Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a acer aspire 5100 and there is a crack on the screen, a friend of mine gave me a 15.4" screen from another acer (can't remember which model?) but the plugs you connect them up with wont fit my new acer...so my question is there a product code i can take from both screens, and quote it to a pc shop so they can order me the correct connections?. I have tried to connet the new one by taking my old cable off the original screen and connect it to the second hand one, but the screen is dark....my friend told me that the unit under the screen will need swapping...I think it's called the inverter?? Can you help???

This is what one calls a potential 'can of worms.'
It could require a great deal of connector swapping and it isn't likely that Acer will allow you to access the necessary circuit diagrams to even make this possible.
It is highly unlikely that you can simply procure and install any kind of 'adaptor' and without knowing having the circuit diagrams, you are facing a near impossible task.
The backlight of an LCD screen uses high frequency, high voltage to supply the fluorescent tube(s) that provide light.
Incorrectly connecting lines could result in damage to both you laptop and/or the circuits contained in the LCD body.

Need SATA HDD password for acer aspire 5100


When everything gets done loading the screen says:

Unknown Disc
<There is no disk in this drive.>

it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list

Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
Technical Information
STOP: 0x00000050
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000

I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error

What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.

From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again

im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Computer keeps shutting down for no reason. anytime you start up it has to go through several different screens. which takes about 10-15 minutes. computer is an Acer Aspire 5100.


You need to let us know what screens keep coming up. The only screens SHOULD be the initial POST screen (which is usually black with info about your system), then the windows start up screen. Then your desktop should show. If there are numerous screens popping up after this - are they browser screens (ie. Internet Explorer or Firefox)? If so, you're probably infested with spyware.
BTW - some systems hide the POST screen with their own logo, like Compaq.
Send more info, and it will help in fixing this.
