They may be correct, although you can try pressing F8 on boot up and and enter safe mode. When in the menu choose 'Last Known Good configuration' and press enter, allow a reboot and hopefully you get into windows. It may also be the boot.ini which is damaged at tells the harddrive where windows is, but you will need your Windows disc to repair the system.

  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the device ON

Acer aspire 1690 laptop can't complete the booting process and restarts automatically. During the booting process, it shows XP windows but can not boot to the desktop and shows a blue screen but the...

blue screen in XP is usually due to hardware issues. Did you add or change hardware? By now, probably your only solution is to repair windows XP by putting in the XP setup disk and get to repair. If you do the install, it will format your hard drive and you will lose your programs and files.

My 1690 don't start black screen.

There could be a couple of reason why laptop didn't start-up. Basic: the battery is dead and need to be recharged. Possibly the battery isn't keeping charge and the AC power charge is un-plug from the wall. Leaving the laptop without power. Make sure everything is plugged in and try to power it up. It that doesn't work then it could be the power supply in the laptop it self. Good Luck!!!

ACER ASPIRE HAS NO DISPLAY

Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

Aspire 1690 - Backlight on screen is failing Rose

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
