Question about Acer Aspire 5920-6727 Notebook
Everytime I try to connect to the internet, (alltel wireless) it says windows sockets initialization failed.
That's common in Vista. Click on Start > Find > Files or Folders , type in winsock .
Go to where the file is located via command prompt (start - run and type "cmd" (without the quotes). for example:
if the winsock.dll is located at c:\windows\system32\winsock.dll then type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\winsock.dll . If you did this correctly you should get a message saying "winsock.ocx registration successful" or something to that effect.
Restart the computer and hopefully it'll work. If it doesnt please let us know.
