    Acer Aspire Revo

    How would i load my AOL/Printer/Wireless Dongle onto this if it doesn't have a CD/DVD Drive?
    I'm VERY inexperienced at this type of thing.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Thanks ukpbz :thumbsup:

    For the printer and wireless dongle I'd usually just download the drives so you have the latest ones.

    ISP CDs as a rule are a bad idea and don't do anything except install a load of rubbish, although I've no experience with AOL's.

    If you're inexperienced then do you know what the Aspire Revo is? You don't want to buy one and then find out it's not what you wanted.

    Thanks 'Endless'.
    Do i just search for the drivers in Google to download them?
    How would i get AOL onto the comp. without the CD?
    I don't really play 'Games', just normal surfing & MS Office stuff.

    This probably sounds like i'm taking the P!ss, but i'm not.

    Go to the appropriate manufacturer's website. So for the wireless card it'd be Netgear, Belkin etc. while for the printer it'd be HP, Cannon, Epson etc.

    If you want AOL's software and they don't offer it as a download you will need the CD (or a copy of it's contents on a USB stick) but ISP software in general isn't required for the internet and web to work, just input your wifi password or connect the ethernet cable and off you go.

    As for 'normal surfing and MS Office stuff'. This is not a good choice for a main computer. While it'll do what you want now, it is a lot slower than a normal desktop so if you're expecting it to keep up you'll be replacing it in three years instead of six.
