  • Running Windows 7 on the Acer Aspire One | Writing, life and other animals
    computer So not without a twinge of regret I created a bootable Windows 7 USB stick and took the plunge replacing Ubuntu with the latest offering from Microsoft Boy am I glad that I did I was a bit worried about performance on the Aspire One s atom processor with 1GB of Ram but Windows 7 seems to fly and everything just works Here are the only issues I experienced and they were easily resolved WiFi drivers needed updating to after the install to connect to my WPA2 protected home network I just plugged the computer into the router with an ethernet cable and let windows built in troubleshooter search for and install the necessary driver files Simple To get scrolling working on the touchpad I had to download and install the Synaptics touchpad driver Again a simple two minute job Finally I had to download and install the drivers for the AA1 s media card readers from the Aspire support site That was it everything else from the display to the sound card to the webcam all worked flawlessly out of the box Best of all the software I use every day runs flawlessly too and my mobile broadband dongle installed a treat keeping me connected and productive wherever I go If you have a hard drive version of the Acer Aspire One with 1GB of RAM and a spare copy of Windows 7 lying around give it a whirl trust me you ll be glad that you did Be Sociable Share Tweet Share this Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related Posted by Calvin at 14 54 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your Comment You may use these HTML
