Question about Computers & Internet
If it's still in warranty, then Acer will fix it free of charge.
If not in warranty, disconnecting and reconnecting the cable that joins the display to the mainboard may fix it. It may be a dirty connection, a dead inverter board, or even dead backlight (incorporated into the lcd panel itself) or the entire lcd could be shot. It could also be the onboard video chip. Also try connecting the netbook to an external monitor. If you power the netbook on with an external monitor connected, it should light up the external monitor. Also, it may not be the display...... Try removing and reseating the ram. Try just one ram chip if there is more than one. The unit may just also be dead (mainboard). Try the warranty route first. Acer also has a flat fee they charge to do a mainboard in Canada ($199). Call Acer first.
Hope this helps! Let me know how you make out.
