My computer model is acer L5100. I on it,i says no signal. I tried it afew times, it just says no signal


If you are getting "no signal" on your monitor right away when you start the computer, then try installing a dedicated video card.

If you get a signal right away and you can read info on the screen, but then it becomes "no signal". You should try getting the correct drivers for your video card here:
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

To install the drivers just boot into safe mode by pressing F8 several times when you start the computer until the boot menu comes up. Then select "safe mode with networking" or "safe mode"

...you can also try reinstalling your chipset drivers from here:

If new drivers are available they will be automatically installed.

M trying to activate my wireless connection for my acer x1200 do I need a disk or can I press certain buttons to activate the wireless


You should be able to see there might be an antenna on the back of your computer which is part of the wireless network adaptor. I checked the specification of your computer and did not see wireless card included. You may need to buy one internal wireless card or a USB wireless card to use wireless feature. You will need to install the driver and configure it to use a wireless access point on some of the wireless cards. Usually you can turn on wireless by using network connection or using the connect to item in the start menu if you are using Windows Vista.

How to install an wirless adapter to mi desktop


Install a wireless network adapterIn areas that are served by a wireless network, you can connect to a computer network without using a cable, and surf the Internet or connect with other computers. To connect to a wireless network, your computer needs a wireless network adapter.
Many new computers-especially laptops-come with wireless adapters. Before using your computer, check to see if it already has a wireless network adapter.
If your computer doesn't have a wireless network adapter, you can install one.
Install a wireless USB network adapter. Most people prefer this type of adapter for any type of computer, because it's easy to install.
Install a wireless CardBus or CF network adapter. For portable computers, this type of adapter (also called a PCMCIA or PC Card) is easier to travel with than a USB adapter, because it is often smaller and fits securely in the PC Card slot on the side of the computer.
Install a wireless internal network adapter. If you have a desktop computer, you may prefer an internal adapter so that you can use the USB port to connect another accessory.
The type of adapter you install depends on your computer and your level of expertise.
How to determine if you already have a wireless network adapterMany portable computers manufactured after 2000 have wireless networking built in. However, because the antenna is hidden inside the computer, it's not easy to see.
To see which network adapters are currently installed in your computer
1.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

Click Network and Internet Connections.
69010-click-network-and-internet-connections.gif 3.
Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
69010-click-network-connections.gif 4.
Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

Internet speed problem


Hi,
Use the below steps.

1. Internet Speed Problems caused by Binding too many Agreements on Network Card
Slow internet surfing speed is a usual problem among LAN users because there are too many agreements binding on the Network Card. If a NIC is bound lots of agreements then the computer has to spend more time on identifying which agreement would transmit a certain group of data that passes it. PC users will feel uncomfortable at the moment when they are surfing the Internet. Here is a solution for this situation: a. Use a Network Card to run only PPPOE agreement to connect ADSL; this will provide the exterior connection of internet. b. Use another one to run other agreements in order to boost its performance so that the speed of internet surfing would be improved obviously.
2. Internet Speed Problems caused by Unbound TCP/IP Agreement.
Unbound TCP (Transport Control Protocol)/IP (international agreement) may be caused by reasons as follow: a. the driver of Network Card is installed incorrectly. b. There is a problem with quality of Network Card. c. PCI slot is broken. Solution for this situation: You should uninstall NIC driver in the Device Manager at first----reinstall the driver after you reboot your computer. If you still fail to improve the internet speed with this solution, please change a PCI slot for Network Card or change a new one.
3. Internet Speed Problems caused by low quality of telephone line.
If the phone line is affected by some bad extraneous factors, network device will adjust client access rate automatically and dynamically according by the quality of line and transmission distance. The Internet surfing Speed also will be affected by the export bandwidth, the website line from opponents and the device configuration if you try to visit foreign website.
4. Internet Speed Problems caused by too much installed Internet Explorer plug-ins.
Internet Explorer plug-ins would be installed or loaded on your computer automatically when you open Internet Explorer and visit website. Surfing speed of course will be slowed down by too much Internet Explorer plug-ins. It is highly recommended to use some optimization tools to optimize your speed of Internet and clean some disused Internet Explorer plug-ins to speed up Internet surfing.

My e machine keeps restarting off the menu screenand wont start up windows


You have a Boot Virus. You must Re Install Windows from the Original CD. Then go to www.gateway.com and download the Drivers from the website for your Specific Model Computer. If you have a 2nd computer, I'd go to the Gateway site FIRST. Download and burn to CD the Drivers for Network Card, Audio and Video. That way when you re install Windows XP, you have the drivers needed.
