    I has an Acer Aspire 6930 that will not boot into Windows Vista 32bit. When I power it up, it goes through BIOS and then freezes at a blank screen with a flashing cursor. I've tried doing a system restore, but end up with the same problem. I've tried changing the boot sequence and tried booting from a USB flash drive, and a cd-rom drive with [email protected] installed... but the system still freezes at a blank screen with the blinking cursor. There's also a faint repetitive noise as well, however I can't tell if it's the hard drive or not. The laptop is out of warranty, so Acer isn't willing to do anything without a $200 fee. Any suggestions on what could be the problem, or how to troubleshoot this issue?

    Okay, so I found the problem. The hard drive went bad. Spindle froze and the PCB went bad.
