I have a BL51 Acer Aspire. When I power it up the screen is just blank. I do see the light on showing HD activity,but nothing on the screen. My first thought would be a faulty LCD inverter! But I don't want to just start replacing parts that may or may not fix the problem. The only thing I know to try last but not least,would be to hook up an external monitor to it and see what happens! Any suggestions???
