Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5033 Notebook

1 Answer

Display problem My ACER 5100 is playing up. The LCD won't display anything it powers up to a grey colour and I can adjust the brightness by the keyboard but no display. A remote monitor plugged into the SVGA socket will work. Any help appreciated

    Thanks for that but I've just realised I amde a mistake it's not a 5100 but a 5000 would this make any difference to the diagnosis?

Hi I have just bought an Acer Aspire Z5710 all-in-one PC. I find the screen too bright when working for long, and want to adjust the brightness. But i am not able to figure out how to do so. And there is...


I have looked at all of the available pictures of this model PC and all of the images show a Fn key on the lower left side of the keyboard. It is one key to the right of the Ctrl key (the bottom right key on the keyboard)

Let me know if you need anything else.

The screen on my aspire 5100 is so dark i can hardly see it


hi mary welcome to the forum! 1)you have an Fn key bottom row left, hold down while also pressing right arrow, bottom right. Each press increases brightness. Each press of left arrow decreases brightness. 2)go to the manual of Aspire 5100 that you there is the option "AcerClearVision" in the software "AcerArcade". See manual:"Acer Clear Vision is a video enhancement technology that detects video content and dynamically adjusts the brightness/contrast/saturation levels so that you do not need to change the color settings if the movie you are watching contains scenes that are overly dark or too bright." So you opened "AcerArcade". There you take: "movie or cinema--> settings -->display settings" en there you change in the option 'color profile' 'ClearVision' to 'Original'.

Very low brightness


1. try to adjust using KEYs Fn+arrows to the right or left.

2. The components that provide the brightness are the "inverter" and the "flourscent backlight tube". Inverters are known to be problematic,so I would suspect the inverter first.The inverter is in the bottom of your screens plastic housing.It's very easy to replace and it usually costs between $40 and $60.

Acer aspire 5043wlmi laptop starts but know function of lcd but works on desktop monitor


The computer's power management system automatically dims the screen when using battery power, which is one of the power-saving features.
To adjust the brightness:
  • Hold down the Fn Key located at bottom left of your keyboard next to the Ctrl key, and adjust the screen brightness using the left/right arrow keys located at the bottom right of the keyboard.
If that's not it then

A dim or dark screen does not necessarily mean a bad inverter! It could be a faulty lcd backlight bulb, inverter cable, inverter, or in some cases a motherboard failure. If your still under warranty then I would get Acer support on the phone and see what they can do.
An Inverter converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).

it depends on what your using it for, adjust colour tones to what you think looks natural, contrast between 80-90, keep sharpness below 30. just have a play around till you find what best suits the source material.
