Question about Acer Aspire 5000 Notebook

LCD Display not turning on.

My Aspire 5000 laptop is booting but the LCD is completely blank and I am unable to use a monitor for external video either. Since the computer doesn't beep when it posts, i can't tell if its booting into windows or not.. Any suggestions?

Re: LCD Display not turning on.

Do you hear any windows login sounds? If there is no picture from an external monitor it is possible the video card has become faulty. If it is a video card, you are probably looking at a motherboard fix or replacement. Either way best to get it to a laptop repair shop. I dont see any way for you to fix this at home im affraid.

I have an acer aspire 5535, when i turn it on it boots up and the screen stay blank. I think its stuck in sleep mode. what can i do please help??? Nothing shows up on screen what so ever, its just bl

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

I try to boot up and the dash lights up but the screen won't respond - totally blank. tried to hook up an external monitor and it doesn't see anything -- is it necessarily toast?

If you did press on Fn+F5 when you connected an external monitor on your portable system, the problem lies on the video card of your computer. You may need to have it replaced. If you do not see nothing at all on your LCD display or the external monitor, definitely your video card is busted. But if you at least see something before you get the blank screen, there might still be a bit of hope. Try the following troubleshooting step in case.
1. Boot to the Advanced boot option by tapping on F8 as you turn your computer on. 2. Go to the device manager. (windows key + r, then type devmgmt.msc, then press ok) 3. Click on the plus sign on the display adapter. 4. Right click on the device listed under the display adapter then choose uninstall. 5. Restart the computer to normal mode. 6. Download and install the appropriate video driver that is available on the link.
ATI Video driver
Intel Video driver
Nvidia Video driver
Note: Make sure that you remember the correct driver for your computer as Acer posts three possible video cards for the computer model that you have.

Acer netbook will not boot up green power light on, but screen does not show

- try connecting an external monitor. if get a display on the external monitor then there is a problem with the LCD or the LCD cable on your laptop. if your still not getting video then try booting to BIOS (F2 or Del when you turn on the computer). if you are able to boot the BIOS troubleshoot the operating system. if not then you might need to get the video card or the motherboard replaced

Blank screen,pwr sup appears to ok, fans runs, pwr light on

The issue seems to be due to defective video card on the notebook. Connect and external monitor to the PC and check if it works fine or not. You can follow the steps listed below to connect an external monitor.

1. Turn off the notebook.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the external monitor to the monitor port on the rear/side of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

At this time, please follow the instructions mentioned below for switching the display to the external monitor:

The notebook's video card supports three modes. Built-in screen only; external video only; and both on simultaneously (mirrored). If you're not seeing the image on the desired device(s), the notebook's video card is probably in another mode. Press FN + F4 to cycle through the display options: Notebook display, External monitor, both.

If you press FN + F4 once, the external monitor will display & there will be no Notebook LCD display.
If you press FN + F4 twice, the external monitor will display & there will be some shading on the Notebook LCD.
If you press FN + F4 thrice, both Notebook LCD & external monitor will display.

If the issue persists on the external monitor, then this could be due to defective video card on the notebook. However, if the display on the external monitor is fine, then the issue is with the LCD display panel of the notebook. In either cases, the notebook requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

If your PC is under warranty, contact HP to get available options to get the notebook repaired under warranty.

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank

Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.

Acer aspire 5220 booting problem

Try connecting to an external monitor. If it displays on the external monitor then the LCD is probably dead. If it doesn't display on the external monitor, its a problem with the video card.
