Question about Acer Ferrari 1100 Notebook
Black screen but used F8 and it made noises and the HD light flashed and put CD in which was spinning?STILL BLACK SCREEN?
If your external monitor isn't working, it may be your graphics. You could open the case and search for loose connections or components. It's difficult to say without opening the laptop. Your specs say you have integrated graphics. What kind of noises? Is it coming from the HDD? the DVD rom?

If you cannot "press DELETE to enter setup", then it's the motherboard, or the battery, or the AC power-supply that has the problem.
Since it's likely that at least one of the battery and the power-supply are working, it's probably the motherboard (or the CPU on the motherboard) that is failing.
Take the computer to a qualified technician.
Replacing the CPU is possible, and is not very expensive.
Replacing the motherboard is possible, but is very expensive
(a few hundred dollars for a replacement motherboard, plus $100 for the technician's time to disassemble/replace/reassemble).
The only "good" news is that your files on your disk-drive probably are intact, and can be read and transferred to a new computer.
Of course, you can try to sell the "dead" computer on eBay, so that somebody else can "frankenstein" your computer with their computer, to combine two dead computers into one working one.

I have encountered this situation before myself and it was due to the frequency range and resolution that the external VGA monitor can handle. First, try dumping down your screen resolution to an 800x600 on the laptop itself. Save the setting and reboot to make sure it stays. Next connect the external monitor and reboot the system with it plugged in (power and data). See if the monitor will display anything. Note: You may also have to look at the frequency setting of your video card in the laptop in order to match it with your external monitor.
I can't imagine that a bad CMOS battery would be the issue. Does the screen on your laptop work without the external monitor plugged in?

Did you change the HDD ?
Did you change the MOBO?
Please try to change the battery or charge the battery again or can check by your nearest technician.
If there is any courser blinking any on the screen think your LCD is ok.
The HDD is defected.
If there is no courser ,The hdd is spinning thing LCD could be damaged,
