The only solution that comes to mind is to purchase an external cd/dvd drive that uses USB to connect to your netbook. Then you can install from disks. I would contact acer to make sure that if you format the drive, the external cd drive will continue to work in order to reinstall windows.

How to install wins 8 on dell Inspiron netbook 1018


proceed according. God bless you
  1. Create a New Partition
    • 1 Launch the Disk Management tool on your computer running Windows 7 by opening the Start menu and typing "diskmgmt.msc" in the search bar. The Disk Management tool, showing all connected storage devices, appears.
    • 2 Pick the hard drive onto which you'll install Windows 8. The normal choice is Disk0, which is the primary hard drive. This disk should already show your C: drive, and possibly other items like recovery partitions.
    • 3 Verify the available free space on the selected disk. For most computers with no other dual-boot setups installed, the entire drive should be occupied, so you'll have to shrink an existing drive (like C:). If there is a section with a black bar titled "unallocated," then this represents free space not currently in use.
    • 4 Shrink your C: drive by right-clicking on it and selecting "Shrink Volume." The computer assesses and reports how much free space is available on the disk. You need a minimum of 16GB of free space to install 32-bit Windows 8 and 20GB of space for 64-bit Windows 8. Type either 160000 or 200000 in the "Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB" box. Increase that number if you want additional storage space for files and programs within Windows 8. Click "Shrink" to continue.
    • 5 Right-click on the new unallocated space and select "New Simple Volume." Leave the defaults, ensuring that NTFS is selected as the file system type. Give the drive a name, like "Windows 8."
    • 6 Insert your Windows 8 installation disc or USB drive into your computer. When the new drive is formatted, restart the computer and boot from your installation disc or drive.
    Install Windows 8
    • 7 Select "Custom" during the Windows 8 Setup initialization process.
    • 8 Select the new drive you created when the installation program asks you where you want to install Windows 8. Be sure to select the drive with the label you used for the new drive; if you install to the C: drive, you will overwrite your existing Windows 7 installation.
    • 9 Follow onscreen instructions to install Windows 8.
    • 10 Reboot after you install Windows 8, ensuring that you've removed any installation media. When the computer restarts, you are presented with a boot screen that lets you pick between Windows 7 and Windows 8.

How to format aspire laptop


Formatting will wipe all of your data. Back up your system before formatting the disc. There are various ways of formatting a hard drive but probably the easiest way is to format with the windows installation disc. This will wipe the disc and install a new copy of windows. Otherwise, there are formatting programs which can be downloaded for free online: http://www.paragon-software.com/home/pm-express/

I wanted to restore my netbook to factory settings...


The Toshiba notebook laptop comes with the Windows XP operating system pre-installed. If viruses and other malicious programs have infected your laptop's hard drive, they can slow down your laptop and prevent you from accessing the Internet. You can fix these problems by using the recovery disc included with your operating system to restore the laptop back to its original factory settings.


1. Place the recovery disc, label-side up, into your Toshiba disc drive.

2. Let the program load completely, which takes just a few seconds.

3. Press the "Escape" keep to move forward to the installation process.

4.Change the drive's name to "C:/," a common name for drives in laptops.

5.Choose a name for your laptop, and click "Next" to finish the re-installation of Windows XP.

I hope you find it very helpful.

Well, you have a couple of options. You can put the files you need on a USB drive and transfer them to the netbook that way. You can also connect your netbook to an Ethernet cable and get your Internet that way. You may want to check that your wifi radio is not turned off.

I cannot get my Netbook to connect to my wireless network. I have 3 other devices that connect just fine. What am I doing wrong?


Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:

Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.
