Hopefully it's still under warranty.

If not try:

reseating / swapping the memory.

Starting the computer with the battery out.

Sounds to me like a motherboard issue based on what you've written.

Earlier today I was using my Acer Aspire with no problems. Now when I try to boot it up, the green power light comes on, the fan starts whirring but thats it. The screen stays black and it can sit there...


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

This can still be fixed by doing power drain.
>Take the battery out of the computer
>Unplug the ac adapter from the computer.
>Press and hold the power button for about 15secs.
>Let go of the power button.
>Put the battery and plug the ac adapter back into the computer.
>Turn the computer back on.

You should get the display to come up. For a more detailed instruction, please visit http://www.fixya.com/support/r6013536-computer_turns_but_no_display

Thank you for choosing FixYa! have a nice day!

Power button goes on and off, and no response


Power drain the computer by removing the battery and power adapter and press the power button for 1 minute. then insert back in the battery also the adapter to your computer and start the computer.

If the solution won't work
, try using flash light on the monitor,if you can see anything on your screen, possible backlight is the problem, however to isolate also the issue you may use an external monitor to check if you can have a video using other monitor and if not? you may contact the tech support of your system for possible mechanical failure.

hope it helps.

please post positive comments and rate.

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.

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.

My monitor will not turn on


Test it with another monitor to see if all is well and if you see things then there is a problem with the LCD.  Come back here for more instructions.
