1. Check you batteries to see if it is fully charged.
2. Then check the power adapter to see if you are getting a charge to the battery.
3. It sounds like the battery is not charge or has a dead cell in it.

Laptop screen flickering


The video inverter may be failing, BUT...

More than likely the backlight is failing. If you can still see a VERY faint image on the screen this is almost certainly the problem.This is a very difficult fix. I recommend a replacement LCD.

It MIGHT be a bad lcd cable. With the laptop on, slowly open it from closed to open and back again and see if there is a position where the laptop screen does not flicker or turn off, [or if it does turn off if it turns back on.

If the screen goes COMPLETELY black then your GPU is failing.

When I turn my computer on the monitor constantly flickers on and off. After about an hour this stops the the screen goes black about five times, but after that it works fine?


You need to download the latest graphices drivers and get the update for the BIOS.
If the screen flickers in the BIOS screen as well that means the sys has to be repaired for the screen.

Acer AL1716 monitor flickers


i Have the same problem, this screen is used on the spare computer we have in a loft conversion and the room does get rather cold, Warming the screen up with a fan heater for a couple of minutes gets rid of the problem. When the fault occurs the buttons on the front to adjust the picture quality don't work they just turn off the monitor.
