You will have to disconnect and reconnect the video signal plug located under the upper cover (the one with the power button on it). Best you start with a screwdriver in the very corner).

Additionally I removed a small magnet located under the lid cover (remove 6 screws under rubber placers and lift the lid), which I found next to the video cabling. This could have affected the video signal negatively. Lets see how long this fix lasts.....

im afraid that your screen is broken, but try to move the screen foward and backward littlebit, my friend also have the same problems and only by contact local support using his warranty the problems fix, you may open your laptop to see if something wrong with the wire but i think its not practically good.

After a normal restart yesterday, my Aspire One booted into just a black screen. No POST, no BIOS, no hard drive light activity, just the power button LED on and the fan running fast. I was not very happy…
I went to the Acer Aspire One User Forum and started looking thru the Hardware section. I found this thread Dead aspire one and it looked like many others had a similar experience. After reading many stories of warranty repair or replacement, I was just about to dig up my receipts when I found this post: Re: Dead aspire one.
It seems that a lot of people had success reflashing the BIOS from a USB drive using tools provided by Acer. I don’t know if it’s officially supported by Acer or if it will void your warranty, but if the computer’s a paperweight now anyway, what the hell?
It’s very easy to do, but the steps are a bit unclear so here’s my attempt to make the whole thing painless. This worked for me, but it might not for you, so do this at your own risk.
A working USB thumbdrive you can erase. I used an old 64meg.
UNetbootin. Download from here: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
The files to flash the BIOS. I used the most recent version from here: http://sites.google.com/site/maclesblogspotcom/
Download all the files to an easy to find location.
Steps to prepare the USB drive:
Format the USB drive using the FAT file system, not FAT32.
Start UNetbootin and choose FreeDOS as the distribution. Screenshot here.
Unzip the BIOS files and copy them to the USB drive
Make a copy of the BIOS file and rename it as ZG5IA32.FD (this appears to be very important - my reflash failed until I did the copy & rename)
Reflash the BIOS:
Make sure the AAO is turned off, the battery is attached and the power adaptor is plugged in.
Insert the USB drive
Press and hold FN + ESC and press the power button to turn it on. Release the Fn & ESC keys. The LED in the power button will flash.
Press the power button again once and wait. Mine took ~3 minutes, but I’d advise that you let it sit there for at least 5 minutes just in case your’s takes longer.
When the reflashing is done, the AAO will reboot and, hopefully, you’ll be back to normal.
If it doesn’t work, try reflashing again. The keypress sequence is a little tricky.
If the second try doesn’t work, then you’ll probably have to send it off for repair.
