I have an aspire 3610 its around 18 months old, last night the screen went blank, although thats what i thought, if you look closely everything is still there, its as though the lights have gone out. Anyway, i powered down and rebooted, the screen came back on, but went dark again within 20 seconds. If i use the laptop without the ac adapter in it will work ok? as soon as i plug in the ac it goes dark again? the battery only lasts about 30 mins total, on start up the screen has a bit of an orange tint, which dissapears once loaded. THe laptop goes dark straight away if i remove the battery and only power up with the ac cord. Im desparate for a solution or advice, as all my worko is on the laptop and i cant afford a new one. any suggestions would be received with thanks, Tracy

Re: acer aspire 3610 graphic or battery problem?
It sounds like your backlight is damaged.
On some units this can be replaced on its own. On others, it requires the entire LCD to be replaced.
I'll see if I can find out which this is, in your case, and find you a part number.

The motherboard manufacturers are Phenoix, as it says on bootup. I'm not sure if you can recover the BIOS password by simple keystrokes/buffer overflows anymore, although I heard that some motherboards still have the password running in volatile memory, meaning that if you remove the battery it could reset the password (along with any custom settings and the clock).
Its time for a new battery. After a period of time of using a battery, the amount of charge it can hold depletes. Even if you always have it plugged in. Usually, batteries only last 18-24 months which is sad, seeing how much they cost. I'm a computer tech and see this problem everyday first hand. The best thing you can do is buy a battery from eBay and save yourself a bunch of money. Local retail stores charge up to 3 times as much for a battery. Good luck and I hope this helps..... :>)
I can't forsee a problem but I'd backup my system and buy a backup battery if it were my system. There are so many computer parts/battery stores online these days but I can't recommend any particular one. Shop around and do some price comparisons. I've had luck buying batteries on ebay, but use caution there or you might end up buying a battery that's deader than yours. Cheers, Rick
