If you dont have signal on your laptop screen, could be:
Broken LCD, Bad inverter, or bad graphics card.

Hi, I have acer aspire 5520,2 Gb RAM... When I turn on my acer,everithing works just fine,exept monitor,it remains black,When I try ecternal monitor,it works fine,windows wors fine to,everithing but the...


Aspire 5520 has LCD Display. The screen displays becomes dark/ dim if there is no backlight.
There are two parts responsible for lighting the display. First is the CCFL (Cold Cathode Florecent Lamp), which is the back light and the second is the Inverter board, which provides high voltage to the CCFL. These parts are inside the LCD screen. Either of the parts may be faulty or in some rare cases both. Also, the video data cable may be loose or faulty, which can be identified only after opening the top cover.
So, my advice is that you get it properly checked by any professional for replacement of Inverter or CCFL.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

To get the image on the external monitor, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The image will divert to the external monitor automatically.

My computer screen is black


Turn your computer off.
Make sure both cords from monitor are plugged in.
Make sure you have pressed any required "on" button on front or side.
Try your monitor on a friend's computer.

Tell us whether or not it worked there and what kind of monitor it is.

sounds like a bad video card honestly. I doubt the monitor was bad.

Acer laptop has developed a fully dark screen


I am assuming that you have tried switching from external monitor output and local monitor. There should be a hot key on the keyboard to switch it. Also, try looking to make sure the driver for the display is up to date. I f it was update recently try rolling the driver back. If you need help with doing any of this post a comment. Hope this has helped some.

Acer Aspire 9810 Screen Problem


Hi No otto,
On the bottom row of keys, you will see one marked Fn, in a different color. Hodl that and look at your top row of keys. Should be one with a laptop screen, and a monitor. The little graphics will be the same color as the Fn key. Tap that once, wait, see if the screen comes to life. Usually that key is set to choose "Just laptop screen, just external monitor, or both", with each tap.
Good luck,
