My computer's "driver" won't start therefore my computer won't boot.
I push the power button and the computer turns on, however the screen that it usually goes to after the acer screen doesn't appear. Another black screen with 5 lines shows up and repeats itself. We took out the battery and unplugged the laptop from the AC adapter but have no success. What do you suggest?

Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

what device? is *********** board won't start? Or a hardware doesn't start like ram or your printer If the problem is your motherboard check all your hardwares and connectors like this:
If the motherboard won't start if you click the power button check the LED(the small light bulb on your motherboard) if its glowing. If not, check the connector of your power supply or check the power supply if its working by looking its fan if revolving.
If you push the button and there's a sign of power but didn't start up that will appear on your screen check the connection of your monitor screen to your desktop computer. If it's connected, remove your RAM from the motherboard and insert it to another memory slot to check if it's broken.
Last, if you push the power button and here 1 short beep but the boot screen didn't appeared from your screen check your graphic card. Remove the graphic card and re-insert it again to its graphic card slot and plug in your monitor connector to it. If it still remain that way, buy a new graphic card.
1. Turn the Laptop off
2. Remove the battery
3. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop
4. Disconnect any peripheral devices from the laptop such as printer usb cables, PCMCIA cards etc.
5. Push and hold the power button for 60 seconds then let go
6. Connect the AC adapter to your laptop
7. Push power button to turn on the laptop
8. If this resolves the issue shutdown the laptop connect the battery and turn laptop back on
If issue is not resolved restart the computer and begin tapping the F8 key repeatedly until you see a screen that gives you options to enter different modes. Highlight "Safemode" and press enter. If the computer boots completely into safemode you likely have a driver that has corrupted or a hardware device that has failed. Likely driver failures are video card drivers. Got to Device Manager and uninstall the video card driver and restart the system. You can do this with other drivers as well.
You may have turned off the LCD screen. After you turn the computer on, hit Fn+F4 keys and then wait a moment. Then try it again. The F4 key cycles the video output through three settings: from LCD only, to external monitor only, to LCD + external video. You could also try connecting the video output on the back of the computer to a different monitor to see if it's a screen problem on the laptop of a broken video card.
The F4 key has the blue icons for a little TV screens. The Fn key is in the lower left corner.
About two weeks ago I started getting a "Catalyst Control Center" error about the video driver for my MX6453, so I assume there was some sort of update that was pushed through Microsoft or from ATI that changed display settings or drivers. Your computer may have had an extreme reaction to the software update if you accepted it. I did not accept the update and my computer works fine.
You can also try to boot in safe mode which should prevent the advanced drivers from installing. Basically you hit F8 as it's powering up. See here for more info: http://www.pchell.com/support/safemode.shtml
