No you can not. You are stuck with what was incorporated into Win CE that you have on the system. You can use what you have but cannot add to it. See for a review of the machine.

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, but there no guarantee that it will work.

Hi & thanx. hav sylvania netbook. windows CE. am unable to run any downloaded .exe for anything. like adobe, or a browser that youtube now requires. thoughts?

Well if the notebook was setup before you got it, you may not have the permissions necessary to do those things. If you go into control panel and into accounts you can check what permissions you do have. Make sure on your account you have selected full control, if not create a new account from admin and configure the new account to have full control.

I \n having a problem that I cant download adobe shockwave or flash player please help?

Those particular netbooks are loaded with versions of Windows CE which is very very different from the other versions of Windows, so prgrams that you could just download for like windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, won't necessarily work on a Windows CE machine. Windows CE is a small embedded operating system that can have very specific features. The main issue you're going to encounter is that Windows CE can be "tailor-made" for each company that orders copies of it, so you will have to contact Sylvania and find out the exact features of the Operating System that they ordered from Microsoft. HOWEVER, I have heard rumors of Flash Lite for the Pocet PC working on the Sylvania netbooks, so you can attempt to download that.

Hope this helps, if not, please comment back and let us know!

I cant download adobe flash player onto the netbook

Hello, there's loads of help, info, and advice of the type you need, on Just do a search for your Sylvania G-Netbook on here and be prepared to read loads as it appears you're not alone out there with Netbook issues.
p.s. the bottom line is that you can't install flash as the Netbook isn't Intel-based. You have to run the mobile version of youtube, which I understand is available as an icon on your desktop. Windows CE itself is a version of Windows 98 specially ported to run on the processor used in your Netbook.
Also check out this link to some video reviews of the product which explain things really well.

I got a new Sylvania netbook and for some reason it won't connect completely to the internet. We have an open network and sometimes it won't connect at all, but when it does, it won't let me open certain...

Maybe you hadn't fully set it up.

Try checking the following to see if any of these steps were missed.

On a "hooked up" computer, Google "digital". There find "Sylvania Products". Then click on "7 inch netbook support" and follow directions inputing to the 7" netbook as you go.

For item # 4, you find your "hot spot" name (on the 7" netbook) 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 (on the 7" netbook) and then click "OK".

Next (on the 7" netbook) 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, YouTube, word processing,etc like everything and I think a lot of people have way under-rated this fun little machine!

Probably not-because the hardware components in that netbook wont support anything else (re: not enough memory,graphics,cpu,etc) BUT you can download the Windows 7 upgrade advisor tool from microsoft for FREE

Bought a sylvania netbook while in the usa but unable to download a version of flash player that works with windows ce any help would be appreciated

It is my understanding that Flash Player only works with certain versions of Windows. Check the Microsoft website to verify whether or not it supports Windows CE.

The Sylvania 7" G-Netbook PC uses Windows CE. The only way to install SOFTWARE (not spyware) on it, is downloading only software for Windows CE.

You can find software in internet using google: "windows ce download shareware"

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!
