Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
This appears on the desk top when I turn on my acer aspire one. there are no longer icons at the bottom right hand corner to show battery status, on/off, intenet connection. etc infact nothing is working. What can i do to put this right and get rid of the 'new item'
thank you for your help
Have solved the problem by doing the following:
In files open "my files"
In the view menu select show hidden files
open ".config" folder
open ".xfce" folder
delete "panel" folder
Restart PC and the panel will be back.

The first step would be to type 'xfce-setting-show' in the terminal interface, your xfce settings manager should pop up,
click on the "panel" icon to access the panel manager
in panel manager interface click the drop down and delete (using the "-" button beside the drop down) all panels EXCEPT for panel 1.
This should fix the problem, hopefully this helps

An upgrade caused the error.
You need to call Acer direct.
To fix the problem you need 3 things, a USB flash drive (atleast 2 gb), the Recovery CD that came with your netbook, and access to another PC.
Call Acer, they will then email you through step by step instructions of how to restore your computer.

At boot press F2 quick to access BIOS.
Use right cursor arrow and move across to Exit.
Then go down to Load Setup Defaults.
Press F10 (to save and Exit)
The bar should now be back.

I had the same problem. When you send in your AcerOne for repair, do not let them talk you into sending the AC adapter and battery.
Trust me on this. You may never see it again, and be offered the option to by a brand new adapter.

I believe this is a virus, and both can be removed and restored by doing a recovery, check this video here for full instruction on how to do this. I had the same problem and all is fine now #

This sounds a lot like the loss of BIOS/CMOS settings but that normally doesn't happen fro 3 or more years when the CMOS backup battery needs replacement and yours must be quite new.
I don't know which key Acer uses to access the BIOS setup, it is often F1 or Escape and whichever it is, it has to be pressed instantly after power is turned on.
If you can access the BIOS settings, choose 'Factory Default' if offered; that is the safest for the average user and often very close to ideal settings.
If you can get it to boot again and it repeats the problem, I would either use warranty repair if you still have it, or check your user guide for instructions on replacing the back-up battery. These have never failed and I've had to do with many over the years but they are not immune to failure.
