I like apparently so many others have found out that Dell ain't the only computer company that doesn't care about it's users, I bought a dell and now have a ten pound paperweight, so like a fool I tried another company ,Acer and learned that acer doesn't even have support in this country because if the did the various state's attorney generals would force them to help us, the main problem with the aspire is that it uses a FAT 32 File system which allocates a large chuck of your file space for every program you do load and the ssd drive gets used up with like 4 program loads no matter how many mgs or kbs you actually use any he would be greatly appreciated , I saw tankgirls post but don't think I could do it myself, HELP!!!!!

Hi I have the Acer Aspire One notebook model AOA110-AB, when I try and download the updates it comes with with error message about the information file being wrong and re-try updates to fix the problem, the problem is this message is the only thing I get. Also I cannot use the webcam unless I want to stare at myself all night. I am using the built in messenger and my friends use Msn live messenger, they have tried to invite me for a webcam view but nothing happens either end, I cannot even see their request. I am linux (i think this is right).

Thanks x

to get your webcam working on an acer aspire one you need to download an rpm called snack,install this and all should be well as with the updates I to am having problems but I open up a terminal and type yum install updates and this seems to do the job
