To the best of my knowledge, you cannot change the OS on that notebook as it is an embeded system. The Gsystem is burned into a chip on the mother board and the only way at present is to reprogram a like chip and solder it in place after de-soldering the old chip. Then you would have to buy another embeded system and learn to program an EEprom chip.

Yes. you can do it, But you need have memory card sd.
In another pc or laptop with reader memory card SD You must format memory card sd in fat 32.
You must have the script of the Operating System (os) (windows ce or android Version 1.9 or lastest) and copy in th memory card SD (512 MB o 1GB) .
When sylvania 7 netbook is shutdown. You must insert the memory card sd with the copy the system operative script (You choose the system: windons ce or android ) into the reader memory card of your sylvania 7" netbook.
Now, You should power on your sylvania 7 netbook with the memory card SD inside.
You should see in the screen words, that will be update system. You must wait minutes as that process report the memory card SD should be retired.
In that moment, you should retire out the memory card SD. Will be shutdown the system. When you power on the sylvania 7 netbook will have another system operative.
good bye...

    SYLVANIA SmartBook Operating System Update:



    • Format an SD card 1GB or larger to FAT32
    • Insert formated SD card into your PC
    • Download and save the sylvania_smartbook_OS_update.zip file
    • Unzip the sylvania_smartbook_OS_update.zip file to the root of an SD card.
    • This should result in the creation of a folder called script in the root directory of the SD card.
    • Insert the SD card into the SmartBook (netbook) device and power on the netbook.
    • The netbook will update its software.
    • When completed, remove the SD card and reboot the netbook.

How to reset Sylvania notebook synet07526


Download your version of CE for smartbooks at http://netbook.poodwaddle.com/ unzip to to blank FAT32 formatted SD card: in root (dont put in folder, just put it on card) unzip CE package and copy script folder contents to root (no folder) so when device looks at SD card, it sees contents of script folder first. Use power supply when flashing. insert card, then power on. You should see device reading and updating itself.

I have a verotronics netbook pc... i am unable to open windows at all...i have forgotten my password...can you help?? i need a password recovery tool for this netbook... operating system~~windows CE ...


Hi there!
If you forgot your password to log on the notebook, there is the way to fix that problem.
Use another computer, google and download Hiren CD boot, burn that to CD and at the notebook change setting in BIOS to boot from DVD/CD ROM. Use Hiren CD to boot up your notebook, select password recover section and follow the guide to erase your current password in notebook.
Restart your notebook to let the windows start up and the password should be empty.
If necessary, please read more about Hiren CD boot up. They are free.
Hope this will help.
Thanks for reading.

I would like to know what CDRom Drive is compatible with Sylvania Netbook 7"


1. if the cd rom is usb then the netbook should detect it immediately unless it is too old for the Windows 7 Operating system
2. you can check the manufacturers site of the CD ROM and see how old it is.
if it is too old it will not mount .
3. you can check the compatibility mode for the device and see if it will load under another OS ( operating system ) such as Windows XP or Vista.
4. check windows update for latest drivers
5. Here is a link for Windows compatibility:

When the computer turns on it says.... " Application explorer.exe encountered a serious error and must shut down. Just purchased the computer and it will no go pass this error message


"Application explorer.exe encountered a serious error and must shut down"means sometime in the past, someone must have installed the OS incorrectly or has deleted something vital, which is why this error is occurring. The only way to bypass this is to reinstall windows OS using the CD that was provided for you, and this error will disappear.

I can't download Adobe Flash for my Sylvania & inch mini-Nebook


That is because your netbook runs Windows CE, that is totally different from all other Windows Os's - they have absolutely nothing in common, just the name. Almost no program made for other Windowses will work in CE , so no Flash either.

Describe your fix sylvania mini netbook Problem: How do I get it to boot from a disk (Flash drive). Since Windows CE won't work with Flash plugins I want to install Ubuntu as the OS instead.


You need to get into the BIOS. When you power on your computer, it will tell you which "F" key to press to enter the BIOS/ Start Up settings. Once you are in this mode, it will ask you how to boot up your system, i,e; Flash, CD, etc. Choose flash.

Easy solution: Find an external CD-Rom drive and install it that way. These are cheap on Ebay and in stores.

Product: Sylvania Netbook (SyNet7WID). OS: Windows CE. Question: can this system run McAfee? I'm downloading it now (or so I think; the progress bar is running, but it's taking a very long time). ...


Hello, from what I understand, the netbook doesn't use an Intel-standard processor, so only code specifically for that chip will run, ie, no downloadable plug-ins,java, flash etc. CE itself is based on windows 98. I found a site giving useful overviews on these netbooks, I think they're worth visiting: tp://bestgadgetnow.co.uk/gadget-news/99-cvs-sylvania-netbook-computer-review/
just don't try to view it on your netbook! regards, nicam49
