The problem is not your hard drive, if you are using vista then there are compatbility issues with certain programmes, if yoou are using XP all you need to do is download the latest codecs, this also goes for vista, try not to use XP programmes with vista because you will run into problems

Are there any keyboard key to activate wireless on Acer Aspire 5600?


The wireless switch should be on the front, under the latch of the lid

If the keyboard has a wireless key, Acer usually uses the icon of a satellite.

I have and ACER aspire 5738G (1yr old now), everytime im playing games, the left portion, exactly below the power button is getting very hot after 30 mins, then my laptop will shutdown.


Games will cause more heat as they put your components under more stress. Make sure that you are not blocking any of the vents and also, check them for dust. Give them a vacuum if they are dusty. It sounds like there is not enough ventilation, which causes your computer to overheat and then to shut down.

My acer aspire 5738g keeps shutting down when i'm


Sorry you are having troule. It sounds as if it is getting hot and protecting itself. Games are very cpu intensive and this causes heat. The cheap fix is an under cooler. This is a cooler the laptop sits on. I have seen them at Best Buy for under $20

Acer aspire 5600 shut down


the only way you can upgrade the graphics on a laptop is to purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs in to the usb slot, its not an upgrade as such but it will allow you to play high res games on the laptop, there would have to be a memory upgrade to go with that also

Nvidia are doing some good laptop accelerators at the moment but they are expensive!!!

kind regards

it sounds like the video card cannot support or handle the pressure put on it by the game you are trying to play, if it is an OEM game have a look for the minium system requirements that the game will run on, you can also find this information on line, you will probably find out that the graphics card doesn't support the game, do this check with all games you try to play
another thing is to upgrade your memory because some laptops don't have a devoted graphics card thus they are relient on the system memory

good luck

Press the power button until your laptop shutsdown. Start it again in safe mode and try to restore it to an earlier state that you think was the date problem was not there yet.
