What do you mean by terminal?
Hyperterminal connection to a switch? - It's in Start - All programs - Accessories - Communications - Hyperteminal. You will need to know the com port number and associated other settings. Try 9600, 8, none, 1 with flow control None
A physical port on your laptop? - there are screws on the underside of the laptop that can be undone to reveal compartments, or flaps on the side of your laptop that can be simply undone by hand.
A remote desktop connection? - using microsoft terminal services connection. Click Start - Run then type mstsc and hit enter. Enter the IP address or host name of the system you want to connect to.

Forgot password for acer tablet/aspire one


The default root password for an Acer Aspire One running Linpus Lite is 111111
So open a terminal, and enter
Code: [Select]
and the password 111111 when asked.
your prompt should change from an $ to a #
If it's the user password you want to change, now enter:
Code: [Select]
you will be prompted for the new password twice

[END EDIT]
You'll need to get the into advanced mode - you'll see why once you've done it. To do this go to "Files" > "My Documents" to open the File Manager. Then go to "File" > "Terminal" (use the word menu at the top of the File Manager window.

Linpus Linux uses Xfce, so use "xfce-setting-show" to get the Xfce Settings Manager.
Click on "Desktop" to get to the "Desktop Preferences" and select the "Behavior" tab.
Now under "Menus" click the "Show desktop menu on right click" option and close the window.
This setting will allow you to bring up the normal desktop menu when you right click somewhere on the desktop. The Desktop Menu contains many more options than the limited user interface on the Aspire One.
OK. Now you're in advanced mode, right click somewhere on the desktop to bring up the menu. Go to "system" and then go to "terminal"

Once the terminal has opened type this:
Code: [Select]
sudo -su it will prompt you to enter a password. type this:
Code: [Select]
passwd It will now prompt you to enter your new root password (Just type it - you won't see anything appear but it's registering it).
You'll be happy to hear it asks you to repeat the password to make sure you were paying attention...
Note: That the password can be anything you want but needs to be longer than 6 characters.
Done!

I purchased an Acer Aspire AM3470G-UW10P.Hooked it up and it worked fine .Next morning the power light is on but the computer will not wake up.


remove it from power source,open up the casing and you will see a jumper with CLR CMOS.remove the jumper and replace it on the next terminal.wait a few seconds and return it to the normal position you found the jumper on.
power up your machine,you will have 2 reset the date and time after though.

good luck

Reset bios on acer aspire e380


Hi,

You can reset BIOS setting by CMOS jumper setting. Please follow the below steps: Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battery, remove it & then with the help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a screwdriver while turning ON). It will clear the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battery & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

If the computer still does not boot, then it needs repair.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Battery not charging on my acer aspire one


I had the same problem with my Aspire One in the past. When I would plug in my Aspire One it would not charge, but would emit a foul smell. I had to send mine to Acer. The problem was caused by a short in the charging terminal on the mother board. They replaced the mother board and since then my Aspire One has been running as good as ever.
