So after a power up we can deduct that its not a hard drive problem because you have managed to successfully attach an external LCD screen to the system.

It may not nessacarily be the end , laptops are mobile machines and time to time plugs and sockets don't hold their devices in place and in your case most probably one of the two connectors on your laptops LCD screen.

It could possibly be one of these 3 things

1. The ribbon connector which carry's the video signal to your LCD screen has become dislodged you will need to open up your laptop and check this and make sure its seated in its interface properly. This is usually located in the spine of the laptop

2. The power connector on the LCD screen itself which is a small black 3 pronged plug has become loose also open up your laptop and check this

3. when the computer has had time to boot press the fn + F6 on your keyboard , you may have to press this a few times but this is the manual LCD screen off and on button

Tell me how this goes

Cheers

Hi this is prince here from Bangladesh. i have a laptop that is acer travel mate 420. a few days ago its display is not working properly. some times it turn into various color. so what can i do?


Hi Prince, has your laptop experienced a squeeze or fall recently? I have a few suggestions. Plug another monitor into the VGA or DVI connection on your laptop. See if you are getting the same problem. If everything is working fine on the external monitor you would have eliminated the drivers being the problem. I suggest getting the LCD display changed. If your laptop is under warranty, you can get this done for free. However, if it is not under warranty you may have to replace it either yourself or take it to a local Acer specialist. If you chose to install the new display yourself, there are handy tutorials on removing and installing the screen on the Acer website. I have noticed that many times the Acer TravelMate Notebooks have experienced display issues. I hope you get your problem resolved soon.
Thanks for using FixYa.com!!

Acer travelmate 8006lmi when turned on only the power light and dvd drive work nothing on the display and nothing if you connect an external monitor either


The graphic chip is dead. replace the motherboard or reflow the graphic chip. I am not fan of BGA reflow. The seldom last beyond 90days.

Good Luck

Acer travelmate 2440 theres power only the screen its pure black.


Try reseating the RAM modules first. The RAM may be faulty or reseating to make proper electrical connection. Get the RAM tested in another laptop or at your friendly computer shop.
Can you get into the BIOS configuration?
Did you power up the monitor first then the laptop? This method will divert the video information to the external video port first automatically.
If you don't get an image on the monitor and the hard drive doesn't appear to be spinning, then you could have a faulty motherboard.

Acer Travelmate 201T most times no display


If the backlight is coming on its not the inverter, check the ribbon cable for the screen itself, If its been opened and closed alot maybe be time to replace the screen. Check connections first, go from there.

Connecting samsung monitor to my laptop


Assuming you are connecting the mointor to DVI or VGA cable. You can connect the monitor through windows. In vista, right click, personalize, display settings, You should see a greyed out monitor. Click extened the desktop onto this monitor, It should automaticaly detect itself.
In xp its similar. Right click on desktop, go to properties. You should see a screen pop up. Go to the last tab. it should be monitor. Click on teh greyed out area and click Extend the display to this monitor.
