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.

No power on laptop screen


Hello,
The first thing to try is to hook up an external monitor to the laptop.
If the external monitor works then it is either the LCD screen or the backlight for the LCD. If not then it is probably the video card inside the laptop.
Also check the "function" (Fn) key combinations on the keyboard, you might have shut the screen off with the Fn keys accidentally.
Hope this helps.

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!
