1. Have your CMOS/BIOS settings boot from CD and Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer.

2. Upon getting in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now

5. Press F8 to accept licensing agreement.

6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair. Press R to begin
the Repair process.

7. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.

8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”

9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.

10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.

11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.

12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).

13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.

Please do inform me if this has been helpful to you.

Forgot password for acer tablet/aspire one


The default root password for an Acer Aspire One running Linpus Lite is 111111
So open a terminal, and enter
Code: [Select]
and the password 111111 when asked.
your prompt should change from an $ to a #
If it's the user password you want to change, now enter:
Code: [Select]
you will be prompted for the new password twice

[END EDIT]
You'll need to get the into advanced mode - you'll see why once you've done it. To do this go to "Files" > "My Documents" to open the File Manager. Then go to "File" > "Terminal" (use the word menu at the top of the File Manager window.

Linpus Linux uses Xfce, so use "xfce-setting-show" to get the Xfce Settings Manager.
Click on "Desktop" to get to the "Desktop Preferences" and select the "Behavior" tab.
Now under "Menus" click the "Show desktop menu on right click" option and close the window.
This setting will allow you to bring up the normal desktop menu when you right click somewhere on the desktop. The Desktop Menu contains many more options than the limited user interface on the Aspire One.
OK. Now you're in advanced mode, right click somewhere on the desktop to bring up the menu. Go to "system" and then go to "terminal"

Once the terminal has opened type this:
Code: [Select]
sudo -su it will prompt you to enter a password. type this:
Code: [Select]
passwd It will now prompt you to enter your new root password (Just type it - you won't see anything appear but it's registering it).
You'll be happy to hear it asks you to repeat the password to make sure you were paying attention...
Note: That the password can be anything you want but needs to be longer than 6 characters.
Done!

On by Aspire One with Linpus Linux Lite v1.0.15.E, I am connected to my network but cannot connect to the browser. I get a message: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding; To open a new...


This could happen after your netbook crashed or turned off while Firefox was still running. When Firefox is running, it puts a file called "parent.lock" in your Firefox profile directory. If you delete that file, Firefox should start properly again.

I'm not sure exacly where the profile directory is on your system (I currently don't use Linpus Lite anymore), but it should be somewhere in your home directory in .firefox or .mozilla. Maybe this page could help you find it.

How do you find out what current password to enter when rebooting system for acer aspire one?


If you do not have an account on the system, you cannot "find out" what the password is. If you have an account, but cannot remember the password, you should enter as the Admin and reset the password. If you cannot enter as Admin, then suggest you contact the manufacturer for support.

Note that there are several tools available online to help you break into the computer if you have physical access to it, but I can't recommend that someone without experience try this.

My acer one aspire


I use linux on my Aspire one but not Linpus Lite There is a known problem with the acer one switch. so you may want to try blacklisting the acer_wmi module and you mey have to change your wireless driver. try running NetworkManager in shell and see if it will give you any errors. My wifes Netbook has a similar problem She has the same linux i do. As far as getting NetworkManager to start automatically i'm not sure you may have to add it to startup applications but again i'm not sure about linpus and how it looks.

Acer aspire one running linpus lite is missing HAL and audio/ usb drivers. Also the keyboard doesn't work


Wow, sounds like you should get in there and config it.  Boot up a liveCD that loves your Aspire One (not Generic All Acer PC Desktops, thanks,) like Linpus Install or Knoppix, and have a look at /var/log/messages to see what it's problem is; then put it back to working order from whatever changed.

What makes you think HAL and audio/USB drivers are missing?  Are they not compiled into the kernel?  Versions and context, please....
