I formatted my pc purposely to install windows 7.after this,windows fail to install so i re-install windows xp.after this my wireless fail to work.when i tried it says'no supported wireless adapters...

If your computer originally was shipped with Windows XP pre-installed, and you used the "System Restore" CD/DVD disks that were shipped with the computer to reload Windows XP, the correct device-driver for the wireless-adapter should have been automatically installed.

If you used a different disk to reinstall Windows XP, then you can try two things:

1. Access ACER's web-site, do a search for your model, and see if the web-site offers the device-drivers for Windows XP for your model, or,

2. use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the Internet, and access: and do a "Custom" scan. When the scan completes, click the "Optional Hardware Updates" section, to see if Windows Update is offering a device-driver for your wireless adapter. If so, select and install that adapter.

No sound from computer

Connect to the Internet.
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Look for any "unknown devices", or devices with a YELLOW question-mark.
Double-click that device, and click "reinstall driver".
Click 'yes' to "may I access the Internet to search for a driver".
Windows should install a suitable device-driver.

Or, try and do a "custom" scan.
On the left, click the "Optional Hardware", to see if Windows Update has a device-driver that it wants to install. Click to install that device-driver.

Code 28

In most cases this problem code 28 occurs when Windows 2000 is upgraded to Windows XP and the sound card driver becomes deleted. To resolve this problem on your Windows XP. Right click "My computer" and select the "Manage" tab. This will open a window. In the left pane of the Windows click on "Device Manager". On the right side of the Window you will see a list of generic devices installed on your computer.In the list double click on "Sound Video and Game controllers". Once you see your sound card you right click it and on the opened window click on the Update tab. In most cases the code 28 problem is resolved that way but if rarely the problem still continues try downloading and reinstalling the sound card driver.

Good Luck!

I have problem with Wireless network connection (Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection) on Sony Vaio vgn-fs960p model. I'd reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2, since that WLAN can't detect and connect to...

I suggest uninstalling and re-installing (which the operating system will prompt you to let it do automatically) the Intel PRO wireless device. That should do it. If you must provide authentication details in order to connect to a given access point (if it is Secure), then you'll need to do that again (manually) also.

Before doing so, make sure that you're running the DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) service. That's what enables wireless devices to get an IP address on the LAN to which you're trying to connect. Also make sure that the manufacturer's or your operating system's utility required to actuate the device Service is running.

To examine and modify (use caution here) system Services in Windows, Run the following command from a command line: services.msc

If User Access Control is enabled (it is enabled by default), it will prompt you for permission to run the MMC (Microsoft Management Console) required to change the state or setup of your system Services first. In order for the wireless device to connect it must both have said utility running (mine in Vista Business is called WLAN AutoConfig--make sure it's set to start in Automatic mode before you reboot).

To uninstall the device in Windows (Mac will be similar), right-click it from its listing the Device Manager (use Windows Help if you don't know how to run the Device Manager) applet and select Uninstall this device... You will also need to reboot because devices have "monitor/system level priority" and rebooting will ensure that the system will talk directly to the correct(ed) driver for the device.

Audio device erased

You have to reinstall your audio driver. Answers to your questions: 1. You can locate it in your Device Manager. Locate and expand Sound,video and game controllers. 2. You don't have to delete legacy drivers because reinstalling your audio driver will update it. Right click your audio software the one you found in the Device Manager and update it. It will find your installation cd of your system drivers. Else, manually install the audio driver.

Wireless connection no longer works after vista upgrade

HP uses "branded" wireless modules,which means it's got to be HP or it doesn't get to play.
Does device manager see the wireless device? I've had similar situations with the 8000s. Always the driver or the wireless utility was the problem. Try letting windows manage the device, or if you already are, disable that and use the devices utiliy to manage it.
BTW, most systems consider BT as wireless.
Good luck, hope that helps
