Hello
Does it do it as soon as the computer switches on or only when it enters Windows.
If it does it straight away then it could either be the monitor or video card.
To test if its the monitor you will have to attach an external monitor to the laptop.
The only way to repair the monitor or video card is to take it to an authorised Dell support center.

If it only does it in windows then it is a software problem ,to resolve the windows problem press F8 while the computer starts up and you will get an advanced menu ,choose the option VGA Mode and hit Enter ,the system will load with a basic Video driver.
If the system manages to go in then we have to remove the video driver.
This can be done by removing it from the Add/Remove applet in Control Panel.It is the ATI driver.
You can download a new one from here :

if you don't have the CD to reinstall it.

Good Luck

My friend's touch pad on his Acer Aspire 5100 won't work. We've tried re-installing the driver but it still won't respond. Please help.


Try to clean around the edges of the trackpad with a can of compressed air, as sometimes gunk will form on the outside areas and will cause your trackpad to not work.

Hi,when i switch my acer aspire 5100 on,it boots up but the monitor(screen)does not come on


Is your monitor turned on? If so, then you likely have a dead monitor. Try plugging a different monitor into your computer and see if it works. Then get a new monitor.
Good Luck!
