Thanks for confirming it is the same issue  :) - I didn't want to do anything else in case it made it worse...

I have the bios and have done the procedure that worked before several times now but it hasn't worked so far. Is it just a case of repeating it until it takes/the timing of releasing Fn + alt and pressing the power button is right?

Thanks for replying!  :)

I mean the screen is black but I can hear the fan and the power button lights up green. Even if I leave it for ages nothing happens with the screen... Hope that is clearer? Thanks again.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for posting this... I had Peppermint 3 up and running beautifully... First time in ages I had been able to use my Acer One Aspire to access so many web sites... Then I switched it off and now it won't boot up again. I did used to have this problem when running the manufacturer-installed OS (I am a real novice with computers so forgive the lack of terminology) - the netbook would suddenly refuse to boot up - something I had to fix by flashing bios (a fix I found on a forum).

Any ideas what I can do next gratefully received?! Hope the answer isn't don't mess around with your computer if you don't know what you're doing... I am trying to learn a bit more...

I didn't think it would make any difference but I couldn't get one of the installation steps to work? The one about the SD card...

Thanks so much!

Betty
