Answers :

If your Aspire One will not start IT IS NOT DEAD, hopefully! It has a problem booting.
\012
\012 Here is the procedure posted some time ago by a guy call Macles. His blog page seems to have 'disappeared'. I have revived my AOA150/ZG5 a number of times using this procedure.
\012
\012 Although the Aspire One is a bit old now I am posting this here in the hope someone with this problem will find it and fix their Aspire One. You do need to read the instructions carefully.

\012 Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery
\012
\012 The Acer Aspire One has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, which can boot into a minimal BIOS environment via a special boot block to re-flash the BIOS, even if the system does not pass POST and does otherwise not boot anymore. This procedure is also known as Crisis Disk.
\012
\012 First format an USB flash drive with FAT. It does not need to be bootable.
\012
\012 Download the latest BIOS, and extract all files. Put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file with FD suffix in the root directory of the flash drive. The files must not be in a folder. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD before proceeding. It only works with this exact filename.
\012
\012 Turn the AA1 off, and verify both battery and AC adapter are plugged in.
\012
\012 Press Fn and Esc simultaneously, keep them pressed and press the power button. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds. The power button starts blinking at this point. Press it once. The AA1 will now access the files on the flash drive and initiate flashing the BIOS. After a while the power button stops blinking, and the AA1 reboots by itself. Wait patiently.
\012
\012 If it doesn't reboot, but keeps blinking, wait at least a few minutes before turning it off, and try again.
\012
\012 The bios is available here :-
