    i havent loaded anything onto the laptop and also I have tried restarting and pressing F8 but this isnt doing anything, the only thing I can do when I first switch it back on is press F2 to get onto setup utility or F12 to get onto boot option menu, it give me 2 options but everytime I press enter to choose on of these it goes back to the black screen with white pointer.

You need to restart the system again and press the F8 key, this should allow your to boot to the last know working configuration. Then you can put in the correct code. Please rate response.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Relax.. check all your drivers in device manager:

Vista- type device manager at startup
XP- right-click my computer -> hardware -> device manager

Make sure all the drivers is ok with no question marks or errors, if it does, reinstall your drivers from your driver CD.

Cannot find wireless icon or connect to the internet


First off, make sure that you haven't accidentally toggled off your wireless card. On the Aspire One there should be a small toggle WiFi button along the bottom right edge of the base. make sure that the WiFi button is lit, if not, try pressing the button to toggle it on again.
