Ubuntu :: Can't Boot Acer Aspire One (150) From SDHD Installed In System Expansion Port

Jul 27, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire One and I would like to boot from an SCHD card installed into the system Expansion port. It works fine when used in a USB stick. When I check the boot order the expansion port is not listed as an option. There is an option for doing a network expansion. Are there any bios updates that would read that port on startup?

General :: Installed Ubuntu 10.4 On Acer Aspire 7735 6458?

no internal record or web cam, hence no phone capability either with Skype. Acer will have zero warranty conversations due to OS system change. Previously the machine was crashing mostly while using Open Office

1. When powered on - LED indicating pocressor operation glows for a moment and disappears, few other LEDS indicating batter, music play, forward,stop LEDs glows as as usual,

2. Only blank screen appears

3. tried to switch on the wifi and bluetooth buttons, both did not glow indicating it is not working.

4. Paculiar thing is this symptons appears first time, suddenly all stop glowing and after 2 to 3 seconds again the system comes to this state and remains forever.

Questions:

1. Is it possible to be hardware problem?
2. If it a software problem the suspect can be Ubuntu 10.10 version?

Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Aspire 5050 Operating System Not Found Error?

Jan 7, 2010

I just purchased an Acer Aspire 5050, and was trying to install Ubuntu on it for my mother. (No, I am not forcing it on her, she actually asked for it.) I burned a CD and put it in the drive, and it said Operating System not found. So I went into the BIOS and told it to boot nothing but the optical drive. Same error. I burned another disk with the same computer, and then another computer. Same error. (Hereafter referred to as "nothing")

So I went and purchased a 4GB flash drive from micro center. Converted my iso to img and DDed from my Mac, then set the BIOS to boot it. The BIOS recognizes the disk, but won't boot from it, giving the same error. So I thought: Fine, I guess I can't get _nix to boot, how about Windows 7? Put the disk in that I used to install on my laptop, genuine Windows 7 disk, nothing. I tried the Vista disk that came with the computer, also nothing.

Any ideas on how to install ANY operating system on this machine? I get absolutely no POST errors. I turned off Quiet Boot and looked, no errors there either. I would be fine installing any _nix based, it doesn't have to be an easy install. I can provide more information as needed, not a problem. I can't think of any more useful information at the moment.

General :: To Start On Triple Boot Acer Aspire One Netbook

May 13, 2011

I currently have an Acer Aspire One netbook 120GB drive which came with Linpus lite preloaded. I have set-up dual boot a year or so ago. It now dual boots to either Linpus or Vista (yes I know!) via the Linpus grub.conf ( I got the instructions I think from here: [URL] I want to get the latest Ubuntu 11.04 build on this as a third boot option. If this work OK I may ditch the Linpus or Vista build at some point. So I've used Gparted on a USB drive to setup up three extended Logical Partitions (sda5, 6 and 7).

I then loaded Ubuntu s/w via an external drive with

/boot on 100MB /sda5
Swap on 1GB /sda6
/ on the 40GB+ /sda7

When I was asked for the bootloader location in the Ubuntu install gui I chose /sda5 (out of complete ignorance) All fine at this point. What do I have to get the linpus lite /boot/grub/grub.conf to see and start ubuntu?? Or is there something else I need to do?? Also, how does Ubuntu know which swap partition to use, as there is already one for the linpus lite install.

Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Aspire One - 10.4 Doesn't Boot, But Shows Blinking Cursor?

May 25, 2010

Similar problems to mine have popped up elsewhere, but none of the fixes seem to work (or I'm just too stupid). I tried to see what the people at Canonical and elsewhere came up with for Ubuntu 10.4 and, after the live USB checked out fine, I rather foolishly installed the OS on my Acer Aspire One D250 (1GB RAM), to run alongside Windows XP.

It booted up once, I think, and then no more. I believe the problem MIGHT be the Broadcom WiFi stuff, but I'm not sure. Anyway, booting Ubuntu leads to a blank screen with a blinking cursor... which doesn't appear to go away. Recovery mode worked once or twice (had to use ACPI=OFF at least once), then no more. It leads to the same thing: that perpetually blinking cursor.

What I would like is either a fix to get Ubuntu 10.4 launched, or some way to remove the OS and restore my netbook back to what it was. Unfortunately, the MBR fixes that are posted all over cyberspace are useless, as my hidden partition doesn't contain the rtmbr.bin file it needs to work (don't ask me why--I've already posted that question at the AAO user forum). So it seems a fix to launch Ubuntu is the only solution, so that I can at least set grub to launch Windows XP rather than Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Acer Aspire D250 - Recovery Partition

Nov 13, 2010

I'm thinking of buying an Acer Aspire D250 loaded with Win7 and then adding a version of Ubuntu.

The netbook will come with the Acer recovery facility to reinstall Win7 from a recovery partition in the event of OS failure. This means that the MBR and subsequent loaders need to be preserved for this function to remain (I don't have a Win7 disc and don't want to have to buy one).

I'm happy with a basic Win/Linux dual boot setup but I'd value any comments/suggestions as to how to preserve the recovery function when I add Ubuntu.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Unable To Boot Install DVD On Acer Aspire 5738Z

Jul 23, 2010

I have F11 running on my Acer laptop and I'd like to install F13 on a newly created partition.I have downloaded the DVD install a couple of days ago and tried to boot it using different options, but always failed. Below my attempts:

1) first option (Install or upgrade): it took a looooong time (like 4 or 5 hours) to get to the Loading vmlinuz message; after a couple more hours it was still there (with 4 or 5 dots more) and I decided that enough was enough;

2) second option (basic video driver): I tried it with and without the nomodeset option and in both cases the Loading vmlinuz message was immediate, but couldn't get past it;

3) first option (Install or upgrade) with the nomodeset option: again the Loading vmlinuz message was immediate, it added up to 10 or 11 dots and then hung;

4) I also tried to boot the same DVD on another laptop (just to rule out media problems) and quickly reached the first install screen, so the DVD is ok I think.

Note that in ALL the above described attempts, when the boot process hang I see my HD led constantly on and also the DVD led flashing.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Seem To Get A Fresh Install To Boot On A Acer Aspire T160 Desktop Computer?

Aug 7, 2009

i can't seem to get a fresh install to boot on a Acer Aspire T160 desktop computer, after the install finishes (basic install, command line only) it gets past 'Verifying DMI Pool.......' but then nothing, it just hangs, no Grub messages, nothing. Here is my hardware/config

Proc: Sempron 3200
Mem: 512 MB
/dev/hda1 110GB / Bootable
/dev/hda2 4GB Swap
/dev/md0 150GB /home
/dev/sda1 RAID
/dev/sdb1 RAID

i have tried RAID1 and RAID0 for md0, no change, i've also disconnected the raid all together and just installed on the IDE drive, still nothing. I noticed the BIOS supports hardware RAID but i have that disabled from past experiences and opting for software raid instead. i've gone through 'linux rescue' and reinstalled Grub, rebuilt raids and checked disks.

an interesting thing happens tho if i just have the IDE drive plugged in and nothing else... i get a BIOS message asking to plug in a bootable disk, does this mean it doesn't see my linux install at all? doesn't know to pass the boot along to /dev/hda?

i'm running out of ideas, tho neither have i tried installing to the raid... nor have i tried any other distros (Fedora, Ubuntu) on this machine yet.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Acer Aspire 4810T Laptop - Hardware Brightness Keys System Slowdowns, Software Controls Don't Work

Mar 14, 2011

I have an Acer 4810T laptop with Intel graphics. I run openSUSE 11.3, and am about to upgrade to 11.4. But both systems still have a very bad bug with screen brightness. The Fn+Arrow keys do change screen brightness, but after using them the system is rendered extremely sluggish and unresponsive. This sluggishness is most pronounced with a very important Wine app I need to use. The only way to fix the sluggishness is to reboot. With 11.4, the problem is worse because the system boots and automatically partially dims the screen, thus making it even more necessary to change the brightness. Neither Gnome nor KDE are able to change the brightness via their power managers. This means that I can't dim my screen automatically upon disconnecting the A/C power.

I have read many experiences from Ubuntu and openSUSE users, who all have the same problem. I have tried both intellegacy and the new intel drivers, and they both have the problem. I have read that some users have improved the situation by upgrading or downgrading the BIOS. Others have been experimenting with kernel patches:

Ubuntu :: Get Online With An Acer Aspire 5720?

Jun 9, 2010

The problem now is that I cant get online. I have an Acer Aspire 5720. My network card is called Broadcom BCM4311 802.11b / g WLAN. What do I do? I've googled around and found various forum posts where I'm told that I must write various things in Terminal, which have not yet worked. I have also visited this site, where this is the first step: Open System → Administration → Networking. But the problem is that I can not find the "Networking" under "Administration". I have no experience with Linux what so ever, Ninja-edit: I tried reading through this, but I fell off at Make the .ko file

Ubuntu :: Maverick Installer On Acer Aspire One

Sep 10, 2010

I tried to install the beta version of maverick with no luck. I used usb creator to put maverick on a memory stick. When I went into live mode everything worked perfectly so I thought why not install it. I then tried to do this but after filling out all the required info it wouldn't install. I clicked the install button and the installer froze up. I currently have ubuntu netbook remix (9.04) installed on it in desktop mode. I also, awhile ago, try installing lucid (both desktop and netbook remixes) and had a similar problem with them. They both stalled installing at the 15% mark. Now with this problem with maverick I am wondering why this could be happening. I have used different memory sticks so I have ruled that out as a problem. They all have worked flawlessly and speedily in live mode.

Ubuntu :: Acer Aspire One Wrong Resolution?

Jan 14, 2011

My Acer AspireOne netbook has a native resolution of 1024x600. Most times I start up, the image is 800x480 against the left edge, black bar on the right side, and a repeated image at the bottom. (I can attach a picture if needed.)I've been seeing this problem since Ubuntu 9.10, but it's more common recently with 10.10. If I keep shutting down and powering back on, eventually it will come up in 1024x600 as I desire. If that happens, then I avoid shutting down and only use Suspend instead. However, anytime I need to reboot (for updates, etc.) the 800x480 comes back.

The Acer logo / BIOS splash screen is also in 800x480, but I only see it switch back to 1024x600 after Ubuntu loads and is shut down. (Repeatedly clicking on/off/on/off never results in the resolution changing to 1024x600.) So, I'm still suspicious that Ubuntu is causing this (no hardware). WinXP used to be on this machine, and the problem was never seen.I don't think any proprietary drivers are needed (but I am still a Ubuntu noob.) When the problem is occurring, I see this result for xrandr:

Code:
swope@netbook:~$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 800 x 480, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)[code]....

I haven't been able to find xorg.conf ... but I've read that recent versions of Ubuntu create the content dynamically.Not sure what other details I should be including, at the risk of making this post too long.

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Aspire 1 533-13Dww LAN?

May 16, 2011

I've just installed Ubuntu 10.4 as a dual boot on my Acer Aspire 0ne 533. I have to keep the Windows partition for work, or I'd have just installed Ubuntu. I'm used to plugging in an ethernet cable for the first round of updates until I get the WiFi working, but it just isn't working for me this time. I have a horrid feeling that Windows has a way of hogging the Ethernet card.

I had a look in the forums, and could not find anything referring to this specifically, which is unusual because as far as I can tell the AA1 is a popular machine and lots of people dual boot it. Perhaps it is an easy fix that's been buried in the archives?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 On Acer Aspire One - Really Slow And Freezing

Dec 9, 2010

I recently installed Ubunto 10.10 (the netbook version) onto my Acer Aspire One Netbook. The OS it came with was a very old Red Hat, so I got rid of it. I am a complete Linux newbie, and not having the best experiences so far. Basically, the netbook is completely clean with Ubuntu just installed. It's not got any files on it or any extra software. But it runs REALLY slow.

Boots up pretty quickly, but it takes ages to do anything. It'll either just run ridiculously slowly, or it will run okay for 10 seconds and then not do ANYTHING for the next 10. I have never been able to play an MP3 track without the whole thing freezing, let alone a video.Why is it so bad? The machine's not that old (maybe a year and a half) and the OS is brand new. There's no files or added software on it. What's the problem? Is there anything I can do? It's so frustrating! And it's the the only computer I've got at the moment.
