    laptop monitor is fucked

    if i close and open the lid, i'll see the display for a matter of seconds before the screen appears to go blank. I can just about make out an image if i hold a bright light to the display. Suggestions?

    If you take the front panel off your screen you'll be left with the screen and the fixtures holding it to the lid, you should see a little circuit board probably below the screen. Thats the inverter board, check for any signs of damage (burns are a dead giveaway), have a look online for a replacement inverter board, theyre dirt cheap, so even if it isnt that (which im sure it is right now) you got one just in case.

    Highly unlikely the backlight or screen itself is dead, my money is on the inverter board.


    The inverter board will look like this

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acer-Aspir...#ht_1625wt_952

    (btw dont pay that for it, look for more around the 15-20 mark).
