I have the exact same model, a 5610Z, and I have run up against just about every problem you can think of. There may be a simple solution, or may be more complex. The simple solution may be too obvious to think of, so make sure this isn't the culprit before you move forward.

When you open the laptop up, there is a little rubber stick that protrudes up on near the back of the strip behind the keyboard, to the left of the power button. If you can't see it (because it blends in), put your index finger on the power button, and slide it to the left. You should hit the rubber stick. When you close the top, it pushes this stick down which tells the screen to power off, even though the computer may still be on. Is it jammed? Is the stick broken or pushed in? If so, the screen will not light or will power off and stay off, even if the computer is working just fine.

That's the obvious fix. The second problem I have encountered involved a very malicious virus that took over my screen. Though the screen was completely black, there was still some light behind it. Is there any light? By light, I mean, is it lit slightly, like when you first turn it on? Or is it black like the power cord is disconnected AND the battery is not in? If it's lit, you may have a virus that has hijacked your desktop, and you need to have it removed right away.

You may need to hook the screen up to another monitor or LCD TV to see if it's a screen issue or the computer. If you can hook up the computer to another screen and see everything, it's the light in your laptop, and it needs to be replaced (hope you had a warranty 'cause it's a pain). If you can't see anything on either screen, it's a software issue. I'd suggest finding someone who can take the harddrive out of its casing, hook it up to another computer, and scan to fix for issues, and then run a strong antivirus suite on it.

Hope that helps a little. There are other issues it may be, but those are most common.

If the laptop is still running, the video card or the backlight could be the culprit. To see if its the backlight, this might work... Get a LED flashlight. The kind with a few lights in them. Not the bar of lights or the spotlights. Now when the screen goes blank again, shine the flashlight at the screen at every angle you can think of. See if you can still see the image of what you were doing. If you can, it is the backlight. If you or someone you know is good with a soldering iron and fixing digital electronics you might have hope. Google backlight replacement for LCD displays. If you don't want to do that, try adjusting the backlight settings with the acer power management.

Pc going to sleep in the middle of downloads


Go into your power settings and disable sleep or hibernate mode. It's OK to have the screen blank after a period of time. Make sure you make this setting under AC power and ensure the laptop is plugged in to wall socket.

My display screen goes on and off


I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.

Toshiba a135 laptop screen goes blank during battery use. Only way to recover is to put the laptop to sleep blinking orange and then restart. This action keeps the screen on. Could this be a bios problem?...


It's probably not a BIOS problem.

You should go to Control Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Power Options --> Change plan settings --> change advanced plan settings.

Try configuring the setting for "Plugged in" and "On Battery" to be the same. That way your laptop won't go through wierd configurations when you unplug.

Try cleaning your computer with compressed air too.

Screen goes blank every 30 second, have to hit the


go to control panel > power options. Turn off hibernate and sleep mode, change all settings to never sleep and change the setting for "when closing the lid" to "do nothing" sleep mode, hibernation can destroy the registry on these laptops, you are better off turning that garbage off and just letting it run.

Laptop apprears to go into sleep mode while I'm using it


To my knowledge it could be hibernate mode for laptops to save battery life when not plugged into the wall, try pressing the power button, my Compaq did that too. Also don't hold down the power button as after 5 seconds it just shuts off the laptop, unless you wanna do that.

Laptop HP Compaq nx9420 Screen goes Blank


From the Symptom you described, it seems like the thin video cable's connector is loose and is barely connected to the video adapter on the motherboard. You won't be able to tell until you remove the Keyboard and/or the Palmrest to check it. Also, there is a slim possibility that the Laptop has knocked something loose and is going into sleep mode. Normally, a Laptop user can configure it to go into Sleep mode or 'Hibernate'. These settings can be found in the Control Panel under 'Power Settings'. http://www.Computer-Repair-Today.com
