Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

My Acer laptop computer frequently fails to respond to a programme and I have to press the on/off button. Also a dark shadow flicks on and off and the left side of the screen. Is this a software or hardware problem, as I have an extended warranty, but was told to check out whether this is a software problem before sending the computer to Auckland.

My monitor won't pick up the computer on startup it was working fine before


MUCH MORE sinister than that!

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men...................

Just kiddin'.

How about posting the model number, so I can give more exacting information, than writing a page filled with generic one-size-fits-all information?

The model number is on the back, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

Post back in a Comment.

Hp pavilion dv7-4165dx black screen


A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,


if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.


To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.


Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard.


Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue.


Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue.


Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.


Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.


Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment.


Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.


Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.


Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.

Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.


Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective.

If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.

If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.


Hope this helps

Windows 7 does not require 4gb, that is the recommended level for windows 7 ultimate. Does this happen with any programmes or specific ones? also, do you have a seperate graphics card or is it built onto the motherboard?

Flashing the Bios is a LAST DITCH effort to resolve Hardware issues. You should NEVER flash the bios unless you are absolutely certain it's the correct bios for your computer, also NEVER flash bios from within windows..

There may however be a solution for you, Acer laptop computers with the Pheonix BIOS sometimes has a " flashback" feature, allowing you to revert to your original Bios..

You will need to contact Acer to get a Crisis Bios recovery disk from them. Or ask for further information on how exactly to recover from a bad bios flash.

We have an Acer Travelmate 4200 and the screen is too dark how do you brighten the screen??


Most laptops have a function key (F1-12) with a picture that looks like a sun. Press and hold the FN button and the appropriate Function key. You should get a "slider" to adjust the contrast and brightness..

Some laptops also come with a program to make other display adjustments. Look at the Control Panel to see if you have one of those on your list. If not, check the "Display" application on the Control Panel, and under "Settings" see if you can adjust contrast or brightness that way.
