Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Don't know what to do next with Acer Aspire One!

Rec'd Aspire One from HSN today and somehow managed to get battery placed on. It's plugged in and charging now but the instruction manual isn't very detailed.

What's next??? We have Comcast for high-speed connection with Linksys Wireless-G 2.4GHz routers on our two desktops. How can we include the new "baby"?

Also, does anyone know how long the battery needs to charge before it's fully charged--and if the memory will be affected if it is taken off too soon? Thanks very much!

    MPetro, you are wonderfully helpful with your advice. I can't answer the followup question (Did it solve your problem?) until tomorrow afternoon because it is charging and I don't want to disrupt it.

    Thanks again, so very much.

I'd let it charge for atleast 12-24 hours if its not documented. If its not fully charged and then discharged for the first use you can dramatically reduce its effective charge hold.

As for your WIFI router connection you will need to consult its documentation to login to it and setup a wireless ID and password. It may already be broadcasting a open signal that you can connect to but that's unadvised. Make sure you lock it down right away. Oh and to connect you should see a Icon down by the clock wither green signal strenght indicator or a baloon popup should appear saying a wireless network is available.

    You can setup your router/Wifi from the machine you are on if its using a wired connection from the same router. Depending on the model you usually connect to the router by opening a web browser and enteringhttp:// orhttp:// next you will be prompted by a username/password screen.

    You can usually find this in your documentation but if you dont have that I can find the default user/pass if you can provide the model number. Also sometimes they come with a CD that has a wizard that will walk you through this setup process.

I have acer aspire 6930. i turn it on and it goes directly to a screen acer erecovery management. i restarted it and hit F8 until i got the safemode screen. i made a choice and it took me right back to...

What preceded this issue? did you try to do a recovery? OS upgrade? If not you can try a "Cold Start",Remove AC plug from wall outlet, Remove battery, Hold down on/off button for 10 seconds, Replace battery, plug into wall outlet and start normally. That's I good place to start, If you havent tried it already. ALSO remove any Media, as in CDs, DVD, USBs etc. let me know what the results are we can try something else. be as specific as you can.

Somehow I managed to broke battery plug for Acer 6930G (the one says DC-IN - it's moving. How to fix it? Thanks.

The short answer is that YOU should NOT try to fix it;
instead, take the computer to a qualified technician,
who knows how to safely & correctly disassemble the computer,
and to repair the broken socket, or, if necessary, to replace the entire motherboard, reassemble, and test.

My acer aspire 5330 will not charge no matter how many times i plug the charger in and i already bought a new charger for it so i know its not the charger. i think its the laptop itself so i want to know...

Go to your devices manager and look at the top of the list,you will see batteries,with the loaded drivers listed there.If you don`t see any of that,you will need to go on the Acer website and download the battery drivers.Windows needs them to know the batteries are there...if it can`t see them,it can`t charge them :)..good luck

I have an acer aspire 3690, and when I plug the power cord in to the laptop, the battery does not charge any more. What is wrong with it?

It one of two things wrong here,

1) have your replace the battery yet?

2) Does your AC cord work properly?

Check that and let me know.

Battery- Will boot without battery, freezes with battery

It sounds like your computer's battery settings are messed up. First, check your battery settings. Perhaps they are somehow set to put your computer to sleep when battery power comes on. If that's not the problem, go to device manager, open batteries, and look at the properies of everything there to be sure all is working. If nothing appears wrong, update or replace the drivers from your manufacurer's website if available there. It looks like you have an Acer--I know thatthey have some battery recalls out. Let me know how it goes. If you are in warranty, get help from Acer: Acer's basic service availability period, 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (CST), Monday through Friday. Acer Customer Service at (800) 816-2237. If you get someone who says to reintall everything instead of addressing your problem itself, demand to speak to a supervisor (this happened to me) who knows what's what.

BTW, Computer companies like to sell you expensive batteries. You must always remove your battery while you are plugged in, or you will greatly reduce its lifetime of about 300 or so full charges. Also, to break a new battery in properly, so thatit will take a full charge, charge it for at least 15 hours, then let it completely drain and recharge 3 times. (that's in your Acer manual.) let me know what happens.
