What kind of anti-virus and anti-malware programs are you running? This sounds like you might have been infected by a trojan/virus and that one or the other or even both of your anti-virus/anti-malware programs are blocking a hijacked home page. If this is indeed the case, the antivirus and/or anti-malware programs are doing the jobs they are supposed to do. You will need to run an excellent anti-malware program such as MalwareBytes located here
and SuperAntiSpyware located here
Run those two programs after updating them of course to ascertain the status of your computer. Let the programs do the job they are intended to do, i.e. scan and remove what they find, then reboot your computer. I also suggest the use of a good FREE antivirus program called AVAST Home Free version located here
Avast has been my antivirus of choice for over 4 years now, great automatic updating and free registration for a year at a time. You will have to go to to the website to complete their registration form, but it's simple as pie and you love the fact that you did. So do at least the first two things, then come back to us with word of what you found on your system.

Power on but a blank screen? what am i not doing


If you don't get any image at all, not even the Acer screen at the start then it's a hardware defect. Simple test: connect an external monitor and try to get the image on to it. If you can then the cable that connects the scree to the motherboard is disconnected - the laptop will have to be opened, the cable checked and reseated. If you don't get any image even on it then the video chip from the motherboard has failed - the motherboard will have to be replaced and that will be expensive.

It is possible you have a malware infection that has change your network settings. Perform a virus and malware scan, then once that is completed, open a browser window. Do not worry that it won't connect to the internet, now look to the right and clip the drop down menu named"Tools". Scroll down to the bottom and click on "Internet Options". Once this is opened, click on the "Connections" tab at the top. Scroll down and choose LAN settings. When this window opens, make sure everything is unchecked except the first box that says "automatically detect settings". The most important thing is that everything in the bottom of the page that involves proxy settings is UNCHECKED. Hit apply and /or OK.

VGA MODE NOT SUPPORTED, usually will meanthat the resolution your laptop was sending to the monitor wasnt supported.

this can be fixed with it plugged in and using the laptop display. you shoudl be able to chenge display properties and apply a different resolution to each screen.


system not fully installed is an interesting one. does it do this all teh time when you reboot now? with or without the monitor connected?

I think you need to specify the gateway address in your new laptop. For that you have to know the gateway address ( i,e. the IP address of your boardband router/ adsl modem.).

First, go to your old laptop, right click on My Network Places, Right click on the wireless lan connection and select properties. Click on Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click properties.
Take a note of the Default gateway.
Now come to your new laptop, use the procedure mentioned above to open the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) Properties box. Type in the Default gateway address which you have noted earlier. Click ok twice. Now see if you can access the internet. If you can't then let me know the IP address configuration of both your old and new laptops.

I have an Acer Netbook, Aspire one series. the icon for wireless doesn't appear at the bottom of the screen for me to choose my wireless network and in setting the network centre won't open HELP


Hi there,
It sounds like you do not have the connection set up yet.
Try using the start button (bottom left hand corner of your screen)
Then click connect to, then click show all connections which will open the network connections panel.
Then you can configure the wireless setting (If you have one) if not, then try creating a new connection and follow the wizard, Hope this helps you, Chris

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5920G. My problem is when the laptop is switched on it sounds like it's booting but the screen stays blank? Have you any idea what can cause this? Regards, Dan Pook...


Hello
I think your graphics card or screen is broken on your Acer Aspire 5920G, one thing you can test is to connect at external monitor to your laptop. If you dont get any picture then its your graphic card broken, if you get picture it is your screen. also try to adjust the screen light.
