Having problems with your Acer Extensa 5420-5687 Notebook ?

When I am using 5420 screen just blacks out

\015 Pc blacks out and i cannot do anything to get back up so i have to shut it down manually which brings up black screen telling me windows shut down improperly and asks if I WANT TO START UP IN SAFE MODE.\015

Answers :

Are you running XP or Vista
Does it black out before windows boots up or after windows has started? Have you updated any motherboard drivers that may have caused the problem? Have there been any windows updates right before the problems started? You could try using windows restore to take the computer back to a state before the screen issue. Try booting up in low res mode and see if it works. Then increase the resoloution up and see if it locks up. A program that is starting up with windows could cause this problem. Check windows start up folder and see what programs are starting with windows and diable the ones you can.
