Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

3 Answers

Display has lines that run through it

My Acer laptop display first had a (horizontal) line going through it and the cursor/mouse would not move. The laptop itself is stationary, with the exception of opening and closing the display screen. It sits on a desk... The screen started to get a thin line through it, but, when the screen was moved either forward or back it would resolve itself. Now the screen has several lines through is (all horizontal) and then the lines begin to increase in width and kind of take over the screen. The mouse/cursor will not work unless the screen is clear and without lines, which now doesn't happen at all. I can't get to anything, unless I hook my laptop up to my desktop screen.

Any help would be appreciated... Thanks

    Thanks!



    Yes, the lines are horizontal. Oh! and this morning there was a wide, yellow, vertical line down the middle of the screen. I'm going to send it to Acer. I've got to get it running again...



    I appreciate your help with this one...



    If you think of anything else, please let me know...

    Acer systems seem to have a lot of problems unfortunately. If you are out of warranty, forget it. Use an external monitor or recycle that problem system. Note Acer has several recalls and alerts for various systems; but alas, most of those recalls/class actions have expired. You can find those herehttp://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/aler... Best of luck

    If you can get through to support, make sure you ask them HOW MUCH it will cost. You might find it prohibitive and opt to possibly order a video card and consider replacing your self. HOWEVER, if it is out of warranty... check the price to repair FIRST. The other option (if you feel confident) is to check out online for parts and replace it yourself. Here is one on ebay that you might consider (I HAVE NO CONNECTION TO THIS SITE OR PRODUCTS)http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40...

They can be horizontal. I think your graphics card on your motherboard is bad. you should consider sending it to acer so they can replace it with a new one.

How can i boot my acer 1640 laptop from usb drive (external dvd), the bios have no option. Thanks


Do you still have the problem?
In BIOS setup go to the Boot section and move the cursor down to the harddisk line.
If you started your PC with the USB device connected, the Harddisk line should have a "+" to the left.
Press enter on the Harddisk line and move to the USB.. line.
Press F6 to move it upward.
Do the same to move the Harddisk line to the top before the CD/DVD line.
Save the settings and rebootReboot, and it should boot on the USB device.

I have an Acer laptop. While typing the cursor suddenly jumps up a couple of lines, or suddenly may highlight a phrase, causing instant erasure of the previously typed material. Why does cursor continually...


your palm might be hitting the touchpad causing your mouse cursor to move and jump around... try to type with only your fingers hitting the keys and the back of your hand raised and not hitting any part of your laptop... hope this helps....

Lines running through some pictures


Sounds like the video inverter is bad or the inverter has a bad connection.You could try unplugging the display and then plugging it back in,maybe it will help.Alot of times this starts happening if a wire gets stretched or in a bind opening and closing the display.Usually its the video inverter though.
