Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I Acer Aspire 5100, and i changed my operating system from Vista home to Vista Business, and now i cannot able to connect to internet, i also did't creat recovery disc, now i have nothing of vista home, i download all drivers for aspire 5100 from internet through my another PC, and installed to my acer laptop, but i can't solve the internet connection and window media player, i am really tired looking for some help from you Guys, Please Help me. what should i do?
Is it compatible vista business to acer aspire 5100?
You didn't state what kind of net connection you are using, dial-up, cable, sattelite.
If, for instance, you have cable, is the modem connected directly to one computer, or several, via router and ifso on the router is it "wireless" or cable connected?
If you are using anything OTHER THAN dial-up, I recommend, that you unplug the router AND modem, look for "resets" on both, sometimes the reset will look like a small resessed pin that must be pushed on with a pen or toothpick.(hold down for 30 seconds) Leave them unplugged...I would advise 5 minutes, then reconnect cables and power supplys and try again.
If none of this works and you have had electrical storms,(and sometimes wind damages cable if pole mounted) you may have surge-damaged routers/ and or modems. I usually have to reset mine after every lighting storm, and had to replace a damaged router twice. Sadly on another note, I would not recommend vista to anyone, I would however recommend XP media center for computers that have specs for it.
Hope this will help.
