There are two possible solutions for this...
check all the sides in this notebook and look for a "wifi" button or switch, (usually comes with an LED light that turns from amber to blue)
the other option is to locate the "blue" Fn key on your keyboard and at the same time press the key that contains a "blue" little tower antena giving a signal"
this should enable your wireless adapter on this machine.
hope this helps..

maybe there are problems with the drivers for the webcam try to go to its manufaturer website and find latest drivers

Acer Aspire... | Answered on Jan 13, 2010

It sounds like a driver problem. Incorrect drivers will cause the OS to crash / shutdown. Try updating your webcam drivers from the manufacturer's website for your operating system and see if the problem goes away.

you will need to reinstall the drivers for the sound card and your sound will work again. You will need to go to the manufactures web site and click on support. than enter your model number and or serial number and then click on search and should bring up a page that has a drop down pages so you can choose drivers and downloads than click on that and find the one that says sound and or multi media. aspire usually uses reltek for the sound driver.

Is the driver for the Crystal Eye WEBcam installed, enabled and working?
If not then download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP version of the drivers you that require matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

Please try to adjust the resolution first.
If no use then reinstall the graphics driver.
If then also the issue is not resolved then it might be the issue with display panel cable and you need to replace it.

Do you have IE installed. I highly recommend having more than one browser installed. try browsing with IE...if you can get online then the problem is with Firefox....

How do you connect to the Internet? Check network connections in Control panel..make sure your preferred connection profile is enabled.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Use another computer to download "combofix" from bleeping computer, run this and part of the fix is to reset the IE settings back

IE should restart after this, If not download say Firefox and get this installed and see if that will work, most cases it will and IE not, it can be bugs causeing your IE to stop working

which keys are they? do you get numbers instead of letters on certain keys?

If you do, then the numlock is turned on, press down the FN key and find the numlock button.

Or hold down the windows key and press R, then write OSK and click ok

the on screen keyboard will pop up find the numlock key from there, or try scrlock. (scroll lock)

if the numpad is not visible click on settings and turn on the unmpad, then find the numlock button and press on it, then try the keys again.

go to your control panel (from teh start menu, or round blue icon in the bottom left corner) and look for power options. you can customize power settings in there, most laptops are set to go into suspend mode after sitting for a while to save power. you can set the amount of time that it waits before suspending itself, when its plugged in you can set it to stay on all the time. there are seperate settings for when it is on battery as well.

Goto control panel, system , hardware , device manager, in the list check for a exclamation mark on the sound card drivers, if so right click on it and uninstall., hope this helps in some way.

Press Fn key + F5 once or twice. Usually Fn+F5 will toggle you between 3 options: internal LCD - Both internal & external - Enternal only. Wait a moment after changing the mode, as the monitor has to detect the signal and react to it.
Once you are on external only, you can change the screen resolution to better suit the external monitor's capabilities.
With the laptop and monitor active at the same time, both will operate at the same resolution.

i have the same problem...same laptop too..still looking the solutions

Acer Aspire... | Answered on Nov 20, 2009

The problem is actually due to the tight webcam cabling
It runs under the keyboard up to the LCD
To resolve it open up the front panel and make the Cable less taut and tighten all connections

I'm having a similar problem except my screen always shows only black. If you can get your image to appear sometimes it sounds like you may have a short in the hardware connecting your camera. I think you should contact ACER support and let them know you have a suspected hardware problem. I've tried uninstalled (right click my computer --> properites--> device manger-->imaging devices --> right click on webcam and select uninstall. The camera will re-install automatically when you reboot or have device manager scan for new hardware. You can also go to the acer website downloads section and make sure you have the latest webcam driver.
