I just got my acer laptop back from acer in temple texas. I used for a few days, then tried to do a recovery on my own. I did the factory restore w/o back up disks ( because I did not have files i wanted to save). It went through it's process and restarted, but screen froze up. I manually shut it down and restarted. It went through the prompts and when it was done, I did my password thing and windows started up. Or so I thought. I have my mouse arrow, but the screen is all black. No start menu, nothing. I'm sick of this. I just spent 50 bucks sending it to the factory and they rebooted my operating system, but I cannot do it myself? Someone out there please help!
