Hi there.
Turn the machine on and look very close at the screen, if you can see a ghost or very faint image on the screen, if you can the inverter or the inverter coil has become defective. Plug in an external monitor to rule out any problems with the laptop itself, if you get a display through the external monitor then it could be a loose connection or the inverter itself.
Post back with the results please.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Connect an external monitor to the notebook. If you have video then it may be your LCD has gone out. Sounds you just purchase the notebook it should still be under warranty. Call the manuf. and tell them your LCD has gone out. They should fix it for free. Most new notebooks/desktops come with one year warranty.

I hope this helps.

ACER ASPIRE 5610z BLACK SCREEN


You could have a defective screen - follow this to determine the fault.

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Acer Aspire 3620 Screen


Check Acer's website for a BIOS update. I've seen a LOT of laptop's screen issues been related to the power saving settings in the BIOS. Sometimes screens going black very fast and not working properly can be caused by that.

The Power Inverter could also be the problem which you wouldn't be able to repair yourself. If you purchased it at Best Buy you can take it to them and they could get that fixed for you (at a charge if there is no warranty with that).
