To repair corrupted system file/s, boot up with the Windows installation CD then -
Press R to repair when instructed.
Press 1 or Enter to repair the C:\Windows folder.
Then type chkdsk /r and then press Enter.
The repair process will take quite a long time.

SOURCE: Aspire One PC Notebook: My acer one aspire turns on but screen stays black...

Try this for the black screen of death problem...

Here’s what you need:

  1. USB Memory stick (as low as 128mb)
  2. Another PC with a net connection
  3. WinZip, WinRAR, or some other program that can extract zip files.
  4. A quick visit towww.acer.com
  5. Your Acer Aspire One, that will power up/turn on, but the screen does not come on.
And here’s what you do:
  1. Go to www.acer.com and go through the DRIVER support pages until you get the Aspire One driver page for your relevant Aspire One model (110/150/751)
  2. Click on the tab on the download area that reads ‘BIOS’ even if it looks like you can’t click on it (their site design grays it out but it’s there) and download the BIOS file numbered 3310 (it might have changed version recently but do it) and don’t worry, you can trust this file, as it’s from Acer directly.
  3. Extract the zip once downloaded and find in the DOS folder the files ‘flashit.exe’ and 3310.fd
  4. When you’s ve found them, rename 3310.fd to ZG5IA32.fd and put this renamed file and ‘flashit.exe’ onto the USB memory stick
  5. Put the USB in the Aspire One and hold the keys ‘FN’ (function) and ‘Esc’ (escape) and keep them held when you turn the laptop on
  6. Watch the power button and when it starts flashing, press it once (DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE)
  7. You should notice the USB (if it has a light) blinking as well… The netbook has started ‘flashing’ the BIOS and after about 7 minutes, the netbook should shutdown and reboot itself and VOILA! The screen should turn on just fine.
It took my three times but this IS the proper solution! I am now very happy with my Aspire One that still works!

I have been fixing computers that has long beeps and short ones. It is usually attributed to memory problem connection. Open the memory compartment at the back of the PC then detach the memory card. Clean with cloth softly enough not to destroy the circuit board or a pencil eraser to clean-up dust that caused the connection blockade. Reconnect after cleaning.

SOURCE: Screen problems on Acer Aspire 5740

I don't know that it is a common fault with this specific model, but laptops in general have this issue mostly due to a dying LCD power inverter. It is typicaly located at the bottom of the LCD screen and costs between $30 - $75 dollars for the part, and usually $75-$150 for someone to replace. If you like the laptop it is usually worth it to have replaced. You can also hook up a monitor to the VGA port on the laptop and then go into your display control panel and enable 2nd monitor to use it instead of your laptop lcd.

Why won't my notebook display any picture on the screen or anything


I assume your screen is completely black and maybe doesn't show the flashing cursor? It could ether be the graphics/video chip at fault, or a hard drive or motherboard fault. It could even be the screen itself.
Does it sound as if your laptop is actually booting up, even though you can see nothing on the screen?
If you can, connect your laptop to a computer monitor (a cable will be required). If your display works on the computer monitor it's probably your video/graphic chip at fault.
If the screen is still black after connecting to an external monitor the chances are that it is a hard drive or motherboard fault.
Don't rush off and buy a replacement hard drive and motherboard. It makes more sense to take your laptop to a shop, pay for an inspection and they will tell you exactly what the fault is.

I have an acer aspire 3000 I logged off last night and today went to turn it on it powers up but it won't display anything just a black screen


I think your OS might have gone..... So try installing an OS CD in it and see if it displays something or not. If not then your display is gone. You have to repair it in a repairing shop.
