I have a little Acer Aspire One AOD270 netbook. Despite the OEM specs saying it only supports up to 2GB RAM, if you install a 4GB stick then it makes 2.99GB available to the OS. That and an SSD is enough to make it capable of running anything up to Windows 11, as in post #1,062 here...
Bug fixes and Improvements v8.1.7378 - 13th February 2023
Some customers have reported a slower backup speed to mechanical HDD. This has been improved.
Incorrect transfer rates were reported for split file...
With just 1GB RAM it would be, and unfortunately this model has its RAM soldered in - it cannot be upgraded.
Go to Control Panel > System and click 'Advanced system settings'. Click the Settings button in Performance. Select 'Adjust for best performance' to de-select all options. You may want...
My first career was as an electronics engineer. When I got my first PC on my desk it was running Windows 3.1, then shortly after got upgraded to Windows for Workgroups 3.11. I got really proficient at tweaking it for maximum available memory, with EMM386 and loading drivers high. I soon became...
If you think that was fun/nostalgic then you should try Win'95 or WfW 3.11. I have both running as VirtualBox VMs, networked and everything.
On another machine I have XP, win7, Win 8.1 Hyper-V VMs. They can all see each other and their shares.
That probably because by default Edge is loaded into memory at start up, before you even open it. It's called Startup boost.
The Dell Update Application is in fact one of the drivers available for download on the Dell Support site for your Dell Inspiron 15R special edition.
You're welcome, sorry I couldn't be of more help. My first port of call looking for drivers would be Intel Support, they seem to keep legacy drivers available for a long time.
Sorry, but it looks like there is no longer any support for the acer aspire 8930G on the Acer Support site. Although there is still a support page for it, there's nothing there - not even manuals.
Seems that being a 2009...
Yes, this website is not going anywhere. As long as members ask questions there will be other members answering them. The sister-site Seven Forums is still very active, and even Vista Forum gets regular posts.
If you can run W8.1 you are still able to upgrade to W10, which will remain in...
Oh I didn't pay for the ISO, it's free to download ;)
In fact I don't think I've ever bought anything from MS. My machines were all bought as used. Any OS license fee would have been paid by the OEM, so that could be said to be paid indirectly by the original purchaser. Likewise my various...
Probably not. None of the Windows 7 ESU update are available there, not publicly anyway.
Apparently the procedure for Windows 7 was that you had to install the E.xtended Security Updates (ESU) Licensing Preparation Package, then enter your purchased ESU MAK key. Only then would you have access...
Not quite - DOS was an entire operating system, with a command line interpreter named COMMAND.COM. From Windows XP onwards the underlying OS is Windows NT, with a CMD.EXE interpreter that supports the same command set as DOS.
