Installing hardware/software files

Hi Guru

I'm having a lot of trouble trying to install any files
for software/hardware on my acer aspire one.

Just bought an external USB CD ROM to install
things like Photoshop & Nero express on my Aspire
One. The acer aspire1 recognises the Cd ROm - I click
on Photoshop Elements for e.g. and it simply opens
a range of available files on the CD ROM. How do
I install my software??? It's driving me crazy!!!

I even have got myself into the 'advanced menu' and
can open the 'add/remove software' option under
'system'. I input the correct password & all seems
to be well - the acer retrieves software info & then
opens up a box with 3 columns 'browse', 'list', etc.
Don't recognise any of the files it lists in these areas.

Can you please help me?

Installing anti virus onto aspire one net book


Hi, the Acer Aspire is a Linux operating system based computer. It does not run Microsoft windows in the same way that Apple computers run OSX, not windows. The antivirus programs you mention are for windows computers. On the bright side, running Linux you really DON'T need virus protection Linux is inherently far more secure than windows.

Acer Aspire 3000 volume problems


checked sound driver in device manager.
most likely is software issue.
if your sound driver is ok in device manager and the sound isnot working, try to re-install the driver,
if it still not working, reload/re-install the operating system.
if after you re-install operating system, still not working, it might be your motherboard

I can't download music


Hi!
What matter here is not the brand of laptop or pc you have. What you've just encountered is the compatibility of its software on your OS and to other Media software. so you should decide which is more convenient for you to use then install it, but be very careful, make sure that your OS will support it, otherwise you are just installing a trouble on your pc or laptops.

Acer aspire 3680 could not load dvd driver


Let me guess...you tried to install Roxio or another burner, and then it did not work, so you uninstalled it, but now your dvd drive has disappeared. You have tried to update the drivers, but you get a message showing that you have the latest driver, but alas, no dvd drive.

Use the restore point created just prior to installing the burner software and you will be fine. I have fixed 5 Acer 3680 laptops in the last two weeks with this problem. If you want to use Roxio or another burner software, go to the Acer webpage and link from them. Peace and good luck.
