20 Most Recent Acer Extensa 710TE Notebook Questions & Answers


most likely:

1. backlight is dead (search for replacement displays).

2. backlight power-inverter is dead (check ebay for your model +inverter to see if there is even one in your model)

3. (very unlikely) wires which power the backlight may be worn from bending over time.

for the time-being, connect an external monitor, if possible, so you can access your system. connect it, power-on, and it should work by default -if not, hold the Fn key and press F8 (usually this key) to enable external display output.

and.. good luck!

Yes, you do have to take it apart. How do you know the cmos battery is bad? Is the time wrong all of the time??Does the BIOS default all the time??

Try opening the 'computer' icon - normally shows as an icon on your desktop or in start menu then you will hopefully see the flash drive listed along with C Drive, CD Drive etc. Double click or right click and open - this should let you see and open individual files on the flash.

if you want to boot a computer from the usb you will have to go into the bios and set the boot media ( HD, CD, USB) so that the computer knows where to search for the os.

There are more than one possibility for this scenario (settings, cable, lamp):

•The display is not set as the primary or active display (such as is the case when set to view in projector-only display mode). Many laptops have either a Function key (such as F4) or a hotkey expressly set aside for presentations (usually at the top right with two other hotkeys). Newer operating Windows systems allow for changing the display mode through holding a Windows key down while pressing the [P] key.

•The monitor data cable is damaged. Sometimes, this can be tested by changing the vertical angle of the display to see if the display shows. (In this case, replace the display data cable.)

•The lamp inside/behind/above/below the display could be going out. (In this case, replace the display lamp.)

The easiest way to test & to give a temporary workaround would be to hook an external monitor to the laptop & to turn on both devices to ascertain if the video output shows on it.

If all else fails, then take it to a technician because the system board could be bad.

Check the hard drive might be defect or loose from the hard drive connector. If the hard drive is detected in BIOS probably the hard drive is out of order
