Having problems with your Acer Aspire 1800 Notebook ?

I have an Acer Aspire 1800. The lcd is blank at power on. I can hear the hdd spinning. I tried to connect to ext mon via vga but without a shortcut cannot switch to ext mon. am i screwed?

Answers :

Honestly, try flashing the bios. These things have happened to me before. I had no lcd, then flashed and it worked, then the power button wouldnt turn on, and a flash worked. Then the hard drive failed <_<
Try to reboot your system in save mode ,if it does not work it may be the settings on your vedio card !!!!
