Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
OK Let's be simple. Acer Aspire One. had about 45 days - have bougfh 4 3 for gifts one for me. after about 3 minutes all video dissapates into blocks of blue - grey. I can boot to external monitor but in safe mode only - does not give me opportunity to do much else. Other than safe mode not even external monitor is avail. Seems to run hot
This could be 1 of 2 problems, lets start with the first.
#1 Bad display drivers
Boot the laptop into safe ( i am assuming you know how to do this by your post ) on the computer icon, right click and select manage, a new window will pop up and then select device manager, the list will populate with hardware that installed on the PC, look down the list for display adapters and click on the + sign on the left hand side to open the tree, then right click on the display adapter and select uninstall. Now restart the laptop and let it boot up as normal, if the display drivers were bad it will boot with the screen resolution as large, once you log in it should auto detect the display and install the drivers (you may have give it permission) if this works then that was the problem.
#2 Faulty graphics card.
Take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for repair as there will be nothing you can do about this kind of hardware failure.
Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have been working with three of the aspire ones and have not run into display issues. I would agree that it sounds like a hardware issue, either with the cooling unit or more likely with the display driver.
As for the external monitor, it is quite possible that the screen resolution is not matching between the two monitors when not in safe mode. In particular, the aspire one uses a funny 1024x600 which probably does not match the aspect resolution of most monitors.
