If your external monitor isn't working, it may be your graphics. You could open the case and search for loose connections or components. It's difficult to say without opening the laptop. Your specs say you have integrated graphics. What kind of noises? Is it coming from the HDD? the DVD rom?

    Make sure the fan and vents are free of dust. If you can see a "ghost Image" in the screen in a very bright light it's most likely backlighting. If you get Nothing on the screen, not even a white cursor in top left of black screen . The computer boots? Do you hear sounds? You said you can load a CD?

SOURCE: Acer Ferrari 4000 power up with blank screen, no

If you cannot "press DELETE to enter setup", then it's the motherboard, or the battery, or the AC power-supply that has the problem.

Since it's likely that at least one of the battery and the power-supply are working, it's probably the motherboard (or the CPU on the motherboard) that is failing.

Take the computer to a qualified technician.

Replacing the CPU is possible, and is not very expensive.
Replacing the motherboard is possible, but is very expensive
(a few hundred dollars for a replacement motherboard, plus $100 for the technician's time to disassemble/replace/reassemble).

The only "good" news is that your files on your disk-drive probably are intact, and can be read and transferred to a new computer.

Of course, you can try to sell the "dead" computer on eBay, so that somebody else can "frankenstein" your computer with their computer, to combine two dead computers into one working one.

SOURCE: acer 9300 black screen at start, tried some things, didn't work.

bobcat915,

I have encountered this situation before myself and it was due to the frequency range and resolution that the external VGA monitor can handle. First, try dumping down your screen resolution to an 800x600 on the laptop itself. Save the setting and reboot to make sure it stays. Next connect the external monitor and reboot the system with it plugged in (power and data). See if the monitor will display anything. Note: You may also have to look at the frequency setting of your video card in the laptop in order to match it with your external monitor.

I can't imagine that a bad CMOS battery would be the issue. Does the screen on your laptop work without the external monitor plugged in?

You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

1100 ferrari acer power but no screen?


Assuming no BIOS is displayed
  • Memory could be bad
  • Motherboard could be bad
  • Backlight could be bad
  • Inverter could be bad
  • Screen could be bad


Pull the memory modules out and boot the computer if it makes it to BIOS and then beeps at you one or more of the memory modules are bad, replace one at a time if you have more and test until it breaks again then you know which to replace.


To Test the inverter and backlight hook up an external monitor and boot the computer. If it displays correctly on the monitor then you've narrowed it down to a bad screen, inverter or backlight. Backlights don't usually go out.


Remove the monitor and boot the computer. Shine a flashlight on the screen and look for a very faint image of what should be displayed. If you see one I'd start by replacing the inverter. If you don't see one the screen is bad.


If none of this worked then replace the motherboard.

Your CD is not starting as it is not configured for first boot device. I am not sure on which function should be used to get to Boot Menu however you may want to try using either F2 or F12. Then its all about changing the Boot device fromHard Drive to CD. Once Changed follow the steps mentioned below,

  • Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD drive, and then restart the computer.
  • Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  • Press 1 (One) to select windows XP and then hit enter.
  • When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the command prompt, start typing

COPY D:\i386\ntldr C:\ (Considering that D is your CD Rom Drive)
COPY D:\i386\ntdetect C:\ (a file that may also be missing)


Then rebuild the boot configuration boot.ini file by
Attrib -H -R -S C:\boot.ini (if not found skip the next line)
DEL C:\boot.ini
BootCfg /Rebuild


Once all these steps are completed make to change the boot device to hard drive from CD rom.
