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 Aspire Series Generic User Guide contains useful information applying to all
models in the Aspire 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.
