Acer Aspire 3500 Motherboard.

When presure is applied to right side of computer, screen begins to garble. goes into lines of color interfering with the displayed image, and at times divides into 3 garbled reduced images. Displays bes when resting on a flat object near center of computer and little or no pressure applied to right side of computer. I'm assuming it is a motherboard issue but not sure.

Some acer models were renowned for a "too-weak" chassis, and leaning on the caused them to flex too far, i think what you are seeing is a result of continuos applyed stress to the motherbard, you could try getting a new board fitted,or if it isnt too bad, the old one rpaired, but its a big job

Flickering horizontal lines on the screen and spread purple color


Hi,

I work for a computer company and i am sorry for what has happened to your computer. Regarding the display that your screen shows I'm afraid but let me get straight forward. The LCD screen is broken from the inside. Probable causes:
  1. Computer must have been accidentally dropped.
  2. Force applied on top of the laptop which caused the back side of it pressed.
  3. Heat that escapes from the motherboard, goes through the keyboard straight to the LCD which causes liquid elements to expand and breaks LCD from the inside. That's why it is always advisable to let the laptop cool before closing the LCD screen.
I'm sorry about what happened.

Color on lcd screen changes, tap the computer


Could be either a loose connection or a defective lcd cable or lcd. Likely a bad lcd cable. ordering one from ebay and replacing it is the easiest way to tell and least expensive

Acer aspire screen goes all lines


Parts that can be involved are LCD display, display ribbon cable, or in worst case graphic chipset on motherboard.
If the problem goes on and off when pressing LCD display enclosure, then it can just be the display cable or the LCD itself.
The computer must be taken apart to find out what is causing the problem. First you try adjusting display ribbon cable, then, if moving cable problem goes away, but you cannot fix it, you replace the cable that costs few dollars. If this still does not work you replace the display.
Cheapest replacement can usually be found on Ebay

Monitor freezes up with multicolor wording or distorted images


Sounds to me like a few possible things...

1) Bad connection to the monitor, check the cable connection, if you see or suspect any damage, buy a new monitor or test with a friend's monitor.

2) Video card could be bad, if it has a video card, you could simply buy a new card to see if it will fix the problem. If the video port is attached to the motherboard (meaning onboard video), the motherboard could be damaged.

3) The motherboard could be bad. Sometimes fried motherboards will garble the screen like this on bootup.

This is very possibly a hardware problem, namely a crack in the motherboard. Sorry, no easy or cheap fix for it if that's the case.

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 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.
