Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

2 Answers

My wife has just bought an Acer Aspiore One. We are in different countries and communicate via Skype. She has Windows XP on the Acer. She set everything up and downloaded Skype. Now, as soon as we try and connect, I can see her on the built in webcam but I cannot hear her. She can both see and hear me. We have tried everything: separate mic, calls to Skype, changing the audio settings in XP, nothing works. Can you please help?

Have her try to uninstall skype and reinstall it again. Sounds like a program issue. If that doesnt work uninstall it again and have her do a system restore.

How to download and install skype on my windows 7 desktop computer?


To install Skype, download the latest version from the Skype website. Do not download Skype from anywhere else.
The Skype install file is about 1MB in size. When you run the install file, the installer will download the Skype application (about 20MB) in the background. If your internet connection drops while this is happening, the installer will resume the download as soon as connectivity is restored.
If you do not wish to use the light installer, download the full installer (around 22MB).

The system requirements for running Skype on different operating systems are described below. Please ensure that your system meets these requirements, and that you have the equipment you need, before downloading the latest version of Skype.
Version : Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7
(32-bit and 64-bit versions supported)
Processor : At least 1GHz
RAM : At least 256 MB
Additional software DirectX v9.0 or above

Hope this helps (remember to rating this answer and leave us a testimonial commetn).

Hi richardhaley,
Isee that you are having issues with your Canon MP610 printer.
You mentioned that your printer is connected to an Apple Time capsule via USB and that it works fin on your Macbook and on your sons Vista Laptop but prints the colored shifted to the right on your daughter's Vista and wife's XP Laptop and this is connected via USB.
If I may ask have you tried printing wireless using your daughters Vista Laptop and you wife's XP Laptop to see if the colors are still gonna shifted to the right.
Also you mentioned the drive that the driver you are using is from bonjour but still you have the same problem.
Here is a link where you can download drivers specific for the versions of windows your daughter's Vista and your wife's XP would have, you will need to select exactly the OS operating system for the driver that you need also there is a software for each Operating system as well maybe you can download that as well for both system for you to be able to recalibrate the printer from the 2 machines.
I hope that this will help.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,
mvincentc

IM messages not going through


1) If you use Windows XP/Vista etc. firewall go to: Start > Settings > Security Center > Windows Firewall > Exceptions > Thick the "Skype" in the list, of if it isn't there click "Add Program..." > Select from the list or if it isn't there click "Browse..." > Navigate to the C:Program FilesSkypeSkype.exe (or something similar) > Ok
2) If you don't have Windows Firewall enabled, but use Antivirus/Internet Security Suite/Firewall software, go to this program, find the firewall settings and Skype to exceptions.
3) If your computer is on the work/school network, the network administrator has blocked access port to Skype - you should either ask your administrator or use Skype via this web interface: http://imo.im

I am trying set up a new skype for children but it seems i cannot open as follow the password.


when you are setting up a skype account, an email account is required in setting up a skype account. when you want to set up another skype account, you will need a different email address in setting up a different skype account. after seeting up this new skype account, if you prefer using both skype accounts on the same computer, on the skype window during singing in, you will have to uncheck the box that says SIGN ME IN WHEN SKYPE STARTS. imput your usernames and password and sign in. I hope this solution is useful.

  • Missing Windows system components.

New driver


I searched through BenQ site as they were previousily Acer Communications or something which made this and other scanners and it only has drivers that are supported up to Windows XP.

 

http://www.benq.us/support/downloads/downloads.cfm?product=159&page=downloads&dtype=D

 

That link will take you to the US driver download page for your scanner, change the country to whatever country you reside in. It may work with Vista if you run the driver update as a XP program with the compatibility wizard or when you install the scanner. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you may just have to go buy a scanner that will run with Vista or an all in one printer that is supported in Vista.
