Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
I have an acer aspire one 8.9 was running with Linux, I put in windows xp, that seem to work fine, now I get Error 17....would like step by step procedure...I am disable, and don't know much about computers, but I am willing to try, since I do not have much money to buy another...any kind soul, out there which i know there are some out there, please help me...thank you....
Error 17 is normally related to a particular device not having the correct driver. One way to fix this is to force the computer to reinstall and configure the driver by "removing" the device from windows and reinstalling it.
Here's how to do it:
First, you should figure out what device is causing trouble. The error message you get (after Error 17) may tell you some information such as whether it is your display, network adapter, or something else.
Right click on the My Computer icon and choose Properties. (My Computer may be on your start menu)
Click on the Hardware tab and click the "Device Manager" button.
The offending device may show with either a red 'x' through it or with an exclamation point in a yellow circle.
Right click on the problem device and select "uninstall"
The computer should now uninstall the device.
I would recommend rebooting next.
Upon booting, the computer may automatically find the new device. If not go to Start -> Control Panel (or Start -> Settings -> Control Panel)
Choose Add Hardware
Follow the wizard and let it automatically find the device and install the drivers for you.
Hope this helps - flub
