You will find all the drivers originally installed on the Acer site click here you will probably use the D250 drivers.

Incidentally if you connect the netbook with a LAN cable it's probable that all the correct drivers will be installed if you activate Windows Update.

You should be able to get the necessary drivers from Acer via click here:

In the above link choose Netbook > Aspire One > AOD255. Then select 'Windows 7 Ultimate x32' next to Operating System (you installed the 32-bit version, right?).

To be up-to-date, download & install the following:

- Chipset Driver
- Audio Driver
- LAN Driver
- VGA Driver
- Wireless LAN Driver
- Anything else you think is applicable, but once online you can download them directly on the netbook

If the netbook has no optical drive, you must have a USB flash drive in order to transfer the necessary files to the netbook.

Once you have them on the netbook, unzip the files one at a time & click on their executable (usually Setup) to install. If some don't have any executable, let us know & we'll tell you how to install them. G

So I guess the installations went ahead with no errors at all?

What does it now say in Device Manager regarding the ethernet & network controllers, or other missing items? G

I think you might entually revert back to the Win 7 Starter pack 'cause Win 7 Ultimate is just too much for a netbook CPU and shortage of memory as specs stand at the mo.
