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

Transfered files from Old PC but cant get intomy yahoo EM


you need to reinstall the programs, not just transfer them. Using a web browser will not be a problem as the web age remains the same, but using a mail program, you need to change the internal settings to what they were before.

I want to transfer my files from pc to mobile via bluetooth


If you want to transfer files from pc to the mobile device. Make sure the pc has a bluetooth turn on. Most of the laptops have a built in bluetooh , but for desktop computers you need to purchase a bluetooth adapter.
Once you have the bluetooh turn ON on your computer. Turn on the bluetooh on your mobile device.

From your computer. Right click on the file that you want to transfer and select send to bluetooth. Click on search for bluetooth device and then select the name of your cellphone ( or name you assigned for the bluetooth on your cellphone)Once you click the name, just go next . You will get a message saying accept bluetooh file on your cellphone, just accept the file and your done.

How to transfer information from a computer that has a virus to a brand new computer


Transfer all the information you want in your new computer into a flash drive or an external hard drive.

Connect it to the new computer and right click on the drive where you can find an option to scan the drive for viruses. Choose that option and once the scan is done if there are any viruses then delete the files and transfer the rest into the system

How do i connect an external hard drive to my LG LCD Tv?


The LG's will support an external USB hard drive, but it seems the USB support was intended for thumb drives, so yuo need to do the following to get it working:
  1. the drive must be formatted FAT32 (like thumbdrives)
  2. keep the file names short
  3. keep the directory structure simple and as flat as possible
I have a 60GB laptop drive in a USB 2.0 enclosure drive working really nicely with good transfer rates. It takes it's power from the USB socket and is working fine.

Hope this helps.

Actally i wanted to know how server works & data is transferred


in general & simple terms, a server, when used as a file storage device, works by creating a shared drive or directory on the server, and giving proper read and write permissions to the desired users. From there, the files are transferred via network connections (wireless, ethernet, etc.) Hope this helps

I've purchased a belkin usb 2.0 file transfer cable for transferring old files from a pc with windows 98 to a new laptop with vista, the transfer cable is not picking up the two computers on the old screen...


Hi
Im not sure you can transfer over a USB cable with different OS and filesystems. easiast way is to buy a usb harddrive or usbstick copy data to that. or if the old computer have a networkcard to transfer over a crossover cable or true a network Hub/switch..
