    None of the keys will bring it back out of the blank screen, only way is to hold in the power button and it will eventually turn off. Battery charge is saying 93%.I dont seem to have those control panel options you mention its running on linux lite which seems pretty basic

    Check in teh control panel, power options to see how the 'running on battery' settings are set. It might be that it's set to shut the monitor off after a few minutes, but it should come back when you press a key. 

    So, I'm thinking it's really your battery. Can you confirm the battery  is at 100% working order?

Honeywell Chronotherm iv Plus power cuts on and off


There's a trouble shooting guide here, you need to check for the presence of 24V when it goes blank, and trace back to where it's disappearing (I assume it is losing the 24v, if not you'll need to go through the installer setup or read on...
My first thought would be to check the wiring which has been touched last if it started doing that after you had coil replaced.
As an aside I'm not sure which model you have but if it has batteries you should replace them (I don't think it does have batteries but not seen a model iv so I'm unsure)

My computer was working fine last night. When I was online, the dogs came running thru the room and pulled the cord out, from the wall AND the netbook. I closed the computer and this morning, nothing. ...


Try and take the battery out and leave the machine connected to the AC power and see if it will boot up without the battery. You may have shorted the battery out .

My Acer Aspire one D250-1938 shows a blank screen only. Maybe it somehow stuck in hibernation mode. Have forced shutdown and restarted, tried F5, F6, F7, but still no screen. Any suggestions?


Try remove the battery, let it for 30 minutes without it, then plug it again the battery, then turn it on.

If still won't work, remove again the battery, wait till 30 minutes, the plug the charger, don't use the battery yet, then turn it on.If it works, you can plug in the battery again.

Screen flickers on Acer Aspire A150 Netbook


Hello,

It really sounds like you have a short in the ac adapter. Laptops dim the backlight on the screen when on battery power and go full brightness when on AC. I think your adapter is going on and off. When it is on the screen is on full and when it goes off the screen dims down a bit. You could have a bad adapter, most likely, or a bad charging jack in your laptop. Check the adapter first, just use a multimeter set to voltage. Read lead goes to the center pin and black lead goes to the outside metal contact, you should get a reading of 18 to about 26 volts. Move the wire around near the plug that you are holding and keep checking the readout. I think you will find the voltage dropping as you move the wire.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

Laptop Screen goes blank


Are you running on battery or AC? Try using the power cord, remove the battery and see if it continues. I have seen a battery that is on its last legs do some weird things to a computer. Also, check your power management setting. Control panel, power, and set the computer to "always on" just to see if it could be a power management setting. If none of this works, i would back up all your files, and try to reload win xp from scratch.

Screen goes blank when on battery power


Two possibilities: The display is a power hog. It's possible that the battery is failing, and has enough power to run the PC, but not the PC AND display at the same time. You would need to replace the battery, in this case. Or, in Control Panel, in Performance and Maintenance, in Power Options, there should be settings somewhere for the display when on battery or AC power. Make sure that the one for Battery doesn';t turn the display off after 0 minutes.

My Acer Aspire one won't turn on.


I also have this problem with my Acer netbook.  I have only had it for 4 months and am in Turkey on an extended break at the moment.  I have taken the netbook to a dealer here and have been told the problem is the motherboard, verified by Acer themselves.  I am not happy with this as the netbook was not cheap and there appears to be a few Acer models with the same problem
