Monitor blank when startup, have to restart several times

My acer 5570 laptop monitor goes blank each time I turn it on. I had to restart several times and had to wait about 20-30 minutes for the startup display to come on. It becomes worst if I don't turn it on for a day or two. Help!

The problem is probably caused by the LCD's inverter.
I had problems like yours with some Acer laptops and had to replace the LCD's inverter.

Monitor goes blank

Try restarting the computer in Safe Mode and then check. In case it flickers in Safe Mode too, then the LCD screen might be damaged and you might need to replace it.

Acer Aspire 5570 black screen.

This problem occurs in most Acer laptops. Its actually a bug in the mother board. Try reinstalling the clock battery or give it to your nearest service center.

ACER cracked screen..external monitor???

Hi there.
The keyboard toggle you are using is the correct one.
Sometimes you have to hit Fn + F5 a couple of times to stay on there is no real set time. Make sure Fn + F6 is on so the laptop screen stays on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Monito Black at startup ACER ASPIRE 2920

some times the data cable and the power cable to the LCD screen get loose due to handling or missuse/installation errors. so try to remove the cover just above your keybord.with a thin screw driver where u will see the small jacks for the LCD. remove and refix it and see. if it does not solve the problem, check ur battery condition. If the battery condition is ok, load a xp boot disk and reinstall the OS.

Display Becoming White

First, to verify if it is your display adapter, connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if it displays fine. If it is fine on the monitor, then we know that it is from your laptop screen(in this case, it is either you first check from a technician if it is the colour that has to be refilled or if you need to purchase a new screen). If not then it is from your display adapter(could be from corrupt display drivers). In this case, you would have to re-install new drivers for your display adapter(you can download it from your system manufacturer's website if you don't already have it).

Acer Aspire 5100 will not start right

It seems your hard drive has corupted.
This sucks, all you have to do is push ALT F10 and then go through the reseting menu, you will loose everything on there though except the original data.

Acer Travelmate 6291 LCD monitor problem


Your concern is a typical problem with LCD displays/monitors. There could possibly be three (3) reasons why it is behaving as you have posted.
1. Backlight/Inverter problem;
2. LCD panel problem;
3. Video card problem.

You can do initial diagnosis by:
a. connect the laptop to an external monitor. Using the Fn + F? keys, activate the external monitor to be the default display. If it works, you have eliminated the possibility of the video card having a problem. If it likewise did not display anything or blanks out after sometime, then you have just confirmed that it is the video card that is a problem.

If you have ruled out the video card (using above procedure), you can proceed determining if it is an LCD panel problem or backlight/inverter problem.

To determine if it is a backlight/inverter problem, run the laptop normally even without a display. Let it boot and run through its startup sequence even if you can not see anything. Using a flashlight, shine a light obliquely to the face of the LCD display. if you can see some semblance of your desktop albeit dark, then you have just confirmed that it is the backlight/inverter. If even with the aid of a flashlight, the display s completely blank, then it is possible that the LCD display panel is defective. In some cases it is the flexible flat cable that is at fault.

With any of the aforementioned possible problems, opening the unit is required. This would need familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and perhaps even a soldering iron. Should you not be comfortable doing this, it would probably be to your best advantage to seek the services of a qualifiedly professional.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
