Need help re Acer Travelmate Notebook with Linux
I’m trying to help my sister-in-law in Canada fix her notebook computer. I’m in NY so I’m planning to walk her through via webcam. (She borrowed her roommate’s notebook to webcam.)
She bought her Acer Travelmate 3270 in Taiwan. It came with Linux. She is now having constant problems with the notebook rebooting by itself. It sounds like she may need to reinstall Linux. The only CD that came with the Travelmate is the “Resource CD”.
My questions are:
1) Does the Resource CD contain Linux? Can the Travelmate be restored to its factory default condition from the Resource CD?
2) Can Windows XP be installed on the Travelmate 3270? (I have licenses for different flavors of XP and I can send her a CD.)
I am a techie but have no experience with Linux – only Windows (XP, Vista, etc.)
Any information appreciated. Thanks!
