Re: black screen

Doesnt that auto update **** u off.if u choose to install in windows it slows things down and when you choose to install at shutdown you have compatability problems at startup.
start up with os in drive and choose repair ( "r" ) in prompt type in "chkdsk" this may repair any fault and enable boot.
if not startup again with os in drive and choose repair or install...not the repair ( "r" ) option in the first screen.(in first screen choose install,system checks existing os and informs you of it and asks to confirm install new or repair.

Acer 3100 screen wont turn on.

Have you tried hooking an external monitor to the system? If that works you may have accidently switched the screen to an outside monitor. Or you could have a bad connection. Try starting in safe mode and see if it works.

Acer Aspire 3100 series. Display screen getting dark

This is such a user error. I had the same problem on my 3100-1718. It was as simple as holding down the Fn key and using the left and right arrow keys to change the brightness... I am a goofball for ever letting this stay dark for a month !

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.
