Hi, my laptop’s microphone is not functioning well, or should I say, not functioning correctly. It will only work if you will plug it in the headphone jack. But, this is not on its right jack. Please see details for my laptop:
-Acer Aspire 5532
-Windows Vista
-two jacks for headset microphone

I want to know if this is a problem with my headset microphone, on the jack or my laptop itself. I am willing to buy another headset microphone, but not buy a new laptop. So, if you think that this is about my laptop, kindly advise what steps I should take to resolve this problem.

Thank you.

For some reason I always getting a message that says my usb device is disconnected. After a couple of minutes, it will say connected again. It’s very annoying to hear the disconnection sound.

Right now these are the usb devices that are connected to my Dell Optiplex.

  • USB optical mouse
  • USB stick modem
  • Keyboard

I don’t know if the problem is on my devices or with the usb port of my computer. I tried unplugging them all and use them one by one but I still got that message. Also, I checked device manager and everything seems to be fine.

My Laptop battery does not meet expected life.

I have purchased a Laptop 10 months ago. My laptop came along with 6 cell battery which initially gave me approximately two and half – 3 hours back up time as promised by the Manufacturer. It has now started giving me about 1 hour back up time. The battery icon shows 80% – 85% charged and 2-3 hour backup time. But in reality it hardly gives me about 1 hour back up.

Pleas provide me any solution. My system is still under warranty but manufacturer refused battery replacement stating it’s a consumable commodity and does not get covered under warranty.

Hello,

I have 2 projectors NEC VT 480 and only 1 remote control RD-427E. The remote control is working very well and I can use the remote control to operate both projectors.

The problem is there are 2 buttons representing mouse that seems not to be working. When I tried using PowerPoint to run some slides, I can’t seem to change slides automatically using those buttons ( L-Click and R-Click) and I have to do it manually on the laptop to get it done. I can use the other buttons to change the view from computer 1 to computer 2 just fine.
