You may check power settings in control panel and see if somehow the settings for your screen are set to turn off or the power settings program has been corrupted for some reasons. Although I doubt that this the case it is worth to check.

At the same time there is a need for more information about how did that start or if you have done any physical changes to the computer.

Another thing you may do is connect it to an external monitor and see if the same thing happens to the external monitor. If that is the case then I think there is something wrong with your display card.

Hi this is prince here from Bangladesh. i have a laptop that is acer travel mate 420. a few days ago its display is not working properly. some times it turn into various color. so what can i do?

Hi Prince, has your laptop experienced a squeeze or fall recently? I have a few suggestions. Plug another monitor into the VGA or DVI connection on your laptop. See if you are getting the same problem. If everything is working fine on the external monitor you would have eliminated the drivers being the problem. I suggest getting the LCD display changed. If your laptop is under warranty, you can get this done for free. However, if it is not under warranty you may have to replace it either yourself or take it to a local Acer specialist. If you chose to install the new display yourself, there are handy tutorials on removing and installing the screen on the Acer website. I have noticed that many times the Acer TravelMate Notebooks have experienced display issues. I hope you get your problem resolved soon.
Thanks for using!!

Can't work projector with computer.

When you connect the data projector to the laptop, power up the projector then the laptop. The laptop will automatically switch the video to the projector.
If you power up the laptop first the you need to switch the video output to the external video port by press and hold the Fn key and then press one of the functions keys that has a screen symbole on it, by repeating this again you can toggle between the projector and the LCD screen, even having the both displayed at the same time.
If you still have a problem, then the screen resolution is set too high and the video won't display on the projector, reduce the screen resolution to 1024x768 to see if it works, if not you may need to reduce it further.

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.
