    I contacted acer they told me this is a problem i have to pay for reguardless of warranty..they also told me that they would need my credit card number to hold 400.00 and after looking at my laptop they would then fix it ..i didnt even pay 400 for the laptop itself.... that seems a bit odd to me

Contact Acer directly. If it's a Model One, that means it cannot be too old, and should be under warranty still.

So give them a call, or email them from their site, but don't wait too long to ask them for help.

The screen is the most expensive part on a laptop, so you want to get them to fix it while it is still covered, rather than wait so long that they no longer cover this for you.

    The only other suggestion I have is to contact the store where you bought the unit, and see if they will cover it. And last, many credit cards provide a warranty over and above the one from the manufacturer. See if the card you used - if you used a credit card - has this provision and coverage and, if they do, use it.

    I am very sorry that I cannot suggest anything better than this.

I need a motherboard for an acer 8.9" netbook,
Also a few people selling fully working ZG5's for in the mid $40 range... might as well try to just buy a newish one on ebay.
There is one listed with a broken screen for $46, even if the screen is busted the motherboard should be intact.
Best of luck!
Comment if you have any further questions.

Hello i have an Acer Aspire One model zg5 netbook

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.

Acer aspire one model zg5 battery won't charge

I have exactly the same problem and am searching at the same time as you. I think you are wrong. I think the 150 is for the larger screen model. I think we need the 110.

I think it's this one that i found at acer-euro

but I'm afraid to use it (which is not to say I know how). Somthing about putting it onto a USB drive and running scripts. At least that's what they do with this problem on a 150
