Question about Acer TravelMate 4010 Notebook

3 Answers

Display Screen The display screen shows only 3/4 of screen from left to right. It was working fine until my daughter was using it and and all of a sudden the size changed. Any ideas if she could of hit a key or combo of keys to cause this. I have checked everything. I just want to make sure before I try to have this laptop fixed.

    Is is the right side screen. 3/4 of screen is displaying from left to right and 1/4 right side is missing. It could be that the screen just when bad. I looked at the cable connection that supports the display and saw no problem. Just could be a bad lcd.

Uninstall and reinstall the video driver. Open devmgmt.msc and go to video driver properties and uninstall. reboot windoze and the driver should automatically get installed. If not go to manufacturers website or insert driver disc.

It would most likely be a damaged screen if the left side of the screen looks no different to normal. LCD screens tend to go in horizontal or vertical patches if there is a problem with the internal connection to the LCD.

    BWT this a much better indicator is if the problem happens during the initial boot up of the computer (ie the first few screens you see after pressing the power button)

She might have changed the display settings, right click on your desktop and go to properties, go to the settings tab and change the screen resolution there. might not be the problem but worth a look, i had something simular when my daughter messed with my pc.

Display problem

Sounds like the LCD has some damaged crystals in it. Try connecting the netbook to an external pc monitor using a VGA cable. Hold the Fn key and hit the F8 or F7 key until the display shows on the external monitor. This will determine if it's a driver/settings or display issue. If the display is fine on the external monitor, the LCD display on the netbook is the problem. Good luck!

    I have a blank, black screen, irrespective of the input (cable, dvd, wii). The menus, however, come up fine and the audio is working fine.


    Your screen is showing a black picture because the closed caption function has been activated. When the closed caption mode is on the screen will display an 80% black picture.

    To turn off the closed caption and regain a full screen please follow these steps;

    1) Press the Menu button

    2) Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Closed Caption

    3) Use the right or left arrows to select it.

    4) Use the right or left arrows to select OFF

    5) Use the up or down arrows to select Finish

    6) Use the right or left arrows to save the settings and exit.

    You should have your full screen back now minus the annoying black box.

    If this solution has helped please do take a moment to rate it.

    Thanks for using FixYa

    Laptop computer connected to projector.

    When the projector displays the background image and the lcd displays the desktop as normal you can drag the open windows to the left or right and display them on the projector. it sounds like this laptop has an internal video card. If you right click on the desktop it might give you options to configure the display settings for the video card. Not sure how you will get to it if it does not show up on the right click menu. Probably through the start menu or in the control panel there should be somewhere to change the settings for the video card. This will no be under the display settings though.

    But once you find your dual display options you will be able to change it to make both displays the same

    The display screen has turned black

    When you connected the external monitor thto the laptop did it display?

    If so then you have to reset the monitor port. Hold down the function key and find the FKEY that shows a picture of a monitor. Press that until you get the laptop screen back.

    Typical use is:
    • 1 press = external monitor
    • 2 presses = laptop and dual monitor
    • 3 presses = just the laptop screen

    Black striped down left hand side of display

    Hi Danny, you haven't been very clear I will assume you pushed the auto configure on the monitor,
    I would go into the menu on the monitor and reset the size of the screen if it has a setting for that 1024x768 should fix the problem
    let me know what you find as I have never worked with a hp W19 monitor, if nothing else set the monitor to defaults again in the menu and that may get you back to having normal screens.
