Re: white screen

This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.

Re: white screen

Many Acer laptops have problems with cable connecting computer to LCD screen. You can start by checking if monitor cable is disconnected or badly connected (My cable was badly connected, in Acer Travelmate 7520). In order to do this, first you have to remove plastic panel between monitor and keyboard. It's same panel which usually cover hinges. Carefully remove it, from right to left, start from upside of the panel. (Atleast with Travelmate 7520) Once you have removed it you should see some wires that go trough hinges to the monitor. Monitor cable is the biggest one of them, and has wide connector with many pins. Now you can start the laptop (if it's not on already). When computer has started, just disconnect the monitor cable, clean it and connect it again, hopefully it starts working. If that didn't help, try to wiggle the connector and cable little bit and watch if anything happens on monitor. If not, problem might still be with the monitor cable, but at other end of the cable... Which is little bit harder to test, but worth it before buying new LCD screen or computer. If both ends of cable are connected properly and it still wont work, problem might be with the cable itself. It's not expensive so I would buy new one and try with that before buying new LCD screen.
I hope this helps somebody, good luck.

My acer Travelmate 242lc will not power on

First think , has it been dropped, jarred, banged, get the idea? Does it continue to blink, the HDD? Do you see a "ghost image" in the monitor in a bright light? Do you here sounds? You say "nothing else happens", meaning the light stops blinking? Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to boot noemally.

Hi there my acer aspire 4315 laptop turns all white when i turn on my laptop?? i dont know why this does this??? but i have sent it to a expert but they didnt fix it at all. i often fold the screen down...

At least you know the back-light works. There is a ribbon cable that connects the video to the LCD screen from the lower part of the laptop - sometimes it wears out because it is not properly seated, then it breaks. Try connecting an external monitor to the VGA port and see if you get the same symptom. If it works ok, then that ribbon cable is broke.

My acer laptop screen turns white while working

Try reinstall the video drivers as it looks like an issue with the video adpater. To do so:

Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Restore> install Application & Drivers> Select the appropriate Video driver (Intel, NTI etc as per your computer spec) and install it. Restart the computer and check, the issue should be resolved. If not, then I am sorry I bet the computer needs repair.

White screen on Acer Travelmate 7720

most likely you have a faulty LCD screen, the only option u have is to replaced it or u can use a external LCD screen to act as screen for your laptop. you'll be needing a VGA cable to connect your laptop to any LCD screen available.
