My acer aspire won't start. The power button is blue and the screen is black.
I recently started using a cpap machine which has wifi and that's when my computer stopped working.
 
If the lights are on, then it actually may be on. Try this...

1. Turn the laptop off (not sleep or hibernate but off).
2. Connect an external monitor to the laptop.
3. Turn on the external monitor.
4. Turn on the laptop.

NOTE: You may have to press an "external monitor" button. Could be the f4 button or a button with two monitors on it, for the external monitor to work.

If you can see fine on the external monitor, then your attached display, or the ribbon cable that connects it, are your problem.

If you can't see on the external monitor at all, or the problem occurs on the external monitor as well, then it is probably the graphics card/GPU that is the problem, which may require the motherboard be replaced.

You may also want to try hitting CTRL + SHIFT + WIN + B to try and reset your graphics driver as another possible fix.

Same happened to my aspire . Out of warranty . Unit worked fine in the morning and then not working in the afternoon .
Undo all the screws in the back cover , remove the disk drive and undo the hidden 3 screws in the disk drive frame then remove and reconnect every easy connection battery power , monitor ribbon cable then ram and SSD then power it back up and hey Presto it works . Took about 10 mins after I removed all the screws .
