    I have the same issue. The screen on my Aspire 5100 will not turn on.

    When I connect the laptop to an external monitor, the external monitor works.

Your lcd monitor might be faulty. I would recommend takeing it to a local pc repair shop or to acer for analysis / warranty repairs.

Or if you know how to enter the bios and reset the settings back to defaults, it maybe that the lcd monitor is turned off from bios.

How to get into bios?
When power is turned on the screen should show text Example:
Press F2 to enter setup or similiar f1, delete are also commonly used keys to enter bios.

In the bios just look around and find the button for default settings.

good luck, let me know if theres anything else.

May be this some conntact in the motherboard or chip heating because in this notebook the cooling system is not so good.
Or, may it be from adapter because in the jack cable when I mesaure the voltage is about 14,2 V approximatly. And I don't understad why is this voltage when mY adapter is 12V. The cable I put it my self becaus the old one is damaged but adapter is the same.
