Question about Acer Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I recently reinstalled windows vista home premium on my Acer Aspire 6390. I don't have any of the cds that originally came with the laptop, and was forced to use a different vista install disk. Now i have no drivers for any main components, and i cant even get online with the laptop because the wireless adapter lacks its driver. if you could just tell me how to fix the internet issue i know how to do the rest

Find another computer with a USB port and Internet access.
Find a USB memory-stick.
Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://www.acer.com
and search under "support" for "Aspire" and "6390".
Download the device-driver for the wireless adapter to the memory-stick (or burn to a CD-R or CD-RW).
Move the memory-stick (or "burnt" disk) to your Acer computer, and install from there.
Voila! Internet access.

Use another computer to download all and any wifi drivers for your model from the acer support web site then simply transfer the contents to your laptop and install hopefully that should get you online and then you can get the rest of the needed drivers directly to computer

I cant find a ethernet driver for windows 7 home premium for my acer aspire t120c after updating from windows xp home 32 bit


Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download andinstall the drivers.If you don't see windows 7 drivers, maybe the vista drivers will work. Give it a try.

IF it came with a Vista Install,and you are installing the exact same Vista,then YES, The "Key" on the bottom, is the right one and it will absolutely work. These units have a BIOS that has a special Activation Code inside. The Windows install "Sees" that "Code" and Activates Vista. You DO need to user an ACER Version though, this can be downloaded from the "net though, as an ISO,burn that to DVD, and you can use that.

Windows vista home basic problem (acer aspire 6930)


Unless you can find and verify you have an orignal CD there is nothing you an do but buy another license for th use of Vista. If you made a back up set up. Have yo ulooked at the bottom of the laptop. Most of the time it has the Vista sticker with the key for your windows use. reinstall and use that key.
