Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a problem where a large part of my Acer travelmate 4070 LCD screen is blank. The section is on the right side and is about 2 inches wide and spans the height of the screen top to bottom. It's mainly black however if you press the plastic casing above the affected area it changes colour and icons can be seen.

Depends on which Windows version you have, unstated.

Right click on screen anywhere except other icons, go to "properties" and adjust screen res to max and also check under appearance that icons are "normal"

How to Open a case


Acer Aspire RC900?

1) Computer off, unplug the power cable from the surge protector. Now unplug it from the computer (Power Supply)

(Unplugging the power cord from the back of the computer, while still plugged into the surge protector, may cause a voltage spike.

This could result in frying out the Power Supply, and may also fry out the Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, and Graphics)

2) Viewing the Acer Aspire RC900 from the Front, the Left side panel, is the panel that removes.

3) Viewing the Acer Aspire RC900 from the rear, look at the right side. (Left side actually, but now the computer is turned around)

There is a Cover Release Latch that is close to the outside edge, and towards the top.

It is whitish in color, and approximately 1-1/2 finger digits long, and half a finger digit wide.
(Universal measurement I figure. Using the Inch system it is approximately 1-1/2 inches long, and 1/2 inch wide)

Pull this Cover Release Latch to the right. (Towards the bottom of the computer if it were standing up)

You will see that this side cover, has a formed shape that you can put your fingers in, to pull the side cover towards the rear of the computer.

Pull the side cover back towards the rear of the computer to remove it.

Advise:

Your body carries Static electricity,
Static can fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Touch the metal frame of the open computer case BEFORE you reach inside, to relieve your body of Static.
(Not shouting)

If you get up, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again.

Computer unplugged from power, you are safe.
Touch the metal frame of the open computer case, your computer is safe.

Have any more questions concerning this, I'm right here. Please post in a Comment.
Regards, joecoolvette.

Acer Travelmate 5530 BIOS password reset needed


Ran into same problem with 5530 Travelmate and found the Gap terminal by process of elimination is G69. It is located about 1/2 inch to the top right of Ground#8 about 3 inches below the sync fan. It is not well marked (G69 notation is well to the left), but is distinct in that it is 2 triangular orange terminals. I had to scratch the surface a bit and it took 2 or 3 tries to get it, but it finally worked. PC will power right back down when you get it right, next time you restart password is cleared. F2 from post verified no password existed anymore.

Unfortunately your lcd screen is bad and needs to be replaced. Remove your screen, (don't forget to emove the battery first) get the number off of the back of the lcd and buy another one. Make sure THE NUMBERS MATCH, as close won't do. I see this problem about 2-3 times a month.

Sadly, the plasma screen is failing. The green strip is no longer functioning properly and the failures will continue to progress.

If still under warranty, get it exchanged.
