Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

Requires many reboots

This machine appears to be very unstable. Sometmes it operates for hours without a problem, butoften it locks up every few minutes and requires a reboot. Sometimes I have to reboot it several times for it to come up with the wireless connection operating. Other times, it comes up, connects to the internet and successfully connects to Google.com before is locks up.

    The screen gives directions to uninstall any new software that was installed. I did not install any software, still on the original configuration,
    Have you noticed that Acer has no home page in the USA, and your product can not be registered.
    Acer (Company) seems to have Pulled out of the US, and left us on our own to work out any problems or eat our losses because they have made a bundle, an do not care.

Sounds like a software related problem. Easiest approach would be to back up any valuable files and restore to original factory setup. You may need to purchase an external USB optical drive to reload the Operating System. If this does solve your issue then you may want to consult a local trusted pc repair shop so they can run hardware testing. Unless you have a warranty, with Acer you have a one year MFG. Warranty from the original purchase date.

Problems with Android OS Marshmallow. Home key does nothing, quick toggle screen won't scroll down above the notification tray, lock screen doesn't appear at any point.


If you get random errors or unstable system after an update, it's best to do a three button reset from android recovery menu. Wipe cache and delvac partitions and you should be good to go.

WARNING: this will erase all your data.

Google on how to do a reset from the android recovery for your particular model.

Door will not lock to start wash cycl


This sounds like a classic door lock problem. There was a design change in the lock assembly because of numerous problems.
You say you had the door replaced, did they replace the lock assy also?
The control puts power to the wax motor that operates the latch. As the door locks, the latch activates the lock switch that tells the control the door is locked.
What kind of reading are you getting on the lock switch?
Thanks/Mike

Where do I put oil in Esante ESe Baby Lock?


one drop on the needle bar after every 8 hours of sewing, and anywhere metal rubs on metal. But this will only get you so far. the shafts will also need to be oiled and this should be done by a technician as it requires complete disassembly of the machine.

I need to reset my toshiba satelite A215-S4817 to factory default


toshiba satelite A215-S4817
This is a laptop not a desktop !!
Restoring factory default settings on your computer can be done within a couple of hours, without any need for the recovery discs.
First, you need to back up any data and information that you want to keep, such as documents, pictures, and downloaded email, since everything will be erased from your hard drive after restoring the factory settings on your computer.
If you haven't restored factory settings on your machine before, do not worry.
With proper instruction, you can have your computer back to its original state within a few hours at most.

Restart your computer and proceed to Step 2 before Windows begins to load after reboot.
If you are restoring a Toshiba model, hold down the "0" (zero) key as you turn off the machine, then skip to step three.
2
Access your computer's "PC Recovery" feature by entering the correct button(s) for your machine.
This button varies, depending on the make of your machine.
HP and Dell users will hit the "F11" key, whereas Acer and Sony users will enter "F10."
If you own a Samsung model, use "F4."
3
Select "Destructive Recovery," or "Restore Original Factory Image," from the list of options that appear on the next screen, then click "Continue."
A destructive recovery will erase everything on your machine and reinstall the operating system.
4
Wait as the factory settings are restored on your computer.
Windows will require you to make date, time, and language settings on the next set of screens to follow after your machine restarts.
This process can take anywhere from a half-hour up to 2 hours to complete.

Accer apire one d255e hardisk security lock


The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is designed to check the integrity of the computer hardware and launch the operating system. The BIOS also has basic security features that prevent unauthorized access to the computer by locking the hard drive with a password. The password is required in order to launch the operating system. That option can be disable without an changes to the operating system.

Turn your computer on. Press "Esc," "Del," "F2" or "F8" to access the BIOS. Use the arrow keys to go to the "Security" tab. Press "Enter." Highlight "HDD Lock," Boot Password" or "Hard Drive password" using the arrow keys. Press "+" until "Disable" appears. Go to the "Exit" tab, highlight "Save and Exit" and press "Enter." Press "Y" when prompted to reboot your computer without the hard drive password.

Major humpng in spin cycle GE front load madel WPXH214AOWW


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 20:46 Thur evening.

All washing machines, whether front or top loaders, must have all of their feet firmly on the floor to operate without rocking n' rolling and being unstable!

With the machine NOT running push one front corner firmly diagonally (tawards the centre) and if it moves it is THAT foot which requires adjusting downwards until it is really firmly- almost pushing- on the floor. If not that corner do the same with the other. Once the machine is REALLY stable ensure that the locking nuts lock the feet in position so that they will not unscrew and make the machine unstable yet again. Might take a little time but it is imperative, not only for good operation but it also saves damage to the drum supporting mechanism.

Good luck!

I need to reboot my computer and when it starts up but i dont know how


How to reboot a PC.
  • Save work if it's in jeopardy. If your PC has frozen, attempt to save your data before rebooting your machine. Rebooting will almost certainly cause data loss. Attempt to save your data to your hard drive, diskette or portable media.
  • Step 2 Determine the steps your operating system has to go through to reboot. Some operating systems allow you to press Control, Alt and Delete to reboot the PC. Others require different commands. However, if the operating system and software are frozen, you may use the power button on the machine or the power strip.
  • Step 3 Use the power switch if necessary. If you cannot access the shutdown feature of the operating system and the relevant buttons still won't allow for a reboot, press and hold the power button on the PC. Allow the machine to rest for a few seconds, then power back on.
  • Step 4 Wait for the power-on self-test. Allow the PC to check its components thoroughly through the initial boot screens that will appear.
  • Step 5 Resume working. Log back into the machine and continue to work.

    New Janome 6600 Erroring out


    Hi,
    This is the official Janome reference to your E% error message:
    Feed sensor error "E 5" appears when the machine is turned backwords slightly while the machine runs over tight spot. The above will happen when - the machine is locked by thread jammed in the machine. - sewing extreamly thick fabric. In case of the MC4900, it will happen when running without threading the thread take up lever. The thread take up lever should be threaded when the threading light lights up.
    Hioe this helps
