Not sure if anyone can help, but thought I'd put this out there, and hope for the best....
I purchased a used Acer Aspire One D255.
The thing 'looked brand new. The box was intact, the instructions were still in their shrinkwrap….
Got it home, and discovered that:
a) the battery does not seem to be charging...the person that I bought it from swears that it was charging last time their parents used it, a "long time ago". I'm wondering if there is a setting that is set incorrectly, or maybe the battery is just shot.
b) there are several websites that I am unable to get to. I keep on getting error messages that refer back to 'security protocols', and tell me to contact the 'system administrator' (me)….
The tablet is running windows XP, it is 1gb ram.
I have disabled windows firewall and other security software.
I know it is not a problem with my home network, as I have several other computers (including one much older laptop, running XP, that I am able to access my banking on) that run perfectly fine.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated!!
