Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
Could be the clamshell close switch is bad on it. If that's the problem, it'll require board level soldering skill as well as ability to take it apart down to the motherboard.
Search for Service manual for Acer *model* on the internet and you should be able to find and download the service manual giving instructions on how to perform the required fix.
I highly recommend that you feel confident in your technical abilities before you try to take apart and fix a laptop yourself - and be careful to eliminate the possiblity of ESD - a computer's worst enemy...

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out; usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
