Can't backup my harddrive

I have just purchased the Acer Aspire One AOA 150-155 with Windows XP from Micro Center in Dallas. It will not allow me to make a CD backup of my harddrive. I do not want to use the remote backup service and pay an additional $43/year. I followed all the directions for the Acer emaintance, but it only reinstalls the factory install. Can anyone tell me who to contact at Acer or how to make a CD backup from one of these notebooks.

I work at a computer repair shop, and we use norton ghost all the time. Its very easy to use and I would definatly reccommend it. As for a backup CD, you would need an external cd or dvd burner which costs between $50-100. Another solution is to complety wipe your hard drive and install windows fresh. This would remove all the factory installed programs as well as all your data so back it up! I hope this helped you.

I want to downgrade ACER ASPIRE M5641 desktop form vista to XP. What steps to follow? Also I have only the backup CD which I made right after the purchase , originally installed with VISTA. Understand it...


You'll have to purchase the XP software, set your computer to boot from cd (in the cmos settings), put the disk in the cd and restart you computer. When the screen comes up to "...hit any key to boot from cd" hit any key. The system will boot to the XP cd and will allow you to delete the old partition, reformat your drive, and install XP. Next go to www.acer.com and download your drivers. Finally install your programs and data on to your hard drive. Have fun!

NOTE: Make absolutely sure that you backup the programs and data that you want to keep before starting the XP install!

I need to re-install windows XP, I dont have the setup disc. Does Acer have a backed up copy of windows on a seperate partiton? If so, how can I access it?


Windows XP cannot be reinstalled unless you have your original ACER backup disks included with your purchase. Sorry, but if you don't have these, you'll need to purchase a copy of XP. BestBuy has the best prices...

Just added a new harddrive to an acer 3680 notebook


For some reason or another sometimes Windows XP will not load unless you partition and format the new disk first. Try it you having nothing to lose as it will do no damage to your hard drive.

My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working


For Windows users with AOA 150-Bb model: Download Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772 (Size: 50.5 Mb) available at ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_150/driver/Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772.zip Installing it solves the problem, both builtin and external mics working correctly.

On AOA 150-Ab migrated to Windows XP Professional the Driver Audio_Realtek_5.10.0.5628_XPx86 (Size: 42.6 Mb) seems that works fine.

All drivers available at http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html by selecting different models different drivers are shown also. (AOA 150 for v5.10.0.5628, AOD for v5.10.0.5767...)
