If you have forgot BIOS password then you have to reset CMOS jumper setting. Please follow the below steps: Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battrey, remove it & then with the help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a screwdriver while turning ON). It will clear the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battrey & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

Would you be able to get the Windows loading bar before it goes to a dark screen if yes we could reinstall the Windows wherein you would lose information on your computer and to do the reinstallation all that you would need to do is start tapping on Alt+F10 as soon as you turn on your computer untill we find Windows loading files on the screen and then you would get the Acer recovery management Windows from where you need to select completely restore system to factory defaults and then keep following the instructions on the screen clicking on a few next ok or yes buttons and it would complete the process in 30-45 minutes time;if you are unable to get the Windows loading bar or the Acer logo then you would haveto conatc technical support and set up a repair for a video card issue.
It seems that windows tries to check your Hard Disk for errors before loading the system files to memory. Do you hear some sounds from your hard disk? If you can successfully get to windows, open my computer => right click on drive C => Click on Properties => Click on TOOLS Tab and click CHECK NOW button.
Check the next 2 options and answer YES when windows ask you to schedule a thorough scan during next boot.
when you boot up next time tap the F8 key. This will bring you to a screen that gives you a bunch of boot up options. Choose the one that says use last known good configuration. this should solve your problem.
The Master Boot Record is corrupted so it cannot boot to operating system. Load your Windows CD and let it run, it will look like it is loading but it will eventually stop and ask if you want to continue or repair. Choose repair. That will fix it and then restart your computer.
if you can find the motherboard battery, remove it and leave it out for around 2 mins, this should reset the CMOS (date,time, settings etc) make sure the laptop battery is out and its not plugged into the mains, the other way is to flash the bios by downloading the latest bios version for you machine providing that it boots to windows, the only other option is to flash via floppy with AC power on!!! NOT RECOMENDED as if it goes wrong your pc will be permanantly dead
