Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

No sound Hi, Since about 3 weeks ago I have not had any sound on my laptop. I have tried the suggestions made to others but still no luck. Someone said to click on the volume icon on the lower right hand side by the clock but I don't have one. I used to just use fn and the arrow keys. I also can't locate the mute button to check that. Thank you anne

You might have already tried this, but:
1) press the "start" or windows logo button at the bottom-left hand corner of the screen.
2) press "control panel" on the right side of the menu.
3) press the "sound" button (thumb-nails should be alphabetically ordered.)
you should be on the tab "playback". if so, check if you are currently using "realtek high-defenition audio". there should be a little green check-mark.
once you have that done, check to see if the "fn + arrow key(s)" button(s) work. if not, then you must have a speaker problem.

the last laptop i had had speakers that worked great, but they just stopped working one day all of the sudden...
so i just used the headphones port to plug in some speakers and that worked just fine.
try external speakers if you can not solve this soon.

best wishes,
Piggers

Hi
Try to unplug the power cable of your router for a minute or 2 to re-establish its connection to server. Then try reconnecting to your home network.
Hope this helps

Can't access internet wireles router says connected hp is a vista


If Nothing else changed in the last 2 weeks, such as a new router, or other hardware changes, AND it just started happening, I suggest you do a "system restore" to a date BEFORE the problem started.
This should correct the problem, and if you did any updates or other software installations, you will need to re install them.

Finally, one option prior to system restoring is to turn off the wireless router (unplug it) and then wait a minute. Plug back in. Then turn on your computer. You can try this first if you haven't already..
Good luck..

It Sounds like your motherboard that faulty, Cause if it boots into the Bios with the hdd removed, then its your motherboard, I have had the same problem a week ago with a HP notebook, I would suggest removing the HDD and connect it to a external enclosure, and them make a backup off all your data, before you try anything else.. good luck

Computer speakers buzzing


Please try moving the laptop to another location, if you have not already tried that, especially if you have any other electromagnetic device nearby (like a transformer, motorized device, machinery, etc...)

Cant open attachments


That's not a problem with Vista, rather it's most likely a problem with the web server. Make sure you entered all your web server information in correctly (pop3, SMPT, etc), and make sure your mail server supports MS Outlook 2007. Just double check everything. If that doesn't work, try completely un-installing and re-installing Outlook 2007. If all fails, try downloading a 3rd party mail application and see if that works.
