Connect to an external monitor, if it works fine then it is the monitor, if not its the video card.

Lcd acer al1917w dispay problem


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.

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.

How to remove white and black leakage screen


Your lcd screen has gone bad and needs to be replaced. To isolate that it's the screen or the video card borrow a monitor from a relative, neighbor, friend or co-worker and plug it into the laptop. If the borrowed screen displays fine without any problems then your original screen is bad. If the borrowed screen shows the white area with black leakage ink as your old monitor then the video card in the computer is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.

On an Acer Aspire 1640z I get blue screen and lines. lines move with track pad movement. nothing readable. replaced lcd cable and inverter. thinking either lcd or motherboard


Hook it up to an external monitor. If the display is fine on the external then your gpu on the motherboard is fine and the LCD is bad. No external display means bad board. Both cost roughly the same but an LCD is much easier to replace than the board.

My acer KAV 60 screen is not working. the hard drive boots and it charges but nothing happens on the screen. It just remains black. I did't drop it or spill liquid on and it's only a year old.


In order to check what is really not functioning. Your laptop have a video port for external monitor which is color blue often at the lower back of your lcd screen or at the side. Plug the CRT or LCD monitor to your vga(video graphics adapter) port to check if your laptop is still functioning. If there is a display on your external monitor that means you have to replace your lcd monitor. If there is no display with external monitor check your memory or ram by unplugging your memory then clean it with a hard eraser the memory pin and then put it back again and turn on your computer to test if already functioning. If the above procedure didn't work you have to bring it in a computer repair shop. Have a good day!

It depends, if the lines are due to physical damage then the warranty is no good if the screen is faulty the your fine. the way to find out is if you apply a little bit of pressure to the line and it gets bigger then its physical, if not get your warranty out

Scrolling colored lines on the monitor, overlaying the screen.


You either have extremely screwy drivers, a bad cable or your monitor/panel is shot. Replace any of the above to resolve the issue.

Screen showing funny lines and colors.


That would be the screen itself that needs replaced, if you needed the inverter board you screen would be dark and hardly visable

Acer 3000 Screen not working properly


This is most likely either a.) the connection to the LCD is falling out or b.) the screen itself is going bad.

If you feel comfortable to tackle this job you can buy the LCD to replace:

Be sure to double check with the company to make sure that this screen will work with your notebook.

If you computer is still under warranty or maybe you purchased an extended warranty the manufacturer might cover replacement of the LCD.

hope that helps!

Acer aspire 5050 laptop color lines on screen


you can try pulling the screen apart and re-seating the ribbon cable, but the lcd might be broken, or one of the controller lcd chips might either be cracked or broken. Trying to reseat the lcd ribbon cable might help, but if there is a visible crack in the screen- you will need a new screen.
