Acer 5620z screen going blank but motor still running


There are more than one possibility for this scenario (settings, cable, lamp):

•The display is not set as the primary or active display (such as is the case when set to view in projector-only display mode). Many laptops have either a Function key (such as F4) or a hotkey expressly set aside for presentations (usually at the top right with two other hotkeys). Newer operating Windows systems allow for changing the display mode through holding a Windows key down while pressing the [P] key.

•The monitor data cable is damaged. Sometimes, this can be tested by changing the vertical angle of the display to see if the display shows. (In this case, replace the display data cable.)

•The lamp inside/behind/above/below the display could be going out. (In this case, replace the display lamp.)

The easiest way to test & to give a temporary workaround would be to hook an external monitor to the laptop & to turn on both devices to ascertain if the video output shows on it.

If all else fails, then take it to a technician because the system board could be bad.

What caused a black screen


I had the same problem. While rebooting the laptop the screen would be on for a few seconds after it finished rebooting then the display would go black. If you looked very carefully at the screen you could see the image was there but there was no light behind the screen to make the image visible.

I removed the black plastic display bezel cover that goes around the edge of the display screen to check out the lights and wiring. I found a small magnet that belongs inside the display bezel had fallen out of it's slot in the plastic bezel and was stuck to the inverter pcb (printed cicuit board). To fix this problem I secured the magnet into it's slot inside the display bezel with a bit of glue. After fixing the problem and putting the display bezel back together the laptop worked normally.

The magnet could possibly fall out if the laptop was closed and upside down then dropped on a hard surface. Mine did not feel very secure in the mounting slot which is why I secured it with glue.

This magnet is how the laptop knows the lid is closed. When the laptop is closed the magnet is moved closer to a magnetic switch on the inverter pcb and activates the switch. The laptop thinks it is closed and shuts off the lights behind the display screen. When the magnet fell out of it's slot and stuck to the inverter it activated the magnetic switch all the time whether the laptop was open or closed. This caused the laptop to think it was closed and shut off the lights behind the dispaly screen as soon as the reboot finished.

No display on screen in Acer aspire 5830TG with GeForce 540


I agree with you, if the graphic card was bad, the external display would not work. He probably connected a non-compatible LCD. Unfortunately, replacing the LCD will cost about $100 plus labour. Is it worth it for a 6 year old laptop or should you just continue to use it ask a desktop.

ACER ASPIRE 5742z motherboard display fried can i fix this?


Unfortunately, what you are describing sounds to me as though you have permanently damaged the graphics card, as it doesn't work on an external monitor. Because they are integrated into the motherboard, you will need to replace the whole motherboard. Putting the existing motherboard into another Aspire would have the same results, there will be nothing on screen, as the damage is permanent.

Battery not charging


As you have tried to replace battery and still new battery is not getting charged in this case it seems there is hardware problem. Circuit which allows battery to charge is not working.

Getting bad display, lines down screen


Yup sounds like a typical graphic chip failure unfortunately, especially if it is also on 2nd monitor. :(

Display freaks out


There is probably a false or intermittent contact at the display end. If the problem were in the generated signals, the whole display would be affected. A problem always in the same area of a LCD display usually means either the Berg strip or (if you're lucky) the driver cable has come slightly loose.

Since you've already opened the thing, I guess warranty considerations no longer apply. In the case of the Berg strip, perhaps the best home-made remedy is to get a strip of soft silicon foam or adhesive soundproofing, and place it against the strip so the non-adhesive area, once the screen has been reassembled, presses DELICATELY the strip against the display, preventing it from losing contact again.

Another, sadder possibility is that the driver lines inside the monitor went awry (this would explay why the screen reacts to power surges). In such a case there's unfortunately no solution, not even the "display massage" that sometimes fixes "stuck" pixels.

I'd rule out the external mouse as a coincidence.
