Can you hook it to an external monitor if so then boot in with the external monitor ans see if the screen apears with operating system then look for the monitor icon on the laptop if found then press the fn+the monitor key together and see if this swaps back to laptop lcd but if you have not got the option of uotput to a second monitor then get it repaired

Black screen: acer aspire one laptop starts with error to run with in safe mode, safe with network, or safe with command or to run normally...once i choose an option and press enter, it appears to load...


Looks like your OS on the hard drive has crashed. Therefore the bios has no bootable file to start your session. You can pull the hard drive out dongle it off another pc pull ur pictures, music, and data files off. Then reload the operating system on fresh. If you can not load a fresh copy because you get stop errors then your hard drive is bad you would need replace it.

Need help for Acer Aspire ONE MODEL # ZG5 screen does not work?My Acer Aspire ONE MODEL # ZG5 notebook is show that the power is on, but the screen is black. I can hear the computer running, but there is...


If you are sure the computer is running then connect an external monitor to the laptop. You will have to select the external using your Function keys FN + F7 or F8. If you can now see your machine on the external monitor then you know it's the screen portion of your laptop that is faulty. If this does not work then the sounds you are hereing are probably just the fan and the hard drive spinning. These are not an indication that the computer is working. All in all, I would say that the laptop needs to see a pro.

My Acer Aspire one won't turn on.


I also have this problem with my Acer netbook.  I have only had it for 4 months and am in Turkey on an extended break at the moment.  I have taken the netbook to a dealer here and have been told the problem is the motherboard, verified by Acer themselves.  I am not happy with this as the netbook was not cheap and there appears to be a few Acer models with the same problem

Blank Screen Acer Aspire 5920


im afraid that your screen is broken, but try to move the screen foward and backward littlebit, my friend also have the same problems and only by contact local support using his warranty the problems fix, you may open your laptop to see if something wrong with the wire but i think its not practically good.

Blank screen appears on the startup with only cursor on it


The Acer Recovery CDs do not set the Boot flag on the hard drive. I had to manually set the boot flag to on using GPARTED Live. After restarting using the GPARTED CD, you can manage the flags under the partition drop down and click on the Boot flag. After exiting GPARTED, I rebooted the laptop and no more black screen....fixed!!
I hope this helps others.
