Wireless card


Not according to specs - its has wireless 802.11b/g installed. If wireless is not enabled, and there is no separate wireless button, check the function keys and look at the blue legends hat are on them. One of them may look like a transmitting antenna. To activate the key, press and hold the "Fn" key while pressing the function key with the legend to see if that activates the wireless. If so, pressing it again will deactivate it.

Do i need a pc card for my wireless connection i have an acer 5050


Hi,

No the laptop has an in-built wireless card so there's no need for an add-on.
The switch is a slide switch which is at the very front of the laptop on the left hand side of the headphone and microphone jack.
When you slide the switch a LED will come on.


Regards.

My acer aspire 5050 dosent start up after you shut it down and boot it up? Help me!!!


Unplug the power supply, remove the battery then press the power button 10x or more holding each press for about 10secs. Insert the battery, plug the power supply and turn it on. If it doesn't, repeat the steps. This should remove the static electricity stuck in the mainboard.

If it turns-on, set your laptop to hybernate when you close the lid so you don't need to shutdown it anymore. If it runs out of power while in hybernation, it should start again.

I want to overclock my acer aspire 5050 this the review: * Processor: AMD Turion64 x2 TL-50 (1.6 GHz, 512 KB L2 cache total, 256 KB on each core) * RAM: 1 GB 533 MHz DDR2 RAM (2 x 512 MB) * Hard...


I have the same system too. None of the tuners such as RIVA work well w/ integrated notebook card, and u r graphics card is pretty ghetto. I could however, download POWERSTRIP and tune up a minescule 300-400 MHz but it won't let me access memory clock. More than this I could do no further overclocking.

Wireless


If a motherboard is bent against its normal proportional look, you have a motherboard problem and need to get this looked at by a professional. (In short, the motherboard is going out)

Or if you are capabable of repairing yourself search ebay for a new motherboard.
