    Do you mean it wont boot up or turn on?

    Do you get anything on the screen when you first power ON?

    do you have a recovery CD? can you boot from it?

  • Dave Jul 17, 2008

    Are you able to connect an external monitor? I want to see if the black screen is due to the back light on the laptob being faulty (turns on then off for some reason)

    I think it is standard on Acers to use the Fn + F5 hot key to toggle the display setting between the computer's LCD panel and the external display device

  • Dave Jul 17, 2008

    OPPS my bad... got crossed between issues....

    Sounds like it is not detecting the video input, have you tried it on another PC? try this and also try replacing the VGA or DVI cable between the PC and monitor.

  • Dave Jul 17, 2008

    Doing some research, there was a similar issue with another model...

    the short term fix was to Unplug the monitor reset the video controller.

    Try unplugging the VGA while the PC and monitor are on. power off the monitor and reconnect the VGA and power ON

  • Dave Jul 17, 2008

    Also try unplugging the AC connector from the rear of the LCD and then reconnecting and power ON

  • Dave Jul 17, 2008

    also pretty sure this will have a 3 year warranty if these ideas dont help.

  • Dave Jul 17, 2008

    just a thought, can you connect another monitor to the PC and reduce the res to say 1024 x 768 and see if it will display on the "faulty" LCD at the lower res?
