Re: Laptop Aspire 5051AWXMi/serial...

Good morning, Suchitra;
Sounds like a definite problem with your LCD assembly.
My suggestion is that you use that warranty and have them fix it.
The problem won't go away by itself and if you wait until it's out of warranty, it will cost several hundred dollars to repair.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating. If this information has answered your question and/or lead to a resolution, please rate it as "Fixya!".
Thank you, and have a super day!

If it is under warranty take it to have it repaired because LCD begins to act up there is a strong possibility that something internally is going bad. An inverter, data card, data strip, or bad backlight either way it is still under warranty. Either way before the warranty runs out get it repaired because after the warranty runs out the price to repair is out rageous!

How do I connect an Acer Aspire 5051AWXMi laptop to a Canon PIXMAMP220 printer?

If this printer has a USB, plug it in and that's it. Just in case I have included a link for software support.

i got bored one day and made a list of these things. on a laptop you have to have number lock on and hold the fn button and then hold alt and there should be blue numbers on some of the letters, use those. if you use a normal full size keyboard its just alt and the number pad on the right. all of these you have to put a 0 and then the number

What function keys do i press on startup to re insatll the operating system on my acer aspire 3690

you can use the recovery disk which came along with the laptop to reinstall the OS. There is no function key to start the installation automatically, there is a backup / restore button in some laptops which can reset the OS. Check the manual for any such button on your laptop.

Acer Aspire 5315-2153 Serial number

Sometimes a serial number will be imprinted on a receipt, depending on where you bought the computer...or on packaging that you might have saved...
I've seen suggestions that it might be possible to locate it in the cmos/bios setup, but that doesn't seem too likely to me, and if you found one there, it's hard to believe it would be the same as the production ser. #.
You could try sending a support request to Acer, describing your situation... they might have some trick to locate critical info like hitting esc or F2 as it boots, but it may scroll by too quickly to read...

Hi, I have recieved a used laptop from a friend.It is an Acer Aspire 1690LCi ZL3. The unit powers on,battery is good,DVD drive opens but the screen is dead.Please help. Sam

A few things to try. First turn on the unit, and after it seems to have booted up (like at a windows login or something), take a flashlight and in a darkened room shine it on the screen. If you can see a picture, it means your backlight is out. Go on ebay or elsewhere online and look for an acer aspire 1690LCi backlight. Then open up your screen and replace it (there should be tutorials online for this). If you don't see an image, your screen maybe be out or have more serious problems (video card, LCD dead, etc.).

When I type a letter I i get 5 or 6 not the letter??

You've probably got number lock activated / deactivated. This is especially common if you're using a laptop computer. Look for the "Num Lock" button on your keyboard and try pressing it. If you're using a laptop and the Num Lock button is a different color, you might need to hold another key "Fn", Shift, Cntrl, etc while pressing "Num Lock".

Serial number is not valid

Register your new computer by phone, that way, a support person will be able to help you figure out any mistakes in either the serial number or your reading of the serial number. (in some fonts, some numbers look like letters, mainly zeros and ones)
