Preferred Solution: Does Acer Aspire One netbook D257 have BlueTooth?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I found this by googling Acer Support: Specifications
Open Device Manager from Control Panel to see if BT is listed under there somewhere.

I am trying to reinstall Windows 7 for my cousin on her computer. However, as you shouod know, the netbook doesn't have a cd/dvd drive. So I have created an .iso of the DVD, transfered it with the windows 7 usb dvd tool and tried to use that. I can get into it all, however when I format the partition and try to install windows, I get "Setup was unable to create a new "system partition" or locate an existing "system partition" Any ideas why?

You can download the Acer D257 manuals from here:

Using Instant-on for Android
If you select to boot to the Instant-on system, your computer will
automatically boot the Android operating system each time you turn it
on. If you want to boot directly to Windows, press the <F9> key when
you see the Acer logo after pressing the power button.

hello everybody,
after i reinstall windows 7 home premium on my acer aspire one d257, my ethernet , intenet and video controller say code 28 error also PCI device tha same.
So how can i fix it?
if i have to download some driver? where? and which ones?


A:connection problem of acer aspire one d257

in device managers are there any devices with a yellow ! or ?

you will need to download the drivers from

to identify the correct driver do the following for each item
How to identify hardware in Device Manager

right click on each of the devices with a yellow! or ?

from the menu choose
Click on the Details Tab
Under the Property - drop down
Select hardware ids
Right click and select all
Then right click again and select copy
Copy and paste that information here

You should see a code similar to this


please reply with the full code for your device(s)

The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:


Vendor ID = 8086
Device ID = 008A

Post back those two numbers make sure we know which is vendor ID and which is device ID

These codes can be looked up at this site PCI Vendor and Device Lists

As an example the link for that database tells us that;
Vendor ID code 8086 is for this vendor - Intel Corporation
Device ID code 008A is for this device - Intel Centrino Wireless-N1030

A friend of mine purchased this computer from a Wal-Mart about a year ago. I have noticed that ever since re-installing windows onto this computer, the fan speed is running at (what seems like) 200% all the time. No matter what. I installed a program called Speed Fan and it does not register a fan being in the system at all. It also tells me that my core temperature (right after startup) is at 108 degrees F. That is absolutely absurb. I have ordered and installed a new fan, and the problem is still the same. I have also checked all my drivers, all my windows updates, and my BIOS is up to date. I am completely out of ideas and am close to scrapping the computer. Does anyone have any suggestions?

A:Acer Aspire D257-13450 Fan "Out of Control"

There should be some sort of fan control in the BIOS. In my laptop, in the BIOS, I have only limited options (2), to either to have the fan on low at all times or on high that cycles on and off when a certain temperature is reached (that I can't control). Most laptops off the shelf are low end and really don't have any viable options for control of the internal hardware.

Not sure if this is where I should post this or not. A friend brought me their Acer Aspire one. They let their kids use it. She said one day it just would not boot. I have tried to get it to boot, but it takes forever, then it gives a hi-low-hi-low beep that sounds like the European sirens. I put Windows 7 on a usb drive and set it to boot from the usb, but it still won't boot. It once came up with a option to repair the Windows 7, but it sat there for 10 minutes doing nothing, then started with the beeps again.
Anyone have any ideas on what to do to fix this thing??

Has anyone tried installing windows 10 preview on an old XP netbook? I have one sitting here doing nothing and thought Id give it a try. If anyone has any hints I would surely appreciate it.

A:Windows 10 on Acer Aspire netbook.

As long as your netbook meets all of the system requirements as stated on Microsoft's Windows 10 website (System requirements - Microsoft Windows), then you should be good to go.
But if you don't have a sufficient RAM, an appropriate screen resolution to run Metro apps, and updated drivers, you're bound to run into a whole lot of problems.

We have a netbook that crashed this afternoon - went to the wall paper when we were doing a virus scan

Did the scan - found the virus - deleted the virus - computer monitor went to the wallpaper.

Netbook has been shut down and started back up, several times. Now we get the wallpaper.

I can push F12 and start it in safe mode. But there are no icons and right clicking on the mouse does not bring up the normal menu,

Control Alt Delete brings up the task manager that shows a bunch of stuff happening - but none are shown as icons on the desktop. There is no task bar at the bottom either.

ANY help you can offer - would REALLY be appreciated

Thank you

A:Acer Aspire Netbook Failure

Welcome to BleepingComputer From the description it appears like a failing hard disk. The best option would be to call Acer for a replacement if it is still under warranty.Else do this : Download GParted Live edition (USB or CD). Boot your computer using this. Take a snapshot or write down the details and post here the details of partitions on your laptop.Do not make any changes using GParted. BC experts will guide you further.

I have an old acer aspire one ZG5 which I use as a travel backup. When XP expired I installed win 7 ultimate The problem is win 7 runs very very slow. There is only 1 gb on board memory and apparently cannot be increased.
According to the memory gadget just booting up uses 98% memory and after a long time drops to 68% memory.
Any help how to downgrade win 7 to run a basic win 7 version Basic web browsing/ email/ letters etc.

Thanks Bob

A:How to downgrade win 7 on acer aspire one netbook

Actually I think you are doing well to get Ultimate booted at all with that amount of RAM as usually it requires a minimum of 4GB RAM to operate in any practical way. If I may ask why did you install Ultimate and not Home Premium??

As I cannot find the details for that motherboard it is hard to say how much RAM it will support but I think 2GB should not be out of the question but even that amount is hardly enough. So if you don't mind me asking again where did you get that info from??

The CPU from what I see in the specs for that machine is also inadequate in my mind and is used if I am not wrong in those tiny notepads with the 10" screens and with Windows 7 Starter version.

To be honest and realistic I would be inclined to buy a newer machine and have it set up for yourself because this one looks to be causing you some grief in manner of speaking. In any case there are some good deals on quite decent new laptops and if you don't like the 8 they come with you can always run that in 7 style using a free program to do that of course it is not quite the same but very close.

<>What message is that? Maybe I missed it, but I see no mention of any error message.Running chkdsk in read-only a waste of time. Even though instructed to use the /f parameter, it's better to use /r parameter (/f is included in the functions performed under /r), since /r instructs the system to compensate for data files which may be in bad sectors of the hard drive.In any case...try Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (with space between k and /) and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query/notice and hit Enter. Reboot the system and let the command execute to completion...system will boot into XP when done.You might also take a look in Event Viewer for errors, not information items, which might provide some clues as to what might require attention.How To Use Event Viewer - Your first line speaks of having a virus...then the rest of your post bespeaks of items which no one could logically conceive of as being appropriate treatment of an infected system.I have to ask...which is it, in your mind? A Windows/system problem...or a virus?If freezing of the system is what you consider to be "the problem"....there are many situations that might cause such, with overheating of system the most obvious candidate. Other candidates include malware, corrupt system files, hardware difficulties.Which is why it's important to check Event Viewer for possibly pertinent error messages.Louis

I wasn't aware that the Acer Aspire One Netbook has a System Recovery feature, so I tried to format the hard drive using an external CD/DVD Reader. The Netbook was infected by a big bunch of viruses. Now, I am able to install Windows Vista, but I can't install Windows XP. This model came with Windows XP, but if I try to reinstall it, I will get a blue screen and it will reboot. For some reason I can't comprehend.... I am able to install Vista. What can I do in order to reinstall Windows XP? Is there any program available online that will format the hard drive at a 100% capacity? I don't have the Vista license number, and this model only has 1024 of SDRAM and that is not enough for Vista? Any ideas? Thanks!

I just bought captioned lappy off ebay without OS. I want to install Win XP. It has no dvd drive and I don't have an external drive. I have Win XP pro on a cd, and 7 ultimate on a dvd and as well as it's image in my toshiba laptop. I actually intend to follow the instructions to dual boot but my question is how do i install the first OS on a netbook with no optical drive? Also I don't know if it has a restore from partition, I will check when I get home tonight, but I don't think so.

I'ved never done it with XP, but you may be able to use a USB flash drive.

Microsoft has a downloadble tool to prepare a drive from an .iso, but I don't know that it supports XP.

I have an Acer Aspire One ( AOA 110-1722 ) , this has Xp loaded.
My problem is that I can't boot up - I get to the welcome screen, then the list of Safe Mode , Last known config etc,appears. When I enter anyone of these it goes into disc check. Then the cycle starts again. How can I either reinstall XP I have a CD b which I can use on my desktop, this also has an SD reader. As far as the Acer is concerned there is NO disc drive and I have no remote hard drive - just USB stick and the existing 8 Gb SD memory card.

Your hard drive may be failing. It's possible to get a USB stick to boot a computer, and it's possible to copy XP to a bootable USB stick, and it's possible to get the XP to install from a USB drive. The hard part is getting the installation data to accept your product key.

These netbooks are a real bad idea for this very reason. YOu can try to do all the above, but I wouldn't waste the time. What I would do is buy a usb external CD/DVD drive and use that to get XP reinstalled.

If you have a desktop, you can get the HD installed on the desktop as a secondary drive, and from there possibly run diagnostics and maybe repair utilities to get the HD fixed. You might even be able to image the old drive to a new one and save yourself the trouble and time-expense of trying to get XP reinstalled.

A:acer aspire netbook boot failure

I have two Acer netbooks in the house (different models). The first thing I did was buy an external DVD burner. The next thing I did was go to Programs, Acer, Acer eRecovery Management and burn the recovery DVDs.

Note: this is a radical last resort step because it restores your netbook to how it was when it left the factory. You lose all the programs you have installed, all the windows updates and patches and any programs you have removed because of new computer bloat will be back on your netbook.
You'd hold down the alt key and press F10 when you tirn on the computer. Click Restore Computer to Factory Defaults.

I'd probably recommend a less drastic measure first.
1. Buy an external DVD burner.
2. Get someone running Windows 7 (if that's what you are running) make a repair disk. If your computer is running 64 bit Win 7, the disk has to be made with the same bit-ness.
3. Use the repair disc to see if you can get Windows to boot.

A:Solved: Is Acer Aspire ONE AoA-150 Netbook flashdrive bootable?

I know from personal experience that the netbook is USB
bootable,as I reinstalled windows from a USB cdrom on one.
I can see online that people are restoring from a USB flash drive,
so if your flash drive has a bootable system on it,it should be
a matter of plugging it in,starting the computer and changing
the first boot device to something like USB-HDD if it
doesn't actuall identify the drive itself in the boot list.
Some computers have a quick boot menu that could be used instead.
Usually something like hitting F8 during startup to go to the boot menu.

What are you trying to boot from the flash drive?

Method 1: to 4:

Uses the Win XP CD.

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware on the manufacturer's web site.
If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.

Hi all

Not sure if this has been posted before but running Metro UI needs a minimum resolution of 1024 X768 which IMO seems a bit absurd in view of the large number of netbooks and tablets having a slightly lower resolution like 1024 X 600 which seems to be a common size.

You can "poodle fake" the screen into "down-rezzing" allowing you to use a slightly higher resolution to get round this limit.

Not sure where I got the info from - but thanks anyway to whoever found this out.
It doesn't look too bad on the netbook but if you don't like it then it's easy to change back again.

1) Run regedit
2) Search and modify all values "Display1_DownScalingSupported" from "0" to "1"
3) Restart the system
4) Enjoy with the two new resolutions 1024x768 i 1152x864

A:Acer Aspire One Netbook will not hookup to wireless or wired internet?

Have you checked Device Manager to see if there are any devices listed (especially any network devices) to see if they have a yellow ! next to them to indicate they have a problem? Windows update may have installed a driver that broke things. You could try a system restore to a date prior to the updates.

If that gets you going then you could try reinstalling the updates making sure that you don't allow Windows Update to install updated drivers for your hardware. Driver updates should come from the mfr of the hardware, not MS.

it worked just fine before the reformat and installation, so i dunno what is going on here.
i've tried to install the bluetooth drivers from the acer website to no avail. i keep getting an error stating that no bluetooth device is attached, but my bluetooth usb dongle works just fine. i know i could use the dongle but that would defeat the purpose of having it built in.
this is what i would like to know:
1) why isn't the built in adaptor being recognized
2) where can i find a schematic for the build of my laptop to disconnect and reconnect the dongle manually
3) do i have any other options in terms of how to fix this problem, other than using my usb dongle

What you need to do is to uninstall & delete the original driver (right click on the device in Device Manager and select Properties). Reboot and Windows will try to find the proper driver.

So I got an Apple bluetooth keyboard through the post today, and was really excited to start using it. However, when trying to add the device by going Start>Devices and Printers>Add a Device, my computer doesn't detect the keyboard at all.

I went into my device manager to see if I could find the problem, but it turns out that there is no bluetooth adapter visible there, nor can I seem to find any drivers on my actual computer. I tried downloading all the bluetooth drivers from the acer website, but none of them seem to do anything...

I'm pretty sure my laptop has bluetooth, as this is what the internet has told me, so I would really appreciate any help at all!

I don't have your system. But I know that with the Nov Release of 10, My bluetooth don't work anymore either. When 10240 was released there was no issues. However with the November 10586 after the update it said Sorry this bluetooth wasn't compatible and was removed.  I tried to reinstall the Wireless/Bluetooth Driver but bluetooth still away. Lucky my Wireless part still working....  Maybe it could be the same thing with yours. Or maybe if you give your Wireless/Bluetooth model maybe there is others that have info about a good Driver for your system James PS. Not all systems have everything that is listed in the Drivers list of Acers website. It could be that yours didn't come with the Bluetooth Part

I have a regular Medion laptop where the HD (40 GB) is in 3 partitions, C,D,and E the D and E for backup and recovery and see that the Medion Netbook (160GB HD) has 2 partions C and D for the same purposes. With these laptops come discs -Operating System Installation CD and Application & Support Disc.

Now the Acer Netbook (120GB HD) has just the C drive with no support CDs of any kind so what is the difference in design of the two? Why should Medion computers have all this itty bitty extra stuff and the Acer ( and probably many others) apparently needing none of it? Do the different systems point to weaknesses or strengths in their designs?

I'm rather perplexed - can anyone enlighten me please?

A:Acer Netbook and Medion 97160 Netbook differences

Recovery/restore disks/partitions...are not uniform in the way that they operate. Different manufacturers have different preferences.

Some computer system manufacturers use a recovery/restore mechanism that involves small, additional partitions...some don't.

The respective owner's manual and manufacturer's website should contain exact details of how these mechanisms work.

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.

To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.

Stuff to know:

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

Hi all, I am attempting to install XP on my AOD270 Acer Aspire One netbook,

I have copied an install to USB, and tried integrating the SATA drivers into the install with no luck. I have tried disabled AHCI mode in the BIOS and setting SATA mode to IDE with no luck.

I downloaded the AHCI/SATA driver directly from the Acer support website however, when i import it into nlite it shows it as a display driver?

Any ideas?


A:Aspire ONE netbook installing XP

Installing an old OS on newer hardware can be a serious challenge, particularly with a netbook. The problems you are seeing now are only the tip of the iceberg. A big problem is the lack of XP drivers for newer hardware, most likely not available for your computer. Best to stick with a new OS.

It's a Aspire One 522 netbook. XP is giving me the BSOD during install, which may be due to SATA drivers not being integrated. But when i search for them Acer lists them only for the Windows 7 OS. Is it impossible to install XP on this netbook?

A:Can you install XP on a Aspire One netbook?

I'm assuming that netbook came with Windows 7 Starter Edition or Windows 7 Home Premium pre-installed.

Even if you were to successfully format the hard drive and do a clean install of Windows XP, it's probable that Windows XP drivers don't exist for some or all of that netbook's devices. Have you already checked and confirmed that?

Good morning,

I'm looking to install Windows XP Home as a dual-boot with the pre-installed Windows 7. The netbook is an Acer Aspire One D257. I'm having the typical issue of the Windows XP disk not detecting the SATA hard drive. The BIOS is currently configured for AHCI. When checking the Acer website, it only lists Windows 7 drivers and nothing for XP.

If anyone can point me in the right direction for obtaining the XP driver it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

After looking around, I've determined that what I need specifically are Intel? NM10 Express Chipset drivers for Windows XP, if that helps any more.
