Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

How do I reply to your question

Am not sure how I am to respond to you, billspeer, as this is the only window I can find. There was no reply button to reply directly to you. I trust you will get this OK.

It is from orr2.This is running on Linx Lite v1.0.7.E and under networks LAN: realtek RTL8102E PCO express fast ethernet controller and wifi: aatheros AR5006EG 802.11 b/g wireless PCI express adapter (rev 01)

There are no yellow circles etc. and in the connection management there is a LAN connection that is set for obtaining an IP address automatically (DHCP) and obtaining the DNS server address automatically (DHCP). The driver is r8101 and the hardware address is 00:1E:68:B1:98:A0

I haven't worked with Linux before and because everything worked OK I didn't have to figure out what is comparable to Windows in setting up the network, etc. It just worked!!!

I used the re-install rescue disk but it did not help (supposedly). I found out from the user that LAN-1 and LAN-2 appeared when he was in the Ivory Coast and he has not been able to use the computer since. I deleted both LAN-1 and LAN-2 (I was not sure where those had come from so I had left them in). I made sure there was only LAN-0 and did an "edit" (although it was only going through the process and I checked off everything that was there before). I left the computer turned off overnight (not just a re-start) and I just tried it now and it worked!! Don't know why, but maybe the config done in the Ivory Coast created a problem. Anyway, problem solved!!! Thanks for all your help.

The internet explorer icon is not responding (no matter how many times i clik)?

It is possible that the shortcut icon is broken. Click start and then click Internent Explorer apposed to clicking it on your desktop.

I would also recommend installing the latest available Internet Explorer for your computer.
Click here to download Windows Internet Explorer 8.( For Microsoft Windows XP or Vista.)
Click here to download Windows Internet Explorer 9.( For Microsoft Windows Vista or 7.)

Be sure to select your version of Microsoft Windows under the correct language. Click the download button to proceed.

Take care!

Sounds like a virus to me. I would reinstall windows o/s, making sure to reformat the hdd during the o/s installation. Reinstall all programs and data. Hopefully you have backed up your data.

I used to have the same problem... Have you got any e.g customization packs installed, because if you have then theres a chance you will need to uninstall that.

Reply back if it still doesnt work.
