I obtained a Acer Chromebook 11 C740-C4PE from a garage sale. Obviously it's a refugee from some school that discarded old class units to upgrade the school's classroom puters. When I turned it on I got a log in password screen which I couldn't use so I looked for web solutions to wipe or reinstall the OS. Also tried different things (like recover, reset, etc) but it seems I may have "bricked" the SSD according to some terms I see on the web. So now I have a SSD that's still alive and I can actually connect to my home network, but can't enroll into the school org with an email password. Tried using the Google account option but that process tells me no Google account found with my account info. That's weird because I do have a Google account with name and email ID, but evidently it can't be found. Why? So what to do? Buy another 16gb SSD? Tried surfing for one to plug into this Chromebook but it does not seem to be available anywhere for some reason. School enterprise issues again? Maybe I should just chuck this Chromebook but it would be a shame based on reviews I've seen. Any suggestions? Anyone?
