All you have to do to reset (as long as the HDD is intact) is when unit is first powered on press Alt + F10 together about once every second and it should state "windows is loading files"...It may take a few attempts, but should work ok, follow onscreen instructions to run a factory default recovery, good luck.

if you can get an external cd/dvd drive from a friend, then you could solve the problem.

other solutions would mean that you will reinstall windows again. This takes more time and has a few tricks to be done from a flash drive.

SOURCE: Hi, my acer aspire one

The Acer Aspire One Netbook has a hidden partition containing the files required for restoration to the original factory condition. The restoration clears all user data from the C: drive and requires that you have the netbook plugged into its AC adapter as the process takes significant time during which it should not be interrupted at the risk of hard disk corruption. To begun the process....
1. power on the netbook while it is plugged into its AC adapter
2. during power-on, while the Acer Logo is showing, press Alt and F10 together several times
3. Acer eRecovery loads showing the Windows screen momentarily
4. follow the on-screen directions and make the selection to recover the factory default image

How do I install windows without a CD-ROM it has USB slots only?


Copy the CD ROM to a 5 GB memory USB thumb drive. Take the netbook into recovery mode and point it to the USB.

DIDNT THE NETBOOK COME WITH AN OPERATING SYSTEM?

Although not sure, if it has no CD-ROM the OS would be on a hidden partition within the netbook.

I would like to know what CDRom Drive is compatible with Sylvania Netbook 7"


1. if the cd rom is usb then the netbook should detect it immediately unless it is too old for the Windows 7 Operating system
2. you can check the manufacturers site of the CD ROM and see how old it is.
if it is too old it will not mount .
3. you can check the compatibility mode for the device and see if it will load under another OS ( operating system ) such as Windows XP or Vista.
4. check windows update for latest drivers
5. Here is a link for Windows compatibility:

Is it possible to fix a notebook that has a message with load needed dlls for kernel. It's for a notebook. I've looked it up and it tells me to put the cd in and restore it. I have a notebook and...


Hi.

Yes it is possible to fix the netbook. All you need to do is reinstall the operating system. You will have to get hold of an external DVD/CD drive or install Windows through a USB drive.

With a DVD/CD drive all you need is the XP installation CD. Connect the drive to the power outlet and then plug the USB lead to the computer. turn the netbook on and hit the F12 key or the key it tells you for "Boot Options". Select the "USB CD-ROM" device and follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system.
If you haven't got an XP installation CD then you'll have to purchase one.

You can also install XP from a USB flash drive. Click on the link I have provided below for an in-depth explanation for how to install Windows XP from a USB flash drive>>>



http://komku.blogspot.com/2008/11/install-windows-xp-using-usb-flash-disk.html




If you decide to install using the USB flash drive then to get the system to boot from the USB flash drive just follow the same instructions for the DVD/CD drive.



Hope this helps and please post back if there is anything else.



Regards.

Upon startup before anything else happens (except asking me if I want to press f2 for setup) my aspire one netbook says: For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller... v1.0.0.5(1/22/09) check cable...


This means you should install an Operating System.
If your notebook doesn't have a dvd drive you can install the Operating System with an external drive (dvd, USB flash drive or hard drive). and press F12 when it starts to select the booting device.
