Hello, I have a problem with my Acer laptop. When I switch it on all the system lights turn on but the fan starts then stops after a clicking sound is heard. The screen is totally black throughout. I cannot afford to buy a new laptop at the current moment so any help would be appreciated. Thanks
PS I am a computer noob so please dumb down any technical terms.

Sorry about that ! It's impossible to make a diagnosis at a distance. I suggest you consult you local repair shop.

Good luck

P.S. Acer is not a quality brand
