Question about Acer Computers & Internet

Acer screen is black or blurry

My acer 5601 screen is black or blurry on half the screen. The other half, I can see perfectly. When I plug into external monitor it shows the whole screen. I have tried shining a light, and see nothing new. I can push in on the sides of the screen and sometimes I can see more of the monitor but it then goes back to half dead screen. I am very new to this and very computer unsavvy. Do I need to buy a new screen or new computer?

If you've connected an external monitor to your computer and the image is coming up fine then that means your video card on the motherboard is good.

The only other parts it could be is the LCD Flex cable that connects to the LCD screen to the motherboard, the LCD Inverter that powers the LCD screen or the LCD screen itself. Usually you can find a used screen that is complete with all those components on ebay.

LCD Screen is normal on one half and blank on the other


Most likely. You can check the cable connection to the motherboard and check the cabel where it goes thru the hinge assy for wear, but what you describe is indicative of a hardware failure of the LCD

Also connect an external monitor, see if it shows full screen, if it does, and reseating the cable has no effect, check Ebay for a replacement LCD

Black screen on the right side of my acer 5630


You need to give me a few more details,is the screen blurry on one side,and brighter on the other?,two, are you using a some special graphics software that might not be ment for your computer,you should plug a monitor into your laptop to see if it gives the same affects,and press the window or function key, and one of the monitor symbols on your keyboard at the same time(,they are coloured the same as the function key),to change your main screen to a plug n play one,if the screen comes up with the same affects then it is a software problem,you might have to uninstall the software that is causing the problem,or two if is comes up perfectly,then it might be a hardware problem,you might have to bring your laptop to a pc mechanic to be degaussed,this puts a charge on your laptop screen and it costs more to do than replace one,most plug and play monitors can degauss them selves,others need to be done manually,unfortunately laptop screens have to be taken apart to be degaussed,i know its silly.if its not blurry then it cant be hardware problem.its one of your graphics settings.
