You'll have to check the warranty by using the serial #.. call Acer back and just ask to see if the warranty is still active.. don't ask for tech support.. they'll route you to india and you'll be stuck again.


As for the display going out... it's a little thing called the inverter. This is very common and not too difficult to fix.
I would however NOT replace it myself since it can put out one hell of a shock.
try this: https://secure2.tx.acer.com/FixMyAcer3/FixMyAcer.aspx

The inverter is located just under the plastic housing below the LCD panel. You can google: LCD INVERTER ASPIRE 5100.

best wishes.. this one isn't easy..

oh and your laptop is fine.. just the part of the LCD that has gone out unfortunately.

Try reseating the RAM modules. If that doesn't work test the RAM in another laptop. If nothing works chances are you have a faulty motherboard.

ACER PICTURE PROBLEM – MY SOLUTION

I had a similar problem, but I got a picture before it broke up and went off. The screen was backlit, but no video (screen was receiving some power).
The LCD needs a very stable voltage to work, this is provided through the LCD connector ribbon. In my case the ribbon was damaged and replaced it.
I have had no problem since.

I discovered this through trial and error; I first changed my transformer power supply and then the video inverter card.

You may find the link below helpful as it contains articles that photographically show you how to open the laptop for repairs.
