Did you get a software CD with this speaker set? Check the box and ensure that it says it's compatible with Windows Vista. I'm not aware of any speaker sets that wouldn't be, but it's always a possibility.

Also, more importantly, plug in the speakers before turning the laptop on. Many powered speaker sets will not work if you plug them in while the system is on.

Acer aspire t 180 cant get pc to recognize digital camera photo memory card


Has the computer recognized the memory card in the past? If so, try download and reinstalling the memory card driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Card Reader drivers.



If after installing the drivers the reader still does not work, you can purchase a multi format card reader that will plug into you usb port from Tiger Direct for less than $15. at



http://www.tigerdirect.com



When the site comes up just put in the search at the top "SD Card Reader or XD Card Reader" depending you your type and press GO. You can sort the returned results by Price Low to High.



Do you have a USB Cable that came with the camera that you can plug into one of the usb ports on the computer? If so, try that. It's another way of getting pictures off the camera. Plug the cable on the camera and into the computer then turn the camera on. The computer will recognize the camera and install the drivers. You can navigate through the camera folders just like you do any other device to find the pictures.

clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

How do i download pictures from a verizon lg cellphone


There are a number of ways to do it. 1) you can use a cable that plugs into the camera and the other end of the cable plugs into the usb port of the computer. Most camera's come with this cable, if not it's a pretty common cable to purchase for less than $10.00. Once you plug it into both the camera and the computer, turn the camera on and the computer will recognize the usb camera device. You'll have to navigate to where your pictures are but that should be easy just open the folders until you find them. 2) you can buy a usb card reader than handles different types of cards. Remove the card from the camera and place it in the card reader device. Once again your computer will recognize the usb card reader and you can navigate thru the folders to find your pictures. 3) You can email them to yourself then go to the computer and open your emails and save the pictures.

How to hook up our new computer


Fortunately, the cables will only fit into a matching port. If the end of the cable is USB, plug it into a USB port, for example. The shape of the cable end will basically tell you how to hook it up.

I purchased a new laptop, the usb hub cord is not long enough to reach my usb slots on the laptop so I purchased a usb extension cord 3' from radioshack, but when I use it vista says it does not recognize...


You may need a 2.0 USB cable. Read on:
The cables will most definitely look the same. That's because the connectors didn't change between USB 1.1 and 2.0.
But not all cables that look the same are the same.

A higher quality 1.1 cable stands a better chance of working at 2.0 speeds. What do I mean by quality? Well, it's nothing that's visible, I'm afraid. It has to do with the quality of the wires used and especially the shielding against electrical interference. Higher speeds are more susceptible to interference and noise - either from the outside, or from the USB signals themselves.
I also say in "typical" usage, because not all scenarios are the same either. For example a short cable is more likely to work than a long one. If you have an electrically noisy environment that might cause problems.
And of course the devices themselves play a big role. Some devices are more tolerant of weak or noisy signals than other. Purchase a 2.0 USB cable, it is not expensive.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

ILink cable and laptop


I would have to consult your manuals.

I think that you are saying you want to connect USB. Nearly all computer ports are the SAME. [USB A]. Devices, on the other hand have maybe 6 connections. A very popular one is like a mini-usb. Look in the manual for what it says it is, take the camcorder with you when you exchange the cable.

You must to buy and use an active USB hub.It's like the ordinary USB,but have own power supply.I think your speaker haven't enough power,so try to use the active HUB!!It works.
You can purchase it in any PC shop,or the Internet shop etc.
