I would return it .. our Janitor has one, a gift from his dad.. He brought it up to me to setup for him.. If every thing would work, it would not be a big deal. I did at one point get it to connect to a wireless connection, but it would not communicate - would never get an address for a DNS server. Then at one point it would not turn on. After letting is set overnight it would start up but not a single program was on the device. I hit the reset button, nothing. I downloaded the latest and greatest OS update from the advertised web site.. unzipped it to an SD card.. tried to re-flash the unit - nothing.. Now I cannot recharge the batteries .. I can't wait to get rid of it. Most (maybe all) of the reviews and comments you read about this device are negative in one way or another.

I have a sylvania notebook, and it runs so slow. It is running off of Internet Explrer 6, I have tried downloading mozailla firefox, google chrome, internet explorer 9, and it wont let me. Everytime I try...


Your netbook doesn't run Windows XP, it uses a cheap version called Windows CE, which is more designed for phones. The reason that you can't install Firefox or Chrome is because Windows CE doesn't support programs designed for Windows XP, Vista, or 7. You can try installing Opera Mini by going to m.opera.com, but there no guarantee that it will work.

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.

You can run software that says it is designed for WindowsCE. This is not the same as full Windows (xp, vista, 7) so normal windows programs will not work.

I recently purchased a Sylvania Windows CE wireless portable device and I am UNABLE to install flash players... Not understanding the diffucult in suh a small produt. Please I would appreciate service or...


This device only runs Adobe Flash Lite, which is pre-installed.
As a result, many Flash sites will not work with this Netbook.
None of the full flash players will install on this device since it does not run Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7 - it only runs the stripped down Windows CE which is one of the reasons it is so inexpensive.

I bought this computer for a 7 yr old and she cant even use it cause it wont play games. It wants me to download adobe flash player but it dont have the windows ce as an option> What do I do?


Hello, reading about your laptop, it sounds like it's main function is for reading emails on. If possible, take it back to the shop and buy something else that your child to play games on.
You're not alone, it seems, with this issue.

My Sylvania 7" netbook from CVS uses Windows CE.


Google "digital gadgets.com". There find "Sylvania Products". Then click on "7 inch netbook support" and follow directions.
For item # 4, you find your "hot spot" name and click "connect". For item # 5, you may have to call your Internet Service Provider (Charter, AT&T or whoever you pay for your internet in order to get your "network keys" fill that in and then click "OK".

Next be sure you go to "Start", "Settings", "Control Panel", "Internet Options", "General" and complete "user agent (requires browser restart" by selecting:
"Default (same as windows XP)" or
"Same As Pocket PC" or
"Windows CE".

I selected "default" and was off and running.

Although this isn't a "lap-top" it is a really neat little machine and does a lot of stuff almost like one. It should be great for travel! It is a little slow and has small memory, but it's inexpensive and usb/sd ports are there. A regular universal mouse helps-just plug it into a USB port. I'm doing internet, movies, word processing,etc like everything and I think a lot of people are way under-rating this fun machine! -DKA-

I just recently received the sylvania 7 inch netbook as a gift. It comes with windows ce,im not familiar with using this hard wear and for some reason i cant connect to the internet via wifi what can i do?


Windows CE or windows embedded compact is an operating system for minimalistic computers and have minimal storage. My friend had also that notebook but she just browse the features of it and later on she learned how to use it. Windows CE is not a complicated software it's a simple program and easy to learn. Good Day!

I have a sylvania notebook i want to change os how do i do that i have no cd rom do i use a usb flash windows ce is harable.


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.
