Aspire 5050 laptop monitor displays red sand like appearance
I have an Aspire 5050 laptop monitor that displays red sand-like appearance to photographs and website pictures. The computer works fine, but the pictures and photographs are distorted in appearance. I connected the laptop to an external monitor and the pictures/photos are crystal clear. What could the problem be? Aprrox how much money would it cost to fix this problem? Help

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

put and external monitor and if fail remains then your gpu is damaged, if monitor goes good then your screen is damage or the video cable, so in that case will require a technician to fix it. good luck

Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.
If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
Do you hear any boot up noises from the laptop?
Does it appear to be working as normal, but without a picture - sometimes you may know this because you hear the XP / Vista logon sound.
It could be a backlight or inverter problem.
If you look side on to the screen you might see a faint image.
