I have a blank screen, the power light goes on but the monitor doesnt show anything. I was about the reinstall my OS as i was having some system problems likely caused by a virus, I opened the bios page and changed the boot first device to my usb optical drive to run my xp disc but the screen went blank and I cant get any menus. I think I might need to update my bios but I am hesitant in doing this incase it causes irreprable harm to my netbook. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: My aspire one linux edition powered off during D2D recovery!

Download Unetbootin on your windows machine and use it to load the recovery disk on to a usb drive. plug the usb into the AA1 and boot. While it's booting hit the f12 key this will bring up boot choices. Select the usb drive and away you go. And please remember to have it plugged in. Or ask around and borrow a portable CD-Rom. During boot you will see the screen ask you to select f12 to select a boot option.

SOURCE: acer one netbook screen blank on power up due to graphic driver

Does your laptop get past the startup screen? If not, then I doubt it's the graphics card driver that needs to be installed...I worked on an Acer One netbook a while ago and I found out that the wireless card was the problem. I took it out and the laptop worked fine ever since. I think I've read somewhere that Acer One's have a problem with their wireless cards. Though, it is a pain taking out the wireless card since you have to completely disassemble your laptop.

SOURCE: how do i put the info from restore disc onto flash drive

Before you start you will need the following:

1. Download & Run WinSetupFrom USB-0.1.1.
winsetupfromusb-install-program.png





















2. Complete the setup. The program will start automatically once you have finished.
winsetupfromusb.png



























3. Plug your pen drive into the computer and backup anything important from it as we are going to format it.
4. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: click Refresh next the USB selection box. The USB pen you have just plugged in should now be visible in the drop down menu. Select it.
refresh.png



























5. Insert your XP CD or mount an XP CD Image.
6. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: click Browse, next to the Windows 2000/XP/2003 Source box, and navigate to the location of the XP Install CD.

7. Now click the PE2USB button.

8. Now Tick the Enable Disk Format box under Format Options and Tick Quick Format and Enable LBA (FAT16X). Also make sure that Enable File Copy is not ticked.
correctsetup.png






















9. Click Start. Click Yes when the pop up asks if you wish to continue. Click Yes again when the pop up asks you if you are sure you wish to continue. When you get the Completed successfully message click OK and close PEtoUSB.
10. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: Click GO. The Program will now create a bootable windows XP install on your USB pen drive.
11. Click agree to the “SYSINTERNALS SOFTWARE LICENSE TERMS” pop up.
12. Click OK to the “This is Important” pop up.
13. The creation process is now complete: Take the newly formatted USB Pen and place it in the USB port of the target computer and turn it on.
NOTE: You must now read carefully what pops up on the screen as it will provide you with the hot-key (keyboard shortcut key) that, when pressed, triggers access to the BIOS. It is usually something like F1, F2, Delete or Escape.
14. Navigate the BIOS with the keyboard and find the section that contains your boot devices. With your USB drive plugged in, the USB drive should be listed. If it isn’t, your system might not support booting from USB.
15. Assuming that it is supported (as is the case with virtually all modern hardware), promote your USB drive to the primary boot device.
16. Exit from the BIOS configuration, saving all changes.
17. The computer will now reboot. Assuming that you have successfully compiled the bootable USB XP install and that you have successfully selected the USB device to be booted first in the bios a screen should appear which reads Windows 2000/XP/2003 Setup – First and Second Parts . Press Enter. You will now be presented with 2 options. Select Option 1 (first part) for the first stage of the installation process.
18. When the first stage setup completes and system reboots select Windows 2000/XP/2003 Setup – First and Second Parts, then Option 2 (second part) for the second stage of the setup.
DO NOT REMOVE THE USB PEN FROM USB PORT UNTIL YOU SEE THE WINDOWS START MENU

My acer aspire one laptop 532h-2db blank screen . help me pls.


If there is still light on it there are two possible points of failure. But we need to isolate first if it is a hardware or a OS issue. To do this you need to try to boot to the BIOS.
> Restart the computer and tap on F2 continously until you see a setup screen or the screen saying loading system setup.

If is goes to the system setup, then the issue is with the OS. Try to boot to safe mode.
Restart the computer and then keep on tapping F8 until you get a black screen with white writings on it that says safe mode, safe mode with networking. Choose Safe Mode. If this works, you just need to reinstall the video driver.
If booting to the BIOS does not work, then the problem is hardware related.
Try to connect an external monitor and then press Fn + F5, if the screen shows up on the external monitor then you have a problem with the LCD screen of your portable. You need to have it replaced.
If It does not show up, you need to have the video card replaced on the laptop which is embedded on the motherboard which pretty much is the whole electronic component underneath your keyboard.
Unfortunately this means it will be more economical to buy a new laptop. 1.

Monitor goes blank after 3 seconds -Samsung SyncMaster 920NW


Could be a power issue. If it doesn't show anything at all then that may be the case. It may also be the display itself. It would be a costly repair so you might be better off finding a new monitor.

Monitor Blank, Power light is not on


Your monitor have a bad condensatorin the PSU.

The only thing to do is to replace the Power Supply Unit (very expensive, more than a new monitor) or if you have electronic tools, found and replace that condensator.(cheaper way...)

Anyway, have you tried to replace your VGA card ? The problem could be there too !!

Best Regards!

Monitor goes blank after seeing XP during boot up.


did u replace the video card with the same kind of model ? i guess yes ... when system starts hit the f8 key and than go in to safe mode ... mouse wont work so use arrow on the keyboard .. and in the safe mode just log in to admin account if available or login to ur account and see if that still happens .. and if it doesnt ... remove the drivers for the graphic card from add and remove programs and restart the system and go in the normal mode and than install the drivers again ... and if the display disappears in the safe mode or u have install a different graphic card than ... reseat the memory cards and that should resolve the issue .... if that doesnt work out when the system starts hit f1 and stay on the BIOS screen for 30 mins if the system doesnt loose display than u need to reinstall OS ... that will surely work out ... the resolutions given above if u follow them correctly u will have a working system in no time

Desktop doesnt boot.


If you have a windows XP recovery CD, try running that at boot.

also, try pressing the f8 key to boot windows in safe mode.

it sounds like a corrupted OS install: if you can't recover, you may have to reformat your hard drive and reinstall windows.
