Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.
dear lcd desplay are same in every model just you need the same size of both. means if you have 15' then you fit only 15'.and if you buy your model lcd there is no any problem because right now problem with cericuit of lcd
Try an external monitor. If you get a picture on that, then you have a problem with your LCD screen and it must be replaced. If an external monitor doesn't work, then it's the video card on your computer. If you have video built into the motherboard, that will have to be replaced.
its either going to be a problem with the lcd, inverter or output from the motherboard probably.
Best thing to do is to try a different lcd with a different lcd cable, then if that doesn't work, then try to get a different inverter, if that doesn't work then you'll know for sure its the output coming from the motherboard.
Alot of times the LCD's go bad but the lcd cables go bad cause they are flimsy and the wires break inside.
Look on Ebay cause you can easily get these parts cheaper then most places.
Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.
If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
you can try pulling the screen apart and re-seating the ribbon cable, but the lcd might be broken, or one of the controller lcd chips might either be cracked or broken. Trying to reseat the lcd ribbon cable might help, but if there is a visible crack in the screen- you will need a new screen.
