The most common problem is with the memory card(s). Try to re seat and clean them if necessary with pencil eraser on the metal connector. If you have spare mem card with the same spec, it would be a good idea if you replace it

I cannot start up my acer aspire 584g32bn


Safe Mode and System Restore can fix startup issues in an Acer Aspire One, but if the computer won't even load the boot screen, the problem could be related to the basic input/output system (BIOS).
The Acer Aspire One 110 and 150 are two models that can have BIOS-related problems that prevent the computer from booting.
You can upgrade the BIOS through a USB flash drive to repair this issue.
If you are able boot past the startup screen, but can't sign in to Windows, you can use Windows Advanced Boot Options to bypass startup problems.

Go to the Acer website (see Below).
http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
Click "Support," then select "Download" from the menu on the left.
Select "Netbook" as the product family.
Click "Aspire One" as the product line. Select "AOA110" or "AOA150" as the product model.


Click the "BIOS" tab.
Click the download button and save the file to the desktop.


Go to the desktop when the download completes.
Double-click the file to open it.


Drag-and-drop the folder to the desktop.
Double-click the folder to open its contents in Windows Explorer.


Double-click the "BIOS_Acer_3310_A_AOA110 & AOA150" folder.
Double-click the "Dos_Flash" folder.


Insert a blank USB flash drive into a USB slot.
Drag-and-drop the "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" files to the flash drive.


Right-click the "3310.fd" file. Click "Rename."
Change the file name to "zg5ia32.fd" and press "Enter."


Connect the AC adapter to the power jack.
Hold down "Fn" and "Esc" with one hand, then press the power button with the other.


Release the "Fn" and "Esc" keys when the power indicator light comes on.
Wait at least seven minutes for the system to fix the BIOS and repair the Acer Aspire One startup issues.
The computer will restart automatically when the process is complete.

Other Models

Turn on the computer.
Press "F8" before the Windows logo appears to access the Windows Advanced Boot Options menu.


Scroll to Last-Known Good Configuration.
Press "Enter" to load Windows.
If the OS fails to start up, hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the computer.


Press the power button to turn the Acer Aspire One back on. Press "F8," then select "Safe Mode" from the options.


Log in to Safe Mode. Click "Start," "All Programs," "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Click "Next."


Select the last working restore point from the options. Click "Next."
Click "Finish" to run System Restore and recover the Acer Aspire One to a previous state.

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.

Hi, my acer aspire one though is on, its screen "dead"


Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

At power on, screen begins to cycle through different colors,


Try this fix….all you need is a flash drive, the BIOS files from Acer support Downloads and 10 minutes of your time.

Acer One Black Screen of Death Repair…..

In most cases the black screen of death for the Acer One is due to a bad update or corrupt BIOS. In 90% of the cases, this black screen can be cured by flashing the BIOS of the Acer One.
The first thing you will need besides the netbook is a flash drive, preferably a 1 GB version so you have plenty of room. Make sure it a flash drive and not a reader or mp3 player.
Go to the Acer support site and go to service and support and go to the drivers download section. Navigate to the exact model of your Acer One, it will be labeled on the bottom of the case. It will be something like AOA150 etc….
Once you choose the model, choose BIOS and download the latest that is listed. Save it to a folder on the desktop so you can find it later. Now find the file and unzip it to that folder. When the files are unzipped they will all be listed.
Now go to “My Computer” in the control panel and find the flash drive listed. Right click on the flash drive and scroll down to “Format”. Choose “FAT” as the format….not fat32 and not ntfs. Run the format, hit apply and accept and the flash drive will be formatted to the “FAT” file system, this will allow it to boot your computer and flash the new BIOS.
Now go to the folder that has the unzipped BIOS files. Now find the folder named…. “Dos_Flash…open this folder and you will find the file that has the version number of the BIOS files needed to flash the BIOS. Right click on this file and scroll down to “Rename”, choose rename. You have to change this file name to the following…..zg5ia32.fd
Now, copy this renamed file to the flash drive that you previously formatted and also copy the file, Flashit.exe to the drive as well. This file is in the same folder as the one you previously renamed.
Now make sure the netbook is off and is fully charged. Now connect the flash drive to any of the available USB slots. Now, press the “Fn” key and hold it as well as the “Escape” key and hold it. Hold these two down together and do not let go of them. While you are holding these two keys down, press the power button and hold it down until you see the green power indicator light comes on and starts blinking…once this happens, let go of the other buttons and observe the indicator light on the flash drive. It should also start blinking indicating files being read on the flash drive. Now, just wait up to 1-10 minutes for the BIOS to be written and flashed. If it all goes well…..the system should boot up without incident and without any data loss.

My acer one netbook won't boot


This is a common problem with the Acer Aspire one. Apparently, the BIOS needs to be flashed using a flash disk with the required files.

Unfortunately, the files are not available at any website but you can take the Aspire one to any Acer service center and they should be able to flash the BIOS for you free of cost.
