No display on screen in Acer aspire 5830TG with GeForce 540

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire 5830TG laptop with Nvidia GeForce 540 graphic card. Recently while working on the laptop, the display went off, all of a sudden. Now, I can't see anything on the laptop screen except a light brightness. However, when I use an external monitor using a VGA cable, I get the display on the external monitor. I took it a local technician. He tried replacing the LCD with one of his, but same problem. He visually checked the video cable, and said that it looks okay without any disconnection. Then he said that the problem might be with the graphic card as the display on the laptop screen is linked to graphic card, while the display to external monitor is not. So, somehow he checked the graphic card connections for any dry connections and checked the voltages at various points and told me that the graphic card is faulty and needs to be replaced. I am still not convinced with his diagnosis as I am still getting the display on external monitor and can still access the graphic card details and graphic settings on the computer and view the graphic card driver and update it as well. So I can't seem to believe that its the graphic card at fault. Can you please tell me that can the problem I am facing be caused by faulty graphic card at all? Should I believe the technician and go for graphic card replacement and spend so much? Thank you.

If it shows on an external monitor but not on the laptop screen, either the screen ribbon cable has come loose, the inverter/ccfl has died or the lcd screen has died.

If you boot your laptop to external monitor, then unplug the monitor - try shining a flashlight across the screen to see if you can see any dataNo display on screen in Acer aspire 5830TG with Ge - icon1.png/screen info - if you can, then the inverter/ccfl has died. If not, either the screen has died or the cable has come loose

SOURCE: acer LCD fault

You are correct about the inverter, on laptops about 9 out of 10 issues with video may be caused by the inverter, however before you replace the inverter try checking for new driver updates for your video, if this fails you may try hooking up an externail monitor and see if that works ok, if it does then i would try to have the inverter replaced.

SOURCE: how to connect acer aspire mini laptop to digital lcd tv?

You get the audio from PC: you must use a separate audio cable to your TV audio input.
Configure your PC Display properties to a lower resolution until you reach a format your tv can display.
If you use a flat digital screen check the manual to know the resolution to be used with VGA input.
Use Dual screen option or swittch main screen/external/both using FN key + blue key showing screen on your keyboard. (F4 or F7? check manual.)

Graphic card for Acer aspire


One of the best ones is the ATi Mobility Radeon HD 3650. The best NVIDIA one there is the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT. But the ATi GPU is better.
You will probably need to get a new card fitted by Acer or a named specialist.

No display on screen in Acer aspire 5830TG with GeForce 540


I agree with you, if the graphic card was bad, the external display would not work. He probably connected a non-compatible LCD. Unfortunately, replacing the LCD will cost about $100 plus labour. Is it worth it for a 6 year old laptop or should you just continue to use it ask a desktop.

Hi, i have acer aspire 4750G. It has 2 graphic cards, an intel HD and nvidia 540M.. currentIy its using the intel HD. I want to know how can I switch it to nvidia?


Heres how... Its normal to have 2(two) display adapters on Acer Aspire 4750G. To enable NVIDIA GeForce, install the Intel HD Family Chipset Driver First from the installation disk that is included on its package, or click here, or if link doesnt work find it here. Then install the NVIDIA GeForce Driver, also included in installation disk, or click here. That should fix it. Enjoy the 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M.
