I recent bough a new screen and installed it but here is the whole story. The screen broke and shattered so I ordered a new screen. in the mean time i plugged it into a regular monitor. when it powered on the monitor made a loud pop and my power light is blinking now. once installed new screen the problem persists and this is what it does. I push the power on button and the fan whirls but the hard drive won't spin. also the screen will not come on even for the Bios. PLEASE help me if you know what this could be.

It looks like your battery is either discharged or has a short circuit.
Plug the power AC cord in the laptop and let recharge the battery at least 3 hours before you try to start it again. If the computer boots up, enter the BIOS and check to see if you have a "battery check" oprion. If you do, start it and let it run until it is done (it may take several hours to complete). It will check the battery charge cycle.
Insert your restore CD if errors are found and not fixed by the checkdisk function listed above. Turn your computer off and then back on. You'll beasked to hit any button to boot from your CD; press any key. You will then beasked if you want to install a fresh version of your OS or "Repair" acurrent copy. Choose the "Repair" option.
You need to find right drivers for your laptop .
search on google as " windows drivers for acer travel mate 5520 " if you do not know how to install drivers let me know .
scan you system with an anit virus as well
The black screen with flashing cursor can be caused by the files needed to boot being located in sectors of the hard drive that can no longer be read.
You can try booting to the XP CD, and go to recovery console and RUN CHKDSK /F See if that fixes the file structure and allows the system to boot. If that fails, you can try a repair installation of Windows. If that fails, the most likely resolution is replacing the HDD and reloading Windows and the drivers.
laptops don't come with disc's these days (cheap scates) you normally have to make the recovery disc's when you first use the laptop,if the laptop is dead on arrival, as yours is, talk to the people you purchased it off, as it will be covered by a warranty,
when you boot up, look on the screen for the keyboard key, you need to push, to go into restoring the laptop to factory settings, sometimes (F11),but i think you should talk to the supplier of the laptop first.
