Try flashing the netbook with a new BIOS.....

\015\012Try this fix….all you need is a flash drive, the BIOS files from Acer support Downloads and 10 minutes of your time.

\015\012
\015\012In most cases the black screen of death for the Acer One is due to a bad update or corrupt BIOS. In 90% of the cases, this black screen can be cured by flashing the BIOS of the Acer One.
\015\012The first thing you will need besides the netbook is a flash drive, preferably a 1 GB version so you have plenty of room. Make sure it a flash drive and not a reader or mp3 player.
\015\012Go to the Acer support site and go to service and support and go to the drivers download section. Navigate to the exact model of your Acer One, it will be labeled on the bottom of the case. It will be something like AOA150 etc….
\015\012Once you choose the model, choose BIOS and download the latest that is listed. Save it to a folder on the desktop so you can find it later. Now find the file and unzip it to that folder. When the files are unzipped they will all be listed.
\015\012Now go to “My Computer” in the control panel and find the flash drive listed. Right click on the flash drive and scroll down to “Format”. Choose “FAT” as the format….not fat32 and not ntfs. Run the format, hit apply and accept and the flash drive will be formatted to the “FAT” file system, this will allow it to boot your computer and flash the new BIOS.
\015\012Now go to the folder that has the unzipped BIOS files. Now find the folder named…. “Dos_Flash…open this folder and you will find the file that has the version number of the BIOS files needed to flash the BIOS. Right click on this file and scroll down to “Rename”, choose rename. You have to change this file name to the following…..zg5ia32.fd
\015\012Now, copy this renamed file to the flash drive that you previously formatted and also copy the file, Flashit.exe to the drive as well. This file is in the same folder as the one you previously renamed.
\015\012Now make sure the netbook is off and is fully charged. Now connect the flash drive to any of the available USB slots. Now, press the “Fn” key and hold it as well as the “Escape” key and hold it. Hold these two down together and do not let go of them. While you are holding these two keys down, press the power button and hold it down until you see the green power indicator light comes on and starts blinking…once this happens, let go of the other buttons and observe the indicator light on the flash drive. It should also start blinking indicating files being read on the flash drive. Now, just wait up to 1-10 minutes for the BIOS to be written and flashed. If it all goes well…..the system should boot up without incident and without any data loss.

I've done this a half dozen times tonight and the usb drive lights up a lot and the hard drive light goes on quite a bit also, but half hour later it's still running.. not sure what to do? I used the newest version of the file from the Acer website and named it JAL90x64.fd which is what the online manual for my model says to do..
any ideas??
