    Have a similar problem with an Aspire 5630 with Vista home premium. The screen momentarily goes blank at seemingly random times, but the condition does not last for more than a second. Have sent it back under warrenty twice. The first time, Acer replaced the hard drive, claiming the original had defects. The second time, they claim they could not replicate the problem, and sent it back to me. Any ideas on what's going on?

    Hi Chuck- have the same problem as you described with Vista home premium...have since today found some cure for this problem with which i cant really explain-but it appears to have resolved.

    I went into safe mode and immediately noticed the missing graphics on the desktop were present! I then accessed disc clean up and scaned. When prompted i deleted all the things it suggested to clear space.

    On restarting windows in normal mode, all graphics were now present and since continued usage during the day- the black flicker and loss of graphics have become a thing of the past..... just hope it continues or i will definately get it looked at. Weird but True..

That would be my guess. Since it is still under warranty, take it back and let them mess with it.

I have the same problem. It happened to me about half a year ago and reinstalling the OS solved it. So it's by no chance a hardware problem. I have a Acer TravelMate 6291. It must be some kind of a software problem, but don't know which one :-(
