Question about Acer Aspire 3100-1405 Notebook

2 Answers

Screen showing funny lines and colors.

The lcd screen shows funny lines and colors. The display comes up halfway like for instance the acer logo at the beginning tries to show up and it comes up in funny lines.

My question is is it the lcd or inverter board. And if the lcd is it worth fixing. I have found the lcd at around $80 on ebay.

Also labor isnt an issue because i know how to replace laptop lcd screens.

That would be the screen itself that needs replaced, if you needed the inverter board you screen would be dark and hardly visable

Acer laptop display goes off after some second


Try booting into safe mode. Chances are that you have set the screen resolution and refresh rate to some value that the LCD cannot handle. That is why it works until Windows takes over. Once you are in Safe Mode you can get things under control.

Acer is going straight to a black screen after the acer logo in startup....it just shows a tiny blinking line. It goes no farther. I need help fast


Apparently your Acer cannot find the operating system. As soon as the Acer logo comes up, there should appear in one of the bottom corners "F" & a number should appear. Immediately start pressing that F number (top row of keyboard). This should take you to a boot screen. Scroll down to boot sequence. Hit enter. Make sure boot-up sequence is CD or floppy drive first, second should be HDD, then escape. Restart computer. Should then boot off CD drive. I am assuming you have an operating system (XP, windows, etc.). Let me know if this doesn't work.

Internally cracked LCD display


If the screen is cracked, it will branch out like a spider's web with black margins showing. The whole LCD display will need to be replaced, go to www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to screen and check price listings.

Vertical strip of flashing horizontal lines on Acer Aspire 7551G screen


More than likely it's the lcd screen and will have to be replaced. I could be the video card, but most likely the lcd screen especially when you can put pressure on the screen and cause changes. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then the problem is with your lcd screen and the video card is ok. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your lcd screen then the problem is with your video card inside the computer.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Once you narrow it down to the lcd screen as being the problem you might try taking the lcd screen apart to reseat the lcd cable on the back at the top of the lcd. Just unplug it and plug it back into the connector. You can also try doing the same where the lcd cable plugs into the motherboard. Just pull it out and put it back.

Screen is black, shows no image. Sometimes it flicks and sometimes presents a lot of horizontal colored lines. Once or twice the screen worked for a couple of seconds, saw the windows' logo and then it...


HI,
Do a power drain, this may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im Not really sure how it affects the display of the computer but this method usually fix such problem like that, First, removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter the press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds then connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on, if nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...
