Question about Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Notebook

1 Answer

Computer just blacked out

I have an Aspire 5002WLMi laptop - it just blacked out - when I tried to restart it - right after the "Acer" screen - it when to LAN check - then says "No DHCP or proxyDHCP offers were received -Operating system not found" - from the Acer screen when it first turned on, when I click F2, it takes me to "setup"; however, from the same Acer screen, when I click Alt and F10, it does nothing. I can not use my recovery CD - nothing happens. What might be wrong? Is there anyway I can fix this problem? Should I take it to an expert or does it sound like this laptop is just no good? Thanks

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi PC Notebook Laptop shuts down automatically

  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with all troubleshooting2_bing.gif, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
If this does not work you will probly have to go back to factory settings

Monitor Problem

This is probably the result of using the wrong display driver. It may even be set for an external monitor. If it was used with an enternal monitor, connect it up to the same one (or something similar) and use the display settings to get the computer to use the LCD as the primary.

A really dim display like you're describing is most likely a backlight problem.  If your inverter went bad you wouldn't have any display at all.  you need to get your backlight changed.
