Does external display work fine? If you have not checked, connect an external display like desktop monitor or a LED TV which has VGA connector to your laptop's vga port. You may have to use some fn keys combination to switch from laptop display to external. If external display works fine then check the display cable connecting laptop motherboard to laptop display. And also check laptop LCD/LED screen. You may have to try another with another screen in such scenario.
Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn
on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet.
If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or
moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the
power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection
to the monitor is not loose.
Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA
inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If
it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to
VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is
compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture
quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible
with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if
If the display works fine when connected to external screen via VGA connector then then the problem is either with the LCD display panel ( which consists of the display panel and inverter ) or the LCD cable that connects the LCD to the motherboard. You could try to re-seat the cable connection on the back of the LCD panel.
If you can here audio coming from the system then this means that windows is running. This is a definite problem with the LCD of the computer. It is not a problem with the video card or the motherboard. To further prove this connect your laptop to an external monitor and it is sure to work. It is likely that the lcd panel or the lcd cable needs to be replaced. Unfortunately this not something that you can fix yourself. Contact Asus or a local computer shop for assistance.
most likely inverter issue, or somewhere in between inverter and LCD, illumination bets thing to do is to take aprt the LCD frame and disconnect and reconnect all wires leading from the inverter. If that doesn't work, the replace the LCD wires and or inverter.
If your external video is working, most likely your VGA controller is good. Your laptop is using the same controller to control internal and external video. It could be two things that would cause your problem:
1. LCD VGA cable that connect your LCD to the laptop
2. Bad LCD VGA connector on the board(cold soldered joints)
3. BAD LCD panel
Any of the following repairs will require disassembling of your laptop.
so there is a picture and the computer works fine other than that this is best taking to a computer shop because its likely to be a screen problem untill then you can plug your laptop into a normal computer by pluggin the computer screen into the vga port on the back of your laptop
-toggle the laptop display using the FN keys and F5 I believe.
-lower laptop resolution to 800 x 600
-look in laptop display properties for lcd or external display settings, see if it (external crt) has to be enabled on the laptop first.
