If you can see some kind of display when you shine a flashlight on it at an angle, either your CCFL lamp is bad or your inverter board is bad. Neither part should be too expensive not to get it fixed.

The possible reasons is that you have turned down your brightness and contrast without realizing it, to fix this simply look for a brightness key on your keyboard and turn it up. If it is missing or did not fully work, see if you can notice any image and try to get into your Display properties, click the setting tab and go into advanced and turn up your brightness and contrast from there. If this does not work, im afraid to say you have damaged your LCD screen and this would result in your dull screen appearance. Get a computer technician to take a good look at it to see what has happened if this is the case

Hope This Helps

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    VGA MODE NOT SUPPORTED, usually will meanthat the resolution your laptop was sending to the monitor wasnt supported.

    this can be fixed with it plugged in and using the laptop display. you shoudl be able to chenge display properties and apply a different resolution to each screen.


    system not fully installed is an interesting one. does it do this all teh time when you reboot now? with or without the monitor connected?

    Acer Travelmate display very dim


    If that's the case that can be a problem with the screen itself that may need to be taken to a service center near you and they check that if needed they will replace the screen, if its still under warranty better take it back to Acer and have the screen replace..

    Hope that helps.....

    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.
