My Acer Aspire One was working perfectly untill today, now it wont connect to the internet either by erthenet cable or wireless, each time i click on the browser icon it thinks about if for a few seconds...


Here are some suggestions that may help you resolve your Acer Aspire One problem.
Try to eliminate possible causes by
1. Shut down / power off all the PCs - the Aspire One and those belonging to your son and daughter.
2. Shut down / power off all game or multi-media consoles that can connect to internet via router.
3. Power off any another network connected devices (hard drives, printers, scanners, picture frames)
4. Power off your wireless router and cable/dsl modem for about five minutes.
5. Power on your cable/dsl modem.
6. After a couple of minutes, power on your wireless router.
7. Power on your Aspire One and a few minutes after desktop is loaded, shut off its wireless.
8. On the desktop's Taskbar, make sure the Wireless Network Connection icon has a red x beside it.
9. Look for the double-screen icon representing Local Area Connection in the desktop's Taskbar.
10. If not there, click start, control panel, network connections and right-click Local Area Connection.
11. Click enable on the pop-up to enable the Local Area Connection and its icon appears with red x.
12. Connect ethernet cable from one of the router's RJ-45 LAN ports to Aspire One's ethernet port.
13. The red x should disappear from the double screen icon in the Taskbar.
14. Hovering your mouse cursor over the icon should get a pop-up with the connection's status.
15. If OK, click on your IE browser icon on the desktop.
16. If nothing happens, click start button at bottom left and click on IE in start menu or program list.
17. If nothing happens, press Ctrl and Alt and Del key together to bring up Windows Task Manager
18. In WTM, click Applications tab to see if IE Task is running.
19. If not, click Processes tab to see if iexplore.exe process is running.
20. If not, check if you can start anything else such as Notepad.
21. If nothing starts, you should consider doing a recovery using Acer eRecovery Management.
22. If IE does start, click on its Tools tab then click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
23. Follow on-screen instructions to diagnose your connection problem.
24. If successful, close down IE, remove ethernet cable and restart the Acer Aspire One.
25. Disconnect the ethernet cable and turn on the Acer One's wireless with its wireless switch.
26. Big green letters "Wireless LAN Enabled" should appear momentarily at bottom of desktop
27. Followed by a pop-up balloon over the Taskbar's wireless icon announcing connection made.
28. Open IE browser again, click on its Tools tab then click on Diagnose Connection Problems.
29. Follow on-screen instructions to diagnose your connection problem.
30. If OK, the problem may be an interaction with one of the other networked devices/systems.
31. Redo this procedure but power on one of the other devices/systems before the Aspire One.
32. Redo one at a time for each of the other device/systems.
33. If the Aspire One is found to be OK with all of the devices/systems connected one at a time
34. Then the problem may be when ALL of the devices/systems are on and connected.
For example, depending how it is setup, the router's DHCP may have run out of IP addresses.
Another example is IP address conflict due to systems not flushing their IP cache on restarting.
These two examples assume the problem exists regardless either on wired or wireless connection.
If just one of the devices/systems is causing the problem, it may have been infected with a virus.

My Acer Keyboard wont respond when i press the key's


A few days ago my acer laptop aspire 1640z , began to behave slower than usual when typing on the keyboard. At first I thought it was a virus, I did all the necessary scans and found none.
I then thought it might be the Keyboard driver, but it wasn’t.
I went into safe mode by keeping F8 down when you start the computer and select the directory service restore mode, which resets certain applications back to its original state. I found that my internet AOL connection and explore and fire fox would not connect to the net. Make sure you have a disk for AOL or setup file for fire fox saved, to reinstall the software. This seemed to work a bit but by accident, I remove the battery from my laptop and kept the power cord connect and Wow! it works even faster than before.
I have also notice that my battery does not hold a charge anymore. My theory is that because the battery is in critical status when connected to laptop…. (Even though the power cord is connected), the computer thinks that its going to run out of power and wants to go into hibernation mode which slows everything down including typing on the keyboard.
So before you try the safe mode option, remove the battery and use only the power cord cable and see if this solves the problem. Mine is running fine again ,but when I put battery back it slows down again. I read on the net its affecting only Acer Laptops, probably because the way the power settings software is set up for the Acers.

Pc connection problems


Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
