There are couple of troubleshootig steps which needs to be performed inorder to help get a web page load faster.

Go to Tools/options/ and delete the history, cached pages, cookies, password etc. Might want to ignore favourites.

Also type temp in run command line and then delete the files from the folder. This helps to increase the processing speed as well as the browsing speed of the accer.

This works with IE 6/7/8 though.

If not, reseat the ram and see if that helps. Otherwise, it might be a bad power supply.

If you are using the supplied Acer program to setup your wireless, I would suggest removing the program. In most cases, removing their software does not remove the drivers, and thus, Windows Zero Configuration will take over the wireless.
WZC, in my opinion, works very reliably and has solved this type of issue in the past, although it is not the only reason for disconnects. For instance; a weak signal and a lot of interference from neighboring networks can cause your wireless to become unstable.
If this doesn't fix your connection issue, you may have an issue with the wireless card itself.

There are two way's you can restore your laptop,

When you power on your laptop the acer splash screen pop's up, at that time press the -Alt- key and F10 key at the same time,
at the eRecovery Management menu it should ask you how you want to restore, click on the restore option, or

From the window's desktop click on start, then all program's, then acer Empowering Technology, click on Acer eRecovery Management, create a password, click on restore, then click on restore system to factroy default.

Have had similar problems with two Gateways that are actually Acer--both two feet away on either side of each other: one or the other will lose connection--so not the units---if move the one not connecting closer (it is 50 feet with 3 walls between it and router) it will then pick up the wireless and work fine--I answer about 300 questions here each week so end up to avoid this in the mud/laundry room where I can depend on the signal and also have a smoke if I want.

May want to as a test move it closer to the router and see if same issue or not.

The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Try booting in safe mode (press F5 after Acer logo is gone)
Then do a system restore.
That might fix the problem.

You can speed up your netbook by:

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Hi John,
To start off check your disc space. XP has this paging file that builds up over time and use. It also depends on the applications that you install and if it is running in the background. These are the applications that is activated every time you start up your machine.
You may also check on the amount of RAM you have in your system. Lets say you have 2 gb installed, around 500 mb or more is already assigned to your hardware and operating system. So that means you have 1.5 gb of RAM left for other applications and processes. So lets say you watch a few videos, and play a lot of flash games, your RAM will slowly be spent up. Once your RAM runs out, your hard disc space will act as your system RAM as virtual memory. So if your going to be using a lot of applications that takes a lot of resources for your RAM, it will be real slow in the long run. You do have the option to close a few unwanted applications, or do a system restart to refresh your system.
So now you'll be wondering, if you need to do that all the time now? Not exactly, remember the applications automatically start up once you on your machine? You can customize that to your liking now. There's two ways. First, you need to customize your installation wherein you select the option not to run the application automatically on Start. The second one is to remove the application from start up. One was is by removing it in Msconfig in windows. To launch it, just click on Start, then select Run, then Type Msconfig. You will then see a screen where you can see the start up items. Then just select the Start up applications that you don't want to open anymore on Start and untick it...and...Thats a lot of start eh....then you'll be doing a restart. For kicks, try to untick all and see how fast your system loads up.
Are you getting the picture now? Lesser applications on start up, more RAM for your system. SO just open up what you need and close what you don't.
And then there's the browser helpers, trial applications, and other stuff thats just there, installed in your computer. Just remove all that is unneeded! Imagine a room full of stuff you don't really need. Its messy. That also happens to your machine.
Anti-Malware and Windows Update. This goes hand in hand, better invest in an AntiVirus or Anti Malware subscription to protect you from the typical trojan or malware. Then do regular windows updates, to patch your system. Scan often and update often.
Lastly, delete unwanted files, it's just adding to your disc space. Do disc clean up and Defragment your discs every 3 weeks if possible. It is also best to shutdown your machine after use so once you start it up again, its fresh.
