This is actually a common problem with this model, but don't worry because there is an easy solution! All you need is a USB flashdrive, and another PC with internet access. Go to the acer support website and download the BIOS update for the Acer One ZG5. It will list the instructions for how to copy it to your flashdrive and install it on your Acer One. It only takes about 5 or 10 minutes and you will be up in running again!! Hope this helps you out.....

Are you hearing any beeping noises or sounds when the laptop starts?
Are there any flashing lights or is the laptop just dead?

If you are hearing start up noises It might be that backlight, or the Inverter in the LCD has gone bad. Try plugging an external monitor into the laptop to make sure the screen is not faulty. Basically if you get a picture, you have a faulty LCD. (you may have to push the FN and another key (usually an F key ex F1, F2) to get your laptop to switch to external monitor mode)

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.

SOURCE: I have an Acer Aspire one model zg5- Power cord

Here is another thing you can try. Unplug the power cord, and then remove the battery. Press the "Start" button and hold for 5 seconds. Replace the battery back into the computer and plug in the power cord. Start the machine and see if the low battery message still comes up. Sometimes the program that monitors the battery status gets confused. Doing the above should straighten it out. The Acer should start up and the AC power light should be lit. Look down in your task bar for the battery Icon or go to Battery Status in Control Panel and see if it shows that the battery is charging. Even newer batteries can go bad (rare) but if this is the case and a cell has shorted out in the battery, then your only recourse is exchange under warranty.

Ebay is full of them, just watch the location and skip the ones made and shipped from Hong Kong, Good ones and one that will last do not cost 18 bucks, search for original Acer chargers and spend the extra funds.

You're going to need to boot it from the Windows XP installation disk, which means if you don't have a CD drive you'll need to get an external CD-ROM drive. This will fix the problem.

you do not need to replace the converter- As long as your screen is just cracked then the converter is fine. Converter may be bad if your screen is really dim or just blank.

Can't find the equivalent model numbers for Aspire One ZG5


From ACER FAQs:

The Aspire One systems labeled with the model ZG5 are actually an Aspire One AOA110 or an Aspire One AOA150. Any information will be listed under AOA110 and AOA150, rather than ZG5.
The supportmodel number is located on the bottom of the netbook on a white label above the serial number. Alternatively, the support model number will be located in the BIOS which can be entered by pressing the F2 key when turning the netbook on. Once in the BIOS it will be under the Information tab to the right of Product Name
