Laptop Display Screen Wobbles About.

Acer TravelMate 803LCi Laptop Notebook. Display-Screen Wobbles About.
I think this is a purely mechanical problem. On
opening the screen it is impossible to get it to
"lock" into any selected position (it flops back
and forth 3 to 4 inches around whatever position
is selected). It is a real nuisance - I had Acer
look at it and they seemed to have fixed it, but
the fault returned within a few weeks. I have
tried to tighten up the two small screws (hidden
beneath black rubber plugs)that push onto either
end of the hinge at the bottom of the screen, but
they are already tight. If anyone knows of
anything else that can be done then I'd certainly
appreciate hearing from you.

    Thanks miqueas for your helpful suggestions. Unfortunately my laptop is designed differently with a very thin screen/cover. I nevertheless tried tightening up all likely-looking screws, but with little or no effect. In fact I overdid things and stripped the threads somewhat!!

    I'll have to just try and live with it until getting a new laptop!

Hello,

You will need a Windows CD, which i think came with your laptop. Insert the CD and follow the instructions on-screen.

Best regards

Hi this is prince here from Bangladesh. i have a laptop that is acer travel mate 420. a few days ago its display is not working properly. some times it turn into various color. so what can i do?


Hi Prince, has your laptop experienced a squeeze or fall recently? I have a few suggestions. Plug another monitor into the VGA or DVI connection on your laptop. See if you are getting the same problem. If everything is working fine on the external monitor you would have eliminated the drivers being the problem. I suggest getting the LCD display changed. If your laptop is under warranty, you can get this done for free. However, if it is not under warranty you may have to replace it either yourself or take it to a local Acer specialist. If you chose to install the new display yourself, there are handy tutorials on removing and installing the screen on the Acer website. I have noticed that many times the Acer TravelMate Notebooks have experienced display issues. I hope you get your problem resolved soon.
Thanks for using FixYa.com!!

Acer travelmate 2440 theres power only the screen its pure black.


Try reseating the RAM modules first. The RAM may be faulty or reseating to make proper electrical connection. Get the RAM tested in another laptop or at your friendly computer shop.
Can you get into the BIOS configuration?
Did you power up the monitor first then the laptop? This method will divert the video information to the external video port first automatically.
If you don't get an image on the monitor and the hard drive doesn't appear to be spinning, then you could have a faulty motherboard.

Seem that your screen resolution changed. Turn off the notebook and again switch it back press F8 until it shows a list of option and then select SAFE MODE. Select it and enter into safe mode.

After welcome screen Right click on Desktop and select properties.

You will get Display Properties window.

Then select the Settings TAB in Display Properties. There select the screen resolution as low as you can 640by480 or 800by 600 then select apply and restart the Laptop.

The notebool should work normally as previously it work.

Hope this will be usefull

Thanks & regards
