Hello and welcome to just answer
do you have any other computer with a disk drive?
you can transfer the contents of the disk by the two methods
tell me how
i thought I could download the information from the web
1. By using any other computer. Insert the disk in that computer, right click disk drive letter and select OPEN. Selecting all the contents by pressing Ctrl + A and then copying all of them with Ctrl + C
I don't have another computer
insert a Flash USB drive in that comnputer and transfer the contents to it. insert the USB flash to your computer and run the setup
2. use a USB Disk Drive. connect the USB Disk drive to your acer netbook and install the drivers
the third option is to download the drivers
Fine, but I still do't have another comuter
then you have the 2nd and third option
let me see if we can download the drivers
do you have windows xp
please go to this link and at the bottom, you will see a small table a
and a download link in the right most corner
DO NOT PRESS THE LARGE DOWNLOAD button
i.e. the one in green
I've got this gian ad over mostof the page.
Driver name Linksys ae1200 is that what I should click?
when you click the "download" link in the right bottom corner, you will again get the same page but this time, there will be a download link with an image and download written over it
click this link please to download the file
oem5 is what downloaded what next?
insert the USB adapter and see if it asks you for the drivers
the hardward was not installed because it couldn't find the necessary software
give me a minute please
please go to the above quoted link
then click the DOWNLOAD tab
then click the DROP DOWN and select Version 1.8
Not really Do I select the hard drive or version 1
select version 1
this will enlist all the drivers for windows xp, vista and 7
and license agreement?
download the drivers for windows xp by clicking the DOWNLOAD link
should the gizmo be plugged in?
once the drivers are download, plug in the usb and install the drivers then ( from the downloaded file)
I have a file XP
is it a zip file?
It has 9 files in that XP folder, I should plug the things in a pray?
No it is a folder
yes plug in the USB and run the SETUP ( or similar) file
Cannot install because of it can't find software
software needs to be installed
can you tell me the name of the files in the folder?
Do I need to open all the files in the folder.
give me a minute
when you plug in the USB, do you get a box asking you to install the drivers from a specific location etc.?
please UNPLUG the USB, right click MY COMPUTER and select PROPERTIES
yes it asked me to put in the disc it recommends letting it install automatically, there is another option Install from a list of specific locations
please select INSTALL FROM A LIST OF SPECIFIC LOCATIONS and press next
ignore my second last message
tell me when you have selected install from a list of specific locations
That's good because there is no specific location
now what is the next screen?
do you see any BROWSE button?
There isn't a specific location to click
unplug the USB and re-insert it. tell me the options one by one and we will move forward then
install from disc or install from a list of a specific location
Oops at list or of specific location
select Install from a list of specific locations
and then press the next button
There was no list of specific location list whne I right clicked My Computer
now need to BROWSE to the folder of XP which you have downloaded
Where do I brouse. It is on the tool bar at the bottom
please close this windows here
follow me now
1. click MY COMPUTER and select PROPERTIES
2. Click the HARDWARE tab and then click DEVICE MANAGER button
3. now plug in the USB and see what new item is added to the list ( it should contain a yellow mark or similar). right click it and select INSTALL DRIVER ( or similar). Now browse to the XP folder which you have downloaded to install the driver
Update, uninstall, disable, can for hardward changes
Do I hit install or advanced
now select "install for a list or specific location"
Cannot install because it can find software
i am grateful to you for your patience
we should re try the previous method
please close these windows
unplug the usb and re-plug it
Should I uninstall and reinstall
from the appearing window, select install for a list or specific location
unplug the usb, re-plug it and you will get the same windows on which we were working previously
select "install for a list or specific location" and press the NEXT button
Boy that give me lots of options
what are those?
D:\MFL_PRO (D)\driver\win2kxp\usa and others
click the BROWSE button and go to the location where you have download the XP folder
I unmarked the exterior drive
said it was not corretly installed and to reinstall, I'm doing that now
Same error message
then i will advice you to bring a USB Disk Drive and install the drivers from the disk you have. i think that is the best option with you
you can borrow the USB disk drive from a friend or a relative
or if you can buy, it will be an asset for you if you continue to use a netbook
Do I still have to pay for this - your time?
that is up to you. there is not obligation as such. if you consider this worth a try, you can pay, otherwise you can just leave the conversation here.
I already gave them my credit card number
that amount will only be transfered to my account if you press Accept button
Thank you very much for coming to just answer
have a nice day
