Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

Computer problems. Well, I have two computers. (mini laptops) They are my friends and he somehow got some viruses on them. On one, when I boot it up, after it gets through the xp logo, the screen just goes black. The second one, I can log in and whatnot, but after that, the desktop is bare. (Nothing, not even a start bar) If you can help on either one, please do so. If in need of additional information, just ask. Thanks in advance.

You want to start the laptops in "safe mode" When its up and running, run the anti-virus program and see what comes up.

HP mini does not boot


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Nb305 error 0211


From the description you have a virus, go into safe mode when you start the computer, now you should be able to do a system restore and bring computer back in time before you had this trouble, if this works do a full scan using your antivirus to clear out any problems that may be lerking around.

I forgot the password to my mini 210-1170 NR how can I possibly change it if i dont have a cd or anything to reset it


Go on a friends computer to download and burn a Heiren boot disk. Boot to the disk (you may need to change the boot order in the bios). Once you boot into the disk choose, "Dos programs" then find the option for password tools. On that screen there will be a program called active password changer. You can use that to get into the computer.

I have a HP(1010NR) mini laptop that is full of viruses. How do I reboot the computer?


Reboot means to restart it. If it really "full of viruses" as you say, don't even boot it; buy a new hard drive.

Factory Restore computer


Yes, factory re-imaging of the computer will work. But it's overkill.

Her computer is most likely infected with a virus that tells windows to shutdown.

Before reformatting the computer, have her boot into safe mode. Do this by hitting F8 while the computer is booting, and the safe mode menu will pop up, where she can pick "Safe Mode" as the method of booting.

When windows comes up, she should run a virus scan on her computer and try and get rid of the problem. She does have some kind of anti-virus utility installed right? If not, get AVG Free Edition from http://free.grisoft.com/doc/downloads?prd=aff

Virus


If your computer is an HP there is an option at the startup to do a system restore.  Press one of the function keys, to get to it.  Next select "Destructive Recovery" this will reset the entire computer back to when it came to you straight from the factory.  If you do not have that option, try using the system restore by going START, PROGRAMS. ACCESSORIES, SYSTEM TOOLS, and select system restore.  9 out of 10 times this will cause the virus to roll back on its self, hence destroying any trace of it.  Best Regards COMPUTA FIXA
