Question about Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Notebook

1 Answer

Screen went out on my Acer Aspire 5102WLMi

Hi when I start the computer up the display shows nothing. I get 3 P.O.S.T codes one long beep and 2 short beeps. Windows boots and all but I cant see anything. My guess is the Video card died out but I only had this for a couple months and never let it over heat.

Is there anything I can do to fix it to get the display to show BIOS or something or am I S.O.L

Hi,

Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.Video (Mono/CGA Display Circuitry) issue.Try to disconnect/connect the video card. If nothing happens, there's a possiblity that the problem is with the LCD cables or the LCD itself.

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

Acer Aspire 9303wsmi display problem, 1 long beep, 2 short. HELP!


Hi,
What you hear are bios beeps. They signal you that something is wrong. These beep's vary by the manufacturer of the bios chip that you have.

You can find out what bios you have by looking at your manual. The common cause for one long and two short beeps is a video problem.

Either the video chip on your mobo is shot, or your video card needs attention.

Acer aspire 9300 black screen (display adapter)


I have been fixing computers that has long beeps and short ones. It is usually attributed to memory problem connection. Open the memory compartment at the back of the PC then detach the memory card. Clean with cloth softly enough not to destroy the circuit board or a pencil eraser to clean-up dust that caused the connection blockade. Reconnect after cleaning.

the vga board has failed, its a very common problem in acer laptops, you can get a replacement part from www.acerparts.com im not sure if they ship into us but for europe thats where I get my parts.
my acers vga failed two times, ones within warranty and 12months after that, I have to say that acer products are really bad quality, I'm not sure about the latest models but from what I've seen the vga chipsets have real issues with the motherboards and keep failing over and over again.


I have not looked inside your model but the vga is either integrated into the motherboard = that means the repair will cost the whole motherboard, better to buy a new one.

if your model has a removeable vga like mine does, then you can consider changeing it to a new one. contact acer parts.

One of the covers in the bottom is the memory, one is network and last one I don't remember.
here are the contact details if your acer is out of warranty
http://www.acerparts.com/contact_us.php

The parts for your model are at http://www.acerparts.com/index.php?cPath=561_562_1064

you will have to contact acer parts directly, it may be that the vga is build into the motherboard or then the vga parts are not listed.


Hope this may help;


Regards,
VOTIT
