ACER 6920G COMPLETELY BLANK SCREEN BUT LIGHTS COME ON + HDD
Hi, please can anybody help me, i'm a week away from my university final hand in and my 6920g has died, or rather the screen has.
It is completely dead when switched on, all lights come on, cinedash consol lights up etc, hard drive is firing and spinning up exactly like it would do, but the screen seems to have no signal or power. I have plugged an external monitor into the PC and that is completely blank too as if there is a signal, but its nothing (when unplugged from the laptop, the monitor then says check connection cable so its a working monitor)
so far i have been told it may be the ram, the bios, or the gpu, can anybody help. its a well looked after PC and have made no recent changes at all, just switched off last night, then this happened this morning. please please please help, i'm close to tears at the thought of losing my laptop.
thanks in advance

If you see power lights but nothing appears on the screen, it could be a "POST" (Power-on Self Test) problem or simply LCD problem.
Here are some steps that you can try.
1. Remove the battery and the ac adapter then press the power button for at least 20 seconds to drain electric charges left from the system. (You may need to repeat this step to get it work.)
2. If above step doesn't work, try to plug in an external monitor and see if you get display from the external monitor. You may need to press the Fn + F10 or F6, depends on the key designed on the keyboard to toggle between displays.
3. If you get display from the external monitor, I'm sure your having problem with the LCD components. In this case, check and replace faulty LCD backlight, LCD cable or LCD inverter. The LCD inverter is often a culprit.
4. Try to reinsert the memory module/s (RAM) of the unit, try using one RAM at a time to see if it works. A faulty RAM will cause the issue not to POST.
5. If reinserting the RAM doesn't help, most likely your motherboard needs to be replaced.
1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. 2.Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. 3.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. 4.Press 1 (One) to select windows XP and then hit enter. 5.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER. 6.At the command prompt, Type compact /U C:\bootmgr compact /U C:\ntldr
ok guys...i have had the same prob and it is now solved...finally...and what an *** about way to build a computer!
The bezel that covers the on and off switch is a snap in piece (it also screws in from underneath)tand you wedge a guitar pick under it and lift and it will pop out. Then you should be able to see the screws that hold the hinges to the main frame, there are two of the screws for each hinge...BRAD justanswer.com)
The screen bezel has 5 screws on the base..3 are acessible from here, 2 are not...These 2 are in the corner and blocked by the hinge...the hinge therefore must be taken apart via 4 screws (2 then you will see 2 more) on the circuitry board...and if you can get this far...the rest is straight forward
you need to set the cam up with msn
follow the instructions please let me know if you still have problems then we can try something else. if it solves then don't forget to rate me

Consult your manual, see what the light means, it could refer to hard drive light activity or be a function key you've activated. It could mean the system is trying to push itself into standby or it could mean a variety of things. Get back to me with what the lights designation is.
