Good Day,

That could be due to overheating. I can recommend cleaning the fan vents with a can of compressed air. You can also purchase a cooling pad. See pic's below, Most electronic's stores and office supply store's will have these available, or you canpurchase them on the
net.

    Basically the can spray's air at high velocity's, spray it into the vents on your laptop. Over time dust builds on the fan blades which can slow the fan down, and make the fan blades less aerodynamic, thus overheating your laptop. The cooling pad (see pic) is a small pad which has fans built in to it,you place the laptop on the pad while you are using it and the fans in the pad keep it cool.

No wireless


Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.
The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.
Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.
Turn on the laptop.
Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.


Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.
Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.
In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle; In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide.
Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.
If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

Weird message


check if there is a device driver conflict...a reinstallation of the OS to another hard disk might be easier to do the troubleshooting...in this case you can install the camera driver first and later monitor each application that interferes with it.

P6860fx Performance Issue


Hello,

1st of all you can not expoect great gaming perfomance in Notebook.
even the notebooks having NVEDIA Gforce 8400, 256 MB was not even comparable to my old desktop having NVEDIA 6200, 256 mb in a AMD Sempron 1.8 Ghz, 512 RAM desktop PC.

If you are a hardcore gamer, go for PS3 or XBOX 360, or may opt for a Desktop with good graphics.

And yes,there are NO alternatives to 3dmark. Plus to get good performance, look at the HEAT level of the Notebook.
Laptops freeze maximum time due to processor heating.
If your Notebook freezes due to heat in Less than 3 hour, its time you contact for a replacement.
