    Its not windows, acer notebook is linux maybe? i know its not windows. i can run the bios but instantly turns screen off if i try to boot the system. I have no safe mode to boot it in and no other options. 20 updates came, installed. then my notebook froze, i restarted it and now it wont boot the OS. must be a software issue but cant get round it

    No, nothing. Once its past the bios the system actually freezes. If i turn the caps lock on when its loading then try to turn it off after the bios, it stays on so its not a problem with the screen either

Right after the BIOS or POST keep pressing F8 do you get the option to go into safe mode?

    If that is the case then that means that there may be a short on the laptop like my own laptop where it freezes right after POST then pressing any keys randomly allows it to boot.

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.

Acer aspire one model ZG5 does not boot


After a normal restart yesterday, my Aspire One booted into just a black screen. No POST, no BIOS, no hard drive light activity, just the power button LED on and the fan running fast. I was not very happy…

I went to the Acer Aspire One User Forum and started looking thru the Hardware section. I found this thread Dead aspire one and it looked like many others had a similar experience. After reading many stories of warranty repair or replacement, I was just about to dig up my receipts when I found this post: Re: Dead aspire one.

It seems that a lot of people had success reflashing the BIOS from a USB drive using tools provided by Acer. I don’t know if it’s officially supported by Acer or if it will void your warranty, but if the computer’s a paperweight now anyway, what the hell?

It’s very easy to do, but the steps are a bit unclear so here’s my attempt to make the whole thing painless. This worked for me, but it might not for you, so do this at your own risk.

You need:
A working USB thumbdrive you can erase. I used an old 64meg.
UNetbootin. Download from here: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
The files to flash the BIOS. I used the most recent version from here: http://sites.google.com/site/maclesblogspotcom/

Download all the files to an easy to find location.

Steps to prepare the USB drive:
Format the USB drive using the FAT file system, not FAT32.
Start UNetbootin and choose FreeDOS as the distribution. Screenshot here.
Unzip the BIOS files and copy them to the USB drive
Make a copy of the BIOS file and rename it as ZG5IA32.FD (this appears to be very important - my reflash failed until I did the copy & rename)

Reflash the BIOS:
Make sure the AAO is turned off, the battery is attached and the power adaptor is plugged in.
Insert the USB drive
Press and hold FN + ESC and press the power button to turn it on. Release the Fn & ESC keys. The LED in the power button will flash.
Press the power button again once and wait. Mine took ~3 minutes, but I’d advise that you let it sit there for at least 5 minutes just in case your’s takes longer.

When the reflashing is done, the AAO will reboot and, hopefully, you’ll be back to normal.

If it doesn’t work, try reflashing again. The keypress sequence is a little tricky.

If the second try doesn’t work, then you’ll probably have to send it off for repair.

Good luck!!!

Hi from london, have new acer aspire 1 zg5 new keeps shutting down after boot can u hlp pls?


Try booting the system to Safe mode.

To boot to safe mode:
Restart the computer. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, keep tapping on F8 key on your keyboard. When the Windows Options menu appears select the "Safe mode" then press Enter.

Once you managed to boot to Safe mode, change the computer startup and recovery settings by right-clicking "My Computer" then select Properties. Select Advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings. Uncheck the box for "Automatically restart" under System Failure.

Reboot again normally, see if it will reboot again by itself. If you managed to make the system boot normally, proceed to Events Viewer to find out what is the caused.

If the system failed to boot normally after doing the above, you might want to boot the system to "Last known good configuration"
