OH man, I used to OWN a PC JUST LIKE that one. Okay, you could have a number of problems for that particular machine. Those Acer Motherboards are tricky. Here is why; IF you do not have the proper speed of RAM inserted in the slots, it will not POWER UP the GPU to give you a video screen on the monitor. Next, the GPU (Video Chip that is on-board) could be just BAD. You can find a nice Video Card that's about 256 MEGABYTES or more on Amazon.com for LESS than 40 bucks or so. The Video Slot on those boards are PCI 2.0, so you can get a nice video card to solve your dilemma bro.

Black screen on laptop


When it is in that state, try hooking it up to an external display. Also look for a extremely faint image on the screen. If it's really faint you have a bad back light, if you see nothing but you get a display on an external monitor it's probably the display going bad.

I have a XPS M1530 the screen is black I press the power button for a second it stay on everything lights up sounds and feels like its on gets warm but nothing on the screen Itrying everything taking out...


You either have a Video Card problem or an issue with your LCD Screen.

Does it every post anything to the screen? If nothing ever posts on the screen when you hit the power button and it will not do anything with an external monitor, then your Video Card is bad. I wonder if you have the Nvidia Graphics Video card on your system?

If it seems like the laptop booted up all the way (you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, see lights) but the screen is black then try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

It seems from the begining you have had nothing but trouble, if under warranty return the item, because it will eventually fail, it is a matter of probability.

Powers up but black screen shows


1st - Try pressing <Fn> + <BrithnessUP> keys a few times, (on HP <Fn> key is between <Ctrl> key and <Windows> key, <BrightnessUP> key is <F8> key and <BrightnessDown> key is <F7> key. If nothing happens try the 2nd one.
2nd - Plugin external monitor, (type and size doesn't matter). Turn on your laptop. If you can see desktop on the external monitor, your drivers are o.k., The problem is your laptop display, NOT the graphic chip.

No Signal


You have to use the FN key and F5 to change between the LCD screen and the external monitor. It may be F8 also, depending on the laptop model.

Look on the F keys for a little picture of a monitor.

Once you have found it, hold the FN key and tap the F key and it should switch to the external monitor.
