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 Just for Starters... poster helps you get started with setting up your
computer.
The 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 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.
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
