Hello

Remember, the default restore disc that comes with the laptop has all the drivers for your notebook. You installed xp now, and most probably the drivers for your wireless is not installed. My advive will be to download the drivers for xp for your wireless. Then it should work fine.

Best regard

Restore to factory settings


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop.
A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop.
It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature.
You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard.
Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.
Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives.
Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.

Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen.
The recovery menu will load.
Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options.
Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears.
Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

U may have a motherboard issue causing all of your problems. Wipe your hard drive completely and then try a vista reinstall with the software that came with your machine. If it still does not work, it has to be the mo bo.

Got my brothers old comp, reloaded windows now wireless wont work


Did you install a retail version of Windows? You should have used the restore disc that came with the laptop when you purchased it. That will solve driver related problems if your wireless card is okay.
Check Device Manager if wireless card is still there.
If you install a retail version of Windows, check the support website. Check the wireless card's manufacturer and contact that manufacturer so they can give you the driver for the wireless card.
If you install a retail version of Windows, installing the driver from the support website might not work.
If you used the recovery disc that came with the computer, it should work.

Restore


I actually have one of these, I just went and got Fedora 10 (Fedora version of Red Hat Linux vs. the pre-installed Linpus version of Red Hat Linux) and installed it instead. Anyways, there should be a way to take the cd, load it onto another computer, and have it put itself on an empty 2GB (or bigger) USB thumb drive if you can't get a cd loaded onto it. I did this several times before I went to Fedora 10, and the wireless works in Fedora 10.

Acer Aspire (or rather expire) Help Please !!!


if you're using the service pack 1 then that could be your problem. If you go to the microsoft website and download the service pack 2 and save it somewhere and then burn it to a disc then put it onto the computer you put XP pro onto this could rectify those issues. I hope this works for you
