Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Cannot watch video on Acer 5100

\015 I find that I cannot play videos on my Acer 5100. It is as if the system cannot cope, but I have a 2G processor and 1G RAM. Problem is wether on-line or on local hard drive. Any suggestions very welcome.\015\012Thanks\015

Answers :

Hi there
There are a few applications that you need to have installed on the PC for you to watch videos on line or from hdd.

first you will need adobe flash 10, download it and install it from here:


also download and install java from here:


Now thats the on-line software done, now you need "codecs", download and install these to allow you to watch the latest DIVX, XVID video files etc


and codec 8.3 here:


Install all of the above and restart your pc, then try to watch your media on the net and in a media player, the problem should now be resolved.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
