This machine has the video card integrated into the main board, so the lose card idea is out the window. However you can check to see if the connection to the display is good by removing the button panel near the display. To remove the button panel:
1) Open the screen until you hit the stops.
2) Gently pull upwards on the right side of the panel above the keyboard.
3) Continue to pull from right to left.

Check the connector on the left side of the notebook. If that is secure then reinstall the panel and check for video output by connecting an external monitor to the connector on the back of the notebook. If you have signal your display is the likely culprit, if you don't the main board is likely the culprit. Either check online for replacements for either of these components, or send it in to Acer for maintenance.

Test computer on another monitor to eliminate graphics card problem

If it does not, check connections between card and monitor
If tight, assume an internal fault in the monitor, needs repair or replacement

Acer desktop mouse,keyboard not functioning, monitor also not wor


If there is no display on the monitor, then your computer is not sending a video signal to the monitor.
This could be caused by a bad video card or some other hardware problem. I would open the case and disconnect all the devices (hard drive, CD, etc. Leave only the CPU, memory, and video connected. You could leave the keyboard and mouse connected too.
If your computer then starts, you can start to add devices (after turning the computer off) one at a time.
If this doesn't work, then you are looking at replacing the motherboard or just the video card if that is possible.

Acer Aspire 5100 laptop's screen remains black at start-up


This is probably a hardware issue with the monitor. Just to make sure, uninstall, and reinstall the monitor's driver. If that doesn't fix it, it's a hardware issue.

You will have to either take it to a shop, or contact the manufacturer (your computer should be under warranty if you've had it for less than a year).
