forward slash button almost always right next to the shift key on the right side of the keyboard

Acer Aspire... | Answered on Dec 24, 2018

the laptop if older than 2009 , (NO PC stated.)
will have bad CCFL back lamps.
remove the big battery now,
run on AC pack only
still dead screen?
the fan must blow, seen/heard or better felt.
if fan is dead PC needs service, ask
if fan blows test the screen with a flashlight in dim room.
if you see data now, with the flashlight, the CCFL tubes DIED.

Allen Bolderoff wants answers to this question hyjackes, 2013 post in 2018? no time stamp, who knows? but you ask because, Acer has no service manuals. remove what cover to reach what? what is bad? the battery ? Acer Aspire Z3771-UR30P

we can not tell what you can do ever. (be god like that) but we tell you to ask on acer forum. we are not acer. or how test it, do you want to learn testing? that it. no shops in town to fix this PC? NO PC stated (OF 10,000 MODELS) NO OS state so no answers possible. (but generic) Fast boot is w10, so turn off fastboot that causes windows to load fresh, and clean. do that is many ways, here is alist in my PC it is also in the BIOS pages too.. fast boot. BASICALLY WE GO TO SAFE MODE. w10 made this hard to do, F8 key is now dead.for w10 just for funs and giggles they did that. but SAFE boot is still valid. the PC can have a bad HDD, we test it first, ask how, with smart app' then try to do the recovery mode.
the PC has strick 3 your out mode, boot 3 times and on 3rd failure you see the windows recovery mode POP the silly blue screens click set advanced options click startup settings click enable safe mode, and click restart

    so no English?, OK I'll nibble the hook...
    so I google translated it for you like this: I added punc.
    "My pc is down.
    fan and hard drive turn around, but nothing on the screen.I would like to know if it is the motherboard or the processor: 1333 Acer Q45T-AM V: 1.1 15-V59-011100 DDR3"
    if the processor is on the qualified processor list then the processor is good, with heat sink and fan, never missing.

    first of all the actual PC is not stated, you post only a RAW motherboard and then not show a photo of it in use.
    so answers are hard won, and log... if at all.
    no monitor stated, no PSU stated, no cables types stated,
    VGA? DVI., HDMI> ? on board video jack or PCI video card?

    so is it CPU bad/wrong or fan dead?
    is it mobo bad
    is it monitor gbad
    is it DDR stick bad.
    is it VGA port dead on mobo or cable.
    is it PSU dead.
    6 possible things not 2.

    one more the power pin must be jumped, for 7 things wrong.
    8 possible if using VGA card.
    there is no PSU aux jack so no newer v2.2 PSU needed.

    old post and NO OS stated.
    is this it the true name>? must said first as fixya does not have all 10,000 names for acer PCs here. so must be said first.

    Acer eMachines E725-4520 Notebook (the dash matters)
    acer both them and gateway and packard bell long ago.
    2009 made states your manual.

    runnng VISTA , unstated by you and IS KEY fact ? what OS?

    ok lines are 2 reasons,
    1: overheated PC. ever clean it in last decade? fully, all vent paths all.
    2: bad LCD, 2008 bad GPU, sold by many. then., all bad.

    if this is your GPU it is ok. but nVidia 2008, is no good. Intel GMA 4500M
    your GPU is this, if you told last 4 digit of model correctly 4520

    tad older post but not too old, and ignored.
    it's an old monitor lucky you it works at all,
    after all most are dead now, 99%
    15 years old today.
    if the OSD is dead under 10second from, power on
    the Montors CCFL tubes are dead.
    the fail these ways
    1: dead for ever.
    2: work intermitantly (you)
    3:Strobes.(means flashing like in a DISCO)
    4: only 1/2 screen dead, (2 tube displays)
    5; turn yellow, for white
    6: dim, for ver.

    never seen any 15 year old CCFL screens good.
    not me unless parked on self for 10 years.
    the clue is on last page, in your manual, the word "
    mercury Hg toxic, it's there, means CCLF tubes here)
    the cure is 2010 or newer monitors with LED back lamps
    do that now, end the pain of #1 soon to happen.

    Acer AL1912 19"... | Answered on Dec 14, 2018

    old post, doing all 2018,
    that is NOT the full model number, why post lacking that
    or what OS you run ,windows, what?
    ok windows login works, but what is a TILE?
    ok this is simple really, you slammed the OS some way.
    that means changed OS in wrong way.
    NO OS stated, but now the video driver is WRONG
    my guess is the resolution is in safe ,mode 800.600 and sure
    is no good for most apps. sure.
    not known the real name of this PC means I have to look them up backwards at, a real pain that is.
    ok, me fooling about on ebay, it is and
    Acer Aspire One AOA150 (for sure)
    it came new with XP ONLY, so still running XP the virus magnet
    that it?
    here it is, click vga and load that.
    if you upgraded to Vista or newer this will fail\
    click control panel then click system
    BINGO your OS is told to you, now , never post
    computers questions lacking that KEY FACT, or answers will be wrong or ignored just like this one was for 12 months.

    old post but the F20 has CCFL lamps and all are dead now
    if used 10hr/day for 5 year they die, all do that.
    if the flashlight test passes (see data on screen with Menu button pressed over and over the CCFL tubes died.
    buy a LCD monitor 2010 or newer and with LED
    end the pain of CCFL now. like most have now./

    it is at least 12 years old today, amazon reviews
    the silly book on it has no date (very rare that)
    2006 is OLD!
