Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5033 Notebook

Display problem My ACER 5100 is playing up. The LCD won't display anything it powers up to a grey colour and I can adjust the brightness by the keyboard but no display. A remote monitor plugged into the SVGA socket will work. Any help appreciated

    Thanks for that but I've just realised I amde a mistake it's not a 5100 but a 5000 would this make any difference to the diagnosis?

You are correct in thinking it may be a driver issue. Check the device manager and see if the drivers are installed. Under "Display Adapter", you should see the make and model of your device. If it shows up as Standard VGA Adapter, then you are using built in drivers and should look for the right drivers.

If everything looks good otherwise, then you are probably looking at a faulty LCD/LED. A faulty LCD/LED can yield all kinds of problems, and replacing the entire unit is usually the easiest option. On average an LCD/LED is more or less $50.

Hi I have just bought an Acer Aspire Z5710 all-in-one PC. I find the screen too bright when working for long, and want to adjust the brightness. But i am not able to figure out how to do so. And there is...

I have looked at all of the available pictures of this model PC and all of the images show a Fn key on the lower left side of the keyboard. It is one key to the right of the Ctrl key (the bottom right key on the keyboard)

Let me know if you need anything else.

The screen on my aspire 5100 is so dark i can hardly see it

hi mary welcome to the forum! 1)you have an Fn key bottom row left, hold down while also pressing right arrow, bottom right. Each press increases brightness. Each press of left arrow decreases brightness. 2)go to the manual of Aspire 5100 that you there is the option "AcerClearVision" in the software "AcerArcade". See manual:"Acer Clear Vision is a video enhancement technology that detects video content and dynamically adjusts the brightness/contrast/saturation levels so that you do not need to change the color settings if the movie you are watching contains scenes that are overly dark or too bright." So you opened "AcerArcade". There you take: "movie or cinema--> settings -->display settings" en there you change in the option 'color profile' 'ClearVision' to 'Original'.

The best way is through the buttons in front pannel. It will bring an OSD (On screen Display). Adjust the brightness and contrast from there. ( But I guess you have tried it allready )

Then the other solution which i uses to brighten my display is Power Strip.
You can also lessen the brightness/sharpness/contrast.

Very low brightness

1. try to adjust using KEYs Fn+arrows to the right or left.

2. The components that provide the brightness are the "inverter" and the "flourscent backlight tube". Inverters are known to be problematic,so I would suspect the inverter first.The inverter is in the bottom of your screens plastic housing.It's very easy to replace and it usually costs between $40 and $60.

it depends on what your using it for, adjust colour tones to what you think looks natural, contrast between 80-90, keep sharpness below 30. just have a play around till you find what best suits the source material.

Welcome to Vista. Windows Vista is automatically set up to power down after you have left it alone for too long. If you press the power button everything should be fine. Otherwise tell me what happens.
