Try to turn off automatic updates. Right-click on MyComputer icon, select properties, Click on Automatic Updates, turn off automatic updates. Maybe it's trying to download updates automatically and this will slow down the computer. If that is the problem, you have to make sure you get all your updates manually first and then change back settings to automatically download updates afterwards. Please let me know if this still doesn't help.

Well u can try to format the drive and load a fresh copy of the operating system. When its using short term memory to dump its boot errors then its never a good sign. Viruses cause this most often but a bad sector on the hard drive itself will also do this. If after you format the drive and still it does this then its time for a new hard drive.

Press F8 during boot this will take you to boot options select "Last Known Good Configuration" or select Safe Mode to perform a system repair.
To repair your system follow the steps below
1. Click Start and open Run on the Start menu.
2. Type (or copy and paste) C:\WINDOWS\system32\restore\rstrui.exe in the Run box.
3. This will open System Restore now select the first option (restore my computer to an earlier time) and click next.
4. Select a date when your network last worked and complete restoration.
Do not worry about selecting the wrong date you can always undo any restore within system restore you will select undo last restore.

Try right-clicking on My Computer, go to Manage, then go into Device Manager. Inside Device Manager's list, do you see any devices with a yellow exclamation point? If not, expand the "Network adapters" section and see what's listed. It's possible that there is no wireless adapter in that laptop (unless you're sure there is one). Another possibility is that the wireless adapter is there, but not functional, faulty, or just plain broken. If the device is there and working, it should show up in Device Manager as an installed device; if it's there, but not working, it'll show up with an exclamation point. If it's not in the list at all, it's probably broken or the laptop doesn't have a wireless card.

Hi there
You may have hit the WiFi activate button, it should be above the keyboard on the left hand side, if it still won't connect try resetting the modem by unplugging power from it for 30 seconds and power it on again, wait a minute for the modem to reset and try connect again

Good luck and kind regards

Chances it is the lamp. Some lamps are very hard to change. Hopefully yours will be much easier. You did a very good thing changing the inverter first. As you have a 50/50 chance anyway, so now you know it wasn't that. Good luck.

The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.

First I will confirm what you've posted.

Before going to your friends house you used to connect the laptop up via the network cable. Since youve tried your laptop on your friends wireless it no longer allows you to surf the web via the wireless nore the wired connection?

To me it sounds like a possible mis-configuration between your laptop and your linksys router. Depending on what operating system you are using you need to get into your network connection settings (usually in control panel) and either set the TCP/IP to automatically obtain ip address or set it correctly.

If you have never had to configure this in the past ensure that obtain automatically is set.

I had the same problem and it was my battery - i would strongly suggest getting a new one, doesnt need to be an ACer - it could even be a generic one- just as effective.Try www.cellphoneshop.net, they sell cheap batteries.

You need to get the following wireless network information:

Wireless network name (aka SSID) you would like to join.
Security type (WEP/WPA) and the password/passphrase.

Also make sure what the router and your wireless adapter/built-in card is capable (common is Wireless B/G, the new one is N)
