Acer Aspire (1414) screen stays black when started

Our Acer's screen stays black when we start the computer. The computer itself seems to start normally but the screen displays no image?

The computer is about 3 years and very dear to us as my fiancée is doing her thesis with it. Help would be greatly appreciated :)

    Thank you very much for this advice!



    The computer shop diagnosed the computer and told my girlfriend that it will cheaper to buy a new one than try fixing it.



    When we get the computer back from the shop I will try out your suggestions :*)

It's look like your laptop have a problem called "NO POST".
motherboard, cpu or memory can cause this problem.
To diagnose it, reseat your memory first and after that turn it on.
if it still no post.
use only 1 memory and turn it on, if still same,
Try to move your memory and seated to different slot and turn it on. if it still same, it's mean your motherboard/cpu is bad.

good luck

start up the computer and while its running, hold a flash light to the screen. If you can see any graphics on the screen, your lcd converter burned out. If you can seen nothing, its possible that the back light lamp burned out and the best option would be to replace the screen altogether

Aspire One PC Notebook: My acer one aspire turns on but screen stays black...


Try this for the black screen of death problem...

Here’s what you need:
  1. USB Memory stick (as low as 128mb)
  2. Another PC with a net connection
  3. WinZip, WinRAR, or some other program that can extract zip files.
  4. A quick visit towww.acer.com
  5. Your Acer Aspire One, that will power up/turn on, but the screen does not come on.
And here’s what you do:
  1. Go to www.acer.com and go through the DRIVER support pages until you get the Aspire One driver page for your relevant Aspire One model (110/150/751)
  2. Click on the tab on the download area that reads ‘BIOS’ even if it looks like you can’t click on it (their site design grays it out but it’s there) and download the BIOS file numbered 3310 (it might have changed version recently but do it) and don’t worry, you can trust this file, as it’s from Acer directly.
  3. Extract the zip once downloaded and find in the DOS folder the files ‘flashit.exe’ and 3310.fd
  4. When you’s ve found them, rename 3310.fd to ZG5IA32.fd and put this renamed file and ‘flashit.exe’ onto the USB memory stick
  5. Put the USB in the Aspire One and hold the keys ‘FN’ (function) and ‘Esc’ (escape) and keep them held when you turn the laptop on
  6. Watch the power button and when it starts flashing, press it once (DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE)
  7. You should notice the USB (if it has a light) blinking as well… The netbook has started ‘flashing’ the BIOS and after about 7 minutes, the netbook should shutdown and reboot itself and VOILA! The screen should turn on just fine.
It took my three times but this IS the proper solution! I am now very happy with my Aspire One that still works!

Acer Aspire 5100 laptop's screen remains black at start-up


This is probably a hardware issue with the monitor. Just to make sure, uninstall, and reinstall the monitor's driver. If that doesn't fix it, it's a hardware issue.

You will have to either take it to a shop, or contact the manufacturer (your computer should be under warranty if you've had it for less than a year).

Screen stays black


Try using a different monitor if you have one available, or disconnect the monitor from the computer and then turn it on. If you see a logo or color bar or message saying no signal, then your monitor is OK and you should take a look at your video card.

If you suspect your video card, there is very little you can do with a no video situation. but one thing you can do is to remove the video card completely and wait for a few minutes. then put it back in and try to start your computer. This is just in case you have corrupted video memory keeping it from functioning. otherwise, replace the card.

In the case that your video is built into you computer, buy a new card and disable the onboard video in the BIOS. That will take some browsing in the BIOS setup, but it shold be fairly easy to find. once it is disabled, the new card will be able to function and you should be ok from there. Otherwise, it's motherboard replacement time.
