Question about Acer TravelMate 4101WLMi Notebook

2 Answers

Laptop freezes when running at full speed or does not boot.

Hi,

My laptop has recently been playing up...when i turn it on, i get a blank white screen (no bios info) for about 1 minute. Then all of a sudden it will reset and boot. However, within 30 secods of loggin in, windows just hangs. I can keep it running by selecting 'Low' or 'Medium' on the CPU speed setting - it runs fine then. I have replaced the memory and even replaced the CPU - but have the same problem. It is not a Windows issue as it also hangs when I boot in to Linux (I have dual boot set up).

 

Any advice? Is my motherbaord dead? I was suspecting the graphics card (as it does not even get as far as booting the VGA bios). Can i replace the gfx chip?

 

Cheers,

 

Chris.

You are probably right..however you can try to flash your system's BIOS..And then the Graphics card's BIOS..because it sounds like a corrupted BIOS..If you need further help feel free to post comments here..

Hi I'm using aspire 4738G . Well my laptop does turn on and shows acer in the screen and immediately turns blank out with white dash (-) On the top left of the screen. It never shows any progress afte


the white dash is a command cue and it is waiting for you to enter a command for the laptop to proceed
when you switch the laptop on , hold down the delete key until the bios screen appears

Hi lewis haywar,

Try to replace the LCD inverter in your laptop. Most common issues on LCD are due to failing LCD inverter. It fails more often than LCD cable or LCD backlight does.

Please let me know if this solution helped to resolve your issue.

Possibly overheating? As you say that when you press and of the F-Key option nothing is happening, and also the fan is running at full power, if the fan is louder than usual, then it could be overheating in the air vents which you can find either at the sides, back, front and underneath the laptop, try getting the compressed air, and giving the air vents a blast to get all dust out. Or a vacuum. Do it whilst laptop is turned off though!

Hello mate,
I suggest to boot up your computer in safe mode and then restore it to a previous date when everything was working fine. you can also uninstall all the software that you installed recently and also run a scan with your anti-virus.

LAPTOP BLANK SCREEN


Hi,
Try booting the laptop up in safe mode.
To do this restart the laptop and hit F8 as it starts, choose safe mode and see if the laptop boots up. If it does select system restore and restore the system back to before you installed the update.
When the laptop restarts it should tell you if the restore was successful.


Good luck.

Blank white screen in my Acer Travelmate 5730 Laptop


Hello Karthik,
This must surely be a problem with your monitor, because you say that you see the white screen while boot up. If this is a graphic driver issue, you may have the problem after booting up in windows. Since its been only a month old laptop, the product must be in warranty for sure. Take away any CDs in the drive, any USB drives and see if this white screen appears. Let us know.

Thank you!
