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

Acer One Laptop; Lights come on- screen stays dark.

\015 Well, I have had this laptop for a few months now, its my best friends- she had let me borrow it. She wants it back, but there is one problem.\015\012\015\012When I go to start it, the green power light comes on, and the fans sound like it is starting up, but the screen does not light up, and after about three seconds it makes the noise as if it has powered down and the fans shut off. I made sure the laptop was charged, it still does the same thing. \015\012I already tried removing the battery and plugging in the charger, and then trying to start up but the same thing happened. Is there anything that I can do to fix this? Any help/advice would work, thank you.\015

Answers :

...sounds like an "internal short", probably related to issues involving the
\015\012screen. Don't attempt to have a 'tech friend' check it, but if your friend had a warranty see if there is a recall notice.
\015\012Related info on that model:
\015\012...our guys sent you this on the POST issues:
\015\012...and 'acertempest' did the right thing and recommended the repair center:
\015\012.. same stuff but similar:
\015\012Ok, ask your friend if this netbook "behaved itself" when she bought it
\015\012OR if there was damage done at some point (i.e. she stomped on it..
\015\012dropped it on her boyfriend..or whatever).
\015\012Some times the factory misses the 'drop and break it' tests during QC (quality control) cycles...if you contact a local dealer, they might let you
\015\012exchange your friends model for a newer one for a small warranty fee.
\015\012Remember these are CHEAP COMPUTERS..not expensive ones (like
\015\012Apple makes..ok?) ..so here is your service center's email contact page:
\015\012...enter your model number here:
\015\012...more stuff:
The Power On Self Test (POST) evidently encountered a problem with one of the main components. Most likely it's the hard drive.
\015\012Was the machine dropped or hit?
