i know your problem. even if you change the inverter it will not work. the real problem of your notebook is vga memory or video memory. use hot air to resolder your memory. trust me!

You need to try to isolate the problem. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. Press function screen keys. If you have a picture on your external monitor then you have a video problem - most likely an inverter, although you may need a new screen, unlikely but possible.

If you have no picture then you have a system problem. Disconnect the battery and AC adapter. Remove the memory and reseat. Repower your laptop and see what happens.

No disiplay on the screen of the laptop and on the external monitor


No display on either? Does it sound like the computer completed the boot cycle? Do you hear fans running and the hard drive spinning?

What happens when you hit the power button? Do you hear any beeps or see any blinking lights? Does anything post to the screen during the boot cycle?

If the boot cycle completed and you see no display on either monitor, then your video card is bad.

My acer KAV 60 screen is not working. the hard drive boots and it charges but nothing happens on the screen. It just remains black. I did't drop it or spill liquid on and it's only a year old.


In order to check what is really not functioning. Your laptop have a video port for external monitor which is color blue often at the lower back of your lcd screen or at the side. Plug the CRT or LCD monitor to your vga(video graphics adapter) port to check if your laptop is still functioning. If there is a display on your external monitor that means you have to replace your lcd monitor. If there is no display with external monitor check your memory or ram by unplugging your memory then clean it with a hard eraser the memory pin and then put it back again and turn on your computer to test if already functioning. If the above procedure didn't work you have to bring it in a computer repair shop. Have a good day!

I have an Acer Asper 1 notebook that had some issues during a regular scan, fixed problem and had virus protection. Went to start pc it loaded a black screen and said media problem, and hard drive problem....


If there is no display, try resetting your bios or cmos. Then check by turn it on, if it's still the same check your system ram, unplug your ram and clean the pin using hard eraser then brush it using small paint brush. In case you have two ram check 1 by 1 plugging onto your dimm slot. Causes of no display are defective memory, defective motherboard chipset due to overheat and defective LCD. Have a good day!

Acer Aspire One notebook model zG5, i hear the hard drive come on, but screen is blank and the keyboard does not respond.


Hello,

connect the laptop to an external monitor, turn it on see if the monitor will display.

If the monitor displays, then it means your screen inverter or screen bulb is the cause of the laptop screen being blank.

Also if the monitor does not display anything, the maybe the graphic card is the cause of the problem.

This would involve you taking the laptop to a repairer

Take care.

Aspire Notebook 5735-4774 won't display on external CRT monitor


If the video chip on the Aspire motherboard is OK then the image on the external monitor would be OK. If not then the video/motherboard is faulty.
To gain access to data on the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. The computer will see this as an external hard drive.
Alternately -
You can put the hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Blank screen on start up on Acer Extensa 4620


Did you switch displays to the external video? Try hitting the Fn key and whichever function key at the top of the keyboard has a little TV screen icon over it at the same time.

My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open


Change the settings from the display settings panel. (Right click on the desktop and go to display settings)
You should see 2 monitors graphically represented there. 
You can make the monitor that is greyed out active by right clicking on the monitor, and selecting active.
