Charged by connecting charger to acer laptop, powered up, hearing fan, seeing power lit on, still no picture on screen, do you think the backlight burned out??? or something else??? computer is about 4 months old, i don't know why screen went blank all of a sudden...
Try pressing Fn F5 or Fn F6, these usually turn the screen off and on. They usually have little blue rectangles on them, representing the screen. If another F key has the rectangles, try that one while holding the Fn Key. As it froze on you first, it could be more sinister, ie a hardware fault, You could try removing the power and battery for 20 seconds, then try powering on again once you replace them. If all this fails, i'm afraid it ack to the shop for a repair.

I would suspect the battery is failing in this, even with the AC wall plug adapter connected the unit's battery must be good to function correctly, the AC wall charger is designed to charge the battery not power the entire PC laptop.
For the sake of clarity: the battery which will not charge/power your Acer Aspire One Netbook is the original battery that came with the Acer, is this correct? Assuming that the answer is Yes then replacement with a NON Acer, universal battery is the only solution. Reputable internet shops, such as Amazon, have these at around $50... DANGER; Due to the recall of thousands of Acer (HP and others) batteries with a possible fire hazard please dispose of promptly and properly.

Ok A few things to try 1.) Check the laptop on an external monitor, do you get a picture 2.) Is there power to the laptop from the battery and the charger? Try to see if the charger indicator lamp is blinking green rather than steady green 3.) Can you hear hard drive / fan noises and are there any lights on the laptop?
If the charger is blinking, indicates that power is not making the circuit, check tightness of charging port, if tight, assume fault on motherboard / blown main fuse
If picture on external monitor and not on laptop, assume backlight on screen dead or possibly the inverter
If no noises from HDD or Fan and No lights on laptop, then fault with motherboard
If you do get fan noises etc, but get BLINKING lights on laptop, assume possible fault with graphics chip, repost with details of blinking lights / colour and specific model of laptop
If your charger is working properly and the laptop is as well, then the laptop should work without a battery in it at all. If your new battery worked and laptop worked with it until the battery died, then the charger or charge port is damaged.
If it does not work with charger plugged in without a battery, then your charger(s) or the laptop charge port itself may be damage or broken. Or worse, the laptop may be dead.
If the laptop does nothing even with a good battery with charge (no fans, no boot, nothing on-screen, no noises) you're laptop could be dead; likely a burned motherboard or processor. It may have overheated or something along those lines.
I had a problem similar to this with an ACER 7720G laptop going through the motions of starting up but no screen although I could see some fient images and found it to be the wrong charger for the laptop.
Try this: -
If you are connected to the charger disconnect it from the laptop. If the laptop screen comes up you have a problem with the charger. Try another charger and see if the problem exists.
You need to try to isolate the problem. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. Press function screen keys. If you have a picture on your external monitor then you have a video problem - most likely an inverter, although you may need a new screen, unlikely but possible.
If you have no picture then you have a system problem. Disconnect the battery and AC adapter. Remove the memory and reseat. Repower your laptop and see what happens.
If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.
