Re: acer aspire 3610 not booting pass flash screen
You can reinstall os with ur xp.
with xp disk in drive at startup do you get option to boot from cd.
if not go into bios at startup and enable cd boot in boot options as first;save and exit;restart.
I assume you know how to install windows(xp)

try doing a system restore on it.. more than likely you have a virus that is turning the backlight down to reduce visibility on the screen. definelty disconnect from your network while doing this... alot of times hackers will do this so you wont be able to see them navigating through your files..
try to power up with power cord only and see if it works. If no lights turn on than your motherboard is dead. If it turns on and nothing happens make sure there is memory installed(RAM). If it turns on and you see windows screen than it shuts off than your operating system needs to be installed again. Also, you can try booting in safe mode by hitting f8 when you initially start your computer and see if it stays on and if it does you have a virus most likely. Good luck.
When you turn on the pc keep pressing F8 until it boots into safe mode.
when in safe mode look in the list for 'Last Known Good Configuration' and select the line with the up/down arrows on keyboard and press enter.
the pc should then reboot back into windows, if not and you still get the flashing cursor, then there is a boot.ini file fault where the sysstem cannot find the c:\ volume to start windows, and you will need to borrow a copy of windows to do a system repair.
