Acer 3100 screen wont turn on.

I have an Acer 3100 Aspire laptop. about a week ago i powerd down the system and closed it up. placed it on my desk for the night. the next day went to turn it on, and the rest of the computer was working fine, although the screen was still black. like no power was getting to it. it had just had windows XP SP3 reinstalled on it, maybe 3 weeks before and has been shutdown every once and a while. i don't know what would cause this problem?

    could it have been over heated and fried the video card? it was resting on my pillow for a few hours running with the monitor shut.

Have you tried hooking an external monitor to the system? If that works you may have accidently switched the screen to an outside monitor. Or you could have a bad connection. Try starting in safe mode and see if it works.

Acer Aspire One Screen Wont Work!!


try hooking it up to an external monitor using a VGA cable. If you see something on the external monitor, then it's the screen that's bad, if you still see nothing, then it's more than likely the video card.

If the computer is only a couple weeks old, you need to cantact Acer for technical support under the warranty.

Acer Aspire 9303WSMi - 17" LCD Screen is showing coloured static..


More like the LCD Inverter Board..a loose connection would not cause that, unless you pulled the video cable by openening and closing the lid, but again that too is highly unlikely..

Acer Aspire 3100 boot up problem


unless it is something more serious, first keep pressing F8 when you turn on the notebook and it should enter safe mode. When in safe mode select the operating system that is highlighted and then a screen will appear with options, one being 'Last Known good Configuration', highlight this and press enter. The system will reboot and start again in windows as normal hopefully. If you are not able to get a screen showing in safe mode there is something more serious wrong and it could be hard drive fault or motherboard, but if you can see the disc drive light flickering the system is loading and you may have a graphical fault.
