Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

2 Answers

Same model laptop computer, acer 5315-2153

The screen goes black but I can still see the web page I'm working on.. that sounds weird but I don't know how to explain it. I was thinking the backlight but when I called a local repair shop for a price quote to replace they said laptops do'nt have backlights but something called an invertor, which of-course starts at $50 for the part & 80 for labor to start. I can get it to come back on by pressing the FN & f6 but it only stays for a few seconds then dies again. Does that mean it's the whole LCD?Any help?

    ok, they would have to replace the whole LCD not those other things? For as cheap as it was, wonder if it's worth the $$

Most laptops DO have backlights. The inverter has to do with the type of electric current (DC to AC)

I had the same problem on a dv9000 as well.
Did you use the laptop much on the couch/beds etc? (So the temperature went up)? My video chip became "unsoldered" by a manufacturing fault.
If above is the case, please contact your local dealer.
If not, Please try updating your videocard driver (try using save mode with networking if Windows doesn't want to startup the regular way anymore) The drivers are on HP's website, here : support.hp.com

See if the problem is there when you boot into safe mode. (Keep tapping the F8 key while booting). If you get your screen is working ok then it is software/driver related. By the sound of it , it is a graphics card problem. The graphics are integrated on this model so it means a new motherboard or sending it to a specialist repairer. Srri.

Well in the start up process this is really what happen the first couple second of the computer starting up...
the first couple seconds after hitting the power button it does a hardware check..
All hardware passed it proceeds to the software check the drivers and stuff...
if the computer comes to a black screen after start up, or any weird writings, then basically some hardware didn't pass the test and failed causing the start up to fail...
If thats the case i would recommend taking it into a local repair store or calling manufacturer if still under the standard 1 year warranty...
nothing to lose, but a welcome screen to gain, give it a shot...

Gateway FPD1750 monitor's keep go black screen, no picture at al


tgordon60, If you know how those NEW "CURLIE-Q" energy efficient CFL light bulbs produce WHITE LIGHT, then you will know what makes an LCD display panel produce all the pretty colors and the WHITE BACKGROUND of the FIXYA web page!!! Only difference is that your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" are thinner and straight, and hung on rear of LCD glass panel and have a DC to AC electronic ballast called an "INVERTER" circuit to produce 600 to 1000vac to light them up. Get to my FIXYA profile and read my responses to other BLACK screen lcd owners to learn about all your options for repair. Follow any of the links to other web pages you find there. Your monitor not any different than ACER, DELL, VIEWSONIC, BENQ, SONY, AOC!!!!! 12fixlouie aka louie12fix

My monitor screen goes black it lights up about half the scree when i first turn it on then blinks like a light bulb that is not screwed in all the way then goes completly black acer al2002w


vandetucker, You should use your warranty and use it NOW!! When "IT" goes to "BLACK" can you see the WIN-desktop when holding a bright flashlight at different angles 1 inch from screen??? How old is unit? How many "ON" hours does it have? Your monitor isn't any different than a Gateway or LG or Phillips, VIEWSONIC, SHARP, Samsung, Sony, Dell!!! You will need to read a few of my other responses and follow some of the links to web pages that you find already in my profile on fixya, so that you will know what questions to ask about repairing your unit. Let me know WHAT YOU WANT TO DO after you have done some research about your BLACK SCREEN lcd monitor. Here is an option I just know you will love. You can do the trade for new 2010 monitor unit and the technician in the back of the computer store just might put $6 $8 in parts into your old AL2002WSD and have a nice wide screen for the new year. Yeah, and your monitor "blinks like a light bulb" !!! Oh my!! How right you are!!! Do you know anything about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps"? You should also see if Acer has a cash+old swapout program for a same model refurbished unit??? You should also give ACER a little bit of lip about the poor reliability of their short lifespan electronic ballasts and CCFL lamps. Like to know what your going to do! 12fixlouie Bye for now
