Help with my laptop!

Recommended Posts

Hey all...ok so I have an Acer laptop...the thing is designed poorly and has overheated very easily since i got it...so I removed the cover and cleaned it out with air to help with the circulation (which I have done once before)....now it won't boot up :icon_pale:

I can hear the hard drive start...everything is seated properly....but there is no display....i'm wondering what i might have done, and how i can fix it....i'm sure I can find the cd, but i'm thinking something hardware....any suggestions would be muchly appreciated, thx!

ok fallow i think i can help you out

we just need some more information really and bare with us

1st if u hear the hd and stuff like that is cause ur pc is not dead (good sign)

2nd do u have an external port vga port to connecto to a big screen?

if you do try that out, and start your pc with a new screen connected, if nothing comes up in the big screen external, you should have to click some function key and then a special key somewhere in ur keyboard to display in the external screen

if nothing displays please come back to us i got other ideas

yeah thanks peeps...i will try the external monitor, i think my roomate's might work....it seems that the backlight on the monitor is not coming on, and i can hear the HD spinning but it doesn't seem to be making any thinking noises (  :idea: )....i think it has an 8MB ATI laptop video card, i'm not sure if its PCI or integrated....i'll check it out and get back to y'all...thx for the responses

You may want to open it back up and take a look at your connections. Make sure everything is pluged in and in its place. It may be something simple. Loose wire. Something came unpluged. Just an idea.......
