Ahh, I would recommend not writing in all Caps, ;), it seems to be as though your computer is infected with spyware/viruses. I HIGHLY reccomend you attempt to download and install Spybot - Search and Destroy, available here: Site: Safer-Networking.org | Click here for Download

I have a Compaq Presario S5140WM with no sound, and apparently the correct software/drivers are installed. I don't know what it could be... Help?


Quick answer since i assume you have tried most things, i would suggest you go into the bios which is the startup of the computer NOT the starting windows. The delete key or some other combination will get you into it, Just check on the net for it. How do i get into the bios for........

Once you are in there what you will be looking for is the section that says onboard sound or else the AC97 sound. Check to make sure that is enabled, if it says disabled change it to enabled this will get you your onboard sound card to work.

WARNING AND PAY ATTENTION unless you know what you are doing in the bios touch nothing else. You start playing in there without knowing what your doing and it could be months before you get your computer up and running again. Not to scare you to badly.

Hope this helps

Hi, I hope you can help as Acer can't!! I have an Acer Veriton M221 about 15 months old and recently on boot up I get error message Case Opened press F1 to continue or Del to enter Bios. I have not...


Have you tried this:

1) Reboot your computer and Enter Setup.
2) Click on the tab labeled PC Health Status.
3) Find the feature labeled Chassis Intrusion Detect, and change the status to RESET
4) Press the Esc key to access the main menu and then use the arrow keys to choose Save & Exit from the menu.
Do NOT use the F10 key. If you use F10 key to Save & Exit, it does not properly reset this feature!!!!
If you wish to set the Chassis Intrusion Detect feature so it never generates a warning message at boot, follow these instructions
A) Reboot your computer a 2nd time and Enter Setup.
B) Click on the tab labeled PC Health Status again..
C) Find the feature labeled Chassis Intrusion Detect, and this time change the status to DISABLED
D) Press the Esc key to access the main menu and then use the arrow keys to choose Save & Exit from the menu.
Do NOT use the F10 key. If you use F10 key to Save & Exit, it does not properly reset this feature!!!!

When re-starting the PC, a message appears about "Fan Failure" and to key in "F-1 or F-2". I'm such a novice, I don't know if my PC has one fan or two... or even where it/they are. The PC still is...


Thank you for your question, Billie.

As this relates to cooling, I would suggest it needs to be resolved before using the computer again. The problem will not correct itself in the majority of instances. Turn off your PC, you will need to take the cover off your PC, there should be at least two fans visible. One on the motherboard (CPU Fan) and one possibly attached to the case. It is likely one of those is not spinning and the BIOS is alerting you to this fact. If the fan is not spinning follow the wires back to the motherboard for the fans and "reseat" them by pushing them firmly back onto their pins. Do not use force, the pins are strong but do not like undue pressure applied to them. Leave the cover off, make sure all cords are out of the fans way and restart your computer. No error message, problem solved, replace the cover.

If this is not the reason, then I would suggest you have a look visually if the fans are operating when you turn the machine back on. If one or both are not operating, it is usually time to replace that fan. It is quite an easy swap, but if you don't feel confident, use a computer savvy friend/relative.

This are the most easy/common fan problems, other problems can be in BIOS settings and you will need to do some research or use your computer savvy person.

Kind regards

Where do i find the volume icon?? it's lost somewhere and can't hear any volume?


Try this:

Go to click on "Start."
Go to "Control Panel."
If you're using XP, go to "Sound."
If you're using Vista/7, got to "Hardware and Sound."

If everything is grayed out on the sound control applet, it is possible that the hardware is disabled or the drivers for the audio device is not installed.

To check on the status of the hardware device:

Click on "Start."
If you have XP, click on "Run." type the command devmgmt.msc
If you have Vista/7, on the search bar, type Device Manager, then click on the first result.
It will display the Device Manager which allows you to check the status of the devices installed on your computer
Go to "Sound." Click on the "+" sign. Check if there are any devices with a red X or a yellow exclamation point.

If there is a device under "Other Devices" that says "Audio Controller," it means that the drivers for the device is not installed. If this happens, try looking up the specifications of your computer online to check for the specific audio device that you have and then download the drivers online.

Hope this helps! :D

I need to turn on my help and support server


I believe you mean help and support service. In which case:

1> Go Start -> Control Panel -> ( under Performance) Admin Tools -> Computer Mangement
2> After opening the computer manager, you'll see three explorer branches on the left of the util, the last will be Services and Applications. Click the + next to it to expand it if needed.
3>Under Services and Apps, click on Services in the left explorer panel.
4> It should show several services to the right hand side. Click anywhere on a service and hit "h" to fast navigate until you hit Help and Support.
4.1>On the same line as the name, there should be an entry saying what startup mode it is in - Auto, Manual, or Disabled. If it is in auto, it should already be running, and the "Status" field should say "Started" - if it isn't started, it will be in step 5.
4.2If the service is on Manual, it wont start itself - if you need it in the future, you should right click on the entry and then Properties.
4.2.1>Once in properties, make sure you're in the "General" tab. Once there, a pop-down field next to a label of "Startup type" is where you want to change it to Automatic.
4.3> If the service is Disabled, you will need to follow step 4.2, and set it through Properties to either Manual or Auto.
5> Right Click the entry for Help and Support, and click Start. This should start the service.

Have a nice day and please rate. Thank you.

When I turn on my Acer laptop, I get a message box saying "Check the status of your Acer eNet Services" and I don't know what to do. Thank you very much.


I followed the instructions given by one of your tech support guys - had a little trouble finding my way through the control panel services lists but in the end manged to fix my problem. I went into control panel, administrative tools, component services, services. I clicked the disabled files associated with my Acer eNet Services and made them automatic. Don't know why they became disabled to begin with but I had just downloaded an update Mozilla Firefox and Java - whether this had anything to do with it or not. Thanks for the help.

Strange behavior


Hi again VampireVenus ,

My apologies for the delay in response. I had to iron out something with some of my colleagues about your post

To your problem at hand; If I am not mistaken, the unit is a couple of years old and therefore we could expect some deterioration in any of the hardware components. It is also possible that it could be due to dirt accumulated. If you feel comfortable opening your unit and performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then it should be possible to restore the PC to operational status.

Why don't we try cleaning first the inside. Upon removal of the side panel, pls pay special attention to the following:
1. heatsink and fan of the CPU;
2. memory and memory slots;
3. video card, video card heatsink & blower, AGP slot;
4. additionally, you can use a pencil eraser to clean the little gold pins of the memory and the video card (assuming the computer has an add-on video card and not a built-in to the motherboard).

A clean, dry paint brush would help. A vacuum cleaner would also be nice. For those areas that are hard to reach, a can of compressed air could be used.

Additionally, there would be a coin size battery inside, should it possible, it may also be worth your while to replace it.

Further, pls verify that the cables are connected snug and fit.

Will look forward to your update(s).
