Yes, you would have to enable the IR port in the boot setup screens.

When booting the laptop, press F2 or F10 or DEL, there is usually a hint in the top right of your display just as its starting up.

Once you enter the setup screens look for your IR port and toggle it to enabled.

Let me know if that doesn't work as you may need to load the drivers for it in Windows.
Go to this PDF file
and then scroll down until you see this entry below:
Consumer Infrared Driver Ver. 7.1.64.1010
Click on the blue entry below it to download the zip file. Once you have downloaded it move it to a unique folder such as:
c:\software\acer\ir driver\
Now, double click on the zip file to unpack it. Click on the folders until you reach the readme.txt file and open that for instructions.

Contact me using the comment box below to ask any questions that may come up. Once you have completed this and have your IR working then, and only then rate this as Fixed.

Regards,
Worldvet

How do i transfer files from my computer to my mobile phone


Hi
It is very simple,just try to locate the bluetooth icon on your computer if it has it,then you would have to put on the bluetooth of your phone and allow the bluetooth of the computer to search for that of the phone.Then you can now transfer your files.
If your computer or phone does not have bluetooth you could get a USB cable that can connect both together then you can now send your files with the cable.
GOODLUCK
