I know that having an external is easier, but I would VERY strongly prefer to have a good internal... I appreciate the tip, Brett, but I don't want another usb device floating around my backpack (as they tend to get broken...).
I know a guy who does computer repairs who could do it for me. I just need to know what card to order.
did you contact acer since this laptop got windows 8 it must be still under warranty .
I don't have the laptop yet. My previous Acer had the problem and I have seen numerous complaints from *other* users who already have the laptop and the exact same problem.
that acer laptop you put on is having a broadcom chipset google the name and you will have all the specs .
