Acer Aspire 3100 Laptop Monitor will not turn on

Laptop monitor does not turn on. Problem just occurred this evening. Computer froze up, so I did a hard re-boot. When I powered it back up, the monitor was black, though the laptop was on (green light on power button, fan).

I tried to connect the laptop to my desktop monitor. It remained black.

I also noticed that the left side of the keyboard (just below the keys) was very hot to the touch. Battery was not hot (located under right upper quadrant of keyboard).

Any help appreciated.

    computer was slow to open email so I tried a restart using control/ alt/delete. The screen went blank but remained turned on. The backdrop is blue and the pointer is visible; machine will not turn off or go back on.

    I have an Acer Aspire 1692 and I have the same problem. In the middle of using the laptop, the screen became all pixelated and then went blank. Even when I turn it on the screen remains black.

    Can anybody help with this problem?

1. Mainboard failed
2. Vga adapter failed

I wouldnt be suprised if the vga failed, my acer broke down on me 2 times, on the 3rd time it was too much and I sold the laptop.

    parts seem to fail within 12 months in acer laptops..

    www.acerparts.com for replacement parts
    but first it should be analysed witch part is broken
    if you dont hear any beeps then most likely the motherboard is bad.

Try Screen switch function to switch from Internal screen to External monitor to Both.
Normally FN + F4 (on Compaq or FN + F7 on Lenovo check the Function symbols on your Keyboard: allow few seconds after command to refresh configuration.
try Safe mode also. to check if display shows in VGA format.

Go into your display settings. It should show at least two different monitors. Your laptop monitor and the external one your plugged into. Click on the external one and click on the two check boxes. Click on extend the desktop into this monitor first. Then click on this is my main monitor. Reboot your computer and it should be on your external monitor.

Acer aspire one - its died!!!


If it was just the hard drive, I would expect the video to come on and say something like "no boot device."
However, since you went through the steps here and see absolutely no video (even none on an external monitor), I would suspect a motherboard failure.
Be sure that when you hooked up an external monitor that you pushed the Fn key and the appropriate special function key (maybe F7) that switches between the laptop and external monitor. If you have done that (pushed the combination several times to switch displays), then you can be pretty certain your video card (if a separate card) may be bad.
I'm not really sure if this machine has a separate video card. The specs say it's a ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. This leads me to believe it may be a separate card.
If it's just the card that went bad, you can replace it. Otherwise, the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Good luck. You can do that, but if you're not confident, you best take the machine to a repair shop.

Acer 3100 screen wont turn on.


Have you tried hooking an external monitor to the system? If that works you may have accidently switched the screen to an outside monitor. Or you could have a bad connection. Try starting in safe mode and see if it works.

Hi Mikey,

Bottom row of keys, you will see on marked Fn. It is a specific color. Hold that and look at the top row of Keys. You should see one with a laptop screen, and a monitor on it. Tap the key once.
Each time you tap it, while holding the Fn (Function) key, it changes your optons. Once it will set your display to Laptop only, again will set your display to Monitor only, and again will set your display options to both. Play with the key combonation, and you may have to reboot with each tap.
Good luck.
