If the problem came back so quickly then flashing the BIOS was probably not the real solution. Flashing the BIOS is only usually necessary to fix some specific thing that it was intended for.

Most likely you have an intermittent hardware fault. Check internal connections as best you can and if the RAM is accessible remove it and clean its edge connectors. Unfortunately many things can cause a black screen.

Do you ever see anything at all on the screen?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If the screen is permanently blank then it is almost certainly a hardware fault. Does it sound as if it is booting up - with lights etc? If so it would be worth trying an external screen on it just to make sure it is not a fault with the screen or its internal connections.

If it is totally dead then it could be the charger unit has failed.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi Lena, it seems this is a common problem with Acer's. Google

acer black screen death

there will be many hits.

If the screen is constantly black AND it does NOT display on an external monitor, it seems a small pcb is the cause.

There are youtube videos showing how to replace.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

I have an Acer aspire that did something like this. It turned out the battery was dead and the connector which the power cord plugs into was bad on the laptop.

I would get the computer started, but it would only run for a little while then shut off unexpectedly. The power light on the laptop would be orange until I put a little stress on the connector one way or the other. And the battery charge indicator at the startup screen (windows 8) would change between the charging (powered battery icon) and battery icons. If I unplugged the brick from the wall, it would immediately shut off. So, the battery was only good enough to just keep it running with the laptop plugged in. But if I moved or bumped the machine at all, the connection would break and the machine would shut off.

It seems what happened over time, the weak power connector inside the laptop had only been making intermittent connection. So, the battery wasn't getting a good charge on it ever. And running down quite often until eventually being drained and unable to recharge at all.

I got a new battery for $60 somewhere online, I can't remember.
I Still haven't fixed the connector itself.
