    I looked through all the specific models for the AS5250 and they all ship with Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit. If you go the system properties (shortcut keys: press the Windows key and pause break) what does it show as the installed operating system?


    It should list the Windows edition at the top, and in the middle you'll see "system type" and that will tell you either 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. If you have more than one operating system installed it will ask you which you wish to boot into when you first turn the notebook on.


    If you are experiencing sluggish performance, is your hard drive (CSmiley Happy getting full? A lot of our systems ship with two partitions, a C: partition and D: partition. If you have not been saving pictures, music, videos, or documents on the D: partition you may want to think about moving them over there so it frees up space on your C: and that will help speed it up a bit.

    I can’t find the WiFi switch if there is any in my Acer aspire laptop. The fn+f3 buttons doesn’t work.
