Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

2 Answers

Going fullscreen i have had this problem for awhile and though it was justthe internet messing up, so i waited and thought it would go away on its own. whenever i watch something on any website and try to switch to full screen view all i get is a black screen. i have to hit esc to exit back to the internet window. i think my friend messed up the settings on my computer cause he changed it up alot when he didnt know what he was doing. what do i do?

No FullScreen

Either update your flash or re-install the video driver for your laptop. Go to google and lookup Acer Support. Then put the model number in and they should provide drivers.
