Acer 5050 goes blank at least times a day!

I have a acer 5050 and every since i moved from IL, my acer 505o has not been working so well. It gets fuzzy, then the screen goes completly white...ALL the time. Can anyone give me advice on what i should do? or can someone help me on getting out of that mode when it does turn white? thank you all..also, my computer is no longer under warranty. I had it for almost 3 years, btw... :(

    I have the same problem, put the computer to sleep by either pressing the power button momentarily or close and re-open the display and wake the computer by pressing a key on the keyboard. Not a fix but a workaround.

Acer 5050-5554, computer will start but blank screen. Try hard restart but no go. Tried to flash the bios but nothing. Anyother recommendations

Could be a dead screen or bad screen connection.

Try connecting it to a slave screen using the VGA connector and "Fn" keys. If that doesn't work you graphics card/chip is at fault.

If it does work its a screen problem, you could remove all power sources and try to get at the screen connectors. Usually under a panel between the keyboard and screen hinges. Be careful, they're usually clipped and screwed in, hard to move and easy to break.

Look for your screen and inverter connectors, ribbon connectors with a wide narrow plug, make sure they're home and good. If not you've possibly found the fault.

If they are home and good, you've probably got a screen or inverter fault. Time to get a tech.

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank

Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.

ACER apire 5050 screen keeps going blank/freezing

Hold down the "Fn" Key and press the "F4" Key, wait a min, press the Enter key on the keyboard... Do this when it happens, the problem is the ribbon cable in the laptop that goes to the screen is loose, If you want to fix permanently, send in for repair to Acer if under warranty.

Check disc makes the screen go blank

The disc check stopping and going to a blank screen, indicates a bad sector in the hard drive, and the drive will need replaced. If you can still use the machine by skipping the check disc, then you need to back up any files that you want to keep, eventually the hard drive will fail completely, if it hasn't already.
