I own an ACER 4315 Laptop computer MS2220 Atheros AR5BXB63 with Windows Vista Home Basic. I'd like to partition the hard drive to run Ubuntu Linux. However the Ubuntu 7.04 Liveboot CD not recognized as a...


Hello there.

Nice to see more people trying out Linux :-)

From your description it sounds like the CD image you downloaded is not bootable. What i would do is scrap that CD and try the following, this is a guide that explains step by step how to take the downloaded .ISO file and burn it to CD, so that the computer can boot from it (known as a bootable CD).

Please click here for the information.

As Ubuntu has a partition program as part of the installer, you can use this to resize your Windows partition and install Ubuntu in the free partition left over.

This should get you setup in no time :)

Hope this helps.

How to put xp home edition on an acer aspire 17" laptop which currently has vista home basic on


First and foremost before you try to downgrade your OS from Vista to XP make sure that you can find a working device driver for your laptop, if you check your manufacturer's website(Acer) see if they have XP drivers for your device because I had some clients that are having problem trying to make some of their device work(built in webcam, ethernet, wi-fi, sound) when they downgraded to XP for faster processing.

Reset my acer aspire 6920 to factory settings


This is a tried and tested way to recover it takes quite long but here goes: (remember to backup all your documents first)

First you will need your Windows Vista Home Premium licence key the easiest way is to boot to safe mode using F8 then use a U3 stick USB drive with this U3 WinkeyFinder installed to find and save your Genuine Licence and also backup your Windows Activation file you will need this for later.

1.Install your Windows Vista Home SP1 operating system using the normal method with your install CD use you Genuine Key found using WinKey. Then restore you activation file using Winkey on the U3 drive.

2. Dowload the Windows Vista SP2 Patch CD from the Windows Website.

3. Reload all you drivers using this excellent Aspire 6920 recovery CD from WinGuides. It will cost you £10.

All done. if you dont have a Windows Vista SP1 Install CD then you will also have to download one which you can do legally as you already have a Genuine Licence if not check using this MGA Tool

Hope this helps please rate !

We have an Acer 3650 laptop loaded with Vista. The wireless connection has dropped off and we don't know how to get it back - can you give me an easy to follow instruction on how how to do this? Thanks.


First make sure the Wi-Fi connector didn't get accidently turned off.

On the front of the computer, (right in the midde) is the wireless button, Press to enable/disable it. Try that first.


PS - you can download the manual here: http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/downloadPage.jsp?doc=caf09f1c3e92ebda8a9d9dcd8625b7f0&q=Acer+Aspire+3650

Does my Aspire 5580/5570/3680/557OZ laptop support an wireless internet card? Or do I have to use a wireless router?


It does support a internal wireless mini pci card, however access is probably under the keyboard.

to see if 1 is installed, goto start, right click on my computer, left click on properties.

In Vista select device manager from left column,

XP left click on hardware, device manager.

click on the + by network adapters and see if it is listed
wirelesse.g. intel pro,atheros, broadcom, etc.

to turn it on is usually a slide switch in front next to external head phones and bluetooth.
