Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Hey People A few Problems that need to be Solved

I have the Acer Aspire 5633 WLMi,
Intel core duo T5500 1.66GHz
Vista Home Premium and Ultimate (Dual Booted)
Direct X 10
521mb Graphics
160Gb HDD
2 Gb RAM.

on the key board face on the far right there are buttons too;

turn volume up and down, play/pause, FF, FB

they have stopped working its the second time it happened i fixed it b4 but i have no idea how i did it ive been trying for a while now and still no luck.

any suggestions?

problem playing Oblivion, installs perfectly, open it as admin or normal it comes up with a message "widows found a problem program must close" i run it using the computability mode for XP service pack 2 and its still the same.

Im A level 2 IT practitioner going to level 3 and 4 this year so i know a fair bit about computers. just these problems im not too sure on.

anyone with problems changing the time out setting for dual booted set ups? i know the solution just ask and ill post. (its not a common thing but its dam hard to figure out how to change it)

    its nothing to do with drivers for the keyboard..... ive checked all that out. but thanks anyways.

    its not hard to run a network i know im a technician in my college we have just over 2000 computers to keep running all over campus, not just hardwired but wireless too.

    C++ A+ in cisco i have 14 weeks left and ill Be on 10 A+'s through cisco after my course has finished.

    i dunno whats highter mine or yours but im on BND after the 14 weeks wich is anouther '3' A Levels oh and then theres uni to go through too.

    n bucks? american... im British and we use pounds so im not even gonna try letting you fix it sorry.

    The dualboot on this laptop is perfectly fine its well above cisco standard and comp TiA standard. the game problem iv'e now solved, its the intergrated graphics thats the problem because intel make hem in there own building with there own software and stuff, they dont put in built pixel shades or light transfer software.

Can I load drivers downloaded to a disc,and install on other pc

Yes, go to Acer site, locate your model for drivers. Download them into a folder on your other machine (the one with internet access). Then insert a USB stick and copy and paste the folder to the stick. Now just insert the stick in the Vista machine, drag the folder to your desktop and begin installing your drivers.

Here is a link to your drivers. Click on desktop / Aspire / M1640 then make sure to set the operating system to Vista Ultimate.

Hope this helps.

Vist slow

Try increasing your RAM to 2GB ... 1GB is barely enough to run the OS, let alone an app or two.
