At present the system is all but dead.\015\012\015\012Power-on OKHDD & DVD appear okGetting power to USB portsNo boot screenKeyboard dead\015\012\015\012A few days ago I was hit by a backdoor virus. and believe this is the reason for my problem as it is a utility to tweak CP. I got the system back up one time and got rid of tha virus. After removing infected program II tried to restore my system to a point before installing the program. At this point the system locked and was forced to do a hard shutdown. My Acer notebook has never booted again.\015\012\015\012I have re-seated memory and HDD Have swapped out HDD, removed battery and recycled power. and no luck there. I even powered up without HDD and got same results.\015\012\015\012I want to know if I removing the CMOS battery would help? I can see the battery and have no problem trying, however it would be nice to have a case diagram for accssing the battery. \015\012\015\012Help is needed in a big way!\015\012\015

There is no solutionz!
For my case I think its a bad BIOS.Normally its a hard step to reprogram a BIOS.But first try thet step you said about removing CMOS battery and leave it for atleast 1 day(Without Notebook battery or AC) if its doesn't then try to read this one.No harm in reading even thought its a HP website..
