Is your monitor turned on? If so, then you likely have a dead monitor. Try plugging a different monitor into your computer and see if it works. Then get a new monitor.
Good Luck!

    First take a flashlight and shine it on the sceen. When you do, do you see a picture? It kind of looks like a negative. If so either your CCFL Backlight or your inverter are bad. 


    First step is buy a new inverter. They run about 50 dollars and are a cheap fix. It is located behind the LCD front cover, at the bottom of the LCD. If that does not fix it, you need a new LCD panel as the CCFL replacement is not a task for anyone less than an expert.


    If you do not see a ghosted image with the flashlight then you doto do the following..

    You need to hook an external monitor up to your laptop. Boot it up and switch the display to the monitor. I believe it is FN and F5 on that laptop.


    If you get a picture, you likely need a new LCD screen.


    If that does not give a picture on the external monitor, you need a new motherboard.

    I do not have an acer in front of me, but it will be one of the Function keys at the top plus the FN key.
    The Function key will have a picture of a monitor or two on it.

Acer Aspire 5100 laptop's screen remains black at start-up


This is probably a hardware issue with the monitor. Just to make sure, uninstall, and reinstall the monitor's driver. If that doesn't fix it, it's a hardware issue.

You will have to either take it to a shop, or contact the manufacturer (your computer should be under warranty if you've had it for less than a year).

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
