Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

Stuck on Reformat

\015 Hey Guys,\015\012I'm running an Acer Aspire 3680, Intel Celeron 1.6 GHz. Yesterday, I turned it on and a blank screen showed up and since then, I haven't been able to figure out what to do. Sad part is, I can't even access Command Prompt to run chkdsk /r or fixboot. I'm willing to reformat the whole thing and I've tried to do so as well. But when I access my CD, it says "Setup is preparing windows ...bla bla bla" and then comes back to the blank screen and gets stuck there forever.\015\012\015\012Help Please.\015

I have an Acer Aspire BL51. When I turn it on I get the screen "Unfortunately Windows did not start properly, what do you want to do?" (All screens are paraphrased) When I choose "Boot normally" then the system gets stuck and never finishes booting. When I choose "Safe mode" (with or without networking, etc), it gets stuck and then shuts off entirely. The only way to restart it at that point is to unplug it and plug it back in.
