This sounds like a Linux/Unix prompt for a user name and password. See this forum for more information:

Trying to install new flash player,, it tells me that i need to enter root password, ive never put a password on laptop so i cant enter the password as i dont know it,, can i have new password without...


Hi,

It sounds like you have an Acer with the Linux Lumpus OS installed on it.

When it ask's you for the root password the password is root. Just type root into the password box. and then install the flash player.

Acer factory backup does not start my computer


I have the exact same laptop as you. I've had this problem before. I bought the DVD's from Acer to reinstall everything and there are times when they don't work. I left it sit for a week and it stayed on the same screen. I would just keep trying, or order the DVD's from Acer. It will cost about $30 but might be your only chance.
I don't know if this is a flaw of this computer or not, but even with a different HDD in it it does the same.

When i switch on my notebook it reads localhost login;user (automatic login) then -bash;dircolors command not found what is this i carnt even get a home page


I'm thinking you have the computer to boot from a network, not the hard drive. You'll have to press the setup key (whichever the screen tells you to press when you start the machine and look for the bios setting that determines the boot order of your devices. In machines with a CD, the order should be CD first and then the hard drive. Unless you are in a corporate network environment, you would not want it to be set to boot from a network. Therefore, the third boot option should be disabled.

Acer Aspire 1640 flashdrive slots


The USB Root Hub of your computer must have its driver corrupted or the USB Root Hub device is disabled. Go to Control panel/Device Manager and scroll down to the USB ROOT HUB DEVICES. Right click on the device and enable it if it's diabled. If not, try updating the device driver online.
