There are multiple ways.
1.) Click "start" and hit "shutdown" and then "reboot" 2.) Hold the power button (button that turns computer on and off) untill it shuts the power down then just push button to turn back on  3.) Unplug the computer then remove battery then replace battery and hit power button 4.) Crash the computer. Right click the task bar and hit task manager, the click the processes tab and find lsass, its a system process, and hit end task.  the computer will sense it is not running and force a reboot. 5.) hold down windows key (has windows flag) and hit r.  Then type "shutdown -r" but without the quotes.

    You need to get a operating system like windows or linux and insert the cd into the drive then reboot.  
    When it asks you to boot to cd, hit any key.  Then just follow the instreuctions.  

    If you have the factory istall cd you could use it and follow the instructions. 

    That or just reboot the computer and see if it says anything like recovery console press f10. If it does press it and then follow instructions from there.

Start: the little arrow near the bottom right corner: restart.

Or, Start: Run: Shutdown /r

Or Control-Alt-Delete, Task Manager, File: New Task: Run: shutdown /r

    To get it like when you first bought, find your Acer system restore DVDs that came with the computer. If you lost 'em ... Acer sent me a set for I think $5 or $10.

    This will wipe out -all- your programs, all your music, all your word processing documents, all your updates to Windows. Back up everything you might possibly want to use first.

Just to clarify but a general reboot can be done by clicking on start>shutdown>and restart

If you can not not access that just hold the power down and the pc will power off and then press it again and it will restart. This is if the pc is completely 'locked' up and you are able to do anything. This is the same for ALL windows based computers and the pwer button shutdown is the same for all pc's

Usually holding down the power button for a long time will force a reboot. I am not sure if that is what your asking

    if you are just trying to shut down your computer you do need to restore it. You should be able to shut it down by holding the power button or by following these are comments that are posted. If it is a diiferent problem restoring is always an option.

Hello, I have the same problem as you. The answer is faulty Motherboard. If you have recently bought this, return it, else you must find a replacement board.

Want to install a bluetooth driver,it displays no bluetooth device found


Based on the comments of one of the user/owner of same laptop model as yours, to quote: " I got this laptop for my school work and it turned out to be able to do so much more. It's perfect size and the battery, compared to other Acer products, last for 3+ hours. It's got more USB ports than my desktop computer. It includes other features like a built in SD card reader,BLUETOOTH, an IR reciever, a built in mike, and much more. So far it has never locked up on me, I guess thats comming from the 1GB of RAM. It easly runs the new versions of Office and Adobe, and is great for the office ot the light gamer."

So based on the above, Bluetooth already exist in your laptop as its driver might be included in the motherboard software, which you don't need to install a new driver, all you have to do is to check if its Enabled & status is in Working Condition thru the Device Manager settings. best regards

Acer extensa 4220 wireless problem


I'm not sure if you tried hitting the appropriate key on your keyboard to initialize your wireless network. Check your manual to see which key it is, it is not automatic. Also, make sure you have a wireless card. Click on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system it will give you a list of all your hardware, Look for 802.11b/g that is the wirless.

Don't forget to rate this solution.

Acer 4220 has a bluetooth button but does it need a bluetooth adaptor? Hard to determine.


If it has got a bluetooth button then it does not need any bluetooth adapter.it has got a internal bluetooth adapter.You just need to press that button in order to enable bluetooth on your laptop.

I have acer extensa 4220 laptop when i plug in head phones in the laptop the sound still keeps on coming from the built in speakers and not the head phones


khalid276,

I had this problem also on my acer aspire 5520. This laptop has 2 3.5mm jacks. It was a bit embarrassing, but I had the headphones plugged into the input jack. Make sure that you have the head phones jack plugged into the correct jack.

I hope this helps!
