My Acer does not want to turn on. Just keeps flashing on and off. If you time it right and hit esc button it takes you to a repair screen. Tried advance options, tried recover files, nothing works. Fails it says.Any ideas

Hello mban,

Try attaching it to an external monitor, and checking if the external monitor flashes as well. If not,

1. Your screen might be broken. Try pinching the screen (not with a lot of force) on the sides and seeing if the flashing slows or goes away.

2. Reinstall the drivers for the CPU, GPU and display.

If it does not connect to the external monitor at all, try going into the repair screen and go back to a previous backup or date.

While the lack of seeing could be the monitor, the fact that it won't stay on and is failing the repair wouldn't be the monitor.

If it is failing to repair when you run the options for recovery or repair, then you need to have it looked at. You might have a failing drive, which better to have it looked at, and get what you can off of it, before the drive completely goes and you lose everything.

If it is under warranty, contact the manufacturer. Just be sure to mention to them about wanting to save your stuff if you can. If it isn't under warranty, then try a local tech.
