Question about Compaq Presario CQ60-220US PC Laptop

1 Answer

Moving documents from one folder to another

My old Acer Aspire 5610-4537 would allow me to create different folders in my documents section and within those folders I could right click on different files (word pad, microsoft office) and one of the options would be "move to folder". I used this option all the time. It is very usefull and important to me.
My new laptop, compaq cq60-224nr does not give me this option when I right click on files. The computer is useless to me without this option. Is there something I am missing? Do I need to change a setting?
Both have windows vista home premium 32 bit. Please advise.

You can buy a USB cable for 2.5 hard drives and 3.5 hard drives.

Plug the drives on the cable and connect the USB cable.
Now yo can drag and drop the files from the USB drive to your
local dive.

My orbicam doesn't come on how do i get to that info ? I don't even have an icon for it.

First we will create the new folder where the pictures will be moved to:
1. Click on the Start button.
2. Click on Computer
3. Double-click on the C drive
4. Double-click on Users
5. Double-click on your user name
6. Double-click on Desktop.
7. Once you are in the Desktop, right-click on a blank white area (not on an icon) then select Create > New Folder.
8. Call the folder "Picture Backup" or any other significant name. (Do not close the windows since we will need it later) in step 11
Now we will move the pictures from the old folder to the new one:
9. Click on the START button then click on Pictures
10. Click on one picture and then go to Edit > Select All. This will highlight all the files in this folder.
11. Right-click on one of the selected files then select Cut
12. Go back to the folder we created in step 7 and
13. Right-click and paste the contents we Cut from the Pictures folder.
Now, restart your computer and try the OrbiCam application again. This should allow your OrbiCam application to work again.

The acer orbicam sometimes encounters an error when there are photos in the photo folder.

Hello, Is there a tutorial on how to use this webcam on my aspire ACER Computer? I can make vids but can't save them anywhere or export them/upload them. Thanks

Usually when you snap or make a video with your web cam, a folder is created in your documents with web cam name, open your folder and you will find your pictures and videos. For example, if your web cam name is Cyber shot, you see Cyber shot folder in your documents

If you don't find it in your documents, check your Drive (C:) thoroughly, or desktop or all programs.

You can also use "start Search" to look for it.

Take care.

My acer 5220 has no sound driver

Acer 5220 has four NoteBook models - Aspire, Extensa, Ferrari, and the Travel Mate.

Assumming one of these is your model, below is the direct link to ACER Support - Downloads...

Create a folder on the C: drive named Drivers. Under the C:\Drivers\ folder create a sub-folder named Sound. When you download the sound driver - download it into C:\DRIVERS\SOUND.

* * You could follow the above process for all your driver downloads, such as Video. Once you have all the drivers downloaded within the C:\Drivers folder - Burn them all to CD or USB key for safe storage.

Okay once the download has completed, you will need to browse to the folder and unzip the driver download file. Then run the install/setup routine.

Hope this helps....

God Bless.......

Acer aspire 3610 with drive c(full) and drive d(empty)

Right click on My Documents and select Properties.
Select Move.
Navigate to your D: drive. Select the drive letter and then click "Make New Folder." Enter "My Documents" as the folder name and hit Enter and then OK. Windows will then ask you whether you want to move your documents. Click Yes.
All the space the My Documents folder was taking up on C: is now empty and you will notice no difference in the way you work. Anything that belongs in My Documents will now automatically go to My Documents on D:
Note: You may not want to do the next part if you need a lot of space for Pictures and Music.
To get even more space on C:, right click on My Computer and select Properties.
Click on the Advanced tab and then Settings in the Performance section.
In Performance Options click on the Advanced tab
In the Virtual Memory section click on Change
Select the D: drive and set it to be the same as the settings on C:
Now change the settings on C: to have a page file of 0
If you are someone who likes to keep old email on file, those files can also be moved.
