When the laptop is turned on, the screen rolls & flickers. I can press on the sides & it stops.
Welcome to FixYa.com!
Sorry to hear what's happening to your laptop. I would lke to ask you to follow a few steps to check and see if this is a faulty display or not. Please follow the following steps:
1. Turn the laptop off
2. Unplug the AC adapter (if connected) and remove the battery
3. Press & hold the power button for 40 seconds w/o the battery installed or the AC adapter plugged in
4. Let go of the power button, reconnect the AC adapter and put the battery aside for the meantime
5. Turn the laptop on by pressing the power button and the second you turn the laptop on, tap F2 several times to load the laptop's BIOS.
What is a BIOS? This is a special screen that let's you make changes to your laptop's motherboard. Please do not wander around as it may cause the more problems if you are not sure of what you are doing.
The reason why we went here is to see if we can still recreate the same issue i.e. the screen rolls & flickers.
If it still rolls & flickers, I'm afraid you need to contact Acer to have your computer sent to Depot or serviced.
