Specs: Windows 7
i have an acer aspire-one notebook mini laptop and i am trying to download a free student software for engineering called "AutoCad 2010".The complete installation page is cut off at the bottom so i cannot click the finish bottom. i tried making the resolution smaller but it wont work. i also tried moving the little menu bar at the bottom to the side of the screen but that doesnt work either. what can i do?

Make sure the installation page is the focus window and then try tabbing through until the finish button is highlighted, then hit the enter key. I realize you probably can't see the finish button so you may have to experiment with the amount of tab clicks before you get it right.

Forgot to mention that i tried that for the rest of the pages before, but for some reason it wont work for this page. When i grabbed the top of the page to move it up i could see it was highlighted but when id press enter nothing would happen. thats when i began to try everything else

Click on the "Full Page" square on the top right (just to the left of the 'X' to close the window), this will 'fill up' your screen but if it is too long you will then get a scroll bar on the right side of the page. I had solved this a few years ago with XP.

"i tried making the resolution smaller but it wont work." Wrong, you need to make the resolution higher to make the icons and windows smaller. Try that.
By the way, I doubt that autocad will run well (if at all) on a mini laptop/notebook, it should have minimum requirements beyond the 'lil guy's capabilities, especially for 3D work.
