Question about Philips DECT VOIP-321 cordless telephone

1 Answer

Incompatibility with ACER computers?

I have the philips VOIP321 for 2 years now and it was working really well with my old computer. Last month, I had to change the computer and bought an ACER and since can't get the philips phone to work. I downloaded the driver for Windows Vista but my computer just does not recognise the audio device. I have tried downloading others from Internet but the computer just won't recognise them. (and Windows does not recognise that there is a problem!).

The funny thing is that I tried to connect it to the children's computer (also an ACER) and it doesn't recognise it either! However, I friend tested the phone with his computer (not an ACER) and it works...
Does anyone know of an incompatibility for this phone with ACER computers??

    I have the same problem with my new Acer computer (M5461) with Vista Home Premium Operating System. However, I previously had an Acer computer (T300) with Windows XP and there was no problem. I tried Skype helpdesk, but they said it was a problem with firewalls. I followed their instructions but still the problem persists.

Hi, I have the same phone, I also have an ACER laptop and running vista home premium.

I needed to download the vista software package from telephonesonline (it costs for the download) but no problems after that it works great.

The only thing with this particular phone is that if you have a monthly account (skype pro) and you use your package as your regular phone you need to add every phone number you call to your contact list.

I haven't found a soloution to dial out from the phone using skype with out it being in the contacts list.

Can't logon to my acer laptop it says the following, the user profile service failed the logon user profile cannot be loaded


Shut down your computer. To do a hard shutdown hold the power button down until it turns off. You probably need it to go to last known good configuration. To to this 1. find the F8 key (keep finger on it(not pushed yet). 2. Turn Power button on and immediately start tapping F8 key. This will take you to a screen with many options; Last Known Good Configuration is one of them. It should start up. Hope this helps.

I've got a password on my laptop and have not been able to remember it now for months, I have an Acer Aspire 7730 which is approx 4 or 5 years old now can you please help.


Just re-install the software again and your are done with this issue. Use the recovery disc that came with the computer or use a new Operating System disc be sure it is Windows that originally came or compatible with your computer. Then you can start fresh without any password needed until you do another one, HINT: I use my last four digits of my social so that I will never forget my password ever.

My 2 month old laptop, Acer, battery died while plugged in charging. Now it will not charge or come come on at all


My mom has a Acer, although it is a few years old, and with her computer she had to keep it plugged in or the computer would die. It would not charge at all. She tried getting a new battery which only lasted a few months before she had the problem again, then she got a new power cord. She eventually found a section where she could recalibrate the battery which has helped although the battery will only last for a few hours.
If your computer won't even turn on then it sounds like you might need a new battery and/or powercord. Also, make sure the computer isn't really cold or hot (I know with my gateway that if the computer is cold or hot then it won't turn on at all, regardless of charge). I hope this helps a little. The only other thing that I can think of is if the laptop overheating and something happened with the motherboard or something of that sort, which in that case you are probably better off buying a new computer.

I am not sure if my Acer mini tower X1700-U3700A has the correct CMOS battery. Currently there is a cr3032 in it or maybe it's a 2032. The computer is booting, however twice in 4 months I've had to...


Why do you replace it? Is the date / hour wrong after a shutdown? 4 months? It should last 4 years or more... Something's really wrong with the board. check capacitors too.

How do i check battery


Special equipment is necessary to check the battery of a laptop computer. The equipment will test the charging ability as well as the performance of the battery under the standard "load" of operating the computer. If yours is no longer holding a charge, or the charge lasts only a short period, it's very likely that the battery is simply worn out. Typically expect that if a battery is more than 2 years old, you'll be running out of life for it. Some batteries last longer, some much shorter. For example, Toshiba's Tecra series batteries seem to wear out and drain their charge quickly after about 6-12 months, needing a new battery.

If the battery is less than a year old, the manufacturers warranty may stipulate free replacement.

The Acer Aspire 5100 has been out since 2006. If yours is an older model, it may simply be time to replace the battery. You may find a local computer repair shop that will test your battery for free since it's very simple for them to do.

Hope this helps, good luck!
