Question about Computers & Internet
Firstly, don't do anything drastic that would void the warranty since it is only 2 months old.
One of the possibilities is that it has been switched to external monitor only. <Fn> + <F5> is a display toggle which switches the display output between the built-in screen, an external monitor (if connected) and both. Try this first.
You can get a full user manual here, if you haven't got one with the machine.

Try to see if it will boot in safe mode, by pressing F8 while the laptop boots up. If it allows you to boot in safe mode, try to do a system restore when you know that laptop was working with no problems. You can do this by clicking on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date and time when you know that the laptop was working with no problems. If this does not work or you cannot boot in safe mode (be aware that everything will look big in safe mode and when the computer reboots if asked how you want to start windows, choose start windows normally), try doing a recovery. This will restore your computer to the factory default settings when you purchased it. You can do this by booting the computer, when the acer screen appears hold down the ALT key and continuously press F10, this will open the recovery manager and you can restore it from there.
I hope this helps

When you first turn the machine on hit F2, that will take you into the bios menu, i don't know what version your machine is using, but the information is usually on the first page, you should find it easy enough because it will be next to the CD/DVD drive.

I have been fixing computers that has long beeps and short ones. It is usually attributed to memory problem connection. Open the memory compartment at the back of the PC then detach the memory card. Clean with cloth softly enough not to destroy the circuit board or a pencil eraser to clean-up dust that caused the connection blockade. Reconnect after cleaning.

1)a) open it/them, rub itz teeth gently with a eraser, to remove any
oxide and or carbon formed..resit them again into the slot(s)..
b) replace the ram with a standby n see..
the above often take place with some error message(s)/blue screen..
but if there's no such displaying, esp if hangs/stops/power off during installation..
[plz give priority to step1(b), it may b the sole cause]..
