Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
I just bought this Latitude 8100 off EBay. It is refurbished. The first week I had it, it worked great and I was very pleased. Now, the monitor goes black at random. Sometimes I could move the monitor up and down and it would come back. Sometimes I could barely close the monitor and mess with the mouse and it would come on. Today it worked great and did it only once. I turned it off when I went somewhere and now cant get the screen on at all. The only thing different after the first week was updating Windows. Did this do anything? I can boot in safe mode and the monitor works fine. I am a novice, so please any advice use "computer fixing for dummies" Thank you for any help
This sounds like the video cable might be loose. Unfortunately, this means partially disassembling the computer to fix it.
This is not really hard to do--and unless there is a warranty with the machine, I think you'll have to do it. I'll give you the link to help you with the task. I'm thinking this is a Latitude 810, not 8100.
Just download the manual and it will show you how to do it.
