Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

Acer AoA150 freezes and won't do anything. I've reinstalled Windows and the same thing happens. What should I do?


Answers :

I had a similar problem and here is what i did: 1) Start
2) My Computer
3) View System Information
OR 1) + 2) + 3) = \015\012Fn + F2
4) Hardware
5) Device Manager
6) \015\012Expand: 'Imaging Devices'
7) Right Click: 'Acer Crystal Eye webcam' Select: \015\012'Update Driver'
8) Select: 'No, not this time'
9) Select: 'Install from \015\012specific location'
10) Select: 'Don't search, I will choose the driver to \015\012install'
11) Select: 'USB Composite Device'
12) Restart the computer (you \015\012should be prompted to restart)

NOTE:
After doing this \015\012procedure:
Start > My Computer will show 'USB Video Device' under \015\012'Scanners and Cameras'
Expanding 'Imaging Devices' (step# 6) will show 'USB \015\012Video Device'

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam will now appear under 'Universal \015\012Serial Bus controllers' (the list in 'Device Manager' step# 5)
If you wish to \015\012re-enable the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam then follow the procedure from Step \015\0127)

Further Note:
I got my BIOS updated to Version 0.3309 (Acer \015\012did it) in the hope that it would fix this StandBy problem but the BIOS update \015\012did not fix it.
I then changed the WebCam settings which fixed it. \015\012
But, I don't know if it is necessary to have this BIOS update done as \015\012well.
Someone else can probably tell you how to flash/update the BIOS \015\012yourself, I found it too scary and did not have the proper 'ingredients' anyway \015\012wink.gif
