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 got acer aspire net book size is 8.9 inch. Ca i connect it to external monitor


Hi.

Sure you can with a standard VGA video cable.

Maybe you will have to change your screen resolution to get the best display layout.

Hope it helps!

Hi,after 1 year of normal usage my screen turns white-grey when switched on my pc.cant get into the main menu coz nothing comes up on the screen.what should i do?


Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please try and connect any external monitor to the system to check if you have the same issue on the external as well
If you got the same display then it means that the graphic card of the system has some issues
If External works fine, it means that the LCD of the laptop has some problem.

Hi, My acer laptop screen gets color vertical lines and cant see anything else. sometime it works fine but after some time it gets lines again


HI There,

The easiest way to troubleshoot your problem is to connect your laptop to an external monitor. If the lines on the laptop screen don't appear on the monitor, then you know you need to replace your screen and screen inverter.

If the lines appear on the external monitor as well, then your video card on the motherboard of the laptop is failing and you'll need a new motherboard or want to consider a new laptop, depending on the repair cost.

Acer monitor wont exit power save mode. Ive tryed 2 different monitors. 1 the acer the other a dell and didnt work on both, but the dell works fine as long as its not that pc. I removed the motherboard...


Assuming that it is an "external" monitor, and not the built-in LCD screen in your notebook, you have to tell your computer which option you want:
* output only to internal screen
* output only to external monitor
* output to both internal & external.

Look for a BLUE-coloured 'FN' key on your keyboard, and a button that cycles through the above 3 settings. Push that button while HOLDING the 'FN' key down.

If your computer is set to "internal-only", then the external monitor will _stay_ in "power-save" mode, although the monitor will work fine if connected to some other "desktop" computer.

How do i get my acer 5715z laptop to work with external monitor , the monitor goes into power save mode as goes to log on page . My laptop monitor has a large cracked mark on it thats why i need an...


Cause If you connected the monitor power already is on, you may not get signal. Power plug off the monitor first, Then connected to laptop. Then power the laptop and power the monitor. FN key press hold with your Monitor swicthing key which symbol of two monitor shows on key probably number 5 or 6 maybe 7 check user guide if you have it.
another cause is your monitor may need driver install in your laptop, Some system required that. Check monitor system requirements.

Acer aspire one will not work.


Hi,

If you get a post screen with Acer written on it at startup, and the screen turns off when loading the system (Windows or Linux), then you need to reinstall the system using an external USB cd unit and the recovery disk that was provided with your Acer.

If instead the display has no screen at all , try connecting an external monitor to test the laptop.

If you get picture on external monitor, then the Aspire One has a faulty LCD ribbon cable or a faulty LCD display or inverter.

If you get no picture on external screen , then you have a faulty motherboard, possibly faulty video chipset on motherboard.

In any case check your Acer One warranty, all the faults listed are covered by Acer warranty for one year.
Contact Acer at the number listed on documentation to have the computer repaired.

Acer 3100 screen wont turn on.


Have you tried hooking an external monitor to the system? If that works you may have accidently switched the screen to an outside monitor. Or you could have a bad connection. Try starting in safe mode and see if it works.

Connecting an external monitor to acer 5720


I have had this before with my Dell Latitude C540/640. I don't know the ACER 5720 but here's a couple possible fixes for you.

1. Press the function key ( "fn" key, generally a blue key or blue lettering and usually in the bottom left corner of your keyboard) and press F8 (may be a different key on your laptop, again, not familure with the acer. The key usually has either CRT/LCD printed on it, or two monitors on it, one its just an outline of a monitor and the other is filled in. This will run you laptop through the three monitor options it has. (LCD - LCD & External - Just External)

2. Try closing and opening the lid of your laptop. Sounds a bit strange but it works sometimes for me. My guess is when you close you screen it would "dim/turn off" the LCD and re-opening it convinces it to turn the screen back on.

Hope this helps!

White screen


This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.
