Here is a solution I used and works just fine:

You will need:

- 2GB USB memory stick, formatted Fat32 (worked for me)
- WINDOWS XP SP2 CD or image,
- WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1.exe , download it somewhere

Extract the XP image or cd on a folder.
Plug the USB memory stick in an available slot.
Run the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1.exe, it will find the memory stick.
Select the Windows source from the folder you just extracted it to.
Hit GO, and the bootable XP USB stick will be ready in cca 20 min.
Set up your Aspire one to boot from USB, plug the bootable USB into the Aspire One slot and start the computer.
Follow the instructions on the screen and that's it. Of course you will have to install all the drivers from Acer website.

Print out this wikihow document and follow the steps

After you're done. Download the latest drivers for your hardware from Aser's website and install them. Or use the drivers CDs that came bundled with the notebook.

    After you backup your data, you need to delete all previous partitions and start a clean installation. The old drive partitions will be using Unix file system which will not be visible from windows.

Aser 5738 laptop bluetooth not working on widows 7


You will probably have to look on the net for a driver that is compatible with windows 7 for your bluetooth device. If you cant find one designed for windows 7 you could try a driver made for vista as many vista drivers work for windows 7 devices as well

If you have no video at all then turn off the laptop. Reseat the memory and then turn the laptop back on with just the AC Adaptor hooked up to see if you get video if not then try reseating the memory into the other slot and try turning it on again to see if you get video. If not then your motherboard may be bad. Just curious though after you turn on the laptop, does the hard drive light keep flickering like its trying to load windows?

Installing anti virus onto aspire one net book


Hi, the Acer Aspire is a Linux operating system based computer. It does not run Microsoft windows in the same way that Apple computers run OSX, not windows. The antivirus programs you mention are for windows computers. On the bright side, running Linux you really DON'T need virus protection Linux is inherently far more secure than windows.

No sound in aspire 5315


- I guess you downgraded your system to windows xp, If that the case you have to check if the system has an internal modem .If so, please download the driver for that PCI modem.

- I have already checked the modem that was already install on your system(V.92 56Kbps* data/fax modem,)
- You have to download the windows xp driver for this modem. or download chipset driver for windows xp
