I just bought a dynadock-u for my Lenovo x100e netbook. Unfortunately I don't have a cd-drive to put the installation CD in. Can I download the installation program from somewhere?

    After spending 2 hours bouncing around Toshiba's many support organizations and getting such useful suggestions such as (a) return the product and (b) buy an external CD drive, FixYa's e-ware answered my questions and told me what to do in less than 30 minutes -- and he was dead bang on right!

I have a Nikon L22 coolpix camera, i have the cd that came with it but i have a netbook and can't use the cd to Download software. where can i get the software for free so i can put it on my acer...


Hi!

Nikon doesn't offer the software for free download.
But there are many ways to get your software installed from disk. I also have a netbook without optical drive:
1.The simplest way is to ask a friend to copy all CD content on a memory stick, then you can install the software from this stick.

2. You can also use a USB external CD/DVD, and connect it to your netbook.

3. Other way is more complicated but also works: if you have another computer with CD/DVD, you can share this drive via network and map it on your netbook. Then you can use the CD/DVD drive as connected directly to your netbook.


Hope it helped.

I own microsoft office 2007 how can I download it onto my new hp mini110 which has no cd slot


"I have a netbook with no optical drive. How can I install Microsoft Office? A friend says I have to either buy Office as a download from Microsoft or get an illegal download - don't like either of those options. " Charles C from Iowa among many have asked this question.
There are several options for installing software onto a computer with no CD / DVD drive. We'll focus on Microsoft Office (as usual) but the same techniques can be used for almost any programs.
All these suggestion boil down to a simple truth - you can copy the contents of the Microsoft Office install disk to a folder which can be accessed from the netbook.
We have plenty of other netbooks on Office tips in our feature: Using Office on Netbook computers. Like this article, our feature was written on a netbook computer, so the advice is from hard personal experience.
Install disks are NOT that special There was a time when install disks were specially made so you could not copy them easily but those disks are rare these days. The installation files for Microsoft Office can be copied just like other files.
What really matters is the Product Key that's supplied with your purchase - it's that 25 character key which allows Microsoft Office to work normally. See What happens if your product key is stolen?
USB memory stick The easiest option is to copy the entire contents of the install CD to a USB memory stick or portable drive then plug that 'key' into the netbook.
Make a folder on the USB drive called, for example, Office 2007 Standard install.
Then copy the whole CD/DVD (sub-folders and all) with the root folder of the install disk copied to the new folder on the USB drive.
904-office%20install%20disk%20copied%20to%20folder%20on%20removable%20drive.jpg
Office install disk copied to folder on removable drive
When you plug the USB drive into the netbook, navigate to the install folder (ie what was the root folder of the original CD/DVD).
Double-click the setup program or right-click autorun and choose Install. This will start the install process just as it would from the CD/DVD.
Share a CD/DVD drive On a Windows network, any drive can be shared and 'seen' across the network by other authorized computers.
Go to the desktop computer, right-click on the CD/DVD drive and select Sharing (the exact menu wording depends on your version of Windows) then share the drive with appropriate permissions.
On the netbook computer, go to the Network option on the Start menu. Navigate to the desktop computer then the shared CD/DVD drive. You can then see the contents of the install disk, click on setup or autorun (as above) and the installation will begin.
Apple promoted a 'special' remote CD feature when they released the Macbook Air. It was hailed in many quarters as a wonderful innovation, despite the fact that Windows users have been able to do the same thing for years.
Copy to netbook across the network If setting up the CD/DVD as a network share doesn't suit, you can simply copy the install disk contents to a new folder on a desktop hard drive which is shared and accessible from the netbook.
On a Vista desktop machine the easiest option is copying to one of the 'Public' folders then make sure those folders are shared with the local network. The netbook computer can 'see' that shared folder on the desktop machine and you can install from there.
Alternatively, copy from the desktop CD/DVD to the netbook computer. Make some folders on the netbook shared with write permissions then open Explorer on the desktop computer navigate to the shared folders on the netbook. Copy the contents of the install CD/DVD from the desktop computer to the shared folder on the netbook. Install from the netbook folder.
Plug in a CD/DVD drive There are plenty of cheap USB CD/DVD drives available which you can buy to plug into your netbook. However, as you can see, there is usually no need because you can access an optical drive from a desktop computer via the local network.
Repairing Office In the olden days (ie a decade ago) if Microsoft Office had problems you'd have to dig out the install CD and reinstall.
For the last few versions of Office (Office 2007 and Office 2003 at least) that's rarely necessary. When Office is installed a copy of the key installation files is put in a hidden folder - if (when) Microsoft Office has a little nervy an auto-repair system should start and restore files from the source. Re-using the install disk is less common these days.

If it's not detecting the OS on your internal hard drive, I would guess that it needs to be replaced.
Concerning your lack of a CD drive, With netbooks, a USB external DVD drive is a must have. If you don't have one, and don't have the means to get one right now, try asking around with other people who also use netbooks. They will likely own one that you can use.

Netbooks don't have built-in cd/dvd drives. The only way you can install software on them is to download the software online or get an external cd/dvd drive that you can connect to the netbook's usb port.

Why am I having problems getting a user manual for my recent purchase of a think Pad netbook X100e series


I don't have any answer to your stated problem, and perusing Lenovo Support indicates that you are correct.

What I can offer, that you may not be aware of from Lenovo Support, is the Hardware Maintenance Manual.
It's in PDF file form.

The Hardware Maintenance Manual is essentially a Service Manual.
However in perusing the manual just now, I saw some items that may be of interest to you.

1) Restoring Factory Contents by using the Recovery Disk set.

2) Status Indicators
A) Power On
B) Sleep Status, (Standby for Windows)
C) Battery Status

2) Passwords

3) Power Management

4) Fn Key Combinations. (Function Key)

5) And of course FRU Replacement
(Field Replacement Unit. Some examples: Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, and so on)

This is the Lenovo Support link for the Hardware Maintenance Manual, for the Thinkpad X100e series netbooks,

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-74252

There is also a Setup Guide available in PDF file form to download,

Fomratting to original OS


Lenovo doesn't provide restore CDs... and the S10 don't even have CD drive. Since you install XP in new partition, probably Vista is still there? Try using Vista DVD (I assume you are using external CD for S10). Boot with Vista DVD and choose the repair option if available. If not, you may need to go to Lenovo support to get the S10 restored to original state.

Bought a new computer and want to use usb 3g adapter on new computer. I think I need to install software, however there is no disk drive as it is a netbook


Dear johnls,
Try to copy the installation CD to a flashdisk the run the installation from flashdisk when you connect it via USB jack on your netbook.
Or try to connect the external Optic Drive (CD/DVD ROM), wait until the netbook complete the installation of your optic drive. Restart your netbook with external CD ROM connected via USB jack, then run the 3G installation from your External CD ROM.

GoodLuck!

Best regards,
