Yo...

good to hear... least we know what is wrong...

so it can be one of 3 things... the first 2 are the most common and the last one can happen but I haven't seen it happen too often.

1. LCD control board is busted. Usually a circuit board that controls the picture going to the LCD screen. Usually built into the LCD monitor.

2. LCD screen is busted. The screen itself is busted.

3. Video card on the laptop is busted.

I'm going with 3 as you typed the system can't find the video card on the laptop. Try going to device manager and try to see if the computers/windows detects the video card. If it pops up you can try re-installing the drivers for the video card.

Check for any "Unknown" devices as that might be the video card itself.

Let me know what you found...

P.S. please rate my Solutions... Thanks

I have an Acer Z5600 desktop PC and i want to know if it is possible to connect an external monitor?


Unfortunately it is not possible. The system doesn't come with the necessary ports. Until they come out with an external display that works with USB, that system will be out of luck.

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!

SCREEN WONT TURN ON


Connect an external monitor (CRT or LCD) to the laptop's "VGA-out" port. Then, turn your laptop on. Does it show the usual "start-up" screen, on the external monitor? If so, then either your laptop's screen is totally-dead, or the "LCD-inverter" (a $20 part that takes $50 for a technician to replace) needs replacement.

Or, does your laptop have a key-sequence (LCD-screen-only, LCD-and-external, external-only) that needs to be used to select LCD-only mode?

I can turn my laptop on but the screen is black


Hi,


Do you hear a beeping sound when turning it on? Try connecting an external monitor (Desktop monitor) then press FN+F8 (Dell laptop only) and FN+F4 (HP laptop only). If it works on an external monitor, you may need to contact your computer manufacturer. check the warranty and request for an LCD monitor replacement.

If you hear a beeping sound when turning on your laptop or no power (no light). you may need to reseat the memory (RAM) or check the AC adapter (power adapter).

Let me also know the system model and computer manufacturer.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Can dell monitor connect to damaged screen on acer laptop


It shouldn't be a problem connecting an external monitor to the laptop using a vga cord. Once connected you will have to use the "Fn" button on the laptop and the corresponding "F" function button located at the top of the keyboard of the laptop that will allow the laptop to switch from both monitors or just each one individually. Usually it is the "F4" button.

Good luck
