Internal speed of Acer Aspire One is extremely slow

The problem is that the Aspire One is extremely slow. it was designed to run a Linux operating system not windows. Microsoft just cut down Win 7 to make it work- It just doesn't work well. The only thing that may speed things up is an upgrade to 2GB of RAM. If you already have this then, you will have to live with it. Sorry.

According to me you can use Windows password recovery software to reset Windows login password.

Acer aspire one aoa150-1283 up grade Win XP to windows 7

Win 7 will use more resources and make it slower. It is a nice netbook, but still a netbook. Plus you need to consider drivers for, LAN, sound, and video.

Try testing with Win 7 advisor,

The drivers are usually in ZIP format so you need an extracing software like Winzip or 7zip to extract the files. After extracting the files to any folder you want, open that foler and then double click the files to install it into your system.

Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API. I have an Aspire one netbook without a CD rom drive. Can I get a recovery disk or can I send comp in for repairs? Warranty expired.

The program you are trying to execute needs more resources than your Netbook has available.

Your options are as follows;
1.)Increase/Upgrade the RAM in both size and speed.
2.)Increase/Upgrade the Hard drive in both size and speed, 7200RPM drive is faster.
3.)Reinstall the Windows Operating System, a computer technician will be able to do this. Contact the place of purchase in this regard.

Yes your Netbook computer needs some attention from a computer technician.

Kind Regards

I can't change my background on my netbook

Upgrade to Windows 7 Home premium or "upgrade" to another OS such as Ubuntu or another Linux distribution that doesn't cripple their system so you will purchase a higher version.

I just bought Acer Aspire Netbook, I have forgotten my password and cannot get into anything. What can I do??

If it is the logon-password for Windows, re-install the Operating System, and set a new password.

If it is the power-on password, find the original sales-receipt, and telephone ACER, to prove that you, and not a thief, is in possession of your computer, and ACER will assist you.
