This is one of the odd things on PC (answering for windows) No PC stated full model or OS. so... I guess.
many applications allow you to run it 1 ,2,3 or more times (called INSTANCES)
you can edit, say 5 documents at the same time.
(mad men do that) heheheehe
ok, it is simple to see this,
in windows, the task bar.
you see OO (open office) there not just one time you have
a second INSTANCE running, there (2 or more icons same)
so delete it, right click it and delete it. fixed.
or BETTER open them both see the fake one and shut it off, not the one with your LIFE STORY Biography loaded.
or just shut them all down now. all OO open .
then start again
and only click it ONCE this time.

1) Power off the computer then power it back on and begin tapping the F8 key. When the menu comes up, move the cursor to "Safe mode with networking" and do an enter
2) The computer should boot into the safe mode
3) Go to the control panel, Programs and Features, and uninstall OpenOffice.
4) If that doesn't work, download and install Malwarebytes, run a scan and get rid of the virus or malware on your machine.

Does the password come up instantly when the power is turned on or does the laptop load windows and then ask for your password?

If it loads windows, press F8 repeatedly while the computer is starting up, before the windows logo comes. Select safe mode from the list.

When the safemode loads, you will be presented with a Administrator user account, (XP and older) click on the administrator to sign in, if you haven't set a password to it you will be able to sign in and remove or change the forgotten password on your user account - start - control panel - user accounts.

If you have a password prompt that comes up instantly when the power is pressed on, there are few possible ways to get rid of it, The best being contacting your dealer or acer directly for the service.

If you are outside of warranty and you are willing to open up the machine, disconnect the bios battery for 20 minutes and place it back in, try starting up, some laptops may have a small switch to remove the password but it is very rare.

Because we can not never confirm that you are the owner of this laptop I will not give you further instructions, theres noting you can do to proof that your the owner of the laptop so please take it to acer or a local professional to get it removed.

SOURCE: green function key locked on acer laptop

Hey, I've just been having this problem. Try pressing CTRL + SHIFT + FN all at the same time. I found out that I had to press them once to turn on the green keys, and then press them twice more to turn it off. I hope that works for you.

How can I get my acer aspire one mini laptop to access wifi?

Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple. Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position. Not all models have this switch. Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To." A list of available connections will appear. Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range. Select the desired network and click "Connect." Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Sounds like Microsoft Office was just a trial basis for your computer. You now have to buy it. (Reel him in we got another one)

I suggest using the free OpenOffice, and save your hard earned money.
Just the way I ride.

1) Anything generated on a computer with MS Office, can be used on a computer with OpenOffice.

2) Anything generated on a computer with OpenOffice, can be used on a computer with MS Office.

3) There is no 'learning curve'. The user interface looks very similar.

4) OpenOffice is free because it is Open Source software,

Or buy MS Office,

For that you will have to buy it. Using one that isn't yours is severely punished by the law if you get caught. And you will get caught eventually.
Just use Open Office, it's truly free. http:://

MY Acer netbook model KAV60 no longer responds to wifi

Look below your arrow keys, near the bottom edge of the computer. There's a wireless indicator there, and on the edge itself there is a switch. You might have turned it off accidentally.

I have purchased an Acer Aspire 1, running Linpus Linux Lite v1.0.7.e It has Open office v2.3 pre installed, but only writer, spreadsheet, and presentations. Is it poosible to add the database, and what...

I don't know how to install new programs on that Linux version. But, on mine (Ubuntu 8.04) I can download a .deb file and Ubuntu can intall it by itself. I guess you will find a version of Open Office in the next link

...and click on Get more platforms and languages.

There are other ways to get the program and install it, by command line. Check in your version doc if you can use apt-get. The line would look like

apt-get install

with a previous su or sudo : sudo apt-get install
