After a power outage (the laptop was connected to the main) the backlight no longer works. Is there a setting for this, or is it blown? It's an Acer Aspire 5100.

    Thanks, a friend fiddled and found a setting in the power management settings that fixed it. Not quite sure how it was knocked out, but it's fine now. Thank goodness - I wouldn't want to get a new screen!

Not powering on after power outage


Hello,

Sometimes after a power outage, some power supplies can take a hit but will not provide the needed voltage to operate your pc. In this case you should replace the power supply. For future protection, connect your pc to a power strip or power source with surge protection. This will range in price from $7 to hundreds depending on how much you need to protect and your budget.

Good Luck

You definitely have a Video Card Error related.
  1. Find Where Your Graphic Card located (asuming your computer has a separate card for video .
  2. Check the connection from your display to your video card (these connections are very thin wires running all the way to the video card or the MB).
  3. If the second step is clarified then have your graphic card checked. or have *********** Board chip set checked for bios and fermware.
Mostly you have a connection problem.

How do i setup my wireless dlink so that i can connect my laptop through main computer


I'm not exactly sure as to give you the right answere as i dont have enough info on laptop and wireless modem. But in windows on your laptop ,look for SEACH FOR WIRELESS NETWORKS. On your pc when you set up your router you should have put in a password. This password you should have to use when your laptop finds your network, its as simple as putting in the password and away you go.If in doubt, contack dlink (usually toll free number) and give them a call. But remember to write things down as you might find yourself having to do it again (lost files,power outage.etc) so might be a good idea to keep a record. good luck JLS

Backlight fails after 2 mins on Sony Viao laptop. Is there a common fault? where can i source spares?


On dissasembly of the unit, having removed the mains lead from the unit and dropping out the battery, there are very few parts, just the backlight tubes which run around the periphery of the screen and a narrow Pcb at the base of the screen which is the invertor (takes a low input voltage and provides 600volts+ to drive the tube.) I obtained a replacement Invertor which resolved the fault ( cost of repair £50 and 15 minutes work.)

Take great care to ensure both the battery and the mains lead are removed pior to opening the unit as voltages around these components are in the order of 600volts when in a powered state..

Very well could have toasted you network card. If everything else works, try installing a different one (and drivers) that is known to work. MM85

My emachines monitor has no picture, hard drive is functioning properly. Monitor is black


if you do not get a screen with a LCD monitor its likely you have a inverter problem or BACKLIGHT problem. you might need to replace the LCD backlight or replace the monitor on the desktop.
check to see if the laptop can get a picture by plugging in a monitor to it, im sure theres a connection for external monitor.

theres also a FN (function key) command to switch from lcd to external monitor. always test before commiting to replacing a monitor.

The desktop, you might want to test another monitor on the desktop just to be sure the monitor is gone or dead. if you see on the monitor a OSD saying "No power or No Signal" or you can pull up the OSD(on screen display menu). then the monitor is not dead.

might be the computer even though the computer powers up doesnt always mean the computer is working.

i would check the motherboard for blown capacitors or funky smelling(burnt plastic)aroma. Make sure the computer is off before checking.

get back to us!

thanks
