all of the CD's that came w/ your hardware were drivers (and sometimes some demo software)
all of this stuff you can get online. Often you can get more updated versions of the software than whats on the disks.
all the critical drivers, windows will load when you first turn on the PC, but to get the improved/updated drivers you'll have to go to their website.
Thank you that's good to hear, my sister hopes to get 2 more years use. I upgraded the onboard video with a VC which helped it run better for gaming.
The Win XP Pro 32bit OEM I own, I purchased Win7 64bit OEM for my 1 year old build.
I feel the Acer will behave better if I do not reinstall all the Acer junkware...do you agree with this...or would you recommend the Acer recovery disc w/Vista?
Thank you for the Help,
