Possibly the monitor is defective - usually most laptops have a blue plug at the back for an external monitor, if plugging in a normal monitor brings up a screen, then likely the laptop monitor is defective. If you get a splash screen and bios info on trying to start it,it indicates your windows is defective or has lost it's start-up files - a windows reinstall will fix that.
WinXP: Right click on blank desktop, click Properties, click Settings tab. Move the "Screen resolution" slide bar so that the whole screen is used up. In your case the vertical resolution is higher than the screens or horizontal resolution is not high enough.
Screens tends to do scaling. Check the "Native Resolution" of the screen and set it as the Screen Resolution.

firts put the original harddrives back in place :) then you need to enter the 3000's bios If I remember right thats done by pressing f2 or del in a acer. it should tell you what button is correct on the bootup screen.
Then you need to change the boot order to haveing the dvd/cd drive before the harddrive, since right now its booting strate from the harddrive.
Then you should be able to restore the operateing system with the disks that came with the laptop and or from a normal xp or vista cd/dvd.
