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.

Hi, try this: assuming you're running XP. right click an empty space on the desk top, left click properties, click screen saver.
click power. click all the drop down boxes and select "never"
click apply then O.K.
the other way is: control panel, open power options

One long beep probably indicates that the memory chip(s) are not inserted properly.

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.

Black screen with the upper right line -


Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture okay! the problem is in the LCD panel display of the laptop, but if symptom the same the Video Graphics Card is defective usually built into the motherboard.

My screen flashes gray then white then blue then multi color


Hook a spare monitor to the computer to make sure the video graphics board is okay, assuming everything checked out, next the video cable from the computer to the Acer monitor, if it will detach from both ends, sub another video cable. Finally if it comes down to the Acer Monitor, the video is processed on the main board that is attached behind the LCD screen that is displayed making repairs far to expensive, much cheaper to replace.

Acer Aspire E700 running Vista. After a complete shutdown either from power interruption or normal windows shutdown, will not power up, no POST, no lights on front panel, nothing, unless usb devices are...


I have never heard of such a symptom, but if there's no power it can only be one of two things. Either there is something very strange going on in the power supply, or you have a motherboard with some problem. My feeling is that it's the motherboard, though.

The power switch only sends a signal to the motherboard to turn on the power supply. I have to believe that some problem with the USB controller or the USB power on the board is interfering with the board's operation.

It would be fairly easy to substitute a known good power supply for testing. If you still have the trouble, I'd say it's time for a new motherboard.

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5920G. My problem is when the laptop is switched on it sounds like it's booting but the screen stays blank? Have you any idea what can cause this? Regards, Dan Pook...


Hello
I think your graphics card or screen is broken on your Acer Aspire 5920G, one thing you can test is to connect at external monitor to your laptop. If you dont get any picture then its your graphic card broken, if you get picture it is your screen. also try to adjust the screen light.

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.
