You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

How do I activate and turn on the wireless switch on acer aspire 5100 laptop where is the switch located

The wireless switch is on the front edge of the computer.
There are 2 little slider switches to the left of the external mic,phone,aux sockets.
The switch that is the right hand of the two, is the wireless switch. (the one on the left is for bluetooth)
It is a momentary action switch, when you slide it to the left, it springs back.
When you slide it to the left, an orange light to the left of the switch should come on, also a green message appears briefly at the bottom of the screen.
To turn it off, slide it again, to the left and the light on the switch should turn off.

Acer aspire 5100 won't stay on when booting on battery

replace the battery. Batteries usually only last about two years and it sounds like it just cant hold any more juice. To find a battery go to and type in the model of computer and push search. Sorry for the news but its an easy fix

Acer 5100

Are you able to restore the computer if so that may be your problem. By the way you have explained it seems like a software problem and not a hardware one.
