    I have an Acer Aspire 3680 and yesterday, when I tried to boot up, it gives a black screen, no images, prompts, sounds etc. I can hear the fan and the lights on the front are on.

    I have read many posts and tried some things but I am now lost. I have tried;

    *Plugging in external monitor - cannot get anything on second screen
    *Taking out battery, draining power, restarting numerous time - no luck
    *Hitting function keys to try to get to set-up screen - no luck

    The memory is very full (close to capacity) althouh I'm not sure if this is related.

    I have read in some posts about dowloading BIOS files on a memory stick but I can't find any information specific to the 3680.

    Thanks in advance for your help. I really need to get booted up so I can recover and backup a lot of personal files and photos.
