Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
If you don't have documents, pictures, etc on the hard drive that you need to backup, try running system recovery by doing the following (not sure if this works on the version with a solid state drive): WARNING: This will format your hard drive and return your netbook to the condition it was in from the manufacturer.
1. Turn on the computer
2. Press and hold Alt + F10
3. Click on Restore System to Factory Default
4. Ensure the netbook is plugged into AC power instead of running off the battery and click OK

Testimonial: "You are fantastic! This worked perfectly. Thank you so much."
Exact same thing happened to me with mine. Next time it's booting see if the hard drive is making a rhythmic clicking sound. If it is, its probably a bad hard drive. Acer replaced mine for free (I had to pay one way shipping). Then it worked great.
The reason I'm on here is because now it is starting to act up again, really slow boot up, choppy sound and video, which is what lead to the blue screen error...I'm worried the hard drive is bad again...
