How could a brand new USB flash drive not have enough room to store the first file i attempted to store on it ???

Depends on how big the usb drive is and how big the file is... for example you can put a 12 gb file on an 8 gb flash drive. Good luck, Bar1no.

Hi i'm having problems booting up my aspire one notebook.notebook turns on, type in password all ok then then the desktop icons come up for a few moments then the power switch goes out and th unit goes off...

Need to add more thermal pad on your CPU. I faced this before. After add it, no more problem. If the problem still remain, then try to format. Might be stupid and lousy virus in your system

Problem with inner plastic cover in Acer Aspire 5735z

If you squeeze it together, it might "click" in to place. Either way, it is no big deal. Acer is a good company. They will fix it if it is in warranty :)

post a comment if you have any problem with this

Aspire acer one notebook not connecting to internet

is the wireless turned on on the computer? sometimes there is an external switch, or sometime it is a key combination. but always there is a light which should come on if the card is active. so look around the computer for a wireless icon.

I need a optical drive for a Acer Aspire

what happened to ur old dvd drive is it not working i can help u in this if u want

Straight option
Call Acer and ask them for a new DVD drive but it will be costly bcoz acer will charge u as an OEM bcoz they dont make drives but if u buy from them u dont have to do anything just open the screw and slip the drive in

other option

but if u want cost effective solution then try EBAY but at this option u might not find exactly for ACER but u will find universal type u have to see the face plate of the drive but u can easily take out the face plate of ur old drive and can easily fit to the new drive if it does not fit ur notebook there are pins to take the face plate out

u can try on EBAY go for OPTIARC - NEC -Toshiba is also good but never buy MATSHITA brand it is not good at all pls avoid it at any cost

pls let me know if i can help more in this

and pls do rate me FIXYA for this if u like my response

Replacing the dvd cd rom in my aspire 5315. Acer sent me a new one and I dont know how to install it

Replacing the drive in a desktop is pretty easy, but the Aspire is a notebook. You put your question in the wrong category. I have opened three or four Notebooks of different brands before, but the key is to find a good disassembly guide. Dell has them on their web site, but I have not found the same thing for the Aspire.
If you repost this question under Notebooks instead of Desktops, someone may be able to help you more.

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam

Your questions are less about an issue and more about just how to use the machine. persavere and keep trying different things. Eventually good things will happen. Its how we all had to learn. As for accessing the camera go to start and search the word cam. vistas usually pretty good and will find it for you
