Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
Hi I have an Acer Aspire 3680 and since few months when i start my laptop there is no display on my monitor. i can hear the sound of fan it is running, all the light from cd rom and indicator blicks but the screen is very dark . i can feel there is some text running and laptop is starting but no display on screen (visible very thin- i tried alt+up arrow but do not work )then i again shutdown the laptop from start button directly and starts repeatedly . when i repeat this process many many times then sometimes it works sometimes not.
This problem happens frequently in 2 or 3 weeks so these days i don't fold the screen and let it as open. This helps me a few but problem is not totally solved yet. In the meantime i also format this laptop thinking that may be it helps me but i have not get any differences. when i have this problem and i directly shutdown the laptop i am feeling that it will hurt my PC more but i have no other alternative and i am very worried about this problem . so i am expecting your suggestion.
If you hear the hard drive spinning and you think Windows is working but you can't see an image then :-
You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.
Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
