Question about Acer Aspire 2930-4661 Notebook

1 Answer

White screen appears, Screen turns fuzzy intermittently

Once the laptop has been on for 8-10 Minutes or so, regardless to weather your in Bios mode or Windows mode, the screen turns white and has lines go through it, something similar to a signal problem we would see on a Normal home television.

If you tap the laptop gently it seems to be Ok for another 2mins or so, till it starts to mess around again..

Some reasons i have heared :

The monitor connection (Ribbon) lead turns faulty
The LCD screen itself could be faulty.

What would be the best way to solve the problem, any source of parts, any How to Guides??

    Thanks for the reply, I did actually plug it to a external monitor and all seems fine!

    The screen lcd screen itself does seem a little flakey compared to a normal one, so i pressume it has had it, typical as the laptop is only 8months old!

To determine if the video card is faulty or the LCD screen, connect an external monitor to the laptop. Power up the monitor first and then the laptop. The video will automatically switch to the monitor. If you see a normal Windows image the the video card os OK.
The next thing is to reseat the video cable and if this doesn't fix the problem then the fault is the LCD screen.

Could be hardware problem. You might need to try to connect to a different screen which you know is working. If it appear to be normal, it indicate that you need to replace the screen.

Fuzzy screen


There are a few things to consider, and your input has validated this...

If you see this on the laptop and an external monitor, it's not your display screen on the laptop. It sounds like your graphics card.

If your system seems to work for a few minutes, but then fails after a while, it sounds like you might have a heat issue where either the cpu or the video card isn't able to disburse heat well enough, so it corrupts your system, regardless of how you're viewing it.

See if you can use a nozzle attachment from your Vac and **** out the crud, get a can of compressed air and see if you can blow out the vents around the fan and laptop, and then try the Vac again.

I've seen laptops from owners that have "cake" in their vents.

Lastly, consider updating your bios. Go to Dell and put in your service tag and get the updated bios for your machine. Sometimes follow-up versions of bios releases have enhancements to laptop cooling. Dell is notorious for coming out with cooling fixes AFTER the product is released.

Black and white lines after bios screen before boot up


The issue appears to be cosmetic if the system boots to WIndows and there are no display issues using the system. Some systems I've seen have a bit of video distortion between the BIOS splash screen and the desktop. A couple things may change that. Update the system BIOS and the video driver to the most current available

Laptop screen went out/bad


Hi falcon30, first thing I would suggest you do is plug the laptop into an external monitor to check that the graphics card/the laptop itself is functioning ok. All your need is a standard PC monitor with a VGA cable, plug the VGA cable into the blue port labeled 19 on the picture below. Turn on the laptop and if nothing appears on the screen, hold down the 'Fn' key and press f5. If nothing still shows than this suggests a different problem. If it shows ok on the screen however, and boots fine then it would suggest that something has failed screen-wise. This could possibly be fixed yourself if you feel confident enough, but without having access to the laptop I am unable to tell you which part of the screen has failed, so the whole screen part of your laptop would need to be replaced, spares for this sort of thing can be found on ebay, and disassembly instructions can be found at this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?product=299255&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=299255&dlc=en&lang=en , you need to download the PC service manual. Otherwise you can continue to use the laptop with a normal PC monitor. If you need any more help just let me know, good luck and all the best. Si :)

Getting accurate color


1) Turn the Mode Dial to MANUAL MODE (Red camera icon with an "M") 2) Use the Arrow Down on the ENTER Button to select W/B (White Balance) 3) Press the center on the ENTER Button to select and adjust W/B (White Balance) 4) Use the Arrow Right (once), then Press and Hold the Arrow Down. Note: Continue to Press and Hold the Arrow Down. There will be a pause as you reach the bottom of the common preset conditions. Then a new "hidden" option will appear. 5) Once PRE SET appears, Press the center of the ENTER Button to select it. 6) A Special screen will appear. Point the camera direct at something WHITE, like a piece of paper, a white wall or a white shirt. Regardless of the lighting conditions, the camera will accept this "white object" as the new starting point "base of reference" or "True White". 7) Press the Shutter Button to program the new "True White" setting. 8) Press the center of the ENTER Button to accept and continue photography. These new settings will be saved as PRE SET True White conditions in Manual Photography Mode until you change the settings with another selection. This will not "go away" when the camera is turned off. These settings do not impact Auto Photography Mode.
