You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system

Hi can anyone help please, my acer 5050 wireless is not working, just installed windows


1. locate the Wireless communication switch/indicator at the front of 5050 just left of headphone jack.
2. slide switch momentarily to the right.
3. you should see "Wireless LAN Enabled" in green letters at the bottom of the screen
4. a little screen icon should appear in the Taskbar at the bottom right of the screen
5. if it has a little red x beside it, right click on it for more options.
6. if it has no red x, you were automatically connected to a wireless that is open (no security enabled)
7. with the red x and after the right click, in the pop-up, click on View Available Wireless Networks
8. in the Wireless Network Connections window, if no list then click on Refresh network list
9. click on the SSID name for your wireless router to Chose a wireless network
10. click the Connect button to connect to the high-lighted network
11. if your wireless router has security (WEP or WPA) enabled, a pop-up will ask for the network key
12. enter Network key and repeat entry in next line to Confirm network key and click Connect button
13. the little screen icon should no longer have a red x beside it
14. hovering the mouse cursor over the icon will get a pop-up with wireless connection status

Acer Aspire 5050 - The wireless connection is turned off but there is no button to switch it on, can you tell me how to do it please? Thanks


Well There must be a switch on it. If You are pretty sure about this that its not there.
Than you can do one thing Look on the keyboard and observe the keys carefully you will find an icon on the keyboard look like an antena symbol look below:964e9d5.jpg
Or Somewhat change on this icon. The default key on most keyboards is F2 or sometimes you need to hold down the Fn Key and they press the F2 Key

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank


Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.
