Acer: Black screen with blinking cursor

July 30, 2010 at 03:25:16
Specs: Windows XP
When I turned on my Acer laptop, languages came up and I chose English. It then started installing ACER ARCADE DELUXE. When it was over, the laptop shutdown. I turned it back on, and immediately ACER ARCADE DELUXE opened without even getting pass the Windows thing. After I clicked exit a few times, it went into hibernation. I turned it on a few more times and the same happened.

I looked on a thread and heard that the HOLD button on the CineMedia thing couldn't be pressed or it wouldn't work, so I didn't hold it.

I restarted and managed to get into SAFE MODE. Same thing happened while in safe mode: ACER ARCADE DELUXE appeared.

I restarted the laptop AGAIN, and the black screen with the blinking "_" appeared. I checked the disk drive and found a SIMS 3 game. So I took it out and restarted to try to get into SAFE MODE again (by pressing F2). No sucess. After NUMEROUS attempts of clicking F2, F8, F10, no luck! I can't seem to get into BIOS.

I tried CTRL+ALT+DEL too, but instead it restarted the laptop.
