Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook

ACER apire 5050 screen keeps going blank/freezing

I've an ACER Apire 5050 laptop for about 18months, which we use at home virtually every evening.
In the last week it has developed a screen problem. First it was a flicker that passed, now the screen stops responding or goes blank. only solution is to restart machine.
It's got really bad tonight so that it will only work with the screen in a particular position on desk. It seems particularly bad when using the laptop on my knee or if I move the screen position at all. if on the desk and not touching the screen at all, it works ok.
any idea what this might be ? I'm guessing a loose wire connecting keyboard to screen and am worried we will have to scrap it

Hold down the "Fn" Key and press the "F4" Key, wait a min, press the Enter key on the keyboard... Do this when it happens, the problem is the ribbon cable in the laptop that goes to the screen is loose, If you want to fix permanently, send in for repair to Acer if under warranty.

La webcam de mi acer apire one aoa150 se ve


Puede ser causado por varios motivos, te recomiendo verificar:

1. Quitaron el plastico protector de la camara? Esta tiene un plastico que debe ser removido.

2. Está correctamente instalada la camara? Por lo comun ya viene instalado los drivers. en caso de no ser así, en el CD que trae el equipo debe estar el programa para la instalacion de la camara.

3. Está ajustado el brillo de la imagen? En las utilerias de la camara debe estar la configuracion para hacer mas clara la imagen. En caso de no tener en el manual las instrucciones, puedes ajustar el brillo en el software que usa la camara, por ejemplo; en MSN puedes entrar a HERRAMIENTAS- WEBCAM - AJUSTES (o configuracion) y ahi tiene el control de brillo.

En caso de que nada te funcione te recomiendo contactar la tienda para obtener informacion de garantia.

Acer apire 3000 keeps freezing!


The first, best thing to do is to back up your data and do a system restore. Acer's have the restore function usually built into their acer system management software.

Restoring the computer will solve most issues. If you keep having issues after the restore you probably have a hardware error like a bad hard drive or bad memory.

Be sure to back up any important data as the restore will erase everything from the hard drive and set it back to the way it came from the factory

Good luck!
