If that's the case that can be a problem with the screen itself that may need to be taken to a service center near you and they check that if needed they will replace the screen, if its still under warranty better take it back to Acer and have the screen replace..

Hope that helps.....

My acer aspire 5313 works when connected to externel screen and has a dim screen when using the screen. i have changed the screen, inverter, and signal cables but still same problem. i looks like the...


Hi Daniel,
The LCD screen displays is dark/ dim because there is no backlight.
There are two parts responsible for lighting the display. First is the CCFL (Cold Cathode Florecent Lamp), which is the back light and the second is the Inverter board, which provides high voltage to the CCFL. Either of the parts can be faulty or in some rare cases both. But most likely it is the CCFL (Lamp). Its life is limited and depending upon how long it has been in use, you can have a better idea - if its the CCFL or Inverter.
(Rest assure that your system/ motherboard is ok as you have checked it by connecting you laptop with some external display, which is working fine). Hence, the board/ graphics processor is OK. (In case the graphics processor fails, there is no display at all on the external monitor)
So, my advice is that you check the laptop LCD display for replacement of CCFL. I have found a general link about CCFL replacement. Click here for detailed and graphical DIY instructions about LCD disassembly.
Make sure you take proper precaution while working inside LCD, as the inverter generates a very high voltage.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    I have a HP Pavilion laptop ze4900. Every time I move th screen, the display either goes off completely, or it goes vey dim and I cannot read anything from it. The only thing I can do to get a display


    You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
    To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

    Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

    • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
    • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
    • Picture flickering with dim display.
    • Picture flickering on and off.
    All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

    Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

    Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
    The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

    I've acer travelmate 4500 laptop. Till yesterday it was working fine, but today i donno what happend to it.. the screen display is completely dull. that I couldn't see the display and if I closely observe...


    The possible reasons is that you have turned down your brightness and contrast without realizing it, to fix this simply look for a brightness key on your keyboard and turn it up. If it is missing or did not fully work, see if you can notice any image and try to get into your Display properties, click the setting tab and go into advanced and turn up your brightness and contrast from there. If this does not work, im afraid to say you have damaged your LCD screen and this would result in your dull screen appearance. Get a computer technician to take a good look at it to see what has happened if this is the case

    ok my friend as you said the operating system is not loading any more so that means we are having some corrupt files that makes the windows to fail while trying to boot up.

    and since you cannot even log in to the computer even in safe mode that means you have only two options.

    first is to try a repair (most of the computers use F12 key to get to the repair counsel).
    second reinstalling windows.

    so try the first one if it doesn't work then reinstalling windows will be the last thing to do.

    if you need and further help please let me know

    cheers

    I have an ACER Travelmate 230 notebook. The system is working but the monitor does not display anything. I can use the laptop with an external monitor successfully. Is this the end for my laptop?


    So after a power up we can deduct that its not a hard drive problem because you have managed to successfully attach an external LCD screen to the system.

    It may not nessacarily be the end , laptops are mobile machines and time to time plugs and sockets don't hold their devices in place and in your case most probably one of the two connectors on your laptops LCD screen.

    It could possibly be one of these 3 things

    1. The ribbon connector which carry's the video signal to your LCD screen has become dislodged you will need to open up your laptop and check this and make sure its seated in its interface properly. This is usually located in the spine of the laptop

    2. The power connector on the LCD screen itself which is a small black 3 pronged plug has become loose also open up your laptop and check this

    3. when the computer has had time to boot press the fn + F6 on your keyboard , you may have to press this a few times but this is the manual LCD screen off and on button

    Tell me how this goes

    Cheers

    How do I increase the screen brightness of the Acer Travelmate 6292. I have tried control panel - power options but screen brightness adjustment doesn't feature on it.


    You need to press the blue FN button and the brightness up or down button.

    looking at the laptop keyboard I suspect its either the up and down keys or left and right

    let me know if you need anything else or further assistance before rateing.
