Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

My Acer Aspire One shows black screen only.

\015 I have had it for just under a year. It runs on Linux. Today when I started it, an icon appeared telling me that I needed to install updates. I downloaded and installed them and when I rebooted all I got was the initial Acer logo screen and it never loaded Linux. After the initial logo screen it goes to a cursor in the top left hand corner and then the cursor moves to the middle. If I push a button the cursor disappears and when I push any button again, it reappears. It seems that others on here are having similar problems but they all have Windows. I have Linux. Please help!\015

Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to\015\012flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant\015\012for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012Follow every step carefully!
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012First format an USB stick with FAT.
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012Download 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.
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected.\015\012Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the\015\012AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be\015\012blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the\015\012BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while\015\012the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly\015\012after. Wait patiently.
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it\015\012doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to\015\012be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Download WIN98BOOT.ZIP and HPUSBFORMATTER from the internet normal bootable like a diskette won't work with a usb stick
\015\012I had mine 2 months it's a common problem with the notebook.
\015\012The onely thing that you have to do is download these programs with someone with a internet connection.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck
