Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

Acer aspire 1 netbook won,t boot up.

I have a acer aspire netbbok 3 months old and all of a sudden it won,t boot up. All i do is switch it on and it says acer aspire on the screen and then it goes to a blank screen with a white cross in the middle which i can move with the key pad. Battery is fully charged etc,just seems like it doesn,t want to start and i have tried everthing.
Not sure about warranty as i bought this brand new 3 months ago via a shop on the internet so can,t really send it back. Any help please much appreciated. Shaun

    Hi I have done that and it comes up on the 1st screen and says.

    system bios version v0.3109

    vga bios version Intel v1585

    Does this mean it is recognising the bios.

    This is a acer netbook and doesn,t have a cd,dvd drive.

    Thanks Shaun

When you first turn the machine on hit F2, that will take you into the bios menu, i don't know what version your machine is using, but the information is usually on the first page, you should find it easy enough because it will be next to the CD/DVD drive.

    Ah!! an EEC Pc!!
    And yes its recognizing the bios, although the hard drive i gather will be solid state,
    The machine will still be in warranty as you have a standard 12 months manufacturers warranty anyway.
    I suggest you take advantage of this and send it in to be looked at while it will still cost you nothing.

    Good luck

Acer laptop stuck on Windows boot manager

1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

I tried to upgrade the memory from 1 GB to 2 GB, but after that the computer's screen won't turn on, and i can hear three long beeps and two short ones

The beeps indicate memory issue.

Acer Aspire One Notebook supports upto 1.5GB of memory, so if you try to install 2GB it will not work.

Size 1.0 GB / 1.5 GB (max)
Technology DDR2 SDRAM - 533.0 MHz
Form Factor SO DIMM 200-pin

Aspire one netbook 3 cell battery 8 months old only will charge to 80%


Contact Acer and they will replace it free providing you can produce a proof of purchase less than one year old. Those netbooks have one year parts and labour warranty on them and Acer is very good about replacements like this.It shouldn't be a problem.

Hope this helps!

Laptop goes off

If a computer shuts itself down suddenly after 10-15 minutes it's usually down to oveheating. clean the filters and ensure that there is good airflow around the computer when you use it. you can keep an eye on temperature and control your fans with this program

you might need to buy a laptop cooler like this

which sits underneath it and blows cool air in
