    Look around on you keyboard, see the blue secoundary stuff(look around the f1 f2 f3 ect.. area) a combonation of fn and another key controls your screen brightness so take a look around and try to find it, mine is the up and down keys some are f2 f3 some are page up and page down ect.. but If you find it and it still does not get brighter you need a new backlight or inverter so I hope this helps you (if you want me to see if I can help futher look me up athttp://www.crossloop.com/EricMitchell and just mention this post and I will help for free

It means that your monitor is not reading any data from your computer. Unplug the VGA cable from your tower. Plug it back in. See if there's progress. The best thing to do to confirm if you have a monitor or a VGA cable problem is to try and plug in a known-good monitor and see if it works. If a known-good monitor does not work, then the problem is with your video card. If the video card is integrated, then the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Would appreciate if you'd rate this if this helped.

Thanks, ArnWuLF

Check first the power saving settings from display properties.

Check if the AC charger connector is connecting properly, if the battery is charging, this means that you have a faulty inverter board.

    I think it could be a bad DC jack. I do not work with Acer notebooks, so it would be only my guess. Try to plug in the AC adapter and wiggle the plug inside the jack. Can you make LEDs to flicker by wiggling the jack? Try to press on the power button while you are wiggling the power jack. If you notice that you can start the laptop when you apply some pressure on the power plug (and power jack), then most likely you have a power jack issue.

Unplug all inputs, then power back up. The monitor hovers in a moment of hesitation -- it really wants to "power save" -- then jumps to the panicked conclusion that there's ZERO input and gives a new floating screen with color bars. After that,  plug  laptop in, the monitor listens.

    else go the desktop, right click with mouse and select properties (if it XP) then it will open Display properties --> there you need to go to Screen saver and then to power option and Disable any power off mode on/ Sleep mode. It will solve your problem.

Hi there,
If you are using vista, right click on the desktop and select "personalize" then click on "screen saver" at the bottom left click "Power options" and change the settings there.

kind regards

    this sound like a classic case of graphics driver issue, what you need to do is boot into safe mode (press F8 on boot up) once in safe mode unistall the graphics drivers and restart the pc, you should now have a visible screen, if its vista you are using it will detect and reinstall the driver for you.
    If this does not work post back ASAP

    To get into the bios restart the pc, as it is starting up hit F2 repeatedly
    why do you want to go into the bois anyway?


  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Dec 09, 2008

    going into the bios/cmos will not solve the problem, its to do with the graphic drivers

Use a power adapter then go to control panel to change the power saving options

Posted on Dec 09, 2008

  • monk3ybidzness
    monk3ybidzness Dec 09, 2008

    possible causes:

    power supply - not enough power going to the monitor/screen
    or
    graphics card - no data/signal is received by the monitor/screen
    or
    try to clear cmos/bios

    it's a laptop - the last (clearing cmos/bios) suggestion can be tried as the first two requires service.

    Appreciate the additional information.

    Accordingly on your 2nd post, you were able to view the message "power save mode" on an external monitor. Additionally, you could still see semblance of the laptop's display except that it is dark.

    Based on this, it is likely that the CCF (cold cathode florescent) lamp that serves as backlight is not turning on.

    I have to ask, did you try the force power OFF, remove battery, remove AC adapter?

Acer laptop stuck on Windows boot manager


1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

This solution may sound stupid, but it is affective. Try to press really long time (about 1-2 minutes) on the power button of the laptop. wait for it to shut down completely. Then turn it on to see what happens.

What may have caused this is an update of any sort.
