To repair corrupted system file/s, boot up with the Windows installation CD then - Press R to repair when instructed. Press 1 or Enter to repair the C:\Windows folder. Then type chkdsk /r and then press Enter. The repair process will take quite a long time.
According to the Aspire 3000 User Guide, you should be able to use Fn and F5 (not F6) to toggle the display selection. Try that first. If that doesn't resolve the problem...
Your laptop probably has the SiS Mirage 2 graphics processor. It's max resolution is1024 x 768. The Sceptre DCL9C will likely default at 1280
x 1240. Try backing the resolution (in Control Panel) down to 1024 x
768 - for the external monitor. Also, hit the AUTO button on the
monitor. It might reset itself to be compatible with the SiS video. Lastly, download the latest drivers for your OS and the SiS Mirage 2 video adapter.
I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does. Regards, Char1ieJ

Sounds like you might need an inverter for your LCD.
You can purchase one here:
This page shows you how to replace the inverter:
- Did you make any recent software or hardware changes?
- It might be a adware or spyware issue
- The best thing we can do at this point of time is : System Restore
- Boot the system using 'safe mode with command prompt' option
- And execute : '%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe' ; where %systemroot% is the windows folder
Your laptop is trying to boot from lan because it can't for some reasons to boot normally from the hard-disk. Try to listen if when you power on the laptop the hard-disk spins or makes any noises. If not there could be a problem with the connector that links it to the mainboard. If you hear a noise or the hard-disk spins then you may have a corrupted OS (windows) or some bad sectors problems. The best way to find out would be to try to boot the laptop by using a windows instalation cd. Boot from the cd-rom and check to see if the windows installer find your hard-disk and can copy files to it.
You will need to change the boot order from bios to enable the cd-rom to boot first or enter some boot menu (if provided) and select " boot from cd-rom " or such thing.
If you need more help with these please post back or contact me or other experts on the live chat function on this site.
