If you are lucky the connection for the hard drive may just need reseating

You may need hard drive if you can not boot it after reconnecting the HDD from the motherboard. For this you will have to open the bottom plates and then proceed. A tough job to do if you are not very conversant with it. Get a repairer to do it if you feel a little faint. if after doing that you cant get the laptop to boot, then try reinstalling the OS from the recovery CDs. If that too fails then get a new HDD.

Bring your laptop under sunlight. If you look very closely and can see your screen then your backlight went out. Otherwise there might be a loose/broken connection to your lcd.

I had a memory card in the slot of my computer, and last night forgot and put it down on it's side briefly - this morning when I went to turn it on, it made the whizzing sounds and the lights lit up, but...


what i would try, is pull the battery and leave it out for half an hour, and then plug in the laptop, turn it on, and then insert the battery. this should reset the cmos settings and clear up any problems

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.

Reseat the memory to see if that does the trick, if not then take the battery out and only hook up the adaptor then turn it on and see if you get a picture, if not then your motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
