My acer aspire one netbook screen is black on right side, the left is in perfect view.


If the image is just too small for the screen then your video driver software is corrupt or no longer working. Re load the driver software.
If the image you see is only a partial image, then you have a screen driver problem and that is a problem. A new screen will be required.
Hope this helps.

Right hand third of screen missing


Connect it to another screen using the vga connection, which is the blue connector on the laptop. If it comes up the same it could be your video card. If it is fine on the other screen then it is your LCD, which might cost you around 400$

If you are confident enough to open screen bezel and take out screen , then the second strap from right of your screen has a bad connection. theses cannot be repaired but as a tempory measure some duct tape across the connections will cure it, else replace the screen.

Black screen on the right side of my acer 5630


You need to give me a few more details,is the screen blurry on one side,and brighter on the other?,two, are you using a some special graphics software that might not be ment for your computer,you should plug a monitor into your laptop to see if it gives the same affects,and press the window or function key, and one of the monitor symbols on your keyboard at the same time(,they are coloured the same as the function key),to change your main screen to a plug n play one,if the screen comes up with the same affects then it is a software problem,you might have to uninstall the software that is causing the problem,or two if is comes up perfectly,then it might be a hardware problem,you might have to bring your laptop to a pc mechanic to be degaussed,this puts a charge on your laptop screen and it costs more to do than replace one,most plug and play monitors can degauss them selves,others need to be done manually,unfortunately laptop screens have to be taken apart to be degaussed,i know its silly.if its not blurry then it cant be hardware problem.its one of your graphics settings.

Partial blackout on Screen


I have the same laptop, and though I havent had a black out problem i do have screen burn or a discoloration in the lower corners of my screen. I was told that It was due to this model's overheating issue and that I would have to replace the screen.

Partially dark screen


this sounds like a loose connection of your LCD back-light called the display inverter. squeezing, with your hand, the outer edge of the frame (NOT SCREEN) on the side affected could conform this.
