Sounds like the machine is overheating. Check to see if the cooling fan is working properly and comeing on at regular intervals. It could just need a good cleaning. I had a similar machine with the same problem, turned out to be a hair wrapped in the fan. Your's may or may not be this simple, you may need to replace the fan. If this doesn't fix it let me know and we'll take a different approach.

Screen fades to white, everything freezes, then returns to normal


My first thought is a video inverter.

Install an external monitor and see if the problem persists.

If it doesn't then it is the LCD on the laptop.

Good luck

God Bless

I dropped my laptop and now the screen is messed up.


Ack. Sounds like you might need to replace your screen (sounds pricey but is cheaper than a new laptop). You can find second hand/refurbished screens or another Aspire with a working screen being sold for parts on Ebay or here

On a side note, if you a have a PC monitor lying around, you can access your files by hooking it up to your laptop via the dvi slot. Granted, it seems a bit ghetto but its a quick fix until you get something more permanent.

I recently broke my iPhone screen and completely shattered a dell laptop a few years ago. You know all those people who are adamant about you buying proper carrying/protective cases? Screw 'em.

This does sound like the cable, but it could also be the inverter. Here's a step by step to removing the screen.
