What is your warranty status? You tone makes me think you don't have one?!?
I have an Acer Aspire 5735Z running Windows Vista (service pack 2 recently installed and working properly)
When I turn on the machine, I get the Acer screen, then microsoft screen, then it goes greeny-black, then black, and then I hear the Windows 'music' but don't see the logo that usually accompanies the sound and then..nothing! What To Do????
I think we got a lemon! Within two months of purchasing this machine I had to replace the harddrive - please tell me I don't have to do that again! (This laptop only cost us about $450 and quoted cost of service and repair are starting to exceed that amount! I've not owned it a year yet!)
