Acer Series 230/280 notebook with XP won't boot. Instead I see a white screen that flickers intermittently to black for the first minute or so, then just reverts to the blank white screen. The HD light is on at first, then goes out, and nothing happens. Then it lights again for a while etc.

I put the system CD in and booted. Essentially the same thing happens, tho I can hear the drive working. Ditto when I try disk 1 of the Recovery CD.

I tried following instructions to hit the F2 key, but nothing happens.

I'm using external power, not the battery.


Help?
