First go to the DOS menu by clicking on Run the type cmd. At the DOS prompt type "regedit"...this is your register files you will see a file called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Sometimes, not always on every system, you can collapse that folder and there will be folders for each of your hotkeys...However be aware, these are your Register files, do not make any changes experimentally. If you do not see your hotkey folders then exit..hope this helps

    Buttons not working

    I think the buttons are called something like Quick Launch buttons. Go to the manufacturers site and see if there are drivers to download and install.

    Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Quick Launch drivers.

    My CineDash Media Console will not work anymore. The volume, stop, play, etc. does not work. Not with itunes anymore.

    This is the way to get it to work!
    Getting the CineDash Media Console and Launch Buttons working
    If you have problems with either the CineDash Media Console or Launch buttons then you will be happy to hear that the solution for fixing these is easy!
    The first thing that you will need to do is install the “Launch Manager” which can be downloaded off the Acer website. Go to and click the service support, then driver download. Go to your model. Download the Launch Manager here (hosted here) or go to the acer site and find it there. The filename should be “Kilimanjaro_v2.0.00_Vistax32×64_XPx32×” the version of Launch Manager under the Windows Vista operating system .This will get the Email, Web and Empowering Technology buttons working with their default settings. If you need to change what the buttons do, you can launch the application named “Launch Manager” in the start menu.
    Uninstall any previous version of Launch Manager
    The solution to my problem was to get the Launch Manager to run in compatibility mode for Windows Vista Service Pack 2.
    Unzip. Explore the new folder and right-click Setup.exe.
    To do this go to the Launch Manager Install directory (C:\Program Files\Launch Manager ), right-click on “setup.exe”, select the “troubleshoot compatibility” tab, check the “Troubleshoot program” check box and then click “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won’t install or run now”. Then select “Windows Vista Service Pack 2”. Then click “Start” program. Now everything should work properly! It will install. But don’t reboot yet!
    Now locate and explore the freshly installed folder in your program files directory – (probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager or C:\Program Files\Launch Manager depending on if you are running 64-bit or 32-bit)
    right-click on “LManager.exe”, select the “troubleshoot compatibility” tab, check the “Troubleshoot program” check box and then click “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won’t install or run now”. Then select “Windows Vista Service Pack 2”. Then click “Start” program. Now everything should work properly! It will install.
    Reboot and enjoy properly synced volume, and fully functioning buttons.

    I can't get into my e-mail on my desktop because I hit a wrong key and memorized it and I don't remember what the key was. I think it was a letter on my password

    You set up Quick Launch buttons?? If so, you can go to *Control Panel *Quick Launch buttons and there's a list of the quick launches you set up (you can change them from here, too). If not set up with Quick Launch, I would just go back to wherever it was you set up this key for email and reset it.

    How to turn on the wireless card for an acer 5720-4126?

    Look for the easy launch buttons and press the one with a big circle with a small dot, this is the wireless switch.

    The easy launch buttons is located at the top of the keyboard right below the power button. There are actually 4 of them below the power button, it's the second one from left.
