Question about Computers & Internet
I bought my Acer just over three months ago and now, only sometimes, it sounds like it's booting up, but the screen remains black. There is nothing wrong with the display. The problem is intermittent, though it seems to be happening once every few days now... I made restore disks. Is that my next option? The 'restore' point when I tried a simple restore didn't go back more than a week... Any ideas? I don't want to shell out lots of cash, especially since I bought it so recently.

SOURCE: d2d recovery
Is the d2d erecovery function enabled in the bios?
To check, activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST; while the notebook PC logo is being displayed.
To enable D2D recovery ard disk recovery), select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen.
Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled.
That should allow you to use the F10 function key to activate D2D.
* Note: D2D e-recovery is not in Acer Empowering Management.
AEM is a power management utility that supports ACPI (advanced configuration and power interface) which allows for maximum power conservation and maximum performance. (Managed by the windows OS)

its a hardware issue, and why its your motherboard on laptop have a problem, not physically but i think your try to re-update your BIOS to clear out all the malfunction chips inside your laptop. This problem was actually i encountered before but no one also understand why is always came back the problem on it. Go to the website on the ACER www.acer.com to download the latest BIOS updates on it.
You should install it one by one or step by step like for example 1.0 then 2.0, like that. And don't be so hurry the BIOS is a very delicate setup rather than Windows System.
Basically restore the BIOS setting on default after that installation.
This installation might help to you with that problem and dont forget to unplug all unnecessary input devices so that it will not hang up again. Afterwards run Disc Recovery Disk to setup Windows System, good luck! Bboy

I have an ACER extensa 5630 laptop with the same white screen problem. I found the wiring connecting the LCD and mother board was the problem. Several ground wires from the LCD were wrapped, but not soldered, around another wire from the microphone which then goes to the connector for the motherboard. You will need to remove all the tape wrapped around the wires starting from the motherboard connector to about 3 inches back.

Tips for a great answer:
Oct 25, 2013 | Acer C7 Chromebook
detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and
time on the right hand side box. Select that date.
Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.
After reboot your problem should be resolved.
