Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Notebook LCD I have a acer aspire 3680 series model. 1. When I turn on the notebook the display doesn't comes properly. Infact any document that I open which has a white background appears with several horizontal coloured lines. After the notebook runs for 5-10 min all the problem with the display goes away automatically. 2. When I turn on my notebook the time in between the screen with the Acer logo and the window XP logo is accompanied with continious beep sound. Please let me know if anything can be done about these problem Thank you Shaunti

The screen problem sounds like a leaky capacitor or other failing component that once warmed up exhibits close enough to the correct values to correct the display problem (this usually progressively worsens with every boot of the laptop until no benefit occurs after warm up).

The beeping sound suggests a hardware error, and could be the keyboard. I have seen this on a Satellite and randomly pressing multiple keys on the keyboard momentarily stopped the beeping and allowed the unit to boot (yours seems to be getting past the error beeps on it's own though, suggesting another culprit). The problem could be bad RAM, so pulling one stick of RAM out at a time and starting the computer will eliminate or confirm the RAM as the problem. Other removable hardware such as the hard drive (you would have to install another hard drive to check this one), wireless card, PCMCIA card/device, USB removable hardware (mice, keyboards, wireless antennas, etc...), should be the first devices disconnected to eliminate as being the cause.

Sounds like a real problem child/laptop. Multiple simultaneous problems are always tougher to troubleshoot as they can compliment/effect each other, so look at the one that occurred first. Good luck!

I have an acer aspire 3680. when i turned it on, the fan,hdd works but the screen turn black. i did try to connect it a VGA screen but i's not on. is it the mainboard problems?


you may consider if no display at LCD and VGA monitor both:
1) you may change RAM or change the RAM slot
2) take out the wireless card from MINI PCI slot
3) still black screen that should be any damage of display chips or isolated memory (all BGA chips)on the motherboard
hope it help you troubleshooting
