    Have you tried?

    Use a monitor only, not a TV.

    It seems like it is trying like my reply to the other person it's making a sound like it's starting up ( not when I hit the power button ) but every few seconds it will make the sound like it's booting everything up but then suddenly stops and right before it stops it makes a beep if that means anything

    If you are not seeing the BIOS splash screen and hear repeating beeps, I would say it is not POSTing. The Power On Self Test is failing. Why did you do the factory reset in the first place?

    I did to clean it up but it obviously was a bad idea xD, but now something els is happening, it's connecting to the monitor now and it says in big green letters acer, and below it, it keeps saying diagnosing your pc but then it beeps once and then says preparing automatic repair but then goes back to diagnosing your pc and it keeps repeating this process

    OK, it is POSTing so that's good. The one Beep is the normal beep when it reboots. The rebooting cycle isn't normal but now we know its likely not a hardware issue. I'd try doing another factory restore. If nobody else has any better suggestions that is. Wait a little while and see what other members say.
