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?
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.
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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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
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.
ok this is what you have to do,,,,rescan your computer for viruses.., download ccleaner, spyboot search and destroy, atf cleaner...restart your computer hit f8 to go to safe mod go to safe mode rerun all this programs in safe mod, clena everything what is bad ( it will be highlated) run disk defragment, restart your computer and let it boot normaly... it should run faster, if you can go to safe mod do all this in normal mode, after all of that got to run and type msconfig it will show you on startup tab what programs are loaded on startupo of win xo uncehc those that you don't want or those that are suspicious to you.... and post me back if you ancourted any problems ....
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.
