Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop will not connect to the internet anymore.

My son's laptop (extensa 4420) will not connect to the internet anymore, it used to connect wirelessly, but now it will not anymore since he reinstalled windows vista onto the laptop. i bought the laptop from best buy, but it didnt come with anything neeed to connect wirelessly, the guys said that it was already installed in the laptop. so how do i reinstall or get it to connect wirelessly again. i tried to also hook up the ethernet cable and set it up that way, but it does not work. i have verizion actiontec modem/router. any help would be great.

Are you using wifi connection, I mean wireless connection or you're hooking up to a LAN network or through a modem connection?  If all this connection wouldn't worked out anymore, try reinstalling your Operating System!

Acer Extensa 4420 overheating


The laptop must be dismantled to access the motherboard, buy a can of compressed air attach straw. Now remove fan and the heatsink, blow out all open ports and fins on the heatsink and fan, next! remove thermal grease from the processor and heatsink with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel, now! apply fresh thermal grease to the processor and heatsink, "small thin layer evenly spread" now assemble, "solves most heat related issues"

If this is happening when you are viewing the videos from an internet site then the problem isn't with your laptop, it's with the internet connection - too slow.
Either get closer to the wireless router (or use a LAN connection instead of wireless) or get a speed upgrade from your ISP.

Acer Extensa 4420 suddenly won't boot. Don't have recoery disks. Can I download them from internet, burn to disks on another computer, and then use them on the Acer?


Modern PCs and laptops have the operating system tucked away on a hidden part of the hard drive. You will have to read the manual or - better - get the manufacturers on the phone to find out how to recover or reinstall the system.

How do I enable bluetooth in my Acer Extensa 4420-5963


Actually Acer use the same laptop case for some of their models, so the acer 4420 doesn´t have built-in bluetooth, you won´t find any driver for the bluetooth cause that reason. I have an extensa 4420-5910, have a bluetooth switch in the case but no bluetooth, if you check at Acer´s web page it say thet some models doesn´t have built-in bluetooth but the switch is in the laptop case... On the other hand, if you install an external bluetooth device, the case switch will be usefull to turn it on and off.
