I would check the GPU by connecting an external monitor before booting it, that will allow the external drive to automatically work.

Sounds like the driver board for the backlight is going bad...is there a spot on the screen part of the case ( usually at the bottom) that feels much warmer than the rest?

SOURCE: acer laptop has developed a fully dark screen

I am assuming that you have tried switching from external monitor output and local monitor. There should be a hot key on the keyboard to switch it. Also, try looking to make sure the driver for the display is up to date. I f it was update recently try rolling the driver back. If you need help with doing any of this post a comment. Hope this has helped some.

SOURCE: Acer Laptop Screen Flickering

The flickering screen indicates that it is a backlight problem with either a faulty inverter or inverter connection problem. The inverter is usually located at the bottom edge of the LCD screen, and may have one or two connectors (one for the video info. and one for the inverter power or a combined connector) attached to the motherboard under the case near the top edge of the keyboard near the hinges. Reseating these connectors may solve your problem.

Probably your GPU coming loose from your motherboard (it has integrated video chip that cannot be replaced seperately). It's a BGA (surface mount) chip that is soldered to the motherboard. These laptops have overheat issue due to poor thermal design. Solder will eventually fail completely and you will have no video.

Solution is to reflow the GPU chip using reflow pen or heat gun. Youtube has a video of someone doing the reflow on an IBM laptop. Mine had no video and is now working great after reflow and replacing the junk thermal tape between GPU & heatsing and CPU and heatsink with quality thermal paste.

If you're not familar with computers...you'll have to take it to the shop which can get pricy for a new motherboard + labor (they will NOT fix your old one). I would contact HP...they have a recall / Enhanced Warranty Program to extend warranty on certain AMD models that experience this issue.

Sony vaio model pcg-61611L it turns on for 4 seconds and then it turns off using the ac adapter . help please


The charger may be bad, will it charge the battery? a common problem is the DC jack in the laptop breaks connection on the motherboard internittent operation or no power and shut down. If you can sub the charger that will tell if the power supply is bad or the problem is in the laptop. If the computer is the issue I recommend a professional because it will require extensive parts removal.

I have a Sony VAIO PCG-K25 Notebook Problem. When I Push the Power on Button, A flickering white screen comes up. The system goes throught boot up just fine but the LCD screen remains white. When hooked...


Hello
These symptoms are not the inverter problem, What can you do if the laptop LCD screen turned completely white? From my experience I can tell that this problem may be related to the following: 1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen. 2. Defective LCD screen. 3. Defective motherboard (I assume the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard).
Check these by yourself or get assistance from sony support.
Good Luck

Noticed screen flickering occasionally the last


Screen bulb burning out, bad inverter, or LCD wires crimped or exposed and touching each other and shorting out.  Have IT open this puppy up and look into it or you can do it if you got the tools and your handy. You can get a new screen on e-bay for around $150

Sony vaio PCG-GRT30P Screen Problem


You could have a defective screen, either a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp - follow this to determine the fault.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

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.
Check out www.lcdparts.net for parts, repair service and DIY info.
