Question about Computers & Internet
Your product category does not recognize my model and requires a selection so... in order to continue. I had to selct something.
I have a brand new Toshiba P205D-S7436 laptop OS= VISTA, Eithernet or Wireless same problem. Example, I download Bible programs from TTB.org On my old IBM 600e laptop I open several MP3 file downloads in parallel. (same site, it is just that with each new added download you extend the total download time for all the downloads in progress) On this laptop I get one file started and a second one started. The second one may continue to download, may not. The 1st. may or may not continue, if they both continue adding a 3rd will sureky cause the problem. Often what I get is :save as?, X time left, and the graph bar will show the progress as well as the estimated time left and the % progress of the download, I may get 20-50% of the 2nd or first one, then it will stay like that until you get a timeout notice 20 or 30 minutes later. The only way you know the download has stopped is the % and time do not change, graph bar also does not progress, but it indicates downloading is still going on. I figured out something was up when it said 1 minute 15 seconds left until cpompletion, and still said it 10 minutes later. Yes I have tried shutting off the firewall. I had Adaware, Free AV, etc... and removed all of the programs I added after I bought the computer.
Toshiba had me use the Restore Disc, prob. continues even with no other (external) programs other than what comes with the computer.
Does 1 download at a time always complete properly? And what do you
use to download the MP3 files? Internet Explorer? If so, one thing we
can do to try and isolate the problem is to try downloading with a
different browser. Firefox is free, you might install it and try your
downloads. If they then come in properly, we can then try to see if a
fix for IE is available. But if the problem persists, it may be an
issue with Vista, or even a problem with the machine/network connection
There is one other possible issue - some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) are starting to filter for content, blocking or "delaying" packets for certain applications or file types. Comcast and one or two others have been in the news of late because of this. So, it is possible that because they are MP3 files, or if you were using say Limewire to download the files, this could be the case.

Tips for a great answer:
If you install an operating system that did not come loaded with your Acer laptop, you might find that some drivers will not install and some devices on your computer will not work.
After installing a new operating system, you may find that the keyboard will not show up on your Device Manager and likely won't even write anything.
Most laptop manufacturers have drivers for a variety of operating systems and devices that can help resolve this situation.
Go to Acer Worldwide homepage.
Select your region and country from the radio buttons and then click "Go" on the bottom of the webpage.
Click on "Service & Support."
You can find this in the top navigation links.
Click "Driver Download."
Select your product family, product line, and product model from the list provided.
After you have selected from all these categories, you will see a box with a picture of your laptop and the operating systems with which it is compatible.
Download the keyboard (if there are any) and touchpad drivers (which are related to the keyboard most of the time) from the list that appears.
You may want to review the list and download any other drivers that have been released since you purchased your laptop.
Hope this helps
