To start try upgrading Internet explorer to the latest release from: Internet Explorer 8: Home page.


Ensure that you have the latest Flash installed and reinstall flash player. See:

If that still does not fix the problem try downloading Firefox and using Firefox instead of Internet explorer.

Download Firefox Browser Free

If still no luck you may need to reinstall the system.


Also ensure that the Acer has at least one GB, if not two or more, otherwise the computer may be freezing for lack of resources. Check your band usage and monitor system resources to find out. when the poblem occurrs.


Regards.

I have an Acer 5542 laptop. Whenever I watch live streaming video, or YouTube, the video stops every few seconds for buffering to catch up. This is a fast Windows 7 computer with plenty of ram, clean...


The answer to this issue is your cpu, its a turion amd, basically it doesnt have the raw processing power required to render streams. there is no solution to this, other than replacing the laptop. AMD Turion II Ultra mobile processor M600 / 2.4 GHz just doesnt cut it, its not always about the clock speed, but how the unit processes data.

MThis may sound like a silly question - but do you have to have an internet service to uise this notebook?


Hi cimceachern1...

The answer is yes and no...
Yes...If you are wanting to get on the internet to surf, check email and other net activities, then you will need the internet provider service to get you on the net such as at Starbucks, Mc Donalds, or any other "hot spot" or a home internet provider.

No...If you are going to play games, check and make notes with note pad, anything that does not involve the net

In otherwords anything that involves the net, email, surfing the net, watching YouTube,etc will not work without the internet provider service..

My battery keeps dying within 3 hours of taking it of the charger


Hello

I've found using the internet even briefly KILLS your batterys, especially if you do anything that requires streaming data (ie, youtube, streaming radio).

For instance, I listened to SomaFM streaming radio for about 10-15 minutes the other day (without headphones), and the battery went down 10% in that amount of time. You're basically talking 1% per minute when streamin audio. All I know is once this thing becomes a little more capable with streaming, I'm going to need to get a spare battery or bring my charger to work and just keep it plugged in.

Even worse is watching Youtube. I had a bit of downtime at work and watched 3-4 Bill Maher clips on youtube (this time with headphones). Over a period of 20-30 minutes, my battery went from 85-95% to 25%. It basically kills your battery, so be carefuly with youtube.

When I use my call normally for texts, emails, and calls it seems to hold a charge no problem. Especially when I consider that my brand new FULLY-charged laptop only lasts about 2 hours when
I'm using it for browsing the web.

You could also try disabling Pocketday.

How can I fix sounds delay on my Motorola HT-820? I just recently bought this items and I found out that there is a sound delay for 5-10 sec. Is this normal?


Some delay might be normal, because your phone requires some time to encode the A2DP stream, and your stereo headsets will also add some more to the total delay time, since it has to decode that stream, but it all depends on the processor's hardware and power, the application being used to play the media file, the codecs used, the headset's quality, etc. So, in general, A2DP might not be the way to go, whenever image synchronization is required, like watching movies, music clips, TV streams, etc. Wired headsets would be a better choice for such cases, instead.
In can tell you that in my current phone,an Acer Tempo M900, if I run WMP to watch a MP4 encoded music clip, with its audio being streamed via A2DP to my SE HBH-IS800 stereo headsets, the sound delay might be considered negligible. I'm pretty sure newer phones would perform even better. But I remember having experienced heavy delays with other environments in the past.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos
