I have a Nikon L22 coolpix camera, i have the cd that came with it but i have a netbook and can't use the cd to Download software. where can i get the software for free so i can put it on my acer...


Hi!

Nikon doesn't offer the software for free download.
But there are many ways to get your software installed from disk. I also have a netbook without optical drive:
1.The simplest way is to ask a friend to copy all CD content on a memory stick, then you can install the software from this stick.

2. You can also use a USB external CD/DVD, and connect it to your netbook.

3. Other way is more complicated but also works: if you have another computer with CD/DVD, you can share this drive via network and map it on your netbook. Then you can use the CD/DVD drive as connected directly to your netbook.


Hope it helped.

Trying to install my copy of word on netbook without cd


  • Insert a blank memory stick or card into a USB port of a computer that has a CD drive.
  • Place your Microsoft Word software CD into the CD drive of your computer.
  • Hold down the "Shift" key as you close the CD drive. This will prevent the CD from automatically installing Microsoft Word on the computer.
  • Open the CD drive. The files that are on the CD will appear in a window. Click on the first file that appears. Then hold down the "Shift" key and click on the last file so that you select all of the files.
  • Release the "Shift" key. Then hover your mouse over any file and right-click. Select the "Copy" option from the context menu.
  • Open the memory stick. Hover your mouse over the memory stick window and right-click. Select the "Paste" option to copy the files onto your memory stick. Close the memory stick and right-click on the memory stick icon with your mouse. Select the "Eject" choice from the menu to safely remove the memory stick.
  • Insert thememory stick into the USB slot of your netbook.
  • Open the memory stick . The top of the screen should have an Setup.exe icon. Double-click on this file to begin the process of installing Microsoft Word.

    I already have the 2007 version of Publisher and want to activiate it on my netbook. It does not have a cd drive.


    Purchase a USB memory-stick, and take it and the Microsoft Publisher CD/DVD disk to a computer that does have a CD-drive. Copy all the files from the disk to the memory-stick.
    Take the memory-stick back to your computer, and install from the files on the memory-stick.

    If you have a USB memory stick (Flash Drive) you can copy the contents of the CD to that and then run the setup program from there. If you don't have a PC with a CD drive you could ask a friend/colleague to copy the cd onto the stick for you.

    My aspire one netbook says ntldr is missing. problem is it does not have any cd drive or floppy drive so how can I get passed this problem?


    This is common of a virus/malware attack. Really you could do with an external cd drive to run a antivirus boot disk and then use a repair cd to copy over a clean ntdlr file.
    Otherwise (if running xp) there are ways of getting XP onto a memory stick to run the repair, search google for XP Memory Stick and you should find a guide.
    But really this is a job for a technician (like us at MCSLondon) who could do this for you quickly and cheaply, if you are confident then try the repair option with the memory stick but be careful not to install over your data.
    A technician would take our your hard drive and put in a new one, then install a fresh operating system onto that, and then transfer across your data from the old hard drive.

    Use a computer with a CD/DVD drive and a USB port. Insert an USB memory stick into this computer, and also insert the Nortons CD into this computer. Copy the contents of the Nortons CD onto the USB memory stick.
    Remove the USB memory stick and insert it into the Dell mini's USB port and then install Nortons from this USB memory stick.

    There are two methods to install the printer driver.
    1. Purchase or borrow an USB external CD/DVD drive connect it to the mini laptop's USB port and install the software from this drive.
    2. Use a different computer and copy the contents of the CD to an USB memory stick and then plug it into the mini laptop's USB port and install the software from this USB memory stick.
