Two grey blocks with sun like simbols in their center

Whilst trying to open Advance mode on my Aspire one ZG5, i caused two gray blocks to appear with a sun character in their center.When the control arrow is placed over one of them "New item, This item has not yet been configured" shows up besides it. Well the problem is they sit on top of all other windows and i cant trace my steps to find out what i did to make them appear, and i cant get rid of them! Please could you help me, i am new to Linux Linpux and still find navigating it a little daunting.

I cant enter sleep mode on my acer aspire one zg5. How do i fix?


Your settings in power mode have changed. Open up display and go to the screen saver tab (win 7) you will see the power savings option at the bottom. Go into that and change what the buttons do. You will have 3 situations to change. What happens when i close the lid, power button and sleep mode. Chances are you gave everything set to do nothing

A horizontal gray bar splite the screen when I open my acer aspire one zg5


You could have a bad LCD- try connecting your laptop to an external monitor- if that image has no bar, then the issue is definitely your LCD. You can try purchasing a replacement if you are not in warranty direct or through Ebay, etc. However if you are in warranty, get it serviced.

Acer aspire one model zg5 battery won't charge


I have exactly the same problem and am searching at the same time as you. I think you are wrong. I think the 150 is for the larger screen model. I think we need the 110.

I think it's this one that i found at acer-euro

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_110/bios/v.3309.zip

but I'm afraid to use it (which is not to say I know how). Somthing about putting it onto a USB drive and running scripts. At least that's what they do with this problem on a 150

Two grey blocks with a sun character in their center.


Its hard to tell because each version of Linux has its on special files that it can download. Look in all of your applications and see if you find a program called Synaptic Package. All you have to do is click on it and it goes to the repository and will update all of the packages and its dependent packages automatically. Not all versions have Synaptic, some just say Software manager, but its the same thing. So if you loaded Skype off of the Internet then you probably don't have all the files as Linux does not work like Windows. You can look for the Terminal window to open and type sudo apt-get install Skype see if that works, but again, if the program did not come from the specific repository then it may not update. If you want to remove it then you can either find it in your file manager program (again in applications) and delete it. Or you can try sudo apt-get remove Skype. Third option is to right-click on it and see what options you get if one says cut or delete then you know what to do. The sudo options will ask you for a password which you should have, its the root password. Last solution is to reload and start over, I've done that more than once :)..Well hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know.

Hi from london, have new acer aspire 1 zg5 new keeps shutting down after boot can u hlp pls?


Try booting the system to Safe mode.

To boot to safe mode:
Restart the computer. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, keep tapping on F8 key on your keyboard. When the Windows Options menu appears select the "Safe mode" then press Enter.

Once you managed to boot to Safe mode, change the computer startup and recovery settings by right-clicking "My Computer" then select Properties. Select Advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings. Uncheck the box for "Automatically restart" under System Failure.

Reboot again normally, see if it will reboot again by itself. If you managed to make the system boot normally, proceed to Events Viewer to find out what is the caused.

If the system failed to boot normally after doing the above, you might want to boot the system to "Last known good configuration"

Dark Grey Vertical Bar


1. try connecting laptop to an external monitor and check if this vertical dark gray bar appears. if yes it means video is the problem. you need to boot in safe mode then uninstall the video driver. boot to notmal mode then download and install the latest video driver. if still same problem then replace video card. if video is built in with motherboard you need to replace motherboard.

2. when the vertical dark gray bar did not appear in the external monitor then it means issue is with the LCD panel. Do this turn off laptop. press and hold D key then press Power button at the same time or Press and hold on the Fn key then Power button check if the test will run. Color displays full screen when you keep pressing on N key when the colors appears check the vertical dark gray bar if still exist in the test, this means LCD panel and LCD cable needs to be replaced.
