Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 340T Notebook ?

My Acer 340T powers on and then the screen gets beautiful stripes but nothing else...is this fixable or do I now have a paperweight?

Answers :

Try removing the ram sticks one at a time in between power ups....sometimes a bad ram stick will cause you to have video problems.
It depends really. If you can still see the post/splash screen clearly then the problem will just be bad display drivers.

Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on My Computer (XP) Computer (Vista) and select manage from the sub menu.
When the window pops up select Device Manager.
A\015\012device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display\015\012Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands.\015\012Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode.
If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it.
I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the Acer support website.
