Acer Laptop - Blank Screen
I have been handed an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop from a friend who has purchased a new one, but there is an issue with the laptop...hence them getting a new one.
when the laptop turns on, the fan comes on, cd drive makes the usual noise however the screen is completely blank. sometimes the laptop will stay on until i press the power button again, but sometimes it turns off within 4 seconds! every so often when it starts, the caps lock light is on but pressing the key doesn't change anything.
I have ran tests on the HDD and the RAM on different laptops and they have come back clear. the only thing i can think of is a problem with the onboard graphics on the MB.
I have googled this endlessly, found many ppl with the same issue but no proper resolution.
If anyone has experienced this or know of anything i could do, please get in touch.
