Blank display

Could be hard drive crash , could be graphics chip failure , could be power supply failure............................

too vague description :

1. does screen show ANYTHING during boot attempt ?
2. can you hear hard drive or heatsink fan spin on boot ?
3. do you get keyboard LED's to light up on boot ?

If NO on 1,2,3, then power supply is toast . get new one........
If No , Yes , Yes , then graphics chip dead . Try external VGA->VGA output to other monitor , see if that works.
If Yes , Yes , Yes , but not booting then hard drive is toast , try replacing it and re-install windows .

I have an e-machine D730Z..the power is on but doesnt display anything in the monitor. how could i possibly trobuleshoot ds kind of problem?

basically to troubleshoot a display failure on your laptop follow the procedures below.u need a star screw driver to help you take the laptop apart.
1.get to the bottom of the laptop and take off the memory bay cover.clean the metallic side of the memory and insert it back into the memory slot.power on the laptop and check if problem is solved,if not
2.connect your laptop to an external monitor and power on the laptop, if problem persist
3.then there is a likelihood of it being either the video graphic array(VGA) or the bios chip needs an update depending on the processor of your laptop.
4.if your laptop comes with an AMD processor then I'm certain it a VGA problem
5.but if your processor is the INTEL type then you have to flash or update your firmware bios chip via hardware or can either change the bios chip or flash it.
6.a floppy or a pen drive will be needed to make a bootable bios flash software. solve a VGA problem u need to take it to a professional technician to warm the VGA chipset in order to get contact with the motherboard.better still if you have a hot air device you can take your laptop apart and warm the VGA chipset on the motherboard.afterwards exerting a little pressure with a piece of cloth on the VGA chipset to make it have contact with the motherboard.

Video display from VGA output is intermittent. Video not displaying on the next restart. Is this hardware malfunction or corrupted driver?

try starting in safe mode
to do this, restart your computer and keep pressing F8 until a screen pops up
if problem persists, it is most likely a hardware failure.

1 long beep 2 short beeps

1 long 2 short is video failure, I'm sorry for the bad news, the video board failure is common with this series.

you can try reseating the ram but its unlikely to solve the problem. the vga will need to be replaced, the price is around 150 or more.

The flickering may not be caused by a corrupt driver, it could be the impending failure of the fluorescent back light of the display or its high voltage supply.

Trying driver replacement though is the first thing to try.
If the original driver is corrupt, you can try the following;

- Right-click on My Computer
- Left-click on Properties
- Click on Hardware tab
- Click on Device Manager
- Locate and open Display Adaptors
- Locate the video listing for your
- Highlight and delete this
- Reboot the computer

If Windows does what it should (no guarantee on this!), it will 'find' a 'new device' and install the driver for it.

The most common beeps that you will encounter 95% of the time in repairing PC's are:

1 beep - computer ok
continous beeps / long beeps - memory error
continous short beeps - bios boot block/corrupted bios
1 long beep followed by 3 short beeps - video card error

2 short - RAM failure
3 short - Parity RAM failure
4 short - System timer failure
5 short - Motherboard failure

the vga board has failed, its a very common problem in acer laptops, you can get a replacement part from im not sure if they ship into us but for europe thats where I get my parts.
my acers vga failed two times, ones within warranty and 12months after that, I have to say that acer products are really bad quality, I'm not sure about the latest models but from what I've seen the vga chipsets have real issues with the motherboards and keep failing over and over again.

I have not looked inside your model but the vga is either integrated into the motherboard = that means the repair will cost the whole motherboard, better to buy a new one.

if your model has a removeable vga like mine does, then you can consider changeing it to a new one. contact acer parts.

One of the covers in the bottom is the memory, one is network and last one I don't remember.
here are the contact details if your acer is out of warranty

The parts for your model are at

you will have to contact acer parts directly, it may be that the vga is build into the motherboard or then the vga parts are not listed.

Hope this may help;

Vga display problem

There is one pin/wire on the VGA connector that translates to the color red on your screen. If you aren't seeing any red, I would suspect that there is damage to the integrated VGA connector on the motherboard, or a component failure in the circuit.

These are great desktop boards.

The Video bus on these boards are shared between the integrated (onboard) video card and port and the AGP slot. This means that you can only use one or the other. When you install an AGP card in the slot it overrides the integrated video including your problem.

If you are good with electronics I'd take a look at the board under the scope and look for damage.

I would rist check with intel on the warranty. You may be surprised. I've had several of these replaced via RMA through intel. They are a bit older but still by desktop board of choice.
