Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

How do i use the dvd-player? .


On your model it does not have a dvd/cd rom built in. You will need to buy a external dvd/cd drive and hook it up through your usb port. Go into your operating system, then plug in the cable into the usb port. Turn on the Dvd/Cd, and windows should pop up of a hardware detect. If disc if provide with the external dvd/cd drive, use that and install the driver from that cd, you should be good to go.

I have a mini netbook which has no disc drive how do i re format / wipe / install a new windows program as it is not picking up wireless network off my router


The only solution that comes to mind is to purchase an external cd/dvd drive that uses USB to connect to your netbook. Then you can install from disks. I would contact acer to make sure that if you format the drive, the external cd drive will continue to work in order to reinstall windows.

I have the vivienne tam butterfly lovers netbook. I just purchased the wireless mouse that goes with it. It came with a cd/software todownload, but with the netbook there is no cd/dvd drive. How do i...


The netbooks require an external CD drive which must be pruchased seperately. If you have access to a computer with a CD drive you can copy the files from the CD to a USB drive and then install via the USB port on the netbook. Secondly, you can go to http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-002&h_query=Wireless+Mouse+Netbook
and find your model to download the drivers via the internet. These are a lot of different drivers, so if you can get the model number off of the mouse itself or the transmitter you can do a search via model number to get more precise results.

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.

Copy the data in the CD to a pendrive. Connect the pendrive to the USB port of your laptop and follow the instructions. You can even try using the external CD drive.
