Acer aspire 4520

This problem only occur when i play DOTA online or lan, not in a single player mode and not in any other game. Blue scree with white writing appear before the computer restart. As it is too fast i cant read everything but it mention something about dump physical memory. My friend who used to have this says that it might be due to my graphic card driver. Please help me out on this.

Yes your friend may well be correct, if you have a crash while playing a game it's either a overheating problem, so check the ventillation or it's a graphics driver fault, check incase windows has installed a generic driver in the last windows update, as it may not be right for your system and require the correct driver updating and installing. The memory dump screen is normally called the BSOD, blue screen of death, normally associated with corrupt drivers.

Re: Acer aspire 4520

It's really common for the Acer Aspire 5100 to "blue screen" with a message about problems with new hardware suggesting fixed disk because of a motherboard issue relating to overheating.
Even if you've solved a previous overheating issue by clearing the exit vent of fluff, the motherboard is still susceptible to hot spots that cause the blue screen.
Replacement of motherboard is only solution in my experience. If you replace the motherboard remember to keep the fan exit vent clear to prevent future overheating.

Wireless lan not working on my acer aspire 4520

The wireless feature (Wireless LAN) on an Acer notebook allows you to connect to available networks. This convenience allows you to use the Internet with network cables, modems or network installation. Acer laptops come with a wireless switch to turn the wireless feature on or off. Once you enable the wireless feature, your Acer notebook can connect to wireless networks within range.

1.Locate the Wireless LAN switch located on the front of your Acer Notebook. Move the switch to the right to turn on Wireless connections.

2.Right-click the network icon located on the system tray next to the clock. You should see a list of available wireless networks.

3.Select the network you want to connect to and click "Connect."

If you've ever used Windows 7 or xp, chances are you've experienced the lovely shade of blue associated with the famous Windows Stop Error or 'Blue Screen of Death.' This frequent, although less so in newer operating systems, error occurs whenever Windows senses a software, hardware or driver error which will not allow it to continue operating properly. In other words, it happens all the time, for all sorts of reasons.
You will download the cc-cleaner from

And will clean registry. After clean you should uninstall all the driver and install the driver again in shibuda_14.jpgsave mode .

I need to find a driver for the cd dvd drive on my acer aspire 5520-5865

There's no need for a "driver" -- Windows should _directly_ support it, to let you read CD and DVD media.

However, if you want to "play" a DVD movie, you'll need to have software (either supplied by ACER or purchased online, such as PowerDVD) to play the movie.
