Have you tried updating/reinstalling the driver for the video card ? If that's windows then you would have an Application Recovery wizard option to update reinstall the drivers. Open ALL PROGRAMS > open HELP & TOOLS > open Application Recovery . Other operating systems may have something similar. This may be dependent on how old the system is too as to how easy it is to find or if it exists. You may be able also to go to Acer website put in the info model etc and download driver updates from there.

Everytime i turn on my k42j laptop, screen becomes distorted ( multiple dots with different colors) then suddenly the display just disappear ( blockout).


It seems that either the display for the laptop is going, or the video card is. Is the computer's power light still lit when the display blacks-out?

Some of alphabet is coming in form of number. pl. help.


Try this.
It stumped myself and some true experts once. We were having problems with the keyboard in a darkened room.
There is a Function ( "F" or "FN") key on the lower left of the keyboard. It's labeling is often blue in color. In low light conditions, you cannot see the blue coloring. It is used to turn a section of the keyboard into a calculator. That section will have dark blue numbers written on the keys that change function. For example the K may have a dark blue number 2 written on it. In other words, When you type the Alphabet you come up with some numbers substituted for letters and not all of the keys may function. Give it try.
Best Regards,
Mark

Hi there again.
Yes it does sound like display drivers although it could be the bios graphics controller or the graphics chip so keep an eye on the startup screen for the same thing. In the meantime right click on computer, select manage from the sub menu, then select device manager, it will generate a list of devices, click on the + icon next to display adapters, right click on one from the drop down list and select uninstall, restart the pc and let the operating system re-install the drivers automatically, this should hopefully resolve your problem.
Please keep an eye on the bios/post screen because that could be an indication of more serious issues.
I hope this sorts out the problem for you.

Kind regards and thanks for using FixYa!!

Gateway laptop 450ROG video issue when using a projector


Honestly from the information you have listed it sounds like the issue is with your projector, not your laptop. If your laptop was having display issues it would be consistent on anything it was attempting to output display to, such as your monitor.

The projector sounds like its out of focus and possibly has a bad back light in it, I would suggest contacting the manufacture for a possible resolution.
