Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi there buddy. I have an old Acer 3634 LMi laptop that works well except for the monitor. The display is all black but there is a faint showing of light, so I am lead to believe that it is the backlight that may be faulty. By the way, I have had an external monitor connector attached and working fine, but just did a complete reset back to factory settings, which has turned off the external monitor. First is there a way to reset the external monitor settings so I can use it now, and secondly I need some help with replacing the backlight. I have pulled the cover off and am now a bit puzzeled as to what to do next. Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks Matt

Does it seem like the laptop booted up except the screen is black? if so, try the steps below.
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Totally No Display? Is the laptop running? Do you hear fans running, disk drive spinning and lights? If it seems like the laptop completed the boot process except the screen is black, try this:

Acer al1711 shows only a white screen


These are pretty old now but I'll respond anyhow-
When there is absolutely no screen content and white, it means that ALL pixels are turned off; black, means all are turned on. If you have a white screen, it means that a component in the video stream has failed; a black screen (preferable failure!) often means that the backlight lamp or its inverter have failed. The latter is a potential DIY fix, a dead IC in the video path normally not since most of the signal chips (ICs) are placed and soldered by robots and the pin spacing on those is pretty much beyond the capabilites of an untrained hand.
The only exception I can think of is if the ICs no longer have voltage supplied to them from the main power supply but you would need at least a cheap multimeter to locate that.

Black screen on Acer 5100, but will work with external monitor


It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.
