This is generally the indication that the hard drive has failed and needs replaced. Replace the hard drive, format it, and install a new operating system and you'll be set.

My acer aspire 1360 wont turn on when i power up al;l i get is a black screen, the motherboard light flashes once and then goes off leaving only the power light on please help!!


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.

Laptop screen wont work.


Assuming you don't have 2 drives installed in your laptop then you will need to get a windows system disk or install disk and boot up with this in the laptop to load windows whatever into your hard drive and set your laptop up to run on the new drive. Here is Microsoft's tutorial on how to install and set up windows:http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/winxp/default.mspx
Hope this helps you.
