Blank screen the screen has been working for over a year and all of a sudden went blank its not my pc as i plugged my pc into another screen and worked fine.... the standby flashing stops flashing when i...


Since you have tried another monitor with your computer, then we can only assume that your LCD monitor had gone bad.
If the light is green but you can't see anything on the screen, then most likely the backlight has gone bad. Unless you want to take the monitor apart, I would suggest buying a new monitor.

M305-S4815 screen went blank and will not come back on. Tried recovery disc but nothing appears to be happening on screen or HD light. What's next to try?


Try plugging a monitor ( if you have one ) into the back plug. If your screen comes up on the monitor then your screen went bad.

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank


Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.

Blank Screen


Be sure that the power cable and the video cable are plugged into your monitor, the power cable is plugged into a good outlet, and the video cable is plugged into your computer. It's possible that you simply have a loose cable.

If everything is installed correctly, and if the screen is completely blank (no "cable disconnected" or "test mode" messages), then it sounds like your monitor is simply dead. Since there was a heavy wind storm recently, it was probably hit by a power surge. If you don't already, I recommend that you use a surge protector for all digital equipment.

Try unplugging the power cord to your computer tower, click the power button to drain the capacitors in the mother board then plug the power cord back in and try to boot up. Has helped me repair several similar black screen problems. Chuck Housecall101@aol.com

Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.
