I turned it on and it just flashes the acer symbol for a second then it goes to a black screen with a white cursor that flashes. It wont boot up windows vista or anything. It isn't even a year old yet. No recovery disk or anything came with it. Everything was already on it

Check if your hard rive indicator light is flashing (has disc shape icon or can shape icon next to it). If it is then put in your windows disc and do a startup repair. Make sure it is booting from the disc drive first. if it isnt flashing then you may have a dead hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it back in.
That is typically an internal power supply issue. Power surges (Lightning) cause this type of behavior and a new motherboard is the only remedy. There are companies that specialize in repairing laptop motherboards. For the cost of repair you can probably buy a new one.
Try to boot to F8 at startup if you see and boot menu you can restore the system or use last good known settings but you can only use last good known 1 time the results is what you seem to be talking aboutna cursor will be flashing indicating that the os has been wiped out or the drive is not functioning.if you have restore disk try to reinstall
