Slept on my Aspire BY ACCIDENT cracked display. After installing new one, my laptop will not boot with video? cable plugged into inverter. When it does boot, screen is black. Not dim, dead. External display works but touchpad dead. Went to a technician and changed the data cable three times, the inverter three times, and the LCD three times in all combinations. Screen never lit and laptop only powered on with inverter unplugged. No image ever on any screen. Anything we missed? It does work on external monitor.

Re: Aspire 5102 WLMi display replacement
Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages. Good Luck!

The monitor will display out of range message because the PC video resolution is too high for the monitor to display, the new software may have changed or corrupt the video seting, try booting up in safe mode (hit f8 while computer booting up) and set the video resolution to 640 x 480, then reboot in regular mode, then reset the resolution to the native resolution of this monitor which is 1280x1024@60Hz.
It sound like power on the monitor if it is this what you need to do.
Change the 2SC5707 transistors and electrolytic caps in the inverter section. Also check the 3A picofuse, and resolder all transformer pins. Are buy a new inverter board,this brand of moniyor is a Dell monitor.
Hope this help you.
That's pretty funny (apart from the suffering)! It's doing exactly what you asked and displaying nothing to that monitor. Even if you safe-boot, the VGA thing might try to honor the setting (though it shouldn't if you have WinXP SP3.) Booting to a command prompt 'only' from the safe boot choices and importing some regedit settings from another machine's video might just do the trick. (As well might adding a 2nd monitor on some machine and seeing what changes in the registry using a monitor program for that.... Some 'display' key probably contains 'disabled 1' instead of 'disabled 0'.... )
If you can get a LiveCD or bootable USB key of any sort (WinXP, Knoppix, Kevin's Rescue CD, etc.) you can probably just enjoy graphics settings by booting to that, and edit the registry or use WINCONFIG a little more freely than Safe Boot offers.
Sounds like your video adapter settings have been wedged. If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use the following steps.
1) Boot the laptop into safe mode. Boot into safe mode with networking support if possible. This can be done by tapping the F8 key as the computer first turns on.
2) Once you are at the Desktop, right click on My Computer and select Manage.
3) In the window that appears, select Device Manager from the menu on the left.
4) Find Display Adapters on the right and click the plus sign. This will list the video adapter that you have.
NOTE: WRITE this down EXACTLY. You may need to go and get drivers for this. Seeing this is an older model, I doubt you'll need it, but better to be safe then sorry.
5) Go to your manufacturers support web site and download these drivers. You may not need them, but better to be safe then sorry.
NOTE: Skip step 5 if you did not boot with network support or cannot get to the Internet. This can be done from normal mode.
6) Right click on the display adpater and choose un-install. Hit OK on the window that appears and reboot the machine when the process is done.
7) The machine will take longer than usual to boot, as Windows XP is re-discovering the video adapter and resetting everything to the defaults. When it is done booting, the screen may look weird since the settings are now the defaults. You can the set them to what you want by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Then go to the settings tab.
8) IF it did not re-discover the video adapter (this can be confirmed through the device manager), then go ahead and install the drivers. Windows Update will most likely also have the drivers.
