    Reformatted not sure how to enable the wifi device. If any one can supply me with the correct driver for my Acer aspire 5050 please email me the link or file to make Wi-fi working. I'm also having trouble with the sound, there is nothing coming out of the device.



    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please Check in device manager, is there any problem with the driver ?
if there is a problem with driver, try to download driver from www.acerpanam.com and install it.
if there isnot any problem, try to enable wireless from the switch (close to external audio port)

How bluetooth turn on in acer aspire 5050


having had and worked on a quite a few laptops, most acers that have bluetooth software is on the laptop it doesnt mean it is fitted with bluetooth. the review site for that laptop doesnt say it is fitted for it. usually windows will have its own bluetooth control cente (xp pro sp2, vista) once there is a device installed. if you cant find any way to start bluetooth and have a device installed. check control pannel for a bluetooth icon.
