It could be a faulty HD.
It is just so hard to diagnose the problem. Without being able to get the system to at least post we can't run any diagnostic software to find the problem.

It could go throgh the post code and tell me what the problem is and if its a power supply problem.
The HD is faulty but it should have no effect on the system, right?
As for the fact that it could be a faulty connection, slim to none.
Reson: It has started up normly and randomly in the past. Basicly i was figiting with it one day, i turned it on and it didn't restart itself. OMG! it works! I saw the acer screen but it all whent away qickly....
Sad story huh...

According to everything we have done the system never even posts but just restarts correct?
I would hate to tell you to spend money on something that may not be able to help you since the system doesn't even get to the first post screen.
That means it really isn't even getting thru the bios reading before it restarts.

POST is not a part from BIOS. In fact it has no relationship with BIOS. Exept for the fact that after the first stage of POST is over It automaticly launches BIOS.
So in scientificly proven theory, the POST card should work anyway...
However the thing im worried about is the fact that the USB voltage keeps on going up and down all the time, and it could do damage to the board...

This is why I'm saying the continued starting and restarting may end up rendering the system useless. I can not tell you not to buy the card and to not continue with your direction. I will tell you with what I have seen and the symptoms you have described... your system is heading toward a total crash and burn.

I have never used the post card you link to so I don't know how accurate they are or if they really are dependable on what they state they can do.
I can say that a good set of eyes on the system and hands on diagnostics will do more then what the advice I can give.
My one suggestion is that you make sure the shop knows NOT TO FORMAT your hd without backing up your data. This will normally cost extra as they usually will not backup customers data.
I understand this is frustrating and if you would like i can have a second Tech Staff member look this topic over and let you know what they think.
I am here to do what I can to make sure you are ok with what we advise. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

it was a glitch. In the video card. You see the videocard had a plastic pannel on top and when it overheated it came closer and closer to the circuits. Finnaly it made contact and made the videocard useless. All i had to do is take off the panel and clean everything with commpressed air........ However for anyone out there who is using this post as an anwser to their question DONT! The problem may be different than mine!
But it didn't last for long. it shortly died......
Im iether gonna buy a boneless laptop and modify it untill it will never break. or i will finaly buy the post card to hopefully fix this laptop and other computers that might break in the future..

Sorry but it seems the option at this point is to take the hd out and get a external enclosure for a 2.5 inch drive.
Then when and if you can get to a desktop system you can at least backup your important data.
