Question about Computers & Internet

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.

you do not need to replace the converter- As long as your screen is just cracked then the converter is fine. Converter may be bad if your screen is really dim or just blank.

Screen


Try hitting the Function key and then whichever key on your keyboard swaps monitors. On mine, it is Function + F8. Also try hitting the little switch a few times that gets pressed when you close the lid.
