Question about Acer Aspire 4530-5889 Notebook PC

Open Question

My Acer Aspire 5050 had the screen removed, as it had been broken. Before this happened, the monitor I had connected to it suddenly shut off. This monitor is an HP vs19e. So anywho, I can't get it to work. I press the menu or Auto button and it just says "Monitor going to sleep" I hit the Fn button with the monitor symbol I have no idea how many times and it still doesnt work.

My computer will not boot up Acer 5050 all the lights com on but it never boots the screen stays black. it will not turn off unless you remove the battery.


If you have a VGA cable and a monitor, attempt to plug this into a monitor to verify that the laptop will not boot into your OS (Windows generally). If it does end up booting into your OS, then it sounds like your LCD has died or become unplugged inside the laptop.

The white screen just suddenly appearsin mya acer laptop, what shall i do?


To determine if the LCD screen is faulty or the video card.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port. Power up the external monitor first and then the laptop. The video will automatically switch to the external monitor and if you see a normal Windows image then the video card is OK and the fault is with the LCD screen,
If this is the case power down and re-seat the video cable/connector on the laptop. This hopefully will fix your problem.

I was playing a game n my acer 5050 laptop when suddenly the screen went black and wouldent show anything the back light still workis but i cant see any display


Do you know the temp. of the motherboard/graphics card?
Kinda sounds like the actual graphics card got hot, and shut down..... try turning the unit off, letting it sit for around 30 minutes, then turn it back on, and see if the same problem happens.

Try to make it a point to see how hot the bottom of the unit it.

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank


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.

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.

Acer aspire 5050 laptop color lines on screen


you can try pulling the screen apart and re-seating the ribbon cable, but the lcd might be broken, or one of the controller lcd chips might either be cracked or broken. Trying to reseat the lcd ribbon cable might help, but if there is a visible crack in the screen- you will need a new screen.
