\015 I have an Aspire One, less than a year old. The screen stays black when I cut it on. It's plugged in and power is on.\015
Before you panic and send it in for service, there is a function key, i believe it is FN + F5 that will turn the screen off for use with an external monitor. Make sure that you have not accidently pressed this combination that would make the screen blank. Pressing the combination again would return it to its normal state. I hope this helps.
Return it to Acer for a warranty repair / replacement
