Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I had some problems with downgrading from Vista to XP. Then my notebook shuts down as soon as I reached Windows XP booting. I had some problem with overheating of my CPU chip before. I tried opening up the case but it was difficult.. So I tilted my notebook to the side and had a big fan blowing it from the side. After a while the screen went blank. I tried rebooting but the same. The next day it booted up and the screen was fine but upon restart it went blank again.This has been so since. After a few days I managed to rip the case open and took out the heatsink and fan that seemed burnt. I have replaced the heatsink yet. I just want to know what happen to my LCD screen and what I can do to solve this problem. Is it related to the heatsink and fan problem. Thank you.
If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem.
But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.
