Re: screan problem

That last link is NOT for an Inverter Board, but rather for the RJ11 & RJ45 Modem jack. It appears, going through the Service Manual, that you need to purchase the whole Display Assembly. I'm a certified Compaq, HP, IBM, Toshiba and Dell PC Specialist. Should you have any other questions, need parts,, or some help of break-down/re-assembly, don't hesitate to ask. I have #'s for most all PC and Notebook Parts Vendors, so can help you out with parts, too. Just email me at: I'd be more than happy to assist you! =)

Re: screan problem

This is probably a defective inverter board or backlight. It can be repaired by a user with the right skills, patience, some tools, lots of time and the ability to risk damaging the laptop beyond economic repair. If we open it up and don?t see anything obvious then the troubleshooting process will require obtaining new, working parts to switch out. Overall you will have to make an investment in parts which many or may not pay off the end. I typically recommend that users who do not have experience working on delicate electronics seriously consider taking their laptop to their local authorized repair shop. They have the experience, tools and parts which generally translate into getting a working laptop back at minimal expense. If you decide you want to continue troubleshooting (and opening up) the laptop let us know and we can give you some general instructions how to open it up and where to get parts. Good luck and please don?t? forget to rate this posting.

My acer is black screan how to back normal

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

When connected to the internet, my screan flashes quite fast and ita s puple colour! it doesnt do it on any other programme, just when im connected to the internet!

WHat programs are running at that time? Please check using task manager. There must be a program that activates itself when internet is accessible and then present the abnormal behaviour. Suggest closing programs (end process from task manager) one by one while the screen flashes in order to determine the culprit.

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.

My dell inspiron laptop 1000 screen turns dark every few seconds. if I close the computer half way and open it,it stay bright for a few seconds and turns dark again

This is your back light on your lcd display, To prove that have a flash light handy when it goes dark point the flash light at the screen and you should see the screen and that would mean right there you got a back light going out or the inverter that powers it is going bad. Etherway if this is not your area of work you need to tech it to a computer tech local to have it repaired.

Thanks for being considerate with your ratings and feedback today.

MD96015 Monitor problem

Sounds like you may have a bad LCD backlight or inverter. When the screen is dark, take it into a dark area and see if you can see the screen dimly showing. Or, shine a flash light on the screen and see if you can make out anything showing up.
Try this and let me know what you find.
