Think my Acer Notebook might be dead?

Switched it on last night, it flashes up with the Acer screen but then the screen goes completely blank and the internet light doesn't come on. If I am very quick I can press F2 or F12 and tried changing the Boot options but still nothing. It is plugged into the mains and is showing full power. Any suggestions please? Many thanks

My acer has Hitachi hard drive try downloading and burning to disc their diagnostic tool and booting from that to rule out a corrupt boot sector.

Thanks for your reply but it doesn't have a disc drive I'm afraid!

Hard drive or is it solid state drive

Sorry don't understand. It is an Acer Aspire One if that helps? Thanks again

Do you have a full model number... some BIOS issues as here but DONT do anything like this until you are sure of the problem.

Think this is the same as the Yahoo link but gets a good recommend on Acer forum,
