Question about Acer X163W 16" wide format TFT Screen 8 ms, VGA 16 inch Monitor

1 Answer

I have my monitor connected to my laptop because the laptop screen went out. The monitor has been working fine until the last few days but now when I power on the laptop & monitor, the monitor only comes up for a few seconds then says no signal. I know the laptop is working because it has fingerprint log in & I can hear the music that plays when my homescreen comes up. Any suggestions for troubleshooting when I'm working "blind"?

Please restart the computer and go to safe mode by tapping F8 key once the system is restarting choose Enable VGA Mode (Windows XP)
choose Enable low resolution Video (Windows Vsita / 7).

Change the display settings to slightly lesser than what the monitor can handle and shut down and restart the computer in normal mode.

Boot performance monitoring error


>> Tired to reboot several times and still no video.
>> Waited until the next day and the video was working.
>> Very strange.

Sounds like overheating, either inside the monitor, or on the video-card, or inside the computer.

When it happens again, disconnect the data-cable from monitor from the desktop computer, and connect the data-cable to a laptop computer.
If the monitor works, then it's not the monitor that is the problem.

Also, when it happens again, have another monitor, and connect it, to see if the other monitor works, or if the video-card cannot "drive" either monitor.

HP zv5430us laptop has no video. Blank


The laptop has a built-in video card and the video RAM uses part of the main RAM.
First, re-seat the RAM modules and if the laptop still does not boot up normally then remove the RAM and get it tested at your friendly computer repair shop.
If the RAM is OK then connect an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first and then the laptop. The video data should divert to the external monitor automatically, if you do not get any video image on the monitor then the video card in the laptop is faulty and a motherboard replacement is required.
A replacement motherboard may not be a cost effective solution and If it was me, I would put my money on a new laptop. I would then remove the hard disk and insert it into an USB adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Hi I have a samsung syncMaster 920N The screen has suddenly gone blank - the power light is showing. I have a second identical monitor and have swapped cables but no difference Is it a repairable fault?...


This happened to me a few months back. I removed all cables and left it for 2 days. Switched back on on it worked fine. That is until yesterday when half the screen went black. I found that my driver was out of date. I have undated the driver but have decided to leave it off and unplugged for another day.
You could try this. You say you have another monitor, i would suggest using it for a few days and the try the old one again.

Laptop LCD display problem


The backlight is the light bult that illuminates the screen. Before it finally goes out completely it will turn your screen a pink color on startup (and then usually become brighter and the pink fades). It is also possible that the backlight, also called a Cold Cathode Flourescent Light, CCFL, died an immediate death. But usually they take a while and signal with the "PINKNESS" first. If you found that your computer is working just fine connected to an external monitor (and you moved the base of your laptop around while connected to the monitor to be sure and left the computer on for a long time) then you have verified that the screen is the problem. It is usually two things: (1) the inverter, a circuit board that increases the voltage to supply the LCD which eats around 700 volts (yeah baby); or (2) the backlight itself. The first problem is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix. You can find how to replace an inverter by downloading the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the T40, T41, etc., from IBM/Lenovo's site. Replacing the backlight itself, a bulb that is like a strand of speghetti and even more delicate, is a tougher job. I would suggest purchasing a replacement screen in that event rather than replacing the backlight yourself. (The HMM probably does not show you how to replace the backlight/CCFL as it is a potentially dangerous job.) That suggestion assumes you can find a cost-effective replacement screen and do not mind opening the TP and putting the new screen in. At least look at the HMM to see what is involved. Good luck.

Screen went black


Swap monitor connections to determine if one of the monitors is not working.
If one is not working you probably have an internal problem. If power led responds to the off-on button but no picture is seen, the inverter has likely blown a fuse. Replace the fuse and resolder the leads on all 6 inverter transformers or the fuse might blow again.

Problem with the display on screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop and see if the colors are also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the colors, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.

Black screen


One way to test it is to connect a monitor to the VGA port (make sure to activate the external monitor (Fn+monitor key)
If it does work on the external monitor, I would look at replacing the onboard LCD.
If it doesn't, you are looking at problems with the onbaord video.

Faulty backlight hp laptop


Well, first off, do you get a screen (external or onboard) if you boot into the bios? If you have no video whatsoever, the only thing that would start working again after time off, then stop, would be the video module went. slowly, but it went.

Main cause is overheating, caused by the heatsink/fan becoming clogged up.

What makes you think the backlight was the problem BTW? Sure it wasn't just the inverter?

Let me know if you can access bios?

Good luck
