Question about Acer Aspire One AOA150-1570 Notebook PC
I was given an Aspire One for Christmas with Linpus OS on it.
After 4 days, I found out that to run my Windows program, [I only need one], I needed another program named "Wine", and to use that, I needed another called "Yum", [yes, I know, but try to stay awake!]
Having got my program installed, it runs, but sloooooowly, with 15 seconds delay before each key stroke registers on the screen.
Any ideas, before I have Linux/Linpus ripped out, and a proper Windows OS installed?
Honestly, you may want to not run Windows.
Linux has all the necessary programs and utilities to run Windows programs. You just have to find them. Goto: www.download.com and click on the tab for Linux Search there.
Just wipe the entire harddrive with a Windows Disc Master install. This option will begin when you place the windows disc in the CD Drive and do a boot up from the CD drive. It will ask you if you want to format harddrive and say yes to that. After windows is properly installed, reboot again, see if all the ports, keyboard, mouse usb's jacks work properly, speakers, etc. If not goto the Aspire website and goto support and download all the drivers for your model.
