Re: acer aspire one second display monitor blue
Look onto your keyboard. There is a key that looks like 2 oval one shaded the other clear. Press FN and that key with the symbol on it. It will turn off your LCD and put it into the other. Then hit it again, both screens will have power, but slightly dim, press it once more to turn it off.

The resolution depends on *why* you're getting the blue screen. Start by disconnecting all of the drives, USB devices, and other peripherals. Connect just the monitor, power up, and see if it blue screens. If that works, next add just one RAM module and see if it blue screens. Then, add just the main hard drive and see if it blue screens. Keep adding one device at a time until you find the one that's causing the blue screen error. Once you've identified the bad part, get back to us, and we can discuss diagnosing or replacing it.
1/ Take a close look at the display in bright light; can you see anything there? (If so then the CCFL (or its power supply) needs replacing on the display
2/ hook up an external monitor and see if that works (or at least if the light stays green on the monitor)
3/ Any boot beep? any "Windows sound"?
4/ try removing the battery and (using only external power) see if it starts.
4/ remove the battery AND the external supply, hold the power switch in at least 30 seconds. Hoojk it up again, try it.
Hi, There's no point getting a crisis program if you cannot see the screen in the first place. The problem could be anything from a faulty graphics, faulty motherboard or loose cable or inverter board. To test this connect an external monitor to the laptop and use the keyboard toggle to switch screens (hold down Fn and press the F key that has a monitor icon on it) If the external monitor has a display on it then the problem is the inverter, inverter cable or the screen itself which if faulty. If there is no display on the external monitor you maybe looking at a new laptop. If you have no external monitor to test then look very close at the laptop screen, if you can just make out an image then its the inverter. Post back if you require any more assistance.
Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.
