I have a copy of an invoice stuck on my desk top screen and at the bottom of screen it says Empowering Technology. How can I remove it?


Acer empowering technology refers to providing prompts on updates on drivers etc.

It does not refer to invoices. Are you sure it is not an icon or desktop picture you are looking at?

Right click on "the invoice" and look at the properties at the bottom of the menu,, it should give you a better description of the file you are looking at.

How can I reboot Acer Empowering Technology


Hi cliveboltman,

I assume you want to reinstall the acer empowering technology application.The application can be found in the Acer disc that you received with the laptop. If you misplaced or lost your disc, you can always download it from the www.acer.com website just specify your computer model and from there you can download the application. For further assistance please call your computer manufacturer.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

I am trying to connect to new acer laptop to my wireless network, but my acer empowering technology toolbar, located above my keyboard, does not seem to be working to allow me to connect to my wireless...


Hey

for this you gotta now the following:

1. ssid : this is the name of your access point (router)
2. key/passphrase: this is the network security key you configure your router with (if your router has a default configuration (the one that came with the device right out of the box which is not recommended) your key may be a blank key ... you simply don't have one set up.
3. the encryptation method: wep, wpa, wpa2. this goes again to how you have your router configured and if your don't have anything configured with your router in regards to encriptions (not recommeded) you may simply not have any encryptation that you need to select here.

important:
make sure your wireless adapter is working and is on:
your laptop may have a switch on the front to turn your wireless adapter on (i don't know what model of laptop you have so you may want to check the user manual that came with laptop to find the switch) or you may have to turn it within windows. (also check the user manual of your laptop)

now that you have the info needed and your adapter is on there are 2 ways to do this:

1. using your beloved acer empowering technology:
I found this that may guide you through the process of setting up your wireless connection
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/empowering_technology/acer_enet_management.pdf

look under the title: SETUP A NEW PROFILE and follow the instructions..

now if acer empowering does not work... you can try to setup your wireless connection with windows,

2. Using windows vista to setup your wireless connections:
I'm assuming you're using vista so here's a set of instructions with pictures you may want to take a loot at and follow

let me know how it went!
if problems.. post what you see and we'll try to give you hand. (please give as many details as possible)

E lock


The only thing i can think of is the 'e' refers definately to Empowering by Acer. It sounds as if there is a programme that has either encrypted or locked the drive to all users, so you will have to look in the Empowering technology menus for something similair. You may have to restore your system to before this happened, and if that doesn't work, you may have to get in touch with acer. There should be something in the programme that has turned it on so it must go off. You can try putting your drive on a different ide connector from the motherboard, as your pc will think it's a different drive.
