Find the reset button on the bottom of the laptop and push it with a paper clip that is straightened out.
this should bring back. if this does not work, find your system restore disk to restore and if the restore has repair setup use that so you don't lose your data
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Shut your computer all the way down. As soon as you turn it on, start hitting F8 about 3-4 times, that will take you to an advanced options menu. Select "Last known good configuration" and that should work
To start the computer in safe mode 1. You should print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut your computer down in step 2. 2. Click Start and then click Shut Down. 3. In the drop-down list of the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK. 4. As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when the boot menu appears. 5. Use the arrow keys to highlight the appropriate safe mode option, and then press ENTER. 6. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.
press f8 button many times when you start the computer, it will take you to the options where you select boot by safe mode. In this way you will be inside your windows. Once inside, shut down the computer in the normal way. once shut down now restart the computer in the normal way. If it does not start, you need to change your windows.
Choose within this options with regards to your monitor:
1. You could replace your monitor with a new one.
2. Or you could send someone or send it to a technician to repair your monitor.
Boot Up Problem:
1. Try checking the Power Supply Unit (PSU) if it give out 12Voltz. If not you could replace it with new PSU.
2. Check the motherboard if there are some blown out Capacitors. If there is, send it to a technician to replace it. If none, replace your Processor. That is the defective. That causes the boot up problem.
On boot up screen. Of course it will not show a boot up screen because there is a problem on your monitor. And so, there is also a problem on your motherboard (Processor or Capacitor).
Hope this might help. Thanks.
Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.
Try booting up the computer pressing whatever key the Dell needs to boot into BIOS (F10, Delete key, F1...pay attention to the screen) and leave the computer on for about 15min. See if it cuts off then. If it does its more than likely your power supply. If it doesn't then its not hardware related.
that is your DOS prompt Try typing at the black cursor (chkdsk /r <ENTER> <Y> <ENTER> REstart the PC) If that does not work Shut down PC F8 on boot get back to Advanced boot option SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING Sign in as ADMIN or Owner say yes to get to Desktop Once you get to the Desktop (Windows XP) Start>RUN>CMD (This will be the command prompt window} (chkdsk /r <ENTER> <Y> <ENTER> Restart the PC) (Vista) Start>Start Search>cmd>(above) Right click on CMD>Left click(RUN ADMIN) (This will be the command prompt window)(chkdsk /r <ENTER> <Y> <ENTER> REstart the PC)
From another computer, download Glary Utilities and save the installation on a flash drive. Boot your system into safe mode by pressing F8 before you see the Windows Starting screen (while still seeing black), use arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode". Once it's booted into Safe Mode, install Glary Utilities and do the one button fix. That may solve the problem. I suspect you have a virus. Alternatively, once in Safe Mode, do a system restore (Clicking: Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore), and pick a date to restore to the is before the date the problem appeared. Get a good AV program like AVG (free.grisoft.com)
what has happened is your hard drive as failed and that is why it shut down and then gave the unmountable boot volume.
You could try repairing windows using your XP cd but it's a new hard drive i recon.
