Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Aspire 5100, I think it is out dated. The Aspire has a not genuine icon at bottom right screen. It will not let me get online to do any updates, or get the net in general, this includes Foxfi

Any ideas on how to get the net to up date my computer?

Get into Command Prompt mode - Programs~Accessories~CMD - and type IPCONFIG. If you have an IP address - type ping bb.com (short domain name). If you have an IP address and can ping through name resolution (DNS) - then it's a browser problem. If you aren't getting an IP address - then check your network drivers or your router...

SOURCE: Erratic behavior with Acer Aspire 9300

How about just reinstalling the OS and seeing what happens. If you are running Vista it is most likely just a bad original install. You should have installation discs supplied and you should have been encouraged to make your own reinstall disc when you first run the machine. If you did not then check your handbook to find out how to do it. It will make a disc from the ghost partition on the hard drive. use this to reinstall and take drivers from one of the original discs supplied with machine

The screen on my aspire 5100 is so dark i can hardly see it


hi mary welcome to the forum! 1)you have an Fn key bottom row left, hold down while also pressing right arrow, bottom right. Each press increases brightness. Each press of left arrow decreases brightness. 2)go to the manual of Aspire 5100 that you there is the option "AcerClearVision" in the software "AcerArcade". See manual:"Acer Clear Vision is a video enhancement technology that detects video content and dynamically adjusts the brightness/contrast/saturation levels so that you do not need to change the color settings if the movie you are watching contains scenes that are overly dark or too bright." So you opened "AcerArcade". There you take: "movie or cinema--> settings -->display settings" en there you change in the option 'color profile' 'ClearVision' to 'Original'.

Acer Aspire One, online connection is ok but No


Microsoft changed its log-in protocols since the Aspire One was released and the version of Messenger installed is unable to connect to the Microsoft servers.

You can get to the Live Update function by clicking on the settings icon from the home page (bottom right of your screen) you will bring up the settings window (obviously). Inside here, you will see the Live update icon (mine’s on the bottom left next to Touchpad).

1. Make sure you’re connected to the Internet.
2. Click on the Live Update icon.
3. Click on “Update” and if there are any updates, they will be listed and you have the opportunity to install them all.
4. Click on Install and your Aspire One will automatically download and install the updates for your netbook.
