Weird colors after opening and cleaning Acer Aspire 3614WLMi

Hi,
I opened my laptop to clean the fan, when I put the whole thing back together, I had weird colors on the screen (huge patches of red, flashing pixels...), I could not even see what was happening on the screen!
I then checked the LCD connectors, one was a bit bent, I put it straight, replugged it and rebooted. Now the screen is far better, I can see much more, but instead of the black color, I have a fluorescent green....
I did not touch the graphic chip at all (Mobile Intel (R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family), and cleaned with compressed air.
Any ideas?
Thank you very much

How do i determine the maximum resolution an Acer Aspire 4732z can take? i know the thing wont show the right result cause i've hooked on two different monitors to this laptop before and i got different...


The monitor needs to be identified for the resolution to be known to the system, otherwise default limits will apply.
For some monitors 'drivers' are available that provide that info together with a color profile.
But best check the specifications of the monitor in the manual of on the web (based on model #).
If you use too high a resolution of refresh rate you can really harm the monitor...

Hi
Check that the GPU fan (s) spinning (In fact all fans), If not shut down immediately. New aftermarket fans can be sourced. Also check that fans are clean with NO build up of dust, if clogged remove card (With power cord disconnected and you earthed to chassis) and use vacuum cleaner or compressed air but lock fan from spinning.

Graphic card for acer aspire 1641


HI Denis,

Unfortunately you cannot change the video card an your laptop, you see its built into the motherboard. There are some high end laptops that use a MXM? slotthat it is possible to change cards and even then its still iffy.
the only real hardware changes you can make to your laptop are the battery, the RAM, and the hardrive.

Graphics card problem


Your graphics card might be going bad. The GPU might be getting too hot. Power down the machine, open the computer case and inspect the graphics card. If your graphic card has a fan, is it covered in dust. Get some of those compressed air cans from walmart or any other store, and blow out the dust.

If you still have a warranty on the PC, don't open the case, this may void your warranty. Since you are posting here, I will assume you don't have one, so go nuts with the Air cans.

Also you might have caused too much damage, and might need to get a new graphic card, but try the air cans first.

Hi Naida, A while back I had a computer that was having all kinds of video issues after it had been on for a little bit. I pulled the video card out and like you was able to free spin the fan and didn?t see any dust worth mentioning. Also like you I ran the computer with the case open to verify the fan was actually spinning but noticed there really wasn?t much air being moved. I removed the fan from the card and to my surprise found that the cards heatsink directly underneath the center of the fan was blocked with a solid ball of dust I couldn't see before. Cleaned that out, reassembled and I was good to go. If that doesn?t do it you might consider replacing the card fan. They?re small, cheap and run full board on gaming machines. Since you?ve gotten some messages indicting your software detects 0 rpm it would be a logical and cheap thing to try. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this post.
