I own an acer aspire 5332 laptop, an don't know how to connect it to my hdmi television? what lead do i use? as a normal both ended hdmi lead won't work?? can you help me pleas, or to go somew


If your model does not have an HDMI out connector (the maual indicates not all models do have this, you can purchase an HDMI card for your PCI express slot and add the functionality to your laptop.
There are also plenty of USB to HDMI converters that can turn your USB port into an HDMI port.
Hope this helps

Unable to detect any wifi when I know my wifi network is on, working, running, just fine! The other laptop in this has is getting wifi perfectly, so is my Android phone.. I tried downloading the wifi...


If it is three days old and no wifi you may not want to read this...;-]

There is a off on switch for the wifi either in front or along the side of the case. By default it is off. The wifi will show installed and working but won;t do anything. The hard part is finding that stupid switch. Followed by pretending you knew it was the problem all along. I'm chuckling at this as everyone myself included has done this. If it is anything other than the switch on a 3 day old laptop I'd put in in the box and return it.

it's the switch ;-]

the special key to turn the wireless on is Fn + F3. use this special key to turn the wireless on. if in case the wireless switch pops up on your screen but cannot turn it on, the problem is with the driver. you need to reinstall the wireless driver of your computer.

I can't get my wireless to work on my laptop - I honestly cannot even remember when or how it stopped working. I get a message when I try to connect: The network adapter "Intel (R) WiFi Link...


Very first thing to try is check to see if the wireless is turned on!
There may be a small switch on the case that must be turned on. But this doesn't sound like your problem--just thought I'd mention it.
Then go into the device manager and remove the adapter. Don't worry--this won't hurt anything.
Restart the computer and let it find the adapter. It should work after that.
Other than that, I'd have to know the actual settings on the adapter to help you.

Hello , i can't connect my laptop on wireless network , i don't know where from .. please help me :D


1) Check if the laptop has a mechanical switch to disable wireless, look for the logo for wireless by a switch on the laptop (it's a dot with curved lines above it), turn it on

2) If there is a switch, and it was off, when turning it on, windows will likely pop up about wireless networks detected, if not, go into control panel, look for the networking category, click this, there should be a link for wireless networking in there.
