Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
I'm working on an acer aspire 5050 for a friend. she got it for xmas of '07 and the screen stopped working about 6 months later and she never bothered to try to get it fixed til now. i fixed the screen problem and on the first time i booted it up the touch pad and scroll buttons didn't work and the power would cut off from time to time if i didn't have it plugged up to AC. now it's not even recognizing the battery as being on it even though it got a full charge the last time it did recognize it, the touchpad and scroll keys still don't work and a few of the keys on the keyboard stopped working. any advice?
The keys I cant help with ...they could be damaged due to wear and tear or full of collected dust etc.
but the pc....
from scratch ...get a hdd recover disk...this isnt a recovery disk it repairs damaged hd..(got software package if you want it,you need to unpack contents create a bootdisk and install files to it)
bootup with repair disk in cd tray ...wait til programs start and repair bad sectors then format hd.
next remove disk insert xp.reboot...select install to c:/
when sys asks format and install select no install as is...once installed you may have to install various drivers manually....for instance on a new install wireless devices are not recognised until the drivers are installed,the same with blutooth and various modems ,quite often depending on model generic drivers for vga get installed etc a good idea is to download the wireless driver for model and save on disk then once os installed you only have to install wireless and then the rest can be downloaded when you get online.
