Monitor went out within 2 weeks,
This review is from: Acer Aspire One AOD255E-13639 10.1-Inch Netbook (1.66 GHz Intel Atom N455 Processor, 1GB DDR3, 250GB HDD, 3-cell Lithium ion battery, Windows 7 Starter) Diamond Black (Personal Computers)
I really liked this notebook at first. it was very uncomplicated, and I loved that it easily connected to my home wireless network, and I was sailing away fairly quickly.
I really dislike the office 10 starter, but I was planning to install my office 2003 when my external cd drive arrives.
After a couple week's use, I had put it in sleep mode, to return to my project later, but when I tried to "wake it up", nothing happened. After using the power button, I had to use the power button to shut it down manually, and then powered it back up, but nothing came on the monitor. I manually turned it off and on a few times, waiting until it had cooled enough, but though I could hear the motor going when I turned it on, the display was blank; I also didn't hear any of the usual sounds you might hear when booting up. So, I can't be sure what all went wrong, but I wasn't even able to retrieve any of the data I had put on it, nor could I uninstall anything or otherwise remove account information.
Fortunately I had bought it at costco, so I just returned it.

but how can you get into the setup screen if you can't see anything on the monitor? would you hook up an external monitor?
