More than likely it's a bad video module/card whatever it is. It's a big heatsink & fan thingy next to the giant cpu heatsink & fan. I just got one of these in for repair & it took me a week to figure out what the hell it was. I finally got it narrowed down to the video. This one boots clean but quickly gets horizontal bars on the screen & corupt graphics & will not boot to the os. I verified this by using the vga port on the back with an external monitor. Same results. Also pulled the ram sticks,tested them,tried a different cpu,different hard drive, & tried to boot from cd. No dice man. It takes a geforce go 5700 & good luck finding one! I'm still looking. None on ebay or anywhere so far. I'm probably going to sell it for parts. customer does not want to fix it & gave it to me. These aren't easy to diagnose pc's. Hopefully this helps. Do not buy a new motherboard!! It won't fix it!! if you got more questions on this issue. Peace

You more than likely will need to reinstall windows because windows in not booting correctly. You can try to boot to the windows vista disc, and select repair your computer and to a startup repair and and/or a system restore if the startup repair doesn't work, if you still are getting the same issue you will have to reinstall windows. If you need to back up your data to a flash drive or external hard drive in the repair your computer options when you boot to the vista dvd select the command prompt and then type in "notepad" and it will open up the notepad but it will also allow you to open files(which is windows explorer and you can copy and move data in here if the driver is still accessable).

**If the laptop has a restore feature you may want to do that instead of the osri.

It boots up and I can hear the HD ticking over but the screen remains blacked out

Hi. Connect an external monitor then power on your laptop and see if you get a display on external monitor. If display works on external but not on your internal LCD, you need to replace your LCD. I would suggest to have a qualified technician check your laptop to see if you need to replace the whole LCD assembly or just CCFL or inverter.

Black screen

Does it boots windows? If the screen gets blank after Windows booting up, you can try repairign the OS. If the whole unit doesnt boot up, then the hardware must be in problem. Check the Hard disk, the power supply and the RAM.

Thank you!

Accer laptop not ON

Check all the simple things first. Is it plugged in, is the adapter plugged in correctly, did you push on the correct power switch. Is there power from the wall socket, etc. Laptops don't just die, there is a reason it does not come on and in your case it is a power problem.
