You're working on a laptop (problem posted under desktop)

you need to activate the video-out port by:

press and hold the Fn key then press one of the function button (F1 - F12) locate the one that has a monitor icon on it

Z 5600 Acer will not power up get lines across screen or white screen or black screen and no booting up


Try plugging in an external monitor. Then reboot. That will answer your first question - "Is my monitor fried?"

Oh wait, the Acer Z5600 is an all-in-one. Does it have an external VGA port? Should have. Acer support is here: http://support.acer.com/product/default.aspx?modelId=1243

When i boot up my pc , the monitor light comes on but flashes and the screen doesnt come on for anything from 1 hour to 4 hours


Hi,
You need to establish if this is a monitor problem or a problem with the graphics card in the PC. Can you try another monitor or have you tried turning the monitor off (for a long time) separately, leaving the PC Base running, then turn monitor back on again? If it takes time to come back on while the PC is running, it is likely to be the monitor at fault.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

My Amilo A1630 laptop is not working. The screen will not come up at all. Power switch is turn on and the green light is on. Any ideas what is wrong?


To isolate the problem try this:

Plug your laptop to an external monitor using the monitor out port on the laptop. Hit the "function" key and the corresponding F key that has the LCD Screen/External Monitor icon. Usually around F6-F8 or so.

This will test if there is something wrong with the screen and if the laptop is booting up past the BIOS.

Please comment back with results.

I can't find any driver support on acers web site for my extensa 5220 as it doesn't seem to be listed in their product drop down menu. Are their any sites that cater for this type of note book?


Hello there,
Here is the direct link to your drivers. Make sure you download the drivers for the operating system you are using (either xp or vista)

Enjoy!

My monitor won't start


There must be a connection problem from monitor to pc, check the pins to see if any are bent in the plug to the pc. If it is a seperate graphics card, check that it is seated correctly in the agp (brown) slot and not come loose. Try booting in safe mode (F8) on boot and select boot Windows in safe mode(this will run pc with normal vga driver and not the graphics driver), and see if it stays on, if it does it is a graphics card driver fault, so re install.
