Not sure if this is exactly what you're asking, but my orange light was off and wouldn't come on. Wireless had somehow gotten disconnected. The "repair" said that the switch or FN key needed turned back on. But it didn't tell me how.
What I finally did was go into the Device Manager and uncheck the box that says something like "turn off to save power". I think my battery got too low, so it turned off my WiFi. But nothing on the computer's help told me how to turn it back on.
I haven't tested this out, but hopefully problem solved.
I had to do a Restore to get my orange light / wireless back on.... So we'll see if all is well after unchecking the box.

Good luck.

What is the button with the circle with a line on top and dot on bottom and flashes red mean


There are four Easy Launch buttons above the Keyboard.

First one has a symbol of a circle with a line in the top, and a dot at the bottom.

This is the Wireless communication button, and also is an indicator light.

It enables, or disables the wireless function.
Red light indicates there is no Wireless communication on.

How do i turn on the wireless card to my acer aspire 6930-6760


The media control buttons give access to volume control, skip, pause/play, and stop. The buttons are capacitive, and glow blue when the laptop is on. To the right of the media control buttons are four buttons that perform programmable actions. By default, they function as wireless on/off, launch Internet, launch Bluetooth manager, and launch Acer Arcade. Also, in the top right corner is a button which turns virtual surround sound on or off.

CineDashMediaConsole.volume not working.


Cinedash FIX for Windows 7
This works to fix the CineDash Media Console!
I had the same problem with my Aspire 8920G
Now it works fine.
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 http://www.acer.com and click the service support, then driver download. Go to your model. Download the Launch Manager on the acer site. The filename should be “Kilimanjaro_v2.0.00_Vistax32×64_XPx32×64.zip” 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 m nt able to locate my wifi switch on my laptop acer aspire4720z. plz help


Hello,

Your wi-fi switch is located to the top most buttons on your laptop which is the "easy-launch buttons". The first one is WLAN(your wi-fi), second is INTERNET, third EMAIL, fourth BLUETOOTH, and fifth ARCADE.

You may need to setup your wi-fi by pressing the Empowering Key (triangle button inscribed with letter "e").

Hope this helps.
