We prove vanishing results for the cohomology groups of the Aomoto complex over an arbitrary coefficient ring for real hyperplane arrangements. The proof uses the minimality of arrangements and descriptions of the Aomoto complex in terms of chambers. Our methods are used to present a new proof for the vanishing theorem of local system cohomology groups, a result first proved by Cohen, Dimca, and Orlik.
