You should contact Acer. They know they have a display problen with the Acer Aspire One that can be fixed with a BIOS upgrade. We got our done. They sent us a USB thumb drive with the files and instructions on how to boot the thumb drive. After a couple of minutes the Acer restarted and all is fine.

Here is another thing you can try. Unplug the power cord, and then remove the battery. Press the "Start" button and hold for 5 seconds. Replace the battery back into the computer and plug in the power cord. Start the machine and see if the low battery message still comes up. Sometimes the program that monitors the battery status gets confused. Doing the above should straighten it out. The Acer should start up and the AC power light should be lit. Look down in your task bar for the battery Icon or go to Battery Status in Control Panel and see if it shows that the battery is charging. Even newer batteries can go bad (rare) but if this is the case and a cell has shorted out in the battery, then your only recourse is exchange under warranty.

This is actually a common problem with this model, but don't worry because there is an easy solution! All you need is a USB flashdrive, and another PC with internet access. Go to the acer support website and download the BIOS update for the Acer One ZG5. It will list the instructions for how to copy it to your flashdrive and install it on your Acer One. It only takes about 5 or 10 minutes and you will be up in running again!! Hope this helps you out.....
