Acer aspire 3680 MONITOR backlighting problem.

My Acer aspire 3680 laptop display has turned dull red, i cant see the image correctly but when i connect it to a external monitor every thing works perfectly.

This happened as i was watching a movie, it initially turned yellow then the screen when dark but could see the image faintly but turned into dull red after formating and doing a new installation.

after checking on the net for possible problems, i found out that it might be either a burnt out back light or a bad inventer but that was for a dell laptop.

i want to know what is the cause for the change in my display and how can i fix it.

Am in Ghana/west Africa

please help am desperate

    My screen is just very dull. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about computers, all I've tried is adjusting the screen in 'Control Panel' in 'Display'. Help! I'm hoping its something simple I can correct myself. Thanks!

Dull screen can also mean, that you have changed your power settings to balanced or power for maximum use change it to full power.

You could have a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
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.

Both screens wont work


No mention of how much ram installed ???

Are you using ACER GRIDVISTA
This program handles the multi screen out put

or

Standard Screen Properties,,,,,,,

Try this

DESKTOP>Right click properties
DISPLAY PROPERTIES>Settings

With both screens connected.
There should be two windows displayed ,
a highlighted white one and a grey one

Click IDENTIFY.

ONE SCREEN-
Should display a number 1 on the screen it has attached.
TWO SCREEN
Should display a number 2 on the external screen.

Once you get IDENTIFY to work then set resolution sizes of both individual screen.Apply and ok to save settings

If using GRIDVISTA then set the setting for the output functions and save theme as a theme BOTH or LAPTOP AND EXTERNAL MONITOR and its accessible from the desktop right click.

Good luck I have a couple of these I use for my Media Centre wirelessly networked thru the house.Great machines.
