Question about Computers & Internet
Hello, I have an Acer 3003LCi Laptop. I have a problem with the screen flickering when it's opened to certain angles. Sometimes even just putting slight pressure from the back onto the screen will alleviate the problem. I'm a computer programmer, not a hardware guy :-) Does this sound like some sort of loose connection? That's the only thing that came to my mind. Any other ideas? Thanks, Lint My Acer Travelmate screen started flickering a few mjonths ago. When it flickers very badly, sometimes it just goes black and then slowly turns to white or other types of things and I then have to a) reset it or b) if I put it on standby for a while, close the laptop, then open it and turn it on again, I may be able to see the screen. Nowadays the flickering only lessens if I open the laptop 180°. What can be about it?
The flickering screen indicates that it is a backlight problem with either a faulty inverter or inverter connection problem. The inverter is usually located at the bottom edge of the LCD screen, and may have one or two connectors (one for the video info. and one for the inverter power or a combined connector) attached to the motherboard under the case near the top edge of the keyboard near the hinges. Reseating these connectors may solve your problem.
