    rtrahan, thanks for your assistance! I think my linux is called linpus, (i really am clueless in regards to operating systems) another thing that may have caused the gray blocks,i tried to download Skype from the official site, i think rpm has something to do with the version i got. well it down loaded,and i just tried to right click it to install,but i now have the skype,but nobody can hear me when speak, i am thinking there was more to it than opening the file and thinking thats the instalation complete! Microphone pick up set max and unmuted by the way.the block i think could be missing parts to the programe utilizing the internal mic? Either way, i would hav a clue were to start to sort that,i am considering doing a system restore and forgeting about skype and Advance mode!

    The sun character in Ubuntu means you have files that need to be downloaded. What version of Linux are you using.

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.

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

I have problem with Acer aspire keyboard, some keys are not working


You may accidentally have turned NumLk on which causes the keys on the right part of the keyboard to act as a keypad for entering numbers. A little padlock with the number 1 in its middle is the indicator for NumLk and it will be lit or a LED bar underneath it will be lit when NumLk is on. On the Acer Aspire One 8.9" screen model ZG5, the NumLk is toggled on/off by holding down Fn and pressing the F11 key. Also, when NumLk is on, pressing U I O gets 4 5 6 and J K L M gets 1 2 3 0. The reason for embedding the numeric keypad within the usual character keys eliminates having a separate set of keys for the keypad function resulting in a more compact keyboard that better fits with notebook computers such as the netbooks which have smaller screen sizes.

I am using my Casio fx-300MS and have somehow gotten into the display where it puts my answers in exponential form; 5+5 = 1.0 exp10 to the 1. How do I return to getting my answers in standard form?


Display Format

To change the exponential display format, press the [MODE] key 3 times.

Fixed number of decimal places:

Press 1: Scientific Notation: 0

Press 2: SCI: 0

Press 3: NORM

You will then be prompted for NORM 1 or NORM 2. CHOOSE NORM 1


To return the calculation mode and setup to the initial defaults, press [SHIFT] [CLR] [2]

[=]. This will return the calculator to the following settings:

Calculation mode COMP

Angle unit Deg

Exponential display format Norm 1

Fraction display format a b/c

Decimal point character Dot

Can't find the equivalent model numbers for Aspire One ZG5


From ACER FAQs:

The Aspire One systems labeled with the model ZG5 are actually an Aspire One AOA110 or an Aspire One AOA150. Any information will be listed under AOA110 and AOA150, rather than ZG5.
The supportmodel number is located on the bottom of the netbook on a white label above the serial number. Alternatively, the support model number will be located in the BIOS which can be entered by pressing the F2 key when turning the netbook on. Once in the BIOS it will be under the Information tab to the right of Product Name

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

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"
