Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

Can't backup my harddrive

\015 I have just purchased the Acer Aspire One AOA 150-155 with Windows XP from Micro Center in Dallas. It will not allow me to make a CD backup of my harddrive. I do not want to use the remote backup service and pay an additional $43/year. I followed all the directions for the Acer emaintance, but it only reinstalls the factory install. Can anyone tell me who to contact at Acer or how to make a CD backup from one of these notebooks.\015\012ML Dallas\015

Answers :

I work at a computer repair shop, and we use norton ghost all the time. Its very easy to use and I would definatly reccommend it. As for a backup CD, you would need an external cd or dvd burner which costs between $50-100. Another solution is to complety wipe your hard drive and install windows fresh. This would remove all the factory installed programs as well as all your data so back it up! I hope this helped you.
Use nero software to backup you harddrive, if this doesnt work, try norton ghost...
