Re: Acer Aspire (1414) screen stays black when started
It's look like your laptop have a problem called "NO POST".
motherboard, cpu or memory can cause this problem.
To diagnose it, reseat your memory first and after that turn it on.
if it still no post.
use only 1 memory and turn it on, if still same,
Try to move your memory and seated to different slot and turn it on. if it still same, it's mean your motherboard/cpu is bad.

start up the computer and while its running, hold a flash light to the screen. If you can see any graphics on the screen, your lcd converter burned out. If you can seen nothing, its possible that the back light lamp burned out and the best option would be to replace the screen altogether
WinZip, WinRAR, or some other program that can extract zip files.
A quick visit towww.acer.com
Your Acer Aspire One, that will power up/turn on, but the screen
does not come on.
And here’s what you do:
Go to www.acer.com and go through the DRIVER support pages until you
get the Aspire One driver page for your relevant Aspire One model
Click on the tab on the download area that reads ‘BIOS’ even if it
looks like you can’t click on it (their site design grays it out but
it’s there) and download the BIOS file numbered 3310 (it might have
changed version recently but do it) and don’t worry, you can trust this
file, as it’s from Acer directly.
Extract the zip once downloaded and find in the DOS folder the files
‘flashit.exe’ and 3310.fd
When you’s ve found them, rename 3310.fd to ZG5IA32.fd and put this
renamed file and ‘flashit.exe’ onto the USB memory stick
Put the USB in the Aspire One and hold the keys ‘FN’ (function) and
‘Esc’ (escape) and keep them held when you turn the laptop on
Watch the power button and when it starts flashing, press it once
(DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE)
You should notice the USB (if it has a light) blinking as well… The
netbook has started ‘flashing’ the BIOS and after about 7 minutes, the
netbook should shutdown and reboot itself and VOILA! The screen should
turn on just fine.
It took my three times but this IS the proper solution! I am now very
happy with my Aspire One that still works!
Try using a different monitor if you have one available, or disconnect the monitor from the computer and then turn it on. If you see a logo or color bar or message saying no signal, then your monitor is OK and you should take a look at your video card.
If you suspect your video card, there is very little you can do with a no video situation. but one thing you can do is to remove the video card completely and wait for a few minutes. then put it back in and try to start your computer. This is just in case you have corrupted video memory keeping it from functioning. otherwise, replace the card.
In the case that your video is built into you computer, buy a new card and disable the onboard video in the BIOS. That will take some browsing in the BIOS setup, but it shold be fairly easy to find. once it is disabled, the new card will be able to function and you should be ok from there. Otherwise, it's motherboard replacement time.
