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
computer.
The Aspire Generic User Guide contains useful information applying to all
models in the Aspire product series. It covers basic topics such as using the
keyboard and audio, etc. Please understand that due to its nature, the Generic
User Guide as well as the AcerSystem User 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 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. 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.
