There could be a motherboard problem or a screen problem, but everyproblem with the screen on my acer laptop was fixed on the motherboard, so you should probably take it in a repair shop

Acer have all the drivers on their website. You can go there - Acer.com and select Support / downloads and search for your model. then select OS - XP,VISTA, WIN7/8 and download and run.

This unit was shipped with P home edition and would have been supplied with possibly 4 CD's (system disk and 3 recovery disks) All the drivers and applications will be on the system disk, you need to insert cd into drive and it will autoboot and select the sound drivers, if still not working then possibly windows is corrupted and you will need to recover the notebook by booting from system cd at startup then follow onscreen instructions, hope this helps.

Hi there,1 long 2 short is almost always video/RAM related, if you've replaced the RAM, the it's most likely the mainboard that the RAM connects to.Unfortunately the portege's always have very expensive replacement parts, you're probably looking at about $300 for a new board and then whoever you buy it from will add a large markup. Be careful buying boards for Toshiba's off of ebay as they quite often use variations on the same board for multiple models. You'll find a large model number on the bottom of the machine starting with PS this will help you track down a board if you want to.I would reccomend a new computer.Thanks,Liam.

Disconnect the power adapter.

Remove battery

Remove Monitor screws in hinges.

Remove Strip with Power-On button - feels sticky

Remove keyboard screws

Remove keyboard - may need gentle side to side movement

Remove optical drive screw

Hope this helps.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

You should be able to get XP 32-bit SP3 added. However, Windows Update will not work with XP SP2. Thus you will need to manually download the update and then install it. This is the link to the update: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24 . Click on the Download button. This is the version usually used for computers that aren't on a network. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells (the Acer 1640z came with XP SP2; most computer companies support all of the service packs for their originally installed OS.)
