Please clarify something for me, after installing drivers, system reboots, and you have no POST information or startup screens at all?

    I'm honestly at a loss here I'm afraid. I've not heard of drivers causing a video card to die. I've seen drivers cause display issues in windows, but it shouldn't have affected POST.

Best thing to do is to get the numbers as printed on the board and Google it.

I try to boot up and the dash lights up but the screen won't respond - totally blank. tried to hook up an external monitor and it doesn't see anything -- is it necessarily toast?


If you did press on Fn+F5 when you connected an external monitor on your portable system, the problem lies on the video card of your computer. You may need to have it replaced. If you do not see nothing at all on your LCD display or the external monitor, definitely your video card is busted. But if you at least see something before you get the blank screen, there might still be a bit of hope. Try the following troubleshooting step in case.
1. Boot to the Advanced boot option by tapping on F8 as you turn your computer on. 2. Go to the device manager. (windows key + r, then type devmgmt.msc, then press ok) 3. Click on the plus sign on the display adapter. 4. Right click on the device listed under the display adapter then choose uninstall. 5. Restart the computer to normal mode. 6. Download and install the appropriate video driver that is available on the link.
ATI Video driver
Intel Video driver
Nvidia Video driver
Note: Make sure that you remember the correct driver for your computer as Acer posts three possible video cards for the computer model that you have.

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank


Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.

My ACER AL1715 is doing something wierd: when I boot it up, the desktop comes up and another desktop appears about 3/4 of the way down the screen. When I open the Messenger, it wraps around so that part of...


It sounds more video card/driver/settings related.

Try setting the resolution to 1024x768 intially. It may help to find the optimal resolution settings for that monitor. Max resolution on it seems to be 1280 x 1024 / 75.0 Hz.

Still seeing double? Try updating your video card drivers.

Still? Try installing the LCD driver. While I've never had to do this, it may be an issue with this model. For XP, select your model here: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/acerdrivers.cfm

Snowy Raster on display


Hi mcuyg,

Hope this will give you hint in solving this problem. Try configuring monitor settings in OSD mode; contrast; brightness; etc.. other special settings can be accessed using combination of buttons to minimize the raster intensity. On hardware side try resoldering cold soldered points and check the SMPS side.

Best regards,
