Question about Acer Extensa 4220-2148 Notebook

1 Answer

Starts up on a black screen

My lapotp is a little over a year. More than often, I've been noticing that when I try to start up my laptop, the green power button lights on and the screen has a lit up, but black screen. I turn it off and tried it again two more times, but the same result. I left the laptop on for about four minutes, and slowly the login screen came on. I don't understand why it is doing this and I'm nervous whether I should start backing things up and looking for a new computer.

Hi..
The monitor might be 'dead' because the flyback transformer (specially primary section of it) is not working. You can try replacing it if it doesn't cost you too much...

thank u

Acer aspire 5738 screen fade


From your description, you may either have a bad cable to the LCD on your laptop or the LCD screen itself is going bad. I would guess a repair shop may charge $100-200 for the parts and labor, but you'll have to check your local area for price estimates.

Since your computer is nearly 3 years old, you may want to consider purchasing a new computer, especially since they start at $300-500 brand new.

hi

try rebooting the system (i think its F8, to get to SAFEMODE) . in DESKTOP , right click and go to PROPERTIES, go to SETTINGS, go SCREEN RESOLUTION and take the arrow to the left ; set to 640x800 and and take the color setting to 256 drop down . hopefully this works after rebooting the system. if it doesnt, it may sound like the inverter card may be bad (PC bourd that connectes to the screen : this requires a service technician)

good luck !

Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

Fast overheating inspiron 9400


This sounds like the system has glitched. Do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. This should clear the glitch, get it back up and running, and cure the overheating problem. Try this and get back to me if there are any issues.
