I purchased two Acer 1410's. One is working fine but the other has developed a startup/boot issue and I know fear it is dead..
Worked fine for 4 days and then all of a sudden we go to turn it on and get a blank screen.
iv taken out the ram, hdd, held down the power button, tried all crazy combos.
If i take the computer apart a take out the CMOS battery I can get it to turn on and start to boot, but it freezes on the windows logo and on the restart Im back to the blank screen. The computer power is on but there is no activity...
any ideas?! Im so pissed off that this is a brand new computer and its screwed up already.. I tried contacting acer but they are hopeless.
they told me three times to use a recovery disc after I repeatedly told them the 1410 does not have a DVD/CD drive.
