can't since there is no OS on it now since I took the HD out and made it external via enclosure.

its really bad specwise as well. only 512MB ram and now only a 30 GB HD in it and the processor overheats so bad. its like a dell now but its an acer.

also..... its silly as ****

also brands do matter becuase i avoid certain brands of laptops anyways becuase of extra problems not related to gaming.

Well, yes, we all do stay away from certain brand names. It depends on many more things then just the board. Cooling, for one.

Hi. I'm from the Windows 7 Professional outreach team and I'd recommend putting Win7Pro on your new laptop. To make sure you know everything it is capable of, please see information on features, case studies and videos at And to understand how Windows XP Mode works (which may be useful to you for playing old games), please see Windows XP Mode helps you run many older Windows XP applications in Windows 7.
