That means it's not powering up... Take out the battery...hold power button for about 60secs and start the laptop with the adapter...if laptop powers up this will clear one thing...it's the battery if not then might be your adapter...check the voltage...try plugging in another adapter. Check the battery if it's working with any other laptop. Try lightening the laptop remove any external attachments[printers,scanners,pen drives etc.] All this you can try on your own and other than this leads to internal problems.Call any authorized personal from the company.

ASPIRE ONE BIOS FLASH RECOVERY

First format an USB stick with FAT.

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.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

You can find the BIOS download here:
