Acer Aspire 7540 will not boot past BIOS

  1. Hello Everyone.

    I have an Acer Asprire 7540 which wil not boot any further than the bios.

    I can enter the bios and change settings but once this is done all I get is a black screen.

    I have changed the boot up sequence to CD in order that I can reformat or re-load the recovery disc, but this has no joy - still black screen after the save and exit.

    The problem started after a reboot. I had previously been downloading a torrent before the re-boot. No warnings from an up to date AV.

    Hope you can help.

    Seems to be sorted

    I seem to have got the machine up and running.

    I removed the battery and kept the power button depressed for a minute.
    Replaced the battery and all seems ok. Fingers crossed.

    I got is sorted but thanks for being there.
