Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Toggle icons not appearing

My toggle button no longer shows three icons-it only shows the computer icon. It previously showed a computer icon, a TV icon, and a combined TV/computer icon. I cannot select to send visual to the TV. Where did the other two icons go? Did I erase these somehow?

My ipod does nothing just shows a sad face


The "sad" iPod icon usually indicated that the iPod is having trouble connecting with a computer. This is, in most cases, not a serious issue and can be resolved with a few easy procedures. In most cases the data on the iPod is intact, even if the sad icon was displayed.

Verify the iPod has a charge. If in doubt, allow it to charge for 30 to 60 minutes. Do not remove charging cable. Toggle the Hold switch to the Hold position and back. Then press both the center (Select) button and the Menu (upper part of wheel) for up to 10 seconds. Release the Select and Menu buttons when the Apple logo appears, and quickly simultaneously press the Select and Play/Pause (bottom of the wheel) button. Switch from the electrical plug to a computer connection (if necessary) when the Disk Mode screen appears. The screen should change to the normal "Do Not Disconnect" update screen. Contact Apple about finding a repair service if the iPod will not go into Disk Mode.

How to retreve my wifi


Enable the wireless network card on the laptop.


Some laptops use a physical switch on the front or side of the computer to enable and disable the wireless card.


Most newer laptops use a software switch that can be toggled with a couple of keys on the keyboard.


The most common software switch toggle is by pressing the "Fn" key and "F2" at the same times.


Click the wireless icon by the clock in the lower-right corner.

Click on an available wireless hotspot.


Stronger signals are represented with more and longer bars.


Click the "Connect" button.


Enter a password, if required.


Click on Home, Work or Public when the dialog box appears.


Each of these three options represents different security levels.


When connecting to a public Wi-Fi hotspot, always select "Public."


Hope this helps.

How could you know if wireless switch is on


Normally somewhere on the laptop there will be a light that emits to show that the wireless is on.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.



On some laptops there might be a button that you press above the keyboard or on the sides that turn the wireless on or off.

Blank pale blue screen only see cursor? cant access anything


Okay. Easiest possible fix would be to download Tinkertool. On the Finder part, there's a button that says Disable Desktop Features. Toggle this on, reset Finder, and then off, reset Finder again. This may very well reset your icons so that they now appear. Do all of this from within the administrator account, if you can.

Ipod always on hold


My 2 GB nano shows the lock icon no matter how many times I toggle the hold switch on and off and press the Menu/Select buttons. I've recharged and restored it any number of times with no luck. Computer recognizes it when I plug it in but once I unplug it, none of the buttons work. When it's plugged in and fully updated, it shows the languages menu. I'll be eternally grateful to anyone who can offer any assistance!
