Want to upgrade sound on aspire one netbook

I want to listen to DVD with an external drive occasionally. Is it possible to upgrade the sound card. I can barely hear the movie even with head phones. I have already turned up the volume in the control panel.

You have two things you can do to update the sound.
First, you can purchase computer speakers, and just plug them into the ear-phone output.
The quality and loudness you get will depend on the power of the speakers you purchase.
Plan on spending about $100 for a good set. Of course, the more you spend, the more powerfull the speakers and the louder the sound will be.

The other thing you can try is to purchase a USB sound card. There are a number of them. However, you will still have to plug this into the speakers you purchased. This can improve the sound quality, but the volumn will come from the speakers.

Acer aspire one aoa150-1283 up grade Win XP to windows 7


Win 7 will use more resources and make it slower. It is a nice netbook, but still a netbook. Plus you need to consider drivers for, LAN, sound, and video.

Try testing with Win 7 advisor,

Can I purchase an attachment cd player to my acer aspire one?


Netbooks are done without space for DVD drive, so you must purchase external DVD drive.
This should work for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135216&cm_re=external_dvd_drive_usb-_-27-135-216-_-Product

It is connected via USB, and I think doesn't need any other source of power.
It's really great solution for people without dvd drives.

I have acer Aspire 4720 model. I want to play Call of Duty and other heavy games. But my laptop can't support it. Can i add any external graphics card to this. Who can run call of duty.


Hi,

The laptop or Netbook computer's do not have the ability to updagrade Graphics carda as they are designed like it. The only possible hardware you can upgrade is the RAM. There are gaming laptop's available in market which are configured only for games.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

I have the Netbook and just bought an external DVD so I can watch movies on my flight to England.... Movies play fine, but there is no sound!


Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager

Click [+] next to DVD/CD-ROM drives, double-click the drive in question.
In Properties tab, make sure the box is ticked next to
Enable Digital CD-Audio for this Device

Hopefully you'll have sound after this.

I it possible to uninstal Linux OS and instal Windows XP to the Aspire One ?


Hi,
Yes you can install XP on that netbook.
Now because there is no optical drive in that netbook you will need an external CD/DVD drive connected to the netbook and an XP install CD.


You can get the Windows drivers from Acer here >>>>>>>

Just look under the netbook for the correct model number, select netbook, then Acer One and click on your model to download the drivers.

I want to create a recovery dvd, i bought an acer external dvd


It's actually called an Aspire One "Netbook". These smaller model types from every manufacturer who makes them have one thing in common ... they're not built with cd/dvd drives. Only way to truly burn recovery discs or anything else for that matter is buying yourself an external disc drive. Costs range between $50 to $120.

Can't use DVD to download software!


If you can get online, you can download and install software without a DVD player.

Also, USB flash drives are great for installing software.

Upgrading the Acer Aspire 3050 80GB Hard Drive to something bigger??


Hey there gothicarcher, this is possible to do on your own. you will need to purchase an external drive case, that does exact copies of drives. You can also use this as an external drive when you are done. You could buy a kit for upgrading that also provides the external drive case and the data copying software you will need ( EZ Upgrade kit ). Next cleanup your old harddrive of any unwanted files, and defragment it. Next, mount the new hard drive (ensure it is compatible with your laptop) in the external case. Connect it to the laptop and transfer the data. Next turnoff laptop, remove battery, and following instructions in your manual, open laptop to access the hard drive. Remove it paying extra attention to the way it mounted and any guides that may be attached. Switch guides from old to new and place new hard drive ensuring all connections are made. From here you are good to go. The old harddrive can be mounted in the external case and used. By the way, you can run programs fom an external, but they still use up some admin space on your main hardrive and the speed of the program can be hindered due to the limitations of the connection, causing the occasional stall. Good Luck! p.s. ensure you have the manuals necessary and follow all software recommendations. Lost data can hurt. Back up on disk anything that can't be replaced easily
