First, make sure that there aren't any discs in any of the drives. (I don't suppose it comes with a floppy, but if it does, make sure that there is no disc in it.) Acer's usually don't come with restore cds, instead they use a recovery partition, which you can access by holding alt and F-10 immediately after powering on. This process will restore the drive to the factory condition, which will destroy whatever newer data is on it. (Good thing you've been backing up on a regular basis, eh?

Unfortunately you must get in touch with acer to reset the password. There is no back door password, those worked in 1999, they are soon 12 year old codes.

Check whether your harddisk is working fine. If it is, try reinstalling the operating system once more.

Acer aspire one will not work.


Hi,

If you get a post screen with Acer written on it at startup, and the screen turns off when loading the system (Windows or Linux), then you need to reinstall the system using an external USB cd unit and the recovery disk that was provided with your Acer.

If instead the display has no screen at all , try connecting an external monitor to test the laptop.

If you get picture on external monitor, then the Aspire One has a faulty LCD ribbon cable or a faulty LCD display or inverter.

If you get no picture on external screen , then you have a faulty motherboard, possibly faulty video chipset on motherboard.

In any case check your Acer One warranty, all the faults listed are covered by Acer warranty for one year.
Contact Acer at the number listed on documentation to have the computer repaired.
