This is a good question. If you have the original disc that came with your laptop, definitely use it. Then, download AVG v8.x FREE for virus protection. If you don't have the original disc, I may be able to assist you in finding drivers for your Bluetooth and WiFi interfaces. I'd suggest the first option as it will give you correctly matched drivers, for your devices.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,

I tried system restore after I got internet explorer 8, to restore to a date when I was using internet explorer 7 and lost my browser. I could not undo the restoration, either. Can you please help me?

I have an Acer Aspire 5251 and want to no if i can down load Bluetooth on it


Some Acer Aspire 5251 has Bluetooth hardware, some don't. If you don't have the hardware part of it, the software part of it will not do you any good. Chances are though, however, that you do not have the Bluetooth hardware in it.

You can get a USB Bluetooth dongle for *very* cheap, here is a link to one: Link

Hope this helped!

You will need to boot from a windows CD / DVD if you dont have one borrow one do a full format and reinstall. When you do get it all back to new do yourself a favour and put an anti-virus program on it there is planty of free ones out there which work great. AVG or Avast are a few good ones.......good luck with it and please vote

Cannot reload original software


I am sure that you can order replacement recovery disks from Acer. If that fails, you can load any retail version of Windows XP, and go to this site to download and install all of the appropriate drivers.

I believe if you hit either f10, f11 or f12 when the system firsts starts up (just keep hitting them) it should run the system restore program there..it loads up the hidden recovery partition so no discs are needed.
if the system boots into windows, run the eRecovery software and tell it to restore to factory defaults.
as for the 2nd guy, aslong as the disc you are using is the same version as what is on the laptop (check the license key on the bottom of the laptop) if should work.
