New hard drive, same ‘ol laptop

On June 26, 2008, in news, by

Well here I am finding the necessary drivers for my rebuilt/new hard drive Acer Travelmate C110 that I love.  If you remember the hard drive in it did the lovely click click click of death.  So here I am setting my baby laptop back up and one thing you have to dig up from somewhere is the special button program that ensures you don’t crash a plane and interfere with their navigational system because the wireless stays on otherwise.

The trick (if I remember it right from the last time I did this) was to find the Vista button launch manager program from a different Acer product and use it/edit the buttons to control the wireless button.

It’s telling me I have to reboot to see if I did this right..

Oh yeah, that’s the right one…. Good I won’t be responsible for crashing a plane..

  1. might be a good idea to take all those drivers and burn em to a CD or copy to an old small flash drive and keep it with the media for the tablet for future use 🙂

    Hard to believe Kevin didn’t mention this – why do you not have this laptop backed up to your WHS? Don’t you get a red house in your tray letting you know you’re behind in your backups?
