Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
This sounds like the common BIOS flash fix.
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.

Screen not working
are you able to hear the windows log in?
if you do but no image, most likelly your video card is ruined. overheated or dropped maybe? don't worry is bad but not that bad, there is a way to fix that by a professional.
take it to a computer repair shop and have them check the video card ask if they have a rework station or someone who may they have to unsolder about 50 pins at the same time get a new card and solder it again.
sometimes they apply heat to it and it will work again but for just a few days maybe weeks but it goes bad again. so replacement is the best option.
I used to charge about 200 bucks but you may be able to ask for a rebate.
do not take it to a major computer store they would tell you there is no repair so you can go in and get a new computer.
if it works for you leave a comment and rate me
