Acer Travelmate screen, no image, just a slight glow

My Acer Travel Mate 290 got dropped by a Porter at a Hotel in Rome, now the screen has a slight glow but no image.I took it to a place the Hotel recommended, the guy said he had no speedy access to parts but could move all my memory to a new machine, which I purchased out of necessity as I was leaving Rome the next day and needed to be able to work.I'm now back home in melbourne and all the techs I know seem to be on holidays. The guy in Rome said something (poor english) about a card being broken, but I couldn't work out what he might have meant.Any suggestions
Cheers David

Hello!
I was very impressed by Once In Rome travel company's personal service and follow through. During the planning process, my agent spent considerable time (at his off hours) discussing our objectives, our personal needs (and young son), and a variety of accommodation / activity options. Once In Rome travel company worked with our requests and provided an itinerary that was reasonable in terms of logistics while within initial budget; we later requested upgrades and they were able to make reservations despite limited supply of rooms at the hotels.
Here is their website address if you are interested.

The card he was referring to is the video card. Since this is a laptop you probably are not able to replace the video card. Most of the cards are integrated into the motherboard. Since the computer was dropped it would be hard to belive that this is the problem. If there is any chance of fixing this it will have to be done by a pro unless you are able to replace the board yourself.

Bad screen flicker in certain positions on my travel mate 5330 screen, can I cure or do I replace?


I understood your problem....sometimes it cause due to if your laptop running on direct charger i mean without battery....best solution is use power regulator.....

Or if further problem occurs then you should replace your screen by opening the back case and follow steps...

1 ) open motherboard cabinet here you will find socket which contains you screen's pin disconnect it from that socket.

2 )then replace your screen...

3 ) refit back case

We have and acer travel mate laptop and are wondering how to change the settings if it was set to another screen because every time we plug in a cd outlet it causes the screen to go blank because it thinks...


Right-mouse click anywhere on your laptop's "wallpaper".
Click Properties.
Click Settings.
Does the image show ONE or TWO displays?
If so, reset the laptop's "internal" screen as the "primary" monitor,
and disable "extend my desktop" onto the "secondary" monitor.
Click OK.

I have a acer travelmate 290 and when i push the power button he start and right after this the processor stop (wont boot) and the light of the cd at the top of keyboard stay open please help me...


It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps

When i open up my acer aspire 3620 the screen stays black. I tried to toggle with the fn and f5 keys and i tried to make it brighter but neither worked


Can you see a dim image at all? If you can see the image slightly probably a bad inverter board.

Try to use and external monitor to see if you get an image. If no go probably bad screen or motherboard. Would have to take it somewhere to be diagnosed by a technician.

Hope this helps!
