Question about Acer Aspire 5670 Notebook
I am currently having issues with my Wireless 802.11 a/b/g device on my Aspire 5670.
I usually leave my laptop on with internet connectivity. On Wednesday evening, I went to shut the computer off but I got an error stating: Unable to disable the Wireless Adapter.
I had been having a few issues with connecting to the internet and playing on-line games since Monday, but the device reported being enabled and in working order.
I finally had to reset the computer to get it to shut off. When it restarted, the Windows Bluescreen prompt came up stating "Windows wasn't shut down correctly and needed to check the system: Press any key to skip" - when I went to push a key, I found my keyboard was disabled and I couldn't skip the check even if I wanted to.
When Windows did finally load, it took 10 minutes to get from the log on screen to a functional desktop, but I found my wireless adapter was disabled. I couldn't get it to come on and any of my mouse commands took 2-3 minutes to process.
I then restarted my computer in Windows Safe Mode with networking. This start-up took the usual amount of time, but I found again my wireless adapter was still disabled and I could not get it to come back on via system network control or by pushing the button on the front of the computer.
Everytime I have restarted my computer not through safe mode, Windows always states it needs to run system check and my keyboard is disabled, not allowing me to skip the process. It always finds a different file being "too big" and says it's fixed, but as soon as the log in screen comes up, it takes at least 10 min to load and then is not fully functional.
I did finally get my wireless adapter to come on, but I had to go through networking advanced settings and actually turn it on, and then push the button to get the adapter to activate - BUT Windows and the System Hardware Device Manager has said the adapter was working the entire time.
So . . . Basically my laptop is not able to be utilized unless I'm running under safe mode and that kind of defeats the purpose of using a blazing fast laptop (which has been perfect up to this point) for gaming and applications when it now runs like a car on four flat tires.
Lots of choices...
if you have os disk boot off it and select repair which will take you to the dos prompt..(c://)
here type chkdsk and enter this will check and fix any errors.
other choice....when you start pc and get to login window select logout,wait for next page (a few seconds) and select login and it should load a lot quicker if this sorts it let me know and I'll tell you why this is and what to do unless your happy doing that each time.
once windows and drivers all loaded open control panel,select administrative tools select services and scroll to wireless zero config and press start.this will solve 2 issues.first it will get u connected 2nd it will verify that your wifi manager (software addon with drivers)is incompatable or not installed correctly or has conflicts either way youll need to uninstall it and reinstall or leave pc set for windows config
