    Ok, so today I have had enough of this ****. :) So I decided to take appart my notebook. I removed everything like in the service manual. (You can find it via Google.) And put it together again. And check this out! The problem disappeared. (I left out a screw by the way.)

    The keyboard ribbon is made with a special procedure usingquicksilver. This is a very thin cable which can broke easy. You can find 20-30 wires on it. If one of them is damaged it's affects a group of keys. (For example in my case Y,D,N,K) These are usually in a specific and equal distance on the keyboard.
    You have to change your keyboard to solve the problem. You can fix the cable with some scotch tape. It undersets it and provides some heat insulating.

This problem solved after I sent my notebook to the service center (thanks God this happened when the warranty hadn't expired).

The guy in the service center said this is a HW problem that occurs a lot in Acer 2930Z series. So I left my notebook for 2 weeks in the service center, and they replace my BLUETOOTH CABLE in my notebook. The guy gave me a wise advice,"Do not use the bluetooth too often."

I had the same problem last week on a clients Aspire 2930. After scanning it for viruses etc, I reinstalled Vista and the problem was still there even during Vista setup.

Acer are now sending a carrier to collect it for a warranty repair.

Hope this helps
Martin :-)

My acer aspire 2930 will power on but no screen will appear not even the acer logo which normally appears straight away a dim screen just appears help please!!!


This could be a defective backlight caused by damaged CCF's (cold cathode flourescent lights, or a bad high voltage invertor in the laptop.

IF YOUR unit has a VGA connector, connect an external monitor and see if the machine is working. ALSO try hitting F8 repeatedly to see if you can get into SAFE MODE and it might display.

Try to determine if the machine is running and it is just a dead display.

Put a CD in and see if it flashes the activity light showing it is trying to read the directory from the CD.
