Question about Computers & Internet
First off i have to say this is my third post becuase in the other ones people just post a solution and they never talk back again, i cant even tell them what happened after i did what they said.
Ok so i posted a thread asking where i can find the drivers for my laptop.
someone told me the site URL and i was very happy cuz now i can update all my drivers.
So the first thing i did was i download the new Update for my laptop from the acer site and i unzipped and click on flash.exe something like that
It flashed the New bios to my laptop and then it asked me to shutdown my laptop and turn it back on.
I did so
and when i turned my laptop on everything seemed like it was going fine all the loading lights were working and i cud hear all the fans and hardrive but i noticed that my screen hasnt turned on.
So then i shutdown the laptop and tried again and everything was fine again and my screen was turning on.
I know that everything works cuz when i put a cd in it reads with but i dont know how to acces the cd or the bios cuz i cant see the screen,
So how do i fix this without having to send it to Acer
It's my understanding from your post that you have updated your BIOS and now the computer is not displaying anything on screen.
Remove AC power and the battery from the laptop. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Return just the AC power and turn the laptop on to see if it boots up.
If it does let it boot into Windows and then shut down the laptop. Remove AC power and insert the battery and then AC power and turn the laptop on.
Hopefully the computer will boot and your problem will be resolved.

Absolutely...my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
after you turn it on and it's up and running, try changing the display with the function keys ( my laptop is Fn F5, yours will probably be different) press both keys then wait several seconds, if nothing happens, do it again and wait, and again and wait, up to five times, heck even ten times. Email me and let me know. I'll label this as a solution, and you can rate it after we get it figured out. I'll keep in touch, not as often in the evenings, but I'll do what I can. I'm here for ya, man.
