Hi trying to fix this for a friend and to be honest have tried EVERYTHING! Stripped it down ( a few times now!) nothing broken as far as i can tell. I have redone the thermal compound AND even give it the once over with a heatgun! the thing boots the screen goes grey (backlight?) and the HD light blinks away so it seems to load the OS. But NO picture!?

I have tried the BIOS recovery (ESC & Fn) with a new copy of the BIOS and a program called FLASH IT. And this does nothing (yes i have formatted the stick to FAT not FAT32:D). I left it running overnight and nothing changed. *Side note I HATE ACER'S WEBSITE i can't even find any support for this thing (i know it's old but!!) and half of the links throw up 404's!!

I have advised him it MAY be the screen but don't want him to waste £30 WHEN IT COULD BE SOMETHING ELSE! Any ideas anyone (i HATE laptops/notebooks/netbooks personally as they are a real PAIN to work on!).

Thanx.
