Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

I just bought an Acer Aspire One Netbook. Maybe I'm just crazy but everything comes up but when I open a new window, for ex: Ebay.com and I try to enter my information to sign in, I am unable to type the required information into the field. This works on any new window I open up. I tried on the netbook to login for help but again it would not let me type anything in the area where you ask the question. Please help!

  1. Apple laptops are beautiful, but I can't imagine the average user who spends all their time in the web browser paying 3 to 4 times the price of a netbook for a Mac laptop. Macs are brilliantly designed, it's true, but that's a hell of a tax to run Safari.

  2. Speaking of taxes, what about the Microsoft Tax? I'm already heavily infatuated with the current iteration of netbooks as represented by the Aspire. And they can only get better and cheaper over time. Imagine a machine with the same specs as the Aspire One but at $299, $199, maybe even $99. It's going to happen. It's inevitable. This is a huge opening for Linux; it's the ideal way to deliver a complete, modern web browser at nearly zero marginal cost to both the vendor and consumer.

  3. The booming growth of netbooks will keep Windows XP alive much longer than expected. As much as I like Vista as a solid (if not stellar) upgrade from XP, the prehistoric 2001 era system requirements for XP still make it a better choice for these kinds of devices. 1 GB of memory is roomy; a measly 16 GB of disk space plenty. Can't say that for Vista. No sir. It's also an opportunity for Microsoft to play games with the Linux market by reducing the price of XP to crazy low, fire sale, everything-must-go levels. But only for "select" and "preferred" OEM vendors, of course, not for the common folks on the street.
I won't lie. One of the attractions of this particular model is that it runs Windows XP, an operating system I, and every other software vendor on the planet, know by heart. It'll run whatever without me having to think too much about it. But I could easily see myself leaving some of that potential flexibility on the table if the price dropped to $199 or so. If it runs Firefox 3, or Chrome, or Opera, that's about all I need.

Where is buy a batterie for laptop look at a site www.elecachat.fr


The best place to buy a battery for your laptop is eBay. Once the site comes up just put in the search box something like Acer Aspire One battery. Click the link below and type in the search box "Acer Aspire One Netbook Battery" (without the quotes) and click Search. When the search results come back Select to only see the Buy It Now merchandise and Sort the list by lowest price first. The first couple of items will be ac adapter and power cord, but once you hit the prices in the $20 range you will start seeing the battery. Click the link below
to see a all the batteries.

The link below will take you directly to one that I selected that costs $23.99 including FREE Shipping. Please note that the battery fits the Acer Aspire One ZG5, A110, A150, D150 and the D250 which is your model.

I need a motherboard for an acer 8.9" netbook,


http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=acer+aspire+one+netbook+ZG5&_sacat=58058
Also a few people selling fully working ZG5's for in the mid $40 range... might as well try to just buy a newish one on ebay.
There is one listed with a broken screen for $46, even if the screen is busted the motherboard should be intact.
Best of luck!

I have an Acer Aspire One netbook, when attaching a Virizon BroadBand stick to the netbook, after all Virizon software was loaded on to the net book, it lost everything but boots to a pretty blue screen...


Try pressing Alt+F10 on boot up and see if it will let you do a factory reset. Otherwise you will need to contact Acer for a recovery disk if you do not have one. They shouldn't charge you for it (maybe shipping?)

Acer 5100 motherboard problem.


To list all of the specifications for your Aspire here would take too much space.
You can download the manual directly from Acer for your 5100 series notebook. The manual will provide you all of its specifications. (Click on the link to open Acer's web site);
http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012
Once the site opends click, Driver Download located at the left side.
Under, Select Product Family click Notebook. (Not Netbook)
In the next window click, Aspire.
In the third window scroll down & click on, Aspire 5100.
Click the Document button. Lastly, click on the white arror to download the manual. File named: AS5110_5100_3100-ENG-OLM_0616.zip
If you want to replace your current board. You can go to Ebay. This board includes your money back: http://cgi.ebay.com/Acer-Aspire-5100-MotherBoard-LA-3121P-HCW51-CR_W0QQitemZ220479374891QQcategoryZ158887QQcmdZViewItem
