Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

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?

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.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth 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 togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless.

How do i unlock the pointer pad on my easynote


It sounds like your touchpad has been toggled to off. You need to toggle it on.

Click Start/Control Panel and look for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sure you don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on the button that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents the touchpad.

Turn on wireless radio


Look on both sides and in front of the laptop for the wireless switch. Once you turn the switch on you can also toggle the wireless by keystrokes. Normally you can Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion 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. It might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). When you toggle the wireless on or off normally the display might show Wireless On or Wireless Off.

The software you are using to run the wireless can also turn the wireless radio on or off, so if all the above steps don't remedy the situation, then look into the software that runs the wireless.
Most times the software can be found at the bottom right near the time.

I have a toshiba satellite p 775D pc. it says the hardware radio switch is off. how do i turn it back on and where is it?


Look on both sides of the computer and in front of the computer for a switch that controls the wireless.

Once you turn it on your wireless should come back. Also once you have the switch turned on there is another way to toggle the wireless on and off by hitting a set of keystrokes. If you Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left part of the keyboard, then hit the key that controls the wireless (F1 thru F12) you can toggle the wireless off and on. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have the wireless icon )))) signal on it or it might have a tower with a the wireless icon )))) signal. Once you Press and Hold the FN key, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key to toggle the wireless a message will probably appear on your screen that says Wireless On or Wireless Off.

Toshiba satellite wifi not working


Hello
You might have physically switched on the adapter, but in Windows it is still disabled.

In Windows XP, click the start button, look for CONNECT TO (don't go in the all programs menu), and click SHOW all connections. A window opens showing all the connections available. If the wireless connection icon displays a red X crossing it, it is disabled.

To reenable it,

Point the mouse cursor to the wireless connection and right click mouse button. Click enable or repair.

One question though. If your computer is toshiba, you must have installed the configFree software that came with it.

If so, look to the left right of the task bar and click the ConfigFree Icon. Choose Connectivity doctor. It will diagnose your connections. If one is disabled or has a problem, a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark ! will appear on the connection.

Use the device setting thumbnail, select your WIFI adapter . A button at the right bottom side, will show either Enable (if your adapter is disabled), or disable i(f adapter is enabled). With that button, you can toggle between enable and disable. After that click the close button, and hopefully you will be able to surf the web.


Hope it helps

Can no longer connect laptop to television


Hi there Susie
,
Assuming your running XP....

Go to Start
go to control panel
then display
settings
=============================================
there should be two screens visible
click on screen 2 and then IDENTIFY
the video card should then put a Number 1 or 2 on the screen if its connected and turned on,
If there is only one screen visible in the display SETTINGS
then you will have to uninstall the device and reinstall it.

===========================================
How to Uninstall....

Go to start
Right click on My Compter,
Properties
Hardware
Device Manager
Right click on Display adapters
Uninstall
Reboot to save settings when done and restart

On start up the Operating System should auto recognise the device and reinstall it,
It will tell you when its installed and ready for use ,
or,
give you a device install failure message
Try again.

Once this is done the device should be up and laughing again.

As far as how did it happen???
Did you do any device updates or software installs lately?

Sometimes default settings of different softwares conflict with each other and the only way to sort them out is turn them off and start again.

I hope this helps,If you need any more help , please just ask
