Put a Windows XP disk (has to be the full version not an upgrade) into the CD drive and the computer will ask to "press any key to boot from CD". Press a key. Follow the prompts, It is important to delete the partition when asked. Then recreate it. Format the drive with NTFS file system. The setup will go on to reinstall windows automatically.

Now, the only challenge is to reload any software drivers for components Windows does not find automatically. This is a little tricky. Do google search of Acer drivers or go to www.drivers.com.

Also, remember all your software programs need to be re-installed. For example, your Microsoft Office (word, excel, etc). Any games, any virus protection, Quickbooks, etc. The printer software also needs to be re-installed. Hopefully you still have the original disk or if its a Hewlett Packard go to their website.

That message is because the laptop is trying to boot through the network. You have to change the boot order in the BIOS, and put on first place the hard drive. Press the F2 key just before turning on the laptop. You should go to the bios program. On the bios, search for the Boot tab-move with the directional keys- you should see something like this: http://slackworld.berlios.de/2007/images_vmware/vm-bios-cdrom-boot.png. Press F5/F6 to move the hard drive on top. Then press F10 key, hit "Y" and then "enter". The laptop will reboot and it should boot through the hard drive-on which you have windows. If with hard drive on top, you still get that messsage, you will have to reinstall windows-it means that the files in the hard drive are corrupted- or replace the hard drive.

OK look for any winnt,sif file, usually windows\system32 Anyway you should find your product key there, in the body of the text, open .sif with notepad, IF you can search this file.

Otherwise you have a big problem. You will have to get a windows key generator... if XP.
Or try a reinstall, if, Vista, Win 7, with OUT a key, and then find it and then enter it. .

Made a video showing how I reverted back to Windows 7. The way I did it is only available for a month after the Windows 10 upgrade but I also show other ways to go back.

Bluetooth is a system and one does not 'download' it. It connects bluetooth devices together, called pairing. Drivers are available from the manufacturers web site.

do an uninstall from your control panel

sounds like a boot error, usually caused by moving files you shouldnt move or viruses deleting important files, in either case... you should be able to do a complete system restore, when the screen comes on, press the f2 button or whichever one says to push for the e recovery manager, select system restore, not just a restore point, and follow the recovery wizard, hope this helps.

What does "Learning" mean to me under the topic of Aspire One Netbook? "Learning" means that an Aspire One Netbook with 1.66GHz, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive is way under powered to run Windows 7 that it originally came with. "Learning" for me is that after I dual partitioned the hard drive on my Aspire One that the Microsoft 7 became faster at 90 GB space, and the Linux Kubuntu 11 runs well.
