Hi there
yes its the graphic drivers that needs installing, i must also tell you that when you remove AC power from the laptop it will go into power saving mode and you will notice that the screen dims a little, this is normal and nothing to worry about

I have an acer aspire 5100 and here recently the


Could be a bad battery and/or charger/AC Adaptor/DC Connector. Try to isolate the problem by removing the battery and then plugging the laptop charger in and starting the pc up. It should boot on the AC adapter alone. If it won't boot on the AC adaptor or it flickers and flashes while on the AC adaptor, I would first suspect the AC adaptor or the DC connector on the laptop (try wiggling the power plug at the PC to try and check the connector). If it behaves while on the AC adaptor without the battery present, I would suspect the battery. Either way, you may have to replace something.

My inspiron 6000's power flickers on and off intermittently, switching between A/C & battery power. I've replaced the power cord. Any other ideas?


Try removing batt and use ac adapter alone. Check if laptop works fine also check if LED flickers still.

Try removing ac adapter and use battery alone and check if batt flickers as well.

If flickering only happens when both are connected or vice versa try this first. Update the BIOS for your laptop. Download the BIOS update from http;//support.dell.com

Flickering screen - Acer (laptop) 1690 series


You have two problems and they are separate issues.
First your battery is nearly worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and as the battery ages the charge capacity will drop. When the battery is worn out, it may not charge at all or show it is 100% charged but when you remove the AC power the laptop will shut off because the battery is dead. A new battery is required to fix this problem.

Second when you connect the AC adapter into the laptop's power socket, and the screen flickers and the charge LED also flicks, it means the power socket is faulty or the power socket has a dry solder joint connection to the motherboard. If you hold the power plug in a particular position you should notice the charge LED will stay on without flickering as well as the LCD screen.
This fault can be repaired, but it requires the laptop to be dismantled completely to access the power socket. I suggest you get a quote first.

Failed on restart, had all lights, now no lights and won't do anything!


sounds like your ac plug to the laptop might be loose you can try ans see if you can resolder it back. the other problem is your ac cord might be broken wiggle it around see if the light flickers.
