    doesnt have a disk drive!

    Had this happen to mine. I went onto you tube and there is video showing you how to do it. Or try the acer guy. Its just a matter of getting the info from the disk onto memory stick and rebooting the system.

    Not everyone is as computer savvy as you and do you really have to be so rude to someone who is not as computer literate as yourself. ?

    is it this…tml
