    I'm getting the same thing. When I startup my computer, it connects and displays my screen loading, but after 10 seconds reverts to no signal.

After half a day of tinkering around with my new Acer I fixed my problem, which I think is yours also. I connected it to my notebook, it read the signal 'D-Sub' or something like that, and after my notebook finished startup, it reverted to no signal. I tried it with my desktop and it worked just fine. The display will only show up on one output device. It worked fine on my desktop because I was unplugging my monitor in order to hook up the projector. Hooking the projector up to my notebook left the display panel still active and that was where it displayed. In case I'm not making sense, the solution is this: After setting everything up, hit Control+Alt+F1 to switch display from your screen to the projector. To switch back, hit Control+Alt+F3

A screen saver is an executable file (scr) and it could also be a script meant to do your computer harm or steal your information. I would give this one up, it was probably something bad... be thankfull your system has protection in force!

My acer Laptop 5610Z on the start-up has a white screen i can hear the signals as if it has started up but cant see anything only a white screen?

You can try to connect it to an external monitor using the vga connector on the side of the laptop.
If that works, try and hold down the function button and press the F8 key. That should switch between the two screens. If the Laptop screen still does not come on, It is probably bad.

Hope this helps!greed03_5.jpg

Don't know how to turn it on

Check power lead,press the button on the right at the bottom of the screen if a light comes on then it is on. Start PC, light should go green and monitor should give a display. If there is no life at all then the monitor is dead, change it :( If the light is on but starting PC doesn't give a display then check lead from PC, try another monitor with PC and if it works change resolution to something basic like 1026 x 768 @ 60Hz then try the acer again. If another monitor doesn't work your PC has a graphics problem; Check the lead thoroughly, check in bios settings the display is set right, try a new graphics card

Ive been having problems restoring my acer arcade feature. ive tried restoring it from the acer empowering tech, but an error keeps it from functioning properly. i just want to find out how to start...

Hi there,

If you're talking about setting your system back to factory settings, what you need to do is this:

1 - When you turn your system on and the screen shows the ACER logo, press F2. This will bring you the the BIOS screen.

2 - Have a look through and find the option called D2D Recovery, make sure this is set to Enabled. Highlight it, and look at the right-hand side of the screen. It will give you a list of keys that you need to press, i.e.Ctrl+Alt+F10. Make note of these.

3 - Save the changes and exit. The system will reboot.

4 - When the screen shows the ACER logo, press the keys that you just made a note of. This will take you to Acer's eRecovery program. Follow the instructions to restore to factory.

Hope I have been of help.
