Re: screen

It may be either the backlight lamp or the inverter. You swap out one, if that doesn't do it, you swap out the other. The lamp is cheaper (they run from $5-$15) and the inverter is more expensive (in the $60 range) but the inverter fails more often that the lamp. The job itself isn't hard at all, once you get the LCD cover off. If you need help with instructions, I can be available for that.

Acer aspire 5532 is my laptop. i accidentally hit it with a hard object moments ago, then suddenly the screen just appereared like there is a ripple. this ripple almost half of the screen. what can i do?

If the screen is cracked then it needs to be replaced.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow myinstructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Ny acer aspire one only shows blank screen

The backlight have went out on your screen. I had this happen on an old laptop2_bing.gif I was messing with. Check the link below for some tips.

DARK SCREEN If you shine a light on the screen, can you somewhat see the screen? Does the laptop power up properly? (can you hear it running?) Hook up an external monitor to your laptop, does the external display properly?

My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun

The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.
