I had the same startup problem. I updated to the latest BIOS - Ver 1.43 from Ver 1.40 and it resoved the problem. For whatever strange reason Acer only offers the BIOS for download from their Europe site. Here is the link:

I have an acer aspire ax1430-uw30p boots up, but screen stays black, cant even see setup menu, can someone help please...


Try resetting the Bios. Remove the ram chips and if you can get access to it, the button battery on the motherboard. Wait a few minutes then put it all back in and boot up. If that won't work, try the steps at the link below, or try them first if you prefer.

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

I have a black screen when i push the power button, it wont turn on but i hear the fan


i have had a problem like this but im not sure if its the same.
I had dropped my laptop and the whole thing just went black. i would press the power button and the power light would come on but the screen would just stay black and the eventually when my laptop heated up the fan would go on but still there would be a black screen. I later realized that my motherboard had been damaged. and this is a very serious problem and new motherboards cost nearly just as much as the laptop itself.

So if you have the same problems as i had then your motherboard has been damaged and you will have to get it replaced

Try to remove the battery, hold on power button for about 50-60seconds, then plug-in the charger and turn the laptop ON, see what happens.

The lights are on screen is black


When you first turn on your computer, do you see anything on the screen? Perhaps, something in the corner of the screen telling you to press F1,F12 or something like that. If so, go in to start-up and see if it will give the option to "start with last known good configuration", if so press the # and enter, See if the computer will boot then, if not do the process over and press "start in safe mode" and if this works you probably have a virus. Please contact me here or e-mail me at cliffjones1059@yahoo.com. I will explain more>

Acer One pc notebook black screen?!


That is a problem of BIOS. U need to reset your BIOS.
Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery
The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.
