Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

I have bought my son an Acer Aspire One netbook and have set it up this morning. All is well with the one exception that the system cannot connect to the internet via my wireless router. The netbook does connect to the router (a Speedtouch 780) but the message comes up that "The DNS server isn't responding, your computer is trying to use a DNS server that is incorrect or doesn't exist". Can anyone help? DJ

You may have to set up the network on the Notebook manually...You can go to the network setup wizard and choose to get the settings for the network and put them on a usb drive. Goto control panel and select View network status and tasks from the main computer running on your network(or the one you used to setup your wireless). You should see a page with all the network devices that are running on the system. Under "view your active networks" you should see the router's name. Click on the router and the wireless connection status page should come up. Here you will want to find the wireless "properties " tab and click it. There in the connections tab there should be a link at the bottom saying" copy this network profile to a usb drive"...select this option and the computer will prompt you to insert a usb drive and copy net settings...then you take the usb out and put it into the Acer A1 and under network setup copy files from usb drive onto Acer A1..the network setup wizard will guide you through the steps..any q'S email at jcameo7270@yahoo.com

How to do system recovery on aspire one


Hi you should be able to do the following, if not you will need an external CD drive & recovery disk.


1. Consider what data you still need from your Acer Aspire One's hard drive. Save the files to an external USB device.

2. Restart the Acer Aspire One's operating system. Wait for the Acer logo to appear on the LCD screen.

3. Press the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time to bring up the recovery menu. Press "Enter."

4. Click "Next." Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to restore the operating system back to factory settings.

5. Use the drop-down boxes to select the time zone and language information for your Acer Aspire One. Restart the netbook when you are prompted to finish restoring the computer.

6. Connect the external USB device to your Acer Aspire One and transfer the data you saved earlier back to the netbook.

Warning:
It is possible to delete the hard drive partition that has the recovery tool.

If your Acer Aspire One no longer has the recovery partition, you will need
to acquire an external USB DVD drive and then contact Acer for a recovery DVD.
Connect the USB drive to the netbook's USB port and then insert the recovery DVD in the drive.

Hope this helps.

Internet connection problem


If you reinstall windows using System Recovery Disk then you do not need to worry about anything, it will
bring your computer back to the factory settings. However, if you use Windows DVD to reinstall the system then you need to install all the drivers manually.
If your drivers are missing then download it form your manufacturers website.

If you are using win XP
