Exactly whst is howing, just an empty windows screen? Reboot your pc and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 key. This will take you to a boot option list. Select last known good configuration. See what happens. If that doesn't work. reboot again and hit the F8 key again, this time choosing safe mode. If it boots into safe mode do a system restore. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Look at the dates and see if something was installed on a date a day or two ago. Pick a date before that. If nothing was, pick a date about two days ago when everything was running fine. The system will then reboot itself and tell you if it was successful. If it is running ok do a complete virus scan and anti-spyware check. If you need these programs I can tell you where to get good ones for free. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate yet. Just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. If you need those programs just add a comment also. Thanks.

When I connect my laptop to a desktop monitor's hdmi port, why does the desktop's keyboard and mouse stop working ? On switching back to desktop mode, they start working. Please suggest urgently.


A monitor can only show one screen at a time. If you connect your laptop to your monitor, it will only show your laptop, not your desktop. That is why your desktop mouse and keyboard don't seem to respond. You won't see them on your monitor if you have the laptop plugged into it.

My laptop wont show any icons on the desktop and it wont do anything but show my background and mouse.


Hello, If your laptop shows something on your desktop before and suddenly it just stop showing things then right click on your desktop,under VIEW, click on SHOW DESKTOP ICON. If this does not work then your laptop has been infected with Virus.You need to get a good anti-virus to remove the virus or format your system. Regards

My computer switches on but the screen is almost blank. You can see the acer logo and the windows logo show up on it when you switch it on but just barely. The screen is very dark.


Unfortunately I have some bad news. This means your 'backlight' on your LCD panel is burnt out. This can be fixed, but often it isn't worth the work. If you still want to use this laptop, you can hook up an Desktop LCD Monitor to the laptop and use it like a desktop computer, with a USB Keyboard and mouse, but sadly the LCD backlight is fried. I've lost 2 laptops to this.
