When the laptop is powered on, I get the ACER spash screen and that's it. The screen will occassionally do funny things like splitting in half with ACER showing on both halves but goes no further. Any idea what the problem may be? I've gotten the same results with and without the battery present in the laptop. Thanks for whatever help can be provided!!!

Let me share my experience ...my net book went black....if u own a acer one..... please install the newest bios....if not it will empty it,s self in the first year of ownership and no bios /no screen.....funny that Acer didnt update the Bios after learning about this sensless defect to buyers...go to www.acer.com for more details or just google ...Acer one with black screen
Acer have a funny litttle problem at times where they static shock themselves of shutdown, what you can try to correct this is remove the power cord, remove the battery, open the lid to expose the power button and press (at the same time) power alt esc and hold for 30 sec, now leave the notebook alone for about 5 mins, reinsert your battery and the unit should power up, if it does not it could be something more serious like a fauly ram module or mainboard, but try the battery thing first, its more or less a 9/10 fix here at the shop.
Acer Blank screen at startupMy Acer Aspire One notebook goes to a blank screen at startup. BIOS Recovery System
awful as it sounds, this is a fairly common problem with Acer Aspire
notebooks and it sounds like you have an issue with the BIOS - as long
as you can see the power button and hear the fans running to indicate
that it is not a power issue. Luckily, these notebooks come with a
built-in BIOS recovery system that should get you up and running without
damaging or losing any of your files. Know that doing this may void
your warranty, so if you have a warranty, you should talk to Acer
directly. Follow these steps EXACTLY, and it should work for you:
Format a USB memory stick to FAT. Make sure it is bootable.
Put the FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the memory stick.
Rename the BIOS file: ZG5IA32.FD. It is important that you get the file name exactly right.
Remove the drive.
Turn the Acer off, but make sure you have a working battery and AC power connected.
Insert the USB memory stick into a USB port.
Press Fn+Esc and press the Power button at the same time. After a few seconds, release Fn+Esc.
The power button should be blinking. Press it once.
At this point, the BIOS will flash - don't press anything or
interrupt this process. If you've done it right, the power button will
stop flashing and the notebook will reboot. When it is all done,
everything should be set to reboot.
Because you have an Acer Aspire One and you are getting the blank
boot screen, I'm betting that this will solve your problem. If you are
still having problems after following these directions exactly, then let
us know and we can try to troubleshoot hardware or screen issues that
may be the culprit.
It sounds like the Acer logo has been turned off in the bios settings. As soon as you hit the power button, start tapping the F2 key until you see the test appear "entering setup". Once you are in the BIOS, look for the Logo settings as far as being visible during Boot up. I've seen this setting on other systems so I am thinking the Acer should be similiar.
