Press and Hold the 'Control' key as you click each item you want to delete. Once you have them all selected (Highlighted) press the 'Delete' key. You will be asked if you're sure before the files are deleted, and when they are removed you can find them in the 'Recycle Bin' where you can 'Restore' them if needed.
Using the 'Shift' key instead of the 'Control' key you can select multiple items quickly. Simply click the mouse on the first item (while holding the 'Shift' key), then click the last item. All items between the first and last will be selected and can be deleted by using the 'Delete' key. You can also use a combination of the 'Shift' and 'Control' keys for selecting items.
You can also use the mouse. Just hold the left mouse button down and drag it to form a box around the items you want to select, let go of the button when they are selected and press Delete.

A good place to start is...

Start>Run>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs

You can uninstall lots of programs here.

If you are trying to delete, lets say a bunch of files at once, here are some useful shortcuts.

Ctrl+Click will highlight everything you click on then you can hit delete once.

Click one item then Hold Shift+Click to select all files inbetween your first and last click.

Drag a box with the left mouse button to highlight multiple icons/files then hit delete.

Acer x3300 desktop does not start


It could be a number of things. I would start with RAM or Motherboard. RAM is easy. If you have multiple sticks. Pull them all out and place them back in. If that is a no go and you have multiple, Pull all the sticks and put one in at a time. If it boots with one stick then you have a bad RAM stick. With all of that said, I would worry that it is motherboard since it won't take you to the BIOS screen.

You do not have to reinstall the OS. You can uninstall Norton if that is posing problems. To do the go to Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs and select Norton. Remove from the laptop. But, do not remove anything that is related to Acer. Then your laptop will go phut.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

How can I connect external 5.1 speakers to my Acer 5920 Laptop


welll.... you can hook multiple speakers up in parallel if you wish... but it will still be stereo... just through more speakers that's all.

You will need an external sound card if you want real DD5.1 sound. An excellent choice for a laptop is the Audigy 2 ZS video editor. It's an all-in-one device.. audio in/outs, video in/outs, 5.1 sound, 4 port usb hub, firewire connect and a few more things. The neat part is that it hooks up with one simple usb cable.
