I had same problem - it's a known issue, with a solution on one of the acer websites. Their solution worked for me. URL is:

Q: No Display / System will not POST Aspire One AOA.


Create a recovery USB drive to update the Bios on the unit. The specific steps to perform this recovery with the USB drive are:

1. Download & Extract
2. Rename the Bios name from 3309.fd to zg5ia32.fd.
3. Copy zg5ia32.fd and Flashit.exe to USB flash drive.
4. Start the restoration process:

A. Plug the AC Adapter into the unit.
B. Insert the USB flash drive into a USB port.
C. Press and Hold down the Fn and the Esc keys together.
D. Keep these keys held down and press power.
E. When the unit's power light comes on release the Fn and Esc keys.
F. After the keys have been released the power light will start to blink.
G. Let the unit run and after approximately 1-7 minutes, the unit should reboot.
H. Video should now be restored.

If these steps fail to resolve the no post, no video issue please contact Acer Technical Support.
Great, many thanks!!!
I suffered the same problem and any bios upgrade is solving the issue. I tried with v3308 v3309 v3310 (current bios).

The only think I could identify is that I don't have problems when the laptop is hot.

Could be the higher working temperature of Intel Atom N270 processors?

Sorry for not helping with a real solution.
