Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I turned on my laptop after an hour i turned it off, and it started up ok, just without any picture. The screen is blank, but if I tilt it to the light, I can see everything, but just barely. it's like the brightness has been turned way down, but I've never touched it. I was told it might be the back light that has blown. i've had this similar problem before, but found that it was only because I plugged it into an external screen. but this is no the case.

Have you tried tilting the LCD and see if the symptom change?
If tilting the LCD shows good video, then you have a loose or bad LCD cable going to the System board.
If tilting the LCD does not change the symptoms,then it is the "Inverter" board.
The laptop have an "Inverter" board that goes out and causes this problem. It is located just below the screen on most laptops. I usually purchase them from here:

    I know it's been years, But I totally forgot about this website. Just so you know. The laptop is in full working order. after 3 years of not having a screen, replacing the back light unit, screen ( which was returned) and everything else, I gave up on it and just attached a screen to it. Then 3 years later I decided to upgrade the operating system from Vista to Win7.... and 'as the light shone brightly and the Advent logo staring back at me, I knew I could finally see!' Stupid Window's Vista!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you connect an external monitor to your laptop and the picture is OK, replace the laptop screen.

Aspire 7250-3821 white screen only


Have you tried with a external monitor, if that works the gfx card is ok and fault lies in a connector that has released from the motherboard. The lcd isn't getting the signal from gfx card wich only can be the connector or the control circuits(matrix circuits) for the display the latter example requires a new screen.
But if the external monitor doesn't show anything it's the graphics card mounted on the motherboard that has given up and that isn't something can be fixed without replacing the motherboard.

  1. Take out your battery and the power button for about 60secs.
  2. Start the laptop using the Adapter [without the battery]
  3. Lighten up your laptop...remove any external device attached [printer,scanner,pen drives etc.].
  4. It could also be a RAM problem,try changing the RAM if you have two start with one and exchange them.Clean the edges of the RAM where it get fits into the slots and blow some air in the slots to clean it up of any dirt.
After that when the system starts you can do the system restore START--ALL PROGRAMS--ACCESSORIES--SYSTEM TOOLS--SYSTEM RESTORE to restore it back to an earlier date when laptop was ok. THEN LATER ON PUT THE BATTERY BACK IN.
  • Try restarting after an hour gap.
  • If this doesn't solve your problem call the company people.Their might be a Video Card problem or any other internal hardware problem.
