Acer Extensa 5420-5038 Laptop I have access to the CMOS (via master password) but i cannot get access to the Hard Disk (also password protected) Any suggestions?


The hard disk passwords can be removed only by the manufacturer, at great cost - over $500 per disk. Unless you have really critical files that you cannot lose you should just replace the hard disk and reinstall.

My wireless network adapter is gone? My wireless modem can not connect to my ACER because I do not have a wireless network adapter.


I may not understand you on this because the 5420-5687 notebook should have come with a wireless connection.

Does your "Modem" have both wireless and a hard wired LAN " For instance my "Modem" came only with a hard wire LAN" and no wireless transmitter. I needed to buy a "Wireless Router" to tramsit between the "Modem" and then wireless on my ACER 5420-5687.

If the "Modem" had both the hard wired Lan and a Wireless transmitter it should be able to go directly without the "Wireless Router". If that is true you should see the amber flashing light, on the last in the group of 4 below your touchpad. If it is not flashing as I said above, it is either not sending/receiving or likely not turned on. The on/off switch is alternately turned on/off by sliding the switch below the light to the right.

Hope it helps. I tend to get a little too wordy.

McAfee has controls that can lock you out of the internet. Are you trying to connect via wi-fi or ethernet cable? If it is wi-fi, try disabling McAfee, connect to your wi-fi then turn it back on. You'll need to make an exception for that connection. If wired, disable McAfee, make an exception for port 80, 8080, 23.

Can't determine wi-fi manufacture..on Acer Extensa 5420g..


802.11bg is the only wireless driver available. There aren't any other kinds of driver for a wireless card. You must be looking in the wrong place. Just do a google with the brand name of your wireless card and you will find the driver.
