Hello everyone. My wife has an Acer Aspire one netbook that has a flickering 10.1 inch LCD. What is going on? The machine has not been dropped nor has anything spilled on it that I know of. I am unsure of what is inside the case as far as video card, etc. It has WinXP home. What should I look at first, 2nd, etc?

well, sounds to me like the LCD is going out and will need replaced. if it is still under warranty I would contact ACER and have them fix it. If not, I would find a local computer shop to replace it, unless you feel like doing it yourself, which is very difficult to do on a laptop.

it is under warranty and we have the receipt of purchase. The warranty books says to contact Acer via a phone call or online ticket. We will look into that and see what happens. :thumbsup: Thanks for the help.

I had a similar problem with my acer aspire one netbook (approx - two yrs old)

Horizontal lines dancing across the screen every few minutes.

after adjusting the screen settings (brightness / contrast etc..) with no success - I noticed that squeezing the frame around the screen stopped the problem temporarily - the key area was the 'hinge' connecting the screen and keyboard.

I then used a small / medium sized 'bull-clip' ( approx 3 cm )- the type sold in stationary shops - to keep the frame squeezed together. I attached it to the screen frame next to the hinge - in the area between the two hinges - it was a little difficult to attach on my model.

I don't know why this worked on my model - but don't care.

that was about one week ago - not one flicker since then - completely fixed ( or so far, so good?)

good luck

even if the problem is the connector, it is still wise to get it fixed under warranty if possible. ;)
