It doesnt really matter anymore, im no longer at the school
ps: i tried a bios update.
Due to interest today and after discussion with Acer this promotion will last until Friday 20th February.
Is there any progress on this issue? I have 6 AcerPower F6 machines to rollout. 3 of them will be OK as they connect to Mimio whiteboard devices which do not have this problem, but the other three will connect to Smart Board SB680 devices which do exhibit this problem. I could not find the firmware upgrades on the Steljes url you previously published in this thread. I have written to Smart support desk but they have yet to come back with a solution. The workaround is to unplug the Smartboard during the boot-up process and to plug it back in, but this is tiresome for the teaching staff.
How do I go about getting the powered hubs at 10p each?
The powered hubs for 10p each were being sold as part of this promo.
Did you buy your machines from this promo?
Last look on the calendar it was March?!!? :D
Sorry offer ran out at the end of Feb. New offers are now on the site.
As for the BIOS update no progess and I don't think we are going to get a solution. Sorry.
Regarding the Smartboard issue, is the powered hub the only solution right now?
The powered USB hub is the only solution at the moment sorry.
