Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
My first thought is the Hard Drive has a problem. I would pull the Hard Drive out and start the computer a few times without it. If it boots and POSTS to where you can see the white text on a black background and consistently gets to the point to where it says there is no Hard Drive present....that would point even more to a bad or corrupted hard drive.
If you have data that is not backed up, I would not attempt any further repair without pulling the info off. If you dont know how, it may be best to go to a local repair shop.
I would hook the Hard Drive up to another computer as a Slave. You can buy laptop IDE HD to USB adapters online. If it is SATA, you can just hook it up to most Desktop computers. Copy any data you need and when you are done, run a Disk Check on the HD while it is still hooked up as a slave.
If the HD is not the problem, my next thought would be the Memory. You probably have 2 sticks of RAM installed. The easiest way to test is to just take one stick out and see if it works....then repeat with the other stick.
