Acer Aspire Netbook without external DVD/CD rom How to Load CD


This will work on any model or make of net-book or Laptop enabling you to load CD's or DVD s with software onto your net-book laptop especially good when the CD/DVD drive has stopped working or is non existent, there are a few prerequisites before you can carry out this operation.
1:You must be in a networked environment in your home/workplace
2;One of the networked computers must have a CD/DVD ROM available
3:The computers must have been linked in a home or a small office network
4: Printers and sharing must also be activated in that network


Method is as follows:-
On the Work-group/Home network computer with CD/DVD ROM click on Start then my computer and look for CD/DVD ROM icon.
Right click on the icon then click sharing and security enable sharing and security then restart this workstation , You will then see the shared hand icon underneath this icon representing it is a shared item after restart to confirm it is shared.

On the laptop/net-book look in my network places you will see the CD/DVD ROM available to you now all you need to do is place in the work-group computers CD/DVD ROM the required software disk and there you have your problem solved without the expense of purchasing an external CD ROM
Operate now your Net-book/Laptop with available CD/DVD icon and double click it or right click and explore choice is yours.
Look at following Pictures

I hope this explains how to do it if you have further problems let me know
Should you not have at least the above 4 listed items at the top of the page then this method wont work .I will publish another method soon for those people that have no network and only have a single net-book/Laptop with no CD capability

Please install the Sony Shared Library and then install the Original Sony Visual Communication Camera to resolve the Camera issue. If you installed Windows 7 32 bit Operating System also, you can try installing the same Driver as the Drivers for Windows Vista should work under Windows 7 Operating System.
Sony Shared Library is the System component which makes the installation of the other Drivers compatible with the Computer.

Try installing the Camera Driver for the Windows Vista Operating System and this should work.
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNCR510E&upd_id=3586&os_id=28
Download Superweb camera software to use camera.

Function keys may not work under Windows 7 Operating System. However, only in few cases, you can update the Video Driver, install the Sony Notebook Utilities, VAIO® Event Service Update to resolve the issue.

Wireless printing


I assume you have a wireless network set up with a wireless router, since you said you have a wireless laptop.
You need to share the printer on the desktop. You also need to set up both computers to be on the same network (for example, WORKGROUP or MSHOME, or a name of your choosing).Once shared and on the same network, you can go to the laptop and add a printer--just tell it that it is a network printer.
A caution--to work without further hassle, both computers need to be running the same version of Windows. If not, you'll need the driver disk for the system on your laptop.

Wireless prob


Open the Printers and Faxes folder on the computer that was connected to your printer.
To open the Printers and Faxes folder
• Click Start and then click Control Panel.
• Click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
• In the Printers and Faxes folder, Click the printer's icon and, in the tasks pane, Click Share This Printer.
• Open the printer's Properties dialog box, and clicked on the Sharing tab.
• Click Share Name, and then click OK.
That's it—the printer is immediately available for other computers to use.
Now that you have a network printer, Your was ready to connect to it and print from other computers on the network.
To connect to the printer:
• Open Control Panel, and clicked Printers and Other Hardware.
• Click Add a Printer.
• Instead of adding a local printer, click Printer Connection and then browse the network for the printer.
