Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
I have an Acer Aspire one model zg5 (5 months old - rarely run on battery, though )- Power cord was plugged in but a message appearing on screen said "low battery" then screen went black. Now it will not turn on whether plugged in or left to run on battery. What to do??
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.

I think you will need to reflash your BIOS. You can find instructions here but it should work ok.
