Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire One

I bought this pc in Feb. of this year with 2 yr care plan. I installed Windows 7 RC on it to try it out. Computer was working fine. I closed the laptop lid without turning off the computer. @ hours later I went back o the computer and no lights were on. I turned on the power button and nothing happened. The battery is holding a charge and the ac adapter works. The only sound I hear after I turn on the power button is a whirling sound. I hope someone can help me with this.

    How hot was the laptop when you found it? Or was it sitting for a while before you found it turned off?

We have two that went "Dead" like that too. Acer knows all about the problem of losing video. They have a BIOS update that they will send you on a flash drive. Give them a call, have your computer handy to give them numbers and in 3 o 4 days you will e up and running with your Acer One. They are a great little computer. By the way, you will not loose Windows 7 which I am using on my desktop right now. It's better than Vista.

I have been using a Canon MX320 printer with my Acer Aspire netbook for 2 years. It added successfully then using the windows new hardware wizard. Recently the netbook had to go fo "clean up" (virus)


Try to reboot yout computer. And try to disconnect your printer and install again using the Windows new hardware wizard.

If that doesn't work, you can download a driver here and install it manually.

Would like to know if i need a disk for windows 7 if i factory reset pc it came with windows 7 we i bought it


Open Sart Menu, Computer, Is there a D (Recovery) drive? Most likely, if you have a D drive that would be the Recovery Partition. I can't say for sure. If you open the Recovery/Restore software use this procedure: http://www.pctechbytes.com/acer/acer-aspire-system-recovery-partition/ Read Carefully.

The system disc probably did not come with the computer. You could burn one if the computer is functioning correctly. However, you may consider getting a full version of Windows 7 32 bit and trying to install it through the DVD drive.

You'll have to set the BIOS to boot from the DVD drive once you have the install DVD from Microsoft.

Luckily, Windows 7 can be used on many computers that came with Vista or XP originally, without upgrading the hardware.

The Windows 7 operating system costs about $119.99 depending on where you get it.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/compare/home-premium.aspx

This operating system can breath new life into your old laptop, which otherwise may require replacing.

If the hard disk drive actually crashed and is not recoverable, you may have to replace that hardware part, but hard drives aren't too expensive these days.

Good luck on this repair.

I installed the Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade (store bought) and now my Acer Aspire 5735 gets blue screens, shuts itself down, and random programs get the "**** has stopped working" message.


you shouldn't of installed it because if you would of ran the windows 7 compatibility thing that is on the disc, it would say that your computer is incompatible. You should buy another copy of windows xp and install that.

You need a higher computer specification for Windows 7.

Acer Aspire T310 is design only for Windows XP Home/Professional and Windows 2000 according to Acer Support Page:

I changed out the hard drive that came with my Acer Aspire 4530 and put Win7 on it. I see that there is a bluetooth button but when I try to turn it on it never lights up. Beyond that there is no Bluetooth...


Many acer notebooks have a bluetooth button but no bluetooth installed, two of the acer laptops I've owned have had the buttons for the bluetooth, but when pressed a message about No device has come up on both machines. The bluetooth is possible to be added to the machine but not installed from factory.

I'd need to know the exact model from the bottom of the laptop to confirm if it comes with bluetooth or not.

For example. Acer Aspire 1522wlmi

Acer Aspire 1690 cooling problem whit windows vista


Windows Vista is a very demanding Operating system when it comes to system resources and it doesnt come as a shock to hear that you computer runs warmly, If you werent experiencing any problems when you had windows XP installed, I would suggest downgrading to Window XP, otherwise wait for October 22 and purchase a genuine copy of Windows 7 and use that.

You have a pretty nice computer no doubt about that bro but the problem here is that laptops are not design with major gaming involved. I think if you want to play games and have the full experience of a computer game you should try built yourself a computer with a better graphics card.
