You are correct, the number lock is on, use the blue "FN" key and in blue under the "ins" key you should see "Num LK" push the two together and presto, normal keyboard

Pardon my ignorance but i am just a beginner.Can i watch a movie cd on my new Acer Laptop and if so what are the steps? Unfortunately no manual came with the laptop.Thank you!


Put the CD in the optical drive of the Acer laptop.

{ CD/DVD drive. Just push the button on the outside of the drive, and the optical drive tray will come out partway. Then Gently pull the tray out all the way.

Close the optical drive tray. (Gently push the tray back into the laptop)
If after a few seconds the movie doesn't start, go to My Computer, and DOUBLE-click on the drive letter associated with the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

(May be drive letter D: or E:}

[ Windows XP:
Left-click on Start, then My Computer

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Computer,
{The Windows logo button took the place of Start ]


If this doesn't do it, post back in a Comment.
(Believe upper right of your page is the blue Comment 'button')

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

State the Model Number of your Acer laptop, and I will give you a link to a free User Manual, from Acer Support.

( The Model Number is on the bottom of the laptop in a white sticker. It is above the Serial Number.
Do Not give out the Serial Number on a public forum such as this. Only to an authorized Acer dealer, or repair shop. S/N = Serial Number )

The check engine lite won't go out after removing the power comander module. 2005 dyna wide glide


Chances are the PC created a trouble code that has not been cleared.

Use your speedo to check for codes.

1. With the bike off, push and hold in your odometer reset button.
2. with the button pressed, turn the ignition on, make sure your run/stop switch is on.
3. your speedo will do a sweep and when it comes back to 0, let your finger off. You should see a variety of letters, PSS ect. if you push the button briefly you can toggle between letters, you need to check every letter. So when the letter is blinking, press and hold the button untill the screen changes. Codes will show up as P0112 or B1110 ect. keep pushing the button untill you have all the codes. You will know when your done with the letter because it will show a part number, Example, P/N 19999-03 ect. Once you go thru every letter like this, writing down the codes, you can look them up online as follows: Harley DTC P0099 ect.
4. If no codes are present, it will go staright to the P/N. and you can click out of that to the next letter.
5.To clear the codes at this point, while you are looking for codes under the different letters, Simply press and hold the button, once it shows you the code.


So show the code, press and hold button till cleared, then press and relese button quickly to move on to the next number.

If after that, you turn the ignition off, then back on like normal, and the light should come back on shortly, but, once you start your engine the light should be off.

4. If no codes are present, it will go staright to the P/N. and you can click out of that to the next letter.
5. Also check for intake leaks and exhuast leaks by running the bike at idle, and spraying something like WD-40 or water at the intake and exhuast manifolds. Make sure you dont spray near the air filter, this will give you a false reading.
6. once you found the codes, more than likely you will have to take it in. Email me the codes and ill try and help the best I can.

What buttons do i push to set the clock


Not knowing what radio you have, My 99 has 2 small letters below the tuning dial . Look for little letter "H" & one "M" right under it. Stick a pin or pen in and push to advance the number.

This happened to me on Christmas Day morning & it happened once before. I finally remembered how I fixed it. Push the "Clear" button & then push the "Start" & keep it held in until you see the lock button light up (takes awhile - be patient) & then push the "Clear" button again. After I did this the "Clock" worked again - reset the clock to the correct time & push "Start" Then click on "Bake" set your temperature & push "Start". Hope this works for you. It got me out of cooking Christmas Dinner!!!

Only typing half letters and numbers


On the WheelWriter series, sometimes the platen may pop out of position, causing only half the letters to print. If this is the case, easially solved... Using the left and right platen knobs, firmly push down to lock it back in place. Hope this helps....MediaMan
