We can find out if its the Video card if you have a monitor around. There should be a VGA plug on the back of your laptop if you plug that in and turn on the PC. If you still don't see anything onscreen try pressing <FN> + and <F5> together to swap displays. If theres no display after that then you do likely have a faulty video card. If you do git a picture on the external monitor, try the display swap key combination a couple of times and see if the LCD screen comes on. If not you likely have a faulty LCD screen or a backlight that has gone bad.

If the Notebook has faulty components I would recommend taking it to a certified repair facility. In the US I know Best buy and Circuit City are authorized repair facilities.
Hope this helps
Dave

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

You can't exchange touchpads, The reason for this is the ZIF line usually has a different pinout. How ever you can fix the touch pad by cleaning the contact where it slides into the motherboard and you should be good to go. You should find all the connections right under the keyboard and they should be easy to open and clean out, make sure you re-seat them completely and if that does not work make sure you have the latest drivers for your system and the touchpad installed. If non of those help you can easily find a replacement touchpad unit off ebay as well for your MSI laptop.

Screen blank but when toggled you can see output on external monitor


sounds like the internal video card has a direct feed problem, it plays on external. while screen is hooked to external check control panel for main screen dianostics. You have to live with it untill it fails altogether. Internal video is starting to fail. time for new laptop

Bought an Acer Aspire 5535 yesterday and had screen problems, i.e went blank after a period, but not always. Took it back and got it exchanged for another 5535. Experiencing the same problem. Is there a...


The complete solution to this fault (Acer 5535 keeps crashing under vista) is to use Windows XP instead of Vista. Set up a Dual Boot so you can CHOOSE to load XP or Vista each time you turn on the laptop. I've put XP on my 5535 and it's SO much faster and seems perfectly stable now - no crashing at all.

A full video showing how to do this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdfU9TXIAd4
Once you've done this you won't have any problems with the laptop anymore.
This is a perfect solution to the crashing problem!
