Hey there everett 403, my first suggestion would be that your video card is malfunctioning. You have not mentioned if you installed one. If you have one installed, begin by removing it and switching your monitor connection to the onboard port. If this works to get the screen working, then next step is to replace the video card. If it is still not working, try removing your ram. Check it for damage of any sort. If good, reinstall and ensure to seat properly. I would also check the light on your motherboard. If it flashes, there may be a problem with your board, such as burnt capacitors. If these solutions do not solve, please include info on configuration and peripherals, and anything different you have been doing with your machine as of late. Good Luck!

Aspire One AO725-0635 powers up but screen is black with white lines. Not dropped, just happened suddenly. We powered down, removed and put back battery. Still monitor black with white lines. Help! ...


Lets step through some trouble shooting. Can you plug in an external computer monitor? If this works then it is cable connections to the notebook monitor. If a normal computer monitor does the same thing it is potentially video settings or hardware. Since there is some kind of output then the video card is outputting so it us not likely the video card has failed not impossible just less likely. If the external monitor works and the laptop one still fritzed check the video settings are right. If video settings are ok then it could also be cables issue on the laptop. Faulty RAM chip can also cause the problem as described this is also worth checking.

Dell monitor screen suddenly went white. Can it be fixed?


I have a strong suspicion that you have burned a capacitor or two on the monitor. You will need to bring this in to have it serviced as it will require the monitor to be opened up and new capacitors replaced/resoldered.

Monitor works ok then suddenly loose picture(black screen) turn monitor off then turn it back on works for approx 5 secs then goes back to black screen


there are many reason why a monitor suddenly turned off then back to work again , over use may over heat that cause the soled parts on the printed board of your CRT go loosen , try to re sold it, sometimes your PC might stop viewing so the monitor automatically shot off stby mode , loose connection due to basted parts , capacitors,power regulators,resistors , even the cables also might be.

I was just using my mom's acer aspire when suddenly a blue screen appeared that stated it was preparing for a crash dump. The computer will turn on and sound like it's starting up, but then it stops and...


from what yu say if i infer correctly then

when powered on the system powers up properly and the HDD and CPU are running fine but there is no display on the screen and is black,

first try the this step, try connecting an external monitor to the VGA port (generally in blue color) and see if you have a Display on the external monitor.

the black screen generally means that either the Display section is not getting power or the invertor board is damaged and this needs professional help in fixing / replacing it.

hope could be of help

My monitor will only blink a black or white screen.


check the warranty online for your screen.. go the the acer support website and look up warranties, and it will ask for a really long number on the back of your screen, and it will tell how long the warranty is good for and what to do with it.
Mine is doing the same thing. flashes white then black and that is all
