There are two possible reasons either it could be the problem with the graphics card or monitor. To check that.. While this problem occurs. Just press the menu buttons on the monitor, if this horizontal lines and different colors are shown on the menu also then its the problem of monitor else with the graphics card or motherboard. Give it to the nearest service center. before that just remove the graphics card,wipe the card and slot with a clean cloth and install the same n check.. Please rank me ShaC

Laptop has jumbled horizontal muli-colored lines flickering and rolling, can't see screen


You should try to connect a VGA monitor to your laptop and see what happens. It sounds like a video card failure, and often the hdmi and the VGA are powered by different graphics chips.
If it works with a VGA monitor, try to install a new driver for your graphics card. Otherwise, try a system restore. That often solves your problem.
If a restoration doesn't help, your graphics card is probably broken. Get a new laptop. Avoid Acer :)

Most Acer laptop graphics cards are not upgradeable. In fact most laptop graphics cards are not upgradeable in general. Usually if it does not say that you can upgrade then it can not be replaced or upgraded, however I would give Acer a call and see if they can do anything for you especially if it's under warranty.

Corrupt portable drive


Hi,
I had the same problem with my WD passport. Most of the folders displayed wierd characters and couldn't access those folders. Thanks to Zero Assumption Recovery software, I had successfully recovered all my files. Check this link on how it works:

If your hard drive is detected by your computer you can use this software for data recovery.

Computer display jumbled and unreadable


From what you describe, I'd suspect the Graphics processor, or even the motherboard as a source of the problem if the monitor works on a different system normally (Best way to check the monitor is a known good video source)

If it is the system, and the system is 8 years old, I'd recommend replacing the system rather than attempting to fix it. Trying to fix GOOD parts for an obsolete system is difficult at bst and oftern can be expensive. Often you can find a low end NEW system (One that is like 20 times faster than the failing system) for less than $300

Display Problem


First things is to see if the problem is

  1. memory related(these all in one units have a problem that way.)
  2. Run everesthome and update chipset<NORTHBRIDGE>Google the northbridge for updates.
  3. nVidia GeForce FX Go5700 problem.Make sure all updates for graphic drivers have been installed, then attach an external monitor, the unit should support svga/dvi/s-video. Your graphics card has 128MB dedicated so if the external display responds the same way as internal monitor it's the video card or chipset.
