I have a black screen on my Acer Apire 4552 Laptop. I am fairly good at fixing computer problems, but this has me stumped? This is what I have done so far:

1. Took off the battery and held down the power button for 2min, then plugged the power back in without the battery and nothing happened. tried this also with holding down the F8 and also again holding down the f10 button. Nothing.

2. I thought it was the hard drive , so I had bought a new one and put it in and hit F10 and my computer started to boot up! So I decided to put my old hard drive back in and by chance it came on and started to boot up also. I was very happy and I used the computer for 1 day with my power cord plugged in, but when I unplugged it and went to plug it back in later and use it again it was back to the dreaded Black screen!

3. As suggested, I took my computer back apart and pulled out the both RAM memory cards and cleaned them and tried switching them in each others slot as suggested and re-booted the computer multiple times, but to no avail. Still nothing?

4. Another thing I notice: My battery had gone bad a year ago and I bought another one and had been using it fine, but it does get much much hotter than my old one as it runs. So I don't know if it is shutting down over that or not? I put it in the freezer for 15min as suggested by others and tryed turning it on again, but still nothing!
