Question about Acer Aspire E700 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Picture does not fill Screen

I have an Acer Aspire E700 PC connected to an HP w2216 Monitor.
It's been working okay for some time but suddenly the MS Vista picture moved over to the right leaving an 80 mm. blank gap on the left.
This is now permanent. It cannot be fixed using the Monitor controls or the Software. When the computer is first turned on the whole screen is filled but shrinks as soon as Vista kicks in. Could this be a Display Driver problem? Any help would be appreciated.

    Video Driver issue, for sure is checkpoint #1. hop over to the Acer website, they SHOULD have a Vista Update.



    Checkpoint #2: see if there's a specific monitor driver at support.hp.com



    Checkpoint #3: see if you can backtrack to when the problem started, you might be able to recover from the date (rollback).



    LEAP OF FAITH: something to sniff out... I don't personally have Vista, BUT see if there's a setting for ASPECT RATIO under Video Properties or somewhere related.



    We'll leave the question open.... someone might find this and know what to do, but these are my learn-ed suggestions. Best of luck!

It is displays fine up unto the point where Vista loads, then it must only happen when Vista loads the display driver. I would go with your initial assumption and reinstall the display driver.

My Acer Aspire E700 will not start up. When I press the power button, you can hear it begin to start but then nothing. Almost like a car trying to turn over is the only way to discribe it.


you could have a bad video chip. Failure to POST could mean anything, but most times it's a video chip. Still, you can try re-seating your ram chips, re-seating your CPU, and re-seating the add-on cards that you may have.

Aspire one black screen problem


Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture okay! the inverter board just below the laptop screen is defective, "more than likely" or the backlight behind the display is faulty, but if both show the same symptom it is the video graphics card normally built into the motherboard.

Acer aspire one will not work.


Hi,

If you get a post screen with Acer written on it at startup, and the screen turns off when loading the system (Windows or Linux), then you need to reinstall the system using an external USB cd unit and the recovery disk that was provided with your Acer.

If instead the display has no screen at all , try connecting an external monitor to test the laptop.

If you get picture on external monitor, then the Aspire One has a faulty LCD ribbon cable or a faulty LCD display or inverter.

If you get no picture on external screen , then you have a faulty motherboard, possibly faulty video chipset on motherboard.

In any case check your Acer One warranty, all the faults listed are covered by Acer warranty for one year.
Contact Acer at the number listed on documentation to have the computer repaired.

New Acer Aspire E700 does not load-up


Does your BIOS POST runs then you might be having a Disk Booting Problem, If you dont see your BIOS POST Screen, then check if you can hear any beep sounds, If you hear beep sounds check the ram whether it is properly inserted in the ram slot or the ram might be faulty.(You may have to change the Ram). If you dont hear any beep, check whether the buzzer(Speaker in the CPU) is working, If buzzers were working fine before, then you might be having problems with your mother board or processor. If you know how to work on such problem try reinstalling the processor, ram etc in the cpu . Otherwise call a service engineer to have the job done.
