Usually laptops have a VGA port- so yes, you could connect an external monitor to use the laptop again. As far as being worthwhile to repair- LCD repair jobs depend on the availability of parts, and finding a technician or firm that will do the repair. From what it sounds like, the system is not in warranty and the contacting Acer for tech support is not an option. I know as far as Dell is concerned, out of warranty LCD repair pushes $500. I would price out your options- that would determine whether or not to replace the entire system.

It depends on how do you see it, looking at the standard of the shelf configuration I think it's time to get a new one (there are some great deals at OfficeMax check out HP Pavilion G72-250US, they have amazing sale on this one & I like the 17 inches bright LED screen too + the configuration is nice). On the other side if you feel the performance of the system is OK & you can survive for a bit longer then you might want to get the screen repaired. I just get another one :-)

My Monitor will not say on. Keeps turning off or Black screen when i click to do something. I am using my Laptop to ask this question


blorip, You will need to prove that x193w lcd monitor also does same when connected to different "known-good" pc!! Learn how to tell the difference between a "black screen" and a "black n blank screen" with use of a bright flashlight held 1 inch from lcd panel and at different angles. Yes, there is a difference!!! If problem proves not to be PC software, then must be problem with ccfl back-lit lcd display. You should view DIY repair and disassembly video clips at YOUTUBE before attempting to do any repairs to your Acer unit. Read some stuff in my fixya profile( pages 30 and up) for more info and links. Also view fixya profiles of "budmrtn" and "buddymc" . Follow links you find in profiles. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

Hi this is prince here from Bangladesh. i have a laptop that is acer travel mate 420. a few days ago its display is not working properly. some times it turn into various color. so what can i do?


Hi Prince, has your laptop experienced a squeeze or fall recently? I have a few suggestions. Plug another monitor into the VGA or DVI connection on your laptop. See if you are getting the same problem. If everything is working fine on the external monitor you would have eliminated the drivers being the problem. I suggest getting the LCD display changed. If your laptop is under warranty, you can get this done for free. However, if it is not under warranty you may have to replace it either yourself or take it to a local Acer specialist. If you chose to install the new display yourself, there are handy tutorials on removing and installing the screen on the Acer website. I have noticed that many times the Acer TravelMate Notebooks have experienced display issues. I hope you get your problem resolved soon.
Thanks for using FixYa.com!!

How do i get access to the RAM slots on an Acer Travelmate 420???


The memory is located under a small cover plate on the bottom of the unit. Remove the battery, and then take out the two screws of this cover plate, you will find your Ram located under this plate. Here is the user manual for your model notebook:

Acer travelmate 2440 theres power only the screen its pure black.


Try reseating the RAM modules first. The RAM may be faulty or reseating to make proper electrical connection. Get the RAM tested in another laptop or at your friendly computer shop.
Can you get into the BIOS configuration?
Did you power up the monitor first then the laptop? This method will divert the video information to the external video port first automatically.
If you don't get an image on the monitor and the hard drive doesn't appear to be spinning, then you could have a faulty motherboard.
