Hey,

the drivers for all acer laptops are available at this page
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html

from the aspire list, select the aspire one that matches your model, its probably on the bottom or on the top, look around the laptop, the drivers are all at the website.

You will need atleast Wireless drivers and audio drivers, maybe more.

Its all there.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

I have Acer aspire 5742 model. It has operating system of Linpus I want to remove it and install windows 7 and Linux os. Please give instructions to do that chirani


You don't have to do anything to remove it actually. If you just format the disk it will be removed (for ever though) so just install the right on it don't even have to boot in Linpus.

Making your laptop Dual boot(that is the term for having two operating systems on a computer) with windows and Linux is a little tricky though.

Basically the whole problem is that windows will wipe your linux if you are not careful and will wipe your boot partition for sure (Windows 7 might not - haven't tried it).

So All you have to do is install Windows. While partitining the disk just take enough space for it and leave enough for the windows - you can wipe the whole disk if you want to. The Linux will need from 4 - 12+ GB of installation space (maybe less if it's live cd and you won't keep files there).
After you have installed your Windows. Just install your favorite Linux distribution in the space left.
If you have any other questions mainly to the Linux installation, I'll be pleased to help you.

Cant get into the network center on my acer aspire 1 ,


If this is an aspire One with linpus lite linux,

The network center disappearing is an issue with the linux update server that seems to corrupt the OS.

The solution unfortunately is to reload the OS from the recovery disk.

The aspire ONE does not come with an ODD so you will need to use the disk on a unit that has an ODD to make the recovery USB flash drive.

You will need a USB flash drive that has at least 2GB of storage, a computer with an ODD, and the linpus recovery disk that came ywith your unit.
1. Boot to the linpus disk, one of the options should be to make a recovery USB drive, make sure that no important data is on this USB drive as it WILL be formatted and erased.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and then insert the recovery flash drive in to the USB slot of the Aspire ONE.
3. Re-start the Aspire ONE and press F2 to go in to setup.
4. Change the boot order to boot from "USB HDD" and press F10 to save and exit.
5. Unit will reboot and recovery will start.

My acer one aspire


I use linux on my Aspire one but not Linpus Lite There is a known problem with the acer one switch. so you may want to try blacklisting the acer_wmi module and you mey have to change your wireless driver. try running NetworkManager in shell and see if it will give you any errors. My wifes Netbook has a similar problem She has the same linux i do. As far as getting NetworkManager to start automatically i'm not sure you may have to add it to startup applications but again i'm not sure about linpus and how it looks.

Aspire One runs too slow for Win program


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.

OR

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.

Thanks,

Mark
