I have an Acer Aspire ES15 with the Intel CORE 13 inside, but the monitor is black. I tried pushing the reset button on the back but it still isn't working. Can someone please help me with this? It's my son's laptop for school and he needs it ASAP.
1. Turn the laptop off (not sleep or hibernate but off).
2. Connect an external monitor to the laptop.
3. Turn on the external monitor.
4. Turn on the laptop.
NOTE: You may have to press an "external monitor" button. Could be the f4 button or a button with two monitors on it, for the external monitor to work.
If you can see fine on the external monitor, then your attached display, or the ribbon cable that connects it, are your problem.
If you can't see on the external monitor at all, or the problem occurs on the external monitor as well, then it is probably the graphics card/GPU that is the problem, which may require the motherboard be replaced.
Try disconnecting the battery (if you are brave/desperate) , then power on, then connect the mains and try.
If it works with no battery and just mains, plug the battery back in. Hopefully it will be fine.
