Acer lcd monitorX221W : 18 months old, no prior problems. Today, image suddenly went out. Upon restarting, the name ACER comes on , fades after a few seconds, then the prompt to fill in Password. The image decreases in intensity and disappears in seconds. After numerous repeats, turning switch on and off, the same occurs. After image fades, the lime green light at the bottom center front stays on, but no image appears on screen The CD for this application will not play. Thanks...........Hank

Sounds a lot like the backlight for it is just about dead. Nothing you've done can cause this to happen, and it certainly isn't a setting on the monitor or PC.

The backlight can be bought as a part, and replaced by a technician (or yourself if you have a rough idea what you're doing). By the time you find one, buy it, ship it, fit it... it might not be worth your time for the cost of a new 21" widescreen monitor.

You'd probably recoup some loss by selling it as faulty for parts too.

Still, be 100% sure before you do it... borrow a monitor and plug it in. I bet the borrowed monitor won't behave the same way. =-]

Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today. You said that the computer is only 1 month old? It is still under warranty then. Take it back to the store for
refund or exchange. You shouldn't be having this kind of problem with a new computer.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today.

How can I get my webcam working on HP laptop


if you have driver no problem IF not go webside HP download web cam driver >model no

1. Downloaded the file.
2. Unzipped it to a folder on my desktop.
3. Ran the "Setup.exe" file in the folder that got unzipped.
4. Went through the installer until it got to the end and then let it restart my computer.
5. Waited for my computer to restart.
6. It popped up something saying it was installing the drivers for my webcam. Waited until it was done.
7. Opened the Control Panel.
8. Opened the Device Manager.
9. Find my webcam under "Imaging Devices". I noticed it was listed as "HP Pavilion Webcam" despite having just installed the Acer drivers.
10. Right-clicked on my webcam and chose "Update Driver Software..."
11. Chose "Browse my computer for driver software"
12. Chose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
13. Unchecked the "Show compatible hardware" checkbox.
14. Scrolled down to the Chicony manufacturer.
15. Chose the "Acer Crystal Eye webcam.
16. Told it to install anyway when it asked me a question about installing that driver.
17. Waited for the driver to be installed.
18. Noted that my webcam was now listed as an Acer Crystal Eye webcam in Device Manager.

And that was it. It appears to work totally fine now! Again, I have my fingers crossed that it won't suddenly break again, but so far so good.

Forgot to note: This is on a DV6000T running Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium.

You need a higher computer specification for Windows 7.

Acer Aspire T310 is design only for Windows XP Home/Professional and Windows 2000 according to Acer Support Page:

Acer Aspire E500 RAM


This is because your computer is sharing the physical memory with the graphics memory so it will actually subtract the amount of the shared memory from the physical memory in the computer giving you the 780 that you see because the computer reserves a portion of that to use for your graphics.

Does not boot, after turned off suddenly


check to see that it is not overheating. If cpu fan is not blowing (could be frozen up) or if the fan in the power supply is clogged with dust, the computer may be overheating and refusing to some on. If it is dust, arrange to blow it out completely. take off cover and try to start the machine, the fan should turn on the CPU.

Motherboard faulty, repair, scrap machine, or replace motherboard ? What is the cost and complexity to have fitted a new motherboard fitted to a acer as 5101wlm computer?.is ths repair durable and...


Firstly, check to see if your manufacturer's warranty is still active. As long as it is not a custom-made machine, you should still have warranty repair service if you bought a service contract. Most of the time, a service contract comes with the purchase. at 18 months, most contracts will still ship you replacement parts but you will have to put it together.

If the retailer sold you their own custom made computer, then you have very little choice. The repair costs are going to vary according to where you live, but here's a general rule of thumb to go by: If the repairs cost more than 3/4 of that what a comparable replacement PC would cost, then go get a new one. Some stores will give you credit for exchanging old PC's. look around for stores doing that, as this will be the only way to recoup some of your costs.

Altrnatively, you can donate the computer as scrap to local charity who will take it apart and sell the parts. you will get full retail value as a write-of on your tax returns at the end of the year. Of course, this is only helpful if you file itemized deductions.
