When you bootup and the power LED is on and the hard disk is spinning and the hard disk LED is flashing, then the hard disk is most likely OK.
Check the BIOS setting to see if the hard disk is detected.
Reseat the RAM moduled and the hard disk and see if this solves your problem.
Do you see any error messages on the screen?
If so please give me the details and I can advise what actions to take next.

ACER 5600 NOT BOOT AND CD DRIVE WILL NOT OPEN


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

I think the hard drive has no operating system on it or the MBR :Master Boot Record" is corrupt.
Try downloading "Hirens Boot CD" and burn to cd and boot from it.
It has a lot of useful Utilities on it for restoring MBR and formatting and partitioning
