I’m having some severe problems with my Acer-Aspire AOA-110 running Linpus Lite v.1.06.E and would be grateful for any pointers.
Earlier today I was testing out an SD card from my camera in the SD slot in order to check that it was being read successfully prior to taking the Aspire away on holiday with me. To cut a long story short it now will not mount the SD card. It is possible (probable?) that the card might not have been properly unmounted from this machine previously, as I did not know how to do it (I now understand that it is a right-click option).
More worryingly the Aspire will also now not read from my Sandisk memory stick, which it would yesterday, it gives the same ‘Cannot mount [etc]’ error. Both of these external drives have previously worked in this machine.
Looking at advice on the web and using a terminal window I tried using DMESG to look at what it returned. I maybe switched from admin user to root user to do this, I do not recall in what mode I left it in.
Nothing came of trying to fix the USB ports and I resigned myself that that was not the end of the world I could make-do without. But now I discover that my Firefox browser won’t load, and frankly that is a terminal fault for me, and as is the Aspire won’t be coming on holiday with me unless at least that can be rectified.
Does anyone have any ideas? I have a feeling it might be loaded with the original Firefox, v3.0 (not 2.0), but I could be mistaken and it is V2.0. I tried to update the browser last year and for what ever reason it failed. As I now can’t open it I am not sure how to check what version it is.
Thoughts much appreciated!
