replace the battery. Batteries usually only last about two years and it sounds like it just cant hold any more juice. To find a battery go to google.com and type in the model of computer and push search. Sorry for the news but its an easy fix

This is a common problem with the Acer Aspire one. Apparently, the BIOS needs to be flashed using a flash disk with the required files.
Unfortunately, the files are not available at any website but you can take the Aspire one to any Acer service center and they should be able to flash the BIOS for you free of cost.

Monitor: if the inverters were blown, you would be unable to use clamps as a workaround. I suspect a lose or broken contact to the display wafer caused by rough handling of the laptop. This is delicate stuff, you cannot repair without specialized tools and usually its simpler and cheaper to swap the panel for a new one.
Charger: try to remove the battery and connect the charger. Check if the laptop starts now. If yes, the battery probably reached its end of life and drains so much power during inefficient charge that the power supply has not enough extra strength to run the laptop on top. Only one hour of run time hints to a degraded battery, too.
Replace the battery with a new one and check if the problem persists.
If the laptop does not run with charger and without battery, the power regulation in the laptop is fried.
Since there is more than one defect already (replacement batteries are not cheap, too), you should consider to contact Acer repair services. In my experience they provide reasonable priced repairs; they give you a quotation for a small fee before they actually repair the thing, so you can decide how to proceed.
Check if they have a repair site in your vicinity. I went to Acer Hong Kong in 2005 with similar problems and a few days later picked up my machine, repaired to my satisfaction and with a full report what was wrong.
