My other computer recently had the same issues as many others but the difference is that f8 doesn't work. I've repeatedly tapped in at the startup and the advanced configuration/settings will not open.

Try the following:

1. Boot up as normal, and wait until you see the cursor on the black screen
2. When you're booted, press Ctrl+Alt+Del
3. In the Processes tab of the Task Manager, find explorer.exe
4. If you find one, right-click it and select End Process
5. Select File ? Run
6. Enter explorer and press Enter - the desktop should show up
7. After it has finished loading, reboot
8. This time, your desktop will show up without the black screen

Does the black screen appears after the Windows Logo ?
Good Luck

No, it only loads the computer's manufacture.
So it'll show Acer with the f2 option, then it loads to the blinking cursor and that's where it stops.

Try this 1

Go to BIOS --> Load default settings --> Make sure that your hard drive is

detected in the BIOS --> Set the first boot device as "Hard disk" --> Save the

settings and exit from the BIOS.

Good Luck

I've pressed f2 (BIOS?), Loaded the default settings and made that the Hard drive was detected, but I wasn't entirely sure how to set it as the first boot device. I've attempted to do so but it still ended up not working.
Thanks though

I think this means that the hdd is corrupted or the mbr (master boot record) is missing. Try using recovery disks or your Windows disk to fix this problem
