I left my aspire one (2 months old) charging overnight and now when i boot it nothing happens on the screen, no light at all. I can hear something happening inside but it's hard to tell if it's as loud as it normally is when booting.

When a computer does not boot up, but the battery is charging, it could be a CPU or RAM problem. Re-seat the RAM modules, this will make sure it makes proper connection to the motherboard. Next try removing the battery and power up the laptop with just the power adapter connected. If it boots up then insert the battery while it is powered up.
Hello, I have an old Acer Aspire 3680, the problem is once i press the power button the screen is frozen displaying only the Acer logo, i cannot even go to the BIOS (pressing F2) to change my setting to boot from a CD. Please help. THX
A blinking battery light usually means the battery will not take a charge from the system. When this happens the most likely cause is a shorted cell in the battery. Since it is under Acer warranty contact tech support and they will send you a replacement battery. Batteries normally last 2-3 years but you could have a factory defect in yours that just showed up after a little bit of use.

Hi When you first turn the machine on hit F2, that will take you into the bios menu, i don't know what version your machine is using, but the information is usually on the first page, you should find it easy enough because it will be next to the CD/DVD drive.
Sounds like it may be the FSB. I had the same sort of problem, though my Aspire was only a few months old and therefore covered under Acer's warranty, but I also have after sales repair insurance too. Either way, I would strongly suggest that you get an engineer to take a look
If it won't go past the login screen, you should try restoring it from CD first, and then replacing the hard drive if that doesn't work. I don't have all the details, but from what you describe I don't agree with the motherboard diagnosis.
