The Acer Aspire One comes with an edition of Windows 7 pre-installed. If that is the current operating system that it has now, then you should have Internet Explorer; it comes with every recent edition of Windows, and is very difficult to uninstall. To see if you have Internet Explorer (with Windows 7), open windows explorer and navigate to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\" If you do not see "Program Files (x86)", then look for just "Program Files". There should be an application called "iexplore.exe" Double click on that, and see if it opens.

Acer Aspire One, connects to my wireless network ok, but none of my browsers connect to any website.


Open the command prompt (you can do this by holding down the start button and pressing the letter r, then type cmd and click ok)
In the command prompt, type this:
ping google.com
It will tell you if it gets replies. If it does not, there is a problem with the network connection. If it does not, you may have a virus. Try running a virus scan (for example: Microsoft Security Essentials).

I don't know how to switch wireless on, on my netbook. There is no visible switch, and when I try to view wireless networks it doesn't see any of the available networks.


As i know, on acer netbook you have to switch on your wireless by pressing Fn key with one of the f keys, look from an antena icon on this key or go to control panel open network connections and right click on wireless connection and click enable.

My Acer Aspire One netbook won't open any browsers (firefox or explorer). I've tried multiple ways of opening a browser and nothing happens... no error message or anything. I'm running Linux.


have you downloaded any thing recent? this may be the cause ......... all I can suggest is restore the systems far back as the beginning of December last year.......(when everything was probably running smooth)


good luck

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.

No browsers will open at all. Aspire One AOA110


The Default gateway settings seem to be the problem. Try the steps below:
1.Click Start 2. Click Control Panel 3. Click Network Connections 4. Then click either the Local Area Connection Properties Click TCP/IP Properties, make sure that IP address and DNS are set to "automatically obtain." Click the Advanced button and make sure that nothing is entered for Default Gateway and on the DNS tab
repeat from step 4 for wireless connection properties also, if you use a wireless connection. You may also switch off the modem (and router if you have one) and turn it on after a few seconds. Reboot the computer.
Good luck
