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).
