Why my D257 an Aspire is no longer listed or taken in charge on the Acer site?

My Aspire One was bought on 25/11/11 and now I have an opening window on startup stating that the program compatibility Wizard. I wanted more information and decided to check the Acer Web site.

When I try to find information for my particular model, nothing appears. I am told that there is no serial number and number of SNIDS. This means that I can not update the drivers or solve any future problems, I might have. Even if it's just a problem with an operating system, I should be able to verify your site because you sold it me.

It's like "buyer beware"... Acer will not support its products after all just a year. It's how you people feel? If I'm wrong, I apologize again, but I just spent a lot of time on your site and I am quite angry now.


I was on the Acer site and not able to get the drivers for my model. When I entered the necessary information (serial number, etc.), research has produced results "0". I tried references my model name, but once again, nothing. I don't think you can get the downloads or support unless you enter the required information on your device.

Also, I tried to put the information in the "reminder" or page "class actions", knowing my camera wasn't among this category, but I expect everything related to my needs, and then I was sent to the Packard Bell registration page, where I decided to not sign up.

Thanks for the reply. I will use the links you provided, and I hope that this will make me there. Thanks for your help!

ADDENDUM: I've followed your provided links and voila! He found my system. That's all what I've tried to find the other day, when I spent hours searching. NONE of this was available. NONE. It was perhaps a little problem with the site that day, but, I'm a very intelligent person... and he wasn't there. That's why I found in this forum and found others with the same problem.

Thanks for all the help.

  • TB 31.5.0 Win 7 after the TAB key for the automatic update no longer creates new address line "write" (enter the done key) but I want the TAB key! Why this keep happening after

    TB 31.5.0 Win 7 after the TAB key for the automatic update no longer creates new address line "write" (enter the done key) but I want the TAB key! Why is - this seems to happen after each automatic update? Cant we get 'option' to use the TAB key to navigate through the lines of address "write"?

    TAB through the fields that exist. It is the function of the TAB.

    Otherwise you could never use TAB to go out in a field for example: subject. It would create an indefinate number of fields and are unable to function as a TAB key.

    TAB does not back to THE fields,
    New crests to THE fields or donkey typing/selection enter/return address, you can use the selection of mouse click.

  • Why backup with Xperia companion take so long? (2 days)


    why backup with this tool takes so long. The information bar, says phone has 15 GB. After 24 hours, about half is saved. Make backups with other tools is done in less than an hour :/

    Everyone knew what goes wrong?

    THX a lot.




    I live in France and I have the same problem with the Xperia for Windows companion software. I bought the new XA Xperia a week ago. I connected with USB on my computer, I started companion Xperia and I launched the backup point. I selected all the boxes (documents, contacts, photos, videos, music). The backup process took several hours (4 hours precisely) and stopped at about 50% without any error message. So I cancelled the process of backup at this stage.

    I tried a new backup process by selecting only 'music' backup piece (I 314 music this cost 1.3 GB on the Xperia XA) and here, it worked and the backup process took about 5 minutes and finished.

    So, there's a big problem with the companion software when all the boxes of the savepoint are checked.

    I contacted Xperia Care France and Xperia care told me this very short message: "(1) (download the software companion Xperia 2) (plug the Xperia XA your computer 3) launch of the companion software and follow instructions on the companion show...» »

    For example, to get help, I write this message on this forum for Xperia. Please help me or tell me which Android App that I can use to back up my data (contacts, documents, settings, photos, music, videos).

  • Why isn't Adobe reader is no longer let me view previously (from Safari) download pdf? I am running OSX 10.8.5 and uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version of the player?

    Why isn't Adobe reader is no longer let me view previously (from Safari) download pdf? I am running OSX 10.8.5 and uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version of the player. I get this error message "Adobe Reader could not open 'OD Test Bed Proposals_0.pdf' because it is not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an attachment to e-mail and has not been correctly decoded)."  I tried to change the options 'open with' too.

    Try this:

    Restart Safari. You can now download the PDFs intact.

  • When I click on address book I no longer get the slot to insert a name, instead a long list of names/addresses

    I sent this way new emails (not responses): click on address book. Place comes the space to insert a name. I do, find the name (among some close to it), select it and then click on "write". The result is an email address, which I proceed to write and send. But since there is one day, when I click on the address book, what appears is a long list of names and email addresses. It fills most of the screen of the iMac. And there is no space to insert a name.
    Without doubt, I did something stupid to get there. What have I done? And how I turn the tide?
    Thank you.

    This isn't answering your question on what is wrong.

    I think that the address book is a pretty lame place to start.

    Click on write or reply or forward and window of writing messages appears. pre-populated with the text of the previous message if it is a reply or forward.

    If you select the To: box and start typing, it will feature names in the address book corresponding to what you typed.

    If you really prefer to choose from a list, you can open a Contacts Sidebar which lists one of your address books. There are buttons to add Contacts selected to your message. You can drag and drop and use right click too. On a PC, F9 opens this sidebar, or you can use alt + v to get the view menu and choose the Contacts Sidebar in the submenu. I don't know how much it works on Mac.

    It is so easy to add multiple addresses. You can set them as Cc or BCC.

    Your method allows you to send a new message, but does not support the answer or transfer. It penetrates into all recipients regarding: and you have to change one by one, if that is not appropriate.

    You see why I think that the address book is a bad place to start from?

    If this alternative approach does not work then I suggest that corrupted address book. You have a recent backup to restore from?

  • When I select recently bookmarked it works ok, but when I select unsorted bookmarks it opens a window not closing cycles for a long time.and I want to close the window manually and not automatically

    When I use the selection recently marked with a bookmark in bookmarks, it works very well and load the page quickly and opens another window. but when I go to unsorted bookmarks and double-click on the desired bookmark it loads very slowly and cycles for a long time. If I go to the firefox icon in the Launcher on natty 11.04 with unity it shows two open windows. I click on the unsorted Bookmarks window and manually stop and it works well and unordered finishes, loading the bookmark page I was trying to see. Why the unsorted Bookmarks window closes on its own? Is there a setting I can do close automatically. It really slows down the loading of the page, I tried to see. well thank you for any help or advice.

    Create a new profile as a test to see if your profile is the source of the problems.

    See basic troubleshooting: make a new profile:

    There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "tools > Modules > Extensions & Plugins" in case there are still problems.

    If this new profile works then you can transfer files from the old profile to the new profile (be careful not to copy corrupted files)

  • I was sent here to discover if the Acer Aspire switch Alpha can if run win 10 32-bit

    Has anyone used Acer Aspire Alphas with 32-bit Windows 10 switch successfully? We were asked to change the operating system to a customer, and I wanted to know its possible before starting.

    On the acer switch 10, it has a 64-bit processor, but uses 32-bit windows, so I know not 32-bit windows can run with 63 - bit, but it may be unstable, because it was not desinged for this material. also, some drivers are no longer available for the 64-bit. In conclusion, you can install 32-bit windows on 64-bit computers, but beware of pilots not taken in charge and bugginess.

    Hi everyone, I hope that there is someone out there who can help me. I have an Aspire 571 V3 that I picked up at the factory settings, or so I thought. After all the files had been cleared and the system recovered it restarted and displayed a black screen with 'the installation program starts services' and a flashing light below are progressing. It has been that way for hours eight (8). is this normal or should I worry? In its current form, I have no control on the machine on the touch pad or mouse. I have provided with Currys computer recovery discs, but they are not to be recognized.


    8 hours is a little too, you can try to stop it and repair the resumption of the process.

    do a long press on the power button to stop it

    at the next startup, press Alt + F10, and then check if you are able to start the Acer recovery process

    If it isn't

    Enter the BIOS by pressing F2 at startup

    enable F12 boot menu if not already enabled

    Save and exit

    put your first recovery disk on your laptop

    stop your laptop making the long press the power button / stop

    at the next startup, press F12, and then on the startup list select DVD/CD player
