So I bought an acer aspire one netbook from a friend, the netbook was reformatted and is now running windows 7 ultimate 32 bit which I think is a bit too much for the netbook to run smoothly, I've already posted the fast draining of the battery which has been addressed, the problem now is that the netbook is really slow and it can't play 1080 resolution movies, youtube vids can't play well and I've also noticed that the netbook is hot even though it's sitting on  netwbook stand with an exhaust fan, would it be better to reformat the netbook to windows XP again? any thoughts will be appreciated.

 

By the way, I tried to set the netbook back to factory settings by pressing Alt + F10 during the boot up with the Acer logo however it does not go to recovery mode, it just makes a long beeping sound and boots normally.

 

Thank you!

 Netbooks have never been known for blazing speed, so I can't say I'm surprised.  However you didn't post any specs for it, so I can't go into any depth.  I will say that you ought to try Ubuntu or Mint Linux because they perform a lot better than Windows on computers with less resources.  You can put them on a flash drive and boot from them in trial mode without having to install anything.  They will detect your network, connect to the Internet, and they come with Firefox installed and ready to run.

 

Good luck.

  Windows 7 in only 1 GB is an exercise in masochism.  :axe:  Unless you have 2 GB or more, you really aren't going to get decent performance with Windows 7.  Linux on the other hand would probably run pretty well. :thumbup2:
