Q:I have an acer aspire 5040 laptop, and have had the lcd screen replaced after only 6 months owning it. Now again approximately 4 months later it is freezing and the screen goes fuzzy with horizontal lines, why is this happening?I have the Aspire 5100 and aspire 5000 laptop batteries. The same thing is happening to me. It's not a hardware issue, it's the driver. I had purchased this with Vista and downgraded it to XP. The drivers all seem to be good, but the LCD panel is running on the generic driver with the only frequency choice set to 60KHz. I'm looking all over the place for an XGA 15.4" LCD panel driver for XP and can't find it. Acer online doesn't have anything.
If I put the original OS back on, the problem goes away.
1.Yea that sucks! If it does not work again then you outta try to fix it urself! idk! I think there are websites that tell you how and all you need to do is buy a lcd screen!
2. hmmmmm....u might want to take it back and have it checked! How long have you had the warrenty?
3.Yeah it is going to be sent off in the morning but in order for it obtain lemon status it has to happen 4 times! What a crock, I mean come on! I cannot live without it really due to a tight school and work schedual and the amount of money paid for it, sigh.
4.Well, it was under acer warranty the first time and as soon as it expired for the repair it happened again and now it is under another warranty service and I have to send it to nexicare to repair. I Know it is messed up but need more than that! lol, not to mention fiance bought it for like 2 grand!
5.Just geussing but i had the samething happen to my phone. I plugged it up the wroung way and the screen messed up! My phone had horizontal lines too!
