    Chances are you fried something by using a charger that is set at a different power lvl. Did you look at the specs for both charging cables and make sure they were the same. Also, just because the plug in for the computers was the same size it dose not mean that the positive and negative pols of the adapter were the same.

Take a bright light and shine it on the screen when it is on. Can you barely see any display, but really dark? If so, the lamp or the lamp inverter has failed (some laptops use LEDs instead of CCFL lamps and has no inverter either).

Just hooking up to another display doesn't necessary tell you anything if it doesn't show anything. As sometimes you have to change a settings in the BIOS, use the Fn key plus another key that looks like a monitor, or change it through a display menu on the screen.

Aspire one no statring at all


if new, return it to place of purchase for a replacement. if used, the motherboard or internal problems may be the problem such as a bad motherboard, bad internal connection etc.
it may also be that the battery isn't being charged due to a bad adapter or battery. the battery may not be able to take a charge, or the charger may not actually be charging. if you have a spare charger, try it, and the same for the battery.
a green light on the charger doesn't mean it's actually doing anything. nor does it really indicate the battery is good.

I Have an Acer Aspire laptop and evertime you plug in the charger it will show no signs it's connected and the laptop is now out of battery so it will not turn on at all. Even when my charger is plugged...


Please Please Please change your charger right away .. I Got 2 Acer laptop last week and both had same probelm ..if there would be any fluctuations in voltage from your adaptor it will fry up your laptop and you will be in big trouble. Please dont do any experiments on your adapter and change it right away. I Got one laptop last week and customer tried so many angles like you did and fried up his laptop's motheboard already.
Hope you will listen to my suggestion. new charger is not very expensive.
Good Luck !!

The battery may need to be replaced, as well as the mouse and keyboard. If you like, I could take a look at the laptop for you.
