I have a problem with my Acer Aspire One with Linpus. When ever I boot it up after
having charged the battery, it hangs on boot. I goes throught POST but stop on the screen before the desktop comes up.
Acer have looked at this problem without coming back to me with anything constructive.
I have seen problem on other forums without it being resolved. Not very exp. with linux.
If Acer can't fix it, I don't think that we have much chance Thanks for trusting us this much I assume it's no longer under warranty, else I would request a swap.

Does that screen say anything? Or is it just black? And do you manage to get it right after that (e.g. after another reboot)?

Can you tell us what you need to add to the 'boot string'; next we can try to help you to add it.

1st question. It hangs on the blue aspire one screen (see picture). It still hangs after a reboot. Often I need to reboot many times before it finaly works again. (often takes over half an hours of tries)
2nd question: Not really. Just someone said I could run a string to show if there is a hang or problem with any service or such. hwsetup -v or something like that?...
PS: Acer is full of crap... They fixed our company projector 3 times before it worked. And they know nothing, nothing at all, about their OS Linpus.
I no longer have Linpus installed on my AAO 110. I think that the picture shows the grub screen (my AAO does no longer show it after I installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix); does anything happen when you press <esc> ? You might get a menu; or maybe an error message?
Did you ever try to re-install the operating system from the recovery disk? It might be worth the try, even if Acer might have done that already because that way you're sure that it is done.
If the problem persists, I think that you have a hardware issue at hand and I think that it's the SSD.
hwsetup sounds more like a linux command and I don't think is applicable to the boot string
No keys work during the hang. Total freeze. I used to use the recovery when it happend, but it is every time I charge...
It is not really my laptop, it`s my girlfriends, and she likes the Linpus OS.... Might not be able to reply over the weekend btw.
When you manage to boot, can you make a copy of /boot/grub/menu.lst and post it here (please leave all lines starting with a # out). We might be able to advise on some modifications that might show what the system is doing.
I'm using an Acer Aspire One(AOA110)
I've installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix and that works for me. Linpus Linux is bad! Although the Acer version is more usable than the generic version. Another option is Moblin. Except that it doesn't support 3G yet.
I gave up trying to get Linpus to work properly.
