    Acer Aspire 9502 wont boot after using recovery disc's

    I have an Acer Aspire 9502 (I know what you all think about Acer and i agree) i used the Recovery Discs provided with the Laptop to restore back to original setup and all looked to be going well. Went throught the whole setup fine UNTIL,

    when i was asked to re boot it it would not boot up unless i pressed alt + F10 at POST, this went on for around a day until the Laptop when into standby mode.

    NOW

    it wont boot up full stop it goes to the acer screen and the press F2 for boot setup has dissapeared then it goes to a blank (black) screen with a flashing cursor in the top left.

    All the keys work, pressing any button F2 del or anything does nothing. Alt F10 does not work im pretty stuck.

    I have removed the RAM and swapped the sticks round it but still no joy..I have tried to put a Windows XP disc in but it is not booting from Disc and can not get to BIOS to make it boot from disc.

    Any suggestions

    Thanks in advance

    Check the fan/heatsink assembly hasn't popped off the CPU (which causes the thermal overload thingy to kick in and shut it off)

    This is 99.99% of problems with Acer's

    I have checked this and all looks ok...the worrying thing is the text in the bottom left on boot up

    "Press F2 for BIOS" has disappeared
    I have removed the hard drive and tried to boot with a disk in it..nothing, it is trying to access the disc but nothing happens

    im totally confused, I see you manchester based is there anywhere you know of in manchester where would look at this problem

    no its out of warrenty, even if it did had one i would be hard pushed to return it, last time i did that with an old laptop (to acer) they returned it still broken and when i sent it away again it never came back.

    Hence why i have this one, its the one they provided me with as a replacement to the one they lost
