Default Acer aspire 3003wlmi problem

I think this is the right forum to post this in.
A mate of mine gave me a Acer aspire 3003wlmi laptop he needs to get working. When I try turning it on sometimes Acer comes up on the screen for a few seconds then just black screen or sometimes nothing comes on the screen but the fan and everything else is working like the CD drive etc. I took it to a mate of mine and he checked to see if the processor is correctly seated and it was. I replaced the ram still no luck. I donít what else to check any help would be appreciated.

would the acer logo come up on the screen or would the cd drive etc turn on if the mother board is busted?

i doubt it's the motherboard. Can you go into the BIOS (hitting f12)?
