    I have the same problem the start up screen keeps restarting. If you stop the automatic reboot, the following error message appears: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. I do not have the recovery disk (it is still on the hard drive). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Tracey,

I don't have enough information to give you anything but a general solution,so I hope this helps!

On booting up, tap F8 to enter Advanced Settings, and start Windows in Safe Mode, and then do a System Restore back to a time before you started having the problems.

Happy New Year!

It also looks like you may have a motherboard issue, which it's not usually something that can be easily repaired but is still something you mabe be able to do yourself. There are parts available on ebay for alsmost each laptop model. But given that your Laptop doesn't even go to the bios screen and also does not boot makes me think it is not a software issue. I work for a Laptop Repair Shop in NYC and we deal with this issue frequently.

Fujitsu li 2727 black screen on starting, power light on but wont display anything. tried hard reset and taken accesible hardware out and back in but still nothing.

Most laptops have a backlit display panel, usually a black screen means that the rear illumination has either failed or the switch which places the laptop into sleep mode when you close the lid has failed or jammed. Most sleep switches can be seen around the spine or hinges of the display panel and gentle coaxing with a wooden toothpick can usually release them but DO NOT use a probe made of metal as this could cause catastrophic damage if it touches and of the internal circuitry.
If you find that the sleep switch is working, take the laptop to a qualified repairer as laptops are really bad to disassemble and the display is NOT a repairable item. The inverter for the backlights is usually contained within the trim surrounding the display panel but may sometimes be hidden inside the base of the unit. THIS INVERTER OPERATES AT HIGH VOLTAGES. NEVER TOUCH IT OR ATTEMPT ANY KIND OF REPAIR WHILST THE INVERTER IS CONNECTED TO THE POWER SUPPLY - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Start up

Are you pressing and holding ALT + F10 when you see the Acer Splashscreen at the startup?

If you are and its not working then you need the recovery disk(s).
