Replacement LCDs are available for just about every make and model of laptop on Ebay, generally for a reasonable price.

However, installing a new LCD in a laptop can be a difficult operation; I highly recommend having the installation done in a repair shop.

If you do decide to try installing a new LCD yourself, here are the basics:

There are several screws you need to remove. On the bottom of the computer are generally between two and six screws that hold the power/hinge bezel in place, as well as the keyboard. Remove these screws and CAREFULLY pull up the bezel. The keyboard may also have screws under that bezel, remove those before lifting the keyboard (usually doesn't have to be completely disconnected, just shifted aside, but don't stress the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard too much).

With the bezel and keyboard out of the way, you should see a cable that connects the motherboard to the LCD through one of the LCD hinges. Disconnect that cable.

The plastics covering the LCD should have a handful of rubber or plastic 'plugs', between four and ten of 'em, with small screws located underneath each. Remove these screws, then very gently use a small flathead screwdriver to pry the LCD plastics apart at the seams along the side.

Once the front plastics are removed from the LCD, disconnect the long, slim PCB that rests beneath the actual screen. Remove the screws that hold the screen to the mounting brackets along its sides, and the LCD should be loose. Carefully lift it from the rear plastic cover, and you'll see a ribbon cable connected to the display. Release the clips that hold the ribbon cable in place on the screen, and you're ready to put in the new LCD!

I know its long and circuitous, but repeat the steps above in reverse to install the new screen.

Hope this helps!

Most likely your issue is caused by a failing LCD Inverter. You will need to have this replaced. Part is available here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Acer-Aspire-One-A110-A150-LCD-Screen-Inverter-B089AW01_W0QQitemZ190363835846QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_LaptopAccess_RL?hash=item2c52919dc6

You may use your old Vista. Because it's licenced to you. But you have to create a setup disc from it. Rescue discs are not for setting up a new system,

LCD INVERTER


FYI,
If your lcd is cracked, your warranty is gone. It doesn't matter if it is accident or not, because it is user fault. Unless you have 3 year total warranty from acer, they will repair it.

Acer aspire 5050 laptop color lines on screen


you can try pulling the screen apart and re-seating the ribbon cable, but the lcd might be broken, or one of the controller lcd chips might either be cracked or broken. Trying to reseat the lcd ribbon cable might help, but if there is a visible crack in the screen- you will need a new screen.
