Question about Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook
I'm sorry but do you expect to be able to fix this? First the boot problem, the hard drive inside the laptop is extremely fragile and if the laptop is dropped the disc breaks, it would need to be replaced to a new one most likely.
Then the screen, either the cables are not connected properly or either the screen or the mainboard of the machine possibly cracked or broke when it hit the floor.
This won't be covered by warranty, the new hard drive will cost 20-60$ and then the screen problem - Try using a external display, your laptop has a display port on the back of it, if the external display works, you see picture just fine there but the laptops main display is white, that tells us that very likely the screen on the laptop would need to be replaced entirely, but first I would check the cables that they are OK.
Screen and a hard drive, 200$ maybe a bit less or a bit more. Just for the parts.
If the laptop does not work with a external display, if the external display goes white as well then most likely the mainboard got hit pretty bad on the fall, and then its just not worth the repair anymore, new mainboard is going to cost you 200 to 500$.
So worst case your looking at a repair bill that matches the price of a new laptop.
