meeting your mobile computing needs.
Your guides
To help you use your Acer notebook, we have designed a set of guides:
First off, the Just for Starters...poster helps you get started with setting up your

The printed TravelMate Series Generic User Guide contains useful information
applying to all models in the TravelMate product series. It covers basic topics
such as Acer’s Empowering Technology, using the keyboard, Audio, etc. Please
understand that due to its nature, the Generic User Guide as well as the
AcerSystem User’s Guide mentioned below will occasionally refer to functions
or features which are only contained in certain models of the series, but not
necessarily in the model you purchased. Such instances are marked in the text
with language such as "only for certain models".
The printed 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's Guide. This guide 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's Guide.
Note: Viewing the file requires Adobe Reader. If Adobe Reader is not
installed on your computer, clicking on AcerSystem User's 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,
