Acer 5050 freezes after being turned on. Mouse pad unresponsive

I attempted to log onto a secured network with the wi -fi to test a wi-fi antennae I installed. The screen scrambled. After restarting ,the screen froze. The mouse pad would not work. I reloaded the software. It worked for a day then stopped. It has Vista software. I am far from being a tech guy. Laptop is hardly used.

I can'tload Web pages but wifi is on. Am using windows 8. What can I do to solve the priblem


There is a difference between Wi-Fi being on and Wi-Fi being connected. In Settings you can turn on Wi-Fi. All this does is turn on the Wi-Fi radio receiver.

With the receiver turned on you should then be able to view a list of Wi-Fi routers. You will probably see a little lock towards the bottom of the virtual radio signal symbol. These locked Wi-Fi stations cannot be connected to unless you have the right password to log onto them. Most people these days have secured their Wi-Fi routers so unauthorized folks cannot use them.

If you are using your own home router or wireless hotspot from a telecom, you will still have to select it from the list of Wi-Fi routers shown and click connect. If you haven't already entered a password, you will have to enter one.

This can all be done from them Charms menu that slides out on the right. Click Settings and Wi-Fi available.

Don't know how to connect to my home wifi


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.

The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.
Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle; In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.
If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

If by "turned off" you mean with the switch, the wireless adapter itself is probably bad.The cheapest solution is to buy an external wireless adapter.
