    Right Click on a clear spot on your desktop.

    Choose Personalize.

    From the new list, choose Display Settings.

    Everything here should look familiar.

    it seems you need to re-install the graphics divers. acer's are known to do this.



    Another experince i had was to hook it up to the tv device and then bootup your laptop. 99% fix.



    Please try and let me know if this worked. Have a great day :)

Addition to previous post: You can also try Safe Mode to correct your video issues, too. Restart your computer or turn it on. Count to three, then start rapidly tapping the F8 key on the keyboard. Choose Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking. Let it load up. Try info from previous post in Safe Mode.

I cant install windows xp on my presario CQ40-313TU, what should i do?


If the laptop has a Vista sticker on its base, then the BIOS is programmed to accept Vista and only Vista. The only way to install XP on that machine is if HP has a BIOS update for that model in their support files. If they do, download the BIOS file and install it. Reboot and if the machine boots up and stabilizes, shut down, insert the XP installation key and reboot.

Unistall webcam driver and reboot unit


Hi nuryani86

It means uninstall the camera software from Control Panel > Add/Remove Program (XP)

or Control Panel > Programs and Features (Vista)

Reboot the Unit means do a Restart from the Shut Down menu. Shutting down then booting back up will do the same thing.

Does this help?

Acer Aspire 5052 nothing on LCD


If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem.
But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.

Blank/black screen at power on


This is hopefully a possible fix. I have encountered a similar problem with windows xp and vista. the fix I found that will eliviate this problem and a startup-reboot-startup-reboot... If you have your original windows (xp or vista) CD lounch it like you would do to do a system install. As the installation starts it will show ask you if you would like to do a recovery using the recovery console, just press ESC and go on. Press the F8 to accept the license. If Windows is not completly broke, it will find the original installation on your hard drie. It will ask if you want to repair. Press the R key and windows will reinstall your operating system, without destroying your software or data. After it is done the system will go to the windows startup screen. You will need your windows product key located on your machine or on the original software packaging.
I hope this will fix your problem.

How reboot my satallite pro laptop


To reboot a windows computer with Windows XP, click the Start button in the lower left corner, then click Shutdown, then Shutdown again in the popup box.

For a Windows Vista machine, click the windows Orb in the lower left corner, then the small arrow next to the lock on the bottom right of the start menu then click shutdown.

If you need to manually power off, hold the power button down for 5-10 seconds until the computer itself shuts off. This is only for when traditional methods do not work.
