Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

3 Answers

Graphics gone wild!

Hello, i just reclaimed an Acer 5000 from my son and it is whacked. When you turn it on the screen is just a lot of graphics and when I try reboot in safe mode I can see the text but over it still are the colors all over the screen. I am game to open the ****** up but want to know if it is something I can replace? Thanks, G_Meade

    Ok, I appreciate the quick replies..of course my son didn't hand over any manuals or disks. I still love him though. Now, the big question- is the graphic card separate on this notebook or is it part of the motherboard? Also, where can I get a look at the schematics online so i know for sure I am removing the right part? thanks!

The video on the Acer 3000/5000 is a chip, SiS 760GX, soldered directly to the motherboard. (I tried to include the block diagram, but this program wouldn't let me.) Therefore, replacing the video card is not a viable option.

Try changing the resolution of your screen this may fix your problem.

Most Acer laptop graphics cards are not upgradeable. In fact most laptop graphics cards are not upgradeable in general. Usually if it does not say that you can upgrade then it can not be replaced or upgraded, however I would give Acer a call and see if they can do anything for you especially if it's under warranty.

Dear sir,

It seems to your notebook screen or plasma broken and very chance of graphic card problem.So definitely it is screen(LCD) broken.If it covers warranty visit nearer Acer service centre.they may replace your laptop screen.If it is not covers warranty screen is too much expensive.So you have to invest dollars.

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
