Sure...it's in the Internet settings on IE..I'm assuming we're talking about the Vista version, yes?

under Tools, Internet Options...Connections

Lan Settings.

Automatically detect the settings.

Or we can arrange a conversation directly.

Got backup?

Hello my acer aspire 5520 won't load up Internet explorer keeps saying Internet explorer has stopped working a problem caused the program to stop working correctly !any ideas how to sort this please?


Assuming windows XP Pro:
Go to control panel, internet Options, go through and set all settings to default, delete cookies and cache.

The workaround for now is to install latest Firefox browser.

My acer 5520 will not allow me to access the internet via wifi?


1)Turn ON the wireless feature on your laptop. It will be a combination of function keys.
2)Remove preferred networks
3)Assign DNS server address manually in Wireless Network Connections Properties
4)Try to scan for wireless networks in range now with/without security
5)Try Internet explorer, else mozilla firefox, else google chrome.
It will surely go online wireless

I can't Browse in Mozilla Firefox...It says it might be prevented by firewall or proxy.But I can't fix it.


Do you have IE installed. I highly recommend having more than one browser installed. try browsing with IE...if you can get online then the problem is with Firefox....

How do you connect to the Internet? Check network connections in Control panel..make sure your preferred connection profile is enabled.

I cannot turn on my acer aspire 5520. when i press the on button, the light flashes and goes off. plzzz help


Hi there! this is a possible power supply problem or the power button from the laptop is faulty.. But first I suggest that you use a different working power adapter that is same power supply for your laptop and try to remove the battery and try to clean the contact point of your batter, to further isolate the problem, if you did this troubleshooting and still doing the same thing I suggest that you bring ur laptop to acer for check up and repair of the power supply system of the laptop, if your laptop still under warranty, bring it to the service center right away.. if not then u can try doing the troubleshooting..
