Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
Have a laptop but for some odd reason my screen crack when I close the lid/monitor. Trying to have it replace without buying another laptop. How can I hook laptop up to my desktop monitor until I can find a reasonable repair or replacement. Acer company was going to charge $650.00 for monitor repair and I paid $628.00 for Wal-Mart for the entire laptop. Please do the math and will never purchase another Acer product. Thanks
There is a port for monitor cable, just plug your monitor and boot up your laptop. You need to plug first and then power it on. it should use your monitor for display

I'm going thru the same thing right now. My screen is messed up, but i can't get the monitor to show my desktop. It starts with my password on the monitor, but once i log on, the monitor goes to sleep. Acer is "THE WORST COMPANY AROUND!" I had an Acer while in Europe and had to have repair. first they lost it for six months, then they charged me half the price of the computer for repair. And I bought the best warranty. I told myself never again an acer, but my son bought me this one for my b=day after i returned from Europe. Now this one is bad.

The solution is to take it to a computer tech and have it repaired. My screen on my laptop (Acer) went black but if I let the sun shine directly on the unit or use a flashlight if there was no sun. I could get around on my laptop to put the info I needed on a flashdrive. I bought a Toshiba and was not happy with that at all. Had to take it in to get it repaired and decided my Acer was worth the repair of $250 to get the backlight replaced. I use my Acer all the time and let the grandkids play games on the Toshiba. I think it just depends on the individual laptop.
