop out of data in file transfers so far.
  • Sound does not work yet but from RC3 install UNIAUDIO for this machine may need to use a back leveled version.
  • USB Resources does not recognise items plugged into ports, chipset compatabity issue I suspect. Mouse plugged in works but not shown as resource.
  • Panorama VESA used for video with the vain hope that the wide screen settings will work, ok so far but monitor inf's and settings are yet to be played with.

Setup was painless and once options set no added input was required. time to install was 15 minutes approx.

Apart from issues above I have no problems.
