    nothing appear during startup, blank, but there a sound coming from below, the sound maybe coming from the fan since it doesn't have CD drive

    Do you see anything happen on the screen during startup? Bios flash, windows logo, cursor or anything? Any sounds? Fan, hard drive, CD drive,etc.

Good! At last we know that power is getting to the machine. You could still have an internal power problem, motherboard problem,Display problem or something else could be hanging thing up.
First I would power it down, remove the battery, press and hold the power on button for 30-45 seconds. Then do not put the battery back in yet. Just connect the power cord and try to bring it back up.
One thing that I would suggest is to try an external monitor if possible to see if you get anything on it.
Another thing to try is to remove and reinsert the memory module(s), remove the HD, any PCMCIA cards, flash drive, etc. See if doing this gets anything on the display.
After you do these things, get back to me and we'll go from there.
Have a good one!

I have an Acer Aspire 6930 it loads with a black screen and cursor only. Cannot use CTL + ALT +DEL to get to task manager, I can use F* to get to boot options but can not get in to safe mode or any other...


Check your BIOS and ensure your installed amount of RAM is correct. If not you have a bad stick. If it is correct, and you have more than a single stick of memory installed, try removing one and restarting, then the other. If there is a bad stick and it's not obvious this will help you find it. Also check your processor status while you're in the BIOS.

My Acer cannot log in the normal screen but the safe mode


Do you see the white cursor on the black background? If so, press CONTROL+ALT+DELETE keys. If the Task Manager window appears. You can start the PC from the CD/DVD and choose Startup Repair from the choices given.

Blank screen appears on the startup with only cursor on it


The Acer Recovery CDs do not set the Boot flag on the hard drive. I had to manually set the boot flag to on using GPARTED Live. After restarting using the GPARTED CD, you can manage the flags under the partition drop down and click on the Boot flag. After exiting GPARTED, I rebooted the laptop and no more black screen....fixed!!
I hope this helps others.

Cursor disabled


Try going to control panel, then personalization, then mouse pointers. Under mouse properties, go to pointers and try to use windows black (system scheme). See if changing your mouse poiners makes it appear.
