Possible memory issue. Try Reseating your memory card on the system, it would be helpful.

The only solution i have found for the flashing 9 lock symbol is to remove the battery, then remove both (if there is 2) sticks of memory then replace one in the opposite slot. Plug in the power adapter and try restarting. That worked for me, once it started i checked for updates and then turned it off and replaced the second stick of memory and then the battery and while unplugged restarted again.
This is the second time i have gotten this fault, and no-one seems to know what it is. It seems to be some kind of error with the system state but i cannot find a reason as to why that is. But as long as my solution works i don't mind too much.
Hope this helps.

Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop


    Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572
    Manual
    . I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

    Button keeps blinking


    It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

    Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


    This can be for a number of reasons.

    First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

    Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

    If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

    Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

    Hope this helps.

    Mouse and keyboard have no power


    If your mouse and keyboard work properly with another computer or laptop the problem could be :
    A) if devices are USB :
    - defective USB port : chose another USB port;
    - USB port inactivated in BIOS : check and activate;
    - motherboard defective : replace motherboard.
    B) if devices are PS/2 :
    - damaged PS/2 ports : buy a PS/2 to USB adapter for your mouse/keyboard or buy USB mouse and keyboard;
    - motherboard defective : replace it.
