Hi ourkiddys...
How to reinstall the Operating system on your computer

Select models, with Microsoft Windows, have the ability to have the Operating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.
To start the system recovery:
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
3.If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
4.After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form..
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
3.Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
4.Close the CD-ROM tray.
5.Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
6.The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
7.When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

8.After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: if your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.

I don't have a webcam on my ACER Aspire M3910-2.


This model Acer does not have a built-in WEBcam.
You need to purchase an USB WEBcam and install the WEBcam driver on your Acer.

Acer Touch Z29OG do not have a dedicated Webcam Software, so inorder to use the webcam you have use a 3rd party software like MSN or Yahoo Messenger. You have also use any software that uses webcam to record.

Thanks and regards,

Hi there , My Acer Veriton has no sound card and no facility for one as far as I can see. Is it possible to use a USB external type. And if so how would that work? Rudy, from Australia


USB sound cards work quite well, will your PC support USB2? I have never seen a pc without a sound card? No PCI slots?

USB sound cards have their own internal workings not needed by the PC so it should work just fine. Now if they could just make a USB video driver card :)

I have been given a acer veriton 5100 it has a program called ubuntu it does not have windows program and will not auto run disks that i insert can you give advise


"Ubuntu" is a Linux operating system, not a Windows operating system. It will not run any windows programs or autoplay any windows CD's unless you have an "emulator" or hypervisor installed, which is not by default. Here is a link to the Ubuntu website that you can browse to find out more information on that Operating System - http://www.ubuntu.org  There you can research the running of a Windows emulator called "WINE" (much to detailed to get into here). Or you can purchase a 3rd party hypervisor, such as VMware Workstation, that will run a virtualized copy of a Windows operating system (such as XP) inside Ubuntu.
Long story short - you cannot use your Windows disks in this laptop with Ubuntu operating system installed without a add-on emulator or program.
Good luck!

I have a Toshiba P200-RT2 laptop and I am trying to use my webcam on MSN and when I click to send my webcam invitation is says that my webcam is in use or not plugged in. I have tried signing on and off...


First go into control panel, click system and go to device manager. Make sure there are no conflicts when the web cam is plugged in. Is this webcam built into the laptop or via usb?
Thanks,
