I have an Acer Aspire that is about 2 yrs old and today when I turned it on the power light came on for a second then went out..did that twice then stayed on but all I have is a black screen. No acer startup logo..nothing. I hooked it up to an external monitor...still the same. I tried the battery trick I read about on Google and even tried to boot up via Bios on a flash drive...nothing. I'm trying not to have to take it to a shop but I might have to. Any advice? I have everything on that computer, I could just cry right now!
