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.

My Acer laptop will not boot up.


You may have a corrupted video driver due to an update. For some Acers, press and hold F10 when starting the computer. Two beeps will mean that the bios settings have been restored and the machine may boot correctly. If you can enter the BIOS via F2, F1, F10, ESC or DEL, then find the area for display and change it to low resolution then save and restart your computer. Once running, you will need to uninstall the current video driver and have the computer install a new one.

Blank screen


  • With the computer on, use a flash light to inspect the screen. If you can see a very faint image then either the inverter board is bad or back light. Usually its the inverter.
  • If you get nothing, plug an external monitor and toggle the display to it. If you get output then your screen is bad or possibly a loose video cable.
  • If you get nothing, power off, pull battery pull all memory out. Power on computer. If you get BIOS and a no memory error, one of your memory modules is bad.
  • Still nothing, then the motherboard is bad.

My Acer Aspire one D250-1938 shows a blank screen only. Maybe it somehow stuck in hibernation mode. Have forced shutdown and restarted, tried F5, F6, F7, but still no screen. Any suggestions?


Try remove the battery, let it for 30 minutes without it, then plug it again the battery, then turn it on.

If still won't work, remove again the battery, wait till 30 minutes, the plug the charger, don't use the battery yet, then turn it on.If it works, you can plug in the battery again.

Flashing the Bios is a LAST DITCH effort to resolve Hardware issues. You should NEVER flash the bios unless you are absolutely certain it's the correct bios for your computer, also NEVER flash bios from within windows..

There may however be a solution for you, Acer laptop computers with the Pheonix BIOS sometimes has a " flashback" feature, allowing you to revert to your original Bios..

You will need to contact Acer to get a Crisis Bios recovery disk from them. Or ask for further information on how exactly to recover from a bad bios flash.

Dead pc


try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
restart computer.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.
give me more info

Power ON/ nothing on screen-


Hi,
enter the bios setup, if you can boot the computer/laptop. Usually F2 on bootup, it will say entering Setup.
Then scroll through the pages to see if your hard-drive is recognised by the system.
