Here is what you need to do. Check for any external device attached to the computer, if so, unplug all of them. Try restarting the computer. If still not booting, then as soon as you restart the computer keep on tapping F2 button, it will enter BIOS setup utility, Press F9 and then press F10 for confirmation press "Yes". Restart the computer. It should take care of the issue.

My acer aspire 4315 lcd is faulty...i can see in it but its so dark


kezler_0007,

I have found in the 8 years of being online, and providing answers/solutions to people's computer problems; that coming across, and trying to explain the answer/solution, is the hardest thing to do.

It appears I have failed you

Let's try again;

1) Perusing the internet, I look at what LCD screens are offered, (Aspire 4315 series of Notebook PC's), and see what backlighting is offered.

I have seen LCD screen examples offered, that seem to be CCFL backlighting.
I DO have to know however, WHAT style of backlighting is used for YOUR laptop.

Do Not want to make a mistake here, because the mistake could cost you five times as much.

You buy a not needed LCD screen, about $100, and only needed a screen Inverter; about $18.

!O_O!?

IF, your laptop states LED backlighting, THEN the only option is to buy the entire LCD screen.
With LED backlighting, the LED backlighting is incorporated into the LCD screen assembly.

There is no simply replace the LED backlighting.

With a laptop that uses CCFL for backlighting, the first thing to do is replace the screen Inverter.
90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Allow me to state the primer over again, now that I have more room;

An LCD screen does Not produce light,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NA_Optical/Systems/BehindTheScenes/Optics101/

(Click on the monitor icon)

Therefore an LCD screen needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), Or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)

When I state series, I mean a LOT of LED's. They are incorporated into the LCD screen assembly.
(You see from the above link that an LCD screen is an assembly)

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height,

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/12/09/replace-laptop-backlight-ccfl-lamp/

View the last 8 photos to see what an average CCFL looks like.

Know this also; A CCFL is a Fluorescent bulb.
This means it has MERCURY in it.
VERY dangerous if the bulb breaks!
Mercury is POISON to the human body.

IF, it is determined that the laptop uses CCFL/s for a Backlight, -> AND the CCFL/s are bad, I implore you to have a pro change it/them.
The other option would be to replace the LCD screen.
The CCFL is incorporated into the LCD screen assembly.

HOWEVER, I still go with the screen Inverter is bad.
(IF, the laptop uses CCFL for a Backlight)

3) http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go to the 'paragraph' that starts with Aspire 1200. (1200 in Blue)
Drop down to the 4th line, (3810T in blue), scroll across, and click on - 4315

This is a free Service Manual.
It is in PDF file form.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name (4315) it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.
(The file is downloading in the background)

[May be on my end, but it took 44 seconds just now, and using a medium speed DSL connection. Usually takes 10 to 12 seconds. Just letting you know so you do not think the link doesn't work ]

LCD Module Disassembly Process - Page 86

Hmmm, also states Inverter Board. (screen Inverter)

Removing the LCD Module is on Page 71.

4) NOT an Acer Aspire 4315 series of Notebook PC; Aspire 3810T. Posted so you would be able to get a more 'Hands on' idea, of working on your laptop,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-broken-screen-acer-aspire-3810t-laptop/

Test the screen Inverter before replacing?
IF you have a sensitive multimeter, you can. Otherwise IMHO the choice is to just replace the screen Inverter.
Parts changing I know, and I abhor it; but if it is your only choice?

Where in the Philippines to order from? Do not know.
Suggest using the internet.

Acer red light battery


1) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-replace-inverter-board-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/

Yes, I know. Aspire 5100 series of Notebook PC, not the Aspire 5230 series. I am looking at the Service Manual for the Aspire 5230 series right now, and the above link is a good basic pictorial guide.

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Drop down to the subheading - Aspire 1200. (1200 in Blue)
Go down to the 6th line, scroll across, and left-click on 5230 in blue.
(Takes few seconds before the first page comes up.
In the PDF file page number box at the top, go to Page 119)

2) If you mess up with the connection of the LCD Panel Cable, to the LCD Panel, (On back), your laptop will not power up.
Those tiny contact pins on that cable's connector, must line up exactly, and be plugged in tightly to the LCD Panel.
Not plugged in tightly? You won't see it visually. You have to physically check.

Also use the old tape that was there, to tape over the connector once installed, on the back of the LCD Panel.
Ripped it all the way off? Oops! Use some new tape. (Not duct tape, scotch tape, or medical tape. Box tape with strands in it)

3) Connector of LCD Panel Cable, connected tightly into motherboard?

4) Screen Inverter wires connected? Connectors are keyed differently from each other, BUT, are they connected correctly?

5) Why was the LCD Panel replaced? Damaged? Did the LCD Panel Cable receive damage? Did you perform a cursory visual inspection of it's sheath, at least? Sheath showed ANY damage, did you perform a continuity check of each wire in the cable, with a multimeter set to Ohm's? (LCD Panel Cable unplugged from motherboard, and LCD Panel, of course)

6) If there was damage, did the screen Inverter receive damage?

7) Connect the LCD Panel Cable's ground wire/s back to THE ground screw/s? Good bright clean connection area for those eyelet ground terminal/s?

8) Did you crossover the new LCD Panel to the old LCD Panel, to make sure it is a direct replacement?
NOTE*
A screen Inverter, and an LCD screen, (LCD Panel for Acer), are a MATCHED unit.

9) AC adapter plugged into power, and plugged into laptop, along with the battery?

Post back in a Comment, and if none of the above is the problem, we'll go on from there.

When switched on the screen has a blue background and a series of multi-colured vertical lines in the centre covering approx half the screen. can get o further than this.still has seven months of warranty...


sounds to me like a broken lcd screen. Check if it works on external monitor, if it does the problem is your screen. If it is the same on an external monitor then the fault is with the onboard graphics card. This should be fixed under warranty

Screen blinks and turns blue


This sounds like it could be related to Malware. I would suggest three things. A malware scan, a maintenance cleaning, and checking your startup applications.

To run a malware scan goto: www.trendmicro.com/housecall

And follow the instructions on the page, let this run, until the results dialogue window pops up, this make take a while. 1-3+ hours. Just let it run, you do not need to attend it once it tells you it is scanning.

For maintance cleaning, visit this site to download an application called CCleaner
http://www.filehippo.com/download/file/df09062a5bdcfd3a0a0cf31f7117c0cb566fe5b698d89848911da4e434cb72f5/

After these steps.
To adjust what programs you have starting up in the beginning:

Start > Run > Type "MSCONFIG" > Click the Startup Tab then un-check any program entries that you don't need starting up in the beginning. This does not remove them from your computer, just from starting up in the begining and taking resources in the background. When you need the program, you can simply click on its link in your start menu. It is your choice what you keep and what to remove.

Let us know if you run into any bumps
