I had exactly the same problem as the original poster - but after downloading the latest driver + software package from Intel's website, everything now seems to be working just fine.

It appears that the driver for the network adapter - the wireless card, did not install properly. I would do the recovery again and make note of any errors you encounter. The recovery CD might be bad. There is also a possibility that the wireless card is bad. Before you do another recovery, see if you still get the blue screen with the wireless card removed.

I can't get on the internet with a Acer Travelmate 290 I tried almost everything. Wireless internet and cabled nothing seems to work.


If your model has the internet Icon on the right side task bar click on it and go to network and sharing. Try set up a new connection or network. You could also try resetting your modem by unplugging it for about 30 sec. that way it will reset your isp. hope i was some help

I own an acer travelmate 290, and getting no display on monitor.


First check to see if your PC has a built in factory restore, or system recovery, usually available using CTRL & F12, F10, etc. Check your manual, if you don't then, OK try this, Startup PC, press F8 at instant of turn on... choose Safe Mode. when you are asked if you want safe desktop or system restore choose restore, when you get to the restore menu, choose a date BEFORE you had problems there may only be one or two to choose from. just follow the instructions and you should be back to working with all that behind you. If that doesn't work, boot up on your Windows DVD and do a "Repair Install", If thats doesn't work do a format and a reinstall.

Having problems with my acer travelmate 4060


Get virus scanner/remover, and then try restore to a date when the computer was in full working order. If that does not work, try to backup valuable data files before original default factory settings, and get model-specific drivers etc from Acer and Microsoft websites.
