Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

Woke up this morning to find water was spilt on the desk my laptop was sitting on. The laptop was off but the A/C adapter was still plugged in as was the battery. I'm not sure if the keyboard was exposed to the water but the underside of the laptop was soaked. When I opened the battery compartment there was indications that water had seeped into it. I have detached the laptop from the power supply and taken out the battery. I have dried the parts that were wet including the battery. I have left it for a day and then tried to put the battery back in and connect the A/C adapter. When I try switching it back on nothing happens. No power sems to be getting to the laptop via the battery or the adapter. What could have happened and is the fixable?

WATER WILL USUALLY DRY OUT WITHIN ONE TO TWO DAYS AND USUALLY THINGS WILL WORK, LIFT UP COMPUTER AND SHAKE TO SEE IF WATER COMES OUT, LEAVE SET UP ON SIDE TO SEE IF WATER DRAINS DOWN AND OUT. MAY HAVE SHORTED OUT THE POWER SUPPLY. ALSO MAKE SURE CHARGER UNIT IS WORKING.. GOOD LUCK

your dell needs a network adapter card or wireless card installed is that the case(look in b ack)

if no wireless, then it needs an ethernet cable plugged into modem/router from cin bell and then in back of dell

please advise your network configuration

CAN'T CONNECT TO THE INTERNET. DELL DEMENTIONS 1100 DESK TOP WINDOWS XP COMCAST SAID IT'S THE LAN ADAPTER.


You can download the LAN and device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Touchscreens are EXPENSIVE and difficult to replace. It's not even just soldering. I'd look up any warranties you have on the laptop and see if you can get it fixed for free. But first - try a few things. I know that for some people this may sound like baby talk, but it is the proper procedure to go through.
1. Make sure that the wiring is firmly and correctly plugged in. Your cat may have knocked the graphics port loose by traveling behind the PC.
2. Check and see if you can get another monitor to work on it. Most modern LCD/LED/Plasma televisions have a port you can use.

If that doesn't work, your monitor is actually fine, and you'll probably need a new graphics card. Again, check all warranties, consult your manual, and see if your computer/monitor manufacturer will fix it free of charge under the warranty.

I have an acer aspire desk top computer can i put a wireless card in it


The mini Acer uses a "small form factor" (SFF) and doesn't have room inside the case for standard expansion cards. These systems were not intended to be opened and worked on. You can still use a USB wireless adapter, though. Simply plug the adapter into an available USB connection on the rear panel, follow the adapter manufacturer's installation instructions, and you will have wireless capability.

Thanks but I need help just getting online


It could be a difference configuration of the ethernet adapters on each machine.

Try this from each machine when connected to the cable.
(assumes Windows XP)

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt A new window will open -- in that window type the following

ipconfig /all

If this works copy the following for each adapter (there may be more than one per machine)

Adapter
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS Address(es) may be more than one

Put the answers in a comment to this problem and I will attempt to provide additional steps to resolve the issue.

one possibility --
If you loaded your DNS addresses into the laptop's adapter configuration and not into the desktop's laptop configuration that could be the issue.

There could be other issues the ipconfig answers should narrow down the problem so a specific solution can be given.
