    Thanks for the suggestion RobertFonner. I have tried altering the settings in power options but no matter what plan i choose the problem remains. The backlight also turns off even when the laptop is plugged in. Do you think it is more likely to be a hardware problem, rather than an issue of power settings? When i press fn + increase brightness the light comes on and appears to work just fine, it just wont stay on...could the problem be with the battery?

You might want to give this a try. Start Menu - Choose Control Panel. Then choose Power Options. You should have several options depending on performance or saving power. Choose Change Plan Settings, and adjust the display brightness to suit your needs.

Hope this helps.

    I just checked the entire user manual, along with checking Acer's website and could find no other way to resolve this issue. It does appear to be a hardware problem. I would take it back to the store you bought it from and get a replacement.

Connect it to an external monitor. If there is a display there, your lcd needs replacement.

It is not charging


I recently had an Acer Aspire One that (after fully discharging) would no longer hold a charge. It worked fine when plugged in, but would turn off right after discharging. This is due to a BIOS error, and this article will show you how to update the BIOS to the official Acer revision 3309.

This article is meant for the AOA110 and AOA150 models ONLY, ingluding the ZG series of AOA110 and AOA150 netbooks.

1. On a separate computer, click here: http://gd.panam.acer.com/

2. Click Netbook -> Acer Aspire One -> AOA150 -> and then below, choose the "BIOS" tab.

3. Click the orange "Down" arrow to download the BIOS.

4. Open the .zip file and extract the two files: "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" onto your thumb drive. Rename "3310.fd" to "zg5ia32.fd"

5.Insert the thumb drive into your powered off Netbook.

6.Press and hold down the "Fn" and "Esc" keys and turn on the Netbook while still holding these keys for about 30 seconds, then let go.

7. Your Netbook should stay black for anywhere from 2-4 minutes or so. Once it restarts, safely remove your thumb drive, and charge it for a while. It should successfully hold a charge from now on.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

I just went though airport security, but now my screen is too dark to work with. I have tried taking out the batterie, and I have restarted my computer a few times. It was working fine this morning.


Airport security probably turned off your screen's backlight. On my Acer Aspire One Netbook it is turned on/off by pressing Fn key and while holding it, pressing F6.

Replaced the broken screen in my Acer Aspire One D150 (10 inch). It seems to work fine, except when the computer is powered off. The screen remains ON and completely white when the computer is turned off....


Sounds like your "Backlight" is not powering off.
Are you sure it is an exact replacement?
Check ALL your connections again, perhaps ya have a bad one...?
Have you got the latest drivers?

Backlight wont stay on


The inverter board which provides the backlight power isn't working properly. This is a pretty common problem with LCD screens. The inverter is in the display, mounted under the display panel. It's a fairly simple job to replace the inverter. You have to remove the screws holding the front of the display to the back and separate the pieces. The inverter is held in place by a couple of screws and has a couple of cables connecting it to the main board and display panel. Unplug those, remove the inverter, mount the replacement and plug the cables back in. Then reassemble the display. A search on Google for "acer 5315 inverter" turned up several sources for the replacement part. Here is one. I don't know anything about this seller; I just picked it as an example.

Your screen sounds fine, most likely just your backlight going out, either that or you could have hit the key for using an external monitor (function f6 is the LCD/external monitor switch for my computer). I'd look into the function f6 and play around with that, if not you can just buy a new backlight from ebay or an internet supplier.
