Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

My netbook shuts off as it starts up.

My aspire is three months old, and I haven't had a problem until this afternoon. I have XP, and as it starts up, it gets just to the welcome sound, and then just shuts off with an audible click. I'm not very tech savvy, but I haven't spilled anything on it, and the battery is totally charged. It does the same thing whether it's plugged in to a power source or running on battery.

What do I do?

To make matters worse, I'm a college student with lots of not-backed-up documents on it, and a project due tomorrow. Help!

Depending on the model of your daughters netbook it may be possible to recover the machine thru another drive that is already on the computer. That drive is called a "recovcery partition" You will need to read all of the information that came with the netbook. You may even be able to contact the manufacter for support at no cost as the netbook is under warranty. Again reading all of the documentation that came with the computer will give you will give you direction. Don't worry there is a solution that will come with little or no cost at all.

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!

Just purchased acer aspire one 150-1786 netbook

You say you just purchased it, It must be under warranty, take it back. If its not under warranty it could be a number of things. removing and replacing the ram is the easiest thing to do. Does anything show up on the screen when you turn it on?

If your computer is less than six months old, you can contact the manufacturer and they will help.

Secondly, the new devices for sound and video are mounted, especially on laptops, on a special high definition bus (or something like that).

I had a similar problem with HP laptops whereby this advanced bus was easily detected by Vista but I had to install XP and the sound went kaput. The only way to solve was to install this driver patch specially prepared by the manufacturer.

That is why you have to contact the manufacturer.
