Can you please help me?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try:

  • "Press F2 to Enter System Configuration Utility";
  • determine if the hard disk could be detected by the CMOS/BIOS;
  • if yes, possibly corrupt partition would need re-partition/re-format and re-installation of Vista;
  • if no, possible faulty hard drive and would require replacement.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

Notebook wont boot up


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.

Acer 5315 goes to black screen with cursor


If it's only 5 months old, then it's still under warranty. Right now, I'd advise taking it back to have it fixed instead of taking it apart to replace hardware and possibly voiding a warranty.
