How can I restart my Acer laptop computer. When I push the start button it tries to start then clicks off. The screen is black. It didn't come with any disks to restart. No backup.

Try pulling out the battery and also the power plug. Hold down the power button on the laptop for maybe 20 seconds so it can discharge any remaining charge on the board. Then plug it back in and see if it will boot at that point. If that doesnt help, try repeating the above steps, but also take out the cmos battery as well to try and reset the bios on the motherboard.
