Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3371 Notebook
Could be a dead screen or bad screen connection.
Try connecting it to a slave screen using the VGA connector and "Fn" keys. If that doesn't work you graphics card/chip is at fault.
If it does work its a screen problem, you could remove all power sources and try to get at the screen connectors. Usually under a panel between the keyboard and screen hinges. Be careful, they're usually clipped and screwed in, hard to move and easy to break.
Look for your screen and inverter connectors, ribbon connectors with a wide narrow plug, make sure they're home and good. If not you've possibly found the fault.
If they are home and good, you've probably got a screen or inverter fault. Time to get a tech.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
