Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Black Screen Acer Extensa 3000, computer screen went black, can still see the desktop with a light. When I use an external monitor I don't get a picture unless I'm in Setup or in SafeMode. I kow it could possibly be the backlight for the laptop itself, but the backlight wouldn't stop me from getting a picture on an external monitor. Can anyone steer me in the right direction? Already checked the memory modules.

If you have a picture on your desktop and nothing on your external,With external screen plugged in check the output set up on display properties,may need to be set up again.
Once the screens are identified you should be able to save these settings and remember to set the correct screen size or you may experience Black screen syndrome were your video picture should be displayed,if in doubt start at the smallest (800x600) and work from there adjusting to suit the individual requirements.

Don't for get to save before reboot then test,

If you have another monitor you can hook that up to the blue connector( VGA) This is usually on the side or on the back. If you get a picture then your internal video might be bad.

The screen on my acer extensa 5420 went black how can I trouble shoot to see what it is?


Good day sir/maam, when your LCD becomes black, the backlight of the LCD screen just went bad. this is caused by the failure of the inverter circuit board and/or lamp, at this point you don't have much choice but to bring it to your dealer for possible inverter replacement, at the moment if you want to see your display, you can plug in an external monitor temporarily. you can activate it by pressing Fn + (locate on your keyboard a picture of a monitor with the same color as your Fn key). hope this helps.

My computer screen is black


Turn your computer off.
Make sure both cords from monitor are plugged in.
Make sure you have pressed any required "on" button on front or side.
Try your monitor on a friend's computer.

Tell us whether or not it worked there and what kind of monitor it is.

Blank screen on start up on Acer Extensa 4620


Did you switch displays to the external video? Try hitting the Fn key and whichever function key at the top of the keyboard has a little TV screen icon over it at the same time.

Black screen on Acer 5100, but will work with external monitor


It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.

Acer laptop has black screen but power light is on


Does it appear to be doing anything. Is there a flashing "_" at the top left of your screen. If not try hooking a monitor up externally and turning the laptop on.
