Hello,

Double check that the wireless is switched on.. there is a slide switch at the front of the laptop next to the power lights, if it's on you should see an orange light on the front. As for the speakers, try holding Fn and the up arrow, this turns up the volume. Also check it's not muted, Press Fn F8 if you want to try this.

I hope this helps

Have wireless router. need adapter for old hard wired computer speakers


You can't use a wireless adapter like one you connect to a laptop or PC. Simple reason is that your speakers don't have an Operating System that can translate the wireless signal.

The easiest way (and I don't know what you call "reasonable priced") is to use Airport Express from Apple. A nice how-to can be found here. You can get them used for about 50$.

Another option is to use Sony HomeShare Wi-Fi Network Speakers - they cost about the same. Example here and a little how-to here.

Hope this helps - let me know if you have any questions.

I have lost my lead to my acer laptop aspire5100 series model number BL51 19v .474Acan you help.I am a mature age person thanking you Pat


There are two solutions to this problem, Pat.

One is to buy the correct AC adapter (Charger) for the laptop.
Two is to buy an aftermarket AC adapter that will work for your laptop, but will also work for many other laptops.

1) http://www.usbphoneworld.com/acer-adapter-19342-65w-lc-adt01-aspire-5520-ac-acer-aspire-5100-ac-adapter.html?CAWELAID=950033775

The above is from a quick search. Your search may be better. Just put Acer Aspire 5100 charger, in your search box.

2) From another quick search,

http://www.atbatt.com/laptop-chargers/b/acer/m/aspire-5100.asp?utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_keyword=Acer+Aspire+5100+Charger&utm_content=NAC-X90-22&utm_campaign=google0&gclid=CLeDr7qIlqsCFQ9S7Aodvn_TXA

Would also like to commend you for your intelligence.
Stating the Voltage, 19V, and the Amperage, 4.74A ,is a really intelligent thing to do.

(The charger MUST have 19 Volts for the Voltage. The Amperage (Amp's, or A), can be more)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Cant get the 5100 to connect to the internet.


Can you be more specific please ? i.e, is it the first time you have tried (new laptop) or has this problem just started (new wireless software added recently??) .. I do remember an old problem on acer's a couple of years back they had a power saving option on the wireless adapter that would turn itself to maximum by default. You could try this as a possible quick fix or give me some more info and I will try to help: right click my computer / properties / hardware tab / device manager… then find your wireless adapter in the list under Network Adapters, right click / properties / advanced tab. Select Power Save Mode from the list on the left and select Off from the drop down on the right. Press OK and close device manager.
Let me know how you get on, but with more info I might be able to help

Does the Aspire 5100 have bluethooth


Hi,

This do not have Inbuilt Bluetooth Function. This Model only have Bluetooth Module. If you wish, you could Purchase a Bluetooth Kit and have that Function installed :-

http://www.notebooksolutions.ca/zc/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=2037&zenid=3d219fb2254791e6177a79a33c4ce4ea

Most of the Acer Models do not have Inbuilt Bluetooth. Usually i would say, use Bluetooth Toggle, rather than Purchasing a kit. A Bluetooth toggle is just like a Pen Drive.You need to install the CD and load the software. Once Loaded, insert the Toggle in the USB of the Computer and synchronize it with other device.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My wireless is gone, and does not show up in device manager


If your wireless adapter is not appearing in Device manager open the cover on the bottom of the lap top and make sure the wireless card is properly connected, next look for an external switch that might have been accidentally turned off. If everything is good then you may want to try a new wireless card for the PCMCIA Slot.
