I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello.

I just bought Acer Aspire V5-573G laptop

I can access the internet with wifi, no problem, but I can't access with cable.
I upgraded to SSD today so it has been reinstalled and still doesnt work.
It seems to notice the cable but it shows a "!" and says Limited.
I'm running on Windows 8.1 64bit
I really want to try everything before sending it to repairs.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

A:LAN doesn't work on Acer Aspire V5 573G

check the LAN plug there are two small LED's both lit when LAN cable plugged in..

Also verify that the driver you installed from OEM is for windows 8.1 x64

another option is to go into device manager and remove the driver and see if MS Update has a driver for it

Evertying works fine, except the touchpad.    I googled the problem and I found that the bios should have an option Touchpad with choices Basic, Andvanced, but I can't find that option in my bios (bios version 2.21). How should I procced?   Thanks for your help. P.S.: Do you think it doesn't work because I pulled out the motherboard battery and I put it back or beucase I'm using Legacy Boot Mode?

A:Acer aspire hard drive upgrade doesn't work.

You didn't say which OS you have but with Windows 7-up you should be able to create a recovery flash drive and save a system image on a hard drive. Then use the recovery drive to restart the machine with the new disk and when asked, tell it to recover from the system image you saved. ps this works if going from a smaller to an equal or larger disk but not to a smaller one.

You're doing all the right things but instead of just tapping the mic, I suggest you try sitting beside a radio or othe rmusical output and then repeat the experiment. If you still don't hear anything afterwards, post back as to whether or not the system invites you to save the file when you close the utility. I just tried this on my old Toshiba with built-in mic and it worked for me.

Please help me to reset my laptop without removing windows

A:how factory reset acer aspire 4738

Hello persia and welcome to Seven Forums.

Most computers come with a factory installed recovery option. The recovery option is usually located in the Start menu > All Programs and provides detailed step-by-step instructions to return your machine to the exact same condition it was in when you first bought it. That means you would have to install all Windows Updates, any programs you installed, etc.

If you provide a little more info about why you want (or need) to reset your laptop other Forum members might jump in with additional suggestions. For example, are you not able to start your computer? Do you think your computer has malware? Are you not able to get an internet connection? Are you receiving any errors? Did you recently install some software or program that has messed up your computer?

Here are a few things for you to consider:
1. Did you create recovery CDs when you bought the Acer? If not you may be able to get them directly from the manufacturer. (This is the US Acer Store so you may have to go to the store that services your country if you're not in the US.)
eRecovery Media | Acer
2. Do you think a System Restore would help your situation? This tutorial explains more:
System Restore
3. You might find that a Repair Install will help you. If successful it will preserve your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc but you would still have to reinstall all Windows Updates (probably 250+ updates which could take several hours.)

Since the external works, it looks like you're ready for a new keyboard, but to be sure try the onscreen one; Accessories>System Tools>Accessibility>On Screen Keyboard. Also please don't post in bold caps. It's considered shouting. Also use the built in font as your post is quite large. Since your OS is Windows 7 and not 9X, I'm moving the thread there.

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

I've had this problem for quite a while now, and it's starting to drive me crazy!
 
My bluetooth devices can't connect to my laptop because it appears as though they can't find it at all. The device (bluetooth speakers) was already added and used to work with my laptop and it still works with my phone or other computers without any trouble, but my laptop's bluetooth just isn't working. I can't delete it from my added devices to try and re-add it. 
 
Worst of all: I can't open Bluetooth settings at all! Not using Control Panel, not using the bluetooth icon, not using search, just not at all. I click it and nothing happens. 
So, I've tried to look it up in Services.msc to see if it might be disabled, but it says it should be running. In msconfig, it says the Bluetooth service is stopped, however. 
 
Either way, I'd love to use my bluetooth devices with my laptop again, so if anyone knows how to fix this, that would be awesome!

A:Bluetooth doesn't work

Go back to Services and right click on the Bluetooth support service and double click on it.
 
When the Bluetooth support service properties open look to see what the startup type is, then click on Start in the the Service status.

Now it doesn't even work.Tried installing drivers for the same from hp but they are for win8 which didn't even worked when i was on win8.Main problem: Wifi and bluetooth both turns on but wifi doesn't connect to any of the network and my home's wifi network doesn't even show up in the list.

I changed it to a Intel Wireless AC 3160- the physical change went quick and without problems and while the adapter is basically working now the problem I'm facing now is that the F8-hotkey function to de-/activate the Wifi and Bluetooth is no longer working. When I press the hotkey button all the different hotkey combinations show up on the upper part of the screen, but now there's only F1-F7 and F9, F8 just went missing. Does anyone have any idea how to get it back?

I have this exact issue:

A Bluetooth device stops working, and you receive error code 43 together with event 17 after you resume a computer that is running Windows 7 from sleep

It used to happen sometimes on Win 7 32 bit, I've now changed to Win 7 64 bit and I can replicate it everytime I put the machine in and out of sleep.

The only way to fix is to use a different USB mouse to go into Device Manager and disable/re-enable the bluetooth device.

The reason for my post is that I requested the hotfix, yet upon trying to install it, I get a message telling me that it's not applicable for my PC?

Win 7 64 bit Home Premium, SP1, with all available Windows updates installed.

Any further ideas?

Hi all, I need some help with my new Helix (3698-6CG) I've been using this machine for almost a month and bluetooth never even showed up in Windows. With all the drivers installed, BIOS updated to latest version, Bluetooth is not working, neither showed up ever in Device Manager. Bluetooth is enabled in BIOS and the Bluetooth service also in Windows Services but no change. Disabling and re-enabling it in BIOS (with several restarts) was also no success.  I tried Broadcom's official driver, too but the driver couldn't even detect my bluetooth device. Recently I upgraded to Windows 10 to see if it solves the problem but still no change. I installed the official Lenovo Bluetooth driver. The installation was quick and succesful but still no bluetooth after all. I think I tried every possible solution but there is still no Bluetooth in Windows Device Manager.What could I possibly do now? Thank you in advance!

I've had the exact same problem with my 3701-33M. Sent in to Lenovo and it turns out the bluetooth device was missing. Pulled out another brand new one I had on hand, same thing, sent in, no bluetooth card physically installed. The build sheets for these device serial numbers show an asterisk next to the bluetooth device saying "or equivalent". Received my replacement unit under warranty and guess what? Also has no bluetooth. Seems like a full manufacturing batch went out without the cards even being installed. Pretty dodgy QC on these Helixes unfortunately.

I'm asking for my sister. She purchased an Acer Aspire 5516 a couple of days ago and her webcam is not working from the start. She called Acer tech support (very little help) and they directed her to their website where she could download the driver for the webcam. After installing the driver she restarted the laptop and when she tried to open the webcam, she gets a pop-up that says, "Camera not found".

Acer Aspire 5516-5474 (2009)
MS Vista Home Basic
Suyin Camera Driver 5.0.1.1

Please help. Thanks!

Hello,I bought a V5-591G-70S6 about 6 months ago and i have touchpad problem about 5 months.So, the touchpad itself and its buttons don't work completely.I am not sure but maybe this problem happend after updated the Chipset Driver to version 10.1.1.13.Also i have a critical update which i couldn't install: "Update Firmware v1.17 to improve touchpad performance". it's notable that I can't even find my touchpad in the Device Manager. Pictures:-  Thanks.

Try reinstalling the chipset driver, and then installing the touchpad driver.Driver: http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

I'm asking this question so i can answer it! I looked all over the net for this answer. i even ran diagnostics loaded a new driver. On and on...nothing worked. Well here is your answer:F
Look at your F keys. normally its the F7 key that controls your mouse. Hold down your Fn key and press F7 once. this will turn your mouse on and off.

Thanks fishwanda. Would just add though that different laptop models may have a different function for that key combination.

Ralink Bluetooth 4.0 is the hardware i have (i think?) It worked the first time i used it several years ago, but only provided a terrible sound quality for my headphones. After that first use, it never worked again. Last year I went to best buy to have the geek squad fix it, but that didn't work either. Earlier today, i decided to try downloading updated drivers to get it to work. After spending about 2 hours bumbling around the internet and downloading 3 different drivers, the bluetooth switch in the "wireless" settings screen got annoyed with me and decided to leave completely. Can someone help me finally get it to function? I'm willing to try just about anything at this point. Note: If you need more information than what i've posted below, you'll have to tell me how to get it. I'm not a computer geek to any extent. The 3 drivers i installed:sp65805.exesp63076.exesp63019.exeall of which i got from the official HP support website for my specific computer. After downloading the third one, the bluetooth switch disappeared. Windows 8.0HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15-n088ca Notebook PCModel #:F0Q62UARSerial #:6CI3493NHB Underneath the wifi switch, there should be a bluetooth switch. It was there before i started messing with things. I haven't a clue what i should do to get it to work.

Hi, Your machine is an  HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15-n088ca Notebook :      http://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c03940371 No available information for Bluetooh on the HP Partstore   http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=F0Q62UAR But I believe it uses Ralink Bluetooth. Please try Ralink Bluetooth Software Driver for Windows 8:    http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp63001-63500/sp63019.exe Regards.
