Question about PC Laptops

Laptop script colour very light

I have had this laptop - acer, for barely six months now and initially the print seemed fine.but one day it was left on a table with direct sunlight on it for a very very long time.did that actually make the difference.
my sister has the same loptop bought on the same day and there is a lot of difference in the colour.
could this be the reason for the colour to have become light???
It seems to be getting lighter like its running out of ink.I am very worried and I also have to strain my eyes a lot now.
Is there any method to darken/ lighten the contrast ( like phones have and /or font sizes can be changed etc )?
I would be grateful for your help.
thank you.
my laptop is an acer aspisre 2920 but assistance is not accepting this as a valid product.
What is this????I am reeeaallly worried now.
please help. Is my product not valid or non existant?

There is a brightness control on the laptop. If you'll notice in blue on the number or function keys should be a symbol for increase brightness or decrease brightness. I think its F8/F9. By pressing the Fn key down and then using those keys it will increase or decrease the brightness of the screen.

That being said, however, it does sound like there is another issue going on with either the LCD inverter or the LCD itself, possibly the backlight in the screen. I would contact Acer warranty service so they can service your laptop if it is still under warranty as LCD replacements can be costly.

Acer A150-1049 Does not start up. Press On/Off switch > switch light goes on > drive, num, and caps lights flash momentarily, light 'whir' sound - cycling 2 to 3 seconds (drive?), nothing else...

If you don't see a POST/BIOS screen pop up then the issue is hardware based, the easiest way to get this resolved is to get it repaired or replaced under warranty, check your warranty here:
if it is under warranty then you can go to the follow page to initiate a service request:
If the laptop is not under warranty, take it to a computer shop (you may end up having to pay a bit of money for the repair)

Shuts off unexpectedly

Hi there.
Because the machine is only one month old i would recommend that you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for repair, it won't cost you anything to do this as this sounds like a serious hardware problem or failure which is not of your doing.
Telling you to open the laptop will only void your warranty so this is not recommended.
Your computer will only be away for a week or so and i know it could be a pain not having it there, but for peace of mind this is the correct procedure.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Vertical lines on the laptop screen

hi, the fault could be cause by a number of things, the Lcd harness cable maybe loose or faulty or even a mainboard issue, but it sounds like the matrix (circuitry)of the LCD is on it's way out.

My acer aspire 9300 screen is so dim i can barely see anything


      Have you tried adjusting the Brightness of the Display? May seem like a stupid thing to ask, but some laptops come with what is known as Ambient Light Sensors and by setting a higher brightness level it Disables the Ambient Light Sensor kicking in.
