For aspire one you need to download the Fedora 7 package from the Skype Website.

Afterwards, just do what your aspire asks you to do. When everything is installed, just press alt+F2, type in "skype", en press "Run". Skype will start up. That's it

I think you need to install the skype installer from free download websites. This software is bit different. The file name is skype.mri and the free website is softepedia.

What are the error messages you are getting? What operating system do you have? Lastly, How much free storage do you have on your harddrive.

Linux requires 20mb of free space as well as the Windows operating system. You need 256mb RAM and a fast connection (384kbps)

Recovery acer5538


What is this
Do want recover your acer to factory defaults.?
or
use a usb memory card (usb drive)
The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop.
A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop.
It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature.
You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard.
Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.
Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives.
Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.

Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen.
The recovery menu will load.
Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options.
Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears.
Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
Restore your saved files from the flash drive.
An example on how to safe documents , photos or data to a usb drive
Click start all programs accessories open windows explorer navigate to your photos
Right click on the documents , photos select copy navigate back to the usb drive right click select paste or select the top photo hold the mouse cursor then select the bottom photo then drag the photo's to your usb drive then drop them
or if you are downloading data or programs from the internet
once it starts downloading windows will ask whether you want to run or save it a browse option will open you can save it into a folder in my documents or another device or a usb device

I have downloaded skype successfully onto my acer aspire netbook. where will I find it on the netbook?


Hi,

You can try to search it on your computer if you're using Windows XP. Open my computer than Press Control + F type the name of the program then select the your hard drive the click on Search.

Windows Vista and Seven: Click on Start then on the lower left under All Programs or Programs just type Skype. and you'll see the installer. The next time you download a file make sure you verify the specific location where you save it.

Thanks for using Fixya.
