Sound problem Hi to keep it short, I reloaded windows after I thought I had a virus and my computer wouldnt start. Since then I have had sound but only can adjust it using the screen icons, the buttons on the actual laptop no longer work. I have now installed windows vista for other issues and still cant control sound on laptop. I have downloaded all the possible drivers i can see on the acer website but dont know what else to do. My laptop is Aspire 5670. Thanks for your help.x

    I have the acer laptop Aspire 5670. I recently had to reinstall the windows vista cd thing. After I did this, I no longer had any sound of any kind. I have been all through the control panel regarding sounds and anything else remotely related to this problem. Everything says it is all working fine. When I try to adjust the volume, the bars go up and down accordingly, but still no sound. Nothing is set to mute. I have 6 separate buttons on the left hand side of my laptop. These are vol+, vol-,play/pause, stop, skip left and skp right. Before, if I pressed either of the volumebuttons, green bars would appear at the bottom of my screen to tell me the volume was increasing or decreasing or muted. Now, when I press these buttons, no green bars appear, but, like I mentioned before, when I have the sound settings from the control panel in view, the bars go up or down, giving me the idea the sound is working. I assume it must be a problem with the actual speakers, although, again, in the control panel, it tells me everything is working fine.

    If you have changed operating systems then that may complicate things. In the control panel you will see icon for keybopard, or interface device. Open it up and see if you have options to turn on or reset anything.

Hi tanuj
Sounds like you have a virus, worm or a Trojan in your computer.
To remove a virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer...do it the EASY way...let someone else do it for you.
Start your computer, as the computer is starting keep tapping the F8 Key.
This will start the computer in the Safe Mode.
Once in the safe mode go to the following webpage below and download, install, and run Microsoft Safety Scanner for FREE.
Once you run the Microsoft Safety Scanner (it may take quite a while depending on the size of your hard drive) it will remove all the virus's,trojans,worms,etc it finds, if it does not completely remove them all you will be given a chance to chat with a Microsoft Professional thru a pop open window and he will take control of your computer (with your permission) and finish removing all the rest of the virus's, trojans, or worms that are on your computer for FREE!! Can't beat FREE!!

Computer freezes up; too slow. Previously


Make sure you rerun the antivirus software again. Then you will need to do a complete disk cleanup and disk defragment.

As a last resort you can reload windows. There is an option to load new copy or not choose not and you can keep all your files in place.

I have some weird problem. As soon as I connect either LAN or wireless, 5-10 cmd windows open up and close very rapidly within seconds. This just keeps on going and doesn't allow me to do anything. This...


Sorry for the earlier post:

Well, this sounds a lot like a virus... Usually, viruses ten to wake up when the computer is connected to the internet. The first most basic thing to do is to disconnect the computer from the internet and start scanning viruses. I can guarantee that you will probably find small viruses, but nothing major. Most chances is that you will have to format and install the computer, so I would urge you to save all important information. You can try to insert the original windows CD, if you have it. Insert the disk as soon as you restart and then boot from the disk. The windows installation will ask you if you want to repair the windows installation, and you can choose this option. However, it is most recommended that with such aggressive viruses, as you have, to format the whole computer and install the windows

Toshiba satellite l30/l35 series wont start up keeps turning off and running start up over and over


Your laptop is looping. You will need the boot CD given to you by your manufacturer or you may need to purchase one from your local Best Buy or other local computer store. After the initial scree displaying your manufacturer is displayed and the CD is in the drive, the computer will ask if you want to boot from CD, you select yes, and you shoudl be able to log in fine. If that does not occur, it is possible that you may have a computer virus. If you do have a virus, you may need to reload your OS from the CD. You will loose all data if you are not practicing proper backup practises.

Our Acer laptop we think crashed because it will not load and keeps restarting before it will show the login screen. How do we fix it?


I recommend Norton Anti-Virus. If that does nto detect and remove the problem then reload windows. There was a virus that caused this problem on Windows machines but there is also a situation that windows gets stuck in after doing updates on occassion. If it is the later the only solution I know that works is to reload windows or hold teh F8 key while you turn the computer on and select restore to a previous date that you know it was working.

After using my ibm computer for about hours;when i drag the mouse it forms some sort of scratch like marks and when i restart the computer it would work better for few minutes


Sounds like something is eating up your RAM in the computer, possibly a virus or maybe just a bunch of programs running in the background. Run a virus scan at housecall.trendmicro dot com and if nothing is detected you will have to run through your startup programs using msconfig from the start > run menu. On IBM laptops the video card memory is shared with the main computer memory and if it is clogged up you will notice stuff like this, symptoms sometimes can be not being able to see your icons on your desktop as well. It sounds like this computer could use a full reload of windows and starting anew. No matter how well you try to maintain your computer it gets congested over time with unused dll files and registry entries. I would recommend you backup your files after getting a clean virus scan and re-install windows. This should be done every 6-12 months to keep your computer in the best shape possible.

The computer does not complete the boot up cycle


one of my clients had a dv9000 the wifi started acting weird where it would not show up under connection manager but then would come back and work fine other times. Eventually it stopped booting. Had to have HP replace motherboard, in our case it was not under warranty and they replaced it anyways. Hope they do the same for you.

Freezing and restarting


This is generally a hardware issue. However, it could very well be that a virus has corrupted the system, and is causeing the hardware issue. Start by checking the memory. A bad memory chip is the most common cause for a problem of this nature.
