Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
My screen went black but it flickers back on when i turn the power on or open the laptop
ive had my laptop for only a month when it did this
Get a strong flashlight and shine in at at angle toward the screen.
If you can see the image, which you probably can, then your laptop's backlight is malfunctioning.
Since you've only had it for a month, check with the retailer or manufacturer to see if it is still under warranty. Hopefully it is and you can get it replaced.
But before you send it back, if it has a DVI, HDMI or VGA port on it (most likely it does, unless it's an ultra-slim model), connect a PC monitor to it and turn it on. You may have to press a certain key combination like Fn-F4 or Fn-F8 to switch between the laptop display and external display, but hopefully the screen will display on the external display.
From there you can use your laptop as necessary to back up any data that you need before you send it in for service.
