I have an acer aspire AST180 UA381B and I need the system restore disks but they do not carry them anymore. What can I do?


I would suggest you install Linux Mint 10, a free operating system.

Without the restore disks,you would have to buy a new Windows CD. Have a friend burn an ISO image of Linux Mint. Just go to www.linuxmint.com, and there are lots of helpful tips there on how to install. Linux Mint has a similar feel to Windows, so it should be good!

Had dual boot with linux, lose my XP. I have the 5 cd recovery disk, but I can not install my XP back.


  • Hello charlieri_1, this happens often when installing 'new' OS, especially when creating a "Dual Boot." What you will have to do is a "Clean Install" starting from scratch; unfortunately! You will have to use the "Recovery Disk" to install Windows XP, first! Next, after you have restore the XP [OS]; then you will install the more "Updated" OS, [Linux] "This is just the Operating System way of order; oldest first, latest last, to properly install the OS. Hope this helps you, thanks paul7of9."

My printer is not working


Assuming the printer is plugged into the wall outlet and also into your pc's usb port or printer port, this is usually a driver issue.

If you are using windows it's just a matter of either inserting the driver disc that was packaged with your printer, or if you have none, getting one online.

The best bet is to download the driver directly from the source, ie, getting a hp printer driver from www.hp.com, or a lexmark printer driver from www.lexmark.com.

If for some reason your driver isnt available from the manufacturer's website, you can usually get it from driverguide.com

driverguide.com is a frustrating site, tons of ads, you have to sign up for a free account, and they hide the download links at the bottom of the page in small font so you have to find your way through the ocean of ads, but they have a very large driver database.

If you have a linux os like ubuntu, you may be out of luck. as i am writing this I am also using linux. the battle beetween the Microsoft community and the Linux one has left some hardware without a driver in linux operating systems.

Acer Desktop crashing


Hi,
This could be an operating system fault ( Windows/Linux ) But more likely a Hardware or external connected device error.
Solution 1:) try re-installing Windows.

Solution 2:) remove any external add ons, printer/USB devices et,c. And run the computer without Them.
If the computer runs without error, you can pinpoint a faulty external or addon device.
