Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

When i switch on my notebook it reads localhost login;user (automatic login) then -bash;dircolors command not found what is this i carnt even get a home page

Answers :

I'm thinking you have the computer to boot from a network, not the hard drive. You'll have to press the setup key (whichever the screen tells you to press when you start the machine and look for the bios setting that determines the boot order of your devices. In machines with a CD, the order should be CD first and then the hard drive. Unless you are in a corporate network environment, you would not want it to be set to boot from a network. Therefore, the third boot option should be disabled.
