Acer mouse is not working


If the lights are on, it means that the power supply is intact. The first thing you should do is reboot your computer.
If the problem persists, try using another mouse. If that does not solve your problem, check the mouse's drivers under device manager, (click on the start button, then select Device manager).
If there is a red or yellow mark beside the mouse, update or reinstall the mouse drivers. Uninstall from Add/Remove Programs(Xp) or Programs and Features (Vista/7).

Recovery acer5538


What is this
Do want recover your acer to factory defaults.?
or
use a usb memory card (usb drive)
The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop.
A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop.
It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature.
You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard.
Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.
Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives.
Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.

Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen.
The recovery menu will load.
Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options.
Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears.
Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
Restore your saved files from the flash drive.
An example on how to safe documents , photos or data to a usb drive
Click start all programs accessories open windows explorer navigate to your photos
Right click on the documents , photos select copy navigate back to the usb drive right click select paste or select the top photo hold the mouse cursor then select the bottom photo then drag the photo's to your usb drive then drop them
or if you are downloading data or programs from the internet

I just bought a new Acer netbook (A0532h - Model # NAV50) from Staples. The wireless connection is fair (same as my other laptop) yet the page transitions on my new netbook are painfully slow. Any...


This device should be about 90% as fast as your laptop.
The slowness could be caused by the number of programs you have opened at any given time. The system is not really designed to run multiple programs.
It can also be caused by the excess software on the hard-drive, and its condition.
Try removing any 'demo' software and other programs that you will not use (stay away from the OS) and then run the defrag program in Windows.

Acer aspire one trouble logging-in.


look into the firewall for interdiction...and if you use a wireless router to connect ..ask for whom it might install it ...if restricted the access on this programs...I use to restrict from the router the access on programs like this when I was working for a company ...that had internet access on the stuff desks....
try it froma different location ...and if it works ,,,it means that the provider or the router is to blame ...but if not it means that there are restrictions into your laptop ...either from the firewall( most sure ..cause those two are separate programs ..one is an im and the other from the browser..) but ,,try to see the acces limits from the browser too..cause maybe if the interdiction is on yahoo...it doesnt allow messenger either ..
