    Yes, it starts to load windows xp, but then shuts off. I did purchase this refurbished. I am using the electric power; does the battery have to be charged first, even though I'm using electricity?

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?

    No it does not need to be charged. try it with the battery out.
    Does the screen flash blue before it shuts off?
    does it restart or power right down?

My acer netbook stuck on the windows xp screen but wont start beyond that? Had turned it off and on then got to screen: your safe mode options, or start windows normally.....yet it has not.

You most likely will have to repair windows.

If you can, connect an external CD ROM drive to you Aspire One (I'm assuming that the Aspire One dose not have a CD Drive) and boot of the Windows XP CD. Go through the options as if you were re-installing XP and then when it detects the current installation choose the repair option. THis should fix the boot up issue.

Also you can try the "System recovery" Option. You will need to go through the owner's manual to find out how, but usually you boot up the laptop and tap the "F10" or "Alt + F10" key(s) and it will take you into the system recovery options. This will wipe out all the information that was on the disk before so use as a last resort.

How do I set my Acer Aspire one back to factory settings

At the boot menu you must choose backup mode option instead booting into windows XP directly.
That way you'll boot into a backup mode and you can reinstall windows.

I it possible to uninstal Linux OS and instal Windows XP to the Aspire One ?

Yes you can install XP on that netbook.
Now because there is no optical drive in that netbook you will need an external CD/DVD drive connected to the netbook and an XP install CD.

You can get the Windows drivers from Acer here >>>>>>>

Just look under the netbook for the correct model number, select netbook, then Acer One and click on your model to download the drivers.

Acer Aspire netbook has "system not fully installed"error message

There is no easy fix for this. It would need a registry edit to fix it and without having a CD Drive and an XP install CD to boot to, it is pretty much impossible. I would suggest you send it back.

Wish I had better news. Thanks!

Acer Aspire One wont turn on

Hi there
It sounds like the hard drive is faulty and has some bad sectors on it. Take the hard drive and boot the machine to rule out any other possibilities of problems with the laptop itself, if it stays on and just says hard disk not found you know its the hard drive.
You need to have the hard drive checked for possible bad sectors and have them repaired or maybe even have to purchase a new drive.

Good luck
