Question about Acer Aspire One AOA150-1570 Notebook PC

Aspire One runs too slow for Win program

I was given an Aspire One for Christmas with Linpus OS on it.

After 4 days, I found out that to run my Windows program, [I only need one], I needed another program named "Wine", and to use that, I needed another called "Yum", [yes, I know, but try to stay awake!]

Having got my program installed, it runs, but sloooooowly, with 15 seconds delay before each key stroke registers on the screen.

Any ideas, before I have Linux/Linpus ripped out, and a proper Windows OS installed?

Regards, John

Honestly, you may want to not run Windows.

Linux has all the necessary programs and utilities to run Windows programs. You just have to find them. Goto: www.download.com and click on the tab for Linux Search there.

OR

Just wipe the entire harddrive with a Windows Disc Master install. This option will begin when you place the windows disc in the CD Drive and do a boot up from the CD drive. It will ask you if you want to format harddrive and say yes to that. After windows is properly installed, reboot again, see if all the ports, keyboard, mouse usb's jacks work properly, speakers, etc. If not goto the Aspire website and goto support and download all the drivers for your model.

Thanks,

Mark

My dell inspiron mini 10 notebook using window 7 pro..why it always hang when i opened many application..


The Dell mini computer runs on a Intel Atom processor and has just 1GB of RAM on it.. So the computer is designed only for internet surfing and launching small applications.. Thats the reason it is called as a netbook.. It comes with win starter edition... It is not highly recommended running a win 7 pro on this machine.. It can be really slow on this Operating system... Thats the reason your computer is slow.. Try to run inbuilt cleaning like disk clean up to see if there is any iimprovements in speed.. Else switch the Operating system to win XP or Win 7 Starter

I have an aspire 3053 laptop it is so slow its unbelievable is it possable to change the memory to speed it up its about 3 year old


Is your computer running Windows Vista Home Basic?
Does it have 512MB of RAM installed?
If yes to both questions, then adding 2048MB of RAM will _definitely_ speed-up your computer.

See: http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Acer-Aspire-3050%5E1733-ram.htm where you can buy 2GB (2048MB) of DDR2-4200 RAM for $38 US.

The usual cause for a "slow" computer is too-many programs running at the same time (not too many programs installed onto the disk-drive) competing for too-small amount of RAM.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power-cord.
Flip the computer over.
Remove the battery.
Remove the screws over the memory cover (at the centre of the bottom).
You'll either see a stick of RAM, or an empty slot for RAM.
Remove any existing RAM, and insert the new stick of RAM.
Replace the cover.
Insert the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Boot it up, and it will run _MUCH_ faster.

I just bought a new Acer netbook (A0532h - Model # NAV50) from Staples. The wireless connection is fair (same as my other laptop) yet the page transitions on my new netbook are painfully slow. Any...


This device should be about 90% as fast as your laptop.
The slowness could be caused by the number of programs you have opened at any given time. The system is not really designed to run multiple programs.
It can also be caused by the excess software on the hard-drive, and its condition.
Try removing any 'demo' software and other programs that you will not use (stay away from the OS) and then run the defrag program in Windows.

New Aspire with windows 7 is very slow


It may have a virus or just a bad windows install.
Try using your restore disk or option to bring back to factory.

Cant get into the network center on my acer aspire 1 ,


If this is an aspire One with linpus lite linux,

The network center disappearing is an issue with the linux update server that seems to corrupt the OS.

The solution unfortunately is to reload the OS from the recovery disk.

The aspire ONE does not come with an ODD so you will need to use the disk on a unit that has an ODD to make the recovery USB flash drive.

You will need a USB flash drive that has at least 2GB of storage, a computer with an ODD, and the linpus recovery disk that came ywith your unit.
1. Boot to the linpus disk, one of the options should be to make a recovery USB drive, make sure that no important data is on this USB drive as it WILL be formatted and erased.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and then insert the recovery flash drive in to the USB slot of the Aspire ONE.
3. Re-start the Aspire ONE and press F2 to go in to setup.
4. Change the boot order to boot from "USB HDD" and press F10 to save and exit.
5. Unit will reboot and recovery will start.
