Question about Acer Aspire 3100-1405 Notebook

Mail problem I have an acer 3100 with windows vista. Every time I am on an internet site and it says send us an email I get-could not perform because the deault mail client is not properly installed. I have to write down their email and go to my hotmail site and type it in and then send it. It only started happening with Vista. I am tempted to have my old windows installed. This crap gets old.

How can i re boot my computer as bought

You need to reinstall Windows again from scratch using the Recovery CD, if you have not got it you can purchase one from Acer.
Otherwise you nee a Windows installation CD with the product installation code and after you have installed Windows you need to install the device drivers for the devices that are installed on your Acer.

You can download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support :-

I have windows vista


check for any settings that are required by the email provider, like if the mails are to be sent under gmail or yahoo they require you to be sending the mail through a secure port like 995 and others

also for gmail you have to activate the pop3 mails from the site before getting them on you system

hope this helped

pls rate the solution if it was any help

I have an Acer Aspire 3100. I can not connect to the internet.

Try visiting the Windows Update page.

Usually when I have problems like this after a few updates the problem disappears.

Is the wireless network password protected?

My Internet Explorer Wont Work!!

Firstly, I assume you are connected to the internet.
If you are running a firewall make sure that the firewall is not blocking I.E access to the internet.

If you are not running a firewall (which you should be) can you send a receive information packets?
To check this, you'll need to open up a command prompt windows (start-all programs-accessories)

type: ping

after a few moment you should see something like:

the numbers may vary a little but the point is that you get a reply. At this point you know you are able to send and receive over the internet. CHECK FIREWALL

If you get:


or a "request timed out"

This shows that you cannot send or receive data. You'll need to check your LAN connection/cable/router etc.

But do check firewall settings first.

Vista/Acer Aspire and Hotmail

If you have Microsoft Defender running, you may have it set on default which I found too restrictive. Try this site for "How-to"

Windows vista and hotmail

Well thats funny Hotmail is owned by Microsoft and this is Hotmails address


I would take it up with MIcrosoft if I were you only they can help you if your Vista cannot recognise Hotmail unless your signing in through a client for instance Outlook express or any other client.  Hotmail will not connect to any clients other than the above link.

Hard disk problem

If your Wundows vista is a full install program you should have deleted and created the partion then formatted the new partition before installing windows vista. Try this again if you hard drive is stuffed you will need a new one Im afraid but windows vista will tell you this before it installs itself. Goodluck!!!!!
