Could you take a picture of the screen with a camera?
That would be very helpfull to confirm but im 90% sure your
vga card is about to fail soon.

My acer 1522's video failed two times and on the 3rd time I didnt replace it anymore and just sold the laptop.

the parts failed within 12 months.

    Seems your model doesnt have a removeable card so you would need to replace the whole motherboard



    the motherboard costs around 350 usd. you would need to take the laptop apart and put it back together.. not a easy task if you have never done it before.



    You could take it to a professional.

    I've noticed from experience that acer laptops are very unrealiable and fail even within the warranty time,, if you still have warranty, its going to save you this time. Next time your going to have to pay.



    If I where you, Id get the laptop warranty repaired and then sell it for a decent price on ebay for example.



    Id spend the money on a more reliable brand, Sony makes great laptops but the quality does cost.

ACER apire 5050 screen keeps going blank/freezing


Hold down the "Fn" Key and press the "F4" Key, wait a min, press the Enter key on the keyboard... Do this when it happens, the problem is the ribbon cable in the laptop that goes to the screen is loose, If you want to fix permanently, send in for repair to Acer if under warranty.

Blue Screen of Death


You'll need to setup the Acer laptop to boot from CD-ROM. Push either the F2 or F10 button when booting your laptop and it should bring-up the configuration management interface. Go through the options and confirm that Boot From CD-ROM is at the top of the list on bootable devices.

Next, you'll need your original Windows XP CD that came with the Laptop. Put it in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot your laptop. You will be given two options: 1) Re-install Windows or 2) Repair the existing Windows Installation. I recommend that you repair the existing Windows Installation as this will not destroy and data or device drivers that are install on the laptop.

Good Luck!

Acer Aspire 5050 - Unable To Boot PLEASE HELP.


There is a very hig possibility that your Hard Drive developed somebad sectors. What I suggest is try to remove the hard drive and use it as an external drive using a 2nd PC and back up all your imporatnt files immediately. After making sure that all needed data has been extracted, try to reformat the Hard drive and if it is still functional, re-install your OS.

Most of this cases, I highly recommend that you replace your hard drive with a new one.
