Acer Aspire One Won't Load OS

\015 After not using my Acer Aspire One for a couple of weeks, I pulled it\015\012out today and plugged the battery in to charge and noticed its not\015\012charging. (the light stays orange). \015\012I have it setup to dual boot Debian and XP, so I turn it on and choose debian, it start loading and around the 'loading the kernel message', it turns the machine off. So now I restart it and choose to boot into XP and it loads and stops at the first XP graphical screen where it show 'Windows XP' and the thing at the bottom is moving back and forth.It keeps doing this and now I'm not sure what is happening. I've taking the battery pack out and try using only the power cord and same thing.\015

Answers :

I have the same acer laptop. I had the same exact problem you describe. try this:while windows screen is stuck on the screen looking like it's trying to boot up, hold down the Fn key and hit f7. I believe the problem to be a bad touch panel, or it's interface. Everything works fine with a usb mouse hooked up. I strongly suspect a simple pinched ribbon cable to the touchpad or, some other bad connection. Hopes this is of some help to you......................take care
If you set it up with a dual boot, I recommend dropping in your discs and doing a repair to your OS's. Try the Debian first. I have a couple multi boot systems that have acted similarly, and when I reload the Linux Kernal, it fixes the boot record and everything runs well. If you're getting to the point that your Kernals are loading, your BIOS is fine and you're computer is passing it's POST test so the hardware is checking out. Another thing that it could easily be is your power supply. I NEVER recommend plugging in your laptop without the battery installed. Many laptops run off the battery at all times, the power supply is just continually recharging them as it's used. Giving the computer power without the battery plugged in could/would overload the circuits and voltage regulators all over the motherboard and you could EASILY damage your computer. Try swapping out your power supply with another one to make sure that isn't the issue. If neither of these attempts work (reloading the OS's/changing out the Power supply) then I recommend returning it for a warranty repair. \015\012(P.S. If you've dropped it or banged it around at all and have a traditional hard disk drive, they damage rather easily. You'll find out about that though when trying to reload the OS's. They'll tell you if it's not running properly.)
