This problem can be fixed for less than the cost of a docking station, that is if you can even find a docking station, the cost of the part is $10 on ebay, and all you have to do is find someone that can remove the old dc power jack and solder the new one in place, most mom and pop computer places will do it for about $40-75.

Best is to contact Acer directly since they don't sell parts seperatly, the optical drive is easy to remove for this notebook.
You can find a slide button on the lower part of your notebook that
locks the optical drive in place, if you slide this button back you'll able to slide the optical drive out, no screwdrivers needed.

My friend, no one is permitted to call you from this web site ... If you have not reported this to the police in your area, do so now! Then, keep an eye on auction and sales sites for a while for your computer ... Craigs list and e-Bay come to mind. I dont know where you live so cannot give more detailed information ... DO NOT post any more personal infomation on this web site, it is possible you will be vunerable to other issues ...

Thank you .

Your obviously having a network configuration issue. Go into Network icon, set up a network connection, make sure you have Wi-Fi and that your laptop is picking up the signal then manually set up or scan for the wifi access point, your laptop should pick up the access point and a name should appear for that wifi spot. Once that is done then you can rename your access point with your name or HOME whatever you like, its hard to explain through here.

CD/DVD drive drivers are Operating System generic drivers and need not to be installed explicitly. The CD/DVD drive drivers are installed along with the Operating System and can be reinstalled automatically at next restart, if missing.

Check in the Device Manager under the "CD/DVD drive" category if there is any device listed there and having exclamation mark. If there is any exclamation mark visible beside the CD/DVD drive name then right click on it and restart the Computer.

Restarting the Computer will reinstall the CD/DVD drive driver thus causing it to work normally.

Hello: On some laptops you have to hold the power button down for less then half a sec for it to come on. Also the button itself may be defective check Acer's web site and see if there is a technical bulletin relating to this issue.

Please leave message..THKX

When and if it's running, run 'dxdiag' to see if windows reports any sound and video conflicts. It could be the graphic card; as i think(correct me if i'm wrong) that this model has seperate dedicated graphics, other than being on board. I'm assuming all drivers are ok and none of the vga or dvi ports give you any video either. Although the graphics are independent, it's not like a desktop pc graphics agp card, they are; as far as i know integrated in the motherboard, so the board may be the but of your problem, in which case is a replacement worth it or is it within the warranty period.

Check control panel, sounds and audio devices properties, and configure them and Skype as required.

how unsurprising..you will find the elevating it from being flush on the desk will go a long way to helping with the heating effect..too long that way, and bye bye to the uProcessor.

Cheryl, Most access points are restricted to authorized users; very few are intentionally left open for just anyone to connect to. The few that are open generally don?t require any changes on your PC as long as it is configured to automatically obtain and IP and DNS server. You simply turn on your PC and let it automatically search and connect. Usually when you open your browser the first page you see is a form requiring you to electronically agree you won?t break any laws or do evil stuff. When you are prompted for something (depending on what it?s asking for) you are probably trying to connect to an access point that is restricted. Generally places like motels or other hot spots want you to spend money with them first. Then they give you the password or connection information you need to connect. As far as connecting to an access point that is accidentally left open, to me its like keeping something you found that doesn?t belong to you. Even if you can get away with it, it?s not quite right. For those who aren?t motivated by doing what?s right at least one person in California has been arrested under the same law that prevents illegally tapping into someone else?s cable access. Hope that answers your questions, if not let us know; otherwise please don?t forget to rate this post.
