Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

My Aspire One takes forty minute to boot up.

Window XP takes a long time before it come on. I check the control
panel to see if I download something twice when it finally does come on. Everything is correct. I even
deleted the few downloads I had, but my netbook still takes a long time to come on. I try to restore it to factory like and the program takes so long. I stop trying.

I have acer itnel atom, its window has currpted and i installed new window xp but it takes atleast 20-30 minutes to start.what i should do for proper start, Thanks


Your hard drive may be dying and cannot read files as fast as it should. A brand new windows installation should boot withing 1-2 minutes. Having a bad hard disk would also be the cause of your windows corruption in the first place. Listen to your computer boot up and see if it makes and identical clicking patterns, you will hear clicking regardless but make sure they stay random. if your disk is dying you will hear the same click over and over as it tried to read a specific file.

Monitor goes on and off........seemed to come on for the xp boot, but then disappears or is intermittant when the xp login page appears. Only fix sometimes is to reboot the computer. Very strange. Only...


In your Windows XP
  1. Go to Start and click
  2. The Start menu will open
  3. In the start menu click settings
  4. In the settings select "Control Panel"
  5. The Window of control Panel click "Power Options"
  6. In the Power options you will find Display time settings. These are the time settings that determine the time like if your computer stay idle for 5 min, the display will shut down.
  7. I suspect that this time is set to be very low like if there is no activity on the computer such as key punching, typically happens when you are reading an e-book Windows will automatically shut down the display. So you can increase the idle time to say 7-10 minutes and/or a similar setting is "Put the computer to sleep". Try to carefully alter the time values and you will find a good settings that work for you.
If the above tip does not work then there is definitely something wrong with your monitor's hardware most probably the power supply. You need to check it with a repair shop.

Good Luck!

Acer laptop power button and fan problem


This is usually something to do with network booting, see if your PC is trying to boot from some sort of network device, or network address, real or imaginary, It may also be a virus, trying to connect, somewhere, at boot up, so run a rootkit check too. Check all network settings and privacy settings too.
Here is a program that runs at boot time and tells you what is going on and how to speed up your boot time, it may help. copy/paste below. http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/BootVis/4-19687-1.html

To stop acer logo before starting windows xp


Well, Firstly this might be a extreme case but is to reformat your hard drive removing any manufactures partition, and reinstalling the Operating System, but what i would do first is the go to start---run---(type this command and hit enter)"msconfig" the system configuration window should pop up. Go to the boot tab and place check mark in the box which says "No GUI boot" you mat also change the timeout seconds there too. hit apply then OK and reboot your system.

hope this works for you. let met know.

I have a acer 5920 laptop and i forgot the login password


If you have Windows XP try this:

When booting up your laptop right after post (the beep) press F8 key and select safe mode. From there at the login screen you should get the welcome screen, select Administrator. After the desktop has loaded, open start menu, control panel, user accounts.
Inside here you should be able to change/remove your password.

If you have Vista or if the administrator on XP is password protected too try this:
You have to reset or crack the password with a socalled Live CD.. A kind of system/program running from a cd outside Windows..

You can try and download the ophcrack live cd, burn it to a cd and leave the cd in the computer and restart (You can use the program ImgBurn to burn it as a image):

ophcrack download site: http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd
ImgBurn download link: http://download.imgburn.com/SetupImgBurn_2.4.2.0.exe

How to burn it with ImgBurn:
1. Load ImgBurn.
2. Switch to 'Write' mode.
3. Insert Disc in Burner.
4. Select Image to burn.
5. Click 'Write' button.
6. Restart computer with cd in it..

You may have to the change the boot order in the BIOS setup if the cd doesn't start..

Acer 4520 Booting Problem.


i would suggest to uninstall and reinstall the drivers of your network adapter, or it would be best if you install the latest drivers for it. no need to format the HD.
if you feel that formating is needed, it would also work but that takes a lot of work.

hope this helps. :)
