Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi I purchased this Acer Aspire 3100 laptop in November. It was a Christmas gift so it wasn't even opened until December! The last several weeks, off and on, the screen acts up. It is like the old picture tube tv's when the picture tube is ready to go. Vertical and horizontal lines and colored waves going through it as well. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

And that's not a new feature? what you're experiencing is pre video chip failure mode, OR the lcd screen is totally unhappy.

it is a hardware problem.if a blue screen appears on the screen while it is restarted, then try troubleshooting on the code mentioned it.
if no blue screen is seen, then the problem is with the motherboard id SMPS.you might have to replace any one of them.

Please Please Please change your charger right away .. I Got 2 Acer laptop last week and both had same probelm ..if there would be any fluctuations in voltage from your adaptor it will fry up your laptop and you will be in big trouble.

I have acer aspire laptop purchased from dabs feb 2007 hard drive crashed 2 weeks out of warranty, i have put in new hard drive, how much would it cost to puirchase the discs for operating system serial...


Hi,

If your Aspire laptop has a Microsoft sticker at the bottom with the Product Key, it is not necessary for you to re-purchase CD installer of the Operating System. You could try borrowing from friends their XP Pro CD installers or even an OEM and simply use that. When asked for the CD key, use what is printed in the aforementioned sticker.

As long as the motherboard/entire machine is not replaced, then this would be an acceptable alternative. Should you still wish to purchase an Windows XP Pro SP2 installer CD, it would roughly cost USD 60.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

No Sound Now on Computer


Might be trivial, but try the volume controls, that little speaker icon on the Windows task bar.
