Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

Acer Aspire 5315 lcd screen corruption. External lcd partially ok

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 running Vista basic. The laptop boots but the screen displays thin coloured vertical lines as if the inverter has died.
When connecting to an external monitor I can get the bios config screen and even boot to safe mode and still see display.
However when I let it boot normally it gives the pretty little Windows progress bar then it blanks the external display, I know it's booted ok because I hear the windows start theme.

I'm thinking of replacing the inverter initially and then seeing if there's some daft device driver causing the lack of display when booting windows normally.

Anyone with any thoughts on this... I don't want to get a replacement motherboard if I don't have to...

    Actually it was the inverter. I replaced the part and it works perfectly.
    The clue was in the fact that it would feed to an external display but not the screen.
    The reason it wouldn't display if you booted normally is because the screen res on the laptop was too high for the external monitor.

I know your problem. even if you change the inverter it will not work. the real problem of your notebook is vga memory or video memory. use hot air to resolder your memory. trust me!

Cracked lcd sct reen acer aspire 5315 model


I would start by doing a search on Ebay. Often times you can get parts or a damaged laptop with parts for a very reasonable price. I just did a search for your laptop model and found a damaged Acer Aspire 5315 for $81. As of this posting on 10/31 at 9:10 am CST time, the auction ends in 2 hrs.

After doing a quick internet search, I found a web site called http://www.screencountry.com and I saw a monitor for your model listed at $99.

Turn on your laptop...as soon as it turns you push thepower botton start pressing F8, this will take you to the system recovery screen. You will need to pick the option that says system restore. Dont pick the option that says restore to a restore point, you will need to pick the one that say destructive restore. usually u get this option by pressing the advanced options.
