Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 3010 Notebook ?

Acer laptop i have an acer aspire that has a problem with the screen, it keeps flickering purple when it gets warmed up. is it vag card related?]

Answers :

It may be the video memory on the system board. Or it may be a loose/bad LCD cable.
\015\012Hook up an external monitor and see it it does the same on it. If it does it's the video memory, if it does not, then it is a loose cable or the LCD itself.
\015\012If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
