Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen went from Red to Black

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 and just days before the warranty ended the screen had a red tint. This lasted for a week or two, but seemed to not get worse, then one day when I turned it on it made a pop noise and went black. I can faintly see the stuff on my screen but only if you have it positioned just right. I already had the backlight replaced and still nothing. the red tints gone, but still not bright. if i hold fn+f6 it will flash for a second normal then its gone. Please help I need this for school!

It Needs a new Backlight period.(Red hue is clue before complete failure). 15.4" Widescreen? Weve replaced hundreds and some can be a pain.. Run on external monitor until you can get it in for repair.

There are a ton of businesses that can replace these besides us where are you located?

Acer Aspire 5100 laptop's screen remains black at start-up


This is probably a hardware issue with the monitor. Just to make sure, uninstall, and reinstall the monitor's driver. If that doesn't fix it, it's a hardware issue.

You will have to either take it to a shop, or contact the manufacturer (your computer should be under warranty if you've had it for less than a year).

Acer aspire 5100 - screen is turned off, cant turn it back on


The bios beep codes indicate the video card is not working, so you won't see anything on the screen.

Your video card is either dead, or is not contacting the board correctly.
If you are keen to open it up I will offer instructions to assist you. But in reality, your safest bet is to take it to a laptop shop and get them to do it. There are a lot of tiny screws in these things.

Acer Aspire 5100-5840 USB Problems


Is your laptop still under warranty? I would go to the manufacturer first if it is.
If not:
the system clock is run by the CMOS battery. When low will cause a host of problems. Change it and let me know if this fixes your problem.
