Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

Dc connection overheating

\015 We had a bad connection with the dc board, had acer replace the dc board once. Problem started again, this time it caused it to get really hot, with a horrible burning smell. We unplugged the laptop and shut the lid till the next morning. When i went to open the laptop and after I turned it on, there was a 2 inch white stripe running down one side. Sent it to Acer for repair. They are tellling me that this was neglect. That I had to of damaged the lcd screen. The heat would not do this. I have read several articles about Dell having this same problem. Of course, Acer will not repair it, well for $700. I did not do any type of abuse, neglect, spill, drop nothing to this computer. It had to of happend due to the heat. What do you think.\015

Answers :

Well if , the stripe u're talking about is a crack in the display, than it;s not caused by heat or electrical surge... If not, than u can go to a technical evaluator, and than if u have the time and money make an official complaint ....(if it's still in warranty..)...and recuperate u;re financial damage...

If not, just find a second hand display, and change it u;re self, it's easy !

(The adaptor into the laptop gets so hot that it is almost too hot to touch) Also the screen will go black after a few minutes of use, and will only come back if lid is closed for a few minutes. If I unplug it, and then use it - it operates fine. Do I need to replace the connection and/or the adaptor?
