Use a USB stick. They are real cheap these days.You may have to use someones computer with a drive to transfer the software to the stick. Another method is to buy a USB DVD drive. Some will likely be on sale for Black Friday tomorrow.

Hi Juliet,
Thanks for your clarification. Apparently the Sdesk application is discontinued. I did however find something which should be equally or possibly better than Sdesk. You can take a look at:

They have a free edition available for download although this edition is only able to scroll horizontally. I am not sure of pricing etc. for other editions but please browse the website and let me know if this will solve your problem.

I cannot open the diskdrive in a d510. How do I get the plastic diskdrive front cover off?

What disk drive? The CD/DVD? If so, you have to have the tray open to remove the cosmetic front bezel. Not sure why you would want to remove the bezel though. The drive should have a small hole in front. Take a paperclip and straighten it. Use the paperclip to force open the drive. You can force open the drive with either the computer on or off.

How resstore my acer aspire to factory settings?

There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process. If there is not a disk,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.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.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

hope this helps,Goodluck..

I have an Acer Aspire One 532h netbook and it was working fine one day, then the next when I turned it on, the lights went on and the fan, but nothing on the screen. Now it won't turn on at all. The...

Remove the hard drive before you take it in for repairs. Do not touch the circuit board on the hard drive. Put it in a clean, dry place away from children or pets until you get the computer back, then reinstall it.

Hopefully, the hard drive is easy to get at through a removable panel (see your owner's manual). If not, when you take it in, ask the service tech to take it out right away and give it to you in an anti-static bag. Take it back with you when you go back to pick up the repaired netbook so it can be reinstalled. The cost for this should be covered in the warranty.

I dont understand how to download programs onto my acer aspire netbook

Programs can be installed from cd's or downloaded from the internet. You may first want to know what kind of program you need. It may already be installed in your computer.
