Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I'm not necessarily a noob, but as far as Windows 7 starter goes, it's been tough. I'm running an Acer Aspire 1 D257-13473 Netbook and I got in a rush with my media, and wasn't able to properly set defaults for pictures, audio and video files ( too many types to name). What I would like to do it is download A Media Player / manager, and or any tools to help me clean up the mess. Anyone know of any good programs to run on starter? Expert advice would be much appreciated. Thanks y'all.

SOURCE: I am having trouble accessing videos/pics. on my laptop

Since your question is not so clear, I have to assume myself that pictures and videos saved on your phone can't play on your computer after they are transferred to your computer. The message simply means that the codec installed on your system does not support the media type that you are playing. If you don't have any other player installed on your system you have to try with this one Vlc media Player (click here to download). Download it, and install, now open the downloaded files (video or pic or audio) using this player. Hopefully that should work. Alternatively you can use this player instead of Windows Media Player, but on the other hand, you can still play those files using Windows Media Player. The only thing you need is to install a codec, like Klite megacodec packs, Acemega codec packs, etc.. Click here to download Klite mega codec packs Download, Install and restart your computer, now you'll be able to play any type of media file using your windows media player and other players.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: downloading a windows media player to a MacBook

Stuffit is like Winzip for Mac.
Where are you downloading the media player from?
Do you have a copy of Stuffit it installed on your Mac so that you can decompress media player if that's the format you are downloading it in?

SOURCE: ACER Aspire 6530 - Windows Vista sound problem

I had the same problem, and it always seemed to be a resource issue. (CPU running near 100%). Somehow my Acer ePower Plan was set to "balanced" and when i looked at the settings for CPU speed when the computer was plugged in, it was set to LOW !!! So, I changed it high, rebooted and it now sounds great.

Acer aspire one aoa150-1283 up grade Win XP to windows 7


Win 7 will use more resources and make it slower. It is a nice netbook, but still a netbook. Plus you need to consider drivers for, LAN, sound, and video.

Is there any way i can connect a HP Deskjet 1600 printer to an acer aspire one netbook?


Assuming the HP printer has a cable with a USB plug on the end of it, then yes you can.
If you are connected to the internet, then Windows (XP or Vista or Windows 7, or whatever operating system you are using) will find the printer (once it is turned on and plugged into your laptop) and it will usually ask you for the printer driver which is on a CD ROM that came with your printer, or failing that it will ask if Windows can go onto the internet and search for the correct printer driver.
If the Acer netbook doesn't find a driver, go to the HP website and download the drivers for that specific printer (ie Deskjet 1600) ensuring you get the drivers for the specific operating system the netbook is using ie get the Vista driver from HP if that is what the netbook is using. Or, get the Windows 7 driver if that is the op system you are using.
Give it a whirl, its not a tough thing to do.
Good luck,
Steve
