Question about Acer PC Laptops

3 week old Acer Aspie 4730 will not work

Hi! I know nothing much about computers and I am really having troubles here. My new Acer 4730z laptop screen would not display when I turned it on today. After 3 attempts I took it back to Office Depot where I just purchased it( the second week of Jan.) only to have them point out a 15 day return policy!!!!!!!! I have called tech support and they had me to keep hitting the F8 key until the screen came back up. Of course it went back out again. I called them back again and they had me reinstall drivers and said that when Windows Vista updated that it often caused this problem. Well, it won't work once again. Can anyone offer any kind help? I am really feeling like I've been taken at this point. Thanks, S.

    Are you connecting the laptop to any external display maybe a projector or external monitor ?

    and once you do the F8 toggle how does it go back to a blank screen, is it on boot up or does it just go blank while your using the cpu ?

Your not holding the function key down, its the bottom left key on keyboard (Fn). hold it down and then press f8. you will see the screen go off and on.

Webcam drivers?


Below you'll find three links. The first one is the Bison camera driver download. The second is for the Suyin camera driver download. The third is for therapy and anger management if the first two don't help:->

Just kidding the third is to the downloads support for Acer.

Check your device manager or manual to find out which camera you have in your 4730.
Please let me know if you need any help with the installation.
Hope this helps.

Drivers for the windows vista


this depends on your components, what brand is your motherboard for example?, if it is Gigabyte, then go to www.gigabyte.com, may i suggest a program?

Everest Free will let you look at your computers components down to the name of what you need to look for, if you need something more in-depth, may i suggest Everest Ultimate?

example of a component name: NetExtreme 8100 - Ethernet Controller

hope this helps
