I have seen many dead lcd screens pass across my desk for repair,
no easy fix for this at all,

Its normally the inverrter or the screen itself.
I'm not sure who would be able to fix this is south africa but the www.Acer.com may be able to suggest the agents local to you.

But I beleive there pricing for screens is crazy,(My opinion)
Its easier to buy a dead machine and transpose the screen a ditch the body or keep it for spare parts for you machine,

If you pick up a second hand unit cheap then get the lid changed over even if you can't do it yourself then it would still work out cheaper to have someone do it for you,

You could search the correct screen from your make and model or take the original info from the back of the screen,
(means you will have to dismantle the beast yourself).
They are a little fiddly but do-able,
only other thing how much are you prepared to pay....

Screen spares and Post n packaging or shipping and/or Labour.

I have screens shipped from the one side of our country to the other,
Geographically in the southern hemisphere,(by Australia)

North Island to the South Island (New Zealand)
www.newzealand.co.nz

Absolutely no issues at all,no busted screens in transport,
Just make sure they're packaged well and they should travel well.

Use a reliable courier service and track n trace is easy to follow up.

Go the All Blacks,
Go Kiwi Go.
Thanks

Hi,

If you have windows CD or DVD

hi michelle, first check to see if you can even get to your BIOS. if that is not posible then you might have either a power supply or motherboard issue. for either one of those you will need to send for repair.

If an external monitor works fine then maybe you're having issues with the LCD's backlight. It happened to my laptop and I had to replace the whole LCD itself.

Acer travelmate 4100 works fine with no battery


Try to use another OS, like Ubuntu Live, and see if the mouse and KB will freeze. If they wont freeze, It is better to reinstall the OS.

If they will freeze again with Ubuntu, then I am sorry to tell you that the battery life has finished.

The only thing to do is to replace it for another one new.


Thanks for rating!!

White screen on Acer Travelmate 7720


most likely you have a faulty LCD screen, the only option u have is to replaced it or u can use a external LCD screen to act as screen for your laptop. you'll be needing a VGA cable to connect your laptop to any LCD screen available.

LCD is on...seems like backlight is not functional; when external monitor connected, boot-up and bios screen visible. After boot-up, screen goes to "power save" mode and will not return


Use the 'FN' key (blue coloured?) and one of the other blue-coloured keys to "toggle" the video:

1. LCD only
2. external monitor only
3. both LCD & external

After boot-up, Windows defaults to "LCD only", and so the external monitor goes to "sleep".

If this happened suddenly, the backlight power supply (inverter)  has probably failed. It could be the backlight itself but they normally will dim or flicker before they die.
Try shining a light at an angle on the display with the computer turned on and look at it from an angle too. You may be able to see video very faintly; if you do, then it is as described above; a backlight problem, not the LCD display itself.

Acer Travelmate 2410 with display probs


Could be the screen is running with the wrong colour depth and resolution - reset the settings by right clicking on the screen selecting properties and then adjust on the settings tab.
