Hi all,

I have an Acer Aspire 5002WLMi notebook with an AMD Turion 64 ml-30 processor. I have had it about 2.5 years, and have recently noticed that the LCD screen is starting to become slightly blurred - images are still fine, but words are noticeably blurred on approximately every other line.

Now I know this is probably just normal wear and tear; and that the laptop is simply getting older and will need replacing in a year or so. I was wondering, however, whether there are any driver downloads or other software I could get my hands on to halt, slow-down or solve the blurring process.

Any information would be very much appreciated.

Cheers, guys.

Do you have the serial number for the unit? I can't find that model on their site. Was this model purchased in the US or somewhere else? It's possible you screen resolution might be off a bit
Since you said it's mainly text that's the problem, you could try Microsoft's Clear Type. You can tweak a lot of display settings with it

Thanks for the info, garmanma, Clear Type does help out with the text.

I purchased the Acer in Canada, and when I go to the website my notebook is listed under Aspire 5000.

Appreciate the help.
