To Acer Computer support. I read on Acer site that Acer Aspire comes with Microsoft starter pkge 2010 with limited functions (word and exel) but my new one brought in New Zealand today does not have this. Is that correct? Is there other loaded software I can write documents?

More than likely no, you can use note pad or Word, just go to it free to download.

SOURCE: No LCD connectivity

Hello, I am using a Viewsonic lcd projector with my new Acer Aspire One. I did not have connectivity off the bat. Here's what I did: 1. Downloaded driver (unsigned, not the signed version worked - ie not os-specific) for the lcd projector to the Acer. Restart Acer. 2. With lcd projector connected to Acer, toggle function key & F5. But then, continue holding down the function key. A screen pops up with icons for laptop, laptop/monitor, dual monitor, and lcd projector. You continue to hold down the function key and then press the F5 key to move to the desired device. I had to repeat the same process to restore my Acer screen to the original proportion when not using lcd projector. I'm not sure if both steps 1 and 2 are necessary, but I did it simultaneously, so I'm not sure of the origin of success.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5738g hangs


I too have also bought the aspire 5738.
Mine was also hanging, eventually i sent it back to acer.
The mother board was replaced as it had a faulty north bridge on it.
If your unit is still in warranty get it done as soon as possible.

Try hooking the laptop up to an external monitor, use a vga cable. If the main display has died, the laptop may default a secondary if given the chance. If the laptop sounds like it boots but you can't see a screen on the external display try holding down the Fn key and at the same time tap the F5 key, this will toggle the display from internal to external. If a screen still cannot be seen then you may have lost the video processor on the motherboard.

I just bought a new desktop that has office starter on it. I have office 2007 that i want to load but it is an "update" version. Will this recognize office starter as a registered microsoft...

Microsoft Office Starter is a new product launched by Microsoft that comes only in a version that is pre-installed on certain computers. There are no genuine licensed CD, DVD or download versions of this product. It should therefore actually be Microsoft Office Starter 2010 that you have pre-installed on your computer.

So the simple answer to your question is no. An Office 2007 Update will have no effect on an Office 2010 application. Also, an Office 2007 Upgrade application will probably not install anything at all on your computer unless of course you have genuine licensed versions of Office 2000 or Office 2003 already installed on it that are capable of being upgraded.

Microsoft Office Starter 2010 has a perpetual license (never expires), so it is not immediately obvious why you would feel the need to upgrade it, unless there is a particular Microsoft Office function that you need which is not included in Starter.

Office Starter replaces the various Trial versions of Office that used to come pre-installed on some computers. Office Starter is a reduced functionality version of Office including basic versions of Word and Excel. Neither PowerPoint nor Outlook are available in the Starter format. Word and Excel Starter can be used as they are for an indefinite period of time or can be unlocked to the functionality of various full versions of Office by buying and downloading an activation code from Microsoft. Starter can be used to open any Microsoft Word or Excel documents or spreadsheets and can also be used to perform basic editing of such documents and spreadsheets (a number of sophisticated tools and functions do not feature in Starter and are available only in the full versions of Microsoft Office).

If you do not want or cannot afford to upgrade Starter to a full-function version of Microsoft Office 2010, then a free full-function Office suite application called Open Office is available that is of similar quality to Microsoft Office and can also be used to open edit and manage Microsoft Office documents spreadsheets and databases. Open Office is available to download install and use totally free of charge (like other Open Source applications) from:

Just bought a new laptop and office starter2010 keeps on looking for key code ,it was a pre installed pack

Microsoft Office Starter 2010 is a new, reduced functionality, advertising-supported version of Microsoft Office that replaces Microsoft Works on new computers and acts as a low-cost introduction to the Office 2010 suite of software. The Office Starter 2010 software includes Excel Starter 2010 and Word Starter 2010, which are special versions of Excel and Word with reduced feature sets. Although the feature sets are limited, they have the same look and feel as the Word and Excel in the full Office versions.

I experienced the same problem when upgrading to windows 7. I lost some functionality of the touchpad buttons as well.

There wasn't any explanation for this when I checked the Acer site and the Microsoft site, except that Windows 7 doesn't support all of the old peripherals or accessories or Vista software that may have come with the Vista computers originally.

I have 0ffice 2010 but i have no product key for this......!!!!!!!!!!

If it came pre-installed on your computer odds are it is Microsoft Office 2010 Starter edition, It does not have a product key, if you want to enable other features such as PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, etc... You will need to purchase a license/product key depending on what features you want enabled.

In Starter Edition by default only Word and Exel are enabled and their are features in these two apps that are disabled and are enabled by purchasing a product key.
