Question about Computers & Internet
I have had this computer for 16 days. I am about ready to pull out my hair. Whenever I boot up the computer, it says that I'm connected to my wireless network, but my browser [Internet Explorer] doesn't go anywhere. Everytime I boot up, I have to disconnect and then reconnect to the same wireless network. Then, sometimes, I can connect with websites. I have called Acer support who wanted to reformat the hard drive! A new computer! I was able to download a LAN wireless network driver, installed it. Same thing. Does anybody have a fix for this?

Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps

You can start the Recovery from outside windows by holding down the ALT key and tapping F10 repeatedly
on startup. When the recovery loads you will be prompted for a password.
This should have been set by the customer if they have been into the Acer Recovery Management software previously.
If they have forgotten the password or you wish to clear the password you need to boot off the recovery disk that should have been created.
From the Acer toolbar at the top of the desktop click on the disk icon
Setup a password if requested.
After clicking on setup you need to click Create Password to continue.
Create a password and add a password hint (strongly recommended).
You now have the option of restoring from a previous Windows Vista backup or you can start the Acer recovery process.
The recovery is started by clicking Restore at the bottom of the window.
Further types of recovery are now presented.
Choose Restore system to factory default if you wish to run the hard drive based recovery and return your Acer computer back to it's original factory default state.
Note: The factory default recovery will wipe ALL data from the computer so ensure important data has been saved to disk before proceeding.
Enter the password that was previously set.
Confirm you wish to run the recovery process.
After confirming you wish to run the recovery process the computer will restart and restore all the original files
Complete the Out of Box Experience when prompted
After a couple of restarts the computer will run through restoring the preinstalled software that came with your computer and then be ready to use
hope this helps
