My Problems with Window 7

Hello guys,

I have bought an Acer laptop with Window 7 last week and I really wish I hadn't now...

Problems so far:

1. It loses connection after half an hour and the wireless device adaptor or whatever it's called does not show any connections available (not just mine one..)

2. I cannot wach youtube because it does not download Adobe flash player...

Can anyone help please?

Thanks a million!

Neda

2) Are you downloading from Abobe web site?

hmm.. yeah, it sort of sounds like a potential issue with that wireless card. All of my seven machines stay connected no problem. With what browser are you trying to install adobe flash?

Re: Flash, are you running a 32 or 64 bit system? If you're running 64, then you'll have to open a 32 bit browser and install Flash within it, as there is currently no 64 bit Flash available.
Windows has a built in 32 bit version of IE 8, or you could download Firefox, always a great browser.

Hopefully I will be available to watch it soon even with internet explorer...
Regarding the wireless, it does work, it only stops working after an hour or so.......
