Question about Computers & Internet
I recently gave a so called computer wizz feind my acer lap top as it would take forever to load. i wanted it set back to brand new as it was second hand. he re set the hard drive put windows xp on it. now on start up the screen quickly flashes up the acer logo then screen goes blank. when i hit the esc button for too long it makes a beep sound ans every key pushed after that beeps like the low battery alarm beep. dont know how to go from here as i cant afford to take it somewhere else and was hoping to fix it myself. he mentioned looking for the bios if that helps, he said it works if its plugged into a monitor but there is nothing wrong with the screen as it appears on start up.
Try accessing the operating system via safe mode (F8 on startup) if it opens, then your friends maybe installed a driver that conflicts with your system video driver. if this doesn't solve the glitch, reinstalling the operating system might do the trick.
