    1.) GET A NEW LAPTOP SCREEN

    3.) LID SWITCH CONNECTIVITY ISSUE
    4.) JUST GET A NEW BACK LIGHT LAMP (BUT IT COMES IN A NEW LCD SCREEN)

    I have a similar problem. My Acer 5100's screen won't show anything--but the strange thing is that when I got it to perform a system restore to a previous point, the screen would work again. There were a few other times that the screen would (seemingly randomly) come on again, mostly when I was attempting to perform recovery tasks (yes, I was doing all of this on an external monitor).

    HOWEVER. Suddenly I got some really strange errors when booting up and the computer became more or less completely unresponsive. The desktop had some strange problem--couldn't access My computer, documents, anything, so I was forced into performing a complete system reboot, erasing everything, but now the screen is completely functionless. I can't get it to work by any method I've tried so far (which mostly involves system recoveries). It would seem to be some kind of software issue.

    Any help would be most warmly appreciated.

If you can see a faint image on the screen in a well lit room the problem could be (most likely) the inverter that powers the backlight for the screen.  The inverters are located at the bottom of the screen behind the bezel.  If this is your problem detailed descriptions of how to remove and reinstall the inverter board are located on the web sites of several inverter suppliers.  If you attempt the repairs yourself, please disconnect battery and external power before service, The inverter supplies high voltage to the lamp.

Possible cause for a blank screen could be as follows:
an external device connected to the computer like flush drive, external hard drive, docking station, printer and others... remove anything connected

could be a bad memory: remove all memories and check if you will get an alert of missing memory

could also be any device installed in your computer like hard drive, optical drive and other internal card installed. remove all and see if it will boot
if still no boot then change your motherboard. try to check also your ac adapter or power supply whether it has solid green light and check also power cable connections

Make sure you did not accidentally press Fn F6. Try it, it blacks, un-blacks the screen!

My acer laptop blacked out yesterday but the programes are still running so i shut it down turn it on again and it worked but this morning i totally got a black screen and everything is dead i need help on...


if you still have lights on the laptop working but no lcd display and it sounds like the hard drive is booting then it could be lcd inverter or lcd display also check your memory that could be bad but if you have no power and no lights then its more than likely power on board

My lapton went black screen


It is impossible to give you a a repair cost because I cannot identify the exact fault without looking and running tests on your laptop. I do not know the labour and parts costs in Malaysia.
I suggest you take your laptop to a computer repair shop and get a quote to fix your laptop.

Screen is black


If it is a brand new machine, I think you should call Acer tech support, as it is covered under warranty. Sometimes people have the urge to take it apart to see what might be wrong, but in a machine covered by warranty, this would be a bad choice!
