Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge. Battery charger charges the battery only when the computer is switched off and it isn't possible to run the computer using the charger - even if leaving the charger plugged in, power is supplied only from the battery. New battery/charger/something else? Suggestions welcome!

Monitor: if the inverters were blown, you would be unable to use clamps as a workaround. I suspect a lose or broken contact to the display wafer caused by rough handling of the laptop. This is delicate stuff, you cannot repair without specialized tools and usually its simpler and cheaper to swap the panel for a new one.

Charger: try to remove the battery and connect the charger. Check if the laptop starts now. If yes, the battery probably reached its end of life and drains so much power during inefficient charge that the power supply has not enough extra strength to run the laptop on top. Only one hour of run time hints to a degraded battery, too.
Replace the battery with a new one and check if the problem persists.

If the laptop does not run with charger and without battery, the power regulation in the laptop is fried.

Since there is more than one defect already (replacement batteries are not cheap, too), you should consider to contact Acer repair services. In my experience they provide reasonable priced repairs; they give you a quotation for a small fee before they actually repair the thing, so you can decide how to proceed.

Check if they have a repair site in your vicinity. I went to Acer Hong Kong in 2005 with similar problems and a few days later picked up my machine, repaired to my satisfaction and with a full report what was wrong.

That sounds like the display itself is faulty.
To check the display, plug in an external monitor, if the picture is complete, your display is probably faulty. Replace the display, (ebay). If the display is still faulty, the VGA processor may be faulty. Replace motherboard/notebook.

Monitor flickering and rolling


Thanks for the git back: #1 I hooked up a second monitor (depressed fn+f5) and was able to view everything fine. No problem in any area. Ran Some security checks (malwarebytes,checked windows updates,Secunia PSI,and a virus scan. #2 I opened up the monitor and checked for possible loose connections. #3 brought up the graphics display and checked that 60 hrz was set and correct. #4 ran a backup of all my data from my other monitor,and I made the assumption that it was a bad monitor and I might save some money if I just bought a new laptop.Would like to here your comments.

LCD screen looks like bad TV reception


if the display returns to normal when you press the bezel at on end means there is a bad connection to the inverter behind the bezel itself or the inverter is ready to give up the ghost.
you can attempt to dismantlethe laptop and remone the lid or in some cases just unscrew the bezel and remove the plastic cover, the inverter is at the bottom of the display you can't miss it

hope this helps

Lcd display


Try connecting your laptop to an external monitor.Connect it with a vga cable to your monitor and press Fn+ monitor key(I don't know what it is for acer) to switch displays.If there are no lines on the external monitor then the problem is due to the notebook lcd.If there are lines then it is due to a driver.Reinstalling the driver should fix that then.

Display has lines that run through it


they can be horizontal. I think your graphics card on your motherboard is bad. you should consider sending it to acer so they can replace it with a new one.
