I have a very old Acer Aspire laptop that I havent used for yeeaaaaars, it was working.

A few years ago I moved my laptop's hard disk to my desktop PC. Hard disk had windows 7 on it, I upgraded it to windows 10 and used it for years on my desktop pc. Now I moved that hard disk back to my laptop.

All I get is a blank screen with a small white line on the top left corner, and whenever I press a button it makes a beep noise. I can also hear the hard disk spinning, hard disk get recognized in bios.

Which Acer Aspire model?
If the disk get recognized in the BIOS, it could be that the Windows 10 settings, from another system, are not compatible with the laptop hardware.
You could perform a clean Windows 10 installation.
