How to fix a USB port that does not work on a laptop
Funny, got this same with my old Acer V5 531. Recently bought it for parts, but then decided to check it out. Seems like one of the ports has had something shoved forcefully in, and probably in a wrong angle. It had bent one of the contact fingers inside the motherboard connector, and despite my tries it stayed dead. So, in my case there are two possibilities to have functional USB. I'll have to either solder the old connector out of the board and replace it with a functional one. Or, I could buy a new/second hand motherboard. The first choice will not guarantee a functional result as I don't know if something else has burned on the mobo during the suspected short. Luckily enough, fifteen minutes ago someone put up an ad for a used identical motherboard on a local second hand marketplace for 10€ so I'll probably go for it :)
Frisby FS2020 BT speakers with active sub dips audio during the first second of playback
well you can test those BT on other things
TV , PC, AVR
if it faill on all then it is a bad amp/PSU
or one input is bad, (all or just one on speaker jacks.
if the PSU in it bad, (as is weak) the sound volume may surge (dip:) down.
not told how connected that PC< at all.
AUX 1, aux2 Toslink fiber.
or BTooth ??
toslink is best (no 60Hz hum ever)
test this powered speaker system on TV , AVR or other PC of any kind.
to add Toslink buy USB DAC, dongle to USB.
tests are simple try it on other things, and all inputs to speaker tried.

Acer travelMate 4502lmi BOOTMGR is missing
Go to the BIOS settings, ensure the first boot drive is your bootable drive, usually drive C. If it isn't, that is why it won't boot. If it is, insert your Windows disc and perform a repair.
How do i run a file on my Acer chromebook 315
No file told,no "downloader updater", app name or version toldlet me guess you found and APP (run exe) on the web (www)and want to load it on to Chrome OS?what are you trying to do?you said DVD there is no DVD drive on this thin PC. zeroso to read a DVD you must buy and externa USB l DVD reader.the Chromebook runs Chrome OS, not windows !so you run non windows apps."Chrome OS cannot natively run Windows executable's, as it is a Linux based system, and is pretty well locked down."with some limited exceptions. (wine /crossover)tell what end goal is, my wild wild guess is you bought a new external USB connected DVD drive and it does not work and forgot to ask seller if it runs on Chrome OS? oops. oops I bet it does not run on Chrome, as most do notbut non driver maker or model told, so ask them firstyour PC has no DVD drive ! so what do you have,cheers and good luck.

How can I get a LG rewritable disk hooked to my computer
we can not guess disks NOR DRIVES, not told
DVD_RW disks? or CD-RW diskS
learn that there are lots of ways to fail on any ODD ,optical disk drive or disks.
let me guess ,
you burned RW disks on a ODD that does that, (vast MODELS)
and the disk works here, reads OK fully. then
then pulled the disk out and went to a 2nd PC, ODD.
and found out it fails due to:
- PC is CD only,
- PC has dvd rom only feature and dvd rw fails sure it will.
- PC drive is not rated for DVD-RW at all. or any RW of any kind.
- no PC told, no PC ODD model told..so... impossible to help much.
now how to cheat told next , how to see what the drive can do
with out removing the ODD drive fully and reading the top label.
some desktops , not all, the ODD tray front tells what it can do.
but most OEM makers do not do that.(pc brands)
the maGIC APP CALLED HWINFO32 (FREE)
RUN IT AND SEE THE DRIVE AND IT TELLS YOU ALL MEDIA IT SUPPORTS. now you know.
PORTABLE IS BEST
Winlocker/Yosafe - Hard drive from old Acer now in external case.
if you had , HDD encryption enabled and old PC is dead
there is no access, now. that is the #1 goal of using encryption so others can not steal your data, A#1 GOAL
if drive is good it can be erased, but no hdd label presented
so I can look at makers site for the methods
winlocker is and app on ACER PC, and is now gone.
so there is no fix to get data.
why not ask winlocker , for help, they may have fix if you know the Password but that is only 1/2 the cure, the key is lost. (in ACER)
or ask here
OMG that is you there asking the same thing, so..... (GRIN)
that is right it is Illegalll to ask for PW hacks at most OEM sites.
even laws to not allow that.
ask at winlocker. (i guess is Acer owned)
encryption tools are a double edged sword
one edge stops the thief.
the other stops you.
see? that means stay backed up or not use winlocker.
or fix the bad dead ACER first.
then turn off winlocker
there is your best answer fix the Acer.

My Acer X1110 switches off as soon as blue light comes on?
it needs service, and service manuals are hard to find on anything by the likes of ACER.
this projector worked for 12 long years, did you own it 12 or bought a bad projector, no history told as I can buy dead projectors all day long. and hard nut problems even hacking done.
Acer X1110 data projector Standard throw projector..
did you know most projectors have serious grade protective devices inside??? (tamper and overheating are 2)
did you read owners manual page 32 yet, errors.
there are 4 LED, and all 4 matter, projector turned (ON) (not one =1)
also in pairs glowing and also if blinking or not, so read page 32
it tells all that.
my guess is overheat failures, even cold, due fan slow or packed in lint after 12 years of use and no service done,.
some have dust filtler
a shop first cleans is out first, and check fan RPM with and LED tachometer.
this is all SOP.
