Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop ?

Wi-Fi and Windows Vista Upgrade problems

\015 I purchased an in-the-box laptop from someone. At first, I had an internet connection without a wireless router, then I lost it. I tried to get it back but think I inadvertantly changes some settings. I tried to fix this problem with the upgrade disk and now i have lost everything.. programs... internet connection..my desktop, etc. How can I get it back and can I get the wireless to work again or was that just a fluke?\015

Answers :

Concening the wireless connection....if you dont have a router of your own then you must have been sccidently connecting to someone elses that had no security.

What exactly did you do with the upgrade disk and what disk is it?

Vista driver Hi When I upgraded my laptop to Vista Ultimate, I realized that there was no Vista driver for the graphics card I have. So when I upgraded, Windows created its own driver to let me use the graphics card. I accidentally disabled the driver and I don't know how to get it back on. When I go to the place I disabled the driver from, I can't find anything. Does anybody know how to get the Microsoft Windows driver back? Thanks Deez Khara
