On most Acer laptops, you can adjust the screen brightness this way:
Press and hold the blue 'fn' key. Look at the arrow keys. The left/right arrows should have a picture off the sun on them. Tap these keys while holding the fn key to adjust screen brightness. Please let me know if this does not work.
Step 1: Shut down your PC completely. Step 2: Turn on the Power button. Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.) Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration". Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER. Step 6: your PC will boot to the windows.
Hey, I've just been having this problem. Try pressing CTRL + SHIFT + FN all at the same time. I found out that I had to press them once to turn on the green keys, and then press them twice more to turn it off. I hope that works for you.
After switching off the aa1, when trying to turn it on again, it just shows blinking leds and the fan is turning. But the screen remains black. If your aa1 does like this probably its BIOS has been damaged...
Luckily the Acer Aspire One has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore.
Please note that the process I'm about to describe is only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.
1) Format a USB memory key with the FAT mode. 2) Download the latest version of the BIOS from Acer support website: 3) Extract the files from the zip and put both the FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the memory key. 4) Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD and then remove the disk. 5) Turn the AA1 off, insert the battery and connect the AC adapter. 6) Insert the USB Memory Key into one of the USB port of the Aspire One. 7) Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. 8) Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. 9) Press the power button once. The AA1 will start the BIOS flash, do not interrupt for any reason. After some minutes the power button will stop blinking, and then the AA1 will reboot. Wait till the AA1 has completed all this operations.
If everything has gone right, the BIOS is flashed and all settings are reset to default.
Look onto your keyboard. There is a key that looks like 2 oval one shaded the other clear. Press FN and that key with the symbol on it. It will turn off your LCD and put it into the other. Then hit it again, both screens will have power, but slightly dim, press it once more to turn it off.
well I have a similar kinda problem and I have found a teemporary solution to it.press clt+alt+del goto task manager pres file and click new task type explorer.exe..it should work but u have to do it evrytime u start ur laptop!!!

When you first power your computer on, you'll want to press F2 to get into the bios. If you're lucky, your bios will have the option to turn off the Automatic Restart on System Failure. It may be worded differently, but if you can turn that off, then you'll be able to see what your blue screen says.
Also, if you have your Windows XP cd (if that is your operating system), you'll want to boot up with the cd in your drive, to get to the XP Recovery Console. Run the command: chkdsk /r
(It takes about 30+mins to finish)
It will scan and repair any errors it may find on your hard drive.
