Granddaughter has an acer aspire one netbook. When she turns it on all it does is a blank screen with a flashing line in upper left corner. How can it be fixed?

Welcome to TSG.

The last laptop I encountered with that problem had a damaged MBR (Master Boot Record). I had to boot the computer using a Windows XP CD, in the installation menu, I choose R for repair console, then in the console I ran the "FixMBR" command.

Because this is a netbook (no CD/DVD drive), you would need a USB DVD drive, and a XP CD (presuming that you are using XP on the computer). Otherwise there are many online walkthroughs on creating a USB Bootable drive for loading the repair console (they are of varying degrees of difficulties, so I won't post them, but you can find them by doing a google search for "windows repair console USB").

Turn it off. Unplug it. Take the battery out. Wait 10 minutes. Put the battery back in. Plug it in. Turn it on.
