There is an issue with one or more hardware components of the laptop, if you hear the hard drive functioning as though it is booting up normally, you can try hooking up an external monitor to it (there should be a vga port on the side or back of the laptop) , you will probably have to hold down a Fn (function) key and look for another key that has a picture of two monitors on it, usually with a line separating them, this will instruct the laptop to use the external display in the event that the screen is the problem with the laptop.
More likely the motherboard or one of its components has failed and will need to be replaced.
Alternatively you can try removing the battery and booting the system with the power cord plugged in.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

I need a motherboard for an acer 8.9" netbook,


http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=acer+aspire+one+netbook+ZG5&_sacat=58058
Also a few people selling fully working ZG5's for in the mid $40 range... might as well try to just buy a newish one on ebay.
There is one listed with a broken screen for $46, even if the screen is busted the motherboard should be intact.
Best of luck!

Laptop wont even boot up


Do you have it on a power strip? if so try resitting it,if the battery is at full charge then you have an internal problem in the laptop itself.Bad power board,etc.Hope this helps.

My acer aspire one zg5 wont turn on


I assume there is something wrong with power supply...Get an electric meter and test the adapter for dc output..I think the bit that connect to the laptop may be worn out and hence losing connection..Try to play with the adapter end when connecting to the laptop and hold on firmly on it and watched if any light comes on.If it stays for more than 2 sec the you know it is faulty..That is an alternate option is you don't have a meter..

Black screen on acer aspire one series zg5


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.
