    Thank you very much for your comment. I have replugged it in several times and it still does not work.

    Additional information:

    My previous LCD was a WSXGA+ but I bought a WXGA LCD. Does that affect it in anyway? The cable also says WSXGA (not WSXGA +) but fits perfectly with the WXGA LCD and I have also seen cables sold as WXGA and WSXGA cables. Thank you very much for your help.

    Sorry I'm such an idiot it's a WXGA+ not a WXGA

    I am currently running windows XP and have a Go 7800 GTX graphics card. I downgraded my cracked wsxga+ screen to a wxga+. No matter what i do with the resolution, dpi, refresh rate, the image on my screen it stretched out past my actual veiw. The bottom start bar is cutt off and the right of the screen is aswell. Is it even possible to downgrade like this? The new screen is running on a wsxga cable. Thank you so much for your help!

    Yes I have tried downloading new graphics drivers but to no avail. Tried changing to every resolution setting possible including the one from the link you have sent me.

    I bought the LCD from an ebay shop and he claims to receive 500 emails a day and he can't possibly reply to all of them.

    it sounds like the video ribbon isnt plugged all the way in. Make sure the ribbon is plugged in and locked in place.

    Have you tried to download updated graphics drivers after you installed the new screens?

    I think what you might have to do is contact the manufacturer and see if there are any display settings that need to be changed or any new drivers like i suggested earlier

I want to connect my HP6530b to my LCD tv. Toshiba 24PB1T Both have vga connectors. I am running Win XP Pro Is there a key combination on the laptop to enable this? Thanks

To display on external device ( such as: LCD Projector, LCD Monitor .. ) you need to tell the laptop to display on external device.

How to do that .. Just press Fn and F5,

In many cases, you need to press those keys more than once ( 3 times maximum ) to display on the external display, or both, or just the main screen.

Some times ( F1 or F3 ) instead of (F5).

Please, Tell us your results.
Good Luck

My laptop screen doesnt work, I'm using a remote screen which only works when Win XP fires up. I want to know how to negate the password on my HDD so it won't keep asking for it when i boot up on a blank...

Windows is treating the "internal" screen as separate from your "external" screen,
i.e., you've seen computer-geeks with two side-by-side screens, with the Windows Desktop
spanning both screens. With a bit of "tuning", you can nominate the "external" screen as the "primary" screen, and thus see the Windows Desktop (which currently is showing on the "internal" screen). Or, for about $100 plus $60 labour, replace the LCD screen on your laptop with a "pre-owned" LCD screen.

It indeed is a fairly easy repair in case of your Acer. However you will need a replacement screen which would cost a lot if you order it new. You might be better off searching ebay for a broken "donor" laptop (make sure it's exactly the same model, as even similar models with same screen dimensions might have different connectors or inverters - I learned the hard way ;)

Good luck,

Flickering screen on startup

Sounds like hardware. Several possibilities come immediately to mind:

1) Backlight is going bad. (It's a fluorescent light).
2) Bad inverter
3) Loose or bad cable in laptop hinge

If the picture is OK using an external monitor, it's probably one of those three.

I've used these guys before for screen repair: Unknown document title.
