Question about Acer TravelMate 4000 Notebook
It could be a variety of things, did you hear the other parts spinning and whirring as before? Then it could be just the screen or video card. Try hooking it up to a regular monitor and see if it will display there. Other problems could be HD failure, but usually your computer would freeze on startup or your BIOS will tell you that instead of a blank screen. Have you tried contacting the manufacturer for tech support on the issue? It is hard to diagnose blank screens over the net due to the lack of information you can get (ie. error messgaes, etc.....)

If you're getting ANYTHING readable on the screen, the problem is likely not the screen. Dim screens are one thing, and messed-up screens are likely problems with the physical screen. If nothing's showing, it's likely the connection running through the hinge into the screen, which can be a little tricky on laptops, though the whole connection between motherboard and screen is suspect. This is a problem because the problem isn't always immediately visible even upon opening the laptop. You might do so, if you know what you're doing, in order to examine and reconnect everything. But you're likely going to have to pay to have the wiring repaired (and maybe even the screen itself, though that's far less likely).

Check to see if the DC POWER Jack is loose. HOLD the bottom of the jack slightly tilted upward (do not use a lot of force). While holding PRESS the on button. If it comes on and stays on, you problem is the notorius power jack cold solder issue. The jack will have to be repaired. Either by DELL or a qualified expert that has done a number of these. It is not a easy task by any means. A skilled ELECTRONICS TECHNICAN could do it. But not a Computer Technician, because they generally just replace parts and do not do component level repairs

I am afraid it is not a solution only to repeat the problem I have exaclty the same. It appears to switch on but then nothing not even mumlock light or caps lock light comes on or off

I had the same problem with my C640. What I did was take out the memory chips powered up. Then turn it off and reinstalled the chip, and poof. Every was working. I hope this will save your problem to.

1. Mainboard failed
2. Vga adapter failed
I wouldnt be suprised if the vga failed, my acer broke down on me 2 times, on the 3rd time it was too much and I sold the laptop.

Okay, Here's the deal..... I recently had the same problems with my friends' Acer Extensa laptop and here's what I did to fix it. I narrowed the issue down to two culprits 1. Overheating, 2. Defective Motherboard. I have fixed the problem but I takes time, patience and some technical ability which may not be available to some. :( (Swapping out the motherboard MAY fix the problem but if the defect is in the manufacturing process then the problems could return). Here's how I fixed it... While in the process of disassembly I noticed a small electrolytic capacitor that had seemingly broken off and had become wedged between the frame (<ital>very lucky! this gave me the clue I was looking for!</ital>). This made me think that it had broken off the motherboard. I proceeded to disassemble the laptop and found the location of the missing capacitor (there are two located right next to each other on the board) and was able to re solder the capacitor back onto the motherboard (could it be a manufacturing processing defect thats causing these to break loose? ). Mine was broken off due to what looked like bad solder joints. Your capacitors could still be attached but have weak solder connections. Also while i had access to the motherboard, I used the opportunity to clean and re apply the heat sink compound to the CPU and thoroughly clean the fan vents. I then reassembled the laptop and EVERYTHING has been running fine now for the last 3 days. Total time was about 4hrs and it cost NOTHING to repair. GOOD LUCK :)
