Acer Aspire - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


There is a plastic 'bar" just above the top right of your keyboard. The 4th white symbol in from the right is supposed to be a satellite, that is the wireless button.
Put your finger on top of the icon and hold it there for a couple of seconds, when you remove your finger your wireless reciever will be activated and you will see a green message at the bottom of your screen "Wireless LAN Enabled".

u mean to say, u r using wireless for internet access right.
Well if u r using XP, and if u r having some trouble in accessing internet, then there might some problem with the components of wireless card. so if u want to fix them, u can fix them with a simple trick.
Go to My Computer's Properties
Go to device manager,
open the tab named NETWORK ADAPTER.
u'll see ur wireless adapter listed. select it & select Uninstall.
Dont worry, just continue reading.
when u click on uninstall, u'll be asked whether u r sure to remove the device from ur computer, meanwhile u'll be given a marking space named UNINSTALL THE DRIVER FOR THIS HARDWARE.
Dont remove the driver, simply uninstall the wireless adapter.
Now its removed.
Now restart ur system, after it starts ur computer shows a ballon named, NEW HARDWARE FOUND and it will automatically install ur wireless adapter,
So ur wireless adapter is fixed by now.


and if u r using Vista, its quite easy there.
go to NETWORK & SHARING CENTRE
go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS u'll find 2 connections.
one will be named as Wireless something.
ENABLE it & click DIAGONISIS
after its completed, select RESET ADAPTER
Its done.

Hope it worked u out.
Thanks..

Hello, I am sending a link to the driver page for you. Enter the serial number and follow the prompts to download an updated driver. This is likely a driver issue. I would try this before going back to factory defaults and start all over again. Download Drivers and Manuals Acer Official Site

If you haven't installed or not aware of any application installed recently on your laptop then--
your OS has been loaded with lots of unwanted or overloaded stuff;
1) First try to clean all junk files
2) Clean Cache
3) Free Up some space from your OS drive (most system it is C:\)
4) Uninstall unwanted programs
5) look into task-manager for his program usage
6) Check your Antivirus software

Sounds like the GPU has problems, it is of that age. Replace the GPU and that should fix the motherboard problem.

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro installed on your PC.
  • Your PC fails to boot into Windows and launches Automatic Repair to attempt to repair Windows.
  • Automatic Repair is unable to repair your PC and you select "Advanced options".
  • After selecting "Troubleshoot", you choose to either "Refresh your PC" or "Reset your PC".

In this scenario, recovery may fail and you are returned back to the main WinRE screen.

Cause

This issue may occur if the System or Software registry hives have become damaged or corrupted.

Resolution

To attempt to resolve this issue, follow the steps below.

NOTE: Following these steps should only be used if you are attempting to use the "Refresh your PC" or "Reset your PC" options in Windows RE because your system is in a non-bootable state.
  1. After Automatic Repair fails to repair your PC, select "Advanced options" and then "Troubleshoot".
  2. Select "Advanced options" and then select "Command Prompt".
  3. If prompted, enter in the password for the user name.
  4. At the Command Prompt, go to the \windows\system32\config folder by typing the following command: cd %windir%\system32\config.
  5. Rename the System and Software registry hives to System.001 and Software.001 by using the following commands:
    ren system system.001ren software software.001

    NOTE: Renaming the Software hive will not allow you to use the "Refresh your PC" option. If you want to use the "Refresh your PC" option, only rename the System hive. If the Software hive is also corrupt, you may not be able to use the "Refresh your PC" option.
  6. Type "exit" without the quotes to exit the Command Prompt and reboot the PC back to the Automatic Repair screen.
  7. After selecting "Advanced options" and then "Troubleshoot", select either "Refresh your PC" or "Reset your PC".

More Information

Using the "Reset your PC" option will remove all of the files on your hard drive and resets your PC back to the version of Windows 8 that was preinstalled by the OEM on your PC. All new applications that were installed on your PC after you purchased it will need to be reinstalled.
