Default Re: Acer Aspire 3500

So it never boots into Windows? Does it just sit at the Acer logo screen? Have you tried hooking it up to an external monitor to see it fits better.

In my opinion when a computer gets stuck at the logo screen it's probably the hard drive. You might be able to reload Windows (of course all the data will be lost) or it might need to be replaced altogether.
