Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
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.

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.
