Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
My laptop is a little over a year old. About three months ago I came home and the screen was black. Anytime I turn the computer on the screen will light up very dimly and then go back to black. I have it hooked up to one of my old desktop monitors and the other parts of the laptop are functioning fine except for the screen. Before this "blackout" I had occasion problems where the screen would have light colored vertical lines going all the way across the screen. I would just reboot and the screen would be fine for a few months. I do notice that even with the screen black it will still do that occasionally because it shows up on my external monitor. Is there anyone out there that may have any insight or advice as to what may be happening?
It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.
