First things first
We would like to thank you for making an Acer notebook your choice for
meeting your mobile computing needs.
Your guides
To help you use your Acer notebook, we have designed a set of guides:
First off, the setup poster helps you get started with setting up your computer.
The Aspire One Series Generic User Guide contains useful information applying
to all models in the Aspire One product range. It covers basic topics such as
Acer's eRecovery Management, using the keyboard, audio, etc. Please
understand that due to its nature, the Generic User Guide as well as the
AcerSystem User Guide will occasionally refer to functions or features which are
only contained in certain models, but not necessarily in the model you have
purchased. Such instances are marked in the text with language such as "only
for certain models".
The Quick Guide introduces you to the basic features and functions of your new
computer. For more on how your computer can help you to be more productive,
please refer to the AcerSystem User Guide, which contains detailed information
on such subjects as system utilities, data recovery, expansion options and
troubleshooting. In addition it contains warranty information and the general
regulations and safety notices for your notebook. It is available in Portable
Document Format (PDF) and comes preloaded on your notebook. Follow these
steps to access it:
1 Click on
Start > All Programs > AcerSystem.
2 Click on AcerSystem User Guide.
Note: Viewing the file requires Adobe Reader. If Adobe Reader is not
installed on your computer, clicking on AcerSystem User Guide will run the
Adobe Reader setup program first. Follow the instructions on the screen to
complete the installation. For instructions on how to use Adobe Reader,
access the Help and Support menu.
