Half of my laptop screen is greyish and hard to read through


It seems to me you can have one of two problems;

1. Your screen is failing an you need a replacement.
2. Your video card/chip is failing

Let's hope for #1 and here's how to find out. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and transfer the video signal to that monitor. If your laptop's desktop and other video apps appear normal, then you just need a new screen.

If, however, the gray area is duplicated on the external monitor, then your video chip is failing. This can be an expensive repair out of warranty.

Best Regards,

While using my acer 4720z laptop the monitor blinks n comes with different colors n blinks again


Bad news: this is a sign of your video card or LCD failing. To check out which is failing, connect a known-good monitor to your laptop. If the color changing and blinking occurs on the second monitor- it's the video card. If it doesn't: it's the LCD.

Dell monitor and acer one laptop


Yes, you can connect. BUT, after that right click on the desktop and select Properties->Settings. There you will find two monitor icons. The left one is your Acer display while the right one is your new Dell Display. Select the right one and configure it. You should have the same resolution and color as the main Acer display to use it optimally.
