Acer aspire sone notebook and it was stepped on the computer power comes on and off but the screen is messed up


Hi,

You'll need a new screen at least.

Have you tried connecting it to an external monitor and seeing if it shows a picture?

If it shows a picture, the chances are that only the screen will need to be replaced.

You need a male to male VGA cable long enough to reach from your laptop's location to the rear of your TV. Connect this cable to the "PC Input" on your TV and the "VGA out" on your laptop. Select "PC Input" on your TV's remote and you should see your laptop screen. Your resolution will probably drop down, but this is normal as it is a bigger screen than the laptop expects to see. If you get "No Input" message on your TV, try using the "Fn" button together with whatever function button shows a picture of two monitors separated by a slash. This should switch the screen to the TV.

Computer on with a black screen


Sounds like the backlight or the inverter that runs the backlight in the screen is faulty. You can connect it to an ordinary external monitor which should show the picture correctly as long as there is nothing else wrong.

There should be a socket on the left hand side I think with 15 pin holes, thats the monitor connector. If it does work ok then you will need to take the laptop to a technician to replace the faulty part/s in the screen.

If the computer is able to see wireless signals but is unable to connect, it is most likely an issue with the card, which unfortunately is internal. It could just be the driver - go to support.dell.com, punch in your service tag and download the wireless driver for your PC and install it. If that does not work, reboot your wireless router. If that still does not work, it's the hardware and cheapest option is to a get USB wifi adapter.
