Widows vista compatable

I have an Acer Aspire 5920g laptop running windows vista I work on a ship and to catch a WiFi signal from the shore I bought an external ariel usd dongle and software ZyDas ZD1211. But it has no drivers for Vista. The Laptop uses acer e management system for connecting to networks.
Also my Zen Creative Plus mp3 player uses creative software to transfer music and files. When I use the creative software it freezes and the only wy I can close it is through task manager.
Any help or thoughts would be usefull. Ths David

Make sure you have the latest version of the program and the latest updates for your OS (you could even try older versions of the software). Is the software compatible with vista? Try and run the program in safe mode... If it still don't work then maybe it just isn't compatible with your current system configuration (google the problem to see if others had the same issue). does it freeze other computers running vista? Ask yourself these types of questions to narrow down the possiblities and therefore finding the source of your problem. If you require additional assistance just come back and one of us will promptly answer your questions :)

"i am using acer aspire 4930,bought it from u.a.e.now staying in india,my problem is i cant install macromedia dreamweaver,my os is vista home premium.what should i do?"
solution: first of all this is not your problem, its the problem with the compatability of the software with vista. try to download dreamweaver which is compatable with vista.
My advise for you is: download vista compatable software for your computer and never cheat the person who have sacrifised his/her life for you. dont run away from risks in life leaving behind the one who shared with you. Never break the heart who loved you cause the pain is terrible than you think.

Find another computer with a USB port and Internet access.
Find a USB memory-stick.
Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://www.acer.com
and search under "support" for "Aspire" and "6390".
Download the device-driver for the wireless adapter to the memory-stick (or burn to a CD-R or CD-RW).
Move the memory-stick (or "burnt" disk) to your Acer computer, and install from there.
Voila! Internet access.

O.k its like this i have a recovery disk with windows xp and drivers for my acer aspire 3660. i.e all you have to do is restart the pc put the revovery disk in and it will install every thing , the drivers...


chances are, the drivers installed may not be the correct one that matches the components of your system. If you still have Windows 7, check Device Manager to see which device are not installed properly, then look for the correct Win 7 drivers for thos devices from Acer. If in case there are not Win 7 drivers for some devices, try to look for Win vista compatible drivers as they will usually work for Win 7 as well. Hope this helps and your rating/comment if this helps would be appreciated

Sir, i have purches acer aspire 4736z laptop in 14 apr 2009, with window vista already instelled, but it now says that enter vista product key, and shut down after 1 hour autometically


If you have bought the laptop from any authorised ACER vendors, ie if you purchase the laptop with genuine OEM OS software, the should be a sticker licence with serial No. on it attached with your laptop. If you only purchased the hardware then you have to go back ACER or their authorised dealers to buy it.
If your laptop has a genuine OEM OS, they should given you a recovery CD or the recovery CD is embedded on the hard drive and you can burn a copy from the hard drive to a CD/DVD.

Problem with Acer Aspire 4920 notebook


all laptops are supplied with a pre installed copy of windows and the product key will be on a genuine windows sticker on the back, unless you have no sticker, in which case you will need to purchase a copy, as nobody is likely to be able to help if you have no product key and no Vista disc

Vista infected trojan??


okay. trojan's is hard to remove and in most cases restore don't help.

you have a acer so you can use the erecovery tool.
open the program and select set system to default. that will format your harddisk and install the system as then you bought the pc.

so if you have some important doc ex. you must make a copy of them somewhere. if you have a D: drive on your pc you can use that as backup disk.

Hope that helps. in case not ask me.
