"Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.
"

The Bios can be found from the Acer site. Source(s): http://macles.blogspot.com/2008/08/acer-aspire-one-bios-recovery.html

When you bootup and the power LED is on and the hard disk is spinning and the hard disk LED is flashing, then the hard disk is most likely OK.
Check the BIOS setting to see if the hard disk is detected.
Reseat the RAM moduled and the hard disk and see if this solves your problem.
Do you see any error messages on the screen?
If so please give me the details and I can advise what actions to take next.

Massive hardware failure on the motherboard - the netbook will have to be opened and its components tested by a repair shop. Take it to one.

My laptop wont start at all


By saying "won't start at all" indicates no lights, black screen, nothing. This would indicate a power issue but even if it was a dead battery or similar you should still get a brief moment of power. For anyone to be of any assistance you will have to be much more descriptive. What do you see on the screen, are their lights coming on, etc?

My laptop won't charge. I have an acer aspire 5315 that won't charge, I had problems with the charging adapter before so I thought that was the problem and replaced it, the replacement worked for...


For a test -Remove the battery from the laptop. (leave it out) -Plug in the adapter and turn the laptop on. -Gently wiggle the adapter plugged in

If the computer powers off the solder and/or pins have broken loose from the DC jack. This is very common. Average repair bill is around $150, if your in the Denver Colorado Area I can do the repair for about $50
If it won't turn on while you wiggle the adapter and hit the power button then the adapter is bad again sadly

My acer wont charge and my screen is blank , what can i do


When you connect the power cable does the power light comes on and also when you press the power button does the fan turn on or is there any other indication that the laptop is starting?
One thing to try is to unplug the laptop from the power and remove battery for few hours then try again.

When I turn my Acer on, the light comes on but the monitor stays black. This happens even if I have it plugged in to the ac adaptor. Is the monitor broken? It has been plugged in for charging for some...


The problem here is the Acer Aspire One suffers from the black screen of Death, it's a BIOS error I have three Acer Aspire One's and I have had this problem and fixed it.

Here’s what you need:
  1. USB Memory stick (just need one as low capacity as 128mb)
  2. Another PC with a net connection
  3. WinZip, WinRAR, or some other program that can extract zip files.
  4. A quick visit to www.acer.com
  5. Your Acer Aspire One, that will power up/turn on, but the screen does not come on/stays black.
And here’s what you do:
  1. Go to www.acer.com and go through the DRIVER support pages until you get the Aspire One driver page for your relevant Aspire One model (110 or 150 or 751)
  2. Click on the tab on the download area that reads ‘BIOS’ even if it looks like you can’t click on it (their site design grays it out but it’s there) and download the BIOS file numbered 3310 (it might have changed version recently but do it) and don’t worry, you can trust this file, as it’s from Acer directly.
  3. Extract the zip once downloaded and find in the DOS folder the files ‘flashit.exe’ and 3310.fd
  4. When you’ve found them, rename 3310.fd to ZG5IA32.fd and put this renamed file and ‘flashit.exe’ onto the USB memory stick
  5. Put the USB in the Aspire One and hold the keys ‘FN’ (function) and ‘Esc’ (escape) and keep them held when you turn the laptop on
  6. Watch the power button and when it starts flashing, press it once (DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE)
  7. You should notice the USB (if it has a light) blinking as well…
  8. The netbook has started ‘flashing’ the BIOS and after about 7 minutes, the netbook should shutdown and reboot itself and VOILA! The screen should turn on just fine.
This is tried and tested. It took me three times because I messed up step 6 a couple of times but my netbook worked after the third attempt.
