When I turn on my laptop (Acer Aspire 5520) everything turns on fine, but the screens compeltely dark or really faint, I hear it may range from a blown bulb, to a inverter problem to wiring problems, but is there anything else that might be causeing it?

    Have you tried to use the external display monitor hook up on the Laptop. If this does work this way - then your inverter may have fried.

If the picture is really faint, it could be a problem with the inverter circuit. A defective backlight bulb would cause a totally dark screen, images may only be visible if you shine a bright flashlight on it.

Unfortunately, a defective inverter circuit may require professional service from a reputable laptop shop of better, support from ACER itself

I have an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop that the sound quite working. I have tried re installing the drivers etc and it will not work.


Hi,

It appears that the Windows is corrupted on your computer, you can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.
Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Flashing the Bios is a LAST DITCH effort to resolve Hardware issues. You should NEVER flash the bios unless you are absolutely certain it's the correct bios for your computer, also NEVER flash bios from within windows..

There may however be a solution for you, Acer laptop computers with the Pheonix BIOS sometimes has a " flashback" feature, allowing you to revert to your original Bios..

You will need to contact Acer to get a Crisis Bios recovery disk from them. Or ask for further information on how exactly to recover from a bad bios flash.

My acer laptop screen is dark


Hello,

If your laptop screen is dark, it could be the backlight,inverter, or bad lcd. You can test the backlight by starting the laptop and give it a few seconds to load and take the laptop in a dark room and shine a flashlight on the lcd and see if you can see any pictures or icons. If you can, you may just need an inverter to correct the issue, If not, you may need to replace the inverter and lcd both.

If you find that you need parts to correct the issue. I would suggest that you begin with replacing the inverter first, as they are usually less expensive.

If you can supply me with the model number of the specific laptop you are having trouble with and I can try to locate more information on replacing the parts.

Thanks

I have another computer it is an acer Aspire 5520 laptop. The computer is online but the computer will not display the internet page so I can't get online.


try turning on the AV scree n and turn off the AV firewall, then turn off (completely) the unit, then start up again...this time try to re-connect to the internet/w the original disk....
on a desktop...there is a modum/ on which you can see a light on if you have a connection...not familiar/w laptop, but if equivalent thing tells you your "on" but you can't get the site on the screen your AV firewall could be blocking it.
My AVG 8.0 has a screen on which you need to select the proper "configuration" (computer in domain) befor it will act correctly...when I didn't, it displaid similar symtoms....
