I received a 6 cell Acer branded battery for my fabulous Aspire One (512, linpus, 8gb) for Christmas.After inserting it, plugging the lead into the Acer and then plugging the charger into and switching on the mains the battery light stays orange for a while but then starts flashing. It flashes even after being left on charge all night.The light continues to flash orange when the Ones power button is pressed.If I try to use it on battery there's nothing. It doesn't power on at all, no lights.I've tried switching the power off, removing the battery, reinserting it and following the above proceedure and the same thing happens.Trying the old battery is fine the green light comes on as usual so I know it's not the One. I'm at a loss.Please help me. I adore my beloved One, it's used more than my 3 months old 2.5 dualcore 4gb ram HP running Vista Ultimate. By choice!Clive Carrington

The UM08A41 is a 9 cell battery The UM08A71 is a 6 cell battery Both of these batteries will fit your notebook but the A41 will last longer than the A71 battery. These notebooks are produced to be very inexpensive and the 6 cell batteries are usually in there to save money. A 9 cell battery is a common upgrade.
I've had battery dead problems on my Acer Aspire 3680 to the point where I have had to buy new batteries for it every 6 months to 1.5 years. The original 6 cell battery lasted about 1.5 years. Then, I got a high capacity 9 cell battery that lasted only 6 months off Ebay.com. They accepted it back as a defective battery and I got a partial refund.
I bought a couple more batteries for about $32-$39 a piece. Not a bad investment.
Also, check your charger, but on my Acer I've never had a problem there.
Depending on what you are doing and the Cell design of the battery, on a new system 2 to 3 hours on a 6 cell battery is fairly standard. Things like the brightness on the LCD, if you are using the DVD drive can also effect the run time of the battery.
I have the same system too. None of the tuners such as RIVA work well w/ integrated notebook card, and u r graphics card is pretty ghetto. I could however, download POWERSTRIP and tune up a minescule 300-400 MHz but it won't let me access memory clock. More than this I could do no further overclocking.
You need your to connect your Aspire to a network on which there is a device that does have a CD drive. Share the CD drive with the network and you are home free.
That is how I get stuff onto my Aspire One.
As for connecting your cell phone to the device - sorry. I dont know how to do that.
If you need help with sharing your CD device or setting up a network, you can ask Windows how to do that. If you dont have a wireless router, you will need one. Oh yes, and a second computer. IF you dont have a second computer, borow one from a friend.
If you need more help ... Id like to give it a try.
The Acer One comes out of the box with a 3 cell battery - you can buy 6 and 9 cell on Ebay.
You can load XP on your netbook and it will work OK with 512MB RAM, but will work better with a 1GB RAM installed as well. To upgrade to XP go to this site, it will give you various options of installing XP.
