Help us to help you. Please fill in your system specs.


In the line at the top of you will see UserCP.
That is an abbreviation for User Control Panel.
Click on UserCP.
In the left-hand column, under Your Profile you will see Edit System Spec.
Click on Edit System Spec
You can copy and paste from the output of Speccy, Speccy - System Information - Free Download to fill out much of the info. Be sure to use the Other Info section of your System Specs for such info as your optical drive, your wireless adapter, your speakers, etc.

2nd, go to the Acer website and fetch latest WIN 7 drivers for your specific model. I assume there is some function performed by one of the Function keys that you are "missing".

Let us know what capability you are missing, and we can show you how Win 7 provides that capability.
