Put a Windows XP disk (has to be the full version not an upgrade) into the CD drive and the computer will ask to "press any key to boot from CD". Press a key. Follow the prompts, It is important to delete the partition when asked. Then recreate it. Format the drive with NTFS file system. The setup will go on to reinstall windows automatically.

Now, the only challenge is to reload any software drivers for components Windows does not find automatically. This is a little tricky. Do google search of Acer drivers or go to www.drivers.com.

Also, remember all your software programs need to be re-installed. For example, your Microsoft Office (word, excel, etc). Any games, any virus protection, Quickbooks, etc. The printer software also needs to be re-installed. Hopefully you still have the original disk or if its a Hewlett Packard go to their website.

That message is because the laptop is trying to boot through the network. You have to change the boot order in the BIOS, and put on first place the hard drive. Press the F2 key just before turning on the laptop. You should go to the bios program. On the bios, search for the Boot tab-move with the directional keys- you should see something like this: http://slackworld.berlios.de/2007/images_vmware/vm-bios-cdrom-boot.png. Press F5/F6 to move the hard drive on top. Then press F10 key, hit "Y" and then "enter". The laptop will reboot and it should boot through the hard drive-on which you have windows. If with hard drive on top, you still get that messsage, you will have to reinstall windows-it means that the files in the hard drive are corrupted- or replace the hard drive.

Acer Aspire one keeps freezing

My Acer Aspire One netbook keeps freezing right after it starts up. I can't click on anything! It's only three months old and I've hardly used it because of this reason. I've tried shutting it down and restarting. Sometimes it stops at the windows welcome screen. Sometimes I get to screen that shows my folders - but when I click on a folder, or an anything nothing happens. Then it just freezes altogether. What do I do to fix this?

acer aspire one model zg5 battery won't charge

So, I've read a few posts about how flashing the latest bios would solve this problem. The problem is now to find the correct bios. My theory is that the zg5 uses the same bios as the A150 model. I came to this conclusion since acer support does not offer drivers or bios for the zg5. My support question is then, is this a correct assumption?

And also I have never flashed bios before. How is that done? Thanks in advance!

I have exactly the same problem and am searching at the same time as you. I think you are wrong. I think the 150 is for the larger screen model. I think we need the 110.

I think it's this one that i found at acer-euro

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_110/bios/v.3309.zip

but I'm afraid to use it (which is not to say I know how). Somthing about putting it onto a USB drive and running scripts. At least that's what they do with this problem on a 150
