No audio output installed in my aspire 5100 laptop

Suggest you download the Audio driver, AND install it.

[ A Driver is a small piece of software written, so that the Operating System can 'communicate' with a device.

Windows XP and Windows 7 are just two examples of an O/S.
The audio chipset soldered to your motherboard is a device ]

Acer Support > Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook PC > Downloads and Support Documents page,

You can see there are 5 versions of Audio drivers listed.
How to know which one to use?

Click on them one by one, and look.

1) The first one listed shows it is for Windows XP, and the 32-bit usual version.
(XP_86 )

If you have XP Home or Pro use this one. (And NOT a 64-bit version of Pro)

2) The second one listed is for Windows Vista, and the 32-bit version.

Go on.

3) The third Audio driver listed is for Windows Vista also. It is also for a 32-bit version of Vista. However this one is a newer version, and has bugs worked out over the older version listed above.

For laptops using Windows Vista, and the 32-bit version, this is the one to use.

4) The fourth one listed is for Windows XP, and the usual regular 32-bit version.
However it is an older version. The version in Number 1 above is newer.
The one to use.

5) The fifth audio driver file listed is for the Windows Media Center Edition. (MCE)

It is an older version, but the only one listed for Windows MCE.

[ Notice all audio drivers are for a Realtek audio device.
You have a Realtek audio chipset soldered to your motherboard ]

How to know which version of Windows you have?

A) For Windows XP left-click on Start, then right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.

When the System Properties window comes up, you will see what version of Windows XP you have.

If it is Windows XP Pro, and does NOT show 64bit, it is a 32-bit O/S.
(The usual)

B) Windows Vista and Windows 7:
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then right-click on Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.

If it is 64-bit it will say so.

Going back to the pop-up small window, that comes up on the right.
The driver file.

Make sure there is a green dot in the small circle, to the left of -
Save File.
If not left-click in the empty circle to the left of - Save File.

Now go below, and click on OK.

A small window will come up on the left.
In the heading of this small window, tells you where the audio driver file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.
Write it down.

[ For Vista and Win7 it will be either Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads ]

Desktop: The audio driver file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents.

[ For Vista and Win7;
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents ]

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents.
DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

[ For Vista and Win7;
Left-click on the Windows logo button. Then left-click on Documents.
DOUBLE-click on Downloads ]

When you see the audio driver file, DOUBLE-click right on it.
In the next 3 small windows click on;
Next, Next, and Finish.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart the computer.

Ive just bought a new windows 7 home premium laptop. The problem is that when I do a word document and I save it and put it on my USB, I put it in my windows vista laptop because it is connected to a...

I think this has nothing to do with the Operating System (Windows 7 or Vista). The issue may be because of the different versions of MS Office. As regards, MS Office 2007 files can be opened normally with Office 2007. However, if you wish to open Office 2007 files with Office 2003, you have to install MS Office compatibility Pack, which can be downloaded from Microsoft site.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have no idea to insall my adobe to watch shot videos like bob marley live concert

Adobe Flash Player

What they do not tell you (Adobe), is that when you go to install the latest version of Flash Player, it Does Not automatically delete the older version.

The new version will not install if an older version is present.

Download, Install, and use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstall Tool.

Restart your computer.

Then go back to the Adobe Flash Player download page, download and install the latest version.
Restart your computer once more.

(No, going into Add/Remove Programs doesn't net you anything)

This is the Adobe Flash Player Uninstall Tool download page,

Yep. Same as the latest version page.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Under the heading > Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller Tech Note

Takes you to this page,

Go down to Number 1.
Left-click on the blue > uninstall_flash_player.exe, and click right on it.

A small window will come up > Opening uninstall_flash_player.exe
Click on Save File

Another small window will come up.
Very quickly look at the heading at the Top of the window.
This is where the file will download to.
Write it down.

In the heading at the top it may have;
1) Desktop
2) My Documents {Documents for Vista}
3) Downloads

If there is Desktop in the heading the file will download to your desktop screen

My Documents? Click on Start > My Documents

Downloads? Click on Start > My Documents > Double-click on > Downloads

When you see the file name > uninstall_flash_player.exe, Double-click on it.

Follow the easy instructions.

After it has installed run the Uninstaller.
Once the Uninstaller has finished, restart your computer.

Now go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, and download the latest version.
At the top right of the page click on the white > f in the Red square.

After the latest version of Adobe Flash Player has installed, restart your computer.

I have windows 7. When i try to play Nancy Drew: Danger by design a box pops up requesting i insert disc 1. There is only one disc! It seems to work ok on windows xp. Ca you suggest anything to make it...

From the Nancy Drew web site:

Windows Vista/7 Support Installing older games (#1-13) with Windows Vista/7.
While our older games are not completely Windows Vista/7 compliant (notably games #1-13), there is a workaround which has been successful for most players. Please take the following steps to manually install.
If you had previously installed, uninstall the game and then delete all remaining game file folders from your computer, including emptying them out of your Recycle Bin. These files may be in one of the following locations:
C:\Nancy Drew\
C:\Program Files\Nancy Drew\
In your Documents folder: C:\Users\Username\Documents\
Once this is done, make sure you're logged on as an Administrator for your computer and manually install by taking the following steps:
1. Go to your "Documents" folder and create a new folder. Rename the folder with the title of the game.
2. Insert game Disk 1 in your disk drive and open "Computer" from the "Start" menu.
3. Double-click on your CD-Rom/DVD drive, look for a Setup or Setup Launcher Installshield file. Double-click this file to start the installation process.
4. When install asks what directory you want your game to install to, click "Browse".
5. Navigate to the game folder you created by selecting "C:" drive, then "Users" (or User name), then "Documents", then select the game folder.
6. Continue forward with the installation process, when asked if you want to install DirectX, check "No, I will install myself".
7. Upon completion, uncheck the "Play Now" box, click finish and exit setup.
For game titles #1-5, follow these three additional steps:
1. Right-click the game icon that is now on your desktop, select "Properties".
2. Under "Properties", click on the "Compatibility" tab.
3. Check the "Run in Compatibility Mode" box and then select "Windows 98/Me" from the drop-down menu.
You should now be able to open and play the game. If you installed an older version of DirectX with the game, please go to Microsoft's Download Center to download and install the latest version of DirectX for your version of Windows.

Acer e-mail and encrytion problems

OTHER computers can only open Office documents if they also have the same version of office or a HIGHER (newer) version (backward compatibilitiy)
Office 2007 doc can open ONLY with Office 2007.
Both computers must have Office 2007.

But if you have Office 2007 you can open any OLDER Office doc (Office 2003, Office XP, etc.)
If much older, (Office 95 or earlyier) there is a conversion program to open the older version with a newer version.
