Sounds like your back light in your LCD screen is out.

What were the last things were you doing with your laptop before the LCD screen stopped working?

If the light stays on for longer than about 20 seconds, try moving the lid back and forth, try positioning it in every possible way. If you get an image, even for a second, you need a new LCD cable. If nothing happens, try to get your hands on an external monitor. Plug that bad boy in, if you get the image, you need either a new LCD cable or a new LCD screen. If still nothing happens, then you probably need a new motherboard.

Before you go buying a new MB/LCD/LCD cable, which can be rather costly, open up the back and make sure the RAM is seated properly, sometimes something can jar RAM sticks loose.

P.S. DON'T FORGET TO VOTE

My acer 5535 powers on and off but lcd screen remains black also no image to external monitor


Seems like the display output is shot. The only solution is to replace the motherboard, which can be done but isn't easy, or you could buy a new computer.

Black screen / HD light steady and the fan keeps running


Ok, check your RAM, reseat or clean it with soft eraser, only its edge connector both side. Do this when unit is off and no other power source is connected to it even its battery.

Hope this help.

Problem black screen for acer aspire 5050


Probably the video card. Check in Device manager to ensure the drivers are not corrupt. If they are there will be a yellow, red or black sign next to the video device. Right click, uninstall the driver then reboot. The plug and play will load the correct driver. If that does not work then replacing the video card is needed.

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot at all


Yes, it's not the hard drive.

More than likely it's your motherboard.

There's not much you can do besides trying to boot the computer without the battery, and removing and reinstalling the memory.

Hopefully you'll get lucky!

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
