Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure youselect the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers youthat require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on yourlaptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: - http://www.acersupport.com/drivers_download.aspx
Ouch, it appears that Linux is no longer being supported by Acer. You could try the Windows XP driver (it's worth a try) http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
If that doesn't work you might have to download the latest LINUX and reinstall it from scratch.
I do not believe this ...the only way is if there is a dual boot system installed so when you boot it should prompt you to choose the op sys ya want to run ...the solution is as fallows...either you install the windows xp ...but I heard about problems with some notebooks that came with Linux cause the HDD is too small to support windows,,,( ex 2G...) and if you install it you will not have room for anything else ..if you dont want to mess with this my solution is .. web msn messenger ..so you will be able to use it without install it ... https://login.live.com/login.srf?lc=1033&id=45940&ru=http://webmessenger.msn.com/default.aspx?pop=true&tw=20&fs=1&kv=9&ct=1239080877&ems=1&kpp=3&ver=2.1.6000.1&rn=ZhIEL9kQ&tpf=372872e4f545ca86ae55c572225f3703 make sure you disable the pop up blocker for this site ....Good luck !
You need to install Windows, or Linux from a generic install disk , and then install the drivers for your system. After installing system you will need to reinstall drivers from one of the websites below:
Are you downloading software for linux. I know that there is a limewire for linux and an msn for linux. When you save your files also, you need to choose whrere you want them to go. It's a little confusing at first because linux's filesystem is a little different than windows. If you want to save files then you need to find /home/"your linux username"/desktop. "Your linux username" is the username you use to sign in with when you first log into linux.
YOU DONT NEED BACKUP DISKS AS THEY WONT REPAIR THE STARTUP PROBLEM .. THEY WILL ONLY SAVE YOUR DATA FROM GETTING LOST .. WAHT YOU NEED IS A BOOTABLE XP OR VISTA DISK FROM WHICH YOU CAN REINSTALL THE WHOLE OPERATING SYSTEM AGAIN
