    I tried a external screen and that screen goes black as well

  • bwhardwood Feb 23, 2009

    Im not sure if it works properly or not due to the fact I cant see anything. Has good power sorce and I can here it start and run and stays at idle with black screen. When I plugged in external screen it made that screen black and shut down. Is it possible it a virus? Is all my pictures and data going to be lost? Please help

    Does it seem to be working correctly otherwise, minus the black screen of course?

    What have you tried besides the external monitor, so far?

    When you turn it on, do you get any display at all? Can you see the Acer logo? Try hooking it up to an external monitor if you have got one.

ACER PICTURE PROBLEM – MY SOLUTION

I had a similar problem, but I got a picture before it broke up and went off. The screen was backlit, but no video (screen was receiving some power).
The LCD needs a very stable voltage to work, this is provided through the LCD connector ribbon. In my case the ribbon was damaged and replaced it.
I have had no problem since.

I discovered this through trial and error; I first changed my transformer power supply and then the video inverter card.

You may find the link below helpful as it contains articles that photographically show you how to open the laptop for repairs.

It's probably the motherboard then. Your data will be fine, that's a separate portion of the laptop. You'll have to have the computer serviced by a local repair shop, they'll probably say the same thing, motherboard. Your data can be extracted a number of ways but the easiest is to just put it into an external enclosure and then extract the files to another computer.

If you're computer is less than a year old then it's covered under Acer's warranty. If not, then it's probably not worth fixing, but that all depends on you.

Were you using XP or Vista?

Goes into sleep mode will not come back on for 2 weeks or longer


It might be setup to go into sleep mode if it is left idle for a certain period of time. To change the settings click the following(I am assuming you have windows vista or windows 7):
Start,Control Panel,Power options,Choose when the computer goes to sleep(look on the left side),Then adjust the settings to what you wish by clicking the black arrow there.
Also check the "choose when to turn off the screen" in the same spot you clicked Choose when the computer goes to sleep.

The screen on my macbook pro keeps turning off instantaniously. The laptop its self is still on, though the screen just goes black.


I think your macbook is running on power save mode. This will turn your screen black (off) after few minutes of no interaction with the computer or if your PC is on idle.
