Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

I have subscribed to Comcast for internet service and they sent me a disc to install the download but there is no way I can insert this large disc into the acer. What can I do?


Answers :

Don't spend money on a new external drive. The disc is best used as a coaster for a drink. It's whole job in life is to provision the modem, in other words it tells the system who is using the modem and places it on your acct. I am a tech at Comcast. Simply call us and ask us to manually provision your modem. It takes about 4 minutes. The disc does contain some drivers for using USB ports but an ethernet port setup runs best and every computer speaks the ethernet language. Hope it helps.
Buy an external CD drive. It plugs into your USB port and allows you to play "Large Disks"
