Question about Acer Aspire 4520-5582 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a aspire 4520 acer laptop that sometimes freezes up with a white screen and what looks like an equal sign types of lines going through it. kind of in a pattern from one corner to another. it also has an issue with randomly selecting other areas when I am typing; making my words I am typing on, say, the third line appear on the first line and things like that. My aspire 3690 acer has never done these things. Help?

Hi

the freezes and lines is most likely the video card failing, or overheating, or damage from overheating.

Its a common problem with the acer aspires, what can you do about it? Vacuum the dust out form the fan or use canned air to blow it out, there will be a lot of it.

Try one of those cooling pads that goes under it.

depending on how bad the problem is with the video card which in most of these laptops can't be user replaced. Got warranty? It might help or might not help at all. That is generally caused by poor cooling and dust in the fan heat sinks so the air doesn't flow and too much heat being generated by the board and its components eventually damaging the video card or the motherboard.


About the 2nd problem, its mainly caused because of your hand touching the touch-pad try a news paper on top of the touch pad or a usb keyboard and see if that problem goes away.

Sometimes when i used my laptop (acer aspire 4520) suddenly hank and then the screen turn on black like shut down.. can you give me solution for my problems..?


sounds like an issue with the FSB controller chip or the graphic card. There are similar problems with some HP laptop models so you may want to take a look at this repair manual for HP laptop with random freezeups. Basically what happens is that this FSB controller chip loses contact on several pins and you'll need to force it down or reflow it. The other option is to look for a replacement motherboard but this is a much more expensive solution.

Acer aspire 4520: my laptop is not starting up, sometimes it shows blank white screen too. what should I do?


This needs looking at by a technician to ascertain what needs repairing, and if it is motherboard issue then you'l need a specialist repair centre that can repair motherboard faults. Dont be scared the good ones run a no fix no fee policy, and usual price for a fix is £35 for DC Jack repair and £55 for motherboard repair. If you need pointing to a reputable company let me know.

My acer aspire4310 notebook suddenly displays a white screen


If you have blue strip running down vertically from top to bottom then normally there is a problem with LCD or a loose LCD cable.But what I recommend you to test more is tha,t if you tab at the back of your screen ...does this problem occur ???
Incase it does,then its a loose LCD cable problem.You still need
a qualified person who knows how to open the monitor to repair inside.
And again for the White screen it can also be both cases I mentioned above

ByeBye,takecarfe
