When you turn on the pc keep pressing F8 until it boots into safe mode. when in safe mode look in the list for 'Last Known Good Configuration' and select the line with the up/down arrows on keyboard and press enter. the pc should then reboot back into windows, if not and you still get the flashing cursor, then there is a boot.ini file fault where the sysstem cannot find the c:\ volume to start windows, and you will need to borrow a copy of windows to do a system repair.

Comp won't turn on all of a sudden. tried new ac

If you get no LEDs and the fan fails to run up then this is a motherboard fault and definately not a processor fault. You will need a replacement board.

Black screen with blinking curser in left top corner

Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.

No audio

(Assuming that you have checked your volume settings and it is still not working)

Try the link above for the soundcard driver if using XP it is the blue button that says download on the top left hand side of the screen, not the orange button. If using Vista let me know and I will try to find another driver for you

Acer laptop has black screen but power light is on

Does it appear to be doing anything. Is there a flashing "_" at the top left of your screen. If not try hooking a monitor up externally and turning the laptop on.
