Problem Resetting Laptop


New Member
I have a Acer V3-551-8469 that I got semi new. Right from the start when I turned it on it wouldn't work right. It would start up with the Acer screen, then just go black. To actually see the desktop I had to sleep the computer and then wake it up. I then tried to refresh the PC but that did not fix anything so through the PC settings I selected to do full restore and erase everything. I did that and it shutdown and has just been sitting at a black screen for around 2 hours. The hard drive light is blinking. Im not sure what to do or if I should just wait it out.
