Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I borrowed my Zinox computer to a friend and he returns the computer it was working good but all of a sudden i saw the screen lights reduced till it was absolutely dark. I figured out that i can see through it with the help of a strong touch light. I once restarted the system, after the processor Pentium M shows up, I press the alt and insert keys, and the light returns but after about 2 hours of browsing the lights reduced again till was completely dark. I still have to use a touch light to view the contents on the screen. Also i've formatted it several times including changing to Ubuntu linox from XP, but it's still the same, i still have to use the battery.
The problem you describe is a failing or faulty inverter board, this is located just under the screen behind the plastic surround.
This is a common problem across all makes and models of laptops and some LCD monitors.
If your machine is covered by the manufacturers warranty, take advantage and send the laptop to be repaired free.
If your out of warranty you will have to take the laptop to a PC technician for repair, it should not cost that much for that type of repair.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
