There are some possible options, look close to the lcd screen with a light;
1. If you see something on the screen, but it's very dim, then you will have to replace the CCFL/Inverter of your laptop. The backlight screen would be gone bad, and you will have to replace first the inverter board-a circuit which controls the backlight-. If this doesnt help, then your problem would be related to the inverter cable or the CCFL tube.
2. If you cannot see nothing on screen, then the problem would be related to the LVDS video output. It could happen that the video output inside the laptop don't work property, but external video does work good. This is the worst situation, because you will have to replace the motherboard.

May I ask is the wifi driver installed correctly?
If yes check the little switch that enables and disables wifi, it's very easy to switch it off by mistake.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

HI There,

The easiest way to troubleshoot your problem is to connect your laptop to an external monitor. If the lines on the laptop screen don't appear on the monitor, then you know you need to replace your screen and screen inverter.

If the lines appear on the external monitor as well, then your video card on the motherboard of the laptop is failing and you'll need a new motherboard or want to consider a new laptop, depending on the repair cost.

Sounds like bad news. It's not good to continue using a wiggly port. You'll likely have to have a technician look at it.

Yes, it is possible to use Windows 7,but acer doesn't release Windows 7 drivers for your Notebook as they don't support it.

But you can use the drivers for Windows Vista as 90% of the drivers meant for Windows Vista works fine with Windows 7.usually you can have problem with your webcam drivers.

You can download vista drivers from the link below


That's it.
