Acer Aspire 3620 wireless lan keeps shutting down my system.
My Acer Aspire wireless lan hardware keeps shutting down the system whenever i try to connect to the internet without notice. I have installed different versions of the driver over and over again but this never helped. When the system shuts down, the error report reads ''Hardware Malfunction, Contact your hardware Vendor''. I am frustrated with this problem, and i cannot think of what else to do. Please Please Please Please Please I really really need help.

This issue arise when there is conflict between drivers the best we can do is to open device manager click on Vien and then select show hidden deivces and disable every driver except your wireless adapter and see if it works.

what operating system you using? xp or vista? home? premium? basic? at any rate use this link to select your unit and use the operating system drop down menu to locate the software that is loaded on the computer. from there select the correct driver. Make sure you select the Lan Driver first. Load that. THen select either the atheros or broadcom driver. if you install both it will be fine. the machine will only install the correct one to the device. good luck! Ruben
right click on my computer & click properties>> go to hardware>> device manager>> click on network adepters>> select your ethernet card (lan card) right click on it. select the option uninstall >> a window will show that r u sure u want to delete this driver click yes over there. then on the top of the device manager window click on action >>select scan for hardware changes. in a just a few sec the system will reinstall the driver for ur lan card. it will start working fine. in case if it doesn't work u have to use the static ip in ur lan card. for that just go to control panel>> click on network connection>> right click on network adepter>> click properties >> select internet protocol version 4 TCP/IP then click on properties >> put the dot on use the following ip address then type the ip the ip address (like these 192.168.0.2 ) on ip address on subnet mask it will be 255.255.255.0 on default gateway it will be ur routers ip address (like 192.168.0.1) on dns use the routers ip address again then just hit ok there u go ur problem is solved.
go to acer's website and click on the support section. you will have to pick your country. you can then choose your model. once you choose your model, you can choose the drivers. their website is not really setup well for knowing what drivers you need. you can also use one of several driver software tools that will check your system and tell you what drivers are out of date and then download them for you.
