    OK well let me clarify I needed my laptop restored. And it is restore but after the acer logo pops up it goes to a black screen and does nothing. I can only use the f2 feature.

    the person who restored my laptop told me when the laptop is turned on it will start up and an EMS window should pop up. But it doesnt the screen stays black once after the acer logo appears. I can only use f2 to access the setup of the laptop.

Check your cd/dvd rom drive for a disk. Remove any USB devices, and reboot.

    sounds like your computer cannot find the operating system. And it sounds like it cannot find the operating system because there is not one on the hard drive, or the hard drive has experienced a failure.



    can you try to boot to an operating system disk?



    good luck

    Operating systems usually come preloaded on computers for end users. However, it sounds like yours did not. In order to get an operating system on the computer, you would first need to start with an operating system disk. (this is usually a cd, but later systems come on DVD.)



    If you do not have such a disk, there is very little that can be done to repair it from here.



    You can look in the settings to confirm you have a hard drive installed; but that merely assures that you have a place for an operating system, it does not ensure that you have one.



    Without a disk, this will be a very difficult fix indeed.



    Good luck

My Acer Aspire V5-571 does not load up it shows acer screen when turning on the laptop then loading floating ball comes on screen for a few seconds then black screen ? can any one please help ?


Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

Acer aspire one second display monitor blue


Look onto your keyboard. There is a key that looks like 2 oval one shaded the other clear. Press FN and that key with the symbol on it. It will turn off your LCD and put it into the other. Then hit it again, both screens will have power, but slightly dim, press it once more to turn it off.
Good Luck

Wont boot up, stays on black screen with flashing "_" sign


The OS probably has a corrupt system file that is causing it not to turn on properly. If you can get into safe mode, back up all of the files that you need either online or via a flash disk or blank CD/DVD. Make a list of the software you have that is downloadable from the internet, etc. as well. Once you are sure you have enerything, either burn recovery disks or use the recovery disks provided with your computer and wipe the hard-drive. This will make your computer like it was the day you opened it. After this is completed, restore your old files and you should be good to go!
