i got an acer Aspire 4720z. it came w/ vista in english.. i follow all the rules to install XP.. i do it right. but on the Device Manager still are some unknow device that i don't know how to solve that.
i install xp service pack 3. (with nLite helps)
also the wifi dosen't work (i think the device is not installed)
if it's possible to upgrade my laptop's graphics, because I'm attempting to play a few games on it, and it runs them sooo slow. I don't think the Processor or RAM are an issue, but surely the GFX card is. Another thought I had was maybe upgrading my RAM to 2 GB, which could possibly give it a boost because I think my vid card draws some memory from the system?
Did a restore with factory restore disks it doesn't install broadcom BCM94312mcg wireless drivers. when i try to install I get "windows found drivers but encountered an error code 10 have tried everything I know
I Formatted my laptop and installed windows XP (was a successful install) But my problem is....none of my hardware is installed. The WNet doesn't work, Vid Card isn't installed, nor is the Sound Card, and any other hardware that I'm forgetting that also needs to be installed (nothing is installed). I don't have the discs to install them. Can I get the installs for all these online somewhere and burn them to a disc and install on laptop?
I have an Acer Aspire 4720z notebook and decided to hook it up to my tv. So I got my 7-pin to composite adapter which came with my video card for my desktop and plugged it in to give it a shot to see if it would work and no go, it just won't detect being connected to the tv. I read the manual and searched online to see if this perticular notebook allowed for s-video to composite or if Acer made one for it themselves, again no go. So I was wondering if anyone has this notebook, or the 4710 or 4720 which I think are identical hardware wise, are able to connect one to it and actually get it working?
it uses a mobile intel 965 express graphics chipset.
I have an Acer Aspire 4720Z. Since long I had been using XP. Recently it was formatted and Windows 7 was installed. But after this upgradation, the WLAN is not working. Have banged my head with drivers and all.
Device manager is showing Microsoft Virtual Wi-Fi miniport adapter (although with XP it simply showed by the name of WLAN adapter as far as I remember). And checking it's properties it says that the device is working properly. When Intel Wi-Fi Technology is tried to get started, it says that 'A supported intel wireless network adapter not found'.
I have an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop with 320gb hd space .. 8600m gs video card ... 4gb ram... Vista 32-bit oem.. etc.
The problem is that I've just accidentaly deleted my whole OS. I booted with my Vista 64-bit disc so I could format one of my drives, but I stupidly formatted the wrong one. (the one with my OS)
So now I just installed Vista 64-bit on it, so I could at least do something with my laptop (watch dvds etc.), but I can't get the internet to work anymore because of all the important stuff that got deleted.
What I was using was some public WLAN.
Now it complains that a network adapter doesn't exist.. or something like that. I don't even know what that is.
Is there any way I can fix this myself? I just need to get my internet to work again.
I bought an Acer Aspire 5520 few years ago. It has a partition with Windows Vista installed on that. Unfortunately that partition is deleted completely so I can not recover my laptop to its factory setting.
Is there anyway that I can install that original windows Vista again? I looked behind my laptop and there is a label with a product key. Is that useful?
I just bought a Acer 4720z and I connected it to my wireless router the problem I am having is that the computer keeps disconnecting from internet every few mins and then reconnect. I called acer and they are useless. The computer has Vista on it and my wireless router is a actiontec from verizon.
I did some searching and couldn't find the cause for my 4720Z's wifi card just disappearing about twice a day!
I'm still running Vista Premium but I have something deleting the Wifi adapter from Device Hardware list about, at least once per day, and not at the same time each day.
I don't know if billy is just throwing a tantrum or which software / hardware (could be Acer installed stuff for either or both!) As mr gates doesn't like other people installing anything but what he sales!
So I start out in Safe Mode, and my audio doesn't work, but my wifi card can be used and doesn't go POOF!
I flip a coin on what I'm going to live without, audio or wifi!
The 4720Z is 3mos old and has been doing the magic trick with the wifi card ever since the 2nd or 3 wk, and I don't know how to find the conflict?
I accidentally (don't ask how) deleted a folder containing 180 GB of data from my 8920 (with 640gb hdd), and foolishly emptied the recycle bin after that. The data was in drive d: please give me some help guys..i have no idea how to recover my life which is my-180gb folder. Honestly, this is the most f-up error that ever happened to me
I got myself a new laptop but it became french not english(didn't get to decide, wasn't there then), but I got the store i bought it from to put it into english. The problem is that when it was french there were more programs like gridvista, eye webcam etc. Now that it's english there none of those programs. So i'm wondering if I should do the eRecovery management thing, will it stay in english with the programs like the french one? or should i ask for recovery disks from acer and tell them my problem?... it's a acer 5920g/5920-6642 laptop...says both on my laptop.
I deleted my 3 printers last night thought I was only deleting 1 and then I was going to reinstall the same printer because it didn't work anymore for some unknown reason so when I went to delete it erased all of them, now I can't find it on the home network at all in Mac but I find it in Vista , I have a problem I'm somewhat new to this mac stuff but I do know how to look for the printers but when it searched it didn't come up with any printer
