Question about Acer Aspire 5920-6727 Notebook

Default message when logging on

I have a new computer with windows vista and after logging on, a blackbox comes up that says c:windows/setspk/default.exe. When I went to windows files I find that setspk is there (associated with Realtek) as an application. I have done a recovery and it still turns up. It disappears after blinking on, and it doesn't seem to bother anything, but I don't think it should be doing this. Am I correct. Hi

i am facing the same problem in acer laptop 5920 with vista premium,

i unchecked the option Realtek..... and restarted the laptop, but still the problem persists

please let me know if there is any option to solve this problem

You can try to update the driver for realtek from acers website go to http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html select your model of laptop and download the drivers for realtek. Then go to Control panel, system, device manager and right click realtek, click on update driver and browse to where you saved the download and select the file.

Hopefully this will work

    this is probably just a start up program tha checks the drivers for realtek before it runs. You can disable start up programs from running (you need to be logged on with administration rights). Go to control panel>windows defender>tools>software explorer and click on the botton tab 'show for all users' (even if there is only one user it will enable to to disable if you click on show for all users) then search for any software relating to realtek. for example the realtek control panel. Then click on it and select 'disable'. This will prevent it from running when the computer starts up. If this does not work or you have disabled more than one thing you can always go back and permit to run again so don't worry.



    If the box still displays when you log on don't worry, these programs normally work without you seeing them, but because you see the box blink does not mean there is anything wrong.



    I hope this helps

This is normal, this is a driver loading for your realtek card. Sound I believe. I think what's happening is that it's not being done in the background as it normally would on perhaps an XP system. Also remember that vendor drivers and programs don't always work perfectly with Windows. 
It's nothing to worry about, if your sound is good, then it's doing what it should.
I hope that gives you some ease of mind.
Caid.

Bypass Windows Vista password


One of the cornerstones of Windows Vista is security. Vista comes with User Account Control (UAC) system, firewall protection against malware, spyware, phishing filter, automatic updates, and, of course, that the procedure for logging into your account and password. All this is a great security and gives you peace of mind knowing that your system is protected, surfing the Internet.
However, if you're the only one who ever used the Windows Vista system in your home? Have you ever wanted to do it so that you to bypass the logon Windows Vista, and get right to work? There is a way that this task with a hidden tool called the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel to run.
In this release, Windows Vista Report, I'll show you how to circumvent the access and use of additional user accounts in Control Panel, Windows Vista logon procedure and essentially configure Vista to automatically log on when you turn on the system.
Accessing the hidden tool To access the hidden Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, click the Start button, type “Control Userpasswords2′ in the Start Search box, as shown in Figure A, and press [Enter]. When you do, you’ll encounter a UAC dialog box and will need to respond accordingly.
Figure A 1_thumb.png To access the hidden Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, you’ll type Control Userpasswords2 in the Start Search box. In a moment, you’ll see the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, as shown in Figure B. (As you can see, the dialog box is simply titled User Accounts.)
Figure B 2_thumb.png The dialog box for the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel is simply titled User Accounts. Configuring the automatic log on To configure the automatic log on, select your user name in the Users For This Computer list, if it isn’t already selected. Then clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box. When you do so, your Advanced User Accounts Control Panel will look like the one in Figure C. To continue, click OK.
Figure C 3_thumb.png Once you clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box, the Users For This Computer list becomes unavailable. As the last step in configuring the automatic log on, you’ll see the Automatically Log On dialog box, shown in Figure D, and will need to type your password in both the Password and Confirm Password text boxes. To complete the operation, click OK.
Figure D 4_thumb.png You’ll be prompted to type your password in the Automatically Log On dialog box. To test your Automatic log on, simply restart your computer. When you do, Windows Vista should automatically log you on.
What’s your take? Now that you know how to access the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel and enable the automatic log on feature, will you do so? Please drop by the Discussion Area and let us in on your thoughts.
Finally Solution
I usually used the cheapest and easy to use tools, especitally free trial: like Windows Password Recovery tool 3.0 to reset Windows Vista password.

Fujitsu siemens an unexpected I/O error has occured


Hello olamideidowu,

Here is a way to find out what the message means. Look for entries in the system event log that happened on the same day your error message happened.

*Using the Event Viewer:

•Click the Start button on lower left corner of the screen

•Select 'Run' (on Windows XP) or Type 'Run' and press the Enter key (on Windows Vista)

•Type 'Eventvwr' (in the 'Run' box) and click OK.

•(On Windows Vista) open the Windows Logs folder in the left pane

•Select the 'System' log in the left pane

•Look at the system events that happened on the same day as the I/O error. One (or more) of those events should contain the 'unexpected I/O error' message.

•Get the Event ID and look up what it means on the Microsoft Events and Errors Message Center: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/support/ee/ee_advanced.aspx

Also, the 'Message Level' of the event shows as Information, Warning, Error or Critical. Looking at the message level can help determine how serious the event may be. Events that have Error or Critical message levels can indicate a problem on the system.
