More about black screen boot
  1. Once it sounds like it's finished booting (presumably you can hear the Windows start up jingle) shine a torch at the screen and see if it's just the illumination which has failed.

    Connect laptop to an external monitor and see if that looks normal.
  2. I tried to connect laptop to my pc yesterday nothing happened there either !
  3. Thanks for the reply, no start up jingle! tried shining the torch at screen and still nothing :(
  4. Do you mean connected to desktop's monitor ? Most laptops have a VGA outlet.
  5. yes i tried to connect it to a desktop monitor!
  6. HI, i have tryed the vga outlet on my desktop and it still does the same just get the black screen again....
  7. Sounds like a repair job -- even if it's out of warranty take it back to the dealer -- these things should work reliably for a lot longer than the warranty lasts. If the dealer sells a lot of Acer laptops he will probably have encountered the problem before.
  8. OK MANY THANKS, FOR YOUR ADVICE....JUST ONE THING WOULD A RECOVERY DISC MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE? !
  9. Worth a try, but if you can't even see anything in Safe Mode ??? See if you can get as far as the BIOS screen to change the boot order so it can boot from the CD. See the manual for how to enter BIOS.
  10. OK MANY THANKS AGAIN :)
  11. anything appear BEFORE windows boots up? if the screen works (like the brand appears on the screen) then the light works.
  12. u need to update your BIOS...u can do it in Acer website....they have the instructions...
  13. THIS WORKED FOR ME. At startup I was seeing the startup screen, then black screen.
    REMOVE battery, unplug laptop. Hold the start button for AT LEAST 60 solid seconds. Then replace battery and plug in. Try restarting. Saved me having to by a new laptp. Good luck!! KIM
