Question about Acer AL1917W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Brightness is off - screen is black - I can force it to work by toggling the stand-by button on my Acer Aspire 5100 - is it the driver or will I need to get an inverter? Screen went black but the computer is still working fine. A few weeks before this the screen had a red tint as it warmed up after turning on - I thought the screen was fine in a few minutes. Now it just goes black. I finally got it to working intermittantly but is is a pain and it's still very dim.

I have an acer aspire 5315 and the screen goes black I have tried to go into set up and I have taken out bateries etc but it's still not working . Any help is greatly appreciated thanks


Hello mariawint589,

The following instructions are from the Acer Aspire 5315 user's guide (page 35):

The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on, three hings might be the cause:

*The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn>+<right-arrow key> (Increase) to adjust the brightness level.

*The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hotkey <Fn>+<F5> to toggle the display back to the computer

*If the sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating.

Have a great day,

I have accer 5100 notebook,its screen goes blank but still looking too close it it with a bright light u will see inside thats its running but it has basically problem with the LCD light.at very first it...


Well this sounds like a back light issue which is common to happen on old laptops, if it is under warranty get the screen replaced. If not then find out the price to get it repaired.
If you have a monitor sitting idle, then connect it to the VGA port at the back of the laptop and then use the Function key to toggle the video to it. This may or may not work on all laptops.
But yes your data is safe and the hard drive is working. So you don't need to worry about that.

Hi im jen , can u help me to fix my screen laptop acer 5100 i need to adjust the brightness but i couldnt find teh settings where to adjust it


Hold down the function button and press one of the arrow buttons (probally the 'up' button). The function button is the one with the letters 'Fn' on it, on the left side near the bottom.
Good luck, and please rate my answer.
