What dose the icons mean on front panel what is the little square hole for next to the mike connection


hello, it is most likely a firewire connection.
FireWire, originally created by Apple and later standardized as IEEE-1394, actually preceded USB and had similar goals. The difference is that IEEE-1394 was originally intended for devices working with lots more data -- things like camcorders, DVD players and digital audio equipment. IEEE-1394 and USB share a number of characteristics and differ in some important ways. Here's a summary:
  • Like USB, IEEE-1394 is a serial bus that uses twisted-pair wiring to move data around.
  • However, while USB is limited to 12 megabits per second, IEEE-1394 currently handles up to 400 megabits per second.
  • USB can handle 127 devices per bus, while IEEE-1394 handles 63.
  • Both USB and IEEE-1394 support the concept of a isochronous device -- a device that needs a certain amount of bandwidth for streaming data. This mode is perfect for streaming audio and video data.
  • Both USB and IEEE-1394 allow you to plug and unplug devices at any time.
hope this helps,

regards

Optical Drive Device Locked Acer e lock activated. I cannot use my Cd drive.


Acer eLock Management
Acer eLock Management is a security utility that allows you to lock your removable data, optical and floppy
drives to ensure that data cannot be stolen while your notebook is unattended.

Removable data devices - includes USB disk drives, USB pen drives, USB flash drives, USB MP3 drives,
USB memory card readers, IEEE 1394 disk drives and any other removable disk drives that can be
mounted as a file system when plugged into the system.

Optical drive devices - includes any kind of CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives.
�� Floppy disk drives - 3.5-inch disks only.
�� Interfaces - includes serial ports, parallel port, infrared (IR), and Bluetooth.
To activate Acer eLock Management, a password must be set first. Once set, you can apply locks to any of the
devices. Lock(s) will immediately be set without any reboot necessary, and will remain locked after rebooting,
until unlocked.

You can try this:

You can reset the system to its default settings (all devices unlocked) by removing the password (leave the password fields blank when changing the password).

You also may be able to simply uninstall the e-lock software in add remove programs.

Is there an icon in your system tray that may allow you to disable e-lock?

To set your Region back to 1:
  • Right click my computer, then properties.
  • click on hardware, then "Device Manager".
Here, click the plus sign next to "DVD/CD-ROM Drives"

Please advise me i have recently purchased an acer Aspire Series Part No. 12200.009 personal computer problem is no sound comes out the unit ---unless i have headfones...


sounds like the cd is not there..open up control panel(behind start button) and find the audio devices or sound settings.

of course, it could be that the sound volume control is muted..look for it in bottom right tray(at bottom of screen) double click on it, and see if it's on mute.

as to the CD/DVD..control panel, system device manager..see if it's listed and has no little marks alongside it.
