SOURCE: Acer Aspire 3100 boot up problem

unless it is something more serious, first keep pressing F8 when you turn on the notebook and it should enter safe mode. When in safe mode select the operating system that is highlighted and then a screen will appear with options, one being 'Last Known good Configuration', highlight this and press enter. The system will reboot and start again in windows as normal hopefully. If you are not able to get a screen showing in safe mode there is something more serious wrong and it could be hard drive fault or motherboard, but if you can see the disc drive light flickering the system is loading and you may have a graphical fault.

Try taking all of your ram chips out and re-seeting them. I upgraded to 4 gigabytes in my 5100 and it wouldn't boot, just a black screen with some cdrom and hd activity. Or try running with just one ram chip and then going into the bios and setting everything to default. this made my system bootable again.

SOURCE: My Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop wont detect the hard drive

If it works on another computer then either the ide cable in the acer is bad/loose at either end or the ide controller on the motherboard is bad. I would try a known good ide cable first as if this is the problem it is fixable alot cheaper than a motherboard. Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5252, no video on boot

It sure sounds like you fried the GPU and possibly the CPU because of the fan failing. I had a GPU fail in an old Dell laptop which i could have had replaced, but instead it gave me a reason to sell it off for parts and buy a newer replacement. In your case (as the laptop isnt too old) i would search the internet for laptop repair shops that are close to your home and get them to checkout the laptop. I believe the GPU is fried for sure, but you have to get a professional to test the CPU. Both these components are replaceable for a pretty penny. You can ask that they call you with a quote as to how much the damage is going to cost before going ahead with the repair. You will be charged a service fee though even if you decide not to go ahead with the reapir after they have quoted you on the job.

I have an Acer Aspire 5552 series laptop model no: pew76. In the weekend the computer froze. My son tried to reboot and we are getting a mesasage: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting...

You are receiving a PXE message because the laptop's hard drive has likely failed. The PXE message is indicating the laptop is attempting to boot from the network, which is not something the vast majority of laptops should be doing.
The hard drive could certainly be replaced, but without a competent technician or data recovery service, any data on the existing hard drive is quite likely lost.
