If it is brand new, I would suggest taking it back to whomever you bought it from and have them replace it or figure out the problem. Should still be under warranty.
Hope this helps and have agoodone!

Black screen on acer aspire one series zg5


You should contact Acer. They know they have a display problen with the Acer Aspire One that can be fixed with a BIOS upgrade. We got our done. They sent us a USB thumb drive with the files and instructions on how to boot the thumb drive. After a couple of minutes the Acer restarted and all is fine.

Need help for Acer Aspire ONE MODEL # ZG5 screen does not work?My Acer Aspire ONE MODEL # ZG5 notebook is show that the power is on, but the screen is black. I can hear the computer running, but there is...


If you are sure the computer is running then connect an external monitor to the laptop. You will have to select the external using your Function keys FN + F7 or F8. If you can now see your machine on the external monitor then you know it's the screen portion of your laptop that is faulty. If this does not work then the sounds you are hereing are probably just the fan and the hard drive spinning. These are not an indication that the computer is working. All in all, I would say that the laptop needs to see a pro.
