Windows 7: Acer won't start, Black screen / Windows failed to start

Troubleshooting is interactive here. In other words, we give you an illustrated tutorial or step or series of steps and you try them then report back the results.

If you don't understand a step or have problems doing it then you only need to ask back and we will clarify it for you.

If you don't do the steps OR ask back then we assume you are not doing the work. So to report back nothing and then later come back and say you tried everything is simply not believable.

Tell your friend to check if HD is registered in BIOS setup. If not reinstall or check the cables. If that fails then run the HD tests in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

Why is my screen black when I start Windows 7?
Video adapter problems are the most common cause of this issue. First, try to find out if there's a problem with the cables you're using or the way they're connected. If you have an alternate way of connecting your monitor to your PC, try it. For example, if your monitor is connected using an...
