I bought the my Acer Aspire One Netbook 160GB about a month ago and the first thing I did was upgrade the ram to 1.5GB. I started having a problem about a week ago when it goes into hibernate. The computer will go into hibernate normally and then shut off. Once I turn it on it will not detect my hard drive and try to boot from the network giving me the "PXE-E61" error. When I turn off the computer and turn it back on again, it "wakes" up from hibernate normally. I upgraded to the latest BIOS and even tried restoring everything using the Acer utility, but I am still having the same problem. Any ideas on what is happening?

Remove the main battery and power supply charger adapter from the laptop, wait a few minute to get rid of any residual charge, now install the battery, power up! if no change remove battery, next plug the power supply back in, power on, if yes! the main battery is bad and needs replacement. If no change reply to this message so I can help you further. If you having low memory issues, the ram needs to be upgraded.
That system is upgradeable to 2 GB DDR2 RAM (one stick) which would probably help, but if not there's really nothing else upgradeable in that system. Going with the current costs of RAM (when shopping online, like at newegg or zipzoomfly) it would be worth it to upgrade it just to give it a try and see if that does help.
you should be able to press ESC to exit hibernation, or remove the battery, remove the plug, press and hold the power button for 60 sec, and reinsert battery and power and turn on. when restarted, right click on desktop, click properties, and click the screen aver tab, click the power button, click advanced, and remove the check box beside enable hibernation on the "Hibernation" tab. it shouldn't do it again
To determine if you have a faulty LCD screen or a faulty video card, connect an external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first the the laptop. The video output should automatically switch to the external monitor. If you get a normal image then the video card is OK, and the fault is with the LCD screen.
If you still get a bad image, then the fault could be a faulty video card or video RAM. Most laptops use part of the main RAM module for video RAM, try reseating the RAM modules and or test the RAM modules. If the RAM is OK then the fault is the video card.
