Question about Acer TravelMate 2480 PC Notebook
My Travelmate 2480 has flickering with horizontal lines so bad I can barely make out the display. I have replaced the cable and the inverter. I also happens at boot so it could not be OS (I assume, since the OS is not loaded at boot, right?). My next step is the most costly, LCD screen replacement. Video is fine with external display so I do not believe it is the mainboard. Anything else?
This is a known problem. All reviews way this:" We
found the 2480's silver-and-black case compact and aesthetically
pleasing. Flipping open the lid reveals a 14.1-inch, 1280 x 800-pixel
widescreen display. As with the 2480's screen looked a bit washed out and dull, even with the brightness settings cranked."
The reports all point to this being the biggest drawback.
Does it make any difference with adapter plugged to power &/or batteries.
The problem as you have already deduced is the LCD screen itself....................................................sodeep
PS: this is a budget product so........................

When you adjust the angle of the screen does the display get any better or does it get worse?
You say you have tested the laptop with an external monitor, did you test it in normal mode?
I'm asking this because we have to rule out the inverter or possible loose cables first before we come to the conclusion that it is the screen.
