Individual Acer Aspire laptop models differ somewhat, but
the general steps are the same when replacing a dead CMOS battery.Preparation
Read through the owner's manual for your particular Acer
Aspire laptop to determine what kind of CMOS battery you need.

something metal to remove static charge. Removal

Most computers will have a message stating press xx Key to enter setup or etc.
If this problem persists even after setting the correct time in your BIOS, your laptop needs a new CMOS battery. I recommend having a professional do this.
not knowing what operating system your are running i cannot navagate you there so go to control panel power options and hopefully you will see how to tell your computer when to sleep when to turn off hard drive and monitor etc so click on the when to sleep button and extend the time to what you think you may need and you can do the same for the hard drive because i think they are normally set to cut off after half and hour by default
You may have to remove and reset the HDD and Memory on the unit. Next, you will recv. the F-2 to continue or F-12 to enter setup. Enter setup and change date and time. Save and try. You may have a damaged HD or boot partition and reloading the operating system will be necessary. Reseating the HD will assure that you have a good connection and the same with the memory. Also, if the unit has been dropped, you may have a damaged HD and may need to change it.

Hi When you first turn the machine on hit F2, that will take you into the bios menu, i don't know what version your machine is using, but the information is usually on the first page, you should find it easy enough because it will be next to the CD/DVD drive.
OS means operating System and HDD stands for Hard Disk Drive.
When u turn ur system on is it already black or it shows the bootscreen like ACER logo etc. and then goes black.
If thats the case then ur OS has crashed. Try installing new one.
And if its black right from the start then i think it is a hardware failure.
In any case let me know.
