SOURCE: Aspire One PC Notebook: My acer one aspire turns on but screen stays black...

Try this for the black screen of death problem...

Here’s what you need:

  1. USB Memory stick (as low as 128mb)
  2. Another PC with a net connection
  3. WinZip, WinRAR, or some other program that can extract zip files.
  4. A quick visit towww.acer.com
  5. Your Acer Aspire One, that will power up/turn on, but the screen does not come on.
And here’s what you do:
  1. Go to www.acer.com and go through the DRIVER support pages until you get the Aspire One driver page for your relevant Aspire One model (110/150/751)
  2. Click on the tab on the download area that reads ‘BIOS’ even if it looks like you can’t click on it (their site design grays it out but it’s there) and download the BIOS file numbered 3310 (it might have changed version recently but do it) and don’t worry, you can trust this file, as it’s from Acer directly.
  3. Extract the zip once downloaded and find in the DOS folder the files ‘flashit.exe’ and 3310.fd
  4. When you’s ve found them, rename 3310.fd to ZG5IA32.fd and put this renamed file and ‘flashit.exe’ onto the USB memory stick
  5. Put the USB in the Aspire One and hold the keys ‘FN’ (function) and ‘Esc’ (escape) and keep them held when you turn the laptop on
  6. Watch the power button and when it starts flashing, press it once (DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE)
  7. You should notice the USB (if it has a light) blinking as well… The netbook has started ‘flashing’ the BIOS and after about 7 minutes, the netbook should shutdown and reboot itself and VOILA! The screen should turn on just fine.
It took my three times but this IS the proper solution! I am now very happy with my Aspire One that still works!

I have a Acer Aspire One Notebook ZG5 , My screen just stays black ,What do I do to get the screen to have a picture again?


You might have to check your display drive.If a reset by removing battery off some time will not bring back the display.It can be the LCD pannel failure ,the flexible chords to the display which goes through the hinges could be damaged,or failure in the display drive.

My acer 3400 boots but after the windows screen it just stays black, the cursor is responsive. it does the same when i boot last good config and safe mode. any ideas?


My guess is that you used this with a separate monitor. If you have, try plugging it back into a a external monitor and see if the laptop displays on it. If this works you can now pull up you video settings and set it to display on your laptop.

Acer aspire one power button comes on but screen doesn't come on.


1/ Take a close look at the display in bright light; can you see anything there? (If so then the CCFL (or its power supply) needs replacing on the display
2/ hook up an external monitor and see if that works (or at least if the light stays green on the monitor)
3/ Any boot beep? any "Windows sound"?
4/ try removing the battery and (using only external power) see if it starts.
4/ remove the battery AND the external supply, hold the power switch in at least 30 seconds. Hoojk it up again, try it.

Screen stays black


when you first power on do you see bios info on the screen? if not (since its a laptop) chances are onboard video card maybe bad.
if you do see it do you see windows start showing at all? in either case wether you see it or not try booting up in safe mode (start hitting F8 key right after bios goes away) and if it works. if you are able to see screen in safe mode chances are drivers are corrupt i would say go in device manage and uninstall display adapter and restart computer and let it boot normally and see it make any difference... if it works get new drivers from manufacturer and install.

let me know if it helps.

Acer aspire 5220 booting problem


Try connecting to an external monitor. If it displays on the external monitor then the LCD is probably dead. If it doesn't display on the external monitor, its a problem with the video card.
