Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not, Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not, Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Your router could be going bad, if everything else has remained the same. I would check for malware and other unwanted programs. They could be messing with your performance. A suggestion--go to www. malwarebytes.org and download the free malware checker. That sure might help.
Contact Acer and they will replace it free providing you can produce a proof of purchase less than one year old. Those netbooks have one year parts and labour warranty on them and Acer is very good about replacements like this.It shouldn't be a problem.
Linux-based Acer Aspire One Non-Charging Battery Solution
STEP 1: On a separate PC: 1. Go to www.support.acer.com or http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/ 2. Click on Driver & Downloads 3. Select Product Family “Netbook” 4. Select Product Line Aspire One 5. Select your Product Model i.e.: AOA150 (located under your computer, after MFG.Date:xxxx AOA 150 – xxxx) 6. Click on the BIOS tab below (don't worry if you don't see Linux listed – BIOS is OS-independent) 7. Download BIOS to a temporary folder on your PC 8. Extract and make sure you know where you put the extracted files.You will only need three of them.
STEP 2: On a separate PC: 1. Ensure a USB memory stick is plugged in and run UNetbootin by downloading and running from: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ 2. It will prompt for a “Distribution” – change this to “FreeDOS”. 3. At the bottom of the window ensure the “Type” is “USB Drive” and check the “Drive” is the drive letter of your USB memory stick. 4. Click on “OK” and FreeDOS will be installed onto the USB drive.At the end don't Reboot. 5. Now copy some of the extracted BIOS files onto the USB drive as well.The only files you need copy are three: go to the sub folder BIOS_ACER_3310_Windows_AOA110 & AOA150/Dos_Flash, and copy the files 3310.BAT, 3310.fd and FLASHIT.EXE to the USB stick 6. Remove your USB stick from the PC, and plug into into your switched-off Acer.
STEP 3: On your Acer: 1. Reboot the Acer and press F2 at the initial “splash screen” to go into the BIOS settings. 2. Once in the BIOS arrow across to select the Boot Menu and move the USB HDD to the top of the list (using F5 and F6 to move them up and down). (I also moved USB FDD and USB CD-ROM) 3. Press F10 to save and exit. 4. Your Acer should now boot from the USB stick. 5. The FreeDOS screen will appear with an option to select a default option. Do this. 6. You will now be presented with a list of boot options – select option 5 (FreeDOS Live CD). 7. You'll get an error message about missing CD-ROM, which you can ignore and you'll be at the DOS A: prompt. 8. At the DOS prompt go to the B: drive (i.e. type “b:”, without quotes, and hit enter – the B: drive is you USB stick) and run the the 3310.BAT script (i.e. type 3310.BAT, without the quotes, and hit enter. 9. The BIOS should now install and reboot your Acer.Click on Settings and then System to check your BIOS has updated. 10. Restart your Acer and repeat 1. and 2. above just to make sure the Boot priority order has your hard drive at the top of the screen.It will probably have reverted automatically to the original order.If not, use F5 and F6 to put back in the original order.
Hi there. Because the machine is only one month old i would recommend that you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for repair, it won't cost you anything to do this as this sounds like a serious hardware problem or failure which is not of your doing. Telling you to open the laptop will only void your warranty so this is not recommended. Your computer will only be away for a week or so and i know it could be a pain not having it there, but for peace of mind this is the correct procedure.
This may be a battery power monitor issue. Try disabling the "Mircosoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery" device. This is located in Control Panel-->System-->Hardware Tab-->Device Manager-->Batteries. Had similar problem with 2 Acer Aspire series laptops (diff models). 2 and 3 year old. Original batteries (both still hold charges for 1.5 hrs of normal usage). Running WinXP, one with SP2 and other had SP3. Both came in the last month with slow jerky TPAD function and nearly non responsive keyboard access. Checked the usual; virus, spyware, hijacking, driver conflict etc. Cloned drive and factory installed..still same problem with kb & mouse. However an external USB keyboard and mouse functioned normally (no lag). Noticed with Battery removed kb & mouse was normal. Finally found disabling ACPI control battery device resolved this issue while allowing laptop to run on either battery or AC.
Its time for a new battery. After a period of time of using a battery, the amount of charge it can hold depletes. Even if you always have it plugged in. Usually, batteries only last 18-24 months which is sad, seeing how much they cost. I'm a computer tech and see this problem everyday first hand. The best thing you can do is buy a battery from eBay and save yourself a bunch of money. Local retail stores charge up to 3 times as much for a battery. Good luck and I hope this helps..... :>)
