Acer extensa 5420

I have had my acer extensay 5420 for 7 days. It will black out for no reason. Is this fixable or do I need to return it? If I return it do I get the same model OR something totally different.

    I also have a extensa 5420 that I purchased last month. It has gone to a blank screen a couple of times. I could hold the power switch until it powered down and then turn it back on. it would come back on ok. I have talked to the store where I purchased it(Best Buy). They told me to bring it back in and they will check it out.

This problem I have seen as well and the cause I found was the video drivers. I was able to fix the issue by following the information found on this site http://thoughtsfrommylife.com/article-663-Acer_Extensa_5420_Black_Screen_On_Startup

Could it be that your power saving is set to be too aggressive? From the control panel you should be able to check the power properties, and change the settings if that is what is causing the problem. So, for example, if the system were set to hibernate is 5 minutes, you could increase that to 20 min - or whatever is most comfortable for you.

If the power properties are not the problem, it could be the battery, the power cable, or some other serious system issue. I would certainly get it fixed while you can still return the machine - and it might be a sign that that particular machine might not be for you.

If you have another monitor you can hook that up to the blue connector( VGA) This is usually on the side or on the back. If you get a picture then your internal video might be bad.

The screen on my acer extensa 5420 went black how can I trouble shoot to see what it is?


Good day sir/maam, when your LCD becomes black, the backlight of the LCD screen just went bad. this is caused by the failure of the inverter circuit board and/or lamp, at this point you don't have much choice but to bring it to your dealer for possible inverter replacement, at the moment if you want to see your display, you can plug in an external monitor temporarily. you can activate it by pressing Fn + (locate on your keyboard a picture of a monitor with the same color as your Fn key). hope this helps.
