My aspire one laptop will turn on but after the blue screen it turns completely BLACK and i can only see the mouse????? HELP

Theres a few things you can do, just try taking the battery out an leaving it out...or in a more "worse" scenareo this could be a case that your screen has burned up from being left on for to long, exposed to water..anything on the lines of that. What I suggest doing is taking it to best buy an talking to Geek Squad about it.

My screen on my dell inspiron 1525 goes dim after a few short minutes and while its in i need to replace the whole screen or just a light or what?

you can try adjusting the screen brightness manually by pressing the blue FN key plus the up/down arrow keys. brighter is FN+UP ARROW. if you have a program called quickset open that and there should be an option under power options/settings. if neither of those solutions fixes the problem then the problem is the screen. a geek squad (1-800-geek-squad) will repair or replace the screen for you. thank you for using fixya!

I agree. Never ever ever ever ever take your computer to Geek Squad. I don't know how many times I have to go to people's homes and correct something GS did or they tell me they reformatted their drive, losing all their data without telling them first, for something so simple that could have been fixed inside of 15 minutes. And they charge way above industry standard and most of their techs have had no formal training.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as FixYa. Thank you.

Do your store staff enjoy tormenting handicapped people?

Talk to the store's Geek Squad Manager and have the tech involved taken off the problem. There's literally hundreds of "replacement wires" to be potentially worked with.

Go back to best buy. the closest one to you. and see about yoru exteneded warranty. Toshiba dont deal with the extended warrentys.A 3rd party company is looking after it for you (best buy) i guess geek squad.. If the warrenty is out and you gotta pay 600 dollors to replace your computer motherboard. all depending on what you use it for an entry level laptop is close to 600 dollors great for web browseing and office use school, some games.
