Acer 1810TZ screen doesn't display anything | Joachim De Zutter
Netbook Model: Acer Aspire 1810TZ-413G32n
Problem description: the screen stays black after the power button is pressed while the external power adapter is used.
The Caps Lock and Num Lock LEDs flash, then the HDD LED lights up for a few seconds. The power LED stays on. At least one fan is spinning. The netbook produces heat. When the netbook is restarted after connecting an external monitor, that monitor doesn't receive a signal.
The hardware problem was fixed by repairing the damage that was caused by a short circuit.
