    Yes. right from boot up, when the acer screen shows it is dimmed then the OS loads up normally but noting shows on the screen. When I press fn-f6 my desktop appears briefly sometimes for two seconds sometimes for a minute and then goes black again. I have used a different monitor and everything is fine. All the settings via the control panel are fine. People are saying it is the backlight LED that is faulty. If that is true what can I do about it? Thanks

Hi, Does it do this in any part of when loading up for example in bios and in main windows etc. Have you checked graphics card or onboard graphics drivers but reistalling, tried a different monitor, changed the keyboard. Check the keyboard setting aswell and display settig in control panel and let me know the outcome.Thanks

I have the acer aspire 5536-5112 black screen


I solve this using Fn + F6, using a 5536 model. Just press Fn + F6, keep holding it and hit the power button, wait for about 5 or 7 seconds, release the Fn and F6 keys. thank you so much guys!

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Sony vaio tr3a screen is black, but safemode lettering shows when I reboot with f 8 held down so I know the monitor is working but when I choose safemode and the computer tries to get into windows...


Hi ponotoc2,
On my acer I have some F buttons with little symbols on, I know that if I press FN + F6 it will switch my laptop screen on and off, I also can use FN + F5 to swap between monitors.
These could be different on a sony though and I can't remember what F numbers you need to press, I've seen some people say FN + F4 but im not 100% sure on this..
The symbol you should be looking for could look like 2 boxes one dark one and one coloured to simulate brightness.
I hope this helps

Screen goes black, turn it on with fn+f6 but goes black again after 2 secs


right click on the screen, go to properties, screen saver, power settings, and set turn off monitor to desired setting. If that is not the problem then there might be a loose connector inside the pc. or another thing could be that the screen itself is failing but hopefully its not.

Get my screen back after connecting a projector


Fn + F5 toggles the display output.....but when you run a projector or other device, the backlight shuts off and to turn it back on, the combination is Fn + F6.

Black screen after windows xp screen nothing else


Sometimes the function keys get depressed by accident and it takes away your display. Press the FN+F5 and FN+F6 three times each and see if your display comes back on.

My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open


Change the settings from the display settings panel. (Right click on the desktop and go to display settings)
You should see 2 monitors graphically represented there. 
You can make the monitor that is greyed out active by right clicking on the monitor, and selecting active.

My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open


Hi,
I think you're trying to output the screen to external monitor right ? So when you press Fn+F6 this will output to external monitor only but if you do it again it will output to both (External and you LCD) and if you repeat the step again you're back to normal.
goodluck,takecare.
